CORVALLIS, OR JULY 15, J905.
THERE ARE OTHERS.
Senator Mitchell of Oregon is not
alone in his disgrace. On the
other side of the continent there is
a man more notable who can grieve
with the senator in his grief and
sympathize keenly with him in his
Senator Chauncey M. Depew of
chief after dinner speaker of the age
widely popular socially for a genera
tion and an all round athlete in rail
roading, politics and business has
even a greater stigma on his name
than has the melancholly senator
from Oregon. Depew who once
had a strong vote in the national
republican convention for the pres
idency, whose name for decades has
been as much mentioned flattering
ly in the newspapers as that of any
other man . who has held a position
in the public eye attained by few
men, is apparently guilty of trans
actions far more shady than that
of which Senator Mitchell has been
found guilty. Though not a law
yer, save that long years ago he was
admitted to the bar, he has for
years been drawing a salary of
$20,000 a year as attorney for the
Equitable Assurance Society,
which society has been the pecul
iar and especial prey of high-toned
pirates for a long time. To this is
added questionable transactions of
the Depew Land Company in which
large sums of the Equitable's mon
ey seems to have been squandered,
the expose of which has set Yale
College graduates to engage in a
movement to force Senator Depew
out of the Board of control of that
institution. Though without a
conviction in the courts and per
haps beyond reach of it, Depew at
theage of 73 falls from a pedestal of
lofty and respectable repute to the
level of an ordinary grafter, over
whelmed with contumely, loaded
with shame and jeered at by the
The story of Depew, that of the
notorious Judge Hooker of New
York, the exposure of swindles in
the cotton bureau in the department
of Agriculture, the revelations of
the packing house robberies and
other known and unknown swind
les by prominent figures among
men is all interesting reading here
in Oregon, in that it is evidence
that we are not the only sinners
and that our own notorious John
H. is not the only grand old fraud.
COMMITTEE WANTS INFORMATION.
As to who has Paid for Sewers
JShortage Nearly Two Thousand.
Those who have paid the police
judge for lateral sewers construct
ed in Corvallis are requested to
notify the finance committee of the
council, consisting Of P. Avery,
George Lilly and W. G. Emery.
Such as have receipts are request
ed to show them to the committee,
so that it can be definitely ascer
tained which of the laterals have
and which have not been paid tor
by the property owner. Until this
point is settled, by the committee
which is now working on the Gref
foz books, the true amount of the.
shortage cannot be fixed. The
figure now stands at$i,875. The
sum that has been turned over to
the treasurer, is $9,139. If the
committee has now the correct
facts as to what sewers have been
paid for,' the sum turned over
should have been $11,014. The
latter is about the sum if no inter
est has been collected. If interest
was collected the figures may be
As far as the committee can de
termine, the shortage is confined
entirely to sewer funds. The city
paid with warrants for the sewers,
and entrusted the collection to the
police judge. Instead of paying all
. amounts so received over to the
treasurer, some of them seem to
have been withheld, and it is tfius
the shortage occurs. All the fines,
and all the licenses seem to have
been regularly and faithfully turn
ed over to the treasurer. As soon
as the committee can communicate
with all who have bad lateral sew
ers built, the whole question will
be accurately settled and the report
be ready for the council
THEIR LONG MARCH.
Over Five Hundred Miles They are
ten Years old and Upwards.
A novel feature of life was pre
sented Wednesday and Thursday in
the visit to Corvallis of the Congre
gational Cadet Corps from Eureka,
California. The corps comprises
67 boys from 10 to 19 years of age.
The lads have marched every step
of the way from Eureka to Corval
lis, a distance of 413 miles, and ex
pect to continue the journey afoot
to Portland, by which an additional
98 miles will be covered. They
have been a month on the way, and
are to reach their destination by the
20th, which is Humboldt day at
the Fair. Their arrival in the Ex
position City will be at 10 o'clock
in the morning, and they will be
met by 200 people of Eureka and
be escorted to their camp site on
the Fair grounds where they are
to rendezvous for eight days. After
that they return to Eureka by
In Corvallis, the lads were gen
erally admired for the good Amer
ican grit they manifest in their long
march. They were neatly uniform
ed in blue shirt, Khaki trousers,
leggings and canvas hat, and pre
sented a comely appearance. One
youngster was but 10 years of age
and several others were but little
more. They had. no trouble what
ever in making 20 miles a day if oc
casion required, was the statement
of Captain Emery, U. S. A., in
cnarge ot tne corps. 1 ne average
march was however, much less,
netting between 13 or 14 miles per
day. There were d;versions on the
trip with hunting and fishing in the
mountains through several chains
of which the boys passed. In the
entire month when Corvallis was
reached, there had not been a single
case of sickness in the camp.
The corps camped on Third
street in the rear of the steam
laundry. They are well provided
m the way of camp outfit, two
wagons doing duty for their bag
gage and commissary. Thursday
at noon they gave an exhibition
drill on Main street, going through
military maneuvers with creditable
precision. The same afternoon
they played a game of baseball with
Corvallis lads, and got gracefully
skinned, In the evening they gave
an entertainment in the Opera
House, which was' witnessed wifi
much satisfaction by a good au
dience. The proceeds went to de
fray as far as it would, the current
expenses of the little travelers
The account, is that .these boys
never swear, that they do not use
tobacco in any form, and they are
universally kind and considerate of
each other, and that their manli
ness is not only manifest while on
the march but in the bivouac. Af
ter a two days sojourn at Corvallis
they broke camp early yesterday
morning, and left for the north
The boys doubtless will, as they
ought to, command much attention
when they reach Portland. Their
officers are, Clark L,. Emory, U. S.
A., captain; Joe Moore, 1st lieuten
ant: Wallace Mulland,- 2nd lieuten
ant; Fred Brown, seargent.

To Corvallis And Things Seen En
route Some Observations.
Mrs. M. D. Lowe, now on a vis
it to her son, J. C. Lowe, was ask
ed by the Times for her impres
sions of Oregon. Below is a brief
article contributed by her. Mrs.
Lowe is a member of the Eastern
Star, the W. C. T. U. and oft he
M. E. church South, and during
her stay at Hotel Corvallis is not by
any means without good friends.
"Through Oklahoma," says Mrs
Lowe. ' 'the eye is relieved by green j
growing corn, harvested wheat and
oats and new mown, hay until
Western Kansas is reached. There
it is a desert, stretching miles and
miles where nothing living is seen,
beast, bird nor insect. Colorado
Springs is indeed a glorious change
villages, towns and cities ot enter
prise are passed, with much scen
ery indescribably grand, on either
side, many miles of which, through
the Rockies, there is only room for
the train to pass. Utah and Idaho
presented little to the tourist's eye.
Oregon grew and grew in magnific
ence and grandeur as on we sped un
til "Watch Tacoma grow" seemed
the pass word. 'See Oregon grow'
is what it seemed to us from the
time we entered the state until we
reached Portland, feeling that city
was full grown, wideawake and
duly sober, yes, sober to her best
interests. The whole atmosphere
is impregnated with the perfume of
"Speaking of Corvallis, here the
college, the schools, the hotel and
the churches bespeak much for the
enterprise of your people, and tell
the story of their character. From
my window in my hotel the move
ments of busy men and woman
passing hither and thither, tell the
story of 'thrift and enterprise. The
flowers, the fruit, the freedom with
which the owners use them, give
the visitor from less favored climes
the heartiest welcome and a lofty
estimate of this spot. , The cordial
ity of the people, the mild climate,
the exhilaiiting sea breeze, the
massive shade trees, offering pro
tection from sunshine and rain, all
these make the visitor loth to leave
"To my mind, one of the most
creditable establishments is Hotel
Corvallis. For a country town, it
fis a caravansary with its magni
ficent service, to be proud of, and
one that brings your town into
most favorable notice, not only at
home but abroad."

Chicken stealing has been in
vogue over in Linn county and the
sequel to it Wednesday evening was
a shooting in which a thief got a
dozen buck shot. The shooting
transpired on the premises of Mr.
Bullis, half a mile west of the Oak
ville church and about six miles
from Corvallis. A sick horse kept
Mr. Bullis up till a late hour. For
a month, the- nocturnal disappear
ance of chickens from various
farms has kept the neighborhood
on the alert. The click of the latch
to tne chicken.; house door attract
ed Mr . Bullish attention while he
watched with hfshorse about mid
night. It was loon apparent that
ajthief Jwas at work. With a
gun in hand, Mr. Bullis waited his
opportunity, and fired. A second
shot brought a yell of pain from
the intruder as he 7 fled from the
place and disappeared in the brush
near by. Thus the incident ended,
and thus one thief got dose- that
will cure him of his tf ouble, tem
porarily at least.
