: the fact that they were very light, the
"Forest Grove men defeated the local
eleven by a score of 17 to naught.
Last year, thetables were reversed
and the Collegians administered a. de
feat by a large score. In the latter
' game some of the Forest Grove men
only weighed 120 pounds, while their
center only tipped the beam at - 145.
This year, their average weight is

lads, and their strength ia much
greater than ever before. Among
tbem is John Sweefc, a heavy fierce
player, who was once a formidable
tackle on the local team. The kickoff
will be at three o'clock, and the ad-
i mission 25 cents. ;;
A dispatch In Saturday's Pertland
Journal indicates that George F. Etr-
lin Is married, at Ashland, although
none of bis Corvallla friends bad been
apprised of the tact. The news is
that George acts as a nlgbtwatchman
at Ashland; that he was going home
early Thursday morning and as he
thought discovered a man following
him tor an evil purpose; that George
'commanded him to halt, and upon a
failure on the part ot the former to
comply, George shot him, and when
George went up to him he discovered
that be had shot his father-in-law.
The wound is not serious. The name
of the injured man was not given, but
George's prospective father-in-law is
known to have been Peter Hoover, an
oli resident of this and Lincoln coun
ties. Mr. Hoover went south nearly
a month ago, and be la probably the
person wounded. No other particu
lars can ba learned here. ;

the title implies, the book is of mu

nic for violin pupils... It Is very neat
ly printed, and its contents reflect
much credit upon Mr. Turney, As
the studies are called out by defects

The game of football between the
Agricultural College team of Pullman,
Washington, and the OAC eleven is to
take place on OAC field Wednesday
aftemocn of next week. 1 The game
was declared off by ; the . Washington
men 'a few days ago, but a later tele
gram from tbem - asked that it be
played. Manager . Hay ward agreed
and next Wednesday the contest will
occur according to the , original con
tract. Last Saturday the Seattle
team which recently defeated OAC
5 to naught, played the Pullman men
a 10 to naught game. Figuring thus,
tbe contest should be very close.
Their friends say that In the coming
games the OAC lads will wipe out any
disappointments their partisans may
feel on account of the unsatisfactory
game at Albany last Saturday. The

FLIGHT OF THE APOSTLES.
They Scented Danger, and Hurriedly
Deserted Their Band of Local Rollers..
The newest development in the
Holy Roller situation ia the flight
ol the two aposties, Creffield and
Brooks. Their going was hurried,
and with more or less secrecy. A
fear for their personal safety is sup
posed to have been the incentive to
depart. The possibility that they
received a message from on High
for them to go hence is suggested
by sinners, but a favorite theory is
that warning ; given the men by
officers and by their friends had
much to do with their flying start
and final farewell,
Both men were impressed with
the fact that callous Corvallisites
were laying for them. When Dep
uty Henderson led them out of jail
after they had established their
sanity before the county board, he
warned both of the existence of a
strong public sentiment against
them, and advised them to escape
while there was yet time.- They
laughed at the idea, and said that
the Lord would take care of his own.
In fact, Creffield .flared up and told
Deputy Henderson not to talk any
more to him. ,This happened Fri
day night, and both the apostles af
ter leaving the jail, returned to the
ASKED PROJECTION. -
At noon Saturday, Mr. Hurt
accompanied by his son appeared
at the sheriff s office, and asked
for protection. , He said if the coun
ty authorities would notf protect
him, be would appeal to the gov
ernor. Sheriff Burnett replied that
he would use every endeavor to af
ford ample protection. , He added
that if Creffield and Brooks would
leave the house, that there would
be no further need of fear, or re
quirement for protection. '
Sheriff Burnett spent most of the
night in the Hurt house. He went
over after supper, knocked at the
door, and was admitted without
question or cavil There was a big
crowd outside, but there was not at
any time a hostile demonstration.
It was Saturday night, and the
spirit of Halloween was abroad, but
nothing happened inside or outside
the place. By midnight the crowd
had disappeared, and sometime af
ter that the sheriff left the place.
The flight of the apostles occur
red late the next afternoon. Gen
eral report is to the effect that thesf
were anxious to get away- early m
the day, but that there was always
a crowd around the house, and
they did not want to hazard an es
cape under such environments. The
crowd stayed and stayed, increas
ing in number until after rnidafter
noon. Towards evening people be
gan to go supperward, and SOtne
time after four, Brooks was seen to
leave the house, and walk swiftly.
away. He traveled towards Cor
vallis and disappeared so far as is
known, and has not since ' been
seen. There are sugge'stions that
he is still in hiding at one of the
Holy Roller homes, but this is
not generally accepted. One man
saye he saw Brooks mount a bi
cycle, taking the back streets for iti
and pedalling for all his life ; was
worth; '. The apostle was probably
then quitting Corvallia ; for good
and aye. '
"''',.- FI,ET IN A BUGGY.
.It was an hour later when the
chief apostle,' Creffield fled. A
buggy driven by one of the mem
bers of the sect, appeared at the
door of the house. The door open
ed, and Creffield came oat and has
tily entered the vehicle. The bug
gy with its two occupants drove
swiftly away, and - disappeared to
the southward. ! It is supposed to
have gone to some Eastside town
where the apostle took a train for
other scenes. Another story is that
Creffield's final start did not take
place until Monday morning. It
is averred that he was takea across
the fiver abova the Mills in a row
boat, that a buggy subsequently
met him beyond the ferry, and
thence'proceeded with him to an
Eastride railroad. ' : V
Various incidents tended to an
ger the public towards the apostles.
It was known that both had ' for
some time subsisted mainly, if not
entirely at the Hurt home. It was
figured out that- as leaders in the
new scheme, they were leading
women, girls and others into delus
ions and unnatural conditions.
There were also reports of , various
kinds in circulation, some perhaps
true and some untrue, with refer
ence to the teachings of the apostles
and the effect of these reports was
to stimulate public wrath. One of
these reports is that Creffield taught
that marriage was ; not necessary.
Whether he did or not, cannot be
declared here. He got the credit
for it, and that did as . much as
anything else in his system to bring
him into public reproach, v
A BITTER ALTERNATIVE.
.Another feature that the ' public
resented was that in . which wives
and daughters in the home jo ned
the sect aud other members of tbe
family did not. The teachings of
the apostles is that the members of
the sect are withdrawn from the
world, and must have nothing to
do with those who remain in the
world. Brooks declared this in his
examination for sanity, if reports
be true. . A bitter alternative - was
necessarily left to a husband whose
wife was in the sect and he was not,
She was out of the world, " and he
was of the earth earthy, and ' she
would have nothing to do with
him. Whether or not : any of the
Corvallis families involved reached
that poiit is not known, The de
claratidrjjof Brooks renders it- cer
tain thaf to such " an alternative is
exactly fvfiere: the teachings of him
self andfjXpostle Creffield distinctly
trendecUFbat was why the furniture
was burned, thecats and dogs killed
and burned and; other things des
troyed r It was for the removal of
all earthly things' from contact
with the apostles and their discip
les. : ,r f :
Another feature that was fruit
ful in tricking public wrath was the
scene into which the officials enter
ed when they took Creffield and
Brooks into custody for the exami
nation as to their sanity. The girl
with tfie cloth over ber face was in
an apparent stae of trance. She
was receiving a ,socalled message
from the Almighty, and others, on
mats, xugs and blankets around the
room were noting it down. Creffi
eld was close beside the girl with
his head near hers on the pillow.
This incident has been told and re
told and always with indignation,
in which, true or untrue, Creffield
is set down as a moun'ebahk.
talked tar and Leathers.
All these and other consider
ations caused many a reference to
tar and feathers, to vigilance com
mittees, and to proposals to find
means forj sending the apostles
away. , It is certain that there was a
well defined purpose on the part of
a body of determined persons to
seek the apostles out, to take them
across the Willamette, to tell them
to clear out, and then if they hesi
tated or neglected to obey orders,
to administer tar and'feathers.
That something of the kind would
have happened if the spectacular in
cident at the tiurt bouse ., naa con
tinued is entirely!! probable. On
both Friday and Saturday nights
there were reports current that
something was sure to happen ; be
fore morning. The flight of the
apostles, however prevented trou
ble, and the public mind is again
at rest. With the other members
of the sect, nobody so far as is
known, has any quarrel.
- A matter that created - general
remark, is the personal appearance
of some of the members of the sect.
"They are haergard of face and hol
low of eye. There is a whiteness
and wanness of complexion that is
unnatural. , That they 'labor at
times under great mental and ner
vous excitement is undoubted,
That the practice of their ' peculiar
faith at least in its most violent form
is harmful to both mind and body
is generally believed, That it may
ultimately send some of them into
the mad house is freely predicted.
That a short cut from heaven tothe
bug house by the - Holy Roller
route would be a most regrettable
end to this season of spiritual eleva
tion is a" sentiment that is freely

At other houses than at Hurts, there
has been burning of worldly things
like furniture, carpets and clothing.

Neighbofs were awakened by a
bright light in the Starr back yard

that there was a fire, What met

Whether in any other of the four or
fivehouses in town in which in whole
