Aieund at Cecil's last Thursday nitdit
there was a good sized crowd assembled to

overcoat, and at the time the drawing took
place sixty gentlemen had availed them
selves of the offer. James Eglin was the
fortunate man, and this winter will be one
of the few Corvallisites who can afford to

Uncle Jimmie Cbitwood, of Chitwood,
Liuceln county, paid the Gazette office a
pleasant call last Friday afternoon. He was
eurnute to the home of his son James, who
lives near Albany, on a visit. He says the
people of his county are thoroughly disgust
ed with the attempt of certain designing
politicians to "do up" Representative Her
mann, but thinks it will not have the effect
of defeating him. Uncle Jimmie has been a
republican since "befo de wall" and fully
understands the sentiments of the citizen
of his county, and when he says Hermann
is the strongest man, it means something.

There is such a thing possible Ilia! the
Oregon Central It Eastern will build a bi- i ck
to Eugene that will uot touch CorvaKis.
The Eugene people are offering heavy iu
duceinents for the road to enter that city,
and it will probably bo 'milt soon. The
natnral, shortest and most feasible route is
from Philomath. It is understood that the
Philomath people are promising large land
donations if a branch will be built from
that point. The branch road itself might
not be of particular advantage to CorvaHis,
but a branch road starting from a point only
seven miles distant would very probably in
jure the business of this city. . If CorvaHis
desires the road to start from here, our citi
zens will have to begin moving, or her little
neighbor will get away with the plum.
Miss Helen Holgate, who has been in
Portland the past month visiting relatives
and forming the acquaintance of her two to

It is indeed fortunate that Miss Helen re
turned, for members of the Bachelor Quar

guidiug band has not been here to control
them. But their cup of joy, that was filled
to overfl wii g ea -iccuunt of her return,
was seon turned to bitterest disappointment,
because she is to remain iu CorvaHis and act
as chaperon and accompanist for the boys
enly a month. The first of October, Miss

Dr. A. Rogers, at one time pastor of the
Congregational church of this city, but for
the past few years in charge of the Congre
gational church at Forest Grove, was in
town Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
Mr. Rogers is interested in a large prune
orchard east of CorvaHis, and was here to
arrange for the shipping of a couple of car
loads of Itallian prunes. Mr. Rogers is con
nected with some' Portland growers, who
are large shippers of green fruits, and who
intend shipping a train of Itallian prunes to
ths eastern markets within the next few
days. Prunes already shipped by these
parties netted the growers 2$ cents per
pound. These were gotten onto the market
early and brought a better price than can be
obtained now, but Mr. Rogers is of the
opinion that later shipments will net the
growers fully two cents per pound.
The old saying that "there is many a slip,
'twixt the cup and the lip," has been once
more verified. Last Saturday Joe Beaulin,
of Pioneer, better known as. "Dutch Joe"
came down to Toledo and procured a license
to wed the Widow Mosier, of Pioneer. Sun
day was the day set for the wedding and
Joe had to hasten horns, and did not get to
Pioneer until about midnight. Imagin his
surprise and consternation whea he repaired
to the. home of bis promised bride, to be
coolly informed by her that she had changed
her mind and wouldn't marry him. Aud
she didn't, either, but left the next morniug
with her family for Linn county. Dutch
Joe is unconsolable. The worst part about
it to him seem to be the money wasted for
a license. He has tried to sell it at a dis-
count to the unmarried boys at the quarry,
jbut all say they don't want a second-hand
license. Lincoln Leader.
A. E. Cameron, who defeated James Al
len in a foot race at Lebanon, August 17th,
informs the Gazette that so far as he is
concerned, the race was on the square.
The sports of Lebanon seemed extremely
anxious to make ths match, but now, since
their favorite is defeated, they yell "job."
Cameron is a quiet, unassuming sort of a
fellow, but is not disposed to allow a let of
would-be sports to run over him. He says,
just to show the sporting fraternity of Leb
anon that he is all right, he will give
Alien 20 feet in a hundred yards and run
the race within a week from the time the
articles are signed, for from $100 to $500 a
side. The money at this end of the line is
ready to be put up whenever the Lebanon
bloods are ready to cover it. Mr. Cameron
says the row spoken of in the Albany pa
pers, as occurring immediately after the
race, was a matter in which he was in no
way connected and for which he should not
be held accountable, as he left Lebanon
shortly after the race, and was not in town
when the row occurred.
An important meeting of the Central Wil
lamette Fruit Union was held at the court
house last Saturday afternoon. The attend
ance was somewhat larger than usual, there
being present fully twenty-five actual grow
ers. - Ih the absence of Chairman Wood
ward, Prof. E. R.. Lake presided. He
stated that in addition to the regular order
of business, one of the principal objects ef
the meeting was the appointment of a dele
gate to represent this section at the meet
ing of representative fruit growers which
convened in Portland yesterday. This
meeting Is an important one and was called
to decide upon some plan of packing and
marketing this season's crop of prunes. A
resolution was unanamonsly passed to adopt
an association brand ; and have the fruit
packed and graded uniformly. Prof. Lake
was chosen to represent the local growers at
the Portland meeting, and he left Monday
for that city. Uionv his return a special
meeting of the union will be called for the
purpose of arranging the details for mar
keting fruit in accordance with the tenor of
the resolution adopted last Saturday.

HOW TO SECURE A BETTER WATER
- ' :r- SYSTEM. -
Last week the public sehool building of
Medford was burned to the ground, because
of an inadequate water supply. The build
iug was recently erected, and eost, together
with its furniture and equipment, in the
neighborhood of $15,000.
CorvaHis has a school house of which she
miy justly feel prond. It has cost the tax-
1 payer of the distriet about as much as the
school building at Medford, and like that
building, it has no protection in case of fire;
fiere are no fire hydrants iu the immediate
For the past three or four years the peo
ple have heard waterworks talk until tuiy
are tired. Every few months the matter is
revived in the council. Each time the sub
ject is brought up, the taxpayers have hoped
that something would be accomplished to
ward securing au increased water supply.
At the council's last meeting the fire and
water eommittee made a report to th effuct
that ths city should be proided with thirty
hew hydrants, but the matter, after consid
erable discussion, only ended, as all previous
efforts, in nothing but smoke.
This question is of too much importance
to be treated in any but a serious manner. It
would seem that for the best interests of the
city a special committee should be appoiuted
at the next meeting of the council to inves
tigate the water system of other town?.
After so doing, the committee would be in a
position to report intelligently npon the
needs of CorvaHis, as regards water supply.
With the data afforded from neighboring
towns it would be an easy matter to draught
out the plans for an entirely new system and
estimate the cost of its constructiou; also
from the data at hand could be made au ap
proximate estimate of price the city could
afford to pay for the service.
When this is done in a systematic way
the city will know what it wants, and what
it can afford to pay. Then a proposition
should be made the water company to ex
tend its plant in accordance with the plans
submitted by the committee with the under
standing that the present coutract is to be
canceled and a new franchise granted the
company for a term of, say twenty-five or
thirty year3. With such a valuable fran
chise the water company would doubtless be
willing to grant the city numerous conces
sions, and withiu five years CorvaHis might,
if the matter is properly mauaged, have one
of the best and most complete water systems
of any town in the state.
It is useless to expect any improvement
to the system under the present contract.
Under it the company can be forced to do
nothing in the way of extending the mains,
and of course it ea be expected to do but
little of its own volition under the present
arrangement and with no prospect that a
new contract will be negotiated when the
present one expires in 1900.
It 13 no longer possible to bond the city
for the putting iu of a water system. Pub
lic sentiment has changed materially, re
garding the city's ownership of the plant,
and our citizens almost unanimously favor
some plan that will increase our water facil
ties without increasing the rato of taxation,
or advancing the cost of service.
Some such plan as outlined above seems
to be the only practicable one. If the coun
cil will take the matter up in a businesslike
way and push it as its importance deserves,
the deal could easily be closed by the first of
the year. All that is necessary to accom
plish this result is to talk less and work
Mention was made iu these columns two
weeks ago of the arrest, at Yreka, Califor
nia, of Garland Stemler, on a charge of mur
der, committed while burglarizing a store at
Bailey Hill, California, in company with a
Mexican, named Louis Moreno. Pending
their examination which was to have oc
curred last Monday, the pair were placed in
jail at Yreka, but on Sunday night, with
two other murderers, Stemler ad Moreno
were taken from the j ail by a mob of 250
determined men, and hung between two
trees in the court house yard. A press dis
patch of the affair states that the condemned
men were stolid and took their fate without
a muriner, with the exception of young
Stemltr, who begged piteouly for merey.
His age is 19. It is said that the scene was
a heartrending one, as young Stemler broke
forth in an agonized appeal, and cried out:
"Tell my dear old -mother I am innocent of
the crime." The rope bro'ie with Stemler,

A STARTTIKO ACCIDENT.
A team of horses belonging to R. C. Ki
ger exhibited their running qualities on Sec
ond street Tuesday morning, indulging in
rather a startling runaway. They were at
tached to a wood wagon, and were being
driven by a boy named Clyde Huffman.
One of the horses caught the line under kis
tail, when opposite Gardner's photograph
gallery, which started the team. They ran
across to Caakey's blacksmith shop, striking
the sidewalk and throwing young Huffman
about twenty feet in the air. The wagon ran
over him when he fell, but he was not bad
ly injured. The team continued down the
street and struck a tree in front of Hemp
hill's harness factory, breaking the axle, but
the horses ran on until they encountered Mr.
Simon Kline's horse and phaeton, standing
in front of his store. His little boy was in the
rig, but he jumped out to avoid the collision.
The horse and rig were turned completely
over by the run away team, but with no
more serious injury than a broken spring
and shaft. One of the runaway horses fell
down in front of Rose's cigar store, and the
team stopped. One of the horses was very
hadly injured. The street was filled with
teams and the affair could very easily have
been a more se.ioua one.

DEATH OF GEO. W. HOTTCK.
George W. Honck, a pioneer of 1856, died
last Thursday afternoon at his home four
miles west of Monroe, in this county. His
death was the result f kidney trouble,
caused by falling from a horse last spring,
since which time his health gradually failed.
- He was born, January 22,' 1830, in Mana
yinik, Pa., and 'spent his boyhoad days in
Seneca, O. His parents were natives of
Germany, and came to America in 1828.
He was fifth of a family of seven children,
and when a youth learned the shoeinakei V
trade. In 1852 he came to California via
Panama, and remained there until 1S56.
Duriug this time be was engaged in mining,
and did fjirly Well. When first in Oregon,
he spent some tithe iu the mines, but later
engaged in the mercantile business, both in
CorvaHis and Monroe, and so continued un
til 1SS4, when he was burued out. In 18S4
lie was elected county commissioner, serv
ing one terra. He was in office at the time
of the building of the present county court
house, and his progressive spirit had much
to do in securing the building of that edi
Mr. Houck was married July 22, 185S, to
Deliah Young, who hail crossed the iplains
in 1847, and who survives him.- Six chil
dren have been born to them, only' three
of whom are living: Jesse J., George A.
and Linn A. A large tract of land lying in
Benton and Lane counties is eyidence of the
busiuess ability of the man who came West
penniless. With his son George he has for
several years been engaged in stockraising
and woolgrowing, and was regarded as one
of Benton county's well-to-do farmers. In
politics he was a democrat, and in religion a
firm believer iu the Catholic faith.
His funeral occurred Saturday morning at
the Catholic church, aud wns largely at
tended, many old pioneers and prominent
citizens being present.
A PIONEER OF 1S47.
Friday evening, about ten o'clock, Mrs.
Mary Ann Kendall, a pioneer of 1847, died
suddenly at her home in this city, from the
effects of a paralytic stroke. As soon as the
attack caine on she realized its seriousness
and sent a messenger immediately for a phy
sician, remarking at ths time, that sue
would be dead before his arrival. Her last
words proved only too true. Upon the ar
rival of Dr. Farra, only a few minutes later,
her spirit had flown and medical aid was of
110 avail. Mary Anu Taylor was born in
Virginia, March 17, 1S22. Iu early life her
parents moved to Missouri, where, in 1838,
she was married to John Maupiu. Ia 1847
the - family cros.ed the plains, being six
months enroute. At or near where Pendle
ton now stands, Mr. Maupiu died, leaving
his wife with rive children. With that for
titude and determination so characteristic of
the early settlers of our state, the widowed
mother pressed on to her destination, and
settled in the Woldo hills. Two years later
she was married to Chas. Matt. One child,
a daughter, was the only issue of this mar
riage, and not long after its birth, Mr. Matt
died in California, In 1S53, Mrs. Matt was
married the third time. With her husband,
Col. Jehial Kendall, she settled on the old
homestead a few miles north of Cor
vallis, where she residedlintil quite recently
when she moved into CorvaHis for the pur
pose of. schooling her grand-daughter. In
1SSS, her husband died suddenly aud left
quite a large estate, which Mrs. Kendall
had since managed successfully. Her death
is supposed to have been the result of a ser
ious illness that occurred two year3 ago.
The surviving children are Mrs. Wright
and Mrs. George Einerick, CorvaHis; Mrs.
Souther, Portland; and Frank Maupiu, Port
Angel, Wash. Mrs. Kendall's funeral oc
curred at the M. E. church, South, Monday
afternoon, Rev. P. A. Moses officiating.
The interment was made in Crystal Lake
DOCUMENTS BURIED DURING WAR
In making his rounds the other day in
search of news, a Gazette representative
called on Kv. P. A. Moaes. The reverend
gentleman was found iu his study busily en
gaged in ths preparation of data for his re -
pore to tns general conference which con
venes today in Oakland. He, however, was
not too busy to talk awhile, and gave the
reporter an interesting bit of information
regarding his life. Kev. Moses is a native
of Virginia, where he was educated. Iu
those days an education cost something.
tuition was not free as it is now in most
state institutions, and a boy, to get through
college then, had to make the best of
bis opportunities and manage his finances
with far greater econemy than at the pres
ent. Iu 1855. Mr. Moses graduated at the
Randolph-Macon college, taking the degree
f A. M. On completing his coursi at col
lege he began the study of law. While thus
engaged he was elected to the state senate
and served one term. Later bis plaiis were
changed, and he entered the ministry and
became the president of ons of the leading
Methodist colleges of the south. When
the war broke out, Mr. Moses was commis
sioned chaplain of an Arkansas infantry reg
iment and remained with it until after Lee's
surrender. Fearing that the federal troops
would destroy his personal effects while be
was away at the front, Mr. Moses buried
them near his home. Among the articles so
cached, were his diplomas, kis commission
and numerous letters of recommendation,
which Mr. Moses still has in his possession.
These documents, kept in a strong box in
one corner of the study, were brought out
aud shown to the Gazette man. ' The di

with aye ami unisty from their long expos
ure to dampness' while concealed under

tion, and aro prized very hisjh'y by their
owner. Mr. Moses has been pastor of the
M. K church (nuth) of this city duriug the
past two years, and during that time has
made many warm friends. Accessions to the

A BTyOOMETt GIB.I, SPEAKS.
To thoso who have had the pluck to don
the suit, I say: Girls, stick to your bloom
ers. Let the cranks iu human form, griud
and squeak as they will, all they need is an
application of petroleum to remove the" rust
ftom their back number ideas. Let hood
lums laugh and jser; hey know no better.
Let scoffers scoff, since they must fling their
caustic, ill-natured remarks at some one.
Let gossips gossip. Whom do their vile
tongues most injure? They or ur? Let
chatterers chatter; they say much, but mean
Thank heaven, there are some men pos
sessed of enough common sense in bo' able
and willing to recogniz4 a lady at all times
and in all places. And, pray, is she not as
true a lady, when dressed in a bloomer suit
and mounted upon a wheel, as when, attired
in evening dress, she is found fipou the' pi
ano stool in the parlor ? If she is a lady in
skirts, why is she not the sams in bloomers?
Would you, who so severely criticise the
girl in bloomers, dare to enter a fashiouabla
salon in one of our cities and boldly declare
that the society belles in glittering silks and
satins, with necks, shoulders and arms bared
to the gaza of all beholders, were" lacking in
modesty or womanliness ? Would you have
the pluck to visit a seaside resort, and loud
ly assert that all ladied Who' appeared upon
the strand in regulation bathing suits, were
not ladies iu the fullest sense of the word ?
Me thiuks.wero you. to do' either one or
the other, that some justly angry and indig
nant father, brother, husband or lover would
thresh you within an inch of your life. And
richly would you deserve it tool Yet, your
statement iu either of those cases, would be
equally as just as are your remarks to that
effect, concerning the girl in bloorrftrf.
Of the men who say we Woornsr girls are
not ladies, let me ask: Are we not as truly
ladylike, mounttd upon our wheels, in our
b"bomer suits, as you are truly gentlemvily
when yon stand in front of a saloon, squirt
ing tobacco spit onto the pavemsnt, and
making ill-natured remarks about girls
whom you, iu many cases, know nothing
about ? Before you criticise the bloomer
girl, look in the glass and see if there' is not
a bloomer on the end of your own nose ! It
is a fact to be deplored, that in our "land of
the free," woman mu3t live in slavery,
bound to obey and follow a given set of laws,
iu order to escape the fi-ary' waves of gossip
which are turned upon her at the slightest
Girls, stand up for your rights; stick to
your bloomers, and by jour conduct' show
to the world that the bloourr'r girls are la
dies, iu every sense of the word.

Monday a coterie of prominent rait'
road men visited Corvalli. The part
included A. L. Bower, the sutcessful bid

H. B. Claflin & Co., who is interested
with Messrs. Bonner & Hammond in the'
road, and W. H. Brimsori, superintendent
of the Montana division of the N. P.,
who is an old friend of Mr. Hammond.
The party arrived! by special car front
the front, Monday afternoon, and spent
the evening until ten o'clock in CorvaHis
when they left for Yaquina, returning"
the next day.
Mr. Hammond considers it rather late
to begin work on branch lines5 this fall,
although he indicated that there was si
strong probability of extending the road;
to Independence prairie before winter.
A a result of their visit,- Manager
Stone was given instructions to have the
river boats fitted up for immediate use.
The Bentley and Three Sisters require
new hulls and some repairs are neces-'
sary to be made to the Hoag before she
will be ready for service. These imv
provementswill cost between 8,oco and
$ io,6bo and if given' some local encourv
agement, the work will pYobably be
done here by H. B. Williamson. He isr
an experienced mechanic and can do
the work here as cheaply and as satisfac
torily as it can be done in Portland. IS

be necessary for him to give a $2ocxx
