THE MOCKING OBEGOKIAN, "l'HUESDAT, MAY ' 17, 1900.
IN THE SEVERAL COURTS
JUDGE MARQUAM TESTIFIES IX
THE FORECLOSURE SUIT.
Garnishee Salt of Interest to Those
Dealing "With Corporations
P. A- Marquam testified yesterday In
the suit against him by the United States
Mortgage Company to foreclose the mort
gage on the Marquam block. In relation
to his dealings with the Title Guarantee
& Trust Company, the trustee of the
Marquam denied that he accept
ed as conclusive and final the statements
rendered to him by the company, and
said he frequently complained of the
compounding of interest, which he al
leges was done every three months. He
thought the rents they charged were not
high enough, and his recollection was
that when he managed the property prior
to 1895, the rentals .amounted to $2500 per
month. He denied representing to the
company that the rentals aggregated over
$50,000 per year.
The Title Guarantee & Trust Company
show that when they took charge only
about 75 rooms in the Marquam Building
were occupied, and the company succeed
ed in increasing the number to 1C5.
Judge Marquam told of a suit brought
against him by the Northern Counties
Investment Company in 1894 to foreclose
a mortgage, and said although he had
lived in Portland for more than a- third
of a century and owned property at that
time supposed to be worth over $1,000,000.
he never heard of the suit until a friend
mentioned It to him on the street. He had
been away for a while and the summons
was published In a paper which no one
ever saw. The property, he said, was
afterwards sold for the mortgage.
This is another instance of publishing
a summons in an obscure paper.
Calvin Hellig testified concerning the
settlement of a claim against the North
west Theatrical Association under the
first lease by the payment of $2900 and
the turning over of property in the the
ater, scenery, etc, worth $2300. He also
said that during the dull times the earn
ings were paid to the Title Guarantee &
Trust Company on the rent account.
Question of Interest to Those Doing
Business With Railroads.
The suit of R. E. Larcom vs. James W.
Held, to recover $233, was submitted In
Judge Scars' court yesterday. The plain
tiff avers that he advanced money to the
defendant as his agent to pay off certain
claims against plaintiff held by persons
claiming to be tenants on his farm. In
Nez Perecs County, Idaho, and that Reld
did not so apply the money: also that
Held collected a judgment of $115 from
one Hallett, and has refused to turn it
over. The plaintiff garnisheed the Clear
water Valley Railroad Company, which
in answer denies owing Reld $500. A
question involved is whether a garnish
ment against this company is good.
TV. TV. Cotton, attorney for the de
fendant, argued that the action should
not have been brought here. The Clear
water Valley Railroad Company, he said,
owes Reld something, but in Idaho, where
the corporation docs business
The parties, he said, all lived in Idaho.
There the debt, if any, to Larcom was
contracted, and payable. There the rail
road company owed Reld some money;
he did not know how much; the amount
had never been liquidated. The plaintiff
alleged that the railroad company owed
Reld $500. which sum It seeks to gar
nishee. The company, through its attor
ney, says It does not owe Reld this sum,
nor any definite sum; it owes film at the
most not to exceed $250. And because the
amount of this debt to Reld is not ascer
tained, "liquidated," or known, and be
cause the debt Is owed on both sides. In
Idaho, and all the parties live there, the
lawyer argued that a court here should
not entertain the action; that it has no
t The attorney proceeded to show the in
justice of bringing suit in Oregon under
these circumstances and serving sum
mons by publication of summons in some
obscure sheet that nobody reads. Coun
sel asserted that the O. R. & N. Co.,
which is assumed to be sponsor for the
Idaho branch, that is the garnishee, can
be served anywhere along Its line In Ore
gon, Washington or Idaho, and in Lew
iston where the parties reside, and it was
not proper to file the action and garnish
ment here. He said Reid or any non
resident was entitled to be informed of
proceedings against him, and have a
chance to make a defense before his prop
erty can bo taken. Judge Sears will con
sider the question and pass upon it later
Tnklnsr Every Cent n Man Has.
Judge George yesterday declined to or
der TV. E. Hurd to take $15 which he had
in his pocket and apply it in part satis-,
faction of a judgment obtained by S. W.
Staver against Hurd and J. Worlck for
$16i, in the Portland Justice Court, De
comber 19, 1SS9. Hurd was before the
court on proceedings supplemental to
execution, it being alleged that he had
property liable to execution In the form
of large mining stock option claims.
When placed upon the witness stand and
questioned by G. C. Moser, attorney for
tho plalntlf. Hurd denied having any
thing available, except $15 on his person,
which he said represented earnings. On
further examination of the case it was
developed that Worlck has property, but
it was stated that Worlck was only a
surety for Hurd. For the defense, J. J.
Fitzgerald argued that as the $15 was the
result of earnings, it was exempt under
the statute, and Mr. Moser took a con
trary view of the meaning of the statute.
Judge George said while technically the
statute might not cover the case, the
court was loth to take every cent a man
has. There was a question of its power
If he refused, under penalty of contempt,
to take off his person the small sum of
$15. "Every man," the court remarked,
"Is supposed to have some property upon
his person clothes, a knife, and some
Tho case, on motion of counsel, was
continued for future hearing for a time
to be fixed, probably about one month.

The case of David Brand against C. H.
Baker, to recover $216 rent for the use of

ment yesterday, and will be concluded
today. Brand demands rent for 27 months
at the rate of $S per month. Baker de
fends on the pica that the boathouse Is
moored to piles out In the stream, be
yond the water-front line of plaintiffs
land, and Brand is not entitled to re
cover. The boathouse is reached by a
stair leading from the Madison-Street
bridge. Numerous perplexing legal ques
tions were argued by Woodard & Palmer,
counrol for defendant, and W. T. Mulr,
for the plaintiff. The case was once be
fore In court, and was nonsuited.

work, and the attention to the general
purposes of the Council, made the last
year a banner year In every respect The
sewing school, held In tho New Council
building, had an average attendance of
100 little girls during the year. These
were taught to handle the needle and per-
form other useful work In connection with i
the making and repairing of clothes, be
sides fancy work. The household school
had an average attendance of about 10)
during the year. In this Institution tho
little girls were taught to do all kinds
of home-making work a line of instruc
tion everybody admits Is sadly lacking in
the community. The enterprise of the
Council In devoting attention to such mat
ters as these, which are generally neglect
ed In the rush for more pretentious mat
ters, is highly commendable, and Is re
ceiving the hearty support it deserves.
The third school conducted by It Is the
manual training school for boys, which
had an average attendance during the
year of approximately 40, and a total mem
bership of 78. This new venture of the
Council has proved highly satisfactory,
and promises excellent results. To this
school the Council invites especial atten

The name of the great poet of mu3lc Is
becoming more familiar as the seasons of
music pass, but to the great majority
the second symphony Is a stranger. The
opening number, "Adagio Molto and Alle
gro con Brio," made friends, and before
its close the vast audience was ready to
receive It with open arms. It is a work
specially constructed for violins and light
er tone. The theme Is carried through so
daintily on and up higher and higher,
soaring heavenward and loth to return
until recalled to earth again by horn and
'cello. Again on eagle wlcg it rises. The
closing number, the "Allegro Molto," was
given with a dash and Are that was truly
The Symphony Orchestra was a surprise
to many in the audience, and while tb
lighter work of the programme was more
pleasing, the hope Is freely expressed that
the "season just closed will be the begin
ning of earnest work with the orchestra
on such works as the Beethoven Sym
phony No. 2.
Handel's "Largo" was listened to with
almost religious attention. Melancholy
and sorrowful Is the theme, and almost
sacred. For an encsre the orchestra
played In a dainty manner the Bocherini
minuet. The faces of the musicians and
audience lit up at the first note of "The
Beautiful Blue Danube." Perhaps the rec
ollection of the charity ball had something
to do with It. It was well received and
enjoyed. After an intermission of 10 min
utes, the "Lorelei" of Nesvadba was ren
dered In a very pleating manner. The
theme Is so homelike, recalling earlier
day., and, paraphrased, has been bright
ened. The audience recelvcl Mr. Wessinger In
tho "Prize Song" from "Tannhauser"
with a round of applause. He sang It
with good taste and Jjsed good Judgment
by singing In English. He was in good
voice and a happy mood, his rendition be
ing marked by artistic finish and Inter
pretation. The resonant, sympathetic
quality of Mr. Wesslnger"s voice was
particularly marked In his encore, which
was another difficult Wagnerian solo,
"Oh. Thou Bright Star from "Tann
bauser." Upon being recalled, he repeat
ed this beautiful solo in a different ar
rangement. Director O. I. -Brown won new laurels
last night in this the most pretentious
concert of the series. At all times were
he and his orchestra In full accord, his
masterly directing receiving due recogni
tion In the applause, which was during
the entire evening noted for its spon
taneity. The f'Don Juan" of Mozart was. a fitting
clos, as the .audience carried away the
bright and airy music not scon to be for
gotten. - ,

Remarkable Clrcnmstances Attend
ing Latest East Side Robbery.
As particulars of tho East Side hold
up occurring night before last become
known, it develops to be one of those
peculiar affairs that are very hard to ex
plain satisfactorily. The victim, C. A.
Williams, was led by the two highwaymen
from almost the presence of several per
sons to a quiet corner, where the high
waymen went through his pockets at
leisure. What seems most remarkable
and strange is that in conducting him to
the spot where they were intending to
rifle his pockets, more than one person
was met on -the sidewalk. What kind of
a hypnotic spell the fpotpads use Is un
known, but it would seem that something
more than the ordinary would have to be
employed to coerce a healthy young man
under ordinary circumstances.
Williams was on the south side of Burn
side, about half way between Union and
Grand avenues, oppodte the Burkhard
building, which Is filled with roomers. A
little over 100 feet from him was Pete
Zimmerman's saloon, in which there were
several nersons, and on the opposite cor-
