niter plaintiff had taken a default judg
ment against the Bogues for $02 in the
justice court, and while the justice was
making a transcript to tile with the
county clerk. The plaintiff alleges that
the deed was fraudulent The defense
claims that the $:;Oileoiisiderati. 11 named
in the deed was a sum owed the grantee
on a loan that had heen out-lawed, hut
which, owing to the roving habits of the
grantee, the grantors hud no previous
opportunity to pay. It is claimed that
the land in dispute was the homestead
of the Bogues, and as such was exempt
from execution, and that such exemption
fees the transaction lrom attack on the
score of fraud . J udge McBride took the
matter under advisement.
An order for a writ of review was
grunted in the case of Christian Muralt
vs. Clackamas county, and the mandate
was served on the county court Thurs
day. The controversy is over the amount
of damages to be awarded the plaintiff
by reason of a change in the location of
the Lynn road, a few miles up the Aber-
nethy creek. The viewers brst appointed
bv the county court awarded Muralt dam
ages to the amount of $175. The court
deemed that award excessive, and reject
ed the report of the viewers. On the
same petition the county court appointed
another set of viewers, and they awarded
Muralt but $15. Their report was ac
cepted and the road was ordered opened.
Muralt based ins application tor the
writ of review on the allegation that the
county court exceeded its jurisdiction
when it appointed the second set of
viewers on the one petition. J udge Me
Bride unhesitatingly agreed with that
view of the case, and ordered the county
court to pay the $175 dam iges or ab indon
proceedings under tnat petition lor a
change of location.

August Krause Saturday niea a su x
against the Oregon Iron & Steel Co. He
alleges that he has a farm of bottom land
on Rock creek, a email stream that flows
into the Tualatin, and that since the de
fendant built a dam across the latter
stream, in 1888, Rock creek has failed to
drain his land as formerly, winch has
caused him damage to the amount of
$1000, which he seeks to recover, and lie
also wants an injunction to prevent the
defendant from maintaining the dam.
The jury that went out Friday night

Kuadarmel, of Clackamas, with a danger
oub weapon, stood nine for conviction
and three for acquittal on the first ballot.
There was 110 change during the night,
and the next morning the jury came into
court and asked for additional instruc
tions as to what constituted a reasonable
doubt, and where the line separating
justifiable defense from unjustifiable as
sault lay. Judge McBride gave the
desired instructions, but they did not
help the jury any, and at 10 o'clock it
reported that it could not agree. It still
stood nine to three. There being no

The Stricklin boys, who reside near

Stricklin, who was indicted here a year
ago for assaulting Shively with a gun
and also for carrying a concealed weapon,
was recently located near Albany, w here
he was teaching school, and he wag
brought answer to the indictments
against him. He pleaded not guilty,
and, in default of $150 bail, went to jail
to await further action in the matter.
His brother, J. O. Stricklin, was tried
on a similar charge last fall and the jury
disagreed. Satu day an equity suit,
brought by Shively aga nst J. Strick
lin, that practically asked lor the can

To Cure Catarrh
Do hot depend upon snuffs, inhalants or
other local applications. Catarrh is a
constitutional disease, and can be suc
cessfully treated only by means of a
constitutional remedy like Hood's
Sarsaparilla. which thoroughly purifies
the blood and removes the scrofulous
I taints which cause catarrh. The great
! number of testimonials from those who
i have been cured of catarrh by Hood's
Sarsaparilla prove the jineqnulled powor
I of this medicine to conquer this disease.
If troubled with Cularrh give Hood's
