Und Two Principal Points In
tho Cmtc Scttlcil After
Ycur of Ai-RUinr-nt.
(From Friday's Dally.)
Itcmovlng all doubt cast by quo
warranto proceedings broughl In tho
name of Ous E. Stadlg, of Lower
Ilrldge, as to the right of Dcschntet
county to transact business as a mu
nicipal corporation, Circuit Judgo T.
K. J. Duffy lato yesterday afternoon
handed down an opinion favoring,
this county in the two remaining dis
puted points In the case. Judgo Duf
fy's opinion recognizes tho legisla
tive act creating Deschutes county
and holds that a number of tho ques
tions raised by N. O. Wallace, ot
Prlncvllle, counsel for tbo antl-dlvis-lonlsts,
could have been adjudicated
In tho previous case of McKay versus
County Clerk Brown.
Caso Pending Year.
The caso has been pending almost
a year, suit being filed on December
20, 191C, only olght days after judg
ment had been secured on thu McKay-Drown
case. An earlier decision,
was prevented by a series ot motions
and' demurrers, which delayed actios.
Al tho time tho matter first camo up
Ihrco attorneys, Wlllard Wlrtz, M. II.
Elliott and Mr. Wallace, represented
thn Crook county sldo and H. II. Do
Armond ond Vernon A. Forbes, Des
chutes. The latter part of tho fight
has beon kept up principally by Mr.
Forbes, Mr. Do Armond and Mr. Wal
lace, the two other Prinevlllo meu
having withdrawn from the caso.
Previous Decision Upheld.
Final arguments on tho two prin
cipal points left undecided wero
heard last week in Prinevlllo by
Judgo Duffy, counsel maintaining
that tho legislative act passed by the
legislature at Its last session validat
ing Deschutes county bars and estops
any ono from questioning tho valid
ity of Its organization. Tho other
point was that tho case ot McKay
vorsus Drown, on which judgment
was rendered Decombor 12, 191C,
bars and estops the plaintiffs from,
maintaining any action at tills time,
tho claim being mado that all ques
tions In this case could havo been
litigated in tho previous ono.
