It was when Assistant Prosecutor Mo Conough asked for a postponement un til January 16 of the cases against the six prisoners charged with inciting the riot, that the first of these accusations came to the surface. "Your honor," said William Thorn, one of the six men, "I want to be tried immediately. The city prison here isn't a safe place for me. Last night the police locked me in a solitary cell, end after midnight four policemen came in and beat me with clubs. If you will exclude women, I will show you my lroi.es and soars." Police Judge Crist replied that he had no jurisdiction over such matters, but suggested that Thorn might complain to Chief of Police Whito. He granted a continuance until rioxt Monday, dis regarding MeConough's representation that Policeman W. 0.

Another charge was made by Morgan Fremlin, a sugar foreman, from Ham ilton City, who, though he did not even see the riot, according to his own ac count, declared he was attacked by a policeman in tho vicinity of tho place where it occurred, and unquestionably was so badly beaten that he was in a serious condition at St. Luke's hospital today. "With both jaws broken and all his front teeth knocked out, Frcmlin had trouble in telling his story.

At tno corner or r uin anu Afiuainn wtrnntii WA pnCOliniered this T10 ! licenian. He probably mistook me for one of the men who had taken part in the riot." The beating followed, Fremlin said, . before ho had time to explain that he bad not even beon a bystander at tho fight, and did not so much as" know that thero was trouble anywhere neBr bini.

WEST WILL NOT SEN MILITIATO TO AID (WS MAYOR Gets Wire From Both Sheriff a nd Mayor in Regard to Situa tion Believes Sheriff Is Capable of Handling Situation Which Arises Over Refusal of Conucil to Promptly Confirm Appointments of MayorOffer to Appoint Three Special Agents Mayor Wants to Close Saloons of City. At last there has been found a good reason for the existance of the saloon. Mayor Anderson of The Dalles has made the wonderful discovery and evidently wants to try it out. The Dalles has had a row on between the mayor and the city council for sorao time, It starting over a disagreement about the appoint ment o'f a chief of police. The mayor named a man and the council refused to confirm him. After much wrangling a compromise was agreed on and the third man appointed. Things ran along not altogether smoothly, for a while, but still they moved without open war fare. Trouble started again Thursday night when the chief resigned. The mayor at once named his first choice for the place and the council promptly refused to confirm the appointment. In fact, it weut so far as to name a policeman who is practically the chief. This roused the Ire of the mayor. He glimpsod everything a bright carmine and he scented bloodshed in the breez es waftod down from BiggB, that usual ly have nothing more heart-rending in them than sand. Then he issued his ultimatum, "If you do not confirm my appoint mnt I will proclaim something or othor and close all the saloons." So it Is easily seen that at last a reason for tho oxistanco of tho saloons Is found. Thoy are a club in the hands of the mayor to make tho council do his bid ding, Thero is no claim that the sa loons are operating in violation of law or doing anything else unlawful, since. thoy are projiorly licensed, but there you are. Whilo tho castorn horizon was still Incaiadino to tho angry mayor he sent the following diHpatch to Gov omor West: "Tim Hallos, Oregon, Jan. 8, 1911. "Governor Wost, ''Hiilem, Oregon.
