SPEEDY ACTION NECESSARY.
Mr. Blumhart, who ia thoroughly conver
sant with the situation, was seen this week
by the Gazette man in regard to the best
policy to pursue. He believes that a com
mittee should be seut to Washington imme
diately for the purpose of urging upon our
representatives the necessity of speedy ac
tion. Unless this matter is brought to the
attention of the committee on rivers and
harbors in the very near future, the appro
priation bill will be passed, we will be too
late, and another year must elapse before
any government funds can be had for this

Graham's island, has become obstructed
with drift, forcing the main river through
vcuKuuiiu unite, aruuiiu to me ease oi we
island, at the northeast corner of which it
turns through Hogue's creek and runs in a
westerly f course into the old west channel.
Here it turns north and runs in that direc
tion to the lower end of Alexander island,
where it turns in a north-easterly course and
flows some distance to the bend in the river
where the current threatens to divide.
Here the channel again turns west, forming
nearly a complete semi-circle, the diameter
of which is about eighty rods, and would ex
tend through an old water way from the
soathern extremity of Alexander's island, to
a point not far south from Fischer's mill.
The bottom of this slough, or water way, is
only seven feet above low water mark. By
dredging this out, removing the obstructions
at the upper end and putting in a wing dam
at the mouth of East river, the volume of
water can be confined to this channel. At
any rate, this is the most feasible plan yet
suggested. Mr. Blumhart says the work
can be accomplished with an expenditure of
only $10,000, while others estimate that it
will require from $15,000 to $20,000.
The Gazette, through the aid of its col
umns, was largely instrumental in securing
the last appropriation for this improvement
and now that it has begun the agitation for
another appropriation, it proposes to leave
no stone unturned until successful
A New Enterprise.
The building on main street formerly oc
cupied as a barber and tailor shop has been
thoroughly overhauled, the two rooms
thrown into one and will be occupied as a
restaurant. Mrs. M. Armstrong, formerly
proprietress of the "Royal," a most success
ful cateress as well as congenial hostess, will
assume charge of the new parlors on the 19th
inst., where she will conduct a restaurant
first-class in all its appointments. Mrs.
Armstrong has proved in the past her ability
to please her patrons and in this venture
hopes to excel former efforts. The tables
will be supplied with the best the market
affords, served in an attractive style.
Everything ia new and anyone wishing a
good meal cannot fail to be pleased at this
cafe. Popular prices will be charged and re
dactions given to boarders by the week.

RFFUBLICAN CLUB MEETING.
The Beuton county republican club held
another enthusiastic meeting at the court
house last Saturday evening. Although the
weather was inclement and the populists
were being held spell bound by the elo
quence of a speaker imported from Linn
county, the meeting was well attended.
The resignation of E. Finley Kitson, as cor
responding secretary of the club, was ten
dered and accepted. In his letter to the
club Mr. Kitson expresses the belief that
Benton county will cast its vote in June for
the republican nominees if this club will
only continue with the same energy she has
evidenced since its organization, and ex
tend the good work to the outlying dis
tricts. A vote of thanka was tendered the
Colonel for his efficient services and a reso
lution introduced by Mr. Kriobel express
ing the sincere regret of the club at his
resignation and wishing him success in his
new field of labor, was passed and the sec
retary ordered to prepare a copy of same and
mail to Mr. Kitson at Roseburg. B. W.
Johnson was chosen to fill the vacancy.
After the regular order of business had been
completed Hon. G. A. Waggoner delivered
an eulogy on the democratic party, which
was wen received, ilia address appears in
full in another column. Three excellent
selections were rendered by the male quar
tette club, which added much to the en
thusiasm ot the occasion. The musical fea
ture of the program is each evening becom
ing more popular. Itjenlivens the meetings,
is entertainuig to all and acts as a tonic on
the sleepy ones.'
The regular monthly social of the Pres
byterian church was held Wednesday
evening at the home of Mr. J. A. Spang
ler. The ladies of the church have an es
tablished reputation for providing pleas
ing entertainment, and their efforts on
this occasion only went in verification of
their ability. Each gentleman entering
drew a card for which there was a corres
ponding card held by a lady who was to
be his partner for lunch. This had the
effect of causing the guests to move about
and meet everyone present with the re
sult that all felt acquainted and quite at
home. The success of the evening was
largely due to the hostess, Mrs. Spangler,
and her daughter, Miss Ora, who spared
no pains in behalf of the company's pleas
ure. Through the evening a musical pro
gram was in grogress and much enjoyed
by those present. It was as follows:
vttai soio, miss ivuiu opangier; piano
solo, Miss Leon Louis; piano and flute
duet, Miss Louise Webber and Mr. Fred
Yates; vocal solo, Mr. Alex Samuels; in
strumental, orchestra; recitation, The
Chieftian's daughter, Miss Amy Vaughn
The most ridiculous farce ever enacted in
oar city came off at the courthouse on Wed
nesday evening, pursuant to the call for
a young men's democratic club. "We must
rally our young bloods," said the grey
beards," for between the nether mill
stones of the populists and repub
licans we are being ground to death." So
Judge McFadden, standing for Roderick
Dhu, sent the tiery cross by the youthful
Malise, Jim Cauthorn, into all precincts
where democrats were heard of last election,
demanding that all young warriors come to
the master place at once. . What language
shall tell the sequel? Not a young man ap
peared. The hall was brilliantly lighted,
and, in order to make persons on the streets
believe they were organizing a club, a few
old veterans of the Confederacy stood about
the windows, and by moving about, tried to
make it appear that a crowd was within.
Thia maneuver was suggested by lr. Wil
kins, who had seen it put into successful op
eration against the Union forces ma'fcy years
ago but it was no go. There was not enough
present to man the windows - and so the
blinds were pulled down on the north side.

Persons Alleged to Entertain
Hopes for State and
If the number of aspirants for political
honors be taken as a criterion, both the re
publicans and democrats seem confident of
success. Although the state is generally
conceded to be republican and a nomination
on their state ticket is equivalent to an elec
tion, there is nothing to indicate that the
democratic nominating convention -will be
compelled to go begging for material with
which to fill up their ticket. Cautious dem
ocrats, however, see plainly that the repub
lican state ticket will have a walk over, and
they do not feel justified in making any
strife to secure a nomination, while some of
those unsophisticated in political affairs and
others who presume entirely too much on
their individual popularity are red hot for a
place, and if successful, will be ignorant
enough to suppose that they can be elected.
The outlook for the republican nominees
was never better. The party is becoming
well organized; its members are enthusias
tic and all are confident of success. Fu
sion of the democrats and populists is the
only thing we need to fear. There is little
danger of that, as the pops do not favor it,
feeling confident of success without putting
up any combinations. The democrats, how
ever, are eager for the consummation of
such a deal, as this is the only plan that
can be suggested by which they can even
hope for success.
The following list of state offices, and
the men who are said to be seeking nomina
tions for them, shows how low is the tide of

"Affliction of the Times,
The Times in a recent issue spoke of sev
eral members of the G. O. P. being attacked
with fainting fits at one of their love feasts
held at the courthouse. . A republican club
was organized the other night in Philomath
and we fear the Times might imagine a sim
ilar performance occurred at their meeting.
Mr. Williams informs ns that no fainting was
indulged in. The "Times editor appears to
be afflicted with "spells' of , . When
one of these are on his brain refuses to per
form its usual functions. His mind wan
ders from the subject at issue,' apparently to
some ladies' sewing bee, where fainting is
both allowable and fashionable. These
"spells'' usually come when attempting to
write up the doings of a republican cam
paign meeting, and hence he is excusable in
a measure for what he says, J When this is
thoroughly understood the public will sym
pathize with him on account of his affliction
and pay no attention to his babblings. Still
on matters other than political that paper
is thoroughly reliable.
THE LATEST DEVELOPMElS.
A Plausible Proposition Made By
There seems to be a good deal of do ubt
and questioning as to the meaning of 1-he
option paper which is being circulated
among the labor and material creditors
of the O. P. R. R. We notice also seveial
inaccuracies in the accounts of it which
have been appearing in the papers. We
have taken some pains to get what w e
believe to be accurate information abou t
this, and the result we now place at th e
disposal of our readers. The paper is ai a
option to purchase these debts and not a
purchase outright. This option expire s
one day after the coming sale of the rail .-
road, on the second of June next. If thi ?
option is accepted, in the event of th :
purchase of the railroad by the parties ii I
question, the price to be paid for the debt s
is 36 per cent in cash on the completion:
of the purchase of the road, and 64 per
cent in the new first mortgage interest
bearing bonds, to be issued by the pur
chasers. Such bonds are to be of the
same rank and quality aswhatever other
bonds are issued by the purchasers. They
are to be issued, to trustees, to be ap
proved by the judge, who are to realize
them as they think best, and distribute
the proceeds, without deduction, among
the signers of the option paper in pro
portion to the amount of their debts. It
appears, therefore, that there is no ques
tion of a permanent holding of these
bonds, as some persons appear to think;
but the realization may take place just as
soon as the the bonds come into the hands
of the trustees. Some such course was
necessary to carry out the intention of
the persons offering to take the option,
as the bonds will come we suppose in the
usual denominations of one thousand
dollars each, therefore some way of real
izing them and distributing the proceeds
was involved. Some persons also have
inquired what the term and amount per
mile of the bonds wonld be. These ques
tions cannot be answered now. The pur
chasers must determine when the sale has
been made, what their bond issue will be.
Whatever bonds they take themselves
they will give to the option sellers if they
accept the options. What is good enough
for the purchasers must be good enough
for the creditors, and the selling of these
bonds will have to be supported by these
purchasers for their own sakes, we should
think. Some questions have been raised
as to who will be the trustees for the
creditors. Of course they should have a
voice in the matter; they should have
trustees in whom they have explicit con
fidence. By the option paper this result
will be reached by the provision making
the approval of the judge necessary to
the appointment of the trustees. If the
creditors are not satisfied with the names
suggested their course is plain: to make
their objections known to Judge Fuller-
ton, who may be relied upon to follow
the wishes of the creditors in this respect,
A Deserved Appointment.
KObert Jonnson was the nappy recip-
ient of numerous telephonic congratula
tions Wednesday evening from Portland
friends, who informed him of his appoint
ment as I postmaster of Corvallis. Mr,
Johnson has received no other advice of
his appointment except through the
press dispatch in the Oregonian, and does
not know when he is to take charge,
This is a splendid Appointment, and will
give unqualified satisfaction to the citi
zens of our town. Newspaper men in the
state rejoice and are glad, for his selec
tion from among th'e worthy candidates,
is a genuine tribute to the press. He is
very popular among the fraternity, and
received active and potent endorsements
from .the OreeonLPress association, of
which organization he was a charter
member and one of the "hustlers." The
Gazette does not like the politics and
policy of Grover, but it must commend
his wisdom in some of the Oregon post
office appointments. The power of the
press should be recognized.
The second meeting of the McKinley
club was held Monday evening and

that he did not leave Albany with Mrs.
Kenyon. On leaving that city by the
Southern Pacific train, a girl was placed
in his care, to be delivered to her parents
at Woodburn. The child arrived there
in safety and under the doctor's care. A
Gazette reporter who has been in
San Francisco some time says
that he was seen frequently on
the streets and at the fair, always
alone, and nothing in his demeanor indi
cated that he was aware of the scandal
his departure had caused. Recent
advices state that he will be home
next week, and will , be able to prove
himself innocent, and much injured by
the scandal. i

disease that science has been able to cure in
all its stages and that is Catarrh. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucnous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, aud giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in its cura
tive powers, that they offer One Hundred
Dollars for any case that it fails to cure.

The Populists Meet.
At 11 o'clock last Saturday morning
when Chairman Whitaker called the pop
ulist convention to order, about forty per
sons were present. Of this number, but
sixteen were of populistic faith, the bal
ance being either democrats or republi
cans who attended merely out of curiosity.
Addresses were made by Messrs. Dodele,
Williamson, Skeels and Chenoweth, in
which no new ideas were advanced.
Most of their time and eloquence was de
voted to a senseless harangue against the
two old parties. Banks and bankers also
came in for their full share of blame for
the present financial condition of the
country. They seem to lose sight of the
fact that eastern capitalists have millions
of money lying idle in New York banks
on which they are receiving no income at
all. Several speakers advocated the idea
of two per cent government loans direct
to the farmers, also the free and unlimit
ed coinage of silver, and made the start
ling declaration that any commodity bear
ing upon its face the stamp of the United
States government, was good money and
would pass as such. After dinner the
convention was again convened at which
time delegates to the state convention,
and county officers were chosen and are
as follows: Delegates, James Bruce, C.
Vanderpool, J. Whitaker and C. Skeels;
county judge, F. A. Chenoweth; sheriff,
Willard L. Price; assessor, R. Loggan;
commissioner, D. Vanderpool. There
was little contests for the nominations
and the balance of the ticket will have to
be made up later, when they can- find
men who will accept them. In the even
ing Ramp, of Linn county, spoke of the
present political issues from a populistic
standpoint. He was a fair speaker, and
aside from the rank absurdities which
must necessarily burden every populistic
speech, it was as good as those usually
delivered by campaign orators.
There may be Method in His Madness.
The Gazftte Iihs' taken the stand all
along that the scandalous accounts re
garding Dr. Applewhite, which have been
foisted upon the public and given promi
nence to by the editor of the Corvallis Times,
were untrue. The publication ot such mat
ter is a heavy responsibility in fact, the
heaviest an editor can assume. What mo
tive has prompted it? The good name of a
respected and widely known professiqnal
man is blasted; the happiness of his family
wrecked; his usefulness as a public ser
vant administering an important trust is
directly attacked. This is done on the
strength of rumors and one-sided statements,
while the evidence on the other side is not
presented. Why? Can it be that envious
eyes are cast at the position Dr. Applewhite
holds? Such things are being said. Some
motive must have impelled the editor of the
Times to violate the rules of a clean and hon
est newspaper. What is it? The Gazette
may have something more to say in this
matter later oil that will be a revelation to
the Corvallis public.
CALL FOR REPUBLICAN COUNTY
A republican convention tor the county of

Is more to be dreaded than an open and
visible one. That subtle and lurking foe,
which under the generic name of malaria
manifests itself, when it clutches us in its
tenacious grasp, in the various forms of
chills and fever, billious remittent, dumb
ague or ague cake, can only be effectually
guarded against by fortifying the system
against its insidious attacks with Hostet"
ter's Stomach Bitters, a thorough anti
dote to the poison of miasma in the sys
tem, and a safeguard against it thoroughly
to be relied upon. In the event of a ma
larious attack, avoid poisoning your sys
tem with quinine, and use instead this
wholesome remedy, unobjectionable in
taste and far more efficacious than any drug.
Use the Bitters for dyspepsia, billiousness,
constipation, kidney complaints and rheu

confident that he will have the distin

The Saint Born 1522 Years ago.
How and Why the Day is
Tomorrow will be the 1522ud anniversary
of the birth of St. Patrick, the patron saint
of Ireland. According to the - most authen
tic authorities, he was born near the site of
Kilpatrick, at the mouth of the Clyde, in
Scotland, in the year 372, and died in 464.
At the age of sixteen, he was carried captive
to Ireland by a band of ''marauders, but
made his escape after six months, and
reached Scotland. Carried off a second time,
and again escaping, he resolved to become a
missionary to the (Irish, and was ordained
in Scotland, 'and after a' long preparation,
was consecrated bishop. Having previous
ly, according to some accounts, visited Gaul
aud perhaps Italy, he passed over to his
chosen field of labor about 432, and preached
the gospel w ith such extraordinary effect that
although not absolutely the first t introduce
Christianity into that country, he has al
ways received the credit of its general con
version. He baptised the kings of Dublin
and Munster, and before his death' had con
verted almost the wholensland to'the, faith.
It appears that he appointed several bishops
with whom he held councils to settle the
discipline of the church which he had plant
ed. The Roman Catholic church keeps this
festival on March 17th. A popular legend
ascribes to him the banishment of all venom
ous creatures from the island by means of
his crosier or staff, which is mentioned by
an early writer as being kept with great ven
eration at Dublin in 1360. t
This day is generally observed throughout
the world bysons of the Emerald isle with
appropriate festivities. In the cities all
Irish societies and other organizations found
ed by Irinhmen, parade the streets, carrying
banners aud accompanied by bands of music.
In some of the Eastern cities it is perhaps
more generally observed than the 4th of
J uly. Wearing o' the Green is one of the
principal features of the occasion. The day
will be fittingly'commemorated in Corvallis
