O. V. Hurt arrived home
Sunday evening from Seattle,
where he had been a witness in
the case of George Mitchell for
the killing of Edmund Creffield,
the Holy Roller Joshna. Mr.
Hurt thinks that . the case
will go to the jury within a day
or two and feels certain of a ver
dict of acquittal for Mitchell.
In speaking of the case Mr.
Hurt says that the statement
given out te the effect that E. H.
Baldwin, of this city, had said
on the witness stand in Seattle
that he would kill his own
daughter rather than see hei in
the snare ot a Holy Roller such
as Creffield, was untrue. : Mr.
Baldwin did not make . such,
statement. - What he reallysaid
was that he would kill anyone
who lured her to such a fate
rather than see her a victim of
such practices.
Back From the Mines.
Saturday afternoon Brady
Burnett arrived home from
Southern Oregon, where he has
some good paying mining pro
perty. Lack of water is the ex
cuse lor Brady's vacation. It is
eight months since the gentle
man was last honae. '
Brady brought back a very
fine large nugget that is enough
to inspire any man to try his luck
in the "digging.". The nugget
weighs a trifle more than three
ounces and its value is about:
$50. It is a fine specimen of
gpld, free from quartz and alloy.
Mr. Burnett appears well satis
fied with life in the mines and
his prospects in Southern Ore
gon. He expects to pass the
greater part of the summer at
home in this city.
They Ought to Go.
The tearing down and hauling
away of the old China wash
house on north Main street is an
example worthy of emulation by
other property owners in Corval
lis. With the removal of such
eye-sores Irom numerous streets
of the town, and a general and
thorough cleaning up of the lots
on which they stand, the city
would look like a different place,
even if no new buildings were
built to replace the old.
With a good, substantial build
iug on one lot, and a tumble
down, defaced and battered old
wreck on the lot adjoining, very
little improvement will be made
in the town as a man naturally
feels as though it is money
thrown away to build well and
then have his structure look like
thirty cents because of the dis
reputable old shack that stands
next door.
The watchword for Corvallis
should be "Progress," and one
of the first and best signs of this
spirit would be the abolishment
of these old China dens, which
give the average passer-by a
chill, and cause the stranger to
think twice before seeking a lo
cation on certain business streets.
