Official Paper of Benton County,
COBVALLIS, OREGON NOT. 89, 190
WAT HALF A MILLION.
It has been figured out that,
should the Oregon legislature ap
propriate $500,000 to the 1905
fair, the farmers of Oregon would
pay $142,000, or only about 28 per
cent of the sum. In the state there
are 58,490 people engaged in agri
culture, as calculated on the basis
of the 1900 census. On a $500,000
appropriation, of which $256,000
-would be collected in 1904 and an
equal sum in 1905 the average
that each farmer would have to pay
would be $43 for the two years
or $i.2i cents each year.
Of the $500,000, Multnomah
county would have to pay in taxes
$156,150, or considerably more
than would the farmers of the state
In addition, the city of Portland,
by voluntary subscription has al
ready contributed $350,000 to be
' used for the fair,
With reference to the appropria
tion,' whatever it is to be, it may be
said that Portland, though a heavy
tax payer, is rarely the beneficiary
of appropriations at the hands of
the legislature. That city has no
institution of importance that the
state is annually called upon to aid
and her legislative members are not
often at the capital as now, with
their hands out for gold.
An Indianasheriffhas been deposed
from office by the governor because a
negrojinjhiscustody'was lynched by a
mob. The law however, that gave
the governor the right to do so. al
so erives the sheriff the right to
show that he was powerless to pre
vent the lynching, in which case he
may, if the governor sees fit, be
restored to office. If the sheriff's
political complexion is all right,
his case is not. hopeless, but other
wise he will have to hunt another
job, and that is about all the law
An Illinois man is sought by the
constabulary. says the Eugene
Gtnrd, " because he vhas four
wives. " If he were in Utah, he
would have a chance to go to the
United States senate. If he were
in Sulu.he would get ajpension from
a paternal government. As it is
he will probably land in the pen
itentiary. And thus environment
makes or mars man's life.

Duncan were married at the home
of Mr and Mrs Frank Hubbard,
this city, last ; night at 7 o'clock,
Rev J K Thompson ot the Presby
terian church, officiating.
The affair, although . quiet, was
none the less pleasant and im
pressive. The room was beauti
fully decorated with white chry
santhemums and evergreens, the
bride carrying white carnations.
After the ceremony delicious re
freshments, were served 'by Mrs
The bride and groom were, the
guests of Mr and Mrs W S Irwin,
who are making their home at the

He is an engineer in the employ of
the Katy railroad company, and a
more popular young man never
ran an engine out of Parsons,
The bride, Miss Clara Duncan,
is comparatively a .stranger in this
city, but during her brief sojourn
here has already made a large num
ber of friends. She is a talented
member of the noble army of teach,
ers and has just resigned a position
m the Parsons public school where
she was highly esteemed
her professional qualifications and
as a member of society,
to going to Parsons, she taught at

she was a universal favorite.
Mr and Mrs Baker "will be at

Sam King has constructed some
thing like a half a block of side
walk along the front of his pro
perty just north of the' saw mill,
down to the high water mark or a
little further. Beyond the north
end of Mr King's walk, people are
not disposed to make such improve
ments from the fact that the river
over flows that locality for a con
siderable distance, and a board walk
is liable to be carried away or bad

WATCHING THE PRICES
Sugar has Advanced and May
Higher Salt Trust at Work.
Local merchants are watching
the fluctuation Jof sugar and salt in
the price scale. Sugaf, which has
been for some time at $4.50 recent
ly advanced to $5 per sack. The
tenor of the dispatches seem to in.
dicate further advances. A late
one says that a big wholesale firm
in the East bought an immense
stock of sugar during the late ad
vance, and that in expectation of
another of the kind expects to make
a pile of money. It also says that
sugar on the New 1 York market,
inspire of the recent advance is
very firm, and that it is expected to
go higher, considering the statistics
of stocks on hand. Last year, the
price stood steadily for sometime at
f'6.75 per sack in the local market,
and both dealers and consumers are
hoping that the experience is not to
Salt is also a staple whose price
is considered a trifle uncertain.
The price of stock salt, not long
ago was $1.25 per sack. Before the
Salt trust was formed it was as low
as 45 cents per sack. Recently the
price, on account of opposition from
local firms in salt works in Califor
nia declined to $1. 16, at which fig
ure it now stands. A dispatch yes
terday, however, relates that the
Federal Salt trust is negotiating a
deal ""by which the independent
California works are to be absorbed
by the Trust, and that the Pacific
Coast market will thereafter be con
trolled by the combination. It also
adds that a jump in the price will
probably result if the deal material
izes. With tabl? salt at $1.50 and
1 stcck salt at $1.10 per sack already,
j both dealers and consumers hope
j tnat any coming cnange m ngure
may be for a lower instead 01 a
EXCURSION WILL RUN
A Five Coach Special to Take Corval
lisites and Students to Albany
The biggest crowd that ever went
out of Corvallis to another town to
see a football game will go to Alba
ny next Saturday to see the contest
between the OAC and the Albany
college elevens. A special train of
five coaches is to carry the people
over and bring them back again. It
is to leave the Corvallis & Eastern
station at 1:30 p m sharp, and is to
return immediately after the game.
Three hundred tickets are to be is
sued, as sixty is the number allot
ted to each coach, and these will be
placed on sale perhaps today: if
not today, then early in the coming
week. The train has been chartered
by supporters of the team, and the
balance if any, i to be devoted to
payment of the teams expenses in
preparing for the - game, which
aggregate about $100. The fare for
the roundtrip is one dollar.
The game ought to be a very fine
one . I he two elevens are supposed
to be very evenly matched. The
Albany eleven has played two and
ual one naugnt to naught game
with the University of Oregon this
season. 1 he Albany team has an
adv antage in that it has been two
years under the same trainer, while
many of the OAC players are work
ing under a coach this season for
the first time in their lives.' The
latter have however some very fine
points, and their friends are conn
dent that the farmer lads will acquit

A Typical South African Store.

which can be purchased anything
rom the proverbial needle to an
anchor." This store is situated in
a valley nine miles from the near
est railway station and about twenty-five
miles irom the nearest town.
Mr. Larson says: "I am favored
with the custom of farmers within
a radius of thirty miles, to many of
whom I have supplied Chamber
lain's remedies. All testify to their
value in a household where a doc
tor's advice is almost out of the
question. Within one mile of my
store the population is perhaps six

months, no less than fourteen have
been absolutely cured by Chamber
