Associated Press Account of Saturday's
Contest at Seattle. ; .
Six to five in favor of Washing
ton is the score of the football game
between the elevens of the State
Universities of Oregon and Wash
ington at , Seattle last Saturday,
The account of the game as sent
out by the associated" press for the
smaller newspapers on the Coast is
as follows: : ' ; ,'. .
"In the hardest fought gridiron
fbattle that has been seen in ; the
state of Washington for- years,
Washington this afternoon defeated
Oregon by a score of 6 to 5. The
game was played in ' wind" that was
all but a gale and icy . rain. The
victory was decisive and the dif
ference in the strength of - the two
team is greater than the score in
dicates. Oregon for nearly the
whole, of the game had the wind di
rectly at her back and Templeton's
kicking was largely responsible for
fact that Washington did not make
the score larger. , .. - v ,

The late wind storm, according
to all accounts, was extremely - se
vere in the vicinity, of. the Benton
County saw mill on Greasy Creek,
and considerable damage was
wrought there.. Big fir trees, when
tne storm was at its neighti tell in
all directions, and something, like
forty came down with a crash, un
der the violence of the wind. One
fell through the bunk house and
cut the building in twain. Fprtu
nately the men did not occupy the
house that night, and no one was
injured. . - Another huge tree fell in
such a way as to smash a porch and
cut the corner off of j one of the
hquses near the mill. , The house
was occupied but no one was v hurt
Two or three trees fell across' the
flume of which there is a section of
aew hundred feet above the) mill
and in three places below the mill
the flume was cut in the same way
m 4 . ....
xwo sneas, m tne vicinity - were
blown down, and the ' following
morning the dining hall where the
employes at the mill take their
meala caught fire and was burned
Along the Alsea road on the moun
tain beyond the mill, no less than a
dozen big trees fell, and had to be
cut out of . the highway. The Al
sea telephone line was smashed , in
two or three dozen places, and com
munication was not established un
til Monday evening. The work of
repairing the damage at the saw
mill is m progress and everything
will soon be in running order again.
During the stor nine big trees fell
in the vicinity of John Hydes house.

O. V. Hurt, whose xname has
been connected with the new reli
gious sect of late, left Sunday for
Portland on a business trip. It is
possible that from there he will go
East for a brief visit with two sis
ters and a brother.-and to look after
an estate in which be is interested.
In case of the latter visit Mr. Hurt
will be absent three or four weeks,
Concerning his connection with
the Holy Rollers, Mr. Hurt talked
freely the other day with a Times
writer. He said that he had read
most of the newspaper accounts' of
the late excitement:,' and . that all
the things printed especially in, San
Francisco papers were not true. "I
have no apologies to make for my
coxirse," he said, ' but I' do not
care to have attributed to me things
in wnicn t nave no part, I believe
all those who are followers of our
faith, are sincere and honest in their
belief. I have not so much faith
as have they, but I justify them in
their belief, and trust that since
their views are but slightlv in ad
vance of what has been the founda
tion of many new sects, they are
hot Unlike many, who have prece
ded them and are therefore not j us
tifiably the subject of contempt and
ridicule. They preach the faith of
John Wesleo. They , believe no
more than many another sect has
taught, the difference being that
other sects after gaining ground
and followers have begun to pander
to tne worldly. -:;,
Concerning the reports of things
that had transpired at the house
j-during the late . excitement, Mr.
Hurt said that nearly if hot all of
the things destroyed were valueless.
An old shot gunHhat ought to have
been destroyed long - before because
of its constant menace to the lad
who carried it. was recounted as
one of the articles that went ' into
the flames. ) Np carpets, according
to the statement of Mr. Hurt, were
burned. Most of the articles com
mitted to the flames, he said, were
rubbish and useless articles, ' such
as accumulate about all houses.
The sidewalks that were torn up,
he said, were not burned but were
stored away for future use. The
dog that was killed, was an imper
tinent little canine, on which sent-
nance of death, had been pronoun
ced many times before, and which
ought to -bave been -carried out.
Mr Hurt expressed regret that such
of his friends that had called at the
house, had not been admitted to see
him.'-, - ': -: ,'v: ,.
The burning of the articles was
done while Mr. Hurt was occupied
with other --matters. Brooks and
Creffield were the leaders in the de
livery of articles to the - flames.
It is apparent, from his conversa
tion, that somethings were burned
without Mr Hurt's knowledge, and
that he was not wholly aware of
all the purposes there was in thede-
structipn. In all things.' Mr. Hurt 1
is as ne was in lormer days, ' save
that he is an adherent of . the hew
faith, though less zealous than are
others in the movement, c His trio
East, if he goes, is partially at the
request of his brother and ; sisters,
who have : written him1 to come
When he retired from Kline's store
it was not the purpose of Mr Hurt
to resign. He expected to' r be ab
sent a lew days in attendance at
the meetings, but it was not ! his
purpose to permanently sever his
connection with the establishment.
About twenty members of the
sect are regularly at the Hurt house
now, . Brooks and Creffield are
there, and an enlargement of the
accomodations is in progress . It is
the plan to provide a comfortable
room for religious worship that will
attord ample accommodations.' The
time is spent in study of the Bible
and in waiting the opportunity to
go abroad and preach the . Word.
In time the sect hopes to build
churches for worship to which the
public may be bidden.
If he does not go East, Mr. Hurt
will return to Corvallis the latter
part of this week, . ,
