Boy Supports Family.
Case 4. Boy of 16 supports family.
Twelve mouths to be fed and the bur
den of feeding them resting upon a boy
only 16 years old. That is the problem
that ihe Associated Charities found in
one home from which the appeal for

best he can, but his earnings are only
$5 a week. This is the only money that
Is coming into the family at all. The

a bit more cheerful for them. These
families were reported to the Charities

UTS' BASKETS READY
THANKSGIVING DINNERS TO BE
PROVIDED 60 NEEDY FAMILIES.
Thanksgiving day began yesterday at
the offices of the Associated Charities,
for the management had the most
promising opening of the campaign for
the Christmas relief fund to be thank
ful for since the launching of the plan
two years ago.
As a matter of fact, friends of the
Associated Charities had been holding
In mind the Christmas relief work, by
which the organization aims to extend
Christmas cheer throughout the year
among the .poor of the city, for months
and had their donations ready even be
fore the present campaign started.
Mrs. Henry La. Corbett, who headed
the list of contributors this year, sent
in her gift a month ago, with the stip
ulation that it should be held for spe
cial use as part of the Christmas re
Holiday Outlook Cheery.
"The promptness and generosity of
the responses that have come in al
ready is astonishing and is even more
promising than we had dared to hope,"
said V. It. Manning, secretary of the
Charities, yesterday. "Probably at no
previous time have the citizens of fort
land been subjected to so many de
mands from all sources for donations
to relief funds and charitable funds
of all kinds. In spite of this they ap
pear to be rallying to the support of
the Christmas relief fund with bigger
donations and more of them than in
either of the two years that have pre
ceded." Among the donations listed yesterday
was the Sunday school celebration for
November 22 at the Hast Side Baptist
Bunday School, which was turned over
entirely to the Charities for. use on the
Christmas relief fund by F. E. A.
Smith, of the Sunday school, and Rev.
W. O. Shank, pastor.
The new grocery department, which
has been established to help out in the
relief work, also is promising to be a
most important factor and with the
cash contributions is coming a long list
of donations of foodstuffs to the groc
Oat-ol-Town Folk Help.
That Mrs. W. F. Boley and J. H.
Layne, of North Plains, have organized
a great campaign in that city to ob
tain clothing and grocery supplies to
be sent to the Charities is the report
in a letter received yesterday. The
roods will be assembled December 2
and packing cases will be supplied by
Mays Brothers, of North Plains. The
donations of the residents of North
Plains will be shipped to the Charities
in Portland December 4.
Among the supplies sent in yesterday
were $15 worth of groceries from D.
C. Burns, S3 worth of groceries from
G. A. Gilbert, a big supply of veget
ables from a farmer who declined to
give his name, a sack of rice and two
crates of canned goods from KLelly-
Clark, who promised more supplies
Here are some of the needy cases to
be benefited by the contributions of the
people of Portland . to the Christmas
relief fund of the Associated Charities:
Family In Great Need.
Case 1. No work; four children to
support. Not a stick of wood nor a
crust to eat and no money with which
to buy either was the condition of one
man who finally appealed in despera
tion to the Associated Charities. lie
Caaea of Need and Destitution Are Be

Need In One Home.
Thanksgiving dinners for 60 poor
families in Portland are to be put up
and distributed by the Muts today.
The material for filling the baskets
is nearly all assembled, but the com
mittee still iB in need of considerable
Incidents of Btriking interest con
tinue to occur at- the headquarters of
the Muts. One woman brought in a
valuable auto robe, asking that the
Muts sell it for her. A few months
ago the family was in good circum
stances, but through the trouble in
Mexico lost practically everything.
Another caller at the headquarters
was a steeplejack, who said that he
had nothing to give, but that If the
Muts would find him work in his line,
he would donate two days' wages to
the relief work they are carrying on.
He wants a job painting steeples, flag
staffs or sawmill stacks.
Among the applicants yesterday for
whom the Muts are arranging to care,
was a crippled boy 11 years old, ask
ing for a new pair of crutches, as he
had outgrown the ones he has. Two
boys asked for Jobs to make it pos
sible for them to care for the family.
There are six children and the father
is an invalid.
Another visitor was an elderly wom
an, whose only means of earning her
living is by making over feathers. The
Muts will try to encourage friends to
turn as much work her way as pos
sible, so that she can earn money to

Supreme Court Recommends
Damage Suit to Cover AH
Loss in Military Raid.
PLEA CALLED TOO LATE
Saloonkeeper Told Injunction Has
Power to Stop Executive, but Not
Asked Soon Enough Use of
SALEM. Or., Nov. 24. (Special.) Be
cause the alleged illegal acts were com
mitted before the suit was begun, the
Supreme Court today. Justice Burnett
writing the opinion, decided in favor of
Governor West in the case of William
Wiegand, a saloonkeeper of Copperfield,
who asked for an Injunction against the
executive and his agents restraining
them from confiscating his stock when
martial law was declared In that Dlace.
The court affirms the decree of Circuit
It is suggested by the court that inas
much as the application for an injunc
tion was brought too late, the remedy
for the plaintiff is through a suit for
damages. The opinion says:
Suit for Damage Recommended.
"In the present case it is manifest
that the plaintiff kept his goods
lor sale and that some amount
of money would reasonably satisfy him
it ne parted with the entire business.
Under such circumstances the remedy
at law whereby in some manner dam
ages could be awarded him is fully
adequate for the redress of his griev
ances. This being the case, equity,
which always uses the remedy spar
ingly, will not countenance government
Dy injunction, which, in some respects,
is as little to be desired as the arbitrary
exercise or military power.
"In every proper case," says the opin
ion. "an injunction is as available as any
other remedy against public officials
who violate private rights. In other
words, the individual who, for the time
being, is a public officer is quite as
amenable to the law as any private
Property Not Injured.
In another part of the opinion Jus
tice Burnett says:
"Laying aside as negligible fustian
the proclamation of martial law and
the like, the essence of the answer is
found in the allegation that "none of
the property of said plaintiff has been
destroyed but is being held by the
militia to be disposed of as directed by
the commander-in-chief of the military
forces of the state.' This is a suf
ficient answer to the plaintiff's fear
of confiscation and must be admitted
to be true when assailed by a de
murrer. However we may characterize
the occurrences described in the plead
lngs, yet we cannot presume that the
defendants will do any unlawful act
in the future. Some facts must be
alleged, showing that such result is
the purpose of the defendants."
