Depend Much A Game Will
Be Played Here Sunday.
Tomorrow the Albany Athletics
will go to Salem where they will cross
bats with the Salem Senators in the
third game of the championship ser
ies and despite the fact that they have
lost the first two games they are de
termined to bring home the bacon
If they don't then Salem will be
awarded the title of champions of the
Willamette Valley. The lineup for
Albany tomorrow will be practically
the same as usual with the exception
of Carson and Lyle Bigbee. The
former went to Medford on the early
train this morning where tomorrow
he will cover third base for Medford
in their game with Weed, California.
Lyle is at Newport resuscitating from
the strenuous duties of a baggage
smasher at which work he is em
ployed during the week.
Marigold, a 'fast infielder of Port
land, will probably play third for Al
bany tomorrow. The Athletics have
a strong pitching staff for tomorrow's
contest upon whom they will depend
to win the game, including Patterson,
Hughes, and Jack Berry, while Sa
lem will use the great and only Baker.
"Chimmie" Richardson of Portland
who umpired the game here last Sun
day so satisfactorily, will officiate
again at Salem. The "Athletics" and
a large crowd of fans will leave Al
bany tomorrow morning for Salem.
The Capital City bunch predict one
o f the largest crowds at the game to
morrow in the history of baseball in
Salem and have had tickets placed in
several of the down-town stores
where they can be secured. The re
sult of tomorrow's game will be
awaited with interest by local fans
for it will decide whether Salem will
be the champions or whether Albany
will get another whack at it.
While the "Athletics" are away
there will be a game on the local dia
mond between North Albany and Riv

The fire was discovered as it was

Now Says It Was Only Intended
As Joke and Mother Asks
Court for Annulment.
San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 2. The
old proverb, "Marry in haste, repent
at leisure," was reversed in the case
of Eva De Boise, 17 years old, 92
Henry street.
Miss De Boise was married to
Mitchell Saxe, 22 years "old, last Sat
urday as the result of a joke. Yester
day her mother, Mrs. Amelia A. De"
Boise, at the instigation of the daugh
ter, riled in the superior court a pe
tition .for annulment.
Miss De Boise had been introduced
to Saxe the previous Tuesday. Her
friend Gertrude Sauter, 3314 Twenty
second street, was engaged to Robert
Saxe, a brother of Mitchell.
On Tuesday evening Robert Saxe
and Miss Sauter held a rehearsal of
their marriage at the girl's home.
Miss De Boise and Mitchell Saxe
were present. Somebody suggested
that it would be a good joke if they
all got married, and the double wed
ding was arranged.
On Saturday the four secured mar
riage licenses and were married that
evening at St. Mary's Cathedral. At
the license bureau Miss De Boise
gave her age as 18 years.
Following the marriage there was a
wedding supper at the home of a
friend, and then, at the suggestion of
Miss De Boise, they all went to the
home of her mother to tell her the
At first Mrs. De Boise refused to
believe it and considered it a joke.
However, she kept her daughter at
home that night and made an investi
gation the next day. Satisfied that
her daughter was really married, she
told her to go to her husband. But
the girl refused and asked her mother
if she wouldn't take steps to have
the marriage revoked. Mrs. De Boise
asks for the annulment on the ground
that her daughter is a minor and did
not have her consent to the marriage.
Harrisburg, Or., Aug. 2. The Ore
gon Electric reached the center of the
city this afternoon. A large crowd
was out to celebrate the event.
The company is trying to secure ad
ditional property here and as it al
ready has extensive holdings, it is
thought that Harrisburg will be made
one of its principal stations. The
track will reach the bridge across the
Willamette tomorrow.
The property of Pendleton Acad

which will be turned into the endow
ment fund of Albany College. This
increase in the endowment fund will
be noted with pleasure by the friends
of Albany College.
Newport, Or., Aug. 2. Carl liarr.
aged 14, son of T. M. Barr, of Salem,
had a narrow escape from death yes
terday when the roof of a cave in a
sandbank in which he and Charles
MeClcllan, aged 10, of Salem, were
playing, fell in and covered him com
pletely. Young Barr was discolored and un
conscious when he was removed by
some men who heard McCIellan's
cries for help. McClellan was cover
ed up to his neck, but wriggled out.
At present young Barr is recovering
from his experience, and it is believ
ed that no serious results will follow.
The Lady of the Lake films now
being shown at the Empire theater

everybody was highly pleased with

Crack Safe of Cornucopia Mine
But Are Frightened Away by
Employees of Company.
Thousands of Dollars In Gold
Nuggets Are Savedby Plucky
Man and Woman.
Baker, Or., Aug. 2. Masked men
broke into the office of the Under
wood Placer Mines Company, at
Cornucopia, rolled down an embank
ment the sate containing gold nug
gets valued at thousands of dollars, at
1 o'clock this morning and dynamit
ed it.
They were interrupted by Foreman
Charles Camel, of Walla Walla, who
is in charge of the plant, and fired
several shots at him, one of which
slightly wounded him, but he called
help and frightened them away with
out their booty.
Mrs. R. S. Bishop, telephone opera
tor, who yesterday saved Halfway
from a serious fire by calling out the
farmers and townspeople, was appeal
ed to and she rang people out of bed
and urged them to start in search of
the safecrackers.
The enliro Pine Valley was noti
fied by breakfast time and parties
have passed the day in search. A. C.
Stephens, deputy sheriff of Baker
county, in that district, suspected two
men and telephoned to Baker for aid,
but as Sheriff Rand could not covet
the 90 miles to the mine in time to
help, told him to arrest the men
They have not been apprehended yet.
It was so dark that the number of
would-be robbers is not known, bul
it is believed there were four. The
office is unoccupied at night, so they
had no trouble in forcing the door
and removing the safe, which is
small one. They rolled it over an em
bankment in front of the building and
several feet away before attempting
to open it.
The highwaymen fled, one going
toward the town of Cornucopia and
the others toward Pine Valley.
Reuben Smith, one of the Walla
Walla owners of the mine, was in
Baker and started early this morning
for the scene. The description of the
men is so meager that it will make
identification difficult. That the men
selected a time when the safe was
well filled with nuggets and their
method of going about the work
would indicate that they were familiar
with conditions.
The mine managers have notified
owners at Walla Walla and arc at
tempting to get bloodhounds from
that place.
This is thought to be the only
means of tracing the men, as there is
such a chance for them to escape over
the mountains which surround the
mine and Pine Valley.

Valuables Are Recovered In An
Unusual Manner Purse Is
Returned by Stranger.
When Mrs. Fry, an employee of the
Home Restaurant of this city, return
ed to her residence on Ninth and
Walnut streets last night, she discov
ered that her house had been burglar
ized. The thief had entered the house
by means of a pass key and her purse,
containing two valuable rings and
several dollars in change, was miss
ing. -Mrs. Pry informed some friends of
the burglary and was on her way to
make complaint to the police when
she was accosted by a stranger who
asked her if she was acquainted with
Mrs. Pry. Upon being informed that
was her name, the stranger turned ov
er the purse and by way of explana
tion stated that he obtained it from
some little boy.
When seen by the Democrat repre
sentative this afternoon, Mrs. Pry
stated that she had never seen the
man before and is unable to account
for the recovery of her valuables. She
said her card was in the purse.
The body of Joe Albers, with a
piece of drain tile at the end of a
rope about his neck, floated to the
surface of the Willamette river here
today at noon at a point about 100
feet above the Van Buren street ferry,
and was secured by a passing launch
occupied by Court Butcher. The
body was somewhat decomposed, and
evidently had lain in the water sev
eral days. It is nw at the Bovce
undertaking parlors, says the Corval
lis Gazctlc-Tiines.
Albers was past 60 years of age,
was a German Prussian carpenter
without family tics, addicted to strong
drink, and had been in an unusually
bad way in recent weeks, was dis
couraged, and it is believed that he
suicided about Monday night. He
was seen about his usual haunts here
on Monday, hut no one remembers
having seen him after Monday even
ing. Before that, part of the spring,
he had been working on his garden
patch at the George Avery place on
Oak creek. He came to the city on
Monday and then disappeared.
Albers has an uncle, Joe Heckcr,
at Albany, who will come here and
arrange for burial. A brother died at
Philomath about a year ago. Al
bers had been a well known char
acter about Corvallis for thirty years.
He was never married and was one
of the boys about town. He was al
ways peaceable, never offensive, was
a good workman, and was his own
worst enemy. It is sad to contem
plate that lie should have come to
this unfortunate end.

Three Anonymous Letters Are
Received by Men Alleged to
Be In Liquor Business.
Much Speculation as to Writer
of Letters the Local Option
People Blame Liquor Men.
"This is the last warning. Clean
up, lock up, or stay off the streets.
Death. '
This is a copy of an anonymous
letter received late Saturday after
noon by three residents of Albany
who are said to be engaged in the il
licit sale of intoxicating liquor.
While the wording of the letter is
different than that received by Chief
of Police Ellis Daughtry, all three let
ters were written on the same kind
of paper and mailed at the same time
as the Daughtry letter, which leads
to the supposition that they were
written by the same person.
Whether these letters are the work
of some crank, or were written by
men who arc interested in the liquor
business and mailed for the purpose
of creating a sentiment against local
option, thus bringing about a return
to the high license system, is a mat
ter of speculation among citizens of
The liquor men arc inclined to be
lieve that the letters were written by
some radical temperance reformer
while the friends of local option arc
firmly of the opinion that the destruc
tion of the two blind pigs and the let
ters to Chief Daughtry and the blind -piggers
themselves were inspired by
parties who are cither directly or in
directly interested in the liquor busi
ness. The police officers arc working on
the case and if they arc able to se
cure evidence it will go hard with
the men who are responsible for the
anonymous letters.
