On cross examination "Dr." Madison explained the garhage dis- trict limits. Ho could not tell defi- nitely where Mr. Honeywell's -resi- lience was, but was sure that it was in the garbage limits. He said he did not demand money from Mr. Honeywell every month. "Dr." Mad- ison was asked f he had offered to .-rebate to any person part of their assessments if they should 'pay up delinquent assessments. He was not permitted to answer this question. City Clerk L. Mabel Lee was call- ed for the purpose of proving the ex- istence of the ga-rlmgc ordinance. Co'plca of the ordinance were placed in evidence over the objection of the iittorueys for the defense. Chas. W. Frye, driver of one of the .garbage wagons said that Mr. Hon- eywell lived on Magnolia street and that ho had removed garbage from .the Honeywell residence laet July but not since. Waa not positive that It was in .Inly when he made the collection. The city rested its case at this point and the attorneys for the de- fendant moved for u 11011 suit on the grounds that the complaint did not state a cause of action and that tho ordinance was not properly pleaded. Judge Hoss denied Ira Hotioywell, the defendant, was called in his own behalf.

Reynolds a local attorney and Ira Honeywell, in an effort to force them to pay the garbage tax Inaugurated by the com- mission shortly after they took of- fice a year agp, was opened in the city hall at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Judge Hoss presided at the hearing. City Attorney W. N. Beal argued the case for the city while J. H. Jahnke acted as counsel for the defendants. The- court room was .well filled Avhen the court waa called Eo order, as the case has attracted a wide In- terest in the elly. The suits wore liled against Messrs. Honeywell and Reynolds about a week ago, It being the evident intention of the commis- sion to'make an example of the two defendants for the several (others have also refused to pay the tax. The fate of the garhage tax prac- tically hangs In the balance, as the ultimate decision favor the defendants, about 700 other tax payers would no doubt refuse to make further 'payments. No-mat- ter which way Judge Hoss renders his decision this afternoon, the ease will undoubtedly he appealed to the superior court, and probably to the supreme court should the de- cision of the lower curt prove un- favorable, as the commission appears to bo As equally determined to en- force the tax as the defendants are to evade it. By agreement the case against Ira Honeywel was taken up first. Judge C. B. Reynolds was associ- ated with Attorney JJahnko in the :onuct of the defense of this case. "Dr." Theodore Madison was the first witness called by. tlid city. He admitted that he was city health.of- ficer and gavo an ou'tlino of his du- ties as such. He snld that the de- fendant had refused to pay his garbage assessment, amounting ,to date to He .'admitted' that he did not know of his own knowl- edge whether or not any garbage wit- In his argument for the defense Judge Reynolds said that he was not trying to hinder the city in its collection of garbage, but that the city should do it In a legni u-ay. He wont on lo show that the city 'offi- cials were not complying with the or- ilinances in force.. City attorney Beal closed the ar- gument for the city. Judge. Hoss decided the case In favor of tiie city and notice of an appeal to the superior court was fiiv- en. Th case against C. B. Reynolds was then taken up and was being proceeded with at the time of going to press.

The bills were urged by Senator Josiah Collins were inspired by the tragic death of Judge Robert W. 1'rignioro, of Seattle, who was killed while on a hunting trip in SkuKit county a few years ago. The first bill renuires hunters to, ascertain by observation whether or not tlie object at which they are aiming is a human being or a wild animal and provides that if a hu- man beinK is killed the offense shall be manslaughter. The second bill protects hunters in that it requires all persons hunt- Ing in timbered or brushy country to wear red coats or sweaters.

Kennedy of King introduced In the House lorday morning the first represent- ative and sena-torial reapportion- ment bill of the session, "redistrict- ing the state on a strictly consti- tutional basis. The bill was drawn by Foster at the request of a number of mem- bers of the House and was intro- dijced jointly by Kennedy, nian of the King County executive and steering committee, and Fos- ter. That the bill will have the un- ited support of the King county del- egation Is expected, as all the mem- bers have agreed to stand for consti- tutional reapportionment, for which the bill Introduce today provides. According to the provisions of this LIU the state is divided into seven- ty-one representative districts and forty-three senatorial districts. In some instances where division lines are dinicult two representatives are assigned to each district and in other cases only one representative Is al- lowed. -In no oase in King county does a representative district em- brace part of the city nnd pa-rt of the country territory.

The resolu- tion was a laudatory document and at once drew the fire of Robert Orass, of King county, who intro- dEiccd a resolution several ila-ys ago calling for the -appointment of a committee to investigate the reform- atory and the hoard of managers. At his own request Ornss had his resolution referred to the committee on commerce and manufactures, in order that an inspection could be made of certain records on file In the office of the state auditor.
