During the past year twenty-seven meetings have been held, at each of which business of more or less impor tance has been presented and disposed of. The club has received during the year more than 5,350 inquiries. In answer to these inquiries 4,500 book lets have been mailed, 850 letters written and 750 local papers sent. Whether we have had many converts by information sent out or not, we can not always tell, but we know this that many new families have come in, that thousands of acres of land have changed hands at advanced prices, and we know that something must attract these people here. I am satisfied that eight or ten thousand inquiries cannot be anwered without bringing some re sults.

Salem, Dec. 5.—Comparing the at tempts to shield the fraudulent circula- I tors of the University referendum > cases with the defense of the McNam ara brothers in Los Angeles, Judge Woodson T. Slater, who is conducting | the case for the plaintiff, opened the arguments and the case before Judge j Galloway here today. 11. J. Parkison was deeply scored by | Slater for employing certain of the circulators after he had been informed that some of their work w h s fraudu lent. Slater held that Parkison is re sponsible for at least 10,000 names, many o f which have been proven fraud ulent. The contention of the attorney for the plaintiff was that inasmuch as the pluintiff had produced prima facie evi dence that 0,788 nan.es were fraudu lent, the defense should hear the bur den of proof that the remaining names were valid. More than 5,000 names appeared on sheets that had no petition heading, which is strictly against the provisions of the referendum law, and Slater con tends that these should he thrown out. He also believes that the circulators should be held accountable the same as an election officer, so that if fraud is proven against them, the petitions that they circulated arc to he declared void, as the election would be if the judges and clerks were found guilty of fraud. S. P. OFFICIALS INSPECT. Officers from Oregon and California Stop Here. Officials of the Southern Pacific from Portland and San E’rancisco passed through here Wednesday on a tour of inspection. They found things in a satisfactory condition and made no statement of any contemplated im provements. This is the second time this station has been inspected within ten days, which may mean that some improvement in the way of a depot may he under consideration. Dl-tf. SHORTAGE OF FREIGHT CARS. Local Mill Men Unable to Get Cars Enough. Local mill men are having difficulty in securing sufficient cars to make their shipments. This condition has prevailed for some time. This is a peculiar condition, as freight traffic is comparatively light, but it is learned that between 1,500 and 2,000 cars are laid up for repairs on aide tracks along the line, as a result of the shopmen's strike, which seems to be as far from being settled as it was a month ago. The railroad commission will not allow these cars to be used until fitted for service, and it is understood that the railroad can not secure sufficient help. To Attend House Warming. It is expected that fifteen or more members of the Commercial club will attend the house-warning given by the Eugene Commercial club this after noon and tonight. That number of members have signified their inten tion of going, and several more are ex pected to join the party. The Eugene i club promises the boys a good time.

These items I have mentioned are certainly of some importance and in the end, when the forests are cut down, it will be these industries that will sppport our town. We have worked to the end that we may have better streets in town.

Last Saturday the football team of the Cottage Grove high school played against a team composed largely of Cottage Grove boy* who are now at tending the O. A, C. The game proved to be fast and interesting and resulted in a score of 10 to 0 in favor of the high school boys. The spectac ular features of the game were the punting of Williams, the visiting full back. and the forward passes of the home boys, which they repeatedly worked with success. The Corvallis boys complained some what of shabby treatment given them by the local boys. They also charged that the coach of the local team agreed to fill out the O. A. C. team, and that, after learning the signala, went back on them and played with the high school team. The O. A. C. boys also claimed that no competent foot ball judge would have conaidered allowing points by which the local team scored.
