THE TRIAL OF TOMTH
!THE UEXTTEVAVrS FATE IX HjUTDS
"WIrneKe Tell of the Conditional
Tender of Battery Command to
The military fate of Lieutenant Ed Un
rath of battery A. O. X- G., charged by
his superior officer. Citaln Greenleaf.
with conduct prejudicial to good order and
military discipline, is now in the hands
of the board of officers, before whom he
was tried last night.
Lieutenant Unrath is charged with en
deavoring to oust Captain Greenleaf from
command of the battery, that Captain
L. C. Farrar, of G company, might suc
ceed him; but he denies the serious
charge made against him and feels con
fident that he will not be found guilty of
any act of Insubordination. Under the
orders assembling: the court-martial, the
trial was to have taken place on Feb
ruary 15, but an adjournment was had
until last night- The detail of the court
martfal consists of the following brigade
Colonel Beebe. of the First regiment,
president; Lieutenant-Colonel George F.
2CoConneU, aide-de-camp; Major E. Ever
ett and ilajor C. U. Gantenbein, of the
First: Captain H. E. Mitchell, and Cap
tain L. C- Jones, of General Compson's
staff, and Captain J. C. Itutenic, of com
pany A, First regiment. The state's case
vu presented by First Lieutenant Charles
E. ReWia, of the Second, acting as judge
advocate. The trial took place at the Armory of
the First regiment last night, in the room
occupied by the board of officers, and all
the officers of the court with the excep
tion of Lieutenant-Colonel SlcConnell
Immediately after the assembling cf the
board and calling the roll, Judge-Advocate
Itoblin read general order No. 2,
announcing the resignation .of Colonel
Beebe as commander of the First regi
ment, its acceptance, and his appoint
ment as brigadier-general of the Oregon
National Guard. The appointment of
Willis S. Duniway as assistant adjutant
general, with the rank of major, was
After these preliminaries had been dis
posed of. Lieutenant Unralh was requested
to stand up, when the charges and the
three specifications setting forth his al
leged acts of insubordination in detail
were read, to each of which he entered
a. plea of not guilty.
Captain L. C. Farrar, commander of G
company, was the ilrst witness summoned
by the state. He stated that on the night
of December 27, 1894, while at the Armory,
Jie was requested by Lieutenant Unrath
to allow him a few minutes' conversa
tion. He and the lieutenant and three
members of the battery went into the
battery headquarters, and from there to
the company room, when Unrath asked
him how he would like to be an artillery
officer. One of the others then said:
"That ain't what we want; we want
you to be captain of the battery."
Farrar was then told that the men were
dissatisfied with Greenleaf because he did
not get the city horses for drill with the
guns, which heicould do if he wanted to.
Nothing was said In his presence con
cerning the standing of Greenleaf with the
W. J. Bradford, a member of battery
A, was the next witness. He stated he
had hoard the conversation between Un
rath and Farrar. He could not remember
all that was said, but finally Farrar was
asked if he would take the captaincy of
the battery if Greenleaf resigned and he
was-elected. There had been some kick
ing against the lack of drill, and a peti
tion was to be got up asking Greenleaf to
"Was Farrar told there was a strong
sentiment in the battery against Green
leaf?" "Yes, sir.
"Who told him so?" t
"I did, for one."
"Did Unrath reprimand you or dissent
from the remark?"
By Lieutenant Unrath While this con
versation was going on. did I not turn the
subject, and lead it to our gun drill at
the Exposition building?
By Colonel Beebe How many members
were there who were dissatisfied with
"1 think about K or 30. It had been go
ing on ever since last June."
By Captain Mitchell Dkl Unrath say
anything about Greenleaf ia your pres
ence? "Not directly."
By Colonel Beebe Did you understand
that Farrar was brought Into the battery
quarters for the purpose of talking about
"Yes. sir. Several members of the bat
tery had other officers of the First regi-
ment in view, and we wanted to get in
lirst. The matter was discussed often.
and Unrath could not help hearing it, if
he stayed among the boys."
By Lieutenant Unrath Dkl I ever, in
your presence, say I wanted Farrar for
"Yes; providing Greenleaf resigned."
"Did l'not say I wanted a good man
one who would do what Farrar had for
G company, and bring the battery to a
- "Yes, sir."
Sergeants Ingerman. Beckwlth, Bow
man and Spencer, and Private Gordon
were ateo witnesses who testified generally
that the sentiment of members of the
batter was favorable to Captain Green
leaf. Some of them knew nothing of a
petition being gotten up asking Greenleaf
to resign. There was some little dissatis
faction among some of the non-commissioned
officers on account cf not having a
school of instruction, and among two or
three of the members there was some talk
unfavorable to Greenleaf. Lieutenant
Bowman testified that at a meeting of the
members Unrath said to Greenleaf that
he had not offered the captaincy to Far
rar, bat was present when a non-commie-stoned
officer had said to Farrar that there
was a sentiment among the members
a-winst Greenleaf. and lie would like to
have him elected as captain.
With the examination of the above wit
ueaa, Ue state rested, and a short recess
was taken. On reconvening, the defense
taak j Its side.
The llrst witness for the defense was
Private Bradford, and other witnesses
were Private Fish, Private Tompkins. Sig
nal Sergeant Klwell. Captain Farrar and
Lieutenant Unrath. The evident dnft of
the defense was that Lieutenant Unrath
did not Incite his men to rebellious con
duct against Captain Greenleaf, nor act
as & participant with them, but that the
conversation with Captain Farrar by the
men was somewhat unexpected on his
part, and that hie only participation was
to be present at the time. It developed
that the Are persons present were Captain
Farrar. Privates Fish, rarrtsh and Brad
ford and Unrith. The overture to Can
tata Farrar appeared to have been made
by the iirtvate of battery A. who repre
sented that a majority of the members
wrre ready to sign a petition for Captain
Or.vrUeaf to resign. If Farrar would ac
cept the captaincy. Though Unrath was
present when the conditional tender of the
captaincy was made to Farrar. he made
no attempt to reprove the members. The
w Tibers stated that they h..d a grievance
ari.net Greenleaf for noa -discipline, and
Uaraih. at time, said the proper
T. tttod was to present their grievance to
Greenleaf through a committee.
Unrath declared during the testimony
that he made an effort to turn the con
versation from the affairs of battery A.
Captain Farrar tol! substantially the
same story as the other j Hi' was asked
"Did I not tfk ju 5.2 -wouli Lke
to take charge of the battery If Captain
"I do not remember that you said so,"
was the reply.
Lieutenant Unrath, in his testimony,
"The grievances were made known to
Captain Greenleaf. I also told him myself
that I thought that it was necessary to
have more discipline in the battery. He
said he did not see how we could have
discipline like the regular army. He had
malice in his heart toward no one. I told
him I did not see how we could have dis
cipline in the batten "with no one to
enforce it- That is all."
The taking of testimony was completed
at a late hour, and the argument began.
No decision will be announced for sev
MR. CROSBY SURPRISED.
He Did "Vot Know His Wife Was Di
vorced From Him.
C. E. Crosby, husband of Jennie Crosby,
who victimized Wesley Perry out of
several hundred dollars, has written to
Clerk Moore of the state circuit court, ex
pressing his surprise at learning that his
wife has procured a divorce from him. He
signifies his intention of taking steps to
have it set aside. The record shows that
Jennie Crosby mailed a summons to her
husband, in her divorce action, to Sydney,
Wash., where he formerly lived. Crosby
has been keeping a store at Port Orchard,
Wash. Letters from Crosby to his wife
since her arrest for robbing old man Per
ry, prove that Mrs. Crosby knew her hus
band was at Port Orchard when she ob
tained her divorce. Mrs. Crosby commit
ted perjury in making oath that she was
a resident of Oregon for one year, only
having resided here six months. A charge
of perjury is pending against her on this
account, besides the charge of robbing
Perry. Old man Perry, who wanted to
marry the woman, was her principal wit
ness at the trial of the divorce suit, and
is therefore evidently as much guilty of
the fraud practiced upon the court as Mrs.
Crosby herself. He has since said that
he advised her that a year was the time
required to gain a residence, and for her
to proceed within the law. But he was
aware she was not so doing it, and had
full cognizance of the desertion by her of
her husband, and encouraged rather than
dissuaded her from it, and with all this
assistance and knowledge aided the di
vorce. Crosby has written of his devotion to his
wife, and has proffered her assistance. He
would evidently endure all, if she would
return home to him and her children.
Crosby is also anxious about 40 acres of
land in Kitsap county. Wash., which is
in the name of Mrs. Crosby. It is under
stood Mrs. Crosby has transferred this to
one of her lawyers. Mrs. Crosby is still
in jail, as she is unable to furnish bonds.
NEW LAWS NOW IN FORCE
The Kejralars IXnve Control of the
State Medical Hoard.
Numerous orders are being sent to Sa
lem for certified copies of bills passed by
the late legislature. Everybody knows
how the bill he was interested in looked
when It was presented, but some of them
were so amended that their fathers did
not know them after they had been
squeezed through the mill.
From Dr. J. D. Fenton it is learned that
the bill regulating the practice of medi
cine was so amended as to make the ex
amining board consist of five, instead of
six members Three regulars, one homeo
path, and one eclectic and the place of
meeting of the board is to be at Portland.
In addition to the 12 physicians nomi
nated by the Medical Society of Portland
for the governor to select the three regu
lar members of the examining board
from, the executive board of the State
Medical Society endorsed the above 12, ana
added thereto five additional names as fol
lows: E. P. Geary, of Medford; J. F. Cal
breath. McMinnville; O. F. Doane, of The
Dalles; I. N. Pruett, of Pendleton, ana
W. A. Cusick, of Salem.
The old bridge commission has ordered
a copy of the new bridge bill, as the mem
bers want to know if they have been leg
islated out of office, and, if so, why and
how they were let go. Other parties have
ordered a copy of tho same bill, and wish
to find out hew the legislature can sub
mit the vehicle-toll proposition to a vote
of taxpayers. Sheriff Sears, it is under
stood, broke away from Senator McGinn
to flee to Salem and procure a certified
copy of the law reducing his emoluments.
There was some kind of a, game law pass
ed, and sportsmen as well as marketmen
are anxious to find outwhat it is, and how
it affects their interests. Lots of others
are after other bills.
THE CHARGES DOUBLED.
Lawyers Must Pay THKlicr Court
Cliarffe In Certain Instance.
The fees for filing papers in the county
and state circuit courts have been raised
100 per cent by an act of the legislature,
just approved, In numerous cases, as
In all probate proceedings hereafter,
parties will be required to pay $10 on com
mencing proceedings, such as the filing of
petitions or wills. This applies to probate
of wills and applications for letters of ad
ministration, and petitions for guardian
ships. The law also provides that a party
nllng any demurrer, answer, or motion, in
such proceedings be required to advance
?5 as fees.
In law cases the fees are governed by
the amount involved. Ten dollars must
be paid when the complaint is filed, where
the amount In controversy exceeds J500,
ami $5 where the amount is $SO0 or less.
Upon filing any answer, demurrer or mo
tion in these actions. 55 must be paid where
the amount In controversy exceeds $300,
and 5S where the amount in dispute is
56W or less.
When probate and law matters come up
for final hearing in the courts, the plaint
iff, or moving party. Is required to pay
a fee of 52. This takes the place of trial
fees, as collecrcd'heretofore.
There is some question as to what fee
will be exacted in divorce cases and equlty
cases. where no amount in controversy is
specified. A provision in the law reads
that in actions where private rights are
involved a fee of $K for filing the papers
bhall be charged. Divorce suits and equlty
proceedings may be held to be actions
where private rights are involved. The
clerk will charge 51 in this class of
cases, and if the lawyers are not satis
fled with this construction of the law,
they can appeal to the judges of the state
circuit court for a decision.

TOMME ANEW BOARD
GOV. LORD, IT IS SAID, WILL DIS
PLACE RAILROAD COMMISSION.
Bnt the Other Hold-Oven Seem to
Have, a Snre Thin;, Though.
Time Will Tell.
There Is trouble in store for the hold
over members of the board of railroad
commissioners, and individually they are
likely to think that after all their lot is
not particularly a happy one. It Is stated
on good authority that Governor Lord
proposes to appoint a new board, basing
his action on the presumption that the
recent legislature, having failed to per
form its duty and elect a new board of
railroad commissioners, it devolves upon
him to do so. Rumor also has it that ex
Senator Jeff Myers, from the forks of the
Santiam, will be the minority member of
the board to be appointed by Governor
Lord; but no intimation is given as to who
the two republicans will be.
The failure of the recent legislature
to elect certain state officers is liable to
lead to many complications. Each and
every one of the present incumbents claim
that he holds over, and this assumption
is generally supported by those who have
studied the question the singular situation
presents. At the 17th biennial session of
the legislature, held In 1S93, in a joint
convention held on February 17, the fol
lowing state officers were selected, being
the selections made by the republican
caucus on the previous night.
Railroad commissioners I. A. Macrum,
J. B. Eddy, H. B. Compson.
Fish commissioners George T. Myers,
Allan Parker, George Guisten, W. J.
Riley, Joseph Paquet.
Pilot commissioners J. A. Brown, John
Fox, B. F. Packard.
Dairy and food commissionersCharles
Game and fish warden Perry Henshaw.
State librarian J. B. Putnam.
Boatman, at Astoria E. F. Eradford.
During the same session a bill was
passed abolishing the fish commission and
creating the office of fish and game war
den, and, to make a sure shot, the repub
lican majority elected both. This election
took place February 17, while the bill
was not approved until five days later.
Governor Pennoyer held that the legisla
ture had no right to elect an officer, pro
vided for in a bill, before it had become
a law, and, in this opinion, he was sus
tained. As a result, the fish commission
ers never qualified, and Mr. Henshaw,
who had been elected as fish and game
warden, was not recognized as eligible
under the governor's construction of the
law, and H. D. McGulre was appointed in
his place, after the bill had been filed in
the office of the secretary of state.
Mr. Charles Hclman, of Clackamas
county, found himself In similar position,
as the bill creating his office was filed on
February 21, four days after his election
In the joint convention. Governor Pen
noyer appointed H. B. Luce, of Washing
ton county, to the office. He still holds
it. Regarding the right of the railroad
commissioners' to hold over. Senator Cogs
well yesterday said: "The commission
was created under the act of 18S9, which
provides that the officers shall hold foi
a term of two years, and until their suc
cessors are elected and qualified. It also
provides that in case of vacancy, by
death, resignation or otherwise, the gov
ernor shall fill the same, such appointees
to continue in office for the remainder of
"It has uniformly been held that under
the provisions permitting officers to hold
for a prescribed term, they also do so
until they successors are elected and quil
ify. Therefore, a failure to fill the posi
tions at the expiration of the term does
not create a vacancy that can be filled
by appointment The incumbent con
tinues to hold until the power upon which
the duty of election or appointment is
devolved can regularly act, and their
successors are duly elected and qualify,
"The policy of the law is to diminish,
as far as practical, executive patronage,
and in accordance therewith it has been
thought proper to confine the power of
appointment to cases -.-here vacancies
exist, in fact; that is, when no one is
authorized to perform the duties of the
office under consideration.'
Senator Cogswell is regarded as an au
thority on constitutional questions, and
during hi3 elsrht years of service as a state
senator, paid particular attention to all
matters arising in the legislature, and
the constitutionality of the measures
brought before that bedy.
Mr. H. D. McGuire, the fish and game
warden appointed by Governor Pennoyer,
of course considers thjt he is still in of
fice. The usual appropriation was made
by the last legislature, and he will be on
hand to draw his quarterly allowance
with the same promptitude as during the
past two years. Being a democrat. Mr.
McGuire thinks the failure of the legis
lature to elect his successor a piece of
good luck, as there would have been no
chance of his retention. As It is now, he
u ill continue in office, unless the governor
should appoint some one in his place, and
his executive action be sustained by the
Mr. John Fox, chairman of the board of
pilot commissioners, entertains a similar
view, and he and his associates will con
tinue to act until their successors are
elected and qualify. As, in their opinion,
nothing short of an extra session of the
legislature could bring about such a con
dition, all the pilot commissioners feel
fairly comfortable, and do not expect to
The most comfortably-situated man of
the lot is J. B. Putnam, who for years
past has held the position of state li
brarian. Had a joint convention of the
legislature been held he would doubtless
have been elected. Should the govern 3r
take it into his head that he has authority
to appoint, Mr. Putnam feels reasonably
certain that he knows who would be se
lected; so he is not worrying over the
matter. It would be a case of hold over
in any event, so far as he is concerned.

NEAR THE LEGAL LIMIT
Statement of the- Financial Condi
tion of Vancoin er.
VANCOUVER, Feb. 27. For several
months the amount of the city's bonded
and warrant indebtedness has bordered
closely upon the lawful limit of 5 per cent
of'the total valuation. The council at a
special session Monday evening prepared
a financial statement of the standing of
the city, to be reported at the regular
meeting of the council next Monday. The
statement is as follows:
Bonded indebtedness, bearing C per
cent interest 553,000
Warrant indebtedness, bearing 6 per
cent interest 2G.613
Total ". S81.C13
Available assets $ 9.000
Net Indebtedness 72.C13
"TTit. naf r.An f fhn trnluri t !fn nf assess
able property in the city amounts to about
$75,000. The report recites that as the
city's indebtedness is so close to the legal
limit, it will be necessary to curtail ex
penses whenever this can be done without
actual injury or loss, and assigns this as
an important argument in favor of leas
ing the electric light plant, and points out
that by so doing the city would realize a
saving of not less than $"00, required to
place the plant in first-class running or
der, and a further saving on the city's 50
arc lights for stores, repairs and salaries,
which, according to the estimate, would
result in an additional saving of about
sona -npr annum. An estimate of the ex
penditures and income of the city, based
upon last year's reports, and taking into
consideration the reductions of salaries,
etc., already made shows the following
It is believed by the council committee
that $15,000 of the outstanding warrants
can be easily funded, by bonding, at a
saving to the city of at least 2 per cent
Interest on that amount, and that the
warrants of the city would then be easily
worth their face. The funding of $15,000
of the floating indebtedness of the city
is therefore recommended.

A GAY MASHER IN TROUBLE
"William H. Boyd. AVho Enticed a
Yonngr Girl From Home.
"U'illiam H. Boyd is the name of a res
taurant waiter, who, had he received his
just deserts Tuesday night, would hardly
have been in condition now to further
carry on hi3 questionable practices.
Boyd poses as a lady's man, and is al
ways on the lookout to make some con
quest with susceptible young girls. On
Tuesday night he enticed a respectable
girl, 17 years of age, from her home by
deceiving the mother with a story that
he was to escort her daughter to a social
party given by a Mrs. Manning. .Shortly
after leaving the house, he tried to pre
vail upon the child to go into a saloon
with him, which, she refused. Detectives
Welch and Day happened to be passing
by, and, taking in the situation, placed
Boyd under arrest and took him to the
central police station. On account of the
respectability of the girl and her family,
no charge was entered against Boyd, so
that publicity might be avoided, but Chief
Minto gave him a lecture that he will not
forget for many a day.
This same Boyd was, some time ago,
reported to have been engaged to an esti
mable young woman in Portland, but
when his true character was revealed the
match was promptly broken off. After
this he went out to the Nehalem vallej-,
and from there wrote a letter to The Ore
gonian, giving a thrilling account of his
being lost in the forests, and said that in
