The Sunday Excursion.
The Marine band excursion to
Salem and return last Sunday on
the steamer El wood was a most
enjoyable attair. ;o pains nail . Mrs. G. Vv. b.iaw, at tne resi
been spared 'by the boys to make deuce of the former lady last
it the excursion of the season j Tuesday evening. The iuvi--and
they are ck-servinar of con-; tatiou cards wore unique in their
gratulations for the success at -
"tained. Excellent music was
furnished by the band to the
heart's content of every one on
board. Arrangements had oeen
:inade to give the excursionists
four hours in the capitol city and
each one took advantage of the
V time allotted by calling on their
friends or in visiting points of in
terest about town. The officers
of the Elwood are pleasant gen
tlemen and added much to the
pleasure of the trip by their cour
teous, , accommodating manner.
Especial credit is due Al Marvin,

opportunity of enhancing the
comfort of his passengers. Over
200 persons took advantage of the
opportunity 01 ma;aug this de
lightful river trip. The "boys
netted about $75 out of the ven
ture, which paid them well for
their time and trouble.

of this letter and note the wonderful
change that has been effected in hiacase
by taking Dr. Grant's Kidney and Liver
Curefyou would certainty lie astonished.
I was a most wretched sufferer for three
years, trying all kinds of medicine and
getting no relief. The flow of urine was
very excessive. I was very constipated
and also covered with carbuncles, and
felt at war with myself and the world at
large; but, thanks to your wonderful
medicine, I felt as though I was a new
being, and I consider a wonderful cure
has been effected in my case.
With my best wishes for your further
success, I remain " ;

Wilson's term. These city elections fdioaid
be of as much interest to the re.-idents of Cor
vallis as the ttnte or national ea"nip:iifru.
We want men to liil thcte places of trust,
that will (five the matters of the .city their
time and attention; thnt will mr.na-'e. the
affairs of the government economically and
well. The litness of e ach perVon in the .coin-
rnuuity to fill thet-e important places should
be considered carefully and then place on
the ticket the very beat material obtainable,
and not wait until tho lust minute and then
use the name of the first person that may be
suggested. A good selection may be made
in this haphazard style of doing thing, but
the chances taken are so great that it is not a
good precedent to follow. Those councilman
to be retired at this time are: J. O. Wilson,
1st Ward; B. R. Job, 2nd Ward, and L. G.
Altaian, 3rd Ward.
So far the Gazette has heard of no selection
in the uppor ward. In the second, the name
of Robert Erwin has been spoken of, and in
the lower ward the names of W. T. Peet
and L. G. Altman are heard. It is prob.able
that no objections can be argued against any
of these gentlemen, still it would seem' more
business like if a ticket was nominated.
Then the voters would all know for certain
who the real candidates are. Would it not
be policy to call a caucus of citizens tomor
row evening for tho purpose of nominating a
A Joint Canvass.
The several candidates of the republi
can, populist and democratic tickets have
concluded to make a joint canvass of the
county and have fixed the dates as follows:
Summit, May ai; Blodgetts, May 22;

Hon. Roswell G. Horr's Enthu
siastic Address to the
Voters of the County.
Hon. Roswell G. Ilorr spoke Wednes
lay afternoon to as many people as could
jet into the opera house. Among the'
audience was a good sprinkling of demo
crats and populists besides many ladies.
On the stage were a number of promi
nent local republicans. After a couple
of choice selections by the Marine band
Mr. Ilorr was introduced by Mr. Wag
goner, chairman of the republican com
mittee, and the speaker's reception was a
most enthusiastic one. During the hour
and a half he spoke his listeners were
deeply interested, and frequently they
were convulsed with laughter by his
amusing anecdotes and quaint similes.
THICK AND NOW.
"During the year 1S92," began the
speaker, "I traveled through twenty-one
states, and I do not recollect having vis
ited 011 the entire tour a single city or
town where the factories were not run
ning on full time and full-handed and
where the people were not receiving
good wags and living well. Within the
last 14 months I have been through 15
of those 21 states, and in each city I
found the factories either closed down or
running on half time, with the oper
atives receiving lower wages and in cor
responding lower spirits. Thoughtful
men were asking, and still are asking
'What does all this mean?' As I tell you
what it means, I will also state that I am
one of the fellows who told you so.
Early and late I toTd you that if you
took the business management of this
country out of the hands of the business
party and put it in charge of a party
without business experience, trouble
would come. It has come. But -while I
knew it would corae, I did not think it
would come so soon. Now let us see
how and why it came. Philanthropy
should be;gin at home. A man's first
duty is to his family, then to his city,
then to his nation, then to the world.
The American people have no show with
the men- who are framing the Wilson
bill. When they see the head of a new
industry appear above water they hit, in
stead of helping it to rise. You want to
work for people who can pay you. It is
the employer's ability to pay that makes
a prosperous country. Free trade does
not aim to help him, and through him it
stabs the wage earner.
AS TO OREGON.
"In Oregon I find a new party that
proposes to r'store prosperity to the
nation by r aiming a paper mill, to make
money plentiful by simply turning a
wheel. This party wants the govern
ment to loan money to the masses at two
per cent, but leaves us at a loss to ascer
tain where the government is to get the
money. And what about security? The
people who are worst off are the people
who have nothing to offer as security.
And why charge two per cent, interest
ou the loan, or any security at all? Why
not tell the borrowers that they need
not worry about cither principal or in
terest? That would give all of us money
and remove necessity for work. This
populist idea is in direct contrariness to
the universal idea of being. To live,
people must labor. It is not our duty to
make people discontented with their lot.
It is bad public teaching to advocate idle
ness." The speaker then went into the his
tory of money, showing that gold and
silver came to be universally adopted for
coinage because they represented value.
"The only go'id paper money," he con
tinued, "is ?. bill of promise to pay 171
something else of material worth. Our
greenbacks were good only so long as
you could have cash iu exchange for
them. I get so tired of this talk of the
government furnishing the people with
all the money they need. The govern
ment cannot keep the people supplied
with money unless the people provide
the government with it. Uncle Sam can
not make money out of nothing any
more than he cau build roads through
the states without laying himself liable
to arrest for trespass. The people must
furnish themselves with what they need
and can do so if the tariff-tinkers will
give them a chance.
Bombshell after bombshell was hurled
into the populist ranks when Phelix Do
dele arose and attempted to call the
speaker down. But Mr. Ilorr was ready
for him and gave to the would-be legisla
tor several good thoughts to carry home
and ponder over. Mr. Dodele seemed
very much concerned about the depreci
ated currency that was paid to the sol-
diers during the war and when asked if
he had been enlisted in the cause of his
country's defense he faintly replied that
he had not, when the speaker remarked
that he was giving himself a great deal
of uneasiness about a matter that in no
way effected him. This brought the
house down. . Cheers were given to the
speaker, while hisses and loud cries of
"sit down" were accorded the Soap
creek populist as he took his seat in a
muchly disgruntled frame of mind.

which is now in session opened its first
meeting Wednesday 'evening at th
court house with a good attendance.
The program began by music by tha
Marine band. Superintendent Bryant
then made his announcements for the
session. Prof. S. I. Pratt, of the Corval
lis public schools, followed with an ad
dress of welcome- In the course of his
remarks he stated that the people of
C01 va! i ; had been called on to entertain
numerous conventions, but that there
was no assemblage which they accorded
a more hearty welcome to, than a party
of teachers. He also stated that next to
the parent the teacher occupies the
warmest spjot in a pupil's heart Each
teacher was assured of a hearty welcome
and in closing Mr. Pratt made use of the
following appropriate quotation from
Longfellow regarding the hospitality of
Corvallis residents, "Whose houses , were
open as day and the hearts of the own
ers." These remarks were very elo
quently responded to by W. T. Lee, of
the Bellefountain school, who referred
to Corvallis as a fosterer of educational
A well-rendered vocal duet by Victor
and Josie Moses was then given, which
met with hearty applause.
State Superintendent E. B. McElroy
was introduced and delivered an interest
ing lecture on the topic, "The Public
School and the State." "Our free state
institutions," he said, "are the outgrowth
of our public schools. Man being of dl-"
vine origin, and the state being an insti-
tution created by man, it must be of dl.
vine origin. It was not an accident that
the first colonist3 made provisions for
popular education. They foresaw that

eral discussion was entered into in wh'ch

giene." When she had done, a few
minutes was spent by W. E. Yates, S. Lv

Struck With a Gun.
Yesterday morning Deputy Sheriff
Smith left for Blodgetts precinct armed
with a warrant for the arrest of Wm.
Keehn charged with assault with a dan
gerous weapon. It seems that for some
time some ill feeling had existed between
the defendant and one of his neighbors
named John Preiderichs, which culmi
nate 1 the other day when Freiderichs
was attempting to drive from his field a
cow owned by Keehn. The latter was
lying in waiting for his victim 1 behind a
log and when Freiderichs came along
Keehn arose front his place of conceal
ment with a shotgun and said, "What's
iu this is for you." He then made an at
tack on Freiderichs, who had his hands
in his pockets, and struck him with the .
gun, which resulted in breaking one off
the bones in Freiderichs' left forearm..
Freiderichs is an elderly German gentle
man and appears to be a peaceable, law
abiding citizen. He came into Corvallis
yesterday and swore to a complaint in
Justice Wilson's court and a warrant wa
at once issued for the arrest of the of
fender. Tuesday at Gravesend, in the presence
of 40,000 people, Dr. Rice won the Brook
lyn handicap in 2:07X1 making $18,500 In '
prizes alone forjiis lucky owners, who
are Foster Brothers, formerly of this
place and also the owners of Oregon
Eclipse. This is a wonderful victory
when it was considered that Dr. Rice had.
been given up as a winner when pur
chased by the Fosters.
