HILL CRIME SUSPECT
TAKEN TO PORTLAND
STRANGE PRISONER STILL RE
FUSES TO TALK ANOTHER
CLUE PROBED.
Sheriff Mass on Monday took the
prisoner held here aa a suspect In the
slaying of William Hill, hla wife and
her two little children near Arden-
wald Station Friday morning, to Port
land for further examination. Al
though questioned virtually all day
the man did not utter a word, and the
Portland authorities declare that he
is one of the strangest prisoners they
have ever examined. It is thought
that the sheriff will return with the
prisoner today.
Deputy Sheriff Miles went to Mil
waukle yesterday to question a man
who worka on a farm there concern
ing a stranger who had acted peculiar
ly In the neighborhood the day before
the crime waa committed. While at
work in the field the farmhand ob
served the man running toward him.
The stranger waa greatly excited, and
gesticulated wildly. The farmhand,
fearing that the man might do hltn
harm selxed an ax and prepared to
defend himself. The fellow, however,
did not atop, merely uttering aa he
passed, "I am hungry; I haven't had
anything to eat all day." He dis
appeared In a clump of bushes. The
description given of the man answers
that of the suspect held here, and the
farmhand will be brought to tbla city
to see the prisoner when the latter
Is returned rom Portland.
COURT SETS ASIDE
KLTZf 1ILLER VERDICT
EVIDENCE NOT SUFFICIENT ON
WHICH TO AWARD
DAMAGES.
Judge Campbell In the Circuit Court
has set aside the verdict for $500
awarded by a Jury in the case of W.
H. RHIs against A. J. Klttmlller. Ellis
sued for $2,500 damages, alleging ma
licious prosecution. Kltxmlller had
Ellis arrested In July. 1910, on a
charge of stealing pcAta. alleging that
the posts were made from timber tak
en from the right of way of a pro
posed county road through land of
the Sol I wood Milling Company, the,
road having been ordered opened by
the court. The milling company
claimed the posts and Ell's hauled
them away, although , he knew that
Klttmlller alleged they belonged to
him. ' He declared that the County
Court had given him the timber from
which the posts were made to clear
the road. The criminal charge against
Ellis was dismissed, and he had Kltt
mlller arrested on a charge of assault
and battery, tbla charge also being
dismissed.
Ellis then, through Attorneys John
nitchburn and W. H. Hanson, of Port
land, commenced action for $2,500
damages for alleged false arrest
When the case waa called for trial
In the Circuit Court In April the de
rendant'a attorneye, George C. Brow
nell and William M. Stone, refused
to Introduce any evidence or make
any defense on the ground that the
plaintiff failed to Introduce evidence
sufficient to warrant a verdict against
the deendant. The Jury, however,
awarded a verdict for $500. Kits
miller, through hla attorneys, Messrs.
Brownell and Stone, made a motion
that the verdict be set aside, which
was done by the court.

Failure of four Instructor In the
Oregon City schools to file their
signed contracts within the time speci
fied In tbelr notices of election caused
the Board of Directors at a regular
meeting Monday night to declare the
positlona for which they were elected
vacant. Notices were sent out June
5, requesting the teachers to file their
contracts within five dava from the
date of the notice, or the Board w m'.J J
consider the positions vacant Their
neglect In not returning the contracts
Is taken aa an Indication Uiat they
do not care to accept the positions
tendered. The four teachers, and the
positions to which they were elected,
are:
Mlas Esther Johnson, aaslntant prin
cipal high school, salary $1000 per
annum.
Miss Jennie Lilly, Instructor iu
mathematics high school, salary $7$
per month.
Mlsa Louise Brace, Instructor li
languages, high school, salary $75 per
month.
Mlsa Ida Mae Smith. Instructor In
domestic science and art, salary $75
per month.
The only vacancy filled so far is
that of instructor In domestic science
and art. Miss Lulu M. Porter has been
chosen to fill thla position. She la a
graduate ot me nign scnooi at Lin
coln, Kan., took a scientific course
at the Kansas Christian College and
a full four-year course - tn domestic
science and art at the Kansaa State
Agricultural College. She has had atx
years' teaching experience, and for
the last two yeara has been assistant
principal at the Coqullle, Or., high

ber of desirable applicants from which
to choose. An additional high school
.teacher may also be elected to take
care of the commercial course, which

ed Instructor of the manual training
department He baa taught mechan
ical drawing four yeara and manual
training two years. Mr. Forbes Is 32
years of age and has a wife and two
children. He came to Portland from
Scotland about a month ago. Good
manual training teachers are very
scarce and the directors feel them
selves fortunate In securing an In
structor with ,the scholarship and at
tainments of Mr. Forbes. Arrange
ments will probably be made with the
directors of the Willamette school,
whereby Mr. Forbes will devote one
day each week to that town, giving
four daya work In Oregon City. He
will receive $100 per month, and
Willamette will pay Ita share of his
salary tn relation to the time given
to that district. '

ed $155 to be used to defray expenses
of incorporating the town. The money
will be used to pay for blueprints of

of Incorporating Is to have a central
power to control the town, which now
has a population of more than 300

movement from those who haVe de
feated incorporation In the past. In
