Files' $50,000. Damage Suit Against John . EL L

Bar Association Against Ditchburiu
'. jr.-.'. . . : . i. .. - - -,n . i ........... ;-
A a sequence of the disbarment pro
ceedings filed against Attorney John
IHtchburn with the grievance commit
tee of the Oregon Bar association by
John M. A. Forbusch, through his at
torney, Richard Nixon, the accused man
brought suit in the state circuit court
this afternoon to recover 150,000 dam
ages. ;. ' .
It has been a matter of common
knowledge for , several days that ..the
suit was to be filed.
The disagreement between the prin
cipals forms a salient chapter in the
local . history of legal and semi-legal
affairs. In last November, Attorney
Pttchburn was called a liar by Attorney
Nixon at the office of District Attorney
Manning and promptly swatted Nixon
several times on 'the head and face.
Failing to get a warrant for the arrest
of Dltchburn on a charge in connection
with the affairs of the defunct Portland
Savings bank, Nixon filed charges of un
professional conduct on Forbusch's com
complaint against Dltchburn and pre
sented them to the grievance committee
of the , Oregon Bar association.
In the damage suit Instituted by At
torney -Dltchburni he declares that these
-charges, to which Forbusch made arll
davlt, virtually accuse him of larceny
All the evidence of both aides to the
controversy was submitted to the griev
ance committee, but its findings will not
be made known for some time.;. Believ
ing that some time may elapse before
the : result of the hearing by the Bat
association 4 is made known. Attorney
Dltchburn decided that he would rather
bring suit for damages than rest under
. a cloud.
' The langauge termed libelous, In ; the
' complaint filed with the grievance com
,'mlttee of the Bar association in dlsbar
iment proceedings Is quoted In the com
plaint. In part it follows:
. 'That heretofore, and on or about the
12th day of June, 1899, your petitioner
had a claim against the Portland Sav
ings bank, an Insolvent corporation, un
der a certain certificate of deposit, for
: 14,000. - '..:'- s - - - .
"That about said time your petitioner,
being without funds and desiring to re
turn to his home . In Austria, borrowed
from one John Dltchburn, an attorney
at law, who had previously been look
ing after certain affairs for petition,
the sum of $110. and assigned said cer
tificate of deposit, to the said John

City Attorney L. A. McNary, : In re
sponse to the Inquiry of the water board
as to the legality of expenditures from
the funds under the board's control for
the purchase and erection of fire
hydrants, has prepared ari opinion upon
the question. After reciting the pro
visions of section 224 of the charter, by
which the city la authorised to "con
struct or purchase, keep, conduct and
maintain waterworks, and all necessary
plants and facilities', aufilclent to fur
nish the city and 1U Inhabitants with
an abundance of water for all uses and
purposes necessary for the comfort, con
enlence and welfare of the same," and
section 236 of the charter, providing
that the water board "shall annually,
before the first day of January, make
a written estimate of the probable ex
penses of maintaining and conducting
"the waterworks during the ensuing
year." -',' i " ' '' : ,
Mr. McNary says: "I am advised by
your letter that at an adjourned meeting
of the water board on the 14th day of
December last an estimate of the prob?
able expense of the board for the year
1904 was prepared, based upon the esti
mated expenditure for "operation and
repairs, 'additional meters," "repairing
reservoirs,' 'extending mains,' 'Inter
est on water bonds," and 'other exten
sions and improvements,' aggregating
the sum of $486,000. and that the council
of the city of Portland thereafter made an
anoroDriatlon of said amount for the
expenses of the water department, In
accordance with the estimate of the
board, which appropriation was made In
an aggregate amount ana not by specific
amount for the several items of ex
penditure upon which the recommenda
tions of the water board were oasea. it
being a, single appropriation to Include
, M .11 nH W
current year. : '
"I have to answer the water board
that. In my opinion, tha water to be fur
; nlshed to the . city and inhabitants
thereof for all uses and purposes neces
sary for the comfort, convenience and
well being of the same," Includes water
to be used for the protection or property,
as well as individual consumption, and
it follows that the providing and In
stalling of fire hydrants Is a proper
. right for such board to exercise under
the charter; and the board is further aa
vised that It is proper and lawful for
it to expend. Out of the appropriation
made, by the council for1 the current
year, such amount as may be necessary
or required for installing new fire
hydrants In the city, provided . other ex
penditures already actually provided for
or. necessary to be made out of the ap
propriation do not consume the whole
of the amount appropriated. The board
Is not precluded front using money for
the purpose mentioned on account of the
. estimate not naming this as one Of the
contemplated expenses to be met. and
the money at Its disposal for the. current
year may be properly expended la any
manner which may be In furtherance of
tha 'comfort, convenience and well being"
of. the Inhabitants of the city, and
: within the province of the board." .
The opinion of the cttw attorney will
probably be accepted as decisive, and tn
that event the expense of installing fire
hydrants will be paid .from the water
fund. -. .

to Nixon and Forbusch, and. that For
busch admitted all his statements to be
true, claiming, however, that he had r
celved but one letter from Dltchburn,
' It was on this occasion that the per
sonal encounter arose between Nixon
and Dltchburn.?. The lie was passed on
account of a statement of Dltchburn In

ATTORNEY MANNING '
DEFENDS HIS ACTION
Mrs. B. Tannler of Cedarville makes
charges against District Attorney Man
ning that he has refused to prosecute
George Cromwell., on the charge of as
sault committed laat June. She says
that she has evidence to show that aha
was tha victim of tha attack by Crom
well.. ' '
Mr. Manning, In giving his reason for
not prosecuting, stated: "I made an in
vestigation of tha case and found that
the alleged assault was committed In a
two-room house. Cromwell and Mrs.
Tannler were In the kitchen. In the
other room were the wife of Cromwell
and a 12-year-old girl. It was also
shown that a man was at tha pump
within 12 feet of tha kitchen. Tha
woman could easily have raised an
alarm, but did not do so. No conviction
could have been secured under tha evi
dence, and It would have been an ex
pense to the taxpayers."
