Richards seems to have been
guilty, but the jury was not willing reference to

Colbert Powell Blair, the centen
arian, formerly . of Corvallis, but
now of Pendleton, was a soldier of
the Rogue River Indian war, and
also in' the Black Hawk war. A
favorite story of the aged man has
the latter campaign.
Mr. Blair and a number of his fel
low soldiers one day, like Hanni
bal of old. swore eternal enmitv to
court testimony, it sesms in reality aU Indians, and agreed always to
a resort for the high-toned vimmor- kill them or any of them on sight

riage, the same darkening of the
front transpired. When the raid
was made all manner of folk from
the first families were apparently
there, if newspaper reports are to
be believed. Fstimated by the
slens. there is probably more of
leal deviltry at Richard's than in
half a dozen of the less pretentious
establishments of the same kind in
Portland, the latter of which, of
course, being possibly more amen
able, because not a "hotel."
It justice slipped because, as
they say, the jury was packed, the
fact is to be deplored. It was bad
enough for Richaids and his "ho
tel' to nounsn in jortlana: it is
far worse for a conspiracy to vindi
cate him, when if humbler folk
bad been his clientel and his carav
ansary humbler, conviction would
have been certain. As it is, Rich

at this distance to believe that he

fell to the luck of Mr. Blair to be
his discoverer. Under the terms
of the vow, it was his duty to slay
the dusky youngster. His com
panions reminded him of his agree
ment and told him it was his duty
to strike, As the legend goes, th
kindhearted soldier, eyed the smil
ing little Indian for a moment as
it lay in the bush,' and then with
a remark that sounded something
like "dura the promise," he took
the babe in his arms and carried it
to camp. Before night the fugi
tive band was overhauled and tak
en prisoner, and the waif of the
bush was restored to its mother.
Shortly afterward, peace was con
cluded, and were the story a ro
mance instead of a fact, the assur
ance would be that it was because
of the kindness to the abandoned
Indian child that the Redskins laid
down their arms.
Wrapped Them with
Wire An 'Albany Bridge
The work of a miscreant made
lots of trouble'for the Independent
teiepnone people the - other ; day.
All the Independent lines leading
into Albany from Benton suddenly
refused to be talkable. The con
dition is. whatr'phorie people call
"dead." When the condition was
discovered,' repairers were sent out.
They spent a day in search and
found nothing. A second day was
devoted to the enterprise and bv
and by, on the Albany bridge, it
was discovered that all the lines
had been bound or connected to
gether by a very fine wire which
efiectually killed them all for talk
mg purposes. The wire used was
as fine as 6o or 70 thread, being
utilized in the coil of a phone in
strument. It was so fine that
when first discovered it was taken
for a spider web. The attempt of
a lineman to brush it away exposed
its true character, and at the same
time betrayed the design of the per
son who put it there. Its removal
restored the "dead" line to immed
iate and vigorous life.

Will Corvallis hold its annual
city election under the primary el
ection law ? The town has now an
official population of more than
2,000 as shown by the census made
by Assessor Davis. The primary
law provides that its terms shall be
applied in the elections of all cities
of 2,000 and over. If the election
be not so held, will not the pro
ceedings be illegal, the acts of the
officers be illegal and the whole
fabric of city government without
the form and authority of law ?
So far, nobody has examined in
to the question. There is not yet
interest enough in the election and
who the officers shall be to induce
such an investigation. The one
thing that is known is that the ap
plication of the primary law to city
elections in towns like Corvallis
will somewhat complicate what is
now simple, and put at work
complexity and more or less ex
pense where there is now simplicity
and little or no cost. The law on
the subject is as follows:
Section 6. The nomination of
candidates for municipal offices by
the political parties subiect to the
provisions of this law, shall be gov
erned by this law in all incorporated
towns and cities of this state having
a population of 2,000 and Upward,
as showu by the last preceding na
tional or state census. A provis
ion in another section is that the
nominating election shall be. ; held
on the 30th day next preced
ing such municipal election. The
candidates must circulate or have
circulated petitions asking for their
nomination and these petitions are
filed with the police judge at least
15 days before the nominating el
ection, at which time the said po
lice j udge makes up the official list
of those to be voted for. Between
that and the day for the nominat
ing election a printed ballot is pre
pared for use in: said nominating
eiection. The nominees at this
nominating election are afterward
voted for in the same manner at
the electing election. -
