RYAN WON'T PROSECUTE
DEPITT DISTRICT ATTORNEY DROPS
; CASE AGAIXST POLICE.
Irishman Never Goea to Court with an
Assault - and - Battery Cbargre,
Saya Aggrieved Official.
"An Irishman never goes Into court
m-lth an assault-and-battery charge."
Quoting this spirited Celtic adage yes
terday morning. Deputy District Attor
ney Ryan dismissed his intention to
prosecute Chief of Police John Clark
and Police Sergeant Sherwood on
charges preferred by himself.
In a lively scrimmage between Ser
geant Sherwood and Deputy Ryan,
staged in the private office of Chief
'lark late Friday afternoon, the Deputy
IDlstrict Attorney was slightly battered.
His collar was torn and his glasses
broken. He declared that Chief Clark
also attacked him, while the latter pro
tested that he was attempting to in
tervene. The quarrel arose over the issuance
of complaints in two liquor cases,
where Deputy Ryan maintained the
police had an insufflency of evidence
to secure convictions. Charges were
bandied in the triangular discussion,
and the Deputy District Attorney was
ordered' from Chief Clark's office, the
latter asserting that Ryan was using
profane language. ,
"If the chief's charges wre true,
though I deny them, it was his duty to
arrest me, rather than to assault me,"
said Deputy Ryan yesterday. "As for
Sergeant Sherwood. I had just finished
defending him and his squad in the
Rugliesa liquor case,' when defamatory
statements were made against them.
But I've slept on the matter and it
shan't go to court."
With the heat of argument forgot
ten. Chief Clark smilingly discussed
the affray. "Why should there be a
case?" he queried. "Ther wasn't any
STREET PLAN ADVANCED
EXTENSION OK INTERSTATE AVE
NUE FAVORED AT MEETING.
Project Involve Three Separate Un
dertakings, and Cost Would Be
Spread Over OOOO Lots.
The movement started some time ago
for the extension of Interstate avenue,
formerly Patton avenue and Maryland
avenue, is making strong headway, ac
cording to those backing the plan. At
a series of meetings last week property
owners in three districts went on rec
ord as favoring the project.
The plan involves three separate ex
tension improvements. The principal
one is from Fremont street to Morris
and Delay streets, connecting Inter
state avenue from its present southern
end to Delay street at a 4 per cent
grade. The second extension Involves
the elimination of a jog by cutting
diagonally through the block between
Prescott and Skidmore streets. The
third involves elimination of another
Jog at the northern end of the street.
Tha ultimate plan is to extend In
terstate avenue northward from its
present end to the south approach to
the Interstate bridge. It is figured
that such a. connection will make this
route the most direct and ahortest be
tween Broadway bridge and Interstate
It is proposed to make the extension
by assessing the cost of about $30,000
in a district including about 6000 lots.

OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE,
Corvallis, Feb. 17. (Special.) "Work
ing hard and expect to stage a dandy
show," is the latest report on the fac
ulty minstrel show to be staged next
Thursday and Friday. Professor An
dreas Gottell is director. "Due to un
usually good voices, stunts, a fine sup
porting orchestra of 10 pieces and lot
of pep in training, the performanc
should be fine." he concluded.
Portland costumers were levied on
for wigs, masks, colors and ideas by
Professor A. G. Bouquet, who has just
returned from there with a large and
wonderful assortment. The etage set
rings are directed by Professor A. L.
Peck, campus superintendent, and are
said to be most unique. Although there
are 23 performers, aside from the or
chestra, this is not considered ominous
since the troupe has held successful
practice for the last six weeks.
All net proceeds of the show will be
turned over to the student loan fund.
