gait to Sst Ail<l« Judgment I'nder Fore-
Closure on Vslualile Property.
An equity suit was commenced before Judge
Langley yesterday by A. E. McEachern against
William Brackott and several o.hor defendants
to have a judgment in foreclosure proceedings
against the plaintiff set aside.
The property in question is situated in Pon
tius addition. and the plaintiff claims title by a
dsed of William Brackett executed to him ou
Jfovsnber 22,1883, for in cash and a note for
|3W. which was secured by a purchase money
mortgage upon the property for that amount.
The p.aiutiff further claims that Brackett agreed
With him not to enforce pavm nt withoutYoa
•ofable notice to the plaintiff, and that, relying
spon this agreement, ho left the city on Decern
b*r I, ISKt, after leaving his address with Brack
et'- He says that iu 18-St one Brantigan Bought
to foreclose a mortgage on thla property,
bat, although the plaintiff was a defendant
In that action, no process was served
upon him. no notice was received of the pend
ency of the action until December 20. IRsS, and
•i soon as he did know of it he brought this
action. Yet iu this foreclosure suit a judgment
for f." •'> y> was rendered by default against him,
snd the land was sold by the sheriff for t!7",i.90.
Tue plaintiff hays that a pa;>er purporting to be
a general demurrer of the defendants wait filed
by Burke <& Rasin, but this was without the
knowledge and consent of tho plaintiff, nor
were Burke it Ruin bis attorneys. In conclu
shti ttie plaintiff alleges that the defendants,
J O. Brautigan and wife, John Leury, O. C,
Pliinuey. William Brackett and George Kin
ncar knew that plaintiff was not served with
notice of tho suit, although they knew the
plaintiff"s place of abode.
The delendants contend that no loss has been
proved to have been suffered ■by the plaintiff
Above tho value of the mortgagi, that there fs
no reason to set n.-ide the judicial stile, and that
the plaintiff ha> been guilty of negligence in
notbringing his action sooner.

A Backslider Goes to Jail, Loaded With
Heretical Liquor an<l Poetry.
W. E. Morreli was arrested Monday evening
by Officer L. B. Pierce for drunkenness. Mor
reli was found sitting on the curbstone at the
corner of -Seventh and W'eller streets in a thor
oughly helpless condition. He was given ac
commodation for the night in the city jail.
Nothing was found upou hiui but a silver
quarter, a bit of poetry snd a certificate of grad
uation from a Keeley cure institute.
Morrell is a lumberman and ha* been about
this city for over two years. During this time
he has imbibed more or less freely, and this is
by no mean* the first time that Jaiier Noble has
seen him under tho influence of liquor before
he undertook the cure, but freely admits that
this is the'flrst time that he has been required
to carry him in on his back—no much for the
Keeiey institute. This is rather a hard hit on
the cure in this locality as the certificate is a
new one. than a month ago ha came
into the police statlou aud boasted that he had
entirely lost his craving for liquor, that he did
not care for it any more, and, in fac:, that the
smell of It gauged him and made him feel ill.
There is fctlli a loop hole of escape for Keeley,
for it is jun possible that it was merely sta till
ing liquor tnat produced last night's effect. It
is out justice to the police to add that tney re
gard this theory as visionary.
lis this as t may it is certain that his thoughts
were o svated to a certain degree, for the follow

Kellogg: Produces the Record of
His Naturalization.
The Court Record* of Pierce County
Show He Wa* a Canadian and
Not Eligible for Uffica.
Gardner Kellogg yesterd*y produced docu
mentary evidence in supjort of the charges
wh.ch have been made as to the Ineligibility of
A. P.. Hunt for hi* present position as chief of
the fire department. Ho said on the subject in
an interview with A POST-INTELLIGENCER re
porter last night:
I have document* in my possession to prove
the stand I have t'sken in this matter. The first
of the<e was a statement such ns was obtained
from all the men on appointment. It sets fortu
birth, Hge, birthplace and citizenship, with in
structions for communicating wiih friends in
case of aieatmity or death in tho line of duty.
It reads thus:
"A :ert liemis Hunt; captain; born Grand
Rapid*, Mich.. April 12, 1861: American citiaen;
resided in state fifteen month*, ia city same;
residence in department; began duty October
26,188' J. ITI cas-j of uiiabi.ity notify John Mc-
Far.ane, Mandamin, via sarn'a. Out."
The other is a transcript from the records of
Pierce county, certified by tne e'erk of thesu
l*nor court, setting fortu that Albert 15. Hunr,
a native ol Canada, had been natural:! d on Oc
tober 24, «14#2, by Judge Beverly. The paper
readß«exactly as follows:
"In the superior court of Pierce county, state
of Wa*tii!fgton. In the matter of the Applica
tion of Albert B. Hunt, an alien, to be onie a
citiien of the United .-tatea iu ojien court thi*
24t1 day of October, 1892," etc., etc.
Hunt declared in his statement to the court
thst be been a resident of tiie United States
three years prior to his majority and that he
had continuously resided iu the United Stau*
up to the pre.ent t.in*. Even this latter state
ment is not true. Hunt has only lived in the
Uuited State* since ISB9. Ho came from Petro
lia, Ontario. The fact that he gave his friend s
address a* Maiidamiu, Outario, wtiuld seem to
prove his alieu birth. Steps are being taken to
secure all documents ant documentary evi
dence from Canada and elsewhere to prove tne
falsity of his statements.
There is a fact in this connection worth men
tioning, though it reflects no discredit, as far as
I know, on thj chief, and that is that his appli
cation ior uatura.ix itiou is not signed by two
witnesses, as required by law.
City Will Employ All Idle Men at Wood
The wood yard to be conducted by the city
water department will be opened to day or to
morrow. Ita establishment first proposed
by the Bureau of Associates Cliarities as a
means of taking care of ail able-bodied men
who are seeking ai l and who are at the san.e
time w-liinz to work. Superintendent VViUon,
of the water department, at the suggestion of
the board of public works, took nun and tools
out yesterday to school section No. 16, near the
end of the Kaituer avenge ear liue,4>ut did not
flud wood euout'h to justify him in putting
them to work. 110 will make other arrange
ments today or tomorrow and the work.ofg.v
ing employment to able and willing men who
need it will soon be fairly under way. The city
will pay SO cents per cord for cutting, and, as a
fair average in good wool is two to three cords
per day, it will be seen that the men who take
this work ought to mate fair wages. The city
will furnish tools and pay iu checks every Sat
urday night.
Indian Pete In Hard Luck.
"Indian I'ete" was arrested on Saturday night
for being druuk and was shut up in the city
jaiL While there he took occasiou to beat John
Nelson, one of his fellow inmates, the remit
being a broken rib and several unassorted
bruises for the latter. His case came up yester
day, the aid of an interpreter being necessary.
Peter's gutturals, wlieu translated, conveyed
that he was entirely ignorant of the case, had
no recollection of it whatever. Judgo Glasgow
fined him f,», however, and Peter will stay in
jail for the statutory period.
Kitty Buckley Pays for lievenge.

Caldwell yesterday to the charge of assault and

such a hall; and ~
WHEKEAS, There is hardly in thr United

ne*s importance of Seattle which does not pos
sess a creditable municipal building: and

Is It Worth
the Chance?
If you are sincere in ei-ccur
cging honest manufacturers in
giving you pure preparations
instesd of worthless on?s, at
fair instead of seemingly
cheap price, is it worts the
cn?.nce to purchase the
and one adulterated extracts
on the market instead of Dr.
Price's Delicious Flavoring
Extracts of Lemon, Orange,
Vanilla, etc., that impar; the
natural flavor of the fruity and
are endorsed for their parity,
strength and economy?
A trial of Dr. Price's Deli|ious
Flavoring Extracts will prove
a great movement toitirds
good eating, active digestion
and happy homes.
