A battle royal waa started In the
United States circuit court yesterday
afternoon before Judge Charles E, Wol
verton when . the hearing on the pre
liminary injunction asked for by the
Washington sheepgrowers against W. H.
Lytic, state sheep Inspector, and others,
Lawyers In the case wera unable to
flinch their arguments and Judge Wol-
verton postponed the hearing until
Monday evening at 7:20 o'clock. Thla
wlU be the first night session in tbe
federal court in Portland since tne
close of the famous Blue mountain land
fraud case last summer.
The contention between the parties
to the suit on which the matter of the
preliminary injunction will be decided
is whether the new Oregon law passed
by the , laat legislature discriminates
against the Washington growers.
Evidence was introduced by the eneep
grower by niacin Dr. 8. B. Nelson,
state veterinary of Washington, and
W. C Johnson, sheep inspector of Wal
la Walla eounty, on the witness stand.
No witnesses testified for the defend
ants and immediately upon the close of
the argument of Lawyer Oscar Cain of
Walla Walla, Judge Thomas O. Halley
commenced the argument for the de
fense, but failed to finish by ths time
The feature of th Oregon law to
which the Washington growers object is
ths provision regarding dipping and
quarantining la th Wenaha foreat re
serve for summer pasturage. The act
provides that all such sheep shall be
dipped twice and shall remain In quaran
tine not leas than six days nor more
than 14. and the quarantine shall be at
tbe discretion of the sheep Inspector.
The defense contends that the pro
vision does not discriminate against
Waahlngton growers because all Oregon
sheep have to be dipped once a year,
and whenever they are exposed to con
tagious O-sease. The growers from ths
northern state claim, however, that be
cause the place Of quarantine Is left
the discretion of the Inspector, he
could name any place In the state and
place them to an expense that would
ruin their Industry. They also claim
that tbe only place where the quaran
tine could take place at the point of
entering the state Is wholly unfit for
quarantine purposes and that the aheep
would die for want of feed and water.
Judge Halley atated in court that the
purpose of the law waa solely to protect
sheep against Infected sheep brought
in from Washington, Nevada and Cali
fornia, and waa due to the fact that
Waahlngton aheep are affected with
scabies and had been placed on the
quarantine list issued by Governor
Chamberlain May 9.

Walla represent the plaintiff who own
about 20.000 sheep, and Judge HaUey
