IF THEY WANT IT,
Undoubtedly, the purpose of
those who framed the primary el
ection law was to have the June
election settle the question of what
tnan was to be seuator. The func
tion of the primary election is to
determine what one of all the re
publican candidates shall be the re
publican nominee for senator, and
what one of the democratic candi
dates is to be the democratic nom
inee. If then, the June election is
not to finally and effectively settle
the question of which of the nom
inees is to be the senator, why are
they voted for at all in the regular
state election. If that vote is not
for the purpose of eliminating all
but one of them from the field,
what is it for. The only possible
conclusion is that this June vote
was designed for the rejection of all
but one of the nominees, and the
selection of that one as the people's
choice for senator, this choice to be
subsequently legalized and ratified
by the legislature.
Acquiescence in this plan would
give to the people of the state,,
practical election of senator by di
rect vote. It is in their hands to
say whether or not they want to
select a senator themselves, or leave
it to a legislative mob and all the
disgrace and scandal that method
entails. The primary law places
the senatorship completely in their
hands, if they see fit to reach out
and seize the power it offers them.

On Umbrellas and the Theft of Them
Stealing Prevalent -in Town.
The Times has been requested
to write this essay on the wicked
ness of stealing an umbrella. The
fruit tree has its San Jose scale, the
apple its ' Codlin Moth, and the
owner of an umbrella, his light
fingered friend. A gentleman in
the community loitered for 4. brief
period at the college the other day
and when he came back down
town, he had to buy Hvo new um
brellas. A well known young lady
met with a similar experience on a
similar occasion, save that she only
had one umbrella to buy.
It was William Shakespeare
who said: "He who steals my
purse steals trash, but he who
steals my umbrella is a knock
kneed, low-down skunk," or words
to that effect. Of course it rains
but little in Oregon, and an um
brella is seldom" needed, but when
a gentleman or a lady wants an um
brella, he or she wants it bad. One
has but little use for an umbrella
in Corvallis except to keep the sun
off and save the complexion, but
that is not the business of the um
brella thief. His theft is an un
bearable proceeding, and is not a
joke, but a tragedy.
A certain man in town has offer
ed $20 reward for the apprehension
of any person who steals his um
brella, but it is a well known fact
that he never had an umbrella and
has none now. Several well known
gentlemen about this town always
sport fine umbrellas but never were
known to buy one, and that is what
angers the parties who lost their
parasols at the college. It might
be added that one of the umbrellas
stolen there was shanghaied from a
gentleman who had borrowed it,
and that is where the shoe pinches.
Some persons are childlike enough
to always be believing that they
left their latest umbrella some place
when in fact that was net the way
they lost it a tall a light fingered
friend got it.
The Times inserts advertisements
for "lost" umbrellas at - 25 cents
an issue or three for a half, and lias
been successful in restoring them,

The Empire Theatre Company is
serving a very useful purpose in
presenting to the public a set of
plays selected for the superior con
struction and dialogue that can not
but consciously or unconsciously
foster a taste for strong, sensible
dramatic literature, to which the
intelligent people of this city will,
we feel sure, give unbounded sup
port. The prices are 15, 25 & 35
cents. Reserved seats at the usual

County Exhibit Is in Place in
Court House Makes Fine
When the stranger comes to Cor
vallis now, it will be of interest for
him .to step around to the court
house and see the county exhibit.
There, the resources of the county
are very well illustrated. At a
glanc; C tt be seen in a general way
those things that Benton soil, for
ests, streams, and mountains best
product. Sheaves of grain, long
er thati a man, grasses as fine as
can be grown, samples of wood,
fruit, wool, mohair, vegetables,
game birds and other things of in
terest, all these are in generous
profusion about the room, neatly
displayed, and interesting even to
the old resident of the county.
Those who haven' t seen the dis
play should take the trouble to have
a view of it. It is certain that
there will be revelations even to the
The exhibit 13 permanently
housed in what was formerly the
private office of the county clerk.
The walls are hung to a height of
several feet with black velvet. W.th
this as a back ground, the samples
of sheaf grain are cisplayed, and
the effect is very fine. They rest
on panels of hardwood that formed
the counters in the county exhibit
at the late Lewis and Clark Fair.
A handsome glass case contains
samples of wool and mohair, scour
ed and unscoured. and is a sightly
display. Another glass case is filled
with hottied fruit and bottl-d vege
tables, dried fruits and kindred
specimens. Shelves display glass
jars filled with shelled grains of all
kinds, vegetables, including buck
wheat, corn and other cereals. In
the wood samples are two or three
pieces of curly maple of beautiful
grain. One of these is in the sam
ples provided for the Fair exhibit
by Squire Rycraft and Qaptain Ma
lone "of Alsea Valley, and on which
appear the names of the present of
ficials of Benton. A section of an
oak tree, a foot in diameter, shows
the horns of a deer embedded in its
fibre to a depth of five or Six inches
the growth of the tree having slow
ly enveloped the horns. It is a
freak of nature that came iroai the
McBee 'hiee, and attracted much
.attention at the Fair.
The Benton county school exhib
it is displayed, showing pictures of
domestic animals, maps and other
interesting drawings. It ought to
be n?.ore extensive. Game birds
occupy a prominent place on the
rxiou'dirjg above the sheaf grains.
There are photos of scenes ' in the
county and Corvallis, including the
Corvallis churches and college build
ings. here are many, very many
things for a stranger or a visitor to
see. The exhibit will be kept re
plenished. It will be ready for use
at any time for exhibitions at State
Fairs or otherjindustrial shows.
The Empire Theatre Company
will be remembered as appearing
here last November, when they
made a most favorable impression.
The plays they present are clean
and wholesome, the company num
bers eighteen first-class people, and
they should be well patronized.
