WITH St ALE
Colored Preacher Assailed in Kings
".-Valley Church Happened at :
. Evening Service.
While sitting in the pulpit at an
evening church service in Kings
Valley last Sunday, Rev. Vernon,
a colored prear-her was made the
target for a volley of stale eggs
thrown through the window by
parties on the outside of the build
ing. Though several eggs were
thrown, none of them took effect on
the person of the minister, to - be
accounted for perhaps, by the fact
that with a quick movernent, Rev.
Vernon at the s beginning of the
bombardment, j um ped behind the
church organ behind which he
stooped in such a manner as to be
out of the range of the egg throw
ers. The general reason assigned
tor the act. varies according to the
statements in circulation with refer
ence to the affair. The popular
supposition is that hoodlums, led on
by a spiritof bravado rather than
downright meanness are responsi
ble for the affair, while others say
that the egg fusilade is rather an
expression of hostility to the black
race, the same as is often made man
ifest in various parts of lhe country
without reference to location or
section.

The affair happened . at the old
Evangelical church, located near
the home of Willard Price, ' a mile
and a quarter south , of. the Kings
Valley store. Rev S.troup is "regu
lar pastor of tbe , church, and had
been conducting revival meetings
there for a couple of j weeks. To
assist him in the meetings, Rev.
Strout had brought Rev Vernon from
Portland, where the latterserves an
and PV. j:ij -
xa ucauiucu tt3 ail cuium, aiiivcic
and godly man, and is considered a
very good pulpit otator. He had
preached at many of thej meetings
in the valley, but no demonstration
of hostility to him had been made
on any former occasion. There is
a story to the effect that Rev Stoup
was advised not to bring the colored
mkn to his assistance, becausethat
course might make trouble,but this
cannot be con6rmed. In. any event,
the colored minister was .on the
scene, and. had to the best of his
abili-y assisted in the meetings, the
net result of which are said to have
been two conversions.

long odds the most seasoned players
a line has been selected as follows:

it is arbitrary, but from a study of the
work of the men this would seem tq
to be a strong team for tha North

Ten million Chinook salmon eggs
passed through Corvailis yesterday on
the way to the hatchery on the Ya
qulna river, which is do Colonel F. J.
Parker's place near. Toledo. They
will be batched there and the young
salmon will then be planted In the Ta-
quina river., The eggs ame from the
hatchery on Fraser river, British Co
lumbia. Several million Chinook sal-
mon eggs are now being distributed
among the hatcheries on different Or
egon etre&ms under the supervision
of the State Fish and Game Commis
sion. . - :
The dock killers over the Willa-
mette,.who killed 135 in a day's shoot
ing recently, shot again last Tuesday,
and smashed their former record. The
ducks are baited daily, and the hunters-shoot
about twice per week.
There are five small lakes lor the vi
cinity and eaeh is generously batted
with wheat, The plan; works so well
that in last Tuesday's shoot the seven
hunters "engaged ; killed 323 'ducks.
The record of each bunter Is as fol
lows: L. G. Lewellingr49; W. J. Hul
burt, 40; Rollo and Loyd Hulburt and
Fat Turner, 146; A. B. Wescot, 49; O.
M. Hulburt, 39. No shooting is alowed
at the lakes before sunrise nor after
sundown. The hunters who bait the
lakes employ a watchman to . patrol
the vicinity. , - . -
At the time the eggs were thrown
Rev. Stroup was preaching . while
Rev. Vernon occupied a seat in the
pulpit close beside the speaker.
There was a large audience, and
the sermou was about half finished.
Suddenly there was a crash of glass
at one side of the building, not far
from the pulpit. Every eye turn
ed quickly in that direction, includ
ing those of the two ministers in the
pulpit. What people saw was that
a portion of the window had been
shattered in pieces, with a board,
wielded from the outside. The next
instant they saw the flash of a stale
egg as it passed in the window and
shot straight towards the colored
preacher. Thea another and an
other sailed toward Rev. Vernoa,
who quickly took in the situation,
and with a frantic movement reach-
Notice is hereby given that

ggs thrown, accounts differ. Some
say there were three, and others j
say that there were nve. : All agree
that none of the fruit struck , the
minister, - though some of thecn
barely missed him.

THROWERS ESCAPED, UNSEEN
While the throwing was in prog
ress, the audience sat aumotouna-
ed. Indeed, the whole proceeding
was over, and the assailants gone,
before it was possible for those pres ent
to get a full realization of what
was going on. When the throw
ing stopped, the service ' was delay
ed a few moments to give opportun
ity to clear, away the remains of the
eggs. The latter are said to have
been terribly, stale and the oder
ter the debris . had Been cleared J
iaway, Revi Stroup resumed his ser
mon, and finally concluded the ser
vice as though nothing had hap
pened. Several parties, after , the
eggs had been thrown, left the au
dience and wentout to investigate,
but they were unable to find clue or
explanation of the momentous ques:
tion of who did it. x
: Since it happened, the affair has
been the sole topic of discussion in
the Valley. Residents there are as
peaceable and law-abiding as any
people on earth, and they univer
sally regret that violence of the sort
should have been manifest at a
church service. The report is that a
reward of $250 has been offered for
the apprehension of the parties,-but
cannot be confirmed. Persons from
the vicinity were in town yesterday
to enlist the authorities in the case;
