CORVA US T1 PTPlFflIl Vol. XLIH. Corvallis, Benton County Oregon; Friday. June H. 1SOS. THE RETURNS Unofficial Election Returns From State and County. The election is now a matter of history. Sad to chronicle though it be, in some localities there lurks in the hearts of de feated candidates something of bitterness. This is too bad. It is hard to go down in defeat at the polls and it is too bad that condiditions are such that this must be. But politics is not a boy's game and the defeated must accept the same as gracefully as possible. In Benton county it may be said that so far as we know those who suffered reverses at the polls are takin the matter philosophi cally and making the best of it. We regret to report that Dr. Withycombe, a peerless man, and who made a most honorable fight for the governorship of Ore gon, will be defeated in the neighborhood of 2,000 votes. It is nothing short of a shame that the republicans of the state should disgrace themselves so far as to defeat so able and honor able a republican. Jonathan Bourne, for United States senator won out in public favor to the tune of about 2,500 over his democratic rival, Senator Geann, for the place. Hawley and Ellis, republican candidates for congress, . are both sate. Woman suffrage and local option are both defeated in the state about 10,000 votes. In Benton on the county ticket the republicans made substantial gains. They elected judge, com missioner, clerk and recorder. Hitherto the judge and clerk were democrats. More straight republican tickets were voted in Benton county last Monday than for many long years before. The party stood together better and was rewarded tor doing so. Following is an unofficial report: STATE TICKET The following figures are the unofficial returns and represent the majorities : TJ. S. senator, Bourne, Rep 170 Hawley, Congress, Rep 300 Withycombe, governor, Rep 308 Benson, Sec. state, Rep 325 Steel, State Treas 340 Eiken, Supreme Judge 300 Crawford, Att'y Gen'l... 350 Dunniway, State Printer, Rep 38o TOTAL TOTB COUNTY TICKET Senator, A.

Since the identity of the murderer of Sheriff Shaver, Police Officer Hanlon. of this city, and Captain Henderson, of Woodburn, has never been established, the fol lowing paragraph taken from the Independence Enterprise, is of interest to Oregon City people: Frank Smith, the outlaw, who recently killed an officer of the law in Oregon City and two in Woodburn, and was him self killed by a posse near New Era, is probably tne same des perado who killed Harry Harris, a deputy sheriff of St Croix County, Wisconsin, two years ago. A picture of the dead out law was sent by Henry Con stance back to his old home, and a deputy sheriff of St. Croix County is of the opinion that he is the same desperado that gave that county trouble. While Smith was in Wisconsin Sheriff Harris received instruc tions from the officers of Montana to look out for a man answering Smith's description, wanted for killing a marshal of a Montana town. After sitting beside him and engaging the suspect in con versation until convinced : tnat he was the man wanted, the Sheriff undertook to arrest Smith and was shot. Smith made his escape and was after wards surrounded by a posse but through the aid of a sister made a second getaway and was not heard of again until his escape in Oregon.'.' A Serious Runaway. Wesley Millhollen figured in an ugly runaway . while en route to Corvallis Wednesday morning. With his son, he was driving along near the Everett place when the horses became unman ageable and started to run. Henry Stone was coming behind the rig in his buggy and in the hope of rendering assistance drove up at a fast trot, but this frightened the Millhollen team the more. Mr. Millhollen was thrown out, alighting on his head, and almost dislocating his neck. His forehead was badly skinned, a gash cut on the nose and another under the eye, and other injuries sustained,' although none are of a serious character. Mr. Stone brought the injur ed man to a local doctor's office where he received needed atten tion, after which he was taken to the home of Taylor Porter, where he still remains. This is the second serious run away tnat Mr. Millnollen nas had within a year. Society and Anarchy. It is the opinion of Andrew D. White that the nations of . the world should co-operate to effect the suppression of anarchy. "Anarchy" says the Internation al Enclypedea, comprises all at tempts to destroy the existing social order without reference to any theory of reconstruction, and by the use of any means, fair or foul, by which individuals or in stitutions representing constituted authority may be destroyed. . This represents the popular conception of all anarchists. It describes the ultra-radicals who are the un compromising enemies of public order and decency, who plan murder and .reckless public calamities. They are the fanat ics who have been most in evi dence in recent years." There is so-called philosophical anarchy, but its philosophy is destruction and its fruit is mur der. It has done nothing for the betterment - of the world, never can and never will. Its only attitude toward society is that of murderous enmity. It has never maintained any. other attitude, and inherently its future must be like its past. Its hatred of society is self-chosen. Its de termination to slav and to tear down is the one characteristic that has kept it in the public eye. It has survived thus far on the record of bloody violence. It says to society, "I'll strangle you if I can." In its own defense society cannot choose between toleration and extermination. Every assassin who aims at the murder of those in high places is not an anarchist. But assassina tion is the chosen policy of this cult, and its warfare is against society, and not against the in dividual. The bomb thrown at Madrid was a conscienceless assault upon society rather than upon the King and Queen of Spain. It was murder without mercy and without quarter. At any time and in any place similar assaults are liable to be made. Indiscriminate murder without warning is the propaganda. Mr. White points out the duty. Rig orous and effectual suppression is society's sole defense. Telegram. IT WILL OCCUR The High School Track Meet in Corvallis Next Year. Bert Pilkington has just ar rived from a visit to the Eastern Oregon high schools where he went on athletic business for OAC. The date for the big inter-scholastic high school meet is May 18, '07.

Alter an illness that began a year ago last March and continu ed to grow more serious day by day, Miss Isabel Whitby died at the family home south of Cor vallis at one o'clock Tuesday afternoon. The funeral occurred at the residence at 2 o'clock yes terday afternoon, the services be ing conducted by Rev. E- J. Thompson, of Independence, as sisted by Rev. Patton. Inter ment was made in Oak Ridge cemetery. Isabel Whitby was born on the farm where death met her, 20 years, six months and 24 days ago. She graduated from OAC in the class of '04, and the pall bearers at her funeral were all former classmates, she being the first to pass over to the other side. Miss Whitby's ailment was dropsy, and several times she took treatment iu Portland hospi tals but to no avail. Iu college, deceased was a very bright student and a universal favorite, and her early . going is mourned by a very large circle of friends. Takes Exception. Few people seem to under stand that one of the provinces of a newspaper is to accept ad vertising matter. During the recent campaign the Gazette re mained neutral on woman suff rage. However, we accepted a couple of articles from the 4tantis": and they were paid for; they were plainly marked as paid, to boot. Now comes an unknown Writer, supposedly a woman, with a let ter setting fsrth her views, which, in order to show a spirit of fair play we print, as follows: Ed. Gazette: After reading vour article on woman's suffrage I will take a stand iu its de fense. Does not a widow lady who pays taxes on a farm have to pav as much road tax as a man does? And as she cannot go out and work on the road she has to add that amount to her taxes. And as for jury service look at the common run of jurymen and then say if you can that a good intelligent American woman is not fitted to sit on a lury. I do not , think that any man that is not gentleman enough -to be a gentleman in the company of one or more women even if they were locked up for days t nights, is capable of adminis tering justice to anybody. Son of our heaviest taxpayers in Ir. coin county are women and wh should they not have a say as to the paying out of that money? You say if the good women cat vote so can the bad ones, you talk as if the bad women were in ma jority. Now I do not think ss as far as my experience goes. You ask in what particular would state or town be benefitted if the women voted? Now could not the good men and the good women com bine forces and down the baei? and would that not be a benefit? I think so. Now the best schools I ever saw were run by the wo men. If they can run the school can they not run the rest of the county and state. And I don't think it would be run with whiskey as it is now. If a candidate wants to be elect ed he takes a box of cigars in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other and then he thinks he is sure ot election. From One of the Women. Receives Reply. When sending articles to San Francisco sufferers just after the earthquake, Mrs. S. N. Wilkens, among others, pinned a slip ot paper containing her name and address to some articles of cloth ing which were sent to the needy of the Bay City. A few days ago she received the following note: I found vour little note pinned on the sleeve of your pretty waist and I answer to thank you from the bottom cf mv heart for vour kindness. Another lady and a girl 16 years old received some of your garments, and I know if you could nive seen, us you would know you bad made some one happv, for none of us saved scarcely anvthing but what we hid on at the time of the terrible earthquake and fire. I, myself, am ouly in this city three months trom Chicago, and I will re turn some future time and will not forget how kind and christ ian like you and the W. C. T.
