"The railways are about to present
a united front to the labor unions
Already there i3 a move on foot to
reduce the pay rolls by 10 per cent."
Such was the statement made Sat
urday in Chicago by an executive of
ficial of a leading Western line.
The plan at present does not con
template a reduction in wages, it was
said, but the working force is to be
reduced in evei possible way.
That an agreement has been en
tered into by the big railway systems
was not denied. While there is no
formal association, the understanding
is said to be definite and binding.
he primaiy object is to present a
solid front to the labor unions so that
employees of the road cannot use
another road as a club to bring their
own road into subjection.
Word has gone forth on all large
railroads that retrenchments are to
be made in certain lines where the
companies can most easily reduce
orces, such as car shops, repair
shops, maintenance of way, depart
ment and improvement corps. The
unprofitable trains are to be taken off
and fast trains reduced in speed to

A Special from Cot rallis of last Friday's date says: Corvallis
is in a state of excitement tonight due to the fact that several local
people, who are seemingly almost crazy on religious subjects, have band
ed themselves together in an organization known as the "Holy Rollers,"
and, as a part of their imagined duties, are going through as senseless,
follish and absurb antics as were ever preformed by any religious
fanatics in this county. The band is lead by 0. V. Hurt, Benton
County's members of the Republican State Central Committee and a
leading citizen and business man of Coi vallis.
The "Holy Rollers' have torn up their sidewalks, have re
moved the furniture from their houses and aro even taking the
partitions from their dwelling to form a vast bonfire to inform the
world of their "complete sanctification." Like their ancestors of cen
turies ago they are making burnt offering, but in lieu of extra human
beings in their number or the proverbial fatted calf, dogs and cats are
compelled to serve as their sacrifices. Two dogs and a cat have been
offered up on their imagined "altai and the stench in the neighbor
hood of the headquarters of the "Holy Rollers" is almost unbearable.
This band of foolish, fallacious fanatics consists of Mr. Hurt
and family and Mrs. Hartly and daughters. The organisation of
"Holy Rollers' was started in this city by an Easterner who was here
a few weeks ago. Mrs. Hunt and some of the children became con
verted to the movement but Mr. Hunt did not fully adopt their
opinions until Tuesday. He then gave up his position in Kline's store,
where he has been a faithful employe for several years, saying he did
not need to work as the Lord would now take care of him. Mrs. Hart
le)"s son protests against her taking part-in the grotesque ceremonies
and is tiding to get her to leave the band. Her husband is away
from home and knows nothing about the matter.
The headquarters of the "Holy Rollers" and the
the ceremonies are being performed is near Fisher's mill
skirts of the city. As this is outside the city limits of
local officers have no authority to stop the fanatics in
actions. The county officers visited them last evening
on the out
Coi rail's the
them to quit destroying propeicy, but Mr. Hunt told the authorities
that they must obey the will of the Lord, and consequently could rc
cognize no earthly power. The officers, however, will put an end to
the ridiculous proceeding if offensive or destructive ceremonies con
tinue. The "Holy Rollers" derive their name from the supposed fact that
when a people become completely sanctified and joins this organization
their names are written on a holy roll in Heaven and they are thence
forth "Holy Rollers." This is one of the most peculiar organisations
ever heard of in Oregon, and so far as is known their strange ceremo
nies and sacrifices are unequaled by anything that ever happened in
this state for absurdity, foolishness and absolute idiocy.
The fanatical antics of these people have attracted great atten
tion here aid hundreds of citizens have congregated around the sacrifi
cial altar of the "Holy Rollers" today to see furniture, walls and side
walks burned up and dogs and cats offered up as burnt offerings.
Until he adopted his peculiar religious opinions and affiliated
himself with this band Mr. Hunt was considered one of the leading citi
zens of Corvallis. He has taken a prominent part in the Republican
party of Benton County and has always been know n as an upright, hon
est business man.

Brutality to Men and Bird.
Brockway, Or., Oct. 2i, 1933. Will
you kindly inform me if it is advanta
geous or permissible to pluck turkeys
alive? Is it fitting that at a festival
like Thanksgivine the guests at many
a table should cijoy (?) eating tortur
ed, miserable birds? Hoping for an
answer before the horror begins, I am
faithfully, "A Startled Observer."
(Such dressing of turkeys or poultry
is brutal in the extreme and penons
doing so should be punished severely.
The present manner of bleeding poul
try to death ought not to be allowed,

ia to cut the heads off quickly using a
sharp ax, of course. Ed.'
