S THAT CUT
Mayor's Keen Wit Hits
BEFORE BAR ASSOCIATION
"Portland as Law-Abiding as
. Any Other."
TAKES FLING AT JUDGES
Alfred F. Sears, Jr., Elected Presi

Fourteenth Session Co mm 1 1-

that it Is the most governed city in the

and myself singing also.
"The Municipal League is composed of

he left in a very unsavory condition.
"A reform measure that is carried on
with revolvers and sledgehammers may
be best for the city there is even some
doubt about this.
"We have four of the best Circuit
Judges in the state. They are prone to
nervousness when they are confronted
by honest gamblers. Judge George
shdwed this when he rendered a decision
the other day that took up two columns
in the newspapers.
"In spite of the howling of the press
and the preachers, Portland is as law
abiding as any city in the world."
All these and many more bon mots were
handed out by Mayor George H. "Williams
at the banquet given last night by the
Oregon Bar Association at the Commer
cial Club. The banquet was the closing
feature of the 14th annual meeting of
the association, and it was a happy end
ing to one of the most successful meet
ings ever held by the members of the
bar. The banquet was attended by local
members of the bar and bench and also
prominent members of the bar from
throughout the state. A splendid dinner
was served and at the close a well-selected
programme of speakers were lis
tened to with a great deal of Interest.
Lionel R- Webster, in a most happy
vein, introduced the different speakers,
and the lawyers remained seated around
the tables until a very late hour. Mayor
Williams was the first speaker. The sub
ject assigned him was "The Lawyer in
City Government." The Mayor treated
his subject in a light vein, and he car
ried his audience along with a series of
stories about the various reform associa
tions which helped to make his tenure of
office a happy one. His address was wit
ty and satirical to a degree. His refer
ence to the many good people of the city
who knew more about running the city's
affairs soon set the many lawyers pres
ent in rare good humor, and he was re
peatedly interrupted by applause. In the
language of the street poet, he "took a
fall" out of all the reform associations,
the Judges on the bench, and wound up
with a bit of glistering on Sheriff Tom
Word. It was all good-naturedly done,
so much so that the fling the Mayor took
atJ. N. Teal, who was present, struck
him so that he laughed and applauded
louder than any one else.
Seven Other Speeches.
The other speakers followed the May
or's strain of light and serious vein. The
speakers and the subjects assigned them
"What the Beach Owe tho Bar," John B.
"The End of tho Xiaw," "WalcVemar Seton.
"Our Tmty to the Bar Association," Charles
"The Client," William D. Wheelwright.
"The lawyer's Obligation to Society," C H.
"Ebsll&h Courts in Action," George S. Shep
herd. TIra Lawyer and Culture," Wallace Mc
Camant. Jndgo Bellinger was scheduled for an
address, but he sent word that tho land
fraud cases had tired him exceedingly
and he begged to be excused.
The morning session of the gathering
was taken up with the regular routine
business. The report of the executive
committee was read by Secretary A. F.
Flegel, and it showed "the difficulty ex
perienced in getting speakers for the an
nual session. It also gave the reason for
postponing the annual meeting two weeks
to arrange for the session. The report
was adopted, and was followed by Treas
urer C J. Schnabel's report, showing a
balance in the treasury of $490.44. He also
handed In his resignation, after serving
as treasurer of the Bar Association for
the past ten years.
Report on Oitchburn.
In the case of the disbarment proceed
ings against John DItchburn, the commit
tee on grievances reported that while, in
their opinion, they believed Mr. DItchburn
guilty of unprofessional conduct with his
client, John Forebush. they would not
recommend disbarment, as they believed
the offense was minimized. During the
session the special committee on uniform
legislation reported, favoring more uni
form laws In the United States, especially
to marriages and divorce. Attached to
the report was a bill providing for the ap
pointment of a state commission on the
subject. This is to be Introduced at the
next meeting of the Legislature. The
committee bringing In the report consists
of J. Kramer, H. Gruber and E. C. Bro
naugh. The report met with the hearty
Indorsement of the lawyers present at the

NOT BEE LEGAL HUSBAND.
W. N. McLaughlin Says He Married
His Wife Too Soon After Divorce.
"W. M. McLaughlin, whose wife, Almlra
J. McLaughlin, recently sued him to ob
tain a decree dissolving the matrimonial
bonds existing between them, says he Is
her third husband, and that she makes a
business of getting married and divorced.
McLaughlin yesterday filed an affidavit
in the State Circuit Court In answer to
a petition of his wife asking that he be
required to pay her $150 to enable her "to
pay the expenses of this suit against him.
He recites in the affidavit that, as a
matter of fact, he is not her legal hus
band at all, for the reason she was mar
ried to him within six months from the
time she was divorced from Thomas W.
Jenkins, in Seattle. The divorce decree
forbid her to remarry until after the
expiration of six months. She was di
vorced from Jenkins September 26, 1P03,
and her marriage to McLaughlin was
solemnized at McMlnnville, March 24,
1901. This is a close shave, because It
gives McLaughlin only a margin of two
days to get within the six-months' limit,
but he thinks ho can make the point
stick. Before she was Mrs. Jenkins, Mc
Laughlin asserts that she was known as
Mrs. Lee. McLaughlin denies all the
charges In the complaint.
T,he allegations of Mrs. McLaughlin
are that the defendant was jealous of
her, and carried on a vexatious espion
age on her movements. She says he
wrote a vile letter to her in October last
containing false accusations, which she
submitted, to the United States postal
authorities and caused him to be ar
rested. McLaughlin owns property in Polk
County valued at $7000. Mrs. McLaughlin
asks tho court to decree her one-third
of it and $40 per month alimony.

The "Visiting Nurse Association yester
day called a meeting at which delegates
from the various churches and organiza

have these institutions interest themselves
In the work and lend both financial and
personal assistance. There was a good
response to the call, and aside from the
churches the Young Women's Christian
Association, the Needlework Guild of
America, the Unitarian Women's Alliance,
the Christian Union, St. Ann's Society,
Women's Union. W. G. Elliot Fraternity,
King's Daughters and many other organ

Iran D. Lyons, Idaho pioneer, and
a man known all over the Pacific
Coast, has been missing since No
vember 17. and his wife, living' at
Jullactta. Idaho, fears that he has
met with foul play. The police of
the Northwest and as far south as
San Francisco have been notified,
and are searching for him. Thus far
they have been unable to And a trace

Mrs. Lyons fears her husband has
been murdered and robbed, for she
states that he has never before failed
to write to her every day, when ab
sent. This time she has had no
word from him since he left the
Cottage Hotel at Spokane, on the
morning of November 17. At that
time. It has been ascertained, he was
handed his money. $2100, and board
ed a train for Edmonds, Wash., a
small town between Seattle and Ev
erett, on the line of the Great North
ern Railroad. But that he never
reached there Is shown by the re
turn of all letters addressed to him
at that place.
Lyons lived for 20 years at Cotton

gestcd that every member make herself

sake of suffering humanity. At the close of
her Interesting talk she Introduced Dr. K.
A. J. Mackenzie, who unhestltatlngly pro
nounced the work of the visiting nurse
"the most deserving and practical charity
I know." He stated that Its purposes
were of the noblest, and underneath the
many cases of "surface prosperity" which
the general public did not penetrate, tho
Visiting Nurse Association was enabled to
relieve the greatest amount of suffering
The great importance of the work in
contagious disease was dwelt upon by
Dr. Mackenzie at length, and he referred
to the poor chances of such patients for
recovery without the services of the
"A nurse can educate the household,
and In that her services are Invaluable.
She can teach its members the value of
cleanliness, fresh air and sunshine. There
are many kinds of bacteria which can be
killed by the rays of the sun, and In many
cases of poverty and destitution It is only
through the offices of the trained nurse
that the sun ever penetrates Into those
"I want this association to understand
that physicians are not indifferent or
apathetic to your great charity. It Is
highly appreciated, and I for one want to
become a member of an organization
which does such great and noble work."
Dr. S. S. Wise followed with an equally
sympathetic address, commending the
work of the association.
"Emerson defined civilization as the
power of good women." he said, "and In
that respect the civilizing effect of your
work cannot be too highly estimated. One
of the most admirable things about the
way this association does Its work is
that It does not force the suffering to
parade their poverty and misery before the
world, for. Instead of having to beg, they
are sought out and relief administered
unasked. The visiting nurse is a walk
ing hospital, and when she goes Into the
homes of the suffering poor she carries
with her the benefits of such institutions.
She Is a helpful and wise protest against
the tendency to institutionalize every
thing. The tendency of the wise charity
workers Is away from institutions, and I
expect to see1 the time when orphan
asylums will be done away with entirely."

himself to become a member.

Oregon Water Power & Railway Ob
taining Right of Way Through
Troutdale and Fairview.
GRESHAM. Or.. Nov. 29. (Special.)
Agents of the Oregon Water Power &
Railway Company have been engaged In
this neighborhood during the past two
weeks securing right of way for the pro
posed branch road to Troutdale.
The branch will leave the present track
at Cedarvllie, two miles west of here, and
will cross the Base Line about one mile
west of the Twelve-Mile House. From
there it will go through Fairview. thence
to Troutdale, and down the Sandy River
to its mouth, where a ferry will be put in
operation across the Columbia to La
The right of way has all been secured
except for less than one mile. One farmer.
through whose land the surveys have been
made, is offering opposition, but his pro
tests will not be heeded, and It is proba
ble that condemnatory proceedings will
be commenced against him.
A protest, numerously signed by resi
dents of Gresham. against the proposed
route was presented to the company, but
was Ignored. An effort was made to
have the branch road run direct from here
to Fairview, but that was deemed im
practicable. It is reported that the
branch will be In operation within the
next six months. The distance is about
ten miles, but the grades will be easy.
A petition Is being circulated asking the
railway company to extend Its telephone
line from the depot to the "central" office
here. By this means messages from other
points could be transmitted over the Pa
cific States Company's line.

How to Make "Cockle-Leekie."
PORTLAND. Nov. 29. (To the Editor.)-In
the menu of a Scotch country dinner pub
lished with others in your paper on Thanks
giving day and which I loked over with much
interest I noticed a dish styled Cockie-Leekie.
I am not able to find It In my cook book and
will be obliged If you will let me know what
It Is, and It possible how It Is made.
The dish in question is a soup made by
boiling a fowl with leeks or onions. It is
an old-time favorite of the Scotch.
"Housekeeper" has probably been misled
In trying to hunt it up by an error In the
name printed, owing to an "h" having
been put in place of a "k". The true name
of the dish is cockie-leekle, but In English
cook books it Is styled "cock-a-leekie."
To make it boil a young fowl in two
quarts of white stock until It Is tender,
then take It up and put It aside. Wash
two bunches of leeks, trim away the roots
and part of .the heads, and cut -them into
one-Inch lengths. Put these Into the broth
and add half a pound of boiled rice and a
litle pepper and salt. Boll half an hour.
Cut the fowl Into neat joints, put It Into
the soup, boil up and serve very hot. The
above Is true cockie-leekle soup. Soup
bearing this name is, however, as often
served without the fowl as with it. Time
required for cooking an hour and .a half.
