Henry Wi-tiihard. the I'ortland brer
uml a heavy taxpnyer In Multnomah
county, hns bruuaht a suit In the Mult
uomuh county circuit court (or the pur
IKiM of Uetermlnina the coimtitutlonullty
of the local option law us it la framed
and the provisions of which It Is pro
powd to apply at the November elec
tion In the flxhl that Is being made
aaainxt the saloon. Mr. Welnhard, who
Is represented by a number of the lead
ing attorneys of I'ortland, among them
being Hon. Joseph Hlmon, questions the
legality of the act In several respect.
The reasons why the law Is said to be
unconntltutlonal, Illegal and void are re
cited In the complulnt as follows:
"That the local option law was not duly
or legally enacted and has no force or
validity becaune the law was not sub
mitted to the Governor for his approvul
or dlnaiprval, and the law has not been
signed by the Governor, nor returned with
his objections, nor filed by the Governor
In the office of the Secretary of State,
and under the Coimtitutlon of the state
of Oregon no law can become effective or
be valid until the Governor has had an
opportunity to examine and to approve
or disapprove of the same, except such
measures as the Ixginlatuie may refer to
the tf-ople under the referendum clause
of the Initiative and referendum pro-
"That said proposed local option law
was not duly or legally submitted to the
electors of the Btate of Oregon be
cause the Initiative petition therefor did
not have attached thereto 8 per cent
of the legal voters of the state of Oregon,
and therefore the pretended submission
thereof to the electors of the state by
the Secretary of State was without au
thority ut law and was and Is a void act.
and the vote of the electors was ultra
vires and void.
"That the law Is invalid, void and of
no effect, because the same purports to
be a delegation of legislative power to
the County Court of each of the counties
of the state, which delegation of legis
lative authority the Legislature has no
power to divest Itself of or vest In such
"That the proposed local option liquor
law law Is invalid, void and of no effect,
because no where In the act does the law
prohibit or declare unlawful or Invalid
the sale of Intoxicating liquors.
"That the law Is Invalid and void, be
cause nowhere In the title of the act Is
there exprensed any Intention to pro
hibit or make unlawful the sale of In
toxicating liquors, nor does the title of
the law Indicate or give notice that
the law prohibits or makes unlawful
the sale of Intoxicating liquors, and
such law Is therefore, obnoxious to sec
tion "0, article 4 of the Constitution of
that everj' act shall embrace but one sub
ject and matters proerly connected
therewith, which subjects shall be ex
pressed In the title.
"The law is void because the initiative
and referendum amendment to section 1
of article i of the Constitution of the
state, by which It is claimed the local
option was enacted, violates the Con
stitution of the I'nlted States,, which
guarantees to each state a republican
form of government, which Is a repre
sentative form of government, and the
said amendment establishes a democratic
form of government as opposed to a re
publican form of government.
"The local option law Is void because It
prohibits a prescription by a physician
following some other calling, and pro
hibits sale of liquor upon such prescrip
tion contrary to tlie Constitution of the
state and of the United States against
granting special privileges and limita
tions. "The law Is void because Its taking ef
fect In a particular locality is made to
depend upon the vote of the people there
in contrary to section 21 of article 1 of
the Constitution of Oregon.
"The local option law is void and un
constitutional because it docs not create
the political subdivisions of the county
referred to therein, but leaves them with
out any means of determination.
"It Is also void In this: That It at
temps to delegate to precincts the ques
tion of prohibition when precincts are not
municipal corporations or government
agenctes, but merely convenient divisions
of the county for purposes of county gov
ernment and of elections.
The said local option law Is void be
cause In Its enforcement unconstitutional
search warrants are authorized, not to
be issued upon a probable cause, but upon
'That the law Is void because It pro
vides an unconstitutional rule of evidence
and throws upon the accused the burden
of proving his innocence."
It is expected that the case will be
finally passed on by the courts before
the November election and the ultimate
decision will be awaited with Interest.
OREGON CITY TO HAVE A HOSPITAL

Dr. M. C. Strickland, of this city, pro

Of the proposed hospital.
A iMwpltal has for years been greatly
needed Ifi this city and the people of this

posed by In-. Strickland will be of ade
quale capacity to meet the requirements
of the community that will be served.
FOREIGNERS ENLIVEN THING!.
Wager Ovtr Can of Beer Precipitates
John Tokay had a lively fight with a
Slavonian laborer In a Main street lodg
ing house at a late hour Saturday night.
Reports differ as to the cause of the
trouble, which for a time, threatened
to cause the spilling of some dark colored
blood. Tokay was taken Into custody
by the night polk-e officer and lodged
In the city Jail. The Slavonian claimed
that he was murderously assaulted by
Tokay In consequence of a disagreement
as to a wager, lie asserts that the wager
was based on the amount of the fare be
tween Oregon City and Portland, and
that he having won, the payment of the
bet a can of beer was reluctantly made
by Tokay, who enlivened matters by
assaulting him with a revolver of large
dimensions. The Slav managed to dis
arm his threatening opponent, who Im
mediately produced another gun and
made for the surprised Slavonian, who
Intercepted his assailant a second time
and having overpowered him. held him
until the officers arrived. Tokay relates
an entirely different story. He asserts
that the Slavonian deliberately thrust
his hands Into Tokay's pockets and ab
stracted threfrom about J3. and that It
was for this strange manifestation of
friendship that the Slavonian was as
saulted. Tokay had the benefit of the
doubt In the fracas. He has lived here
and worked as a laborer for several
months where he has enjoyed the repu
tation of being a very peaceful fellow and
when an Intepreter was called from
Portland. It was learned that the Cuban
was In the right and quite Justified In
making the assault, although there was
no evidence to show that at the time of
the alleged assault he was possessed ol
either a revolver or knife or any weapon.
In police court Tokay was fined J50 but
the fine was remitted pending good be
havior. The Slavonian paid a fine of $5
for disorderly conduct.

Board of Equalization Will Not Disturb
Property Values. ,
But one property pwner appeaj-ed on the
appointed day before the County Board
of Equalisation which convened Its an
nunl session Monday. The members of
the board ore making a thorough re
vision of the tax roll and expect to make
but a very limited number of alterations
so that the aggregate of the property
values, which exceeds 10.000,HJO or
about 1300.000 more than the roll of 1903
will not be disturbed. There is very
general satisfaction with the 1904 roll
which has been very carefully prepared
by Assessor Nelson, and that the assess
ing of the property of the county has
been equitably and efficiently performed
is perhaps best In evidence from the lack
of complaint on the part of the tax
payers. DID NOT SUMMON PHYSICIAN.
One Farmer Attends Another's Injuries
William Dallas and W. M. Gardner,
two farmers residing near Damascus,
had an experience last Thursday after
noon that they will not forget for some
time. While descending a hill on a load
of straw neofr Damascus, the .brake
parted and the load, running onto the
horses, frightened them, causing them
to run away. Both men were thrown
into the road. Gardner suffering the se
rious dislocation of the right leg at the
ankle, the bone piercing the flesh and
lodging In the earth. Dallas, who has
had a great deal of experience In treat
ing the wounded in the army, came to
the aid of his companion. He thorough
ly cleansed the wound, reduced the frac
ture and having placed the injured limb
in splints, accompanied Gurdner to his
home. This done, the men decided that
the services of a physician were not
essential to the treatment of the Injury.

Jack Caufield. who returned Saturday
evening with a company of campers from
the Toll Gate on the Mt. Hood road, re
ported that a serious fire, that threat-
ened much damage to the rich timber
In the Forest Reserve, was raging in the
vicinity of the Toll Gate on Zlg Zag

Henry Harmand. a German former re
siding near the Toll Gate, has been ar
rested for carelessness In starting the
fire which he allowed to get beyond his
control. The charge against Harmand
was preferred by Deputy Forest Ranger
Milt Anderson. Last Wednesday Har
mand set fire to a slashing on his prop
erty, and was warned by the ranger not
to allow the fire to get beyond his con
trol. On the following Friday the fire be
came too much for the men who were
watching It. jumped the road and ran
East along Zig Zag creek towards the
Toll Gate. For a time It was thought
that the building at that place were In
danger and the large number of campers)
there was much alarmed.
Another bad feature about Harmand's
case Is that the fire became unmanage- 1
able towards the north and ran up a
heavily wooded ravine, thence to a ridge
that leads towards Mt Hood and. which Is
covered with some of the finest timber
In the Reserve.
Assistant Chief Forest Ranger Ander
son was at the Toll Gate and personally
investigated the case before causing a
complaint to be made against Harmand.
The fears of the rangers and the
woodmen were that the fire would cross
the Sandy river and In that event It
would have practically uninterrupted pro
gress to the Bull Run country which
would place Portland's water supply
system In great danger. It was believed
by hunters that the fire would cover aev
eral thousand acres before It could be ex
tinguished, but Saturday' - opportune-
showers did a great service In clipping
the progress of the fire.
