The desire and effort of early candi
dates to get on the head of the ballot,
a. much-coveted place, has brought
about all kinds of trouble which may
lead to legal proceedings unless the
tangle can be atraightened out by City
Attorney Grant, to whom It waa sub
mitted yesterday by City Auditor Bar
bur. Attwnoy'n Rollnjc Asked.
Mr. Grant has been asked to decide
whether petitions secured before the
polls closed Saturday night are legal:
Blso whether petitions could be filed
legally after the office of the City Au
ditor had closed. Other questions asked
are: "Can the City Auditor receive
nominating petitions at any hour and
any place?" and "Are namea secured on
petitions on Sunday legal?"
Saturday night a number of candi
dates filed their petitions a minute or
two after the closing of the polls. The
names were secured before the polls
closed. These candidates maintain that
they were within the law in getting
the names before the charter was or
flcially adopted: others say not. Latr
Saturday night a number of candidates
filed names which were secured after
the polls closed. It Is questioned
whether these candidates could file le
gally on Saturday night, when the Au
ditor's office closed at noon Saturday.

the fund which Is being raised by the
Methodist, Christian. United Brethren
and Baptist churches for their legal
fight which has been started against
the local saloons.
Two members of the Christian
Church congregation, Mrs. E. A. Grlf
fiin and Mrs. Lem Grifham. started to
day to cultivate a neighbor's garden.
It took them half a day to complete
their task and secure the contract
price, 82. the amount they pledged
themselves to raise for the fund. Miss
Leola Egbert will cut wood on her
homestead and sell enough of the tim
ber to secure her dolalr for the cause.
Other women have planned equally
unique ways to make money.
The four churchea have filed proceed
ings in Circuit Court, hoping they may
be able to secure an Injunction enjoin
ing the City Council from Issuing sa
loon licenses In the future. If the
churches win their case the Council
will be enjoined from granting liquor
permits June s30 thla year and The
Dalles will then become a "dry" town,

cided at a special election.
The saloonmen have threatened. If

LIE PROVES MAN'S SANITY
Judge Rules Ability to Deceive Es
tablishes Mental Capabalitly.
KANSAS CITY. Mo, May 6. When a
man 77 years old writes love letters,
the fact does not constitute evidence
of mental Incapacity.
Judge Ellison laid down that ruling
in a decision handed down In the Kan
sas City Court of Appeals today.
The case was one from Boone County,
in which a son sought to break his
father's will. .The love letters were
Introduced to show that the testator
was Incapable of making a will. In the
letters the writer said he was only 65
years old. Judge Ellison held that this
misrepresentation had nothing to do
with the case. The fact that he was
able to deceive, the Judge said, showed
that he was in possession of all his

CHIEF JUSTICE DISSENTS
Sbeppard Holds That Entire Decis

WASHINGTON, May 5. Contempt of
court judgments against Samuel Gom
pers, John Mitchell and Frank Mor
rison, the labor leaders, for their vio
lation of a court's Injunction In the
noted Buck Stove and Range case were
affirmed today by the District Court
of Appeals, but the Jail sentences im
posed were held to have been too se
vere, so the court reduced Gompers'
sentence from one year to 30 days and
decreed that Mitchell and Morrison
should only be fined $500 each. The
lower court sentenced Mitchell to nine
months And Morrison to six.
The Supreme Court of the United
States undoubtedly will be asked, again
to review the decision.
Court la Divided.
Unlike previous decisions in this
case which have been unanimously
against the labor leaders, the Court of
Appeals was divided. Chief Justice
Sheppard dissented, held that the wnoie
decision should be reversed, that con
tempt of a Federal Court was a crim
inal offense, and that the statute of
limitations had run in the case.
Justice Van Orsdel, who concurred
In the majority opinion, held that tne
refusal of Mitchell to assure the lower
court of his intention, to obey the
mandate of inferior courts in the- fu
ture was Important "in establishing

Apology Held to Be Admission.
With that the dissenting Chief Jus

"I am unable to see how the refusal
to apologise for an act, the commission
of which has been expressly denied,
shows a reprehensible Intent or temper.
On the contrary. It seems to me the
natural conduct of a self-respecting
man. Having sworn that he neither

Merriam Declares Young Wife Was
Too Friendly With Member of
Staff of Governor of Louisiana
While He Was in Texas.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 5. (Special)
The sensational divorce case of Cap
tain Henry O. Merriam,, of the United
States Army, against Bessie C. Mer
riam, was called In Judge Graham's
court this morning. For an hour be
fore the opening of court the 10-year-old
daughter of the couple. Charlotte,
sat in the courtroom unnoticed by her
father, notwithstanding the fact that
he had not seen the child for two years,
and In face of the fact that Captain
Merriam says that the sole object of
his suit is the desire to secure absolute
custody of the child.
Mrs. Merriam entered the courtroom
with her attorneys, Barclay Henley.
Judson W. Reeves. John F. Engleke,
Prosecuting Attorney of Indianapolis;
her mother. Mrs. AC D, Ray, and her
daughter, the latter a beautiful child
with long blond curls. Captain Mer
riam was accompanied by his attorney,
Walter Llnforth; his sister. Mrs. Frank
Schultz, and his futher. Major Lewis
Judge Graham called the couple to
the stand and asked them to become
reconciled for the sake of the child.
Wife Willing- to Be Reconciled. .
. Mrs. Merriam, In a ' shaking voice,
said that she was willing, but her hus
band said that such a course would be
impossible. He avoided his wife's gaze"
and never throughout the time she
was on the stand did he raise his eyes.
The formal complaint In the case is
"extreme cruelty," but the documents
mention at length Major Clarence Mur
phy, on the staff of the Governor of
Louisiana, with whom it Is alleged Mrs.
Merriam was unbecomingly friendly
while her husband was away with his
regiment in Texas in the four months
of March, April, May and June In 1911.
The misconduct Is alleged to have
taken place at Jackson Barracks, near
Quarrel Aired in Court.
The entire morning session was oc

of the allegations connecting Mrs. Mer

latter attempted to shoot Captain Mer

forth, and even at these times Captain'
Merriam did not unfold his arms from
the military posture which he took on
resuming his seat after refusing to
hear of a reconciliation. His wife's
tears moved him only to suggest other
questions to Llnforth to ask.
At other times she clenched the arms
of her chair and bit her lips to keep
from weeping. Her tensity at times
was such that she seemed on the verge
of fainting, but a broadside of inquisi

The testimony revealed about the

husband's absence, and the names of
Army surgeons and other physicians
were Introduced in an effort to prove
that she had submitted to an opera
tion. In the face of this Intimation her
lips quivered pitifully, but her Indigna
tion at each succeeding question saved
her from utter breakdown.
Mrs. Merriam denied that she had
ever met Major Murphy alone or clan
destinely; denied that she had ever
been automobiling with him except in
the company of the wife of Major Kcp-
