Hooligan, of the Moral Welfare

high! The wonder is how long the

THINGS THEY DO.
TROUBLE FOR THEM.
Moral Welfare Club Officers
More Cases Brought
Hooligan was Jailed.
More trouble has befallen the offi
cers of the Corvallis Social and
Athletic Club. Hooligan had to
spend the night in "the Yamhill
county jail Thursday night, and as
this is written is stared in the face
by more jail doors, complaints;
bonds, bail and prosecuting attor
neys. He is the vice president,
and after that ; first trial in which
he was sentenced tc pay a fine of
$300 or spend three months in jail,
he left Corvallis and went to In
dependence. Corvallis authorities
found him there and left him . re
main undisturbed on tne promise
that he would not attempt to go
away. Thursday, he bought a
ticket for Portland and boarded the
train, only to te pounced upon by
the sheriff of Yamhill, when the
train pulled into McMinnville.
There he was thrown into jail and
so held until brought to Corvallis
by Officer Wells yesterday. He
is charged with violation of the lo
cal option law on three counts, and
wanted bonds in the sum of $1200.
The prospect was at the Times
press hour that no bail . would be
Vice-president Hooligan is not
the only officer of the club that has
trouble. Mike Kline is a defend
ant under three new indictments,
all for disposing of liquor to mem
bers of the "Moral Welfare Club.'jj
His bond for each is $400, so that
the aggregate of the bonds he has
given, including the original case,
is $1,600. His sureties are James
Horning and P. A. Kline. The
trial of the new cases is set for Mon
day, Sept. 25th.
Jack Milne, the barkeeper at
the club, is a defendant on two
charges of disposing of liquor. His
bond for each offense is $400 and
That Others wot not of Many East
erners Looking Through
Many Eastern people are being
shown over Benton county now by
local real estate agents. One firm
had no less than 10 persons from
east of the Rockies, looking over
farms in Benton during last Wed
nesday. The expense of this firm
in the past 30 days has been more
than $200, nearly all of which was
expended in showing prospective
settlers through the county. Some
people think all real estate agents
ought to be hung. If this were
done, who would perform the ex
pensive and highly beneficial ser
vice to Benton that is now rendered
by these men whose . good money is
liberally spent every day in con
vincing tourists from other parts
that this is a good section in which
to pitch a tent and cast a lot. The
ride via the railroad train up the
East or Westside from Portland to
Corvallis does not convince a stran
ger that Benton is a great county
or a desirable one in which to live
It takes more than . that. It re
quires a ride into the farming dis
tricts where the lands and homes of
the bnsy farmer? are brought into
view. "This is the poorest coun
try I ever saw, and I am in a hurry
to get out of it,." exclaimed a man
the other day whose knowledge of
Benton county had been gained
through a ride from Portland via
the Westside to Corvallis. He in
tended to take the next train home,
but a local real estate man induced
him to take a ride among the farms
to the west and south of town,
"It's a fine "country; T like it very
much. I did not know you had
snch a beautiful country out here."
That was his' remark after his re
turn to town, and before leaving he
declared that when he can sell out
in the East he will come back to
Benton ti buy a farm. That is
some of the work the much abused
real estate man is doing for Benton
county. It is a work that- no one
else will do, and that must go undone
unless our local agents keep it up.
It is a reason why business men
and others should not advise home
seekers to gteer,c!ear of the real es
tate agents. It were far better to
send them to the local agents, for,
by so doing, even if no sale be
made, opportunities will be given
the visitors to get a favorable im
pression of the country, which can
not be obtained if there is nobody
to show them around.
ine number or .Easterners now
touring the vicinity is larger than
usual, and is likely to so continue
until after the close of the Fair
Some are home seeking; others are
not. All are shown through con

The situation that begins to con
front the pfficers of the, club is in
the nature of a breath from the in
ferno. The penalty in .their first
case was $300 or , three months in
jail. They must win on the appeal
or pay the sum or go to jail. There
is not a lawyer in town but be
lieves and says they will. .. lose.
Meantime on the cases, the penalty
is a sentence and imprisonment,
because of second offense. Again
the defendants must win in the
courts, which it is almost certain
they cannot. Most men would
shudder a little to be in the mess
in which the club' officers find them
selves. Is is not foolish of th
members to encourage them in
such a business?
