17th of March was celebiated, even to
a lute hour In the evening and a splen
did Rood time had by alt.
At the banquet In the evening there
was speakitiK by different parties, and
Francis A. McMenamln acted in the ca
pacity of Urns (master. Gathered about
the blK banquet tables were not only
a large number of the members of the
order of Hibernians and their families
but many citizens of the city were
there also as Invited guests. The meet
ing took on( something of the nature
of a presentation of the claims of Ire
land to recognition as an Independent
nation, and much or the history of the
people of that little Island thnt Is suf
fering so much under present condi
tions was presented.
P. I!. D'Arcy of Salem, an Irishman
born in this country, and who, by the
way has been a resident of the city of
Salem for more than a half century
past, was the principal speaker of the
evening. He hnd been preceeded by
John Mollahan, president of the local
Hibernians, and who Is an orator of
much native ability and made a very
forceful address, and Father Cantwi'll
pastor of St. Patrick's church of Hepp
ner. Father Cantwell has not appeared
often In public addresses In lleppner,
but his effort on this occasion shows
him to be an orator of much ability and
he was listened to with intense Inter
est an he presented Ireland's position
and made a plea that her claims be
given the fair and Impartial treatment
at the hands of America that Is char
acteristic of her citizens.
Judge. D'Arcy was a little handicap
ped In his effort as some of the time
that he should have had to bring out
the full force of his address hnd been
consumed and he was obliged to leave
out much that would have been very
Interesting, we are sure. He is a very
gifted and pleasing speaker, and occu
pying the position of a protest ant lie
was prepared to handle the Irish ques
tion purely from the standpoint of its
merits and entirely free of any reliir
lous Mas. His argument was conclu
sive from Ibis standpoint and we are
sure that all those who heard .Inde
D'Arcy on this occasion will hereafter
be safe in asserting that so far as the
Ilritish government in concerned In its
dealings with the Irish people, the mat
ter of religion cuts no figure; Catho
lics and Protestants alike have been
martyrs to the cause of Irish freedom
and have each likewise come under the
condemnation of the British power.
The banquet was a complete success,
the chef at the hotel hnvlng put up a
sprend fl! for the gods. He also caught
the spirit of the occasion, and the green
was made prominent In many of the
courses served. Others on the program
and who delighted the banqueters were
Mrs. R. J. Vnughan, Mrs. Chester Dar
bee and I'ntrida Mahoney, eflch of
them rendering vocal solos that called
forth hearty encores.

Through the klndnesa cf one of the
pupils of the Pine City hlch school we
can Rive the following report of the
play given by the pupile of the school
on the 12th Inst
The play was meant ae a good na-
tured parody on the women'! right
movement. In It the ladies held all
ivll offices and the men attended to
household affaire. M;iry Bartholomew,
alias Kve Greenway, acted as maor
f Pine City and carried off the hor.ora
of the evening. Louis Carlson, alias
Lester Parmenter, made a very domes
tic looking young man In his role of
the mayor's husband. The rest of the
ast held well balanced parts and car
ried out the Idea of "women's rights."
The class realised 174 80 which Is to
lie presented to the school In the form
of a Blcreoptlcan lantern and slides.
Home-made candy was sold between
the acts of the play.
Suffering from Very Severe
Case of Blood Poisoning
C. I. Huston Is confined to his home
In this city, suffering from a very se
vere case of blood poisoning. At the
esent time Mr. Huston Is a very sick
nun, though t Is the opinion of his at
tending physician, Dr. McMurdo, that
the danger point has been passed and
that his patient will fully recover In
due course of time.
It has been about three weeks now
since Mr. Huston, while trimming up
the bcrrv bushes on his place, ran a
small thorn in the Index finger of his
Icht hand. He gave the matter nut
little thought at the time, but the In
jury caused the finger to swell badly
and the result was a serious case of
lnod poisoning. The case was taken
In hand by the pnysician arier mr.
Huston had put In more than a week
of Intense suffering and siecpiess
nights of floor walking, and the doc
tor Is of the opinion that had the prop-
treatment been delayed for another
twenty-four hours It would have been
too late. We are pleased to state that
Mr. Huston Is Improving, though his
progress seems slow.

Oregon's new school district law au
thorised by the passage of House Bill
No. 215 is characterized by prominent
educators and editors as the best school
district law In the United States.
There was a time many years ago
when "the little old red school house"
served the purpose of the then isola
ted communities very well, and there
are some who think It Is still good en
ough. The demand for secondary education
was for .many years supplied by relig
ious and private academies, but these
ere in the main fee schools and did
not serve all the people. Then came
slowly but surely the free public high
school. For awhile these were mostly
located In towns and cities, but the
consolidation idea has been developing
and there are many rural high schools,
and yet with all our advances Out a
small proportion of the children of the
land especially those In the rural com
munities are adequately served: this
condition being due principally to poor
housing and equipment, untrained
teachers and lack of funds. Every child,
poor or rich, city or rural, should have
an equal chance, under equal conditions
to get an education that will rnnke him
a first claBs citizen, able to sntisfnetor
11 y perform the ordinary political dut
ies of civil life; make him economic
ally Independent self-supporting; and
so train him that he will know how
to Bpend bis leisure time profitably
without Interfering with others.
The Idea back of the new law Is to
supply these equalizing conditions and
influences, to raise the standard of rur
al education, nnd to secure efficient su
pervision of the same.
This act applied to Morrow county
would put all the schools of the county
under the jurisdiction of the county
board of five members. Since there Is
district In the county unless it
would be lleppner, that would have 500
pupils on the census. If they have
they would be a town district and
would retain their present organiza
tion. All the other sclinols would be
under the county board. The theory is
that It is far easier to secure from
the county five very able men than
150 or more as at present required
The county district board assumes con
trol of all school property and all in-
debtedness against the same, within
the district. The first county board
would be made up of five chairmen of
existing boards and at the next an
mini election a new board would be
elected. Thero would be a regular
meeting place.
The duties of the new board would
To employ a school clerk, fix his com.
schools, fix his term of olllee and com
pensatlon Including necessary thavel
ling expenses. (Present superintend
ents would serve out their terms.)
To employ a school clerk fix his com-
penBatlon, bonds, etc.
To employ all ncessary assistant su
perintendenta, supervisors, teachers,
Janitors, and assistants and tlx their
To lease and build school houses, buy
and lease lnnds for school purposes,
furnish all supplies, etc.
To prepare annual budget, levy taxes,
make annunl printed report to tax pay
ers, connolldato schools and arrange
for transportation of pupils, fix tuition,
and determine boundaries to be served
by each school house, etc.
It will be seen thnt provision Is made
for efllcient supervision of all schools
that consolidation will be encouraged;
that economy in management ana i.
the purchase and distribution of sup
plies will be secured, nnd that the
blnnket tax covering the whole county
will lessen the tax for 75 per cent of
the districts, which are now paying 10
to 20 mills or more. Umatilla county
has figured that a six mill blnnket tnx
will supply all the money now required
to run the schools. Even tho increased
supervision charge would not raise the ;
tax more than two mills. I
Other features of bill allow for the
election of a local school committee of
three the Bame as now. (Present j
boards serve until the next annunl el- j
eetlon.) This committee cares for the,
,.hool property, detonnlnes Its use for

The program to be given on the

studied under some of the best artists
of tlve west have been given prominent
places in the concert. The feature,

which aroused much favorable com

The dates for the coming Morrow

ments completed at the meeting of the
newly organised fair board recently
held. At this meeting Oscar Keithley
was chosen president, A. Henriksen.
vice-president Lena Snell Shurte, su
perintendent of children's- department
and W. W. Smead, secretary-manager.
Manager Smead will take full charge
of the arrangements for the coming
fair, and he states to this paper that
there will be some radical changes
made regarding the entertainment fea
tures. Heretofore It seemed Impossi
ble to get some of the necessary and
Innocent amusements without taking
on a lot of stuff that was not clean,
and there has always been a complaint
because of many features that were
presented. This is to be entirely elim
inated, and features of a local nature
will be added and mostly local talent
will be used. Manager Smead an
nounces that this plan Is to be tried
out, and the large amount of funds
heretofore paid tomanagers of attrac
tions coming from the outside will be
retained at home.
Mr. Smead is able to state at this
time that one day of suitable enter
tainment is already provided. The
Farm Bureau has taken it upon them
selves to furnish the attractions for
this date, and it Is expected that ar
rangements can be made with the Am
erican Legion to supply the features
for another day. In connection with
what other towns and communities of
the county can supply, and the co-operation
of the local schools. It Is fully
expected that sufficient entertainment
of a high order will be provided. The
manager Is going to give It a thorough
tryout and hopes to be able to get
the hearty support of the entire com

miles. Specifications were recently
drawn up by S. Tt. Woods, forest ranger
at Gurdane, and It Is expected that ad

be out. When completed this will make
about fifteen miles of fence on the Five
Mile Cattle nnd Horse range nnd will
fence part of the north, nit of Ihe west

'Two splendid audiences greeted the
presentation of "Love Pirates of Ha
waii," a light opera In two acta pre
sented by the pupils of the high school
at the Star theater on Tuesday after
noon and Tuesday evening.
The opera had been prepared for pre
sentation to the Heppner public after
more than three weeks of work under
the ' direction of Miss Bernice Dafoe,
and the final performance of the pupile
wan ample proof that the work had
been well done. Miss Dafoe demon
strated her ability to handle so many
young folks, and while the operetta
is not considered to be difficult, yet It
was out of line with the ordinary work
of music in tbe school and contains
a large number of special parts that
required work and ability to get It In
shape for presentation. Both pupila
and Instructor worked hard and each
participant had thoroughly memorized
every line and part
Eefore the curtain the band gave a
couple of numbers, and one number
between acts. This being followed by
a beautiful solo by Mrs. Chester Darbee
entitled "The Swallows." Mrs. Darbee
was at her best and this selection waa
rendered In a very delightful manner.
The Scotch sketch by Velma Case, Le
ola Bennett and Mary Clark was good
and brought forth rounds of applause,
while Master Kenneth Merrltt demon
strated his ability as a coming soloist
by two selections on the saxophone. Ted
Toung gave some words to the wise in
his usual entertaining fashion and Eli
nor Cohn and "Pat" Mahoney did a
beautiful song and dance. This was
a part of the program that filled In be
tween the acts and added much to the
A capacity house filled the theater
in the evening and we are sure that
none came away disappointed with the
performance of the high school boya
and girls. They could not be otherwise
than delighted, and on the other hand
the faculty and pupils are highf pleas
ed with the splendid appreciation
shown by the citizens of the commun
ity In giving them such a splendid
hearing. The financial results were
nearly 1300 and the student body treas
ury has been greatly strengthened. We
are all proud of the showing that la
being made by the pupila of the school
this season; proud of the faculty for
the good work they are doing and
glad to know that many of the pre
sent force of teachers will remain for
the coming year. Miss Dafoe, who Is
getting alone so well with the music
the school has decided to remain and
carry on the good work already under
way, and we feel assured that if she
undertakes another entertainment ot
the nature of "Love Pirates of Hawaii,"
she will receive even greater honors
than those bestowed upon this present
