Sensational and Untrfle.
a report wnicn was in circu
lation about the streets this week
and found its way to the Orego
nian, contains the sensational in
formation that Mr. Mack Porter,
who resides eight miles south of
this city, was held tip by a loae
highwayian near his home last
Frid5eveniflg and relieved of
$6 in cash and his silver watch.
Mr. Porter was in Corvallis the
other day and sooa put to rest
this absurd story. He had not
been held-ap, aor had he heard
f anyone else being. When an
offens"e of so serious a nature as
highway robbery is committed,
news of it, as & rule, is not slow
in reaching the sheriffs office.
If that officer has no official
knowledge of a report of this
nature, the Gazette makes it a
practice to verify sueh items be
fore publishing them.
The Newport Regatta.
Last summer the Gazette
contained an item suggesting the
advisability of holding a regatta
at Newport eaoh year, and stated
that the idea had been advanced
by W. E. Yates. While the
matter was at first considered in
a more or less humorous vein,
the practicability and many ad
vantages of the thing haye be
come so apparent afcer mature
consideration, that there is reason
to believe that within a few years
a regatta, similar to the annual
event of this nature held at As
toria, will take place at Newport.
That the subject is being
seriously considered is evidenced
by a challenge received this week
by Judge Ya'tes from Mr. Josiah
Gideon, of Elk City, for a yacht
race on Yaquina Bay next year.
There is little doubt that this
and other matches will be ar
ranged between clubs in the va
rious valley towns and the first
Newport regetta will be held
next summer. .

splendid powers as an orator, and
his discourse contained some fine

resort to extemporanious remarks,
detracts from the merit and interest
of the lecture. The three requisits
of an age in which great men can
