TRIDAY EVENING MAY 4, 1906,
The official canvass of the prim
ary election returns was made by
the secretary of state yesterday.
For governor on the republican
ticket, 43,096 votes were cast, of
which Dr. Withy combe got a plural
ity over Geer of 263. Johns go
7,879 votes, Brown, 5,298 and
Selhbrede, 1,832. Bourne's plural
ity over Cake was 625, Benson's
over Gatch, 1,446. Hawley's
plurality over Tooze Vas 883, his
vote being 8,295. The vote of
Huston, whom Benton gave such
a handsome testimonial, even
against a native born Benton coun
ty man, was only 4,712.
Laborers are in great demand at
$2.50 per day for the construction
of the Corvallis mountain wate
works, but in spite of that and many
other inviting calls for his service,
Outlaw Smith broke into a store at
Troutdale to steal a few articles of
minor value and killed three men
and got killed as a sequel to the
transaction. Half the energy he
expended and the tribulation he
passed through in his last days
would by honest toil have bought
most of the Troutdale store for
Smith, and therein is a sermon in
behalf of industry eloquent beyond

THE BOTTOM OUT.
Cascara Market Three
Years' Supply of Bark
The chittim-peeling season is on
and there are inquiries as to prices.
Present indications are not at all pro
mising, is what a local dealer said
today. Two and a half to three cents
is the best price possible in Corval
lis now, and that is the Portland
price. There is a big surplus of
the bark on hand, and until it is
consumed in large part high figures
will not again rule. The story of
the situation is well told in the fol
lowing from the Oregonian of
Cascara bark is again being offer
ed rather freely, but theie is almost
no market at ail for it. The lead
ing dealers quote prices nominally
at two and two and a half cents
for new and two and a half and
three cents for old bark. The he?vy
unsold surplus is what depresses
the market, as about three years'
supply still remains on hand. Until
this accumulation is worked off.
there can be no material improve l -
ment in price, and the surplus is
not going to be reduced as long
as peeling, continues. If -no
bark were peeled for two or three
years it would not only give a
chance for the market to advance
again, but the bark would also be
much heavier by that time.
A Philomath correspondent
says: A construction crew under
the supervision of Assistant En
gineer Bogue, is engaged in placing
along Main street, the laterals and
hydrants which have been provided
by the city council to attach to the
Corvallis water conduit. With four
hydrants stationed at convenient'
intervals, and six hundred feet ot
hose to play a stream on the col
lege, any business house, and , at.
least half of the residences . of the
city can be"rea;hed with - water '. in
case of fire.- - It Jis doubtful if there
is another town in Oregon that ever
had a water system brought right
to its streets without expending a
dollar for subsidizing the -project.

TWO BIG LINES.
Of Telephone Added to Local
System Newport and
Two new lines of telephone have
been added to the local Independ
ent system. One is the Kings
Valley Summit line, which was
connected up with the local Inde
pendent office . Tuesday evening.
It is called the Summit Telephone
Company- The rates for toll mes
sages have not been fixed, and will
not be until theie is a meeting of
stockholders, many of whom are
Corvallis business men.
The other line is the Yaquina
Bay Mutual Telephone . and Im
provement Company's cdTarercial
wire, which was brought to the
city limits Tuesday evening and
which is being connected up with
the local Independent office today.
It comes from Newport via Toledo,
Elk City, Eddy ville. Sum
mit and Blodgett, i following
the Card well hill road toCorvaliis.
At various points the company has
switchboards to connect local lines
to the trunk line, giving direct
service to remote districts, , where
telephone a few years ago was not
dreamed of. The company was or
ganized about a year ago in Lincoln
county and its principal stockhold
ers are Lincoln and Benton people.
They are operating about 100 miles
of line and are continually adding
to lines and equipment. The
completion of this line gives tele
phone service to Newport which
will be a great convenience to the
people of Corvallis and other valley
towns during the summer season.
A. T. Peterson, of Toledo, is sec
retary of the company.
The building of the line has been
under the direction of John Hewitt,
who has had a foree of seven men
most of the time. Construction
operations began at Newport July
20th, last year and Summit was
reached in September. Work was
resumed at Summit March 20th,
and the city limits of Corvallis was
reached last Tuesday. The rates
for toll have not been fixed.
APPRECIATES THE KINDNESS.
Letter from a Beneficiary of Corvallis
. ' Ladies' Aid. "
In a letter to Mrs. M. A. Can
an, a sufferer from the San Fran.
tisco disaster acknowledged the re
lief afforded, in the way of clothing.
by Corvallis ladies. The letter
gives evidence of due appreciation
of the kindness shown the San
Franciscans in tme of need, and is
calculated to further stimulate the
effort to relieve those who lost their
all in the great disaster. The letter
is as follows:
San Francisco, April 30. .
Dear Mrs. Cannon;
I found your card among
things that . were sent to the S. F.
sufferers, and as I am one of them
I want to thank you for whatever
you sent, whether it is the waist on
my back or something else." You
have helped in our distress and may
you never experience the distress
and feeling that we have gone
through. As this is the only card
I found, I can onlv thank vou. but
you can extend our thanks to any
one else who was as kind. We
were driven , out by the fire, after
which our house was blown up,
On the hill we suffered intensely
from pouring rain and the want of
necessaries. We had two shocks
last night and we live in dread of
others. We have been through it
all.. We are all so thankful to such
May God bless you and
yours. Again thanking you, I am

HOW THEY POISON.
Why Canned Goods Some
times Kill People Some-,
thing to be Avoided.
The importance of not buvine
canned goods which have been re
processed is a subject treated in de
tail in a recent bulletin on "Can
ning" by Prof. Pernot. The way
to tell that the goods have been re
processed is explained in the article.
1 he purpose of heating fruit to
be canned is to kill the spores or
germs, which if left undestroyed
cause fermentation. Atemperature
of 240 degrees is usually ' resorted
to fortius purpose. Prof Pernot
has however, discovered and point-'
ed out in his bulletin that more that
one heating is necessary and that
lower temperature may be used,
which lower temperature prevents
destructton of the fiber. He uses
three applications of heat. If all
the spores are not destroyed in the
first htat, the grow and fermenta
tion quickly begins. The canning
people watch for this fermentation,
the usual sign being a swelling of
the can. It is then that a small
hole is, punched through the top
of the can to ease the pressure from
the inside. The buyer can always
tell when this has been done, be
cause a small drop of solder is ap
plied to close the hole, and by
watching for it, can always see it
on the top .of the can. Its presence
there is a sure sign that after can
ning, the trutt has started to spoil,
and that it has been re-processed.
That in turn means that there is
danger inside the can, for fruit so
re-processed is very liable to have
developed ptomain poison, which
poison is dangerous and many timss
fatal to human life. In the camp
where. E. E. .Cooper remained for
two days during the recent burning
of San Francisco, 200 people were
poisoned by eating canned goods,
and several deaths ensued. It ' is
for these reasons that canned goods
with an extra drop of solder on the
top of the can should be avoided.
Prof. Pernot's bulletin, in which
the above is only incidental has
attracted wide Pttention. Among
letters received from far and wide
as a result of the bulletin was one
the other day from a big can-making
establishment at Rutland, Ver
mont, in which the writers state
that the announcement only cor
roborates a surmise they 1 have for
a long time held.
AS TO BEEF.
Steers are High Priced now
Five Cents in Portland
for top Stuff.
The present excellent prices for
beef cattle are encouraging to stock
men. ' Top beef is worth five cents
in Portland which would be equal
to lour and a halt here. I here is
little or no such beef in this local
ity however, says a local grower.
but the best steers of the vicinity
ought to bring something like four
and a quarter cents. A good ani
mal at that figure ought to yield
its owner very close to $50. A
well known stockman whohas such
beef, and which he will turn off in
about two weeks, bought his steers
about this time last year at $20 per
head. The contrast in price is
very marked. Cattle have been very
low for a couple of years, but it
looks now as if the reactionary fig
ure had set in." There is prospect
that in a little while there would be
a packing house in Portland, which
oufiht to mean a steady market and
an inexhaustible rnarket for beef,
pork and mutton 'for all time, after
which the low prices of the past
months ought to become unknown
