A Clii'i kcri'il Career Account of Ills
( rooki-d Transactions.
Some time last fall the ICntchi'Iiisk
mentioned Itev. W, A, Willison's de
parture for llm Fast leaving his family
Institute and his creditors In the lurch.
As he was formerly located In Oregon
City In charge of the M. K. church, tlm
following account taken from the Ore
goniaii, will prove interesting reading
to many here. It says :
"Itev. W. A. Willison, the erring
'reshyterian-Methodint inlninler, whose
iiiestioiiable dealing in real estate and
hcartlesn desertion of his daughters,
created a good deal of a sensution in
Portland last HcplemU-r, was arrested
in Joplin, Mo. on June 20, and is now
hack in this cilv.
While Willison's sudden departure
from Portland caused a sensation at the
time, the full story bus never been told. !
Lust September he was a Presbyterian
minister at Piedmont. Before that he
hail posed as a Methodist minister in
Or.'gon City, and a a Baptist minister
in other parts of the state. When tie
came Ui Portland, he built a house at
iVditiont, in which he and his three
daughters, whose ages ranged from 17
to HI years, lived comfortably. He
preached occasionally in Albina and
Woodstock and also opened tip a real
estate olllce, in which all his crooked
transactions were performed under cover
of the ministry.
One morning the town became too
tropical for him and he remained home
for several days, under the pretense ol
having broken his leg. Callers at the
house were informed that hi conditron
was too critical to iermlt an interview, j
One day he was missed from his home,
and as days passed without his putting
in an appearance, an Investigation was
made bv his creditors and it was dcvtl'
oed that he had fled from the city. Be
fore leaving he had presented his eldu.it
daughter with a deed to his home and
A day or two later, a man with a niort
gane for I'.'iKX) on the cottage, and ;r.
other with a hill of sale of the furniture,
apeured, but as the young ladies were
destitute and one was seriously ill with
consumption, the claimant's left them
in charge of the house. For days the
young women were without the means
of support. In the midst of their predic
ament, an attache of a street-car line
proposed to the youngest of the three
ami waa accepted, and Ins earning
went to support the two others. Finally
llm condition ol toe sick one became so
critical that she was removed to a hospi
tal, where she died soon after. The
others are still in the city.
During all the misery of his family,
Willison was enjoying Chicago with a
Mrs. Cora Lambert, with whom he
eloK-d Iron) Portland. He cut quite a
figure in Chicago. There he met Carl
Young, formerly a music teacher in this
city, who, ignorant of his villany, intro
duced him to the ministry of the White
City. Willison preached in several
of the most prominent Presbyterian
churches there and assisted the pastors
of other churches to conduct their ser
vice. He was registered as a Presby
terian minister of good standing, without
a charge, and this alone enabled him to
accomplish his ends so far as borrowing
money was concerned. Being without
a charge, several ministers readily
loaned him from $5 to 1 150, and Rev. T.
D. Wallace, of 205 Warren avenue. Chi
cago, loaned him several hundred dol
lars. His easy manner and scholarly
speech, made him a prime favorite,
and he was in clover until a Tliiel de
tective began making inquiries for him
when he departed from Chicago as sud
denly as he left Portland.
From Chicago, Willison went to New
York, and thence through the Southern,
states. Detectives were constantly on
his trail, and at Atlanta, Ga., were but
a few hours behind him. At Atlanta,
lie gave the olllcers the slip for the time
being. But another clue was found.
and on June 17, he waa located in Jop
lin. To prevent a possible case of mis
taken identity, a Thiol detective was
sent down from Portland, and recognis
ing Willison, arrested him, and imme
diately started with him to this city, but
waa tied up in the railway blockade.
The total sum of money which Willi
son obtained in Portland by fraudulent
transactions will not fall short of $7000.
He forged the name of J. Robinson,
prosperous farmor living on the South
ern Pacific line, to notes aggregating
J'-'OOO or :I000 and negotiated them at a
local bank. From one RawlinBon, a
poor car-cleaner, employod at the Union
Pacific, be got $1500, all the man had
saved from his earnings of years. To
the following named persons he gave
bonds for deeds to land in Piedmont, to
which he had no title, and obtained
notes for the sums mentioned : William
Studubakor of Castle Rock, $3110; W. L.
Woodstock, Wash., $163; Carl Seifert,
Castle Rock, $165; Lucinda Gibson,
Portland, $400 ; Frank Studobaker, Cas
tle Rock, $330; Cornelius Burns, Castle
Rock, $320; F. L. Gum, Castle Rock,
$165 ; Johathan Humphrey, Oregon City,
$520 ; Henry C. Sehroodor, Portland, $1(X),
Freelin Stoudbuker, Castle Rock, $160.
These notes were deposited by Willi
son in several banks as security for loans
which he obtained. Many installment
payments have since been made on the
notes by the victimized parties.

Few who passed along the old Tualatin
road to (he Field's l-ridgo in days gone
by when majestic trees and decaying
stumps covered the ground realized that
they were passing over the site of a fu
ture city where in place of the monarch
of the forest beautiful ami arti-tic cot
tages should stand provided with all
the modern comforts usual in the best
regulated cities. Yet such is destined to
bo the condition of that spot in the near
future. Already the cottages are begin
ning to dot the ground which bus been
cleared ol every obstructing log
stump, leaving the ground fitted
for the planting of garden or lawn. Be
fore llm piazzas of the cottages erected
here will be tpread out a panorama of

favored spots where the foot of man but
Nature baa done everything for this
site that she could be exacted to do
and now upon every side the hand ol
man ia seen busily employed doing the
rest, and when iu a few weeks or months
at the most the artificial arrangements
have been completed and made fixtures
of the town there will no more choice
place to reside in or atout the city.
These impioveinenU include water
works, electric lighting, electric cars,
sewers and sidewalks. The water fur
the place is to come from a series of fine
springs flowing strong enough to supply
a city of 10,000 inhabitants. It
fairly boils from the ground in its haste to
reach the surface and as it sparkles in
the flitting sunlight that breaks through
the pleasant grove surrounding the
springs it makes ones month water just
to view Its transparent depths. As to its
taste 7 Well cooler and sweeter water
it would be hard to find go where you
will. It is to be pumped up to the
hill where many cottages are now being
built on lota as fine as one could wish
within a few blocks of the electric line.
Lights, water in the houses and rides
to and from town are to be furnished
those living in Willamette Falls at ex
tremely low rates and that togethei with
the beautilul location accounts Jor the
rush which is being made to locate and
build there even in these dull times.
The best thing for any one to do is
to take the electrio car at the west end
of the suspension bridge and after en
joying the fine vista and the refreshing
rido of ten minutes duration 8end an
hour looking over ibis delightful place.
