SAUNDERS TO PLAY.
Big Fullback in Today's Game-Other
Noted Players in Lineup.
Every indication is that this af
ternoon's game of football will be
strenuous. In the string of names
that makes up the roll of the Che
mawa team, that of Reub Saun
ders, the giant fullback and one or
two other players are alone famil
iar. Most of the others are stran
gers, and if some of the players
were once on the Carlisle eleven, it
need not be. surprising. The play
ers are, McCully, Moon, Williams,
James, Green, Peazzoni, Sortor,
Payde, Reddy, Poland, Shouchuk,
Foster, Saunders, Wilson and Was
hoe. If "Peazzoni" and "Shou
chuk" : are as hard to handle as
are their names it will be all day
with little men on the O. A. C.
team like Emily and Rinehart. A
person writing to Corvallis from the
Chemawa school about the game
says "from the lineup. O. A. C.
seems to have a mighty strong
bunch, but they will find out
they are in a game when the Che
mawa lads begin hammering their
line." The Chemawans have been
in training longer than the O. A.
C. men, and ought to be a hard
crowd to handle. Some folks; in
fact, predict that they will turn out
a harder aggregation than the Pull
man team which plays in Corvallis
two weeks from today. Nobody
expects it to be an easy game by
any means, and for that reason
there is much interest, and a large
attendance may be expected.
One thing that will attract many
old timers will be the re-appearance
on college field of Reuben Saun
ders, the giant fullback of the team
who was last seen here eight years
ago. That was one of the hardest
games ever seen on O. A. C. field,
and it was only won for the college
men by a scratch. During the
game, Saunders and an O. A. C.
player got to slugging and the lat
ter had to be carried from the field
as a result of the prowess of the tall
redskin in what was then some
times an important branch of the
game. Saunders is a player whom
it is always worth while to watch,
for he is both a powerful man and
a formidable player.
The Chemawas are to arrive on
the i. 30 train from Albany and
will take a light dinner at Hotel
v.ui v aula xii 1 1 1 it-wqiiy niici uiivau
The game is called for 2.30. The
cadet band under the leadership of
Harry Beard will appear for the
AWARDS COMING HOME.
From Benton's Exhibit at Lewis and
C'ark Fair What They are.
While there has been more or less
criticism of Benton's exhibit at the
Fair, and considerable complaint
that in scope and quality the dis
play did not do Benton justice, it is
gratifying to know that by the Ex
position judges the exhibit was con
sidered worthy of notice in many
respects. Wednesday there arrived
from the manager of exhibits, H.
E. Dosch, a list of the awards so
far made in the Benton display:

lective exhibit grains and grasses.

FOUR HUNDRED NOW.
Hunter's License Also Some Marriage
License Incidents Close Call
The number of hunter' s licenses
issued up to Thursday afternoon
was an even 400.' That means that
$400 in cash has been paid out for
the priv;lege of hunting in Benton.
Most of the hunters who sit -and
wait at the county clerk's desk
while the license is being filled out,
drop a gentle hint to the effect that
the license law is a graft. Whether
$400 worth of benefit has accrued
to Benton in protection to the game
us a result of the law is a proposi
tion on which others than hunters
have well defined opinions. Per
haps nine people out of ten agree
with the hunters.
Apparently all the licenses were
in use on Sunday, which was the
first day of the open season for
pheasant shooting. It so happened
that the day before was Portland
day at the Fair, and a holiday with
the clerk's office closed, which
meant that no licenses were avail
able. Several hunters had forgot
ton to obeain credentials and there
was a great demand all day for
Deputy Clerk Johnson who was ob
liging enough to do a curbstone
stunt in licenses that helped belited
hunters out of their difficulty. With
nearly 400 licenses in use and prob
ably some hunters abroad without
licenses it might be figured out that
if every man got the limit, which
is likely, about 4,000 birds were
slain Sunday. If the total dead and
missing has since increased to 10,
000 it need not be surprising. The
chase has gone on with such assid
uity that the frightened birds are
driven from field to wood and from
wood to field again, One frighten
ed hen alighted in a corner of the
athletic grounds at the college the
other evening while the football
men were at work. Another alighted
on the window sill of the bay win
dow at the residence of Mrs. M.
Jacobs Sunday afternoon.
An Alsea lad sent in for a hunt
er's license, enclosing the fee. of
course. The boys in the county
clerk's office knew all about his case
and after making out the hunter's
license properly, they made out al
so a marriage license. It had his
name in it, his best girl's name and
everything else requisite, except the
signature of the clerk. It was pin
ned over the hunter's license so that
when the envelope should be open
ed gain the impression that the mar
riage license was the only enclosure.
The news is that the scheme work
ed beautifully, and that for some
moments after the opening of the
envelope,, the youth was first pale,
then red and in many other res
pects the abused victim of a cruel,
Another point with reference to
hunter's license is that Robert John
son since he has officiated as an as
sistant over at the clerk's office has
made frequent offers'of a free mar
riage license to many bachelors
about town. Among these was H.
W. Kaupisch. "What's that?"
ejaculated Kaupisch, after Robert
had made him the bold offer. The
next day Kaupisch led a bride to
the altar, but it happened in Linn
county. Bob remembers now that
there was a dangerous look in the
creamery man's eye at the time of
the license proposition, and is daz
ed to discover how near he came to
dropping $3 for the license.
On another occasion, Robert of
fered Dr. A. C. Steckle a free mar
riage license, whereupon Lieut.
Quinlan, who stood by, enquired if
Robert was the advance agent of
the census. .

Annual Good Road's Convention to be
Held in This Town.
One of the biggest things that
has happened to Corvallis in a long
time is the selection of the town
for the next annual meeting of the
State Good Roads convention. The
convention is not to be a side show
or a district affair, but the regular
annual state convention, lasting
three days, and bringing delegates
galore from every part of the state.
It will embody a programme of
surpassing interest in which the
subject of good roads will be con
sidered from every standpoint. It
will present information and statis
tics that will be of great value in
forming sentiment favorable to bet
terment of public highways. It
will be such a convention as will
interest every' home owner in the
county and which ought to attract
all such into attendance on its ses
sions. Its one and only theme of
discussion will be tbe general wel
fare of the community as related to
public roads, and since that vitality
concerns every inhabitant, even
thus far in advance there would
seem to be a universal determina
tion to make of the convention the
reddest letter day in the history of
the county. The days for the ses
sions are November 15th, 16th and
17th. Governors, senators, legis
lative members, county judges, and
all manner of dignitaries always at
tend these conventions, and there is
no probability that exception " will
be made to the rule in the case of
Very much credit is due County
Judge Watters for securing the con
vention for Benton county. He
has during his term of office been a
faithful attendant at every session
of the Good Roads convention.
That attendance finally gained him
a place on the executive committee.
The executive committee fixes each
year the place for holding the con
vention, and that is how Corvallis
got it over many other applicants.
Fores will be at work between
now and the opening day that will
make the convention a hummer.
One of the prettiest weddings
seen in Corvallis for some time was
celebrated at the home of Mr., and
Mrs. F. G. Clark on last Wednes
day when their neice. Miss Laura
ette B. Beckwith, was united in
marriage to W. M. Fleming, of Sa
lem, Promptly at 10:30 o'clock the
wedding party entered the parlor to
the strains of a wedding march
played by Mrs. E. F. Green. They
took their places under an arch of
Oregon grape, white sweet peas and
white clematis, where Rev. E. F.
Green performed the impressive
The bride was gowned in white
silk colliene appliqued in lace roses,
and carried bride roses. Miss Sadie
Dixon, as bridesmaid, wore pink
silk mull and carried pink roses.
The groom ant his attendant,

The double parlors were decor
ated with ferns and roses and the
dining room in asters. A most de
licious wedding breakfast was serv
ed to twenty relatives and intimate
friends after which the newly wed
ded pair took the train for Portland
and will be at home to their friends
in Salem after November 1st. The
bride has been a resident of Corval
lis for a year and a half and she has
formed a large circle of friends.
The groom is an exemplary young
man and is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
H. W. Fleming of this city.

NO FIRE PROTECTION.
And he did not Come to Corvallis
With his Factory and
Lack of fire protection was an
influence that recently lost to Cor
vallis an important industry. The
owner of a furniture factory looked
over the situation-with a view of
moving his plant to the town. Ev
ery environment and condition was
favorable and he became intensely
pleased with the prospect. His
mind was apparently all made up
to come. His plant employs a force
of 1 2 to 30 men, Before making
final arrangements, however, he
discovered that he could get no in
surance on his plant, or if so at
such a high rate as to make it pro
hibitive, all because of lack of fire
protection, and he reluctantly gave
up the plan. That is one thing
that the new water works means to
Corvallis, and it will be a good day
for the town when it is in operation
with a fire protection that will make
insurance possible where it is now
impossible, and the rates lower,
where they are now too high.
YOU OUGHT TO SEE IT.
The press all 'along the line is
speaking in lauditory terms of the
play and the players to be seen at
the Opera Houee here next Wed
nesday night. The company is
playing all this week in Portland
and the following from Monday's
Oregonian is a sufficient guarantee
that Corvallis theatre goers have a
treat in store for them:
' 'A real bridge over real water, a
police patrol boat steaming through
a raised drawbridge, a woman
thrown bodily into the river, a sen-,
sational rescue, hunger, laughter
and tears, until the audience is near

is one of the greatest scenic pro
ductions on the popular price stage
anywhere in the country 'On the
Bridge at Midnight," the attraction
this week at the Empire. m It is a
thriller to the end, and the scenery
is far above the ordinary. The
story totd is an intense one, often
lightened by welcome flashes of
humor. Yesterday at both per
formances, the theatre was occupied
to the last available seat, and the
applause was like a park of young
cannons getting busy in a battle.
"This picturesque $10,000 play
has a plot full of interest and Mrs.
Vera Hamilton plays the part of a
blind mother whose child is stolen
from her by a relative so that the
latter could unlawfully divert mon
ey to himself, and the strange ad
venture of the child, who turns out
to be a street arab forms the chance
for Miss Katherine Crego to shine
as Reddy, a convenient person who
knocks the head villian's schemes
awry every time.
