Following Prof. Welles' talk the tachers arose and sang "America,' after which Prof. Bieakney, president of the Pendleton academy, led in a prayer. Charles H.

Judge H. J. Bean decided the Menns-Swayze election controversy n favor of B. F. Swayze yesterday afternoon and since then there has been Joy In the ranks of the New port-Skinner faction of the Hermis tonians. After two days of trial and argu ment the case was brought to an ibrupt end in the afternoon yester day when the court admitted the bal lots as evidence In the case and di rected the five Jurors to return a ver dict favorable to the Swayze side. This the Jury did without retiring from the court room and the hard fought case came to an end as fur as the circuit court is concerned. In passing upon the point at Issue yesterday Judge Bean ruled that the Hermlston election was a legal one despite the alleged defects in the ballots used. That opinion wag at arlance with the views of all the at torneys In the case, who during the arguments, held that the election It self had not been legally held. When the ballots were counted last prlng after the first municipal elec tion held in Hermlston, It was found that the race between F. B. Swayze, candidate of he Newport, or east side faction, and J. R. Means, of the Mc Naught or west side faction, was close. Of the ballots cast, Means bad 48 and Swayze 47. However the election board held one of Mean's ballots to be illegal and It was ruled out, thereby leaving the contest a tie. The next step In the case was taken when the matter was brought before the county court for decision. The court sustained the election board, and, using its prerogative, decided the tie in favor of Swayze. The case was then appealed to the circuit court. Following the decision In the case yesterday the attorneys for the plain tiff, Means, gave notice of an appeal to the supreme court. 1 Judge Bean Celebrates Close of Long Term of Listening to Tales of Iniquity, SPECLVL JURY OF SEVEN RETAINED Swayzc-McaiM Trial Ends Regular Session Circuit Court Gives .Way to Fall ScHKlon of Supreme Court in Pendleton Some Cases Go Over Judge Bean and District Attor ney Phelps Go to Morrow Gard ner Sentenced Judge Bean Cele brutes. Today a peaceful stillness has reigned within the circuit court room at the court house and it is the first day in many weeks that such a con dition has existed. With the conclusion of the Swayxe Means case yesterday afternoon the court finished Jts work for this time and the Jurors were discharged. How ever seven were still retained upon the panel so that a special Jury may be summoned before next term should such be desired. It is inti mated that this will be done the lut ter part of November or in Decem ber for the purpose of clearing up the docket. Among the cases to come up yet are those against the Walla Walla sheepmen, who are under Indictment for having driven their bands across the line Into this state without first notifying the proper authorities so that Inspections could be made. It Is probable that the facts In those cases will be stipulated. The cases against A. Perard, the sheepman, have been continued until next term and the case of Mrs. Mabel Warner has likewise been postponed. Within the past few days several new criminal cases have appeared, but these will either be settled without trials or will be held until another Jury is called. For some time during November the court room will be occupied by the supreme court, which will be here for its fall session. Circuit Judge Bean and District Attorney Phelps will be In Morrow county dur ing a portion of November for the Jury session there. Gardner Given a Year. G. A.

Gardner was given one year In the penitentiary.

The fact that the session Is over Is very satisfactory to both gentleman and Saturday evening, by which time the criminal work had been complet- ed, Judge Bean celebrated the occa sion by attending the public dance In Eagles hall. In the whirl of the two-step and waltz he evidently found a pleasant change from the tales of murder and thievery to which he bad been listening. Fortune Teller Stole S480. SaJem, Oct. 23.
