once more. According to tradition,
on this occasion the fairies convene
and goblins and spooks are out in
full foice. The traditional fairy,
goblin and spook reigns no more,

the small boy sometimes the big
boy. Pranks of various kinds are
played and carried so far that they
sometimes approach criminality.

made a record of the transfer of 120
acres of land in section 8, township
11, from J. J. Sheahan to the State
Iand Board. The consideration
was 100. This is a transfer of un
usual interest. It appears that
this land was deeded to Woods
Jaokson about forty years ago and
again, through some oversight., it
was again deeded to J. J. Sheahan
a couple of years ago. Mr. Jackson
held tho property and a deed to it,
consequently, in order to straighten
the matter out the last purcharer
deeded tne propsrty back to the

performing on a horizontal bar he
failed to catch the bar in some ex

hard one and ite was rendered un
conscious for some time. After he
was revived he was taken home. A
physician was summoned to attend

were intense, but at present he is
resting somewhat easier and it is
hoped that he will fully recover
from the shock.

Malicions and Contemptible.
It is bad enough to be igno
rant; it is worse to be contempti
ble. The pitiable object who is
guilty of batb these short com
ings usually escapes the condem
nation of decent society, which
is disposed to be lenient with
incapables. But there are times
when the "insignificance of the
accuser is lost in the magnitude
of an accusation." In the last
issue of the Times appears an
article which abuses the editor
of the Gazette for defending
the record and good name of the
Oregon and other volunteers
who saw service iu the Philip
pines. Readers of the Gazette
will rocall tho article published
in our last issue under the cap
tion, "Their First Meeting."
We ask that they read it again.
We believe that their unani
mous judgment will be that the
article contains nothing that
would warrant the malicious
squib which appeared in Satur
day's Times under the heading,
"Which Is Right?"
The Gazette's article gave
Mr. Stuart's address as respect
ful and unbiased consideration
as the mos-t ardent supporter of
Mr. Bryan could ask. It took
issue with Mr. Sanders on none
of his contentions, except bis
attack on his comrades in arms.
That we did not make the arti
cle stronger in this respect is be
cause we had not the language
at command with which to do it.
The Times . takes issue with the
Gazette and endorses the utter
ances of Mr. Sanders, thereby
making iteelf a party to the
viiest calumny ever uttered
against our .volunteer soldiery.
We said that it was to the credit
of the better element of Mr.
Bryan's supporters to say that
they did not endorse the tirade
of abuser and invective hurled at
the Oregon volunteers1 by the
young man Sanders, tior his dis
paraging comparisons of our
civilization and national char
acter with that of the Filipinos.
The Times had no reason to,
take offense at this for there was
nothing personal in it. There
was no intention to class that
paper with the better element.
When the Times says we wore
out of employment when war
was declared against Spain or
during any portion of that con-.
met, it lies. During the past
5;,. i f tn
j exceed two weeks respite from
honest, manly labor. At tne
. , ... . -
111 m ennsu,
we were
working in that city, and in or-
der to secure a tew hours leave
to visit Corv'alhs in which city
we were making: arrangements
to agarin take up our residence
we were working nights. Had
we baen disposed to accept the
starvation wages whiqh the
Times has the reputation of pay
ing its employes, we need never
to have gone elsewhere lor work,
for Mr. Irvine expressed his
earnest desire to secure our ser
vices as foreman of his office at
that tfhie. The only difficulty
was the question of wages.
The Times condemns the edi
tor of the Gazette as a skulker,
because he dicruot enlist, and in
doing so brands every young or
able-bodied man in the country,
including his own brother
whose courage and patriotism
we have no reason to doubt as
a shirk and a sneak.
We did not see service. We
were not in the war. But our
army record is as good as W. J.
Bryan's, and we were as near
the Philippines as he ever got,

Our authority for what we have
said is published in another col
umn. The statements gleaned
from these boys have been sup- j
plemeuted by facts gathered j
from the report of the Philip- j
pine commission. We don t
believe Mr. Brvan has secured
his information from any more
reliable source.
If the editor of the Times
would devote his attention more
to a perusal of decent literature
he would escape the ridiculous
situations in which he oft times
finds himself and his paper
would bo relieved of the saffron
hue it reflects like a chamelion.
We apologize to our readers for
this filling of space with dis-
j cussiou of a matter which has no
place in public print, but we
have felt that the attack upon
us warranted it. So far as we
are concerned the incident is

A Philippine Letter.
Harry Beard, well known in
this city, formerly a student, at
the O A C and leader of the col
lesre band, has written an inter
esting let&er to his parents, who
reGide in Linn county. It was
made public in the Albany Her
ald and we print certain extrac&s.
Speaking of the natives and
their enlightenment he says they
have implicit iaith in their abil
ity to make rain. He says:
"In nearly every town on the
island the population were turn
ing out giving torch light pro
cessions, feasts, and sac
rifices, just as people
used to do 2000 years B. C, try
ing to make it rain. Well, these
people over here are about 20c o
years before Christ now, still
they think they made it rain."
Speaking of the rainy season,
he says that the general health
of the men in service there is
better on the average than it was
during the dry season. He also
writes that the natives also
seemed to enjoy better health
during this "season of the year.
Among other matters of inter
est, he gives the following ac
count of a native funeral: "A
native funeral is very interest
ing. They are also ver common
here. The body is placed in a
little flat coffin which is painted
nearly every color of the rain
bow. The coffin is placed on a
sort of table or rack, with lighted
caudles at corner, and carried
by two natives at the cemetery,
following the coffin in the pro
cession is the family, and then
the " hired mourners, gaily
dressed "Senoritas" smoking
cigarettes, talking and laughing
with one another, and everyone
they meet on the street. If the
dead happened to be a rich or
distinguished person the native
band goes along."
From the number of incidents
related of the natives, a person
is quite excusable in forming the
opinion that all of this twaddle
about high Filipino civilization
and enlightenment is- "rot."
Thanksgiving Proclamation.
President McKinley has issued
the usual Thanksgiving proclama
tion, setting the date on Thursday,
November 29, 1900. The following
is the proclamation:
"It has pleased Almighty God to
bring our Nation in safety and
honor through another year . The
works-of religion and charity have
everywhere b:en manifest. Our
country through all its extent, has
been bicssed with abundant har
vests. Labor and the great indus
tries of thepeople have prospered
beyond all precedent. Our com
merce has spread all over the world.
Our power and influence in the
cause of freedom and enlightenment
have extended over distant seas
and lands. The lives of our official
representatives and many of our
people in China have been mar
velously preserved. We have been
generally exempt from pestilence
and other great calamities, and
even the tragic visitation which
overwhelmed the city of Galveston
made evident the sentiments of
sympathy and Christian charity by
virtue of which are one united
"Now, therefore, I, William Mc
Kinley, president of the United
States, do hereby appoint and set
apart Thursday, the 29th day of
November next, to be observed by
all the people of the United States,
at home or abroad, as a day of
thanksgiving and praise to Him
who holds the nations in the hol
low of his hand. I recommend
that they gather in their several
places of worship and devoutly give
Him thanks for the prosperity
wherewith He has endowed us, fer
the valor, devotion and humanity of
our armies and navies, and .for all
His benefits to us as individuals
and as a nation; and that they
humbly pray for the continuance of
His divine favor, for concord and
and amity with other nations, and
for righteousness and peace in all
our ways.
"In witness whereof I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
seal of the United States to be
affixed. Wm. McKinley."

Quite a mtmbeir of capers were
executed Wednesday night that
will have a tendency to make
Hallowe'en memorable. Signs
were moved in various parts &f
the city and some MghSble
changes effected, pffone or
two places sidewalks were torn
up, and small outbuildings were
moved or upset.
The boys at the O AG took
the cannen and planted it on the
new granite-sand walk leading
to the city and its business end
was pointed this way. The
also attempted to move the ver
tebra of a whale that has stood
against the corner outside the
executive building into the build
ing. They made heroic efforts,
and awakened people in the
vicinity "from their slumber by
the grunting and groaning they
underwent while tagging on the
section of vertebra. The best
they could do was to get it well
up on the O A C stepe.
There is a couple of college boys
who could relate a very thrilling
tale if they were so inclined. A

shots fired and presently a cou

breaths, that lie heard the shots
whiz. Well, although it makes
some people mad to have their
affairs meddled with, Hallowe'en
