way in the circuit court this
week On Monday the plaintiffs
presented their case "with several
witnesses and reated, while the
defense started, 1n on the presen
tation of testimony. Two wit
nesses for the defense were heard
Monday. '. ' -
It H Uttlclpated , that the case

DebatUl Witness Coming
The plaintiffs will have their
witnesses for rebuttal by Wed
fcwday morning. Yesterday they
wired for Frank Schmidt, one of
the old Phes company officers,
who is now in San Francisco, to
como at once, to be readf with
his rebuttal testimony.
The ease represents many in
teresting legal phases. The first
sultJbrought by the Phez com
pany against the Balem Fruit
union and Us individual stock
holders, for alleged breach of
contract and for failure to deliver,
loganberries under their contract,
was won by the plaintiffs as to
the. Salem Fruit union. The low
er court," -however sustained , a
demurrer a to the sufficiency of
the 'evidence to bind the individ
ual stockholders, . while allowing
the ease - to be tried against thr
Salem Fruit union.
f Origlnlal Case Appealed -''
This case went on to a verdict
for The Phes company against the
fruit union. The case was ap
f pealed to the supreme court and
the Judgment was affirmed, mak
ing It valid - against the - union
. property. The total assets of the
wIon h(jwever are- understood
to be f ar less than the amount
. of the r claimsomething .like
, $75,000, whereas the full claim
was for four times that sum. The
. plaintiffs, therefore,! not 1 seeing
any possibility of collecting itheir
Judgment, 1 appealed to the u-
preme court tor a ruling on the
validity of the demurrer that juid
exonerated the individual stock
holders of Che -.union .; from - re
sponsibility. .The supreme eourt
reversed the decision of the lower
- court and called for a retrial with
the individual stockholders at de
fendants. -This Is the matter that
is now being tried. -
?ew Trial Vital .
V It is understood that the Judg
ment stands and is final a td the
fruit union, with all Its holdings
to be credited on the amount of
the judgment. This new trial of
the stockholders will determine
whether' The Fhex company can
make up the , rest of ita claim
from the loganberry growers
whom they claim benefited by the
. violation of the old sales con
tracts. The case has two courts
to run through, the icircult nd
the supreme court. The - supreme
court decision does not say or In
tlmate that the Individual stock
holders are "ruilty," but merely
that , (hey should tight It out in
court and determine the case on

Widespread reports that sweep

al guard of the United States
were caused by the action of the
war secretary in calling for a
board of officers to sit in Wash
ington thU month for the purpose
of revising allotments, the letter
states. The real mission of this
board, with which General White
is Invited to sit, is merely to re
arrange allotments, if necessary,
where states are not able to meet
their obligations under the na
tional defence act.
' "An impression seems to pre
vail in some quarters," the letter
says, "that the' contemplated
study of national guard strength
together with related questions of
allotment of units to the national
guard component of the army of
the United States implies an in
tention on the part of the war de
partment to make general changes
of a disconcerting nature in th'e
structure of the present national
guard organizations which have
been ! allotted to and built up by
tbe states. This is not the case
and In order to allay any 'uneasi
ness in this connection, it is desir
able that you be so informed."
That the revision of future al
lotments of companies will bene
fit Oregon, was the opinion ex
pressed by General White.
"Oregon has raised Its entire
quota of national guard troops to
date," he said, "and is able to es
tablish as many additional units
as may be assigned by reason of
the failure of other western states
to maintain units at the required
