Five Would Acquit Former
Court Bailiff on Charge
of Blackmail.
mffge Eakln Discharges Talesmen
Who Concur on AH Points of Case
but One Deliberations Con
tinue for Night and Day.
ST. HELENS. Or-. Oct. 13. (Special.)
Th jury In the Blakesley case was dis
charged at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon
after being out a little more
than 24 houTS. Judge Eakin called the
jurymen into court and after questioning
them as to the probability of agreement
and finding there waa no chance for a
verdict, discharged them from further
consld?ration of the caee.
The Jury stood seven for conviction and
five for acquittal on the ground that the
letter upon which the Indictment was
based did cot contain . a threat that
would make a reasonably courageous
man believe he was In danger of great
bodily harm. This was about Judge
Eakin's language In charging the Jury
and It Is to this instruction Blakesley
V owes his liberty, as the Jury agreed on
every other point necessary to base a
verdict of guilty. District Attorney
Tongue took exception to the instruction
at the time it was given, but Judge Eakln
aid he had carefully considered the law
and believed the Instruction was correct.
This morning the Jury asked for more
1-nplIclt instruction upon this point, and
the Judge emphasized his first statement.
District Attorney Tongue Announces
He Will Begin Second Fight.
HILLSBORO, Or., Oct 23. (Special.)
District Attorney Tongue, upon be
ing Informed of the disagreement of
the Blakesley Jury today, announced
that he would prepare to re-try the
use Immediately on the same indict
ment. He is surprised at the result, be
lieving the handwriting evidence
against Blakesley to be most convinc
ing. It Is the Intention of District Attor
ney Tongue to begin the second trial
next week if the court docket will per
mit this procedure. If this is not pos
sible he will endeavor to have the case
set for another date to this term of
In the next trial, it is believed, the
state will revive Jack McCarthy, the
x -convict Indicted with Blakesley, as
Introduction of the co-defendant would
allow much new evidence In the case.
In the recent trial the state tried to
get McCarthy in the case by the testi
mony of Tom Word. ex-Sheriff of
Multnomah County, but the evidence
was stricken out and McCarthy waa
later referred to by the prosecutors as
a "bogie man." a "figment of Imagina
tion." ,
District Attorney Tongue says be
will prosecute the case until either an
acquittal or conviction results. .
Stevenson and Haney Regard Disa
greement as Complimentary.
Attorneys John H. Btevenson and
Bert E. Haney. who defended Blakeeley,
consider the disagreement of the Jury as
a victory for them as they did not call
any witnesses, relying solely on their
to-losing arguments and cross-examinations.
The Instruction given the Jury by
Judge Eakln and which was the immedi
ate cause of the disagreement waa sub
mitted by Attorneys Stevenson and
Haney. It was sustained by Judge Ea
kln despite strong opposition by Dis
trict Attorney Tongue. This instruct
tlon termed a threat to be a written or
verbal statement that would cause an
ordinarily courageous man to be afraid
that he was to be subjected to bodily
barm. The Jury. in seeking further
light on this instruction, was told by
Judge Eakln that the original definition
of a threat was amply plain and that it
would stand as submitted.
The disagreement evidently Indicates
that the closing arguments of Attorneys
Stevenson and Haney won over five men
of the Jury as from first to last the
preponderance of evidence a as against
their client.
Though not yet retained It U believed
Attorneys Btevenson and Haney will de
fend Blakesley in the second trial. W.

After Various Court Proceedings,
Henry Zastrow Is Still In House
From Which He Has Several
Times Been Put Out.
ALBANY. Or., Oct 23. (Special.)
Displaying unparalleled tenacity of
purpose, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Zastrow,
of Lebanon, have 'disregarded court
orders, deputy sheriffs, padlocks and
log chains and have moved back into a
house from which they were recently
evicted by Sheriff Smith under orders
of the State Circuit Court. For three
years the Zastrows fought for this
property through the courts, contesting
every step bitterly, and now, unsuc
cessful In their legal battle, they have
refused to abide by the law, and, thus
far, repelling all invaders, are living in
the house In which, the court says, they
have no right to stay.
The case forms one of the most pecu
liar strings of litigation which has ever
gone through the local courts. Accord
ing to the facts which developed In
the case, Zastrow made -a verbal agree-'
ment with Mrs. Dulsena J. Usher in
March, 1806, to buy 20 acres Just east
of Lebanon. In pursuance of this
agreement he moved into the house on
the property.
Before Zastrow secured the money to
pay for the property and tendered the
purchase price to Mrs. Usher, she had
received a higher offer for the prop
erty from H. Q. Flelschhauer, repre
senting the Willamette Valley. Com
pany, and sold the property to him,
claiming that she had no definite
agreement with Zastrow. She ordered
Zastrow off the, place, but he refused
to go, and after notifying him time and
again to leave, Flelschhauer filed an
action for ejectment In the State Cir
cuit Court here on August 25, 1906;
Case Hotly Contested.
Zastrow contested this case through
all preliminary steps and then filed a
sutt In equity, 'sssertlng that he had
an equitable If not a legal right to the
property. The contest over the proper
ty was then fought out in this equity
case. Ignorant of the law and oourt
practice and very determined In his
opinions, Zastrow tried to manage his
own case In such a way that two dif
ferent attorneys who represented him
withdrew from the case and would
have nothing to do with It. Zastrow
announced In open court at one time
that he would try the case himself, but
when It actually came to trial he se
cured one of his former attorneys and
had the benefit of a fair trial.
As there was no evidence to show a
contract between Zastrow and Mrs.
Usher, there being only a verbal agree
ment regarding which the parties tes
tified differently. Judge Galloway dis
missed the equity case. Judge Burnett
then granted Flelschhauer a Judgment
In ids action for ejectment.
By virtue of this Judgment, which
was rendered July 1, 1909, the Wil
lamette Valley Company notified Zas
trow to leave the premises, but he did
not do so. Accordingly an execution
was secured from the County Clerk's
office here on September 18, and Sheriff
Smith and Deputy Sheriff Munkers
went to Lebanon on September 80 and
evicted Zastrow from the place. In
spite of continual protests from Mrs.
Zastrow they moved all the furniture
out of the house Into a county road
and locked the doors. Joseph J. Smith
was appointed to represent the Sheriff
as keeper.
Log Chain Proves No Bar.
Fearing the Zastrows would try to
re-enter the premises the officers
barred the windows and, cutting holes
in the walls, - ran a log .chain com
pletely around both sides of the door
and locked It with a padlock.
Local officers of the Willamette Val
ley Company today received word from
Lebanon that Zastrow had broken
down the front door and had moved
his furniture into the house over the
locked log chain, swinging in the
smashed-ln door, and was again oc
cupying the residence. This was not
altogether unexpected, for since their
ejectment both Zastrow and his wife
have made trips to Albany, talking
over the case with court officers and
attorneys, and they seemed absolutely
unable to understand that they had
exhausted all their legal rights by
contesting the case In every possible
way through the courts, and that they
now had neither legal nor equitable
rights to the place.
So the matter now stands in a pecu
liar situation. The court records here,
with the Sheriff's return on the ex
ecution, show that Zastrow has been
evicted from the premises and is not
there. But according to reliable re
ports from Lebanon he is there. The
eviction didn't seem to "stick." Legally
Zastrow Is off the premises; actually
he is on. and how to make the legal
and actual conditions coincide is a
problem whioh Is bothering WHlamette
Valley Company officers and their at
torneys. As the Teoord shows that .Zastrow
was evicted and Flelschhauer put In
possession of the premises, the latter
is in legal possession and another ex
ecution cannot issue for Zastrow1! evic
tion. The company will probably have
to begin an action for trespass to get
Zastrow off the place, but whatever
legal step Is taken It is generally
predicted that Zastrow will not leave
the house without a fight.

Constipation And
The Latter Usually Caused by the
Former, Which, in Turn, Has Its
Origin in Intestinal Indigestion.
Chronic constipation is a disease
which is about as prevalent as dyspep
sia and indigestion. Nearly every one
suffers from it occasionally, but there
are millions of people who endure it
habitually, and who are accustomed
to resort to the use of laxatives and
cathartics daily.
Many people seemed to have devel
oped a perfect mania for taking pills,
and Instead of trying to ascertain the
latent cause of the disease, and remov
ing It by appropriate treatment, they
are content to continue the reckless
use of laxatives, aperients, drastic
cathartics and violent purgatives, until
finally inflammation of the bowels oc
curs, which reaches the appendix, and
the result is appendicitis.
In investigating and tracing the
causutlve factors of constipation and
its frequent sequel, appendicitis, it has
been noted by physicians that the ma
jority of cases were preceded and ac
companied by a long-standing gastro
intestinal indigestion.
The Idea that appendicitis is brought
on by foreign bodies, such as seeds,
etc, becoming lodged In the appendix,
is an exploded theory. It is now defi
nitely known that constipation Is the
most prolific cause of this dread dis-
ease, while the constipation itself is j
previously Induced by Intestinal tndf-
gestlon, or amylaceous dyspepsia the
inability to digest starches so the re- j
lation between cause and effect la
readily seen and appreciated.
The absurdity of attempting to cure
constipation by the use of physio
should be apparent to every one. Lax
ative drugs and powerful purgatives
will never cure a disease of this sort, ;
and those who make frequent or regu
lar use of them will, sooner or later,
set up an inflammatory condition ' of
the Intestinal system.
. A person with first-class digestion
will never be annoyed with chronic
constipation, and when this trouble
does exist, instead of slugging the
system with pills, liquid laxatives,
candy cathartics, etc., use a remedy
which will cure the gastro-lntestinal
indigestion, and you will find that the
constipation no longer bothers you.
and with its removal, the risk of de
veloping appendicitis will be reduced
to the minimum.
have been the means of curing numer
ous cases of constipation, by first cur
ing the intestinal Indigestion. They
digest every kind of food, a single
grain being capable of digesting 3000
grains of alimentum, and In addition
to pepsin and other powerful diges

If you are suffering from dyspepsia,
constipation, and, in fact, indigestion
of any kind, don't run the risk of get
