Awakening; to the need of knowl edge concerning Oregon, among Ore gon pupils, the tate board of educa tion wiU perhajm introduce a course of faMijrrersron hlstorj' In the pub lic school curriculum, at the coming session of the JegisLuture. The Oregon Teachers' Association hus repeatedly recommended this move, and realizing the dense ignor ance of Oregon among all classes of Oregon people., .especially --concerning the early history of the state, and the expedition of Liewls and Clark, the board of ediuiai!on has seen fit to formuUite a coura of Oregon history study, to be Introduced In the public schools from the sixth to the eighth grades. In place of some of the super fluous eoudles mow on the course. Thei-e are two .late histories of the stute extuiit, one by Mrs. Eva Emery Dye of OneRX-m -City, a volume of whose Oregon vturlcs are now Includ ed In the list of supplementary reud Ings for the puhllc schook--, and a smalj volume compiled by Kldunia V. Johnson of Portland. Mrs. Dye's xnks are all intensely interesting, and have a strain of ro mance running through them, which makes then especially fitted for school work, because they do not be come tedious, amt ripple freshly and entertainingly through all the vari ous Interesting subjects of .early his tory and settlement. The attention l the board of edu cation has been called to the wide spread Ignorance concerning Oregon history, through the questions asked the press by prominent jnan and women In the East, Inquiring about the Ltewts and Cfcark fair. A concise, detailed hlstary begin ning with the earliest Usocveries, and running up to date will be .adopt ed, and It Is thought a three .years' course will probably be Instituted. - AnnleMS BllluutUat Is lieoiira.

The outcome Is problematical. Conservative poli ticians concede that the republican electors will carry the town of Pen dleton and Umatilla county. The ma jority for the Roosevelt and Fair banks men is placed at about 400. The outcome on the question of pro hibition Is very doubtful. The pro hibitionists are confident of carrying Freewater. Milton and perhaps sev eral other outside precincts. The vote on the county as a whole will perhaps be slightly In the favor of the untl-prohibltlonlsts. The total vote In each of the four Pendleton precincts at 3 o'clock this afternoon was as follows: South Pendleton, 270 registered. 131. Pendleton, 250 registered, 135. North Pendleton, 376 registered, 226. East Pendleton, 446 registered, 150. liiHdenU of tlie Kay. There was a fight at the North Pendleton voting place this morning, but the principals were two canines that had followed their masters into the booths. However, the owners of the animals both wore Parker but tons, and no serious trouble followed the affray. A man was offering to place 1100 against $90 this morning that Judge Turner would be elected governor of Washington, but there were no tak ers. An antl-prohlbitioniat offered to bet 1100 that the prohibitionists would not secure 1800 votes In Umatilla county. No one took the offer. 44X1 Outside Votes. The town Is peculiarly free of rowdyism and drunkenness today. Two arrests were made this morning by the police, sue for drunkenness and the other for peddling without a license. Both men are strangers In town. It Is estimated thai fully 400 bal lots will be cast In Pendleton today by persons whose residences are else where In the state. These voters are obliged to swear to certificates of their legal residence, and are allow ed to vote only for presidential elec tors. Charge Colonizing. Prohibitionists charge that in the precincts of East Pendleton and Pen dleton that the antls have colonized voters and that a number of votes cast are Illegal. If prohibition car-j rles In the city the anti-saloon men are looking for their largest majori ties In North and East Pendleton pre cincts. 1 Took Tug t Jersey lily. New York, Nov. 8.
