Forest Grove Saloon
NO RIGHT BY CHARTER
Judge McBride Holds That
License Is Impossible,
PROTEST BY COLLEGE WINS
Officials Have No Power to Pass an
Ordinance Allowing Liquor-Selling
Unless the Legislature
Amends Charter of City.
HIL'LSBORO, Or.. April 2. (Special.)
Judge T. A. McBride this morning over
ruled the demurrer of the defendants. C.
X. Miller, Mayor of Forest Grove, and
this practically decides that Forest Grove
can have no licensed saloon under the
provisions of the present charter.
The Pacific University Is the plaintiff,
and has been making a long fight to kejep
saloons out of the town.
The decision handed down covers the
pround in the several legal aspects, and
the only recourse at present for the saloon-keeper,
A. G. Watson, is to file a
tond and appeal the case to the Circuit
The decision delivered by the court is
as follows, verbatim:
"That the institution was founded by
Harvey Clark with the stipulation that no
intoxicating liquors should ever be dis
pensed on the 200 acres deeded to the"
University. That there has never been
a licensed saloon in the town, a"nd that
because of this fact many people bought
property and resided there, and that be
cause of this many endowments have
been made to the University. That tne
Mayor and Council have passed a license
ordinance, and that A. G. Watson Is
about to open a saloon within 300 feet
of the University entrance."
Judge McBride said the important ques
tion was whether the authorities have
ihc right to license a saloon. By tne
charter they are given the right to reg
ulate. In his decision he reviews the
amendments made to the Forest Grove
charter at various sessions, and then
'"Taking the charter by its four cor
ners seeking in its contents as a
whole for light upon this question, I can
jiot read the word license Into it. The
legislature did not put it there; the City
Council, which caused thiB charter to be
presented and wrote their approvals of its
provisions upon Its face, did not put It
there and the court will not put It there.
"I am satisfied that the Legislature no
more Intended that the City Council
should license the selling of liquor than
it should license a bawdy house or a
gambling hell. In passing upon this ques
tion the court does not consider what
would be best for the citizens of Forest
Grove. It is possible that the liquor traf
fic would be less dangerous to the public
morals if conducted as required in the
proposed ordinance, than it would be
conducted secretly and unlawfully, but If
that is true they have to go to the Leg
islature and secure the authority which
In my power is lacking in the present
"The ordinances set forth in the com
plaint are wholly void for want of author
ity in the City Council to pass it, and
the demurrer will be overruled."
REJOICE AT INJUNCTION.
Saloon Would Have Opened While
Church Was Being Dedicated.
FOREST GROVE Or., April 3. (Spe
cial.) Temperance people here are re
joicing at the decision of Judge Mc
Bride, which grants a permanent injunc
tion against the Issuing of a saloon
license in Forest Grove. Both sides had
expressed confidence in the final outcome
of the case.
The liquor men had announced that
they would open the saloon simultaneous
ly with the exercises of dedication at the
Congregational Church tonight. It will
remain closed, and the church services
will take on added zest, for the Congrega
tlonallsts. together with the other church
people of the city, have been behind the
Pacific University in its application for
The saloon building was completed and
fully stocked for business, but the pro
prietor had not yet paid his license
money. It is thought that he will at
tempt to operate the place as a "com
mercial club," such as the one which
successfully evaded the prohibitory ordi
nance last year. If he does the univer
sity, encouraged by this victory, wilP try
to suppress It.
SUNDAY .SALOON COSTS $25.
One Proprietor Is Fined, but Mayor
of Bourne Is Acquitted.
BAKER CITY, Or., April 3. (Spe
cial.) William Ebilin, the saloonman
who was convicted last week of keep
ing his saloon open on Sunday, was
sentenced b3' Judge White this morn
ing to pay a fine of $25 and costs. This
is the maximum amount under the law.
Gus Anderson, of Bourne, who was
tried last week for keeping: Ills saloon
open on Sunday and whose jury failed
to agree, was placed on trial again this
morning on the charge of allowing
minors to frequent his saloon. Ander
son is the Mayor of Bourne. It was
charged that he allowed George Ren
ptrom. a boy of 19 years of age. to enter
his saloon February 25. Two witnesses
testified to the fact that Benstrom was
in Anderson's saloon on that day and
that he was adso in other saloons, that
he became badly intoxicated and had to
be put to bed.
At 10 o'clock tonight the jury returned
a verdict of not guilty for Anderson.
Senator Rand and Judge Clifford
made an effort to prove that there was
a conspiracy on the part of Sheriff
Brown to procure the conviction of
Anderson and others: that the Sheriff
had supplied the witness, Renstrom,
with money to y liquor. This evi
dence "was not offered, as it developed
later that the witnesses depended on
were not In the city. They were sent
for. however, and it is likely that the
attempt to prove a conspiracy will be
tried tomorrow when some of the
otner cases are up.
In behalf of the defense .it was shown
that Anderson was sick in bed at the
time of the alleged ofTense and had not
been in the saloon for scvera1 days be
fore and for several days after: that he
had instructed his bartender not to al
low minors in the saloon. The bartend
er swore that he had not noticed Ren
strom in the saloon, and did not be
lieve he was there on the day named
or any other day.
Renstrom said ho had worked in the
mines, earned $3 per day and that at
that time, not having shaved, he had
been taken to be 21 years or older. The
defense made a strong plea to the ef
fect that as the indictment charged
Anderson with committing the offense
and it was shown that he was sick in
bed he could not justly be held respon
sible for the presence of the boy in his
saloon, if he was there, a fact which
the defense disputed.

the indoor meets and athletic exhibitions
at the university have been finished dur
ing the coming two weeks. Dr. Rlller will
keep the students busy preparing for the
big circus which they are planning to
give April 15. Nearly the entire student
body will participate in the affair, women
as well as men. Ah it Is the first thing
of Its kind that has been attempted by
any of the colleges in the Northwest, its
outcome is anxiously awaited by the col
legians. Dr. Roller, however, has given such
affairs before with great success, and is
being assisted by Professor Lee M.
Daggy. The students have taken hold of
the affair with a keen interest and have
been working hard for it for the last
It is the aim to have the circus re
semble an up-to-date show In every par
ticular. Different students have been al
loted certain divisions of the work and
are determined that their respective de
partments shall be the best. George Bald
win, one of the prominent musical club
members, has charge of the concert and
is doing his utmost to have a perfor
mance which will Induce the crowd to
stay after the big show. William Brin
ker, one of the best-known athletes at
the university, is manager of the big side
shows. He has, he claims, many ani
mals already made up and Intends on

WIDOW TIED KEEN'S NECKTIE
Divorce Defendant Admits This, but
Says Wife Was Jealous.
HILLSBORO, Or.. April 3. (Special.)
The third day of the Keen damage trial
ended this evening, and it will take the
better part of tomorrow to get the case
to the jury. -W. B. Keen, who married
Mrs. Reynolds and from whom Mrs. Keen
No. 1 desires a $25,000 payment for dam
ages, was the star witness today. He
related how he went from Woodlawn to
Cedar Mill and rented the Brugger farm,
Mrs. Reynolds being an heir. While Keen
was at Cedar Mill Anderson Reynolds
died, and Keen alleges that he was se
lected by the widow as confidential ad
viser; that he made a two or three weeks
visit to Wasco County with the widow,
and his wife consented to this. He re
lated how they remained a week at The
Dalles, visiting with the widow's rela
tives after their business was concluded;
how they returned to Portland, and then
to Cedar Mill; how that evening he went
to see a sick horse, and finally ate sup
per at the widow's house, although he
was within a few minutes' walk of his
home and had not seen his wife to talk
to her. He swore that Mrs.. Reynolds had
never made advances to him, and that
she did not act familiarly with him at a
Portland hotel in the presence of his
daughterj Sadie Keen, as she testified the
other day. He said that Mrs. Reynolds
might have tied his necktie the next
morning, but that was all. He said that
his wife was unreasonably jealous of the
widow, and his daughter flippantly called
Mrs. Reynolds, now Mrs. Keen, the "old
Keen flatly contradicted several wit
nesses for the defense and alleged that
he saw Mrs. Reynolds but two or
three times between leaving Mrs. Keen
No. 1 and the day when he was served
with the divorce summons. The case will
BURGLARS LOCK UP THE COOK
Lone Woman in Restaurant Is Seized
and Put on Ice.
TACOMA. Wash., April 3.-(Special.)
A sensational robbery of the City Restau
rant occurred early this morning by two
bold robbers and was reported to the police
soon after the crime was committed.
Miss Jessie Jensen, the night cook, who
declared she had been locked in the Ice
chest by the thieves and had finally es
caped by prying open the door with a
cleaver which she found Inside, gave the
facts to the officers. She was alone in
the place at the time.
According to the woman's story, the
men gained admittance by prying open
the rear door, evidently under the im
pression that the place.' was entirely de
serted at night. One of the intruders,
Miss Jensen stated, wore a red handker
chief over the lower part of his face,
and the other had his face blackened.
Upon entering the kitchen one of the
men seized Miss Jensen, forced her Into
the large ice chest, and locked the door
upon her. It appears from subsequent
investigation that they then rifled the
cash register, securing 510 in cash. They
escaped by the rear door.

that it shall become void. The decisions

combe made application to defendant for
$2000 Insurance on his life, payable to his
wife, Idonia. It was stipulated, among
other things, that the policy should not
be in force until the premium had been
paid, and that no suit should be brdught
under said contract after the lapse of
two years from the time the cause of

On July 3. 1S96. Stinfchcombe died. On
March 22, 1900, his widow requested the
company to send her blanks for proof of
death, which they did, and she trans
mitted the proofs April 26. The com
pany made no objections thereto, but re
tained the proofs, and this action was
brought July 6, 1300.
The complaint set out the policy In
full, showing, among other things, that
the premium was to be paid on May 5
of each year, and the policy should be
come void unless It was so paid, except
that a month's grace should be allowed,
subject to interest charge of 5 per cent
per annum during the delinquency. The
policy also provided that within one year
after death proof of death must be fur
nished. The complaint contained two causes
of action, the first setting forth the facts
of the contract, death, nonpayment, etc.,
and the second the same as the first, ex
cept that It was alleged that the com
pany had waived the provision that proof
must be furnished within a year. A de
murrer was sustained as to the first cause,
but overruled as to the second, and at
the trial a non-suit was granted, where
upon plaintiff appeals.
The opinion of the Supreme Court gives
a lengthy discussion of the questions in
volved. Briefly stated, the opinion shows
t.iat the two years premium was paid
July 24, 1S94. which would cover the
period to July 24, 1S36. If now effect is
to be given to the provision that the
policy shall become void if the premium
be not paid May 5, the company will be
receiving the premium from May 5 to
July 24, without the insured receiving any
insurance. The court says:
"There is here a palpable incongruity,
and If the company's contention be the
correct one, it Is perfectly manifest that
It will be fraught with injustice to the
The court construes the contract to re
main In force for the full period for which
the premium was paid. The policy,
was therefore in force when the Insured
died on July 3, 1S96.
Upon the other question, the Supreme
Court holds that failure to make proof

forfeiture, for the policy provided for
no penalty of that kind. The company
having received and retained the proofs
without objection must be deemed to
have approved them. The cause of ac
tion accrued when the proofs were de
livered and approved, and this action
having been commenced within two years
thereafter, a good cause of action was
stated and the demurrer to the first
cause of action should have been over
ruled. Fleishman vs Meyer.
I. Fleishman and D. J. Guggenhlme,
appellants, vs. Meyer & Kyle, re
spondents, from Lane County. J. W.
Hamilton, Judge. Reversed and new trial
ordered. Opinion by Justice Moore.
This was an action by Guggenhlme &
Co., of San Francisco, to recover damages
against Meyer Sc. Kyle, of Mapleton.
Lane County, to recover damages for
the breach of a contract to deliver 10,000
pounds of cascara bark, at 3 3-8 cents a
pound. The defense was that according
to the contract the bark was to be
shipped by boat, but at the stipulated
time the Sluslaw Bar was In such con
dition that boats could not pass over,
and that defendants were excused from
filling the contract at the appointed
time because prevented by the act of
God. 'Another defense was that the at
torneys for Guggenhlme & Co. had com
promised the matter by accepting a lesser
quantity at a later date. The plaintiffs
were defeated in the Lower Court and'
The Supreme Court holds that the
condit'on of the Sluslaw bar was no
defense, for the bark could have been
hauled out to the railroad and shipped
in that manner.
The case Is reversed because of error
at the trial In Instructing- the jury. The
court refused plaintiff's request to in
struct the Jury that in the absence of
an express autnority the nttorney-at-law
has no right to compromise or set
tle a claim for his client. The statutes
of California not having- been put in
evidence, the Supreme Court follows
the common law and holds that the in
struction should have been Riven as
requested. The court says, however,
that authority to compromise a claim
will be implied in the regular course of
pending- suits and actions, when an at
torney has neither time nor opportuni
ty to consult with his client, whose
interests would be Imperilled by delay.

That Liquozone Does What Medicine Cannot Do. A 50c Bottle Free
There are at least three million homes
in America which know from experience
the value of Liquozone. Some of those
home? use It simply to keep well, as we
do. But tens of thousands have lives
that were saved by it.
Yet some remain sick with a germ dis
ease while all of those millions know that
Liquozone cures. Some still cling to drugs
for what drugs never can do. They are
wronging themselves. Their own friends
their own neighbors can tell them the
way to get well.
We ask those edek ones to write us. We
will buy for each one "the first bottle of
Liquozone, and pay the druggist ourselves
for it. Each is welcome to try it at our
expense, then let the results decide about
using it afterwards.
Don't try to kill Inside germs with
drugs, for you cannot. Don't cling blind
ly to old methods of treatment, used be
fore germs were discovered. Let us prove
what this new way means to you.
Liquozone is not made, like medicine,
by compounding acids and drugs; nor is
there any alcohol in it. Its virtues are
derived solely from gas, made In large
part from the best oxygen producers. The
process of making takes 14 days, and re
quires immense apparatus. At the end of
two weeks, we get one cubic inch of
Liquozone for each 1,250 cubic Inches of

and tlje rights In other countries have sold
for proportionate pums. We mention this
fact to indicate the value of Liquozone
the value to you. Men have never before
rpaid such a price for any discovery used
in the cure of sickness.
We need not tell you that we proved
Liquozone well before buying It. For
years it was tested through physicians
and hospitals. In this country and others.
It was employed in every stage of every
germ disease: in all the most difficult
cases obtainable. With thousands of sick
ones, considered incurable, we proved that
It did what medicine could not do. Then,
and then only, did we pay the price.
Since then we have spent nearly $2,000,
000 to. make LIquoionc known. We have
bought the first bottle and given it free
to every elck one we learned of. These
people told others and the others told
others. The result is that Liquozone is
now more widely employed than any med
icine ever was. And no one can doubt
that It is doing more for sick humanity
than all the drugs in use combined.
Kills Inside Germs
The greatest value of Liquozone lies In
the fact that it kills germs In the body
without killing the tissues, too. And no
man knows another way to do It. Any
drug that kills germs is a poison, and it
cannot be taken Internally. For that rea
son, medicine is almost helpless in any
Liquozone is a germicide so certain that
we publish on every bottle an offer of
51000 for a disease germ that It cannot
kill. Yet It Is not only harmless, but of
wonderful benefit better than anything
else In the world for you. No one Is so
well that he cannot be helped by It.
The reason Is that germs are vegetables;
and Liquozone like an excess of oxygen-
