In state convention at Des Moines
"Wednesday Iowa democrats, by a
decisive majority' voted down a
Jxroposition to indorse the Kansas
City platform. Mr. Bryan had
made strone effort in the state
to br'ng about a different result.
The leading plank in the platform
is an arringnment of the trusts,
and another denounces the bill for
issuine currency on the bonds of
railroad and other private corpora
tions. The pronouncement probab
ly indicates very nearly what the
democratic atitude will be in
national campaign of next year.
ARE TIDYING UP.
"ZXn. Other Towns Desire For Better Ap
; pearances Strikes Them.
Corvallisites talk - much now
about cleaning up the town. The
newt) from the neighboring towns
ief that a general cleaning is in pro
gress in all of them. The constant
cotniDg of newcomers on the hunt
for new homes has occasioned the
general desire for better appearan
ces. Tbe information is that the
Easterners are used to tidy street?,
and that tbey turn up their noses
at towDS where opposite condi
The general statement is that
these newcomers in large numbers
have been discouraged by the un
tidy appearance of things in many
of the ; Willamette valley town?,
jind have packed up their belong
ings and gone kaet again, where
environments were more pleasing.
This has tet Albany, Eugene, In
dependence and other Willamette
-valley townspeople to work in , a.
movement to tidy up.
- In Albany, the work of cleaning
up alley?, cutting grass along the
streets and otherwise beautifying
' things, is going on in full blast.
TJi same thinp- is trim in Tnde-
peDdence. The result, of course will
be that when homeseekers see those
towns thereafter, when the new
order of things is on, more of them
will settle there. News of these
things reaching Corvaliis, has set a
lot of people to thinkiug about the
matter, and many are wondering
it it wouldn't be a good plan . to
inaugurate a similar work in this
town. - ' ' 1
CORVALLIS MAN'S DISCOVERY".
Compound Which Gives to Steel A
. Temper of Wonderful Quality.
The Times has hithertofore had
something to say about B. J. Cas-
t i: , j : - r rj - 1
itrimo j uiscuvery 01 a uuiu wmuu
gives to steel a temper of wonder
ful quality. Mr. Casterline car
ried on a series of experiments here
and the first of the week went to
.Portland, rented a shop and began
demonstrating to interested parties
the advantages of his "discovery.
The most simple experiment1 used
tn bTviw thn nnalit.v nf t.h '. Ipmnpr
obtained by his process is to take a
few sriaviuga off a piece of bard
steel w?- ira drawing knife or other
tool tuujeoted to his process, and
without additional sharpening, af
terward use the same instrument
.to cleanly shave hairs off the wrist
or arm. It is claimed that cutting
the hardest steel, ' produces no ab-
rasure on the edge of the tool.
What is. regarded as a successful-
experiment was made in tempering
armor plate to render it impervious
to shot. Portland capitalists
very much interested in the exper
imenteby Mr Casterline, ami have
made flattering tenders 'of finan
cial aid. It is hoped that 'Mr!
Casterline and the Corvallis friends
-who are associated with ' him, will
realize their expectations.
THEY WERE WED.
Marriage of C. Melville McKeilips and
Miss Olive L. Hamilton. '
- A very pretty wedding occurred
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. W.
Johnson Wednesday evening. The
groom was Prof. C. Melville Mc
Keilips', head of the pharmaceutic
al department at OAC, . the bride.
Miss Olive L. Hamilton, sister of
Mrs. B. W. Johnson. -
The ceremony occurred at , nine
o'clock in the presence of twenty
relatives and friends. To " the
strains of a wedding march, render
ed by Mrs. E F. Pernot. the groom
and Dr. Thompson passed down the
stairway and approached a .floral
altar in the parlors. They were
folllowed by the bride on the arm
of her brother-in'law. Mr. Johnson,
and by the bridesmaid, Miss Emma
Baber, and by F. M. McElfresh,
best man. ' At the altar the . bride
and groom met, and in the cere
mony of the Episcopalian church.
Dr. Thompson united ' them for
life. The bride's gOwn was white
crepe de chine over white taffeta.
Her. long veil was held in place by
genuine orange blossoms.
The congratulations and the charac
ter of the subsequent entertainment
heightened the gayety of the oc
casion. Friends of the couple took
occasion to perpetrate numerous
hilarities. A bill from an alleged
second hand clothing house at Phi
lomath, demanding payment of the
groom for his wedding suit was
read." A telegram to the bride,'
signed "JoQn" ws read. It ask
ed her how it was she could change
her mind so suddenly. A warrant
issued from .an alleged Indiana
court, directing the arrest of the
groom, and giving various alleged
aliases under which he had sailed
as well as being accompanied by
his photo, was introduced into the
proceedings. An alleged telegram
from his father, notified the, groom
that he must hereafter support him
self. Speeches, original poetry,
and all manner of communications,
dispatches and other devices of
jocularity were hurled at Mr. and
Mrs. McKeilips, with the result
that the occasion was a strong con
trast in its gayety with the solemn
ity that so often pervades wedding
Mr. and Mrs. McKeilips are to
occupy their newly improved cot-
cage on College Hill, and will soon
be at home . to their . friends, of

THE NARROW ESCAPE,
His Honor Had From an Unusually Fa
tal Death Judge Greffoz.
Judge Greffoz has his troubles.
Every man does, for that matter;
but they are bad troubles that be
set his honor. - For - several years
he has presided over the police
court of the municipality, v; One by
one. offenders against the peace and
dignity of the city have 1 passed un
der the chastening penalties of his
court. More than once those whom
he has punished, have uttered
threats of bodily harm to his jud
icial person. More than once on
the way home on a dark night, has
his honor thought he spied a lurk
ing danger in the shadow of a lamp
post or a fence corner. Several
times, under the impression that
the villain still pursued him. has
the judge turned a back somersault
in the haste of retreat.
It was a quick and astonishing
caper that he cut the other night
He was on the way, after a hard
day's work, to his home in the su
burbs. Not far from . where he
lives there are two trees under
which he has to pass. It is always
lonely under those trees. Shadows
are always there, and , suggestions
of ghosts and assassins, and on this
particular night, it seemed lonelier
than ever. The j udge had a fore
boding. " He felt sure that . some
thing was about to happen. He
passed under the trees with one
eye looking to the-' right and! .the
other to the left.
Sure enough, just as he passed
there "was a. blinding flash, and a
loud report. His honor felt sure
that his time had come. He was
too weak in body to do his. usual
gymnastic ' stunt. Never a flop
could he flop, but with hair all on
end, and forty million shivers chas
ing each other up his judicial back,
he stood rooted to the .spot.- He
could, he thought, almost - feel the
villain's bullet in his vitals.
But after all the judge still lived.
It was a bold gopher just across .
the fence in Bryant Young's yard,
and not his honor that was the
corpse. And it was the discharge
of a SaYgent gopher gun that, for a
moment had given the 'Corvallis
police court a glimpse of eternity
and all its terrors.

Acquaintances are pleased to see
that Barney Casterline is making
quite a stir among Portland capital
ists with ..his demonstrations of
results of his secret tempering pro
cess. Before going to Portland he
frequently shaved his wrists and
arms to show the quality " of the
temper in his tools and he seems to
be making use of the same means
of demonstration to . Portland ' peo
pie. Friends are beginning to fear
that if he continues on this line his
supply of hair for shaving purposes
is likely to give out, unless he at
tacks his flowing beard. , That
wouid be an alternative very much
to be regretted, and several of his
acquaintences have expressed a
willingness to place theit hairy
arms and during the warm
weather even their, beards-at his
disposal for demonstrative purposes.
