Petition Will Not be Filed Because the People of Oregon Have Shown Them
selves Unalterably Opposed to any Project That Would Interfere
With the Great 'Institution That is Doing so Much
to Advance Practical Education.
The best news that has come to Corvallis in a long
time is that from Ashland today, which authoritatively
states that the petitions asking for a referendum vote on
the special appropriation bill of the recent Legislature
granting the Oregon Agricultural College $210,000 for the
construction of new buildings, equipment and purchase of
lands will not be filed.
E. J. Kaiser, editor of the Valley Record, placed the
petitions in circulation throughout the state immediately
3rd of June and hardly a spare room in
town. Our hotels are so crowded that
they can help but little.
"What are we to do? We must take i
care of the old veterans.
"It would be a burning disgrace after
inviting them here not to make all pos
sible exertion to lodge them comfort
ably. "They will not be exacting, these old
heroes of ours. They did not complain
in youth when our. country called for
the sacrifice of the best part of their
lives and for years of toil, privation and
danger. ' , ' "
1 "These few aged survivors of a mil
lion sturdy youth have not been used to
the luxuries of life; they will be content
with what we can give. But for the
honor of manhood and of our country
let us give the best we have."

The one important duty ot every
qualified voter in Corvallis tomorrow
afternoon should be to go to the court
house and deposit a ballot in favor of
the bond issue for the new High School
This special election is for all the
voters in School District No. 9 and the
result should show the sentiment to be
unanimous for the proposed improve
ment. -
There is a necessity for construct
ing such a building and of having it
completed and equipped before the
opening of the fall term of school.
Every room in the present buildings is
so overcrowded that the scholars are
not receiving the attention that the
teachers are all anxious to give them
and this state of affairs should not be
permitted to continue any longer.
, The additional High School building
to build it should be voted for without
any opposition.
But for technical error the last elec
tion for this purpose which met with such
DODular favor, would have been suffici
ent. This error will be done away
with in the election tomorrow and
work can then be commenced.
Corvallis is going to have one of the
largest industrial enterprises of its kind
in all this section of Oregon, the Occi
dental Mill Company which has already
been a great factor in the progress of
the city, having just been reorganized
on a firm business basis and increased
its capital to half a million dollars to
provide for enlarged equipment of the
tree plants and the purchase of immense
bodies of standing timber.
Dr. T. W. Harris has been elected
president 01 the reorganized corporation;
G. O. Bassett, vice president and gen
eral manager and C. A. Dobell, secre-
Johnson, John F. Allen and dther prom

the organization.
The company is now making exten
sive improvements in the three mills at
Corvallis, Beaver Creek and Oak Creek
and with the new and modern machinery

and options are held on 90 to 100 million
