Columbia county. Early Tuesday
morning, Chairman O. J. Evenseii
cnlleri up County Chairman S. f:
Morton nnd said that Clatakanle had
exceeded lis quota, which was $40,

had subscribed $3200, or $65,000

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

Reports received by County Chair
man Morton indicates thnt the ter

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.

Chairman A JT Tnrhell nt Wnr-
ren, with the able assistance of will-1
ing lieutenants. Is making a canvass
of the Warren neighborhood and is i
meeting with success and he does not I
anticipate any trouble in raising the!
$8000 assigned to Warren. Warren!
is a prosperous and patriotic com
munity and never falls down on pa
triotic propositions, therefore, Mr.
Tarbell and his able lieutenants,
Morris and Lindahl, are confident
that the full quota will be subscribed.
Herb Howard for Yankton.
Yankton and the Milton Creek
Logging company have alwr.ys done
their part in war activity campaigns
and H. O. (Herb) Howard Is one of
the Yankton folks that can be de
pended upon. He met with a com
mittee of business men yesterday af
ternoon nt the Chamber of Commerce
rooms and said, "well, I think I will
invest at least $2500, but after I talk
it over with my good wife, maybe K
will be $5000." Other Yankton peo
ple will fall in line nnd with Fred
Morgus and A. B. Lake out there to
day to stir up interest, there is no
doubt ns to the outcome in patriotic
Yankton.
St. Helens nnd Columbin county
have never fallen down and Chair
man Morton for the county and
Chairman Morgus for the city, are de
termined that it shall again go over!

It is ordered, adjudged and
decreed that the plaintiff and
contestant, Martin White, be
and he Is hereby decreed to be
the duly elected and qualified
County Judge for the term of
office commencing on the first
Monday in January, 1919, and
entitled to perform all of the
functions of said office and to
receive the compensation pro
vided by law, therefor.
And it is further ordered and
decreed that the defendant and
contestee, W. J. Fullerton,
forthwith surrender and deliver
to said plaintiff and cbntestant,
Martin White, the possession
and control of said office and
matters appurtenant thereto.
And it is further ordered and
decreed that the plaintiff and
contestant, Martin White, do
have judgement for and recover
- of and from the defendant and
contestee, W. J. Fullerton, his
costs and disbursements herein
and that execution issue there
for. Dated, April 22nd, 1919.
J. A. EAKIN, Judge.
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.
