THE DATE CHANGED.
Attorney I,ee Paget and son of
Portland were in Corvallis from
Saturday until Monday. During
their sojourn they paid a visit to
the college, and were greatly inter
ested in what they saw there. Sun
day morning, Mr. Paget, who is
an active member of the Laymen's

spoke at that church in this city.

The fourth- relief car from Ben
. ton, left the C; & E. station for San
Francisco Saturday night. It con
sisted of bacon, potatoes, eggs, oats,
baled hay and other farm products.
Nearly the whole of the car was
contributed by Benton farmers. A
particular section that was most
liberal in donations was the Fair
mount and Soap Creek neighbor
hoods. About three tons of stuff
came from farmers in that locality.
There is a new manager of the
C & E. railroad, vice T. H. Curtis
resigned. He is Guy W. Talbot,
recently manager of a rail road at
Peoria, Illinois. Mr. Curtis, who
has been with the Hammond roads
for some time, has resigned to go
into business for himself. Mr. Tal
bot is to represent the same inter
ests, and his appointment to the
place is without significance. He
is only about 30 years of age, being
one of the youngest railroad mana
gers in the'eountry. - '
A two manual, pedal pipe or
gan has been installed in College
chapel yesterday. Prof. Talllandier
is bringing this instrument to Cor

be used only for concert pmrposes.
Prof. Taillandier announces an or
gan recital to be given on Friday,
May 25tk at 8:30 o'clock. Tickets
will be 50 cents each as the expense
for getting the instrument is con
siderable and the total cost for
rental, transportation, insurance,
setting up, etc., will be nearly one
hundred dollars. The organ is
practically new, having been in use
only a very few months. Full par
ticulars will be given later.

more than one fourth and possibly
not more than a fifth remains
standing. The-suffering and hor
ror through which the San Fran
ciscans passed were such that many
of them will leave the place forever
unwilling; to hazard the chance of
another similar experience. There
is an undercurrent of feeling that
does not find expression in the
newspapers which causes some of
those who hear expression of it to
doubt it the city will ever rise to
anything near its former glory. An
epidemic is another possible horror
yet to be reckoned with, and fear
of it is driving thousands in search
of new homes elsewhere. Many
of the sewers of the city are dis
placed as a result of the earthquake
and it will take months to restore
the drainage system to a condition
Still another ever-present danger
for the time is tne presence of thugs
and ghouls, who await every op
portunity for pillage and plunder.
The act of nature that plunged the
city into ruins and the sight of its
consequences, seemed to unloose
all the ferocity of the underworld,
and realizing chat opportunity for
murder and robbery was at hand,
the bloody hand is everywhere. In
the ruins there will be found a
great deal of melted gold and "silver
and the opportunity to seize . and
make off with it is awaited. But

"It is everywhere ruins, ruins,
ruins," said Mr. Kline. '"No picture
can be painted so desolate. The
one redeeming feature is that the
survival of the Call building shows
that structures can be built that,
will withstand both earthquake and
fire, and that is the best hope for a
new city of San Francisco. Though
22 stories high, the Call building
with its steel frame and stone walls
intact stands as majestic as ever,
having been, of course, gutted by

Mutual Savings bank building, 12

DEAD HORSE THERE.
Is in the Stream Short Distance
up Mary's River Farmer
Tells of it.
A farmer in town yesterday
brought the unwelcome information
that there is a dead horse in Mary's
river at a point two or three miles
above its junction with the Wil
lamette. The farmer says tne car
cass has been there several weeks
and that it is badly swollen. The
decomposition is so great that it is
very offensive to those who pass
along the road in the vicinity, it
ought to be somebody's business to
go up there and remove tne carcass
from the stream, as well as to bury
it. The streams are now getting
toward their low stage and it is
wrone for the drainage from this
putrid carcass 4o be flowing into
the local water pipes and thence in
to homes for domestic use.
The incident? ought, by all means
to suggest the withdrawal of the
injunction suits against the. moun
tain water system and the substitu
tion in place of them suits for dam
age by those who will be damaged
by the taking of water from Rock
Creek. In suits for damage, both
plaintiffs in the injunction cases
have a complete remedy, without a
resort to injunction proceedings.
With dead .horse carcasses contam
inating the present Vc1irce of water
supply, it wduld look like all's Vnol?

from Rock Creek, beyond the point
where there is possibility of contam
