First Pino Is Imposed for
City Ordinance.
At a hearing before City Recorder
Hill on Monday A. M. Lara was
fined $5. for breaking section 17 of
ordinance 13, which forbids the
lighting of n bonfire within too
feet of a building. The complaint,
sworn out by Policeman Chapman,
showed the fire to have been lit In
the rear ol Lam's store on August
16, nftcr Mr. Lara hud been warned
by the officer.
The offender was let off with the
minimum fine inasmuch as this
was the first offense under the
ordinance prosecuted and because
his action cleat ly resulted from for-
Setfulness. Imprisonment and a
ne of $300 or less may be Imposed.

court within 30 days.
For the present it is arranged that the enterprise shall be conducted
by a committee representing all interest. J. II. Farnham, manager of
theuig contracting concern of J. G. White & Co , New York, J. G
Addison, representing the Ohio bondholders, and Jeosc Stearns, repre
senting the Portland creditors, will probably constitute this committee,
though no formal appointment has yet been made. Receiver Red field
will probably resume his former position as engineer of the company iu
the field. No local manager has yet been selected, and many other de
tails have not yet been settled. Hut it is definitely announced that the
career of the old company is ended, the water is squeezed out of the
concern and a new organization will carry the big project forward to
