CLOSED ON ATTACHMENT.
Berry's Bicycle and Sporting Goods
Store Sheriff in Charge.
James Berry's bicycle repair shop
and sporting goods establishment
has been doted on an attachment,
and yesterday Sheriff Burnett was
Fengaged in taking an inventory of
the stock. The papers were serv
ed and the doors to the store closed
late Saturday tfternoon. The at
tachment is based on two promis
sory' notes held by August Fischer
against James Berry. v. The state
ment of Mr, Berry is that he and
Mr. Fischer together purchased an
automobile as an investment to' be
sold at a profit,- each having a half
interest in the machine. Mr.
Fischer, Mr. Berry says, furnished
the money for. Berry's half interest,
and took his'; note for the amount.
This ; note was paid off by Berry
September 1, '64," at which time
there appears to have been a dissor
lution ;of the .co-partnership in
the machine, Mr. Fischer with
drawing from the firm." At that
time Berry gave Mr. Fischer two,
notes, one payable next Septemberi
and one in September 1906. Suit
is now brought on these-notes. Mr.
Berry is unable tq say as yet wheth
er or notj he will go out of business.
He hopes to effect an arrangement
and continue, but 1 whether or not
that course will be pursued remains
to be seen. ; '

HAS NEW OFFICERS.
And Blood in Its' Eye The Gtizens
League Annual Meeting Held.
Burt W. Johnson is the new
president of the , Citizens League.
The other officers are. Dr. Harper,
1 st vice president, J. H. Simpson,
second vice president, John Allen,
secretary and Walter Wiles, treas
urer. The above officers are also
the executive committee. A de
termined effort is afoot - to infuse
new vigor into the League, and it
is believed that the bustle and vim
embodied in the new president and
his staff renders favorable ; results
The new officers were named at
the annual meeting held in the
county, court room Monday, even
ing. A large number of memb
ers were in attendance. - For the
past year meetings have only been
held at the. call of the chairman but
in this Lewis and Clark, year it has
been determined to meet monthly.
An adjourned meeting is to occur
Tuesday night at City Hall. A
part of the business will be to hear
the report of a committee on revis
ion of the constitution, and to hear
the naming of a large list of com
mittees provided for by the resolu
tion' at the meeting Monday
night - 7 : - "
Steps were taken at the meeting
to obtain the largest possible
amount of expenditure , from the
$50,000 appropriated by congress
for improvement of Yamhill and
Willamette rivers. , Report has it
that effort will be made to give an
undue' share of this appropriation
to the Yamhill river. The League
voted the executive committee au
thority to memorialize Major Lang-
fitt, representing the importance
of the varied interests involved in
the region tapped by the upper
Willamette to Corvallis, and request
mg that a fair share of the appro
priated tunds be devoted tor an
open Willamette to Corvallis.
Discussion looking to a move for
a union of the railroad - depots and
better conditions with respect there
to .was indulged in, but no action
was taken. The matter will prob
ably be recurred to at next Tues
day knight's meeting.
A strong effort is to be made to
make the League a working factor
tor the up-building of Corvallis.
