COMBGTOIt OF BAXIC CHECKS IS A
Police Captured Better Than. TSiey
Knew When They Arrested H.
H. W. Dvrlsht.
The capture of one of the most noted
and clever bank-check forgers In the coun
try was made by the police Saturday,
and the merchants of Portland are saved
from being extensively victimized. The
roan is a most daring and successful
operator who floods a place with his
worthless paper when once he begins, and
business men can feel relieved to know
that he Is safe under lock and key.
He came here a week ago from Califor
nia and going to the office of a printer
represented himself to be X. C. Cogglns,
of the Cogglns Bros. Lumber Company,
of Siskiyou County, Cal. He delivered to
the printer an electrotype bearing the
name of this company, together with a
quantity of bankers sarety paper, and re
quested some drafts printed. The print
ers, thinking the order a suspicious one,
reported the case to Chief of Police Mc
Lrauchlan. with the result that the Chief
made arrangements to arrest the man
when he called for the drafts on Saturday
morning, and the plan was accomplished.
On "visiting the police headquarters and
examining the man, and afterwards com-

Insurance Man, Well Known In Port

on a charge of obtaining money under
false pretenses, wras a resident of Port
land some 10 years ago, and is more or
less known to the insurance men of the
city. He remained here several yeans,
during which time he was connected with
a number ot well-known Insurance com
panies as general agent and manager, and
was a respected and active member of
the Christian Church. He had more than
avemere natural ability, and was looked
upon as a very successful insurance man,
both in the field and in the office. He had
a touch of indolence in his makeup, how-

and he gradually Jost his prestige In bus

Baker City, where he was taken in" cus
tody by the police on a charge of forging-
the name of J. Frank Porter, an In
surance man of that place, to a oheck
for $10. Friends secured his release by re
funding the amount and paying the costs
of the case. His defense was that in
temperance and insanity had made him
irresponsible. His record In- the vicinity
of Baker City was bad, and he did not
remain there Jong.
Frank Ralff, an Insurance man of Se

CONCEBJflNG A STREJ&T LINE,'
Referee's Report Filed After Eight
, Years' Wait.
R W. Montague, as referee, has filed a
report In the suit of Angcllne Berry, Don
ald McBrlda and Sarah J. Banfield against
the City of Portland, brought "to restrain
the city from Improving East Oak street
from Twelfth to Sixteenth street by grad
ing and macadamizing. " Mrs. Berry is
the owner of .property In block.,321. Bur
ners Addition,.-fronting - on the street,
and the other plaintiffs also own lots
having a frontage on East Oak street.
The complaint of plaintiffs Is that the
suivey made 'fay the City Surveyor brings
the south line seven, feet south upon the
property of the plaintiffs, and will de
prive them each of a strip of land seven
feet In width on the north side of their
property,Xor' which they will, receive -no
compensation, and further that hey will
be compelled to move their house"-, fences
and shade trees.. They, contend that the
northern boundary of the street as It now
Is, Is' on a line parallel with the base
line of United States surveys, and also
the same as fixed by the City of East
Portland In 1SS4, when the street was Im
proved. The suit was filed March 29. 18D2,
and has for some reason not yet reached
a flnaU determination. It still bids fair
to be delayed, as the City Attorney has
filed a motion objecting to the Teport of
The referee decides in favor of. Mrs.,
Berry, and against the other "two. He
states that in the original surveys of
Burnell's Addition, the true location of
the base 41ne was not .known, nor re
garded, "and that the south line of blocks
321 and 2S1. where plaintiff's property is
situate, as actually located on the ground,
was but 23 feet north thereof, and 30
feet north of the center line of what Is
now East Stark street.
In 1884 the City of East Portland opened
J, now East Oak. street. The 'south line
between Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets
was established 203 feet north of the
north line of East Stark street, and ap
proximately to the line which Mrs. Berry
now occupies. As to the property of Mc
rlde" and Banfield, the testimony Is
otherwise, and their north line Is,- as al
leged by defendant, 223 feet north of the
base line, and this line Is the south line
of East Oak street, as actually surveyed
and opened by the City of East Portland
It follows that as to the plaintiffs, Mc
Brlde and Banfield, the suit must be
dismissed. As to the plaintiff, Mrs. Berry,
the establishment ot this street In front
of her property and the subsequent Im
provement by Tier Is to be treated as an
estoppel against the city, or'as the ref
eree says, he should prefer to x hold the
opening and laying out of the street
amounted 'to an authoritative 'determina
tion of Its place, and the city cannot now
change its street llne"except",in'the man
ner provided by the charter, .and Mrsv
Berry Is entitled to a decree restraining
the city from encroaching upon the line
mentioned, 203 feet north o the. north line

JOHN WILSON'S FUNERAL
DIU HILL SPEAKS ''OF CHRISTIAN
He-Refer to the Deceased's Rellgr
- ions Life Tribute From Genernl
German" Aid 'Society.
Dr. Edgar P. Hill, pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church, officiated at the fu
neral services over John Wilson yesterday
afternoon. A large number of frlend3 as
sembled at the family residence, where
services were held. The pallbearers were:.
P. L. Willis, S. Penrioyer, J. A. Strow- J
uwuge, x. vr. wiuieiiuuse, b. r. .uee ana
Ai "-'S. "Frank. In referring to one well
krtown characteristic of Mr. Wilson, Dr.
-Hilt said: ,
"I expect that we very much differ con
cerning the religious life of Mr. 'Wilson.
There are those here today wrho are more
familiar with that than I am. But then
Is one thing I can say, and that Is, he
was tremendously interested In the sub
ject of religion.' He was eagerly Inter
ested In the philosophy of religion. He
always spoke to me with utmost rever
ence concerning religion. He talked of re
ligion, but as the;years went by and He
began' to Investigate and his thoughts
were led this way and that on these
great subjects, he often found himself
getting away from many things which In
his childhood had been accepted .without
"There Is an agnosticism which God's
work recognizes and approves. Paul shows
his sense when .he said, 'We know In
part.' John, who by some has been called
the eagle eye of the apostles, said: 'We
know not what we shall be,.' Again and
again are expressions along the line, 'we
see through a glass darkly.' There is
such a thing as Christian agnosticism,
nd a man, even though he has spent
his lifetime In the study of the Scrip
tures, who speaks dogmatically always
concerning the great things of God, simp
ly announces ana auvcrusqs nis pariiat,
very partial, knowledge. The things we
know, my friends, the things we know, la
the little Inland In the vast ocean of
truth; and the difference between the
agnosticism of Paul and the agnosticism
of the man,, who turns away from the
Scriptures is that Paul walks along the
way feeling that the aim of life Is not
the possession of facts which God has
held from us; butr-Mt -rather Is a right
attitude, towards the things which have
been revealed; while the man who pa
rades his agnosticism shows his ignorance
by closing his eyes to things which have
been revealed, and turning from known
things and turning towards the unknown,
and excusing his conscience for withdraw
ing from'rellgious light.
"A short time before my Summer vaca
tion 1 satat the bedside of Mr. Wilson
and spoke a word concerning religion, and
he made this remark, speaking slowly and
.with much emphasis: 'I was trained very
religiously, and lt is difficult for a man
to get away from" the training of his child
hood.' He knew, no doubt, that he was
standing on the threshold of the unknown
world, and lt may be that even then out
of the haze there were shining the clear
rays or the sun of righteousness. Apd
let us trust that now, face to face with
him in whom are hid' all the 'treasures
of wisdom and knowledge, he Is having
explained these gr,eat questions which for
so many years he loved 'to think about."
Dr. Hill's praise for the departed em
phasized his love for good books, active
interest In education, pure business quali
ties and love for mankind. "Among the
friends present were, Ludwlg Levy and
President John Relsacher, of the General
German Aid Society; bearing resolutions
passed by that body, which illustrate the
quiet benevolence of the dead man. These
resolutions were as follows:
For nearly a -quarter of a century has

benevolence, as well as his regular con

meeting, which will be held two weeks
hence In trie Forbes Presbyterian Church,
