Crowd Fill3 Municipal Court to Hear
A gaping" mob of a hundred men of
all ages had their pains for nothing
when they stood through the long ses
sion of Police Court yesterday morn
ing, awaiting the opium-smoking case
against two young women and a broken-down
male dope fiend. The male
person, Fred Davis, -was on hand, but
there was no trace of "a rag, a bone
and a hank of hair." They were rep
resented by Attorney John Logan, who
pleaded not guilty for them. For Davis
quick work was made of proving them
guilty. The testimony of Sergeant
Slover, who arrested them, was taken,
and Mrs. K. A. Cox, the voluble land
ady of the Joint in which the dope
.moking trio was arrested, told of their
entrance to her place, but denied know
ing anything about their having
As soon as it was seen that the wo
men in the case, who are pretty and
said to be well-connected, were not to
be present, the mob in the courtroom
began disappearing. It was probably the
hopes of recognizing some one known
to them that was responsible for the
attendance of a majority, but there was
nothing' in the court proceedings to
indicate the women's identity beyond
the names on the complaint of "Leona
Harry" and "Grace Templeton," which
are tho names given by them when
they were arrested.
Davis, a miserable, groveling- wreck.
with the marks of dissipation in every
feature of his -face, was fined $50 on
the charge of opium-smoking and sen
tenced to serve 30 days in Jail for being-
a vagrant. Fines of 550 each were
imposed upon the women. Appeal was
at once taken.

SORE AT SHERIFF WORD.
Hotel Man Says Reformer Is Killing
Business in Portland.
"Say," cried a prominent hotelkeeper
yesterday from the anguish of his soul,
"ain't there any way of calling oft that
man Word? He's playing h 11 with the
business of 'this town," whereupon It
transpired that Mr. Boniface's hotel bus!
ness had become so "bum" since the
town was "closed" that he was getting
ready to assassinate the Sheriff. He de
clared that In the last three months his
patronage had fallen off one-half, all be
cause gentlemen from the country can
no longer spend a few dollars "playing
a little game of faro or roulette or seeing
"What are Sheriff WorcJ and the
preachers trying to do anyhow?" he ex
claimed. "Send us to church, hey? Well
they'll never do that. But this thing
can't last: If It does, it will ruin us,
Why shouldn't a man bo allowed to
spend a few dollars for amusement when
he comes to town?" and Mr. Boniface
looked daggers in the direction of the
Sheriffs lair In the courthouse.

cated the saloon, both upstairs and down,
and arrested Nate Solomon. Deputy
Morden was accompanied by nine assist
ants, and after Solomon had been es
corted to the Sheriff's office. Special
Deputy G. W. Wise was placed in charge
or the building.
According to Solomon his arrest was
not a surprise. He declared that he had
wind of an expected visit from the Sher
iffs office since early In the morning.
When Deputy Morden made his call, he
found Nate Solomon In conversation with
Peter Grant, Attorney Ed Mendenhall
and two other men. Deputy Morden in
formed Solomon that he was under ar
rest. Solomon demanded to know with
what he was charged, and was told by
Morden, he says, that it was for con
ducting a poolroom. Solomon then de
manded to know of the deputy whether
he had a warrant, and when he was In
formed by Morden that he had none.
Solomon refused to acknowlcde the ar
rest. Deputy Sheriff Harvey Moreland
used the art of least resistance, a sort
of mild jlu-jltsu movement on Solomon,
which goes on record now as being a
forced arrest. This done, Solomon, In
company with a couple of deputies and
Larry Sullivan, who went along to act
as bondsman. Journeyed to the Sheriff's
office. While waiting for Chelf Deputy

long enough to secure the doors of the
building against any attempt upon the
owners to regain possession. When
Morden arrived at the courthouse. Solo
mon demanded to be released on ball.
The search for a Judge followed and
nnauy boiomon, his bondsmen and a
Deputy Sheriff appeared before Judge
Sears. Judge Sears was willing to ad
roit Solomon to bail, but he first de
manded to know with what specific
crime Solomon was charged. Deputy
Cordano could not tell and Chief Deputy
Morden was sent for. Morden Informed
Judge Sears that no charge had been
made against Solomon, nor had there
beeen a warrant served, but, he added,
that information against Solomon was
being drawn up. Judge Sears then re-
leaseed Solomon without ball of any sort.
under the promise that ho would be on
hand when wanted. This Solomon read
Ily consented to do and he walked out
of the courtroom temporarily a free man.
Handbook Is Alleged.
For ten days or more entries of the
Oakland races have been on the boards
at the Portland Club. There has been
some talk of there having been a hand
book belnc conducted at J the noolroom.
ana it is believed that wncn tne inrorma
tlon is filed against Solomon that he will
be charged with having conducted the
alleged handbook. Solomon, In discuss
ing his arrest while waiting In the Sher
iff's office for the return of Morden, em
phatically declared that he had not sold
a pool or ticket on a race slnco the
place was ordered closed. He says that
the Oakland entries were placed on tho
board for the benefit of those who like to
follow the results of the California
races, and to help out the bar receipts,
It Is hinted, however, by those In tho
"know" "in the Sheriff's office, that agents
sent from the Sheriff's office had placed
and won bets at the Portland Club with
in the past week.
Chief Deputy Morden refused to discuss
the arrest of Nate Solomon and the con
flscatlon of the Portland Club. He ad
mltted that he was acting under legal
advice and that the Sheriff's office took
forcible possession of the Portland Club
without due process of law, and all the

The arrest of Solomon and the closing
of the saloon was a rich topic for con
versatlon among the sporting gentry.
Only a few were in the poolroom when
the officers of tho law arrived, but the
news of the arrest spread like wildfire.
These gentry were painfully and indig
nantly surprised at what they termed
the hlgh-handeed methods of the Sher
iffs office. One Irate sport declared that
the Sheriff of Multnomah County and his
deputies had more power than the Czar
of Russia. Pat Powers, the aged bar
tender, was wrathy when he was In
formed by Morden that It was time for
him to take his cash out of the register
and tret out. Powers talked a little on
his richts. but Morden cut him short
by saying he hadn't time to listen to an
argument, Peter Grant, who used tho
office upstairs where tho raid was made,
also protested, but he yielded when th
chief deputy insisted on nis departure,

In at the Home Training Association meet

ture for young people, as so many useful
suggestions were given about selection of
suitable books. Miss Hassler, w:ho Is de
voted to boys, Is In keen sympathy with a
boy's liking- for hero books, but wants
these same books to be of a sort tbatwlll
bring out all that Is best in the reader's
character. "The later stories of Henty,
Monroe and Optic are not desirable," Miss
Hassler said, "on the ground that they
cultivate a desire for notoriety, obtained
not through any truly brave- or noble
achievements, but In almost any Impos
sible fashion. The stories given to chil
dren should be well bound and printed In
good clear type. ScctCs"" love stories of
grown men and wtfmen are to be preferred
to any Juvenile stories of flirtation be
tween high school children, but if you
give your boy or girl Ivanhoe itself, bound

'Aside from the workmanship you must
see that the story is worth having Itself.
Stories are of universal interest to chil
dren, and they must be clean and whole

Among other very valuable books are

Iliad, which Is given with such fidelity to
tho original as to be next to reading the

Bourne; Miss Johnson's new "Short His

expensive book, there could be no other
more beautiful to select than Howard

less expensive editions are "Robin Hood:

"Did you boys -really bolt tho conven
tion?" was asked of a lad with long
hair, a sweater and a troubled look.
"Did we bolt? Well, I guess we did.
and what Is more we Intend to stay bolt
ed. Wc think that the girls have acted
In an unfair manner. The office of pres
ldent of the senior class has always been
considered as a boy's office. It has been
the custom at the school to give the
office to a boy, just as the managership
of the football team, or the captain of
the baseball team Is given to a boy. It
Is considered that the otfico of president
is just as much a boy's office as either
of these. Many times In the past there
have been more girls than boys. It Is
usually tne case, but the girls nave ai
ways voted for a boy for president. To
do otherwise we think Is unfair, and we
boys have organized Independently of the
girls. Wo will have nothing to do with
their organization, will not attend their
meeUngs or take part In the class work
as planned by them In any manner."
