SEARS WILL APPEAL
Suit Against Dunbar Will Now Be
Tried In Lower Court on Its
Merits,
J. K. Sears has won another round
in his fight against former Secretary
of State Dunbar to compel that officer
to pay to the state of Oregon all of the
monoys collected by him for fees. The
Supreme Court has dismissed Dun
bar's appeal, and the case will now be
tried upon Its merits. Tuesday s
Statesman says:
"After twenty days have expired the
mandate of the supreme court will be
sent down to the lower court and then
the case will be heard upon its merits.
This means there will be an account
ing, which will show all of the fees
that were collected by Secretary of
State Dunbar during bis term in
office, covering a period of eight years.
The public will then know for certain
how much the office paid. After this
accounting is taken the case will no
doubt go into the supreme court
again, where will be decided the
question, do the fees belong to the
defendant or to the state of Oregon?
Whatever may be the decision
of the supreme court on tnis
point of the question, of the amount of
fees taken out of that office by the de
fendant will be settled. The attorneys
for plaintiff assert that the accounting
will show that more than $100,000
have been thus collected."
S. P. Kimball is over from Salem,
superintending the repairs and Im
provements on his big prune evapora
tor. The capacity of the dryer will be
increased one-half, by adding six tun
nels and putting in rollers instead of
cars. Mr. Kimball was obliged to
turn away fruit last year, but with
his enlarged dryer he will be able to
take care of the product of his own
orchard and all outside fruit that is
offered this year. He is now paying
50 cents a bushel for Italian prunes.

A BANKRUPT FAMiLY.
BY J. DEAN COLLINS.
We are a bankrupt family,'
Our silver shekels flit,
To help the needy newspapers
We've nought to show for It.
To get a China tea set fine,
My grandma she spent ten
Years' Income on the Daily Screech
And never got It then.
My g'-andpap for a typewriter,
Rustled with all his might
Subscriptions for the Weekly Howl,
But the darned machine won't write.
In helpin' Parson Jones's son
To climb up Fame's bright ladder,
Pa paid ten years subscription
To the Bungtown Daily Bladder.
My sister Sal, she worked herself
Almost to death, I guess,
To win the "lovely woman" prize
Give by the Snorter Press.
John spent ten dollars for a gun,
Give by the Daily Ram,
But Jake he failed to get the one
From the Evening Yellergram.
I done my best all summer long,
Solicitln' the town, ,
But only got a life subscribe
To the Blast of Bellerstown.
An' ma, when she was workln,
She broke the baby's bank
And used it for a seaside trip
Give by the Weekly Crank.
An' now, by threats of bankruptcy,
The family's almost daft,
An pa says he won't have no more
Of tEat "d d subscription graft"
