An Honest Revision.
From the date on which the
first tariff law was signed by an
American president, the tariff
question lias been the bone of
contention between two great po
litical parties. It has made and
tin-made statesmen, created and
disorganized political parlies. On
one hand it touched the pockets
of the tariff-robbing trusts and on
the other, the pockets of the
American consumer.
When the tariff was first pro
posed, it was suggested merely as
a means of raising revenue for the
maintenance of the federal gov
ernment. The idea of protecting
so-called "infant industries" did
not enter the minds of the earlier
patriots. That came later and
when once the "infants" obtained
a laste of the tariff bottle, from
that time on they agreed to re
main infants in the eyes of the
public until such time as the peo
ple tore from their faces the mask
of dishonesty and took from litem
the protection which served only
to fallen their purse and gratify
their greed for excessive profits.
1' resident Roosevelt side
stepped the tariff and by so doing
won for himself (he reputation of
being (he best politician who ever
occupied a scat in the white
I'ttblic opinion would not per
mil President Taft to follow the
example of his predecessor in of
fice, lie lacked the courage to
insist upon an honest revision and
permitted Aldrich to draft a law
which pleased only the benefic
iaries of the system. In his
speeches President Taft revised
the tariff downward and in the
tariff law as finally passed and
signed by the president, the tariff
was revised upward.
It was the refusal of Roosevelt
and Taft to give the people some
relief from the excessive tariff
duties that swept into office a
Democratic administration in
The new president has done his
share in bringing about an hon
est revision of the tariff and the
lower house of congress has per
formed its duty through the pas
sage of the Underwood bill. The
issue is now squarely up to the
senate. There can be no com
promise. It is the forces of greed
against the forces of common
justice, and the senate of the
United States is on trial. The
public mind is in no mood for
trifling. The people know what
they want anil tin v want mi tone
Inst in securing the passage of a !
iav which will atlnril permanent
relief from excessive prices anil
dishonest profits.

Dennis and Frank Are Victims
of Unique Joke Played on
Them by Harry Wilkins.
"Merrill and Tracy" have again
sprung into the limelight but no fear
should be entertained for this time
they are a harmless pair and besides
they have already been caught. Har
ry Wilkins, of the Owl drug store,
made the catch with his famous
camera and the picture, which has at
tracted considerable attention, is on
display in the window of the drug
store. The picture is entitled: "Fu
gitives; reward if caught," and the
principles of the photograph are nolle
other than Dennis Merrill and Frank
Tracy as they were snapped in Dick
Churchill's automobile while on a re
cent gunning trip. The rough outing
costume worn by the principles lend
natural color to the theory borne out
in the photograph.

Party of Pathfinders from the'
College City Were in Albany
This Morning.
Plans Are Underway Here to
Afford Visitors Royal Re
ception Upon Arrival.
The pathfindiug delegation for the
Corvallis automobile excursion ar
rived m the city this morning shortly
before noon by automobile, lunched
here and were received afterwards at
the Commercial club, later departing
by way of the west side. The trip to
this city was made by way of the east
side, through Halsey, Shcdds and Pe
oria and other way points and the
delegates report that they were roy
ally and enthusiastically received all
along the route.
The party is composed of the fol
lowing prominent business men and
members of the Corvallis Commer
cial club: J. M. Prather, R. M. John
ston, G. E. Cooper, W. M. Ball, C. A.
Murphy, who is secretary of the Com
mercial club.
The purpose of the big automobile
excursion is to afford Corvallis peo
ple the opportunity of visiting the
outlying districts of Linn and Benton
counties and to exchange greetings
with the citizens of the different com
munities that a closer friendship and
a stronger universal spirit may be
mnexed between the districts.
One week from today the big ex
cursion will leave Corvallis by the
route as mapped out on the east side
of the river and according to plans it
will arrive here by noon. Plans are
under way here by members of the
local commercial club to give the Cor
vallis excursionists a royal reception
after which they will depart for Cor
vallis by way of the route mapped out
on the west side. Although the mem
gers of the delegation were not pre
pared to state definitely how many au
tomobiles will participate in the ex
cursion, it was estimated that between
25 to 30 automobile londs from Cor
vallis will enjoy the trip.
The intinerary of the trip will in
clude stops at all of the places nloiiLr
the routes mapped out. The details
of the trip will be arranged so that
trie excursionists can leave Corvallis

16 Miles This Morning With

Jrorty-nine years ago today occur

before a vast multitude of early resi
dents of t lii s section, according to a
statement made this morning by
Newton Crabtree, an old pioneer of
Linn county who has reached the
ripe old age of 70, and who resides
six miles cast of Crabtree. On this
occasion, stated Mr. Crabtree, who
appears hale and. vigorous at. Ins ex
treme age, he made his first trip to
Albany, accompanied bv his father
and a twin brother. He said that as
near as lie could recollect the hang
ing took place on Fifth avenue in the
neighborhood of Calapooia street but
his rcmemberance appeared to be
very vainic relative to the incidents
attendant to the case. The hanging
was conducted by the state under a
law which required that such punish
ment should take place in the terri
tory in which the crime was commit
ted. Aside from the above incident of
the hanging a peculiar incident hap
pened to Mr. Crabtree this mornimr.

Crabtree this morning, who arrived
here at 9 o'clock dusty and slightly
weary after his long journey but ap

wholesome exercise. An erand of

Arthur Wagner, Arrested Late
Yesterday Near Sandridge
by Sheriff Bodii-e.
Prisoner Is Confined in County
Jail; Refused to Talk Con
cerning His Actions.
Charged with assault with intent to
rape, upon the person of a 12-year-old
girl, Arthur Wagner, aged 17, is be
ing held in the county jail by Sheriff
liodine awaiting trial in Justice
Swan's court.
Wagner, who resides on a farm
near I'lainview with his parents, was
taken into custody early yesterday
evening near Sandridge by Sheriff
liodine, who proceeded to the scene
upon telephonic communication of
residents of that section, and brought
to Albany last night where he was
confined in the county jail.
According to reports relative to the
alleged crime, it appears that the
young girl, wdiose name is withheld,
was returning from school when she
yas accosted by the lad, who inquired
if she was going home. She replied
that she was, whereupon Wagner
proceeded to accompany her. At a
lonely spot in the road, according to
the report of a resident, he heard the
girl scream. He rushed out to the
road to investigate the cause, and ar
rived there just in time to see Wag
ner, who was leading a bicycle, mount
the wheel and dash up the road.
An effort was made to follow the
mgitivc with a team, but he had gain
ed considerable start and the pursuer
stopped ill at a farm house to tele
plume to the next place for someone
to intercept him. Successful connec
tions were not made ami ey,.rr,i ro;
dents of the neighborhood proceeded
"i o;c ioau wnii me intention ot tak
ing up the chase.
Upon arriving at a bend of the road
the lad had disappeared and upon
phoning to a farm house farther up
the road it developed that no one
was seen passing tliere on a bicycle.
A search was then made in a thicket
skirting the road, the searchers be
lieving the lad had taken refuge
there. After conducting a protracted
search, Wagner was discovered go
ing back up the road towards Plain
yieiv. A hasty phone call to a nearby
farmhouse resulted in his interception
by a farmer. In the meantime the
sheriff had been called.
Before he was taken into custody by
Sheriff liodine, an ct'ort was made to
have him go before the girl and her
father, to deny or affirm his rela
tions, but he refused. When asked
why she screamed he refused to an
swer. The case will probably be tried
late this afternoon.
Wagner was arraigned before Jus
tice Swan shortly after 1 o'clock,
waived examination and was bound
over until the next teim of the grand
jury under bonds of $1000, which
were not furnished. The prisoner
was remanded back to the county
Albany Retail Merchants Will
Send Representative Before
That the discussions relative to
home patronage and the mail order
business during the grange conven
tion has awakened considerable inter
est, has been indicated in many ways
To show that some good might re
sult locally from the discussions and
that the grangers have taken notice
of the circumstance, the following
quotation from a letter from W. W.
Poland, of Shedd, to Pres. F. J. Fiedl
er ot the Albany Retail Merchants
may be of interest: "During the con
vention I talked with you concerning
the farmers' patronage of the mail
order houses and it was suggested
that if an opportunity was offered
you might send a speaker before the
Linn county council to present the
home merchants' side of this impor
tant question. Arrangements will be
made to give you a hearing in open
session at the next meeting at
Mrownsville. Saturday. June 7.
I think if our trade "relations
could be presented by some home
merchant it would result in good for
all concerned."
Mr. Fletcher' stated this morning
that a representative will be appoint
ed to go 'before the grange council
at the iwxt meeting of the merchants'
T. II. Ilaggerty. the lawyer, who
recently opened an office at this citv.
this mornim: left for Marsllfield.
where he will locate, the place offer
ing a better opportunity for a young
trail in the business.
