Charles Everest left yesterday
morning for Portland, after a ten
day's visit in Corvaliis with his
family, Mr. Everett is employed
on the electric cars, holding the
run between Portland and Van
couver. He states that things are
on the boom in the metropolis, that
tlere is a vast amount of building
on and work is plentiful.
Mrs. Ed Buxtoto, who several
months ego underwent a surgical
operation in a Portland hospital, is
differing intensely and is considered
in a critical condition at the family
home in tbis city. Many friends
hope for the speedy recovery of this
estimable lady. Miss Minnie Bux
ton, the daughter, who is a graduate
nurse, is at her bedside.
A .few days.. ; ago Grant Elgin,
Thomas Callahan and Dick Kiger
were down on the bottom along the
river on the latter's place four miles
below town and ran across a deer.
It is a seventh day wonder that the
venison got away, as it undoubted
ly looked good to the aboye men
tioned ' gentlemen. Only the re-j
spect in which they held the law
saved the deer's life.
Some contemptible cur took it
into his head to cut the glass in a
number of windows on Main street.
By the use of a glass cutter or some
very hard substance the large glass
in the windows of the buildings
occupied by John F. Allen, the
First Mational Bank, E. W. S.
Pratt and P. M. Zierolf were cut
deeply and in a Bense ruined.
There are no words expressive
enough to use in dealing with the
person who is low enough to com
mit such an outrage.
It seems strange indeed that in a
city like Corvaliis, a city of orderly
law-abiding citizens, there should
be such a disregard for the rights
of others and disrespect for the
law, among the younger element, as
is frequently manifested. Beeides
innumerable cases of petty stealing
about town, the report is now made
by responsible persons that Crystal
Lake cemetery is being visited by
youug boya and certain shrubbery
broken from that placed on the
graves. This is surely a deplorable
state of affairs, and young men in
their teens are old enougb to know
better. If the dead cannot rest in
peace,what is to be expected next
from this class ot youngsters?
F. P. Sheasgreen came up from
Portland, Saturday evening, in
order to viBit with his daughters,
Miases Harriett and Mable, and to
nttend some items of business.
Speaking of his Portlaud affairs,
Mr. Sheasgreen said that every
thing was progressing nicely. The
mill in which ne holds a large inter
est, has been thoroughly overhauled
and is now practically ready for
steaming up again. The capacity
has been increased and new ma
chinery installed. The owners are
getting lumber on' the groud and
in about ten days the saws will be
buzzing. Mr. Sheasgreen expected
to transact his business here in
time to take the afternoon train
yesterday to Portland.

The buying movement in the hop
market continues unchecked, but
the activity is widely scattered and
most of the transactions are in
mall quantities as is to be expect
ed with so much of the crop already
moved. Many unfilled orders are
still on hand, some of the traders
holding bacK in the belief that the
prices will weaken. At the moment
the tone of the market is very
teady. - .
Regent J. D. Daly came up from
ortland, Saturday, to audit the
usual grist of monthly bills for
OAC. . While here, in talking of
certain reports regarding hin:self,
Mr. Daly said in unmistakable
anguage that there was no founda
tion c f truth whatever in an article
which appeared in the Portland
Telegram a month or two ago and
which was reprinted m the Gazette
to the effect that he expected to be
come a candidate for the office of
state treasurer.- He says he had
nothing to do with such statement
and the article appeared without
his sanction or knowledge.
The clam chowder supper given
by the Christian endeavor society,
of the Congregational church," on
last Friday evening at the Farmer's
iotel was an exceedingly pleasant
ffair. The parlor and dining room
were beautuully decorated witn
Oregon grape, mistletoe and crepe
p.per. The young people had
everything well planned, and the
ffuests were served in a most satisf
actory manner. As this was the
first clam chowder supper, some
curiosity was naturally felt, but it
has been prononnced by judges as
being a perfect success. The en-
deavorers had pledged their support
for the new hymn books, which
haye just been put info the church.
This sum was realized and the so
ciety is to be congratulated on the
