matter Is presented In a fair and lm
The mayor. In a very adroit man
ner, conveys the Impression that the
members of the city council did In a
private or secret way that which
they had not the courage to do in an
official way, when their action would
be on record. This, we believe, Is
unfair. The mayor's statement that
Councilman Bohannon moved, In open
council, not to settle thla suit out of
court, that the council voted unani
mously In favor of the motion, and
that after being Interviewed by At
torey Carson, Councilman Bohannon
moved In council meeting to settle
the case In accordance with the offer
Of Attorney Carson, and that the
council refused to do so, Is not borne
out by the records. It is true that
Attorney Carson met with a majority
of the members of the council one or
more times when the council was not
In session In an endeavor to get this
case amicably settled and that the
question of the settlement of the case
was talked over In an Informal way
In council meeting but no vote was
taken upon the question until a vote
was taken upon the motion of Coun
cilman Mix to settle the case as stat
ed by the mayor. In explanation of
the action of the council In not vot
ing to settle the case as provided by
motion of Councilman Mix, we will
Btate that the mayor stated to the
council before a vote was taken that,
any action the council should take
would not affect the case, as the city
of Independence was not a party to
the suit and could not settle the
case, and he stated In most positive
terms that the case would not be set
tled outside the court room. ' When
the vote upon the motion of Council
man Mix was taken, two councilmen
were declared voting for the motion
and two voting apainst the motion,
the mayor remarked, "Here is where
I shine," and voted no and then
declared the motion lost. So the may
or really decided the question "nim
hlmaelf and if he went ahead and
aubpoenled witnesses on this case he
did so without any Instructions or
authority from the council.
Now Just a word further In regard
to this case. The mayor states that
when this case came up for trial in
Judge Burnett's court, that a motion
v. him for non-suit, after the Krebs
Hop Co. had presented their evidence,
was sustained by Judge Burner, arm
on this ruling the case was taken on
appeal to the supreme court of Ore
gon. The mayor, however, failed to
etate that this motion was taken and
sustained on a technicality.
The attorney for the Krebs Hop
Co. in his pleadings alleged that R.
J. Taylor and I. W. Dickinson had
taken and detained the team of the
plaintiff, whereas the evidence show-
ion Maulta In m OWn family and

WHERE WORLD'S WORKS OF ART WILL BE HOUSED 'AT A.-Y.-P.

tures will be the work of the old masters, including rare art exhibits
from the Corcoran in Washington, the Art Museum in New York, the
Chicago Art Institute and from a large number of private galleries of
wealthy men In the United States and Europe, who have for years made
the collection of famous old paintings their hobby. Paris and London
have made large loans.
At the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition the selection of pictures will
be limited to the works of inan who have been recognized in the great
art competitions in all parts of the world. Many American artists will
be represented in the display in the Fine Arts Palace at the Exposition
and arrangements lu;ve already been made for the shipping of these valu

G. L. Berg, art director of the Exposition, has visited all of the lead
ing galleries of the United States, collecting the pictures suitable for dis
play at Seattle, and writes that the pictures already loaned will constitute
