FRIDAY EVENING AUG. 3, 1906.
In the triumph of Governor
Cummins for nomination to a third
term In Iowa, there is a significant
illustration of the trend of the time.
He is of the new type of statesman.
He stands for tariff revision and
against rail road and trust aggran
dizement. Opposed to him were
Mr. Roosevelt's secretary of the
treasury, and all the backing that
the stand pat interests could mus
ter. The struggle was as fierce as
tt was decisive, and the reform gov
ernor is an easy and overwhelming
The voterj of Iowa has been
cajoled and duped with twaddle
about "protection" and its blessings
until he has heard finally that as a
result of the system the English
man, the German, the Frenchman
and other foreigner buys American
products a long ways cheaper than
he does, and' that the great big
advance he is compelled to pay is
what enriches the '"protected"
trust baron and keeps him poor.
He has heard that under this sys
tem Russia bought Carnegie ar
mor plate at $249 a ton when our
government was paying $500 to
$700 per ton for exactly the same
article, the facts of which were
actually reported to congress by a
congressional committee, which ad
ded that the outside cost of armor
plate was $200 per ton. Having
heard these and similar transactions
most of the Iowa republicans stood
in with their tariff-revision govern
or, and it is a mighty good sign.
After a long and vain search
with microscope and fine-tooth
comb in Russell Sage's will for a
trace of philanthropy, it has been
concluded that if he ever did a stunt
of that sort he didn't let the left
hand know what the right hand

Major Hamm, editor and manager of
the Constitutionalist, Eminence, Ky.,

KICKED AT A DOG.
And hit a Wall The Luck
less Dream of a Corvallisite.
Jesse Spencer had a strange
dream, the other night. He
dreamed that he was offended at a
canine. It was a lowborn, mangy
cur of a dog with no respect for
God or man, and apparently no
desire but to bark and growl at ev
erybody and everything within its
particular horizon. At last its
conduct became unbearable to Jesse
and be determined to kick the un
civil cun He summoned all his
strength and when, according to
his judgment, the canine Was at
exactly the prcper distance and in
a suitable attitude to be well and
scientifically kicked, Jesse let drive.
But it wasn't the ugly cur that
uttered a yell of pain. It was
Jesse. In his sleep, and in his
, wrath, his toe struck, not the dog,
but the bed room wall, and that
too, with an impact that made the
windows rattle. To heighten the
trouble brought on by this nasty
but imaginary sooner of a dorg,
Jesse's toe is badly affected with
ingrowing nail, and of course, that
spot hit the wall the hardest.
The tee is gently handled now,
and as a precaution against future
accidents Jesse ties a pair of brass
knuckles on it at night time,
and sees to it that his wife is safely
out of the room in case of a recur
rence of the dream of the ornery
dorg and his effort to kick it.

PREFER GARDEN FARM.
For County Poor County
Court will Sell or Rent
New County Farm.
At the April term of circuit court
for Benton county, the grand jury
made a report recommending the
purchase by the county of a farm
near Corvallis, to be used as the
county poor farm. The recommend
ation was unanimously made by
the jury, and in accordance there
with, the county court purchased
160 acres formerly known as the
iWells & Mackay hop yard, 2 1-2
miles from Corvallis. ; The price
paid was $35 per acre, ,. At this
week's meeting, the commissioners
court authorized the county judge
to receive ordeis for the sale or rent
of the farm at his discretion and to
make investigation with a view to
purchasing a smaller tract.
The order of the court, is as fol
lows: "On July 11, 1906. the pres
ent county court went out to said
farm and made personal examina
tion of the Lnd and its buildings,
and among other things to consider
its adaptability to the purpose for
which it was intended when pur
chased. "Now, having fully considered
this matter, this court does not con
sider it advisable or for the best in
terest of Benton county to expend
of the county funds an additional
amount necessary to erect suitable
buildings and make such other im
provements as would be necessary
to prepare the place for a comfort
able home for our county charges.
The court further considers that a
small tract of good land suitable
for gardening as better adapted to
this purpose. Therefore, it is or
dered that the county judge be, and
he i9 hereby authorized to receive
offers to purchase or to rent said
farm and to report the same to this
court at its next regular term."
THINGS THEY SAY.
About Ordinances That are In-
Operative A Woman's
The Times has been commended
by a number of people for an ar
tide in Tuesday's issue relative to
certain city ordinances to which no
attention is paid. ' Among others
who have mentioned the matter is
a lady who called the office up by
phone and after expressing appre
ciation of the article said: "We
have been thinking all along of
building a home ;n thiscity, and at
one time had about determined to
do so; but with cess pools main
tained on many blocks where there
are sewers and water and with oth
er nuisances Deing maintained in
complete defiance of city laws, we
have simply delayed building to see
whether city affairs will take a turn
for the better." There is no doubt
in the world but the growth
and progress of the town is in a
measure retarded by the very con
ditions to which this Corvallis
woman alludes. Among the or
dinances that are very largely
inoperative are these: Requir
ing grass to be cut in the streets;
prohibiting gates from swinging
over sidewalks; prohibiting use of
barbed wire within the city limits;
prohibiting cess pools and requiring
water closets to be connected with
sewers where laterals .have been
