"""The Corvallls-Tlmea tcHe-af the
live times being at the bay: A choio
bit of scandal is going the rounds at
Newport, and stage vliiswrs and
tiptoe communication are J Jit now in
the air. Some of the real good people
in fact are shocked. The event hap
pened a week ago last Saturday night,
when a party of ladies and a gentle
men took possession of a popular hotel
parlor. The blinds were pulled down,
and the gentlemen, well under the
influence of tarantula juice, to the
piano accompaniment of one of the
ladles, entertained their small audience
with the muscle dance and other high
kicking evictions. The orgies came
to a sudden termination when one of
the gentlemen, frenzied with wine
and music thoroughly and scientifi
cally demolished a lot of furniture and
glassware, The party haaily meant to
do anything harmful, but they have
set many a tongue to wagging-
The Willamette Valley.
The Steamer Willamette Valley was
sold by a deputy marshal at San
Francisco Thursday for $43,225. John
Ii. Howard, a San Francisco coal deal
er was the purchaser and the dispatches
relate that she is to be thoroughly
overhauled and put In the coat trade.
The claims In the United States court,
on which she wassold, only aggregat
ed $13,000 and It Is supposed they
have been joined with claims in the
in the state courts aggregated about
the amount at which she was in, with
the Searle and Dean claim of some
thing like $13,000 among them. It is
understood that D. R. Vaughn's claim
ot (8,000 failed to stick. The Wil
lamette Valley first entered the Ya
quina and preceding the Eastern
Oregon by one year each and was one
of the best adapted vescels that trade
that ever entered the harbor.
Corn in Oregon.
McMinnville Reporter says the
Oregonlan and Capital Journal are
booming the cultivation of corn as a
substitute for wheat in Oregon farming.
There are doubtless localities where
corn would make a fairly geol crop one
year with another, especially if pains
were taken to grow the early matur
ing varieties. But here in the valley
generally speaking, the nights are to
cool during the months of May aud
June to give the plant a vigorous aud
healthy start This is only newspaper
opinion, however. We have noticed
some small fields growing In Yamhill
county the present season while trav
eling about, and we should be gratified
to have some ot the piactical farmers
who have been experimenting with
the orop call In and knock this news
paper opinion of ours into a cocked
bat. We learned several years ago to
respect the opinion of practical farmers
in preference to opinions formulated
in the editorial sanctum, when it

A Lawyer's Experience In Jefferson.
A civil case was being tried at
Jefferson a few days ago, In which A.
F. Gooch, of that place, was being
sued for recovery of money. Mr. H.
C. Watson, of this city, was attorney
for the plautifi. Duiing the trial the
defendant, Gooch, Interrupted the
proceedings and said be woulf "go
through" Mr, Watseu and began an
assuleupon him. The latter picked
up a hammer aud knocked his
assailant down, aud afterwards threw
away the hammer and gave him a
genteel trashing. A warrant waa
Issued and Mr. WaUon waived ex
amination and furnished $100 bonds
for bis appearance. He is a well
knowu and gentlemanly attorney,
and no one will believe that he would
resort to force unless self-defense or
unless the other fellow deserved a

-The Marshlleld & Peninsula R. B.
has been Incorporated in Portland with
a capital of $100,000. The promoters of
the scheme are Capt. T. W. Symonds
the U. 8. engineer, Lee Hoffman,
well-known conductor, aud Sanderson
Reed, an attorney. The purpose Is to.
build a railroad and telegraph Hue
from the western terminus of the Coos
Bay, Roseburg & Eastern railroad in a
northerly direction to North Bend and
Coos Bay. Work will be commenced
as soon as right ol way can be secured
through Marshfield. Capt. Symonds
s; "Our idea is to build u sort of
belt line from Marshfield around the
outer edge of the peninsula, so as to
enable certain new industries to be
established there. These Industries
cannot be established Just now because
there is no way to bring in the neces
sary materials. The materials oau be
obtained from along the line of the
Coos Bay, Roseburg A Eastern railroad
which terminates at Marshfield. Just
now we contemplate building about
four miles of track, but may build more
at a later date. Eventually we hope
to see the C. B., R. 4 E. road built Into
Roseburg, a distance of 00 miles from
its present terminus at Coquille. The
C. B., R. & E. road, which is but 36
miles in length, always has been a pay
ing property, and three steamers ply
between Marshfield and San Francisco
the year round." Roseburg Review.
The Drummer Wasn't In it.
Lebanon society has the laugh on a
certain traveling man who was former
ly In the employ of the Standard Sew
ing Machine Company, but at present
is traveling for the Oregon Hedge
Company. This traveling man, by
the way, Is married, but he probably
thought a "catch" in Lebanon would
be the proper tiling, and undoubtedly
the pleosautest way to spend a dull
evening. During the evening he met
two of Lebanon's most respectable and
accomplished ladles, and straightway
sought to "catch on." He extended
them an invitation to Alex. Davis' ice
cream parlors, which they accepted.
After partaking of ice cream, and, in
fact, a variety of delicacies, and having
a general good time, all at Mr. Drum
mer's expense, the ladies arose to go,
when the traveler remarked that it
was a very pleasant evening and
would they not enjoy a little walk, but
one of the ladies had an errand at the
meat market and the other concluded
to accompany her. The drummer saw
he bad been played for a sucker and
disappeared from public gaze. The
ladies were seen a few minutes later,
on their way home, aud were evident
ly enjoying the joke immensely, seem
ingly saying: "Pretty well done for
Lebanon girls." Alex, says he would
like such customers as that drummer
every day. But the "traveler" trav
Pound Party at Rev, Holman's.
We were agreeably surprised last
Tuesday evening by a party of about
half a hundred people who filled the
little parsouage aud overflowed into
the yard. Judging by the merry
shout of laughter, all present enjoyed
the occasion, certainly the pastor's
f.iniily did so. The pprovedjtheir gooi
will toward us, by something more
substantial than words: Coffee, sugar
to sweeten It, tea to make the beverage
that "cheers but does not iuebriate,"
rice, dainties perfumed, toilet soap,
prints for dresses, eto, etc, etc. Sub
stantial articles, articlea of luxury,
good things to eat, and more than all
else a hearty good will, and real Inter
est iu the cause we represent. If the
remarks at the close of the evening did
not fully express our appreciation of
every individual gift, it was because
our heart, were too full for our tongues
to be glib. After a lunch, served by
the ladles, ofthemoatexcellentedibles,
our friends bade us good night, and
left us a "wiser and richer" family.
We again unite in thanking the people
of Lebanon for this manifestation of
their interest in our welfare, and kind
ly feeling toward us.
