the western part of Wasco county, fin
ished assessing Cascade Locks, Wyeth,
Viento and as far up as Con Repp's

was his intention to visit Mount Hood
settlement next, but the discovery made
in Multnomah county, that the new tax
law enacted by the last legislature re
pealed the $300 exemption clause of the
old law, may change his plans. Satur
day he received orders from Connty As
sessor Woodcock, ordering him not to
allow the $300 exemption in any further

emption. ' Under the law as it now
stands the poorest of ns are liable to get

Evangeline was presented in panto
mime at the Vogt Wednesday evening,
and'tho large audience certainly had no
cause for complaint. To costume and
drill 85 men, women and children in
the short space of one week certainly is
no small undertaking, but Mr. Kendall
proved equal to the work and when the
curtain rose the audience was convinced
that the minutest detail had been car
ried out,and one could easily imagine
he was looking upon an assemblage of
Acadain peasants in their daily life.
Mr. Kendall's reciting was good. He
possesses a clear, strong voice and inter
prets well the language of the author.
The performance of Evnngaline was
certainly one of the beat performances

Hood River Defeats Belmont
The ball game Sunday between the
Ho)d River and Belmont nines resulted
in a victory for the dude fans. The
game was fiercely contested from start
to finish, and considering the poor con
dition of the grounds, it waB a good ex
hibition of ball. The Hood River team
has several snappy players, but tbe
boys are still weak on team work.
Tompkins and Strong put up an excel
lent battery, Strong showing himself to
be a clever man in the box. . Blowers
held down the initial bag for the Hood
Rivers, with Dukea doing duty at
second, and Morse on guard for third.
v rohn starred for the Farmers, and did
the twirling for his team like a man
with a salary. The feature of tbe game
was dinger's catch of a line drive to
the left garden. There was a crowd of
500 in attendance. Richardson and
I sen berg were umpirea.
The Kind Wilson Makes.
Joe Wilson has rented the second
story of the old armory building, where
he has a force of 14 men, boys and girls
putting up strawberry crates, the kind
that Wilson makes. Mr. Wilson se
cures his material from Grays Harbor,
and is turning out a first-class product,
as will be readily seen by an examina
tion of the crates and nallocks. The
hallocka are known as "V-shaped,"
which when put together have the brac
ing of mitre joints. The wood is spruce
and the completed crates look very neat
and have the appearance of more than
usual stability. Mr. Wilson has also a
epecial make of hallocka for raspberries
and blackberries, some of which will be
used in shipping strawberries to Alaska.
Mr. Wilson expects to have a factory of
his own in operation next year.
