Albany Herald: Interest has
been manifested in the course of
Coryallis as to their "club" which
as a distributor ot stimulants, in a
dry town has kept the mills of thej
law busy. The accused had.: the'
benefit of able counsel and nothing
which could be done in their favor -was
apparently omitted.. But the
facts could not be controverted.
These club1!, being a transparent ef
fort to evade the law regulating the
sale of liquors, deserve the fate
which they are meeting. When a
majority vote establishes a law, it
should be strictly complied with,
and the disposition of the' people at
present is to require such - observ
ance of the local option law. ; t 5 i
Wednesday's Albany Herald:
Judge William Galloway yester
day; decided the habeas corpus case
brought by Mr. . and Mrs, John
Senger of - Corvallis, for the recov
ery of their . grandchild" Wilma
Warren, by awarding the little girl
to her .father, Luther Warren.
The suit was brought by the child's
maternal grandmother and, grand
father, who had cared for her from
the time she was - born until last
spring, when the father took the
child to his parents. In the coun
ty court the child was awarded to
theSerigers, but . Mr. and Mrs.
John Warren, parents cf the father
against whom the suit had .been
brought, appealed the case to the
circuit court, and here a trial was
held, with the result that the father
who claimed the right to have the
child and care for her, was put in
charge of the little girl. - The. de
cision was rendered after a. careful
trial of the case . before Judge Gal

here will be a mighty angry
young woman in California tomor
row. She is Miss Lelia Howard,
who left Corvallis for the Golden
state, last night's six o'clock C. &
E, When she goes into her trunk
on arrival for a hair pin or a hand
kerchief , -she will find neither. Nor
will she find aoy other of the wild
erness of creations, fluffery and
flummery incideut to a lady's bou:.
doir.'when she lifts the lid of that
trunk. Indeed, it will all be dread
ful. 'Two' trunks were at the JC. & E.
station when Miss Howard arrived
at the depot. They were trunks
that looked very much alike on ti e
outsidd, but dreadfully unlike on
the inside. .One contained corsets,
stockings, smelling salts, needles,
pins, combs, safety pins, scissors,
ribbons, laces, and 14,000,000 other
articles enumerable only in the cen
sus. The other contained a dozen
football suits, that were being ship
ped to Jefferson for use in playing
a game this afternoon.
It was all easy. Friends were
about her. saying goodbyes, and
good wishes: She claimed, and
the baggageman checked. the
wrong trunk. When in the quiet
uds and sanctity of her own room
after arrival she lifts the lid and
reaches into her trunk with perfect
confidence for a lace handkerchief
and grabs instead a pair ot tootball
trousers, there will be a smothered
scream. When, she makes one
more grab and gathers a pair of
shin guards, there will be a shriek.
When, as the survey goes .on , and
she encounters; firs' t a nose guard
and then one after another of the
horrid articles that fit out a foot
ball chieftain for the fray, well
then, there will be everything but
a funeral. '
The discovery was made long
after Miss Howard was well on her
way to Imperial. California, which
is her destination. Sam Damon is
the man who is out the football
suits, and has left instead, a trunk
for which he has no use ' in this
world, or the next, that is nof'for
the present. The wires are buzzing
meantime with telegrams, and after
a week or so, Miss Howard will be
relieved of her football outfit and
