ONE SUIT WITHDRAWN
' .Other to be Heard Tomorrow
Jerry Henkle and Water
One of the iniunction suits
brought against the mountain wat
er system -is to be dismissed. It is
-the one in which Jerry Henkle of
Philomath, is the plaintiff, and
-which will on the motion of Mr.
HenkJe's attorneys be dismissed
without cost to either, party. Pa
spers to this effect were signed by
Mr. Henkle at a special meeting of
the Water Board held in the coun--cil
chamber Tuesday evening.
The withdrawal of the suit is the
-result of a compromise between Mr.
Henkle and the Water Board. Ne
gotiations between the plaintiff and
the sub-committee of the Board be
: gan several days ago, whenthesub
committee journeyed to Philomath
and tendered Mr. Henkle $700 in
cash as payment for such damages
as he would sustain by the removal
of such water from Rock Creek. The
'-:3noney, which was in currency,
was laid down on the counter in Mr.
Henkle' s store.
The reply 01 Mr. Henkle was
;that he was acting under the di
rection ot his attorneys, and that he
would not accept without consulta
tion with them. That was on Sat
urday, and on Monday Mr. Henkle
'visited Corvallis. He discussed
the matter with various members
-of the Water Board. He
returned home and on Tuesday,
notified the sub-committee of ' his
-determination to accept, and to
have the papers ready to be signed
the same evening.
After the papers were all signed.
Mr, Henkle m-ide a siatement be
-fore the committee saving that the
sum was totally inadequate to pay
the damages he will actually sus
tain by removal of the water. He
felt the water system, however to
be of inestimable vilue not only to
Corvallis but to Philomath. He
felt that it would be wrong to take
-any action that would withhold
this water from the people of Cor
'vallis. .Therefore, he has made a

- J. T. YATES,
The republican state campaign
opened at CoTvallis Tuesday night,
wilh an unusually large demonstra
tion.. It was one of the largest
political meetings that has been
held in Corvallis in several years.
Many of the state candidates of the
republican party were present, and
several of them made addresses.
The chief speaker of course, was
Dr. Withycombe. for the launching
of whose campaign the meeting was
especially planned. The presiding
officer was Mr. Westgate, the .ac
complished editor of the Albany
Herald, and state chairman of the
party. Decorations of very fine
artistic mould, with Cecil Cathey
as the artist, was a-feature pf more
than passing importance. The
numerical feature pf the attendance
was not less conspicuous, : all the
extra c airs provided being filled,
with standing room still at a pre
mium. Many ladies and college
boys and girls were in the audience
College yells, called .for, by the
chairman, added interest to the
proceedings. The firing of anvils
and music by the OAC; cadet regi
mental band heralded the meeting,
and music by a quartette composed
of Messrs Fulton,. Cathey, Allen
and Johnson was a feature of the
On the platform were many states
men, local and otherwise. Among
those from abroad, beside the
speakers were State Superintend
ent Ackerman, Judge Eakin of
Eastern Oregon. Editor Hofer of
ths Salem Capital Journal, besides
many Albany and Independence
republicans. The Albany, Salem,
Independence and Dallas people
were brought by special trains,
which carried their passengers home
after, the meeting. Very few re
mained overuniil morning, but.ot
course it was not because Corvallis
is a dry town, the visitors being
republicans. Among local citizens
on the platform were Hon. G. A.
Waggoner, Rev. T. T. Vincent,
Hon. S. L. Kline and Hon. J. O.
The chief address of the evening
was by Dr. Withycombe. At tha
request of the chairman, the audi
ence stood and gave three cheers
for Dr. Withycombe and the whole
republican ticket as the gubernator
ial candidate was introduced. It
was a very pretty reception to Dr
Withycombe, as well as the other
state candidates present.
Speeches were also made by Mr.
Mulkey. the short term candidate
for senator, who declared that his
father and grandfather were origin
al Benton county people and that
when he was receiving the election
returns he tu ned first to see if
Mulkey had been given a good vote
in Benton. His speech was reple-e
with witty remarks, but it had the
misfortune of being too long and
many left the room before and im
mediately after he concluded. The
other speakers were Frank W. Ben
son of Roseburg, candidate for sec
retary of state, and Mr. Hoff, nom
inee for labor commissioner. The
meeting from all standpoints w.s
very creditable, and Bert John
son, George Denman, and the other
local leaders who planned it are en
titled to the thanks of their party,
personal sacrifice, and has accepted
in his opinion, a sum less by $1,000
or more than he would actually be
damaged. This sacrifice, however,
he felt willing to make for the bene
fit of the people of the two towns
' It is to be added, that from the
first, Mr. Henkle has sought to
settle by negotiation, rather than
by suit, the differences between him
and the committee. He began sev
eral months ago to ask for offers
from the Board, and by other means
endeavored to avoid litigation. His
relations with the members of the
committee all along have been cor- j
dial, and it was not unfil after ,a
long period of waiting that he fin
ally brought suit, and not then un
til advised to do so by his attorneys.
There is not the slightest doubt
that in accepting the offer of $700
from the committee, Mr., Henkle
believes firmly that he has made a
large sacrifice in the interest of tne
people of Philomath and Corvallis.
Argument on the Farra ipjunc
tion is to be heard by Judge Harris
at Eugene tomorrow.
The Coming Horse Show
It is np to the farmers now to
show what they will do for the
coming horse show to be held in
Cor vallist jane 1st. Tbecommittee
in charge at a considerable sacrifice
of time and business interests have
completed all preliminary arrange
ments, and the business men have
contributed freely toward the ex
penses of the show. It remains for
the farmeis iq enter their horses
and colts in competition for the
various ptemiums offered in the
pamphlets which will be distributed
within a day or two. -
We believe the farmers will at
tend thoroughly to their end of the
business. Any farmer who is not
interested in good horses this spring
when it takes a millionaire to buy
one must be slow indeed. A mag
nificent showing of horses and colts
can be furnished by Benton and ad
joining counties and not one good
one should be left out. Entries can
be made with Grant Elein. secre
tary, May 16th to 31st.
In addition to the interest dis
played by Benton countv horsemen
it is understood that I,inn county
will be well represented here.
Clydesdales will be shown from the
breeding farm of Hulburt and Mil
ler, and I. Oeling. Mr. Miller
of Albany, has announced his in
tention ot entering a ; number of
Morgan colts, which expert judges
report as very fine and there are
rumors of many, others competing;
About the only criticism that the
committee has had' to meet, is on
account of, confining the show
to horses only. Many .farmers
would like to include sheep, cattle
and other stock. This seemed im
practicable at present on account
of the expense of securing grounds,
buildings, sheds, etc. If sufficient
interest is shown by .the farmers to
warrant the expense a project is
now under consideration to broaden
the scope of the show another sea
son and include all farm animals.

Fortunately a combination of reme-
dies, called Mi-o-na stomach tablets,, has
been discovered that absolutely cures in
digestion and restores to health and
strength the whole digestive svstem.-The
use of Mi-o-na is a safeguard against ma
ny ills ; it acts directly upon the gastric
elands, restores perfect action to the di
gestive organs, aids the assimilation of
food, and so strengthens the whole di'
gestive system that you can eat anything
at any time without fear ot indigestion.
Just one little tablet out of a 5O cent
box of Mi-o-na bpfore. . meals for a few
days, and you will soon, regain perfect

So reliable is Mi-o-na in curing all
Jbrma of stomach weakness and troubles
that Graham & Wells give a signed guar
