CORVALLIS,-OREGON, Mar. 5, 1897.
With but little ostentation, yes
terday the administration of a
mighty government was changed.
William McKinley assumed the
presidency of the United States,
having been chosen by the peo
ple after one of the greatest poli
tical battles the world has ever
It is not expected that Mr. Mc
Kinley, as president, will be able
to enrich the people. The gov
ernment does not support the citi
zen! But it is expected, with
reason, that McKinley's adminis
tration will be wise and good;
that it wilV inspire confidence in
our future, and that the doubts
and fears which have driven cap
ital into hiding will de dispelled.
It is believed that with the in
fusing of hoarded wealth into the
arteries of trade, there will be a
general revival of business and
prosperity will attend us.
The Valley Record (pop) of
Ashland, has this editorial men
tion on a familiar topic: "Will

will get through with the Jackson
county populist aggregation tag

they get through jerking chest

faction of the different republican
factions, the people that sent
them there have several matters
of importance to the citizens and
taxaayers of Jackson county that
need looking after. We don't

The Oregonian takes occasion
to "burn up" the Corvalhs Ga

the great heat will be reflected
about June, 1898, and Johnson,
of the Gazette, will be permit
ted to see the browning and siz
zling of the Oregonian and
the Simon-Bourne-populist outfit
The Gazette has -the people
with it, which the Oregonian
will realize more clearly a little
later on. Hillsboro Independ
ent. Editor Gault is a consistent
level-headed republican. The
citizens of Washington county
are done with Simonism and re
pudiate the Oregonian. Every
real republican paper in Oregon
refuses to recognize the Oregoni
an as, a republican journal.
ganization was really possible, no I
matter who had control, but that
the pretended efforts on the part
of populists this week to organize
was a thin bluff. They had forty
five days in which to help organ
ize the house, but they obsolutely
refused. Nothing has occurred
since to give them any more
reason for doing their duty They
are posing now for effect merely.
Mr. Lake thought that the gover
nor would call an extra session
within a month or so.
Mr. Lake refused to enter the
joint assembly chiefly because he
knew that 46 members could not
be induced to come in and he did
not propose to 'go rainbow hunt
ing." While he was elected with
the understanding that he would
ote for Senator Mitchell, that was
not his chief duty and he was
more interested in possible legisla
tion. He would vote for Mr.
Mitchell whenever opportunity
arose, although the senator was
hardly his personal choice.
Mr. Lake was perfectly inde
pendent, while at Salem, and for a
while was lampooned from all
sides. But he maintained his own
policy and tho?e that had abused
him finally acknowledged his good
sense and honesty.
He stated that more than the
defeat of Mitchell was behind the
holdup and that the revolutionary
tactics of Mitchell's opponents
could not be justified.

W. G. Steel, brother of Geo.
A. Steel, national republican

nishes the Chicago Inter Ocean
some curious misrepresentations
concerning the management of
the McKinley campaign in this
state. There is so siuch of un
truth in his article that even the
Oregonian failed to comment up
on it approvingly. His criticism
of the splendid work of the cen
tral committee is sometimes
astonishing. For instance he
elaborated a theory as to why
speakers were not sent into Coos
county, where the fact is that the
committee did send . speakers
there among whom were S. M.
Yoran, Til man Ford and Con
Congressman Tongue.
Everybody knows that the
pretended desperate attempt to
organize the ' 'Davis house' ' after
the tired and disgusted members
who really tried to organize, had
gone home, was a farce. There
could be no legal organization af
ter adjournment, unless the gov
ernor called a special session..
.Besides, Davis was not speaker of
the "Davis house." Hehadbeea
deposed and Dr. Smith, of Ma
irion county, elected in his stead.
Every populist paper in the
.state, from the Albany Imprint
to the Portland Oregonian, is
now explaining that "it is a good
thing after
all, that the
ture did not organize." Then
why not perpetuate the present
condition and elect a Czar? The
Gazette nominates Bourne. .
The Legislature.
The ante-Mitchell combine is at
outs. The straight populist ele
ment say that Simon didn't play
fair in allowing the senate to ad:
joum. So the Davis house con
tinues alone. The Oregonian
states that it may adjourn today
but that paper is rather poor
, authority. Davis eannot allow
his house to adjourn without pro
claiming his former rulings to be
wrong and unfair.
John Whiteaker went to Salem
Tuesday in response to a telegram.
" He did not have time to answer
many questions but stated that if
organization was finally accom
plished,' there would be but little
done except passiirg the approyria

To the Taxpayers and Citizens
of School District No. 9, ot Ben
ton County, Oregon:
Your board of directors would
respectfully submit to you the fol
lowing general report for the year
ending March 1st, 1897:
That the board entered into
written contracts with eight teaeh
ers one principal and seven sub
ordinates for a period of nine
school months, beginning Septem
ber 14th, 1896, the principal to re
ceive for his services the sum of
$75 per month, and each of the
subordinate teachers to receive the
sum of $40 per month: and that
all of those teachers entered upon
their duties and are still perform
ing the same;
That the interest on the $IG,000
bonds of the district, held by the
German Loan and Saving Society,
for the year has been paid; that in
the last installment of the interest
there was a deficiency of $160. ami
to meet this the clerk was author
ized to borrow that amount from
F. Berchtold, executing the note
of the district therefore, with in
terest at the rate of ten per cent
per aunum;
That the note of the district lor
$1,200, held by F. Berchtold, was
paid in full in June, 1896.
During the past year a few nec
essary repairs were made to the
school building, and the same was
repainted on the outside, includ
ing the roof, with two coats of lead
and oil, at a cost of about $350.
The yard 011 the east front ot
the building was greatly improved
by the spreading of 2S loads of
sand on the same.
Hie principal- having recom
mended, establishing the. .ninth
grade in the school, which after
due consideration by the board
was adopted, Miss Mildred Lin
ville was elected to the sixth grade
and entered upon her duties on
the 26th of October, 1896, and is
still performing the same. Miss
Augusta Turney and Prof. S. I.
Pratt were then transferred from
the sixth and eighth grades to the
eighth and ninth grades respect
ively. "In crder to make room for
the ninth grade, a partition seven
feet high was i nn through the room
of the eighth grade, making two
rooms in which the two grades are
That there are no outstanding
warrants or notes against the dis

funds in the hands of the- clerk to

becomes due;
' That the board has contracted
for 20 cords of oak grub wood and
60 cords of old-growth fir wood, to
be delivered at the school house
on or before Ausiust 1st of the
current year;
That, in the matter of school
apparatus, the board has purchased

The people of Oregon, and es
pecially residents of the Willam
ette valley, have a material in
terest in the future of Yaquina
bay. The development of the
harbor into a general seaport
means independence of the South-;
era Pacific railroad company and
independence of Portland; con
sumations that will put cash in
the pockets of our producers and
The work already accomplish
ed by the government has result
ed in a permanent channel of
sufficient depth to allow the en
trance of vessels drawing from 15
to 20 feet of water and this, with
the building and operation of the
road now known as the O. C "&
E. R. has lessened freight
rates. The benefit to the farm
ers is perceptable in the higher
prices paid for grain in the mar
kets along the line of the road as
compared; with the prices paid in
remoter towns.
Over $600,000 have been spent
by the general government in the
improvement of the" harbor, the
first appropriation being made in
1880. The government received
back nearly a third of this
amount in the way of duty on
duty on steel rails used in the
building of the railroad; an en
terprise that would not have been
commenced but for the work done
in deepening the channel. It
has " been estimated by trust
worthy staticians that the direct
saving to producers and consum
ers in freight rates, on the actnal
tonnage over the bar, is not far
short ot $1,000,000.

millions. The future extension
of the road to Boise City, giving
an outlet to Oregon's great Inland
Empire, and the proposed
branches to Eugene and Salem,
doubtless depend upon a continu
ation of government work on the
Yaquina bay, naturally, has its
enemies, and powerful ones, too.
Commercial Portland is bitterly
opposed to any such undermining
of her supremacy, as the devel
opment of an independent first-
class harbor at Yaquina would
bring about. She has exacted
tribute from the rest of Oregon
for years, and is not disposed to
forgo her advantage without a
struggle. - Yaquina, like Astoria,
has had to fight the wealthy me
tropol is of the northwest.
Fortunately for both ports,
egon's representatives in con
gress nave represented Oreeon.
While not neglecting Portland';
legitimate interests, they have
not catered to her selfishness and
have worked faithfully.and effect
ively for government aid for all
worthy rivers and harbors. The
defeat of Hermann for nomina
tion was due to Portland machi
nations. Portland tried to defeat
Ellis. Portland . prevented the
re-election of Mitchell and the
Portland Oregonian constantly
attacks Senator McBride. Of
course there is more than mere
political sentiment in all this,
and the only wonder is that many
"cow county" citizens allow
themselves .to be deceived by the
portlanders' pretences, and for
the sake of political issues that
are definitely settled, and for
doubts that have no just cause
for existing, -urge the defeat of

preaching for the physical man ; then put the

preaches. There's a whole gospel in Ayer's

as they did their religion, by its bitterness.

Grady.- According to the plaintiff
a butcher shop and dwelling pwnS
ea Dy. uraay were locatea on ine
terminal point of the county. The
county desired Grady to get off the
grass. As Grady considered' the
grass his grass he told thecounty
court to go to grass, all of which
made hay for the lawyers. The
supreme court has decided that n
legal road was ever located at the
point in question and that in any
event. Grady's 10 years adverse
possession gave him superior title.
Lincoln county is enjoined from
interfering with Grady's property
and is thus shut off from water
privilege by way of the alleged
road. -The county has a pretty
