claim that the delegation is mixed,
but the Hermann - men say it is

a recess of 20 minutes was 1 made.
Some of i the delegates explained
that they had come in on the train,
and desired to get through in time
to take the two o'clock train for
home. Others preferred a recess
until one o'clock and an amend
ment was offered to that effect. By
a rising vote the amendment was
carried, and adjournment was taken
to one o clock. v
: At the afternoon sessionl, the re
ports of the committees were adopt-,

A WARRANT OUT.
Three Boys and Their Troubles One is
Young Geer Trial Tomorrow.
A - warrant,; r charging assault
hangs over one or all of three
young men who arrived Saturday
with a band of cattle for the X. Bt
Geer iarm, or.W. H, Odell farm, as
the case is, a mile west of Cor
vallis. ' One of the, lads is a son of
L, B. Geer, ex-state land agent.
The warrant was issued by ' a
Buena Vista justice, and is in the
hands of a Buena Vista constable
for service. It was sworn out by
the father of a Buena Vista girl and
the charge is assault. The trial - is
to occur at Independence., at three
o'clock tomorrow afternoon. It is
said that much indignation is mani
fest at Buena Vista toward the de
fendants. , r -
But few of the details of the af
fair are obtainable. The defendents
were enroute from Marion county
with a band of cattle, which they
were bringing to the Benton County
farm. They camped over night at
Buena Vista. During the evening
two girls passed the camp and the
boys engaged them in conversation.
Something happened, nobody seems
to know what, that had for a sequel
the next morning, a visit to the
boys camp of an irate father who
spoke angry words. The boys left
the same morning with their cattle j
hurriedly perhaps, and ahead of
them cime the news that a warrant,
as aforesaid, had been sworn out
No arrests have been made, but the
boys have volunteered to go back
to Independence to face the charge.
Though he admitted that there was
considerable feeling in Buena Vista
over the affair, W. E. Yates lawyer
for the boys, says there is nothing
in the charge.
