Corvallis Times
There is a pathetic phase to pro
ceedings in the supreme court at
Salem this week. Judge A. H.
Tanner, law partner of the late
Senator Mitchell is there pleading
with the court not to disbar him.
His offense is that he committed
perjury before the federal grand
jury in the hope of saving Senator
Mitchell from disgrace. In his d -fense,
he urges that he has been
pardoned by President Roosevelt,
that the practice of law is his means
of gaining a living, and that harm
can not come to his profession by
allowing him to remain in it. He
says: ' 'Senator Mitchell implored
me in the most pathetic manner,
to stand between him and disgrace
and ruin in his old age, after a life
time of public service, and he re
presented that his fate was in my
hands and mine alone.
' 'Senator Mitchell was a man of
amiable character and I felt for him
a warm friendship and a sympathy
that. I cannot express, and felt un
der obligations of loyalty which
justified joining him in his effort to
protect himself in his old age from
the assaults of political enemies. I
was made to feel Jthat if I refused
to protect him in his extremity I
would occupy the position of an in
grate and a traitor. It was a po
sition difficult to judge by any who
have not been placed in a similar
position." Mr. Tanner says he
did not have the strength to resist
Senator Mitchell's heart-rending
appeals, and, though always pro
testing, finally went before the
grand jury and committed perjury
in the effort to shield and protect
his friend."
The case is one for pity, it not.
iadeed, for charity. It was an aw
ill position for Mr. Tanner, when
he stood face to face with him and
heard his white-haired and vener
able friend and business associate of
years plead for help to save him
from ruin. It was an appeal of old
aje, and made by an old man, made
too, with the power of a brilliant
mind. It was in a voice broken
with distress, ana the appeal was
for friendship. The friend that
CDmes in time of need, no matter
. what his fault, inevitably commands
admiration. The best spirit of
friendship is that which stands
staunch and true when there is dis
tress. It is so in contrast with tl e
sunny day, empty, hollow friend
ship, so much in vogue, that there
will be many who will forgive Mr.
Tanner and forget his error. It
would almost seem that his pro
fession ought to do so .
Independent Phone People A Cable
with 150 Miles of Wire in it.
The Independent Telephone
people are stretching new cables
for the betterment of their Corval
lis system. A cable containing 150
pairs of wires is being strung from
Main street to the Robert Huston
corner on Ninth, along Jefferson.
It is 2,800 feet, or more than
half a mile long. It contains more
than 150 miles of wire. It weighs
14,000 pounds and cost . several
thousand dollars. Similar cables
are to run through the alleys be
tween First and Main, and between
Main and Third. From the Hust
on corner smaller cables will run
north on Ninth to the Applewhite
corner for serving Job's addition
and another will run south on the
same street to serve the southern
portion of town. The cables im
mensely reduce the number of over
head wires. When present im
provements are complete Independ
ent wires will hardly be noticeable
in the business portion of town
The effectiveness of the system will
be immensely .bettered, because
, windstorms and live electric wires
do not bother cables, and disturb
ances like that of two nights ago
will not be able to put phones out
of commission to any great extent.'
A big force of men will be engaged
in the local Independent improve
ments for six weeks to come. The
system, always a model one,
will be one of the very best in the
Northwest, those in big cities not
excepted. They have now about
1,500 miles of wire in the Corvallis
The Independent people are
spending about seven millions of
dollars in the Pacific Northwest.
They are putting in automatic
systems in Portland, Tacoma, Bell-
ingham and Spokane. They are
installing systems like the Corvallis
exchange at Walla Walla and Port-
To wnsena. They are putting in
toll lines from Spokane to Portland
a distance of 439 miles. The sur
vey is nearly complete and the polls
set to Canby, for the toll line from
Portland to Corvallis via Albany.
The line will be in use as far as
Salem before the legislature con
venes. It is building at the rate of
a mile a day, and will not stop un
til Albany and Corvallis are reach-
ea. it costs 350 a mue to Duila a
toll line. At Albany the Inde
pendent exchange is now in oper
ation and has more than 300 phones.
The Home. Telephone Company
has become owner of the Corvallis
system, except the stock owned by
local people. The B. R. Electric
of Kansas Ciiy which built and con
trolled the exchange, traded it for
stock in The Home. It is the lat
ter that is putting in the automatic
system in Portland, 37,000 miles
of wire have been strung the. The
Home people have" 175,000 miles of
wire in Los Angeles. They have
more than 20 exchanges in the
southern part of California. Their
Portland system will begin opera
tions in a few weeks.
The relations of localjstockhoiders
with the Independent phone will
not bs changed in any respect.
Their stock is better than it was before.
At the Opera House Saturday
One of the best of the eastern
road attractions. " A Royal Slave"
comes to the opera house tomorrow
night, and is guaranteed to be
thoroughly firstclass. As a matter
ct assurance, the management is
authorzed to make this statement
that in case the performance is not
satisfactory the nrney will be
cheerfully refunded, Thit the house
will be crowded is evident from
the very large advance sale; more
than half of the sea's are taken.
Every piece of Ecenery used in
the production is carried by the
company, and the handsome gowns
worn are triumphs of the
modiste. An American news
paper corespondent goes down into
Mexico on an important mission. meets with a beautiful
senoriti, a rich blooded Castilian,
full of fire, magnificent. He woos
and wins her, but not until he has
parsed through many adventures,
which make " A Royal Slave"
the most stirring play of the day.
When so Many Trains run Wild
. Trainmen and Their Duties Mul
tiplied Perils.
jNoooJy knows the nervousness
and responsibility ot trainmen on
duty in the Willamette valley these
days. Lhe congestion of trains
and the fact that so many trains
are running on unaccustomed lines
largely increase the peril of accid
ent. Trains are following eachother
in rapid succession and many are
beiug met on irregular schedules,
or what the trainmen call "wild"
trains. For all these trains to meet
without being unnecessarily de
tamed at meeting points, and for
all of them to make the best pos
sible time and yet not run into each
other in head end or rear collisions
means alertness for train dispatch
ers in the general office, telegraph
operators at way stations, and con
ductors, engineers, and brakemen
on tne trains. ruve passenger
trains out of Corvallis in as many
hours this morning, because ''wild"
freight trains of equal number, to
ge ner witn tne regular trains on
the line means a complicated con
dition for the railroad operatives of
which the passenger in the snug
coach never dreams. The concern
of the conductors and brakesmen as
they pass among the coaches of
their trains is often discernible in
rimes nxe tuese; ror wnen tnere is
a collision or an accident, there al
ways has to be a scape goat.-guilty
or not guilty, and this realization
that somebody has to be offered up
as a sacrifice as well as the usual
horrors of a wreck are things the
patient, hardworking, thoughtful
trainmen never for a moment lose
sight of.

By the accidental discharge of a
rifle, A. J. Cator, a farmer residing
three miles south of Philomath, sus
tained a serious wound Wednesday.
The ball entered the ankle and
parsed through in the vicinity of
the joint, shattering some of the
bones and inflicting a complicated
wound. A surgeon was immed
iately summoned by phone, and the
injured limb was dressed. . At last
accounts the patient was resting
easy. When the accident hat pin
ed bis son Osdal and a friend were
examining a 58 calibre Winchester.
Mr. Cator was standing a few feet
distant. The lever of the gun was
thrown back, the supposition being
that the gun was not loaded. It
happened however, that there was
a cartridge inside. When the lev
er was returned to its position, an
accidental movement sprung the
trigger and the weapon was dis
charged. To the consternation of
all present the ball entered the
ankle of the elder Cator, as des
cribed above.
Mr. Cator is 56 years of age, and
the accident will cause him consid
erable trouble.
