tlnbr cutting. Tha Indictments were
diamliwd. Ju.lge Bean saying ha had
no doubt that the atatement of ilr.
i!--"ourt aa to the law waa correct.
In moving for a dlsmlal of the
Hanley raae. Mr. McCourt aal.l. In part:
-In the first pla.-e. Mr. Hanley has
fully aettled hla civil liability for the
timber removed by him. In the next
pla-e. It seems that the Land Depart
ment or the Department of Justice liaa
' been laboring under an error for aome
tine raat In the pro-edure In these
ia,es for tresrasa on timber lands.
Indictment Was Mistake.
The Circuit Court of Appeals for the
Fia'nih Circuit, a few yeara ago. de
n.ied that thla section 5441. so far aa
th public land atatea were concerned,
had been amended or a portion of It
repealed by Implication by the passage
of the timber and atone act. which
prohibits the rutting of timber upon
the public lands for the purpose of ex
port or ml, and provldea a punishment
rf a fine merely: while eectlon 5t of
ta Tie vised Statutes provide Impris
onment and a fine of not lesa than I
don t know whether double or treble
the value of the timber cut.
"Now. In that case. Knlted States vs.
Morgan, tha Circuit Court of Appeala
held that the timber and atone a.-t re
pealed or amended that a- t Insofar aa
1:1 punishment waa concerned, that Is.
tt did away with the Imprisonment al-
together, and that It left the law so
t:ai a person could not be prosecuted
for cuttlnc timber npon the public do
main unlesa be Intended to aril or dla
pone of It.
-In thla case. Mr. Hanley cut thla
timber for tlie-purpoae of ualr.s; It In
a dredge that be waa operating; on
what la known a the 'V Kanch In
Harney County. They war cutting- a
channel through for the purpoae of re
rlalmlns; a ewamp ao that, under that
derloton. Mr. Hanley had no criminal
responsibility whatever and should not
have been Indicted.
-The Land Ivpartment and the De
partment of Justice have been going
ahead for the past few yeara and In
dicting peraona who cut timber upon
the public domain, even for their own
uae. when they cut In excesa of IJO.
without a permit or the consent of the
Secretary of the Interior.
Liability Not Criminal.
-Section S of the act of 11 pro
vides that timber may be cut upon the
public domain for mining-, agricultural
or domestic purposes under rulea and
regulations to be prescribed by the
Secretary of the Interior, and the Sec
retary of the Interior has prescribed a
rule that 130 worth of timber may be
cut by any one person In any one year,
but If more than that ia desired to be
cut. there must be a permit secured or
agreement with the Secretary of the
Interior and Mr. Hanley had no such
agreement. For these reasons. Mr.
Hanley was not liable criminally, and
1 move to dismiss the case.
-Now the aame applies to case of
I'nlted States vs. J. Frank Adams, of
Klamath Fa 11a. Mr. Adams also was
charged with a almllar offenae. His
timber was cut for the purpose of
fencing a la. go tract of land owned by
Mm. and for the same reason that case
should be dismissed. And. notwith
standing the fact that he has offered
heretofore to plead guilty and pay his
fine. It would not be proper. In my
judgment, to take the fine from htm
under the circumstances of the case."
rOIXT OF RESIDENCE RAISED

Federal Judge Bean has under advlac
wint the question whether a resident of

CHANGED ESTIMATE VEXES
Hall-Street Lot Owners Declare
$ I 7,030 Additional Called For Is
Imposition and Say Morris
Knew of Defects In Work.
Charges of collusion snd consplrscy
between City Engineer Morris and the
contracting firm of Gleblsch & Jp.lln
are made the basis of a suit filed with
the Circuit Court yesterday by property
owners on Hall street, wherein It Is
asked that the city be restrained from
collecting for street improvements re
The action, which Is brought by F.
I. McKenna, II. M. Tomllnson. F. I.
Fuller, and a score; of other property
owners, marks the beginning of a legal
contest-that promises to give the courts
considerable activity for some time to
come for the Executive Board has al
ready Indorsed the conduct of the City
Engineer In the matter and the City
Council has passed the necessary ordi
nance providing- for the collection of
sums sufficient to pay off the Indebt
edness for Improvements.
The Improvements affect property
owners between Fourteenth and Six
teenth streets on Hall. It Is charged
that the original estimate made by the
City Engineer for the work was $13,
5S. The contracting firm, which was
the only firm to submit a bid for the
work, took the contract for $11.905. SJ.
Afterwards the scope and extent of the
work was wholly changed, the com
plaint acts up, and the City Engineer
filed a corrected estimate, calling for an
expenditure of $30,844.
No Notices Received.
It Is contended by the complaining
property owners that the first estimate
was in reality excessive. As to the In
crease they say they received no notice
of the Increase and so had no oppor
tunity of remonstrating. The addition
al work is of no benefit to them, they
The ehsrge Is then msde that the
contractors failed utterly to live up to
the original contract which called for
a macadam road, among other things.
The complaint recites that Instead of a
macadam road the firm constructed a
roadway from unevenly broken stone,
very small quantities of sand and very
large quantities of ordinary yellow
clay. This wss wilful and Intentional
violation of contract. It Is charged, and
waa performed with the full knowledge
and consent of the City Engineer. The
cost was not more than half the bill
presented, so the complaint estimates.
Sidewalks Are Fa ally.
Complaint la made, too, of the qual
ity of sidewalks, curblnga and guttera
Installed by the contracting company.
Already these Improvements have com
menced sagging and are really unfit
for travel at the present time, it Is
As to the acceptance of the work by
the Mayor's Executive Board. -It Is
charged that the acceptance waa made
entirely on the report of Engineer
Morris and without personal examina
tion by the members of the board. The
Council, in making the levy to pay for
the work, was fully advised of the pro
tests and complaints, the complaint
says. The whole transaction is set
down as a violation of the rights ex
tended property owners under the state
constitution. The property owners sig
nify in their complaint, a willingness to
pay the original price as estimated by
the Engineer, but not a dollar more.
An order of court ia asked restraining
the Auditor from Issuing liens against
the property and setting aside thejevy
made by the City Council In ordinance
MINIMUM PENALTY TOO HIGH
Judge Morrow Scores Framers of
Law in Sentencing Highwayman.
Ten years as a minimum penalty for
highway robbery is too much. In the
opinion of Circuit Judge Morrow, who
mildly scored the frame i of the law yes
terday In passing sentence on Pat Mo
dure, a young highwayman.
"I think the Legislature was led astray
by sentiment," said the Court. "There
should be a lesoer minimum than ten
years for such offenses."
Young McClure was found guilty of
having engaged with Walter Kerrchner
In two holdups. Kerschner, a pugilist,
was recently sentenced to a term of 12
yeara by Judge Morrow. But McClure
displayed some very good qualities. It
was his first time In trouble and his past
record was found to he without blemish.
Judge Morrow recently eaid he hated 1o
sentence the man, but since a Jury had
found him guilty there was no alterna
tive. "Ten years Is a long time to send this
man to the penitentiary." aald Judge
Morrow In passing sentence. 'There
should be a shorter term, but the court
has no discretion. The very shortest
term I can Impose Is ten years."
McClure may avoid the penitentiary
yet. however, as the authorities have re
lented considerably In his favor. Judge
Morrow has taken a personal Interest in
the youth and a new trial has been
Wife Charges Cruelty.
Charging that her husband is enjoy
ing comfortable means while she is
penniless with their four children to

an action for divorce and division of
property In the Circuit Court yesterday
against Emll Zlnk. In her complain
Mrs. Zlnk charges that her husband Is
of violent temper and that some time
ago he ran her off the place with her
children, ranging In years from 19 to
13 years, first beating the entire family
In a brutal manner.
He has at least $3000 In cash and
property worth $3200, she charges,
while she Is penniless. Before the fam
ily breakup he even borrowed from her
the $140 she had saved through econ
omy and self-denial in many years.
She asks Judgment for $140 In addition
to a divorce and a suitable property
settlement. The couple was married in
Ruasla 22 years ago.
Action Brought Following Suit.
Charles P. Kelly's fighting methods
served to get him Into a $5000 damage
suit as defendant in the Circuit Court
yesterday. As the outcome of a tight
he had some time sgo with George
Holt., action was brought by Holt, who
alleges that -Kelly hit his check and
disfigured him for life. For two weeks
after the encounter Kelly says he was
under the rare of a doctor. He asks an
award of $75. In addition to-the $5000,

RESIGNATIONS TO FOLLOW
Members of Present Board Feel
Chagrined by Intimations la
Xew Bills- "loosely Drawn,"
Supplementary to a bill which, if
passed, would legislate all the present
members of the Board of Education sum
marily out of office, a special' committee
of the Civic Council -has- prepared two
additional measures :one of .which en
larges the . powers, of. a grand Jury . to
such an extent that ,-uch a body would
have the right to employ accountants at
county expense to examine the books of
any public officer about whose honesty
the grand Jury-might be In doubt
The second-proposed bill provides that
any public officer who. directly or Indi
rectly, receives emolument of any kind
other than that to which he Is by law
entitled shall be deemed guilty of a mis
demeanor and shall be punished by a line
of not more than 3500 or Imprisonment
not exceeding six months, or both. The
punishment applies also to the giver of
Intimations" Vex Directors.
Chagrined by the intimations of dis
honesty on the part .of School-Directors
contained in the proposed measures pre
pared by the C'vlc Council committee, I.
N. Fleischner and 11. C. Campbell, two
members of the Board of Education, de
clared yesterday that, their resignations
would become effective immediately If
the bills were passed at Salem.
"I question whether the motive back of
this proposed legislation Is of the kind
generally branded- public-spirited," said
Mr. Flelschnor after making the declara
tion relative to" resigning. "I have rea
son to believe that some who are sup
porting this anti-Board of Education
propaganda are doing o for selfish rea
sons." The terms of the School Directors
whose official life would be 'cut short
