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 Litigation Notes. 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. GARNISHEE SUIT. 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 Jurisdiction. 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 on. 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 money." Tho case, on motion of counsel, was continued for future hearing for a time to be fixed, probably about one month. Rent for a Floating Honse. The case of David Brand against C. H. Baker, to recover $216 rent for the use of premises of the plaintiff, at the foot of Madison street, by the Pioneer boathouse, was on trial in Judge Frazer's depart 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. Will Filed. The will of V. A. Dayman, deceased, was admitted to probate in the County Court yesterday. The estate comprises ,roal property valued at $4000, and per sonal property appraised at $7500. The realty Is bequeathed to Mrs. Mary E. Greenman. and it consists of 80 acres of land.

His asset, in Salem real estate, office furniture, in struments, etc., amount to $1000. The final account of H. H. Newhall. ad ministrator de bonis non of the estate of H. T. Bingham, deceased, was filed, show ing $100 received from S. R. Harrington from the sale of lawbooks. It was asked that authority be granted to pay $99 75 of this sum In settlement of the preferred claim of DeLln & Holman. In the case of I Brown et aL vs. R. Jacobs et al., in the United States Court yesterday, leave was- granted defendants to withdraw the demurrers of R. and J. Jacoba and substitute therefor anrrers of ihrse defendants.

Eighteenth and Twenty-third United States Infantry, to be selected by the commanding. General of the Division of the Philippines and Eighth Army Corps, were to be relieved from their stations and returned to this country. The bat talion from the Fourteenth Infantry was assigned to Fort Wayne. Mich.; Eight eenth, at Fort Keogh, Mont.; Twenty third, at Fort -Douglas, Utah. The com panies selected are to serve as depot bat talions for their respective regiments. Officers and men unfit for active service those having less than six months to serve nnd those not Intending to re-enlist, will be transferred to these depot battalions. Enlisted men having six months or more to serve will be trans ferred to the active battalions, to "bring them up to their maximum strength prlcr to the departure of the depot battalions. This accounts for the transfer to Fort Wright, of Company M. under command of Captain Keene. and the bringing here of three battalions from the East. TURNED THEM AWAY. Trained Animal Tents Conld Xot Take Care of the Crotvd. Last night was the sixth performance at Norrls & Bowe's trained animal show, yet the crowd was so large that after stowing a part of It on. the ground, hundreds were turned away. This. too. with -a larger tent and. a greater seating capacity than last year. It pays to deal fairly with the public, to make no promises that a manager cannot keep, and to give a clean, wholesome show. Perhaps It will be well not to defer a visit until Saturday afternoon. The crowd Is again sure to be too large for the tent. JEWISH WOMEN'S COUNCIL LAST TEAR'S PROGRESS OF EDUCA TIONAL DEPARTMENTS. Banner -Tear In Membership In creaseAll the Officers Re-elected Mannal Training; Schools. In the Selllng-Hlrsch building yesterday afternoon the annual meeting of the Coun cil of Jewish Women was held. Electfcn of officers, annual reports and closing of school terms for the departments of ed ucation conducted by the Council was the work of the day. In all the reports increased membership and excellent finan cial conditions Indicated the prospsrity enjoyed by the Council the past year, and affords the strongest encouragement for the workers to continue hi what has been 'so well conducted In the past Excep tional attendance was noted In the three schools. The young children show their appreciation of the valuable Instruction afforded In these by an attendance that would credit a far more pretentious ins,! tutton. The. officers of the past year were all re-elected, their names and positions be ing: Mrs. .Alexander Bernstein, presi dent; Mrs. A. Newman, vlce-pres. dent; Mrs. S. M. Blumauer, secretary; Mrs. M. Flelschner, treasurer; Mrs. I Samuel, auditor. The directors elected for three years were: Mrs. B. Selling, Mrs. Charles Kohn, Mrs. O. Blnswanger and Ml-ss C. Harris.

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 tion and the public Inspection. The sew ing and household schools will both close for the Summr the latter par,t of this monin. eacn wiin an ouung or picnic lor j the children attending, which Is looked for- j ward to with great pleasure by all. It Is ' the purpose of the Council to continue I the manual training school throughout l-the Summer season. TOO MUCH IMPORTUNING. ilVevrly Arrived Germans Scared by Hotel Runners. , A little German barber, with wife and six small children, on their way from New Tork City to Hubbard. Or., missed i the connecting train In Portland yesterday i afternoon, and struck out up town to hunt lodgings. Several runners from cheap hotels vied with each other In attempts to obtain their patronage, but the head of the family had decftul to leok about the city for a room asa obtain a meal for his folks at some Testaurant. The runners would not 'bear to ithls, and crowded around the bewildered people, following them for seven blocks "up Sixth street, their 'bussed and a big crowd of spectators accompanying. "Don't go with him; he's no good," "Mine's lha best house In town, ' yelled the runners. And the little ch.Idren began to cry from fright, the husband carrying a 2-year-old and the wife a baby, while four others were loaded down with bundles. At the corner of Burnslde the strangers got away, and the runners gave it up as a bad Job. Paterfamilias, ho v; ever, had retained one of the hotel cards, and on reaching Washington street asked about the house. He was assured that the place I was all right, and that he would be treated well if he went there, and so he hunted the hotel iinv "I'tupss nnv of J theni would have been all r.'ght," he said. afterward, "but they, were so persistent that I got afraid of them all." The fam ily have friends at 'Hubbard, and will locate there. ONE OF THE BEST. Last NIrrht's Concert of the Sym phony Orchestra. The Marquam Theater was filled last night to the doors by the largest and most critical audience of the year, to hear the Symphony concert in the rendition of Beethoven's second syjnphony, and Paul TVessinger as soloist of the evening.

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 inspiring. 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. - , HELD UP OT PUBLIC. 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- Fusion or Citizens." Populists.
