For Removal" to Eugene of . Coryallis
Carriage Factory. . j
Wednesdays'- Eugefce ; Register:
The committee appointed to in
vestigate the Corvallis Carriage &
Wagon factory were present at the
meeting of the Commercial Club
last night and W G Gilstrap as
chairman submitted a report going
into detail giving the ' inventory
value of the machinery, stock on
hand and the cost of turning out
the finished product. It was brought
out that the factory has not suc;
ceeded from the very beginning for
lack of - proper , management and
that in its resent location it will
probably never be a success owing
to the cloud haneine over it due
to business methods employed
The report showed that1 instead of
$35,000 being necessary to ; capital
ize the factory ad put it on a tho
rough business .basis. $15,000
would bring the machinery and
stock here, put up a building and.
furnish ample money for operating.
- After the report was submitted
E C Smith also a ,member of the
committee stated that if Eugene
would furnish a site and $1800 he
would furnish the capital necessary
to put the plant in- operation m
this city under his - own manage
gement with as good a carriage
maker as can be had anywhere in
charge of the manufacturing de-.
It was thought that , a desirable
site can be had for $800 .. making
Eugene's gift to the enterprise
$1800. R McMurphy said he
would give JSioo, Mayor ; Chrisman
said the factory would be a good
thing for the city and would help
it along, others including President
Paine spoke in the same strain. -----
The chair then appointed K Me
Murphy as a member of the com
mittee together with W G' Gilstrap
and F M Wilkins to look up a site
see what can be done to raise the
$1,000 and report at a special meet
to be held next Tuesday evening.
FOR CONSCIENCE SAKE
A violent sickness Is suspected to
have resulted from something eaten
by Misses Edna and Ada Flnley the
other day. Sunday afternoon one of
the young ladies was taken ill And
she so remained throughout the ev
ening. The following morning the
sister was attacked in a similar way.
and with . symptoms - exactly iden
tical. Cheese, eaten by each shortly
before the illness Is suspected to have
been the cause. ' A sample of the
cneese was sent to tne college for ex
animation, but at last accounts no re
port has been made.
In contrast with the heavy de
ficit at the State University, there is
a balance of about $100 in the treas
ury aa a result of the football cam
paign at OAO during the past - sea
son. The total receipts, aside from
the student tax, which . was expended
on the grand stand and fence, was
over $1,200, About "one half the
amount was paid out for the expenses
and share of the gate receipts to visit
ing teams. - The receipts from , the
grand stand were sufficient to . pay
about one third the cost of that struct
ure. The Indications are now for a
very successful season next year, both
financially and otherwise.
The Ladles Afternoon Beading club

An incident that Miles. Starr en
countered the other day, - almost
floored him. It happened at his
fruit and confectionery store. A
young man entered. ' He glanced
around, and then looked the pro
prietor straight in the eye. He
paused a second, apparently nerv
ing himself for his errand, and then
began: "I stole a water melon
from you last summer, and a lot
of chewing gum. - I watched my
chance, and when opportunity pre
sented, 1 seized tne melon and
gum and made off with them. :
haven't felt exactly right'since, and
I want to "square myself. I have
come to pay for both articles; what
is the amount? '
Proprietor Starr eyed his friend
for a moment, recovering gradually
from his surprise, and then buckling
down to business,' fixed forty cents
as a reasonable price for the stolen
goods. The boy paid the .bill, than
ked the proprietor, and walked
away with a light step, evidently
feeling better - than he had for
months. The proprietor watched
the retreating form, and doubtless
reflected that the young man had
advanced in life to the forks of -the
road, by accident had taken . the
wrong path, had found it out, and
in time to save himself had crossed
over to the right road where he is
almost sure throughout the rest of
his life, to be found. -
