SALKM, Or. Feb. 17. Tho prbhlbl
tlon bill passed the senate Tuesday by
a vote of 29 to 1, being adopted sub
stantially as it camo from the bouso.
A disputed clause limiting to fixed
amount tho ulcohollc beverages that
may bo purchased outside of Oregon
by a family, regardless of tho number
of adult members in tho family was
retained. Senator Dnn Kellaher cast
tho only negative voto.
Tho bill, which regulates tho use
of ulcohol and alcoholic drinks, was
passod In conformity with the consti
tutional amendment adopted at tho
last general election. It prohibits
the sale or manufacture of Intoxicants
within tho state, although limited
quantities of alcoholic beverages may
bo shipped In. The sale of pure alco
hol Ib regulated.
Immediately after tho senate
passed the bill, tho liouso concurred
In tho seimto's amendments. Hepro-
LOSES DIVORCE CASE
In n decree, handed down In tho
circuit court this morning by Judge
F. M. Calkins, Graham Hoffman Is
granted a full and complete divorce
frotn his wife. Florence Hoffman,
and given tho eustody of tin two chil
dren, ago four and sl cars,
In the finding Mrs. Hoffman Is re
buked by the court, one passage read
ing, "How any normal woman can um
pect the court to give her tho custody
of two small children, to tako out of
tho Jurisdiction of tho court to San
Francisco In the faco of admissions
she tins made on the witness stand Is
The call of the big city Is upon Mrs.
Hoffman for In another paragraph the
court says, "It also appears from the
evidence that she Is (Unsatisfied with
her lot In life, that she yearns for city
life, nud Is arbitrary and unreason
able." The allegations of Mrs. Hoffman
that her husband wns cruel, and re
fused her medical attention, the court
holds have not been sustained. The
third allegation that "ho did not love
her, and wns sullen and morose."
the court holds, may have been tho
result of her own conduct.
The allegation of tho husband "that
tho wlfo was Intoxicated In the office
of n Medford business man," and
that sho wrote an endearing letter to
one Clifton O'Drlen," arc sustained.
Tho divorco suit was of particular
Interest to Medford people, owing to
a number of local people being di
rectly and Indirectly Involved as wit
nesses. Mr. Hoffman Is a traveling
man. The couple separated onco be
fore, nnd re-marrlcd.
Tho city council at Its regular meet
ing Tuesday night turned down tho
request for the expenditure of $7o a
month for a pollco matron, as asked
by tho W. C. T. U. and Greator Med
ford club, upon tho plea that It was
"too heavy n burden upon tho tax
pa) ers." Those who voted against
tho measuro compromised, by offer
ing to put It up to the people at a spe
cial election. It was also argued that
Medford was too small for a police
matron. It would have been her
duty to care for women arrested, and
to adviso young girls.
Mrs. T. A. Howell made a plea for
tho appointment of a pollco matron,
holding that one girl saved from way
wardness warranted tho "burden" on
the taxpayers. Chief ot Pollco Hltt
son said that there wero plenty ot
theories as to tho causes of wlldness
among young girls, but that parental
Indifference was tho main cuubc.
Tho city pnrk was held to bo a meet
ing and trystlng placo for men and
girls. Councilman Mcdynskl opposing
tho appolntmont of a pollco matron
said "Medford was painted blacker
than she was," nnd that tho expense
would not bo Justified by the results
Colonel Sargent and Mr. Maun fav
ored a police matron.
PHIPPS CASE TO
Tho suit of W. K. Phlpps against
tho city for tho non-collection of as
sessments of scwor district 13, which
embraces the district adjacent to
North Hivcrsldo avenue, will bo ap
pealed to the stipromo court. Tills
decision was reached at tho meeting
of tho city council Tuesday night.
Tho suit has been a thorn in tho side
of threo previous councils, and will
bo tho same in tho present ono. In
tho meantlmo tho assessments are
hold up, and the interest accumulat
ing. No action was taken by tho coun
cil on tho lighting proposition of tho
Koguo Itlver Public Sorvlco corpora
tion of Gold Hill to furnish power to
the city upon n wholcsalo basis, un
til the suit of tho California-Oregon
Power company against tho city in

FIRMS NOW TABOOED
SALKM, Ore., Feb. 17. A bill ere
ntlng n revenue of flvo per cent tax
on trading stnmp firms, and stores
and corporations using them, passed
tho house Tuesda) and two hours
later passed the senate unnnlmoiisly.
Tho Oregon lletail Merchants associa
tion now in annual session in Port
land passed resolutions favoring such
nn att and today when tho senate
parsed tho bill, Thomas Drown, tho
author, wired the president of the or
ganization to the efft'et and he rentl It
to tho association. It Is held that
tho Drown bill, which was substituted
for another, will not prove unconsti
tutional because Its provisions come
under the taxing power of tho state
whllo tho other would have been un
der the police nower. On this phase
of tho question much tlobate cen
tered. The measure now awaits the
slgnnturo ot tho governor.
