Ensign and Mrs. McClelland, who have been in charge of the local Sal vation Army barracks for the past five months, left last night for their new station at Boise, Ida. Ensign McClel land's work in Walla Walla was prolific of much good. During the five months 180 street services and 171 inside ser vices were held. The total attendance at the inside meetings was 9,020. In addition to this three meetings were held at the state prison, with a total attendance of 2,220. During Christmas week 300 garments were distributed to poor people; 175 Christmas dinners were sent out and 200 toys distributed to poor children at the barrack's Christmas tree festivities. AMUSEMENTS Very Good Except the Singing. Well, if that is first-class comic opera may the good Lord deliver us. As far as the crinoline and the pante lettes and the insipid words of the alleged plot went, it was good and clean and proper, but the singing was more like that usually heard at an amateur church entertainment than what would be expected frorn a preten tious opera company widely heralded as having some of the best voices in the world. The girls were all pretty and dainty, but they could not sing half as well as many school girl s in Walla Walla. However, the entertainment probably pleased the majority of the audience. The majority were society people and if Portland or Spokane society says that a certain show is good, Walla Walla society must say amen. Man ager Catron believes in suiting all tastes in choosing attractions for the Keylor Grand, and in selecting "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" he un doubtedly pleased a large number who could see nothing good in the Roscian Opera company last week, because it charged only half tne usual price and seemed to win the hearts of the com mon herd. However, some of the best musicians in the city were heard to say last night that as a musical production there was no'hing in "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and that for real, genuine music, mirth and melody, as well as clever acting, it would not compare for a minute with the Roscian Opera company. The only good male voice in the troupe is that of Father Carleton. and the only girl that can sing a little bit is Gertrude Vaughn, whose voice is sweet, but too weak for anything but parlor entertainments. The musical repertoire of the com pany seems very limited. The only patriotic songs the chorus had in re sponse to encores were "My Maryland" and "Yankee Doodle," and the best Uncle Tom's black artists could do was to sing over and over again one stanze of "Honeysuckle Dove." But the majority seemed pleased, and if they feel that they got their money's worth, no one else need complain. VOTERS INVADE CITY HALL ALL ANXIOUS TO REGISTER FOR SPECIAL WATER ELEC TION JANUARY 30. As only two days more remain in which voters can register for the spec, ial water election to be held on Jan uary 30, citizens and tax-payers went flocking almost in droves to City Clerk Reynolds' office today to register. This was one of the busiest days for Clerk Reynolds and his assistant since | the registration books opened. Up to 10 O'clock t'lis morning 515 had registered : Cle k Reynolds estimates that there will probably be 700 voters reg istered by Friday night, when the books close. A total of 75 voters registered yes terday. Along In the afternoon the clerk's office began filling up with citi zens who wanted to register and as early as 9 o'clock this morning others who want to have a say in the forth coming election began straying in in droves of two to five. So far there has been little opposi tion to the bond issue and the city officials believe that the water proposi- THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. tion wiH carry by an overwhelming vote. INFORMATION IS QUASHED. Gambling Case at Olympics. Is Dis missed, but Defendant Rearrested. OLYMPIA, Jan. 17.—Judge O. V. Linn this morning sustained a motion to quash the information under which William McGowan was charged with conducting a gambling establishment. Mr. McGowan's case was set for trial at this term of court. The ground on which the case was brought to a sud den close was that thr information ha l not been filed withn the statutory r- tiod of 30 days aft »r the arrest. McGowan was represented by G. C. Israel. A new 7 information was promptly prepared and McGowan was again re al r-sted and as promptly furnished baii. On the opening of the court he we* arra?Kned on the new charge and given time to enter the plea. ARE GLEANING UP THE CITY OWNERS OF THE DIVES IN CHI CAGO ARE HAVING THEIR TROUBLES. CHICAGO, 111., Jan. 17 —The owners of the dives which cluster around the lower part of the down town business districts, have been notified by the chief of police that they will not be tolerated in that locality after May 1, 1906. This announcement at first was the couse of considerable consternation and surprise among the owners, who are mostly ward politicians of consid erable pull and have, heretofore en joyed immunity if not actual protec tion from the democratic administra tion. After a while they began to doubt the sincerity of the police department and came to the conclusion that the order was merely like so many other previous orders, a scheme to thrown sand into the eyes of the public, which had become thoroughly disgusted with the lawless condition of certain disrep utable streets close to the business dis trict. The mayor received information, that the dive owners did not seem to fear any serious interference and were making no preparations to move from the forbidden distrct. Thereupon he sent word to them through the police department, that the order issued was peremptory and meant exactly what it said. Since then there has been con siderable activity among the politicians of the wards in which these dives are located and several efforts have been made to induce the mayor to rescind the order or, at least, extend the time. Mayor Dunne has declined, however, to rescind or in any way change the order. DISCUSS NEW CLUB BUILDING MATTER WILL BE TAKEN UP AT MEETING OF COMMERCIAL CLUB NEXT WEEK.

"There is more interest being taken in the club building than I hist sup posed," President Catron said this morning. "I have broached the subject to several prominent business men and they are heartily in favor of the scheme and I believe that ultimately we will be able to erect a new home for the Commercial club. At a special meeting of the club to be held next week the matter will be taken up and thoroughly discussed. The details are yet to be worked out before the matter can be placed intelligently before the business and professional men of Wal'a Walla." Lars Nelson, a councilman of Day ton, and George F. Price, a well-known business man of that city, were in Walla Walla on business this morning. Demorest Contest.

The contest promises to be a close and in teresting one. Love's Dream Shattered. ST. LOUIS, Mo., Jan. 17.—Mrs. Hil ma Mcßride Shook, of Louisiana, a talented vocalist and exceptionally pretty, is the heroine of an unhappy romance which culminated in her mar riage at Christ church cathedral, St. Louis, to John Morgan Shook, former lieutenant in the United Stales regular army, followed by a separation an hour later. Mrs. Shook is with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ed I. Mcßride, of Louisi ana. When the bridegroom was unable to pay Dean Davis for performing the ceremony the bride's love dream was shattered. Accompanying her hus band to the Jefferson hotel, she told him she would not live with him and despite all persuasion left him there. Wicksrsham Summoned. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 17.—The attorney general has telegraphed Judge Wickersham to come to Washington and answer the cnarges which are holding up his nomination in the sen ate Judiciary committee. Senator Pettus, formerly opposed to Wickersham, is weakening and it is probable he will vote in favor of Wlck ersham's confirmation. This will throw the burden of opposi tion on Ankeny of Washington and Nelson of Minnesota. MODEL BAKERY LUNCH ROOM Beit place in the City to get a LIGHT LUNCH MODEL. BAKERY CHARLES RETZER.
