-The funeral of the late H. E.

ducted by Rev. Vincent and the in
terment was in Newton cemetery.
The deceased was 46 years of age,
and was a man of very high char
acter. The survivors are the wife
and son. . Later accounts of the
accident are to the effect that Mr.
Burns was on his bicycle in the sta
tion yard. A growth of eucalyptus
trees obscured from view a train
that was approaching swiftly from
the direction that Mr. Burns was
going. All unaware until it was
too late, the wheelman pursued his
course until struck by the speeding

The advance of 2$ percent in the
rates, on account of the San Fran
cisco earthquake, to be applied to
all new policies as they are written
is the occasion of the dissatisfaction.
Those who have it to pay say Ore
gon is not in the siesmic zone and
that her people ought not to be
mulcted by millionaire insurance
men now to make up for losses the
companies have sustained byrea
son . of earthquakes in California
The injustice of the new rates is as
patent as can be, but how to" avoid
them is a query difficult to answer.
It might be a good thing for Ore
gon capitalists to start their own in
surance company on the old rate
basis. They would be very sure to
do the business, and the business
would be very sure to be profitable,
provided the policies were written
in Oregon where there are no earth
quakes, blizzards, cyclones or other

There is to be a meeting to
night of the Water Committee at
which the accounts in rffie "construc
tion of the water works will be cast
up, and a balance figured out. The
work is completed so far as origin
al construction Is concerned, and
all that remains are odds and ends,
such as would naturally be incident
al to a new building, a new machine
or anything else newly construct
ed. The work of connecting con
sumers is expected to begin to
morrow. The rates fixed by the Water
Committee far household use are the
same as have been in vogue with
the old Water Company
there is neither toilet or
rate is $1 per month. Toilet is 50
cents and bath 25 cents extra. The
rate for lawn sprinkling is $3 to $5
for the season, according to thenum
ber of lots irrigated. It is expect
ed that these rates will remain in
.vogue until the Commission shall
be able to make them lower. The
question of reduction will depend
of course upon the number of con
sumers and the aggregate revenue.
If no accident happens at the
C. & E. station in the near future,
persons in the habit of being about
tkere will be agreeably dissapoint
ed. Intense rivalry has sprung up
among the news boys to be first
down town with the evening papers
and to facilitate matter? they board
the arriving train while it is yet in
motion. There are a number of
them, and their struggles to b; first
up trie steps ot the car, with the
train still moving swiftly, is a scary
spectacle. A harrowing fear of
some mother's boy under the cruel
car wheel possesses some bf the old
er people who are wont to look on
when the train comes in each even
ing. A strenuous city ordinance
prohibits the boarding of a train
while it is in motion.
Those who have seen it, say
the reservoir of the Mountain water
system is a thing of beauty. The
cement lining is now covered with
a coating of black ' asphalt, and the
effect when the big tank is filled
with clear mountain water is a deep
blue characteristic 01 a clear sky.
The stand pipe in the center of the
water rises eight feet above the sur
face and spouts water like a foun
tain. A party of business men
went out yesterday to see the thing
perform, and returned enthusiastic
as to the;work. The engineer in
charge of the construction of the
McMinnville water system was in
town tne otner day, and- alter a vis
it to it, he declared the Corvallis
reservoir to be the most perfect ar
rangement of the kind he had ever
seen. The reservoif- is now com
pleted and full of water. Its ca
pacity is 250,000 gallons.
