SAID IN PASSING.
It is a matter for regret that
those claiming to be republicans
failed to support their candidate
for governor in Monday's elec
tion. It is more than a matter
. for regret; it is a reproach rest
ing first upon every voter who
failed in his support, and ulti
mately falling upon the whole
Not one well rounded objec
tion was made or could be made
to the candidate. In fact, his
integrity, his correct and accur
ate knowledge of the needs of
the people, and of the things
necessary to the development
and progress of the state made
him a candidate meriting the
support of all good citizens. His
numerous speeches evince a
grasp of public affairs by him
equal to that of the best men,
on either side, engaged in the
There is no difference among
republicans relative to party
measures. Every honorable con
sideration moved for the loyal
support of his party associates.
There is not the shadow of doubt
that many democrats, knowing
the peculiar fitness of the man,
cast their vote for him.
It remained for republicans to
defeat him. Why? Because
old party bosses have been de
posed in the interest of the peo
ple, and as they passed down
and out under the primary law
they were determined to register
one parting "kick." It is the
last. Never again can they
exert any influence in party con
cerns. Yet they were able to
subject real, honest, loyal men
to reproach and humiliatipn.
In this county republicans
showed more spirit and better
metal. For years enough of
them had given "aid and com
fort to" the enemy." By reason
of this the principal county of
fices were in the hands of the
minority and had been for years.
This condition has been changed.
Ultimately it will be wholly root
ed out, and the republican cus
tom of short periods in the same
office will probably be adopted
by both parties.
That democrats aided in mak
ing these changes is doubtless
true, for not a few of them are
opposed to long tenure of office.
The election is over. No ani
mosities have been excited, and
all may easily calm their ruffled
tempers and join hands in mak
ing Corvallis the cleanest, most
attractive and desirable place in
the valley for home-building.
Says It's False.
Mr. Editor: Kindly permit
ma to make the following state
ment in your paper: It has
coma to my ears since election
that a story was circulated in
which I was quoted as saying,
Mr. Paul Dodele, candidate for
commission sr, "was a drinking
man." I desire to brand this
story as a malicious, manufactur
ed lie. At no time and to no
man was such a statement ever
made by me. The man who
started this about me, lied and
he knew it.
Geo. W. Denman.
To the Voters.
I desire to express my grati
tude to the loyal republicans who
valiantly supported me in my
candidacy for t-h? office of
sheriff. I also wish to express
my appreciation of a like cour
tesy shown me by many demo
crats. Thanking you all, Ire
main, Very truly, j
Fred C. Peil.
The Packing House Scandal.
The Chicago packers are re
ceiving a large amount of free ad
vertising, but it is not of a nature
that will tend to increase their
profits. The President in his
message urging passage of the
Beveridge amendment, alludes to
the practices indulged in at the
Chicago packing houses as "re
volting," and the plain statement
of what Las actually occurred in
the handling of food products in
that city warrants much stronger
condemnation. -,' Food - adultera
tion and improper handling of
meat products are due to the tact
that packers see in their improp
er methods an increased profit
over that which could be secur ed
by the exercise of cleanly, decent
methods. Nothing brought out
i i any of the numerous investi
gations of beef trust affairs has
ever disclosed the slightest indica
tioa of any qualm of conscience
on the part of the trust managers
against indulging to the limit in
all kinds of sharp practice and
dishonest work, providing there
was any money t be made.
Mr. J. Ogden Armour and his
multi-millionaire associates un
doubtedly cared nothing about
the sanitary condition of their
packing-houses, or the condition
of the diseased animals which
were converted into a merchant
able product in their houses. So
long as the product could be
placed on .the market and sold at
a liberal profit there was no con
cern over the health of the per
sons who bought it and used it in
blissful ignorance of its true con
dition. But this fearful tesult of
special commissioners Neill and
Reynolds, in which the simple
statement of facts discovered dur
ing their investigation is nauseat
ing in the extreme,' will have the
effect of touching the meat tru t
on a sensitive spot. With mil
lions of consumers reading the
story of packing-house nastiuess,
tere is certain to be a pronounc
ed decline in the demand of
staples of this character, in the
preparation, of which the meat
trust has beea growing enormous
The packers have been guilty
of incredible nastiness and cruel
disregard for the health of the
consumers, but until they were
brought up whh a round turn by
the Government ' there was . no
evidence on their pat of any ac
knowledgement of wrongdoing or
a desire to do better. As usual,
when a reform is long overdue,
the pocketbook must be affected
before a start can k made toward
reform, tion, and then the guilty
are liable to be worse injured
than they would have been had
they behaved themselves all the
time. The foreigners, especially
the Germans, have always viewed
our packing-house products with
a certain degree of suspicion, and
recent disclosures show that the
suspicion was well founded. We
are graciously informed, how
ever, that all of the diseased
meat was sold to American cus
tomers a statement of fact
which substantiates the generally
accepted opinion that the Ameri
can citizen will meekly submit
to almost any injury and in
dignity which the trusts care to
force on him.
This essential feature of the
President's message regarding the
matter is embodied in the asser
tion that "a law is needed which
wilj enable the tuspectr.,rs of i the
General 'Government to inspect
and supervise from the hoof to
the can the preparation of meat
food products." If such a sys
tem is perfected and the inspec
tors are "inspected" at proper
intervals, American packed
meats may be restored to public
favor after the present stench is
forgotten, but there is nothing
to indicate that it will be an awak"
ened sense of public duty and
decency which will bring about
the reform.. Instead it will be a
discovery ot tne tact tnat con
sumers will noc buy rotten meats,
and that an exposure of their
rottonness curtails trade. The
meat trust will be goodwhenever
it is watched, and there is no
opportunity for it to unload its
dirty, diseased, rotten products
on the public. Oregcnian.
The date for the city clean up has
been set for Friday, June loth and in the
meantime there is general activity in
the work, by individual?, which will
when taken altogether, be a very good
step iu the task, of beautifying tha city.

Benton county school teachers.
The opening number on the
program was an overture by F.
R. Overlander's orchestra;
Mayor A. J. Johnson then made
the address of welcome on behalf
of the city," and while brief' it
was most appropriately worded
and voiced a real and hearty wel
come. Rev. M. S. Bush made an ad
dress of welcome in behalf of the
churches of the city, -and while
at times facetious, in the main he
quite ably outlined the position
of the church in the matter oi
The response to the addresses
of welcome was mde by Presi
dent E. D. Ressler; of the state
normal school of Monmouth.
While brief, the gentleman was
in excellent good humor and in
a light vein- entertained those
present in a happy style.
Miss Lulu Spangler contributed
a vocal number and was accom
panied by Prof. Taillandier.
Mrs. C. E. Peterson, in her vo :al
solo was accompanied by Miss
Margaret Fowe Is. Both ladies
sang splendidly and to the evi

The principal address of the
evening was made by President
B. F. Mulkey, of the Ashland

speakers than President Mulkev.
He tookfor his subject "Hamlet,
and before he was half through
with his lecture all were convinc
ed that there was "something
rotten in Denmark." To a large
degree he paraphrased this great
est work of the peer of all writ
ers. His explanations were made
in a most scho'arly manner and
not only interested but edified
those in attendance.
The day session of Wednesday

and many splendid talks and
papers read, together with dis

Golden Medical Discovery will be mailed

Buffalo, N. Y.
Many years of active practice convinced
Dr. Pierce of the value of many native
roots as medicinal agents and he went to
great expense, both in time and in money,
to perfect his own peculiar processes for
rendering them both efficient and safe for
tonic, alterative and rebuilding agents.
The enormous popularity of "Golden
Medical Discovery" Is due both to Its
scientific compounding and to the actual
medicinal value of its ingredients. Tho
publication of the names of the ingredi
ents on the wrapper of every bottle sold,
gives full assurance of its non-alcoholic
character and removes all objection to
the use of an unknown or secret remedy.
It is not a patent medicine nor a secret
one either. This fact puts it in a class
all by itself, bearing as it does upon every
bottle wrapper The Badge of Honesty, in
the full list of Its ingredients.
The "Golden Medical Discovery " cures,
weak stomach, indigestion, or dyspepsia,
torpid liver and biliousness, ulceration of
Etomach and bowles and all catarrhal af
fections no matter what parts or organs
may be affected with it. Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets are the original little
