February 1, at 11 o'clock A. m., is the dnte sst for a hearing and considera- tion of tlfe petition. Jack Hall, the popular democratic "REQUEST NO. 1." ". Editor Corvallis Gazette : At tention is again called to "request No. 1," which appeared in your issue of the 15th inst. There is no more ill will or disposition in "request No. 1" to injure the property of individuals, companies, corporations or the water School Entrtainment. The entertain- ment Riven at the opera house last Wednes- day evening by the public schools was a grand success, and a great credit to both the pupils and teachers. Our citizens put in their little mites to help the cause along, and turned out in large numbers. .The en- tire programme was carried out without a break, and the little ones were frequently applauded by the audience, which showed CLOTHING- - I have decided to close out my Immense Stock of Clothing the present season, consisting of Overcoats, Suits and sep- arate Pants, at Immense Reduction" in Price. . . ,..

The work at tho Corvallis car- nage factory is progressing rapully and quite satisfactorily. About one-h- alf of the windows are in place and the painting is well along. The work of setting up the big engine and boiler is finished and last Friday for the first time the whistle tooted its shrill notes. Workmen are busily engaged this week in fitting the steam pipes for heating the building throughout and the car penters are expected to complete the structure by January 1st, 1892. The dry house was completed more than a week ago and already the company has it filled with lumber seasoning, in or- der to have the niateaial ready to. work up as soon as the factory is started. The shafting is all iu place throughout the building. One carload of machin- ery arrived last week and one this week and it is being set as rapidly as possible; the balance will ar- rive as fast as needed. A carload of springs and another of gear stock is on the way here and is expected to arrive about tlie middle of January. A num- ber of skilled workmen have already been engaged and are ready to come to work on short notice. The company expects to have all the machinery in position and everything complete to operate by the first of February. The factory will start with a force of forty men. Thus will begin a new era in the history of Corvallis as a manufacturing city. Distinguished Visitors. Among the most notable parties that have vis- ited Corvallis for some time were Cap- tain E. S. Edwards, United States lo- cal inspector ot hulls, and wile. Thier guests were Lieut. Helm, TJ. SN., Judge James A. Stephens of California and the Misses Collins ' ot Virginia City, Nevada. They were also accom- panied from Portland by C. T. Ward-lo- w, chief clerk of the traffic, depart- ment of the Oregpn Pacific railroad, and Mrs. Wardlow. The party left Portland Dec. 18 011 the steamer Bent-l- ey and after visiting the principal point en route arrived in Corvallis on Satur- day. They spent Sunday in looking around our fair city, and on Monday returned on the Bentley to Portland. They seem to be well pleased with what little they have seen of the Wil- lamette valley, The First from Benton. Mrs. Belle McCoy, of this city, recently pe- titioned County Judge Hufford for a writ of confinement in the state reform school at Salem, of her two sons, George, aged eight, and Franklin, aged ten. The boys were taken to the school Monday and are the first representa- tives in that institution from Benton county; This institution will prove a varuable training school for the youth of both sexes, who are inclined to re- sist parental authority, if properly man- aged. The industrial and moral nature of the training received at this school, together with the strict discipline en- forced will save many a j'outh from a life of crime or, possibly, a home in the penitentiary. For the Holidays. Ed. Greflbz always keeps apace with the times in the jewelry business, for he knows just what it takes to suit the public gener- ally. Go to his jewelry store if you want to see a fine, full line of quartz jewelry, watch chains, lockets, clocks, gold and silver watches, solid and plated fancy articles for the holidays, and everything else that is kept in his line. If you want to get your best girl something elegant for a Christmas present, the place to get it is Ed. Gref-foz'- s. He would be pleased to have you call and see his goods. Benton County Alliance. Each sub alliance will elect three delegates to the county convention at Corvallis, Thursday, Dec. 31, at T p. m., to elect county officers and transact other busi- ness. At 2 p. m., same day, a lecture will be given by State Lecturer M. V. Rork. All are invited to hear ques- tions important equally to town and country. ; State Organizer. company, than there is m requests nos. 2 and 3. The object in all of them is simply to outline a definite, defined plan to put forward public in- terests and improvements for the pub- lic good and private good as well. When the water company had its headqnarters for pumping at the Hurd planing mill, the pumps forced the wa- ter direct into a six inch main across Third street into a four-inch- , which run south up Third street. When the company put its pumps in the present locality, they commenced at the pump with an eight-inc- h main, which run out to Third street connecting with the four-inc- h down Third street into the six-inc- h. Since moving to the present place there has been a disputed ques- tion of opinion between a large por- tion of the citizens and the water coni- - any. The citizens claiming that to pump tronvan eight-inc- n main into a four-inc- and from- - thence into a s'x- - nch had the effect to cut off the press ure, wnicti accounts tor tne reason tnac the plugs during their use at fires did not furnish an adequate supply of wa- ter as contracted for; while at the in- troduction of the plug system under the old construction the' pressure was ood and adequate, whi'e the water company claimed that it made no dif- ference and that the pressure was as good under the new construction as under the cd. Request No. 1" now asks that this ong disputed ana vexed question ue no longer left to the opinion of the wa- ter company, nor to the citizens or council to decide, but to get the Lett qualified expert on that subject to be ad, and to proceed and make a thor ough examination for the simple pur pose of ascertaining the truth of these two opinions. If the management ot the water company had been in pro gressive hands they would nave nau this same investigation made at their expense and to their own notion when the question was first raised. But they have not done it, consequently "re- quest No. 1" simply asks the city coun cil to do so and pay the expense of this investigation, winch the water company ought to have done long ago. In this petition the members of the water com pany ought to join because they can obtain valuable information ascer tained through an expert at the city's expense, which the company . under any public spirited view of the ques tion ought v to have done long ago. The citizens of the town are not alone in holding this view, but the general superintendents who niake these kind of things a study, and who come to Corvallis to inspect fire insurance agencies, hold the same view with the citizens. Such an investigation by a compe tent expert ctuiiot hurt the water com- pany. If the views of the citizens and fare insurance companies are wrong, and if thev are correct, it will benefit water company in affording them the information by which their plant can be largely , benefited and the city supplied with better water facilities. We trust the members ot the water company will catch on to the public spirited movements (for this time at least), which is destined some day to make this a city of some importance, and especially as this movement can iu no way do them any harm. xL How Thbt do East. The following tern taken from an Eastern paper was hauded to as by Dr. Farra, as Corvallis is about to build a cannery it will be of inter- est to our readers : The canning factory started at Mound City, Mo., last January, has paid out for fruit and labor $16,000. The Mound City Times in speaking about it says that one man sold the crop raised from eleven acres to the factory and it brought him $336 83, or over $GS 93 per acre. More than enough to pay for the land. An other who had Ies3 than twelve acres got $279 62; another ten aud a half acres, $265 53; another seven acres, $141 50; an-- . other, four acres. $119 27.

La grippe is gradu- ally bending this way, but our favored country may be fortunate enough to escape the troublesome disease. We : hope so. La grippe is not to be smiled at Reports from Marshfield announce the finding of a boat right side up, and the dead body of a man on the bead three miles north of the Umpqua river last Saturday. It is supposed to be the lost ship's boat of the General But- - ; ler. Mr. C F. Wardlaw, chief clerk of he traffic department of the O. r. K. R.

Just then a lady stepped into the oflice and pre- sented him with a beautiful bouquet of fresh roses. That's the way we are served in the dead of winter. Hon. C. B. Crosno and Mr. Tones of Toledo, are transacting business in Corvallis this week. They informed the writer that at present Toledo is a quiet place, but that its future pros pects are bright. Work on the big tunnel for coal has been suspended for v the present. State Superintendent E. B. McEl roy made the Gazette office a pleas- - aut call last Saturday.

Come early if you wish to secure a good seat for the occasion. Those who fail to attend will miss a decided treat. Oregon's Exhibit Cab. From a private letter received from Mr. B. W. Johnson, superintendent of the Oregon exhibit car now traveling in the East, it is learned that they are at Sioux City, Iowa, and will work their way from there to Dakota. He states that up to December 1, over 50,000 peo ple visited the car and made a careful examination of the exhibit since leav-iu- g Poitland. Forty thousand sam ple bags of Oregon grains have been distributed, which are anxiously re- ceived by the admirers of Webfoot products. Mr. Johnson says large crowds are continually visiting the car, who manifest great interest and ask many questions about Oregon and its productions. The display of fruits are in fine condition and attract spec- ial attention. He further says, from the interest taken by Eastern people in Oregon, we may confidently count on a heavy immigration of men of means to this state during the coming season. Bert's many Corvallis friendsappreciate the fact that he is capable of showing up the advantages of his home to de- sirable Eastern people in a way that will induce them to locate in Orgon. Republican Club. A meeting was called to convene at the court house last Monday evening for the purpose of organizing a republican club. A temporary organization was effected, and the meeting adjourned until Tues- day evening, December 2a, when per- manent officers will be elected. The coming year will be an important one in political circles, especially in Ore gon, as the presidential campaign fol lows soon after the election for state and county officers, and it behooves all republicans to stand united that there may be no discoi d in the ranks. There will be a bitter contest for supremacy between the two great political parties during the year 1oq2, and it is of the utmost importance that republicans should be harmoniously organized and united on a plan of action. This can be effectively accomplished only by forming clubs in every section ot t country. Already this work has begun in many parts of the country and in Portland and a number of the larger cities of the state. Every republican in Corvallis should attend the meeting next Tuesday night, become an active member, and aid in extending the good work to every precinct in Benton county. The New Deal. Some additional facts concerning the future plans of the Oregon Pacific railroad have been learned from a reliable source, TvhicI will be of interest to the public. This is to the effect that the compromise of the New York bondholders upon plan of action has been fully agreed upon. Col. Hogg is to be retained as president of the road, while Mr. Blai and his friends will remain the man agers and have a voice in the policy o the road in the matter of construction eastward which they have not hereto fore had. The formal sale of the road will be made in January next at th date fixed, after which the new regime will take effect. The war among tli bondholders has all been settled, and it is stated that they will unite thei energies . during . the next year . for th r i i t construction oi ine roaa toward an eastern connection. Next summer. according to the present outlook, will be one of activity along the line east of Albany, and the resumption of work when it is commenced, will be on a ba sis for its permanent prosecution to its final completion, an accomplishment which the people ot Albany and th whole state Lave Jong hoped to see realized- .- Albany H era Id. that their efforts to please the public were j not as "bread cast upon the waters," but that every pat t of the entertainment met the approval, and was highly appreciated by everyone present. The costume drill by thirty-si- x little soldier boys, The Little Mother's song by twenty-fiv- e little girls with dolls, the Japanese Fan Drill by twenty-fiv- e girls in costume, and the "Flo- ral Rainbow" or the tissue paper costume drill by forty little girls, were all well exe- cuted and created a pleasing effect, especi ally the latter, when the colored lights were turned on. The recitations, "Moth- er's Little Man" by Master Charles Shaw, Bachelors For Sale" by Tommy Nolan, "ipeak Gently" by five little girls, "The Thiu Dog" by Jack Arnold and , were rendered with much credit to the lit tle ones. The Comic Quartette, ''The Auctioneer" by Messrs. Blanchard and Pitchard and Misses Shaw and Bacon, was good and created no little mirth for the au- dience. The total receipts of the evening above expenses was about 70, which will be expended for books and other incidental expenses for the school. At the close the pupils of the eighth grade presented their principal, Prof. Blanchard with two fine leather bound volumes, one each of Long- fellow and Bum's poems, and an elegant case of writiug materials Christmas re- membrances from his pupils. Given Their Freedom. On the 19th of last November, James Nagle, Henry Har-dest-y aud Sidney Eunis were playing a ainst a wheel of fortune run by Oliver Nelson at Yaquina City. During the course pf the game the young men got into a dispute with the game keeper and the re- sult was the boys gave Nelson a good, sound threshing. Nelson swore out war- rants against the boys for assault (and bat- tery. They were arrested and tried in Squire Russell's court at Yaquina City, and convicted for .the crime of assault and bat- tery. The justice sentenced them to he confined in the county jail for three months, They were brought to Corvallis and placed in jail. Last Friday they petitioned the county court for a writ of Habeas Corpus, and on the hearing the boys were discharged on the grounds that Justice Russell's judg ment and sentence was null and void. Ac coruing to tne statutes er Uregon in a case of assault and battery in a justice court, a justice '.of the peace can only punish such ciimes by a fine not to exceed $50; and can, not imprison for any length of time as 1 punishment, and in no event can he send them to jail, unless after he Ms imposed fine upon the guilty persons and they fail or refuse to pay such fine, and in that case he can only send them to jail until such fine is paid, not to exceed 23 days. It appears in this case that the justice of the peace ex ceeded his authority in imprisoning the boys for three monthn, aud they were wtongfully confined in jail and were entit- led to ba released on a writ of Habeas Cor pus.

Progress of the Carriage Fac-tory. The work at tho Corvallis car-nage factory is progressing rapully andquite satisfactorily. About one-h- alf ofthe windows are in place and thepainting is well along. The work ofsetting up the big engine and boiler isfinished and last Friday for the firsttime the whistle tooted its shrill notes.Workmen are busily engaged this weekin fitting the steam pipes for heatingthe building throughout and the carpenters are expected to complete thestructure by January 1st, 1892. Thedry house was completed more than aweek ago and already the company hasit filled with lumber seasoning, in or-der to have the niateaial ready to. workup as soon as the factory is started.The shafting is all iu place throughoutthe building. One carload of machin-ery arrived last week and one thisweek and it is being set asrapidly as possible; the balance will ar-

rive as fast as needed. A carload ofsprings and another of gear stock is onthe way here and is expected to arriveabout tlie middle of January. A num-ber of skilled workmen have alreadybeen engaged and are ready to come towork on short notice. The companyexpects to have all the machinery inposition and everything complete tooperate by the first of February. Thefactory will start with a force of fortymen. Thus will begin a new era in thehistory of Corvallis as a manufacturingcity.

Distinguished Visitors. Amongthe most notable parties that have vis-

ited Corvallis for some time were Cap-tain E. S. Edwards, United States lo-

cal inspector ot hulls, and wile. Thierguests were Lieut. Helm, TJ. SN.,Judge James A. Stephens of Californiaand the Misses Collins ' ot VirginiaCity, Nevada. They were also accom-panied from Portland by C. T. Ward-lo- w,

chief clerk of the traffic, depart-ment of the Oregpn Pacific railroad,and Mrs. Wardlow. The party leftPortland Dec. 18 011 the steamer Bent-l- ey

and after visiting the principal pointen route arrived in Corvallis on Satur-day. They spent Sunday in lookingaround our fair city, and on Mondayreturned on the Bentley to Portland.They seem to be well pleased withwhat little they have seen of the Wil-lamette valley,

The boys were taken to the schoolMonday and are the first representa-tives in that institution from Bentoncounty; This institution will prove avaruable training school for the youthof both sexes, who are inclined to re-

sist parental authority, if properly man-

aged. The industrial and moral natureof the training received at this school,together with the strict discipline en-

forced will save many a j'outh from alife of crime or, possibly, a home inthe penitentiary.

company, than there is m requestsnos. 2 and 3. The object in all ofthem is simply to outline a definite,defined plan to put forward public in-

terests and improvements for the pub-lic good and private good as well.

When the water company had itsheadqnarters for pumping at the Hurdplaning mill, the pumps forced the wa-

ter direct into a six inch main acrossThird street into a four-inch- , whichrun south up Third street. When thecompany put its pumps in the presentlocality, they commenced at the pumpwith an eight-inc- h main, which run outto Third street connecting with thefour-inc- h down Third street into thesix-inc-

h. Since moving to the presentplace there has been a disputed ques-tion of opinion between a large por-tion of the citizens and the water coni- -

any. The citizens claiming that topump tronvan eight-inc- n main into afour-inc- and from- - thence into a s'x--

nch had the effect to cut off the pressure, wnicti accounts tor tne reason tnacthe plugs during their use at fires didnot furnish an adequate supply of wa-

ter as contracted for; while at the in-

troduction of the plug system underthe old construction the' pressure was

ood and adequate, whi'e the watercompany claimed that it made no dif-

ference and that the pressure was asgood under the new construction asunder the cd.

Request No. 1" now asks that thisong disputed ana vexed question ue

no longer left to the opinion of the wa-

ter company, nor to the citizens orcouncil to decide, but to get the Lettqualified expert on that subject to be

ad, and to proceed and make a thorough examination for the simple purpose of ascertaining the truth of thesetwo opinions. If the management otthe water company had been in progressive hands they would nave nauthis same investigation made at theirexpense and to their own notion whenthe question was first raised. But theyhave not done it, consequently "re-

quest No. 1" simply asks the city council to do so and pay the expense of thisinvestigation, winch the water companyought to have done long ago. In thispetition the members of the water com

pany ought to join because they canobtain valuable information ascertained through an expert at the city'sexpense, which the company . underany public spirited view of the question ought v to have done long ago.The citizens of the town are not alonein holding this view, but the generalsuperintendents who niake these kindof things a study, and who come toCorvallis to inspect fire insuranceagencies, hold the same view with thecitizens.

Such an investigation by a competent expert ctuiiot hurt the water com-

pany. If the views of the citizens andfare insurance companies are wrong,and if thev are correct, it will benefit

water company in affording themthe information by which their plantcan be largely , benefited and the citysupplied with better water facilities.We trust the members ot the watercompany will catch on to the publicspirited movements (for this time atleast), which is destined some day tomake this a city of some importance,and especially as this movement caniu no way do them any harm. xL

How Thbt do East. The followingtern taken from an Eastern paper was

hauded to as by Dr. Farra, as Corvallis isabout to build a cannery it will be of inter-

est to our readers : The canning factorystarted at Mound City, Mo., last January,has paid out for fruit and labor $16,000. TheMound City Times in speaking about it saysthat one man sold the crop raised fromeleven acres to the factory and it broughthim $336 83, or over $GS 93 per acre.More than enough to pay for the land. Another who had Ies3 than twelve acres got$279 62; another ten aud a half acres,$265 53; another seven acres, $141 50; an-- .

other, four acres. $119 27.

Oregon's Exhibit Cab. From aprivate letter received from Mr. B. W.Johnson, superintendent of the Oregonexhibit car now traveling in the East,it is learned that they are at SiouxCity, Iowa, and will work their wayfrom there to Dakota. He states thatup to December 1, over 50,000 people visited the car and made a carefulexamination of the exhibit since leav-iu- g

Poitland. Forty thousand sample bags of Oregon grains have beendistributed, which are anxiously re-

ceived by the admirers of Webfootproducts. Mr. Johnson says largecrowds are continually visiting thecar, who manifest great interest andask many questions about Oregon andits productions. The display of fruitsare in fine condition and attract spec-ial attention. He further says, fromthe interest taken by Eastern people inOregon, we may confidently count ona heavy immigration of men of meansto this state during the coming season.Bert's many Corvallis friendsappreciatethe fact that he is capable of showingup the advantages of his home to de-sirable Eastern people in a way thatwill induce them to locate in Orgon.

Republican Club. A meeting wascalled to convene at the court houselast Monday evening for the purposeof organizing a republican club. Atemporary organization was effected,and the meeting adjourned until Tues-

day evening, December 2a, when per-manent officers will be elected. Thecoming year will be an important onein political circles, especially in Oregon, as the presidential campaign follows soon after the election for stateand county officers, and it behooves allrepublicans to stand united that theremay be no discoi d in the ranks. Therewill be a bitter contest for supremacybetween the two great political partiesduring the year 1oq2, and it is of theutmost importance that republicansshould be harmoniously organized andunited on a plan of action. This canbe effectively accomplished only byforming clubs in every section ot tcountry. Already this work has begunin many parts of the country and inPortland and a number of the largercities of the state. Every republicanin Corvallis should attend the meetingnext Tuesday night, become an activemember, and aid in extending the goodwork to every precinct in Bentoncounty.

The New Deal. Some additionalfacts concerning the future plans ofthe Oregon Pacific railroad have beenlearned from a reliable source, TvhicIwill be of interest to the public. Thisis to the effect that the compromise ofthe New York bondholders uponplan of action has been fully agreedupon. Col.

The formal sale of the roadwill be made in January next at thdate fixed, after which the new regimewill take effect.

that their efforts to please the public werej not as "bread cast upon the waters," but

that every pat t of the entertainment metthe approval, and was highly appreciatedby everyone present. The costume drill bythirty-si- x little soldier boys, The LittleMother's song by twenty-fiv- e little girlswith dolls, the Japanese Fan Drill bytwenty-fiv- e girls in costume, and the "Flo-ral Rainbow" or the tissue paper costumedrill by forty little girls, were all well exe-

cuted and created a pleasing effect, especially the latter, when the colored lightswere turned on. The recitations, "Moth-er's Little Man" by Master Charles Shaw,

Bachelors For Sale" by Tommy Nolan,"ipeak Gently" by five little girls, "TheThiu Dog" by Jack Arnold and ,were rendered with much credit to the little ones. The Comic Quartette, ''TheAuctioneer" by Messrs. Blanchard andPitchard and Misses Shaw and Bacon, wasgood and created no little mirth for the au-

dience. The total receipts of the eveningabove expenses was about 70, which willbe expended for books and other incidentalexpenses for the school. At the close thepupils of the eighth grade presented theirprincipal, Prof. Blanchard with two fineleather bound volumes, one each of Long-fellow and Bum's poems, and an elegantcase of writiug materials Christmas re-

Given Their Freedom. On the 19th oflast November, James Nagle, Henry Har-dest-y

aud Sidney Eunis were playinga ainst a wheel of fortune run by OliverNelson at Yaquina City. During thecourse pf the game the young men got intoa dispute with the game keeper and the re-

sult was the boys gave Nelson a good,sound threshing. Nelson swore out war-rants against the boys for assault (and bat-

tery. They were arrested and tried inSquire Russell's court at Yaquina City, andconvicted for .the crime of assault and bat-

tery. The justice sentenced them to heconfined in the county jail for three months,They were brought to Corvallis and placedin jail. Last Friday they petitioned thecounty court for a writ of Habeas Corpus,and on the hearing the boys were dischargedon the grounds that Justice Russell's judgment and sentence was null and void. Ac

coruing to tne statutes er Uregon in a caseof assault and battery in a justice court,a justice '.of the peace can only punish suchciimes by a fine not to exceed $50; and can,not imprison for any length of time as 1

punishment, and in no event can he sendthem to jail, unless after he Ms imposedfine upon the guilty persons and they fail orrefuse to pay such fine, and in that case hecan only send them to jail until such fine is

paid, not to exceed 23 days. It appears inthis case that the justice of the peace exceeded his authority in imprisoning theboys for three monthn, aud they werewtongfully confined in jail and were entit-led to ba released on a writ of Habeas Corpus.

The experienced huntsman in the woods never wastes

time looking for bear in Bear Hollow, nor deer along Deer

Creek, nor would he hops to shoot any great number of ducks

on Duck Lake, for his experience has taught him that such

points are always misnamed, and this lesson holds good with

almost everything in life. For instance, in the case of the

brands on articles of food, spices and other ground food

.products, the things branded or labeled "pure", "strictly

pure" or "absolutely pure," are without exception the most

villainously adulterated. "lis the wolf in sheep's clothing' always.

The most brazen case is that of the Royal Baking

Powder. This article is branded and paraded before the peopleas "absolutely pure" when it contains ammonia. You can

smell it in the can and often in the biscuit while hot.

What woman would use an ammonia' or alum bakingpowder if she knew it ? They not only destroy the stomach,but ammonia will destroy the complexion. .

Not so with Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, the

only pure cream tartar powder- - to be obtained, and the.

only baking powder made by a physician. Dr, Price has

devoted . a life-tim-e to perfecting- - this d, in-

dispensable article of 4the culinary art that has stood all thetests and remained the standard for forty years.
