, At 3:30 this afternoon, the
condition of Prof. Pernot was
slightly better." His temperature
was only 99, and his pulse was
only 108. His malady is not
- the usual form of pneumonia, due
to asthmatic complications. The
crisis which usually comes in seven
days, is said not to have been
reached in his case, though the 1 3th
day has passed.
Thirty five representatives of
the various rural lines centering in
Corvallis held a meeting at the
court house Saturday for a more
perfect organization. Thomas
Cooper was chairman and Mr.
Brush, secretary. There was con
siderable discussion, and a general
expression for a more compact
union. A committee was appoint

laws, with instructions to report at

Benton county is out of debt. It
is probably the only county in Ore
gon in that happy condition.
Three years ago was the first time
the county became debtless since
the memory of man .. runneth not to
the contrary. It paid cash till mid
summer,, and then began - to issue
warrants.""Jrhe next spring, and
last year the last warrant was again
redeemed and cash payments, re
sumed for several month?.' ' Yester
day, Treasurer Buchanan called In
every warrant outstanding, and is
ready with the cash "as fast as they
cm be presented. The condition
looks good to the citizen. It is a
wotthy boast when a stranger vis
its us to be able to say, "the county
is but of debt." -It is'an especially
agreeable thing,' because they can
not say it elsewhere: v If has all

WHEN THEY REMIT.
A well to do farmer from a re
mote corner of the county journey
ed all the way to the sheriff's office
through the cold wave the other
day to pey his taxes. There, he
learned that Sheriff Burnett's lists
were in the hands of four or five
people in his precinct, and that he
might have paid Is taxes there and
have saved the long trip to town.
Complete notice about the lists were
published in both Corvallis papers,

The trip cost him more tliau bcuh

Thursday is the last day for
getting rebates for payment of taxes.
Those who want the three per cent
will have to part with their money
In short order or it will be too late.
Up to yesterday $34,000 had been
collected and turned over to the
treasurer. From Friday noon to
Monday noon 215 people paid,
giving Sheriff Burnett, who doesn't
have deputies, a touch of the stren
uous life. Up to this forenoon,
1,210 receipts had been issued.
' A big tax was paid yesterday
when the receipts were issued for
the Southern Pacific track, rolling
stock and land. The company re
mitted $3,271.30 for the purpose.
The sum was about $30 more than
the amount of the tax, and it was
returned by the sheriff under a
dazed state ot mind as to how a
railroad company could have made
such a break. The company is as
sessed on 11 1-4 miles of road bed;
at $4,000 a mile and 50,000 acres of
land, besides other property.
Get Karnes Mixed With Curious Con
They encounter an occasional
curiosity in the way of checks in
the prpeessrpf tax collecting over at
the sheriff s.pffice. A draft came
from a Portlander yesterday made
payable to, "M. P. Benton." Of
course the" sender meant to write it
M, P. .Burnett," but apparently
got his drinks mixed and wrote
it "Benton" instead of "Burnett."
The draft.was returned to him with
a request that he send one that the
sheriff could cash without cbmmit-
In many an instance in making
out checks the sheriff's name is
badly tnatrgled, running anywhere
from "Bornit" to "Burnit." The
sheriff always indorses with the
name spelled exactly as on the face
of the check, but once when he had
to write hi own noma , 'B o-Di
n-e-t," he nearly swooned away af'
ter executing, the job. His con'
dition was still worse oh another
day when he had to write it, "Bast
Yesterday a check was received
by the sbferiff with everything 611ed
out except the amount. This was
left blank on purpose by the sender
for the sheriff to fill in the amount
of the taxes which he himself did
not know. In fact, several of the
same kind, have been received since
tne taxpaying oegan, one pi wmcn,
that came the other day, had noth'
ing on it but the sender's name.
He left eTVthing - else -to be filled
: in by Sheriff Burnett. The inci
dent illustrates what confidence
j people have in their sheriff.
They Assemble for . Conference Next
Friday Night-Many are Coming.
The gathering of the unterrified
clans occurs at the court house next
Friday evening. The invitation to
attend includes every democrat In
the county. State Committeeman
Johnson particularly urges that ev
ery precinct shall send a delegation.
Not only will matters of aloc; l
character be considered, but things
involved in the state campaign will
be discussed. It will be an all
round pow-wow with every brave
present on an equal footing and
with just as much of authority as
any other warrior in the gathering.
Several of the brethren from the
outside colnmun?ties have already
sent in notice of their purpose to be
present. Willard Price has phoned
in from Kings Valley that he will.
be in with a band of braves.. Matt i
Wllhelm and others at Monroe have
signified an intention to come if
possible, and T. W. B. Smith has
served a similar notice. ..Whether
any of the Alsea warriors will be
00 hand has not been learned, but
argent requests for them to send
oat a delegation have been sent in
to the valley. It goes without say
ing that there will be a good dele
gation from Soap Creek, and a sim
ilar one from Philomath.
The question has been raised
concerning why the meeting is call
ed for the evening, to which State
Committeman Johnson replies that
those who are to come from the
outside precincts will have to re
main over night, and that . there
will be many others who cannot
gparo the time daring the day to at
tend the gathering. The matter
was considered at length and it was
anally concluded that more would
be accommodated by a night ses
sion than at a day meeting. Ask
ed about the proposed conference,
State Committeeman Johnson said:
"Yes, I called the democrats of
Benton county together at the solic
itation of a number of the promi
nent members of the party, snd be
cause I believe it is a good thing to
assemble and discuss matters that
might be bronght before them at

Instead of Fifteen as now Big In-
State Oratorical Contest-Many
? O. A. C. Students There
"The oratorical contest between
the colleges of the state for the cur
refit year is history, and an Albany
man is winner. The event trans
pired in the Presbyterian church at
Albany Friday night, and in the
audience were upwards of 200 stu
dents and others - from Corvallis.
Most' of the 6. A. C. people went
down on the six o'clock train, and
returned on a special . after the con
test. They had by far the largest
delegation and made a very credit
able showing. Prof. Horner, Phys
ical Director Trine and Harry
Beard were the only representatives
of the O. A. C. faculty. .
.The final findings, . in which
Francis Galloway of the State Uni
versity and John Withycombe of O.
A. C. were assigned places near the
foot of the column wasa travesty on
the name of oratory." By this is
not meant that the Albany College
man was not entitled to first place,
for his effort was very good. The
criticized feature is the manner in
which - Galloway and Withycon.be
were thrown down. . : One of the
judges on delivery remarked after
ward that they did not talk enough
prohibition to suit him, which
means doubtless that he was mark
ing not on gesture, rhetorical effect
enunciation and other points of de
livery, but on the subject matter of
the speeches, and on the question of
how it suited his whims. Xnclden
tally it may be said,,, he marked
Withycombe 68 on delivery, while
Prof. Baldwin marked Withycombe
97, giving him -first place.
A more strikingly absurd propo
sition however, is, that the other
judge on ' delivery marked Withy
combe 49. With one judge mart
ing at 49 the ; same effort that, an
other one graded at 97, the decision
simply ..takes, on . the. character of
the absurd, wholly and completely
Of course,-in the very nature of
things judges will differ to a rea
son able degree, because of the taste
of each with reference to style of
delivery -and . composition. ' But,
when a grade of 49 was given to
Withycombe the extreme limit of
the nonsensical was reached b! a

will meet with the general approval
of the democrats of the county, for
there Is no rivalry for office in the
ranks and no special differences of
opinion. Every democrat in the
county is invited to be present, and
as there are no political slates to be
broken or bidden mysteries to be

the meeting will be harmonious and
