erncr Weat, demanded that the saloon-
man In the council resign, and they
refused. She then left town and mar-
tlal law was declared, all the saloons
war« eelxed, and the olty officials
placed under arrest.
Miss Fern Holibs, Governor West's
private secretary, did not declare mar
tial law. Her only connection with
the case was to demand of the mayor
and other city officials that they sign
blank resignations. This they declin
ed to do, and then It was that Colonel
Lawson took control and read to the
assembled multitude the proclama
tion of martial law which he had
brought with him from Salem.
Colonel Lawson flatly refused to
recognise an Injunction against Gov
ernor West's martial law order, which
had been sent by telegraph to Bpeclal
Deputy Sheriff U. 8. Jackson by Clr-
oult Judge Anderson, of Maker.
While a lone deputy sheriff waa en
gaged In serving Injunctions on mem
bers of the militia to prevent them
shipping 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 Baker, but there waa
a wealth of gambling paraphernalia,
constating of cards and dice, three
roulette wheels, one "monte" layout
and three money slot machines with
the 'money, It. still In them.
The city officials who have been
under arrest were released by Colonel
laiwson. but the town remained under

to cope with any situation that might
arise in Huntington.

sary, Orders Governor.
Salem, Or.— Learning that lawyers
for the saloonkeepers and city offi
cials of Copperfleld might attempt le
gal action, Oovernor West telegraphed
Colonel Lawson not to pay any atten
tion to any papers served upon him,
and to bring the aatoonmen to Salem
if he could get no assurance of co-op
eration In the enforcement of the laws.
That the governor Intends to punish
those who disobeyed his orders waa
proved when ho telegraphed Circuit
Judge Anderson to hear charges
against the sheriff of Baker county.
