MARKET BLOCK' IN -tfSSS
FRIENDLY SUITIEST grffefMf
Fate of City Auditorium on
Proposed Site Hinges on
Terms of Dedication.
MISTY PAST IS RECALLED
Pioneers of '50s and '60s Disagree
as Tliey Delve Into Memory.
Arguments Conclude Today
and Early Declslou Likely.
Arguments will be heard this morn
ing before Circuit Judge Davis In the
friendly suit which L., M. Lepper is
bringing against the city to test the
legality of using the "Market Block.
so called, for the proposed city audi
torium, on the ground that the prop
erty was dedicated perpetually to the
city to be used for public market pur
poses. Mr. Lepper expects to conclude his
argument this forenoon. I E. Latour
ette. Assistant City Attorney, will
argue this afternoon. Judge Davis ex
pects to decide the case before going
on his vacation.
Interesting testimony was given yes
terday by several pioneer citizens who
were called to the stand by Mr. Lepper
or Mr. Latourette to testify to their
knowledge regarding the terms of the
dedication and the history of the
"'Market Block" property.
ISTt Lessee on Stand.
One of these witnesses was William
Pfunder. the pioneer florist, who
leased the property in 1871 and built
a greenhouse on it. Mr. Pfunder told
how he had planted trees and shrub
bery on the plot, and how nine years
after making the lease he was required
to vacate and his trees were dug up
when the city gave a lease to the Me
chanics' Fair Association, which built a
pavilion covering the entire block. Mr.
Pfunder moved down on Washington
street and many years later sold his
property there at a big price.
Mr. Pfunder's evidence in regard to
his own lease will be taken by the
city to show that there appeared to be
no restriction as to the uses to which
the city nrtght put the property. Mr.
Pfunder himself said that the property
did not get its name of "Market Block"
from being dedicated to market pur
poses, but because it was on Market
street. He said it was known as the
Name Not Given at First.
Another witness was George H.
Hlmes, of the Oregon Historical So
ciety, and an early pioneer. Mr. Himes
testified that he formerly lived In the
vicinity of the property, and that he
passed by It frequently, but that he
didn't remember hearing it called
"Market Block" until the Williams ad
ministration, when a franchise was
given to the Union Market Association
to conduct a public market on it.
He also reviewed the history of the
block, detailing the various uses to
which it had been put by the city.
While the Mechanics' Fair pavilion was
on it, he said, expositions were held
for one week In October each year.
Joseph Buchtel, 84 years old, and a
pioneer of 1S54, and H. w. Frettyraan,
pioneer of 1848, were other witnesses
who disagreed with Mr. Himes and
Mr. Pfunder as to the origin of the
name "Market Block." Mr. Buchtel
was positive that the dedication by the
original proprietors had been for mar
ket purposes. He said that he distinct
ly recalled a conversation with Stephen
Coffin, one of the three, town pro
prietors, 4n which Mr. Coffin said they
bad dedicated It to the city for market
- Mr. Prettyman equally was positive
that It always had been called the
1868 Lawsuit Recalled.
' W. S. Chapman, son Ml William W.
Chapman, who recovered the property
for the city from a squatter after once
lt-had been dedicated, and in 1868 re
dedicated it to the city receiving there
for the consideration of S1200, said his
father had told him at breakfast one
time that the $1200 payment was made
by the city voluntarily for his public
services. The son said he had under
stood that the block was to be used for
Still another witness was the widow
of Sam Church, who had a mattress
factory In the old Mechanics' Pavilion
in the '80s' and '90s. She was put on
the stand by Mr. Latourette for the
purpose of showing one of the many
uses to which the market property had
In the course of the hearing there
was some reminiscing among the
witnesses that was as Interesting as
the testimony. One of the pioneers told
as an aside how the city. In order to
pay Indirectly a subsidy to the origin-"
al builders of the old Fourth-street
steam line, which it could not do open
ly under the charter, once had paida
sum. said to have been $40,000, to the
railroad for building a board fence
around the "Market Block." The rec.-
ords show that such a sum was paid by
a City Council many years ago.

EVANGELIST TURNED DOWN
La Grande Feels Too Poor to Pro
cure Services of Dr. Buljin.
LA GRANDE, Or.. July 15. (Special.)
Dr. Bulgln, the noted evangelist, who
recently turned Pendleton upside down,
morally, through a series of revival
meetings and who has also gained con
siderable noteriety because of his sen
sational methods in evangelistic
campaigns at Salem, The Dalles and
other cities in the Pacific Coast states,
will not be invited to conduct a revival
meeting in La Grande at this time.
This decision was reached at a meet
ing of the congregations of the Meth
odist Episcopal, Baptist, Christian and
Presbyterian churches tonight.
Financial reasons, however, and not
any dislike on the part of the local
pastors or congregations for Dr. Bul
gin. his methods or the results of his
previous work, was the cause of this

"We consider the ordinance a very
drastic piece of legislation," said Dan
J. Malarkey yesterday. "We believe
that the measure was framed for the
benefit of the Unioi. Meat Company,
which is exempted from inspection by
reason of its Federal inspection.

In the complaint it is asserted tnat
the ordinance opens the way for mo
nopoly in the meat business in Port
land, inasmuch as the measure would
put the small dealers out of the mar
ket. Some of the allegations in the com
plaint are that the measure denies to
the plaintiffs the protection of the
law, by depriving them of their prop
erty without due process of law: that
it violates the Constitution of the
United States by dividing meat
dealers Into three arbitrary and un
reasonable classes, one consisting of

regulate the operation of slaughter
houses outside ot the city limits and
that it practically gives the Union

Class A must sign an agreement with
the city, consenting to inspection of
their plants and argreeing to accept

a permit to sell meat In Portland will
be granted. They will not be given
any opportunity to appeal from the
decision of the Inspector, according
to the complaint.
