THE JURY DISAGREED.

qnlttaf. , ',' -'
Five for aequital, and one for
conviction.. There iswhtre the
jury stood on the Itst ballot in
the case tried before Justice Hoi-
gate last Saturday, wherein
Dr. R. O. Lesson was bein
tried for an alleged assault on
John Ingle on the picnic grounds
near Philomath, July 4th.. The
six men chosen to determine tha
guilt or inflocenca of tke defend
ant were:- H. W. Hall, Alex
Rennie, M. h. Hubler, Getf. Eg-
lin, S. Chipman, T.J. Creighton.
Attorneys Bryson and J. N. Mc
Padden. apptared for the state.
while Attorney E. L. Bryan rep
resented Dr. Ivoggon.
The trial occupied the greater
part of Saturday, beingfcalled at
10 a. ra. and going to tha jury
about 3 p. ra. The prosecution
called but three witnesses,- M.
Peister, L. Henkle .and Ed.
Allen. The latter, however,
when on the stand recalled cer
tain material facts which he for
got to tell the prosecuting Attor
ney when being examined. pre
vious to the swearing eat of the
warrant, tnd he proved a better j
witness for the defense than for
the state. " -

tified in Dr. Loegaa's behalf, i i
The case was a pectliar one, I
and the circumstances surround-1
iag it, most unfortunate. The
testimony on both sides wis con
flicting and in some instances
strong prejudice was much in
evidence. "Everybody knows
Ingle and Loggan are not on
good terms," said Mr. Becker,
while on the stand, and this
seems to have been the keynote
to the present difficulty. .- Mr.
Ingle testified that he and I5g-
gou had nan trouble in tne
Woodman lodge aud relations
between them had been strained,
and Dr. Loggon gave testimony
to the sama effect. So far as the
difficulty on the Fourth leading
up to the alleged assault is con
cerned the facts seem to be these:
: The Woodmen lodge of Philo
math had rented the grove west
of Philomath, for the purpose of
holding exercises there on the
Fourth of July. Dr. . IoggOu
was appointed caiet marshal 01
the day by the lodge, and he se
lected as his aids Ed and Marsh
Allen.'.. A parade was given
which completed its march at the
picnio grounds and the literary
and athletic program was tinder
the auspices of the Woodmen.
Among those who attended was
Mr. John W. Ingle. Some years
ago he was expelled lrom the
Woodman lodge ef Philomath,
but no passwords were taken up
at the entrance to the picnio
grounds and Mr. Ingle was ad
mitted. Early in the morning
he had pinned his Woodman
badge upon the lapel of his coat,
but while bona fide members of
the order wore the regulation
side out, Mr. Ingle displayed the
mourning badge. ,. Aside from
this unwonted ' breaon of eti
quette his conduct was not of a
nature to give offense. Nor was
official notice taken of the mis
use ef the badge , until Mr. Ingle
appeared on the pienie grounds
and numerous complaints had
been entered. Then Dr. Loggan,
in company with his aids, ap
proached Mr. Ingle and said
"Take that badge off; Urn it
around; or leave the grounds."
Thut far there is perfect harmony
in the testimony ef principals
and witnesses. Dr. Leggan
sayt he spote these words calmly
and delioerately. nr. Ingle
tays they were spoken in the
tone he uses when he is angry.
Witnesses for the defense testifi
ed that Mr. -Ingle immediately
slapped his hand upon Dr. Log
gan' s shoulder. That Dr. Log
gan reached up and jerked the
badge off of Mf. Ingle's Ooat, at
the same time shoving Mr. Ingle
back. The- latter again caught
Dr. Loggan by the shoulder say
ing, " V oa are under arrest sir.
I am an officer of the Jaw;
Gome ; and go with me." Mr.
Ingle and witnesses for the prose
cution claim that when first
spoken to by Dr. Loggon, - Mr,
Ingle waved the doctor back and
said, 'Keep i your hands off; go
away ana aliens . to your own
business." Thereupon Dr.. Log
gon jerked tae badge off. Ingle
then slapped hit hand upon Leg.
gotr s snonider and, being a dep
uty shtriff, placed him under ar
- Mr. Ingle charges Dr. Loggofl
with assault; when he jerked the
badge fly and under the laws of
Oregon there is no question that
an assault was committed. : . The
unfortunate part of the whole
thing is that the statutes of this
state do not make it an . offense
for a man
to wear the badge of
any order of whfc! he is not a
member. The only order pro
tected now in this way is the
OrauJ Armv of the Republic.
It is to.frai.. sgreed that the
Woodmen had a ptxfict tight to
eject any one from the pienic
grounds on the day of their cele
bration, and that anv one would
uavc uct u inula iy jublillcu in
abating the invitation for dis
turbance held out by Mr. Ingle,
but that in the eye of the law
that gentleman had as. good a
right to wear a Woodman badge
in any shape he saw fit, as he
had his hat or coat, and to divest
him of it was as much a crime as
forcibly to remove any portion of

The Mill ace Bridge.
There is wide spread dissatisfac
tion among farmers living along the
road leading to Monroe concerning
the bridge just' completed across
the mill race south of town. In
conversation . with the Gazette
man regarding this matter Judge
woodward raid yesterday: "The
court and' commissioners are not
satisfied with th& present form of
the bridg. The old bridge was
about 160 feet in leHgth. Plans
submitted for the new structure de
veloped the fact that by swinging
the bridge directly across the race
and placing the approaches' at a
slight angle, the bridge could be
shortened 50 Or 60 feet. This plan
was adopted in the interest of econ
omy. After work had been com
menced on the bridge, it was dis
covered that if drawn as closa to
the fence as originally intended it
would obstruct the entrance to the
road used by H. F. Fischer across
the fields. This and consequent al
terations in the plans by the build
er gave us quite a different bridge
from what was contemplated. We
are having earth placed at the ap
proaches of the bridge which will
correct the difficulty ia a measure,
and the next term of court the com
missioners will take some action to
place the structure in a satisfactory
The little 24-iach cylinder
threshing machine of the O A O
was in use part of last Thursday
and Friday. At this time a
quantity of rape was threshed.
A year ago last June about a yi
acres of rape wai - sown at the
college for experimental .pur
poses. It did well, and during
last fall and winter furnished ex
cellent pasture. The growth of
rape is quite rank and it is eat
after the manner of corn, with a
knife. The seeds lie one -after
another in a small pod that re
sembles the pod of mustard. It
is said that rape will grow On
the most arid soil and that it will
thrive on what is known as
"white land." At the prices
quoted for rape- seed it is esti
mated that more than $2oo
worth of rape was threshed at

matter that is well worth the in
vestigation of our farmers. Rape
is a good thing if half that is
claimed for it is true.
