The oratorical contest, to determine
who should represent the O. A. C. at the
intercollegiate. contest which occurs at
McMinnville, March 10th, took place at
the college chapel last Friday evening.
A very large and enthusiastic audience
greeted the contestants, each one of
whom seemed to have nearly an equal
number of admirers. ' "
The Jeffersonian orchestra introduced
the program with an excellently rendered
selection. This and all following num
bers by this organization were -a credit
to the college and the performers. .' '-
Mr. E. B. Aldrich had taken for his
subject "Henry Geotge.'' Its treatment
showed much study and careful prepara
tion, but it is a subject which gives little
opportunity for flights of . oratory or
rnetoricai nourishes. Mr. Aldrich is
forcible in delivery, but he has not yet
acquired the ease, grace, and dramatic
power of the orator.
Something pleasing and artistic was
expected when Miss Lulu Spangler began
her solo a simple love song and all
that was expected was realized.
The Handmaid of Civilization" was
the theme chosen by Mr. W. L. Patterson,
and so ably did be handle it that he was
declared the wirmer of the contest. Mr.
Patterson's success, however, was due to
his excellent control of his voice and
pleasing delivery, rather than to his
treatment of his subject. The O. A.!C.
has never sent an abler representative to
a state contest, and if he fails to win at
McMiunville the fault will lie more in
his paper than in his delivery. ,

Tragedy at Manila.
Manila, P. I., Jan. 7, 1899. j
Union: - I
There was trasedv in the Oreaon reiri- '
ment last night. Lee Moore, 1st Serg't
of Co. L.was shot by . a sentry, Albert
Papst, of Co. M, and died a few minutes
after. The sentry but did his duty, and
strange carelessness on the part of the
dead man and an officer who accompa
nied him brought about the shooting.
Papst was' on guard at a very im
portant post, a large magazine at the
wall near our quarters, and the guards saw
two men supposed to be natives, lurking
around their post. They refused to halt
and the guards opened fire, but the
prowlers apparently, escaped. The firing
was heard at our quarters and it appears
that Moore and an officer went, out of
curiosity, to see the excitement. The
sentries were still watching for the men
they had fired at when Sergeant Moore
dropped over the wall and within' 20 feet
of Papst, who called halt and almost at
the same time' fired,: shooting Moore
through the body. He could not, as
a soldier, have done otherwise. No one
but guards or officers of the guard are
allowed near the magazines even in day
light, and as he knew the person he saw
could not be a sentry, the only con
clusion Papst could rightfully draw '"was
that the man was there for mischief... A
sentry, especially at such an important
post, must decide on matters of doubt
in favor of the defense of his post. And
the officers and vmen while deeply re
gretting the aeath of Seigeant Moore,
commend Papst for doing his duty.
I did not know the dead sergeant, but
all the men in his company speak of
him in the highest terms.
Papst was one of the recruits and
enlisted in Co. M, at Woodburn, when
most of the recruits from Corvallis un
listed, v He jeels very, badly and even
the thought that be Could not have
rightly done otherwise fails to console
him. v . : v.
It is said that one of the natives shot
at was killed and fell into the moat, and
a detttil is looking for the body.

The Two In One.
- The Corvallis Gazette, one of the old'
est republican weekly newspapers in the
state, announces that it will suspend, the
subscription list being absorbed by the
Corvallis Union. Nearly 36 years ago
the Gazette started in Corvallis and has
been during most of the time a lepubli
can paper. At one time, about the mid
die '60s, Dr. J. L. Hill was one of the
editors and proprietors of the Gazette.
At the time of Lincoln's assassination,
Ben Odeneal and Dr. Hill were owners
and publishers, with Rev. B. F. Boyakin,
editor. Two or three years afterward
Wm. Carter, ex-state printer, bought the
paper and turned it into a Good Tem
plar's paper, it being the state official
organ of that society. About 1866 Carter
was attending a temperance meeting in
Portland and left Dr. Hill, who was
foreman, in charge of the office for one
issue. During the week word reached
Corvallis that California had gone demo
cratic. It was a splendid opportunity
for some sport, so Dr. Hill turned it into
a straight out and out 'democratic paper
for that week. Carter came back post
haste from Portland, bis wrath aroused
to a fever pitch by the sudden change.
It aroused the whole temperance element'
in the valley and Carter received many
warm letters from Good Templars. Carter
worked several weeks before he had the
matter back to a quiet state. The prom
inent democrats in Benton county,
among them being the late Judge
Strahan, Wm. Gird and Jas. Hamilton,
enjoyed the joke immensely and never
tired of tormenting Carter about his dem
ocratic paper. When Carter would be j
C. C. Hogue, of Albany, who was for
twelve years auditor and general passen
ger agent ot the Oregon racinc, was
abked his opinion as to the probability
of the extension of the Corvallis & East
ern (the present name of the old O. P.)
says the Sentinel, and he replies that
a great deal depends on the action of
congress in regard to the building of the
ietties at Yaauina bav . A former con-
eJ gress provided for the extension of these
works for a distance of 2000 feet on each
siue ot tne cuannei, dui me Bum nas
not yet been definitely set' apart and so
the work lags, although the contract has
been let to Chicago . parties for some
$600,000. Unless Yaquina bay can be
made a safe harbor for 'vessels drawing
22 feet, Mr. Hogue thinks, there will be
very little use in extending the Corvallis
& Eastern further.eastward. The length
of the road is now 145 miles between
Yaquina City and Idanha station, in the
Cascade mountains. 1 The road has been
surveyed eastward from this point across
the state, to form a junction at or near
Huntington, but no work has been done
on this portion of the road since 1887.
A great deal of timber and wood is now
being hauled over the road from the for
ests of the Santiam, but this constitutes
the bulk of the business oil the east end
of the line. Mr. Hogue thinks that the
Yaquina harbor has already been much
improved by the jetties thus far conr
structed. There is now 22 feet of water
inside the bar at high tide, where there
was formerly a depth of but 18. Six feet
added to this depth will make quite a
seaport of Yaquina bay, and a conti
nental railroad, he believes, would soon
follow the attainment of this depth. The
transcontinental railroads now in exist
ence are therefore opposed to the further
improvement of Yaquina bay, in Mr.
Hogue's opinion, and this accounts in at
considerable degree lor the opposition to
extension of these jetties during this
Miss Anna M. Lewis, who for twenty
weeks of intense suffering has patiently
and uncomplainingly waited the final
summons, departed this life Thursday,
Feb. 9th, at her home near this city.
Miss Lewis came to Corvallis from
Lodi, Wisconsin, in 1894, with her
parents, Mrt and Mrs. Jas. E. Cronk.
Their move to Oregon was made in the
hope of improving Miss Anna's health,
but consumption bad fastened itself upon
her, and relief only could be hoped for.
Twenty weeks ago she was confined to
her bed. All that medical aid and loving
friends could do to relieve her suffering
and comfort her fast waning life was
Miss Lewis was a meuber of the fresh
man class ot the U. A. J., and stood
high in the admiration and esteem of her
classmates, who loved her for her gentle,
womanly disposition. She wis apt in
ber studies, and bright and winning
in her conversation.
The funeral services were conducted by
Dr. Thompson at the family residence,
Friday morning at 10 o'clock, and the
interment occurred at Crystal Lake cem
etery City Council.
The city council met in regular session
last Monday evening. Nothing of great
importance came up for consideration.
Lee, Taylor, Hall and Pygall were absent,
the two latter on account of sickness .
It was decided that if a buyer could be
found the city should dispose of the
building and property on Madison street
formerly occupied by . the Gazette Pub.
Co. R. E. Gibson, P. Avery and J. R.
Smith were appointed a committee with
full power to act.
Bills amounting to $360 on the general
and $50 on the street fund were allowed.
