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.

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.

He was not allowed, however, to give all.his testimony. After tak ing the witness stand and answer ing a few questions, the prosecu tion interposed objections and further evidence by the Benton sheriff was ruled out. ' Mr. Burnett did' not hear a single person in Seattle say Mitchell ought to be convicted, but heard hundreds ex press the hope that he would " be promptly acquitted. Unless one or two men hold out, Sheriff Burnett believes that' a vetdict will be quick ly reached. He thinks all" the jurors -have tveir minds already made up.

This is something new in this lo cality and local craftsmen will view with considerable interest its behav ior in the rapids of the Willamette. The ribs of the canoe are of half- inch oak and there are 46 of them. The sheeting or covering is of quarter-inch cypress. As is gen erally known this kind of craft is propelled by paddles, Indian fash ion, instead of by oars. There is some conjecture as to the success of this mode of propulsion on the river at this point, but however, this may be, the. canoe is certainly a baautiful model. Portland Market Report.

The information comes from Victor Hurt, whoarriv- . ed from thejaattle ground, after a two weeks absence.. Four brilliant law yers are matched in the case, two for the state and two for the defense, and progress on both sides is oca tested and disputed inch by inch Some of the scenes in the court room have been dramatic in the ex treme, particularly when the attor neys for the defense have intimated, that the judge is partial to the pros ecution. Little by little, as they fought, the attorneys for Mitchell; have" gained favor with public senti ment, until now the over crowded! court room, the people on the street and apparently the united popula tion, save the judge and lawyers for the stati seem unanimous and pronounced in favor ol MitcbeDF..

Miller the following day as he was passing through the crowd. "If I were the judge of this court, I would clear all that rabble out of the court room" was the fierce re mark of the state's lawyer one day after there had been . a demonstra tion. The arguments in the case ate expected to begin today, and if the jury does not bring in a verdict of acquital, everybody, even the pros ecution will be- surprised.
