The Jury Decides That. Mrs.
Walliiuin Was Not Hurt,
A largo crowd gathered In the court
room yesterday morning to listen to the
continuation of the $2r,000-breach-of-promise
suit of Eva Wallman vs. Theo
The attorneys had had a lively tilt on
Friday, and lt was expected that the
evidence would be rather Interesting, ai
the trial proceeded, and those In attend
ance were not disappointed. The attor
neys were a little bit slow In showing
up, Mr. F. D. Wlnton, t.he pluintlff's at
torney, arriving first. He evidently ex
pected to cross-question some of the
fair sex during the day, as he was clean
shaven, his tailor suit well brushed and
his Friday's cuffs turned. None ap
peared, however, so he had his trouble
Theodore Bracker, the defendant, was
placed on the stand, and stated he had
known Mrs. Wallman for about four
yenrs that about a year ago last Janu
ary he went over to her house to help
, her fix her stovepipe, as the stove did
not throw out enough heat. They fixed
It all right., he thought, but he dropped
In the next day to see If it was draw
Ing, as a good stove ought to. It was
' this day that she put her arms around
his neck, and ("Oh! Theodore!") kissed
him. He stayed a little longer than he
did the day before, but as she had only
a loose wrapper on she cut hi3 visit
short, but Invited him to call again
The unlucky stove, though, wouldn't
warm up, and so Theodore had Eva
move down to his house and stay until
the weather got warmer. After she had
been at hla house for two . days, he
came home at night, and finding her
bedroom door- ajar, went In end stayed
until morning. He never promised to
marry her, and all she asked htm to
promise was that he wouldn't give her
away, and he didn't.
Their relations were kept up until
Juim, when he concluded to break them
off. She objected, and claimed that she
was soon to become a mother, fie told
her If this was true he would do the
suare tiling and marry her upon the
hjrth of the child. She threatened to
send him to state's prison If he didn't
marry her. They went together to
Judge Taylor, and the judge told him it
was a matter for hivn and the woman to
pottle themselves. He afterwards sent
his brother-in-law up to her house with
$200 to settle It, so as to avoid pub
licity. She never had a child by htm.
Iiq ht still refused to make her Mrs.
On cross-examlnatdon he stated that
she first came to his house when the
pervajit was sick, and then she made
ts house her home. He introduced her
tit others, and at the request of his sis
ter made her a present of an umbrella.
e knew her about seven years, but not
so much at first as he does now.
Mr. Bracker was rather nervous off
the stand, occupying his time in twist
ing his handkerchief through, his fin
ders, and wheH the plaintiff would look
tija way his eyes would be resting In
tently on the pictures of the Goddess of
Liberty, which adorn the court room

body, surely worked the county "on a

Mr., Winterhalter was next called, and
In his anxiety to testify he seemed pos
sessed to get Inside the Judge's railing,
and it took all the deputies and the at
torneys In the court room to get him

He stated he was Theodore's brother-in-law,
and that he went with $200 to
give to the plaintiff, so a3 to keep things
quiet In the neighborhood. Never heard

as to the plaintiff s life and habits, in
order to determine to what extent,' if
at all, her feelings were wounded by

Cic request of defendant's counsel the
court Instructed the jury as to what
constituted seduction, staling that in
order to establish that point the bur
den of proof would be on the plaintiff
to show that the defendant, either by
a promise to marry, or blandishments
of Borne kind, had overcome such scru
ples as the plaintiff might have had.
About half-past 10 a rumor was cir
culated that the Jury stood 11 to 1 In
favor of a verdict for $5,000. Half an
hour later word was received that an
agreement had been reached, and the
friends of Mrs. Wallman were joyful.
In consequence there was some surprise
when it was announced that the ver
dict was for the defendant. Mr. Bracker

THE LEBECK CASE.
The Justice Court Decision Sustained
As tq the Sewer Contract Claim.
Judge McBride yesterday confirmed
In part the decision rendered in the jus
tlce court in favor of Leander Lebeck
for extra work performed on Chenam.us
street, and for additional woik in put
ting in 8era on certain streets. The
court gave Judgment for $100 on ac
count of the work on Chenamus street,
and remarked in referring to the efforts
of the street committee to prevent ho
property owners pt(restei from re-
moustiatmg, that H was a, scheme that
no public officer should have been con
cerned in. It was shown that the street
committee had two profiles when the
bids for the Chenamus street work were
invited. One of these was sho.wn to the
property owne.ts wUum property was
affected, and the other was kept out of
sight and shown the contractor only,
who was Instructed to -perform the
work according to the latter and that
he would be paid for the extra worjr.

In view of the many Inquiries by the
people as to what was being done by
the water commission in reference to
selecting reservoir sites and other mat
ters looking to the better facilities for
supplying the city with a greater
umount of water, a reporter of The As-
torian was detailed yesterday to visit
In company with members of the water
commission, the several reservoir sites
in contemplation, and give to the pub
lic a thorough understanding of the
ine commission have, as stated in
these columns a few days ago, bonded
three different sites, as follows: In
Shlvely's, one on Cass street and a third
on Main street, on property owned by
A. J. Megler. The commission had first
selected block 158, in McClure's, and had
most of it bonded, but some pf the own
ers asking such exorbitant- prices and
the title being in doubt, It was deemed
advisable to abandon the Idea of pur
chasing that site.
The site in Shlvely's is 300 feet above
the level of the river, a little higher
than desirable, but as it is intended to
use the old reservoir for low service,
the slight drawback could be over
looked. This site Is on a sand ridge or
knoll at the old sand pit, and about 400
feet southwest from Mr. Shlvely's resi
dence. The knoll would have to be cut
down some 15 feet in order to get suffi
cient Burface for the size of the reser
voir, before the excavating was begun.
The formation . here is all sand, with
the excepUon of a point in the north
west corner, where it is blue soapstone,
below a depth of 19 feet. The site Is an
excellent one for a reservoir, free from
the danger of slides, and convenient to
the present reservoir, being opposite the
south end of West Seventh Btreet, on
the south side of the ridge, or, rather,
on Coxcomb Hill. It would be the
means. If purchased, of a great saving
in conduit pipe, for the reason that it
is some 2,000 feet farther east than the
other sites under consideration.
Some objections to the location may,
of course, be urged. These are, flrBt, its
proximity to the cemetery. This, how
everv is a purely imaginary drawback,
as there is a deep ravine running be
tween the cemetery and the site, so that
there could be no possible connection.
Secondly, a long, deep cut would be
necessary, and a tunnel of considerable
length, in order to get through Cox
comb Hill, in which may be found bas-
altlc rock. In the latter contingency the
cutting and tunneling would bo very ex
pensive; otherwise the removal of yel
low and blue soapstone would be
matter of small moment. The grading,
also, of this site would be expensive.
The Cass street Bite Is in a basin on
block 6, in Hustler & Aiken's, just on
the south side of the ridge. The forma'
tlon is white sand for eleven feet, "over
lying a hard sandstone, which would
make an exceedingly good bottom for
a reservoir. For half its depth a reser
voir at this point would be above the
ground, " while the remainder would be
made by the grade of surrounding
streets. The cost of excavating would,
therefore, be very light. There would
be some 800 feet of tunneling, from, the
reservoir to near Eleventh street, on the
north side of the ridge, and a short cut
at the north and south ends of the tun
nel. The distributing pipe could be laid
to Ninth street for much less cost than
from either of the other sites, there be
ing a ravine running down Cass street
to Ninth. This site Is 250 feet high,
