Corvallis Times CORVALLIS, OREGON, "TUESDAY EVENING MAY , 1906. FROM ALBANY NOW. Transmission Wire Completed and Current Turned on. THE OREGON EXPERIENCE. 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. OYSTERS FROM JAPAN. 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 night. 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 Will try to Grow Them at Yaquina Shipment Receiv ed for that Purpose. . voltage of only 1,700 is. electrocuting criminals. used in THE BENTON EXPERIENCE. 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. . .

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.

HOistri, Sheriff ot Benton County, Oregon. 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. CHOLiEKA infantum.
