Jalin H. Raymond Gives Evidence Impli
eating the Great Inventor in a Con
spiracy to take Life.
Thos. A. Edison, the great in
ventor, was on trial in Judge
Woodward's court Tuesday af
ternoon. Dr. B. A. Cathey ap
peared as prosecuting attorney,
with such success, be it said,
that Edison may thank his stars
that he was no nearer than Or
ange, N. J. Sheriff Burnett as
sumed the role of Hawkshaw,
with Chief Flett as understudy;
Attorney E. R. Bryson very
ably assisted the prosecution,
acting in the oapacity of physi
cian as well as lawyer, while
Edison was not permitted any
representation, whatever. John
Henry Raymond, a native of
Michigan, aged 43 years, 5 feet,
4 inches in height, and weigh
ing 135 pounds, was the prose
cuting witness.
Mr. Raymond came to Corval
lis some four months ago, and
found employment iu the Strosg
sawmill. Aside from a disposi
tion to impress his fellow labor
ers with the dangers of imperial
ism, he gave no evidence of
mental or moral weakness. For
a time he stayed at the home of
Lee Henkle, but at the instiga
tion of Mark Hanna, it is said
Mr. Henkle declined to longer
shire his home with the strang
er. Mr. Raymond indignant
ly refused to stay at Mr. Hen
kle's after that gentleman re
quested him to leave, and took
up his abode at the Occidental
hotel. Here the emissaries of
his old enemy, Edison, began to
harass him. He called upon
Proprietor Brunk, of that hostel
ry, for protection, but according
to the evidence, Brunk was in
collusion with Edison, and he
turned Mr. Raymond over to the
authorities, and it was durin
the examination which followed
that the lacts in tne case were
brought out. According to Mr,
Raymond's statements during
direct examination by Dr. Cath
ey and later under cross-examination
by Attorney Bryson, he
had been stopping at an hotel in
Florida. Thos. A. Edison and
his daughter were also guests at
this hotel. .iiss Edison became
enamored of Raymond, and
while the latter gave her no en
couragement, never going in her
presence even, she pressed her
suit, assisted by influential
friends. But Edison objected to
the matoh, all because Raymond
wa9 a poor man, and notwith
standing the latter's innocence
in the matter, had persecuted
him from that day to this. The
inventor had in his employ two
men who have followed Ray
mond all over the country, in
tent on destroying him with
dynamite. Two weeks ago they
appeared at the Occidental hotel
and secured a room next to Ray
mond's. Here they kept their
Intended victim awake nights,
whispering plots of his undoing,
discussing explosives and at
tempting to force an entrance
into his room. They wore cork
soled shoes and were so nimble
that Mr. Raymond was unable
to catch them, although he
chased them through the halls
and up and down the stairs of
the hotel all Monday night.
When he applied to Manager
Brnnk for protection that indi
vidual turned him Over to the
police, showing plainly that he
was in league with the conspir
ators. Under order from Judge Wood
ward, the sheriff placed Mr. Ray
mond in the city jail Tuesday
night to protect him from his
enemies, ana weanesaay atter-
noon that officer took Mr. Ray
mond to Salem, where he will be
protected by the state. Mean
time, a sharp eye will be kept on
Edison and his accomplices.

Benton Property Valuable.
Last week A. J. Johnson, one
of Scio's most prominent citi
zens, completed a trade whereby
he disposes of his entire interests
in Scio, for a stock farm in Polk
and Benton counties, comprising
4,250 acres. T. he deal has been

A Tribute to Miss Pernot.
When the .soldier is brought home
on his shield, with reversed arms
and muffled drum, his comrades
follow him to his last resting place,
and we eulogize his memory.
When the statesman and man of
affairs passes away, we hasten to
pay our tribute ot respect. These
are time honored customs we do
well to observe. It is no less fit
ting that we honor the memory of
those who have, been a power for
gooa in tneir community, jior "no
life can be pure in its purpose and
strong in its strife, and all life not
be stronger and purer thereby."
In the death of Lucie A. Pernot
this community has sustained such
a loss. When she came to Cor
vallis eleven years ago, her fine
qualities of heart and brain, soon
won for her a place in the hearts
and bones of those who were quick
to appreciate her worth, and the
circle ot her friends steadily in
creased. As a business woman she
commanded the respect of all those
with whom she came in contact.
Gifted in the art of fine needle
work at the holiday time she made
it possible for these who had not
the lime to devote to such work,
to present to their friends some
dainty gift of her creation, and her
numerous patrons will long have a
kindly remembranceof I he Lad .es.
Bazaar, which she conducted for
several years.
Shortly after hor arrival she be
came identified with the W C T U.
On a vacancy occurring she was
elected secretary, and has never
had a successor. Only those
who are acquainted with this work
can appieciate her effb. Is along this
line, and few of us realize that we
have in our midst a free reading
room, which is maintained by this
organization and made possible by
the- efforts of a few determined
women who recognized in Miss
Pernot an efficient leader.
A member of the First Congrega
tional church, she was ever a faith
ful attendant and a zealous worker.
In the Sabbath school she was a
most successful teacher, and to her
"girls" as she always spoke of her
class she gave her best thought,
and inevitably the result must be
far reaching.
But nowhere, perhaps, was Miss
Pernot more appreciated than in
the club work. At one time she
was a valued member of The
Shakespeare club, but to The Thir
teen club she gave her best energy,
and to her more than any one per
son is due its successful career.
When it was organized November
13, 1892, she was one of the char
ter members and when a place for
meetiog was discussed she offered
the freedom of her home, which
was accepted, and until her ab
senco this fall it has met with her
every Monday evening, except dur
ing vacation. Upon the removal of
the club s first president, Mrs.
Washburn, to Eugene, she was
elected to that office and has served
continuously since, and in all affairs
of the club displayed rare taste and
sound discretion. Always a stu
dent, she possessed' a most versa
tile mind. With a keen sense of
humor and quick at repartee, 6he
was a charming conversationalist,
and her loss to the club is irrepara
When the Paris exposition was
announced she expressed her inten
tion of going, and there were few
persons who attended who were
more able to enjoy a trip to Europe.
Eagerly did her friends anticipate
her return. She has come, but
with sealed Hps, for she has joined
"The choir invisible, whose mueic is
the gladness of the world."
