Mr. Russ Says California Exhibit Bet
ter Than Oregon Showing, Bnt Is In
Doubt Whether California's Is Bet
ter Than Canadian Exhibit
A. K. Russ. president of the
Corvallis Retail Merchants' As
sociation, whose return from Se
attle was chronicled in yester
day's daily, agrees heartily with
the editor of this paper in his es
timate of the comparative worth
of various state exhibits. In an
interview Mr. Russ said:
"I really did not see much dif
ference between the Portland and
Seattle fairs, so far as exhibits
are concerned. The Seattle fair
is a beautiful little fair and I en
joyed it very much, but the man
who saw the Lewis and Clark
fair, saw all that is worth while
at the A.-Y.-P. E. As for state
exhibits, I think California's is
best, though it's a stand-off be
tween that "state , and Canada.
The Canadians 'certainly have
made a fine showing, out Califor
nia has her exhibit put Up and

that's what counts. While the

edly interesting a great many,
the exhibit has not the dressing
and is not displayed as attracuve-
lv as the California exhibit, to
say the least. . -
Interest In Streets.
Mr. Russ was more interested
in the cities of Seattle and Tacoma

dence district, he found the paved
streets but twenty six feet wide
and some of these carrying two
tear tracks. At Tacoma he found
(that the paving in the residence
district is but 24 feet wide, this
Ibeing the rule long established.
In the Mt Tabor district, Port
land, the paved portion of the
streets is to be but 24 feet wide.
Mr. Russ is confident that the re
cent decision on the part of Cor
vallis was wise.
Saw the Ships.
While at Seattle, Mr. Russ
went out to the Bremerton navy
yard and this was the crowning
joy of his travels. . He found
there a half dozen or more fight
ing vessels Washington, Ore
gon, etc. etc., and he spent
some time on the former seeing
how they manipulated the big
guns. Having never seen one of
these floating forts, Mr. Russ
was charmed.
With the rest of 'em, the Cor
vallis merchant left some money
on the Pay Streak. His tendency
was in the line of aerial naviga
tion as represented by the scenic
railway. He rode on this until
he got ashamed and then decided
to come home. He was afraid
that if he got used to going fast
he wouldn't feel at home when
he got back to Corvallis. ;
While in Seattle, the Russ fam
ily roomed with the McCauslands,
who formerly lived here.

With summer at its high noon,
a" spIendioThaf vest" may safely oe
predicted. The buzz of the
threshing machine is heard
throughout the land, and when
the grain sown last fall is finish
ed, there are hundreds of acres
of spring sown grain ready for
the machine, while the hay balers,
although busy: for many, weeks,
are still compressing clover, vetch
and cheat into condensed forms
for shipping.
From all the countryside has
come an urgent demand for labor
ers, and at the farms it is no un
common sight to see women or
children of ten . years following
plows and using other farm ma
chmery necessary to keep the
home place going, while the man
of the family goes to the assist
ance of his neighbor in the midst
of harvesting.
Every year has seen some new
crop introduced successfully in
Oregon. The present one ranks
high because of the unparalleled
success in growing kale, the great;
cow feed that resembles cabbage,
but produces heads weighing up
wards of a hundred pounds on a
single stalk.. Alfalfa is a recent
introduction that bids fair to re
main, while ' the old standard
grains of wheat and oats look
well despite the adverse weather
that prevailed early in the sea
son. Potatoes will break all
records in the matter of quantity
and size, the July rains having
given them an impetus to growth
that makes a phenomenal yield
assured. ; The -season of small
fruits is not yet at an end, and
the prolonged season bids fair to
make the berry crop average up
well with that of former years.
Turnips are being resown, the
first crop having matured suffi
ciently ; early to make a second
crop possible. Onions for which

In an opinion handed down by
the supreme court yesterday,
written by Justice McBride. Jas.
A. Finch, who appealed from the
circuit court of Multnomah coun
ty, where he was convicted of
murder in the first degree and
sentenced to hang for the killing
of Ralph Fisher in Portland, the
last thread of hope was severed,
the supreme court affirming the
judgment of the lower court, and
Finch will now be compelled to
pay the penalty for the crime.
Justice McBride, in writing the
opinion, covered every exception
taken by Finch's counsel during
: the trial and the 14-page article
is considered one of the most able

taken to any ruling of the court
upon acceptance or rejection of
any juror, indicates that a jury
believed by both parties to have -been
fair and impartial was se

The opinion in conclusion saysj
"We have thus examined every
contention of counsel, and we
I find no reason why a new trial
should be granted in this case.
We are not' unmindful of the
terrible consequences of this de
cision to the defendant, but they
are only such as the application
of the law to his own conduct
has produced." -
Several pages of the opinion
are devoted to the contention
that the infliction of the death
penalty is contrary to the con
stitution. The section of - the
constitution is copied from the
Indiana constitution, where
opinions have held it to be not
inconsistent with the theory of
punishment for reformation.

Chief Wells doesn't believe "the

appears that this firm has been
getting generous quantities of
beer heretofore, but to Chief
Wells they say they . propose to
