be ultimately the winner. They put
up a job on one of the ticket-Holders
the other day. Several persons called

offering three dollars for it. All offers
were declined in the belief that the
buyers had secret information that

HELD HER FARM
Benton County Woman Won aD Im
portant Lawsuit Decision by
Judge Hamilton has handed
down a decision in the case of Mrs
Tally versus; L. Flynn. A farm
valued at $2,500 was involved in
the litigation. The case was tried
at the April term of the circuit
court for Benton county, It was
taken under advisement by Judge
Hamilton, and me decision was re
cently rendered. -
The farni i hear Monroe, and
formerly owHed by C W Starr. In
1889 Tally bought what is now the
Excelsior prune orchard with
$3,000 of Mrs Tally's money. Later
it was sold to the prune company
for $7,500. In 1894, according to
the findings of faot in the decision,
Tally, still using Mrs Tally's money
bought the C W Starr farm, prom
ising to deed it to Mrs Tally. He
got into straightened circumstances
and ultimately he and Mrs Tally
were divorced. For a lien Flynn
had against Tally, in 1897 the lat
ter attached the farm. Later, Mrs
Tally brought suit to clear the
cloud on the title made by Flynn' s
attachment, and the . decision is the
outcome- She regains the farm,
and is now the undisturbed owner.
Judge McFadden was attorney for
Mrs Tally. 1
The Marys-River Bridge at Corvailis
It is 530,Feet Long.
Marys river bridge at Corvailis
is nearing completion. Contractor
Millhollen doesjnot however, expect
to have it ready by August 1st, as
is provided for in the court's time
limit. Inability to get material o
wnicn all Duilaers nave oeen subjec
ted this season by reason of unpre
cedented demand, is cheafly re
sponsible for the delay. Mr Mill
hollen expects though to have the
structure completed by the next
term of the county court, which
convenes a week from next Wed
nesday. The bridge is 530 feet long. That
is a tenth of a mile. The span is
1 50 feet. The south approach is
220 feet;, the north approach i6ofeet
savethe guard rail, is all complete,
the flooring having been laid some
The span also swings in position
and the piles have been driven for
it to rest on. It is supported at
either end by 10 piles Jiaclt pileis
twelve inches square. They are
sawed piles. The workmen are
dow engaged on the south approach.
The flooring of the bridge is of 16
foot timbers, three inches by twelve.
It has been suggested that if half or
three-quarters of an inch space was
left between the piece when the
flooring is laid that benefits would
accrue. The interstices would al
low the dirt to pass through, the
floor and disappear, reducing the
strain on the bridge and keeping
the floor clean. The latter consid
eration would lessen the decay of
the flooring.' The only .disadvan
tage is that the edges of the boards
would wear more than if placed

UNION MEN STRUCK
On Agricultural Hall Because one
Their. Number was Discharged,
Contractor Snook, builder of
Agricultural hall, went to Portland
Thursday, and thereby hangs a tale.
It is a tale of a contractor's trouble
with union labor. Plasterers are
scarce, and. he hired men to come
from Portland and work on the big
building. They were union men
and the wages he paid them was
$6 per day. He also had a part of
the tim Mr Bier and Mr Barnard,
local piasterefg, who were much en
gaged on residences about town.
The account is that one of the
union men was not a good .work
man. His service was 'not satis
factory, and Mr Snook discharged
him. The other union men prompt
ly quit. The contractor was left
with the big building on his hands,
and no plasterers save the irregul
ar help he could get lrom the two
local men. The contractor's trip to
Portland was to secure more men.
Mr bnook had a similar exper
ience with union r-,ck men while
the walls of the hall were under
construction. They all struck for
$5 a day. He paid it. One of the
union men was in the habit of sol
diering. He worked go-as-you-please,
and went slower after a
reprimand for it. Finally, he was
discharged. Snook ran short of
rock men and sent to the Portland
union for more. They sent him
back the discharged man, and the
contractor was forced to submit.
The same outfit of rock men stiuck
because a non-union man was em
ployed at merely handling some of
the stone. Ed Felton of this city,
a splendid rock man, was wanted
by Mr Snook to work on the build
ing, but the union fellows would
not permit it.
