At the Biime time, St. Helens had subscribed $3200, or $65,000 li'ss t linn tho quota assigned. Rain ier, with a quota of $17,000 is re ported as having moro than filled the quota. Scappoose, according to Mrs. C.rant Watts, the faithful chair mnn in Hint town, 'has subscribed Its quota of $15,000, end It appears that St. Helens alone is the laggard. Heretofore, St. Helens hns been ovei tho top first of all and it is a keen disappointment to the city clialrnmn that the people have not responded more promptly. He hopes that all will turn out Saturday night and take part in the big celebration. People from Warren, Yankton, Columbia City, Deer Island nnd surrounding country aro especially Invited. County tioiiiK (food. Reports received by County Chair man Morton indicates thnt the ter ritory outside of St. Helens will make a good showing. Mrs. Jack Appleton at Deer Island !s sure that the $10,000 quota will be reached. Deer Island has never failed and Mrs. Appleton does not ex pect It to go back on its good record. In Gohle, the old reliable warhorses, Hog Kenny nnd P. B. Holbrook can be relied upon to make up the quota In tho Third lonn Coble had 1000 per cent nnd i:i the Fourth loan they 'ncreased the amount by 400 per cent so naturally, that patriotic commun ity would not full down ut this time. No reports hnve been received froi Kenny and Holbrook except to say they "were attending to business" and this means that Goblo will be, or Tomorrow will mark the opening of the baseball season In St. Helens. The St. Helens high school team will meet the fast James John high school team of Portland and a gooo game Is assured. It will be called promptly at 2:30 o'clock on the high school play grounds In the fiat. Kit Conyers, an Oregon Agricul tural college athlete and a member of the McCormick team In the Ship builder's league last seuson, has been coaching the high school boys and he feels confident thut lie has a classy aggregation of ball Dlayers ond is confident of winning the ini tial contest. While the rainy weath. cr has interferred, to some extent with the dally practices, Conyers has whipped the team into shape and they are a scrappy nnd heady b:inch of ball tossers and each one of them be lieve that St. Helens' High will an nex the lnterscholastic title for the lower Columbia. May and Merril are holding down the first and second stations, re spectively, nnd are doing the job up in fine style. Welllnder. who is the short patch artist, grabs everything that comes his way and Is not afraid to take a long chance and Dlyon at third, is holding down that statlou in almost f iultiess manner. Con yers is well satisfied with his infield and claims they will be the sensation of the season. Hill, Corslglia ana Kiblan have the positions in the out er grounds. They are fielding well and hitting the ball hard, and Stan wood, who v.'lll do the receiving, is getting along nicely. Zeigler ana Decker will do the twirling. Botft of the boys have been practicing hard. Decker, who recently return ed from France, is in fine form. He will be depended upon to do the bulk of the twirling. He has a fast breaking curve and good control, ano he will make some of the opposing batsmen do the one, two, three act. Wilson and Isblster, who have rt ported for practice, have been work 'ng hard and show up well and they will make some of the regulars travel at a fast gait In order to hold their positions. The team Is the best one which has represented the school for man) years, and the baseball loving fans should turn out and encourage the I oys. Remember the game will be called at 2:30 o'clock. The admis sion is only 25 cents. Come out and help the boys along and root for them to win.

Ordinarily there la no appeal from the decision of the circuit court in cases of this kind, but Judge Eakin has allowed a stay of execution for 15 days in which attorneys for Ful lerton may prepare a bill of ex ceptions. The attorneys have not yet made known what course they will pursue, but It is probable that exceptions will be taken to Judge Eakiu's ruling. White Wins by Six Votes According to figures of Judge Er.kin, White received a majority of six votes over Fullerton. The re count gave White 766 and Fullerton 772, a majority of six for Fullerton. Forty votes were laid aside for further consideration. The Jud;b rules that 24 of these were for Whito and 14 for Fullerton, making the count: White, 790; Fullerton. 786. The judges of the election had thrown out six votes as illegal. Tht judge counted these and gave four to White and two to Fullerton, mak ing the total: White, 794; Fuller ton, 788, or a majority of six for White. This makes a difference nf 12 as to tho recount result, for, as stated, Fullerton came out of that tangle with six votes to the good. (Continued on last page) j V. S.
