Drake C O'Reilly has filed suit in' tlio
State Circuit Court at Moro, Sherman
County, against the Columbia Southern
Railway Company, B. E. Lytle, May En
rlght, W. H. Moore, A. E. Hammond and
C E. Lytle to recover 513D.OW and for
the appointment of a receiver to take
charge of the affairs of the company.
Tho plaintiff complains that m tne ex
tension of tho road from Moro to Shan
lko, Wasco County, the funds of the
corporation have been fraudulently ab
Borbed by E. E. Lytle, W. H. Moore and
the other defendants in the sum men
tioned, and demands that the company
obtain the return of tho money. The
plaintiff is represented by O'Day & Tarp-
-hh n innr Hni nf nil flninirs
f th Wmrfnnt Pnn.tit..tnr miif.. fnr .
O'Reilly avers that the capital stock
of the corporation Is 3000 shares of the
value of 5100 per share, all paid up, and
that he Is the owner or 1147 shares or
about S3 per cent of the whole. W. H.
Moore, he states, holds 125 shares, May
Enrlght three shares, C. E. Lytle CS
shares and E. E. Lytle 1530 shares.
The concern was organized In 1S97, and
b line was built from Rlggs to Moro. A.
E. Hammond Is In the employ of the cor
poration as chief engineer, having charge
of construction and making surveys. It
is stated that May Enrlght and W. H.
Moore are directors in the company, and
that -C E. Lytle has been a director since
October U, 1S99, and up to March 5, 1M0,
was the nominal president of the com
pany. By a resolution of October 11, 1SPD,
m E. Lytle was appointed general man
nger, with the powers of president, and
In March, 1500, was again elected director
and president, and has ever since con
tinued as such. On Novemoer 24, 1833, It
is stated that a fifth director was pro
vided for In the person of Lizzie M.
Lytle, wife of E. E. Lytic
Tho plaintiff avers that for a long time
prior to March, 1S99. lc was a director
of the company, and was elected director
at tho stockholders meeting In March,
1S99, but never Qualified or attended any
of the meetings, and has had no control
of the management of affairs since that
O Rellly alleges that on January 50,
1S99. tho O. R. & N Co. entered Into
a contract with the Columbia Southern
Railvay Company, which agreement pro-
idod, in order to insu: e the faithful per
formance of the contract, for the trans
fer snd delivery by E. -E. Lvtls of 51
per cent of the stock ot the Columo-a j In the United States Court by the follow
SouthTi Comnanv to the Seeuritv Sav- , intr-named nersonsi
South"-n Company to the Security Sav
ings & Trust Company. That it was also
provided that the Security Savings t
TruFt Company should issue a certificate
to E. E. Lytle ior the stock: that this
stock should be voted by the security
company for Fuch persons as directors
as tho majority of the nolders should
delgnute; that Is to say. that by the
transfer of the stock E. E. Lytle did not
relinquish his control of the company,
but reserved the light to elect directors
as 1X011 as to receive any dividends that
should be declared on the stock.
Tho plaintiff further alleges that on Oc
tober U, 3S99, the company decided to
extend Its line 'rem iloro to Shanlko, a
dibtance of 4S mile, and at the instance
of E. E. Lytle let a contract for grad
ing, track-laying and bridging for a por
of the road to A. E. Hammond, ana i
eond contract November 7. ISO. which j
also provided that Hammond would pro
cure the right of way for the iZ miles
extension for the company; that at the
time of letting the contracts, A. E. Ham
mond was the chief engineer of tlie road,
nd E. E. Lytle. "W. H. Moore, C. 12.
L!e and May Enright fraudulently en
tered Into a fraudulent scheme and lot
the contracts to Hammond at $9000 per
m lc, which was $303 to $4053 in excess
of the actual and necessary cost for
conxtruction and equipment ot the read.
O'RrlUy avers that Hammond was but
a dummy for E. E. Lytle, and the con
tracts were let to Hammond In order for
Lj tie to receive a large amount of money
to ihich he was not entitled, and for
xHeh the company received no consld
crst'on. O'Reilly says he Is advised and
believes that prior to this time the com
;nny had received bid6 for the construc
tion, and Archie Mason was the lowest
bidder, and tho directors of the com
pany, at the instigation of E. E. Lytle,
re'used to award the contract to the low

O'Reilly alleges further in his com
plaint that as par,t of the fraudulent
scheme to defraud him as a shareholder,
and to defraud the-cdmpany, E E. Lytle,
W. H. Moore and other persons In Ihclr
employ, at the Instigation of Lytle, wno
was acting as general manager of the
company, procured deeds for the right
of way to be made to E. B. Lytle for a
consideration, which was not paid; but
many of the deeds were without a money
consideration, by the owners of lands,
who donated the right of way In con
sideration of the benefits to be received
by the building and extending of the
road. The Eastern Oregon Land Com
pany, it is said, executed four deeds to
Lytle, in each of which tho consideration
is stated as $500, and four other deeds tor
a consideration ot HO each. In truth and
in fact, the only consideration paid to
the Eastern Orcpon Land Company ts
alleged to have been 5100, and this for
clerical work, and for the entire 4S miles
right of way the plaintiff avers the total
consideration wil not exceed $1500, arid
that only a small sum of this amount
wis actually paid. Tho- extension was
completed abrut July 1.
O'Reilly asserts' that the 70 miles or
road traverses a very rich and fertile
country, and will do a very profitable
business, and that honest management of
the road would pay dividends. He says
ho has been refused access to the books.
He asks that tro company be granted
judgment against E. E. Lytle, W. H.
Mooro and the other defendants fors$130,

but failed to establish relationship. Fi

COLOAEL EVERETT'S LETTER
SECRETARY OF WAR.
He Will Make a Tender of Ills En-
tire Command for Services
Colonel Edward Everett, commanding'
tho Third Regiment, Oregon National
Guard, has written a letter to the Sec
retary of War offering tho services or
his command "to the Government should,,
at any time an emergency arise wWon
would create a demand for more men In
China than can be furnished by the reg
ular Army organization. It was Colonel.
uverett s intention to offer only his own
nervlccs. but after conference with some
of. his officers md men he felt Justlhed
In making tho assertion that the enJre
regiment will be willing to go. wherever
they can be of service to their country.
Ho has not jet forwarded the letter, as
ho thought possibly a tender of'the Na
tional Guard of the state might be made
by Governor Geer, lnt which event it
woum not be necessary for the com
manders of the various regiments to
make the offer. If, however, he finds
that Governor Geer does not Intend to
take any action, he will send thfe lettci.
Although many members of the regi
ment have seen service in Luzon and
would prove-excellent soldiers in China,
it is not likoly that- the Administration
will be able to accept tnelr services if
offered, as President Mclnmey, in reply
ing to such an offer uum the. Governor
of ono of the states "not long ago an
nounced that It was not expedient nor
possible to take organizations Into ,the
Army as a body or to recruit men through
other than the regular Army channels.
Tho men, however, are said to be eager
to go, and will undoubtedly respond, as
a body in the event of their services
being called ur-on They are well
equipped, splendidly drllledi.and are a
fine, spirited, healthy lot of young fel
lows, who would make a valiant fighting
They are officered largely by men who
have seen service., and in me ranks are
many former Oregon Volunteers, whosej
taste of flqhtlng does not seem to have
apn'eased their appetite for it.
Colonel Everett said last night that he
intended to offer his own services to the
Secretary of War in any event, arid had
hopes that the entire command can oe
taken together, as he believes that -the
men will do better if fighting side by side
than scattered through many companies
and officered by strange men.
- EAST SIDE AFFAIRS.
3ran Kicked by a' Cavalry Horse
Isaac A. Brown, a gardener of L'ohe
Fir cemetery, who lives at 750 East Sal
mon street, was severely injured yester
day by being kicked by a cavalry horse;
on the side and on the head. About 30
cavalry horses which were brought in
on the train got away at the depot and
made a dash out to the cemetery. They"
got on the cemetery grounds at theeast'i
end. which Is not occupied. Brown un
dertook to help surround the horsey, be
fore they could race over the u graves,
and In doing so received a kick on the
head and side. He was removed to his
home, and .two physicians were called to
attend him. It was found that one rib
was broken, and he seems to have re
ceived internal Injuries, the extent ,of
which could not. be determined, at the
time. The injury from the kick on, the
head is not so serious. The horses wore
finally all caught, and they did no dam

, A considerable portion of the widening
of Hawthorne avenue, between East
Twentieth and East Thirty-fourth streets,
has been accomplished, but there still
remains much to" be done In the way of
grading. Work has been suspended for.
the present. Grading is finished from
East Twentieth to Mrs. Dolan's place,
where a skip was made to tho east side
of the hill at East Thirtieth street. From
this latter place most of the grading has
been -done. It remains, however, to cut
through the Dolan hill. The force is at
work somewhere else at present, but will
be brought back to complete the widen
ing. Wide paths are left on both sides
of the avenue, and It Is noticed that ve
hicles are being driven on the north-sido
path for a considerable distance, which,
It continued for any length of time, will
destroy the path. The avenue would cer
tainly be a handsome thoroughfare if it
qould be well improved through to Mount

the Madison-Street Bridge.

ON THE SEINING GROUNDS
how salmon arc: hauled from
Party of Fortlandcrs Views Opera
tions Near the Pillar Itoclc
As the salmon fishing season Is draw
ing to- a close, and large catches were
reported at the seining grounds In the
lower river, and as large catches of sal
mon In the Columbia are soon likely to be
a thing of the past, a party of five citi
zens went down to visit a seining ground
last Sunday. They left on the Lurline
at 10 o'clock Saturday night, and at-5
o'clock the next morning were landed
at Pillar" Rock cannery, some dozen or
so miles aBbve Tongue Point, on the
Washington shore of the river. Their
first exploit was to Invade the boarding
house and make away with unlimited
quantities of ham and eggs, biscuits and
butter, hotcakes and syrup, which the
cook stoically placed before them, despite
a big placard ornamented with a skull
and crossbones, and shotgun, and bearing
the Inscription, "Get your meal tickets
at the office," which was prominently dis
played near the entrance.
They next boarded a tugboat and were
soon landed on a long sand bank two
miles out In the river, back of the Snag
Island jetty, known as the "Middle
Sands," where a gang of a dozen or more
men and five spans of horses, all of
whom lived in a building elevated on
piles some 12 feet above the sand, were
busy putting out a seine to catch sal
mon. The seineboat was towed up the
river half a mile or so, and the rope
at one end made fast. Then the tug
steamed out into the river on a half cir
cle, paying out the rope for about one
third of a mile, and the seine one-third
of a mile long and about 50 feet in depth
and finally the hauling rope at the lower
end was brought o the shore.
There two pairs of stout horses took
charge of the line at the upper end, and
three pairs at the lower end, and the
work of hauling in the seine was begun.
As soon as the last pair of horses was
attached to the seine some 50 yards out
in the shallow water,-the driver gave a
whoop, the team ahead was detached, the
driver hooked the chain onto his belt
xstepped-upon the doubletrees and drove
his horses out Into the water to take a
new hold on the seine, and so on, the
horses pulling slowly and steadily.
As It was about high water at the
tilne, the seine was not carried down by
the tide, and did not pass over much
ground except what had been surrounded.

loop and it was found that there were
about a dozen salmon Inclosed. These
were quickly thrown Into the boat pro
vided, and the men, who had already
coiled the rope on a seine scow, began
piling the long seine on top of it, care
fully, so that It would not tangle when
paying out, and scon everything was
ready for another haul.
Two complete sets of gear are provided

and was playing out another seine, and in
about an hour from the time that the
first lot of fish had been thrown Into the
boat the second seine had been hauled In
and another and larger lot was ready to
be taken out. And so It went on all day,
the men and horses going to dinner in
detachments, so that operations need not
Chris Henry, the superintendent In
charge, promised that the catches would
be larger when the tide began to run out,
and so they were. As soon as the tide
changed and the current began to be felt
the seine was laid out further up the ;
river, 'and it drifted down as It was being j
hauled In. First there were 25 fish, then
40, then 75, in It. and the sport became
exciting. The visitors, armed with hooks
like the box hooks used by stevedores,
only sharp, would plunge into the kick

started to run away with one end of the
seine and one of the men was tripped up
and fell in the water on the seine, form
ing a drag which soon brought the horses
to a stand.
The largest haul made during the day
was 98 salmon, which was not considered
a miraculous one, as frequently many
more are captured, and when the last
haul was made and the tired horses and
men started for "hbme," there was some
thing over 3 tons-of salmon In the boat,
worth $125 per ton.
The visitors were taken back to the can
nery In a boat, and by the time they
had finished supper some 8 or 10 tons of
salmon had been hoisted li from tugs
from different seining grounds, ready to
be canned in the morning.
