ARGUMENT IN CITY
From one cent to
TALLMAN & CO,
THE LEADING DRUGGISTS.
Counsel Appear Before Judge Ellis
and Present Respective Sides.
As had previously been announced,
the city injunction cases which have
been hanging fire since the 6th of
January, came up this morning,
These are the cases involving the
rights of Marshal Heathman and Re
corder Beam in acting as city mar
shal and recorder.
At a meeting of the, now council,
after the first of the year they, by a
vote of 4 to 4 and the decision of
Mayor Hailey against the old incum
bents of the offices, declared the of
fices of marshal and recorder vacant
and proceeded to elect William Lane
and Jj. G. Frazier to fill the places
by the same vote. This action was
taken as Illegal by Heathman and
Beam, and they immediately employ
ed counsel and injunctions were filed,
asking the county court to enjoin the
newly-elected men to these places
from qualifying as such officers or
from in any way attempting to mo
lest Heathman and Beam in their
duty as such officers, holding and de
claring that under the city charter
it took a majority vote of tho council
to oust any incumbent of these of
fices and elect now men and that the
mayor has no say whatever in the
matter. The plaintiffs also alleged
that T. G. Hailey was not mayor, T.
B. Wells, Frank B. Clopton, J. R.
Dickson were not councilmen, and
that the only man who opposed
Heathman and Beam who had any
right whatever to have a say in the
running of the municipal affairs of
the city was Councilman Johnson, a
hold-over member, thereby attacking
the constitutionality of the city char
ter which provided that the marshal
and recorder should be appointed by
the council and not elected by a
vote of the people the same as are
the councilmen. ,,
Tho defendants filed their answer
to plaintiffs' and asked that the dis
trict court dissolve the injunctions,
and the argument of both sides is
now being heard.
Mayor Hailey was the first on the
floor this morning. He read the com
plaint and commented on it. He also
read many citations of law which
bore on the subject and submitted his
argument at 10:05. Then Attorney
A. D. Stlllman, for tho plaintiffs, took
the floor and he occupied the atten
tion of the judge until 12 o'clock in
reading special cases of law bearing
on his side of the question. He again
took up the reading and argument
when court convened at 1:30 and con
tinued It until 2 o'clock, when he
yielded the floor to City Attorney
Carter, who appeared in behalf of the
This afternoon, Messrs. Carter,
Pierce and Hailey were heard, and
the case is yet unfinished.

Messages From the Court of King Cu
pid to Various Lovers.
February 14, Saint Valentine's day.
The mails were filled this morning
with missives of all sorts and descrip
tions Bent from those who desired to
transmit messages from the court of
Cupid, while some of them wore not
calculated to convoy thought of ten
derness, for they were grotesque and
boro suggestions of ridicule and un
pleasant fun-making. Probably, tho
day was not observed so generally
as in the past, although tJie good

Several valentines were sent to the
East Oregonian in response to the in

best one, according to the decision of
the judges, will be given an acknowl

They are printed under numbers,
and are thus submitted to the judges,

. Valentine No. 1.
Saint Valentine is here once -more,
And knocking gently at the door
Of lovers' hearts.
Mine opens wide, the dear old painter
Within now begins to paint
A maiden's face.
A snow white brow 'neath waves of
Brown, but for sunbeams playing
And tangled in.
A cheek that Cupid's wing has
'Til like the red, red rose it blushed,
He's painting there.
Eyes that must tax his skill I know,
They are so blue and twinkle so
The stars seem dull.
Those little ears in hue and tint,
To apple blossoms give a hint,
To profit by.
Describe those Hps! a pen like thlp
Is all too weak. They're made to
If I but dared.
The portrait finished, Velentine
Said, "Young man, make that maiden
"nigh teagerly," my heart replied,
"No other maid shall be my bride
To thee I vow."
My heart's key Cupid brings to you
And bids you quickly come to view
Your own dear face.
Ah, love, if only I might dare
To hope you'd let me keep it there,
No. 2, Lover's Lane, Bridevllle.
Valentine No. 2.
This morning found St. Valentine a
bandage round his dead,
His fingers inky, tumbled hair, just
crawling into bed,
The floor was strewn with manu
scripts, wild were the good saints
In frenzy fine they rolled about; lie
growled "Confound that prize,"
It used to be a simple thing to write
a pretty rhyme,
Heart, dart; love dove; face, grace,
and such were welcomed on a time.
And Polly didn't really mind if I
rhymed bow with you,
And roses red and violets, were quite
good form then, too.
I used to trim them up with lace and
they were just too sweet,
(My -oinmisvslon from the parson was
always something neat)
Of late they haven't seemed to work,
and bachelors galore
Are roaming round and I've become
most scandalously pore
And so for dollars paltry I've nado
my old brain whirl,
A grindin' verses out to suit a twen
tieth century girl.
And all that I have got to show, for
this long night of woe
Is a lot of fine beginnings that balk
ed and wouldn't go.
So if you'll kindly mnll to mo that
check for dollars three
I'll send it to Eliza, and think, twixt
you and me,
It will be more effective than verses
And you can advertise the fact; then
we will make a te,am
You furnish checks, I send 'em out
'til old maid's disappear,
And bridegrooms for the good E. O.
will give a mighty cheer.
Valentine No. 3.
Lady of the smiling eyes,
Lady of the golden hair,
Could I but hope to win the prize
There is no deed I would not dare.
Bend but; once those eyes on me,
Let but one sweet glance bo mine
And this pifro heart that beats for
Shall be thy loving valentine.
Valentine No. 4.
Still gliding onward with our race
From prehistoric times and place
A saint through many thousand years
Today in Pendleton appears.
Ho comes to sadden or delight
While dropping verses left and right
To chide or cheer the dull and gay
For this is Valentino's great day.
Old crusty bachelors now shall got
What thov aro huntlnc fnr v.i
And sour old maids with noses bluo
onau nave to meet his angor, too.
Tho lovesick swain will find relief
In tolling someone of his grjef.
And she will scarcely miss the
Of putting him Into a trance.
Ho comes from Cupid's realms above,
A faithful mercury of love,
And carries from his monarch true,
Full power of attorney, too.
And Mrs. Grundy will not dnro
To criticize, nor even staro,
So let us all for once comblno
And welcome good Saint Valentine.
Valentine No. 5.
Sweet girl, possessing beauty rare,
With eyes of Jet and raven hair,
Of matchless grace and form divine,
For theo I write this valentine.
By Intuition, I am sure,
That thou art gentle, kind and pure.
And yet thou art unknown to mo,
In whom my ideal I sec.
So with a hapless lovor's sigh
I bow my homage and pass by.
Valentine No. 6.
Gliding down tho stream of ages,
From tho prehistoric line,
Known by Druid bards and sages,
Comes the good Saint Valentino,
To rejuvenate the aged,
To electrify the young,
As he did in ancient Carthage,
As he did when Homer sung.
For some heart he bears a flower,
For some heart ho bears a thorn,
Happy mortal, Cupid's dower,
Luckless mortal, Cupid's ZZZ'Z.
Vfticre he comes from -no one know
eth. .. B"t his' mission is sublime,
"Thou shalt reap but what thou bow
eth," Is a maxim old as time.
Let the loved one take his treasure
With a glad and grateful heart,
And the loveless his displeasure
As of his deserts a part.
Give him welcome, then, good people,
And for mail fall into line,
And let bells from each church
steeple Ring "All Han. St. Valentine."
WRECK DELAYED LAST
NIGHT'S SPQKANE TRAIN.
Occurred Near Rockford, Washington
Two Passengers Hurt Slightly.
The train duo at G:20 p. m., from
Spokane, was delayed two hours on
Thursday ovoning, by a wreck that
occurred at Rockford, 'a station 20
miles this side from Spokane. Two
engines were smashed, one of two
cars crushed, and two passongers in
jured, although not severely. It was
a head-end collision, and tho wonder
is great that no one was killed. Tho
collision was caused by a switchman
failing to throw the switch, and this
sent the Portland-Spokane train into
the Pendleton-Spokane train which
stood on a siding. The moving train
was going slowly, which is the ex
planation of the fact that tr6 wag
little damage. The paBfl(mgers were
badly BhnBn Up and frightened.
