SALEM. Or., Dec. 12. (Special.) Tho
Supreme Court handed down decisions in
six appealed cases today, four being- re
vfrsals and two affirmances. The cases
Frederick D. Macdonald, administrator
cf the estate of Maurice R- Macdonald,
drceased.vs. Drake C. O'Reilly, appellant,
frm. Multnomah CduritS A. L. ' Frazer.
Judge, affirmed; opinion by Justice Bean.
This -was a statutory nction by the father
f"r damages for the death of his child,
aged 4 years. In March, 1903. while, the !
bry was playing with other children on a
pile of round sticks or piles in the street !
In front of the defendant's property, the
r'-Ung rolled down and crushed him, caus
ing instant dea.th. Tho piles belonged to
O'Reilly and. with tlie consent of ihe city
authorities, were placed in the street by
him. or at his direction,, where they re
mained several weeks. The child lived
with his parents near by and had "been
warned in the presence of his mother to
keep away from that vicinity. The plain
tiff won in the court -below and the de
fendant appealed, alleging that the trial
curt committed error in instructing the
Jury that the negligence of the mother, if
any, is no defense to this action, and
ttat the boy. by reason of his age, could
not be guilty of contributory negligence.
The Supreme Court approves the Instruc
tions given, saying that the father is the
heir of the child and that negligence of
the mother can not bar his right to re
cover, for she is the guardian of the child
equally with him and not as his agent
I'pon the other question the court holds
that although there is a time in a child's
life whon the question of his capacity
will be left to a jury, but "no one will
contend that a child of years has
reached such a degree of judgment, in
telligence or discretion as to be deemed
capable of negligence in playing on a pile
cf timbors left la the public street near
his home." It is also hold that the court
did not err In submitting to the jury the
question whether the negligence of. the
defendant or of the contractor employed
by him -was the proximate cause of the In-Jury-
Scott vs. Ford.
George "V- Scott 4Jid'"H. A-'- Hammond,
executors of the Church Sturtevant estate,
respondents, vs. Eva Ford, appellant,
from Lane County. J. W. Hamilton,
Judge, reversed and remanded; opinion
by Justltce Wolverton.
Under a mistake of law, the plaintiffs
paid 51SO0 to defendant In the belief that
she was entitled to the same as a bene
ficiary of the Sturtevant will. This ac
tion was brought to recover the money
paid, and resulted in a judgment for
plaintiff. The Supreme Court lays down
the rule that "a mistake as to law. with
knowledge of all the facts, there being no
fraud or deceit or undue importunity, will
not excuse, but, where there Is an error
of fact,, bona fide, not arising from the
Intentional neglect of the party to inquire
as to the real condition, even if accom
panied with a mistake or ignorance of
the law, a recovery may be had."
Because the lower court made no find
ings showing a mistake as to facts, it Is
held that the judgment is not supported
by the fin dings and the case is remanded
for now trial.
Wollenberg vs. Rose.
H. "Wollenberg, administrator of the
partnership estate of S. Marks & Co., re
spondent, vs. J. F. Rose, appellant, from
Douglas Counts'. J. W. Hamilton, Judge;
jcversed and dismissed; opinion by Jus
This was a suit by crossbill in equity
to compel Rose to accept certain prof
fered deeds and pay the balance of the
purchase price In accordance with an
agreement made with S. Marks and A.
Marks, before their death. Rose refused
to accept the deeds offered for the rea
son that the conveyances were not from
the holrs of the deceased membors of tho
partnership, and also that a suit is pend
ing for the purpose of setting aside the
deeds on the ground of fraud. The lower
court found for plaintiff, but the Supreme
Court holds that defendant could not be
required to take deeds from any one ex
cept the vendors or their heirs, and also
that the title offered Is not free from doubt
and is not such a title as defendant
could be required " to take.
Bauers vs. Bull.
Frank D. Bauers. appellant, vs. John
Bull, respondent, from Lake County; H.
L. Benson, Judge, reversed; opinion by
Chief Justice Mooro . ,
This was a suit to enjoin interference
with the fiOw'df" Water in a nonnavigable
stream known as Hot Springs Creek, In
Lake County. The defense was that Bull
and his predecessors have used the water
in question for more than ten years for
irrigation purposes, openly and adversely.
The lower court found for defendant,
but upon a review of the testimony the
Supreme Court concludos that the ditch
row sought to be used was a drainage
dttrh and was not used for Irrigation un
tl 1ML and hence the defendant has ac
quired no right by adverse uses.
"As plaintiff and defendant are riparian
proprietors on this stream, and each is
entitled to an equitable share of the water
thereof, we think defendant has failed to
establish a right to maintain the ditch.
even to drain his hayland, when by doing
so the water diverted thereby would de
prive plaintiff of Its reasonable use."
Ruckman vs. Union Railway.
George W. Ruckman, appellant, vs. Un
Ion Railway and Union Street & Subur
ban Railway, respondents, from Union
County: Robert Eakln, Judge; reversed;
opinion by Justice Bean.
This was a suit to foreclose a mortgage
given oy the i-nion Railway to secure cer
tain bonds issued to J. U. Sholton, which
bonds afterward came into the hands of
plaintiff by purchase. The defense was
that the bonds had been nafd in full lo
First National Bank of Union, which
ion owned them. The plaintiff set up in
?ply to this defease that, this question
ad already been litigated In the suit of
nion Street Railway vs. First National
ank, 42 Or., 606, and that the grounds
ow alleged should have been alleged in
wt case.' The trial court held, that the
rmor decree was not a bar, but the Su-
tirHiie Court takes a different view and
holds that since this suit Is upon tho
same- claim and between the same par
ties, and the question now presented was
rtitrm!npri then, the former decree is a
fcnf tA h flpfcnue. now lnteroosed. It is
ordered that a decree be entered as prayed
for In the complaint.
Smith vs. Nelson.
t. t. Kmlth resnondent vs. A. Nelson1
and T. D. Taylor, Sheriff of Umatilla
County, appellants, from Umatilla Coun
ty; W. R. Ellis, Judge, affirmed; opinion
by Justice Wolverton.
TEACHER VS. DIRECTORS.
Miss Nan Shlvely Declared Out of
Cottage Grove School.
SALEM. Or., Dec. 12. (Special.) The at
yn Rtatn Tinari of Education
was occupied today with the trial of the
case of tho Cottage Grovo bcnooi jsoara
against Miss Nan Shlvely. It seems that
Miss Shlvely, whoso homo Is at Astoria,
was elected last Summer to a position In
the cottage tirove ecnoois. ax uie ap
pointed time she wont to begin work, but
before signing a contract the School
Board asked to see her teacher's certifi
cate. This she had Inadvertently left at
Astoria, and the board refused to give a
contract until she should produce evi
dence of her authority to teach. She let
the matter drag along for a few weeks,
when the board adopted a resolution de
claring her position vacant. She appealed
to the County Superintendent, averring
that by letting her begin work the board
had In effect made a contract, and that
she could not bo dismissed without first
being given a hearing. The County Su
perintendent decided in favor of Miss
Shlvely. and the board appealed to tho
State Board of Eucation. Tho question
to be decided Is whethor permitting Miss
Shlvely to begin teaching was equivalent
to giving her a contract. The board as
sorts that since her diploma had not been
registered In Lane County she was not
qualified to teach thero. and could not
have a valid contract of any kind. The
State Board of Education has taken tho
case under advisement
JUST LIKE KEROSENE.
OH From Grounds of Normal School
Given Exacting Test.
MONMOUTH, Or., Dec 12. (Special.)
Some time ago a sample of the oil from
the well now being drilled on the grounds
of the State Normal School was Bent to.
the State University. The analysis reads:
"The oil from the Monmouth well was
submitted to fractional distillation, and
the fractions compared with those usually
obtainod in the distillation of petroleum
under parallel conditions. In color, odor
and specific gravity tho fractions corre
spond closely with true petroleum distil
late. To verify this conclusion a sample
of kerosene oil was distilled In exactly
tho same way as the oil from Monmouth.
The distillates obtained over correspond
ing ranges of temperature were a very lit
tle lighter than in the Monmouth sam
ple, and the heavy oil residue much less
in quantity. This last fact would Indi
cate that the Monmouth oil is rather a
natural derivative of potroleum than a
Standard Oil product."
Since the analysis was made, the well
has been drilled some two feet deopor,
and now tho water is practically unfit

EYE STUDENT YOTE
University of Washington Is
Full of Socialists,
OLITICIANS ARE AROUSED
In Last Election Fifty-Eight Straight
Ballots for Socialism Were Cast
In College Precinct, and Re
gents Are Criticized.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Dec. 11. Special.)
When an appeal is made before the next
Legislature for funds to support the Uni
versity of Washington and to provide
needed Improvements, a demand will be
made to explain the heavy Socialistic
vote in the university precinct and the
presence of Socialist workers among the
employes of that institution. Notice to
this effect has already been served upon
the head of the state Institution by mem
bers of tho King County legislative dele
gation. But one precinct in King County cast
more Socialist votes than the fifth of the
Ninth Ward, wherein vote the members
of the faculty and many of the students
of the State University. The Unlversity
grounds are located In the fifth precinct,
and the dormitory residents, together with
many boarding nearby, vote there.
In tho last general election 5S straight
Socialist votes were cast in the precinct
These votes unquestionably represented
political convictions, and aro more relia
ble than the subsequent figures in the
school election, when the precinct gave
the only Socialistic majority given in Seat
tle. Of all the precincts in Seattle and
King County, but one exceeded tho Uni
versity in the Socialist showing of
strength. This was the first precinct of
the Ninth Ward, otherwise known as In
terbay, whicii cast 59 Socialist votes. In
terbay is the point whore the Great
Northern docks are located, and a point
where tho Socialists have waged a strong
fight for power.
The State university is permeated with
Socialistic doctrines. Among the student
body there is a good percentage of voters
who have followed instructors into the
Socialists' organization. In part, this is
due to the Socialistic tendencies of Rich
ard Winsor "Slippery Dick" of Populistic
fame who Is a member of the board of
regents, and through courtesy has been
allowed to name a few minor officials,
such as janitor and steward of the Insti
tution. These men have been active In
spreading their propaganda, and politi
cians are not satisfied that the depart
ment of political economy Is free from
the Socialistic taint
The recent school election is really re
sponsible for the awakening of King
County politicians. Then the Socialists
carried the precinct the only district In
the city to show tnat party in front Tho
conservative candidates for school direc
tor polled SS and S6 votes respectively.
while the Socialist nominees had 115 and
