HIS FAIR CHALLENGE. "
" Resident Roosevelt offers open
"battle to the democrats on a fair
eld next year. Twice in public
address since his t Western ; tour
began," he has declared that there is
to be no tariff revision until after
tiie presidential election, which in
terpreted means that there is to be
no revision at all by Mr. Roosevelt's
party. The utterance is a frank,
open challenge.to the. democrats to
iight next year's battle on the tar
iff issue, and, at a time when the
disadvantages to ' the republican
position -are most : manifest. It -is
the issue upon which the democrat-
ic party has survived lor a hundred
years, and upon which,; it is stron
gest and best united. It is the is
sue upon ; which its greatest, tri
umphs have , been won. If s the
democrats choose to accept the
challenge., Mr. Roosevelt will have!
to .fight enemies, not only in front
but in the rear. There is a great
schism in his own party, , and for
two years great newspapers and
leading statesmen therein ; have
been urging a revision of the tariff
withi intelligence and determination..
To profess a wish to curb or con
trol the trusts and at the same time
to demand a high tariff for , these
monster organizations of aggregated
wealth and watered stock to feed
upon, will place Mr. Roosevelt in a
-position both inconsistent and inde-.
fensible. Until American people
can buy American made goods at
; prices as low as they are sold , for
ip Europe and elsewhere, trusts and
tariffs to enrich trusts, . cannot be
successfully defended. . ,Yet , Mr.
Roosevelt is frank, fair and open.
He offers to fight the democrats on
the, very field that they Ought to be
most eager to select.
MR. HERMANN'S GHOST, x
"It seems strange that the' Eu:
gene convention should have : turn
ed from the bright and blameless
v young men offered as candidates,
to name Mr. Hermann for congress.
Mr.' Hermann is ever a genial per.
son, and time was, when he was a
, , useful congressman. But a stalk
ing ghost follows him now. It
points an accusing finger and asks,
" constantly, '.'Why, Mr. Hermann,
did you quit office under the Roose
velt administration?" V .
i Apparently, the Eugene dele
gation did not see this ghost; yet it
is to be reckoned with. Either Sec
retary Hitchcock was wrong,' or
Mr. Hermann as commissioners was
ftwrong. The president retained Mr.
Hitchcock, and Mr. Hermann was
sent home wearing scar and blemish;
i For an Oregon convention under the
circumstances to insist on returning
hira to Washington, rehabilitated
and clothed with new power, is, ; at
least, unexpected. More respect
would seem to be due the adminis
tration. . i . ;

WENT TO SEE KOEHLER,., ' (-
And Sent Petition s-The MorBing and
'A Evening Train for Corvalli j
Wednesday's Tmrs said fiothr
ing had been done by Corvallis
ites.for securing a -morning and ev
ening train service over the West"
side; .That was an ' - error, - . The
Times fell into' it ; through the
statement of an Independence man
I who was in Corvallis. V Iast -' week
. JN. wilkins circulated a petition
asking the railroad company to
grant the service, and secured many
signers. The petition was forward
ed to ; the company at Portland.
In addition, W,; E. Yates, M S
Woodcock and H. W. Hall, while
in Portland about the same time,
called on Manager Koehler and had
an hour's conversation with him
on the subject of the proposed train
service., They urged-with the best
reasons they . could command that
the better service be extended "Cor
vallis. ' : J
Mr. Koehler was kind, and ap
parently anxious to accommodate.
But, he quoted figures without
limit, setting forth the expense
which the scheme would put his
company. The impression that he
gave his callers was that the South
ern Pacific was hardly likely to put
on the train.
Mr. Koehler said the easiest and
cheapest way for Corvallis- to be
served with a morning' and ev
ening train was over the C. & ; E.
from Albany. . He said he had
urged Manager Stone of the C &
E. company to put on a morning
and evening train, connecting with
the seven o'clock local from Albany
into Portland. Mr. Koehler ' also
indicated that the reply " of Mr.
Stone was, that such a train had
been operated for a time between
Corvallis and Albany, and that it
did not pay. ..". .
1 Meantime, Corvallis deserves the
morning and, evening train, if not
via one, then over the other route.
Effort, unitedly arid persistently ap
plied by many people, can accom
plish wonders. Progress does not
come to a town that sits down and
waits for it. , If the agitation now
'on is continued, doubtless a way
will be found for.securing this train
service. Its establishment on a
permanent basis, would be one of
the very best . things that could
happen, to Corvallis.'
TO KEEP RECORD NOW.
Of JByer? Birth?, Every, Death., and
s JBwial Qertificaf es ' of Burial, t ;
V f' - " -, '
1 It U necessary now tot make- offi
cial rfcc(rd of every birth and every
death. A new law that is already
in effect, requires every ; physician,
midwife or head of the family to
give notice by the end of the month
to the county, health, officer of any
birth that . occur .under his :; or
her charge. Every physician mid-
wife or head of a family must give
notice to such health officers within
48 hours of every death. No burial
can take place until a proper burial
certificate has been made out, and
transmitted to . the county health
U All these requirements are the
result of the act creating .the stateJ
board of health, which passed the
last legislature. . It ,s contained an
emergency clause, and took" effect
on its approval by the . governor.
It creates a county, aa well as "a
state health board. The county
board,is - the . county judge and
county physician. If there is no
countv ohvsicianvas is the case in
1 Benton, then the county judge r is
the county board of health as -well
as the county health officer.
i- To this officermust b e reported
"all infectious diseases, deaths,
causes thereof, places of burial of
every person, s that dies in said
county, and in the case of birth V of
any child give name of parents,
their residence and their occupation.
: Power is given the County Boird
of Health to quarantine against in
fectious diseases in other county or
counties of the state, to quarantine
any case or cases of infectious dis
eases within said county, and to
call upon all police officers, sheriffs H
and constables'to enforce such quar
antine. All cases of birth, f. death,!

Hermann lacked but a few votes of I S"A G,hS5 8iati.5erv
a majority, but his forces went to
, pieces, and on the 16th ballot his
strength fell to 40. ; After the op
position failed to get together, the
Hermann forces rallied and won.
