All the up-to-date and energetic
business men of this town have
now got their wares in attractive
position for inspection by the holi
dav mirchasers. Much care and
artistic taste have been expended
upon the displays in their show-
windows, and many of them are
greatly admired. The large stocks
they carry are arranged in catchy
shape upon their shelves and
counters and almost compel the
visitors to their stores to look them
over, and frequently cause an ex
clamation of genuine astonishment
at the low prices quoted. Not all
the business places of town are of
this sort; a few have gone way
back yonder and sat down. The
story of the drummer is quite ap
propo in some cases. He said that
he did once call upon a merchant
who did not advertise and found
him busy. This particular mer
chant had a Waterberry watch and
was afflicted with the itch, and
when he wasn't scratching he was
winding the watch. There are
some men in this town who are
trying to do business without ad
vertising. Their places of business
exemplify their methods and they
not infrequently have to pinch
themselves to see if their blood

The end of the Schley court of
inquiry has been reached and the
findings have been given to the
public. The majority report places
censure on Admiral Schley for
eleven counts, while the minority
report by Admiral Dewey ex
honerates him and declares that he
was the senior officer off Santiago,
in absolute command, and entitled
ryo the credit due for the glorious
victory which resulted in the total
destruction of the Spanish ships.
That view of the case has been
generally accepted by the American
people, and no amount of technical
quibbling can controvert it. The
whole case is tersely summed up by
Captain Parker of Schley's council
and will meet the general approval
"i He said: "Admiral Dewey, better
' thati any one else in the world was
'"' qualified to judge this case. He is
the one man living, besides Ad
miral Schley, who conducted
campaign and fought a battle with
modern ships, under modem con
ditions. He probably found there
wns a difference between theory
and practice, and judged Schley in
the light of his own expuience
The two other members of the
court were hich-minded men of
the highest character, and men
who would not misjudge knowingly
or willliitrlv. They never had the
experience the admiral had, and
probably did not see things in the
liirht as he did. We shall
leave the matter to the judgment o
the people of the country, confident
that in tho just popular mind, the
findings of Admiral Dewey will be

tho advisability of increasing
the capital stock $.-00,000 for the
purpose of puichasing the I.anrn
irrnnnc of mines ndiotnmji its
property. Notices were sent out
to till the stockholders to attend a
mettinu for that purpose on Mon
day, the 17th inst. A large num
ber of the stockholders were on
hand when the meeting was called
to order. A resolution was formu
lated covering the action to be
taken, which was fully and care
fully considered, and unanimously
adopted wherebv the Le Roy com
pany absorbs the Laura group of
five claims, consisting ol the Laura,
Laura Extension, Long Tom, Oro.

the company is now $300,000, or
3,000,000 shares at the par value of

this property are to be congratu

of the entire group can be taken
out thiough this tunnel and con

door of the mine. Another shift
of men have been sent up to the
mine and work will go vigorously
forward. As the Le Roy is now
constituted it is one of the best in

district. It adjoins the Helena
No. 2, is on the same lead, carries
the same class of ore and has large
bodies of it, and there is not a
doubt but the future will see the
Le Roy in the front rank of divi

this increased stock has been set
aside as treasury stock, making a
total of 1,050,000 shares in the
treasury stock, to be sold for de

On Wednesday morning a fire
at the reform school near Salem en
tirely destroyed the industrial
building. The water supply being
cut off the entire group of structures
was at the mercy of the fire until
the water tank on the burning
buildtng fell, throwing 25,000
gallons of water on the flames.
Good order and discipline prevailed
among the boys, none attempting
to run away and no one was injured.
The damage will be about $25,000,
partly insured. The origine of the
fire is thought to have been spon

A Walla Walla woman yawned
at a ball recently and it broke up
the dance. She opened her mouth
to the fullest extent, and when she
undertook to close it the hinges
stuck. The jaw absolutely refused
to close, even when considerable
pressure was brought to bear.
When closed by main force the
jaw would immediately fly open as
soon as released. The announce'
ment created intense excitement,
and the dance broke up. A doctor
was called, and the unfortunate
woman removed to her home. Af
