inere are many great needs,
but these will force themselves
upon the attention of the 'people
and the council. For a substan
tial city and a city beautiful the
provisions -named are even more
necessary than some ' of the very
apparent needs, hence the sug
gestions at this time.: The coun
cil can take action on these three
questions at any,single meeting
night. The Gazette-Times would
like to : publish before Setember

taken favorable action as hoped
But the stubborn old thing
probably wouldn't do it, just be
cause the suggestion has been
made, so there!
NO DANGER OF HASTE.
A fear that offiicials clothed
with greater power might push
too strenuously along progressive
lines, led some men to vote
against the new charter. Men
in favor of a certain amount of
improvement at such times as it
will not prove too burdensome on
taxpayers, voted against the
charter simply fpr the reason
that talk of street paving, side
walks, curbs, w ater works, etc. ,
had rasped their nerves too stren
uously. These had begun to feel
that the instant a new charter
was passed the city of Corvallis
would be turned topsy-turvy,
perhaps plunged heavily into
debt, and property owners all
1 but forced to dispose of their
holdings in order to. keep from
going to the poor-house. Imagi
nation can greatly increase "the
size of an apparent but misunder
stood danger,' and this paper feels
that an excited imagination caus-

eu more man a iew votes to go
wrong yesterday. The Gazette
Times has confidence in the pres
ent council as ;a safe and sane
combination anxious to nush im
provements, Tbut not more rapidly
than a majority of the citizens
desire. The city council is more
than likely to wait for petitions
in the matter of large improve
ments rather than attempt to
force any situation. Doubtless
it will show a progressive spirit,
and exhibit a real stiff .backbone
in matters Vhere it has been
forced to attempt bluffs tieretrt-
j fore, but beyond this the council
is more than likely to look for
inspiration from the people whose
servants it is. The city council
is composed of -fairly able and
well-intentioned men who will
hardly abuse the power entrusted
to them. The Gazette-Times
looks for a successful adminis-
; own wm met with defeat.

A TERRIBLE HAPPEN
(Continued from, page one )
the cavern Mrs. Ellis sat, fan
ning her husband with her hat,
while the blood flowed freely
from the man's face over the
grief-stricken woman's hands
Realizing that she had been
I deserted, Mrs. Ellis made cry
for help, but no answer came,
save the echo of the caves.
Thus she sat for four hours,
nursing the dying man and hop
ing for aid. In her' desperate
efforts to save his life she : tore
up her white underskirt 'and
filled theNr ound with- bits of
rags to stop the ebbing life blood,
until finally he died.
. Crawls, Saturated With Blood.
Exhausted and nearly over
come with grief. Mrs. Fllis
began to crawl on Tier hands
knees over the slinnerv
floor in an effort to. find the eiiidp
string, which fortunately had hot
been broken in the retreat. This
she secured to . a rock and laid it
on her dead husband's bodywith
the intent, if she failed to reach
the mouth of the cave, of return
Then, with her clothes saturat.
ed with blood from wounds of her
husband, Mrs. Ellis started out
and by fortunate circumstances
finally reached a line of light and
the cave entrance and thence
walked over the precipitous moun
tain to a settlement nearly four
Woman Presents Awlnl Sight "
The sight presented by the un
fortunate woman ; was awful.
Smeared 'from head to foot with
blood, her clothing torn, her hair
hanging and disheveled, the un
fortunate woman's appearance
shocked all beholders. c ;
She was brought here today, a
nervous wreck, after a strain of
30 hours, five of which she had
spent in the dark recesses of the
cave watching the life of her
husband ebb away. Her condi
tion is precarious. v;
Officers say a most . grewsome
sight was presented where the
the body was found, as theopen
ing through which he had at
tempted to enter was bespattered
with blood and his brains. In
the fall his skull had been crack
The strangest feature of the
case, which cannot be fathomed
at this, time, is the action of
Vineyard and the women in- not
returning to the cave. - After
their panic-stricken bolt f rom'the
cave, they notified Joe Fetzner
of what had occurred. He went
to the nearest telephone and
summoned aid, but Vinevard and
his party were so excited and
frightened that they hastened to
his father's ranch at the hearl nf
Williams Creek and could not be
prevailed upon to return.'
M. D. Ellis, father of the vic
tim, arrived today from Dallas
and will take charge of the body,
which is expected to arrive here
some time this evening.
