Th company admitted taking II
pounds of the pip, and Informed th
court that It 1 th custom of Portland
plumbers to take and carry back to their
shops all the pips they remove from

This custom was urged upon th oourt
as a reason why. Mr. Bechtem should
not be sllowed judgment against tb

Tb trial wa had yesterday afternoon
and th plumber offered evidence to
