Official Paper of Benton County.
FRIDAY EVENING MAR. 23, 1906.
Jonathan Bourne is advertising
for votes in Benton county. He
wants to be United States senator.
It will be but a very slim support
that he will corrall among Benton
republicans. Their recollection of
Mr. Bourne is that he was the chief
conspirator in concocting a very ex
pensive hold-up legislature, seven
or eight years ago. Because he
could not get a majority of the rep
resentatives to support him for
speaker of the lower house, he
formed a combination to prevent
organization of that body. Allied
with influences hostile to Mitchell,
who was then a candidate for sena
tor, he prevented the organization
of the house, and through forty
long days there was the humiliating
spectacle at Salem of a senate in
session at legislative horse-play
with members of the lower house in
hopeless and disgraceful disorgani
zation. It was the most disgrace
ful episode in the history of the
state, because revolutionary in prin
ciple and anarchistic in execution.
It was a proceeding wholly inde-
fensibleand completely unpardon
able. In the premises, Mr. Bourne
was more guilty than the rest, be
cause by reason of his money and
his brains, more powerful. He
will get small comfort from Benton
republicans, who are themselves
orderly, and therefore entirely un
willing to honor a man who has
been as disorderly, as has Mr
Bourne. In this race for senator
his public record ought to be, and
is, his undoing.
CORVALLIS WATER BONDS
Walea Waha water bonds are
offered for sale in Corvallis. They
bear five per cent, interest, the
same as the Corvallis water bonds.
The Corvallis bond can be refunded
at any time after 10 years, and for
it a bond be substituted bearing a
lower interest rate if the market be
favorable, and this feature makes a
less attractive security to foreign
bond buyers. The fact, however,
that it sold on the same terms in
the market with the Walla Walla
bonds is complimentary to Corval
lis. Especially is this trne, in view

By their refusal to sign Jona
than's petition, it is evident that
Benton republicans do not favor
politics on the harem plan.

WARDE TO COME.
Famous Acta to Appear inCorvall's
Hs Date Is April 13th.
Frederick Warde, the well-kn
Shakesperian scholar and actcj
to come to Corvallis, As all ki
he stands very high in the ream
Shakesperian expression and 1
pretation, having a reputation
that line that extends from ocean
ocean. His coming gives to G
vallisites an opportunity that they
rarely have, to-wit: that of see
in their own town, theatrical attri
tions of the very firrt-class. On al
such occasions in the past, they
have demonstrated their apprecia
tion by attendance and patronage.
The biggest houses that have ever
been seen in the Opera house were
drawn thither by attractions of the
higher class. The town's mental
standard as well as its standard of
taste has always been shown to be
higher than many Oregon towns of
double the population.
Frederick Warde will be an at
traction that all will plan to see.
His date is Friday evening, April
13th. The play to be given has
not been announced. The venture
in bringing Mr. Warde is made by
E. E. Wilson and B. W. Johson, to
whom the public will be indebted
for the privilege of seeing the fam
ous actor in his favorite roles.

The biggest mare ever raised in
Oregon was the famous animal bred
and reared on Mr. King's farm
four and a half years ago. It will
be remembered that she died while
on exhibition at the Fair in Port
land. Her weight was 2,670
ponnds. The day before she died,
her owner, Mr. Todd was offered
$4,000 for her. He refused the of
fer because he had. her on exhibi
tion in a tent and at 10 cents a
sight, was taking in $200 to $300
per day. She died very suddenly
and from unknown causes. Her
symptoms were only noticed a few
minutes before death. She was
observed to roll as if in pain, after
which she got up, and then, within
a few minutes dropped to the
ground so dead that she never even
struggled in the death throes.
She was one of the most remark
able animals ever in the world.
She was only a little over four
years old at the time of her death.
