The state board of education Is
composed of the governor, secretary
of state and superintendent of public
Instruction, and this body really
frames the policy of the state, ln the
matter of education, to be Indorsed

The Influence of the text-book board

have a great weight with the board

Republican Forecast.
San Francisco, Nov. 7. On the eve
of election apathy continues on the
coast While the campaign has been
generally a hard one, the spellbinders
have been unable to arouse any great
enthusiasm. Good weather Is prom
ised for tomorrow and a fairly full
vote anticipated.
The principal Interest ln California
lies in the size of Roosevelt's majori
ty, and the result of the vote for as
semblymen, on which hinges the se
lection of a U. S. senator to succeed
Bard. Republicans this morning
claim a majority of 4S.00O for Roosevelt
It Is practically conceded by the
democrats that Nevada will go for
Roosevelt but they claim they will
elect the congressmen and control the
legislature, which will select a U. S.
Idaho seems safely republican.
The forecast In Utah Is that the
state will go republican, with the pos
sible exception of congressmen. The
new American party (anti-Mormon),
claims 15,000 votes tomorrow. This
is the ' bitterest campaign ln the his
tory of the state. The theme of San
day sermons by all sects yesterday
was the Mormon Issue in all Its differ
ent phases.
Odds With lUwHeveku
New York, Nov. 7. The betting
odds on Roosevelt's election lengthen
ed slightly this morning on the curb,
the early offers being ti to $98
that he will win. Herrick remains
the favorite ln the gubernatorial race
at $1000 to ttOO.

ernor. Turner's Election Is uve,
Olympla, Wash., Nov. 7. On the
eve of election the democrats claim
Turner for governor by a plurality ex
ceeding 7000, and say they will carry
Judson for lieutenant governor by a
small majority. They concede the
three republican candidates .for con
gressmen, probably by pluralities of

ticket by a smaller vote. Republi

Oiien Town Question the Issue In a
Bluer Campaign.
Baker City, Nov. 7. Since the clos
ing of gambling In Pendleton some
weeks ago, this city has filled up
with gamblers of every class, until
the Issue In tomorrow's city election
will be on the open town question.
Two candidates for mayor are In
the field, C. A. Johns, the avowed
candidate of the open town forces.
and F. M. Saxton, an advocate of the
closed town policy.
The entire city campaign hinges
on the determination of Sheriff Har
vey K. Brown to keep the town
closed, as he has very successfully
done for the past two months. He
has Issued a letter to the public,
stating that he will enforce the law,
no matter which cnndldnte for mayor
Is elected, and that he cannot see
how the open town people have any
hopes of accomplishing their object
by the election of a mayor, when the
sheriff is empowered and author
ized to enforce the law on gnmbllng
and Sunday closing, and that he Is
determined to do so, ns long as he
occupies the office.

without leaving a cent in the way of
taxes or licenses and very little in
the way of rent, Pendleton merchants
are formulating a city ordinancu to
be presented to Ihe city council in the
near future, fixing the license of tem
porary merchants at a high rate, un
less such merchants give a sufficient
bond that they are located In the city
for at least one year.
Other cities have such ordinances
and they prove to be practical and
satisfactory to home merchants, who

The details of the ordinance are
