Fifty two men, representative fruit-

I ent look deep Interest in the forma
tion of the association,! and all sub

stock. A set of by-laws was read and
adopted after a few minor cbangeb
' had been made. One of the provls
I ions of the by-luws is that no member
of the union can own more than one
share of the capital stock, thereby
preventing any person from getting
'a controlling Interest, as business of
the organization will he carried along
co-operative linos. The following

CASE AMONG MOST UNIQUE ON FILE
Not knowing Which Owned 8um of
Money on Deposit, Bank, To Set
tle the Tangle Brings Suit In
IN THE COUNTY JAIL
8C0TCH "NOBLEMAN" AWAITS
HEARING BEFORE GRAND JURY
FOR HIS CLEVER ACTIONS.
Harvie Currle, who claims to be a
scion of a noble family In Scotland,
but who was arrested and imprisoned i
for thirty days in the city Jail at Van
couver, Wash., for larceny, was
brought to this city last Thursday
night to answer a charge of obtaining
money under false pretenses, . and
abides, not in the ancestral halls of
his frimlly, but in the donjons of the
county jail, awaiting bearing before
the Grand Jury.
Currle poses as a grandson of Sir
James Currle of Scotland, and to show
the generosity abounding in his Cale
donian heart, he has given worthless
checks for princely sums to charitable
Institutions and purposes. Making
the acquaintance of Scotch people
here, Currle told them of tho delay
In the arrival of his remittance, and
borrowed various sums from them to
tide him over till the arrival of the
checque. The remittance has not yet
shown up. and Currle left town.
The Circuit Court has issued an In
junction restraining the Justice Court
from proceeding further with the suit
of J. E. Seeley vs. William Knoop
until the further order of the higher
court. The restraining order was ob
tained Saturday by Attorney J. E.
Hedges, representing the Bank of
Oregon City and Mr. Knoop, and if
the result of an unusual tangle In the
court of Justice of the Peace Samson.
The first step in the triangular suit
was the filing of an action by Knoop
against one Packard, who was em
ployed by J. B. Cummlngs. Knoop
filed a garnishment and obtained a
judgment, but tried to get service on
Packard, without success. Then J.
E. Seeley, through G. B. Hockett and
Justice Samson, arranged with Cum
mlngs to deposit $50 due Packard, In
the Bank of Oregon City. Simultane
ously with the deposit, the money
was attached on an execution in the
suit of Seeley against Knoop, Seeley
claiming he was a judgment creditor
and Knoop the. debtor.
Knoop and his attorney remained
in complete ignorance of this new
phase of the case and when they dis
covered what was going on, Knoop'
attorney demanded the money, de
claring that the proceeding was with
out warrant of law at the time of
garnishment, as the suit of Knoop
against Packard was dismissed with
out any motion or the knowledge of
Knoop or his attorney.
Last Thursday Justice Samson sent
an officer to the Bank to obtain the
$50, but the bank, learning of the
tangle, felt it could not, without haz
ard to itself, pay the money to either
Knoop or Seeley, and stated this to
the officer, asking that the court de
termine the ownership of the money.
An order was then Issued out of the
Justice Court requesting one of the
