The Albany Homicide.
The Albany papers last week contained
"the testimony of Miss Mattie Allison, Thos.
ilout.fi tli and C. H. Stewart before the cur
Oner's jury, and the dying statement of
Charles Campbell. The coroner's jmy
found that Campbell came to his death at
the hands of Saunders, and Mi.ss Allison
was also held as an accomplice. They were
both arrested and lodged in jail, and on
Thursday of last week they waived examin
ation in the justices court and were held
without bail till the next session of the cir
cuit court, which meets uext Mar- h. The
testimony of Miss Allison before the coron
er's jnry is to the effect that she and Saun
ders had arranged a meeting with Campbell
at which meeting she expected trouble, but.
as she says, did not suppose there would be
any shooting. She also informed a third
party that Saunders was going to do her a
.great favor that night. She says that
Words passed lietween Saunders and Camp
bell when they met, but the latter's dying
statement is to the effect that not a won!
was passed between the two men before
Saunders did the shooting. The correct
ness of either statement will have consider
able bearing on the case. Before the case
comes to trial Saunders and Miss Allison
will haxe ample time for reflection on the
enormity of the crime.
Prof. T. F. Campbell and wife arrived in
Corvallis last Monday evening, and on the
following morning the Prof, began his labors,
in the Agricultural College. We append a
few of the coinpUmjuC try notices from our
valley exchanges on las appointment to a
chair iu this college:
""Prof. T. . Campbell of Eugene has been
elected to the chair of mathematics in the
Agricultural College at Jorvallis, with a sal
ary of $1600 per annum. The Prof, is a
man of great ability and will no doubt till
the position with credit to himself and ben
efit to the institution. Farmers desiring
their sous to become prosperous and leading
agricultural men, should avail themselves 01
a course of instruction iu the Agricultural
Colletfe. Farmers ueed agricultural educa
tion." "Tha BoaH of Regents of the Agricultur
al College, held a meeting on the 28th ult.,
to elect a successor to Prof. Jos. Emery, who
recently resigned the chair of mathematics
to take charge of the Klamath Agency. The
Board elected Prof. T. F. Campbell, A. M.,
of Eugene City. Prof. Campbell has been
eminent in the educational held for many
years not only in the Eisteru and Southern
states, but more especially iu Oregon. We
consider this a most excellent appointment
as Prof. Campbell is a man of great ability
and sterling worth."
He Left Unpaid Bills.
There came to C irvallis several monihs
a gay young tailor, who worked for Wm.
Morns until the time of the latter's decease,
when he opened a shop of his own on Main
street, where for a time he did a seemingly
thriving business and won the financial con
fidence of many of our citizens. About two
weeks ago he left, ostensibly for the pur
pose of making a short visit iu some other
section of the state, but up to the present
he has not returned, and it is not likely that
ha will, and an outraged public mourns sun
dry unpaid bills. 'Vats his name? It is

At this office.
Cruelty to Animals.
Some of our Bee ton county farmers seem .
to be wonderfully lacking in guarding their
own interests. During the late heavy rains
this ks been particularly noticable in the
fact that many who come to town from the
country will leave their horses standing in
the drenching rain all day long without any
thing to est or a blauket to protect them
from the inclement weather. This is not
only a cruelty to the poor dumb brutes but
is also a financial loss te the owner of the
animal, since it would cost no more than 25
or 50 cents to feed and protect him from the
atorm. This is not paid for or suggested by
Jivery-atable owners, but is prompted by
the fact that the poor horse the farmer's
best friend is seen from this office every
day deprived of his liberty, shivering in the
sold rain, while his nnmercifnl master, if
not around the pleasant fire in, some grog
shop, is evidently in better quarters than
be affords his faithful servant. 'A merciful
jssn is merciful to his servants," etc.

THE TSUE INWARDNESS
In Regard to the State Agricultural College
While the Governor's message, to the
present legislature, read last Wednesday, is
of much importance to the state at large;
vet to the people of Benton County it is of
much greater concern; more particularly in
regard to his attitude toward the State Ag
ricultural College. The people of the South
Methodist church attempted to raise money
ver a year ago to build an Agricultural
College bui ding, on the Agricultural Col
lege farm, adjoining Corvallis, which was
donated for the use of the State Agricul
tural College, by the citizens of the county.
The parties manipulating the South Mstho
dist College at Corvallis, (which was mainly
done by B. F. Burch) at the time the land
was deeded, hail the legal title conveyed to
a committee under the control of the South
Methodist church; instead of having tin
title to the Agricultural farm made to th
State, as the citizens intended, who sub
scribed their money to pay for it. So wh 1
the church people last year invited suliseri -Hons
to build an Agricultural College bui d
ing on said land, the money could not be
subscribed, because the people very just y
siid that they would not subscribe money
to build a State building on land the title to
which was held by a church. The South
Methodist Conference of 1S84 and also tin
Board of Regents of Con' a lis (South Meth
odist) College against B. F. Burch's pro
test voted to tender the Agricultural Col
lege back to the State, an 1 also annotated
F A.exander, committee to deed said Agricultural farm,
to 1 he State, to be used for State Agri
cultural College purposes. In accordance
with such directions the Agriclllt11r.il Col
lege was tendered to the State, through tin
last legislature and accepted by that txuly.

suggested that the law lie so amended aa to
postpone the appointment of the Board of
Re-'euts until some time approximating the
Kirobable erection of the College building."
Who informed the Covernor that no detri
ment had resulted to the institution because
the law had not been complied with in the
appointment and confirmation ot the Board
of Regents? Certainly it was not the peo
ple of Benton County who gave him such
false information, but the people of Benton
Jouuty, who had made the situation a study
ami were in position to know, gave hiin di-
n ctly the opposite information and politely
skedhunto assist them in remedy iug the !
difficulty. B. F. Burch and his lackeys
would circulate just such information as the
Governor says he had.
B. F. Burch on being questioned got up in
his christian like spirit before the Board of
Regents of Corvallis college a few days ago
and told them that his South Methodist
conference did not rescind its acts of the
year before; but he told them what was
false and so he would cause to be communi
cated to the Governor false information if
he thought it would answer his Christian (?)
like manipulations. If the Governor has
been deceived in this matter the people of
Benton county will be pleased for him tc
correct it at an early moment. If he does
not correct it our people will calculate that
Burch has a valuable assistant in the en
deavor to force the church on the college and
in the event that it can not be done to force
the Agricultural College away from Cor
vallis. We still believe and hope to learu that
the Governor is mistaken on account of
Having been imposed upon by erroneous in
formation and the people of Benton county
will be ouly ton well pleased to site this
gloss wrong made right by an early correc
tion. Otherwise the consequences will lie
visited upon those who are working against
the interest of Benton county in the endeav
or to thrust the Agricultural college away
from there. It is enough for the citizens of
iJenton county to be opposed in the good
work by such an unconsciousable schemer
and political church man as Burch and let
State officers do their duty under the laws
as plainly pointed out to them.
