Quarterly Report of Recorder's Court
Shows Urge Percentage of Cases Are
on Charges of Intoxication.
The city council at its Monday night
meeting received several petition
from citizen desiring a postponement
of the time limit for constructing side
walks. The first read by the recorder
was that of C. II. Stranahan, who
owns property on fine street, and H.
r. Moses, a Montello avenue owner.
A motion was made by councilman
Krosius to the effect that the petition
be granted, provided that the contract
ors laying the sidewalk, except where
liermits had been granted, were not
able to complete the work up to line of
the prorty owners desiring the delay.
A iietitioti signed by h. O. Hall, con
tractor, and W. S. Nichol for the Ash
bury Methodist church, asked that a
delay be granted in the construction of
the sidewalk in front of the church on
State Street. This, however, was not
granted bv the council, since it was
deemed that the improvement was
much needed and that the abutting
owners had had sufficient time for com
pletion of the work. It was further
stated that if an extension were gran
ted, the work would be delayed until
the cold weather prevented Its being
done this year.
Mating that they were only able to
carry on their work during certain
seasons of the year, a unmher of citi
zens operating teams and wagons in
the city asked that the licences he
made payable quarterly instead of an
nually, the present rate or licences is
$20 per annum for a single team and
$10 for each of three additional teams.
The petition was refused.
An application for a permit to con
struct the basement of the Apple Fair
Association building at the corner of
Cascade avenue and Second street wa.-.
submitted by Albert Sutton, urchitect
for the association. The application
was accompanied by plans and specifi
cations and was granted. Ihu base
ment of the new structure was begun
Monday by the W. . A hired Co. and
Fredericks & Arnold. A large crew of
men will hasten it to completion. The
structure will be covered with a fire
proof roof.
A communication was submitted by
A. W. Onthank, who stated that a
great number of citizens in the upper
city where the population was thicker
than in portions ot the territory cov
ered by the recently constructed
sewers, felt that they should have pro
visions for sewers. 1 he communica
tion was referred to the wer commit
tee. An appeal from the mayor and citi
zens ot mack Kiver fans, wis., tor
aid was referred to the finance com
mittee. The Wisconsin town was
devastated by a flood October (i.
S. W, Stark notified the council that
the attachment proceedings against
the Seaton Construction Co. had begun
through error, owing to a misinterpre
tation on his part of a telephonic mes
sage, l he A verm Machinery i.e., lie
stated, desired to garnishee property
of .1. .J. Seaton instead of the Seaton
Construction Co.
The street commissioner was in
structed by the cuoiicil to hasten repair
work on the Lust Side grade, where
recent slides have put the roadway in
bad condition.
City Engineer I'. M. Morse notified
the council that both a portion of the
state road between Thirteenth and
Fourteenth streets and the extension
of Sherman avenue into the I'aradise
addition were known as Adams street.
This, he said, mignt lead to confusion
in future street improvement. The
matter was referred'to City Attorney
Derby, who was asked for an opinion
as to the legality of the name given
the portion of Sherman avenue in the
I'aradise addition.
The Fire and Water committee sub
mitted a written report, stating that,
since the requirements asked by Morris
Bros, had all been met in the passage
of the ordinance providing for an as
signment of the contracct witn lllen &
Co. to them, unli-co they complete the
purchase of the bonds this week, they

City Recorder i. U. Langille sub
mitted a monthly reort as to the
city's finances and the quarterly report
for the recorder's court. The cases
coming before Kecorder Langille were
for the most part for drur.kenes.
The report concluded as follows:
"Out of the total of 2) cases heard '
twenty two were upon the charge of j
drunkeness. While in no case have the j
defendants admitted where they se-i
cured the liquor in this city, although
it had been so secured in alout half i
the cases, there has been sufficient
evidence to show that it is the practice;
of some of the physicians here to issue'
prescriptions for liquor which have'
been filled in quantities as large as two'
quarts in one case, and at least eight i
ounces in all. And in every case that
has come before nie there has been no !
apparent excuse for the use of liquor
at all, the defendants not pleading ill
ness as the excuse for securing, or
showing JtOV siirns fif illniwu littler tlnm I
the effects of the liquor itself."
It was suggested by the council that
the fines for drunkeness be heavily in.
A shooting affray in which John
Rayan and Frank Robertson sustained
serious wounds, when li roil upon by
Marshal Kobt. 'I. Lewis occurred here
about twelve o'ekock Saturday night,
at the Fashion Stables. The two vic
tims were resisting arrest and had
attacked the marshal and nieht officer
Henry Hickox, who was accompanying
The trouble arose over the arrest of
Ryan early in the evening by the night
watchman, Ryan was on Oak street
in an intoxicated condition, according
to the report of the officers. Hecause
of his disorderly conduct he was taken
in tow by Hickox. The man is very
strong and the night oflicer was unable
to take him to the city prison single
handed. He called on Robertson and
Lew Adam, two companions of the in
toxicated man who were standing near
by, to assist him. They instead de
manded that the drunk man be turned
over to them, and when it was refused
they look Hickox's club from him and
aided Ryan in escaping.
The night officer immediately tele
phoned to Marshal Lewis, who had re
tired for the night at his lodging house
on Cascade avenue, lie fore he arrived.
however, the three men proceeded
down Oak street, to the Fashion livery
barn., holering the harness room, it
is reported that they issued a challenge
to the authorities to come and take
them. They had a bottle of whiskey
with them and were drinking heavily.
As soon as the officers arm ed on the
scene, they proceeded to the door of
the harness room and Lewis ordered
the men to surrender. Instead, how
ever, they began a concerted attack on
the officers. Hickox was felled by
Adams, "and theother two men, Rob
ertson and Ryan made for the marshal.
Ryan wrested his club from hi it) and
secured a strangle hold around his
throat. With his free hand the officer
secured his gnu and warning Robert
son to desist or he would shoot, fired
when he continued to. approach. 'J lie
slight flesh wound received in the
shoulder sobered Robertson. In the
general melee that followed Kvan sus
tained a wound in the stomach. Four
shots were tired.
The shooting did not occur inside the
barn. When the men attacked the
officers, the impetus of their rush
forced them out of the building into
the street.
Ray Shimmerliorn, an employe of
the livery barn who was in ithe base
ment of the barn stabling a team of
horses for the night, heard the phots
and rushing to Hie main floor saw the
officers with the wounded 'men. He
hitched a team to a wagonett-.' and
they were taken to the Cottage hos
pital, where their wound:) were at
tended to.

Hiunemr. Ryan arrived m town last
spring. On the night of his arrival.
he went to the city prison and asked to
he locked up for the night, stating that
he was just recovering from a long jag
and feared that he might commit
violence if left on the streets. He has
frequently been an offender and has
given the officers trouble because of
resisting arrest. He has made repeat
ed threat' agaii st the marshal's life.
Ryan was operated on at the Cottage
Htspital Sunday night. It was found
that the bullet hud turn ten hides in
his small intestine. In one place be
eae of the closeness of the1 perfora
tions, a portiou of the intestine, 111
inches long had to be removed. The
man was living yesterday afternoon.
However, it is doubtful as to whether
or not he will recover. Such a wound
as that sustained by him is very dan
gerous. He may live several days and
then succumb to blood poison.

A number of experts, who have in
spected the ihW machinery of the
storage department of the Hixl River
Apple Growers' Lrion say that no cold
storage plant on the coast has a liner
equipment. The new 50 horse pmver
storage machine:, u hich was installed
by Hell. Wildman & Co., of Poniard,
runs smuttily and without a bobble. It
is driven by a 50 horse power l'elton
water wheel. The water is furnished
by Joseph A. Wilson, who operates a
power system in tht. city. Water
driven machinery is much more easily
controlled than that driven by any
other power, especially so when com
pared with electrically driven ma
chinery. The I'nion plant is in charge
of I). C. Kautz.
The energy furnished the apple
growers organization by Mr. Wilson
now amounts to t5 horse power, the
capacity of the old machine being 15
horsepower. I he union now ices its
own cars, its lee storage tanks are
always full of crystal blocks. Its daily
ice capacity is 20 tons.
I he height of tne busy season is now
on at the Unon. The storage rooms
arj piled high with boxes of packed
nun and carload alter carload is being
sent out daily.
1 he Hood River Apple Growers'
I'nion, because of its cooperation and
strict methods of packing and grading
has bad much to do with the success of
the apple industry in the valley. As
the valley has forged ahead, the or
ganization has increased the scope of
its operations.
The tii st co-operative organization in
the valley was the Fruit Growers'
Union, organized in lKH.'i. It had
offices and a small warehouse north of
the railroad tracks on a spot very
nearly opposite the new passenger
stat ion.
The box apple cron in the northwest
will be decidedly shorter than the fig
ures of estimates given out before the
picking season began. The eastern
apple crop was somewhat damaged
during the past few weeks because of
storms in the different sections. Still
because of the large local product,
extra fancy western apples are finding
but a slight demand in the eastern
nun Lets, .
Several gratifying sales were; made
by the Apple Growers' Union within
the past week. A number of carloads
of extra fancy tipples were sold direct
to German buyers, the sales having
been made entirely on the reputation
of the Union's honesty in pack and
business dealings. The sales were
made by cables direct from the dealers
in Hamhcrg. This is the first time
such procedure has taken place in the
history of the Union, Hit Kuropean
dialers having always secured their
apples on consignment.
"The eastern market," says C. H.
Sprout, manager of the Union, is still
full of the local product and there is
but a sleight demand for western extra
fancy goods at prices satisfactory fo
the Union. However, ve have sold
car load lots of extra fancy Spitzen
bergs, Newtowns and Ortleys to points
in Texns, liritish Columbia ai d Cal
ifornia and to Huston and Chicago.
Carload lots of fancy product have
been shipped to Texas, Tennessee,
Nebraska, Iowa and California.
" I he Union has shipped twelve car
loads of pears this season, consisting
of Anjous, Kart lulls, Winter Nellies
and Hi lit re Faster varieties. All ship
ments have been sidd t. o. b. Hood
River and ha'e brought satisfactory
prices. This is the greatest amount of
peats thal has eer been shipped out
of the Valley in any one season hereto
fore. "The Union has been greatly embar-'
ra sited in filling some of its oi tiers, es
pecially in Jonathans, because of the
shrinkage of the pack as compared
with the earlier estimates of the
season's crop. We have been obliged
to cancel a number of orders on tins
account. There is also a great short
age m the pack of Haldwins and liltick
Twigs, and we will not be able to fill
all of our orders for these varieties,
the sales having been limde early in
the season on the growers' estimates.
"The great bulk of the Union's out
put, except for extra fancy Spitzeii
bergs, Newtowns and Ortleys, will be
sold west of the Rocky Mountains, be
cause of the fact that the heavy crop
of earlier local product prevents us
from securing satisfactory prices for
the average varieties of apples."
Waller Johnson, en aged man, who
came to the west in the earlj days by
way of ('ape Horn and who came to
this comnninity'and settled after hav
ing married an Indian girl, met death
Sunday night, when struck by an O-W.
R. & N. freight train about a mile and
a half east of the city. The old man
is survived by two sons, Charles and
Henry Johnson. He has been making
his with the former for the past
live years. Last Saturday the son left
home to camp on the banks of the Co
lumbia and tish. lie desired te bring
his father with him. Ilowevur, the' old
man could not be persuaded to leave
home. After leaving a supply of wood
and food convenient all of the rest of
the family left for the river.
It is supposed that the old fellow
wandered away from the house in the
absence of the family and because of
hi almost total blindness became lost.
He was seen Sunday afternoon near
