TO MAKE EXTENSION. PREACH AND DANCE.
In the greeting accorded William
J. Bryan last night in New York
City there is a testimonial such as
las seldom, if ever, before been ex
tended a private citizen. The
home coming of General Grant in
1880 was attended with great popu
lar demonstration, but he was an
ex-president of the United States,
and a military hero. A magnifi
cent ovation was given Admiral
Dewey in New York City a few
vears aeo, but he was a conquering
hero returning home from a tran
scendent naval victory. Mr. Bry
an is only a private citizen. He
has held no high office to bring
him distinction; he has emerged a
iero from no wars nor battles. His
only title to the acclaim of his coun-.
trymen is that he is an American,
that he is uncompromisingly devot
ed to the right, and that he has a
brilliant and amiable personality.
The applauding thousands that
cheered him at Madison Square last
night paid homage, "3 not to an offi
cial, not to military or naval spirit,
not to fortune, not to name, but to
manhood. They applauded be
cause they have come to know that
Mr. Bryan is one national figure
who hears the cry from the cot of
the humble as well as from the
mansion ot the rich, that he is one
statesman who is not tethered to
the" rich or great but knows and
feels the needs of the masses and
that his ambition is not for self, but
for the uplift and easement of the
lowly and the betterment of all his
That such is the cuiding motive
in Mr. Bryan, the observer long
ago discerned. That long in ad
vance of others of his countrymen
he thought out and proposed poli
cies for the general betterment of
American society i made remark
ably manifest by the adoption of
many of these polices by a presi
dent politically opposed to Mr.
Bryan. For years the Nebraskan
stood alone in the advocacy of re.
medial measures and the reward he
received at the time was to have
obloquy and contumely heaped up
on him from all sides. He is the
man who walked ahead and blazed
the way ior the LaFollettes, the
Cummins, the Folks and the Roose
velts, and it was to his powerful
appeals for correctives more than to
. any other influence that the forces
have been set in motion to draw an
unwilling congress and to lead pub
lic officials in high places toward
better laws and a purer citizenship.
It is the very adoption of his ideas
by opponents and their incorpora
tion into public policies that have
caused his countrymen to recognize
the true greatness of Mr. Bryan
and to call forth their unrestricted

less oblivion. Though he suffered
two such defeats, Mr. Bryan last
night in New York City stood in as
illustrisus a position before the
country and the world as ever iell
to the lot of mortal. For a private
citizen to be the recipient of the
New York ovation is as enviable a
distinction as to be the president ot
the nation and it doubtless is quite
as gratifying to the great Common
Of C & E. to Newport
Franchise Granted Through
Main Street of Seaside
The initial step has been taken
for the building of an extension of
the C. & E. raflroad from Yaquina
to Newport. Tuesday night the
city council of that town granted
a franchise for extending its tracks
through the main street of New
port and to maintain depots to the
southward and westward of the
Abbey House. The franchise in
cludes the use of the street for a
double track, and extends for a
period of 99 years. Officers of the
company and attorneys were pres
ent during the session of the coun
cil, which lasted from Tuesday eve
ning at 7:30 to 1:30 Wednesday
morning. The franchise ordinance
was read, section by section, and
adopted accordingly, discussions
occurring over many of the provis
ions. One requirement is that the
extension must be completed within
a year, or the franchise will lapse.
Among those who were present at
the meeting of the council in behalf
of the company were Judge W. .
McFadden of Corvallis, J. K.
Weatherford of Albany, General
Manager Talbot, General Superin
tendent Walsh and Bridge Superin
tendent Stevens. They all went
over on a special train Tuesday and
returned in the same way immedi
ately after adjournment of the
council, leaching Corvallis at five
o'clock Wednesday morning.
The provision that the extension
must be completed within a year,
probably means that the company
will build into Newport during the
winter. If done, it means a large
ly increased summer travel as well
as more winter travel to Newport.
If, instead of the tedious transfer to
the boat, requiring, sometimes an
hour or more to reach Newport, the
run down can be made on a train
in fifteen minutes, the popularity of
Newport as a seaside resort will be
immensely enhanced, and the reve
I nues of the railroad in the passen
ger line be correspondingly increas
ed. It is said that the extension will
cost $100,000. As projected, the
line will probably , cross - the mud
flats to McLane's point and thence
skirt the bay to Newport. A. great
deal of bnlkbead work;, will be nec
essary it is said irom Olsonville to
enter Newport proper.

into full swing next week. !
The hop men have provided a
dance hall for their pickers and
some time ago they announced that
they would welcome preachers,
promising them such trade in mar
riages as should turn up. The of
fer was not without result. B. D.
Ellsworth, Methodist, and W. S.
Hoffman, Baptist, have declared
their intention to hold services at
the yards. When the weather is
fine they probably will preach out
of doors but on rainy nights the
dance hall will be available.
Preaching will last from 7 till 8 and
then the dance will start.
A marriage bureau will be a new
feature this year. Those who pat

Holding: Religious Serviees
There At Southern Pacific
They are holding religious ser
vices in a railroad coach at the
Southern Pacific station. The ex
tra long car that stands near the
depot building is the one in use for
the purpose. It is built and oper
ated for this use, and is called a
chapel car. Though circuses, the
atrical companies and other travel
ing organizations have often ap
peared here in their own special
cars, this is a novelty in religious
work. It is neatly fitted up with a
pulpit and seats and has a capacity
of 100. . It is equipped with an or
gan, phonograph and other appli
ances incidental to religious work.
It is in the charge of Rev. and Mrs.
Hermiston of San Francisco, and is

Religious services are held each
evening at 730 except Saturday,
and are of but an hour's duration.
The Sunday services are to be in
the local Baptist church, and will
occupy both the morning and even
ing hour. Those who have seen
the chapel car describe it as very
convenient and comfortable and is a
literal church on wheels.
Tax Money Already Collected
Levy for Road Purposes
was not Legal.
A special tax of five mills, levied
in district number 17 for the im
provement of the roads therein, has
been abandoned. The district is
known as West Willamette and
Doke Gray is the supervisor. The
farms of Peter Rickard, Manly
Currier, Punderson Avery, and
others are included in the district.
The tax was voted by a consider
able majority of the taxpayers, but
it subsequently developed that the
proceedings were irregular. It
would, if all had been collected,
have yielded a revenue of $882, and
thereby hangs tbe tale. A number
of residents declined to pay the tax,
and of course could not be forced to
do so. Of the $882, that the tax
would have returned, $675 was act
ually paid, $70 of it comingfrorrf
the O. & C. railroad company. It
is understood that an order has al
ready been prepared, and that at the
coming term of the county court,
action will be taken for refunding
the tax money to those who paid
it, the $70 to the railroad included.
