Miss Edith Gibson returned home from Newport, Wednesday, having spent a week or more at this favorite resort. The first man to ship grain this year from this section to Portland was J. A. Bushnell, of Junction. He shipped several cars. When last heard from, Dr. Bowen Lester, who is rusticating in Alsea, had suffered a good many duckings, but had caught some big fish. The Eugene Guard, of August Gth, prints a communication from Prineville, dated August 14th. This is taking time by the fore-top. There will be another excursion Sunday over the C. & E. to New port and return The usual time of departure and arrival, will be maintained and the regular Sunday rate of fare will be charged. Miss Bertha Thrasher, who has been confined to her bed since July 1st, with a broken leg, is getting along as well as could be expected. It is thought that she will be able to get up in the course of a couple of weeks. On next Sabbath Rev. L. Boozer will again fill the pulpit of the United Evangelical church.

Knisley, the new pro fessor ot chemistry at the O A C states that he found everything iu excellent condition on his arrival from the East. He has already familiarized himself with his new surroundings. His family will ar rive from the East before fall. Through an oversight in "mak ing ready" for press, Tuesday even ing, a casting was broken on the Times' press and their Wednesday's issue was run on the Gazette piess. A brass casting has been made at the ranklin Foundry, this city, and our contemporary will issue to morrow as usual. The Firemen's annual excursion to Newport occurs tomorrow, over the C. & E. A rate of $2.25 for the round trip will be established, good, for regular train Saturday, allowing a return on Monday's regular. This excursion bids fair to be well patronized, as it grants more time at the coast and the difference of charge of this and the regular Sun day excursion rate is very trifling. George Rose left oh horseback, Wednesday morning, for Portland. From there he leaves by boat ship ping his animal, for The Dalles, from which point he intends to start out on his saddle animal in search of work. He has informa tion which has caused him to be lieve that he will have no difficulty in securing employment. His family will remain in Corvallis for a time, at least. Cal. Thrasher returned the first of the week from Marion county. While at Chemawa he instituted a lodge of Modern Woodmen of America. Cal says that the wheat crop of Marion is going all the way from 4 to 17 bushels per acre, but oats are showing up better, and in some instances have gone as high as 40 bushels per acre. Cal left Wednesday f r Sweet Home, in Linn county, where he will likely be engaged for a week or more. "Tex" Daniels, more notorious as a hobo than anything else, betook himself to the city iail about the hour of midnight Monday, and, bieaking the door down, liberated a frieud who was in for drunken ness. The two of them then came up town, where they were taken in to custody by Officer Wells. "Tex" was given a trial Tuesday evening. He plead guilty and was sentenced to fifty days confinement. It is thought that he will feel mow like breaking out of jail than in. Ex-Coiigresstnan Ellis was a C . & E. passenger to Newport Tuesday.

Mrs. Allan Wilson and family left yesterday to join Mr. Wilson at Turner, where they will make their future home. Roseburg is to have a street fair, and Willie Schmidt, formerly of Corvallis is leading in the voting contest for king. Mr. Franklin, who has been vis iting relatives in Corvallis for the past month, returned luesday to Mt. vernon, Wash., where he has employment. The bond of A. J. Wiliiams, as guardian of the minor heir of J. W. Iveyes, has been filed with the county clerk, in the sum of $400. N. P. Newton is surety. One of the neatest pieces of mar ble work done in this city in a long time has just been finished ty John Scrafford. It is a small monument for Solomon Mulkey's wife and son Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Hemphill started tor the coast yesterday morning. They drove over and will remain for an indefinite period. D. D. Berman is in charge of the harness shop during Mr. Hemhill's absence. Joseph Yates reports that his rop of grain just threshed, went fifteen bushels per acre. Twenty- four bushels by measurement weighed something over 23 bushels, which Mr. Yates think is remark ably good for this season. A small pamphlet, "Some Obser vations on Apple Tree Anthacnose," by Professor Cordley, has just been issued. It treats of the fungas di sease locally known as "canker," "dead spot," or "black spot," and contains matter of much inter est to orchardists. Prof. Chas. L. Johnson is now rusticating on Blue river, in Lane county. I am having great sport here," he writes, "fishing for 'red sides' I have caught some beau ties and there are plenty more finer ones waiting for a more skillful fisherman to come along.', Prof. E. C. Hayward, Prof. Dan Pritchard and daughter, and Els worth Erwin formed a bicycle par ty who left on their wheels for Fortland yesterday morning, rrof. Hayward will ride his wheel to Ta- coma, ana taue the steamer irom there to Victoria, B. C," where he will visit relatives. There is now only about $3,000 due on the delinquent tax list, and $1,000 of this amount is the tax on the Coe lands and other property of like character, to which charges attach as a lien and must be paid before good title can be given to the lands. Here is an evidence of the prosperity of the people of Benton county. In a letter received from Henry Allen the first of the week, the writer says that the Coi vallis con tingent in Washington have aver aged a loss of fifteen pounds apiece in flesh, due to hot weather. The heat is less intense now and all are in g Kd health. Henry was pro moted soon after beginning work in the census department and the re port that John Pipes was the first Oregon boy to receive this recogni tion is an error, 'lhe temporary clerks engaged in the census work will be discharged in December, but those from Corvallis will be employed for two years. A Monroe dispatch savs: The new mail route between this point and Corvallis will soon be estab lished. Papers to that effect have been received here from the depart ment, and the line will begin busi ness about October 1. Mail from this place to the county heretofore cone 11 miles by stage southeast to Junction City, thence by rail to Albany, changed to another line at that city, and then sent by the Corvallis & Eastern to Corvallis. 13y the new arrange ment the distance is only 18 miles all told. This plan does not affect the daily line between here and Junction City. At bis preliminary examination What Corvallisitcs are Doing at the Coast Old Ocean. Editor Gazette :-The tide is iu, the crowds are jolly and ali goes well. Tins is the four teenth season we have spent, more or less, at this popular summer resort, and never before have we seen larger numbers and more signs of improvement and progress than at present. Many uew and costly cottages have recently been built and and several others are in course of construction, while still more are under contract to be built this fall and winter. The future of Nye Creek is assured and whatever the government may or may not do for Yaquina bay- here at this point there will be one of the most popular summer resorts on this northwest coast. Too much credit cannot be given to Mr. S. G. Irviu, the inde fatigable and tireless promoter of every interest connected with Newport and Nye creek. He has overcome the greatest obsta cles, and conquered the most difficult opposition till today lie sees with no little satisfaction the near fulfillment of his high est hopes. It is probable that at Yaquina or Newport there will never be any considerable commercial city, but at the same time it is assured that here at Nye Creek or Nye Beach, there will be a city of summer residences with a population of no small dimen sions. It is speaking within bounds when we estimate that this season there are living here in cottages and camps at least one thousand people. Rudely counted, we should think that there were about 200 men, 400 skies, a more beautiful and sub lime ocean and a more delightful day than this. It is grand be yond description. T. Want to Fight. Pryer Bested Kuebli. women and six hundred child ren. This does not include the dogs and donkevs for of such is Nye Creek. Give this place the facilities of transportation and accommo dations of postal service which it deserves and demands and it will soon surpass any ocean beach iu Oregon or Washington. The climate is perfectly delightful and healthful beyond question: the scenery is always charming and attractive and the beach offers treasures of richest agates and pearly pebbles. To those who desire to bathe in the white crested waves of the briny deep, there is no beach on the coast so alluring and so safe as Nye beach. Nearly 200 can be seen daily enjoying this delightful treat. It is somewhat amusing to watch the bathers going in and coming out. Such a variety of mankind, and womankind, too large and small, short and tall, white and black, red and yellow, pink and blue. Some have a greenish hue, both in color and manner, but after awhile this changes to a deep brown or red. The two chief events of the day are bathing and fhe "boat coming." When the boat ar rives hundreds are gathered, waiting to see who comes. The fact is, the woods and cottages are full of people, while there are but few at the hotels. Cor vallis is pretty well represented. Prof. Covell and family are cosily located 011 breezy point, where they can snuff the fresh air from old ocean's bosom be fore it is tainted by any earthly poison. Mr. and Mrs. Shedd have a neat little home and can sit on their front porch and watch the rest of us. Hon. W. E. Yates is always sure to get on top, and so he has, in his cottage which overlooks the boundless billows of the deep. Mrs. Nelms and Miss Abbie Wright and sis ter have crawled up pretty well on the hill where they can see most everything, so we have to seat has ; be careful as they are our neigh bors. We are sorry that Mr. Nolan and family are over near Newport, for there are no better neighbors in the world than the Nolans. But Mr. Nolan is quite independent and businesslike and don' t enjoy so, much the easy life folks at Nye Creek live. Lewis Wilson and wife always go to Big Creek, for that is a Now that all appearances point to an open declaration of war by the powers upon the government of China, -the Oregon National Guard is anxiously soliciting the government to be allowed to take an active part. During the war with Spain the yellow journals told of the horrible treatment accorded volunteers. aHd ventured the opinion that in case of another war much diffi culty would be encountered in securing men. cut the boys re ceived better treatment than any other army ever received in time of war, far better than the Eng lish arm' has had in Africa and their love of country is stronger than their love of comfort. It is certain that a call would bring out a larger number of volunteers now than for the Spanish war. The official re port shows that Oregon furnished for the Spanish war 723 enlisted men, 50 officers, who secured commissions for volunteer ser vice, and five non-commissioned officers and privates who secured commissions through promotions. Three times that number ap plied for enlistment, but were rejected because of failure to pass the physical examination. In fact, the same as now, whole companies volunteered their services. The Oregon Guard as it stands today will prove a powerful re serve force in case it is needed by Uncle Sam. It comprises the Third regiment of seven companies, the Fourth regiment of eight companies; the Eastern A fight to the finish in regular Pitzsimmons-Sharkey style oc curred in the county jail Wednes day night. Ihere were no specta-1 tors to encourage the combatants, and no officials to rob the victor of the glory of his achievement. The story of the contest is told by one. of the principals and the appear ance of his opponent bears him out in his statements. Since the departure of Baker ami vjrimin irom tne county bastile, Kuebli and Pryor haveenioyed only each others company. borne weeks ago, Kuebli, who is a sullen and desperate character, attempted to break jail, and Pryor's actions at that time showed that he was in terror of his fellow prisoner. He wrote several notes to his jail ors, warning them of Kuebli's in tention to escape and the latter in some way learned of this. He has imposed upon Pryor ever since and has been aching for trouble. Wednesday evening he kept sparr ing at Pryor and bantering him to box awhile. Pryor stood this as long as possible, and finally told Kuebli that he had had enough and would strike him if he persisted. To this Kuebli replied that that was what he wanted him to do. A moment later he struck Pryor in the face and the fur began to fly When hostilities ceased Kuebli's shirt was torn off and his face was bruised and bloody. He acknowl edged defeat and said he had had enough. Pryor shows no marks of the encounter. Additional Local uregon Dattaiion ot three com panies; one separate company at Marjhfield; two companies of cavalry, one company of artillery and a battalion of naval reserv men. All these are well drilled in warfare tactics and equipped with everything needed in case of war, except a few stacks of more modern rines. James H. Stewart.

Mr. A. F. Hershner has a store and is trying to sell out The evidence for the state included the marriage certificate, which re lated that Roscoe Edwards became the husband of Miss Touchet at New London, Wis., aboutMen years ago. There was a letter from the alleged Wisconsin wife, in which she claimed marriage relation with ! Edward?, saying that to her knowl edge no divorce had ever been granted. There were also letters every day and he comes pretty near it for he does a good busi ness. There are a number of Cor vallis people here we have not met yet, Mr. George Irvine and wife, who are at Newport, being James H. Stewart, an Oregon pioneer and resident of Corvalbs since 1851, died at his home in the southern portion of this citv last Monday night at 10:30 o'clock. The immediate cause of death was a paralytic stroke sustained on Wednesday of last week. Mr. Stewart had suffered a number of attacks -of ' this nature in recent years, and the shock of the stroke last week was too severe to survive. James H. Stewart was born in Fountain county, Indiana, June 19, 1825. Here he resided until 19 years of age, when he moved with his parents to Polk county, Mis souri, and followed farming until 1851. September 28, 1851, he ar rived in Oregon, having crossed the plains with his mother, wife and two children. A few months later he settled on the donation land claim two miles north of Cor vallis, where he resided until his removal to this city a few weeks ago. The surviving members of the family are, the widow, now 78 years of age, Mrs. Henrietta Randall, who resides at the Stewart home, Mrs. Mehala Stewart, Corvallis; Jehiel Stewart, Salem; Mrs. Melissa Mc Mahon, Lafe Stewart, Corvallis. The funeral services occurred at the family residence at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning. Interment wa3 made in Urystal LiaKe ceme tery. A Miscalculation. exhibi- e ' 1 . r .

I I have never seen lovelier ) The Bryson-Johnson camping party, which departed Sunday for Alsea' s famous mountains, have had an experience. By the exercise of bad judgment the campers, with their lighter vehicle, drove gaily away from their commissary department and in due season reached thear place of destination. Here they awaited the appearance of their wagon load of provisions, bedding and general camping outfit. It did not appear, and the party did not go supperless to. bed, but sat in silence around a cheerless . fire all night and thought of how cold and hungry they were. It is reported that the ladies thought it great fun, but that their husbands grumbled and said bad things about the commissariat. It seems that the team conveying their outfit was overloaded and got stuck on Alsea mountain; the horses balked and there was trouble generally, and the result was that the ladies and gentle men who awaited its arrival had nothing .to eat, save one light lunch, from early Sunday morn ing until after noon Monday. G S O Humbert, pastor of the Christian church, will begin a series of addresses on Church jHistory or the Gospel in History, next Lord's Day. Subject at 11 a m, "In the Times of Je3us," at 8 p m "In the Times of the Apostles." In another column appears an offer of $50 for the arrest and con viction of the party who broke into the Jersey Creamery and abstracted a number of cheeses. A similar offense was committed at the same place several months ago. The product of this creamery must be a superior article. During the past week the case of b E Martin, plaintiff, vs William Newman, defendant, was tried in the justice court before Judge Hol gate. J F Yates appeared for plaintiff and E E Wilson and J N McFadden for defendant. A judg ment was rendered against the de fendant Newman for $48.50 and the costs and disbursements of the action. Miss Ella Johnson left yesterday for Portland and will be joined to day by Miss Lucy Pernot and her mother. From that city the party will journey together to Paris. Here Miss Pernot and her mother will visit at their home while Miss Johnson will proceed to Italy. She expects to be in Corvallis again by October next while the Pernots will not return until the holidays. It is reported that there will be a big damage suit over the accident at Eddyville last week resulting in the death of Mrs Luckey and in juries to Mr. Weltain and family. W E Yates, of Corvallis, who had been there to investigate the matter returned home this forenoon. It is said that several other Lincoln county bridges are in just as bad condition. Albany Democrat. Supt. Denman, Miss Anna Den man, Miss Minnie Hodes and Dave Osburn returned Tuesday from an outing of a cougle of weeks in the mountains, near Zahn Brothers place. Wm. Baker and the rest of .the party wiH return tomorrow. Supt. Denman states that up to the date of his departure the party had killed six deer and caught trout innumerable. Two of the bucks slain were unusually large and fine, and carried five point antlers. One of the exciting events of the outing was the appearance of a big black bear, but, notwithstanding the fact that volley upon volley was fired at the animal, it escaped. From what the party report of their out ing, it is reasonable tv presume that they may take outing No. 2 this season.
