Certain Oregon newspapers de
fend the proposition that the indict
ed and convicted representatives
from Oregon ought not to resign,
and therein give token of a queer
conception of public virtue. Strip
ped of all sentiment, the offense of
these convicted officials is that they
have violated the very laws they
enacted for others to obey. They
have given a staggering exempli
fication of what it is to be false to a
sacred public duty. We may all
regret the condition and out of per
sonal friendship or kindly sympathy
smother the indignation " naturally
elicited by this betrayal of a public
tru&t, but there is no justification
for urging that these men should
continue to hold office and ' draw
salaries. To defend such a conten
tion is to tell the citizen, the pres
ent and the future citizen, that
there is no shame in the condemna
tory verdict of a jury or in the sen
tence of a court. -It is to tell them
that when in office, it is just as well
for a convicted man as for a man of
rare probity to serve in public
place. It is a proposition so dia
metrically at variance with the com
monly accepted notion of decency,
that it is astounding that public
journals would defend it. What
ever may be the duty of Mr. Mitch
ell, Mr. Williamson and Mr. Her
mann in the premises, there ought
not to be one, in the light of the
facts, to counsel them not to resign.

N. Price, a highly respected
and old time resident of Benton
county dropped dead 'at eight
o'clock last Friday " morning in a
store in Portland, and was buried
Saturday in the cemetery at Simp
son's chapel, near the old home of
the deceased in Southern Benton.
His demise came among total Strang-
m - . .
ers, ana it was several nours Derore
the affrighted Portland merchant
and those about him, learned the
identity of the dead. Mr. Price
went four weeks ago to Portland
and bought a lot in one of the sub
urbs of the city. He built a house
which was rapidly rounding jnto
completion, and with his wife, Mr.
fnce was preparing xo occupy 11.
At the very hour of his passing his
errand in town was the purchase of
furniture and groceries with which
to begin life in the new habitation.
He had made a purchase in a store,
and while the salesman was wrap
ping it up, Mr. Price fell dead on
the floor. There was no warning,
no signal of what was to happen.
With his face ashen in death, he
dropped to the floor and expired.
The clerk hastened to his side, but
only learned that his customer was
beyond human aid. The nex t query
became the one of who was the man
before him. Inquiry along this
line was prosecuted vigorously,
but there was no one to answer.
The coroner was summoned, but
could not give the dead a name.
The bereaved wife, ignorant of
the facts, was in another part of
the big city, and had an engage
ment to meet her husband at a cer
tain place. At the appointed hour,
she went to the rendezvous, but he
was not there, he was dead.
Out at Sellwood, resided W. I.
Price, a son. He went to Sellwood
from Benton county, about a month
ago. to reside. He could have told
the crowd the identity of the dead
man, if he could have been at the
store, or later at the morgue.
It was noon, four hours after his
death, before the body of Mr. Price
was identified. The stub ot a check
in his pocket contained the name
of the man from whom he had
bought the lots. From him the
name was secured of the man who
built the house' He was found af
ter much trouble, and at the mor
gue was able to identify the body.
The day was nearly exhausted be
fore relatives in the city had been
informed of the tragic developments
of the morning.
As the sun went down Saturday
evening a large assembly of old
neighbors stood in the country
churchyard at Simpson's chapel,
and saw the casket containing the
body of L N. Price lowered into
the grave, and earth to earth, dust
The body with the funeral party
reached Corvallis on the Westside
at noon that day. . Relatives and
friends met them at the station and
started at once for the cemetery

After a week of unusual interest
made so by the presence of prom
inent speakers from abroad, the re
opening week exercises at the Meth
odist Episcopal church came to a
close Sunday night. Friday night
concluded the series of sermons. Dr.
John Coleman, president of Wil
lamette University, delivering the
address. In a polished yet power
ful discourse, he sought to prove
that belief in God, and development
m Christian religion is educative,
and that unbelief is just the oppo
site. It takes no effort of the brain
declared the speaker, to say I don't
believe, but searching out the
truths of God broadens the mind,
sharpens the intellect and leads in
to paths that are educative and
A general church reception fol
lowed Dr. Coleman's address, sev
eral hundred being present. Lem
onade and wafers were served by
the young people of the church.
Strangers were welcomed and a
good time enjoyed by all.
The service Sunday began with
a love feast at 9:45, followed at 10:
30 by ajermon by Dr. Reder of
At the conclusion of the address
the congregation was given oppor
tunity to contribute towards the
payment of the debt that has been
incurred in remodeling the church.
For the purpose, printed contracts
were passed around and those de
siring signed for as many shares or
fractions of shares as they wished
to pay, Each share represented
the payment of one dollar per
month for a period of three years.
There was a children's rally at
3 p. m. with an excellent talk on
habits by Dr, Rader, and the ser
mon at night was by Rev. G. H.
Feese. Contributions were also
solicited in the concluding minutes
of the evening services, and the
total amount of money pledged dur
ing Sunday was. about $3300
To complete the entire project
arid put the edifice in firstclass
shape, $4,700 is required and this
it is stated, be provided, and the
work finished immediately.
Dr. Rader declares that the church
when completed will be one of the
best equipped in the valley.
The annual game of football be
tween the Junior elevens of OAC
and the State University was won
by the strong lads of the OAC team
on College field last Friday after
noon. The game was watched by
a large crowd of spectators, and
was very interesting. The OAC
team was stronger in every way,
the score scarcely representing their
real superiority over the visitors.
In the first half, there was no
score. Eugene had an opportun
ity to do so when an OAC player
muffed the kickoff and a Univer
sity man fell on the ball on OAC's
25 yard line. Her men however,
were not strong enough to shove
the Collegians back and the latter
soon worked the ball back up the
field and out of a posiiion of peril.
Early in the second half, starting
from Eugene' s 45 yard line, the
Collegians rushed the oval the bal
ance of the way for the only touch
down of the game. Later on they
again drove tha visitors to the lat
ter' s own 50 yard line, and was
apparently headed for a touchdown
when a penalization for offside
caused them to lose the ball on
downs. During the srame Eugene
rushed the ball 74 yardsl and OAC
men carried it 134 yards. Porter'
field at one time got away for a 1 5
yard quarterback run, but was call
ed back on some technicality. The
Ion gest run of the day was 20 yards
by a Eugene halfback .
The most significant feature of
the game was the flashes of foot
ball genius seen in the play' of
some of the new OAC men. Por
terfield, a freshman quarterback,
and Darby at tackle, playing foot
ball tor ms nrst year, are men sure
to play brilliant ball in another sea
son, and to make excellent men to
take the places of some of veterans
the team is to lose. The same. Is
true of Cherry at center and Mc-
Kinnon at guard, while . there is
lots of promise in many of the oth
er men. Captain Ray Walker
played star ball, and Sweek worked
to an excellent advantage. The
lineup of the two teams was:
