The Grand Victory to lie Celebrated
A (J rand Treat.
Last night the two literary socie
ties of tho Willamette university
met nt their hulls in Joint session,
and rendered uu entertaining pro
gram which had been previously
prepnred. The Indies and gentle
men of tho university conduct sepa
rate societies for the development of
the literary faculties and at tho close
of a school term tiro wont to have
a co-operutlvo meeting. Such being
the case, it Is our regret that the
regular school terms do not come to
a close more frequently any every
few weeks. The evening was en
Joyubly spent, and tho attendance
was fur beyond the capacity of the
iiii-uiy appointed nans ot tlio socie
ties. It might not be Impcrtine.it
to remark that in the Sliiikesncarp

son took the side of Uacon.

attention from tho farmers and
merchants of Polk, Yamhill and

would be a great bonellt to tho
runners of tho Willamette valley.
To-night the goddess !t victory
will reign supreme and assist in the
celebration of the result of the
glorious national contest. Harrison
and Morton have won by a good
majority, having but one less elec
toral votes than did Cleveland In
1834, and tho observance will be
unanimous. Musi 7, cannon, fire
crackers, horns, sboutsund laughter
will fill the air and all will go as
merry as the marriage bell. This is
the close of one of thegreatcst strug
