T. Bagley admits that he has been retained to as. sist the district attorney in cases arising out of the sale of intoxi cating liquors to minors.

When asked for a statement of what had been done up to the present time, Mr. Bagley replied that he was not at liberty to say any thing, especially in the absence of District Attorney Hedges and Deputy V all. Officers of the Oregon Electric Railway were before the county court Tuesday on business con nected with the right-of-way for the electric line to Hillsboro and Forest Grove. R. L. Donald. chief engineer of the operating department made the statement to the court that the line would be extended to Hillsboro as fast as money and labor can construct it as soon as the weather settles so that work can be commenced.

Several young ladies came out from Port land the day before New Years to siend the holiday with a school girl friend here and have a jolly time, and to make things livelier and more enjoyable en listed the services of the "big brother" of the Hillsboro girl, who suggested the watching of the old year out and the new one in, which was unanimously agreed to. Now. the father of the Hills boro girl likes rest and quiet and the ringing of bells and the fir ing of guns is very annoying to him at an hour when sleep is in order. This the party was well aware of, so they put up a job on the old man and during the even ing of the 31st brought into the house about a dozen gotxl. healty loud-tongued cow bells and horns enough to go around. The alarm clock was et for 11:45 and the young ladies hiked off to bed, just bubbling over with glee. But sad to relate, the "alarm' clock failed to "go off" and the girls slept peacefully until broad daylight and all through the greatest din of church bells and steam whistles ever sounueu in this citv at midnight. The "old man" is wearing that Year morning smile yet of rtiti. New Elmer Johnson, alias Willis, was run down by Portland detec tives and captured last luesday on the farm of James Lee, six miles west of Gaston, where Johnson was working as a farm hand. The crime with which he is charged was committed about a year ago, when E. L. Maxwell, deputy city engineer of Portland was held up by two men and rob bed at the muzzle of a revolver, near the Southern Pacific tracks, the amount secured being $125. One of these men, giving his name as George Frazier, was cap tured, convicted and given an in determinate sentence, making a confession implicating Johnson, who had disappeared. A short time ago it was learned that he was working for Leth who is a relative. Johnson first asserted that he had been in British wat ers for the past year fishing, but afterward admitted that he was in Portland when Maxwell was robbed and was given some of the money, but denies taking a hand in the hold-up. He says he is 18 years old, but looks much older, standing six feet in Ihight and strongly built. The city council met in regular session last Tuesday evening and in addition to allowing the usual grist of claims, passed three or dinances, one accepting land deeded to the city in west Hills boro, along the P. R. & N. right of way; one limiting the number of saloons to four, and another permitting the saloons to remain open until 12 o'clock at night and open at 5 each morning. The old ordinance required saloons to close at 10 o clock. Attorney H. 1. liagley was directed to pre pare an assessment ordinance covering the street improvements on t irst, iiase Line, and 1 hint streets and the recorder was or dered to give notice that the same would be submitted for pas sage at the February meeting. The council also discussed the advisability of substituting saw dust for wood, as fuel, and the matter was referred to the water and light committee for investi gation. The lighting system is to be improved by installing a new and larger dynamo, and the water and light committee con sisting of E. C. Schulmerich, J. W. Connell and H. R. Emmott. went to Portland Wednesday, ac companied by Mayor John Den nis and Superintendent Ringle to investigate the cost of a new ma chine. An effort will be made to trade the old machines as part payment. CircWl court. Following U the disposition cases in the circuit turt up tQ the hour oi io press ftf v.t V.

Lizzie Phillips and her sonMitchel. who are Indians hailing from Quebec, came to town on the evpninir train and took up their abode at the iualatin hote .

In their wanderings they came uiwn the Mays residence where the boy told his mother to seek shelter on the porch from the rain while he continued his search.

In the meantime the lov return ed and the two were turned over to Marshal Atkinson and hxlged in jail, and later delivered to the sheriff. It was at first thought to be a case of burglary but upon investigation the stories of the victims were verified. Thev are going about the country peddling beaded work of their own manu facture and have headquarters in Portland. They have a letter from the auditor of the city of Portland and other documents to show that a daughter is attend ing a reputable college in Penn sylvania. They were released from custody as the officials were satisfied their predicament was the result of fear. Vital Statistics, Dr. W. D.
