iempekance Alliance. The Oregon
State lemperance Alliance, held at Albany,
last week, was a most interesting and prof
itable gathering, and the attendance espe
cially upon .the first day, was unusually
large. Judging from the interest and earn
est zeal of the delegations from the various
parts of the State, there is, evidently, a
most encouraging revival on the subject of
temperance in Oregon. We regret that cir
cumstances, beyond our control, compelled
na to return home on Thursday p. m. Cor
vallis, however, was ably represented to the
close of the session on Friday. From the
number of badges floating in the breeze, the
Blue Ribbon organization is taking a deep
hold upon the people everywhere. May
the good work continue to go forward until
every rumshop in the land is closed, and
the evils of intemperance forever banished
from our fair State.
That Report. That long-looked for and
most astounding public document, the report
of the Investigating Committee, appointed
by the last Legislature,is now before the
public in pamphlet form. Only 250 copies
were ordered printed, but Mr. E. M. Waite,
m answer to urgent requests, from all parts
of the State, printed a few hundred extra
copies, which are now on sale, as will be
seen by his "ad.," under "New this Week."
a limited number are on sale by Messrs, Al
len & Woodward, at the postoffice, in this
city. If you desire to be posted upon some
of the most important questions that will
engage public attention during the next po
litical campaign, you should not fail to se
cure a copy of this report. It is rich, rare
and racy, in its detail, and unearths some of
the most stupendous frauds ever perpetrated
by those in authority in this State and even
excels Boss Tweed in some points. It will
be a handy thing to have in the house. Call
early and secure a copy.
B. R. C The Corvallis Blue Ribbon
Club met last Saturday evening, as per, an
nouncement, in the College chapel. The
chapel was filled, showing that the people of
Corvalles and vicinity are alive on the tem
perance question. The Club now numbers
nearly three hundred. Dr. Bayley, Presi
dent, called the meeting to order, and ma.de
some very interesting and pointed remarks,
and was followed by Revs. Emery, Hanna,
McCain, and others, interspersed with mu
sic, MissAddie Allen presiding at the organ.
The meeting was a success and quite a large
accession made to the roll of members. It
was voted to continue the meetings regu
larly, once a week, and adjourned to meet
at the M. F. church next Saturday evening
at 7 o'clo3k. The executive committee were
instructed to provide speakers, anil commit
tees on music and finance were appointed.
Harbor of Refuge. Last week we pub
lished the official reports of the survey of
Cape Foulweather as a harbor of refuge, and
this week publish the official report on
Port Orford, so that our readers can judge
for themselves which is the better point of
the two. We also give, in another column,
a verj able communication on this subject,
trom one of our prominent citizens, signed
" Mariner." This is a subject of the great
est importance to the people of this State
and to the entire coast, as well. It is no
merely local matter ; but takes place among
the most important problems connected
with the future growth and prosperity, of our
commonwealth, and with it are intimately
connected some of the grandest enterprises
that vitally affect the commerce of the
northwest coast. Will our people awake to
the importance of this public necessity, and
with one united voice demand a respectful
consideration at the hands of Congress ?
Now is the time for action. Delays are

f THE SCANDAL CASE.
As a faithful and impartial journalist it
becomes our duty to record many things
that we would gladly, as a private individ
ual, let pass without notice. . But whenhe
peace and harmony of community is broken
up, and acts of the darkest and most damn
ing character are perpetrated, we dare not
remain silent, lest that 3ileuce be misinter
preted as an indorsement of the criminal.
In order to correct many vague rumors that
are afloat, we will give, briefly, the facts in
the case, so far as they have come to our
knowledge. On Monday, of last wees,
Frank Rayburn, our City Marshal, was ar
rested upon the complaint of Miss Mary
Brown, charged with seduction. Upon a
preliminary examination before W. H. John
son, J. P., he was held to answer at the Circuit-
Court, in the sum of 400. Bonds
were given and he was discharged from cus
todyl On Friday following he was rc-arrest-ed
on the charge of an attempt to produce
abortion and had a hearing before Julius
Brownson, J. P., of Philomath and bonds
fixed at !j?8P0. Failing to give bonds he was
committed to jail, where he si ill remains.
On Monday of this week Mis Mary Brown
was arrested on the charge of administering
drug3 to herself for the purpose of produc
ing abortion. The matter was heard before
Squire Johnson, aud the accused discharged.
And here the nwtter rests for the present.

Passing Away. The large concourse of
people in attendance upon the funeral of our
late respected fellow-citizen, Mr. George F.
Dennick, last Sabbath, was proof of the
high esteem m which he was held in this
community. After brief religious services
at the hoitse, by Rev. W. C. Kantner, the
remains were followed to the Grave by a
goodly number of Masons and Odd Fellows,
in appropriate regalia, and numerous citi
zens. The funeral ceremonies, at the grave,
were conducted by the Masons, at the close
of which the Odd Fellow brethren deposited
their sprigs of acacia, and mingled their tears
of sympathy and love. It was a most im
pressive and solemn occasion. Mr. Dennick, j
by hisNionest, honorable dealings, and cour- t
tcous demeanor, made hosts of friends, who
deeply mourn their loss "but mourn j

AMES' IMPROVEMENT 'IN APPARATUS
PRESERVING MEATS. ETC..
11HE ADVANTAGES CLAIMED FOR
this wonderful discovery are these :
1. Meats can be preserved Perfectly
Fr;!Bl for an indefinite length of time in
an open vessel ; that is, a ve3el with a cloth
tied over it, or with a snugly fitting cover.
NO SEALING UP REQUIRED.
2. Vegetables of kiid. if sound,
can also be preserved indefinitely, and with
out drying or cooking.
3. Any clean vessel of wood, stone, or
glass, that will hold water, may be used to
contaiu the article preserved.
4. ' The process is so simple that a child of
ten years old can operate it, and there is MO
toniger of mistakes.
5. As used, neither the material nor pre
served articles are 1 13 jtsrioim lo tin
il;;ii!E9, nor is the flavor of the article
preserved in the least a Feeted.
6. The apparatus, se :ret, directions in
full, and right to use in Liie family only, arc
7. The entire additional expense for ma
terials, will not ev: d lVJ-ai!y-fi v"
cents for preserving 100 pounds of meat
or for preserving a barn I (30 gallons) of veg
etables. 8. The materials use 1 can usually be ob
tained at any drug store, and prepared at
odd times, when a person is not otherwise
busy, and kept on hand for future use.
9. Neither flies or vermin will ever
disturb meat preserved by this process.
1 0. Meatsfthat have become taint cd can
be restored to their original condition, and
then kept sweet indefinitely.
11. Experiments do not justify giving a
guarantee in regard to fruits. But the prob
abilities aie, that large, solid fruits, such as
apples, pears, etc., can be preserved. Ber
ries and solt fruits are considered doubtful.
12. We will agres to verify all the above
statements under a forfeiture of $300
gold coin, incase we fail in any particular;
Provided, that in case we succeed, the par
ties calling for the trial shall pay our neces
sary traveling and hctel expenses to the

pay us for our time and trouble the sum .of
S100 gold coin. Both sums, as well as suf
ficient to cove traveling and hotel expenses
to be deposited in responsible, disinterested

A copy of the above, properly signed, is
given to the purchaser of every Bight, and
