tramp Who Tried
to Steal Unenvi
able Distinction- io:,
: It is said that tramps seldom
steal anything of value and a Cor
vallis incident of the past week will
go far toward establishing the im
pression. Friday evening a colored gentle
man made his appearance in Cor
vallis. He sought the nightwatch
for the purpose of securing lodging.
The officer subsequenlly sought
him, but both failed in their quest.
In the early afternoon of Saturday
Chief Lane encountered the ebony
hued individual and the latter wis
pleased at the meeting because the
officer could doubtless assist him in
securing a hall or church in which
to deliver a few sermons. "I am a.
nrnister" said the stranger, "but
recently I met with an unplasant
experience in King's Valley, ' I
h ope to be accorded a better recep
tion in Corvallis." , At the moment
the Kings Valley episode of the
colored minister and stale eggs did
not occur to the officer, who remar
ked that the gentleman's attire was
not strikingly ministerial in style
and cut. The fellow was in fact
dressed as a tramp, but he explai
ned that his be t suit had been next
to ruined by the eggs which had
been broken upon his person at
Kings Valley, and that since he in
tended to be in Eugene in a short
time he had forwarded his clothing
to that place to be cleaned. "When
a person has had about three hun
dred eggs thrown at him," he con
tinued his "clothes are not likely to
be presentable in public." The
last remark in.the mind of the offi
cer, convicted r the stranger,- who
had no learned sufficiently of the
Kings Valley affair to , enable him
to successfully pose as. the victim
thereof., IJo such number of eggs
had been thrown. Chief Lane at
once ordered him out of town. The
negro wanted to present testimoni
als of his character and calling, but
the officer was obdurate, and the
impious fraud succumbed to what
he -deemed the inevitable.' La'eriu
the day the negro was seen with a
number of other tramps in the
vicinity of the Bryant school house
a few miles north of town. . It? has
since developed that the negro cal
led upon several local ministers
and if he was not admitted into fnll
fellowship, was in some - instances
admitted to the dining room.
