TRAIN KILLED HIM.
Harry' Wick's son Frank-
Tried to Mount car in Motion
and Fell Under Wheels.
Wednesday morning, the melan
choly intelligence ran through Cor
vallis that Frank, the 14-year old
son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wicks,
for years residents of Co v'allis, had
been killed by a train. The family
resides now in Albany. Frank had
gorie for a day i on a visit to
Millersburg, the next station north
of Albany, and while attempting to
mount a moving freight train for
the return home, fell under the
whee's and was instantly killed.
The funeral occurred in Albany
yesterday afteijioon, and Mrs.
Humbei t, an old Corvallis friend
of the lamily, conducted the serv
ice. Mrs. McFadden, Mrs. How
ard, Mrs. Skelton, and other Cor
vallis fr? ds attended the obse
quies. The account of the accid
ent is told as follows by the Albany

fifteen and twenty miles an hour.
Young Wicks attempted to catch a
ladder on the fourth car from the
end, missed his hold,, was thrown
under the car and v mangled to
pieces. His companion, rushed for
assistance, and a telephone mes
sage sent to Albany. The train
men did not know of the accident
until notified at the depot, and of
course are blameless. The conduct
or went back after the body and
brought it to the city where Coron

of A. W. Bowersox, Robert Mur

The testimony of the Harland
boy was that when the train whist
led they went to the platform at the
station, without intending to get
on, and were standing there, when
the Wicks boy, on the impulse sud
denly said come on. and the next
thing the Harland boy saw was

Frank Wicks was 14 years
age, and a boy ot excellent char
acter. He had sold sandwiches ard
coffee at the depot during the past
year, accumulating it is said nearly
$500, probably doing the largest
business of any boy. as he met all
the trains, even the late overland
and early morniue trains. He at

And Denys God's Wisdom
Ex-Preacher Says Local
Option Law Does.
A preacher, so-called at least, de
fending saloons and the saloon busi
ness before an audience, was a
spectacle in the circuit court room
last night. An audience of 80 to
00 people was present, and was
unquestionably interested, if for
no other reason, because of the nov
elty of the occasion. -Probably un
til the advent of the person in
question, no preacher ever declared
saloons to have the sanctioa of
Jesus Christ, and that any effort to
prevent saloons and the saloon busi
ness is an assault on Christ himself
and a quesiioning of the wisdom of
the Lord Almighty. A doctrine
like that, announced and stouUy
defended as the gospel of the Bible
is obviously in the nature of a sur
prise to those accustomed from
childhood to the orthodox, and in
consequence, all the speaker said
was listened to with deep attention,
by some of course with unexpressed
derision, by others with reverential
and rapt appreciation. ;
Was a Preacher in Kentucky.
The speaker was Rev, H. M;
Street. He is from Prineville, and
is reputed to be, or at least to have
been, a preacher in the Christian
church. He averred himself dur
ing his lecture as he called it, to
have been until recently, a regular
ly licensed preacher, and to have
spent many years in saying souls.
Incidents that he related of his min
isterial career had their scenes laid
in Kentucky. Others occurred
while he was a preacher in Arkans-.
as. He admitted thBt a gulf now
exists between him and his former
brethern, and declared that he is in
the right and they in the wrong.
He said, "it is a very remarkable
step for a man to deny the things
that for years he has preached, but
that such is the situation in which
now find myself", and that ob
viously he expects determined op
position from his former brethren.
His lecture, he said, is the product
of conscience and two years study. 1
His mission in the present work, he
said, is to do all he can to defeat
operation of the local option law.
Of course, a primary effort in his
campaign, is to make sentiment for
the Jayne bill, which the Whole
sale Liquor Dealers Association has
pending for adoption by the voters
under the initiative at the June el
ection. He says he is not paid by
the liquor men for making his cam
paign, and that he is depending
upon voluntary contributions for
his remuneration. The hat was
passed at the end of the address, J.
K. Berry and F. Hopkins, taking
up the collection. Something like
$3 or $4 was contributed.
draws a salary from them.
He Quoted Much Scripture.
In was in the realm of the scrip
tures however, that "Rev." Street
made his main argument. He
quoted many a passage from the
Bible with reference to wine.
"Drink ye no longer water, but
take a little wine for the stomach's
sake," was one of the passages on
which he relied for justification of
his position. He told of the in
cident in the Bible where Christ
made six vessels of water into as
many vessels of wine at a marriage
age feast. "Out of the heart
cometh blasphemy" and in kind
red wickedness was a passage that
was held up as proving that iniq
uity comes "from the heart" and
not from "bad whiskey."' Jesus
Christ was put forward in as many
places as possible as using and
countenancing the use of wine, but
with all his agility the speaker
failed to locate 'he "redeemer of
mankind behind a bar, or in a sa
loon or justifying a saloon." After
summing up all his bibical quota
tions he closed his address with the
declaration, "I am opposed to this
local option law because it is a con
demnotion of ihe teachings of Jesus
Christ and 2. denial of the wisdom
of Almighty God." !
Nobody presided at the meeting.
Mr. Street introduced himself. Mike
Kline and a number of his friends
were consp cuous on the front seat
at the meeting, an active before
hand inviting people out to , the
lecture. Several ministers and a
dozen ladies were in the audience.

Whiskey is Wrongly Blamed.
The speaker declared that before
he cast loose from the orthodox
view of saloons, he discovered "in
tolerance" in the church. He in
sisted that the local law is a 'pow
erful sign of this intolerance. He
ascribed the whole local option in
movement to the church, and abus
ed the church roundly for defend
ing a law that so interfered
with the rights of men.
Lust of gold, he said, is the root
of all evil. There are 2,000 mil
lionaires in the church. More times
it is the lust of gold that is res
sponsible for a crime, when in fact
the churchmen cry out that it is
whiskey that cause the crime.
Many a tragedy he declared and
many a shortcoming is ascribed to
whiskey, in which whiskey has
had nothing to do.
One time when he was conduct
ing a meeting in JientucKy, ne
said, nearly all the girls in the
neighborhood were becoming con
verted, which meant that the dan
cing parties would be interfered
with. So the young men held a
council of war and determined to
break up the meeting. They sent
to town for whiskey and the next
night, after imbibing enough of the
whiskey to make their hearts stout,
they took fence rails and smashed
in all the windows. It was cold
weather there, and because the
windows were out no more meet
ings could be held. "'They said
whiskey caused those young men to
interfere with that meeting, but was
it whiskey?" cried the speaker.
"The fathers and mothers of those
young men were members of the
church and, ignoring the council
held beforehand, they laid all that
proceeding at the door of whiskey.
It was whiskey that was made the
scape goat, and so many a time in
human experience, whiskey , is
blamed when it isn't whiskey at all
concluded the orator, appearing in
the guise of -champion of the
"crayther" with a fervor that would
have been soul delighting to the
Wholesale Livuor Dealers, regard
less of whether or not Mr. Street
