CASE FOR LACK OF CONVIN
LOCAL PASTOR MIXES IN AFFAIRS
Neighborhood Row In Which "Woman

the Man Making
BANDY, Oregon, Dec 27. Harlow
Douglass, the nineteen-year-old son of
Mr. E. M. Douglass, was arreted by
(leorge Ketch on a churgo of entering
his store by a key to the front dour,
which Ketch knew bad beeu lost for
six mon ii, and waa told to change
padlock. Mr. Ketch bought the store
of Mm. Douglas the sixth of Decem
ber and became Incensed because one
of Mrs. Doughus' b'roihers, Thomas
Meservu, of Portland, found two mort
gage, amounting to eleven hundred
dollar, on tho lot lo be traded. Dur
ing tho two week Ketch was rais
ing part of the money he allowed a
man of IMh place, who Is an enemy
to Mm. Mouglass, to pemuade him
that she was not dealing fairly with
him. When (he deal -was closed he
told her that hea would make trouble
for her before he' finished.
A week ago Thursday, the glass of
the back door was taken out and
Ketch reported that he had missed
handkerchief and neckties. The fol

were handkerchief missing, but bod
found no trace of bow the store waa
Harlow Douglass had evidence
which pointed to E. W. Keller, whom
ho thought was connected with the
burglary. Ketch offered Harlow five
dollar if he would catch the man,
but waa told that he considered it
worth twenty-five because It was
risky business to work on such things.
E. W. Keller and brother, also known
as "Kelly," who bad been running a
restaurant In the Douglass building,
disappeared the morning after the
second offense wa reported, taking
with them throe large grips, and a
quantity of silverware belonging to
Mr. Ketch waited until Mm. Doug
lass was gone, to carry out bis plans,
because he did not care to meet Mrs.

eluding two old silk handkerchiefs,
which nlalnly showed that they had
been laundered, were the only proof
Ketch could produce, and It was
plainly aeen that the wholo thing was
spite work on the part of enemies of
Mra. Douglass. Justice of the Peace
Jonsrud heard the matter discussed
and finally dismissed the case for
lack of evldojice.
Anyone who was acquainted with
the boy'B fnthor. will know that his
reputation was the very beat and that
he was exceedingly honest. He was
one of Eastern Multnomah county a
most prominent citizens. Mrs. Doug
lass is also very highly esteemed by
all who nndcrstand the difficulties a
lone woman hna to overcome, eso
clally one who Is making a success
In business, where otbers are fnlllng.
Rev. M. M. Rold. pastor of the
Methodist Church, considered It his
duty to assist the neighborhood In
knocking a widow, so he told Mrs.
Douglass before the arrest was made
Hint If trouble ever came up he would
have to tostlfy against her because
she was not living a sincere Christian
life. He has unjustly allowed others
to form an opinion for him of Mrs.
Douglass, because he cannot prove
ono wrong net ognlnst her.
Irene Douglnss, who is attending
tho Washington High School, had
chnrge of the program for the Chrlst-
tnns entertnlnmcnt and had promised
tho use of her piano for that night
but when she had it taken over, she
was greeted at tho door with the an
nouncement thnt he. Rev. Rold, could
not allow the church work to be hin
dered by a piano that belonged to a
girl who belonged to a woman who
had a. son that was accused of rob
bery. Only a day before he had tried
to get the promise of a piano from
Joseph Donahue, and had not been
mnn enough, after telling Mlsa Doug
lass to bring hers over, that he would
not allow It in the church. The piano
wns won by Miss Douglass Inst sum
mer In the Oregon City Enterprise
contest, but Bitrely that could not
have disabled It for church purposes.
Rev. Reld accepted other favors from
Mrs. Douglass for the evening, whtcb
could have Just as much harmed the
churcli work as tho piano. As he
stated that he would not allow Mrs.
Douglass to work In the church until
Bhe wns converted, she, her daugh
ter, nnd nnothojr, may withdraw their
membership letters or ask for church
trial. The town la very Indignant
