McFadden to Corvallis since tbe hear

tbe first cases on record In which the
teotimeat cf a community was en
tirely with one side, a fact due largely
In this Instance to the well known
Integrity of Mr. McFadden. which
made It Impossible for a people to be
made believe that charge put forth
by Tillotson. The jury, It will be re
membered, was oat but five minutes.
Two or three minutes after retiring, a
ur3t of applause in tee jury room
was beard In the court chamber,
which told signficantly that there was
an Immediate agreement, and that the
jurors were enthusiastic in a desire
for the acquittal ot the defendant. All
the testimony except that of Tillotson
himself, was adverse to the claims of
tbe prosecution, leaving no doubt in
tbe minds ot all present that Mr. Mc
Faddrfn was entirely Innocent of the
