TUB MORNING OBEGQXIAy, FRIDAY. FEBriOARY C, 1903.
H!S WIFE LEFT HIM
And So L. G. Williams Com
HE WAS A SEATTLE BARBERTa
Shoots Himself Turouitn tile Head In.
Told Slster-ln-Lavr He In
tended to Die.
After- quarreUnE with his wife in Seattle,
then following her to Portland and vainly
endeavoring to persuado her to return(
with him, L. G. William!, a seaxue d ar
bor, last night ended his own llfo by
eendlns a bullet through Ma brain. He
left nothing to explain hl9 action, but on
the bureau in his room 'was found a card
Mating that his mother lived In Salem,
corner of Twenty-third and Lesley Btroets,
tla mother-in-law at Dallas, and his
"wife's sister at EM "Williams avenue. East
tportland. No mention was made of hla
fwife nor was there any reference to tno
tmr.Hn between them. The fleed was
'committed between 9 and 10 o'clock last
tolght in a room which ho had encaged at
!tho Can-American Lodging-House. Third
tod Bumalde streets, tno cay ociore.
When seen last nlcht. his wife's sister.
airs. Sylva, who llvta at E20 Willlahio ave
aue, said that she was very much sur
tprleed at the course her brother-in-law
Sjad taken. Sho said that ho had made a
'threat during the day that he would do
. something violent, but that she had not
Regarded the threat seriously.
, The trouble between him and hla wife
'dates from about two weeks ago, when
Jthey had a falling out in Seattle. His wife
deft him after the quarrel, and cams to
Iportland. After spending a row days with
Jhcr sister here, she went to her mother's
3iomo In Dallas, and stayed until a few
Vlays ago. Williams in the meantime had
followed her, and vainly tried to per
suade her to return with him.
"He was here this evening," said Mr.
6ylva. "I tried to get him to utay and
hmve KTinner with us. but he would not.
(He said at the time that he intended to do
'something violent, but we did not think
he meant It seriously. His wife has been
't her mother's at Dallas, but came to
Portland a few days ago to accept a posl
tion at S3) Corbett street." Both Mr. Sylva
and his wife were greatly grieved at the
course the man had taken, and eald that
they had never regarded him aa a man
who would commit such a foolish act.
At the lodging-house little Is known of
the affair, save that ho shot himself in his
room between 9 and 10 o clock. Ho came
to Mrs. J. Halncs, who has recently taken
possession of the house, and 'asked her
for the key to his room. She went with
him and unlocked the door and started
back to her office She had no sooner got
to the office door than che heard a shot.
Several of tho roomers came running Into
the hall. The door had been left partly
open, and the wounded victim lay In a
pool of blobd on the bod. In his left hand
was clutched an old second-hand cS-call-bcr
revolver that .had been used for the
deed. The landlady said that he had
not had time to write anything between
the time she left and the time she heard
the shot, but on the bureau was a postal
card, on which was written his name and
the addresses of several members of his
Detective Sam Simmons and Coroner
Flnley arrived on the scene quickly and
were the first to touch the body. The
bullet had entered his skull just over the
left temple, and went' straight through
the front of his brain coming out at
about the same place on the opposite side
of his head. He wag very well dressed,
but had no money In his pockets. A fine
watcn chain was fastened to his pocket,
but the watch was not there. In his right
pocket was a half pint flask of whisky,
but none of its contents had been used.
Among a number of scraps of paper was a
barber's card, stating that he was li
censed to practice In tho State of "Wash
ington. The body was removed to Coroner Fin-
ley s undertaking parlors.
WAR OF WORD IN COTJRT
Attorney Shepherd Fires Objections
at J mice Ilotme.
"I do not wish to examine any more
witnesses. If the court will find the
defendant guilty and fix the ball I will
try this case in another court." This was
tho Indignant declaration of O. S. Shep
herd yesterday after ho had vainly tried
to establish several points which Munici
pal Judge Hogue ruled to be Irrelevant.
"CT. S. McCarter was on trial, charged with
larceny by embezzlement of J1J by the
firm of Olds, "Wortman & King, f From tho
beginning of the trial the Judge and the
lawyer for the defense differed on points
that were brought up.
R. R. Dunlway. special prosecutor, be
gan his case by Introducing papers that
(showod that several articles had been
. given to aicCarter for which ho was ex-
ipected to collect cash.
"I object, said (Mr. Shepherd, as the
tpapers were submitted in evidence.
"Objection Is overruled," said the Judge
ipromptly, and Shepherd cave him an lh-
idlgnant look and sat down. As other
papers of the same nature were submitted
the attorney entered 41s objections, which
were promptly turned down by the court.
Receipts, showing that the money had
ceen collected, were also submitted.
"I object;" said Shepherd.
To what?" asked the Judge.
"All of these papers."
Tbey are already accepted. "What do
you want to object to next?"
Edna llounrao was called and testified
that the cash had been turned in.
"Did you tell him he was short?" she
"What did he say?"
"He promised that he would pay me
alter pay day."
"Did he ever offer to par you the
money?" asked Mr. Shepherd, as the
witness was turned over to him.
"Did you take It?"
"No, su" air. Shepherd then made an
attempt to delve la the system of book
keeping that she used, but Judge Hogue
announced that they did not have tune
to learn bookkeeping.
"Have there ever been any mistakes In
your books?" asked Mr. Shepherd, but
tne Judge would not allow the Question.
"If you want to show that there is a
mistake in these particular accounts,'
said he, "I will allow It, but what has
ceen has notring to do with this case.'
A few compliments were passed between
the Judge' and the lawyer for the defense
and the case continued. Mr. King was
the next witness and explained the man
ser of handling the drivers accounts.
"If the driver delivers the bundle and
does not get the cash what do you do
with the account"
"Send him after the money the next
"If be delivers a bundle and never does
get the money for it, what do you do with
the account?" But again the Judge
stopped the questioning.
"I am not in the habit of trying cases
la this way," said -Mr. Shepherd, angrily,
jumping to his feet. "I do not wish to
continue with the case."
"All right." said the Judge, "the de
fendant will be found guilty."
The question of the amount of ball was
'then ergded and fixed at J500. Mr. Shep
herd gave notice of appeal, and the Judge
announced that be would pass sentence.
NO MONEY TO GROW WITH
Committees on Fire nnil Police lie-
fuse to Slate Improvements.
Mayor Williams and William Flledner.
members of tho fire committee, met yes
terday afternoon to go over the monthly
payroll and bills, and receive tho onnuil
reports of Chief Campbell, of the Fire De
partment, ana oi uity Electrician Walker.
r. Curtis, tho other member of the
board, was not present.
Tho Mayor took a good look at the tall
plies of bills and requisitions, and decided
that It was going to be a very unpleasant
job to sign all of them before the board
meeting this afternoon at I o dock. It
was finally decided that Flledner and Cur
tis could sign them, and send them In as
a majority report of the committee.
The funds of the department for the
ccmlng year were discussed, and it was
finally decided that very little could be
done In the way of establishing new com
panies, for the lack of money. Residents
of Brooklyn and SunnysMe want engine
companies, and the people of Alblna want
tho truck company that was taken out
of service during tho hard times and
never commissioned again. Colonel Wcld-
lcr reported that It would tako $5500 apiece
for the engine companies, and $2300 for
the truck company, and it was out of the
question to get money to T)ay for them.
Engineer Walker rubmitteda report on'
the condition of the fire-alarm system, and
asked that he be given authority to trans
fer his signal boxes from tho electric
light poles to the telephono poles, so that
there would be less danger from tho high
potential currents carriod on tho wires
strung on the former. Tho report was
turned over to Mr. Flledner. Mr. Walker
also- asked that ho be allowed a switch
board operator for tho Fire Department
private exchmse furnished by the Pacific
Mates Telephone & Telegraph Company
He stated that he had not enough men t
have one at the board all tho time to an
swer telephono calls and still alarms, and
that h,e needed an operator very badly.
Mayor Williams wanted to know the ex
act working of tho flro alarm system.
and Chief Campbell explained them very
clearly, The Mayor thought that ho would
be able to get In an alarm all right, and
he wa3 of the opinion thit the boxes with
keyless doors were preferable to boxes
where the person wanting to "turn In an
alarm had to hunt up a key. The depart
ment is placing' keyless doors on the
boxes as fast as It can with tho -money
on hand. Chief Qimpbdl and Engineer
Walker wcro instructed to be present at
the board meeting this afternoon.
I want tho Chief of tho Fire Depart
ment, tho Chief of Police, end the Super
intendent of Street Cleaning at every
meeting of the Executive Board," said
the Mayor. "Many questions come up at
the board meetings which these officials
can answer, and if they are on "hand much
time will be saved."
The police commltteo of the Executive
Board met yesterday morning, wtsnt over
the monthly payroll and received aTcport
from City Engineer Walker regarding the
wiring of tho police system of telephones
and signals. Mayor Williams occupied
the chair, and the members of tho com
mittee present wcro C. F. Beebe and Slg
SlcheL Chief Hunt, who was also pres
ent, spoke of the condition that the city
jail was in, and asked that Improvements
of some sort be made. It was tho opin
ion of the committee thit the financial
condition of the city would not permit of
any improvements, and tho jail will bavo
to remain as It Is for tho present.
TO CLEAR SIDEWALKS.
Chief of Police Hunt Issues Order to
A determined stand has been taken by
Chief of Pollco C. H. Hunt against the
practice of piling merchandise on the side
walks in front of tho Business nouses or
using sidewalk spaco for the purposes at
advertising. A sweeping order covering
this condition has been Issued to the of
ficers on patrol duty. Patrolman Caswell,
whose special duty is to servo the civic
Improvement Association, has taken the
matter In chargo and is Improving the con
ditions greatly. Chief Hunt says, how
ever, that the work of a special officer
In no way relieves tho patrolmen from
their duties In this respect
"We cannot ask tho business men not
to use the sidewalk long enough to un
load their goods," sold the Chief last
night, in speaxing or tno suoject. nut
there are too many of them who impose
upon the liberties they are allowed. In
some places they have been piling empty
boxes on the street and putting advertis
ing matter over the boxes."
"By giving them time to unload their
goods, do you mean that goods can be
piled on the' walk all of ono day?" asked
"No, sir," promptly replied tho Chief.
"I mean that they will have to move their
things In as fast as they can. It they
bring on a stock of goods they must have
a place to put it. They cannot use space
that belongs to the public
"I will also -insist that tho trapdoors aro
not left optn," said tho Chief, "They are
dangerous, as well as Inconvenient. I
am going to enforce the Ideas of the Civic
Improvement Association. Officer Caswell
Is doing a good work, nnd conditions are
becoming greatly improved. The business
men of the city aro not opposed to en
forcing this rule."

sent Christian Science as tho clear and
practical teaching ot that pure Chris
tianity which has been the highest Ideal
of mankind throughout the past 19 cen
turies. Ho will emphasize the fact that
thla teaching has no relationship with any
of the modern developments of mysticism
or superstition baaed upon the operation
of the human mind, but that It Is rather
that ministry which reaches the needs of
humanity In sickness and In health
through an enlightened understanding and
application of the universal law of God.
The purpose of the lecture Is not to
proselyte nor to attack any established
system of religion or medicine, but to
present the spirit and teaching of Chris
tian Science In such manner as will tend
to disabuse the public mind of miscon
ceptions regarding it.
Mr. Norton is brought to Portland under
the auspices ot the two local Christian
Science churches and his lecture will be
the sixth annual complimentary lecture
given the public In this city by this de

tures has been such as to fill the Marquam

A Swindler Caught.
Several druircrtats and aToem nrnnnrt
New York have been victimized during
the last few months by the old trick of
taking orders for some well-known goods
at a suspiciously low price and delivering
and collecting the money for packages the
outside wrappers of which resemble so
clcsely the genuine that the victims
often pay without further examination.
When opened, the packages are found to
be empty, or to contain rubbish ot some

one swindler has been caught In Philadel

an alias. He was held by the grand jury
and has recently been tried, convicted, and

In the two states to supply about 30
cargoes, of which 3) will clear from Port
land. Twenty per cent of the late yield
is the amount figured by exporters as still
remaining In warehouses and elevators In
the Interior and at tide water. Of this
amount, some 'S.OOO.OOO bushels, after de
ducting what the millers will require and
the usual movement of grain to San Fran
cisco, enough will be left for about 30
average size cssels to carry to foreign
markets. Since the opening of tho crop

cargoes. With 20 more i-heat ships to be
loaded and the usual percentage of flour
cargoes, the grain fleet from Portland for
the season of 1SC2-03 will be In excess of
To provide tonnage for the cargoes yet

Chinese frera the Bay City. This news
was brought to San Francisco by the Pa

noon of January 19. while jvo were there.
She was still anchored off the quarantine
station when we left, on the evening of

following day. Sixteen tons of freight she
carried .from San Francisco for Acapulco
was being fumigated and I was Informed
that all freight from San Francisco for

. PORTLAND. FebTT (To the Editor.)
I notice one Mr. Eddy In an ungentle
manly manner attacked Mr. Burleigh and
accused him of Introducing a bill for
pay; also he (Mr. Eddy) was opposed
to tho bill, for he believed It to be
really for tho benefit of a certain real
estate agent of Portland, and still further
stated that It was not a good bill from

In the bill was actually lobbying for lU

estate man named and tho. only one ot
the firm so named that has visited Salem.
I dertre to make answer to Mr. Eddy's
Insinuating remarks. True. I did visit
tho capital, was there two days, and spoke
to some ten or 15 members purely on the
merita of this measure, but In justice to
Mr. Burleigh would say that he waa not
one of the members. I do not know him
at all; hence he certainly cannot truth
fully be accused, ns Mr. Eddy has Insin
uated. This bill for a state Information
bureau Is a good one. and able to stand
purely on Its merits. That It will do more
to the upbuilding of Oregon than any bill
presented or that will be considered by
the present Legislature Is my firm be

through their own county offices to take
stock of their resources and handle their
own funds. How It Is possible for Mr.
Eddy to, consider this bill Is for tho spe
cial interest of any real estate firm In
Portland Is hard to see. Mr. Eddy spoke
favorably to me of the merits of the
bill, and further stated that the county he
represented failed for the lack of fuifdg to
supply tho Harrlman lines with descrip
tive printed matter. No doubt Mr. Bur
leigh called the turn when he accufed
Mr. Eddy of playing to the gallery to
boost his chances for tho late Thomar
H. Tongue's place no never, Mr. Eddy,

Improved farm lands in tho vicinity of
Russell vllle are held at a pretty steep"
figure. Leand?r Lewis, who' owns consid
erable property In the neighborhood and
has lived thsre a long time, says that the
best lmpioved lands are hell ct from $300
to 100 per acre, and not much Is for fale
cen at those figures. Mr. Lewis said
further that inquiry for land by new
ccmcrs is becoming very frequent. "Two
and three men," he says, "arc out here
looking- fort locations every few days, but
they seem to thli.lc we hold the land too
high. I told them they might get cheaper
land eight or ten miles further out from
Portland, but not cround here."
What Is called brush land Ms held at
about $150 per acre. Two or three tracts
have ben"sold In the neighborhood for
00 per r.cre. and they were regarded as
good bargains. Several years ago Job
Smith, an old Umer. used to often re
mark to his neighbors that the time
would come when the Sandy Rrlver woull
be In the suburbs of Portland, and It
begins to look as If he were correct.
The building movement Is rapidly moving
In that direction from Mount Tabor. Rural
free mall delivery, telephone lines and
car tracks ni'W cover all the territory to
i he Sandy Elver, so that tho .farmtrs en
joy all the advantages cf city life, and
keep In touch with Its dally activities
