A Pioneer of 1845 and a Resident of Ben ton County for. Over 50 Years. Albert G. Mulkey, a pioneer of 1845, and one of the most highly esteemed citizen of this county, has felt the icy had of death and passed to the great beyond. For years he has been troubled with an affliction of. the heart. Last February it became so severe he was I confined to his home. Later he sustained paralysis of the tongue and, arm and although his mind re mained unimpaired, he was render-j ed perfectly helpless, blowly his condition grew worse, and lasi Man day evening, at 7 o'cleck his spirit took its flight. Albert G. Mulkey wa3 born in Buchanan county, Missouri, Octo ber 18, 1838. Together with his father and nine brothers and sisteis, j hia mother having died in 1842, he ; started across the plains in 1844, j arriving in Oregon in the spring of j 184o. In uecemoer toiiowing, me father, together with Johnson Mul key, came to Benton county and took up a claim two miles north west of Corv.allis. Hare he built a cabin, and in March brought his family to this farm, where he resid ed till his death, which occured April 25, 1852. During his resi dence in this state he served a term in the first territorial legisla ture and was otherwise publicly honored. Albert's mother was Miss Mary Dinsmore. She was a native of Alabama, and she was united in marriage with his father while the latter was an instructor in an academy in that state. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. James Mulkey moved to Missouri, and Mr. Mulke became quite promi nent. He was county judge for several teims and was an intimate friend of Tornas Benton. Albert loved the home of his . early boy hood, and death found him upon the farm his father located near this city 55 years ago. He was a man of sterling qualities; a sub stantial citizen, sincere friend, obliging neighbor, devoted husband, indulgent father. The surving members of the fam ily are, the widow; four sons, Grant Mulkey, Elbeiton, Washington; Virgil Mulkey, Pasadena, Califor nia; Hamer and Fred Mulkey, Cor vallis; six daughters, Mrs. Laura Hill, Los Angeles, California; Mrs, Anna Strong, Mrs. Etta Quigley, Mrs. Alice Patton, Mrs. Erma Bur dick, all of Pasadena, California; Gladys Mulkey and a stepson, Mordaunt Goodnough, Corvallis. In the presence of many friends of the deceased, Rev. Memminger conducted the last sad services at the Methodist church Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment was made in Odd Fellows ceme tery. Hilda's Double. For the past few days Albany, Eugene, Salem and other towns in the valley have been visited by a young lady whom all are declaring is Miss Hilda Hobson, who gained some notoriety in Corvallis some weeks ago. She is now in Portland, but the Telegram declares she is not Hilda. It says: "Although several railroadmen and a policeman or two are ready to swear -that the girl in the short skirt and shirtwaist is Hilda Hob son, who "worked" this section very thoroughly, the chief of police and others who had interviewed Hilda upon the occasion of her former visit, declare positively that she is not Hilda, and this is a fact. This girl gives the name of Miss Lottie Smith. In several ways she re sembles the notorious Hilda Hob son. Both Hilda and Miss Smith use a single crutch each, but wht-reai Hilda's affliction was pure sham, that of Miss Smith is genuine. They are about the same height auu unu. .M isa quuiu la prei-Lier, 4fHENEVER you find a properly organized and rightly conducted men's furnish ing stock in a dry goods store there ybu will find a successful one.

No person can exactly tell Hild'a's'age. When the hard lines of experience and knowledge of the world are drawn about her mouth, she looks old, possibly 30. But when she is posing as a helpless waif, storm tossed by the neglect and heedlessness of a cruel world, then it is that Hilda appears at her best. There is a world of helpless tenderness in her eyes, and the soft lines of her face make her appear young and innocent. ' It seems a pity that so tender a plant should be exposed to the harsh blasts of -a selfish, mercantile life, and the sympathizer parts his money and is sorry that he cannot spare more. At such times Hilda appears very young possibly 18. Amos Bogue. After an illness of a week, the death of Amos Bogue occurred at noon last Monday at his residence three miles east of this city.

A Returning Pilgrim Events of Interest Business Circles Quiet. Dr. E. II. Holland and son ar rived in Corvallis, Wednesday, di rect from Skag.vay. They favored this office with a call and gave quite a detailed account of present conditions in the north. Every thing there is quiet, very quiet, at present. Some of the most sub stantial business men of Skag uay are going out of business vol untarily and from necessity, oc casioned by laclc of business, or on account of everything being over done. Some few are leaving Skag uay for Nome, hoping to secure in that locality the wealth that failed to materialize for them in Skaguay. Others, as in the case of the doctor, are coming south, heartily sick of the whole concern. Trie same lines of steamers are flying between Seattle and the ports of the north that have operated for the past two years, but the expected rush to the interior did not take place; and as a result, the transportation com panies having Lynn canal . as a terminus are doing a slack business compared with their harvest of the past. The White Pass & Yukon R. R. Company are at work on the extension of the road to the inter ior and at present are employing about 1,200 men. The work is be ing done at the north end of the Watson valley, near the far-famed White Horse rapids. As a whole, the masses in Skaguay are dis heartened with what has been, and the future does not offer great in ducements. Still, there will al ways be a town at the head of Lynn canal, and Skaguay will be the place. Business will settle to legitimate proportions and into: channels that are certain of remu neration, .4- The doctor is on bis way to Southern .Oregon, where he is well known, and only stopped here to meet a friend residing in this vicinity.

The Corvallis Times publishes a great "cock and bnll" story concerning some investments which it claims the present candidate for clerk, J. A. Gellatly, made in and about Sumpter, Baker county, and the legal luminary and adviser of the Times previously writes another ar ticle on the same subject entitled "Golden Eagle Candidate" and first sent and published it in the Albany Democrat in the attempt to obscure its paternity and to give the Times the excuse, tore publish it under the insincere disguise that it originated outside of the Times and the knowledge of its advisers, which is untrue. Air. Gellatly was born and raised in this county near Corvallis on his father's farm, adjoining which Mr. Gel latly now owns and has owned a nice farm for many years. He has always been a sturdy, prosperous, industrious, upright man and farmer. His services in the recorder's office attended w ith his genial, kind and obliging manners, and work is so well known to eveiybody in this county that it would seem a "bore" fcr this paper to inflict the public as to his good and excellent qualities as a pub lic officer. Without doubt Mr. Gellatly has been one of the best and most com petent officers which Benton county has ever had. The same ability in a man which will make him a good recorder will enable him to make just as good a clerk. But the Times would have you to infer that because Mr. Gellatly made some investments in Baker county that such investment would disqualify him and impair his qualification for clerk. If so, is every man disqualified to hold office because he has made some invest ment outside of Benton county? If so, how many electors will we have in the county otherwiss qualified to hold any office hut who must be disqualified be cause they have investments in another county? Those who have not invested in Lincoln, Multnomah, Baker or some other county wili please hold their hand. Nojone holds up his hand ; then we must infer that we have no candidates who should run for office. Then the Times claims because Mr. Gellatly sold his home just before taking a trip to Sumpter it should disqualify him and cause the people of Benton to disregard him. Mr. Gellatly performed the auties of recorder two years and a half before he owned a house in Corval lis. We presume Mr. Gellatly found a satisfactory chance to sell his house and sold it, but we have not made. any par ticular inquiry about it, because it ia none of our business, simply a private business transaction of Mr. Gellatly's which does not concern us neither does the public care. Mr. Gellatly owns and has owned his farm in this county for years. The fact stands out bold and un disputaple, that Mr. Gellatly is preemin ently qualified to make equal to the best clerk that Benton county has ever had. Then the tales unfolded instead of be ing arguments against Mr. Gellatly sim ply show up an imaginary disposition in the Times to convert "molehills into mountains" and to "strain at a sawmill to swallow a gnat." The truth about Mr. Gellatly's trip is in short as follows: About two years ago Mr. Qellatly lay sick at his home in Corvallis several weeks with typhoid fever which, as in nearly every case of that disease left him in a condition of weakness and so that at times he needed more exercise than the confinement in the recorder's office'gave him. His doc tors advised him to -stir around out of doors to avoid another spell of sickness. So Mr. Gellatly first made a trip to Ya quina bay, then .went to Baker county to visit a short time with some relatives and while on such last visit his investi gations led him to make some invest ments there, but in doing so Mr. Gel latly did not wrong the Times or any of the democratic or other candidates, or any of the people of Benton county or other person, but it simply concerned Mr. Gellatly. and the persons with whom he dealt. This paper would regard it as border ing upon a silly proceeding to ex plain these matters, if it were not to call m The Store Where Ear gains Greet Buyers. $3.50 jjoe for Men .We are sole agents Kline's. the attention of the public in a proper manner to the erratic, incongruous and trivial ideas which are now and have been forced upon the public for twenty years to 'work a deceptive influence on voters in our local elections. It is the duty of every good and respectable citi zen to put his stamp of disapproval upon such electioneering dodges, using his influence to make elections more respect able and decent. Nothing could be said against Mr. Gellatly's integrity, charac ter or abundantly able qualities as a public officer, and hence the adoption of methods alluded to.
