SUESS DIVORCE SUIT
Max Bailey Figures in it' as
WITNESSES FOR HUSBAND
One Testifies That Mrs. Sucss Said
She Would Rather Live on
Bread and Water With
Bailey Than at Home.
At the trial before Judge Sears yes
terday of the divorce suit of William
Suess against May L. Suess, the co-re-Epondent,
Max Bailey, was a conspicu
ous figure In the testimony given by
numerous witnesses. They saw him
at dances with Mrs. Suess and at her
home when her husband was not there.
The litigants were marired In Port
lapd on Christmas day. "1894, and have
no children. Suess Is employed as a
sawyer at Inman, Poulsen & Co.'s mill,
and receives a salary of $175 a month.
The evidence showed that he provided
liberally for his wife and owned a neat
home in Feurer's addition. There Is
no disparagement in the ages of the
parties, but a certain degree of incom
patibility. They quarreled frequently,
and Mrs. Suess took advantage of the
absence of her husband at the mill
nights to go out with her friends. At
dances Max Bailey was her most con
A witness for Suess testified that on
one occasion she called on Mrs. Suess
and was unable to engage her in con
versation. The next day she met Mrs.
Suess and learned that the reason she
refused to talk was because she had
Bailey hidden behind a lounge in the
parlor at the time.
Mrs. Ella Bartlett. who is a sister of
Mrs. Suess. and her husband, H--W.
Bartlett. both testified to having called
on Mrs. Suess at 327 Salmon street, at
the residence of Mrs. Kyle, another
Bister, since the divorce suit was com
menced, and found Max Bailey there,
lying on a lounge.
Miss Kate Ilannegan was an inter
esting witness. She once llved at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. Sue'ss and
went to dances with her afterwards.
They were good friends. The witness
knew Max Bailey and met him at
dances when he paid attention to Mrs.
Suess and accompanied her home. On
one occasion the three went boat-riding
Jtogether. and Mrs. Sucss took a
seat in the boat from where, as she re
marked, "she could look at Bailey."
Miss Hannegan also -testified that Mrs.
Suess confided in her that she loved
Bailey and hoped her husband would
get killed in the mil so that she could
Several witnesses gave testimony
that when she went to the coast, Mrs.
Suess posed as an unmarried woman
and did ,not want to be addressed as
Mrs., or to receive letters so addressed.
E. E. Thomas, a brother-in-law of
Mrs. Suess. testified that she told him
she loved Bailey and would rather live
on bread and water with Bailey than in
a good home furnished by her husband.
Thomas said he told her if she would
supply the bread Max would probably
furnish the water. Thomas further
testified that about a year ago Mrs.
Suess told him she was going to San
Francisco after she obtained a divorce
from her husband to marry a man
named Mattoon. Various other wit
nesses testified, including Miss Nellie
Coucher. Mrs. A. Coucher. Joseph Fay.
J. H. Turner. Delia Krantz and James
Peterson. They all knew Max Bailey.
The trial will be resumed today. J.
H. Hitchlngs appears as attorney for
Mrs. Suess and Ralph Dunlway for the
heart of the greatest grain-producing 1
region of the world in the Mississippi
and Missouri Valleys. This morning
President A. B. Stickney. of the Chi
cago Great Western, will arrive In
Portland from San Francisco, occupy
ing a private car and accompanied by
a party of friends, to remain several
There was a time when the system
of which Mr. Stickney is the execu
tive head was not quite so secure in
the enjoyment of traffic as at present,
but the Independence of its president
was always such as to Insure that Its
existence must be reckoned with, and
no American railroad official played the
game for business more skillfully. Sev
eral rate wars have been precipitated
in the grain states that other lines
charged to President Stlckncy's ag
gressiveness, but in all of them he
seems to have been uniformly success- j
ful In winning his point. i
STIFF BREEZE INTERFERED !
Why Blaze of Bed Light on Hood
Was Not Seen.
George M. Weister and E. H. Moore-
house have returned from their Mount
Hood trip, where they went to set oft
the red fire on the night of July 4.
They made the trip successfully, car
ried 50 pounds of red fire to the hlgnest
point of the mountain and lighted It at
exactly 3 o'clock on the night of the
Fourth. While it was not noticeable
from the Exposition grounds, many
people who were In town saw the light
distinctly, and from The Dalles anJ
Hood River it gave a brilliant illumi
nation of the mountain. Both Mr. Wei
ster and Mr. Moorehouse are convinced
that if it had not been for the severe
gale which was blowing on the moun
tain at the time, fanning the flame of
the fire down and out Instead of allow
ing it to blaze up and show a broad
surface of light, that the illumination
from Portland would have been en
tirely satisfactory. The lights of the
city and Exposition grounds were
easily seen from the mountain top and
it was easy to distinguish the illu
mination of The Oregonian building
and of the 1935 sign from the other
lights. The searchlights, which play
at the Fair grounds each night were so
plainly visible tnat the long flash of
light across th,e sky which they make
could be seen moving about as the
lights were turned. Mr. Moorehouse
says if a powerful searchlight was
placed on the summit of Mount Hood
that it would be seen for hundrcJs of
miles around the country and prove one
of the greatest advertisements for the
Pacific Northwest which man could
CLUBS FOR BOYS PLANNED
Annex to Juvenile Court Is Under
As an adjunct to the Juvenile Court
Judge Frazer is planning the organiza
tion of a Juvenile Aid Association, the
purpose of which will be to form boys
into clubs of various kinds, and to break
up gangs of boys which encourage bad
practices and lawbreaking. Baseball clubs
will be organized, and swimming and oth
er sports encouraged under proper con
trol. Recently 52 boys were arrested for
swimming who had no bathing suits.
They explained that they had to walk
four miles to reach the free baths, as all
live distant at th North End and
if they had bathing suits there was no
piace to aress ana unuress. Judge Fra
zer has arransred to hold a mpniinr- with
the boys Saturday, and to have a house
erected which they may use in dressing.
Edward Holman, who Is at the head of
the Free Bath Association, has subscribed
ou ror tne purpose.
Similar arrangements for swimming ad
vantages are to be given the boys in
South Portland, who are too far away
from the public baths.
Under the supervision of the Juvenile
Aia Association, wnich is to be formed to
co-operate with the Juvenile Court, about
100 boys who cannot afford an nntlnr- will
receive a week's vacation either in the
mountains or at the- coast this Summer.
It is planned to take about 25 boys out
to the camp, when it Is established, for
a week, and then take a similar number
for the next week, and so on for four or

BECAUSE HE OWED BILL
Guard Arrested for Xot Paying for
It Is believed that Guard Dudley Bea-
mer. of the Lewis and Clark Exposition
staff, will not be prosecuted on the
charge of owing a board bill of 56, for
which he was arrested while on duty in
the Mining building late Wednesday night.
It is thought the matter will be adjusted
out of court.
When the case was called before Mu
nicipal Judge Cameron yesterday. Dep
uty District Attorney Haney stated that
It would have to bo postponed until Sat
urday. MjJor McDonell, commanding
the Exposition Guards, took upon him
self the responsibility of producing
Beamer in court, and the guard was re
leased on his own recognizance.
Guard Beamer was arrested by Ser
geant of Police Baty. commanding the
first relief at the Upshur-atrect station.
and not by Patrolman Raney, as pre
viously published. Raney escorted
Beamer to headquarters, as a matter of
accommodation, after Sergeant Baty
had made the arrest inside the Mining
"If any mistake was made, it was
made by me," said Sergeant Baty yes
terday. "I went personally and served
the warrant on Beamer. I have had
much experience in military life, and It
Is absurd to say that I took Beamer
from duty without first seeing to it that
his place was filled by another guard.
The arrest wa& not known at guard
headquarters at the time, for Beamer
begged me to keep It quiet, saying he
would borrow the money to pay the
board bill and perhaps settle the mat
ter that way.
"After a guard had taken Beamer's
place in the Mining building, I took
Beamer to the Upshur-street station
and asked him if he wished to go to
headquarters In a wagon, or to ride on
a car. He preferred to take a car, and
to accommodate him. I detailed Patrol
man Raney to escort him."

Street-Car Record Is Broken.
Cars of the Portland Consolidated Rail
way Company carried GO per cent more
passengers Tuesday last than were car
ried by the two street railway companies
on the corresponding date of last year,
and fully 20 per cent more than on the
first day of the Fair when the entire
population of the city seemed 'to have
turned out to witness the street parade.
While figures are not given out it Is un
derstood that more than 200.000 passengers
were handled during the day and the only
line on which cars were run later than
usual was that to St. Johns, extra cars
were held In readiness on other lines, but
went to the barns without any necessity
for making a trip. It Is a record of ln
terurban traffic that will probably not be
broken for a long time.
