The Big Christian Endeavor Conven
The great Christian Endeavor
convention that for four days held
forth in Corvallis, is history. On ,
the early trains yesterday the dele-!
gates departed for their homes, j
there to put into practice the les- j
sons and ideas obtained from the ;
splendid sessions at which so many j
bright minds were present, and
where so many helpful things were
said. From every standpoint, the
convention was a success, a fact
that was largely due to the minis
ters of the city who had the matter
of arrangement in charge, and who
labored to make all things work to
gether that harmony might pre-!
At the First Methodist . church
Friday evening, an immense au
dience was present to hear the ex
cellent report of Field Secretary
Sharp, of Portland, and the excel-
ent address on ' 'The Abundant
Life" that was delivered by Rev.
Muckley. of the First Christian
church of Portland. A iadeJ
Chorus under the direction of Mrs.
E. F. Green, and a vocal solo by
Dr. Cathey added to the pleasure
of the occasion.
vThe sessions Saturday were held
in the Presbyterian church, the
afternoon being largely devoted to
visiting the college and showing
the visitors around the city. Sat
urday night the reception at the
Armory was one of the happy ev
ents of the week, probably 700 peo
ple being present. Excellent mu
sic was furnished by Turney's or
chestra, punch was served to all,
and at the conclusion of the affair,
everyone was presented with a
Bouvenir pennant, on which was
an OAC monogram and the words,
"Corvallis Oregon." TheArmory
was beautifully decorated with En
deavor mottoes, festoons of crepe
paper and bunting, and as the
crowd moved hither and thither,
the room presented a scene of bril
liancy. Sunday morning, after a prayer
service, the visitors attended Sun
day school at the various churches,
and at 11 o'clock the local pulpits
were filled by the visiting clergy
men as follows: Presbyterian,
Rev. A. A. Winter, of Portland ;
Congregational Emery Dye, Oregon
City; United Evangelical. Rev.
Comack; Chiistian, Rev. Ella
Humbert, Eugene; First Method
ist, Rev. Wiliiam Bell, of Berkeley,
At the Junior Rally held at three
o'clock Sunday afternoon, Mrs.
Commerford of Goldendale, Wash,
gave an interesting talk. Bishop
Bell also addressed the College Y.
M. C. A. at the same hour.
Sunday evening was spent in
attending the regular Endeavor
meetings until the closing meeting
began at the Armory at 7 :4s, when
the building was fiiled, and every
one listened with keenest apprecia
tion to the talk by Field Secretary
Sharp, and the powerful and im
pressive sermon by Bishop Bell. A
mixed chorus and the college or
chestra furnished music. Rev.
Hurd had charge of the singing.
A feature of the closing minutes
of the convention was the reading
and adoption of the resolutions
drafted by the committee, in which
it was resolved that the sympathy
of the convention be extended to
Eugene in this time, of trouble, the
prayer of the assembly being that"
the scourge may soon be lifted
from that city. Thanks were ex
tended to the citizens, churches and
college of Corvallis, for the splend
id welorne extended the convention;
Corvallis was congratulated on hav
driven from her midst the saloons
and 'blind tiger" and the Endeav
orers pledged themselves to aid in
every way possible and in every
section where they might be sit

business, and the abolishment of
the liquor, traffic. This resolution
elicited much applause from the au

SUSTAINED THE VETO.
v.otiacu did Beet Urdinance is not to I
go Into Effect.
Mayor Johnson's veto of the beef
ordinance was presented to the
council at a special meeting last
night. As was recently explained
in the Times, the ordinance placed
a tax of $15 per day on the ped
dling of beef, mutton or pork in
Cdrvallis. The members of the
council voted to sustain the veto.
The veto message is as follows;
"I beg to herewith return ordin
ance bill number 190 as passed by
you at a meeting held on Feb
ruary 12, 1906, without my approv
al. I submit as reasons for its non-
approval that beef, mutton and
pork are without question a prod-
duct of the farm hence it is beyond
our power to except such products
as the ordinance attempts to do;
in as much as our state law and the
decisions of the courts are to the
effect, that no county or municipal
lty can license the sole of our farm
and garden products and I submit
that it would not be prudent to do
so, even were we permitted so to do;
as the success of our merchants and
the upbuilding of our city depends
very largely upon the co-operation
with and successful operations of,
our farmers hereabout. Too, I un
derstand that it was not the inten
tion of a single member of your
Honorable Body to prevent fhe sale
of such products by the actual grow
er thereof, but rather to prevent an
outsider from purchasing, killing
and peddling the same, and this I
think you will find to be covered by
the ordinance now upon our ordin
"So I return said ordinance No.
190 herewith, with my veto.
A. J. Johnson.
