EXECUTIONS AT PEN
.Murderer Egbert, of Harney County,
Will Be Hanged January 29.
The new execution chamber at
the Oregon State Prison has been
completed with the exception of
arranging the trapdoors upon which
condemned men will stand while
the ropes are placed about their
necks.
The execution chamber is a brick
building in the rear of the prison.
On the first floor is a prison room,
in which two steel cells will be
constructed for condemned prison
ers. In one corner of this room is
a narrow flight of stairs leading to
the second floor, which is one large
room, with space for about 100 per
sons. Across one end of the room
is a platform, ten feet above the
floor of the room and seven and
one-half feet from the ceiling. A
narrow flight of . steps leads up to
this platform at one end.
On the floor of the platform are
two openings about three feet
square and six feet apart. Above
each of these a heavy iron ring is
fastened to a heavy timber in the
roof of the building. Trapdoors
and tripping devices are yet to be
constructed and then the arrange
ments will be complete for the exe
cution of Murderer Egbert, who
killed two Deputy Sheriffs in
Harney County several weeks ago.
The distance of the drop can be
anything up to ten feet. When
the trap has been sprung, the body
of the condemned man will hang
in full view of the witnesses.
Egbert is now confined in a cell
in the south wing of the prison,
apart from other criminals. A
death watch is maintained over
him night and day. He appears
to be in good spirits and seems to
have little, if any, dread for the
end that awaits him on January 29.
H. Hirschberg, of Independence,
was in Dallas on a business visit,
Monday.
It has not been many moons
since the quaint humor of the coon
song called "I've Got to Go Now
'Cause I Think Its Goin' to Rain,"
caught the fancy of singers and
auditors by its clever insight into
the feelings of a proverbial "quitter."
And now the same composer, Nat
Osborne, has written, with another
lyrist, a companion piece to the
above, with the striking title,
"Here's Your Hat, What's Your
Hurry." M. Witmark & Sons, the
publishers, are deliahted with the
enormous orders which they are
receiving daily for this song; some
thousand of copies of which were
sent out from their office to pro
fessionals last week.

ADAMS COUNTY NEWS.
Hunters generally will not regret
that the late legislature did not
definitely legalize the pheasant
measure. Some expression of local
sportsmen appears to favor prohi
bition of pheasant shooting for a
year, but is opposed to the two-
year season. Occasional sentiment
would require hunters' licenses, as
in other states. This would carry
a nominal cost to home people, but
would exact enough from hunters
from abroad to help carry out the
game laws. For it is the visiting
sportsman, with the best gunB,
splendid dogs, etc., that thins the
ranks of the finest of game birds.
It is not at all a pleasant sight to
observe a Fortland hunter return
ing home with as many birds as he
can carry. General testimony is
that birds were scarce this season.
and a real measure for their en
couragement, within sensible lim
its, might be a good thing. Albany

BUSY COUNCIL SESSION
Sidewalk Improvements Proposed,
Tax Levy Made, and Bicycle
Ordinance Passed.
The city council was in session
until nearly 10 o'clock Monday
night, and a large amount of busi
ness was disposed of. All the offi
cers of the city were present.
Ihe city tax levy for general
purposes for the year was fixed at
6 mills. The amount raised by
this levy, together with the revenue
derived from licenses, fines and
miscellaneous sources, will be suffi
cient to pay the running expenses
of the city for the year and leave a
balance large enough to pay another
$500 on the City Hall debt. With
a 6-mill levy last vear, the current
expenses of the city were met, $500
was paid on the hall debt, and
there is still a balance of $700 in
the treasury. It is believed by the
council that, with prudent and
careful management, a sum greater
tban $500 can be paid on the hall
debt this year.
A resolution assessing and levy
ing a tax of 51 mills for the pur
pose of raising money to pay the
interest on the water bonds and
one-twentieth of the amount of the
bonds was also passed, all the
members of the board voting in its
favor. The water, tax this year is
higher than it will ever be again,
for two reasons: First, that the
bonds were sold and the money
paid into the city treasury several
months ago, and the city is obliged
to make a levy sufficient to pay the
accumulated interest to January 1,
and a full years interest from that
date: second, the levy made Mon
day evening will raise, in addition
to the interest, the sum of $750, or
one-twentieth of the amount of the
bonds. This $750 will be loaned
by the city, and a sinking fund
will thus be created. Bv levying
an amount equal to one-twentieth
of the face of the bonds each year,
and loaning the same at interest,
and then loaning the interest fund,
the entire amount called for by the
bonds can be raised long before the
debt falls due. With the present
total amount of taxable property in
the city, ($300,000,) a tax of 4J
mills hereafter will pay the interest
on.,, the . bonds and also, raue the
annual sum of $750 on the princi
pal. This ill make the actual
cost of the water 2 mills on the
dollar, figuring the taxable property
of the city at $300,000, (and the
amount of taxable property in
Dallas is steadily increasing.)
Ulaims against the city were
ordered paid, as follows:
GENERAL FUND.
J. M. Grant, salary and fees $38.05
Wm. Kersey, labor 75
J. J. Williams, salary 9.00
Wm. Jaull, stove and mdse 14 35
WATER FUND
W. T. Muir, attorney's fees $300.00
Interest on water bonds . . $300 00
The bill of M. D.Ellis for electric
lights ($125.75) was referred to the
finance committee.
An ordinance to license the rid
ing of bicycles on the sidewalks of
the city during certain months of
the year was read second time and
passed by a unanimous vote of the
council.
An ordinance to prescribe the
compensation of the City Marshal
was read second time and further
consideration was postponed until
the next regular meeting of the
board.
Polk county's share of the state
tax is $36,840.

OREGON'S ANNUAL BUDGET
Amount to be Raised for Ordinary
Expenses Is Much Less Than
Average State Revenue.
The official estimate of the ex
penses of the State of Oregon for
the year 1904 shows a total of
$1,408,310.10. Of this sum $273,
310.10 will be raised by indirect
taxes and miscellaneous receipts,
leaving $1,225,000 to be raised by
a direct tax upon real and personal
property. While this is the largest
sum ever raised in Oregon for state
purposes, it is not so large in pro
portion to population and in
dustrial wealth as was the levy of
load, when the revenue was
$1,121,000. The expenses this year
will be unusually large, however,
as they were in 1893, and the esti
mates just made public do not m
dicate the ordinary cost of the state
government, tour extraordinary
appropriations are provided for
$250,000 for the Lewis and Clark
Centennial, $100,000 for the Indian
War veterans, $165,000 for the
portage rai.way and $100,000 for a
right of way for the canal from
The Dalles to Celilo. These items
of expenses aggregate $615,000, and
by deducting this sum it is found
that the amount to be raised for
the ordinary expenses for 1904 is
but $610,000. This is $50,000 less
than the average state revenue for
the last sixteen years.
A glance over the items in the
estimate of expenses will show that
Oregon's state government is not
an extravagant one. Salaries paid
to public officers are reasonable,
but not excessive. There are no
useless and expensive commissions,
the state institutions seem to be
economically conducted, and the
appropriations for new buildings
are moderate in amount. Concern
ing the extraordinary appropria
tions there has been but little
difference of opinion. Of the Lewis
and Clark air appropriation,
almost every dollar will be spent
here in Oregon for labor and
materials required to make the
Fair a success. This investment
will bring to the state several
millions of dollars appropriated by
the Government .'td iy other
states, or spent, how by- r-sK1ute of
otner parti, l, if . v.ar:v v , t,)o
come to visit the I' air. iiy adver
tising our resources, the Fair will
bring to this state thousands of
Eastern people who will in vest their
money in Oregon property and
build up Oregon enterprises. The
appropriations for the portage rail
way and the right of way for the
Celilo Canal will cut down the
freight bill of Eastern Oregon ship
pers and will be the means of in
ducing the Federal Government to
spend some $4,000,000 constructing
the canal. Though the state re
ceives no financial benefit from the
Indian War veterans' appropria
tion, nearly all the money will be
put into circulation here in Oregon,
and a moral obligation of the state
will be fulfilled.
Property-owners always view
with critical eye every increase in
taxes. It is well that they should,
and that they should, know whence
the revenue comes and whither it
goes. The estimate made by the
.state officers gives in detail the
items of expense, and the source of
revenue other than that produced
by direct taxes. Oregon taxpayers
have before them the information
upon which they can exercise dis
cerning judgment, and they will
thus form their opinions of the ex
penditures authorized by the Leg
islature in its last regular and spe
cial sessions. It is quite certain
they will learn with approval that
the corporation tax law has reduced
the property tax by about SlOO.OOO
a year, and that the insurance tax
has produced a revenue of over
$40,000. Progressive businessmen
are in the habit of making heavy
investments in advertising, and
when viewed only in that light the
Lewis and Clark appropriation is
considered a wise expenditure of
money. The opening of the Co
lumbia River by the removal of
obstacles between 1 he Dalles and
Celilo is as judicious an act as the
improvement of a road over which
a farmer hauls his crop to market.
The taxpayers of Oregon were never
in better condition financially to
undertake the enterprises that have
swelled the tax levy of 1904, and
few complaints will be heard, con
cerning the tax burden. Incident
ally it may be remarked that
Multnomah County pays 31 per
cent, or nearly one-third of the
state tax. Oregonian.

BURIED AT DALLAS
Remains of Robert Hayes Laid to Rest
in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery.
The remains of Robert Hayes
who died of apoplexy in Los An
geles, Cal., December 25, arrived in
Dallas last rriday evening, and
were laid to rest in the Odd Fel
lows' cemetery Saturday afternoon
Ihe lunerai services were held in
the M. E. Church, and were largely
attended by the business men of
the city and "friends of the family.
An impressive sermon was preached
by Rev. A. A. Winter, pastor of the
United llivangelical Church, and
beautiful music was rendered by
the choir.
Mr. Hayes, mention of whose
death was made in these columns
last week, had been living in Ev
erett, Wash., for the last two years,
and had been enjoying the very
best of health up to the moment of
his death. He left Everett with a
party of friends for a pleasure trip
to Southern California, and arrived
in Los Angeles on Christmas Day.
Alter securing rooms at a hotel, the
party started out to the race track
to witness the afternoon races.
1'hey boarded a street car and had
gone only a short distance,
when Mr. Hayes, who had been
laughing and chatting with his
companions, suddenly pitched for
ward in his seat and died almost
instantly. The body was removed
to an undertaking parlor and the
coroner was summoned. Alter
making an examination of the
body, the officer found thtt death
had been caused by cerebral apo
plexy. The old gentleman's rela
tives in Everett and Dallas were at
once notified of his death, and the
body was prepared for shipment to
Dallas.
Robert Hayes was born in Albert
county, New Brunswick, March 14,
18d9. , lie moved to Wisconsin in
1880, and came to Dallas, Oregon,
in loay. lie married nwss Mary
E. Cairnes in Wisconsin, January
26, 1863. Eleven children were
born to Mr. and Mrs. Hayes, five of
whom are living. The tragic death
of their son, Robert Hayes, Jr., who
was drowned in the LaCreole river
while in the employ of theThurston
umber Company, is still fresh in
le minds of the people of Dallas
The surviving children are: James
A. Hayes, of Rhinelander, Wis
consin; Samuel Hayes and Mrs
Susie Theraux, of Everett, Wash.
Mrs. Libbie Berg, of Cumberland
Wisconsin, and William Hayes, ol

" When

When mothers are worried
because the children do not
gain strength and flesh we
say give them Scott's Emul
sion.
It is like the penny in the
milk because it works and
because .there is something:
astonishing about it.
Scott's Emulsion is simply
a milk of pure cod liver oil
with some hypophosphites
especially prepared for delicate
stomachs.
Children take to it naturally
because they like the taste
and the remedy takes just' as
naturally to the children be
cause it is so perfectly adapted
to their wants.
For all weak and pale and

is the most satisfactory treatment.

A SUCCESSFUL TRIP
Dallas Team Returns Victorious From
Its Northern Tour.
The Dallas College basket-ball team
arrived home Friday night, after a
successful trip through the North
west. The team played Ave games
while away, winning three and mak
ing a percentage of 600. The boys
played five of the best teams on the
Coast. It was not the object of the
manager in arranging these games
to pick teams that would be easy meat
for the strong aggregation from
Dallas, but to select teams whose de
feat would mean something.
The first game was played in Port
land against the "All-Stars," the
champions of the Coast. This was
the fastest and finest exhibition of
basket ball ever given in Portland.
The superior team work of the Dallas
team won the victory. The Individual
work was also great. To name the
stars of the Dallas team would mean
to name every man on the team. The
Portland team is made up of men who
have had years of experience and
know the game from A to Z. The final
score was 16 to 10 in favor of Dallas.
The next game was with the Mult
nomah Athletic Club. The score was
again in favor of the college boys.
The game was Dallas' from the first,
and the way the boys threw goals
wasn't 9low." Ford was out of the
game here, and Gates went in and
played great ball. The final score was
32 to S in favor of Dallas.
On Tuesday morning, December 29,
the boys lined up against the sturdy
defenders of Centralia High School.
The Centralia boys did not get a look
in, at the game from the time the
whistle blew until the finish of the
game. The playing of Gates and
Shaw in this game was good to see.
Hoffman, Teats and Wilson played
like veterans, and at no time did their
opponents bother them. The final
score was 31 to 9.
The fourth game was with the Y. M.
C. A. team of Tacoma. Here the boys
met their first defeat. The lloor at
this place was a puzzler to tho Dallas
players, there being a row of 12-inch
posts down the middle of the room,
and tho goals being at one side of the
court instead of in the center. These
obstructions were a great handicap to
fast work, and kept the visiting team
guessing, -i no college lioys also claim
that the Tacoma umpire gave them
decidodly the worst of it, but say that
the only soreness they feel over the
game is the soreness caused by bruises
received. The score was 22 to 17 In
favor of Tacoma.
The fifth and last game was with
tho Seattle Y. M. C. A. This team
held the Coast championship four
years, from 1899 to 1902, Irclusive
This is a matter of no surprise, for
Seattle has played all its close games
on tho home floor, which is good for
20 points against any team except
Dallas. The Dallas boys made the
largest score that has ever been made
by a visiting team in Seattle, and, had
they not been crippled as they were,
would have won the game on that
floor. The contest was fast and free
from wrangling. The final score was
21 to 15.
The Dulla9 College team justly
claims the championshipof the Pacific
Coast, as the games playoU in Taeoma
and Seattle cannot be considered In a
contest for the championship honors,
and it was so understood between the
competing teams before the games
were played. The rules of basket
ball require that games to decide the
championship must be played on a
floor free from obstructions and of
regulation size. Xhe floors in the
Sound cities are not of this class;
neither is the court in the Dallas
College gymnasium, which is much
smaller than the regulation size
uonsequentiy, tne last two games
played last week do not count in the
championship class any more than do
the games played on the present court
In Dallas.
But that Dallas has tho strongest
team on the Coast, there can bo no
doubt. The boys have won the
championship, fairly and squarely,
and are ready to defend it. Take the
men of the team and see if you can
pick stronger ones: Poling, at center,
has yet to meet his superior he has
never failed to throw goals over any
man he has gone against ; Wilson and
Teats are as strong a pair of forwards
as ever threw for a basket, being
strong at offensive and defensive work ;
as guards, we have Ford and Hoff
man, who play their positions perfect
ly, and who have held such men as
Maekie, Durand, Myer and Blaker
down to no goals. These five men are
backed up by Gates, Shaw andLauner
three men as fast as tho fastest, and
who would strengthen any team.
The game with McMinnville on Fri
day night wa3 called off by McMinn
ville College on account of a recital
held at that place. They will play in
Dallas, January 16, and from that
date until the first of March the college
boys will play games with the best
