Sot 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. FRANK MENEFEE. O. R. & N. TIME TABLE.

Speaking of the banquet at uregon v,ny, -pmiu Shaw said: 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 nioua gathering to talk over methods of the upbuilding of their city; its civic and sanitary needs, as well as it ethical standing. The meeting was largely at tended and was harmonious through out, lasting until long after the mid night hour.

There seems to be a fear among some of those I met that Hood River could not take care of all who will come. I assured them that Hood River would take care of that part of the programme, and for them to come and bring all of their friends and relations.

All who started with the ex ception ot four, went through to the Cascades the first day without accident, except a few frot4 ears and fingers, four only failed by the way from rheu matism or exhaustion, and were left at farm houses to rest up, and finally came in the next dav. At Cascade Locks all were kindly re ceived and furnished with comfortable lodgings in hotels and at the govern ment quarters. Here we spent a pleas ant Christmas and were invited to tur key dinner at our kind host's, George Gardner's, and the younger portion of the party joined in a dance Christmas night" Another account says: "For the first four days there wasa fair supply of cigars and tobacco, those accustomed to the use of the weed hav ing bought some at The Dalles. Then the stock of the newsboy was drawn on, and the samples of three drummers. On Tuesday there was nothing left to smoke or chew,' and no tobacco wri packed in. It is needless to remark that it was a total abstinence crowd Irom necessity."
