C. grounds being taken into the city limits should read Attorney Bryson's article in this issue and forever after hold their peace unless they desire to spread among their fearful breth ren the fact that their fears are groundless. Mr. Bryson gives legal opinion, and it would be a pleasure to see the color . of the hair worn by that particular doubter 'with nerve enough to question Attorney Bryson's state ments. However, even though it meant considerable expense to annex the college and grounds, we would think it mighty incon siderate, mighty small, mighty mean, for any man to hold out against ' this, the greatest factor in the city's prosperity, tM maM outside cranium. A man should be will ing to go to considerable expense to get such necessaries as these. And because the city proper can not afford to run the risk of epi demic from bad conditions in any section, the city proper should be glad to : help any sec tion, to, better, water and. sewers. College hill, the section west, and the sections both north and south of the college are in need of water and sewers. 'A part of the sections' has water, bat the Commission says this, will be cut off unless the outlying districts come in. And it is a certainty that neither water nor : sewers can be obtained until the , outly ing districts do- come into ;the city; , neither can they secure lights nor police protection until that time. With taxes leerallv limited to 7 mills, and the pros pect of getting necessaries and city ; conveniences, : the man out side of Corvallis, who may at any time be subject to a 20 mill tax for road purposes alone, surely ought to be glad to come into the city. ' Attorney Bry son's Article (Continued) from page one ) Those : living in the district Corvallis desires to bring within the' city limits should remember this fact the highest levy that utan be made for all purposes is , 17 mills. The charter of Corval Once within the '"city, , Corvallis would be obliged to give the new district mountain water, sewer age, lights and police protection. Any sane man wants the ; best water' obtainable and - proper sewer connections. If he does not there is a screw loose in his pay for the water, it uses and pave its own streets and road ways.1 ' v The greatest benefit both to the. college and the inhabitants of. the city .which will accrue from including these grounds wiillil ifee limits 'of the city will be the opportunity for police con trol on the part of the city. The state , law does not deal with ' a number of minor offences relat ing to the good order and peace of a community as it is presumed that all 'thickly settled commun ities wil resolve themselves into cities yrhiclr will ' furnish police protection' and control. A con siderable number of 'our citizens plftstffeeir oit the college grounds. Occasion ally, practically all our citizen- snip gathers there. Police' pro tection such as city laws and police alone can give is as nec essary to our citizens while on the college grounds as it is while elsewhere.

Anderson at our hands this measure of pro tection for the' students sent us while on these grounds. This does not mean that we furnish policemen to patrol the college grounds. It only means that on those" occasions when - large crowds i are gathered there and prudence demands the" presence of our police force it shall have the , right to exercise its authority to conserve the peace, within these , grounds: City police control of the nWft grounds is as necessary is like control ot our opera, house or our public school grounds or other, public gathering places in our midst. ". : . -, . - Many other reasons might : be assigned for including within the territorial limits of the city landwhich is naturally a part of it. I will just give. one that occurs tovme in this instance Supposing the collee-e. timr. by high prevailing prices, should sen to private individuals a strip of land off the east side of the' campus sufficient to fill out the blocks . . adjoining the r campus. The purchasers of. these . lots might be unwilling to come into the city and unless by a major ity vote they so willed we could not bring them in. We would accordingly have no police juris diction over two half blocks in the very center of our city. The natural result of police . jurisdic tion: would be : the growth on these two half blocks of a busi-" ness geetion of a very undesir able character, free from all reg ulation, or control on the part of the city. ,ThoB undersirable classes of business which seek to avoid or escape the intimate con trol of local municipal regulation would congregate there. - - ; To conclude I would answer the question propounded through your columns by saying that the college grounds are territorially so situated that they . naturally belong to the city and form it a territorial, unit andtfco leave them ' out would be unnatural. That the necessity of Dolice con trol, and the duty which we owe to the state to furnish 1 the pro tection and benefits of municipal control require the inclusion of these grounds within our limits. That no burden of expense f will be saddled upon the city thereby and I will conclude by asking that; some of' the twenty men represented by the v inauirv in your columns give one good rea son why we should not include' the college grounds within the city limits. - Respectfully yours, ' E.

There is a widespread reauest that Dr. Bell officiate at "these obsequies, for two reasons first, that he may be close to the two great sinners who will pummel each other, in the hope that he can-say some word that will turn them from their:sinfuls?path- to the straight . and narrow -, road that offers less money but more glory ; second, that -he will . . not permit the fight to get beyond the brutality - of- the football game. This will probably suit both contestants, as it is claimed that one is afraid and the, other glad of it - ; ' It might be mentioned here that Dr. Bell became ; a member of this company only in the hone of doing good. : If he can get 30,000 sinners here at one time,; convert all of them, and then A.
