A LAW SUIT BREWING.
CLACKAMAS COUNTY ASK
ED TO PAY FOR BACK
John LueUing Seeks to Recove
$1,440,00 Paid to Clerks
During His Term of
The preliminary steps towards
vigorous law suit against Clackamas
county were taken on Monday mornin
when A. LueUing, who was formerly th
County Court Recorder of the county,
through his attorneys, Hon. G. B.
Dimick and L Story filed a statement
in the commissioners court of the county
asking that Mr. LueUing be paid the
sum (1,440,00 being the amount paid out
by him for clerk hire during his term ot
It seems that Mr. LueUing was elect
ed on the Populist ticket in 1896 and
ssrved two years as recorder of county
conveyance in the clerks office and that
during that time be employed clerks and
that while the county board of com
missioners never made any allowances
for their pay the same is a just claim on
the county and may even at this late
day have to be paid. Mr. LueUing
was elected on a Populist plat
form that among other things agreed
that all clerk hire should be paid by the
various county officials. As the
question has been passed on by the
Supreme court of the state and adverse
ly to the county, it is not at all unlikely
that the county will in the end have to
pay this claim. The petition to the
Board of County Coinm issioners reads

the laws above referred to.
That during all of said time between
