; TWO INDICTMENTS.
After a five days session, the

and - was discharged, following

ment was returned charging W. H.
James with libel. He is the man
mentioned by the Times as having

G. W. Parker. The charge ' of
libel is based on the article he
wrote about Parker.

Campbell, who are charged with
giving morphine without a license
and without being a physician. The
morphine is understood to have
been administered to the late Chas.

0. A. C Cadet Rcg'ment And Made a
Speech In Chapel What he
Upon invitation of the president,
Dovernor Chamberlain today re
viewed the Oregon Agricultural
College cadets and addressed the
entire student body with many vis
itors from the town. In spite ot
the disagreeable weather, several
hundred spectators witnessed the
various evolutions of the College
cadets. The governor, accompan
ied by President Gatch, Dr. Withy
combe and Major Edwards, took
much pleasure in watching the
regiment throughout the review.
At ten o'clock College cbapel was
crowded with students and visitors
so that standing room could no
longer be obtained on the stairways
in the adjacent halls. Following
the regular morning devotions,
two selections by , the Bach quar
tette, consisting of B. W. Johnson,
John Allen, Ottd Herse and Prof.
Fulton. President Gatch introduc
ed Governor Chamberlain as the
chief executive 01 Oregon and as
an alumnus of Washington-Lee
University. After words of praise
for the college, he imparted much
good advice to the student body,
frequently referring to President
Roosevelt as America's model of
fearless integrity. During the ad
dress of twenty minutes he was
roundly applauded repeatedly; and
at the close of the exercises, the en
tire student body gave nine rahs for
governor Chamberlain. In part
his address was:
the governor's address.
THE LAST DAY.
For State and District Candidates to
File The District Judgship.
It looks very much like Judge
Harris would have to trot alone in
the race for circuit judge in this
district. Today was the last day
for filing nominations, for state and
distnet offices, and up to noon no
information had been received to
the effect that a competitor either
for the nomination, or a rival on
the democratic ticket had come to
the front. The office is open to
any lawyer that is resident of one
of the six counties that comprise
the district. It was planned once
to hare the extra judge a resident
of either Lane, Benton and Lincoln
but for some reason the bill did not
pass the legislature in that way.
It is probable however, that no res
ident of other than the three latter
counties would seek the nomina
tion. It is also probable that Lane,
Benton and Lincoln will be cut off
from the second and be made a sep
arate district by the next legisla
ture, in which event a new office of
district attorney will be created.
It is understood that there is plenty
of work for the extra judge, and
that since the office was created,
Judge Harris' time, has been whol
ly employed with courts and cases.

As commander-in chief of the
Oregon National Guard, it afford
ed me great gratification to review
your battalion. I say without
disparagement to any institution,
that I have nevar seen so large a
body of men so well trained, phy
sically and so thoroughly in the arts
of a soldier. In common with oth
er citizens of the stste, I am proud
of the progress you have made and
congratulate you upon your mag
nificent showing as soldiers. Your
training along military lines is for
two purposes; first, so that our com
mon-wealth and country may . be
able to rely with confidence upon
the trained soldiery, and second,
but by no means least, in --order
that you may thereby develop phy
sically, because without a strong
body it is difficult to maintain , a
a strong mind, and I am sure that
good results will follow from the
efforts you are making.
"In common with the people of
the state, I am proud of you, and I
am proud that we are citizens ot
one of the most magnificent com
monwealths When we read the
history of Thomas Tefferson. who
while yet a minister of Paris, morel
than 100 years., ago, and of his de
termination to send out to this'
coast as emissaries, Lewis & Clark,
with a letter of credit against the
world; when we read of the hard
ships encountered by our men and
women, yonr ancestors; when we
read of the straggle instituted at
Champoeg in 1843 and the part
played by Joseph Meek and the
sole survivor of that honorable band
F. X. Matien. when it decided Ore
gon to be a part of American soil,
when we read of all this and the
hardships endured by those who
have preceded us.it seems like
an epic poem and is more like ro
mance than history.
"There is everything - here to in
spire you to higher aims and am
bitions. Off to the right and left
are magnificent valleys, schools and
churches on every hillside; higher
upon sides stand splendid forests
and above them the snow capped
peaks. .-, All these things while ad
ding to the beauty of the 'state do
not constitute a state; it is citizen
ship that makes it great and this
institution of yours is engaged in a
work that will do more than any
other factor to teach our people to
strive for higher ideals in public
and, private work.
PRAISE FOR ROOSEVEIT
The time is not far distant when
you, young gentlemen, the students
of this splendid institution, must
assume the affairs of government
and it is your duty to study the life
and character of those men who
have done and who are doing so
much for uplifting citizenship in
puplic life. And first let me say
that our President, Theodore
Roosevelt, has done more the last
few years to lift the standard of cit
izenship than any other person.
He has made it the text of his
speeches and of his life to teach
that the public office is a public
trust and to punish those who are
delinquent in the discharge of their
duty. j - - ? - -
Then too, Joseph W, Folk sever
al years ago started a movement to
pnrify the government offices that
is to be followed by others. He
punished those who betrayed their
trust as they should be and they
were lodged behind prison bars.
As a result of his work, the people
of his State have honored him by
making , him their chief executive.
And so others might be named.
1 be time is not far distant when
all will come to realize that no man
can be dishonest and not be detect
ed by those who have honored him
in the conduct of their affairs. I
might call attention to innumer
able instances to show that delin
quency in office is not confined to
any. party; a rascal in politics is a
Democrat in a democratic commun
ity and a Republican in a republi
can commnnity. He knows no rite
of political faith and honor.
PEOPLE MUST LEGISLATE
''In thU connection I wiBb to call
your attention to the fact that Ore
gon is a pioneer . in public legisla
tion. Tne time bas b-tn when the
responsibility of legislation r eted
upon the legislaurt; that responsi
bility no longer rests upoa legisla
tive bodies; but the p ople an un
do laws they make ae ihey can veto
any mea&ure that neets tbeir diap
proval. In other words, the people
are the legislators and can de
fend their interest. Thus the pur
pose of this institution is to teacb
you not only the proper methods of
raising the varied crops that Oregon
soil produces most bountifully, but
to teach you as well to strive for lof
tier and better and bigber citizen
ship so that when the responsibili
ties ci which I have epoken rest up
on yonr shoulders, yon will not on
ly know bow to administer affaire,
but you will administer them faith
fully and well. I know those who
havethe Interests of the Oregon Agii
cultural College at heart, have also
at heart your welfare and are striv
ing in their instruction to make yon
better and help to place our state in
the first rank of the great states of
"I congratulate your distinguished
president and his splendid corps of
assistants, who compose the facul
ty ottnis institution: and in con
clusion let me bid you God speed in
the splendid work you are doing
for the people of the state and the
advancement of its best interests."
