"That death was caused bv eunsho'f wounds inflicted by bam Case, and in the mind of the Coroner's jury it was a case ot selt-detense and justifiable homicide," was the ver dict rendered by the coroner's jury at Oregon Citiy on Tuesday, at the inquest held over tllie body of Ernest Case, killed Sunday night near his home in Park Place, bam Case ap peared with his counsel, George C. Brownell, before Justice of the Peace Sievers for the preliminary examina tion and was bound over to the grand jury on a charge of second degree murder. He waived examination. The grand jury will meet next Monday. Ihe browieiB were tormerly residents of Polk county. The trouble between Ernest, on one side, and the rest of the Case family 01 seven girls and tour boys, began during the childhood of the boys. Er nest was the youngest of the boys and, Cassius declared, was always taking advantage 01 his brothers and sisters. "Sam and I stayed on the iorm and worked so that Ernest could go to school," he said. "Sam was a good boy and we were willing to sacrifice our own time so that our brother could get a schooling. We believed that after Ernest had gone through school he would help us with his education. That was all we ex pected for reward. But when Ernest came from school he used the learning we had helped him secure to get Ihe best of us. He has cheated us time and time again." Labon Case, an early pioneer of Polk county, was their father. He took up a donation land claim of 640 acres and a timber claim of 300 acres in early days, which, Cassius said, rapidly increased in value when the county was settled. " Ernest wanted to leave the farm as soon as he was of age and go to town. When he was 21 years old he married against the wishes of my parents. Ernest later was divorced, opened a restaurant in Corvallis and finally married one of his waitresses. A year after his sec ond wife died, he married again, this time a sister of Sam's wire." For the last five years the illfeeling be tween Sam and Ernest has been stead ily growing stronger. Even their wives were forbidden to speak to each oth er, Cassius said, although they were sisters. The Polk county estate of his par ents and the estate of Samuel Nealy, an uncle, were taken by Ernest from his brothers, Cassius said. The long series of injuries and insults added to the feeling between Sam and Er nest, Cassius explained, until about a year ago Ernest is said to have threatened his brother's life. Of the 12 children of Mr. and Mrs. Labon Case, only six are now living. They are George Case, in the east; Tom Case of Lebanon, Cassius and Sam Case of Park Place, Mrs. Bell Booth F., a Jersey, owned by N. H.

BLODGETT COUPLE ELOPES. After Attending Sunday School Lov ers Head for Canada. Corvallis Gazette: Edwin John son, aged 28, eloped yesterday from Blodgett with fifteen-year-old Ruth Thompson, daughter of J. A. Thomp son, of that place. Johnson met the girl at the Sunday school hour yes terday and they went to Sunday school, but lett shortly before the school was dismissed. They were seen to go over the hill irom the church where it is believed Johnson had an automobile waiting, and that they came to Corvallis or Albany and took the Oregon Electric tor Portland. The father of the girl was away from home for the day, returning late in the evening. Learning of the elope ment of his daughter, Mr. Thompson boarded the excursion train last night, came to Corvallis, where he was met at the train by Sheriff Gella'lly and the two went to Portland in search of the elopers. They are reported to have started for British Columbia. The girl is under age of consent, and the parents objected to her keeping company with Johnson. Johnson is Blodgett man.

'A half gallon of crenra will cost Mrs. Ellen lliiniiirult $."(( and court msts, according to the findinirs of a jury in Judge Belt's court Vesteidav afternoon. The unfortunate woman made away with a jar of cream from the Mclaughlin ranch south of Inde pendence, in which vicinity the Hun- nirutt family is more or less notor ious ror its lawlessness. It took Judije N. I Butler for the defendant and J. E. Sibley for the state only a short time to present their eases and Ihe jury was out several hours in finding a verdict. It is probable and has nntil one o'clock to pay the amount. She was given nntil 1 o'clock today to raise the money. Her son Harry was senlenced earlier in the week to a term in the peni entisry and another son Kmiie was paroled from that institution more than a month ago. The latter is also nder indictment at this term of court. Mrs. Hunnirutt is a frail lit tle woman, rather old considering the P. Bateman, who visited at the State fair last week and talked with Mrs. Winnie Braden. More than 20 counties have already taken space for representation, and it is apparent that long before the opening ot the show, October 2., all of the exhibit space will have been rpscrven. lestenlay s meeting of the Members" council dealt with the Man ufacturers' and Land Products show. Imperial Dining Room Closed. After having conducted the Imper ial hotel for the past six months, C. E. tiiiyt, proprietor, closed the dining room last night and left this morning with his family and personal effects tor Cortland. He has left the hotel to his successor, w hoever that may be. The owner of the lease and furnish ings, a Portland man, is expected to arrive here within a day or two to make arrangements to continue the hostelry. It is not probable thai the hotel will be closed permanently. Searching for Escaped Prisoners. Sheriff Orr has sent descriptions of Lee McGinnis and L. W.

MiVunnis and Carson are the two county prisoners who made their es cape from the county jail on Monday. Visitor Spraini Ankle.

October 30. This is an exposition ar rangement and on that day all the honors that can be heaped upon 'he Beaver state by the exposition ofn cials will be forthcoming. This means that the chief dignitaries, as well as the lesser luminaries, of this greatesr of all fairs will don silk tiles and other prescribed paraphernalia, gntli er themselves into automobiles tnd with Governor Withycombe in the rront car, will tollow the exposition and marine bands to the Oregon building, and there in the shadow of the modern Parthenon wax eloouen over the glorious achievements of the state to the northward. Governor Withycoinlie, whose business in life it has been to mane two blades of grass grow where but one has grown before, will probably be nski-.l to plant a tree where none has grown before, and in the name of the great state of Oregon he may receive a plaque, or, more aristocraticillv spenking, a "eommemoiiitive medal." The guns at the big forts will prob ably boom, the battleship Oregon mav let loose some six inch salutes, flags will fly, Oregon cider will flow and at no time, before or since, will the Ore gon building be in such gala attire. After the parade which the people at the Oregon braiding and the Ore gon Society of California will en deavor to make the largest and most memorable in exposition history, and all the orating has been done to the delight of the assembled multitudes, Governor Withycombe and the chosen few will be carried awav to the Cali forma building and there wined and dined nntil their stomachs as well as their hearts are filled to overflowing. Philadelphia and Boston Nines Clash in World's Series Today. Philadelphia is the universal mag net today. There, on a smooth and much trodden diamond, the lines of battle in the world's championship baseball series have been drawn and the opposing forces will meet for the first battle this afternoon. The Qunk er City nine hus closed its season at, the top of the National league lad der and likewise the Boston Ameri cans are supreme in the America league. By a peculiar coincidence the same cities will. see the national series this year as last, but it was the Philadelphia Americans last year and the Nationals this year. Boston took four straight games a year ago, and thousands of fans are anxiously awaiting the possibility of duplication of the great performance. The first two games are to be played at Phil adelphia and the last) two at Boston It a htth game is necessary to decide the title it will be plaved at Plnla delphia.

Unusually good shooting by pheas ant and duck hunters was reported to Carl Shoemaker, state game warden, this week from various sections of Western Oregon invaded during the week by shooters. Pheasants seem more plentiful this year than in for mer seasons, a fact that Mr. Shoe maker attributes largely to the liber ation of 4000 pheasants this year by the state. The normal increase in these birds would be 20.000. he said, and from Polk, Marion. Linn and Benton coun ties particularly reports of manv birds and good hunting seem to beaT out tbe belief that the liberated birds have thriven amazingly. , DR.
