In the Late Election Official Canvass
Wednesday State Results,
The late election has passed into
history, and the period of quiet that
always follows such contests is now
on. In the state, local option car
ried by a majority of 5.000 and the
primary election law ana state prin
ter amendment to the constitution
were adopted by still larger majori
ties. The election ot the republi
can state ticket by increased major '
ities together with the return of
Williamson and Hermann to con
gress are also results of the ballot
battle- Hermann's majority -.of a
bout 2,300 last year is increased
this time to something less than
The legislative complexion is but
slightly changed as a consequence
of the shake up, the result being a
still further increase of the republi
can majority. According to the
latest returns, there will be six dem
ocratic and 24 republican senators,
and ten democratic and 50 republi
can members of the lower house.
Judge James Hamilton is elected
judge in the Second judicial dis
trict by a majority ot about 1,500
having carried every county in the
district, each of which is republican.
In the Third judical district, Bur
nett, republican, and William Gal
loway, democrat, are elected circuit
judges, the latter having defeated
B L. Eddy, formerly of Corvallis.
and Judge Burnett having defeated
Judge Boise, the veteran jurist.
The official count of Benton was
made Wednesday. Justice Holgate,

son, of Fairmount precinct, with
the countv clerk made the official
canvas. The tally sheets of e: ch
precinct were recounted, but no
change in figures resulted from the

rious candidates, together with
those for the initiative measures,
are as follows: Local option, 380;

Rickard. for commissioner, 45;
Jones, for surveyor, 90; Wilkins,
for coroner, 108. Thejull returns

In Corvallis, the election was one
of the quietest that has been held
in years. A considerable crowd
was present on the street during the
day, but at the polling places there
was less buttonholing than is usu
ally seen. On account of the polls
being kept open an hour later than
formerlv, the result in the Corvallis
precincts -was correspondingly de
layed, but this was atoned tor by
the fact that there are now tele
phone connections with every pre
cinct, except Willamette, and the
result on most of the candidates was
known within a short time after
midnight. The clerkship remain
ed in doubt, however, until the
counts were finished at Philomath
and in Corvallis, precinct No. 1,
where the canvass was not complet
ed nntil about six o'clock in the
In the Corvallis precinct but few
straight tickets were voted. In one
of the largest precincts but eight
tickets without scratch were cast.
The scratching was as liberal on
one side as the other, apparently,
all voters on the county officers
standing almost entirely for the
man, their acquaintanceship or
friendship for him, rather than for
his political affiliations.

Escaped the Asylnm and Traveled
'- Afoot to torvallis Her Condition.
A tedious journey of thirty odd
miles on foot, with nothing but a
few strawberries to eat, was an act
Tuesday by Attie Bray, one of the
Holy Roller girls, recently sent
from Corvallis to the insane asylum.
The trip was from the asylum farm
to Corvallis and the distance was
covered between four in the morn
ing and seven in the evening. 'Con
sidering that Miss Bray is a frail
young woman, suffering with a
religious mania, the feat takes on
the character of the unusual. She
managed to escape from the attend
ants at the asylum farm about four
o'clock in the morning, and at once
started for Corvallis. How many
of the roads she traveled, she was
unacquainted with is . not known,
but she managed -to thread
them with, sufficient certainty to
reach the Albany bridge " at two
o'clock in the afternoon. Passing
over it, she found a secluded spot
on this side, and there rested until
four o'clock, after which she " re
sumed her journey. A few minutes
after seven o'clock she passed
through Corvallis and made her
way to the home of Victor Hurt,
south of Mary's river. -There1 she
was given food and kindly treated,
and her arrival reported to the auth
orities. . x
Miss Bray is apparently not im
proved in mental condition. When
taken to the sheriff's office, pend
ing the return to Salem, she re
fused to be seated in a chair; but
insisted, while she waited, in sit
ting on the linoleum with which the
floor is covered. -She was asked to
sit on a chair but persistently re
fused to do so. Then a cushion
was offered her, but this too, she
At the home of J. D. Wells,
where she was taken to wait the
arrival of an asylum attendant, she
manifested the same stolid disre
gard for the conveniences that
sane people are wont to utilize. She
sat on the floor with her head bow
ed. Asked by Mrs. Wells if she
was sick, Miss Bray replied in the
negative, adding that she was only
engaged in prayer, During most
of the hour or two that she was at
the house, she maintained this at
titude. When food was offered her
at the dinner hour, she refused it.
She started for Salem in charge of
an asylum attendant early in- the
afternoon of Wednesday.
The case, though not in any
sense unlike nearly all the-others of
the sect, is deplorable. Miss Bray
is a graduate of the Corvallis pub
lic schools, and is of estimable
character and amiable disposition.
Her gentle traits always endeared
her to those with whom she came
in contact. Her victimization by
the despicable teachings of the vil-
lian Creffield is a condition that ev
ery respectable citizen would like
to see avenged.
BURIED A LITTLE ONE.
Death in the Cooper Home, North
Town Father in Montana.
The three weeks' old infant in
the home ot Mr. and Mrs. Grant
Cooper who reside near the W. G.
Davis place, north of town, was
buried in Odd Fellows cemetery
Thursday. The little one died
Wednesday from the effects pi a
violent attack of whooping cough
The funeral occurred- from the
home at 10 o'clock Thursday morn
ing, and was conducted by Rev.
Frank L. Moore. The father was
absent from home during the illness
and death of the babe,- and at last
accounts, the news had not reached
him. He is shearing sheep at an
isolated camp in Montana, and it
was impossible to communicate
with him in time for him to attend
the funeral. " In the same family a
year or two ago, one of the chil"
dren was burned to death. It
j played too near a hot stove, the
clothing took fire, and the little one
ran out in the yard, and was so
burned that it subsequently died in

tensively in the mercantile business.
He is a man of extensive means

Cady, the other partner in the new

The members of - the retiring

opportunity elsewhere, and it is
understood that the sale of the

THEY WANT CREFFIELD.
More Reward for Him His Capture
Would Net Four Hundred Dollars.
-Renewed interest has been
awakened in, the whereabouts of
Creffield, the bogus apostle. A
week or two ago, a certain report
to which some credence , was at
tached, seemed to indicate that the
man wanted was in ' hiding at a
certain point in the Northwest,
and that a diligent effort might re
sult in his discovery. The reward
offered is so small as to be insuffi
cient to induce detectives and oth
ers to spend time and means in a
search that in the end might turn
out to be fruitless. With a number
of his victims in the asylum for the
insane, and with a growing belief
that Creffield continues in commu
nication with some of his Corvallis
followers, a general desire is mani
fest for the further pursuit and
possible capture of the fugitive.
Those in position to know, say
that the very success Creffield has
in eluding the officers has an un
fortunate effect upon the unbalanc
ed minds of the members of his
sect. On this- account, and for
other reasons, an ehort to increase
the reward, has resulted in raising
the sum to $400, which will go to
the person or persons who bring
the guilty man to justice. .Of the
amount, $100 is offered in Multno
mah county, an additional $100
has been in Sheriff Burnett's hands
ever since Creffield -escaped from
Corvallis, and these sums have
been further increased by another
$100 raised in subscription in Cor
vallis, and $100 appropriated for
the purpose by the county court of
Benton.-- The order for the latter
amount was made at', last week's
session. The order recounts that
Creffield is a criminal out of the
ordinary that at large, he is a
menace to the peace and happiness
of the community, Jthat six of his
followers have been committed to
the insane asylum from Benton
county, and that the sum of $100
be placed in the hands of the sher
iff to be paid for the arrest and
conviction , of the said Creffield.
