BACK FROM CALIFORNIA. Football Hen Arrive and are in Fine Condition Things About the Game. The OAC football men arrived from California Wednesday after noon, and met with an enthusiastic ereetine at the station. Several hundred students, headed by the cadet regiment band were at the de tot. and the reception was stormy and strenuous. The veils of the receptionists was significant ap proval of the work of the OAC men in the Berkeley game, where, all accounts agree, they acquitted themselves most creditably. The . team against which the boys went is accounted by Dr. Steckle as one of the best in the history of Cal ifornia football. The speed was great and the teamwork superb. There was an unlimited resource of men, no less than 30 players, all said to be of equal availability, be ing on the sidelines, waiting for an opportunity to go into the struggle. The moment a Berkeley player showed weakness, the coaches took him out and sent in a fresh man. Throughout the first half Berkeley, was easilv held out of striking dis tance, save in the case of a place kick which the Californians were enabled to make by an OAC fumble. In the second half, the OAC men had to play on their nerve against the constantly freshened troops of the Blue and Gold. For mation after formation was hurled 'against them but they met every "assault with as much power as with which it came, and the ball surged back and forth with honors largely even save when Snedigar by a lucky chance, got away for a sixty yard run for the only touchdown of the game. Once Williams, got "away on exactly the same terms, and after a thirty yard run was only prevented from making a touch- ' down by bsing driven a few inches 'outside of bounds. Most of the OAC players, believe that in an- ' other trial, fierce as are the latter, they could do the Californians. All of the team arrived home in '" good condition, and unless some of them get blown up or fall out of a : well, the prospect is that every one in the bunch will be in the pink of condition for the big game with U. of O. on Saturday of next week. Since his return. Manager Stim son described his feelings as Snedi- ' gar was making his 60 yard run for the touchdown. Evidently he didn't want the Calif ornian to cross the goal line. "Gosh: if I'd had a gun, I'd shot him" he said. . Excitement Among Boys. Great interest and enthusiasm is being stirred up among the boys of this town as the result of a unique and original offer - being made by J. M. Nolan & Son. This store announces that the salesman for Ederheimer, Stein & Co., makers of Xtragood boy's clothing, Chicago, will call within ten days and they offer to give, feee, any Xtragood suit ' in their store to the first boy under sixteen who finds . and iden tifies this salesman. The feature of the plan is the one set expression which must be used by the young detectives, who are required to say: "You are from Ederheimer, 'Stein & Co. , Chicago, and sell Xtragood clothes." The salesman, it is said, will not admit his identity unless addressed in these precise words. So active have the. boys become in their search that every stranger who reaches town is quickly besieg' ed and questioned by a crowd of young sleuths. Wood to Sell-'-Stumpage.

Mast Give Bonds or go to Jail A law- is not a JokefcEven to Clubs,- Mike Klines foolhardy scheme of running a booze joint in a place where such a thing is prohibited by vote of the people has got him and his assistants into a closeY place. than ever. 1 hey have all been in the custody of the authorities since four o'clock yesterday afternoon. They were under guard of an offi cer in their sleeping apartments throughout last night. Thev have been warned that they must give bonds by four o'clock this af ternoon, or go to jail. What the outcome will be will develop within the next few hours. The trouble, is that none of the defendants have given bonds in the last three cases in which they have been convicted. One of these cases dates away back to October nth, nearly a month ago. The officers have shown every leniency in the world, more even than ought to have been shown. Promises have been made by Mike that the bonds would be forthcoming, but when the time came nobody appeared to become sureties for the convicted defendants. They declared they would give one of the fidelity com panies for sureties, but their lawyer at Portland lately informed them that the companies would not go their bonds. In consequence, Judge Holgate has issued commit ments and the officets have deter mined that oaii must be put up or the men go to jail. Of the five cases tried, bonds have as yet been given an but two. October nth Kline was sentenced to twenty days in jail and to pay a fine of $400, and Hooligan was fin ed $300. October 24, Kline, Hool igan and Miline were all sentenced to 30 days in jail and to pay fines of $500 each. October 24th, Kline and Hooligan were sentenced each to 30 days and fined $soo. Bonds have not been given in either case The bond required from Miline is $500, and from Hooligan $1,500. Kline has to give one bond of $600 and two of $800 each, mamng $2, 200 in all. The foolhardiness of the attempt to throttle law, and to do a thing that the people, the law. the courts and the officers . declare shall not be done is what makes it burdensome ior the men to give bonds. Ordinary men able to go security do not care tj go bonds on a scheme that five juries without a dissenting voice have pronounced impossible. This figures somewhat, perhaps, m the tardiness of the de fendants in putting up bail. Something of a change has come over the attitude of Kline and those assisting him in his outlawed enter prise. When the shebang opened it was with a spirit of utter defiance of the law. When the first fine was imposed, Mike Kline requested Judge Holgate to give him the full penalty. Of late, attorneys for Mike have been requesting District Attorney Bryson to take but one case before the circuit court, and to dismiss all the rest. Requests of the same character were made of District Attorney Brown, Mr. Bry son s superior in othce. mat is to say, for the tone of defiance and bluster, there is subsituted an indi rect appeal for merfcy. It is under stood thac Mr. Brown will not in terfere in the matter, and that Mr. Bryson' s own preferences will be followed.. At enormous expendi ture of valuable time, Mr. Bryson has delved both into the law and the facts governing Mike's enter prise. He has with great patience and much ability brought matters to the point where he is in position, if the managers of. the outfit but realized, to dictate terms of sur render. Later on they will come to a full understanding on- this point. They have, in all, $4,500 in fines, and a good many days asses sed against them as penalty for viol ated law, and there is not a lawyer in Corvallis. and but few, if any, elsewhere, but believe that higher courts will sustain every step taken in the lower court. It all means that District Attorney Bryson is in position where he is totally inde pendent as to whether or not there is compromise, and he should be given his own way in working out the Inevitable end to the campaign on which he is bent. Nine-tenths of the people or Benton county are behind him in his effort to uphold and defend the law. A feature of interest is that after each convictiontin the cases that have been brought, against Kline and his flunkies, Mr. Bryson has offered, if they would close up their establishment, to dismiss all other pending cases. All along, this of fer of peace by Mr. Bryson has been laughed at by the defiant de fendants. who on some account were persuaded that their shebang could be run right along, even though a legitimate, licensed saloon can not be operated. In spite -of this defiant attitude, however on their part. Mr. Bryson went even further and gave defendants . great liberty in the matter of securing bonds, delining to send them to jail when other prosecuting officers would have done so, and in many other ways gave them consideration and kindness. Since they spurned Mr. Bryson' s offers to drop these prosecutions all along, neither the defendants nor their attorneys should now come to Mr. Brysoni with the plea that he bef mercifu and take but one case " before the circuit court. The very fact that Kline's lawyers take this course is the best sign in the world that they are convinced that Bryson is going to win. OF EXTREME INTEREST. Measures Before the Citizen's League Action to be taken Tuesday Night. Matters of much import, affect ing ;the rights - of Corvallisites generally are to be considered at the meeting of the Citizens League next Tuesday night. A committee has urged a-aumber of improve ments for beautifying Corvallis, and the report has been made ' a special order. Among the recom mendations possible of odoption are: All telephone, telegraph and light poles to be removed jrom Main street, and all such poles to be painted ; All trees on Main street to be cut down; - All awnings and signs out of har- mony with what is sightly to be condemned; That the district in which cement sidewalks are made mandatory be widely extended, including a large area of residence property: All unsightly buildings on Main street to be condemned and torn away; The swinging of gates over side walks to be prohibited; To provide by city ordinance for the lawn or bulkhead outside of sidewalks be widened so as to re duce largely the width of the streets; To forbid by city ordinance, spit ting on pavements or public place's within the city limits: There will be a variety of views as to whetherall of the recommend ations mentioned above should be carried into effect. If so im portant body as the Citizens League should recommend the proposed measures, it is extremely probable that the city council would feel dis posed to enact legislation necessary to carry the various propositions into effect. It will be of extreme interest to those who want the re forms, and tnose who might desire to oppose them, to be on hand in war paint Tuesday night. Besides the recommendations herein alluded to, there are a number of others of more or less importance,, and they will all be considered and passed upon by the League Tuesday night, MARO The Magician in Chinatown. Maro, the eminent prestidigita- teur, who will shortly play an en gagement in this city, furnished an amusing episode to a large crowd of spectators during his recent ap pearance in San Erancisco, Like most people who visit the Golden Gate city, Maro was anxious to visit the district known as China town; hence at his earliest conven ience he and a guide proceed to the celestial headquarters. Passing one of the main business streets they stopped m front of a Chinese grocery, where lay a num ber of dead pigeons which had been killed at a shooting match and af terwards bought up by the enter-- prising merchant. Maro picked up one of the pigeons and at the same time enquiring of the pro prietor of the grocery why some of the birds were dead and some alive. The Chinaman indignantly replied "No live, alle dead, Melican man shoot alle same tis mornin." "Oh no, John", some are dead and some are alive," answered Maro, "Now this one that l hold m my hand is alive." "I bet no live" and John backed his assertion by holding out a handful of coin. By this time a large crowd had assembled, mostly Chinamen, and Maro. thinking he had secured a good audience., gent ly smoothed the feathers of the, pigeon, gave it a toss into the air and it took its flight. The crowd was thunderstruck, some ran across the street while others were paralyz ed with wonder and amazement. The clever magician, however, simply said here is another and again a pigeon flew down the street. The proprietor of the grocery let his handful of money fall to the ground, rushed into the store and locked the door. Maro tried to ex plain that it was only a trick, but John could not see it that way. CENSUS FIGURES For Benton What the County Pro- . duced Interesting Figures.

Thn is Maro's latest magical sen sation wherein he gives a weird and wonderful exhibition of magic as performed by the Hast India fakirs. From a small Indian shawl prev iously shown empty he produces, first, two white table cloths, which are placed on two empty tables. From the shawl of mystery he then produces dish after dish of viands, fruits, nuts, etc.. until the two large tables are covered with fifteen large dishes and all filled . with edi bles, portions of which Maro dis tributes among the audience. He also produces a tray with six glass es, each filled to the brim with wat er. Maro then produces from the wonderful scarf, first, a small bird cage containing a live white dove, then a very large cage standing three feet high full of other white doves. 1 hen suddenly there ap pears an immense bouquet nearly three feet across from which he produces a very mysterous and in exhaustible dish out of which he takes many beautiful nosegays and handsful of bonbons. Suddenly and without warning, the audience ate much surprised to see in Maro' s hands a large oriental pagoda from which a large tub which is prev iously shown empty, is entirely filled with confetti. Then to the wonderment of all, the great Maro produces from this empty tub sev eral white doves, then several rab bits, a hen and a rooster, and a duck, until the stage does indeed, look like a glimpse into fairy land. You must see Maro if you wish to see the greatest wonder of the age. Real Estate Transfers.
