JURY UNABLE TO AGREE IN INDIAN BOOTLEGGING CASE
The jury in the case against Tom Bartel accused of selling liquor to Reynold Mose, a Klamath Indian, after an all night session came into federal court Friday morning and reported to Judge Wolverton that it had been impossible to reach an agreement and further that the members were hopelessly disagreed. Judge Wolverton then dismissed the jury. The case will be retried at a later date, probably in Portland.
The case was given to the jury about 5 o'clock Thursday afternoon and the disagreement was reported into court at 9 o'clock Friday morning.
After a new jury had been impaneled Friday forenoon by United States Marshal Montague, the trial of the case against Buck Anderson and A. W. Saunders was placed on trial. They are charged with bringing liquor onto the Klamath reservation on January 13 last. Ex-Judge Webster, formerly circuit judge of Klamath county, is defending the accused.
LOCAL SCHOOLS' COMMENCEMENT INVITATIONS OUT
The Medford Printing company has just furnished handsome commencement invitations to the Medford high school, the Phoenix high school and the Laurelhurst school.
The order of the senior class of the Medford high school was probably the largest even given by a school in southern Oregon, amounting to 1,600 engraved invitations.
The Phoenix school, while not so large an order, has sent out what many claim is the prettiest commencement card ever issued in the valley.
The Laurelhurst school, while not so elaborate in design as the larger schools, is sending out invitations to the commencement exercises that would be a credit to any of the larger schools.
The Phoenix school is also getting out its customary high school annual which will be off the press the latter part of May, and will make a book around 75 pages printed on heavy plate paper, giving the pictures of the class, faculty, basket ball team, and other interesting photographic reproductions.
