The Greffoz case still occupies to some extent the Corvallis mind. The committee at work on the books find the sum at present slightly in excess of $2,000. They have been investi gating and find that so far all parties who have had sewers con structed through thier property have paid and hold receipts from Mr. Greffoz, although not credit ed with payment on his books. What is bes; to do is not yet ffphp.-mifipd. nor is there any in dication that anything is going to be done in the matter. On the other hand what can be done? Although subject to censure for sticking OK on Mr. Greffoz's books when they were in such a muddle is but a. natural indul gence for many of our citizens under the circumstances, it do:s not replace the missing money nor point out what best to do in future, so there is little to be gained by talking of those sup posed to expert the books. ARE TURNED LOOSE. Not a True Bill in the Case of the Greens. Since last February Fred Green has been an inmate of the Ben ton Ccunty bastile, while his wife has been confined in the Linn county stronghold, joint ly charged with the murder of E. G. Sarreett. Their case came before the circuit court for Lin coln county last week and they have been acquitted. Their case was handled by Attorneys W. S MeFadden and J. F. Yates, of this city. - The supposed crime for which they were held was surrounded by peculiar circumstances, and as these could furnish good mo tives for the Greens to commit the deed they were bound over to await the action of the grand jury. The setting of the tragedy was at Lutgens, on the Alsea Bay. Sharrett was Postmaster there, and in connection with the office conducted a small general store. He boarded with the Greens. One morning when Mr. Sharrett failed to respond to the morning call, as was his wont, Mrs. Green went to his room and found him lying in a pool of his own blood, a Winchester rifle near hint. This is the story told by Mrs. Green. After the shoot ing Sharret lived a week, and finally on the day before he died, willed all his property, amount ing to a few thousand dollars, to Mrs. Green. Shortly after residents of the Lutgens neighborhood remem bered that Frank Lutgens, who preceded Sharrett as postmas ter at that place, had been mys teriously killed just a year be fore, and that the mystery sur rounding his death was never cleared up, began to suspect foul play in connection with the Shar rett death, and ugly rumors regarding- the Greens were set afloat. Later, when it was learn ed that Mrs. Green had been the beneficiary under the Sharret will, it was pointed out that there was a motive for the Greens to commit the crime, and the ugly finger of suspicion was pointed at them. In the meantime Mrs. Green had gone to Portland on a vacation trip, and was reported to have fled. Portland authori ties were notified of the suspect ed crime, and of the warrant is sued for the G:::r.s, and soon lo cated Mrs. Green. It developed, during the investi gation that Sharrett was in poor health, and had been for a year prior to the shooting; that he Winchester in the position' in which he was found, and that he had often said that if his physic al condition did not improve he would take his life in the manner in which it was taken. People ioi uncom county are generally satisfied with the finding of the grand jury. While in the Linn county jail Mrs. Green was a model prisoner. When cleared of. the charges against them Mr. and Mrs. Green and many friends held a sort, of reunion that was memorable in its way. Irrigation Congress. ( oniiimed fr m Firt Page. Executive Commiiirf nave de cided to systewat ze the wo:k of the next Congress nrco'dinu . to Articles 3 ami 5cfour Constitu tion; consequent! the woik of the 13th Ongicss . has been di vided into five sections. Each section will he conduct ed .by a Chaii in mi; who will be recognized as au tmiiient author- uy in nis line, wmcn insures a thoroug;h exposition of the re spective subjects through the pre sentation of papers, addresses and discussion by the most eminent men interested in forestry, irri gation, climatology and their correlated subjects. In the various sections, infor mation will be dispensed regard ing the increasing of production by irrigation in the humid as well as in the arid sections; forestry problems in New England, and along the Appalachian Chain, as well as along the Rocky and Sierra Mountains; engineering applied to protect from the de vastation by floods; drainage of the submerged areas; directing and conducting the water to its most beneficial use; climatologv with special reference to the ser vice of the Weather Bureau throughout the United States; and colonization of new areas developed through irrigation. It is confidently predicted that the coming session of the Nation al Irrigation Congress will be more highly instructive and en tertaining than any Congress which has preceded it. . Every State in the Union is vitally and directly interested in the subjects to be discussed. The Vice-President and mem ber of the Executive Committee for each State are urged to make the provisions of the call as wide ly known as possible, and insure the largest possible delegation from their respective States. What Will Result? Railroad men, says an exchange, are watching developments now that it is known the Corvallis & Eastern is wanted by the Co-Operative Christian Federa tionists, and the belief is general that the long-talked-of connection with Gould's Western Pacific will certainly be brought about if A. B. Hammond can be induced to part with this strip of road ex tending from Detroit through Albany and Corvallis to Yaquina bay. With the C. & E. in its possession, and the Oregon Military Wagon Road grant of thousands of acres of choice land deeded to it, the acquisition of the Booth-Kelly Lumber Co.'s chain of mills would place the fed eration in ownership of the strongest combination of industries and property in the state. The immense belts of timber growing on the military road grant, which is 12 miles wide, a major part as yet untouch ed by the woodman's ax, would be of in estimable value to the federation, as it could cut all of the material to be used m the construction of the towns planned to be located on the strip acd have mil lions of feet left for commercial purposes. W ilh railroad facilities the i orpora tion w ill be in a position to bid for a big share of the lumber business on the coast, especially in those districts reach ed by rai'. A right of way for the road into Portland from Albany or a point in the vicinity of the present terminus at Detroit is already assured. Several sur veys have been made through the val ley, other ' than those occupied by the Southern Pacific, and all oneasy grades, so building north would be simple. No thought is being given to the question of terminal ground here, for it is asserted Portland stands ready to provide that so soon as it is assured connection has been made with a transcontinental Hue. iYhh such a road entering Oregon from the East the enormous amount of lumber al ready routed that way over the Harri nian lines would be doubled for the in terloper, as not only would he mills of the federation cut for the eastern mar kets, but many mills in the territory now forced to ship by the Southern Pa cific would quickly avail themselves of the splendid opportunity offered to ship through other channels. X:i' ?.;:ceil "n a'" 'ora t'es l!::;; ZZ.ir.l-. roan will fight the change of ovnernhip in the Corvallis & Eastern. To have that lre pass into other hands means i that the projected exienfinn to Ontario will not be built to connect the Oregon Short Line and Southern Pacific. Though a branch may traveise the mili tary rnarl, the main line will strike flniith wanl to meet Gould. Forming a shorter road to the East the Gould connection would sec u re a hnge share of both pas senger and freight business, and thus make inroads into the Ilamuian reven ues wh cli might at last act as tl e sort of lever for lower rates the Ore 'onians have long sought. HarriroHn's contem plated extension of the Columbia Southern will not deter the federation Irom pushing the O. A E. onward if on'-e the. oivnPr hip is vested in that unique body.
