Judge Grants Them Right to Block
Road Against Harriman,
Moro, Or., Aug. 9. Judge Butler late
Saturday night dissolved the temporary
injunction issued aaginst Porter Bros.
This meant that Twohy Bros, will not
be permitted to cross the Gurtx ranch
with supply teams and equipment for
the Deschutes Railway company.
Not to be outdone, Harriman'a legal
representatives at once filed condemna
tion proceedings against Porter Bros,
in an effort to force an entrance to the
disputed territory through the property
of the r rivals.
Arguments in the injunction ease oc
cupied two days in the circuit court
here. A night tession was also held
to expedite the hearing. There was a
long array of legal talent for both eon
testing parties.
The evidence showed that the plain
tiffs secured certain rights to go over
these certain lands with their wagons
and outfit, and on the strength of
these rights, expended $8,000 in con
structing a grade down the canyon of
the Deseuhtea to the railroad right of
way. But no deeds were taken by the
plaintiffs from the land owners, nor
any agreements in writing. Porter
Bros, saw the opportunity and purchas
ed from the land owners the lands over
which this road ran, and immediately
upon securing poseeaaion under these
contracts stopped the Deschutes Rail
way company from sending in supplies
over the road.
While the temporary injunction was
in force, the Deschutes Railway com
pany had been sending in about 10 to
15 wagonloads of provisions to the riv
er each day.
