Tho following decision was rendered
by Judge Bellinger, in the United States
(iintrict court, at Portland, on Saturday,
Nov. 4tli in the cane of the United States
vh Jas. J. and It. J. JenningH, charged
with interfering with one C. M. Collier
who waH attempting to make a survey
of mining premises owned by and in the
possession of Chas. Bruneau and the
Jennings Bros., the same being rendered
upon a stipulation of facta in the cane
submitted to the court by the attorneys
for the defendants and the United States
TUK COUUt'b OPINION".
"Court : In thi? case the complaining
witness went upon the promlseain con
troversy for tli5 purpose of making a
plat to be used in an action then pend
ing in the state court. The facts, us
stipulated, show that at the time he

of the court, and without authority from
the surveyor general. I am of the
opinion that, not being so authorized,
bis entry, or attempted entry, waa un
lawful. I do not decide the question as
to whether the authority of the surveyor
gonerai, or an order from the surveyor
general would have been sufficient to
authorize such entry. It is a question
1 in my mind as to whether the party, un
der thoia circumstances, should not
have had 11 n order of the court in which
the action is pending to a tthorize such
entry as was made in this case."
At the hearing of this case the at
tornev lor tne government made a
strong argument and cited the court all
the authorities at his command, but

torneys for the defendants and the
arguments made in ttieir belia'lt there

promises but to discharge the defend

The decision places quite a different
phase upon this question to that at

published at Roaeburg, Oregon, called
the Review, und whose information, it
ia apprehended, has boen universally
obtained from the parties who are con
ducting the litigation against Bruneau
and tho Jennings' and their attorneys
and henchman, who apparently have a
strong pull on that paper and are usjng
its columns to the greateit possible ad
vantage, and with tho apparent design
of creating a preju lico against the said

county, whore the controversy over tho
mining property in dispute will be
Thia decision is confirmation of the
opinion that the facts in this case have
been wonderfully perverted, and leads to
tho conclusion that some of the wit
nesses before the U. S. grand jury must
have not told the whole truth, or told
more than was true in order to secure
tho indictment of these defendants,
thinking that it would have a depress
ing effect upon them, and crystalize
public opinion in favor of their opo
nentslnthe civil litigation that is now
pending between said parties.
There is a strong, undercurrent of
feeling in this community against the
course of conduct that has been pursued
by the plaintiffs in the litigation bo

fact that it is tho consensus

of opinion that they havo resorted
to the criminal arm of the law in order
to create a public sentiment againit

WHAT TJIK ORKOON'IAN 8AY8.
Sunday's Oregonian. November o, has
R. J. and J. J. Jennings, operating
mining property in the Bohemia dis
trict, known as the Helena group, were
acquitted in the United States district
court yesterday of the charge of resist
ing an attempt to make a survey there
on. C. M. Cnllier, claiming to be a
United Stales deputy mineral surveyor,
was the complaining witness. Judgo
Bellinger, in passing upon the case,
held that it was necessary in order to
make a survey of mineral claims thus
being litigated, and in the peaceablo,
and, to all intents, lawful possession of a
party, to obtain an order of the court in
which the case was pending for trial of
It appeared in the hearing that Jen
nings brothers h ve been in the
peaceable possession of the Helena
group for over three years, expending
during that time the sum of $25,000 in
rv. ining drifts and building a stamp
mill. A man named Warner raised the
claim of prior loca ion, and brought a
suit in the court at Roseburg to try tho
title, and sent C . M. Collier to make tho
survoy, without procuring any order
from the court to have the same done.
Jenninga objected to bis making any
survey, claiming the legal title to the
property. Collier left off, came before
the United States grand jury in Portland
and had Jennings brothers indicted fby'
ordering him to- desist. The court's
acquittal was upon tlie ground that tho
surveyor had no order Ijoiu the tribunal
at Roseburg. where the case of cyy
ship was pending, to perform thojes to
which placed Collier in the light ot r.f
passer.. It also appeared during the
caBe that Warner, during tho period of
three years the Jennings had possession
and were improving tho mine, had been
cognizant of the fact, but had not made
adverse claims until tho property began
to develop valuable leads.
