l DALLAS CASE
Field and Housh Want Ac
counting Dissolution of
DALLAS, Ore , Nov. IS. (Spe
cial to The Statesman) D. M.
Field and F. M. Housh yesterday
made application to the circuit
court for the appointment of a
receiver for the accounting and
the dissolution .of their partner
ship with W. C Lee who has had
the contract for the hardsurfac
ing about 20 blocks of streets in
Dallas this summer.
The plafntiffs state that they
were awarded the contract by the
Dallas city council last spring and
that they assigned it to Lee under
an agreement by which they were
to receive a share of the profits.
They assert that the division has
never been made. Tho court is
asked to place a receiver in charge
of finishing up the work in Dal
las and to prohibit Lee from col
lecting and expending any more
money that may be paid him on
The contract with Mr. Lee and
the city : of Dallas expired Sep
tember 3 and since that time the
contractor has been assessed $25
for each day and the same system
will be continued until the con
tract has been finished. The cTty
council has had several appeals
by the contractor and other in
terested persons asking them not
to enforce the penalty as provided
in the contract but on the alle
gation that the contractor wasted
several weeks of thne when excel
lent weather for road building
prevailed. The appeals have fall
en on deaf ears. It is estimated
that it' will still take at least two
weeks to finish up the job If the
weather is good and until the job
is completed and accepted by the
city . council, Is not disposed to
grant the refunding' of the pen
alty and if such is the case the
profits on the job will doubtless
amount practically to nothing. Ac
tion will probably be taken by the
court early next week.

WASHINGTON, Nov. IS. The
brief days of 'medical" beer
were considered numbered today
when the senate, by a vote dT 56

With legislative action conclud
ed, the bill, fought over for
months, goes to the president,
who is expected to give his ap
proval within the ten-day period
in which he can act. It was
thought possible, however, that
there might be a few days delay
while an opinion as to the consti
tutionality of the measure was re
ceived from the attorney gener
al. UnTn the president's pen por?s

but in all quarters the lease on
life for "medical" beer was not
placed beyond 10; 'days although
the beer ban went down only a
few weeks ago with the issuance
of the treasury's beer regulations.
Only an hour's deabte, but ol
extra fervid character, preceded
the senate vote today. Prohibi

clashed sharply .during the final
discussion, limited by agreement.
