Alleging nogllgonco on the part of

against tho powor company to col

at least $105,000 worth ot lumbor
consumod by flro whon tbo Kesterson
mill at Wordonburnod on the 17th
of last September.
Tho complaint states that on the
25th of May, 1920, the Germain com
pany owned a largo quantity of lum
ber In tho yard and plant of tbo I.
E. Kestorson Lumbor company at
Ivan Spur, near Worden, about JO
miles south ot this city, and that the
lumber was insured for Its approxi

Oregon Powpr company maintained
and operated ovor and across the
plant and yards three oloctrlc wires
with a capacity of 37,000 volts, the
wiroa being strung about 40 feet
from tho ground and Immediately
over tho lumber. Being carelessly
and unsklllfully hung, so tho com
plaint says, ono or moro wires broko
and foil on the lumber, sotting fire

Ono "of tho main contentions of

that tho mill piled its lumber on the
company's land without permission
and against tbo oxprossed warning of
