with 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 of more
than passing : importance. The
numerical feature of the attendance
was not less conspicuous,' all the
extra chairs 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 tbe meeting,

ing drydock "Dewey," tbe Panama
canal, tbe railroad-rate bill and the
Greene-Gaynor trial, tbe Daweyat

Chicago May 8. At the end of
a weary two-mile walk, Rosy Gold-
bery, 8 years old. laid her l:yeariold
brother down at the county hospit
al yesterday and aeked in broken
English that he be admitted for
treatment. The clerk looked at the
baby face and then at the girl in
wonder. The infant was dead. ,
Rosy' is the daughter of Joseph
Goldbery, a shoemaker, who came
from Russia three months ago. The
girl has been tbe only nurse to two
younger children. Yorke, the baby
was taken with measles and whoop
ing cough, and neighbors at length
prevailed upon the family to have
it taken to the hospital. With the
tew English words at her command
Rosa inquired the way to the coun
ty institution. It lequirad consid
erable explanation to pursuade tbe
girl that tbe baby was past medical
aid and coald not be received.
Then she quietly lifted " ub
body and started for the door,
tending to return with it to
father's house. -The- hospital
thorities with difficulty ' convinced
her this would not dd, and that tbe
body must be taken to the county
morgue. Weeping, she carried the
child to the morgue, ' on the south
part of the group of build lege.

Timber Cruiser Women Sub

of Their Delusion
Other News.
Portland, May 16. The Oreeoni-
an says that five women and a tiny
little baby, emaciated, worn out
and ' haggard,; and , with hardly
enough clothing to cover themselves
were discovered last .Saturday on
the beach in the vicinity of Heceta
Head by George Hodges, a timber
cruiser, of Salado, this state,, who
was forcing his was through ' the
rough country to inspect some tim
ber. ' The women had subsisted on
crabB and mussels for days ' and
were in a pitiful plight. Mr. Hodg
es supplied them with some sea bis
cuits and condenBed milk and had
to make bis way to the nearest set
tlement without a bit of food.
The womeh told Hodges that they
had been sent out in tbe wilderness
by "Second Messiah" Creffield, and
while they had heard that he bad
been killed in Seattle, they said
they knew that such was not' the
case,' for know one . but the Lord
could have the power to take his
life. -
"Mr. Hodges arrived in Portland
yesterdayj aad he believes some
thing should be done to rescue the
fanatic women whesa minds have
been turned by the hypnotic influ
ence of the man who a few days ago
was shot down like a dog by young
Mitchell, whose sisters Creffield
had succeeded in bringing into
disgrace. .
These women will starve to
death or expire from exposure,'
said Mr. Hodges. "I found them
in a most inaccessible spot on tbe
beach, and they had nothing to eat
but a few mussels gathered on the
beach. They had two tents, and
bad prepared as best they could to
await the return of Creffield, who,
they said, bad gone to Queen Char
lott s douna to select a place tor a
colony on one of the many islands
there. "Creffield is the Second Mes
siah," they told me, and they would
rather starve to death than disobey
bis instructions. He had told them
to rerrain where they were until
his return, and they retueed every
offer that I made to see them back
to civilization. Four of the women
hail from Corvallis, for I have seen
them ' there, but I cannot recall
their names, , although I think
Fr . nk Hurt's wife is one of them.
"I was cruising timber in the vi
cinity when the women came and
asked me to help raise their tents,
which had been torn down by tbe
the strong winds that sweepinfrom
the ocean. They told me they had
lived in the isolated spot for three
"Creffield certainly 'knsw where
he was going when he took those
women icto the wildernes?, for a
more 8f eluded place could not be
selected. ' It is four miles by the
roughest trail imaginable from the
nearest settlement, and about I4
miles from Waldport, the nearest
town. The people of Waldport re
fused to assist the unfortunate wo
men, and I can see no other fate for
them than starvation unless they
are rescued before many days."
Mr. Hodges expects to return to
Waldport in a couple of .days.

Hillsboro, Or.. May 16: The re
volver taken from the Farmers' and
Merchants' Bank of Forest Grove,
when that institution -. was robbed
in December la' t, was found Tiurled
beside the railroad track' near this
place yesterday by A'. P Luther, a
farmer, who was plowing on ibe
right of way. ,
Buried with the revolver belong
ing to the bank were found dy Ca
nute caps, skeleton keys, a number
of candles and 56 shells. The lat
ter were of the same size and de
scription as those used in the gun
taken from the home of Carey Sny
der at the time ot the bank robbery.
Mr. Luther bad been working
yesterday on tbe strip of land bord
ering the lin9 of the railroad, and
toward evening his plow 6truck in
to the cached explosives and other '
articles. He reported his discovery
to Sheiiff Connell, who, upon in
vestigation, found tbat the revolver
was the property of the Forest
Grove banking house and had been
missing since the time ef the rob
bery. The theory was advanced at the
time of tbe crime and pursuit that
the robbers bad taken a : northerly
course, and had gone into the sUte
of Washington. . Finding of the
buried Implements and explosives
indicates that the bandits took a
route along the railroad in the di
rection of Hillsboro, which shows
that their course was almost direct
ly east. This ' would indicate tbat
they ' either came to Portland
or, reaching the main line of the
Southern Pacific, went Sauth, hop
ing to reach California.
The story of the alleged kidnap
ping of Carey Soyder in Portland
on Decemter 1, 1905, the night of
the bank robbery at Forest Grove,
is recalled by discovery of the hid
den weapon and ammunition.
He was said to have been eplritt-d
away by two companions, who
drove out of the city. The Forest.

Always Keeps Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in His House.
"We would not be without Chamberlain's
Cough Kemedy. It is kept on hand contin- ,
nally in our home," says W. W. Kearney,
editor of the Independent, Lowry City, Mo.
That is just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
settled in the system. , This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be
done when the remedy is kept at hand. Foe
