altar, where ihe Impressive raatriasre
ceremony of the Catholic church was
performed by Father Hillebrand, as

After the marriage ceremony Men
delssohn'B Wedding March was beauti
fully rendered, and Mr. and Mrs.
Cooper left for the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Frank. Busch, where a recep
tion was given In their honor.
The bride looked beautiful in an
Empire gown of white Swiss over
white silk, and her long veil was held
In place by orange blossoms. Her
shower bouquet wa3 of white carna
tions. Miss Emma Fallert, sister of
the bride, was prettily gowned In
white swiss over pink silk, and car
ried an arm bouquet of pink carna

borther of the broom, was best man.
The church was beautifully decor
ated for the occasion with Oregon
grape, ferns and palms, the decora
tions, having been In charge of the
bride's friends of this city.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Busch,

TRIED BEFORE JUSTICE GILL ON
CHARGE OF SELLING
ESTACADA MEN FINED
Writ of Habeas CorpLa Brings Case,
Before Judg-j Dimick
In toe County
Ed and Al Close were-arrested at
Estacada and convicted Tuesday be-'
fore Justice of the Peace, F. M. Gill,
on one of six counts charging viola
tion of the local option law, for sell
ing intoxicating liquors within the
corporate limits of the city of Estaca
da. Justice GUI Imposed a fine of
$100 on Ai Close and 20 days In Jail,
while $150 was the amount of Ed'a
One with 10 days in Jail.
The men were arrested on com
plaint of Mayor Helyman, who charges
the defendants with selling Intox
eating liquors to Fred W. Robin, pur
ported to be a detective in the em
ploy of the Antl-Saloon League. It Is
said Robin came to Estacada ome
weeks ago and posed as a laborer. Ho
secured work In a local lumber yard,
and frequented the place of Close
brothers after working hours. In his
testimony against defendants, Robins
testified he bought a number of
drinks at the place, and on February
4. about 10:30 P. M., he bought a
bottle of whiskey from the proprie
tors. Each of the defendants has sued
out a writ of habeas corpus In the
County Court, and Judge Dimick has
set the hearing for Thursday at one
The charter of Estacada gives the
right to license saloons over to the
city. The men were tried and sen
tenced under the state law. Now the
point involved Is whether the Justice
Court has jurisdiction over the ques
tion, as to whether or not the provi
sion of the charter of that city ex
empts the sale of liquor from the local
option law and places it with the
City of Estacada, as does the Medford
charter, which was recently decided
by the Supreme Court. The Estacada
charter was passed by the legislature
after the local option law was adopt
ed. The question, Is of vital importance
to the people of Estacada and will be ,
carefully considered by the court.
