TALK ON THE SIDE. .
It is hoped' that all persons who
read the Gazette do not form an idea
of the amount of business done in this
eity and the jiumber of business
houses there are here. At present
there are two dry goods' establish
ments, two furniture, on? hardware,
two m. d's, one attorney-at-law, one
Hotel, one laundry, one barber shop,
and one saloon, that are helping the
Gazette to live by' patronizing its ad
vertising columns. There . is not a
grocer here who is advertising his bus
mess through these columns. Let's
see: Six dealers in groceries, three
drug stores, three meat markets, two
merchant tailors, three dry goods
houses, two banks, three gun stores
two barbur shops, one photograph
gallery, one foundry, one marble
works, three hotels, two livery stables,
one cigar factory, four real estate bro
kers, ind several other places, besides
numerous lawyers all these are not
known through the Gazette's adver
tising columns, and the prospects are
very good that most of them never
will be. Of course, some of them
are friends to the other weeklies here.
and throw their advertising patronage
that way; but, even then, those papers,
like the Gazette, do not receive one
fonrth in return the good they are
doing Corvallis. Tf all these "fellows"
were to appropriate $2 each of their
monthly earnings towards advertising
in our columns, what would be the re
sult) We could afford to print a
weekly edition which would be second
only to the Portland and Salem news
papers, and certainly, their business
would increase somewhat, besides they
would be aiding in tne development
of their "precious little" city. The
Gazette does not believe that a 4
oolumn ad. rurvone month will return
as much to the advertiser as a one-half
column inserted for eight months; for
in the latter case, it can be changed
every fourth week, more or less, and,
by having it worded in an attractive
manner, it is bound to catch the eyes
of the reading public.
So much for this week. Probably
the time taken up in scribbling off the
above is wasted, but b is a true case of
t3ie condition of things in the news

So mote it be; tempus fugit; or
eharco with some ads.

AN INDEPENDENT OPINIOA
f The N.rYt Herald is a pronounced
independent newspaper, but it has al
ways supported the policy ot the dem
ocratic party, except during the war for
the Union, when that party persist
ently obstructed every act ol President
Lincoln for - the suppression of the re
bellion. As the most powerful anti
republican journal in the country,
therefore, its opinions on the political
situation are .always interesting and
entertaining. The following editoml,
in a lat9 number of the Herald, will
command attention' for- the plain
truths that it conveys. It is entitled,
"the president and his party."
"Some republican journals speak
spitefully of their president, "and lead
ing republican politicians everywhere
though carefully silent in public, in
private conversation use very harsh
words about Mr. Harrison. There
upon we notice some democratic
journals pick their flints and take a
shot at the poor fellow also, and de
clare hopefully that Mr. Harrison and
his party are going to pieces.
"We -should like to see the republi
can party going to pieces. But we
are not of those who believe it will
split upon that rock. When it flies
apart it will be because a large and
constantly increasing number of its
voters demand more liberal commer
cial laws. Tlie New England cry for
tree wool is much more dangerous to
the party cf Reed and McKinley than
its quarrels with its president.'
"Every party quarrels with its presi
dent, particularly in the earlier part of
his term, when he is employed in dis
tributing pap among his hungry fol
lowers. Especially is this ti ue of the
republican party the party, as its
leaders boast, of the educated classes,
the gentlemen, the kind, that is to say,
who want a Sift berth, with good pay
and little work, and that indoors in
pleasant quarters. Such a party con
sists very largely of office seekers, and
it is certain to quarrel with a president
who has not enough to give away to
"What republican president has had
decent treatment from his party? Mr.
Lincoln, in spite of the vast patron
age which the war gave hiin, was
obliged to face an army 6f 'soreheads'
nearly as numerous as the army in the
field. General Grant needed all his
stout will to keep down the mutineers
in his party, and declared with disgust
that the presidency was made an in
tolerable burden, not by his opponents,
but by his party friends. Not to speak
of poor Hyes, General Garfield per
ished of the quarrels of his party, and
Mr. Arthur was the target of incessant
abuse and scurrility from his party.
It is said Mr. Harrison will" have no
influence with Wis party, because they
hate him. . That remains to be seen.
For the present we notice that the re
publican senators are confirming his
nominations without delay. But what
president in recent years has had in
fluence with congress? Certainly not
Mr. Arthui , whose veto message on
the exorbitant river and harbor bill
was openly and scurrilously "defied and
denounced by leading republicans on
the floor of the house, and whose most
useful recommendations were denied
even the decency of consideration by
his party in both, houses. Certainly
not Mr. Cleveland, who spenr three
years in vainly urging his party tc
sensible policies, and who in the first
two years of his reign was far more
bitterly and openly denounced by his
party leaders than Mr. Harrison or
even Mr. Arthur. In spite of this, by
the way, Mr. Cleveland is nfw said to
be the most popular man in his party.
From that fact Mr. Harrison's friends
may get hope and courage. ' . , V
What has Mr.. Harrison done that
his party should so vigorously dislike
him? Like Mr. Cleveland he has hon
estly and courageously stuck to the
party platform that is the main cause
of his party's woes. He has not al
lowed himselt to become the" slave of
ambitious senators and representatives
that is his great crime. He has had
the courage to be president-r-hence thej
great outcry against him of those who
elected him. He is better than his
party,' they say. The country is de
voutly grateful for that. ; A republican
president who was not better than his
party would be a very bad prize in
the. lottery for the people of the
The country at large is not badly sat
isfied with Pres. Harrison. The people,
; even the republican voters, have learn
ed to think rather well ef a president

whom - their politicians denounce.
They know that fact thai he is not the
slave of the gang, of senators, repre
sentatives, and bosses whose idea of a
president is a tool to do their dirty
work. As to the politicians who in
their private conclaves enrse Mr. Har
rison, their complaint is simply that he
has: courage to resist them, and that as
they cannot bully him they are forced
to do his will. But to these gentry
he may say,' 'Gentlemen,; growl you
may, but go you must.' "
In reference to the sad misfortune
which occurred in the home of Secre
tary of the Navy Tracy, on the 3rdr
in Washington, D. C, it has been
learned that the terrible death of Mrs.
Tracy, daughter, and maid, was caused
by the burning of their $80,000 man
sion at 7 a. m. on Tuesday. Mrs.
Tracy, after dragging her husband who
was in a suffocated state, from a back
bedroom in the second story to the
front window of the house, leaped to
the g'-ound in her fright, and died soon
after irom the injnries received. Her
daughter was seen in her bedroom win
dow in the third story in the attitude
of prayer and the fl.imes enveloped
her and she was burned to death be
fore the firemen could render assistance.-
- The blackened remains of the
maid were found in a room adjoining
that of .the daughter. Mr. Tracy was
taken from the building in an uncon
scious state, kut notwithstanding the
teniWle experience and the great shock
caused by the - loss of his wife and
daughter, is now recovering. There
were but few persons in close pro-
imity to the home at the time the
flames burst forth, and one man de
scribed it as being one seething mass
of flame iu only a minute of time "and
it seemed as though hell had broken
loose and sent its fiery tongue to the
earth."- The -cause of the fire is
thought to be incendiarism; as much
money was found in ; the- back yard
which was probably left by the fiends
in their escape from what proved to be
deadly work. One person thought it
was caused by the wood work in the
house around the steam heating ap
paratus and pipes becoming so thor
oughly dried that the ignition point
had been reached and the whole thing
subsequently went .off - like tinder.
The whole cUyot Washington was
grieved at the terrible calamity.
The' board of trade in Ccrvallis is
alive to the needs of the city, in some
things. It should discuss sewerage
and street grade also, if it expects to
develope the proper kind of a city.
The dollars that would be put in a
20-mile "branch" road, could be more
profitably spent inside the corporate
limits of the "heart of the vail ey." .
