"Boost, don't knock, and let all unite In a movement for the develop ment and settlement of the entire county." This wag the slogan at the real es tate men's meeting last night and at the banquet which followed the same. It was a sentiment that was voiced by every man present and those in attendance comprised the men who are the leaders In the de velopment of the county and the rep resentative business and professional men of the city, With more enthusiasm tind interest than the most sanguine had expect ed the real estate men of the county held their meeting last night, formed an organization, told what they thought of things themselves and lis tened to what others .had to say. As .a result there it) now a better under standing and a more cordial feeling tinting between those who are devel oping the west on A and between the citizens of Pendleton. Incidentally the meeting practlcully assures the formation of a strong publicity bureau for the movement Is now under such headway that success seems certain. The Organization, About 8:30 last night practically all the realty men of the county, with the west end especially well repre- wrrted, had gathered In the rooms of the Commercial association and at th invitation of the realty men 60 or 60 prominent local business and profes slonnj men were present. D. 13. Costuma, representative of the Columbia Land company, called the mooting to order and after a lew words of explanation Introduced C. B. Adams as the temporary chairman of the meotlng. After Mr. Adams had taken the chair Mr. Costuma read a constitution -that had been drafted for the government of the associa tion. It was adopted with the agree ment that the realty men desiring to enter the association sign their names to the same. The following is the list of charter members who Joined last night and It includes all rralty men who were present: C. B. Adams, S. It. Oldaker. D. B. Costuma, Leuis Scholl, Jr., H. G. Xew fiort, E.

EVI HENCE AGAINST EDWARD MARTIN SUDDENLY VANISHES INTO THIN AIR. elTRE DESTROYS AN 0 subjects that were uppermost in their minds. Dr. H. W. Coe, of the Coe-Furnlsh project, was first called upon and he told of the good that had resulted to Portland from tho formation of an aggressive realty league In that city and predicted fine results from the meeting here. He declared, as did others, that the real opportunities of the west end were not understood by the people of the city and Joined in condemning those who through lg norance or others causes are "knockers." A 1a the Knocker. Col. J. F. McXaught, who was next called upon, verified the idea that the west end men have had a feeling that their enterprises were being talked of adversely by some people In this city. In plain words Mr. McNaught declar ed that ecver since the commencing of work in the Hermiston section ham mers had been banking In this city for some strange reason which he had been unable to fathom. However, he felt encouraged over the organization of the realty association, and the boosting spirit now, predominating THEORY THAT WOMAN STILL nere. Louis Scholl, Jr., mayor of Echo, 8, R. Oldaker. A. C. Crawford, Col. H. Q. Newport and D, 3. Costuma and Portland, Ore., May 8. Edward Hugh Martin, accused of the murder of Nathan Wolff, may be released. The tide has turned and the situation pf the drug victim appears In a more favorable light. The police today announce that they have completed their in vestigation against Martin and that the evidence will be turned over to District Attorney Manning today. The preliminary hearing will probably take place next week. Much of the evidence the police hoped to present against Martin was not found available. His wife will not testify against him. Even the finding of the bloody shirt which was heavily counted up on as direct evidence against Martin Is now discounted by the fact that the peddler who sold Martin the three shirts states that he had four In his possession, all the same and that he sold the fourth to an unknown man. The manufacturer of these shirts states that there are probably 10,000 of this same pattern In the vicinity of Portland. The revolver borrowed by Martin the day of the murder was found to bo a 38, whllo the bullet In Wolff's showcase is said by the police to be from a 32. The collar found In the store Is a No. 16, while Martin wore a 15. OHIO INFIRMARY. Marietta, O., May 8.
