The Independent telephone
people are fast developing their
system in Albany. They are
building there in . the same sub
stantial manner that they built
the Corvallis lines. They have
250 applications for phones already
and expect to have the ?system in
operation with'n 30 days. The
same people are spending immense
sums of money in Portland where
they are building a splendid system.
. An adding, machine is in use at
the assessor s office to make addi

the lengthy column was $485,750.

gonian says the lawyers for the
prosecution have given it up that
Mitchell will be acquitted. The
head lines of the dispatches are:
' 'Admits jury will acquit Mitchell ;
State's attorneys now confess de
feat; no testimony in rebuttal;
attempts to break down defense con
sidered useless. Facts cannot' be
denied. O. V. Hurt's exposure of
Creffield's hideous crimes turn
scale in avengers lavor." The dis
patch adds that the case will go to
the jury this afternoon. One of
the lawyers for the state contessed
in an interview that "the state has
been beaten ever since Hurt's testi
mony was given the jury.',
Ubtil Next Fall Local Steam
boat Office Closed Yester
The local office of the steamboat
company in this city was closed
yesterday for the season, and
Agent H. N. Hoffman left by the
afternoon train for Portland, where
he will continue in the employ of
the Oregon 6ity Transportation
Company. The last boat until the
fall rains make a bigger river, left
down yesterday morning with a
small cargo. It was the Pomona,
and she only reached Corvallis af
ter a most difficult trip up, in which
she nearly tore her steam capstan
asunaer in punine nerselt over a
gravel bar. The last trip is a little
later in the season than usual, the
long continued rains have kept the
Willamette at boating stage sev
eral weeks later than is common.
The last trip in 1905 was ' made
June 15th. The river is now. but
10 inches above low water. The
fact that the Pomona draws 16 inch
es of water shows what the task is
of dragging her over the bars at
the present time for upper river
traffic. The chief obstacles to sum
mer navigation are in the river be
tween Independence and Albany.
Whenever a boat can reach Albany
it can also make Corvallis as there
are but few obstructions between
the two latter towns. The Pomona
will make regular trips htreaiter
between Portland and Salem.
