FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 7, 1907
As Portland Elected,
In spite of the fact that the vot
ing population is four to one repub
lican, Portland has elected a demo
cratic mayor. The phenomenal re
sult is another manifestation of the
trend of the time. Massed on one
side was the vicious element and a
"machine," and on the other the
columns that stand for clean civic
conditions and non-partisan govern
mpnh As is inevitable in snch
cases, in spite of the claims of par
txr Hip hetter element won. It will
continue to be so as time rolls on.
The world U getting better, and the
standard of citizenship rising
Howdy ism and dissipation is waste
of substance, and the people are
coming to know it. Life, soberly
and correctly lived is trial enough
without the loss that riotous living
-entails. It is for the ultimate go
of the vicious when they are re
strained from excesses, and wheth
er they know it or not, the better
element does. The latter is in the
majority in every city whenever the
issue is brought out squareiy, rorr
land among the rest.
Harry l,ane stood for cleanliness
and the ' 'nublic weal' ' rather than
party claims, and he won with i
handsome majority to his credit
He is a clean, straightfoiward citi
zen, an honest and capable mayor,
and his re-election, a credit to Port'
land. It is a hint to the rest of the
state of the trend of the time,
which is, that partisan politics, the
ward heeler, the rounder ana otner
ontoward agencies of government
Though the news dispatch did
not specify, the experienced public
will insist on believing that the
child that talked so glibly at only
nine days of age. must have been
of the gentler sex.
Having learned that when yet on
Sths stage, Mabelle Gilman Corty
became enraged at the stage direc
tor and kicked her music into the
orchesti?, the country is encourag
ed to hope that her kicking powers
may become as perfect as those of a
Missouri mule and be turned on her
For contrariness, the man who
lias just died at 84, after being giv
en up by the doctors 40 years ago,
is the limit.
It is to the credit of both that
Mayor-elect Lane of Portland' spent
his boyhood in Corvallis. If not
actually born in the town, his es
cape from that distinction was nar
row. That he had fights with the
boys and at one time had a bad
case of itch here are incidents that
Mayor Lane often mentions remin

CARVED ANOTHER KORSE.
Adit had to be Shot Who did the
Deed, is the Question.
' A second horse on the farm of J.
W. Hamlin, two miles across the
Willamette from Corvallh, has paid
the forfeit of falling into the hands
of man or men more brute than hu
man. Hw a two-year old colt was
cut and slashed in the body until
the intestines hung out and the an
imal had to be despatched, was
told recently in the times. It was
a 1,300 pound animal and a $200
cash offer lor it had been refused
by the owner. The hand that did
the cutting is not definitely known,
though suspicions have from the
first been entertained. It now de
velops that in the midnight visit
when the colt was so mutilated, an
other horse met with the same
treatment. The latter was found,
horribly cut the other day, and was
in such a condition that it had to be
shot. There was a loag knife
slash forward, low down in the
flank, but not deep enough to reach
the intestines, as had evidently
been intended. There was still an
other slash in the lower abdomen,
ranging upward, but it too failed to
penetrate the cavity. In the fleshy
part of the shoulder were two deep
stabs, as though the atimal had
been restive under the punishment,
and the fiend had stabbed it twice
in his anger.
The scene of this wanton mutila
tion of an innocent and faithful
horse must have been a grand spec
tacle for this civilized 20th cen
tury. The horse was not found
until several days after the colt was
killed, though both are supposed to
nave been attached at the same
Both horses belonged to J. W.
Hamlin, who is an estimable and
honorable citizen. He has resided
in the vicinity for 16 years, and
has never had trouble to warrant
such procedure. Two years ago
Herman Stahlbusch told him John
was getting to be a bad man, and
that it was a hard matter to do any
thing with him. The case is one
that calls for a vigorous investiga
tion, and a penalty to fit the crime.

Celebrated at Presbyterian Church
Promptly at twelve Wednesday,
Washington State College grasped
hands with O. A. C. This union
was prompted by the matrimonial
alliance celebrated at this hour be
tween Professor Solon Shedd, tf
the former, and Mrs. Jeannette
Bell Wimberly, of the latter col
lege. The ceremony took place at
the First Presbyterian church of
Corvallis, Dr. J. R. N. Bell, the
bride's father officiatinz.
There were present three score or
more of the bride's friends, who
were escorted to their seats by the
ushers, E. E. Wilson and J. B.
Horner. The artistic floral decora
tions were due to Mesdames John
Smith, Minnie Lee, J. O. Wilson
and S. N. Wilkins. After a vocal
selection by Miss Essie Bell. Lo
hengrin was rendered by Mi s
Pearl Horner, while the wedding
paity marched in, following the
flower girls, Helen Smith and Es
ther Hayes, the latter of whom was
also ring bearer. The bride was
presented by her brother Lloyd.
After the impressive ceremony, the
party returned, treading on-white
roses which covered the walk to the
manse. A delightful banquet was
awaiting. It was surrounded by
banks of LaFrance roses overshad
owed by vases that were literally
loaded with other roses of many
and strange varieties. Candelabra
were lighted as the bridal party en
tered, mingling the mellow pink
and heavier garnet of the lamp
shades with the softer yellow which
the room decorations effected, giv
ing to the banquet halls an effect
not wholly unlike the early morn
ing light as it first creeps into a
conservatory. This was to repre
sent the mcrning hour. After an
instrumental selection by Miss Vera
Horner, breakfast was served. At
the close of which, Mr. E. E. Wil
son, Professor Shedd, Dr. Cathey,
Mrs. Shedd and Dr. Bell responded
to toasts, and Miss Lulu Spangler
rendered two of her prettiest vocal
The bride was richTy dressed in a
gown of embroidered jusu especial
ly selected in Manila for the occa
sion by Miss Lois Stewart, a grad
uate of O. A. C. Her bearing was
commanding and sincere.

The first letters were received
this morning from J. M. Nolan,
who left for Ireland more than a
month ago. The first was written
at Cork, and relates that he was
traveling with a party of New York
friends, and a young man from As
toria. With the others he visited
Blarney Castle and kissed the
"Blarney Stone." The latter he
says, involved some difficulty, re
quiring him to lie down on his
chest and , reach out to kiss the
stone. "However, I. did4 a gbod
job, all right," he adds. The oth
er letter was from Dublin, Mr. No
lan's old home. No former friends
of the old time had yet been en
countered! but he was expecting
shortly afterward to start out on a
search for them. He will be in
Dublin two weeks. , ,
