Mrs. Howe, district president, who in Holt county's orphaned condi tion (this county having teen without a president for some time) was moderator, proceeded to appoint committees as fol lows : Credentials Mrs. Huntor, of Craig, llesolutions Mrs. Cochran, of Oregon; Mrs. B. O. Cowan, of New Point; Mrs. Kellogg, of Craig. Mrs. Kellogg read the treasurer's ro- port for Holt county, and, on motion, it was received and adopted. Mrs. Goodpasture, Ceuuty Superinten dent of Fair Work, and Mrs. Bloomer, County Superintendent of Evangelistic Work, each reported and their reports were received and adopted. When Mrs. Howo called for report of Press Work courtesies were acknowl edged from each paper in tho county, The Sentinel, Leader and Times were .especially mentioned as baring been very obliging. Mrs. McKnight, of Oregon, assisted by Mrs. Castle, of same place, gavo a very interesting account of Jail and Alms house Work. Mrs. Bloomer, Superin tendent of Evangelistic Work, thought the jail and almshouse a good place to hold gospel texperance meetings; she thought the inmates of each place would certainly look forward with, pleas. ;'jro to the time. The report of Mrs. Hovey, County Su perintendent of of Literature, was read by Mrs. Martin. The report was receiv- ,od and adopted. Mrs. Cochran presented the claims of The Missoun Home Guard, state organ fit the W. C. T. U. Mrs. Kellogg, County Superintendent of Scientific Temperance Instruction, gave a very interesting account of how the work whs dyne in Graig, nnd Craig is surely ahead of every other school in the county in the attention given this very important 6tudy. Her report was adopted. When Mrs. Cochran was called upon lor her report of the Department of Franchise 6he was obliged to confess nothing done. After -an earnest discussion on the best way to distribute literature the .convention adjourned, and by invitation marched to the elegant residence of Mrs. Rufus Guiliiams,'where an elegant lun ,cheon was served to .delegates, visitors and local union. The verdict of all was that tho ladies of Craig as entertainers are unrivalled, and the word was passed around among voting delegates that we must have a Craig woman for county president, but which one, whore. til are so competent, ,vas difficult to decide. At the evening session the Presby terian church was well filled, notwith standing a May dance was in progress at the same hour. Mr. Harry Reod, son of the Presbyterian minister, presided at the organ and the choir rendered bright .cheerful music n a manner that would have been applauded in Oregon, but was only received by that Craig audi ence in silence. Your reporter intended to inquire if applause was out of order ih that church, as all through the session none was heard, when many good things surely deserved a warm appreciation, lint work rushed so fast there was Iutle tinio to ask questions. The floral deco rations were tasteful; nothing was omitted from the usual decorations found when the work is done by women. Mrs. Hunter, ex-president of .Craig Union and president-elect of the county, gave the address of welcome, which was responded to by Mrs. Cochran, of Ore gon. After which a powerful arraign ment of the licensed traffic in liquor was listened to, given by Rev. T. D. Roberts, of Oregon. He said it might be called a lecture, address or whatever we liked, but he would found his remarks on the Word of Qod, which tho reverend gen tleman held in his hand. The denunci ation was unrestricted and clear-cut enough to please the tiwst radical, and it undoubtedly loft a lasting impression upon ull who hoard it, and rejoiced the hearts of "those women" that the clergy of our day are certiinly giving heed to the apostolic injunction. The collection, more singing and the benediction by Rev. Nelsou, who hadi conducted the dovotions at the opening of service, vaa given and the first day of the county convention was closed.
