Salem, Ore., June 25. (Special to
Democrat.) The city of Albany won
a decided victory in the case of R. C.
Churchill against the city, the city
recorder and the chief of police.
Churchill is proprietor of a restau
rant and. banquet room, and also has
a room in which he sells soft drinks
and cigars. The city some time ago
parsed an ordinance making it unlaw
ful for proprietors of this class of es
tablishment, or pool dialls, to keep
open later than midnight. The case
was a test case brought to enjoin the
city from enforcing the law. It was
contended that the law was discrimi
natory, unconstitutional and was class
legislation.
The circuit court ruled in favor of
a demurrer and dismissed the case,
from which Churchill appealed. The
circuit court also ordered the case
dismissed sustaining the demurrer on
the grounds of error.

The opinion of the supreme court
says: "The circuit court ignored the
precepts of the statute suspending exe
cution until further hearing when the
proper security is given. The record
discloses that, the liberty of a citizen

EVERYTHING IS HUMMING
Five Carloads Are Already in

Are Employed.
The Corvallis cannery is whooping
things up these days. Already five
cars of canned products are in the
warehouse and a force of seventy-five
to eighty-five is working full tilt. The
nay roll last week totaled almost $500,
and will pass that henceforth. Man
ager Tinker has an order for 40 tons
of canned strawberries about five or
six carloads, and is endeavoring to
fill the order. Products from the
south as far as Creswell and north
as far as Amity are coming in and he
thinks he may make it. Strawberries,
gooseberries and rhubarb are occu
pying the force just now, and it is a
real sight to see the "busybodies" at
the cannery. Corvallis Gazette-Times
