Were the Corvallis Sports Taken In.
Recent development make it appear that
the Corvallis sports who backed Frank Lewis
so heavily and lost so much in his famous race
with C F Gibson at San Francisco, wore sim
ply dupes, a tough a it may be on them.
The story now is that Lewis is no other than
the famous Jack Gibson, who came to America
from England in 1883, and surprised every
body with his speed, running under the names
of H Wheatley, John D Ryan and Jack Rob
inson, and it is now claimed that his race in
San Francisco waa (imply a put up job to
fleece his Oregon backers, but of the truth of
this we know nothing. We hope it is not so.
Below we give an item from a New York
sporting pper( which gives one version of the
The 125 yard foot race between Frank
Lewis ot Corvallis, Oregon, and C F Gihson,
which took place at Central Park, San Fran
cisco, March 6th, in which the latter won by
less than hve I est. looked considerable like a
job. Lewis held the lead nt lOOyardsi and
his slowing down to let Gibson get in first,
was perceptible to all who ever witnessed a
sprint race, f rom all accounts Lewis struck
Uregon in e eurtiary ana surprised the natives
by his fast trills and was not slow in getting
good backers. Thev followed him to Frisco
ami have paul dearly (or theif acquaintance,
his description tallying with that of Jack Gib
son. 1 think frank Lewis and JackUibeon
are one and the same person. One thing is
certain, had he tried in his race with C F Gib
son he could have won easily.

The duties of the Supervisor under the new

the ratio of one day work for every one

purpose the last preceding year; provided that

The Perkins Farm. Mr H C Perkins last
Thursday left a small basket of fine cherries at
this office, grown on his place near Eugene.
These are the first of the season for which he
has our thanks. He informs us that he will
haye at least 1000 bushels of peach plums this
season, besides other fruit in like ' proportions.
His farm is specially adapted to fruit culture,
being rich land ot a sandy soil Some day it
will be worth a large sura of money, as it is
only a question of a few years when places of
this kind will pay handsome profits.
Short Crop. Parties who have orchards
should not neglect to make arrangement to
take care of their fruit The latest advice
from the Eastern State go to show that the
fruit crop there will be almost ad entire failure
this year, as the Winter ha been so severs as
to not only kill the pioipects, brut in many
places ha killed the fruit tree. With a fail
ure in the Eastern State and a good crop on
this coast, will be assured of a good price and
a demand for all our dried fruits.
Boss Fishermen. The boss fishermen re
potted thus far this season are certainly J A
Deadmond, Marion Watson and B J Dead
mond. They put in a boat at the Spore'
bridge on the McKenzie last Tuesday and
dropped down to Peoria, on the Willamette,
reaching that point Wednesday evening.
