' ii VI -III. Corvalos, Benton County, Oregon, Friday, January 19. 1906. NO. H POUCE RAID. The "Chinks" Have a Pipe Dream That is no Dream. There was a breeze ot excite ment on the streets Tuesday, when it became ' known that the police had raided a China house on Main street during Monday night, and had there found opium smokers, one of whom was a young woman. Monday afternoon the officers were aiven a "tip" that opium smkine was goine on at this joint from the hours of one to four a. m., and actine on this information it was decided to sur prise the pigtail celestials at their den at 2 130 Tuesday morning. Upon entering the place sev eral chinamen were found lying about the rooms, and in response to a knock on a closed door, "Butterfly" a 70-year old, hid eous old chinamen appeared, and the officers entered the apart ment. Crosswise on one end of the bed lay Rachel Depew, an Indian girl who was former ly employed at a local hotel. In the middle of the bed was an opium smoking outfit with pipes, and old "Butterfly" had appar ently been stretched across the other end of the bed it is suppos' ed, both he and the girl smoking The woman was ordered by the omcers to get up and accompany them, and went into another room to dress. Awaiting a rea sonable time an officer knocked at the door when it was sudden ly opened and a vial thrown out. the girl saying soihething to the effect that "they would not get her this time." She then began coughing and strangling. Ex amination of the vial showed it to have contained Buckingham's hair dye, only a small portion havinsr been swallowed bv the girl. She was taken to the county jail and a physician hastily sum moned who pronounced the pois on in the dve to have been, in his opinion, nitrate of silver. It produced swelling of the tongue and general irritation of the throat, but the quantity was not sufficient to cause death. An at tempt was also made by Miss Depew to lacererate her wrist with a case knife, but she stated that it was "too dull." Two of the Chinamen were ar rested, Butterfly and another named Ling, and lodged in the city jail. A number of opium .pipes and other fixtures, besides several cans of opium, were taken by the police. Other arrests are likely to be made. From indications it seems that the girl had been a resident of the China house for some weeks, at least, a fact never mistrusted by police, citizens nor even by the ladies of the W. C. T.

We were careful to keep the goats- out ot the cold,' and shel tered them well at night. With in three days after dipping, they acted like a ' different band of goats; began to gain in flesh and strength, and became more active and in better heart and spirit. With proper precautions, I un hesitatingly say, "Dip.". Resolutions. Later: Before the affair was ended three Chinamen were involved.

Writing the Agriculturist, Barnett Y. Roe, of Washing ton county, Oregon, gives the following interesting experience in the matter of dealing, with lousy goats: In a recent issue you invited suggestions relative to dipping lousy goats in mid-winter. Fiom our experience I would unhesi tatingly say; Dip, and dip well. A year ago our goats were so lousy that the lice were causing them to die, by reducing their flesh, vitality, and strength and vigor. Considering it a case where a desperate ailment re quired a desperate remedy, we dipped with Little's sheep dip. We fed them a heavy feed of grain to give them strength a few hours before we dipped them and grained them heavily after wards. We 'warmed the dipping Whereas, It has pleased Di vine Providence to remove from our midst, and from her home, our beloved comrade, Mrs. Eliza beth Buxton, whose qualities as a fiiend and comrade placed her in the highest esteem of all; and Whereas, It is right and proper for us sympathizing comrades in this dark hour of trouble to pay our. highest tribute to the mem ory of our departed friend and comrade; therefore, be it Resolved, That we, the mem bers of the Order of Washington, deeply feel the loss of her who has proved herself worthy of our respect and regard and - extend our heart-felt sympathies to the bereaved family and relatives; and be it further f Resolved, That these resolu tions be placed on the records of our order and that a copy be sent to the family of the , deceased, and also to each of the Corvallis papers for publication.

"Everyone will get old if he lives long enough, was the aphorism framed by centenarian Colbert P. Blair to The Spokes- man-Review correspondent upon being interviewed as to how it feels to be 100 vears old. The- aged man continued speaking in a rambling manner, trying to re call the past when he was a lad in. North Carolina, then passing swiftly to the events 50 years later, when, after livinc for varv- ing periods in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Iowa, he "emigrat ed" to "the Oregon country" ar riving in the Willamette Valley in 1853. Mr. Blair's chief pleasure is to i relate experiences with the In dians. He has no sympathy with the red man, and even now grows enthusiastic when telling of the Indian wars in which he served and recounting the num ber of warriors he "fetched down." He served through the Black Hawk war in 1833-4 and escaped unharmed." He was in the battle of the meadows of the Rogue river Indian war in 1853 56, one of the fiercest fights with the red men on record. In this battle he acquitted himself with great bravery, rsceiving high commendation from the com manding officer. "In those days I would sooner tight than eat," said he. "Some how I never liked Indians. Thev were never fair, and for treach ery, well, they had a monopoly on that. Thev are onlv eaod when dead," smilingly concluded xnr. jmair. Mr. Blair was one of the first friends that the late Senator Mitchell had in Oregon. While in Benton county Mr. Blair was active in politics, bavin? been elected to the state legislature in 1862. .Later when Mitchell commenced to become a factor in Oregon politics, he found no truer friend and no stronger suo- psrter than Mr. Bliar. "Senator Mitchell is nnc f the few great men of Oregon," said he. He has done more for the state - than any other .man. He is sincere and conscientious." Mr. Blair referred to the late senator in the present tensed not knowing of his recent death nor of his conviction in the federal court of conspiracy to defraud the government of public lands. Mr. Blair still believes that Mitchell is alive and attendant upon his duties at Washington. If apprised of the diserace and death of the senator it is believed the aged man would be unable to endure the shock, so deeply has he been wrapped up in the life of Senator Mitchell. " Mr. Blair is no burden to bis grand daughter, Sawtell, at whole home he has lived for fifteen years. He occupies an upstairs room and walks up anl down stairs from six to ten times each day. He takes care of the room himself declar ing that ''na one can make his bed to suit him." He eats heartily and says he is always hungry. He has never been ill a day in his life. "If a person wants to live long," he saye, "he must be regular in bis habits and get plenty of fresh air and sunshine. Irregular living and dissipation are sure suicide." He has spent an active, vigor ous life, his occupation having been farming. One week ago last Friday he celebrated the centenary of hia birth, having been born in North Carolina, December 29, 1805, the year of the Lewis and Clark expedition. He says he expects to live many more years, bat as soon as he be comes a care to bis family he will be ready to die. He U the father of eight children, four of whom are dead. The living are: James H. Blair and Mrs. Neeky Clapp, of Lincoln county; T. J. Biair, of Pen dleton and J. B. Blair, who has been a resident of Lake county 33 years, but wbo is now on his way to Montana, where he will reside. - A A peculiar coincidence connected with Mr. Blair's family is found in the ages of the members of four generations. A. grandson, Royal 6. Sawtell, of Athena, is 23 years old; a granddaughter, Mrs. F. H. Sawtell, of Pendleton, is 50 years old; a son, T. J. Blair, of Pendleton, is 75 years old. and Mr. Blair himself is 100 years old. :r - "TJncle Cob," as he was familiarly known, . resided for about fifty years in Benton county. For thirty years of this time he. was court bailiff for this county Several years ago he went to Pendleton to make his home. The above sketch gives his birthday as December 29, but friends residing here who have' known the old gentleman many long years declare that he was, according to his own statement, born December 31st (New Year's eve) 1805. In either case he is now more than 100 years old. He is a remarkable man. Lost Purse. W. G. Emery was the victim of an unusual and unpleasant ex perience Monday evening while returning from Portland to . his home in this city. He came up from Portland by way of Albany and when he went to purchase a ticket at the latter city to ride over the C. & E. to Corvallis, he made the startling discovery that his purse was missing and that he had lost it out of his pocket in some manner whUe on the over land train. Here our townsman was an chored hard and fast and was be coming abont desperate enough to walk home when Neil New house, who was coming home on the same train, acted the Good Samaritan and in due season Mr. Emery rode into his home city. On arrival here he went to the telephone office and sent a call for the conductor of the .overland train when he should arrive in Eugene. Mr. Emery chanced to be personally acquainted with this conductor. In due season the latter gentlemen answered the call and Mr. Emery explained regarding the loss of his purse. The conductor said he had not heard of anybody oa the train finding the purse, but for Mr. Emery to hold the phone and that he would look through the various coaches for the purse. This he did and In a few minutes phoned our photographer that he had found the missing purse. The following day Mr. Emery received his purse containing money and papers. Mr. Emery had been down to Portland to at tend a meeting of the executive board of the Photographers' As sociation of the Pacific North west, being secretary-treasurer of that body, and aside from some $30 or $40' s had some of the As sociation's paper in his purse that he did not want to lose. But this is a case where all's well that ends well, and this end ed O. K. ' ! Oregon Boundary Line. Some little time ago we print ed ths announcement that' the State of Washington was bring ing suit against Oregon to settle a dispute regarding the boundary line between the two states. The following dispatch bearing on this subject was sent out from Salem, Tuesday: Attorney-General Crawford completed his answer in the boundary - line case between Washington arid Oregon this morning. The, brief is very short. It disputes the contention of Washington as to the locati n of the boundary line - on all points, and is accompanied bv a map marked "Exhibit 1," which shows the location of the line a.s claimed by Oregon to be from two tnd a half to five miles north ot the line as fixed by Washing tou. Sand Island, according to-, the Oregon map, is in Oregon. Oa tli Washington map it is two miles north of the Washing ton line. The brief is signed by A. M. Crawiord, Attorney-Gen- erai; Isaac H. Yan Winkle, As sistant Attorney-General, and Harrison Allen, special counsel for Oregon. This case will be heard before the United States Supreme Court at Wash- ingtoa some time next .
