books, others carrying a tablet and
pencil, while others carried nothing.
Some with forlorn looks, others with

The transportation and excursion
committee of the Albany Commer
cial club will meet tonight with the
executive board in the parlors of the
club, following the regular weekly ses
sion, for the purpose ot discussing
plans for the proposed excursion to
the Linn county fair at Scio Septem
ber 26, as launched at a previous meet
ing of the club.
At that time the matter was placed
in the hands of the excursion com
mittee and the conference tonight is
expected to determine all of the de
tails of the trip.
The excursion was first, planned for
Thursday, September 25 but owing to
meets here on that day, the date of the
the Knights Templar conclave which
proposed excursion was postponed a
day later.
It is the plan on this date to have
as many local people join a special
excursion to the Scio fair. This date
has been set aside by the fair associa
tion as "Albany Day" and a special
program has been arranged. It is
probable that a special train vill be
run to Munkers. From there special
conveyances will be provided, for .the
Albanyites to the fair.
The personelle of the excursions
committee is as follows: E. H. Mc
Cune, William Bain. G. W. Tavlor.
Fred Dawson. Joseph H. fRallston,
William M. Eagles, and W. A. Barrett.

The Arrest Occurred Yesterday
Afternoon in Tool House of
Charged with criminal assault upon
the person of Adelaide Ruiter, a mi
nor female, Frank Albrecht was ar
rested yesterday afternoon by Con
stable John Catlin upon complaint of
the girl's father, H. J. Ruiter. Taken
before Justice of the Peace L. L.
Swan this morning. Albrecht waived
examination and was bound over for
the action of the grand jury under
bonds of $3000.
The arrest occurred yesterday af
ternoon shortly after 5 o'clock in a
tool house of the Southern Pacific
located just south of the city limits
where the railroad crosses the water
According to the story told the of
ficers by Ruiter, father of the girl,
who resides in the south end, he and
his wife returned home yesterday af
ternoon from a buggy ride, to find
their home in turmoil and several em
pty beer bottles strewir about the
room. He said that when they left
the daughter was at home alone. Find
ing the home in this condition he im
mediately sought the girl when he
was told by a neighbor that, she had
gone walking up the railroad track
with a man. Ruiter ' then notified
Constable John Catlin who in com
pany with his step son John H. Dud
bridge, proceeded to the scene.
..Arriving at. the Ruiter home, they
were joined by the father of the girt
and proceeded up the railroad track.
Coming to the tool house, ami notic
ing the door ajar, Catlin and the two
men opened it and walked in. There
they found Albrecht and Adelaide in
a compromising position. A bottle
of beer was beside them.
The girl was completely exhausted
and apparently lying in a faint when
the men entered. She was assisted to
her feet but could hardly stand under
the influence of liquor. Assisted
home by her father, it is claimed it
was sometime before she regained
her senses and vowed she did not
know what had happened. Today she
is reported as fairly recovered.
Albrecht was brought, to town and
placed in the county jail. Following
his appearance before Judge Swan
this morning, Albrecht was returned
to the county jail.
