FIGHTING FOR CHILD
: OF DEAD DAUGHTER
, Depositions lire being taken " before
?corge W. Josoph, acting as a commis
sioner; of the superior, court of King
tounty, Washington, In the case of J. B.
Bridges, a well-known architect of
I'ortMnd, for the possession of his
grandchild, who Is now in the custody
if- a man named Reed, who holds a
rnlnor city office in Tacoma. The grand
ehild Is the daughter of the late W. St
M. Karnes, for - several years manager
vt the Portland agency of Thlel's de
tective service, and afterwards manager
of the Seattle agency, and the deceased
daughter of Mr. Bridges. Barnes was
drowned In Elliott bay while attempt
ing to board a steamer bound from Seat
tle to Tacoma a few months ago. His
-wife' died several years ago.
Edward Mendenhall, who appears be
fore the commissioner as attorney for
Wr. Bridges, says the child Is wrong
fully withheld by Reed, Before Mrs.
Barnes' death, he says, both she and
Iter husband agreed to give the child to
licr father, as they thought that he was
the proper person to care for It. Some
time afterward Barnes demanded money
from Bridges, and falling to get it be
cause he had already been given a large
sunr, he' went , to the house during the
absence of Bridges and stole the child
nd took it to Seattle. After the death
of Barnes, Reed applied for letters of ad
ministration of his estate and took pos
session of the child. Attorney Menden-
hall appeared before the Seattle court
In the case and the plea was set up by
Heed 'that as Bridges was a. non-resident
of the state he was not entitled to pos
session. . Mendenhall asserted that the
child should be awarded to Bridges, as
lie was the nearest relative and the best
able to care for it. He secured the ap
pointment of Mr.' Joseph as commis
sioner and returned to Portland to se
cure depositions to support his conten
tion. The depositions to be taken are
those of William Gadnby, Tyler Wood
ward, Circuit .Judge M. C. George, L.
Oerlinger and Wrs. William Koehler.
The depositions will relate to the gift
of the child to Bridges by both of its
parents and as to his qualifications to
care for It The child Is, 7 years old.

Several complaints of violations of
the quarantine rules of the county board
of health by residents of Montavllla
were Investigated by .County Health
Officer Evans, Sunday, and the families
that failed to observe the regulations by
allowing their afflicted children to run
about after they had been excluded from
school were notified to keep them at
Mr. Evans says that no serious In
fraction of the rules had been commit
ted. Scarlet fever had been somewhat
prevalent in Montavllla, and upon the
receipt of the attending physician's cer
tificate the other children of the family
from which the case was reported were
at once excluded from the school. Their
parents did not understand the law re
quiring them to be-within doors, and
they were allowed to run about, and
other children were exposed. The phy
sicians who were seen . by Mr. Evans
said that hereafter when they were
called' upon to attend cases of Infec
tious diseases they would carefully ex-
nlaln 4h law tn th fiflrnn mn ftia?
the quarantine regulations may be fol
lowed to the letter, and there will be
no danger of further complaints. .

'We are organized through necessity,""
explained William Hartley of Burns, Or.,
the president of the Oregon Cattlegrow
ers' association. "In this day and age
everything Is organized and It is only
by concerted actldn that we can hope
to accomplish anything.
"The new association does not wish
to go on record as being on the warpath
or out after the railroad companies, but
of course if any condition exists that
we consider unjust we will surely make
ourselves heard. ; ; . .
"As a Whole, I believe the members
of the association aro satisfied with ex
isting conditions as regards the trans
portatlon companies. Of course, there
are Instances where Individuals con
elder themselves mistreated." . '
Mr. Hanley declares that the cattle
industry, in which nearly half the farm
ers fftd other producers of Oregon are
interested, is behind almost every other
business in the state. , "Oregon is a
strong, breeding state,"' he continued,
"one of the strongest in the West. It
Is the home of the little calf. It Is not
as well prepared for the ; development
of the animal as some of the other
"Our plan Is to Interest the depart
ment of forestry in the just distribution
of gracing lands In the forest reserves,
advocating the policy that the country
from which the reserve la taken shall
have first say or preference. Mr. Plnchot
declares that this scheme Is one of 'the
best that has been advanced. '
"For my part, I believe this plan will
prove satisfactory, for the people of
the county will pay Its taxes and should
be given precedence over outsiders."
Mr. and Mrs. Hanley are at the Im
perial, and expect to remain in Portland
at least . two weeks longer. Tjils la
my annual vacation," said Mr. Hanley,
"and I am In no hurry to get home."
