The wild scenes of the Pullman
football game last November were
repeated in the College . Armory
Thursday evening, when the career
of victory that the basket ball team,
from the University of Washington
has been making through Oregon
was suddenly stopped by a defeat
administered by the OAG men in a
game in which the record runs,
OAC 22; Washington, io. When
th Washingtonians reached Cor
vallls they had the scalps of the
Dallas College men at their belts
with a score of 22 to 16, and had
triumphed over the State -Normal
team with a record of 20 to 12.
Dallas bad beaten OAC 13 to 4, and
the horizon on which the OAC
men and the sympathizers looked
when the game began was all hung
with clouds, mourning and Cat
astrophe. It was a bold OAC fn
thusiast who could scent victory
or cherish hopes of it m the out
look, and when at the 'end of the
first half the record ran OAC, 10
Washington.' 5. and at the close of
the game OAC, 22, Washington,
19, which meant that the big Uni
versity in the "North had been
licked, there was a scene of pan
demonium in which' -ioo or 400
people waved umbrellas, unfurled
handkerchiefs, and yelled them
;There was a big crowd and ' in
terest throughout was at high ten
sion. . The game opened and for a
few minutes the play wavered back
and forth in the field, until Moores
finally captured the ball and threw
a tpretty field goal. There was a
wild yell, that was xepeated within
a minute when from : far a-field,
Moores again hurled the ball square
ly in the basket. This j made the
scores OAC, 4; Washington naught.
Seattle followed up the play with a
field goal, and Moores as quickly
sent the ball spinning for another
basket.- Washington then made a
loui lor one point and the score
stood, Oregon, six; Washington,
three. A brilliant field goal thrown
by Moores would have made Ore
gon's record eight but it failed to
count becaose Moores dribbled the
the ball: Then Cate put the .sphere
home ior another two points, and
Coates followed up for ' a . pretty
goal and rolled up Oregon's score
to 10. A minute before it'ended,
Washington made the final goalof
the half and the score was, Oregon,
10; Washington, five.'
In the second half. Moores open
ed up with a goal, and Seattle
quickly returned the compliment.
1 hen Swan threw another for Ore
gon and then anothef, and again
Washington countered with anoth
er, making tbe record 14 to 9.
Again Swan sent the sphere for
a basket, when big McDonald threw
two in rapid succession for Sea'tle,
which Swan ' followed up with one
more for'Oregon. making the score
18 to 13. By this.titne the excite
ment was intense and the tension
drew tighter when the giant Mc
Donald plunging through the Ore
gon men lifted the Seattle balance
to 15 by another goal. Oregon was
but three ahead now, and when
Swan slipped out of the arms of
a big guard and hurled the ball in
to another basket the roof ' of the
Armory was almost lifted by human
yells. 7 They were short lived
though for McDonald again plough
ed through for one and then an
other basket, and the score stood,
Oregon. 20; Warhington, 19. A
dispute then arose.over a goal each
thrown by Swan ; and McDonald,
and neither was ' allowed. There
were still five minutes of play, and
400 people ionged for the thing to
end. Here and there the ball flew,
now towards the ; Washington and
then the Oregon goal until finally
little Swan got it, and . with a
quick unerring aim. he sent it fly
ing into the last basket of the game,
and ended the anxiety of the hun
dreds of interested onlookers.
The game wis the most exciting
ever seen in the Armory. The Ore
gon men played beautiful team
work, and each was a star. Coates
played a dashing game, at guard,
and Steiwer in he - same position
laid it over his man. , The field
goals of Moores and Swan were
spectacular, and Cate and Stokes
played consistent and excellent ball.
. The next game at the Armory is
between OAC and U. of O., on the
26th inst. . ' n
The chief topic of conversation in
town now is the war in the Orient.
Every person seems to have an in
terest in the struggle, ' and as far
as expressions have been -heard the
sympathy and good will is nearly if
not all with Japan. In "every pub
lic place and resort the war is dis
cussed, and. news each day is awai
ted with absorbing interest. The
intelligence of the daring raid by
the Japanese torpedo boats on Port
Arthur, which resulted in the dis
abling of three Russian vessels with
out damage to the Japanese assail
ants elicited ftrahy an expression of
satisfaction. The act is commented
upon as cleverT daring and intelli
gent to an extreme degree. The
strange paradox in that Japan after
taking Port Arthur by assault from
China in the late war between Japan
end that nation, while now the
powerful fortress and its ample har
bor is in the hands of Russia as a
result of cunning and craft of diplo
macy, is a condition that is not lost
sight of. The comment . is that if
any. nation other than China had a
right to Port Arthur, it was Japan
with her honorable and triumphant
record in the struggle with the grea
ter nation. It was not Japan how
ever, but Russia that plucked the
plum, which she has since used as
a basis for acquiring still further
territory that is the ancient herita
ge of another people.
i Next to news from the scene offl
operations, the factsithat are sought
witn tne most intense interest, are
the comparative resources of ' the
two belligerents, and how they are
affected by the facts of where the
scene of hostilities is laid.- The
question of Tiow this" will affect the
ultimate outcome of the contest, is
what creates intense interest in the
figures. All know that the navy of
Japan is modern- throughout, and
that the little yellow man has the
advantage of a recent experience in
actual warfare on the sea. While
in actual numbers the fighting ships
of Russia are far more numerous,
the number1 off fighting machines
that she can actually throw into the
breach is not greatly superior to
what Japan can muster. Her sym
pathizers count on it that 'Japan is
.better prepared at the outset, and
will all the time manifest superior
intelligence in the conduct of .the
struggle, lu japan too, tnere is a
spirit of patriotism bordering on de
votion, for wihch her people will fight
with a bravery and desperation ap
proaching the sublime. Back of all
this too, all those who lean ' to the
side of Japan seem to believe ' that
the right is more on .the side of the
.n i 1 it. .. n
cific, and that to a certain extent
this will count for something as the
game of death and destruction proceeds.

And Benton Lewis and Clark Jour
nal Does What it Says.
T. F. Mosely, of the Lewis and
Clark Journal, was in the city dur
ing the week setting forth the at-tractive-features
of that interesting
magazine. Its publishers have
spared no pains to make it a fitting
representative of the Lews and
Clark Fair. It is probably the
finest periodical of its class pub
lished in the Northwest. Willis S.
Duniway is its editor and chief.
The Journal has a unique feature
in spreading information about dif
ferent localities, in that it carries as
standing advertisements short, suc
cinct descriptions of counties and
towns, giving in fifty and one hun-
dred words the salient features of a
place. The following notice is
given to QorvalHs and Benton:
'-Corvallis invites attention to her
education, scientific and industrial
institutions J she takes pride in her I
public buildings, city, county and j
state This is the seat of the Ore
gon Agricultural College. A place
of healthful moral atmosphere, pas
toral scenery and wholesome influ
ences. Situated at the head of the
Willamette, at the terminus of . the
West side division of the S. P. R
R.. at the junction of the C. & E'
R. R. it styles itself "The Gateway
to the Sea." It is a city of schools,
churches, newspapers, banks, mills,
a fine hotel, and. surrounded by a
prosperous rural district. " Corvallis
is the capital of Benton county, the
center of the matchless Willamette
Valley. The county is watered by
the Willamette and numerous monn-
tain Streams, the soil and climate
are adapted to general farming
dairying and orcharding, a stock
farmers paradise, where. clover and
v ch often produce 3 to 5 tons of
'lined hay per acre "
Thirty Corvallisites subscribed for
