SETTLED OUT OF COURT.
Case of Men Recently Arrested
Held From Jury.
As is quite well understood at
a meeting last week the city
council took steps to annull and
render void what was known
as the old Pittman water fran
chise for the City of Corvallis,
which had been , acquired by the
present water company of ' this
city, Dr. Farra being the head
6i: the company. This action
was taken in view of the fact
that the city recently elected to
establish and maintain a gravity
system of her own, T and the ad
ditional fact that Dr.' Farra was
employing men to ditch and, lay
water mains at the time the city
took such action to annull the
franchise. It may " also be con
sidered in a sense as a' sort of
preliminary to actions that may

Dr. Farra to cease laying pipe
and on the continuance of his
men at the task set them they
were placed under arrest Monday
afternoon and cited to appear
before Police Judge Yates Tues
day morning- As we understand
the matter, Attorney E. E. Bry
sonj who represented the city in
this case, consented to a . post
ponement of trial until 1 o'clock
Wednesday afternoon, in order
that counsel retained by the
water company could arrive At
torneys W. E. Yates, of Van
couver, wash,, and J. K. Wyatt,
of Albany, appeared in due sea
son to conduct the defense.
The matter of attending the
men under arrest, somewhere
near a dozen, was to have been
argued before a jury WednesT
day afternoon and the jury had
been empanelled, but the mat
ter was adjusted out of court.
Attorneys Bryson and Wyatt ar
rived at a conclusion satisfactory
to themselves and what would in
their minds be agreeable to
those whom they represented.
On Mr. Wyatt's securing the'
support of W. E. Yates, his con
frere, there vras conducted what
may be termed a compromise..
By the terms of this under
standing it was agreed that the
men who had been arrested -for
performing the labor of laying
the pipe should not be prosecuted
and Dr. Farra was allowed to go
ahead and complete the work
undertaken by his company! It
was thoroughiy understood, how
ever, that in no way was this to
be construed as establishing a
precedent in the event of any
future action which might occur.
This seems a wise proceeding on
the part of the attorneys for both
sides, as it avoids a good deal .of
expense for a trial that would
not provide a settlement of the
