NO FLECTION NECESSARY
If a special legislative .session
-should be called, it would scarcely
be worth the while of Benton coun
ty to hold a special election to name
a successor to Senator Daly, If
there is to be alspecial session, it is
pretty certain that it will be of but
few days duration, and that the
work will be confined solely to the
correction oFthe tax bungle. Under
such conditions, it will be a mat
ter of small concern as to whether
or not there is a man from Benton
In the senate. The tax law can be
corrected as well without his aid as
"-with it. The session can meet, or
ganize, do its business and adjourn
qtrite'as successfully, with the seat
from Benton vacant as it could with
two or half a dozen men in it.
To hold a special election for the
Dnroose of naming: a senator would
cost Benton County $700 in gold.
To call such an election, file neces
sary notice, bring judges and clerks
Into service, require people to go to
the polls and to go through all the
evolutions of a county election for
the mere tmroose of havine a man
to sit three or four days in the sen
ate at a special session would . ap
. -near to be a useless and senseless
proceeding. In so brief a time,
and on so small a job, the man elec
ted could do no good, and since he
would cost $700 and might do harm
"it wonM seem better to let the ses
sion come and go, if one be called,
without an election in Benton.
GOVERNOR AND LEGISLATORS.
The responsibility is theirs, if
legislators refuse to accept the con
ditions upon which Governor
Chamberlain offers to convene a
special session. The governor in-
" sists that legislation shall be con
fined to a correction of - the tax
- laws, and that a pledge to that ef
fect shall be made by ; representa
tive legislators, or the call for the
.session will not be issued. His
position is absolutely sound, and
his attitude . most; sensible, The
last session is but a few months ex
pired, and there is neither occasion
nor use for an extended season of
lawmaking at Salem. " A session is
.not needed to enact new laws, but
to correct a bungle that the" late ses
sion made in a new law it attempt
cd to enact. ' : :".
When once convened, the tempt
ation to the members to plunge in ;
to all manner of new schemes I will
.-"be great.- To make new - laws for
one's neighbors to obey is both a
pleasant diversion and comfortable
job for wet winter weeks, It gives
men who think they are , statesmen
-opportunity to spellbind, and gives
men who are never heard of other
wise chanceto have the eyes of allthe
state focused on them for a brief, time
-The opportunity . to be . the main
guys in the state house and - have a
lobby of hangers-on at their coat
tails is unction" to the souls of vain
members and profitable employ
- ment for the mercenary.
All these kinds of people are in
... the legislature, . and. possibly
"enough to make a majority, and if
so, and they go there unpledged to
-speedy adjournment, they "will
Tiang on to the last minute of the
,50 days allowed by law for a spec
ial session, The member who bobs
tip now and smites himself on the
breast and refuses because his dig
" nity is offended in assent to the
, governor's conditions is not
Ing the good of his state and
pie, but a 20 days snap at balem.
He is one of the class mentioned
above and if there is enough of his
kind among the membership to
. prevent the governor's conditions
from being accepted, then," by all
means let there be no extra ses
sion. The assembling of that kind
of a crowd would only be the be
ginning of folly, and if their an
swers to the governor's offer show
; enough of the present membership
to be of such character, it were far
better to bear the ills we have in
lack of revenue than fly to others
that we know not of.
Governor Chamberlain is sound
; in his position, and he will serve
the people well if he refuses to
swerve from the policy he has
- adopted. Nobody wants a flood of
new laws to confuse and confound
the public and make business for
: the courts.
IN HIS GRAVE.
William Groves Funeral From the
Methodist Church Last Tuesday.
"The funeral of the late William
Groves, whose death : occurred last
week, took place Tuesday after
noon. The service was at the
Methodist church at two o'clock,
and was conducted by Rev. "" Weir
of Albany, who is an old friend of
the family, assisted by Rev. F. L.
Moore-; The casket occupied a
place in front of the altar, and was
buried beneath a lavish offering of
beautiful floral pieces. Tables about
the altar were also laden with flow
ers and floral emblems in great pro
fusion. A number ot the front 1
seats were held in reserve while the
audience was assembling, and were
occupied when the service opened
by masonio orders, the family and
others who en'ered in the follow'
ing order: Rev. Weir and Rev
Moore, members 01 . ; the masonic
fraternities in a bcdy, the casket,
the bereaved family and relatives,
the members of the Eastern Star,
in a body.. During the service the
choir sang three numbers, v and
these with tne prayer ana a
brief sermon constituted the solemn
ceremony. At the close of the
service, Corvallis lodge A. F & A.
M. took charge gf the body, and the
interment at (Jrys'al L,axe was un
der the beautiful burial rites of the
order, an order by the way. to
which the deceased was intensely
i The passing of Mr. - Groves . is a
source of keenest grief to a wide
circle of friends'. , Until the day; he
was stricken with paralysis, he was
to all appearance hale and strong,
and none guessed how soon he was
to be taken. He was about town as
usual, a familiar figure, whom
many a friend was pleased to meet
and greetv In all the essentials of
good ' citzenship' he was particu -larly
strong, and in those fine quali
ties that make men "prized in the
home and among friends, he was
richly endowed, . '
William Groves was born in Ber
keley. County, West Virginia, Jan
uary 13, 1832. He came with his
father to Ohio at the age of six' years
ana settled in Clearmont County,
nearBatavia. In 1853 he came across
tne isthmus 01 camornia, and in
1864 he settled in Oregon. Septem
ber 24, 1865 he was united in mar
riage to Miss Emma Horning, who
survives him. 1 he surviving chiL

"Tom, dear," said Mrs. Newly wed
the other evening, just as they were
about to leave the house for the the
ater, "I've left my fan on the dress
ing case in my room, and I can't go
without it. .Won't you run op and
get it, that's a dear?"
Tom went up three steps at a time,
, says the Philadelphia Ledger. . A mo
ment later his voice was heard, awfully
sharp for a man who had been married
but three months.
"It isn't on the dresser." , -
"Why, yes, it must be, dear. Iiook
in the upper drawer in that long blue
box in the left-hand corner. Don't
muss things all up. , Is it there?" -
"No, it isn't."
"Oh, it must be. ' Look good. Found
it?" ' : :, . ;
"No, I haven't." :
... "Well, don't get cross about it. May
be I left it on the bed. Is it there ?"
"No. I'll be"
"Tom! If you.can't do a little favor
for your wife without swearing about
4t, you needn't do it at all. . Look in
the second drawer of the dresser in
that pink box. Is it there?"
"No, it isn't, and I knew it wasn't be
fore I looked!" . ;
"You didn't know: anything of the
sort! Do find it some place. ;. We're
late now. Maybe it's on the manteL

"Tom! If you don't stop IH take off
my things and stay at home ! If you'd
look for the' fan instead of prancing
around you'd find it. . See if it lain my

there. Found it?"
"Found it ?" snarled Ton, jeeringly.

It's nothing compared to a-' .

you speak that way "again I'll stay at

table and what are you doing up
there, anyhow? Upsetting chairs and
kicking over things and growling like
some wild animal. I'd be ashamed.
I suppose I shMl have to come up and i
hunt for the fan myself, tired as I am.
Can't you find it?" v ' . ; - i- ;

well hunt for the nerth pole or Capt.
