An orler for a writ otf review was
granted In the cane of Christian Muralt
vs CUckaiuas county, and the mandata
was served on the county court Thurs
day evening. 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 lew miles
up the Aberncthy creek. ' The viewers
first sppointed by the county court
awarded Muralt damages to the amount
of 175, The court deemed that ' award
excessive, and rejected the report of the
viewers. Ou the same petition the
county court appointed " another - set of
viewers, and they awarded Muralt but
Their report was accepted and the
ro id Whs ordered opened. Muralt based
bis application for the writ of review on
(he allegation tlut the county court ex'
ceeded its jurisdiction when it appointed
the second set of viewers on the one pe
tition.'' Judge Mc Bride ordered 'the
county court to pay the f 175 damages or
baudon proceedings under that petition

E E Masten vs F M Summer, a suit to
resover damages in the' sura of $1500 on
account of the alleged failure of the dtr
fendant to execute deed in accordance
with a bond given June 10, 1592, for IS
acres o( land at Sunnyside, in thiscounty.
By the terms of (he bond," $1003 was to
be paid for the land, and the plaintiff
to have paid $053, and to have expended j
$2!H.50 in improvements, and also claims
to have been ready to perform' all the
obligations of the bond, but was pre'
vented by the sale of the land to another
person in November, 1SU5. The defend
ant denies that the eouditious of ' the
bond were complied with by the plaintiff.
The rehearing of Mrs. Elizabeth Hess
va The Oregon German Baking Co and
T II Liobe was begun Tuesday morning.
Ex-Judge Henry E McGinn N D Simon
and C D Latourette appear for the
plaintiff, while Senator J II Mitchell
and Geo C Brewnell represent the de
fense, The trial is a very important one
and the court room has been full of spec
tators. Mrs Ileas is a neiue of the de
fendant, Liebe. In 1891), her husband,
Christian Hess, was in the employ of the
bakery company, and was suspected of
stealing money from the concern. The
arrest of himself and his wife, at the in
stance of Liebe, followed, and Hess was
so wrought up by his trial that ha shot
Liebo aud committed suicide in Novem
ber, 1803, leaving a long letter fully ex
plaining hia action. , Liebe recovered
and in 18115 Mrs Hess 'brought action for
$25,000 damages for malicious prosecu
tion. On a showing by the defendant
that he could not get a fair trial in Mult
nomah county, because of prejudice
against him there, a change of venua to
Clackamas county was granted, and the
case was heard here three years ago, the
jury awarding the plaintiff $9500, which
was cut down to $9250 , by the court.
The matter was taken to the supreme
court which remanded the cause for a
new trial, on the ground that tho trial
judge, in his charge to the iury erred In
his difimtion of probable cause, as ap
plied to the motive of Liebe when he
caused the arrest of the Ilesses. The
plaintiff went over the story of getting
money in Germany and bringing it to
this country to show that she had money
of her own and that the fact of her hav
ing money in the bank in 1893 was no
indication that she came by it dishonestly.
Theodore H Lei be was on the stand
for five hours. Wednesday, and went at
length into the details ol his relations
with Christine Hess, and swore that iu
Instituting criminal proceedings against
the Ilesses he was governed by the ad
vice of the district attorney. He claimed
to have made a full statement of all the

- Sometime during Friday night burglars
forced an entrance into Ely Brothers
grocery store in the Shively block on
Seventh street,, by drawing the staples
that fastened: the (root door. One of
the bargla'i evidently hurt hia hand in
prying the lock off, as blood was spat
tored over the door and ' lock! Once in
side they proceeded to blow np the safe
by drilling two holes into the door, near
the combination, into which a charge of
powder sufficient to shatter the entire
front , of , the sale was placed. From
the sale the burglars obtained about
$4) in silver and $20 in gold, together
with a note (or $55 75 but overlooked a
pure containing $100 placed among the
books. The fill under the counter was
rifled of some $5 in' small change. On
Saturday a man named Thos.' Richard
son, alias Ryan, was arrested in Portland
on suspicion and will have on examina
tion in Justice Schuebel's court Satur
day morning at 10 o'clock. Richardson
has already served a term in the peniten
tiary for burglarlv and has been ; Identi
fied by Duane Ely as the person seen
about the store Friday before the bnrg

also a fresh wound on his left band. It

The ancient Greeks believed that the
Penates were the gods who attended to
the welfare and prosperity of the family!
They were worshipped as household gods
in every home. The household god of to
day is Dr. King's New Discovery. For
consumption, coughs, colds and for all
affections of Throat, Chest and Lungs it
is invaluable. It has been tried for a

A fact often overlooked or not aWays '
understood, is that women suffer, aa
much from distressing kidney and bladder
troubles as the men. The womb is situ. i.
ated back of and very close to the bladder,
and for that reason any distress, disease.
or Inconvenience manfested in the kid- "
neys, back, bladder or nrinarv passage
is often, by mistake, attributed to female
weakness or womb trouble of some sort.
The error is easily .made and may be
as easily avoided by setting urine aside ,
for twenty-four hours; a sediment: or '
settling is evidence that your kidneys '
and bladder need doctoring. If you haye
pain or dull aching in the back; pass
water too frequently, or scanty supply, ''
with smarting or burning these are also
convincing proofs of kidney trouble. If you
have doctored without benefit, try Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney
remedy. The mild and the extraordinary j
effect will surprise you. It stands the '
highest for its wonderful cures. If you
take a medicine you should take the best.
