Over One Hundred Instructors
County

ed Free of Charge for the Occasion, Was Filled With Umatilla Coun
ty Teachers Today Good Spirit and Deep Interest Is Manifested
Ninety Per Cent of TIkx Present Are Women Free Lecture at M
E. Clmrch Tonight by Rev. J. Wliltcomb Brougher of Portland, the
Sam Jones of the Pacific Coast.
The spacious auditorium of the
M. E. church has been filled with
Umatilla county school teachers to
day, and a three days' session of the
annual Institute opened auspiciously
with over 100 teachers enrolled at
the forenoon session.
At least 90 per cent of the teach
ers present are women and it is one
of the finest bodies of Instructors
ever brought together in Umatilla
county. The Interest manifested
from the opening hour until the close
of today's session makes It evident
to any observer that the law requlr
lng 16 hours' attendance upon an In
stitute from each teacher was not
necessary In Umatilla county.
Umatilla county teachers attend
Institutes voluntarily without tine
gentle pursuaslon ot any law and
Superintendent Frank K. Welles
paid a high compliment to the In
structors In his opening remarks this
morning when he called attention to
the large percentage of the teachers
of the county present at the opening
session of the institute.
Practically every district In the
county Is represented and the attend
ance and Interest are highly satisfac
tory to Mr. Welles, who has been
arduously engaged upon the program
for the event for several weeks past
Real Work Begins.
Shortly after 9 o'clock this morn
ing the Institute was called to order
by Frank K. Welles, county superin
tendent, who called attention to the
beautiful building which had bei-n
graciously tendered them, by the
church people and spoke very opti
mistically of the prospects for a good
institute. Prof. Noorhoff of the
Pendleton academy faculty, Is serv
ing as secretary.
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. Jones, one of the pub
lishes of the Oregon Teachers
Monthly, addressed the assembly
briefly and Prof. Welles followed -him
with words of endorsement for that
publication.
Remarkable Primary Work.
After the opening exercises had
been completed the section work
was taken up and those present were
allowed to choose for themselves the
grade of work they wished to see.
Most of them showed a desire to see
the primary work demonstrated.
The primary reading class was un
der the direction of Miss Rozene Ep
ple, principal of the Field school,
and the ability shown by the little
tots was something marvelous. Like
wise It reflected much credit upon
the teacher.
In the Intermediate section the
subject of arithmetic was taken up
In the morning and It was discussed
by Prof. J. S. Landers, city superin
tendent. In the advanced section
drawing was the topic and Miss An
na E. Knox conducted the class.
Teachers Present Toduy.
While not all of the teachers In
attendance have registered with
Secretary Noordhoff of the institute,

close of the session today and many

COURT ADMITS BALLOTS

Judge Benn Instructs Jurors to Re

Votes Without Leaving Box Judge
Beau Rules llcrnilston Election Le
gal Opinion At Variance With At
torneys', Who Held That Election
Was Not IiCgally Held Resume of
the Famous Contest.
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.

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

Gardner Given a Year.
G. A. Gardner, accused of steal
ing a watch ond for whom a new

ney, R. N. Oliver, was sentenced by
Judge Bean yesterday after the mo
tion for a new trial had been denied.
Gardner was given one year In the
penitentiary.
Judge Benn Danced, '
The recent session of court was
one of the longest on record and
much heavy work was required of
the court and the district attorney.
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

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.
