"The laws are on the Statute Books and
Their Enforcement is the Duty of the
Oflicers," says Con,acilaian Hetilt'.o.
A meeting of the city courcii was
held Monday evening, the real pur
pose of which was to give the city
attorney an opportunity to reply to
the communication made by the
chief of police to the council at its
regular -October meeting, wherein
the chief stated that the city attor
ney had refused to prepare the cow
plaint necessary to tha arrest of
Adam Assel for alleged violation of
the Sunday clcaing law. However,
much of the time of the meeting
was consumed in a desultory dis
cussion of the law itself and its en
forcement; matters which had no
place lefore 'that body. In the
language of councilman Henkle:
"The laws are on the statute books
and their enforcement is the duly of
the otheers, and the whole matter
is out of place in the council." The
kernel of the matter before the
council is this: What is the power
and authority of the council, and
what is the duty and authority of
police officers, and of the city attor
ney in the matter of enforcement of
Under the. charter of the city of
Corvallis the common council has
power and authority "to pass any
ordinance Bot repugnant to the
laws of the United States or the
law of the state of Oregon necessary
or convenient for carrying such
power or authority, or any part
thereof, into effect."
When the council has enacted an
ordinance and it has gone into effect,
the charter provides that police
officers "may make arrests for
breach of the peace or commission
of a crime within the limits of the
city, with or without a warrant, as
a peace officer may do under the
laws of the state, and must exe
cute all processes issued by the
police judge or directed to him by
any magistrate in this state in
ciiminal matters',' and shall exer
ercise such additional powers as
may be conferred upon him by or
Here in substance is the duty
and authority of council and police
officers. An arrest having been
made, the culprit must be taken
before the police judge who has
jurisdiction of all crimes and mis
demeanors defined by ordinance of
the eity of Corvallis, and "has the
authority of a justice of the peace
within the limits of the city, in
both civil and criminal matters.
Should the defendant plead "not
guilty" when arraigned before the
police judge, the law piovides that
he may have a jury trial. - ;
-Then,' and not till then, are the
services of the city .attorney really
in demand. A prudent officer may
seek advice from the city attorney
whore there is doubt that the law
has been violated, but the city at
torney IS Under no legal obligation
to give it. And there is no service
in his power to perform in the
matter of assisting in the apprehen
sion and arrest of offenders, which
the statutes of the state do not con
fer upon any other attorney. He is
simply an attorney retained by the
city to "give his advice and opinion
in writing concerning any matter in
which the city is interested, wnea
required by the mayor or council or
any committee of the council" and
to "attend to all actions, suits and
proceedings ift which: the city is
legally interested, and attend to the
prosecution of all persons charged
with a violation of a city ordinance."
We have gone to some length to
explain these matters, which it
would seem all should understand,
but that they do not is clearly
proved when the council is asked to
mediate a difference between the
city attorney and a police officer.
All this has nothing to do
with; the Sunday elosing law,
and should have nothing to do
with it. The council has said
plainly, by ordinance, that, it
shall not be lawful for any. per
son td sell or in any wise dispose
of, witHin the corporate limits of
the city of Corvallis, any spirit
ous or fermented malt-liquors,
or to keep open any place whete
spintous or malt liquors are
sold, on the first day of the week,
eoinmonly called Sunday, and
the fiduneil can do no more. It
is the duty of an officer to arrest
any person who violates this or
dinance. If the defendant
stands trial and the ordinance is
found to be unconstitutional it
can and should be repealed. If
he is f$und guiltr there, is pun
ishment provided for the offense,
It is reasonable to suppose that
the council was in earnest when
it passed these ordinances, and
that it will repeal them when it
no longer, inletids to support its
officers in enforcing them. ,.

The Herald says'; -
"Last night, after an absence
of -five years, Bert Van Cleve, a
native Albany boy, returned to
his old home with his Own com
pany of players and. presented
"Jerry, tha TWip," to a packed
hoasc. It was standing room
only from early in the evening
and not one ia the entire 'audi

"Bert comes back to us a pol
ished and genteel actor, and is
accompanied by a clever lot of
show people. They are 3voung,
energetic and industrious and do
their best to please. 'Jerry, the
Tramp," is a melodrama with a
tinge of humor running through
the lines. It is the 'story of a
beautiful young girl who suffers
because she is loved by two mea,
one a trua sweetheart, who is a
man ot few words, but acts at
the proper titfle, and the other
is a scheming Scoundrel, with
murderous plots in his mind at
every tarn. Miss Babe Fischer
is a pleasing and winsome little
lady and acts the part remarka
bly well. She, won the approval
of the asdienee from the first act
and they welcomed her appear

Selections from Roman History
k Literal Translation from Eutropius
by C. Macl ean, Ph. D. The
Heroism of Regains.
After these rmsfortatea the Carthagin
ians requested Regains, the general
whom they had taken captive, to proceed
to Home, and to obtain peace from the
Romans, and to exchangs captives (lit.
to make aa exchange of captiveB). When
he had come to Rome, nnd had been
brought into-the senate, he did rot act
at all aa a Roman; but eaid that he had
censed to bo a Roman from the day on
which he had come into the poire? of the
Africans, And consequently he released
his wife from her marriage vows, and
advised tha senate that no peace hould
be made with the Carthaginians. For
they, broken up with so many misfor
tunes,, have no hope ; (and as for himself)
he is not of so much importance that so
many thousands of captives should be
returned on account of one, an old man,
too, and a few mea who had been taken
captives from the Romans. And sov he
prevailed. For no one gave a hearing to
the Carthaginians who had come to seek
peace. He himself went back to Car
thage, and when the Romans assured
him that they would keep him at Rome,
he said that he would not remain in that
city in which, after he had served-as-a-slave
the Carthaginians,- he could not
have the rights of an upright citizen.
Having, therefore, returned to Africa he
was put to death by all sorts of torture.
BATTLE OP L1LYBAEUM EXCHANGE
OF CAPTIVES. "
In the consulships of Cains Lutatius
Catulus and Aulas Postumius Albinns,
in the twenty-third year of the Punid
war, a war was begun at the instance of
Catulus against the Carthaginians. He
(Catulus), set out with three hundred
ships' to Sicily; and the Carthaginians
equipped four hundred against him.
Never was a battle fought on the sea
with such forces. Catulus embarked on
his ship in a condition of bodily weak
ness, for he had been wounded in a form
er battle. The battle was fought with
the skill and valor so characteristic of
the Romans lit. with the great bravery
of the Romais ingenti virtute Roman
orum. For fcixty-three ships of the
Carthaginians were captured and one
hnndred and twenty-five sunkj thirty
two thousand of the enemy were cap
tured and thirteen thousand killed ; and
an enormous quantity of gold, silver and
other booty was brought into the posses
sion (lit. power of the Romans. Of the
Roman fleet twelve ships were sunk.
This battle was fought on tire 10th of
March. The Carthaginians at once sued
for peace, and peace was granted to them.
The Roman captives who were being
held by the Carthaginians were returned.
The Carthaginians also begged that
those captives from Africa, whom the
Romans were holding, should beallowed
to be redeemed. The senate ordered
that those who were in public custody
should be given without a price, but that
those who were held by private individ
uals might return to Carthage on the re
turn to their masters of their price, and
that this price should be paid out of the
treasury rather than by the Carthagin
ians. Additional Local.
