"A Desperate Chance" will be
presented at the Crescent thea

wright Theodore Kremer, after
the escape of those notorious

murder of the old srroceryman.
and from that time on to their
tragic death is fully depicted in
this play. In the drama the
story is told with enough varia-
tions to render it pathetic. It is
a great moral lesson to both
young and old.

tion and nearly all the right-of-way
from Beaverton to Hillsboro

Here is an item that escaped
the reporter last week. Several
young ladies came out from Port
land the day before New Years
to siend the holiday with a
school girl friend here and have
a jolly time, and to make things
livelier and more enjoyable en
listed the services of the "big
brother" of the Hillsboro girl,
who suggested the watching of
the old year out and the new one
in, which was unanimously agreed
to. Now. the father of the Hills
boro girl likes rest and quiet and
the ringing of bells and the fir
ing of guns is very annoying to
him at an hour when sleep is in
order. This the party was well
aware of, so they put up a job on
the old man and during the even
ing of the 31st brought into the
house about a dozen gotxl. healty
loud-tongued cow bells and horns
enough to go around. The alarm
clock was et for 11:45 and the
young ladies hiked off to bed,
just bubbling over with glee.
But sad to relate, the "alarm'
clock failed to "go off" and the
girls slept peacefully until broad
daylight and all through the
greatest din of church bells and
steam whistles ever sounueu
in this citv at midnight. The
"old man" is wearing that

Elmer Johnson, alias Willis,
was run down by Portland detec
tives and captured last luesday
on the farm of James Lee, six
miles west of Gaston, where
Johnson was working as a farm
hand. The crime with which he
is charged was committed about
a year ago, when E. L. Maxwell,
deputy city engineer of Portland
was held up by two men and rob
bed at the muzzle of a revolver,
near the Southern Pacific tracks,
the amount secured being $125.
One of these men, giving his
name as George Frazier, was cap
tured, convicted and given an in
determinate sentence, making a
confession implicating Johnson,
who had disappeared. A short
time ago it was learned that he
was working for Leth who is a
relative. Johnson first asserted
that he had been in British wat
ers for the past year fishing, but
afterward admitted that he was
in Portland when Maxwell was
robbed and was given some of the
money, but denies taking a hand
in the hold-up. He says he is 18
years old, but looks much older,
standing six feet in Ihight and
The city council met in regular
session last Tuesday evening and
in addition to allowing the usual
grist of claims, passed three or
dinances, one accepting land
deeded to the city in west Hills
boro, along the P. R. & N. right
of way; one limiting the number
of saloons to four, and another
permitting the saloons to remain
open until 12 o'clock at night and
open at 5 each morning. The
old ordinance required saloons to
close at 10 o clock. Attorney H.
1. liagley was directed to pre
pare an assessment ordinance
covering the street improvements
on t irst, iiase Line, and 1 hint
streets and the recorder was or
dered to give notice that the
same would be submitted for pas
sage at the February meeting.
The council also discussed the
advisability of substituting saw
dust for wood, as fuel, and the
matter was referred to the water
and light committee for investi
gation. The lighting system is
to be improved by installing a
new and larger dynamo, and the

Tuesday night at 12 o'clock who
came without invitation. Lizzie

are Indians hailing from Quebec,
came to town on the evpninir
train and took up their abode at
the iualatin hote . About 11
o'clock they became alarmed at
hearing footsteps in the hallway
and left to search for nnntW
room. In their wanderings they
came uiwn the Mays residence
where the boy told his mother to
seek shelter on the porch from
the rain while he continued his
search. Mr. Mays came home,
and at his approach the woman
entered the house and run up
stairs where she was captured by
Mays who sought explanation.
In the meantime the lov return

to Marshal Atkinson and hxlged
in jail, and later delivered to the
sheriff. It was at first thought
to be a case of burglary but upon
investigation the stories of the
victims were verified. Thev are

from the auditor of the city of
