Transmission Wire Completed
and Current Turned on.
Most of the newspapers in
the state profess to believe that
the new orimarv election law has
been demonstrated to be a howling
success. Perhaps it has, though
some of the results tend to discredit
that view. It has certainly demon
strated that personal fitnessand mer
it are not so valuable assets in se
curing a nomination as are organ
ization and dollars. It is notorious
that on nominating day, the farm
ing population was largely at sea on
the question of what candidates to
support. The same conditions,
in perhaps a less degree, was not
ably true of urban electors. It was
then and there that the organizption
promoted by use of money in secur
ing workers at the polls and other
wise had a tellmgeffect. This
luxury the less wealthy candidate
could not afford. In more than
one instance on state offices the
lack of it is believed to have chang
ed the result.
Analysis of the primary campaign
and its outcome shows beyond
.question that it cost every candi
date a large sum of money, that the
man who spent the least money
-was handicapped, that there will
always be times and instances
"where the nomination will depend
on the amount of money spent,
that on the whole money is a better
asset for getting a nomination than
is merit, and that the boss, through
his superior organization, ran prob
ably accomplish more in controlling
' the outcome than he did under the
convention system. The state is
- to an expense of many thousands
. of dollars, and as far as can be seen
the tickets are no better,, though
probably no worse than would have
been evolved by conventions. That
the law from a partisan standpoint
is a good thing for the democrats
is crtain. J. n at it will remain in
: effect is entirely likely, because
having once felt the new nominal
ing power, the electors will not be
willing to give it up.
The wheels at the electric light
plant stood still last night. They
are not not to run anymore in Cor
vallis. rney nave been in service
in supplying Corvallis with light
for something like twenty years,
but their usefulness here is ended
In a few days, the work of dis
mantling them will begin, after
which they will be shipped to Sea
side, where the work laid down by
them here is to be taken up there. I
The changed conditions are due
to the fact that .Corvallis electric
lights are now made by power
rom the Santiam ditch. A -new
generator was recently installed in
the Albany plant for the Corvallis
service, and a transmission line has
been under construction for several
weeks. It was connected up yes
terday noon, and the current was
turned on at one o clock in the af
ternoon. The lights were all on
thronghout the afternoon in order to
give the electricians opportunity to
djust things. The transmission
wire brings in a voltage ot 2,200
while the plants voltage was only
,100 which made readjustments
necessary, tiven wun precautions,
half a dozen arc lights in the south
ern and central portion of town
were burned out. They will all be
repaired and in service tomorrow
The transmission wire consists ot
three aluminum cables of seven
strands each. One wire is at the
top of the pole and the other two
are at either end of a five foot cross
arm three feet below. The usual
transmission wire is of copper, but
copper is 28 cents a pound now
30 miles of cable at that figure
comes high and the aluminum is
resorted to. The latter answers all
purposes, but permits a larger loss
of current m the process of trans
mission. As soon as transformers
and switchboards arrive, 10,000
volts of current will be brought ov
er the transmission wire into Cor
vallis. That will mean for every
body to keep hands off for it would
be instant death to touch a live
wire carrying 10,000 voltage

They say the primary election
law is a good thing. Undoubtedly
those who put up the job that de
feated William Jolly for the nom
ination think so. He is a good
man and had lots of friends who
wanted him renominated, but the
jobbers knew the trick by which to
let him down and didn't hesitate
to spring the trap.
In the same way they took vote
from Hawley and gave them to
former democrat to such an extent
that a man actually born and reared
within its limits scarcely got a plur
ality of the votes of the county.
As to the others who got railroaded
our of nomination by the combine,
each probably knows in what part
of the neck he got the axe, and
just what was the influence that
put it there.
If the primary law were given a
fair trial and voters were left frea
t act on their own information,
as the framers of the law contem
plated, it would doubtless work all
right. It would then give a fair
test of the party sentiment. But.
when by secret agreement, as was
the case in Benton, certain candi
dates agree to stand by each other
to down others, and when good men
are sacrificed by tricks of jugglery
and jobbery, the law cannot be said
to be universally satisfactory; Ex
perience here has demonstrated that
it is as easy to be unfair under its
operation as under the convention
system. . .

M. M. Davis is planting Japanese
oysters in Yaquina Bay for experi
ment. Thirty boxes of the bi
valves, eacn dox weighing 250
pounds, passed over the C. & -E
Saturday, and were planted in the
Davis beds near Oysterville the
same evening. The oysters are of
large size, measuring from four to
1 inches in length and four to five
inches in width and are two years
old and over. They came from a
remote part of Japan, and two weeks
after being packed in the. boxes,
reached Yokohama, where they
were immediately transferred to the
steamer Nicomedia and brought to
Portland. The Japanese oysters,
says the Albany Herald, like those
native of the Pacific Coast, live and
multiply in cold water where the
Eastern oysters cannot increase.
Many of the oysters in the boxes
re dead owing to the long time
they had been out of water. When
ordered by Dr. Davis the instruc
tions were to take them from the
beds to ..Yokohama, there to be
placed in the water over one steam
er so as to revive them after being
out of water for two weeks before
they were shipped across the Pa
cific. But this order was ignored
and the oysters on arrival in Yoko
hama were immediately placed on
the Nicomedia;. . hence when the
shipment reached here yesterday
many of the oysters, especially the
large ones, were dead. Dr. Davis
was here to tranship them and - ac
companied the shipmentto the bay,
Dr.. Davis and associates have for
several years shipped out Eastern
oysters to Yaquina Bay in carload
ots and planted them on their ex
tensive oyster beds, and these are
naw beginning to be profitable to
them, but thus far there is no sign
of propagation ot the Eastern . bi
valves thus transplanted, owing
doubtless, to the cold water of the
Pacific. More of the Eastern oyster
seed will be sent out however, and
rthe supply be kept up in this way
for the present. Another ' carload
nom Narragansett Bay is now being
loaded and will reach Yaquina in
sbout two weeks to be planted in
the beds of Dr. Davis.
The oysters planted ; two years
ago will be ready for the market
next winter, and it is expected that
a large part of the trade of this
part of the state will be supplied
from Yaquina when the beds there
begin to produce the Eastern oysters
in quantities as expected. These
Eastern oysters planted in Yaquina
cay, while they grow to as large a
size in the East, take on the pecu
liarly rich flavor of the native oysters
and are a great improvement on the
genuine Eastern oyster, and for
that reason very much more palat
able. It is expected that When the
Eastern bivalve is once placed on
the market in large quantities
will be the most valued of all
bivalves to be found.

There are signs that the Creffleld
campingpropositioa at Waldport has
miscarried. Two of those who
started for the rendezvous recently
arrived in Corvallis yesterday, and
a third passed out to Albany on
today's train. Creffidd himself, is
said to have been two or three
days at the camp and he then dis
appeared and has not since been
seen. The belief is that all the
others will within a short time, re
turn to their homes, and that Cref-
! field will go "elsewhere to carry put
nis devilish enterprise.
People familiar with the situation
are convinced that the residents of
the vicinity of the camp turned out
to be hostile totheundetaking, and
through fear of bodily harm, Cref
field abandoned his plans. Mrs.
Starr who deserted a seven months
baby and another small child in
Portland Saturday to join theparty
is said to be in Alsea. She arrived
here Sunday and is supposed to
have traveledmost of the way to Al
seaon foot. A story of her desertion
of her home and children appears
in last night's Portland Journal.
Creffield tells his dupes now that
he cursed San Francisco and that
is why the western metropolis is in
ruins, and that he has a similar
curse on Portland and Corvallis.
The redeeming feature of the
primary law is Statement Number
I. In principle, it is right, and in
the end, if Oregon voters are what
they ought to be, it will triumph.
Its first time in practice may have
its drawbacks, but there is only one
Bourne and probably he will not be
on hand to fret and fresco voters in
the next election. Then it will be
Charles Fulton, and those who now
condemn Statement Number i,
will extol it to the heavens.
