Ttotjeffersonians ot Decision From
One Judge Third Debate for
- Cup. t
The Amicitians are winners of
the third debate in the series for
the Gatch cup, held in College
chapel Friday night. -. The ques
tion was, "Resolved that the Tend
ency of trades unions is not detri
mental to the government of the
United States." The Jefferson
ian literary society had the affirm
ative and the Amicitians the nega
tive. The Jeffersonians urged that
the trades unions had lifted the
wage scale and bettered the con
dition, not only of the actual mem
bership in the unions, but of the
non-union men as well.
The Amicitians from ttie nega
tive standpoint urged that the
tendency of the unions is to "make
their interests paramount to the in
terests of all other classes of people
and that such an attitude is hostile
to the best interest of the commun
ity. The negative also insisted
that bloodshed always attends
strikes, that strikes are often with
out just cause, arid that this is a
detrimental .feature. The affirm
ative denied this, and went ( exten
sively into the causes and condi
. tions of various strikes to prove the
contrary. The question was close
ly contested, one judge rendering
a decision for the affirmative and
two for the negative. The judges
were B. W. Johnson, Prof.. Knise
ly and Mrs. Skelton. -
The fourth debate in the series
occurs Friday night, and is be
tweerrthe Feronians and the Utop
iansl The Feronians are the pres
ent holders of the cup. The ques
tion is, "Resolved that inter-collegiate
athletics do more good than
harm." The Feronians have the
. To Whom it May Concern.
In putting up'the telephone lines
which are becoming so numerous
along our public highways it is the
custom to use trees instead of plac
ing poles wherever this is conven
ient and we find that where - this
has been done that the branches,
whether the tree is in the road or
"across the fence in someone's field,
; are throne and left in the road; It
would be a small matter for each
one who has been helping in this
work to clear his share of it away
and it is hereby requested that the
brush piled up along the public
highway be removed by the persons
who placed it there, as it is a nui
sance during, road working time
' and would create Unnecessary, work
' and therefore unnecessary expense.

Logan Hays Goes to Portland to Ac
cept Position in Banking
On the 15th inst, - Logan Hays
of this city is to go to Portland,
to become assistant cashier of the
Oregon Savings Bank, one of the
big banking institutions of "Port-
land. His position as manager of
the Western Union 1 elegraph Co
pany m this city goes to Er
Miller. ' The question of wh
become agent of Wells Far,
Company has not yet been defer
mined. Mr. Hays resignation is
to take effect on the fifteenth inst
is in the hands of the compact,
and the selection of a successor will
be settled shortly. The news of
the coming changes "created much
surprise about town when announc
ed Monday morning. Last Satur
day Mrr Hays completed his sev
enteenth consecutive year in charge
of the local Western Union and
Wells Fargo office. Seventeen
years is more than half the life" of
a generation of the human family
and to have served so long in a
single position is in itself a living
testimonial of the good service that
has been rendered. Many friends
in Corvallis regret Mr. Hays' de
parture, but are glad of the "Op
portunities that fall to him in the
larger field. For the present his
mother will -remain in Corvallis,
but later she expeets to join Mr.
Hays in Portland.
THE OLD AND THE NEW.
One Recalls ihe Other A5now Storm
and a Death Old Times.
A handsome new awning at
Huston's hardware store recalls
the last awning that occupied a po
sition in front of the same building
and of the manner of its going. It
was in the last days of i893,"about
Christmas time. All natnre ' was
overspread with a heavy snowfall,
Rev. W. T. Ligon, a talented
young preacher, was pastor of the
M. E. church South, and at the
time in question, stood on the side
walk under an old wooden awning
over the door of the. Huston build
ing. Without warning, the awn
ing collapsed under the heavy
weight of the snow, and Rev. Lig
on was buried under the debris.
The loud crash attracted attention
and help was immediate! The vict
im was extricated from the r uinS
and carried across the street to the
Hemphill house, where everything
possible to save was done, but with
out avail. Young ' Mr. Logan
died of his injuries shortly after
ward, and his remains were shipped
hast to his home in the South for
interment. . The awning that after
a dozen years takes the place of
the old one is a canvas affair, such
only as ought to have place on the
main thoroughfare of the town.
