Mr. Selling- objected to Satur day, and moved to adjourn until Friday at 3:30 P. M. "Friday's a bad day the hangman's day," objected Rellly, -with a mournful face. "It's not; It's the luckiest day of my life," said Chairman Hughes, and Rellly's objection was overruled, so that the per manent organization will be effected on that ill-omened day, -when tho new mem bers will be present. IN FAVOR OF MRS. SITTON. Charles E. Laild Tclesrrnplis His lies igrnntion From California Per manent Organization "Will Be effected Xext Friday. Charles E. Iadd resigned yesterday as a member of the Port of Portland Commis sion. His vacancy and that of T. B. "Wilcox were filled by the election of Charles F. Swlgert, secretary and treas urer of the City & Suburban Railway Com pany, and Charles F. Adams, president of the Portland Gas Company, and secre tary of the Security Savings & Trust Company. The members of the Port of Portland Commission assembled leisurely yesterday at ternoon, and there was considerable but-4on-holIng of commissioners from outside sources. As Chairman Hughes called the meeting of the members to order, he received a note, which he read, then ex claimed: "There, I have received a sum mons from a very prominent man." The commission assented to his absence, and he returned saying: "Well, my mind's made up. I stand where I did yesterday, Jn favor of the appointment of Mr. Swl gert and Mr. Adams." He meditatively blew some smoke from a half-lighted cigar, and faced the Com. mission: "Well, gentleman, as Mr. Ban field prophesied, we have received some nevts since yesterday. There, read that," and he dramatically handed over a tele gram. It was as follows: Del Monte. Cal., March 5. Assistant Secre tary E. T. C. Stevens: I bes to advise I de cline to serve as a memb?r of the Port of Portland Commission. CHAS. E. LADD. The mystery of Monday's meeting had been Commlsisoner Banfleld's fight for postponing permanent organization, on the ground that he had inside information that something was going to happen in 24 hours. His mysterious air had aroused the curiosity of the Commission. What was going to happen? Banfield refused to answer. When the telegram was read yesterday Banfield wore a mild I-told-you-so look, while the other Commissioners looked re lieved. "You were right. Mr. Banfield. Some thing did happen," said Mr. McCraken. "That It did, Mr. Banfield," chimed in Commissioner ReiUy. "And we didn't lose anything by the de lay," said Banfield, pleased at the con gratulations and recovering sufficiently to relight a half-smoked cigar. "We're now ready for business." "And that business Is the election of new Commissioners," wedged In Chairman Hughes. "I was perfectly frank at the laj-t meeting in stating that I had con ferred with prominent citizens, and that they recommended Messrs. Swlgert and Adams. I feel grateful to those gentle men for saving the bill, and I believe the appointments will be excellent, and so re garded by the public." "I'm with you," chimed In Rellly. "I second the nominations," said Mr. McCraken, nodding his head appreciative ly. "They are excellent men." Mossars. Selling and Banfield approved, and a motion was made closing the nomi nations. Selling, however, insisted that the vote should be by ballot, even if the board was unanimous, because It might set up a bad precedent. "Every member should have the privil ege of voting by ballot, and voting no If he wants to." said Selling. On the vote both Swlgert and Adams re ceived five affirmative battots, and were declared elected. An effort was made to secure the new members and to proceed with the perma nent organization. Assistant Secretary Stevens telephoned for the two. Mr. Swi. gert was found to be In Seattle. "Now, isn't that too bad," said Mr. Stev ens, to the Commission. All five assented. Mr. Stevens kept on telephoning. "Mr. Adams is sick came In squeaky tones from the receiver. "Oh, dear!" ejaculated Mr. Stevens. It was then decided to adjourn for sev- Comment of Outnlde Paper Touch ing Situation in Portland. In an editorial under the caption, "Port land's Latest Trouble," the San Francis co Bulletin submits the following re marks: "Not satisfied with the ordinary troubles Incident to the pilotage of a thriving city, Portland has undertaken to decide by election whether or not a woman shall, serve on the next School Board. Mrs. Slt ton Is the candidate's name, and The Ore gonian, while partially noncommittal, has many nice things to say of her. Nat urally enough, others frown upon the choice, using the threadworn argument of woman's Incapacity and general want of business ability, but If The Oregonian's estimate of the lady be faithful, Portland need have little fear of disaster to the School Department In the event of Mrs. Sitton's election. San Francisco's Board of Education Is presided over by a lady, and It is doubtful If a more capable execu tive has ever occupied the position. True, not many women are equal to the respon sibility involved in the office, but every city has at least a few from which to draw. Broad culture, close application, a fair knowledge of human nature, some executive ability and a devotion to the n tercsts of the department are the only requisites necessary, and in this age "of advance, where woman is treading upon the heels of man in almost every conceiv able vocation. It Is not surprising that many should be found possessing these qualities. Besides, there Is no position more suitable to the talents of a bright woman of affairs than that Involved in the management of the School Depart ment. There she comes in contact with those of her sex. and In numerous ways she Is enabled to extend a helping hand and a word of sympathy, which her male associates are frequently too prone to withhold. "The gifted American woman has come to be recognized as a force In business and professional affairs In all lands. Not long ago Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese Min ister, made this observation: 'No foreign er in America falls to be Impressed with the Importance of the role women play In this country. Their activity In the social and business world gives certain subtle qualities to American life not found where the influence of women Is less generally and definitely exerted. It seemed to me once that there was danger of woman usurping man's place in the world. I have come to think It does not much matter if she does. I believe In the survival of the fittest. Success, surely. Is the only test of fitness. Let the women go on, then; let them go as far as they can. Those who are unfit for the race will fall by the wayside, and only the truly fit can win. "That Is a high tribute to our woman hood, and shows that Wu Ting Fang keeps apace with the times. Success Is surely the test of fitness, and if the voters of Portland but take a leaf from the ex perience of other cities, they will have no hesitation In placing Mrs. Sltton ahead at the polls." Convicted of Larceny. James Hoyt, a young man. was tried and convicted in the Criminal Court yes terday of larceny In the dwelling-house of William Zlmmer. of a manicure set and other articles. The manicure set was re covered in a pawn shop, where Hoyt sold it for $L The defendant In his own be half testified that a man with red hair whom he had known at Anaconda, Mont., gave him the manicure set with Instruc tions to sell It. and that he got 25 cents for so doing. Hoyt on cross-examination by Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Manning, admitted having served a term in the Walla Walla penitentiary for burg lary. Mr. Manning In his argument to thp Jury pointed out that the "other fellow" was blamed for many of the sins of guilty persons, and that the red-headed Individual mentioned In this case was a myth.

Judge Bellinger Held, Under Laws of Oregon, Defendant "Was Part ner "With. Complainants. Judge Bellinger rendered a decision yes terday denying the application for the ex tradition of Ell Frank, and ordering him discharged from custody. Frank, who Is now a resident of Portland, was arrested about a week ago on complaint of Lenz & Leiser, of Victoria, who charged that, while in their employ, he had embezzled some $10,000. The facts In the case, as shown in the hearing before Judge Bellinger, were that an agreement was entered into between Lenz & Leiser, S. G. Spense and Frank by which Frank and Spence were to sell goods for the firm In Dawson under the name of Spence & Co., and Frank was to share In the profits, but there was noth ing said about the losses. This arrange ment, the court held, constituted Frank a partner, and, therefore, according to the laws of this state, he was not guilty of embezzlement, and, therefore, could not be extradlcted. The decision was a lengthy one, con taining quotations from the testimony taken In the case, and entering Into the law relative to extradition cases. Counsel for defendant questioned the au thority of the agent claiming to represent the Provincial Government, and alleged that defendant had an Interest as a part ner In the funds which he was charged with having embezzled. The salient points In Judge Bellinger's decision were: "I am satisfied that the authority of the agent of the Provincial Government of British Columbia Is sufficient to war rant the extradition of the defendant. If the evidence, under the laws of this state, can "be deemed sufficient to sustain the charge. There Is room for question, un der the facts, as to the Jurisdiction on which the alleged conversion took place, but as to this, I am of the opinion that the failure to turn over the money to Lenz & Leiser at the City of Victoria, within a reasonable time after his re turn from Dawson, Is sufficient to war rant an Inference of conversion by the defendant of the funds In his keeping. The firm of Lenz & Leiser seems to have had considerable doubt upon this question. If not upon that of partnership. Inasmuch as the proceedings were not Instituted until a period of six months had elapsed from the time when the de fendant arrived In Victoria, during one month of which time the defendant Frank was In and about the City of Victoria and In the place of business of Lenz &. Leiser. It appears that during this time the defendant endeavored to have what his attorneys call a settlement of the particular matters In question, and em ployed attorneys to that end; and that the firm, on Its part consulted attorneys, whose advice seems to have left the mat ter of the defendant's criminality one of doubt. "The material question to be consid ered Is, Are the facts In the case suf ficient to sustain the charge made? The treaty provides that the evidence of crim inality must be shown according to the laws of the place where the fugitive so charged shall be found. It Is conceded that In this state, upon the principle of common law. the general rule Is. that the ownership of the property alleged to have been embezzled must not be In the accused, either In whole or In part, and that If the defendant was a partner In the business from which the fund was derived, he cannot be held for embezzle ment." Judge. Bellinger then referred to the testimony of S. G. Spence, of the firm of Spence & Co. He testified that an agree ment was entered Into between Lenz & Leiser. the witness and defendant Frank by which Frank was to share In the profits, although the firm was to be con tinued under the name of Spence & Co. He testified that when Frank left Daw son he gave him this money to carry to Lenz & Leiser. The witness also testi fied that Frank had authority to sell goods, but nothing was said about what would happen if the firm lost money, although he understood that the loss would fall on Lenz & Leiser. Mr. Lenz testified that he Invited Frank to enter Into the business venture, by which the latter was to receive one-half of the profits at the end of the season. "Mr. Lenz," continued Judge Bellinger, "when questioned with reference to the expenses of Frank, testified that Frank could have drawn his expenses, but It docs not appear that In the arrangement between the parties there was any ar rangement for such expenses. It appears from the testimony that Spence & Co. at Dawson used the proceeds of the sale of goods to buy other goods. In the con duct of their business. "On the hearing, the rule that where compensation Is to be paid on the basis of a sharing of tho, profits there Is no partnership, was contended for. The rea son for such a rule is obvious. Where compensation is to e 'paid upon the basis of a sharing In the profits, no interest Is acquired In such profits. Reference Is had In such a case to the amount of prof Its, merely as a standard by which to measure the compensation to be received. In all such cases, as suggested, there is no interest In the profits as such. The com pensation that is to be paid Is something distinct and apart therefrom. But if the compensation Is to be paid In profits, a different rule obtains. In such case, the party acquires an interest In the profits as such. "It clearly appears that the defendant had an Interest fn the business of Spence & Company at Dawson. It was not a case of compensation on a basis of profit-sharing, but one of community interest in the profits of the business; and it was more over a case of'parnership, although It is not material that the technical relation of a partnership be shown, so long as an Interest is shown In (he fund which Is the subject of the alleged embezzlement. "The fact that Frank Old not put money into the firm of Spence & Company, or that the arrangement under which he be came connected with the firm differed from the arrangement under which a man named Guttman had formerly entered, signifies nothing more than a possible dif ference, not in the relation of the two in dividuals to the firm, but In their re spective Interests In It. "The agreement made with Frank was for one-half of the profits of the business of Spence & Company. That Is admitted by the parties to the arrangement. Hav ing that Interest In the fund In his hands, he could not under the laws of Oregon be guilty of embezzling the fund. His Inter est was not postponed until the end of the season. It was a present Interest that would continue until an accounting and a settlement was had. The question of losses makes no difference. It seems to be conceded that if Frank was to share In the losses of the business, as well as the profits, lie would be a partner. Now, it Is elementary that, except In cases special ly provided by statute, an agreement to share profits, nothing being said about losses, amounts prima facie to an agree ment to share losses also. Here there was an agreement to share profits, noth ing being said about losses; and this es tablishes a partnership. "It is plain for the testimony that the parties went 'In together' for the season; that Lenz and Leiser and Spence arranged to go In with Frank: that Frank was to have half the profits; that losses were not mentioned or considered. All of these terms are those common to a Joint ven ture, and to nothing else, much less to a mere hiring. So, too, of the conduct of Spenco in explaining the partnership name of the year before, and suggesting that they would leave It as before con duct not likely to accompany a case of hiring, but such as might be expected In a case of joint venture. "If the case were doubtful, I should hes itate to refuse the necessary certificates entailing the authorities of British Colum bia to the acquisition they apply for. In such a case some deference might prop erly be given to the opinion of the au thorities of that province. But the case admits of no doubt; and it is moreover pe culiar in the circumstances that the law of embezzlement differs essentially In Brit ish Columbia from what It does In Ore gon. Mr. Martin, who appears for the province, and Is learned In Its laws, testi fies in that Jurisdiction, a partner may be convicted of embezzling the funds of his firm; so that, upon the facts so far appearing, the defendant would be liable to a conviction In the foreign country, al though not guilty under the laws of this state, by whose laws his criminality must be tested on extradition. If the law of the crime charged was the same In both jurisdictions an erroneous Interpretation against the defendant of the law here would be corrected on the trial In the for eign Jurisdiction, but without this, such an error becomes irretrievable.
