Linnton People Complain to
Court of Condition of the
FRANCHISE IS VIOLATED
No Attention to ProTlslons Paid by
rnlted Railways County Court
Will Repair Road and Charge
Part to the Company.
. Llnrton people sprang a surprise on
the County Court yesterday morning by"
ftolng In a body, 18 or 20 strong, and.
demanding that action be taken at once
to place the Linnton road In good con
dition. They complained- that the
United Railways Company, after laying
its track, has left the road in a dilapi
dated condition, and said that repairs
should be commenced immediately In
order to place the road In good shape
before the Kail rains begin.
County Commissioner Llghtner said
that tne county will Itself go ahead
with the work on the Linnton road in
about two weeks, and will charge the
railway -company its proportion of the
cost. The company Is compelled by the
terms of Its franchise to haul all the
crushed rock and gravel for the county
Mr. Llghtner believes the county's
new rock crusher near Linnton will be
In operation within a week or two. He
said the complaint of the railway com
pany had been that no rock was avail
able for repairing the road. Judge
Webster said the company had been
Ifrequently requested to level up the
'road If it could not obtain the roclc
!to oomplete the work of macadamizing,
(but that it had failed to do anything
!at all. Ha said the Commissioners had
(talked of cancelling the franchise and
of tearing up the tracks, but that there
I was some question as to whether this
( could lawfully be done.
The franchise, granted by the County
! Court May 16. 1908. provides for the
! feet for Its entire length before any
l railroad construction work Is begun,
the expeuse of thus widening to be
1 borne by the railway company. The
! franchise further states In plain Eng
i lish that the road must be placed in
' as good condition as It was before
ground was broken for the track, and
that the company must charge not mora
than a 5-cent fare between Portland
and Linnton. The railway company
must also construct, gratis, 600-foot
spurs to any rock quarries or gravel
pits maintaineo. oy mo cwunw
Regarding the 6-cent-fare suit, now
pending in the Circuit Court, Mr.
Llghtner says he believes the company
will lose. believe any man who
tenders his 5-cent fare between Port
land and Unnton, and refuses to pay
more. wlK not be ejected from, the com
pany's cars," continued Mr. Llghtner.
It was my understanding when the
franchise was granted that the com
pany was to charge only 6 cents for
the ride between the downtown dis
trict in Portland and the center' of
In case the company falls to meet
any of the provisions of Its franchise.
Including the macadamizing of the road
to the satisfaction of the County Court,
the franchise provides on its face that
It shall be forfeited. It seads:
If at any time, the rnlted Railways
Company shall tall or refuse to do any
thing which It undertakes to do In this
order at the time and In the manner herein
specified, or if It fall to begin the work
of constructing said railway line within the
time above specified, or to complete the
same within 'the time above provided, then
and In that event It shall forfeit all the
rights herein granted, and from the time
of such failure or refusal. It shall be held
and deemed to be a trespasser and all of
its property of every kind rnay b sum-
marlly removed at Its expense by the
county from the right of way hereinabove
granted, and all rights herein granted shall
be forfeited and held for naught.
Commissioner Llghtner said yester
day that the company will be held
'strictly to the provisions of the fran
chise. YOCTH AFTER MEALS XABBED
Applicant ror County Charity Found
to Be Released Prisoner.
It is not likely that Peter Newman,
sent to Kelly Butte from the Municipal
Court for 60 days on account of larceny,
and recently released, will apply again
to the Associated Charities for aid. Giv
ing his name as Charles Foster, he re
cently made application, not for work,
but for meal tickets. From his youthful
appearance he was considered a fit sub
ject for the Juvenile Court to deal with,
and was placed In charge of Chief Pro
bation Officer Teuscher. who decided, on
account of the young fellow's appearance,
to keep him In custody until his identity
could be learned.
Foster told a hard-luck story, but when
confronted with his record, admitted he
had Just been released from the rockpll.
He promised o return to his horn In

POORFARM SALE IX TAXGLE
County Commissioners Refuse to Ac
cept $30,000 Deposit.
A fight is on between the County Court
and V. A. Spanton. who recently pur
chased the old County Poorfarm on the
Canvon road. When the county accepted
his bid. he paid J5000 as an evidence of
sood faith, and was to pay 130.000 witn-
in a specified time, and receive a deed.
In turn he was to give a mortgage for
the payment of the balance of the pur
chase price. $154,000. The $30,000
Davment is now about 30 days overdue.
When Spanton went to the Courthouse
yesterday morning, and laid the sack
containing $."0,000 In gold, and loo inter
est for the time it was overdue, on the
table before Judge Webster and Commls
sloners Llghtner and Barnes, they re
