DAMAGE . SUIT AGAINST TILE
COXCERX IS SETTLED.
$15,000 Judgment Changed After
Defendants Assert Inability
to Prevent Bankruptcy.
A J15.0P0 judgment received by John
K. Melvin, a boy who was badly in
jured by the explosion of a dynamite
cap which he found while playing near
a powder house of the Standard Brick
& Tile company, was settled for $5000
in a (stipulation approved by Presiding
Judge Stapleton yesterday and agreed
upon by the attorneys for the boy and
for the brick and tile concern which
was defendant in a recent suit.
It is set forth in the approval order
that following a two-day argument on
a motion for a new trial, which was
denied, the corporation notified the
plaintiff that it was insolvent and could
not pay judgment, and further that if
pressed it would resort to the bank
ruptcy court. Attorneys Collier & Col
lier, representing the child, investi
gated the matter and found that if
bankruptcy proceedings were forced,
only a small amount would be recov
ered. A stipulation was then agreed
upon settling for $5000 of which $1250
was paid in cash and the remainder
paid in notes secured by a mortgage.
As the attorneys for the boy handled
the case on a contingency basis noth
ing if the suit was lost, 25 per cent of
the amount recovered if settled out of
court, and 40 per cent of the amount
recovered by a trial of the case a fee
of $2000 was allowed by the court.

BRADLEY'S END ACCIDENT
COROXER'S JURY MAKES FIND
IKG IX ROSEBURG CASE.
Theories of Suicide and Foul Play
Rejected Powder Burns
Found on Neck.
ROSEBURG, Or., Aug. 6. (Special.)
That Ai I. Bradley came to his death
from the accidental discharge of a .32
caliber sporting rifle was the verdict
arrived at by the coroner's jury at 6
o'clock this evening. Virtually all the
testimony given tended to show that
Bradley was in the best of spirits when
he jumped into his automobile shortly
after 7 o'clock last evening and started
for the suburbs after first stopping at
his home, where he obtained the rifle.
While the body was some feet from
the gun. the shot that took his life
penetrated the throat, severed the jug
ular vein, fractured the spinal column
and came out on the left at the base
of the brain. Bathers In the river be
low where the accident occurred heard
two shots, and two empty shells were
found. One shot is believed to have
been fired at some water fowl, and the
second just a few moments after, as
Mr. Bradley started toward his car,
which stood on the grade near.
Slight powder burns were found
where the bullet entered the neck.
Several close friends of the dead man
said that he was too careful to have
been the victim of an accident, and in
timate that some one may have shot
him. The Jury, however, was unable
to connect anyone with the tragedy,
and returned a verdict of accidental
shooting. The tragedy occurred just
off the Pacific highway on the grade
overlooking the South Umpqua and the
river dam, where the body was found
a few moments after the shooting by
a. passing truck driver.
