Mr. Frank A. Cram,
Hood River, Ore.
Dear Sir: , -
On my return from Hood River after investigating the case against Al Foote
and Fred White for larceny in your store, I confronted them with the evidence I
had found while down there. They at first strenuously denied the whole affair
and sa id there must be some mistake about it. However, J filed an information,
and after thinking the matter over until this morning, they seem to have con
cluded we had the right ones and entered a plea of guilty before Judge Bradshaw
and were sentenced to two years in the penitentiary.
Will you kindly advise Mr. Olinger, as he was making some further inquiries
which will not now be necessary. You might also, as a matter of news, if you
desire, tell the Glacier people about it. This will save the county considerable
; expense, and we will not have to annoy any of you about appearing as wit
nesses. Yours very truly.

Mhebanouet was the outpouring of
the business men of the city in a social
gathering, with the object of bringing
together men of all shades of business
throughout the city into one harino

the upbuilding of their city; its civic

who in all probability will never visit

Hood River could not take care of all

Hood River would take care of that

lunch was served, after which a few of
the young folks had their fortunes told,
