E. H. Fish, until recently manger of Brown's confectionery, soda fountain and dance establishment was arrested this morning on a warrant sworn out by Edwin J. White of the White Velvet Ice Cream company, charging him with uttering a fraudulent check. In Justice of the Peace Taylor's court Mr. Fish was arraigned and his hearing was set for 10 a. m. Monday.

The affidavit for arrest charges that Mr. Fish on June 22 last with intent to defraud gave a check for $11.34 on the Medford National bank "knowing that he had not sufficient funds in the bank, or credit with the bank, for payment of the check."


  • Mayor C. E. Gates received a letter from his mother-in-law, Mrs. Margaret Fernsley of Freemont, Neb., who is well known in Medford, stating that recently she was passing a store in Freemont and saw cherries on display in the front marked "Rogue River Cherries." She inquired the price and was astounded to learn that it was three cherries for five cents.
