About the. middle of Wednesday
afternoon the driving horse of R.
L. Taylor took a epin on its own
responsibility. It appears that it
had been tied by the bridle, instead
of a haiter, near what is known as
the Ben Woldt corner and for som
unknown reason broke loose and
struck down thiough the western
part of the city. Eventually it
turned and cams back onto Main
street at the Hotel Corvallis corner.
Here it caused a scattering among
the barbers and others who were
sunning themselves on the pave
ment. The animal, minus its
bridle, but with buggy attached
mounted the walk in acrobatic!
style and for a few seconds there
was something doing. The horse
was stopped up on tbe walk and
submitted quietly to be unhitched.
Aside from a broken bridle and a
sprung axe for the buggy no damage
was done. Mr. Taylor says he can
not understand what caused . the
animal to break loose, as it is un
usually good about standing shitch-

The following bit of inform
ation appeared in the 'Oregonian
Tuesday as the result of an inter
view with Dr. Withyconibe:
Never before in its history has
the Agricultural College at Cor
vallis been doing a better work cal
culated to fit young men for the
work of helping to . bring out the
unlimited resources of the state.
This is the statement made by
Dr. Tames Withy combe, director
of the experi tnentaT station at the
college. Dr.' Withycombe spent
yesterday in the city, and discuss
ed enthusiastically the work of
the Corvallis institution.
"We-have -at .present,' said
he, "an enrollment ' of 700
students,' representing ' practically
every county in the state. The
work seems to be taking a tech
nical form to a large degree, and
at present T there are' 150 young
men taking the mechanical
and electrical engineering course.
In the agncultural course there
are approximately 100 students.
The constituency of the school is
charming, and last year's report
shows that Multnomah is send
ing a larger number of students,
having . 52 . in the engineering
course. This argues well tor tne
state, as it will help in : the. de
velopment, of Oregon's immense
resources, lne rapid develop
ment of the lumber industry and
the utilizing of the power by
electrical plants creates a demand
for these young men. .
Great progress in the ; agricul
tural features has been ' made,
and interest in this work is stead
ily increasing. In 1899 there
were but two graduates from this
course, while last year there .were
seven, which mumber may .be
surpassed this year. In fact
there is a larger enrollment of
students in the four-year agricul
tural course than in any state m
the Union in proportion to
"The standard of work in the
entire school is high at this time.
Graduates are admitted as seniors
in such Eastern institutions as
Cornell. The work at Corvallis
is fully abreast ot that in similar
institutions of the J East. The
agricultural students are 17 per
cent of the whole student body,
or 23 per cent of themale portion,
which I regard as being as good a
showing in this department as at
any time in its history, consider
ing changed conditions in tbe
From Former Home.
Hon. A. J. Johnson or Cor
vallis, " for the past ; six ' years
national bank examiner for the
northwest, has been induded to
stand for the republican nomina
tion for state senator in Benton
county, as he expects to retire
from the arduous work in the
federal service, work that took
him away from home for the
greater part of : the time. Mr.
Johnson is one of the rising and
able young men in the republi
can 1 party. Of fine business
attainments, with a standing in
business-circles second to none,
and of unquestioned integrity,
he-is a splendid type of . repres
entative, and with his experience
in legislation would make Benton
county a'u ideal representative in
the upper house of the Oregon
legislature. His nomination
would be followed by election,
and this in turn bv the best and
most energetic service possible in
the Oregon assembly.
Archie J.Johnson is a native
of Jefferson, Marion county,
where he was born on a farm in
1867. As early as 14 years of
age he became a clerk in a store
at Scio, and later, after taking a
business college course, he again
became active in business in
that city, where he remained for
a number of years, with the ex
ception of a year in Seattle,
where he was engaged in real
estate business. Returning to
Scio, he engaged in merchandis
ing and banking, and while there
was elected to the Oregon legisla
ture as a senator for Linn county
in 1095. He was an active and
influential member of the senate
for four years, and some of the
best laws bear his name as author.
In IQ97 he introduced a bill for
taxing foreign companies, which
ianea 01 passage lor tne reason
that the lower house did not or
ganize. He has been a member
of the county central committee,
i.as scrv.u .cio as mayor an
school director, and since he was
