$24,039.41' O.V CLAIMS
Outcome of This Salt May Affect
All of 18 Count le in
Tax Refund
. :
A suit was filed in the circuit
court here yesterday by I. II. Van
Winkle,' attorney general, which
would force Marion county to pay
to the Rtate of Oregon $24,0.19.41.
Thlsi Is the share the state claims
of the total amount of J11 1,000
received by Marion county from
the Oregon & . California Jand
grant tar refund. This suit is be
ing watched with considerable in
terest as its outcome may affect
18 counties in the state, which
participated in this refund.
A tabulation prepared by the
attorney general and other state
officials shows that the aggregate
tax refund under the congression
al act is 6.000,000. Of this amount
the state eontcndK it is entitled 1o
receive $1,349,391. The same
tabulation shows that in event
the state prevails in the suit 25
of the 36 counties in Oregon
would benerit by the decree. Those
25 connties are thore in eastern
Oregon which has none of the
railroad grant, lands and seven
western Oregon counties which
contain part of the grant lands
and share in the government re
fund. Failure of the state to pre
.vail In the proceedings would
prove beneficial to 11 of the grant
land counties.
"Since the refund or advance
ment to the 18 counties in which
the revested iands lie was direct
ed to be made by congress." read
a statement prepared by the at
torney general, "as discussion has
arisen as to- the proper construc
tion of the law. Officials of the
several counties in which such
grants are situated have taken
the position that the state is not
entitled to any part of the refund.
"On the other hand, it is direct
ly provided .in the congressional
enactment that the state is en
titled -t receive : such portion of
the"" refund representing the
amount of state taxes which would
have been levied upon the lands
granted ta the Oregon & Califor
nia railroad i company and revest
ed in the government for failure
to comply with the terms of the
grant, bad such lands remained
in private ownership during the
years 1916 to 1926, inclusive.
"It therefore becomes the duty
of the attorney general to pre

adjudication and enforcement of

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 23.
,(AP) Six Mexican prelates,
expelled from the country at Lare
do today, declared on their arrival
here tonight that their expulsion
had come only after they had in
formed the Mexican secretary of
interior that Catholics of Mexico
had the right to stand up for
their rights, peacefully if possible,
but with arms if necessary.
The party, headed by the vener
able Archbishop Mora Del Rio, 89
years old, and Archbishop Leo
poldo Ruiz y Flores reached San
Antonio by automobile late to
night and were immediately taken
to the home of Archbishop Arth
ur J. Drossaerts of San Antonio.
Archbishop Mora was very tired
after the long journey from Mexi
co City. Archbishop Ruiz said the
six had been arrested for rebellion
and arraigned before Minister of
the Interior Tejedo. who question
ed them as to the charge.
"We have aided no revolution,"
Archbishop Ruiz quoted Mora Del
Rio as saying. "We have plotted
no revolution but we do claim that
the Catholics of Mexico have the
right to fight for their rights by
peaceful means first and with
arms in an extremity."
"That statement constitutes re
bellion against the government
and you will be deported from the
country," Archbishop Ruiz de
clared the minister replied.

: Clarence Darrow, noted Chicago

Wheeler, general counsel of the
Anti-Saloon league, debated pro
hibition tonight, before a large
audience in Carnegie hall.
Wheeler, foe of alcohol, took
the negative, and Darrow, protag

suffer or be happy," took the af
firmative. The subject was: "Re
solved, that prohibition of bever
age liquor traffic is detrimental to
the public welfare." There was no
official decision. The debate was
sponsored by the f American For

Darrow, declaring it a minority
measure, and legal tyranny, said
prohibition was a failure; that it
would not and had not been en

Device Tells Whether Defendant
Has Been Drinking, Claim
CHICAGO, April 23 -AP.)
When a deferidAnt of the future
faces the judge and hears the usu
al question, "Had you been drink
ing?" he will not need to reply, if
an instrument perfected by Wm. D.
McNally, coroner's chemist, comes
into general use.
A tube of the defendant's breath
taken when he was arrested will
tell the tale. If the court is hot
j certain, he can examine a second
tube of the defendant's breath
which has been subjected to chem
ical analysis.
If the second tube shows a rich
green, the defendant's potations
were considerable: if it is a light
green, he didn't have so much, and
ii colorless, the judge, according to
Dr. McNally's findings, should
promptly say "Not guilty."
