insures a cleanly appearance about
the camp.
The kitchen and mess tent are al
so required to be kept in a sanitary
condition. The tables in the mess
tent are washed after every meal, ev
ery bit of rubbish is picked up, and
the pots and pans in the kitchen are
kept shining all the time. The Port

each day ns well as the home papers
and the latter are always awaited
eagerly by the bunch.
The Pacific Ocean being but a
short distance away, the camp is able
to secure plenty of clams and crabs
The men all continue to be in good
health and none of the Albany com

Two large flags which adorned the
flagstaff of the Chautauqua auditorium
during the session of 1911, have since
been missing. These arc both new
flags 8x12 feet in size and quite valu
able. They are doubtless reposing in the
keeping of someone who was intrust
ed with their care, but when the com
mittee sought them in preparing for
the 1912 session, it could not be re
members in whose care the flags
had been placed.
Can anone give light upon this sub
ject? If so report to the Commercial
club or postoffice.

Remarkable Transplanting of j
Parts of Limbs Taken from
Dead Children.
Watcrbury, Conn., Aug. 23. The
identity of the two-year-old boy on
whom the amazing operation of bone
transplantation tor the permanent cur
ing of club feet was successfully per
formed by Dr. Frederick H. Albee, a
young surgeon of the Post-Graduale
Hospital of New York, became known
today when small Frederick Scorpion
returned to his home. The child was
shown delightedly to relatives and
friends by his parents last night. The
little fellow displayed two perfectly
formed instead of twisted feet. With
out prompting he scrambled into an
upright position and tried to walk.
The World, last Sunday, told in de
tail of the donreful operation; of how
the young surgeon had taken bones
from the bodies of two healthy chil
dren who had died suddenly by stran
gulation, kept them in cold storage;
reshaped them to lit the bones which
were deficient in the naturally crip
pled feet of the little boy, inserted
these bones, kept the tiny feet in plas
ter casts for a week and then knock
ed the plaster off and revealed to the
admiration of other surgeons and the
joy of the child's parents the little
fellow's feet, reshaped to the perfect
ly normal.
It appears that the Scorpion family
have a double cause of gratitude for
the young surgeon's skill, for not only
was their baby son, Freddie, born
with deformed feet, but also was their
seven-year-old son. Anthony Albert.
The surgeon's workin this case was
equally notable and successful. In
this case it had been necessary to
break, shorten and practically reset
the bones of both the lad's limbs to

Madison, Wis., Aug. 23. Demand
ing that the progressive presidential
nominee "make a clean breast of cam
paign contributions," Senator Robert
M. I. a Follette, through his magazine,
I. a Follettc's Weekly, out today,
charges that Colonel Roosevelt is
spending hundreds of thousands of
dollars contributedJy trusts, to bring
about his election In November.
"The public knows," the editorial
says, "that Roosevelt spent an enor
mous sum in his pre-convention cam
paign. In some of the states Olrro
tor instance, it is conservatively es
timated that $300,000 was expended to
elect Roosevelt delegates.
"It is generally believed that this
money was largely the unlawful spoils
of the trusts which thrived at thc ex
pense of the people during Roosevelt's
Officers McChmg and Webb last
night made a raid on the place said
to be conducted by Henrk Kirsch at
the corner of Ninth and Jefferson
3treets. No fme was in the place at

Dispute Between Property Own
ers and Oregon Power Co.
Goes to Court.
Owners of Property in Paving
District Will Be Affected by
Determination of Suit.
Claiming that the Oregon Power
Company has not complied with the
franchise which provides that all wa
ter mains are to be placed two feet
below the established grade and that
the defendant company wrongfully
refused to connect the plaintiff with
the water main at the corner of
Fourth and Jackson streets, M. O,
Logston today filed a complaint which
when passed upon by the court, will
settle a question which has lor a long
time been a matter of dispute between
the property owners in the paving dis
trict and the Oregon Power Company.
1 he title ot the ease is Al. . Logs-
ton and Claude Logston vs. the Ore
gon Power company, and in their
complaint the plaintiffs make the fol
lowing allegations:
That some live years ago the plain
tiffs connected their premises in block
23. at the corner of Fourth and Jack
son streets, with the water system tip
crated by the defendant company and
since said date have paid all tolls ex
acted by the company; that during the
month of June the plaintiffs paid the
sum of $3.00 for the summer's irri
gation and one month's rent in ad
vance for water for domestic purpos
es; that during the mouth of July the
defendant wrongfully severed the con
nection of the plaintiffs' pipe with said
main and refused and still refuses to
connect the same.
The plaintiffs ask for a writ of
mandamus to compel the defendant
company to connect I he pipes and fur
nish the water. Weatheriord &
Weather ford are representing the
plaintiffs in the suit.
It is understood that the Oregon
Power company en tends that it is
not obliged to pay for the connection
because of the order of the city coun
cil which compels them to lower their
mains preparatory lor the paving.
The outcome of thc case will be
watched with interest by the people
of Albany who reside in the paving
district. A large number of citizens
have already made thc connection
with the water mains at their own
expense, but some of them arc said
to be waiting the outcome of thc test
case which was filed today.
One thousand new refrigerator cars,
equipped with collansible tanks with
a capacity of 1 1,000 pounds of ice,
will soon be delivered to thc Pacific
Fruit Express Company a subsidiary
of the Southern Pacific company. The
collapsible tanks will enable the coin
pa. iy to use the cars for ordinary
freight during the periods that the
cars are not required for perishables.
The first installment of these new
cars will be started westward within
another month and they will immedi
atly go into service.

Claim that He Is Guilty of
Technical Violation of the
Corrupt Practice Act.
B. Paget and O. A. Stillmau,
prohibition candidates for United
States senator and congressman, re
spectively, drew another large crowd
when they held their second street
meeting in Albany last night. Messrs.
Paget and Stillmau returned to Al
bany last night after an automobile
trip lasting two days during which
they spoke in 12 towns in the county
in support of their candidacy. At ait
of the places there has been a disposi
tion on the part of the people to give
them a respectful hearing.
At last night's meeting Mr. Paget
again referred to the republican sen
atorial candidate's, Mr. Selling's, in
decision as to whether he would line
up with Taft or Roosevelt. Mr. Pag
et said he considered that any man
who required six weeks in which to

port was hardly tilted for the office
of United States senator. Mr. Paget
alo referred to the statement of Sell
ing's campaign expenses, which shows
that $10,000 was contributed by vari
ous friends, which shows a technical
violation of the corrupt practices act.

No Truth in Rumor to Effect that
Road Has Been Leased by
N. P. Says President.
Monthly Payroll is $10,000
Other Interesting Data Given
Out by Official.
A representative of this paper called
upon J. K. Weathcrford, president of
the Corvallis & Eastern Railroad com- ,
pany, for such information as might
be of interest to the public, and to as
certain what the company expected
to dy by way of increasing its busi
ness in the future, and incidentally to
learn if there was any truth in the
published rumor to the effect that this
line had been leased to the Northern
Pacific railroad.
We were informed lhat so far as the
lease is concerned that it was simply
an idle rumor without foundation.
We also learned that during the last
year, the business of the road has in
creased quite materially, and the com
pany, for the purpose of keeping up
with the advance that has been made
i:; the country, is continually improv
ing its road. During the past year it
has increased its working force about
J5 per cent, and it will probably in
crease more than that during the com
ing year. It has added much new ma
chinery to its shops, and employed
more men than at any time m the
past. At the present time there are
more than 50 mechanics actually en
gaged in the repair and construction
of cars ami other railroad equipment
at its Albany shop. The probabilities
are that during the coming year the
shops themselves will have to be in
creased in dimensions, and the num
ber of mechanics increased from 25
to 50 per cent.
The company is now employing 125
men who are actually residents, and
most of them heads of families, in the
city of Albany. 1 his does not include
the various employees along the line
in Benton, Lincoln ami Marion coun
ties, but those who reside in the city
of Albany.
There is actually paid to these men
in the neighborhood of ten thousand
dollars per month, and as the business
increases it will be necessary to in
crease this force from time to time.
There is probably no other single es
tablishment having as large a payroll
as i his company within the city of Al
bany. The business of the road centers in
Albany, and I he country it traverses is
supplied from Albany merchants.
The road extends for about sixfy
miles east of Albany, and after it
leaves the town of Lyons it depends
entirely upon the products of the for
est for its business. This is being
developed more ami more each year,
and the prospects for further devel
opment in the manufacture of lumber
are extremely Mattering.
On the western portion of the road,
the business has been gradually in
creasing along jill of the lines, but one
of the most promising features is the
shipment of saw-logs from thc coast
mountains to the sawmills of Albany.
It is possible that this trade could he
increased to one of great importance
to the city. If this proves profitable,
the road will extend into the forests
tributary to it on the west end, and
thereby developing the country as
well as building up this city ami in
creasing its industries.
It is generally understood that thc
line will be extended from its west
ern terminus, Yaquina, to Newport,
with branch lines extending into thc
timber in the Mary's Peak district,
and possibly into the Siletz country.
The records of the company show
that more people arc coming to Al
bany fiver this route than at any time
heretofore, bringing the business of
the surrounding country to our city.
The probabilities are that thc road
will be electrified between Corvallis
and Albany and the line extended
from some place near Albany to a
connection with the west side road at
a point not far from Wells or Stiver
The steamer Willamina, load
ed with engines and construc
tion equipment for the Eugene
& Coos Bay Railroad, was beach
ed at a point near Florence early
yesterday morning while at
tempting to make the harbor.
Full particulars of thc accident
could not be learned but it is
said to be due to a heavy fog
which enveloped the coast line
near Florence yesterday.
Kenneth McLennon was numbered
among the Albany residents who
spent Sunday at Newport,
Miss Dti Bois of San Francisco has
arrived in the city to take charge oi
thc trimming in the millinery depart
ment at S. E.. .Young & Son's. Miss
Du Bois was trimmer in one of the
largest stores al San Francisco for
three years. From there she went to
Portland where she took charge of
one of the trimming departments at
Lipman and Wolf's. Young's store
is certainly to be congratulated on se
curing the services of such a high
clans trimmer.
