THE CORNING OREGONIAN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1903.
APOSTLES ARE GDNEl
Leaders of "Holy Rollers"
Take to Flight
ESCAPE TAR AND FEATHERS
Creffield and Brooks Accept Officers
Advice to Leave the Town
Sacrifices at Other j-iouses
, Than Hurt's.
CORVALL1S, Or., Nov. 2. (Special.)
Creffield and Brooks, the "Holy Roller"
apostles, who led the way la the recent
spectacular plays ot the sect In this town,
have quitted Corvallis. Their .going was
as hasty as their work was fierce- A fear
or boaily harm Is supposed to hare been
incident to their departure.
The bherifC stayed In the house the most
of Saturday night, extending the pro
tection of the law. At noon that day a
member of the sect, accompanied by his
son, entered the sheriff's office, saying,
"As an American citizen I demand pro
tection' The sheriff assured the caller
that all possible protection would be af
forded, but added that if Creffield and
Brooks were sent away the chief element
of danger would be removed.' "If this
office canfiot afford us protection I shall
appeal to the Governor," was the parting
declaration of the caller as he left the
office. That evening, in the expectation
that the spirit of Halloween might Inject
mischief Into the situation. Sheriff Bur
nett went to the Hurt house and remained
most of the .night. Though the house was
surrounded by people until a late hour
there was no demonstration.
Creffield and Brooks left town late yes
terday afternoon. The report is that both
were anxious to get away early In the
day. A crowd was about the house nearly
all the time, however, and the apostles
were unwilling, according to all accounts,
to attempt departure under such condi
tions. Along toward supper time last
night, nearly all the onlookers left the
vlcii.ity, and Brooks took the opportunity
to leave. He traveled afoot, and nothing
is known as to where he went. It Is
possiole that he Is In hiding with some
of his sect In town, but this is contrary to
CCneral opinion. S
An hour later Creffield also left the
house. A buggy, driven by a member of
tiie sect, appeared at the door of the house
and Creffield came Our and entered hur
riedly. The buggy drove rapidly away,
going south, and It is understood that the
destination was some of the east side
towns, where the southbound -overland
could be taken. ,
The situation In which the officers found
things at the Hurt house when they took
the apostles into custody did much to
arouse public feeling, and it Is probable
that the departure of the two men would
have become a necessity. When released
by a deputy sheriff from the jail after
the examination for sanity, the men were
warned that their personal safety was
at stake, and that they had better get out
of town. It Is well known that a body
of men. If matters proceeded unchecked,
fun Intended to call on the apostles, to
take them across the Willamette, and
there to order them to go; and that if
they neglected to obey, perhaps to admin
ister tar and feathers.
It has developed that the Hurt house
is not the only place where articles were
"burned. The destruction of so-called
worldly things has been done at other
houses in town. A fire In a back yard
at 4 o'clock a few mornings ago aroused
ntighbors from their beds with the belief
that a conflagration was on. In the back
jard referred to there was a bonfire, and
among the fuel were several easy chairs
and other articles of use and value. This
was at the Starr house in the north end of
town. In all there are about half a dozen
1 ouses, at which, in whole or in part, the
families belong to the "Holy Rollers."
The personal appearance of the members
of the sect creates muclli comment. The
jes are sunken, and their faces haggard.
There is a whiteness and wanness of com
plexion that almost startles.
MUST PAY HEAVY INTEREST.
Ctatsop County and Astoria Affected
by Tax Decision.
ASTORIA. Nov. 2. (Special.) Clatsop
County, the City of Astoria and Astoria
school district will be greatly affected
by the recent decision of the State Su
preme Court relative to the tax law, as
all are in debt, and If no tax levies can
be made will be compelled to pay a
large amount In Interest on funds neces
sary for the running expenses. The city
will suffer the greater injury, not alone
on account of Jts heavier debt, but be
cause under the charter the levy is
limited to 10 mills and the amount lost
cannot be replaced by an additional levy
the following year. This county Is pe
culiarly interested In the calling of a
special session of the legislature, for In
case one Is convened a special election
must be held here to-elect a State Senator
to succeed Senator Fulton, who resigned
after his election as United States Sena
tor. At the recent session of the legislature
a new charter for the City of Astoria was
passed, the principal provision of which
was to change the time of holding the
city elections from December until June
and to provide that a complete new set
of city officers should be elected in June,
1?W. The bill was obpected to by a large
number of citizens and in response to a
numorously signed petition sent him,
Governor Chamberlain vetoed the meas
ure. Action on the Governer's veto will
be taken at the special session, should
one be called, and for that reason the
campaign for the election of 'a State
Senator will "be waged on that Issue.
MOVE FOR ANNEXATION.
Cosmopolis Wants tc Be Joined to
ABERDEEN, Wash., Nov. 2. (Special:)
A strong movement Is on foot fop the
annexation of the town of Cosmopolis to
Aberdeen. During the past three days
delegations of the citizens of Cosmopolis
have been in Aberdeen making preliminary
arrangements for holding the necessary
special election. It Is said that all of the
property-owners of Cosmopolis. with the
exception of the Gray's Harbor Com
mercial Company and half a dozen oth
ers, are more than anxious to be annexed.
The attempted vacation by the City
Council of a large portion of the town
site on petition of the Gray's Harbor
Commercial Company, together with the
intimation coming from that corporation
that a movement for the disincorporation
of the town was on foot, are the things
whieh started the annexation among tthe
independent residents of Cosmopolis. It Is
alleged by them that the Gray's Harbor
Commercial Company Is adverse to the
growth of the town and would be clad
to disincorporate the municipality and
make it strictly a mill settlement, to be
governed by the county board instead
of by tho local Council. To forestall this,
the element opposed to tho big company
wants the townslte annexed to Aberdeen,
to be governed by the Aberdeen Council.
It is said the matter of disincorporation
of a town like Cosmopolis is simple, re
quiring only a majority vote. So also
annexation requires only a majority vote,
and the Cosmopolis citizens who came to
Aberdeen to meet tho business men hero
claim that they have the votes to carry
That the meteor discovered near Oregon City Is the largest over found, surpassing
Lieutenant Peary's famous find. Is thb assertion of A. W. Miller, who sends The Or
gonlan the following descriptive letter from Trcraont, Or.:
The aerolite recently discovered r.car Oregon City, as described In Saturday's Ore
Eonian, Is worthy of more than passing consideration. Having visited the rnetcorito la
company with Mr. C McKay, of Portland, who took the photograph enclosed herewith,
I found upon measuring It that it Is ten feet long by seven feet wide and Ave feet high,
which I think entitles Oregon to the honor of having the largest meteorite yet discov
ered, being larger than the great meteorite discovered by Lieutenant R. E. Peary 'some
ten years ago near Cape York, at the northern end ot Baffin's Bay in Greenland, which,
according to the measurements made by Mr. George F. Kunz, is eight and one-half feet
in length, a few Inches over five feet In height and five feet wide, which Is enormous .
as compared with meteorites previously discovered. Its weight has been estimated at
SO to 100 tons, which still leaves our Oregon meteorite the largest ever known.
Aerolites vary In size from ten feet long down to th sire of shot, weighing from
100 tons to one-half a gram, and aredivided into three classes: First, meteorites com
posed of metals consisting mostly of natural Iron with from five to ten per cent of
nickel In alloy and usually containing a small per cent of cobalt, manganese, chromium,
copper and tin, and are generally known as slderltes or iron meteorites. The one which
fell at Canon Dlabalo, Arizona, some years ago disclosed a small black-diamond In Its
center when sawed. Second, slderolltes or meteors composed of about half stone and
half Iron and ae'rolltes or meteoric stones interspersed with particles of iron. Some 22
elements have been found In moteors, seven of which are metals and fifteen are
earthy elements. Aerolites, or fire-balls as they were called by our ancestors, havo
fallen upon our planet ever since man was capable of recording anything. The first
we have any record of fell at Agristopotml. near Athens. Greece, in 407 B. C., as re
corded by Pliny, and they have been falling since all over the globe. But not until
about the beginning of the last century were they considered worthy of Tiotlco except
by astronomers or feared by the superstitious, and it has only been within the latter
part of the last century that scientists have shown much interest in these celestial
Immigrants which come to us at such enormous speed through ths air that they are

times they reach the earth la groups like tho "fall" at New Cgncord, Ohio, In May. 1SC0.
Others reach tho earth with such force that they enter the ground to some depth, re

annexation. A special election would
have to be called in both towns and the
project of annexation would have to carry
in both places. There is hardly a man
In aberdeen but who would favor the pro
posal of annexation, and If the Cosmopo
Hs people are right in their contention
that they can carry the "question" at
home, the election may be looked upon
as good as carried. One of the advan
tage sto result from annexation would be
that it would make Aberdeen a city of the
second class, instead of the third class.
This would give the city government of
the proposed new city much broader pow

standing of the city In the state. Aber

OREGON CITY, Or., Nov. L (Special.)
Judge T. A. McBride today convened the
November term of the Clackamas County
Circuit Court. The Jurors were dismissed
from attendance on the court until next
The day was occupied largely by the
Judge In making minor orders and enter
ing a few divorce decrees. Divorces were
granted as follows: B. C. vs. Carrie B.
Golden, Frank vs. Lillian Partridge. Six
divorce cases that have been pending in
tho court for months and In which both
parties are nonresidents of this county,
but at the same time live In the state,
were today stricken from the docket.
They were: Theresa Ordway vs. Charles
Ordway; Walter W. Ray vs. Lillian Ray;
Miller Weiss vs. J. M. Weiss; Louisa
Stranger vs. Jacob M. Stranger; Mary B.
Schley vs. W. C Schley, and John Schad

Default was entered In these divorce
suits: John A. Lofquist vs. Susan Lof

R. L. Adkins vs. Mary Adklns. The suit
of Vlrglna May Vorhcws vs. Fred Vorhews
was dlmissed on motion of the plaintiff.
Two other actions were dismissed as fol
lows: H. L. Kelly, trustee, vs. T. F. Ryan;
I. B. Madison vs. L. El Armstrong et al.
A number of cases having been settled
outof .court, were dropped from the
docket They were: Catherine Gibbons
vs. George and Lena Doll; H. E. Cross vs.
P. H. Morley; J. P. Ridings & Son vs.

After hearing the testimony In the case
of Sarah Coad vs. Charles WHkins, her
former husband, for the custody of a 5-year-old
son, the court awarded the child
to Its grandmother, Mrs. Martha Camp
bell, of Salem. The plaintiff represented
in her petition that It was the under
standing between herself and divorced
husband at the time the divorce was
granted, that she should have the custody
of the boy, but it seems that the husband
retained the child when he secured the
divorce decree. In defense of the woman's
petition for the child, the husband testified
that the present husband of his former
wife Is a barkeeper, and on this showing
the court gave the child to Its grand
mother. The court decrees that neither
of tho children of the divorced couple is
to be' removed out of the jurisdiction of
the court. v"

NOME'S GOLD PRODUCTION.
Dr. Whitehead Estimates It at Six

effort each season to ascertain tho pro-
TLARGER THAN PEARY'S FAMOUS PINT).
The origin of these celestial visitors is unknown, but it is generally conceded that
they are asteroids or planetary dust, fragments of which come together from time to
time, and coming within our atmosphere In their rapid flight they become Ignited. Many
are burned out when they reach us and are called slderolltes like the one which was seen
to fall near McMlnnville several years ago and Is now in the possession of tho writer.
Others are-solid matter of metal like the one fl?und near Oregon City. Yet they con
tain no elements not previously known to be of terrestlal origin. Nevertheless these
strangers are wonderful and interesting subjects, coming to us from the mysterious
depths of space and present tho only tangible evidence we possess of the 'composition
of other members of th solar system. The similar chemical composition existing in
many of them gives us an idea of the probable origin and internal construction of our
own planet and also furnishes us with evidence regarding the unity of the elements
throughout the entire universe, thus making each new fall of more importance not only
to tho astronomer, but especially to the chemist, mineralogist and geologist. Though
these meteoric stones are but specimens of celestial bodies occasionally sent to us from
the unknown depths of space, they exemplify the same chemlcaUand crystalographlcal
laws as the rocks of our earth and have not given any new elements or principles, al
though the discovery of nickel steel armor plates originated by observing the alloy of
nickel and iron in the meteors.
The tendency of people to exaggerate the extraordinary naturally makes one a
littlo suspicious of the many stories we hear about the fall of meteors, and the writer
need only refer to the one seen here about a year ago when many who saw it passing
through the heavens declared that they saw It fall within but a short distance, one
party declaring that a piece dropped in his dooryard, which proved to be but furnace
slag from the Iron furnace at Oswego, where the barkeeper lived. Another meteor was
seen to fall in the yard of tho railroad shops at Alblna and wan dug up by a schoolboy
who had seen it fall and who sold It to the janitor of the school fof a dollar, which
proved to be only a pleco of polished pot metal, but then barkeepers and schoolboys
are not all "George Washlngtons." And it is to e regretted that the monstrous mass
of nickel steel near Oregon City Is to become a subject for litigation and that the only
orts to be benefited by Its discovery fire likely to be the attorneys, which frequently
follows the finding of aerolites, though were It not for the parties who made the dis
cover! and brought it out. It might have remained burled in its secluded spot many
ductlon of each of the large companies
and estimates with care the amount pro
duced by small operators; Dr. White
head's estimate of the gold production
of the Nome region' for the season just
closed Is $6,000,000. This Is an increase of
$500,000 over the productloa of 1902, an
increase of $1,500,000 over the production
of 1901 and about $1,750,000 over that of

SEASIDE. Or. Oct. 31. (To the Edi

30 under the caption of "War On at Sea
side," In which It was stated that on
election would be held at Seaside on
December 7 for the purpose of taking In
all tho property west of the Necanlcum
River, except Hermosa Park, Is errone

and none could be held for that purpose.
Municipal corporations are only created
by an act of the Legislature, and no city

charter, to hold a special election for the
purpose of taking In an adjoining suburb.
Some time ago a petition was circulated
among the owners of property in tho

of the town of Seaside, to have Its char

lying west of the Necanlcum within the
corporate limits of Seaside, but the peti

saloons on the west side of the river.

A large majority of the people of Sea
side aro not in favor of extending tho
corporate limits of the town to include
that section. The town limits are suffici
ently large at present for all purposes,
and to take in the west side would entail
a large expense In building sidewalks and
making necessary Improvements. Seaside
Is out of debt and has $1000 in the treas

twentieth of 1 mill could be levied.
The statements published relative to
the saloons being located in tho heart

extent by the Town Marshal stopping

to stop it If they have to refuse a
license to the saloons offending. A largo
majority of the people of Seaside propose

CONFIDENCE IN MOODY.
Democratic Chairman White's Opin
ion of the Charge Against Him.
ENTERPRISE, Or., Oct 30. (Special.)
Many of tho leading people of the county
are here attending the session of the Cir
cuit Court and when the papers were
received announcing that Hon. Malcolm
A. Moody had been indicted by the United
States grand jury, coming as It did on the
heels of the Indictment of Receiver Thom
son, there was general expression of there
being nothing to tho charge but a piece of
political Jobbery and spite work. District
Attorney Sam White, chairman of tho
Democratic State Central Commlttde, in
an interview said:
"I am surprised and shocked beyond
measure by the action of the Federal
grand Jury In returning an indictment
against the Hon. Malcolm A. Moody. I
cannot believe that there Is or can be any
truth whatever In tho charge made against
him. I know Mr. Moody personally, and
have always regarded him as a man of
the highest integrity, both personally and
politically, and I have no reason as yet to
change my opinion In the slightest degree.
These charges, dug up after all these
years and pushed at this time, when it Is
a well-known fact that Mr. Moody wllf
be a candidate for the Republican nomina
tion for Congress next Spring, naturally
make one suspicious."

ceeding Himself as Mayor.
ALBANY. Or., Nov. 2. (Special.) The
first scene In the hottest political cam
paign in tho history of Albany politics
was enacted in this city today, when both
Republicans and Democrats held their
primaries. m The primaries were held
under the rules of the Australian ballot
law, according to the provision of the last
session of the Legislature. This gave
aspirants for political honors a chance
to work and they certainly took advant
age of the opportunity. All day cabs and
) carriages were carrying voters to the
polls and candidates were working a3
they have never worked before In Albany.
The fight was principally between rival
candidates for the nomination on the Re
publican ticket The city Is Republican
and Democrats were not clamoring for an
opportunity to offer themselves as a sac
rifice. The followers of Bryan had but
ono ticket In the field in each ward.
On the other hand there were two Re
publican tickets in the field In each ward,
and the henchmen of the various candi
dates worked hard. More voters were
rounded up than in any primary In previ

Van Winkle, desiring to succeed himself
as City Recorder, and G. W. Wright, a
candidate for the same position. These
men had been at work for a month past
and both were confident of victory to
day. The Van Winkle tickets were elect
ed in the First and Third wards; the
Wright ticket InVthe Second. As many
Barnes were on bovth tickets, the fight in
the convention will determine the suc
Dr. W, H. Davis will be renominated for
Mayor, and H. B. Cusick will be renomi
nated for Treasurer by tho Republicans.
The candidates for Councilmen cannot bo
determined until the convention Wednes
day. The Democrats will probably nomi
nate J. K. Weathcrford for Mayor. W. S.
Risley for Recorder and W. A. McClain
for Chtef of Police. Of these, the last
mentioned is almost sure to be re-elected.
The other men are preparing to carry on
one of the .fiercest 30-day campaigns Al
bany has seen for many years.
