honorable discharges will lie issued
to the 67 members of the company as
soon as these can be prepared and

Capt. Milner was here checking
the equipment which it is necessary
to return to the state. There is a
shortage of a considerable amount,
largely made up of uniforms, etc., re
moved from the armory by the men.
It is absolutely necessary that this
be returned. The captain of the
company is personally held responsi
ble for all equipment turned over to
it, and naturally there is an urgent
desire that all of this property be
returned at once, it making no dif
ference what condition it may be in.

After a residence here for 22 years,
K. C. Eldridge and family are moving
to Portland, where a home has been
acquired. The household effects were
taken to the Rose City yesterday by
auto vans.
Mr. Eldridge started the Independ
ence creamery, which has developed
into a highly successful industry. He
disposed of it about three years ago
and since that time he has spent
a good part of his time in Portland,
where he ha business interests, the
family home being maintained here.
Tho Eldridge residence, the finest
in tho city, and built by Mr. Eldridge,
passed into the hands of Dr. Rosen
balm of Portland in a realty deal
consummated several months ago.
The Eldridges have taken a prom
inent place in business and social
affairs of Independence for more than
a score of years and there is regret
their possession.
Dallas A protest against the hold
ing of the roundup on Sunday, class
ing it as a "brute strength on the part
of men and of brutality against dumb
animals" has been filed against the
promoters of the .three days Dallas
roundup, starting Friday, by the
Pallas Mnisterial association. This
protest has been Bent to the county
fair board asking that the grounds
be not used on that day and also to
the city council asking that a license
be not granted. Those having the
affair in charge have secured a two
years' lease of the grounds and the
necessary permit has been granted by
the Dallas city council.

Dallas Tuesday was a red-letter
day at the marriage license counter
at the county court house at Dallas,
when three young couples procured
the necessary documents to entitle
them to entrench upon the matri
monial sea and two of the would-be
were from the school teacher ranks.
Those most concerned in the events
of Tuesday were: Ralph L. Rowland,
an accountant of Falls City, age 21,
to Miss Flora M. Foikk age 19, a
school teacher of Falls City
Victor L. Olson, a fanner of Salem
route 1, age 25, to Helen Eva Schind
ler, a farmerette, age 19, living on
route 1, Salem.
James Denzel Moore, a clerk of
Monmouth, age 22, to Bessie May
Jones, a school teacher of Monmouth,
age 20. The marriage ox Mr. Moore
and Miss Jones came as a surprise
to their many friends and was sol
emnized without the knowledge of
friends or relatives, by Rev. L. V.
Lewis at the Evangelical parsonage
Tuesday evening at 7 o'clock. Mrs.
Moore, nee Jones, ia the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. George W. Jones of
Baker, Oregon, and is a senior at the
Oregon Normal school. She received
her earlier education in the Baker
public and high schools and is now
completing her Normal training in the
Independence .training "school. Mr.
Moore is the son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. A. Moore of Monmouth and a
brother of County Clerk Floyd D.
Moore. He has been a resident of
Monmouth many years and received
his education in the public, high and
Normal schools of that place. He
is a member of the Masonic and Mod
ern Woodmen lodges of Dallas and
is at present employed at the Miller
Merchantile store at Monmouth.
Though the young couple attempted
to keep the marriage a secret they
were greeted with old shoes and rice
in great quantities as they left the
parsonage and later in the evening
their popularity among the Monmouth
younger set brought a large crowd of
merry makers to the Moore residence
south of Monmouth where a charivari
was enjoyed by all and the young
couple bestowed with many wishes
for the future.
Need of Additional Equip
ment Is Pointed Out
in Meeting
McMinnville, To confer with va
rious county central committees ard
party leaders of the state, Walter L.
Tooze, Jr., republican state chairman,
will tour the state soon in the inter
ests of the republican organization.
This will be the first time in the
history of party politics that the
state chairman has ever made such
a trip.
"I believe that proper attention
to the politics of our country is one
of the- most important duties of citi
zenship," said Mr. Tooze, "and inas
much as under our form of govern
ment political parties are necessary,
I am a firm believer in the existence
of two great political organizations,
both strong and virtfe, one a check
upon the other- As citizens, we nec
essarily differ in our opinions upon
public questions, and it is this dif
ference of opinion which gives rise to
political parties As there can be but
two sides to any public question, it
necessarily follows that we have room
for but two great organizations rep
resenting the respective differences
of opinion. Political parties offer us
the only instruments through which
we, as individuals, may apply our
patriotism in times of peace,"
The student body had charge of
chapel exercises Wednesday morn
ing and held a booster meeting for
the Oregon Normal school. Each of
the student body officers made a talk
and each emphasized one particular
way in which the school may be favor
ably , advertised. Additional talks
were made by other members of the
student body and the meeting was
marked by a real enthusiasm. Mrs.
Cox, a graduate of the Eugene Bible
university and a missionary la
Alaska for many years, advocated
that the Oregon Normal school should
formulate the course of study for
Oregon schools.
It was brought out by the various
speakers that the Normal school has
urgent need of more room and a
larger and stronger faculty to care
for the constantly increasing number
who come to prepare themselves for
the teaching profession. Attention
was called to one class in the present
summer session with 175 members.
Particular attention was called to
the urgent need of a new training
school building in Independence. Stu
dents were urged to advertise the
merits of the school in their home
communities and help create a senti
ment that will obtain the support of
the representatives to the legislature.
President Landers made a short
talk and outlined some of the plans
for the institution.
The Ackerman memorial student
loan fund is entirely exhausted and
several students will be obliged to
discontinue their work at the Normal
in consequence, according to an an
nouncement by President Landers.
There are also a number of applica
tions for loans from prospective stu
dents. The loan fund was started
last fall as a memorial to Mr. Acker
man, but the contributions to the
fund have not kept pace with the calls
for loans.
The first six weeks of the summer
session will close Friday and about
350 students will leave for their
homes. Next week additional stu
dents are expected to arrive from
Ashland and Pendleton as the term at
those places lasted only six weeks.
The Monmouth and Independence
training schools and the Mountain
View rural center will be discontinued!
Friday also.
During the last five weeks of the
session school was held every Satur
day. The last half of the summer term
will be shortened to five weeks by
holding classes every Saturday and
the session will close Friday Septem
ber 1. Dean Jessica Todd has made
an arrangement with t the regents
whereby the dormitory will be closed
during the last five weeks, and stu
dents and faculty members will be
obliged to find living accommodations
" Polk county is well represented at
the annual convention of the Ameri
can Legion, which opened yesterday
at The Dalles and will be continued
today and Saturday.
From Dallas there is Ed. Hamilton,

In view of the fact that Independ
ence city council has the auto stage
franchise in . the- process of making,
the following from the Salem States
man will be of particular interest:
J. W. Praker, owner' and general
manager of the Parker stage lines,
yesterday filed suit in the Marion
county circuit court asking for a tem
porary restraining order against the
city of Silverton to prevent it from
enforcing an ordinance passed by the
common council of that place on July
19, in which Parker was granted a
franchise to operate his stages
through that city upon the payment
of the $200 license fee set by the
council. .
In his petition for the restraining
order Parker sets forth that the fee
imposed upon him by the city is
discrimnatory, confiscatory and pro
hibitive in that other bus and stag
lines, operating in that city are as
sessed a fee of only $150 per yef.r.
It is the contention of the petition
er that the city ordinance as passed,
is not legal in that it nullifies all
orders and acts of the public service
commission, under whose supervision
he operates because the franchise
would be profit making to the city of
Hearing of the petition will be held
in circuit court at 10 o'clock this
morning. .
