' SELLING LIQUOR TO MINORS
A decision by the supreme court
Monday, vastly strengthens the
law orohibitinsr sale of liquor to
minors. It holds that even though
the minor declares himself to be of
age, and is in consequence sold
liquor by the saloon man, the lat
ter is guilty under the law and sub
ject to its penalties.
The case passed on was an ap
peal from Linn county. An Al
bany saloon keeper sold liquor to a
boy of 19. When asked if he was
of age, the minor replied that he
was 21. On this showing the
saloon man sold the liquor, and
was subsequently arrested. In the
circuit court he pleaded the boy's
statement as a defense. The court
held that the declaration of the
minor that he was 2 1 did not re-
' lieve the saloon man of responsi
bility under' the law, and the de
fendant was adjudged guilty and
fined. The case was appealed, and
the supreme court in its decision
Monday, afSrms the decision of the
The decision settles for all time
. a point upon which there has long
been doubt. It places the saloon
man in the position where he must
absolutely know -that the appli
cant for liquor is 21. before he can
sell him liquor without taking
, chances of violating the law. Tlie
whole responsibility in the case
lies on "him, and hereafter, of course
the prudent saloon man' will simply
take no chances.
Marriage Wednesday of Miss Harriet
Herron and C. A. Bushnell1
Quite a number of friends met in
the pleasant home of Mr and Mrs
Hugh Herron, on Wednesday
moruing, to witness the marriage
of Miss Harriet Herron to , Mr
C A Bushnell, son of Mr and
Mrs J C Bushnell of Eugene,"
Promptly at the appointed hour
of half past nine, the bridal party
entered the parlor, preceded by
Mr H C Herroti. eroomSfflan, and
Miss keab. Barclay, maid of honor,'
to the sweet strains of Mendelssohn
weddine march, rendered by Miss
Edna Finley. Rev J Reeves, of
the Methodist church, - South of
Corvallis, in the beautiful ring
ceremony of the church, pronoun
ced the words that made them
husband and wife.
The young couple are the repre
sentativesof pioneer families. The
bride is one of our deservedly
popular young ladies, with a wide
circle of admiring friends. The
groom is a progressive and suc
cessful business man of Seattle,
Washington, formerly of . Eugene.
The bride was becomingly at
tired in white organdie, and car
riedwhite carnations and ferns.
Miss Barclay looked very prettv in
blue organdie and carried bride
roses. The gentlemen wore the
Following the 1 ceremony the
company, after viewing the large
display of handsome presents, in
cluding a number of offerings from
a distance, sat down o a substan

Then amid congratulations, and
a shower ot rice and a liberal sup
ply of old shoes, departed for

Washington is that the frauds have
become so palpable and so exten
sive that Secretary Hitchcock will
. probably ask congress to repeal
As a matter of fact the law never
ought to have beer passed. Men,
smart enougn to occupy seats in
congress, ought to have foreseen
jts consequences. its provisions
are such as not only to afford
speculators-opportunity to corner
timber, but to place a reward on
individual invasion of the law.
The Case of the Portlanders who
swore that they had "frequently
passed over,' certain lands, when
as a matter Of fact they had never
seen the lands at all, is an illus
tration of the temptations the law
sets up to men and- women to hold
an oath lightly for the sake of
supposed gain. Besides, many
citizens, otherwise good, have made
solemn oath that they were taking
the lands for their own purposes,
while at the very moment some of
them had already agreed that certain
speculators should have the lands
as .soon as the titles could be per
fected. AH this together with the
way that has been opened : for lo
cators to fraudulently operate are a
few iniquities of the law, ' for the

At the Opera House Next Saturday
Night, by Local Talent.
When the author undertook the
task of writing the play, "Troubles
of a Married Man." his one - pur
pose must have been to produce
something that would make people
laugh, and in that he was certainly
successful. There is hardly a ser
ious moment in the play. No
tears no deaths, nor anything but
fun. From the time the curtain
rises until it falls at the end of the
last act, the lines are bright, crisp
and witty. There is a plot but no
moral. The author was interested
not in making the world better,
but in making it laugh.
: The scene of the play is Paris.
The characters represent ordinary
business people in ordinary cir
cumstances. Three years before
the Opening of the play, Blondet
and Martinot, were college chums.
The latter'was fast falling in love
with a young lady, Suzanne Ber
gomet by name, when he was
called away to Qanada on import
ant business, leaving his friend to
make further investigations regard
ing the young lady's family, andif
found all right to propose for her
hand in his (Martinot' s) name.
Blondet accepts the trust, but finds
Suzanne so charming that he falls
in love with her himself and mar
ries her. In the meantime he
writes his friend Martinot, dis
couraging reports of Suzanne and
her family, and congratulates him
on his narrow escape from such a
marriage, failing to disclose his
double dealing in himself marrying
Blondet is in partnership with an
old apothecary named Joseph . Poul
ard in the manufacture of Poulard's
Mellifluent Honey Compound for
coughs, colds and pulmonary
troubles, and has just confided in
his partner and told the duplicity
as Martinot, returning to Paris on
a visit, appears on the scene.
Blondet is driven to desperation in
his efforts to prevent a meeting be
tween his wife and Martinot, and
resorts to all sorts of devices to
conceal his perfidy from Lis friend.
Poor old Poulard, a model of virtue
and rectitude, is prevailed upon to
lay aside his fears of jealous
Madame Poulard, who never loses
an opportunity to make his life bur
densome, and escorts Suzanne from
the scene of action to the home of her
mother. But, alas and alack! Su
zanne will not have it so, and drags
her escort away toacarnivaf, where
in the high revel he is lost in the
shuffle, and Suzanne and Martinot
meet. Blondet's and Poulard's
troubles are really only beginning.
But enough! Come and see these
two married men unravel ' the
tangled skein of their troubles. . .
