A certain Benton county horse
is in litigation. le was attached
by the sheriff on a debt owed by J.
E. Hawkins to Mr. Howell. After
seiving the papers, the officer left
the animal at the place and soon
after arrival in Corvallis learned
that parties had started the animal
in the diiection of Philomath and
that tbey were trying to get him
out of the county. Officer Wells
left at once and reached Philomath
in time to intercept the party and
secure the horse. Hawkins now
claims that he is not the owner of
the animal. The matter will prob
ably be the occasion of a heariag'in

How liquor was freely sold by
the glass on the Newport excursion
train Sunday has been a source of
gossip. Two demijohns of whisk
ey, various kinds ot wines and oth
er drinks are declared to have been
the stock in trade of a young boy
who is alleged to have hailed from
Stayton, Marion county, and who
retailed his wares without stint on
the train. He is described as per
haps 17 years of age. It is related
that his sales on the train were
made in, every county, and since he
passed through three dry counties
the fines and -imprisonment that
could have been piled up against
him if any one had been on hand
to gather evidence would be enough
to bankrupt an ordinary capitalist.
His operations were in effect a trav
Corvallis local optionists have
their eves on the Oregon courts.
A new measure passed by the initi
ative at tbe late election provides
that cities may by popular vote
amend their own charters. The
anti-optionists claim this measure
removes the jurisdiction of the lo-
al option law, and gives to any
town the right to regulate its liquor
business. Coquille City did not go
dry but the county did as a whole,
and now the town has gone to
court with the contention that it
can by the new charter amendment
measure, control its own liqnor
business, and not be dry even
though Cooi county has so voted
The litigation will go through the
supreme court of course. Anti-op
tionists everywhere are hoping for
a decision that Coquille may run its
own business, local option in Coos
to the contrary notwithstanding
Optionists everywhere are hoping
to the contrary, and there you are
Corvallis optionists figure it out
that if Coquille' s contention should
be upheld by the supreme court,
Albany would revolute and reverse
the decision of last June when Lion
county went dry, carrying Albany,
much against the latter's wish,
along with it, and with the outcome
that a great and very dry drouth is
now prevalent in the sister town
down the Willamette. Corvallis of
course wouldn't go wet even if the
Coquille idea should be sustained
Every precinct in the town but one
went dry, and it went wet but by
four. It was number four or the
south precinct. Numbers one. two
and three went dry by a total of 94,
giving a net majority for drouth of
90. The vote two years before was
156. With Albany dry, Corvallis
is much dryer, and that is why .lo
cal optionists say they do not want
to see the courts annul the local op
tion law on the Coquille City pre
tence. It is not likely that there
will be such an outcome.
