Copperfleld, Or Martial law was
declared at Copperfleld by Colonel B.
K. Lawson. He was supported by five
members of the coast artillery. Miss
Fern Hobbs, private secretary to Gov
ernor West, demanded that the saloon
men In the council resign, and they
refused. She then left town and mar
tial law Wg declared, all the Baloons
were seled. and the city officials
plai ed undi r arrest.
Miss Kern Hobbs, Governor West'e
private secretary, did not declare mar
tial law. Her only connection with
the gggg was to demand of the mayor
and other city officials that they sign
blank resignations. This they declin
ed to do, and then It wiib that Colonel
Lawson took control and read to the
assembled multitude the proclama
tion of martini law which he had
brought with him from Salem.
Colonel I.awson flatly refused to
recognize an Injunction against Gov
ernor West's martini law order, which
had been sent by telegraph to Special
Deputy Sheriff V. 8. Jackson by Cir
cuit Judge Anderson, of Maker
While a lone deputy sheriff waa en
gaged In serving Injunctions on mem
bers of the militia to prevent them
hipping confiscated liquors and bar
fixtures out of the town, the troops,
under Colonel B. K. Lawson, kept
right on loading the contraband goods
on the train.
Not only were liquors and bar fix
tures shipped to Maker, but there was
a wealth of gambling paraphernalia,
consisting of cards and dire, three
roulette wheels, one "monte" layout
and three money slot machines with
the money, IS, still In them.
The city officials who have been
under arrest were released by Colonel
Lawson, hut the town remained under
Huntington, Or. Troops from the
Oregon state mllltln under Colonel B
K Lawson arrived here to declare
martial law and to close the saloons
There are 10 militiamen from Cop
perfleld who are with Colonel l.awmui
and this force Is considered sufficient
to cope with any situation that might
arise In Huntington.
