Ha.iley and others, charging contempt
of court in diverting water. The trial
was continued until today, and is likely
to be bitterly fought. In his answer to
the complaint, Mr. Hanley denies all
actions alleged by the plaintiff, and de
clares that he has gone out of his way
to be neighborly and to end, "this
foolish hostility." He declares the live
stock concern is doing all in Its power
to monopolize the waters of Silvies
River, and is trying to terrify all who

WOOD CONTRACT FAILS
EMERGENCY ORDINANCE DRAFTED
IS OPPOSED BY MR. BIGELOW.
Do In j- May Interfere With Sales and Em
barrass Mr. Brewster; Had Ordered
Contractor to Start Work.
When City Commissioner Bigelow
changed his attitude yesterday on the
pioposition of awarding a contract for
the hauling of wood produced at the
municipal woodyard near Linnton, he
aroused the wrath of Mayor Albee, and
incidentally tied the matter up so, that
it may be impossible to get the wood
into the city in time for sale for next
It is declared by Mayor Albee and
Commissioners Brewster and Dieck that
Mr. Bigelow concurred in a decision
last week to let Charles R. Hart have
the contract for hauling the wood from
Linnton, where it was cut last Winter
by the unemployed, to the city's pro
posed sales yard at Twenty - seventh
and Savier streets. On the strength of
the unanimous approval of the Council
to the contract plan. Commissioner
Brewster let a contract to Charles R.
Hart and the hauling of the wood was
To make thp rnntrncr valid the n
actment of an ordinance with an emer
gency clause attached was necessary.
This came up for vote yesterday and
required unanimous vote for passage.
Commissioner Bigelow objected to the
enactment of the ordinance, holding out
for readvertlsing for bids. He con
tended that the award of a contract
should be to the lowest bidder, and he
had information to the effect that an
other contractor was willing to make a
bid lower than that submitted by Mr.
Hart, although such bid was not made
when bids first were called for.
The ordinance passed, but the emer
gency clause was stricken off because
of Mr. Bigelow's objection. This
means that it will be SO days before
the contract will go into effect. It is
said that this will make it impossible
to get the wood all into the city before
January 1. which, it is said, will be
after the principal wood-buying season.
When Commissioner Bigelow opposed
the ordinance he aroused the. wrath of
Mayor Albee, who declared that the
contract to Hart had been agreed upon
by all members of the Council. "It's a
strange way xt doing business." said
the Mayor, "but it isn't the first time
the Council has. bad the same ex
perience." The action of Mr. Bigelow. it was
thought, might embarrass either Mr.
Brewster or the Council because of the
fact that Mr. Brewster, on the strength
of the Council's informal sanction of
the contract, let Mr. Hart start hauling
the wood. There are 10,000 cords, val
ued at $22,000.
Spirits Blame Attorney for
Man's Capture by Sheriff.
Leo Polfbm, of Tenino, Invokes Su

Official Found Him to Serve
OREGON CITT. Or., May 7. (Spe
cial.) Spirits were called on by
Leo Polehm. of Tenino, to indicate to
him his betrayer to Sheriff Wilson

papers in a suit brought against

State Bank of Tenino. The spirits,
Polehm said, reported that William

Mr. Polehm came to town on busi
ness and met Attorney Stone on the
street. Mr. Stone, knowing that Polehm
was in danger of being served with
papers, urged him to come to the law
office at once. Within the attorney's
rooms Polehtr's peril was explained,
and he was told that the Sheriff had
been seeking him a long time. Just
as the explanation ended Sheriff Wil
son walked in and served the papers.
"toil got me in here so the Sheriff
could find me," shouted Polehm.
Mr. Stone denied the allegation and
said that he was as much surprised at
the appearance of the Sheriff as was
hi3 client. To settle the matter Mr.
Polehm drew a divining rod from his
pocket, and, holding it before his face,
"Spirits, spirits, indicate to me the
man who betrayed me."
The rod quivered in his grasp, jerked
violently up and down and then pointed
squarely at Mr. Stone's head.
"Ah! You are the man." exclaimed
Polehm. "1 knew it, and the spirits
