TUESDAY EVENUNO MAY ,
AS TO MR. WILSON.
There is no position in the coun
ty of more concern to the people
than the office of county judge. In
the person of E. E. Wilson, the
people have a candidate who will
square with the most exacting
standard. He is in the vigor - of
manhood, being 37 years of age. It
was because of his known fitness
for the position that he was urged
by persons of all political parties to
become a candidate' One of his
best recommendations for the place
is his recognized capacity as a busi
ness man. He owns and manages
a farm of 400 acres west of Corval
lis, and this year paid into the
county treasury taxes aggregating
the sum of $130.64.. These mat
ters are mentioned merely in illus
tration of the fact that his sub
stantial interests make it certain
that he will have 'a care for the
interests of the other taxpayers of
. It is his oroeressiveness that is
perhaps his most noteworthy busi
ness trait, andwith this his business
ability,: force and push would be of
infinite value in devising means for
fully developing the public road
system of the county.
In short, Mr. Wilson is a typical
roughly up to the times in probate
law and in no sense dependent on
attorneys to unravel the high places
of the law incident to wills, estates,
guaruiansmps auu nitc iuii italics
of probate court.' He if not a res
ident of the third w?rd in the 1 city
of Corvallis, nor has he ever been
a resident of the city. This means
that the interests of the provinces
of the county outside of the second
and third ward of the city, as well
as thoFe wards will be in safe hands
as presidiug officer of the commis
sioners court. , With Wilson as
- judge and Paul Dodele as commis
sioner, it will not be a close corpora
ation in the second and third wards
inside the corporate limits of Cor-
; vallis. Sovernor e-enerals at Man
ila governing the outside provinces
may be allrightover in the Philip
pines, but it is not in order among
the sovereign yoemanry of Benton
In conclusion it is but just to
Mr. Wilson to say, that his views
on road and bridge building do not
reach the high ideals of skilled ar-
cnueciure exempunea in - . juage
Woodward's famous i and, fantastic
letter S bridge of some years ago.
Mr. Wil-on never learned ;to 4uild
a bridge so crooked that in crossing
it the leaders in a four-horse team
ate hay out of the hind end of their
wagon before the driver coulJ get
his outfit over-the structure.
No officer that has served Ben
ton county in an official capacity
has been more faithful in the dis
charge of his duties than has Wil
liam Buchanan. He keeps the
treasurers office at the court house;
where it is divorced . from 4 beans,
syrup, bacon and other assets " of
some down town , store, and that is
a reason why he is a most excellent
man for the office. '
The point in the case of Harley
Hall is that he can if elected, use
the salary of the recorder's office to
a most excellent advantage, and
can at the same .time give a com
plete, capable and painstaking dis
charge of his official duties.He is a
genial, straightforward young man,
whom once to know, is to always
regard most kindly."' Give him the
office and heywillgive honest serv
ice in -return. - - - -

Of Insane Man who Died in
,r ; Asylum.
Papers are in preparation for the
appointment of V. A. Vidito as ad
ministrator of the estate of - James
D. Killbury, who died at the asy
lum last March'. Recent disclosures
have rendered necessary the ap
pointment ot an administrator.
Deceased was a brother- of Mrs.
R. S;; Barclay, of? Tidewater, at
whose home he lived for a long time
previous to his commitment. .Kill
bury was always regarded as ec
centric but in eailier- life was quite
prosperous. During his stay with
the Barclays he spoke of having
$3,000 in a San,, -Francisco bank,
but said nothing of -having money
or property elsewhere. His mental
condition was such : that little at
tention was paid to his .Statements
at the time and he was not ques
tioned specifically on ; the subject.
Before going, to make his home
with his sister, Killbury lived for a
long time at Coos Bay, - and since
his death letters of inquiry directed
to Marsh field to ascertain if possible
something further as to the condi
tion of his business affairs. To the
surprise of those interestedj it has
been discovered that Killbury had
in a bank at Marshfield more than
$1,500 and a good note for ; nearly
$100. : These funds are available at
once by the regularly appointed ad
ministrator. ; Discovery of this
money will prompt the investigation
into Killbury's statement that , he
had money in a San Francisco
bank: r .- 7;
-. ' At. the Barclay home . Killbury
left.a quantity of personal effects,
among them a trunk, - which have
not been examined by anyone since
he was sent, to Salem: The Bar:
clays understand that it will be the
business, of ,. the -administrator to
take charge of these. - It is believ
ed that fur ther important disclosure's
will, be made when , the trunk is
opened and contents examined.

JOHNNY BEAL DEAD.
Benton County Boy Suicides
- Johnny Beal, a young man of
years, who was born, and reared
near Wells, : Benton . county, com
mitted suicide in Albany Saturday
night or early Sunday morning by
drowning in-the Willamette river.
The body was recovered Sunday,
after a careful search, B. J. Hecker
finding the remains at the foot of
Mill street. According to report
the young man had been in bad heal
th for some time, and a few months
ago, was obliged to give up his po
sition in the Albany chair factory
on that account. He seemed to
grow worse and spent a sleepless
night of illness Friday night, aris
ing Saturday morning and going
for a walk. He did not return
Saturday and search was finally in
stituted with the result stated.
On the bank of the river Mr. Beal's
nat ana coat were rouna, - witn a
note inside the hat, "Goodbye, "I
love you all. J. D. Beal." When
these significant tokens were dis
covered, dragging the river was at
once begun, and the body recover-,
ed about a block below ' where the
articles were picked up. '
- Johnny Beal was a son of W," A.
Beal of Wells, ; one' of Northern
Benton's best known " farmers. He
was brought up in this county, and
married Miss Jennie Robbins, May
21st. 1902, a daughter in another
well known family tor many years
residents of the vicinity of Wells;
who with a child, survive,
"The funeral was held in '-Albany
at the Robbins home at 2 p. m. yesterday.'-

A fact that added to the sadness
of the funeral was' that it occurred
on the fourth anniversary of ' the
wedding of - the young couple;
