TUESDAY EVENIKG, EEC. 4, 1SC6
Language fails when it comes
time t o state the case of Charles
Carjjs. He is the man who brutal
ly beat a crippled Chinaman. The
latter is Old Tom, and the common
"Statement of him is that he is an
inoffensive old man. That he could
have given Corns any kind of prov
ocation is improbable. What seems
to be the ftct is that Cams and his
friend found the old cripple alone
in his place with none to in
terfere or defend. The coward in
stinct seized the assailant and the
old man was knocked down. Then
the brute with infinite cowardice
and brutality stsmped hi J prostrate
and helpless victim in the face un
til outsiders arrived and interfered.
It makes no difference if the
victim is an alien. Protection and
charity are for the yellow man and
the white man alike in this country
of the stars and stripes. They are
for the black man and the white
man, the red man and the brown
man. the strong man and the weak
man. Just as the gentle dew of
heaven falls on each alike, so should
it be and is the province of our
protection and defense to extend to
all of them.
Cam's act is craven and it should
be punished accordingly. Benton
is not a county where hoodlumism
is tolerated. It is a county of peace
good citizenship and correct con
duct. It is a place where decent
self respecting, high minded men
live and where the .watchword is
honorable action. It is no place for
brutality like that of the craven
Cams and with one votes it should
be and is condemned. The of
fender should be accorded punish
ment to the last limit and resource
of the law.
Captain Sapp of Pullman in a Stiff
Arm Stunt Talks About OAC.
Captain Sapp of the Puilman
football team, is good with the
"stiff arm." He disputes Eugene's
title to any championship honors
this way, in Sunday's Oregonian:
"Eugene savs, we, Pullman, were
not able to win the championship
' of our own state by defeating the
University of Washington. I might
on the other hand, say that Eugene
was not able to win the champion
ship of Oregon by not defeating
OAC. Whitman held Washing
ton down to a scoreless game, and
we successfully defeated them, and
therefore I do not see that it is
necesary for ua to meet Washing
ton for us to win the championship
-f our owj state. I can readily
see why Eugene is more concerned
about meeting OAC than Pullman,
and by so doing they admit that
they had better defeat OAC before
they set any just claim upon the
Northwest championship. If they
had defeated OAC by s good mar
gin, I would have believed that
they had some just claim, but as it,
I am firmly convinced that they
have r-leased all claim upon the
our record as it is, I see no just
reason why we are not champions
of the Pacific Northwest, and as
the University of Oregon has re
fused to accept our challenge, con
sidering that they had better first
successfully defeat OAC, we claim
the championship of the Pacific
We get all sorts of theatrical per
formances here but the plays of
plays of Shakespeare are rare, and
Shakespeare was the greatest of all
dramatic writers. . The intelligence
of the world . has for over 300
years bowed to his genius but the
recent demand for trifling farces;
unreal melodramas, musical plays,
has induced managers to give that
sort of mental pabulum to their
audiences and the works of the Di
vine Bard have been neglected,
much to the regret pt the better
class of theatregoers, so the -announcement
of the coming of the
eminent tragedian, John Griffith in
Shakespeare's-7 tragedy, "King
Richard, the Third." may be re
garded in the light of a welcome
novelty. Mr. Griffith carries a
particularly good company, com
plete scenic and costume investiture
all historically correct and other
needful aids to a perfect performance.
. IN JAIL NOW.
In Default of Oni Thousand Dollar
Bonds Charles Cams What
It appean probable now that Old
Tom, the chinaman that was beat
en last week by Charles Cams
will recover. He is understood to
be out of danger. After 1 0 days
from the hour the brutal beating
was administered the assailants li
ability for punishment for murder
in case of his victim's death will
have disappeared. That is the pro
vision of the law, which otherwise
stated means that a victim must die
within ten days for the assailants
liability for murder to attain.
Cains is in jail. His bail was
fixed by Justice Holgate at $ 1 ,000.
At that time the final outcome
of Tom's injuries could not be de
termined and a bail to fit the crime
was named. It is said that if Old
Tom recovers the court will lower
the bail, in which event it is claim
ed Cams relatives will give bonds
and secure his liberty. The wan
ton character of the attack has
aroused much indignation. The
fact that Tom was an inoffensive
old cripple has caused many a bit
ter denunciation of Cams. The
fact that Painter Enoch and Cams
were in the place together when
the outcry was made and rescue
arrived, has helped to increase pop
ular disgust with the cowardly
transaction. Had the Chinaman
died there would undoubtedly have
been hot tunes m the old town.
As there is no llikelihood of that
now, public sentiment is no better
natured although there is but one
view of the affair and that is une
quivocal condemnation. The af
fair happened in the Chinese laun
dry opposite Burnett's brick. Cap
tain Robinson is the citizen who
knowmoreof it than any other person
except Carns mend Enoch and
his statement of the case leaves lit
tle room for doubt as to the wan
toness and willfulness of the outrage'.
Captain Robinson was starting
home as the trouble occurred. As
he passed on to the crossing near
the Ghina house, he heard cries of
distress in the laundry. He hurried
to the place and tried to open the
door. A man stood inside with his
back against the door. It was
Enoch, the painter, who is suppos
ed to have accompanied Carns to
"When I tried to enter, the doer'
seemed barred, apparently Enoch
was standing with his back against
it," said Captain Robinson. "Then
he opened it, and backed out, clos--.iiii-
mg it. i asKed wnat was going on
in tiere and Enoch replied, 'the
Chinaman is fighting.' I said that
it sounded like somebody was mur
dering Old Tom and that I was go
ing in to stop it. You better not
do it, said Enoch, and I replied,
'That is just what I am going to
"I opened the door and when
Enoch saw that I was going in, he
entered ahead of me. Carns was
then bending overold Tom who was
i- iiii .i
lying prostrate ana nelpless on the
floor. Cams was stamping him in
the face with his foot, Enoch
seized Carns, pulled him away, and
and thrust him outside. 1 hen he
followed Carns up, pushing him
along in the direction of Homing's
and saying to him over and over
again, "get." After going, several
yards that way, Carns broke into a
run and disappeared.

GONE OUT OF TRAINING.
Scored Seventy Eight Points Four
Scored Against Them OAC
The OAC football team has gone
out of training. When the curtain
fell on the Willamette game, suits
were turned in. The men played
seven games, - sustaining but one
defeat. Among other games, they
administered a defeat of 28 to o to
Forest Grove. Nine to naught to
Columbia and played scoreless
games with the University of Ore
gon and the University of Wash
ington. The only defeat sustained
by them was at the hands of Wil
lamette University, and even that
illustrious aggregation was unable
to cross the Agrics goal line. The
aggregate of points made was 78
and the points scored against them
was four. They and Pullman are
the only: teams whose goal lines
were not crossed during the season .
The OAC men did not ; water
their field for the Eugene or any
other game. Nobody watered it.
The failure to defeat OAC natural
ly made some of the rooters over
sensitive. Maybe some of them
lost wagers. Things like that
makes bovs see visions. It doubt
less made them in this instance
magnify the mud into many times
its muddiness. It is not believed
that members of the U. of O. team
joined in the insinuations that the
field was watered. They are too
good sportsmen, doubtless to be
party to such baby play.
Eugene is not the only place
from which there was talk of mud
dy fields. From Seattle there came
a howl of mud on the Eugene field.
The University of Washington men
think they lost at Eugene because
the University of Oregon field was
muddy. They describe it as a sea
of mud. Here is the wavthe News-
Letter, the University paper talks
"After three days' hard travel
over temporary ; tracks on steam
boat and wagons, the Washington
Varsity arrived at Eugene, Oregon,
to play the next day, Tuesday,
Nov 20. against the Oregon , team
for championship of the Northwest.
"The gridiron was a mass of
mud, much of it being up to the
shoe-tops, while ibe remainder of
the field was adorned with, puddles
of water, varying from an inch to
a foot in depth. The rain was do
ing double duty, while a hard
gusty wind added its quota to the
general cheerfulness of the scene.
Into this the two teams waded, lined
and at the sound of the whistle be
gan swimming in each ' others di
rection." " '
Coach Norcross left for Seattle
Sunday. His plans are more': or
less indefinite. He has not been
engaged for next year, though he
is the unanimous choice of team,
student body, faculty and onlook
ers. His success has been phen-
omenal.Some of his players never
saw a game until tnis year. Few
of them were skilled in the game.
They were, however, sincere and
they went in with true spirit. They
tried to learn and Mr. Norcross
was a devoted teacher. The out
come was a season mat, surprisea
Of the team, only one graduates
this year. All expect to be back
next year, Most of them are
Freshmen, and by that token the
Northwest teams will have OAC to
reckon with as a serious factor for
several years to come. ;'" "
