OORVA ZETTK Vol. XLffl. 0)rllis, Benton County Oregon NO. iO THE REPUBLICAN RALLY. A Great Crowd and a Great Time, Tuesday Night. Amidst the firing of anvil-, the burning of red fire on the streets, the music ot the band - and the cheers of enthusiastic supporters, the republican state campaign opened in Corvallis Tuesday night. Early in the evening the firing of anvils began and con tinued until 9.30, while from all directions the people gathered to wards Main street, and rigs of all sorts were seen coming in from the rural districts. There was a special train from Albany and a motor from Inde pendmce, and both brought large delegations these being met at the College and 6th street cross ing by the band and a lare crowd of citizens. The speaking occurred ia the opera house, the building being packed to the doors, and many were turned away on account of lack of room. G. A. Westgate, chairman of the lepublican state committee, presided, and made a brief intro ductory speech: Fred W. Mulkey of Portland, nominee for senator for the short term, spoke at some length and was favorably receiv ed. Another speaker was F.W. .Benson, nominee for secretary of state, and O. ' P. Hoff lor land commissioner, made a decided hit with his pointed stories and illus trations. When Dr. Withycombe enter ed the room he was greeted by a round of cheers, aad a prolonged storm of applause followed him as he advanced up the isle to the platform. A large delegation of students were present and these joined in nine "rahs" for the Doctor, and later gave the college yell ot "Zip boom bee." When Dr.-Withycombe arose to begin his address, the audience stood up and cheered lustily for several minutes, 'thus testifying to the high esteem in which this gentleman is held in this, his home town. Especial mention must be made of the beautiful and elaborate ' decorations that transformed the opera house into a place of artis tic beauty. Flags and bunting had been used unsparingly, and never has the room looked pret tier. There were two excellent num bers during the evening by a male quartette composed of Johu Allen, B. W. Johnson, Prof Ful ton and George Cathey. The speech of Dr. Withycombe in part was as follows: "I cannot say that the nomina tion for governor has come to me unsought. I have been obliged to ask for the nomination at the hands of my fellow-citizsns in all parts of the state and it has come to me after a vigorous and ag gressive campaign waged by other aspirants. - Had anv one of the other men been successful in the recent primaries he would have been entitled to and should have received my cordial support and I am glad to be able to say that I have assurance ot support from all the gentlemen who were pitted against me in the recent primary campaign. "My thanks are due to Ex-Governor T. T. Geer, C. A. Johns, Harvey K. Brown and C. A. Sehlbrede for their loyality to me and to the republican party in the assurances which they have given me, and especially do I tli auk them for the manly and dignified manner in which their campaigns were conducted prior t the primaries. I want to take this opportunity to thank heartily the friends who so loyally supported me and to whose support I am indebted for my nomination. No man ever had more loyal or generous - sup port at the hands of his friends, and no successful candidate ever appreciated the support more than I da My nomination is the more gratifying to me because it comes not from ring or caucus, but direct from the people. I be lieve in popular government and in the right of the'people to nom inate their own public officers. "The direct primary law has come to stay and it ought to stay. It imposes burdens upon the candidates greater than those ot the convention system." But it also lodges political power with the voters, where it right fully belongs. I believe the law will be increasingly popular for the people, and, while some changes in detail may prove to be desirable in the light of ex perience, the plan of nominating public officers by direcc vote of the people must not be disturbed. It is my paramount desire to prove worthy as a candidate of the trust imposed in me, and, if elected to justify the confidence ot the people who have support ed me. For 35 years Oregon has been my home. It is with pardonable pride I refer to the fact that I came to this state when a boy. My manhood has been spent with tbe people of Oregon. I believe that I know them and appreciate their needs. I yield to no man in loyalty to the state of Oregon and in my taith in its future. ' It is mv desire that the cam paign which I conduct with my democratic opponent shall be a dignified campaign, free from personal abuse. I have no dis position to indulge in epithets. I do claim that the record of the republican party , in the past is the pledge of its usefulness in the present. I believe that its prin ciples make for the welfare of the people and at this time the in dorsement of these principles is m re important than any ques tion of preference between men. It is proper, however,,, that I should say that no man has high er ideals than I of what a "public officer should be. He should be fearless in the performance of his duties. He should be amenable to reason, but when he is sure he is right he should not be afraid of criticism. He should, more over be a man of clean life, an example to others, one - to whom the people may look with pride, both in his capacity as a private citizen and in his record as a public official. He should take the people into his confi dence. The government is the govern ment of the people. They are entitled to know what the public officials are doing and it should be the aim , of .the executive branch ot tbe government honest ly and impartiality to protect the laws which the people have made. This is a critical time for the republican party of Oregon. Although the state is republi can by a vote of more than two to one, many of our important offices are filled by members of the opposing party. If the republican organization is to be maintained in Oregon and if republican policies are to be supported, republicans must vote tbe republican ticket. I believe the republican party has a great mission yet to perform fsr the country in general and for the state of Oregon in particular. v If elected, it shall be my aim to heal the wounds inflicted by 10 years of factional strife and to do all in my power to streugthen the party organization, with a view to its increased efficiency in the public service. We are entering upon an era of tedious development. The world has awakened to a knowl edge of the value of our forests and mines. Men in distant states have learned of the fertil ity of our soil, the productiveness of our farms and our orchards. Capital is seeking investment within the state for the develop ment of our varied resources and the improvement ot our means of communication. Our public officers should be full of the (Continued on second page.) THE CREFFIELD TRAGEDY. Story of the Shooting as .Told by Seattle Reporter. The Portland Journal of Mon day contained the following story of CrefEeld's death, which , is more minute in detail than any thing that could be learned from local sources: Seattle, Wash., May 7. Franz Edmund Creffield, self styled "Joshua" leader of the Holy Rollers, was shot and in stantly killed on First avenue near Cherry street at 7:30 o'clock this morning by George Mitchell, of Portland. Creffield was the leader of the band of Holy Rol lers that caused so much excite ment at Corvallis, Oregon, three years ago. Mitchell made no at tempt to escape after the shooting but stood beside the body of his prostrate victim until Patrolman Le count placed him under ar rest. He told the police that he shot Creffield because he had ruined his two sisters, Mrs. Bur gess Starr and Miss Ethel Mitch ell. As soon as he reached the oity jail Mitchell asked permission to send a telegram. He -sent the following to O. V. Hurt at Cor vallis, the father of CrefEeld's wife; "I've got my man. I'm in jail here. George." The shooting of Creffield was witnessed by his wife and a few other pedestrians. It took place outside the Quick drug store in the heart of the retail district. Mitchell has been in Seattle since Wednesday looking tor Creffield. Mitchell was walking up First avenue when he saw Creffield coming down First avenue with his wife on his arm. Mitchell stepped in close to the drug store and as Creffield and his wife, went by hejdrew A 38 caliber revoiVery sending a ball through the: back of CrefEeld's head. The bullet came out above the right eye. Creffield fell to the side' walk and was carried into the drug store and Dr. Bories was summoned. CrefEeld's wife threw herself down by his side and wound her arms around his neck, kissing his lips and hysterically exclaiming at the same time: 'He cannot die, he cannot die; he did no harm to George Mitch ell." Dr. Bories lifted her to her feet saying, "But he is dead madam." - ; The woman was taken to pol ice headquarters with her hus band's slayer and held as a wit ness. The CrefEeld's have been here for a little over a month. They have been living in a little attic room at 116 Fifth avenue. The only furniture in the room was two chairs, a cheap, table and a sleeping cot. The only clothes the woman had on was a tattered skiit and shirtwaist. Her hus band yesterday promised to buy her a new skirt and they were on their way to the store to purchase it when he was shot. Mrs. Creffield says her husband did not see Mitchell. She caught sight of him just as he pulled the trigger. Mitchell is 23 years old and gave his occupation as a la borer. At police headquarters he said: "I killed him; I have been looking for Creffield, and I got him. I have no regrets. I am willing to take any punishment that is meted out to me without a whimper. I did not kill a man, I killed a brute. He ob tained a devilish influence over my two sisters and ruined them and I did only what any true brother would do." The police agree with Mitch-, ell and gave him the best quar ters in the jail making his im prisonment as comfortable as possible. - , It developed that Creffield has been married here twice.-- Over two ; years ago Justice George married him. -The marriage license and certificate shows a ceremony pei toimed ; between "Franz E. Cart field and Miss Ida M. Hunt." The police believe that Creffield gave incorrect names to hide7 his indentity.' His name is Creffield and not Care field. , His wife's name is Maud Hurt. They lived at southeast Seattle for a time with Frank Hurt, the woman's brother. ' Two years . ago Creffield was convicted on a statutory charge. Mitchell says his sisters told him that Creffield, or "Apostle Joshua" as he liked to be called, was greater than Christ. '. Cref field served two-years in the pen--itentiary at , Salem. While in the penitentiary his wife obtained a divorce from him. . He got out of the ." peuitentiary - with good conduct allowance. He- then went to Waldport, Oregon, - and gathered about him the faithful followers who stuck by him. . Threats of lynching drove him out of Oregon. He came to Seattle, won - his divorced wife back and on: April 3, a little over a month ' ago, married her for the second time. . He went out to Southeast Seattle and won her brother back. -He sold his home and took the proceeds to Waldport to hold together his followers. Creffield was going to leave for Waldport in a few days.
