To Grant Sutherlin Local
Option Election. ;
Attorney H. Ij. YUUly Would Force
County Court to Act Upon
Petition of Sutherlin
Another chapter In the proceed
ings to bring about a local option
election at Sutherlin on November
4 came to light in the circuit court
this morning, when Attorney B. L.
Eddy, representing Mrs. M. E.
French, one of the original petition
ers for the election, filed manda
mus proceedings requiring the coun
ty court of Douglas county to grant
the election as prayed for in the
petition filed with the court a few
weeks ago.
The proceedings were submitted to
Judge J. W. Hamilton In the circuit
court shortly before noon. After
brief consideration he Issued an al
terantive mandamus compelling
County Judge Rice and Commission
ers Pinkston and Wiley to either
grant the petition or appear in court
at 10 o'clock next Tuesday morning
and show cause why they should not
grant the request.
The proceedings filed by Attor
ney Eddy are to the effect that cer
tain residents of Sutherlin filed with
the county court of Douglas county
on October 3 a petition In which
they requested that a local option
election be called there on Novem
ber 4. The petition was signed, the
petitioners vlaim, by 23 qualified
and legal voters of the city of Suth
erlin. I'pcn receint of the FRtd petition.
Attorney Eddy claims the court Im
mediately filed the same, and there
upon compared the signatures of the
electors with their signatures In the
registration hooks of the election
then pending.
Upon comparing these signatures.
County Clerk Lenox filed with the
court a statement to the effect that
all of the 23 sinners were registered
voters of the city of Sutherlin, and;
represented more than 10 per cent;
of the votes cast at the last gen-1
eral election. j
Attorney Eddy a'lleges, that nn
October (1, at a regular meeting of
the county court the petition was
considered and filially denied. The
eist of the order, denying the peti
tion, was to the effect that the law
specifies that local option elections
can only be held on the date of a
general election. The court held In
this case tha:. there was no genernl
election to be held on November 4,
of this year, and consequently the
election would be illegal. If held. As
a result the petition was denied.
Attorney Eddy claims that it Is In
cumbent upon the county court of
Douuias county to call the election
reqesMed In the petition, regardless
of the denial reerntly entered in

LIVERPOOL, Oct. ll.After
burning to the waters edge the
steamer Volturno sank In the mid
Atlantic ocean last Friday morning.
On board the steamer at the time
of the accident were 564 passengers i
ana a crew of 93 men. Of these 136
are missing, and have undoubtedly
As soon as the fire was discovered
distress signals were given, and
within a short time ten liners sur
rounded the charred hulk of the sink
ing shfp. Through desperate risk of
life five passen gers and 20 m e m
bers of the crew were rescued. The
Volturno was commanded by Fran
cis Inch, who won captain's sdMpes
two months ago. The boat belong
ed to the Canadian Northern Steam
ship Company, but was leased by the
the court Journal. The proposition
is purely a question of law, and will
probably be settled Tuesday morn
ing when all parties concernod will
appear before Judge Hamilton and
pu limit arguments for and against
the petition.
In bringing mandamus proceed
ings in the circuit court. Attorney
Eddy simply seeks to compel! the
inferior court to grant the petition
as requested by the petitioners.
Considerable Interest Is manifest
in the outcome of the proceedings
and a large number of people will
no doubt he on hand Tuesday to
hear the arguments of the attor
neys. The proceedings are directed
against County Judge Dexter Rlc
and Commissioners Harry Pinkston
and Jefferson Wiley.
