OLD JURY TO BE DISCHARGED
, NEW LIST NOT COMPLETE.
Judge Holmes to Be Ready For Re
, port Saturday But Few Criminal
; Cases on Calendar.
By an order of District Attorney
"Upjohn ithe Polk county grand juiy
wilt convene at one o'clock next
Thursday afternoon. County Clerk
'Robinson having sent out the notices
'to the grand jurors. The same grand
jury that set in the August term of
court will act 'this week and it is ex
pected that the report of that body
wilt be ready by Saturday when Cir
cuit Judge Holmes will arrive from
;Tilfamook and accept its leport. On
the; following Wednesday,, when the
regular jury convenes a new gran
jury will be selected to sit prior to
; the-February term and the old grand
jury will be discharged. The present
grand jury consists of the following :
,M. A. Burch, foreman; W. J. Barker
;W.;F. Gilliam, J. H. Grounds, T. B
Stone. George C. Smith, Jr., J. T.
A number of cases are coming up
for, consideration. There are tour
:mea in jail awaiting trial including
ing two men alleged to be guilty of
Llareeny of geldings, one alleged for
ger and an alleged wife deserter. It
;is thought probable that there will
be ther cases for consideration, in
cluding that of Justin Hunter, who
lias' been held over under bonds charg
' ed with lanceny.
In addition to these it is thought
there will be at least three or four
imore grand jury investigations. In
eluding what report the inquisitorial
body may make on the public build-
:ings of the county, it is thought that
the grand iury will probably be in
session until Saturady afternoon be
fore making its report to the court.
The grand jury was called early.
after a consultation between Circuit
Judge Holmes and District Attorney
Upjohn for the purpose of materially
expediting business. Inner the law
when a person has been indicted and
arraigned he is entitled to one day in
which to plead. This is generally
taken. Consequently arraignments
of those who may be indicted will
probably be held Saturday afternoon,
requiring pleas to be entered some
time Monday. Following these pleas,
such of those as do not plead guilty
will have their trials set in order
starting with Wednesday morning
when the regular iury meets. This
will give the court an opportunity to
dispose of the criminal cases one after
another, as fast as they may be tried.
The civil jury cases may then be tried
at once, and as there is prospect for
not many of these, it is believed that
the regular jury will be detained but
a comparatively short time.

NEWBERG EASY WINNER
Local Football Team Defeated By
Score of 27 to 0 Cadle and Woods
Saturady afternoon the Dallas high
school football team met defeat in
its first game of the season and the
first game ever played by a Dallas
high school team. The score was 27
to . 0. The Dallas boys played good
ball considering the. fact that none .of.
them had ever played before.
The game started with Newberg
kicking off. . The visitors returned
the ball to the center of the field be
fore losing it on a fumble. The home
boys succeeded in getting close en
ough to score a goal from placement.
There was no more scoring in the
first quarter, but in the second quar
ter Newberg crossed the Dallas boys
line twice but could not score their
goals. In the last half Newberg got
two more touchdowns, but failed to
get either goal. The Dallas boys did
not get nearer to their opponents goal
than the ill) yard line. The Newberg
team are all experienced players and
admitted that the Dallas boys held
them closer than many of the teams
which they play. For Newberg, Mil
ler and Russel, both halfbacks play
ed fast ball. The best playing for
Dallas was done by Cadle who made
yardage many times on line bucks.
Woods out-punted his opponent
throughout the game, making
punt ot 60 yards, all of them gong 50
or better, vv oods also showed up well
on recovering fumbles saving his team
many yards by his fast work. Bai-
laree and Hoisington the Dallas half
backs, both made good end runs. Ma
theny and Gooch played hard at tack
les stopping Newbergs backs for very
short gains. Dennis at center played
a steady game, with Helgerson and
Brock supporting him at guards.
Shepherd, Miles and Miller played the
end positions well. Willson replaced
Brock in the last half. With a little
practice this team will be able to
compete with the best teams in the
valley. What seemed to be the hard
est play for the Dallas boys to stop
was the forward pass, which the New-
beig team worked on them several
times for large gains. The boys did
not seem to understand the most ef
fective way to stop it.
Next Saturday afternoon the Dallas
boys will play the Monmouth high
school team on the Dallas grounds.

DALLAS FIRM IS
J. M. CRAVEN RETIRES SUC
CEEDED BY TRACY STAATS.
Store is One of Best Known Hard
ware Establishments in State New
Member Thorough Business Man.
An important change in the business
personel of Dallas took place last
week when ithe original firm of Cra
ven Bros., was dissolved, and the
business re-incorporated under JthO
name of the Craven Hardware Com
pany. J. M. Craven, the retiring
member of the firm having sold his
interest in the business to Tracy
Staats. The firm of Craven Bros.,
had been in existence five years, pur
chasing the Faull hardware stock in
1!)08. Since then the business has
grown by rapid strides, until today it
is recognized as one ot the leading
hardware stores of the Willamette
Valley. Mr. J. R. Craven, the re
maining member of the firm is nt pres
ent the president of the Oregon Hard
ware Dealers' association.
Tlie new member of the lirm
Tracy Staats, is well known in Poll;

and educated in the public schools of
the county, graduating trom die Ok

Christian Revival a Success.
The revival now in progress at the
Christian church is assuming large
proportions, Sunday was a great day
with two largely attended services.
In the morning the evangelist, Mr.
Brooke, spoke upon the subject:
Character Building" to a large and
appreciative audience, and in the
evening the house was well tilled to
hear his sermon "Why I Believe in
Jesus the Christ." This interesting
anil important subject was t rented in
such an able maimer as to convince
all present of the reasonableness of
the claims of Jesus. A number have
already decided to take a stand for
the higher life and many are think
ing seriously along spiritual lines. The
show of hands each evening indicates
that many are taking a lively interest
in daily bible study. The following
are some of the subjects upon which
the evangelist will speak during (he
coming week: Tuesday evening,
'Hide and Seek"; Wednesday even
ing, "The Wuv of Life"; Thursday
evening, "The Rules of The Game";
Friday evening, "When Pay Day
'nines Around"; Saturday evening.
'The Three Woist Bargains in His
tory"; Sunday morning, "Leather
Spectacles"; Sunday evening. "Is
Jesus The Son of God T" All who
have heard Mr. Brooke are generous
in their praise of his splendid pulpit
ability. Not often is such a series
of sermons presented in general evan
gelism as is being given Dallas K'o
ple by this evnnirelist.
Splendid results have been accom
plished by Mr. G. E. Curtis with his
laige chorus and orchestra. People
are coming early and remaining late
to listen to the music. Those who cn
jov good gospel singing will find great
pleasure in this part of the service
The services close early each evening
making it ossihle for those who
work to attend each service. Seldom
have the eople been detained biter
than it o'clock.
The evangelist has o-ned a ques

on script me questions may thus have
the opportunity to enable the sjieakei
to meet thi-ir special need.

OSWALD WEST AND PARTY TO
GO TO FALLS CITY, SUNDAY
Investigate Feasibility of Placing
Hatchery Under State Supervision
For the purpose of examining the
John Teal fish hatchery above Falls
City, Governor Oswald West with n
party of friends, visited the hatchery
Sunday and also visited some friends
in Dallas. For some time there has
been talk of either placing the Teal
fish hatchery under state supervision,
or purchasing it outright by the state.
The former plan is one that has
reached considerable favor. It is con
sidered doubtful by many of the mem
bers of the State Board ot rish and
Game commissioners and fish and
game experts whether ithere is a
more ideal location in the state ot
Oregon for the propagation of game
trout. County Judge leal has devel
oped a superior hatchery in an ideal
location by his own personal endeav
or and some of the state game and
fish commissioners have declared that
under state supervision better work
could be done along many lines that
is being done even at the immense
state hatchery at Bonneville.
Governor West went over all of
the ponds and examined the location
with an eye to the feasibility of some
plan for its further development, and
while he made no detinue statement
as to what he proposes to do, it is
understood that he will not be averse
to aiding toward placing this Polk
County hatchery under slate super
vision to be developed by the state.
Included in the party visiting tne
hatchery were Governor and Mrs.
West, Col. B. K. Lawson, superin
tendent of the state penitentiary and
Mrs. Lawson and Miss Lilly, Mrs.
Lawson 's sister, Kenton Lawson, Miss
Helen West and District Attorney
Upjohn were also in the party. On
their return' through Dallas the party
visited at the home of 'Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Stiles and at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Upjohn in this city.
Besides Governor West there have
been a number of state officials, in
addition to the members of the State
Board of Fish and Game commission
ers, who have visited and examined
the hatchery and pools.
An effort was made during the last
legislature to secure an appropriation
to place the Teal hatchery under the
supervision of the state. This failed,
however, the legislators in the main
being favorable to the state super
vision plan, but they believed that
ample power and funds are given to
the state board to develop the hatch
ery, if that board sees Ht, and for
this reason considerable interest has
been taken by the officials and board
members in the project.
That eventually ithe plan, or a sim
ilar one, will be carried out seems
practically nssured. But slight op
position has ever developed to it,
while on the other hand there has been
a decided favorable opinion.
The ponds are watered by a natural
spring and there are already thous
ands of fish in them, there being sev
eral thousand trout in one of the
ponds alone. Many of the trout are
from 16 to 18 inches in length.
The Dullas lumber mill has Wen
running a nine hour shift lately on
account of the shortage of logs. The
new logging road to the camp is now
completed and the ten hour shift will
soon be resumed.
Much credit is due Manager George
T. Gerlinger for keeping the mill run
ning, while ho many other mills in the
valley and throughout the emud
country are shutting down.
A record run was made for the new
band saw last Saturday. l!)4 logs were
sawed in nine hours, aggregating over
100.000 feet of lumWr.
The air lifts recently installed by
Chief Gibson are a great improvement
over Uie old style ami very mater
ially increase the efficiency of the ma
chinery. The largest train of logs ever shipp
ed through Dallas passed through yes
terday. The train consisted of 'M
cars and was consigned to the Spauld
ing mill at Salem from its camp at
A new edger has recently Wen in
stalled increasing the capacity of the
mill about 10 per cent.

ing quite equal to his task and hi
work is giving fine satisfaction.
