It is strenuously contended by, the
counsel for the plaintiff that the Re
corder's simply referring to the Or
dinance as the Prohibition Ordinance
does not sufficiently Identify the Or
dinance as being the Ordinance In
question and is not sufficient proof
of the passage of Ordinance No. 442,
Series of 1910, and that the Ordi
nance should have been referred to!
by. title if not by number in the min
The title of Ordinance No. 442, Sec
ies of 1910, reads as follows: "An
Ordinance prohibiting the sale or dis
posal of spirituous, malt, vinous cr
other intoxicating liquor, within the
corporate limits of the City of La
Grande, Oregon, prescribing the man
ner of enforcements, defining : tinl
sances, prescribing the method of
abating the same, regulating the sale
of intoxicating liquors upon pre
scriptions, providing penalties for the
violation of. this Ordinance and re-,
pealing all Ordinances or parts there
of in conflict herewith." 1 : -Undoubtedly
the object in - requir
ing the proceedings of the council
in the passage of an ordinance to be
entered on the minutes Is to enable
any person Interested in the pa
Bage of the Ordinance to ascertain If
the requirements of the Charter havo
been observed in the passage of the
ordinance. Therefore any lnforma-:
tlon In the minutes that would con
vey to a person this knowledge is suf
ficient. It is of course the better prac
tlce to refer to the Ordinance by ti
tle but we do not believe that this
is necessary. It is a well known fact
that the word "prohibition" in a dry
county like this has a distinct mean-i
ing. No one in this county at least
In reading over the minutes of the
meeting of the Council of. January
12th, 1910, would infer that the pfo

the City limits.. They would know at

I passed at that time was an ordinance

Dictionary defines the word "prohibi
tion" as follows: "The interdiction
by law of the manufacture and sale
of alcoholic drinks except for medi
cinal and sacremental uses." .Web
sters New International Dictionary
defines the word "prohibition" thus:
"The forbidding by law of the Bale
and sometimes the manufacture of
alcoholic liquors as beverages."
This ordinance in question was first
Introduced at the meeting of January
5th, 1910 and read the first time en
tire and the second time by title only
and referred to the Judiciary Commit
tee. In his minutes of this meeting
the Recorder also refers to the Ordi
nance as the "prohibition" Ordinance.
We believe that such a designation of
the Ordinance was a , suilicient de-;
scription of the Ordinance. Again it
is contended ' that the conviction of
the plaintiff was illegal for the rea
son that the Ordinance has no emer
gency clauses as required by law aud
therefore the Ordinance did not take
effect until thirty days after its pa;-
sage or Feb. 12th, 1910, which would
be after the alleged offense of plain
tiff in maintaining a nuisance was
committed aa it la alleged in the com
plaint that he maintained the nui
sance on the 13th day of January,
1910. ' ; , ' ( . "
It follows that if the Ordinance did
not go into effect at the time it was
signed by the Mayor January 12th,
1910, that taa conviction of the plain
tiff herein was ilhgal. 1
Section 11 of the Act-adopted by
the people of this state for the pur
pose of carrying into effect the ini
tiative and referendum powers were
reserved to the people," which Act can
be found on Page 398,, Session Laws
1907, among other things provides as
follows: ' 1
; "No city ordinanceresolution or
franchise shall take effect and be

.Thrills followed thrills as speeding automobiles shot around the
course of the Ingleslde Race Course, on April 24th, in the second and
final day events of the successful meet promoted by the members of .
Islam Temple of the Mystic Shrine. - . v
Thehonors of the day were divided between Barney Oldfield, with
his 200 horsepower Benz machine, and-C. O. King, with his Maxwell
30 horsepower stock car. Oldfield lowered his previous record of one
mile to 51 5-6, which is a new coast record for the circular track.
With the exception of this performance, Oldfield had to take second
place in the list of racing honors, as the world's champion met defeat
in both the five and fifteen mile handicap events, and in both races
King and his Maxwell were the victors. In fact, King proved the
surprise of the meet, driving all of his races with much Judgment and '
taking the turns with his car as close to the fence as did Oldfield. , In
the five mile handicap, Oldfield drove his Knox racer to the utmost,
but the handicap was too strong and he could not get the lead awav'
from King. Not only in the handicap events did King and his. Max-;; 4
well tfrove stars of the first prder, but in one of the first events of the 4
day, the five mile race for cars costing from $1200 to 1600, which was A
cne of the bestmatches of the meet
The time for the five mile handicap was as follows:. Maxwell,, Zk '
King, 4.40.30; Oakland, Nelson, 4.48.25; Chalmers, West, 4.49.30; Auto 5-?
Car , finished fourth, and the Knox car, Barney Oldfield driving, fifth.'' 5
In the event number eight, ten miles free-for-all handicap,' King1 B
and his Maxwell again were the winners, the Maxwell's time' being R
