JUDGE FAVORS AMERICAN
AUSTRIAN "KIJT - BY - SIGHT'
PROPRIETOR LOSES CASE.
Disorderly Con-duct Charge Made
Against Highway Workman as
Result of Fight Is Dropped.
When it is a question of judging
between a hard-working American
and an Austrian proprietor of a
'fly-by-night" soft drink stand and
restaurant, Municipal Judge Ross
man made it clear yesterday that he
considered it the duty of an Amer
ican official to favor the American
citizen. 1 -
The result was that the disorderly
conduct case against Dan Kirgo, high
way workman andi American citizen,
who is said to have participated in a
fight Saturday night which wrecked
the establishment of Amet Beco at
65 Couch street, was continued for
sentence by the judge. Beco declared
that furniture and furnishings valued
at ioou were destroyed.
Jake Kopich, companion of Kirgo
and former proprietor of a soft drink
establishment, also was released.
"I am not very strong for police
protection for these foreigners who
come to this country and fail to en
gage in some useful enterprise." de
clared Judge Koosman referring to
Beco. "We have enough soft drink
proprietors an jitney drivers and
other fly-by-night individuals of our
own without enlisting them from the
ranks of the arrivals from foreign
The judge said that he had been in
formed Beco was facing charges of
liquor violation in the federal court
and expressed the belief that he may
have sold liq-uor to the two men which
had resulted in the fight.
"Beco started the trouble by trying
to quiet the two men and was then
too cowardly to stay and protect his
own property," declared the judge.
"Instead, he ran and called the police
The two meji were arrested . by
Police Sergeant Bunn and a detail of
Leo Brutus, who happened to be in
the establishment at the time, was hit
on the head with a bottle. Beco said
that the two men chased him out of
the room when he told them to make
less noise. Afterwards he said they
smashed 15 chairs, the coffee urn, the
gas plate and a lot of dishes. The
police said that $1000 was a high val
uation for the damage.
Kopick offered Brutus a $20 bill in
court to recompense him for the
wound on his head. ""
"I dont want the money," replied
Brutus. "All I want is peace."

CHEHALIS. Wash., May
cial.) Tne city commission has de
clined to ask that Chehalis be given
a recount oy the federal government.
Some months ago Chehalis Elks made
a careful enumeration that was later
checked by the commission, which
found the population-to be upwards of
5200 people. The government census
just announced puts the city under
the 5000 mark. The commission stands
by the first figure.
Record Flight Is Made.
PRINEVILLE. Or., ilay 26. (Spe
cial.) E. N. Evans made a record
flight from Portland to Prineville. a
distance of 210 miles, in 2 hours and
30 minutes. Saturday. He made the
trip to The Dalles, 90 miles: in 55
minutes, breaking all former records
by 14 minutes. His next stop was
Prineville, where he had small re
pairs made.' Sunday he left for Burns,

Company Hears Pay Call.
SALEM, Or., May 26. (Special.)
Company M, Oregon National guard,
heard the pay call for the first time
since it was federalized several
moaths ago, at the armory here last
night. The pay included the months
of August. September, October. No
vember and December. Hereafter the
guardsmen will receive their pay
semi-annually, probably on January
1 and July X.
consideration to the future road
programme will be given by the state
highway commission when It meets
in Portland next week. The approval
by the voters of the road bill will en
able the commission to map out a
fairly definite policy.
"We will now be able to complete
the Pacific highway to the California
line; the Coos bay-Roseburg highway
and the Corvallis-Newport highway,"
states Chairman Benson. "We can
finish the Columbia highway to the
Idaho state line and The Dalles-California
highway. We : can build the
John Day and the Central. Oregon
highway where these roads will give
the most service locally.
"I do not believe that the commis
sion will let many contracts for new
work this year because of tbe high
costs, but if prices drop, particularly
the labor market, then we m&v nla.ee
a lot of work and take advantage of
the conditions as we did last year.
The principal contracts let this year
will be the connecting links on pres
ent important roads. There are many
gaps which have to be built to con
nect up with finished work so as to
make a continuous improved road.
"The commission will go over the
Central Oregon and the John Day
highways and pick out sections for
improvement which will serve the
needs of various communities. These
will receive the first attention on
these two roads. " There will be no
rush about pushing these two high
ways forward until the main-traffic
roads such as the Columbia and Pa
cific highways have been taken care
of. However, owing to the character
of the country, construction is com
paratively light in central Oregon and
a lot of mileage can be built for a
great deal less than in some sections
of the state."

Armentrout attempted to tell Judge

was with difficulty that the judge,
after letting the salesman monopo

minutes, managed' to slip in the word
that he was fined $25. The salesman
then told the judge that he would
appeal, but failed to call his "bluff,

FILING FEE NOT EXPENSE
Attorney-General Rules on Ques
tion of District Attorney. .
SALEM, Or., May - 26. (Special.)
Filing fees as provided under the
Oregon laws are not a part of the
campaign expenses of candidates for
office, accordiner to a lesral oninton
given by Attorney-General Brown
today. The attorney-general held in
his opinion that a person wishing to
run for office is not a candidate until
the filing fee is paid, therefore this
contribution to the state would not be
considered a part of expense of the
candidate in making his campaign.
The opinion was asked by E. B.
Tongue, nominated for district attor
ney of Washington county at last
Friday's primary election.
