NEWS OF THE NORTHWEST
HE TRAVELED AS A
x (Journal Special SerTlce.)
Corvallls. Or., Jan. 1. Corvallia liquor
dealers dealers had a visit the first of
this week from an Individual who wore
a star engraved "U, S. Inspector," and
who claimed to be an Internal revenue
officer. At Broders' saloon lie visited
the cellar alone, and afterward told the
proprietor that a number of the kegs of
beer In the .cellar were not stamped.
Had this been true, it would have meant
a penalty of iioo for violation of the
Internal revenue 'laws, but the. oily
tongued stranger magnanimously offered
to make it all right with Broders for
J25. The offer excited the suspicions of
the saloon man, and the amount was not
: paid. Early the next morning the "In
spector" departed, leaving In the minds
of all local saloon men a strong sus
picion that the man was not what he
pretended to be, Nothing has since been
heard of him here. ,
Lull In Trade. '
There is a very decided lull in busi
ness of all kinds since the holiday rush
Is over. Not .for some time has there
been so many Idle men about Corvallls,
awing to lack of work. - The flouring
mills are running only .: spasmodically,
the eawmills are not putting In half
time, the carriage factory is in opera
. tlon only now and them, and other lines
of business are equally dull. This is
, largely due to the dull season and to the
furtner fact that few who have occasion
to hire help care to do so at this season,
when the short day's work performed
corresponds so poorly with the wages
demanded. It la the season when poor
men bewail their misfortune, and when
the employer sighs for longer hours of
daylight In order to get bis money's
worth of his laborer. s -Pneumonia
Over a dozen cases- of pneumonia are
reported in this city today. The condi
tion Is attributed to the dense fog that
has hung over Corvallls almost constant
ly for over a week, and which causes
the native Oregdnlan more shivers than
all the rains that could fall in an ordi
nary Oregon winter.
Abandonment of Sural Free Delivery.
; Citizens of Benton county are -much
J abandonment of the rural free delivery
J routes out of Corvallls, and the final
icnapter in-me anair is awauea wiin
" anxiety, i The cause of the trouble lies
In the bad condition of the public toads,
"-whlch : prevent the carriers from mak
lng their routes on schedule time, and
which requires more than two horses in
order to make the trips dally. No orjjl
'. nary team can stand the 25-mlle drive
t each ,day over such roads, and the pay
of the carriers Is too small to allow of
feeding more than two head of horses;
These are cited as the principal reasons
for the discontinuance of the routes, and
' unless citizens along the lines fall. to
snd make strenuous effort to Improve
-' th liighwaVSv It is entirely probable that
-r-rtetrJis will- sooiv-ba.obUed of th ruraL
free delivery service, wnicn is sucn.a
benefit to all. Such is the Information
received from headquarters at the Cor
vallJs office. Postmaster Johnson Is ex-,
ertlng every effort to arouse, the inter
est and co-opera.tipn of Benton citizens
in order that the rural routes may re
main in operation, but the action will
have to be speedy or the 'order of the
postmaster-general will set the doom of
the routes In question, to the lasting re
gret of residents hi this section. v.

East B streets. When the alarm, was
Klven. the creator part of the - Van
couver people were either at a . waicn
party or a dance. These, parties,' lor a
time, . were broken ud and the people
mingled together at the scenes, of the
fire. j -4 - '!,,. ' '
. It was owing -more to good fortune
than anything else that the entire Duuct
lng, as well as the dwelling house near,
were not entirely destroyed. The fire
department . did good . work after it ar
rived but the fire was rapidly consum
lng the building before the alarm was
sounded. The fire started from a a
fectlve flue, and the interior of the
building was very much damaged before
any evidence was "nresented outsiae.
There has been several fires of late,
and almost In every Instance the origin
was traced to a defect In the flue, and
there Is a disposition among" many to
make a thorough -Investigation of the

' A. Kopp, a farmer living near Van
couver. caused a considerable commo
tion as well as mucli trouble to himself
last night. It is believed that Kopp was
a little too much under the influence of
intoxicating liquors and henee his
trouble. During the fire on corner of
Seventh and East B last night, Kopp
became dissatisfied with the action of
the firemen, and sought to give them
some of his . advice. The firemen, of
course, did not heed him and ordered
him out of the way. It-required the
assistance of the. police to prevent Kopp
from Interfering with' them, and for so
doing Kopp became ' quite , wrathy at
both police and firemen. He gave vent
to his reelings in a very Doisierous mant
ner. using .vile : and obscene language'.
To . stop this, the police took him In
charge and placed him in the Jail. Kopp,
however, gave ball for his appearance
at a ''stated time before Justice BparKs,
and was later allowed to have his 11b-

STATE LAND OFFICE .
MAKES BIG RECORD
(Journal Special Service.)
Salem. Jan. 1. -The state land office
has completed a most prosperous year's
business and Chief Clerk G. J. Brown
stated last night that the record of col
lections, circumstances considered, was
the best in the history of the state. On
May 20 last land sales ceased almost
entirely, - owing to a previous leglsla
tlve enactment, providing for an Increase
of 100 per cent in 'the price of state
lands. Prior to that date state school
lands sold at $1.25 per acre, but on
that date the price was advanced, the
minimum being: fixed at 32.50. I'p ' to
that time, this-year, 1,333 certificates of
sale were issued by the department but
so great was the falling off in sales
on that date that from May 20 to the
close of the year only 65 sales of lands
were made by the department.
In the biennial term of 1901-2 the office
collected on notes,' principal and inter
est.' 3761.648.66, and of this sum 3448,
809.85 was received in 1902. In 1903,
up to last night, the receipts aggregated
$435462.48, or only 37,857.17 less for
1903 than for the preceding year, - This
was , remarkable, in view of the entire
suspension of sales of state lands after
May 20 of the year Just closed.''
During the month-, of December lust
closed ..ie office collected on account of
the several funds $38,469.34. a fine record
for the last month of the year. This
money was apportioned among the sev
