WILLIE GEORGE PRISONER
Paroled Iind From Reform School
Tells Remarkable Story.
Willie George is a prisoner at the
City Jail, having been arrested yester
day afternoon because he is a fugitive.
being a paroled inmato of the Whittier
Reform School, of California. He tells
a most remarkable story of his life,
saying, he has been in the institution
since he was 5 years old. He is now 19
"I was sent to the "Whittier School
when 5 years old." said the young man
when Interviewed at police headquar
ters. "I was put in the place by the
efforts of my stepmother, who took me
from St. Paul to Los Angeles for the
purpose. My father Is a wealthy man
of St. Paul and owns the Trinity Var
nish Works there. I am the only son
and am heir to his large estates. When
I am of age I will come into possession
of large sums of money and much prop
erty. "My uncle. H. E. Chapman, who lives
at 2166 Gladys avenue, Chicago, Is my
guardian. By provision of law he was
authorized to send me $60 a month for
my support, but he has never'done so.
I became expert In music during my
long stay at the Whittier School, and
can play several instruments. I was
a good boy and got paroled. I should
not have left California, for that was
one of the. conditions of the pardon,
but I wanted to get out and make my
way in the world In new surroundings.
In searching for a better position than
I had at the Fair grounds, I called at'
a large hotel here to nsk for the posi
tion of drummer, as they had adver
tised for one for their orchestra. I
truthfully told them I learned music
in the Reform School, and they Imme
diately told the police. I was then
taken to headquarters.
Chief of Police Grltzmacher ordered

to the case.

East Stark Street Bids Too
High for Owners.
BIDS TO BE RE-ADVERTISED
Question of Oiling Roads Is Dis
cussed by Street Committee, and
City Engineer Wanrer Will
When the question of awarding con
tracts for street Improvements came up
before the street committee of the Ex
ecutive Board yesterday afternoon, there
was such a howl of disapprobation from
property-owners relative to the magni
tude of the cost of the proposed Improve
ment of East Stark from the east line of
East Ninth to the west line of East Twen
tieth street, that the committee con
cluded to readvertlse.
The bids were opened last Friday,
and the Pacific Bridge Company was
the only bidder for the entire work at
119.726.78. although Joplln & Mceks put
In a bid of $137.45 for a fraction of the
work running from the center line of East
Ninth to the cast line of East Ninth
All the other awards for street Im
provements submitted at tho last meet
ing of the Executive Board were made
upon the basis of the lowest bid.
The following streets were accepted:
East TweKth, from the south line of
Multnomah to the south line of Tilla
mook, and East Fifteenth, from the north
line of Multnomah to the south line of
The committee did not feel disposed to
accept East Stark street, from the cen
ter line of East Seventh to the center
line of East Ninth, and Burnside, from
the east line of Third to the east line of
Front, without further Investigation,
hence action thereon was postponed un
til the next meeting.
A resolution requesting the Executive
Board to remove the guards on cither
side of the railway tracks across the Morrison-street
bridge was referred to the
City. Engineer for Investigation, although
Captain Wanzer did not view the Idea
In a favorable light
The proposition of the Ladd Estate to
furnish material with which to redeck
the elevated railway along East Stark
street from Grand avenue to East Sev
enth street providing the cljy would fur
nish the labor, was accepted.
The committee postponed action on the
petition of J. A. Venning and others to
compel the street railway company to
operate Its cars on Chapman street, or
else suffer the revocation of Its franchise
there, as more time was wanted In which
to Investigate the matter.
The question, of oiling some of the'
streets In the city suburbs came up for
consideration, and after considerable dis
cussion. City Engineer "Wanzer was di
rected to correspond with districts In
California, where petroleum has been
used on the public highways, and advise
the committee at its next meeting of the
result of his researches upon the subject.

Richard Harding Davis knows but one

and is assigned to a dinky post down in
tne cactus ana amaii. 59 miles away from
the Santa Fe, to which a stage runs
every' day In spite of weather and road
agents. This Is where the play opens.
Ranson has been at the post long
enough to cuss his luck because there
is no active service In sight
As might be expected there is a post
trader's daughter, another edition of
"Hope Langham." who wins Ranson's
heart and gives her own in return. This
girl seems to be the only reason why
the young lieutenant hasn't bolted the
Army and gone, to Panama or Tonopah.
In the first act when the hero's dis
gust at the dust and the gnats and the
50 miles frpm a railroad Is greatest the
mess starts talking of stage holdups.
Ranson declares that any old piker has
nerve enough to rob a stage.. The other
fellows who know the frontier better,
hold a different vJew, and to to prove
his theory he starts out to rob the stage
on its night trip with no more formida
ble weapons than a pair of scissors. He
has a revolver on him but agrees to ac
complish the Joke without displaying It
The others try to dissuade him from his
wild prank, but he persists, and goes out
into the night to play the trick. This is
Ranson's folly. He succeeds in his bluff
for he finds only two women In the stage
and the driver "throws up" at sight of
the gleaming scissors, mistaking them
for a "six," in the moonlight He does
n't realy rob anybody and rides back to
quarters, laughing at the ruse only to
find that there has been a real holdup,
that a paymaster coming along the same
road In another vehicle has been robbed
shortly afterward, while the driver and
himself are more or less shot-up.
Here Is a pretty kettle of fish for Ran
son. and he Is promptly arrested on the
charge of being the sanguinary highway
man. Of course everybody but the pretty
girl believes him guilty, and equally of
course In the end the real culprit Is
brought In and the matter Is Ironed out
with a promise of a jretty military wed
ding soon to be announced.
"Ranson's Folly" was a corking good
army story when It was published three
or four years ago, and It makes a better
play. It Is the best of the Davis efforts
at dramatization and has most of the in
gredients of permanent success. Robert

He acts the dashing role of Lieutenant
Ranson so well that old Portland ad

selves that he Is the same old Frawley,
The piece Is well calculated to give a
star full leeway and a good portion of
the center of the stage. He has a lot
of splendid speeches and situations, and

A. F. Sheldon Speaks for the
CLUBR00MS ARE CROWDED
His Theme Is "Business Building by
Salesmanship" and He. Arouses
the Greatest Interest 'by
His Brilliant Talk.
The Pacific Coast Advertising Men's As
sociation could not have capped the cli
max of a wonderfully successful conven
tion In a more fitting way than by process
of the lecture given last night under their
auspices by A. F. Sheldon, of Chicago,
who talked on the subject of "Business
Building by Salesmanship."
The reception rooms of the Commercial
Club were crowded to their fullest capac
ity by an Interested audience, many of
whom are prominent In local commercial
circles. The speaker, who possesses a re
markably pleasing manner, held the clos
est attention throughout, and made many
telling points In the emphasis of his Ideas.
His address was directed mainly to common-sense
principles In business, and he
appealed with clear-cut force to the sen
timent of honesty in all commercial rela
tionship. He said that P. T. Barnum had
given voice to the Idea that the American
public liked to be humbugged, and yet
nobody disbelieved the suggestion any
more fully than the great showman him
self, who gave more than value received
in every one of his performances Mr.
Sheldon also regarded It as exceedingly
poor policy to pay any heed to the theory
that there Is "a sucker born every min
ute." because. In the natural order of
things, there are a whole lot more of sen
sible people born at the -same time, and
It was a poor fundamental rule for a
man to regulate his business to catch "the
Believes In Business Ethics.
The speaker was a stanch believer in
business ethics, also, and thought thAt
there was as much Justification for ethics
in trade as there was for ethics In the
professions. It was no part of wisdom,
he said, for commercial interests to be
continuously at war. or for business com
petition to generate petty Jealousies.
There ought to be an understanding upon
a basis of mutual benefit and this could
only be accomplished when there was an
establishment of friendly relationship
among the large Institutions instead of
distrust and competitive enmity.
