St. Louis Globe 'Democrat:
They are unfair who have charged
Dr. Cook with deliberate, pre
meditated imposture. The Scotch
verdict "not proven" is ong
which we' will have to rest upon
for some time, to come, unless
the records and data the doctor
has brought back with him are

new address. I At CoDenhaeren he has told the
press that one of his thoughts at
the pole was that it might easily
be said that he never made the
journey, and that he would have
but scant evidence to offer
against such a charge.. Since
the doctor has himself thought
of this, , the thought is
permissible in others, but he is
more at liberty to speak
it unreservedly than any other
man in the world. The degree
of respect due from every man
to any one man who will make
such a perilous adventure will
be freely paid up to the point
where he is clearly convicted of
being a blowhard and a faker,
whether or not he has actually
discovered the North Pole.
Nothing but proved f akery will
ever condemn him in any manly

CHANCE TO GET BUSY.
- Instead of losing to - Albany
and Portland a third of the busi
ness that rightly , belongs here,
Corvailis should1 hold her own
and get some of the other- fel
low's business. Corvallis mer
chants should force that Willam
ette bridge through, insist that
the county court build a first
class road to connect with the
fine one being built by the Al
seans, make a stronger bid for
the west and south Benton trade,
study prices at Albany and meet
that' strenous competition in a
convincing way and then ; strive
hard to getat least a few of the.
Portland touches to their stocks.
There should be unity in all this,
ach merchant doing his ' full
share. 'As it stands ' today but
three or four stores are making
any strong bid forcounty trade-.
the others seem content to pick
up the oversow business, and
that of the people who casually
drift in. This is hardly a square i
deal ' for themselves or the city.
Members of the local merchants'
association say that it is but a
makeshift' without definite ' pur
pose, seldom attended,' and of no
feal -consequence. J Here's ' a
chance for some "Seattle spirit"
to make itself felt. ! Corvallis . is
rightly entitled to the most of
the Benton county trade, half of
Lincoln county's and the Linn
county trade as far out as Leb
anon, and it can get it if the
merchants will but make their
association the working force it
should be. They should not be
content to make their profits off
the few rather than the many.

AMERICA LEADS THE WORLD
It has been proven that a man
in the United States has a work

of her three greatest competitors!
A few years ' ago this country
ranked fourth in the list but to-1

TEXAN'S RIDE TO WASHINGTON
THE PACIFIC MONTHLY
With Message For the President Hopes
. to Make New Saddle Record.
With the greeting and Invitation.
from thousands of Texans to Presi
dent Taft safely tucked away and In
full cowboy regalia,' Ed S. O'Reilly, ed
itor of the San Antonio Light and Ga
zette, 'bade adieu to more than 5,000
enthusiastic san Antonians the other
afternoon en route to Washington. The
start was made from in front of the
historic Alamo in San Antonio.
To ride to -Washington with an In
vitation for President Taft was an
Idea that Impressed Mr. O'Reilly fa
vorably -as soon 'as it had been con
ceived. That the task might prove too
much for him or his steed troubled
him little. If Mr. O'Reilly has to make
forty miles a day for the entire trip'
he will make them.
There Is one factor in the undertak
ing that would discourage the average
man. but which to Mr. O'Reilly will
only mean employing a little more grit.
He has to reach Washington not later
than the middle of September. Were
It- not that he is riding a cow pony of
the best . Texas stock. . an animal of
great stamina, endurance and tenacity.
bis chiin-es of repching Washington
would be slim indeed. But Aransas.'a
mare bred uu Mr.' Taft's brother's
ranch on the gulf, will prove more
than equal to the oooasiou. Hers is
that ' steady, swinging stride which
only generations of hard work in the
chaparral rounding up cattle could
have given her and her ancestors.
Change of feed and water means little
to the Texas pony, because selection
and elimination on the home plains are
strong factors and have weeded out all
that is unfit. - . ' .
The successful completion' of the trip
.would , put all previous long distance
rides in the shade. Since the days of
the pony express nothing like it has
been attempted. Even the, ride be
tween Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and
Santa Fe, N. Mless than one-half the
distance Mr. O'Reilly purposes to cov
er, was considered a remarkable performance.

TO RAISE $200,000 IN CENTS
Farmer's Suggestion to Celebrate the
Anniversary of Rural Free Delivery.
A novel suggestion was made to
Postmaster General Hitchcock at
Washington the other day for a way
In which properly to celebrate the thir
teenth anniversary of the establish
ment of the rural free delivery. A Mis
souri farmer wrote Mr. Hitchcock that
he had seen in the newspapers that the
department was at a loss to .know
what would be a fitting, way to observe
the establishment of the rural service;
His plan would be to have every pa
tron of the. service give a cent to the
rural carriers, the money so collected
to constitute a fund for some worthy
charity like Athe establishment. , of a
home for children. As there are 20,-
000,000 rural free delivery patrons, the
adoption ' of ' the - Missourian's plan
would yield a fund of $200,000.
SERMONS' ON BALL FIELDS.
Chicago Minister Advocates : Opening
Sunday Games With Prayer.
A sermon would be a fitting opening
to each major league baseball game
played on Sunday, according to Bruce
Barton, son of the Rev. W.- E. Barton,
pastor . of the First Congregational
church. Oak Park. Chicago. . He de
clared the other night that,' although
lie did not favor Sunday baseball, he
thought the plan feasible.
Barton said he had mentioned the
matter to some of the prominent min
isters of Chicago and also has set the
facts before persons connected, with
the management of major league teams
and that in all instances his suggestion
had been approved. . Barton says that
the matter has been approved by both

degree of peace. That is why I do
not go to the theater."
