Phtsiciain AVins Suit. A lawsuit was
tried j'esterday morning before Justice
Waldemar Seton. in the East Side court,
of interest to physicians. Dr. Clayton
Seaman sued 'J. W. Brooks and wife for
J90. a balance of $150 alleged to be due
him for performing a very danpjerous
surgical operation on Mrs. Brooks at
Good Samaritan JloppitaJ. The testimony
for plaintiff was that the agreement with
Brooks was that Dr. Seaman should per
form the operation for 51o6 and that
Brooks should pay the hospital fees. It
was in evidence that physicians had in
formed Mrp. Brooks that the operation
would cost her $500. The defense was that
Dr. Seaman entered Into a verbal con
tract to perform the operation and pay
the hospital fees for $100. Brooks swore
that this was the contract and showed
receipts for hospital fees to the amount
of $40 and receipt from Dr. Seaman for
$G0. After hearing the testimony and
arguments Justice Seton gave Dr. Sea
man judgment for $50. He commented on
the Indefinite nature of the contract, and
suggested that it would have been easy
to have put the agreement in writing.
Ship Cattlk to Portland. Every
freight train entering Portland over the
O. R. & X. Is bringing cars of cattle and
sheep to the slaughter houses at Trout
dale, where meat Is prepared for the Port
land and Sound markets. With the excep
tion of fatted, feed yard products, no
animals are leaving the ranges, as stock
is generally too poor to ship, it being
midway between the Spring and Fall
movements. Such is the demand and good
prices existing on the Coast that no fat
-cattle are being shipped East, says H. B.
MUHh. livestock agent for the O. R. &
X. The movement of sheep lo the East
will not begin until after shearing in the
Spring, when it will continue all of the
Summer and Fall. "Feeders." cattle
needing fattening, will also commence to
move Bast early in the Summer.

BOARD OF KDUCATIOX WILL
CONDEMN CKUSIII2D ItOCK.
Material Now in Use on IMiiygroiinUs
:it Sliatttick School Proves
, The attention of I. N. Klotechtter, of the
Portland School Board, was called to the
grounds of the Shattuck School yesterday
by a resident of that neighborhood, who
complained that the crushed rock ueed on
the playgrounds was most undesirable.
As the grounds surrounding the school
.re small and a lawn is impracticable, a
number of schemes have been tried during
the past few years to harden the grounds
and prevent an accumulation of s&ft mud
In rainy weather.
Whe,n the board flooring which original
ly covered it was removed, river sand
was iTosortod to. but it was found thai it
adhered to the pupils' shoes and was
tracked, into the building in such quanti
ties that It had to be removed. Crushed
rock was then suggested, and the School
Board determined to give it a trial. .
That this is also impracticable is now
evident, and Mr. Flelschner will bring
the matter before the School Board at a
special meeting tills afternoon, recom
mending that the rock be removed at
once. Some of the parents of the Shat
tuck School pupils called on Principal
Draper Tuesday to make a complaint
about the rock. They said that the small
pieces of rock were ruinous to the shoes
and overshoes worn by the children, and
that their shoe bills Imd been increased
this Winter at an alarming rate on ac
count of it.
The fact that the rock Is carried out
onto the pavement by the pupils wmk an
other reason for objection, it being de
cidedly unpleasant to walk upoH. Mr.
Draper, having no jurisdiction in the mat
ter, referred the complainants to the
School Board, and they went to Mr.
Flelschner with the matter.
Mr. Flelschner immediately made per
sonal investigation, and states that he is
convinced that the complaints are well
grounded, and that the crushed rock must
go. He will bring the matter up this aft
ernoon, and endeavor to have the board
take action causing the removul of the
rock without delay.
Another matter which will be brought
up is furnishing the Chapman School
with new and up-to-date seats, the old
ones being worn out and uncomfortable.
The School Board is making every ef
fort to keep the Portland schools In a fine
condition, with modern appliances and
furnishings, and every well-grounded com
plaint meets with immediate investiga
tion by the members.

of Installing the block system in busi

the new system is the Orcgonlan build

ready been installed, the work being
completed during the past ten days. The
block system does away with visible
.wires. It sends multiple cables under
ground through the basement, distribu
tion of wires being made from successive
floors. This affords a much closer and
more effective service. The Oregonian

PROOF IS ASKED FOR.
Liquor Dealers Issue a Challenge lo
PORTLAND, Jan. 2i. (To the Editor.)
Two well-known preachers of this cltv,
the Rev. J. W. Brougher and thT Rev.
Clarence True WllEon. have recently made
the following statements to their congre
gations and to the newspapers:
"The liquor men have been laying
plans to trap any one of five prominent
pastors in this city in order to start a
scandalous report about them, and vo
break the force of the preachers fight on
the amendment to the local option law."
Rev. Clarence True Wilson.
"The preachers of this city have oc
cur ed evidence showing that some of the
liquor dealers have been planning to got
up some sort of a scandalous report
against one of the prominent preacher? of
this city, or tho Y. M. C. A. secretary.
We have the evidence concerning this
matter." Rev. J. Whitcomb Brougher.
As thh association has taken the lead
in local option matters, the natural in
ference Is that these preachers desire
to make people believe that we arc seek
ing to attack their virtue.
It is our belief that these two reverend
gentlemen made these statement? to at
tract public attention and to arouse pre
judice against the local option law
amendment. We do not know of any
plot against their virtue and do not be
lieve they do. We do know absolutely
that so far as this association or any of
its members may be concerned, any such
accusation I untrue and absurd. We
would be delighted to sec them produce
the proof which they claim they have.
But we are satisfied they will not do this.
Of eimilar character i the statement
made on Sunday by the Rev. W. H. Sel
leck. of Salem, who said he was "re
liably Informed that the liquor dealers'
association would spend 5225.000 to se
cure the adoption of the amendment to
the local option law." and. said this truth
ful person, "the money was to be spent
principally in bribing newspapers."
The liquor merchants, like other people,
may have their faults, but they have not
yet stooped to tactics of misrepresenta
tion, slander and abuse.
And in conclusion wc beg to call the at
tention of the three reverend gentlemen
mentioned to the Bible, at the twentieth
chapter of Exodus, where it Is said "Thou
shall not bear false witness- against thy
neighbor." W. J. VAN SCHUYVER.
