Judge Expresses Surprise That Man
. Who "Would Xot Fight for Any
Country" Would Be Allowed to
Work in Shipyard Plant. '
Joseph MtlhftrovlteTi, an Austrian,
was fined S3S and sentenced by Muni
cipal Judge Rossman to serve four
months In jail yesterday morning,
when he pleaded guilty to an assault
upon R. J. Bukey, which waa charac
terized as one of the most vlcioue ever
coming to the attention of the court.
It took place in the plant of the Wil
lamette Iron & eteel Company and, ac
cording to Deputy City Attorney Deich.
Indicated how other "accidents" have
happened in certain shipyards.
"All that intervened to make of this
case another 'accident,' " declared Mr.
Deich, "is the fact that Bukey was not
killed and that a rivet boy Witnessed
It and had the nerve to come here and
tell about it. Otherwise, had the vic
tim been killed, as have others in this
city, a report would have gone to the
Coroner that an accidental death had
occurred and. without witnesses to
prove the contrary, it would have gone
down In history as an accident. This
defendant deserves the severest pen
alty your honor can give him and then
he Is getting off lucky."
Mtlharovltch was a "burker-tip" op
posite Bukey, the riveter, and it seemed
that some Jealousy had sprung up be
tween them because of orders given by
Bukey. The latter had been ill tor a
time and his place had been filled Dy
Milharovitch, who, it appeared, was
"sore" because he had to step back into
has old job when Bukey returned.
Early yesterday morning1, the two
men had some words, but later shook
hands and Bukey told Judge Rossman
he supposed the trouble was all over
and he and Milharovitch were friends.
However, according to witnesses, Mil
harovitch later suddenly hurled a
heavy iron bar at Biikey's head. It
struck him with sufficient force to
knock mm down and put him out of
commission for a time, but he was
cared for by witnesses and his wounds
dressed in the hospital at the plant.
Meanwhile, Milharovitch had run away.
He was arrested by Policeman Burrl.
Witnesses swore that Milharovitch,
who- admitted being an unnaturalized
Austrian, "had said . he would never
fight, tor- any country.
Judge ItdBsman vu surprised, he
said, to know that such ' than could
work in a shipbuilding plant.
When Judge Rossman passed sen
tence Milharovitch nearly fainted, and
asked it he might pay a larger fine,
instead of going to Jail, but Judge
Rossman said he felt it must stand.
