One of the graduates from O.
SUED THE SHERIFF.
But Another .. was Real. Defendant:
' Tried this Week in Circuit Court. 1
One oF the principal cases at this
term of circuit court was that , of
Davis and Schryder versus Sheriff
Burnett. It was a suit for recov
ery of $210 damages, alleged to
have resulted from the replevin by
ihe sheriff of 325 head of sheep
taken from James 1,. I,ewis, acting
for Davis and Schryder.
The sheep were originally the,
property of a man named s.Staats'
who resided at Monmouth. - The
Polk county bank had a mortgage
on them. In spite of the mortgage
Staats sold the sheep to Lewis who
drove them into Benton county, en
route to ; Davis and Schryder in
Linn county. '. ... While . the sheep
were in Benton, Sheriff Burnett
replevined them in behalf of the
Polk county bank,, holder , of the
mortgage, and the band was taken
back to Polk county, and kept there
for a time in a pasture. After that
Staats paid off the mortgage at the
bank, and 'then the; sheep were
released and turned over to the purr
chasers. The latter then claimed
that a number of sheep had been
lost, the price was not as good, and
that on account of poor pasturage
there had been a shrinkage in the
value of the flock, : They figured
out that the aggregate of all these
items was $2105 and brought suit
against Sheriff Burnett, for that
amount. - Of course the real de
fendant was the Polk county bank,
Sheriff Burnett having taken the
precaution of securing a proper in
demnity bond' covering such a con-:
The case came up for trial at noon
Monday. All that day and all - of
the following day was ' consumed
in hearing evidence and argument
in the case. - The jury went out
about nine o'clock, and it - took
three hours to reach a verdict, The
jury found that the defendant
should pay-plaintiff $39, which
amount had been tendered former
ly, to cover the loss of 12 sheep,
admitted as - having disappeared
while the band was in the bank's

their destination, as stated by them

country, where they expected .' to
carry on the religious work of
which has recently received ' so
much attention. Their convey
ance was a buggy drawn by a single
horse. Friday, they passed through
Alsea Valley, and on Sunday cross
edover the Preacher Creek moun
tain and down onto Five Rivers
An unfortunate feature of the con
ditions in tnat locality as well as
in Lobster, ' is that although the
county roads frequently cross both
streams, there is but one bridge on
either. This fact is what ' led . to
the - misfortune - which - befell the
travelers mentioned. - It is not cer
tain at which ford they experienced
their dif5culy, but at one ' of. tie
crossings of Five Rivers, the men.
horse and conveyance were washed
down by the swollen stream.. In
a brief time all the detachable) parts
of the entire outfit became separa
ted. . At er - being, carried down
something nts;e 200 yards the men
managed to reach the ' . bank, : A
little below, .the. horse regained his
tooting.'and clambered to a place
of comparative" safety. . The ' ve-
mcie,: tumbling over and over, was
swept on to a distance of a quarter
of a mile ' below the : ford, . The
horse, w ith much difficulty . was
taken tip a precipitous bank and
through a tangle of undergrowth
to the road. A portion of the bug'
gy was dragged from the stream,
the only, portion recovered being
the gear and springs, . J lhe top,
box and shafts, it seems, were whol
ly lost, When the Fisher-Alsea
mail carrier passed over his route
Monday the remains of the buggy
occupied a trail which he travels to
avoid two of the fords. The set
tlers in the vicinity were render
ing the unfortunate travelers what
assistance they could to put them

Cannot Punish ThdSe who. Gi ve Jjignor
a " rXV Minors, Except -. in ;Caae of

A decision in the circuit court
this week seems to indicate that the
city of Corvallis is vwithout ' aothor
ity to provide pqnishmeat for those
who give liquor to minors, except
in the Case of" saloon keepers. Last
summer Mrs! Mary Smith was con
victed in the city police court of
giving liquor to minors, and the
case was appealed to the circuit
,The appeal was heard by Tudee
Benson yesterday. The appellants
pleaded thaf the city charter did
not confer authority on the council
to pass an ordinance providing pun
ishment where other than a liquor
dealer supplied minors L,with , in
toxicants., y.- The ' court held with
the appellants and the city was de
feated, . " .
Fortunately, there are state' pen
alties for such offenses, and they
are much more' ee e han those pre
scribed .ubder the city ordinance
involved. I Corvallis police 'officers
may at any time invoke the .state
authority for a proper punishment
of the offense. ...
The city was also skinned in the
Blumberg skin case, Jacob Bliim
berg was arrested and fined for .
keeping hides in his place next
door south of J. ,H, . Harris' e?tab-.
lishment, which hides were in - the
nature of a nuisance- His case was
appealed and the' circuit court held
that the terms of the ordinance were
not sufficiently specjfic in character
to apply, to the Blumberg case. The
cases were argued for the city . by
F.iPrMorgan and for appellants by
B. R. Bryson. '". r''--
