gonian, discussing possible demo

state offices in the coming spring
campaign, mentions Judge W. S.
McFadden, of this city, as a likely
candidate for supreme judge. Of
course, no democrat can hope to be
elected to a state office in Oregon,
but if Judge McFadden receives his
party's nomination for supreme

hard fight for election.

Some eighteen months ago Mrs
Whitaker underwent an operation
at St Josephs hospital fat Portland
and a large tumor was successfully
removed from the abdomen, and
after recovery Ehe returned to her
home apparently well, with the ex
ception of her left limb, which has
continued to refuse to Bupport her
body, due probably to some injury
to the nerves. After examination
Dr. Ramsey informed her that as it
bad gone so long it would probably
take some time to successfully

VICTORY fOR PACIFIC.
Although Defeated, the Farmers Played
a Good Steady Gamo.

well pleased with the showing made by
the farmer lads. With the exception of

Their great weakness is in offensive
play. Thiir team' work is ragged, and
their interference weak and slow in
forming . v This, of coarse, is due to in
experience aid lack of practice, hut the
advantage it gives their opponents is
very decided. During the entire game,
the farmer's had the ball in their poses-
sion not to exceed ten minutes, yet they
held the university down to two touch
downs inthe first hall, and one in the
last 25 minutes of the game. Time and
again O A O held the visitors for yard
age, only to lose the ball on a fumble, or
be compelled to kick on the second
down. The game was clean and excit
ing, and neither side made use of a
Pacific kicked off to Captain Gault
who ran in 20 yards. The ball was ad
vanced 15 yards by hammering the line
and then punted into Pacific territory.
The visitors tried the farmers lino, but
found it impregnable. Then Bay found
bole between tackle and end and
plunged down the field for forty yards.
With the ball on O A C's 6-yard line,
Millis was sent around the end for the
first touch down, after 12 minutes of play.
He failed to convert it into a goal, and
the score stood, P. TJ., 5; O. A. C., 0.
After ten minutes more of fast work
in which Captain Bay was sent against
tackle for certain gains, and short runs
were added by Millis, a second touch
down was scored; goal was kicked.
Score, P- TJ., 11 ; O. A. C, 0.
The farmers kicked to P. U.'s 20-yard
line, aud succeeded in stopping the vis
itors who had advanced the ball by ram
ming, to the center of the field. Wil
liams pluaged through P. U.'s line and
made a sensational (run of 40 yards.
Time was called, with the ball in the
farmers' possession on Pacific's 10-yard
The Stanford system of playing by
series, disconcerted the home team, who
had been' used to heating- signals before
the ball was put in play, and they were
slow in tackling in the first half. During
the latter part of the game, however.
they watched the ball and ' moved when
it was put in play. As a result the last
half was a pretty exhibition of football.
A short kickoff, which was well han
dled, left the ball in Pacific's possession
almost in the center of the field for the
first down at the opening of the second
half, and in 11 minutes Bryant was sent
over for the last touchdown, after a hard
struggle. Millis kicked a difficult goal
Score, P TJ, 17; O A C, 0
The farmers seemed to tain rather than
lose heart and their tackling was desper
ate. P TJ could get the .ball to the ten
yard line, but the farmers . would secure
possession of it and punt oat of danger,
and it was a see saw between center and
OA C's ten-yard line during the re
mainder of the half.
Corvallis is not experiencing a
boom. fche has learned the tal
acy of attempting to grow in
this way. But she is daily add

gradually on the increase; prop

and the number of her business
houses is being constantly added
to. So substantial is this present
growth, our citizens have scarce
