County Treasurer Sappington, who brought the injunction suit to preyent the delivery o f $35,- 000 in bonds to Morris Bros., which injunction suit has caused not a little throwing o f bouquets back and fourth between him self and the school board, resents the statement that the dis trict lost $5739. Mr. Sap pington states its a mistake tc count the full twenty years in computing the amount o f inter est that will be paid out, but that ten years is the right period o f time to count, as the district will begin to take up the bonds ten years hence.

ENCAMPMENT DOES a NEWBERG PROUD Forest Grove was thrown into a high state o f excitement Fri day morning, when it was learn ed that the clothing store of John Anderson had been entered Thursday night and a large num ber o f suits and other wearing apparel taken. The robbers effected an en trance by prying up on one of the windows in the rear end of the store building. Some instru ment such Las a crow-bar or chisel, was used. The catch on the top o f the lower sash was loosened, the window raised, and the theif or thieves crawled through the opening and over a work table. The robbers were apparently experienced at the business, as they took time to select just the suits which they desired. They also made a selection o f choice neckties, handkerchiefs, and ather lines o f haberdashery. By unbolting the back door from the inside the robbers were en abled to get away with their plunder without molestation. The robbery was not dis covered until employes ot the store went to open up Friday morning. Mr. Anderson im mediately telephoned to Sherifi Reeves, o f Hillsboro, who came to this city and looked over the grounds for a possible clue. Nightwatch Sexton shadowed a suspicious looking character Fri- lay morning but although the man acted in a queer manner, he was not arrested. No clue o f a iefinite nature has been un earthed. James ¡Joy living or Pacific Avenue, states that he heard and saw an automobile go ing down the street headed to ward Portland, at about two /clo ck Friday morning. Oth r parties have stated they als« heard the car. Telegrams were sent to all nearby towns and cities by the officials, and a sharp watch will be kept, in an sffort to apprehend the theives when they try to dispose Jof the stolen goods. About seventy suits, a baker’s dozen o f over coats and numerous small ar ticles comprised the loot. Mr. Anderson’ s loss willa pproximte The Grand Encampment of the Oregon members o f the G. A.
