10 THE MORNING OEEGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2S, 1005. RAID ON POOLROOM Sheriff Finds Quiet Hand-book-Being Run. PROPRIETOR IS ARRESTED J. V. Fleshman Says He Was Merely Taking Bets for Seattle, but Sheriff Says He Was Selling Pools. Another raid was made on poolsellins yesterday afternoon, when Sheriff Word and Chief Deputy Sheriff Morden arrest ed J, N. Fleshman. The arrest was made In room 22 of the Tacoma lodging-house, and the charge is that of selling pools. The Sheriff received a tip that the law was being violated, and he at once cwooped down on the place. There were about a dozen men in the room at the lime, but the officers saw nothing going on to justify them in arresting any of the number, and so contented themselves with taking Fleshman Jnto custody. He was released by Judge George on a bond fcr 5100 requiring him to appear when wanted before any court. Was Intending to Open. Fleshman was indignant at his arrest, and to a reporter said: "They say I was running a handbook pool business, but I was not. I was thinking of opening to morrow. I took a few bets and sent them to Seattle. If I bet my horse will beat yours, there Is nothing wrong In that. I bet between 52000 and $3000 on the prizefight the other night, and a deputy sheriff was present- They ought to arrest me for that They had no warrant." Says It Is the Worst Kind. Chief Deputy Morden said: "Fleshman was running a handbook pool business of the worst kind. There were at least a dozen men in the room when wc got there. As there was no information on file against Fleshman. nor an Indictment, Judge George said the only way In whloh he could act in accepting a bond was as-a committing magistrate. Fleshman was formerly employed as a bookkeeper In the Warwick Club pool rooms. There is already an Indictment pending against him under the nuisance statute on account of his connection with that establsihment. The present case will probably be referred to the grand Jury,. which is still Jn session. MADE HER GO HUNGRY. Myrtle Howard Says She Was Mis treated by Her Husband. Myrtle Howard has filed an amended complaint in her divorce suit against her husband, Harry Howard. In this she charges him with cruel treatment, failure to provide, and says she was compelled to leave him. She alleges that he choked her and, on one occasion, locked her In a room and refused to let her have any breakfast. They were married at lie Mlnnville in February. 1804- She asks to be restored to her maiden name. Cocker ham. Hop Cases Continued. The suit of Lillenthal Bros. vs. J. R. Cartwrlght, brought under an alleged failure to fulfill a hop contract, came up for hearing in the United States Court yesterday, but was postpoped until Janu ary 9 to allow the filing of an amended answer. The plaintiff strongly opposed the postponement, but Judge Bellinger allowed the time asked for in considera tion of the fact that the defendant was willing to pay all additional costs occa sioned by the extra traveling and ex penses of the plaintiff's witnesses. The eult of Lilicnthal Bros. vs. H. Hirsch berg et al., covering another hop con tract, was set for hearing on January 10. Legal Jottings. In the suit of Mary A. Acton against Alison Acton for a divorce, a motion for a plea in abatement was filed in the State Circuit Court Acton says his wife. In April, 1903, filed a similar suit against him In Umatilla County, which has not been dismissed, and therefore this last case should be abated. Articles of Incorporation of the Morris Mining & Milling Company were filed yes terday In the County Clerk's office by "William J. Morris, Morgan A. Zeller and S. E. Stansberry. The capital stock is J100.000. Incorporation articles of the Wood River Zinc Company were filed yesterday by J. J. Chambreau, William H. Dunckley and John Williams. Capital stock 5150.000. The objects announced are to mine for eold, silver, zinc, etc GEO OH WAS RESOURCEFUL. Mere Legal Trifles Could Not Baffle Young Newberg Couple. B. W. Taylor, of Newbere. turned the tables on Deputy County Clerk F. "W. Prasp yesterday and secured a mar riage license for himself and Mary F. Parks, after having been refused the coveted document. Mr. Taylor came to Portland for the license In prefer ence to driving: from Newberg to Mc Mlnnvllle. the county seat of Yamhill County, over a muddy road. He was not aware that the statute provides that the bride shall reside In the coun ty where the license Is Issued. This technicality of the law. prob ably Intended to prevent the Issuance of licenses where there has been an elopement. Is not strictly observed, as almost dally one or more marriage 11 censes are Issued where both parties to the contract come hero from Cali fornia,' "Washington. Idaho or some In terior county in the state. But in such cases, when the Deputy "County Clerk asks whether the woman In the case resides in Portland or Multnomah Co.unty, the answer given is affirma tive. This complies with the law: the affidavit of the accompanying witness is taken, and the license made out. If the. Wjoman is not a permanent resi dent of the city she is here to be mar ried, and the person who, in response lo the question, says she Is a resident. stf&tches his conscience to the extent that' she Is residing here at the time he so -affirms. It was the groom's lack of knowl edge of the law and how to get around the obstacle which caused Deputy prasp to decline to Issue the license whn it was first applied for by the ap plicant. When Mr. Prasp asked: "Does the lady reside In Portland?" Taylor promptly responded "No." The Clerk then explained that under the law he was not permitted to xrant the re quired legal document, and Mr. Taylor reltlctantly walked away. He proved, however, to be'a man of resources, for, instead of leaving the Courthouse, he hung around in the hall way until Mr. Prasp went to lunch. Setting the desired opportunity, Taylor marched back Into the County Clerk's office with his witness, and this time Deputy A. C. Bamford came to the counter. Taylor asked again for the coveted license, and when the interrogation came. "Does the lady reside in this county?' the proper response was given, and the license was soon made out, signed, sealed and delivered.

Harita and his Italian flag bid fair to leap Into fame almost as enduring and great as Mrs. Woodcock and her "Rosenfelt" ensign, for when Mounted Policeman Croxford attempted to board the ship Celeste and arrest the third mate for shooting seagulls in the river and for discharging firearms in the city limits. the colors of Italy were thrown across the gangplank andl the officer s progress stopped there. Harita, in temporary triumph, laughed In glee. He watched the retreating form of Policeman Croxford, then stooped and picked up his country's tri-colored flag. under it he had long sailed the foamy- seas and now, in a time of need. It had saved him from arrest in a foreign port. But hold! The dramatic unfurling and throwing down of the red. white and green banner across the gangplank and the hasty retreat of the policeman were but the first chapter in the affair. Policeman Croxford hastened to the offlce of Harbormaster Ben Biglln. to whom he told his story. He had seen the haughty and race -proud third mate shoot ing seagulls from the main deck of the Celeste, and had heard the report of the Italian's gun as it boomed on the air. Forth to Deputy City Attorney Fitzgerald went Harbormaster and policeman. War rants were Issued for Harita. When the officers again approached tho ship, Harita did not repeat his previous antic, but accompanied them to the City Jail. All his defiance departed when In discovered that his game had failed o work at the critical moment and today he will explain to Municipal Judge Hogue all about the trouble he has dreated.
