One of the largest funerals ever
held in the history of Albany took
place at the Masonic Temple this af
ternoon when the friends of the late
E. W. Langdon assembled to pay their
last respects to the" former banker
and fellow townsman.
A beautiful and touching tribute to
the deceased was paid by Rev. F. H.
Geselb'racht, who briefly reviewed his
lifes work, calling attention to his
many noble characteristics and point
ing out his wonderful capacity for
making friends.
The remains were escorted to the
cemetery by the members of St. Johns
lodge and laid to rest with the full
Masonic honors, a short preliminary
service having first been conducted
at the temple, and the impressive Ma
sonic burial service being, conducted
by Past Grand Master D. P. Mason,
at the cemetery.
The three great lights of Masonry
were carried bv John V. Althouse,
the oldest member of St. Johns lodge
and the following acted as pall bear
ers: O. A. Archibald. Chas. H. Mew
art. Ralph Knotts. J. C. Irvine. Harry
R. Cusick. P. A.-Goodwin, Ralph Mc

The honornrv nail bearers were:
T.. C. Marshall. J. K. Weatherford. D.
P. Mason. C. B. Winn. W. R. Bilvcti,
fudge H. H. Hiewitt. Ralph K. Ohling.
and Charles Wieder.
Once an editor of an Eastern news
paped and later Uie owner of a plant
at Corvallis, Bob Johnson, the "Prune
King" of Oregon, was included among
the prominent Corvallis business men
who attended the Albany Chautauqua
While admitting that he was for
merly engaged in the newspaper game,
Bob insists that he has reformed and
had led a decent and honorable life
ever, since.
When asked by a Democrat repre
sentative in regard to the prospects
for a good crop of prunes, Mr. John
son stated that he has never been
more optimistic over tlie crop condi
tions than he is this year. He. looks
for a bumper crop and is making prep
arations for the largest harvest in the
history of his big orchard.
While riding on the top of a box
car in the railroad yards this morn
ing, Roy Gentry, a brnkeman in the
employ of the Corvallis & Eastern,
in stepping from one car to the other,
slipped and fell to the ground with
terrific impact, landing on a rail. Both
of his ankles were severely sprained.
The unfortunate mun was carried
to the home of his sister, Mrs. A. C.
Baker, 116 Cleveland street, where he
was attended by a physician. This
afternoon he is reported as resting
comfortably. Mr. Gentry's home is
in Marion but while here he resides
at the home of his sister.
There has been some' misunder
standing among local sportsman as
to the summary of the game laws
printed in yesterday's Democrat. The
laws as printed were state laws and
have no bearing upon the proposed
new federal regulation which would
take out of the hands of the state the
regulation of the open and closed
season for wild game. If the federal
law goes into effect the open season
for ducks and otiicr wild fowl will be
from September 15th to December
15th. This would work a great in
justice upon the people of this section
of the state for there is no duck shoot
ing until after Thanksgiving.
R. L. Harrison, a government engi
neer, last Friday began making a sur
vey of the Clackamas river with a
view of determining its power possi
bilities, according to announcement
made by State Engineer Lewis. He
will also during the summer and fall
make similar surveys of the Hood riv
er, the Sandy river, the Santiam river,
the McKenzie river and the Middle
Fork of the Willamette. The govern
ment and state are co-operating in
this work, each bearing halt the ex

Chautauqua park with the visitors.
Many of the Corvallis visitors ar

before the class, the name and food
value of each piece being explained.
At 8 o'clock, before a large audience

on Reservation.
Toledo, Or., July 18. Mose Lane,
one ot the very tew remaining Rogue
River Indians, died at his home on the
Siletz reservation near the agency,
last Sunday after a short illness. Mose
was brought to the reservation with
several hundred others of the Rogua
Rivers 40 years ago, and of this large
number there are now but four or five
left. Mose was 61 years old and had
been a member of the Indian police
force for many years. He was the
"strong man" of the reservation and,
while always a peacemaker, was fear
ed by every would-be bad man on the
reservation. He was of great assis
tance to the authorities and a tower
of strength to the Indian police force.

With splendid programs and ideal
weather, the Albany Chautauqua en
joyed a large attendance yesterday.
It appears fitting that this shoud be'
the case with the waning of the Chau
tauqua season here.
Tomorrow with a gigantic union j
Sunday service in the evening, the
Chautauqua will brought to a close1
after a triumphant and most success
ful season.
Today, in honor of the end of the
Chautauqua and in honor of the dear
est friends on earth, was observed
as "Mothers' Day" and everything was
done for the pleasure of mothers, who
were much in evidence on the giounds
throughout the day.
The leading programs of yesterday
and today and pronounced hy the man
agement to he the best attractions of
the Chautauqua with possibly one ex
ception, was the entertainment pre
sented by Miss Maude Willis, dramat
ic reader and the Maude Stevens Con
cert company.
Vesterday the concert company gave
a prelude to Miss Willis dramatic re
cital and last night Miss Willis pre
sented a prelude to the full concert
by Miss Stevens company. An unpre
cedented attendance greeted these rare
artists at all performances.
Each one in their various entertain
ments made a signal hit. Miss Willis
is not affiliated with the concert com
pany hut a separate attraction in her
self. Her press agent, it would seem.
has lauded her as high as the sky
but to hear her it would seem he didn't
do her justice then. Miss Willis is
perhaps one of the most remarkahle
and talented readers ever to appear
here and she deserves all of the credit
given her.
The Maude Stevens Concert com
pany did more to entertain an audience
last night in their hour's program,
than all of Ihe quartets or Alpine sing
ers appearing durinnr the 'two weeks
of the assembly. Miss Stevens is a
whole show herself and is unquestion
ably an artist of impersonations of
rare ability. Miss Edith Welch, is a
brilliant violinist, and the expression
that glows interestingly in her face,
while she playr-, lend undaunted
charm to the music. Miss Charlotte
Chamberlain, as a pianist and whist
ler, attested by the reception accord
ed her last night.
Tonight Miss Willis will make her
last appearance. The concert com
pany will give a prelude to this en
tertainment commencing at 7:30
This evening's program virtually
clones the Chautauqua from a stand
point of enraged attractions and it is
expected that the auditorium will be
I filtod.
Officers of the association to whom
much credit is due for the success of
the assembly are: President, Dr. M,
