The foundation of the charge is that Sig

Jiyhleh had been outlawed.

The means employed was to have the
CUy Engineer's office hold back accept
ances of street work which Joplin and his

Fifth street, next to the corner of Al
der street, will file suit today in the
State Circuit Court against Sheriff
Word and Under Sheriffs G. P. Morden,
John Cordano and George Wise for
5000 damages. Solomon avers that
the officers unlawfully took possession
of his place of business, thereby caus
ing him loss, and that tho contents are
decaying. These facts will be set out
in his oomplalnt.
Solomon says he made a written de
mand yesterday upon Sheriff Word for
the property, stipulating that no gam
bling would be conducted In the place.
He also "claims that there had been
none in this particular property in the
Solomon states that Sheriff Word re
fused to recognize him as the owner
o the saloon. Ed Mendenhall, the at
torney, who will bring the suit, says
he will sue- the defendants as individ
uals and not as officers, but will per
mit them to set up as a defense that
they acted as officers.
'Suits were filed In Justice Reld's court
during the day by Peter Grant and "Mike"
Solomon, to regain possession of the
building and saloon commonly known as
the Portland Club headquarters. The
writs are directed to Sheriff Word, Chief
Deputy Morden and Deputy Wise. The
complaints lodged allege Illegal occupa
tion of the promises by the officera and
ask the reinstatement of the owners and
payment of costs of the suits.
