O. J. Blackledge desires it understood
that he was NOT interviewed in regard
to confining the city water service to
the people within the city limits. " The
writer of this admits that he did; not
talk with Mr. Blackledge. nersonallv.
but with Mr. Groves and Mr. Harris.
The latter said he was in favor of cut
ting off the water under certain condi
tions and left no doubt that "the nt.hor
I members of the cnmmissinn raih Jio
exception of A, P. . Johnson who had
not expressed himself, were, with him
in the matter, .. In discussing this mas
ter yesterday, Mr. Blackledge did not
know but that -the action would be
about right, but he didn't believe in in
timidation, and he had not understood
that anything' . was to be published.
Considering the fact that the article
referred to was published on -Wednes
day before election, thistardy statement
of his position in the matter must nec
essarily place Mr. Blackledge in a more
awkward light than, if -he had said
nothing. Mr. Blackledge says he went
to Portland Friday night or Saturdav
morning, but even this gave him .ample
time. It looks considerably like some
body has scared Mr. Blackledge a little.
Another packed house greeted the
McKenzie Merry Makers at the Palace
theater last night when they presented
the three-act drama,- "Forgiven." ,The
piece was ably handled by this company,
which has "made many friends in Cor
vallis. Especially good was the work
of Miss G wynne Sterling and - Robert
-McKenzie in the comedy parts. Richard
Lonsdale, as Jack Diamond, had the
heavy part and acquitted himself ad
mirably. During one of the tense
scenes where he is taking leave of his
wife, some persons in the audience
started a conversation audible on the
stage. Mr. Lonsdale stoDDed SDeakinir
his lines and stepping to the footlights,
called the offending, persons down in
apple-Die order. It seen this hahit nf
talking has been going on ever since
this company has been here and the
players have been putting up with it,
but last night patience ceased to be a
virtue,- hence the call-down. Mr. Lons
dale was heartily applauded at the con
clusion of his little speech, showing the
majority of those pfesent were in ac
cord with his views on the Question. It
is sincerely hoped the rebuke admin
istered last night will have the effect
of stopping talking during the ' show.
Of the moving pictures, "Through the
Breakers," a very pathetic story, and
"Un the Little Big Horn.a pictured
description of Gen. Custer's last fight,
are the leaders and are 'way above the
average. "Man With the Dolls" and
Running in Hard Luck" are two com
edy films and are good. The Drocxam
of last night will be repeated tonight.
