THEY HAD A
AT THF H. B. M. A. BANQUET.
Large Attendance, a Splendid
Spread and a Genuine Good
Time for All.
Sixty soven members and
guests of the Hillsboro Business
Sat down to
royal banquet at Hotel Bigelow
last Friday evening, and from
o.oa i. ri lA.ort xi a i
o.ouuuui iv.w uiey leusieu on
the good thing3 prepared by
Landlord Bigelow, made speech-
-'apped jokes and enjoyed
the best kind of a time. TL II.
ureer was loastmaster ana nis
chief aim was to keep someone
talking. After the association
members and their guests were
seated about the handsomely ar
ranged tables. President W. II.
Wehrung delivered a brief ad
dress and made all welcome to
the festive board. Among other
things, he stated that the object
of the spread was to
bring the business men of Hills
boro in closer touch with each
other. In the past they had con
fined themselves more to the
business of making money and
less to friendly intercourse and
he was happy to see so many or
the representative men of the
city together and all with friend-
ly feelings for each other. He
dwelled at some length on the
early closing movement, which
was giving the merchants an op-
portunity to get better acquaint-
edwith their families, and the
clerks a chance to spend their
pveninc-s in a wav they saw fit
Now that this matter had been
nftpr a loni? and at
times a hard struggle, he believ-
ed the association should turn its
attention to the clerks and young
mf.n nf th citv. who were either
boarding at hotels or rooming
outside the influence of the home
library and bowling alley, where
both gentlemen and ladies could
feel free and safe to go. It
would be the means of throwing
around the young men a better
influence and their evenings
could be spent in pleasant quar-
ters or in healthful exercise. He
was confident the city would give
free of charge the room in city
hall for a reading room and as-
sist in the building of a bowling
alley. His remarks were well re-
ceived and were heartily second-
ed by all present.
Mayor Dennis then made a few
remarks along the same line and
assured the association that
their wishes in regard to the
reading room and bowling alley
would receive favorable consid
eration from the city council.
As for himself, he was heartily
in favor of it and would gladly
do all he could to further the
Councilman Homer Emmott al
so felt friendly toward the move
ment and would urge favorable
action at the first meetingr-f the
Laurel M. Hoyt also spoke of
the struggles and triumphs of
the early closing movement, and
endorsed the library and amuse
ment prciositions advanced by
the other members, as did S. T.
Weatherred and several others
who made brief remarks.
The feast was all that could be
desired, and Landlord Bigelow
and his estimable wife are en
titled to great credit for the good
things to which the happy crowd
lost no time in putting out of
sight The tables, two length
wise and one across the front
dining room were beautifully de
corated with smilax, chrysanthe
nims and roses, and presented a
very handsome appearance, and
its beauty and arrangement was
all that could have been desired.
This was the first annual ban
quet of the association, but it
will certainly not be the last for
the enjoyment of all present on
ly cemented the friendly feelings
now existing between our busi
ness men and will result in many
more spreads of "a rake nature.
In fact a lady present suggest
ed that the second annual ban
quet should be left with the
"better half" of the association,
though not members, and the
banquet of 1908 would be one
to be remembered by those for
tunate enough to attend. As
there was no objection to the,
proposition, the ladies will proba

Once Lived at Forest Crove.
News has been received of the
death of S. K. W. Scott, at Du
buque, Iowa, last month. Mr.
Scott was well known in Forest
Grove, having lived there about
six years, and left last June for
his Eastern home. ' He was born
in Circleville, Ohio, in 1843, and
moved with his parents when a
boy to Dubuque. He graduated
from the Cincinnati Medical col-
lege, but instead of practicing
became a prominent railroad man
mTJubuque until his health com
pelled him to give up the work.
He was married to Miss Clara L.
Estes of Philadelphia, who was a
sister of Mrs. A. B. Thomas of
the college city. Mrs. Scott
died several years ago.
Mr. Scott leaves one child,
Miss Elsie, who made her home
with Mr. and Mrs. Thomas for
several years, but is now in St
Paul going to school.
Gaston Girl Missing.
SyboJ Rose, 14 years old, ran
away from her home at Gaston,
last week Tuesday, and saA'e that
she headed for Portland no trace
of her whereabouts has been
found. J. V. Rose, of Gaston,
went to Portland to institute a
search for the missing girl, and
has enlisted the aid of the police
department in his quest The
girl possessed but $1 when she
left her home and from this
amount purchased a ticket for
Portland. She is described by
Rose as being tall for her age.
She wears glasses, and when last
seen wore skirts reaching to her
shoetops, a brown iacket and a
golf cap. She weighs 110 pounds
and has brown hair.
I have a fine new lot of large
handkerchiefs, suitable for sofa
pillows, aprons, fancy bags, etc.
Also some handsome sofa pillow
covers, all ready to use; also all
kinds of fancy work materials.
Mrs. I. Bath.
I will pay market price in cash
for all kinds of chickens, hens, tur
keys, ducks and geese. J. Lenz

The question of forming county
organizations to confer with and
be a part of the state association,
was discussed at some ltngth and it
was decided that the matter should
be brought up at the January meet
ing, when it is hoped favorable ac
tion will be taken and an editorial
association formed in every county
in Oregon, subordinate to thejstate
It was also decided that all ed
itors be requested t0 bring their
wives or best girl to the meeting, as
the committee were of the opinion
that tbe women folks would add
interest to the meeting and were en
titled to an outing anyway.
While this is intended to be a
business gathering, which it is
hoped will be followed by much
good, it was thought best by the
committee to devote Saturday night
to a socal time, place to be named
later; but we are at liberty to say
that there is a rare treat in store for
the ladies and gentlemen who will
stay over Saturday night.
President Woodward will shortly
send out the programs and Corres
ponding Secretary Coe, notify each
committeeman of his appointment
and what is expected of him, and
it is sincerely hoped that every ed
itor in the state will throw all busi
ness cares to the wind for two days
and go to Portland and see if the
Oregon Editorial Association can
not be placed on a firm foundation
and in the future be of some use to
For the benefit oi those who may
have been misled by an article pub
lished in a Portland daily concern
ing the actions of the executive
committee last Saturday night,
we wish to say emphatically that
politics was not mentioned in any
way. "Making politicians Pay"
originated in the brain of a reporter
sent to the meeting to gather facts,
which he failed to do. The sub
ject of "fixing on some definite
policy during the forthcoming state
election, particularly with reference
to a uniform scale of advertising
rates for political 'boosts,' was not
even thought of and at no time dis
cussed; the "foregone conclusion
that the State Association will de
cide on some plan to make the
would-be officeholder 'tap the barT
when he talks political advettislng
to the country newspaper," was a
clear case of "brain storm" on the
part of the reporter, for not a word
of the kind was mentioned In the
committee room, or out of It, for
It was nearly midnight when we
thanked Dr. Coe for his kindly en
tertainment and bade him good
night. He showed us over bis
