Judge Leavitt says that the lost

from the police Judge, after he bad

that It was not with the parers sent
Mr. Poole makes tbe following
"That the city of Klamath Falls
collected a fine of 825 from me Is
untrue. The facts are that through
an error on the part of Oeo. Chas

Renner, tho papers in the case had
been left in Judge Lcavitt's office
and were 'lost' by Judge Lcavtlt.
When tho t.lme limit of appeal had
expired there was nothing left for
Circuit Judge Kuykcndall to do but
dismiss tho case.
"Thoreupon Mr. Itcnner paid tho
flno of- $25 to the police Judge and
pubticly stated It was to save Ceo.
Chastaln'a faco that ho did so. Mr.
Poole did not and Mr. Renner will
not permit hint to pay this fino as
It was an error on the part of his
legal partner at that tlmo that tho

"Tho city Is satisfied." said City
Attorney J. IE. Carnahnn 'todav.
"Whether defendant or attorney paid
