Another chapter in the troubles of the R.W. Kinder family was written Tuesday afternoon when Judge F.M. Calkins of the circuit court issued a temporary order giving Mrs. Kinder control of the home place on Griffin Creek and restraining Kinder from interfering with or being on the place without the permission of Mrs. Kinder. It has been arranged that he will leave before the sun goes down tonight. The final decision in the divorce proceedings were taken under advisement.
The temporary order provides that Mark and Marion, the two youngest boys, who have always sided with their father, be allowed to remain on the place as long as they behave themselves. The care of Alta, the youngest child, is given to the mother, but it is left optional with the two boys. Owen can do as he sees fit.
The court in issuing his order lectured both sides and said he hoped they would be able to reach some agreement and provide a home for themselves and children without jangling.
The trouble introduced was similar to that told to Prosecutor Kelly, when the trouble broke out ten days ago. The only new evidence was that one of the younger brothers testified that if he had been present when his father was jabbed in the neck with a pitchfork he would have shot Owen.
The "Clue of the Broken Finger" was the headliner that drew the big crowd to the Star theater last evening. It certainly is a thriller and is intensely interesting from the start. Some very good scenes are shown, especially the jump from the bridge to the top of a passing steamboat, and another exciting situation is the chase over the top of a train going at full speed and in which the pursuers are cleverly outwitted. The other numbers on the program are all good and opening today is the De Coursey Bros. in gladiatorial posing, a high class vaudeville attraction coming here from the People's theatre in Portland.
Tomorrow the management offers "Chelsea 7750" with Henry E. Dixey in the title role. This is the second of the "Famous Player" productions and is claimed to be even better than Mary Pickford in "Caprice."
