SEEKS A DIVORCE.
Mrs. Herman Grimm, of Macksburg,
Wants a Separation.
Mrs. Sophia Grimm, of Macksburg,
has sued in the circuit Court, for a
divorce from her husband, Hermann
Grimm, a well known and wealthy
farmer of this county. Mr. and Mrs.
Grimm were married in 1870 and have
ever since then resided together as
husband and wife. Grimm is the
owner of considerable property,
valued at probably $20,000.
Mrs. Grimm alleges in the divorce
complaint that Grimm became an.
gered because she overpaid 10 cents
for a sack of flour at a time when she
was trading, and that her husband
called her down hard, fracturing her
nose, and saying uiiKind and abusive
things to and of her. '
Mrs, Grimm also asks for the ens-
tody of two minor children, aged
18 and 15 years, respectively.
Cot the Wrong Men. '
Night Watchman Ed Shaw arrested
two men Wednesday night on suspic
ion of being connected with the
robbery of the Sell wood car Tuesday
night. Their names were G. R.
Raines, of Butte, Mont., and F. H.
Perkins, of Yellowstone Nations!
Park. They had $20 in money. One'
of them possessed an Iver & Johnson
revolver and each of them had nun
ber of cartrideges. The Portland
police were notified and Detective
Snow came up Saatordy afternoon,
acompanied by the conductor of the
car that was held up and one of the
passengers that was robbed. They
failed to identify the men. One of
the men had a permit from the
Montana auhtorities giving him per
mission to carry a revolver, and the
other had cards indicating that he was
a barber, the men told a straight
story and they were released Satur
Walker Is Acquitted.
The case of the State vs. John fH.
Walker, charged with asault on L
LeMahieu, was heard in the Justice
Court Thursday. Judge Stipp de
clared the defendant not guilty after
the evidence was submitted. ' The
evidence showed that LeMahieu hod
invaded the premises of the Willam
ette Pulp & Paper Company and had
been ordered off by Mr. Walker. He
ref nsesd to go and was
forcibly compelled . to make MmBl
scarce. The court held that Walker
had a right to eject LeMahieu from
the mill, and there was no evidence
to show that the complaining witness
was struckby the defendant.
In the window of a local drug store
is a freak calf. The animal is dead
and has been stuffed. It is owned by
O. B. Clement of Portlnd, who rep
resents an insurance company. Mr.
Clement saw the calf at Seal Rock and
purchased it to exhibit. The calf lias
the appearance of seal, with its legs
doubled up like flippers. It lived two
hours after birth. It is known that
cows are susceptible to the eye in
fluence, and Druggists Jones says that
probably the mother of the calf was
in the habit of gazing at the seals and
seahons that abound in the waters of
Yaquina Bay. (
Mrs. McAdam Has Applied,
Mrs. L. W. MoAdam has applied for
the vacant prinoipalship of the East
ham Publio School and it is under
stood that she is likely to be eleoted.
She lives at present with her husband,
Prof. MoAdam, in Texas. Several
years ago she was principal of the
Eastham school while Prof. McAd
am was superintendent of the Oregon
City Sohools. Her work was very sat
isfactory and her election is probable
at the next meeting of the board of
,Sa!e of Walker Bros. Sawmill.
. Walker Bros, sawmill, at Viola has
been sold to a Mr. Hines, of Eau
Claire, Wis., for (5000. He will take
posession September 1. The mill has
a capacity of 20,000 feet of lumber
daily. The deal was' negotiated by
O. N. Plowman & Co. of this city.
Walker Bros, saw mill is one of the
leading mills in Clackamas county and
its transfer is a matter of consider
able interest to the s'pedple of Viola
Water Main Split.
One of the joints of the water main
in front of the Bank of Oregon City

the woolen mill fire had been placed
under control The main is directly
under the street car track, and Wed
nesday morning the track was torn up
to permit the new joint to beplaced
in the main. The water was shut
off down town while the main was
BAND IS UNPAID
MILWAUKIE MUSICIANS HAVE
GRIEVANCE AGAINST US.
Minster Wetzler Is Trying to Collect $85 Due
His Band But Funds lu Treasurer's Are
J. E. Wetzler, manager of the Mil-
waukie band, does not feel very
kindly disposed toward the committees
in charge of the recent Fourth of
July celebration in this city. He con
tracted to furnish musio on the
Fourth and was to receive $85. No
part of this sum has been paid. Mr.
Wetzler has been in the city several
times since the Fourth trying to col
lect the amount due his band, but so
far has failed. In the hands of Treas
urer Fairolough is 59f leaving a de
ficit of $29.
The Subscription list are not to be
found and A S. Dresser, who was
chairman of the musical committee and
who was ' authorized to engage the
musio at the stipulated price is greatly
perturbed over the failure of the
finance committee to collect and to
placed in the hands of the treasurer
an amount sufficient to pay the debts
of the celebration.
No one seems to know if the orator
of the day, Hon. B. L. Eddy, was
paid $20, which amount was alk tad for
his expenses. In short the celebra
tion was not conducted on a business
basis. It is stated that there was
enough money subscribed to defray
the expenses of the celebration, but it
is not known if the whole amount sub
scribed was collected. In any event
it was not turned over to Mr. Fair
clongh. Mr. Wetzler says that he has
paid some of the band boys out of his
own. pocket to keep them quiet. He
wants the'money that he is justly enti
tled to and should have it. But just
how he is goin 1 to get it is up to the
Fourth of July oommittee.
Sewer Assessment Delinquent.
' The sewer assessment, for sewer
district number three became delin
quent Friday. Those who have not
paid their assessments in cash or who
have not made application for pay
ment under the Bancroft Act, will be
liable to action by the oity iuthoities
and proceeings will in due time be
commenced . against them for the
sale of their property to pay the
assessment. City Recordsr Curry is
hard at work copying the applica
tions in a book designated for that
purpose. When this is completed the
oounoil will pass a resolution instruct
ing the finance committeo to advertise
f jr bonds covering the amount of the
Local Office Not Affected.
The news conveyed througth the
Washington dispatches that the Seo-
reatry of the Interior has issued an
order strictly prohibiting land office
clerks to devote time before and after
office hours to transcribing records,
copying plats, etc., for outside
parties, and drawing personal re
muneration for such service, does
not have any affect on the local office.
None ojt the clerks in , the Oregon
Oity office have ever done any out
side work for attorneys or others and
have been content with the salary
that they draw from the government.
