license and without either being
authorized to administer the drug.

" 'Tis true 'tis pity, and, pity
tis 'tis trae" that Corvallis peo
ple do not have an opportunity to
hear the best theatrical attractions.
The reason is apparent, and that is
that the larger and best represent a
large investment and the daily re
ceipts must be greater than could
possibly be secured in towns with
no greater population than we have.
At long intervals, however, there is
an occasion when Coryallis may

Dr: Withy com be has Filed,
Dr. James Withycorrjbe, of
Corvallis, republican candidate
for governor, came over yesterday
and went to Saletn on the after
noon train to file his petitions
with the secretary of state, hav
ing ample signatures from many
counties, sent to him by many
warm suppoiters in his candi
dacy. Dr. Withycombe reported his
campaign as very satisfactory,
and that encouragement was
coming to him from all sections
ol the state aud from heretofore
unexpected sources. Everywhere
where he had been, he said, the
feeling was growing that the re
publicans should this vear elect
the entire ticket by large ma
jorities. That the party was
stronger than ever in the history
of the organization in Oregon,
and that that the members of the
party would stand together as
never m the past. The primary
law, the provisions of which have
been rigidly observed by the re
publicans, he stated, was looked
upon as giving an classes tne
the best opportunity to bring out
any candidate desired, and that
jobbery charges could not be
brought, as was at times the case
under the old convention system.
His own campaign Dr. Withy
combe described as having been
thus far very pleasant. Every
where he had been received with
the greatest courtesy and con
sideration t nd the work, while at
times arduous, has been lightened
by the aid of friends, who had as
sisted materially in the campaign.
Dr. Withycombe went to Salem
on the afternoon train and filed
his petitions last evening. Al
