ORATOR SMITH WON.
BEAT DOWN ALL OPPONENTS
THE ORATORICAL CONTEST
Is no Longer a Young Thing
O. A. C. Man Got Fourth Place
A Twelve Hours' Wait
for Train and a Si rike
A man 30 to 40 years of age. and
seven years a preacher of the Gospel
' won the first prize in the slate ora
tjncal contest at Eugene. It is no
fault to be advanced in years, but
b till its funny for an old fellow like
that, to go up against lads and las
ses of 19 to 20 in an oratorical con
test They say that the mies who
took second place in the same .con
test has filed application for the a
ward of the old gentleman's prize
on the ground that the figuring was
wrongly done, and that a recount
correctly -made, would give first
place to her, and second to him.
She ought to withdraw the contest
on account of the respect due to
gray hairs. Any man who ws with
Noab in the Ark, so to speak, ought
not to be disturbed in the lawful
possession of any prize that has fal
.. lea t'i him. There if something
grand in the contemplation of one
who helped to build the pyramids
and who was for some time a mum
my himtelf, and the venerable Mr
Smith ought to be let alone in the
enjoyment of bis prize. Anybody
who hasn't any more appreciation
of a grand old ruin or an antique
relic than o seek to rob Smith of
his honors ought to be kicked out
of the oratorical association, provid
ed she be not a pretty young maid
en, as is the case with the young
woman who thinks she ought to
have Smith s place.
The accounts' are that Friday
night s contest was a howling suc
cess. Ninety peopl9 went up there
from O. A. C. and the hoarseness
, they (nought back with them
proves the quality of the howling.
Their orator, who was Guy E.
Moore,and whoEe subject was "Ol
iver Cromwell, the Man cf Actioo,"
took fourth place in the assignments
that the judges mads. The latter
were, on composition President Da
vid Starr Jordan of Stanford, Pres
ident Benjamin Ide Wheeler of
Berkeley, and President Penrose of
Whitman college. Tbird place was
taken by the State University ora
tor, and first by Erastus Smith, of
McMlonville. Albany college took
seven'h place and Willamette Uni
versity brought np the rear. Next
year's meeting of the association oc
curs at Newberg, and l? to happen
On the last Friday in January, or
two weeks earlier than has been the
custom. No age limit was added
to the by-laws at the business meet
ing, and the contest is still open to
people of mature years and orator
ical turn of mind. If, by any new
discovery of science it becomes pos
sible in the near future to resusci
tate the dead, Patrick Henry is to
' be brought forward and scheduled
to represent O. A. C. next time.
In the afternoon at Eugene the O.
A. C. and the University basket
ball team locked horns for a second
time, and it was with difficulty that
the college men won out. In a for
mer game they defeated the Uni
versity men in a score of 32 to 2,
but in Friday's game, play ended
with a score of 24 for O. A. C.
and 22 for the University. The
game was played in a room less
than half the size of the Armory in
which the college men practice,
which placed them at a great disad- j
vantage. The person el of the col-j
lege team was Pilkington, center;
Rinebart and Steiwer, guards, and
IMopres and Stokes, forwards. .'
. It was after 7 p. m. on . Saturday
;tfhen the Corvallia contingent
reached home. Their last hours in
Eugene were mostly marred by a
desire for something to eat anda
fear to go down town after it, be
cause .the train might leave them.
They were due to leave Eugene for
home at 3 a. m., but the train that
was to bring them tore into the
rear end of a freight train a few
miles south of the city, and failed
to appear on schedule time. The
Corvallia push, however, boarded
the coaches at 3 a. m. and began to
wait. Daylight came but no train
had yet appeared. The travelers
dozed in their seats and nursed an
inexpressible desire lor food. ' Not
many of them went down town for
" breakfast because the railroad men
said the train might be expected

hn at last the bell rang and the
train steamed out. -,
-At. Albanv. more trouble over
took them. Things like that never
coma singly. The C. and E. pas-
senger had long ago departed. A
special train could be had for forty
dollars, but some of the travellers
said their tickets ought to take
them witho it extra money. They
didn't care for the fifty cents, they
sud, but they didn't like the prin
ciple involved. A life-sized strike
broke out, and for a time the di
lemma was a bigger thing than that
caused by the delayed train. Sev
eral made speeches in which the
railroad men were denounced as
grinding monopolists and incubu
ses, whils other orators, in efful
gence of eloquence knocked the or
atorical contest of the night before
silly as they defended the railroad.
At last, hunger, loss of sleep aud
weariness prevailed over oratoiy.

The Eugene Guard, commenting
on the contest, says:
"The orators as a group of speak
ers were below the average. There
was indeed, a painful lack of bril
liance and natural delivery. Stud
ied movement, anticipated and of
timea awkward gestures, unskilled
use of the voice and poor platform
presence would fit the majority'of
the orators. The papers were quite
well written. The winner, Smith,
deserved first place in composition
but in the judgment of the audience
he was behind U. O., 0. A: C. and
Newberg in delivery.

Lafayette, Or., March 14. Tom
Hodson, of La Fayette, has been
converted from the sock-leg and tin
can method of hiding money, and
now patronizes a fire and burglar
proof bank vault. It is' said he had
been laying by a portion of his
wages for some time, intending to
use the money for the purpose of
moving to California. He had saved
$420 in gold, and for extra safe
keeping he took up a board from
the floor of his house, dug a little
hole in the ground and planted his
savings, some time ago lorn made
the discovery that his money was
missing. He and a few intimate
friends pursued a still hunt for a
clew ta the mystery, and meeting
with no .access, the loser was bord
ering on nervous prostration. The
loss became known, and one day
last week a friend said he would
like to dig for the treasure. He did
so, and soon louna mat a mercena
ry 20th coutury gopher had dug up
under the money, which had drop
ped down into the gopher hole,
whence it was all recovered. It is
needless to say that Mr. Gopher
won't do any more such rich min
ing under Tom Hodson's house.
Sumpter, Or., March 14. Jesse
Simmons, a miner, whose home is
at Mayville, Or., suffered a severe
accident while at work at the Psy

He was using a crowbar to pry out
a rock, when another rock fell from
above, striking the crowbar in such
a manner as to cause a stone to fly
up, striking Simmons in the eye
and bursting the eyeball. He was
brought here and the eye removed
from the socket. Mr. Simmon's
parents reside at Portland, where
he will be taken as soon as he is
able to travel.

Since his death a wek ago his

house was closely guarded as s o

Then Mrs Wheeler and her hus

A withered old plant was taken

It was necessary to move things

seemed to be reeking witb wealth,
Mrs Wheeler near-ly burned a bun

the fire with a bundle of rags. She
snatched them from tbe flames in

. Philadelphia, March 14. The
police for several days have been
investigating the career of George
who was yesterday , committed to
prison with Mrs Catherine Danze
on the charge of causing the death
of the woman's husband 18 months
ago by poison. Mrs. Danze is said
to be only one of a host of women
whose object in consulting the "doc
tor" was not legitimate. The au
thorities say that they expect to
trace a number of deaths to Hos
sey's potions. One official said to
day: "We are only beginning to un
cover this case. It may prove one
of the greatest criminal events in
the history of the department."
Hossey is the arch-conspirator in
many crimes, the authorities , say.
They have learned that for many
month3past his headquarters have
been patronized by many women
both married and single, whose
names are now in the possession of
the District Attorney. When the

Statl, March 13.-S-a tie caught
two flight shocks from the seismic
movement that went through Wes

tremor appears to have been noted
by but few people. These agree
that the two shocks came very close
tgether between 6:35 and 6:40 J

of more than very feint percepti
bility. Tbe disturbance appears to have
extended from the Gray's Harbor

An unusually perceptible earth

seconds and followed by another
slight tremor, the entire disturbance
lasting nine seconds. A slight
rumbling was al?o heard. .
Aberdeen, Wash., March 13.
Three distinct shocks of earthquake
were experienced here about 6:25
o'clock tonight. In some localities
houses were shaken and the in

Some persons reported that clocks
were stopped and dishes on the ta

Years ago, when Frances was in

several years and had two children.
Then they separated and six years
ago a divorce was granted to tbe
wife, who returned to her parents
and took the children with her.
While visiting in Oswego she
met her former ' husband and be
asked her to go to the theater with
him.' Between the acts they talked
over old times and decided to get
married again.. Although it was
midnight, they hunted up a minis

, The greatest danger from colds
and grips is their resulting in
pneumonia. If reasonable care is
used, however, and Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy taken, all danger
will . be avoided. Among the tens
of thousands; who have , used this
remedy for these; diseases we have
yet to learn of a single case having
resulted in pneumonia, which show
codclusivtly that it is a certain
preventive of that dangerous disea
se. It will cure a cold or an attack
of the grip in less time than any
other treatment. It is pleaBant

The "North Coast Limited" train ' op
erated daily from Portland East by the
Northern Pacific, has proven so popular
that the train was continued this winter
instead of being taken off the run as
during the previous two years. The
traveling public learned that they could
travel on this train just " as cheaply as
they could on any other, and ' once its
popularity became established, the com
pany found that they could hardly get
along without continuing It in operation.
It is an eight car train, electric lighted
throughout, steam heated and solid ves-
tibuled. The train is composed of ex
press and baggage cars, day coaches,
first class Pullman and tourist sleeping
cars, dining cars, and the elegant ob
servation car, whtch is equipped with a
barber shop, bath room, card and smok
ing rooms, an elegant parlor, library of
125 volumes besides all the standard
magazines of the day. This car, aa well
as .the entire train is brilliantly illumin
