The Oregon Pacific case was decided at
Coryallis late Saturday evening and
Fulierton, tbe new receiver, Mr. Gest and
others came to Albany on a special train.
The arguments before Judge J'ullerton
were long and interesting ones. J udge
Bryson appeared for the Farmers' Loan &
Trust Co., trustees for the bondholders, C.
H. Gest, of Fay & Gest of Seattle, ap
peared for the Wharton-Blair reorganiza
tion party of bondbo'ders. Judge Bron
augh appeared for tbe receiver and Mr.
Linthlcum for the National Park Bank
and Vermylie & Co., of New York, hold
ers of certificates. Mr. E. W. Hadl.y,
recently assistant manager, was appo nted
receiver and qualified at Eugene to-day.
The request for a postponement of the
sale for three months was refused, and
the sale will take place to-morrow. Tbe
matter of postponement though will be
argued on tbe 16th, in cr.se of no sale
nbw, aa there will probably not be. Under
tbe arnangemeat $75,000 in receiver's
certificates will be bought by Mr. Gest's
clients at once, and the men paid. The
result is highly gratifying and means a
good deal for tbe future of the road. Mr.
dadley will do well to appoint a new
manager at once. The sooner the com
plete, exit of the Hogg faction is chron
icled the better. Whatever they did in
the early work of the road their more re
cent management justifies this statement.

Another Bubble Bursts.
For some years the Times-Mountaineer
has warned tbe people against certain
schemes originated by tbe founder of North
Dallas alias Grand Dalles, and the state
ments of this paper bave usually been veri
fied. Tbe following from the Evening Tele
gram shows that another of these "schemes'
is about te collapse:
Clark C. Foster, of Saginaw, Mioh., has
commenced suit in tbe United States circuit
conrt against O. D. Taylor, of The Dalles,
for the recovery of $30,000 cash and four
promissory notes of $30,000 each.
It is alleged by the plaintiff that Septem
ber 23. 1891. Taylor agreed with Foster, A
E Dunham. C. L. Fay, A. T. fligby and G
R. Bnrnside to sell to a corporation to be
organized by the party 2500 acres of fruit
land situated near i ne uanca, ior iou.uuu.
Taylor was to hold one-half of tbe stock
and the other five members one-tenth each
Bv the terms of a contract entered into
that time, Taylor was to receive $30,000
cash, while the remainder should be paid as
soon as stock books could be opened
sales of shares effected.
THE PROPERTY DESCBIBED.
The property to be conveyed was de
scribed by Taylor as the Lair Hill ranch,
the Wilson ranch and the St. Barnes ranch.
By tbe terms of the contract five one-tenth
holders were to pay $15,000 each to Taylor,
though any one member or all could drop
out bv forfeiting S3U00, and the lorttited
share should become Taylor's property
Another clause in the contract enabled lay
lor to disnose of bis holdings, an 1 conse
quently be stild two one-tenth shares to F.
St laser and. A. Hcisle, and received $3000
rrom each. Later the St Barnes ranch was
stricken out of the contract, and October
23, 1891, the syndicate organized and in
corporated the "Columbia River Fruit Com.
nany of Grand Dalles, Wash., and of The
Dalles. Or.." with a capital of $1,000,000
divided into 2500 shares. A. E. Dunbam,
having received power of attorney for
plaintiff and others, met with the defendant
jit Ihe Dalles ana elected a ooara oi airec
tors and officers, with Taylor as president,
Foster as vice president. Fay as secretary
and Burnside as treasurer.
HELD WITHOUT NOTICE.
The meeting, tbe plaintiff claims, was
held withont any notice having been given,
At a meeting of directors held tbe same
day, A. E. Dunham was elected general
manager, with A. T. Higby superintendent.
The plaintiff claims that the alleged organi
zation was irregularly mado and is void,
and that it was never completed, and h is
no legal existence, yet November 12, 1891,
a meeting was held at The Dalles in the ab-
n- e of the plaintiff and puruhased tbe
2500 acres of land from Taylor or took a
bond for a aeed for tbe same, and Mr Dun
bar gave the company's notes for $120,000,
in addition to the $30,000 already paid.
It is further alleged that the property
described in the bond is not owned or was
not owned by Taylor, except the Wilson
ranch, and that it was covered by a mort
gage tor $3732, and that Taylor ia wholly
insolvent, aud not responsible for damages.
The plaintiff claims thst Taylor is finan
cially embarrassed, and unlets restrained
from so doi.ig, will dispose of the notes.
Therofore, it is asked that Taylor be com
manded to deliver up the notes at once, that
they be cancelled, and that judgment be
given for the cash paid bim.
ing for these letters will please give the
satisfactory to know that this is a less nuin- J-dateen which -they were advertised:

Alive to Their Interests.
The people of Pendleton aie always
alive in matters concerning their inter
ests, and they are now making an active
niqvement to bave the branch of the in
sane asylum located in that ci'.y. A notice
signed by tbe prominent business men,
with this end in view, of which the fol
lowing is the import, has been presented
to tbe commission :
"Tbe undersigned, having been ap
pointed as a committee by tbe Commer
cial Association ot Pendleton to confer
with the commission authorized by law
to make a location for the branch insane
asylum, and to procure if possible the
location ot that institution in the vicinity
of Pendleton.and in order to intelligently
confer with said commission, respectfully
ask all- parties who have lands suitable

The Dalles is advantageously located
for this institution, and it is time that our
business men were making some effort in
this direction. Will The Dalles remain
dormant and asleep when this golden op
portunity to advance her material inter
ests is presented?

During the bearing of the O. P. cause in
the cirouit court last Saturday afternoon,
ex-conductor Beman,' who has a claim on
tbe O. P. for many months' services over
due, strolled into tbe conrt room, walked
inside the bar, and in the full assurance ot
American citizenship, proceeded to address
the conrt in behalf of unpaid employes.
His voice was a little rusty, but be was
heard patiently to tbe end, and wben Sheriff
Osborn requested him to sit down he po
litely told the sheriff to mind his own busi
ness, that he would sit down when he got
ready. His demurrer to the sheriff's com
plaint "as sustained by the. court snd the
matter remained in statuo quo until conrt
adjourned a few minutes later. Subse

the foot of tbe back stairs in the court
house and chased him up the flight, and
jait as the pair were about to enter the
i.onrt room at full speed Sheriff Osborn ap
peared on the scene and filed another de
murrer, which in the absence of the court
was sustained and dismissed Bemen's case.

NOTE THE RESULT GF
From the Daily Chronicle of Feb. 18th:
Of Interest to Merchants.
The suit of A. S. Collins and Mrs. A.
S. Collins against H. Herbring of this
city, which was to come before the jury
yesterday morning, was again postponed.
This suit against one of our oldest and
best-known dry goods merchants creates
considerable comment in commercial cir
cles. It appears that Mr. and Mrs. A. S.
Collins obtained under false pretenses
and promises at the end of the year 1891,
goods to the amount of f 50.80 from the
defendant; but instead of paying the bill
as agreed, they shortly afterwards left
the city by night and moved to California.
Last spring Mr. Herbring learned that
all their household goods, etc., were in
the hands of the sheriff of Wasco countv.
and consequently placed a second attach
ment upon the goods held by the shentt.
as no compromise could be obtained by
defendant And now come the plain
tiffs and sue through their attorney Judge
A. S. Bennett, the defendant, for the snm
of lI75- We will watch this suit, when
it comes before the jury, as we think it is
one of great interest to storekeepers.
From the Daily Timtt-llauntaineer of Feb. tUh:
The case of A. S. Collins vs. H. Her
bring was on trial in the Circuit Court to
day, and the jury empanelled were E.W.
Trout, Geo. Joles, A. Bettingen, Jr., Geo.
W. Miller, S. B. Adams, James Harper,
W. C. Hansell, John Wood. Argument
was had this morning on a motion to
non-suit, made by defendant's counsel,
which was taken under advisement until
alternoon, when the Judge overruled the
A portion of these goods were sold last motion. The facts appear to be that the
LiecemDer Dy ine snerin 01 vvasco county, piaintiit leit this city owing Mr. Herbring,
and he attached property for the debt.
After the sale of the attached property
the defendant attempts to set aside the
sale and sues Mr. Herbring for damages,
claiming that the proceedings were not
technically legal The razor-edge tech
nicalities of law, we presume, will always
remain, but it works great hardships on
creditors, in many instances, to be de
barred from collecting their just claims
from the commission of a clerical error
or the misinterpretation of a dubious

The suit of A. S. Collins and Mrs. A.
S. Collins vs. H. Herbring came to a ter
mination yesterday afterooon. the iurv
rendering a verdict in favor of the plain
tiffs. Mr. Herbring considers his defeat
as a Jait accompli, ana is now more than
ever convinced that he has to stick to his
old rule and motto to sell dry goods
cheap and for cash only.
