    Corvallis Times
Official Paper of Benton Comity.
corvallis, oregon,
Tuesday evening nov. 28, 1905.
Hereafter the publication day of tbe
Times will be Tuesday evening and Fri
day evening, instead of Wednesday and
.Saturday mornings. For n years the
' paper has been actually appearing in the
evening, though the following morning
was given out as publication day. The
change now annonnced ought to have
been made 11 years ago.
Whenever they make up their
minds to do so, the people of the
Willamette valley can have ma
cadam roads. Whenever that for
tuitous hour arrives, then will ru
ral residents come into their own,
and then too, will the urban pop
ulation be in a way of attaining the
acme of profit and happiness. Then
the farmers wheat can lie in his
own granary until the price is right,
and no storage to be paid. Then
can hay, potatoes, oats, barley and
every other crop be kept at home
till the price is highest, for then it
can be hauled to market in the dead
of winter far better than right after
iiarvest time, when delivery to
market must take place now because
the roads willjsoon be bad, Then can
the trip to church on Sunday, or to
town on Monday or to the neigh
borhood literary or the Grange,
ar to visit anv farm fireside, be
made on any day, or any evening
with ease and comfort, all things
that cannot be done in winter now
because of muddy roads. Then,
two or three times as heavy a load
can be hauled and vast savins: in
time' and in the cost of delivering
products to market be effected, ev
ery cent and every hour of which
saving of money and time is the
farmer's own, to give him more
leisure for other work and more
profit for his effort, Then, the
land will be worth more, be'
cause the conditions about it will
be more desirable, and more people
will be seeking it. Then, the lot
of the farmer will be happier, his
work will be easier, and his purse
be fuller. New social . relations
will be established, new and pret
tier homes will be built, there will
be more pride in appearance and
more money with which to improve
it; and in all things life in the
country will be sweeter, easier and
happier, and one long stride for
arresting the movement from coun
try to town De made. Is it not
worth the comparatively little ef
fort it will take to get the good
things that will come with good
OAC Football men Left 1 his
Afternoon Their Pros
pects. The OAC football team left today
for Seattle, where they are to play
the University of Washington men
Thanksgiving day. They will go
into the game with the same lineup
that played Willamette, as follows:
center, Cherry: left tackle, Walker;
left guard, Dunlap; left end, Emily;
right guard, Bundy; right tackle,
Dolan; right end. Cooper; quarter
back, Rinehart; right half, Root;
left half, Griffith; fullback, Abra
ham. The substitutes are, Darby,
McKinnon, Iyittle, Rose and Sweek.
Floyd Williams also went along,
but he will not play in the game.
Others of the party were. Dr.
Sleckle, Manager Stimson and
Physical Director Trine. , They
will reach Seattle tomorrow morn
ing, and their headquarters will be
at the Seattle Athletic Clnb. They
-xpect to leave for the . return trip
Thursday night or Friday morning.
The game will be the fifth be
tween the two institutions. The
scores of the past four games have
been, 1897, OAC, 17; U. of W., o;
1902, OAC, 6; U. of W. 16: 1903,
OAC, o;U. of W, 5; 1904, O
AC, 26; U. of W., 5; total, OAC,
49,-U. W. 26.
There is much local speculation
on the outcome of the coming game
The belief is general that OAC
: should win, and by a big enough
score to be decisive. If Steckle's
men play the game they put up
against Willamette, a victory is

They Chewed Sugar Cane as In
of Yore Down in Dixie.
Last Monday evening, Nov. 27th
Mr. and Mrs. S. N. Wilkins enter
tained a number of their friends from
Dixie land, tbe land of cotton, su
gar cane, and negroes. The even
ing was very pleasantly spent in
listening to Southern stories, tales
of the old South as well of the new
South, and music, and lastly in
chewing genuine sugar cane from
the state of Mississippi, Mr. Wil
kins had on Saturday, received
quite a number of stalks of this
sweet cane from tbe South, and
knowing the -tailings of the people
of the Southland for sweet th'ngp,
invited all native sons and daugh
ters of the South to epend the even
ing at his home, and help dispose
of the cane. It was quite noticeable
that the Mississippians, and Ala
bamians had been there before, from
the way they made the cane disap
pear. Six Southern States were repre
sented as follows: Arkansas Mrs.
L. L. Moses, R. J. Moses, Victor P.
Moses, Miss Susie Fiser; Alabama
S. N. Wilkine, Mrs. Sarah E.
Moore, and J. C. Lowe; Tennessee
Rev. J. A. Ellison, G. C. Cate
and G.J. Dodson; Mississippi Dr.
E. H. Taylor, Mrs. C. L. McCaua
land, J. H. Wortham, J. L. Lewis,
and J. H. Harris; Missouri Rev.
C. L. McCausland, who was the on
ly native of the famous "Show me"
state was kept continually explain
ing why the Missourians had to be
shown, and wanted It known by all
present, that he was from near
KaDsasCity. Others present were,
Mrs. S. N. Wilkins, Mrs. J. A. El
lison, Mrs. E. H. Taylor, Misses
Gladys Moore, Marvin, and Mr. Har
old Wilkins.
At a late hour the guests voted
Mr. and Mrs. Wilkins royal enter
tainers; thanked Mr. Wilkins for
his conceiving the idea of a South
ern gathering, and with tbe hearty
hand shake of the South, separated,
all hoping that this would be only
the forerunner of good things com
ing. There will be an early service
at 9 a. m. Thanksgiving Day at the
Episcopal church.

About the Late Game They call it
Best Playing of the Year.
Salem Capitol Journal.
They went, tbey played, and the score
was 29 to o in favor of OAC. The above
eentence tells the tale, and the Willam
ette football team returned from Corval

a cyclone, and that it had struck some
where in their neighborhood. They bad
made a good showing against Stanford.

all over Eugene and defeated Multnomah
Very naturally they thought they knew
something about tbe great game of foot
ball, but they each and every man of
them takes off his hat to the "Farmers."
It was a great game and a clean game.
the cleanest perhaps ever played in the
state, and the Salem' team was simply
outclassed. There was nothing to it from
start to finfsh hut OAC and nobody was
more surprised than the Corvallis play
ers and citizens themselves. They could
hardly believe the great good fortune
that they were achieving, and when it
did fully dawn on them in all its glory
they merely took the town and turned
it upside down; that was all.
Nothing but praise for their opponents
can be heard from the Willamette play
ers. While they seemingly did not put
up the same kind of ball that they did
against Oregon and Multnomah, and
seemed to be having an off day allround,
yet they realize that they were up against
a better team, and the score would not
have been in their favor under the most
auspicious circumstances. They take
their defeat like true sports and are giv
ing the victors all the credit they won
Corvallis has undoubtedly the best col
lege team in the Northwest today and
when they play as they did yesterday

The Salem boys played the best they
knew how, but they could not stop the
terrible onslaught of the "Farmers.

Albany Herald: Willamette
plByed a hard game, but the play
ing of Corvallis was the most tho
rough exhibition of football- ever
seen in this section, the players

lineup, generalship and harmony
among the players they would have
won as easily as from Willamette.

One Dollar Savnd Represents Ten
Dollars Earned.
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.

In Liquor Cases Securing Affidavits
to Present in Court.
A move is on foot to secure, if
possible, a change of venue in the
liquor cases in which Mike Kline
and his officers are defendants. For
something like two weeks, Fred
Weatherford of the law firm of
Weatherford & Wyatt has been se
curing signatures to affidavits to be
presented to Judge Harris when
the motion for a change of venue is
to be made. It is understood that
the papers will he filed within a
few days. It is stated, though the
report is not confirmed, that the de
fendants prefer that the trials be
taken to Lincoln county. What
the efforts to get the trials out of
Benton county will amount to, re
mains to be seen.
The affidavits that the defense
will present in court alleges that
Kline and his co-defendants cannot
get a fair trial before a Benton
jury, because of alleged prejudice
existing among the people in this
county. It says the cases have
been muth talked about in the
newspapers, and much discussed by
the people. It says attempts have
been made by one newspaper in
particular to report the testim ony,
and that much lmflammable matter
on the subject has been published,
It sets forth numerous reasons in
which it is alleged in effect that the
sound judgment of this community
would not prevail in a trial of the
liquor cases.
Some of those who have seen the
affidavit have been more or less
amused at its contents. Many have
refused to sign it, some of them de
claring to Mr, Weatherford that
they do not believe the statements
alleged in the affidavits to be true,
and that in their opinion a perfect
ly fair trial of the cases can be had
in Benton county. One man who
declined to sign informed him that
if Kline and his officers had follow
ed the example of the saloon men
and obeyed the law, there would
have been no casesand therefore no
occasion to ask for a change. The
man in question by the way, was a
stalwart opponent of the local option
law. It was in the country district
more particularly that it was found
difficult to obtain signatures to the
affidavits, according to the inform
ation that is going the rounds. In
Corvallis, the task of getting men
to sign is understood to have been
easier. Here of course, Mike's
establishment knows who its
friends are. It is probable that
there will be considerable curiosity
to see who are the signers of the
Of December Circuit Court
Adjourned Because of
Judge's Illness.
On account of the illness of Judge
Harris, the circuit court for Benton
county has been adjourned to Mon
day, December 1 8th, and thereby
hangs a tale. The fact of adjourn
ment called Robert Johnson, news
paper man and ex-postmaster, for a
few brief moments into that high
function wherein he stood as the ac
credited viceoerent of His Honor,
the court and the official represen
tative of the law of the land. The
judge was in his room at the hotel,
a sick man, unable to convene the
and preside over the court. The
jurymen. 30 in number, were in
waiting, and somebody had to do
something. As bailiff of the court
it fell to Mr. Johnson to perform,
With a smile, bland and gladsome
enough to send a maiden into par
oxysms of pleasure, and with
honey-dew wodds, slick enough to
have jobbed a deacon in a horse
trade, His Honor by proxy, which
was Robert, addressing himself to
the assembled jurymen, excused
them until the 18th of December,
and instructed them to be on hand
at nine o'clock cf that day. They
were Well chosen words that Robert
used, and though they hated alter
coming to court to be compelled to
go home and come back again an
other day each realized that nobody
could have broken the news to
Ihem more sweetly than did His
Temporary Honor.
Later in the day, Judge Harris
appeared in the court room and of
ficially adjourned the term to the
1 6th of December at which time
preliminary matters will be taken
up, preparatory to the regular term
Judge Harris' illness is only tem
porary, being it is understood in
the nature of a bilious attack. He
was sufficiently recovered to be able
to return to his home in Eugene
last night. An earlier date for the
postponement was unavoidable on
account of a term to be held by
Judge Harris in Lincoln county,
