Within a Mile and a Half of Corvallis
James Hays the Man.
James Hashes killed a bear the
other day. The remarkable part of
the incident is the animal was shot
within a mile and a half of Corval

bears ventured so near the steeples,

story, it was a pet bear that Mr
Hayes slew. It belonged to Sam

and voracious that it became a nui

A big chain around his neck held
Bruin safely to an oak tree while

honor, but there is a suspicion tnat
he lacked nerve and that his better

Destroyed Logs Cut for the Carriage
Factory A Man and His
Word was received by phone at j
the Carriage Factory Thursday, of i
the destruction of a large amount :
of timber contracted for by the 1
company in the Cascades. The
spot is four miles this side of Mills
City. The factory had purchased!
there a large amount of hemlock
logs. The latter had been cut and ;
peeled by contractors for the H H
Haines tannery at Eugene. The
logs were to have been shipped to
Corvallis for use in the factory.
Much of the tan bark had been
ricked up in fhe woods near, and
was to have .been shipped to the
. Fire broke out through the act of
a man who fired a slashing, and it
spread until the hemlock woods be
came involved. The word to Mr
Cramer was to the effect that the
fire might possibly destroy all of
the million feet of logs together
with the tan bark. x
The Cramers had been operating
in the woods about, a week, and
had moved about 15,000 feet of logs
to the railroad, where they are safe.
The six teams occupied in the work
have been ordered back to Corvallis.-
, :The factory now expects to
get logs at Summit, Benton county,
if the timber there : does not get

"The King of the Opium Ring,',
that comes to us for one night,
Saturday, September 13th, is said
to be Blayney' s best spectacular
melodrama.. It is full of startling
climaxes, romantic adventures and
thrilling situations and shows the
operations of a great band of opium
smugglers who at the time of the
play, hold full sway in San Fran
cisco. To give the play the pro-
oer setting, Manager Haswell has
had numerous special scenes paint
ed, mechanical, effects constructed
and costumes pucrhased so that
the whole production is finished
throughout from first to last aet.
Despite the fact that the manage
ment is under considerable expense
for a produ"tion of this kind there
will be no advance in prices. Seats
are now on sale at the usual place.

FOUR NEW LATERALS
Two Ordered and Two Pending in the
Corvallis City Council. ; '
A sewer is to be constructed
through Hotel Corvallis block. The
only petitioner wasF PSheasgreen.
The petition was presented a month
a.go, and was referred to the sewer
committee. Last Monday . night
the committee returned the report
without recommendation, and re
ferred the council to - an ordinance
which says that "when a ' property
owner resides within 1 60 feet of a
sewer main he shall, when requir
ed, build .laterals at his own ex
pense. After hearing both sides of
the case, the council voted unan
imously in ordering the sewer con
structed. Petitions for two sewer laterals are
pending in the council. One is
for a two block sewer through the
Dr Rowley block and is signed by
Dr Rowley, Mrs Sarah Moore and
J W Ingle, representing six out of
the 24 lots involved. The other is
for a one block i extension to the
George Iyilly lateral, and is signed
by James Hays, representing three
lots. Both petitions were referred
to the sewer committee for exam
ination and report. ,
On a petition representing all the
property, a lateral was authorized
