Saloon Fights D ry Ukase.

Hillsboro, Ore.—District At­
torney Tongue, as special coun­
sel, Saturday filed a suit for T.
A. McCourt, a Cornelius saloon
man, against the City of Cor­
nelius, asking the court to enjoin
Mayor Sholes from proclaiming
the election results making Cor­
nelius a dry town. The com­
plaint alleges that the City Re­
corder did not print and distrib­
ute the pamphlets of necessary
size and in the necessary type as
required by ordinance, and furth­
er alleges that the Mayor did not
approve of the ordinance as re­
quired by charter. Cornelius has
two saloons and for years there
has been a constant warfare be­
tween the “ wets” and the
“ drys.” The election last Mon
day week resulted in a “dry”
victory by a majority of nine
votes.
Unsettled condition of the
weather the past five weeks has
necessitated the cancelling of the
motorcycle races which were
scheduled to take place on the
local track Saturday and Sunday.
Up until Friday every indication
pointed to ideal days for the
meet, but the rain started about
Saturday noon and kept up at in­
tervals until Sunday evening,
making the track too slippery for
the motocycles to race with safe­
ty. Manager Harry now con­

city some time in June if the
dates can be arranged without
conflicting with other booking.
