SPECIAL COLLEGE FUND.
Bill Introduced fcy Representative Nichols
for Parposs of Crcatius Same.
A bill for aa set entitled "An
ac6 to make an appropriation for
tlia support arid beaefit of the
State Agricultural College, and
to levy an annual tax to provide
a permanent fund therefor and
appropriate the same, and to re
peal an act of the legislative as
sembly of the state of Oregon,
entitled 'An act to be entitled
an act for the support of the State
Agricultural College' and approv
ed October 20, 1882 ; and to repeal
section 2 of aa act of the legisla
tive assembly of she state of Ore
gon, entitled An act to appro
priate moneys for , the purchase
of land and for the exlention,.
development and annual main
tenance of the State Agricul
tural College, and also for the
payment of legal expenses in-j
curred by the Board f Regents
of the State Agricultural Col
lege in the current litigaMon by
nominees of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, South,' approved
February 18,. 1809," has been
introduced in the house by Rep
resentative Nichols, of this coun
ty, and was read for the first
time January 16, 1901.
The object of this bill is to
secure an appropriation of $20,-
000 out of the-general fund in
the state treasury not otherwise
appropriated, for repairs-, build
ings, and improvements neces
sary and convenient for the State
Agnoultural College. .
It also provides that in com
pating tne amount 01 revenue
necessary for state purposes, the
governor, secretary of state, and
state treasurer, shall, in each
year, also compute the" sum of
$25,600 for the support and ben
efit of the State " Agricultural
College, which : shall be levied
ana collected m the same man
ner as other taxes for state pur
poses, and the fund arising there
from shall be- kept separate from
other funds, and shall be known'
as the Agricultural College fund.
This fund 'shall be drawn
quarterly by the Board of Re
gents, and may be used for the
purposes of paying the current
expenses of the college, - salaries
of professors and instructors, and
wages of employes; fef making
additions to the library and ap
paratus, for buildings, improve
ments, and repairs, and , for the
purchase of additional land need
ed for the use of the college.
The act of October 20, 1882,
which is still is foroeJ appropri
ated out of the general fnnd of
the treasury the' sum of $2,5Co
annually, for fee support of the
college. This appropriation has
not been drawn since 1893, and
nw aggregates the sum of $ 17,
500. The aot approved Feb-
raary 18, 1889, which is also in
force, appropriated the sum
of $5,000 annually in aid of cur
rent expenses of the 8ollege, and
payrnenJ 'of professors and in
structors. - This appropriation
was not drawn.during-the ears
from 1894 to i8974 inclusive of
both years, and aggregates $20,
000 now due the college. - The
purpose of Mr, Nichols' bill is to
repeal the acts named it being
expressly understood that the
repeal shall not affect the appro
priation of $10,000 made at the
present session, under aud-by
virtue of the provisions, of ' sec
tions of the act of February 18,
1899 and. in lieu of . the annual
appropriations, to -provide a spe
cial "fund for ... the support of the
college as outlined above, y : -
Kidnapped His Chickens.
.- While - hunting . below town
this week, Sheriff Burnett ran
npona flock of chickens at an
isolated spot in the, ; woods, A
hay rack and some: outbuilding
hanging upon the brush nearby
aroused the suspicion - that this
property. and fowls had been pur
loined by' her recent ' flood . from
some farmer up . the creek. -This
belief, was . strengthened'- when
after crossing a hundred yards of
water to a little ' island, . an old
doininick. hen , welcomed ; him
with a cheerful cackle. Oii the
road :home, the sheriff met Mr.
St.. German, whose anxious
countenance -betokened bereave
ment' Mr. .Burnett' rightly
surmised , that'., his ; toss . was" " a
dozen hens and a hayrack. " Mr.
St. German stated that his chick
ens , Were" roosting on the. rack
when the' flood came and "carried
thetri away. The sheriff directed
him to the spot in the woods
some t-wb miles distant, and it -is
probable' that by this writing the
wanderers are again in the fold."

Arrived From England.
Last Monday two coops con
taping twelve pairs ei Englisn
partridges arrivrd- - irr Albany,
from England. .t different
times mention has been made in
the Gazette regarding the
movements on foot for- introduc
ing these delightful little game
birds jn to this state. The. birds
have been liberated on the farms
of the Line brothers, near Knox
Bsue, Linn county. It is the
desire of all true sportsmen that
these partridges be afforded the
utmost protection, both in and
out of season. A writer in the
Oregoaiao. who has hunted these
birds in their native land, gives
tne following account of them
and their habits:
They aro a fine game bird.
and lie well for a dog. They do
not run from a dog's . point, but
will get up at times -withfn a foo
of the dog'(s nose. Bui. with a
broken wing they are swift on
toot. Their habits are like those
of the Bob While quail. A
whole covey roosts in a bunch.in
the middle of a stubble after th
grain is cut, or in a pasture
where there is plenty "of dead
grass.for cover. They nest in
dead grass, inold fence. tows, and
are very close sitters. They do
not visit timber except the outer
edge of it. " They like a wide
range of cultivated fields, and
travsl from fence rows, never go
ing far away from tie place they
were hatched. If flushed they
will fly across the field to fche
next 'fence. ' In the snooting
season, when a covey is started,
they will break and alight in
separate places and stay just
whera they drop, 90 they give no
scent to trail them, and-it re
quires a fins nose to catch the
scent when witmn three feet of
the bird. .

Robert Blaze, Weil Ifnowtl Here, Slays
Bis Partner in San .Francisco..'
- The killing of William Tre
wella by Robert E. Glaze in San
Francisco,- recently, has recalled
incidents which happened in
this and Polk county 2 ? or to 1
years ago in which Glaze and
his brother, Til, were prominent
actors. Together with these
brothers, Sheriff Burnett attend
ed school at Dallas in the early
seventies. .Some years later
Til Glaze, entered, the saloon
business at Dallas. One night a
free-for-all shooting and cutting
scrape was indulged iH at his
plaoe of business and when the
smoke cleared away, Johnny
Whitley, one of the participants
was lying cold in death, the vic
tim of a gunshot wound. While it
was believed that Glaze or his
partner had committed the deed,
it was neyer proved on either of
them. The father ofWhitley
swore that ha would kill Glaze,
aaa ne came to Dallas one day
tos that purpose. Til anticipated
him, however, and as a result of
tne dual between tnein the fun
1 C l1 1 1 TTT1
crai 01 ine eiaer w mtiey was
held a few days after.- Til Glaze
finally opened a saloon in Prine
vule, where he was killed four
cr five years ago in a shooting
Young Whitley was known as
a desperate character. While
driving a band of , cattle on the
road near the place where J. O,
Wilson now resides, he was met
by James Martyn, who now lives
at Irish Bend. Mr. Martyn and
his wife and first babe, were in a
buggy ' behind a span of fiery
herses. The animals became
frightened and started to run
through- Whitleys band of cat
tle. Wmtley rode up alongside
of the buggy aad asked Mr. Mar
tyn what he meant by trying to
stampede his cattle. While Mr.
Martyn had his hands full in at
tempting to control his team, he
tried to -explain to Whitley, but
the latter begrau slashing1" Mr.
Martyn over the face with his
cattle whip. This so enraged
Uncle Jimmy that he asked for a
gun at the first . farm house in
tending to avenge himself, but
fortunately was unable to secure
one. - . ,
Robert Glaze was lor some
years a clerk in the Baldwin
Hotel in San Francisco, till it
burned down , when he went to
Honolulu, where he ran a hotel.
About -10 months ago .he- and
Trewella took possession of the
Windsor Hotel on Fifth and
Market streets and appeared to
be friendly. - According to the
story of an "employe, who un
known to Glaze was an eyewit
ness of the murder, Glaze laid in
wait for Trewella in the kitchen
of the hotel, and as he ap
proaohed riddled him with bul
lets. Glaze makes the excuse
that he shot in self-defense, as
Trewella made a motion as if to
shoot him, and also says that
Trewella. had mistreated Glaze'i
wife. But from the story published-in
; the San Francisco
papers it looks-like a deliberate
and inexcusable murder. : l
