A sewing machine considerably
: out of. the ordinary was taken to
. Dilly a few, days ago for repairs.
' A motor attachment is the thing
which is new here.Power for operating
the sewing -machine is provided by a
heavy clock spring which is wound up
by means of a " lever." A friction
: brake, adjusted by a screw regulated
the speed of the machine or stops it
entirely. A temporary stoppage of
the machine to shift the work In
band or other purpose, Is effected by
pressing a pedal with the foot. Many
- people have with much interest,
watched the machine in operation
and it would seem to be just : the
, thing. It was brought to Oregon
: from Nebraska a short time ago by
a family . named Robinson, - who
bought land not far from Philomath.
In transit the legs of the machine
.were broken eff and it was , brought

During trie ; latter part of last
week, Harvey Martin was on trial .In
the U. S. court, Portland, for the mur
der, of U. S. Grant a short time ago at
the old government ford on the Silerz
river. Riley Logan Is jointly accused
with Martin. Both accused as
well as the murdered man, as Is gen
erally known, are Indians, and other
circumstances of the tragedy have al
ready been given in "Tbe Times." The
first news of the affiir indicated that
Martin was the principal, but the evi
dence brought out at tbe trial showed
that Martin took a smaller part In tbe
killing than was supposed. The jury
before which he was tried came to an
agreement and on Monday last re
turned a verdict of manslaughter a
gainst Martin. W. S. McFadden, of
Oorvalli", defended Martin and many
who followed the evidence believed
tbe Indian would be cleared. It is un
derstood that an effort will be made
for a new trial. Logan's case was to
have been called when Mai tin's trial
was completed; ' . ) .

How Matters : Stand Another Coun
cil Meeting to be Held.
The city council at a meeting
Friday night passed the Porter
street lighting ordinance - over - the
mayor's veto. The vote was, ayes,
Rose, Porter, Cameron. Taylor,
Hodes,1 Henkle; nays, ' Crees; ab
sent, Avery, Colbert- The ordin
ance as passed over the Ve'o pro
vides for the city to pay the Elec
tric Light Company $ 6 for arcs and
$1.41 for incandescents for a per
iod of 10 years. The Jones bid
proposed for the city to pay $5 for
arcs and $ 1.35 - for incandescents.
It has since turned out, however,
that the councilmen,- at the time
they turned down the veto, had a
private agreement with Mr. Porter's
light company to the effect that .the
latter was to come down to ' the
Jones bid of - $5 4 for V arcs and
$1.35 for incandescents. It seems
that shortly . before the - meeting.
Mr. Porter, went to the councilmen
and proposed to meet the Jones
figures, provided ; the councilmen
would assure him that he should
have the contract.This a number of
the councilmen pledged themselves
to do, and Mr. Porter in turn pledg
ed them that he would supply lights
at the Jones prices. After advis
ing with City Attorney Ya' es as to
the legal status of things, the coun
cilmen say they believed that by
passing the $6 ordinance over the
veto, a contract could be signed
providing for $5 arcs. With that
understanding, they passed the
Porter ordinance over the veto.
and shortly thereafter adjourned.
After adjournment. . however, a
number of'the councilmen. learning
that only a contract providing for
$6 arcs and $1.41 . incandescents
would be legally signed by the po ;
lice judge in short having learned
that under the ordinance passed,
they could not without further
legislation legally make a contract
for the lights at the lower figures,"
they privately instructed the1 police
judge not to . sign the contract.
Accordingly, at the, request or the
council a special council meeting
has been called for next Friday
night, at which time action is to be
taken by which " the ordinance
passed over the veto can be chang
ed to conform to the objections of
the veto, and also to straighten out
the tangle, as it novAexists.
- There is a further explanation of
the action of the council in turning
down the veto'.. Wheu the agree
ment was reached between the
councilmenand Mr. Porter that tbe
latter was to have the contract if he
would meet the Jones figures, some
of the councilmen wanted'to atonce
amend he ordinance so as to incorpo
rate the Jo -es figures, but Mr .Porter
made objection to this plan, because
it might give a chance for another
opening of matters, a possible
chance for another bid and possibly
another veto. On being; assured
that the thing . could : be legalized
afterward,' they all - voted for the
ordinance to pass over the veto. ex-,
cept Councilman Crees, who insis
that the Jones figures should be in-,
serted - before the ordinance be
- There is another element in the
situation that is not uninteresting .
Some of the councilmen say . the
Jones! people want to, make a lower
bid. But the situation is such that
the consideration of a lower bid is
almost impossible. . Some, of the
councilmen are pledged to accep
tance of the Porter contract at the
former Jones figures, and are not in
position to consider another bid.
Furthermore, the action taken . has
been such thstven a veto could
not provide for the admission of a
lower bid. This is why: As the
! matter now stands the only , con
tract that the police judge is author
ized to sign provides that - the city
shall pay six dollars for arcs' and
$1.41 for incandescents. The only
wny to change" the. present ordinan
ce is by the adoption of another or
dinance, either amending the pres
ent one by substitution of $5 arcs
and $1.35 incandescents, or- by
repealing the present ordinance and
passage ofanothef one providing for
the lower rates, li the plan of ad
opting an amendment merely chan
ging the figures should be followed,
and it should be) desired to veto the
new act for the admission of a lower
bid, the effort of the veto would be
merely to cut out the amendment
and leave the present $6 ordinance
in effect. That is to , say, a " veto
would merely kill . the- amendment
and leave - matters as they now
stand, which would be exactly con
trary in ; effect to- that which
would : be desired. If, on : the
other hand , the course of
repealing the present ordinance
and enactment of" a new one were
resorted to the effect of a veto would
be exactly the same. A veto, made
for the purpose of admitting a low
er bid would not only kill ; the new
$5 ordinance, but would also . kill
the repealing clause, and leave the
present 6 ordinance in full force
and effect. The situation Is a cur
j iousone,-in that it shows the fine
strategy that ' was employed, and
for what reason it was desired that
the councilmen should be induced
to pass the $6 ordinance over the
THEY ARE GONE.
This Time for Good Brooks and Cref
field Told to Depart. -
Creffield and Brooks, prophets of
what las come to , be called : the
Holy Roller sect, have gone from
CorvallK Their departure this
time is for good and aye. It tran
spired as a result of the notice giv?
en the men by Mr Hurt that it
was best for them to go away. The
notice was not of sensational char-
acter, nor was the going fruited
with spectacular incidents as has
been repirted. While on ? a late
vjsit to Portland. Mr. Hurt wrote
home, saying that on account of
the feeliog that had 'been incited
as a result of the unusual things
done in the late upheaval, it was
better that there should be a part
ing of the ways. Mr. Hurt arrived
home last Thursday, the day after
the letter reached Corvauie, Ha
found Brooks and Creffield ready to
leave, and about two ' o'clock that
afternoon, the start of the prophets
into new fields was made. One of
the men was taken away in a bug
gy, and the other traveled alone.
Neither will return . to abide at the
Hurt home, that alternative being
fully understood by both men.
Besides the departure of Creffield
and Brooks, all tbe other followers
of the sect save ordinary visitors at
the home have taken their depar
ture. ; The incident seems to indi
cate a return in general of all inter
ested td normal conditions, and to
mark the end of ,whaty furnished a
theme of general interest for several
days in the late past. The friends
of Mr. Hnrt and of the family are
glad that Creffield and Brooks are
gone, for to the latter and their
power to influence others was due
whatever there was in the late mat
ter that supplied the public with
thiDgs to talk about.
