deputy sheriff, who was accused of
having stolen a «100 bill while assist

arrest several months ago, in the
Tremont diet Act, was cleared of the
charge late last week when the Mult
nomah county grand jury returned a
not true bill in Sloan’s ease.
It will be remembered that the ac
cused deputy was in the police sta
tion at Second and Oak, when a raid

home of a suspected bootlegger. The
visitor offered to take the officers to
the scene in hie automobile, and late*
entered the house with the Portland
police. During the course of the af
fair the unwilling host missed «100
and upon a search of all the officers
the bill was found on the floor near
where the deputy was standing. It
was advanced in his defense that the
bill was placed there by some other
member of the party to throw the
blame upon the visitor.
