but -beer waa tha favorite beverage in
Bellwood. precinct yesterday and as a
result of the gratuitous dispensation
;of the liquor Nick Marquert landed In
'the -city prison on, a charge of giving
intoxicants away on election day.
! ' Information was conveyed to the po
lice yesterday afternoon that six kegs
: of beer had been stored in, the base
ment of a . house at East Thirteenth
'and Spokane streets and every voter
with a thirst was being accommodated
with a glass of the foaming brew.
Detectives Hellyer and Baty were de-
tailed , to make : an investigation and

Twelve Jurors, five lawyers and a
bailiff of the United States circuit
court went to. Seaond street between
Morrison and Alder streets this morn-
ins for the purpose of examining a
street cer that had been plsced there
by the Portland Railway, Light
Power company and tha lay of the
street where little Wong You Nom was
killed by a street car laat year, to aid
them In deciding the i suit of Wong
Kim, father of the dead boy, brought
against the street car company to re
In the meantime tiny Kum Tuk, Wong
Tou Noma mother, and very little
larger than a healthy 10-year-old Ameri
can girl, sat In the courtroom weeping
her eyes out at the memory of the
tragedy which separated her forever
from her offspring.
Later the Jury returned and the mo
notonous grind of Justice was resumed,
J. R. Halnllne, an engineer,, was placed
upon the etand in testified that he had
seen the accident and that, while the
little boy ran from the east side of the
street, the rnotorman was looking to
ward the west and was talking to a
man seated to his left.
The attorneys for the plaintiff will
attempt to prove that the car was run
nlog at the rata of three or four miles
an hour at the time the aocldent hap
pened and that the rnotorman, had he
been looking ahead, could have stopped
the car in time to prevent the accident
They will also attempt to prove that
proper fenders were not In use on the
csr which killed the boy. This Is a
point that Is regarded as Important be
cause, of the fact that the legislature
passed an act providing that tha city
council end mayor of any incorporated
city oould adopt any approved fender
Instead Of the one provided by the
state law, which stipulates that the
fender must .extend two feet In front
of the car and be not more than three
Inches above tha rails. ,
The attorneys for tha plaintiff con
tend that the legislature exceeded Its
constitutional legislative power by
passing an act granting such provision.
The streetcar company will endeavor
to prove that tha child came to its
death through contributory negligence.
The case was tried in the state circuit
court last December end the Jury die
agreed. Tne present trial was com
menced yesterday and promises to be
in Butte Boys Advertise
ments Are Untrue.
