Official Paper of Benton Countr,
COKVALIJ8, OREGON, FEB. 14, 1903.
The state is to have
Draih is to be
The institution at
abandoned. , The
' appropriation . on
is reduced from
iiTn.nootwo vears ago to about
Sn mn hv this session. The re-
comrrtendation of Governor Cham
"berlain was that still another of the
Normals be .'abandoned, reducing
the whole number to two. Though
the legislature will do well in the
elimination of one, it would have
been wise and proper to follow the
recommendation to the letter.
The Normal school idea has been
ttnrwnrked in Oreeon. , Much of
the monev scent on them should
go into the common school fund,
and in the latter much of the in
struction in the so-called Normal
courses should be given. In theoVy
the Normal institutions are forpre
paration of teachers; in practice
they are high schools or minor
colleges, The chief reason for the
existence of so inanv is the desire
of different localities for a graft and
the popular notion that the state
should provide'it. Two thorough
ly maintained and well appointed
Normals are enough for Oregon,
and for their 'purposes are infinitely
better than four poorly provided
for, ' - V )' '
If, as predicted, the legislature
abandons the Drain Normal now
and later on eliminates still another,
the state will have been well served
' - NO OTHER EXPECTED.
. ' .
It is given but from Washington
that the only anti-trust legislation
k be expected from this congress is
the passage of the Elkin's bill. Elk
ins in the role of reeulator of ' the
.trusts is a mammoth joke, His cura
tive for trust evils is about as effec
tive as catnip tea in a yellow fever
epidemic. His measure provides, for
nothing not already covered in the
interstate commerce act. . It . does
not in fact provide such severe pen
alties for the giving of rebates by
railroads as does, the present ,- la w.
It entirely abolishes imprisonment
for such offenses and makes fines
the only punishment. V
Who is verdant enough to be
lieve that,a rebate system of which
it may be truly said that ' 'there
' are millions in it" could be broken
.up by an occasional prosecution
and a fine of ''not more than $20,
000 even 11 a conviction were
ever obtained and sustained by the
highest court, a thing that has
never yet happened?

nau uuwn me Aisea river. j.t was
decided to take them down the riv
er in a flat boat. Thomas Slate
was employed as assistant. H
A dozen of the sheep with their
legs tied were put in - the scow and
five more, similarly bound were
laid in a skiff. The boats wef e
shoved off, with. Peek iri the skiff
and Slate on board the scow. A
hundred and fifty yards down the
stream, there was a drift. That is
where the scow headed for. When
it struck, it went bottom side up
and disappeared, carrying "eleven of
the animals down to & watery grave.
Slate escaped by'Ieaping from boat
to drift at the critical moment.

SAW WITHERS ASSASSIN.
And Heard Him Talk Believe That
he WiH-Collapse Withers Funeral.
Sheriff Burnett and Judge Mc-Fad
den have returned from attendance
on the funeral of the late Sheriff
Withers at Eugene. : The funeral
was one of the largest (in the history
of Xane County. . During the time
there was suppressed excitement
over the fear that indignant citizens
might undertake the squaring of
accpunts with Lyons wsthont wait
for the court to doso.
The prisoner was seen in x the
county jail by Sheriff xJurnett and
other visiting sheriff, of whom there
were several at the funeral. Lyons
is of medium size and of a low or
der of intelligence. When seen, he
was so much overcome by. fear of
summary vengance that he was
much disturbed, and talked withi
difficulty. When the sheriffs ap
proached his cell, he turned his face
in another direction.
Sheriff Huston of Linn, on whose
farm near Shedd, Lyons had wor
ked several years ago, engaged the
prisoner in conversation. The
whole aspect of Lyons during the
talk -was that of abstraction and
abject fear. Many believe he
collapse before his time comes,
trial will , begin in Eugene
weeks from next Monday.
