Mr Woodcock's Gazette raises
the question that because Mr Wat-
ters has had office he ought not to be
elected again. It a farmer has a first
class farm hand, does he turn him off
and hire a green band? Did -anybody
ever hear of a business man who dis
charged a good clerk to hire one. that
bad everything to learn? In what
respect does county business differ
from private business? Is not special
training as desirable for county busi
ness as private business or farm busi
ness? Is It likely that the manage
ment of the county business could be
better done by a raw hahd than by a
trained one? Is not the very argu
ment that Mr Woodcock s paper uses
against him the very reason why Mr
Watters should be elected.
A republican drummer . was in
town yesterday. Like most all drum
mers, he is an ardent Chamberlain
man; "They cannot beat George
Chambeilain." hesaid,'In every office
he has ever filled he has performed
his duties so faithfully and so wholly
in the interest of the people that bis
public record cannot be attacked.
Everybody Knows this. Besides, all
men who , ever knew him are Mr
Chamberlain's friends, and all of them
are worning - witn tremendous energy
ror nis election. It Is probable that
If Mr Furnish had not gone on the
campaign that he would have been gov
ernor. But bis campaign la fatal to
his chances. Every man who meets
him is dissapointed. They see that
he is a very ordinary man, His cold
ness repels them. His attempts' at
epeechmaking lose him many a vote,
for men reason that, it he has Ideas
to fit him for governor, he could at
least say something. It Is true that
Mr Furnish has a Bar'l, but it is the
history of Oregon that men who run
for governor- with a Bar'l as their
only assets, do not get elected." This
drummer has just returned from
Wasco county and he said that re
publicans admitted up there that

What it Shows About the Students at
OAC Where They are From. -
. The aunual catalogue at OAC
is about completed. The publica
tion brings out several interesting
The total enrollment for the cur
rent year is 488, showing a health
ful growth of fifty-two ' students
since last June. Of " this number
321 are males, indicating a propor
tion of nearly two to one on the
basis of sex. The department, of
music : including voice .. culture,
piano-forte, and harmony has an
enrollment of 94 for the first year,
however all but 14 of this number
are pursuing studies in other de
partments. The miniug - depart
ment instituted last year is steadily
growing, and the . bookkeeping de
partment has for the first year an
enrollment of 58. . This course has
met with such favor that it has
been extended to four years, in
coporating more . English,: indus
trials, and other studies given by
various agricultural colleges that
have studied the needs of practical
men and women, and the name of
the course . has . been " changed to
Literary Commerce. The courses
of study, which .practically remain
ed unchanged, have been well pa
tronized throughout the year.

THE STUDENTS -"
Whence come the students, and
whither will they go after leaving
college are questions very fre
quently asked by friends ' of the in
stitution. - Do they return to the
farm or to the city? Does this
training unfit & farmer's boy or a
mechanic's boy for the farm or the
workshop. A careful examination
of the records has - resulted in these
; Students irom the iarm, 71 per
cent; from the homes of mechanics
and day laborers 10 per cent; from
homes of merchants and capitalists
8 per cent; from homes reoresent
ing professions and other pursuits,
1 1 per cent. - Exclusive of the
graduates, who form but small per
centage of ; ; the college family,
about 80 per cent of the , students

. teacher's certifcates .
The committee on matriculation
of students has found that a large
percentage of candidates for ad
mission holding teachers' certifica
tes have stood well in their classes.
Upon the whole the teacher's cer
tificates has proved one of the safest
tests of a candidate's 7 attainments
hence in recognitinn' of the, thor?
oughness required at the regular
county teachers' examination, the
.following regulation - has been
adopted to accommodate students
living at a distance:
"The holder of .a certificate or
statement signed by the county
school board of examiners certify-
ing that at the regular- teachers'
examination be received a satis
factory grade to entitle him ' to a
teacher's certificate, may be ad-mitted-to
all freshman classes " ex
cept algebra. He may , remove
such deficiency in algebra upon
furnishing the president with a sat
isfactory statement from a teacher
or school superintendent that the
applicant is familar with the subject
of algebra to quadratics, or upon
the arrival at the college he make
good such deficiency by examina
tion or class recitation."
WITH A DONKEY ENGINE
Big Logs Yanked From the Shore Into
the Willamette at Corvallis.
Corvallisites have been interested
the past few days in .watching log
ging operations , across the river
at Corvallis. The thing that most
ly attracted attention was a big
donkey engine that with .tremend
uous power wrested great logs from
their resting place several hundred
yards from shore and drew - them
swiftly along . and finally left them
on the river bank" ready to be
rolled into the river. - - - '
The operations are by the Ore
gon Logging Company. The logs
are out of big balm trees ; that
were cut along the bank of the
Willamette opposite Corvallis, three
or four weeks ago. They are for
a basket manufacturing establish
ment located at Fort Johnson, a
town several miles below Portland.
The donkey engine, which is the
business end of the operations is on
the east bank of the river. Under
and belted to it are two huge skids,
many feet long and two feet in
diameter. . Sometimes it is .neces
sary to move the engine, and it is
then that the skids perform an im
portant function. For this moving
purpose, a big cable is fastened to
a neighboring tree. . The other end
works over a huge pulley on the
engine. Steam is then turned on
and the big engine pulls itself to
the spot where the men who are
conducting the operations want it,
But the interesting sight in' the
operations is when this powerful
machine handles the big logs. The
latter ranee from 16 to 24 feet in
length and run as high as four feet
in diameter. Some of them have a
lumber content of 3,000 feet Some
are 400 to 500 yards distant from
the river bank.' They are drawn to
the river by a seven-eights wire
cable 1,800 feet long. When the
cable is attached, the engine is put
in motions and - the great log - at
once begins to move. Its progress
is about as fast as an ordinary
team walks. No matter what ob
stacle is in the way, the journey to
the water s edge continues. Some
times a furrow is digged m the
surface of the ground deep enough
and big enough : to comfortably
bury a dozen men. " If a tree top
or Hi stump is m the way it is brush
ed aside. Nothing delays, nothing
impedes. The log is finally de
posited on the river bank. There
iron dogs are put in it, and again
the iorce or the engine is applied,
and it rolls into the river, where in
due time all will be snugly formed
into a . raft to be taken down the
river. - - ' '
The engine is a sixty horse with
double cylinder. Of the logs.
125,000 feet "were cut . and are to
be rafted at Corvallis.
When not in use the donkey en
gine occupies a biar barge, sixty
feet long, on which there is a house
with quarters for the logging crew
