The morphine is understood to have been administered to the late Chas. Tower at the poor house. 0. A. C Cadet Rcg'ment And Made a Speech In Chapel What he Said. 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.

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.

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 the union. "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."
