charge of violating the local option law.
The Incident is a stop In the movement
by Deputy District Attorney Bryson to
cod the existence of the Corvallis So
cial and Athletic Club. The organiza
tion began burfnofs in this town about
August 1, -with the bold announcement
on the part of lta promoters that it could
do bttfltnese and. not be dislodged. The
operation of similar club at Lebanon,
Hood River and other dry-town points
were cited in proof of what could be
done. Enough athletic apparatus was in
stalled to carry out at least a semblance
of the professions set forth in the name
and articles of incorporation, but the main
appliance in the clubroom was a regula
tion bar with every kind ot drink In
bulk or otherwise.
Members Had Keys.
A considerable membership .rallied at
the dubroomsv each carrying a key of ad
mittance. Each paid a dollar membership
fee. and such assessments as the board of
trustees saw fit to lev.,. Ten days ago,
Deputy United Status Attorney Bryson
made an Initial move, when tne estanusn

and Merwln McMaines were arresod. tried
and sentenced to pay a fine of $300 each
for -violation of the local option law.
After that experience, McMaines, the vice
president, left Corvallis and took up his
residence at Independence. He promised
the authorities here that he would remain
there. Hlg assurances, however, were not
trusted, and they had him watched. Yes

Portland and took the train. The author
ities here had him taken from the train
at McMlnnvlllc by the Sheriff of Yamhill

been brought against the officers of the

Another feature of the situation Is that
the original case against Kline and Mc
Maines has been appealed to the Cir

the hands of the officers is known to
be of a character to demonstrate that
the principal mission of the club Is to
dispense liquor! The other three cases
are set for trial in the Justice Court at
Corvallis. September 25.
Two more complaints were filed by
Deputy District Attorney Bryson tonight
against officers of the Corvallis Social

ERRORS IN STATE CENSUS
CARELESS WORIC BY THE LOCAL
Klamath County's Population Re
ported Less Than Was Glrcn
by Federal Census.
SALEM. Or.. Sopt. IS. (Special.)
TJiat some very careless work has
been done In taking: the state census
Is evident from the returns thus far
received by Secretary of State Dunbar
from County Clerks. Only a few
counties have sent in their census
returns, but if the reports from these
few arc a fair sample of -what tne
whole will be, It may safely be said
that the census will be very unsatis
factory- Not only arc there many
glaring errors In minor details, but
the totals show that In the enumera
tion of population thorough work has
not been done.
The returns from Klamath County.
for Instance, will scarcely be pleasing
to the people of that growing section
of the state. The footings of the
column de'oted to population show
that Klamath has now 3836 Inhabi
tants, while the Federal census of
five years ago disclosed a population
of 3970, or 134 more. Only seven In
dians are reported as residing in
Klamath County, according to the
state census, taken by the Assessor.
while the Federal census contained
the Information that Klamath had
1136 Indians. Of the 3836 Inhabitants
reported In 1905 by the Assessor, 2220
are males and 1616 females. Thero are
1337 legal voters and 1047 men liable
for military duty.
The Klamath County returns also
fall to show the population of the
Incorporated cities, an item of in
formation always desired. Among the
minor errors are such as might be
due to clerical mistakes, such as
classing a woman or a minor as lia
ble to military duty. Errors of this
kind were apparently due to making1 a
mark Inadvertently in thc wrong- col
umn, and such errors make no ma
terial difference in the total. The
most Important matter is that of se
curing a full enumeration, and it Is
doubtful whether the people of
Klamath County will want to have
the records show a decrease In pop
ulation in the last five years.
OREGON CITY CENSUS MUDDLE
Enumerator Withholds Results Till
His Bill Is Paid.
OREGON CITY. Or.. Sept. 15. (Spe
cial.) "How old Is Ann?" Is easy of
solution when compared with the prob
lem of learning the census of Oregon
City, as It has been compiled by J. W.
McAnulty, who completed the enumera
tion today. Mr. McAnulty s work con
sists of a recount of the city's popula
tion made under the auspices of the
Board of Trade, with the understand
ing, however, that the expense inci
dental thereto was to be met by pri
vate subscription. The second , enu
meration was made as tne result of
some 'dissatisfaction with the work of
the Assessor's office which reported the
city's population. as 3837. This estimate
was considered Incomplete, and Mr. Mc
Anulty was employed to make a sec
ond enumeration. He has an unsatisfied
claim for $20 and until he Is compen
sated he refuses to make public the
result of his labors, which, however,
will probably not materially differ
from that of the Assessor's deputios.

Clyde B. Clancy, son of Captain C. E.
Clancy and nephew of the late Senator
John B. Allen, and formerly prominent In
social circles, was today adjudged Insane
and ordered committed to the asylum at
Fort Steilacoom. The grounds of the com
mitment are that Clancy Is a confirmed
kleptomaniac, and that he could not resist
the Impulse to steal almost anything he
could conveniently carry away.
This is the first time In this state that
kleptomania has been considered suffi
cient ground to warrant commitment to
an asylum for tho Insane. In Clancy's
case the court considered that his actions
showed an unbalanced mind, and that
kleptomania was nothing more nor less
than a form of insanity.
Clancy, according to tho statements ot
his parents, developed symptoms of klep
tomania while still a small boy In his
Sevoral months ago Clancy was arrest
ed on charges of taking grips and travel
ers' suit cases from tho Donnelly Hotel,
In this city. About the same time several
thefts of a like nature were reported from

Tacoma cases were dismissed. The Seat

and Clyde was sentenced to a term In the

said to have developed further evidences
of kleptomania, and his father decided to

State Board of Equalization Listens
to Arguments Against Work
OLYMPIA, Wash., Sept. 15. (Special.)
This was railroad day before the State
Board of Equalization, and the leading
arguments were presented by J. W. Mor
row. of Portland, tax commissioner of the
O. R. & X. Co., and G. S. Fcrnald, of St.
Paul, tax commissioner of the Northern
Pacific. John S. Snapp appeared for the
Great Northern. The principal point
made by all the speakers was that the
railroad companies are now paying taxes
on higher valuations -proportionately than
the other property of the state, and that
therefore their taxes should not be In
Mr. Fernald argued that in the last 12
years the total valuation of all property
in tho state had lncreasedfrom S2S6.O00.000
to 5311.O0.O00, or a lIttIe,more than 8 per
cent, while railroads bad Increased from
H4.O00,O to J2S.O00.0OO, or 100 per cent, and
their mileage had Increased less than 50
per cent. He said that statisticians
agreed that the normal increase In the
value of property In states like Wash
ington was about 20 per cent per year.
and that It was fair to assume that the
state had increased as much as 50 per cent
la that time. Instead of 8 per cent. Mr.
Fernald.satd the discrepancy was to be
louna-in tne iana valuations.
Mr Morrow declared that not 20 per
cent of tho .personal property In wash
lngrtonjwas on. the. tax. rolls. To substan
tiate his 'statements, he referred to bank
report i howing the .total zcoaey in baakz
In 1S04 to be nearly 547.0CC.00!), while the
amount returned by the Assessors was a
little over J2,00MW. and the total amount
of personal property in the state exceeded
the actual amount of cash In bank by
but little over J4.0CO.O00.
In reply to the argument that railroads
should be assessed on a value acertalned
by capitalizing their net earnings on a
basis ot 5 per cent, he said that this
basis applied to farming interests would
place an assessed valuation, for instance,
on Whitman County of $aC00,OCO.
Mr. Morrow also argued at length
against taking the so-called market prices
of stocks and bonds as a standard for
arriving at the value of railroad property.

The Laxative oP
There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California
Fip- Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the

of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect

Causes New Trial.
BAKER CITY, Or., Sept. 15. (Special.)
Robert W. Cecil, postmaster of Tipton,
was sentenced by Judge White, of the
District Court, this morning to be publicly
whipped by the Sheriff of this county. He
is to receive ten lashes across the bare
back. The sentence Is to be carried out
tomorrow, between the hours of 6 and S
A. M.. in the County Jail.
Cecil's wife had him arrested last month,
charging him with beating and otherwise
maltreating her. The immediate cause
of the beating, the wife claims, was her
refusal to furnish him with funds from
the till of the postoffice with which to
gamble and buy whisky. Judge White,
in delivering the sentence, uttered scath
ing rebuke which seemed utterly to humil
iate the man and so completely unnerve
him as to prostrate him with grief and
shame. Most men have approached the
gallows with less fear and more utter
abandon than this man. Judging from his
present condition, will show at tomorrow

who. a few months ago, treated the people
of Sumpter to a free wild West show,

drawing to a close the Judge .discovered
that the men had not been allowed to
plead. The predicament created quite a
commotion. The proceedings were de
dared all void. The case was commenced
anew, with another Jury, and after the
men had been permitted to say "not
