CENTRAL COMMITTEE MET.
to Hold Primaries
The democratic ceunty central
committee met at. the court house
yesterday. On account of the busy
time and the short notice given
several outlying precincts were not
represented. Chairman "'"1 Davis
presided, and there was : a general
discussion of the question of holdr
ine primaries and county con
vention. Committeeman . Joseph
Smith of Soap Creek, advised
against the plan, and Committeman
Wood of Bloderett, took the same
ground. It was pointed out that
there was no contest among the
democrats for the nomination, and
there was a general expression to
the effect that primaries and a
convention would be useless waste
of effort. By unanimous vote it
was determined that the central
committee should name , the dele
gates. The committee then pro
ceeded to elect delegates to the Al
bany convention with the following
result: Adam Wilhelm, Monroe:
Joseph Smith, Soap Creek: Abner
Woods. Blodgett; S. L- Henderson
and B, F; Irvine, Corvallis.

Kline's for your spring suit.
He came in from Independence
on Thursday and emerged from the
train with an Irish bundle on his
back, tie was greeted with a
chorus of short whistles from the
bystanders. The queer -looking
little fellow . acknowledged the at
tention by responding in kind,
and adding, "The boys all know
Yellow Pup." Out of a dozen
present who seemed to know 5 him
well, no person could tell his real
name, but all agreed that it is
Mack something. The name,
Yellow Pup, is self-inflicted, but to
give Its origin would be too long
a story. Anyway, this name does-
not require a history to lend it
lustre. Mack is rather a noted
character, locally, and what dis
tinction rests upon him has been
acquired without the aid of news
papers. As ne is tne author ot his
own name so he is the author of
his own fame. . . ' .;,
Mack roams the Westside ter
ritory between Monroe and Inde
pendence, and it is a pleasure for
him to lie in city jails and partake
of a bread-and-water diet. Police
men, therefore have no terrors for
him. In truth he greatly enjoys
the diversion of making himself
obnoxious in the presence of offi
cials. The only class of town peo
ple he seems to respect is the bar
tender, and he takes off his hat to
him only when he is broke. . "
, Once upon a time early in the
morning, he was out of funds and
no amount of blandishment would
procure him a drink. Her went
out on a disconsolate walk to, pon
der over the ills of man, and hap
pily chanced upon a lady working
in her flower garden.
"Ah," said he, "I am very sor
rowful this morning, my dear
"Why sir, what is the occasion
of your sadness?" she inquired.
"Oh, it nearly breaks my heart !
to think of it, A very dear friend
of mine died at Monroe last even
ing and I am down to . order the
coffin and get a few articles of
mourning for the family."'
"That is, indeed sad." ; :
"And if you could possibly spare
them, I would so much like to take
some of those beautiful flowers to
lay on the coffin as a tribute from
a poor but devoted friend."
' "Why, my dear man," said the
lady sympathetically, "I am only
too glad to be able.to assist you."
A massive bouquet of choice
flowers was gathered and tenderly
handed over to Mack. He was
profuse in thanks, and departed.
He directed his footsteps to the
nearest saloon ; and easily bargained
the bouquet for four drinks of
whiskey. In answer to the bar
tender's inquiry as to where he ob
tained the flowers, he smiled, gave
his accustomed short whistle, and
in an undertone stated that he had
put up a job on a lady living back
by the Congregational church. .
In Litigation Over Osburn Residence
Property Plaintiffs Again in Court,
There is a new development in
the litigation over the John M.
Osburn residence property in Cor
vallis. A decision by Judge Ham
ilton, recently . mentioned . in the
Times, seemed to give Mr. Osburn
undisputed title to the property.
But, at this week's term a new le
gal move and . a ruling obtained
thereon, continues the matter in
court, and seems to leave , the ul
timate outcome subject to that doubt I
that always attends litigation.
The case is known on the docket
as Groves versus Osburn. When
Osburn went into bankruptcy the
Corvallis residence was set aside by
the bankrupt court for the benefit
of the bankrupt in compliance with
the homestead exemption act of the
state which releases homesteads
from exemption for debts contract
ed after passage of the law in 1893.
William Groves brought suit to re
cover money on a note given by
defendant prior to the - passage of
the homestead exemption law. At
the November term Osburn' s attor
neys filed a demurrer, which in a
decision, handed down a few weeks
ago, Judge Hamilton sustained.
At this week's term Groves' lawyer
filed an amended complaint to
which defendants demurred, but
the demurrer was overruled. The
defense has been given 30 days in
which to file answerand plaintiffs 10
days for reply, after which the court
stenographer is to take testimony
and report to Judge Hamilton in
July, at Toledo during the court
term of Lincoln County.

accountant, and in a social way his
friendship came to be prized by
many. . Then he left Corvallis and
went with G. .W.Hunt as auditor,
on lines the well known contractor
was building in the vicinity of
Walla Walla. More of Mr. Smith's
history, and "new developments
