Testimony of Positive Sort
Heard Yesterday in the
Federal Court.
Joel E. Galavan, Henry Hudson, Wil
ford J. Grain, J. D. Evans and
Christian- Fcuerhclm "Were
on "Witness-Stand.
Jecl E. Calavan appeared In a dramatic
rate at the morning: session of the Wil
Mitn trial yesterday while In the af
toreeon Henry Hudson, the genial man
of Teutonic descent, relieved the strain
by posing: for a time as the comedian of
te trial with such success that even the
fa&raed Judge upon the bench was forced
to tKittte time and again at the uncon
Fckms drolleries of the honest but ner
vovs sheepherdcr from Crook.
Testimony that will at least be con
strued ac damaging to the defense when
the Government begins Its argument was
given at the morning session, while Joel
Calavan was upon the stand. Calavan
stated that he had beon in Portland under
aubpena at both the first and the second
trial of the czsc. but that he had not
been called to testify by the Governmont,
owing to the fact that he had not told
tnem Ms testimony, or all of It, until he
wac before the grand jury at the last
73ttttog. He had also been asked by Dr.
Qoonor to testify for the defense, the doc
tor telling him that all he wanted was
for Mm to tell the truth. Calavan had
toM Getmer that he would not be able
to do Ms cause any good, for he would
be compelled to tell the truth if he went
pon the stand, and the defense had not
catted him. On cross-examination the
witness stated that the conversation al
luded to had not taken place until after
the greater part or all of the testimony
fcd boea introduced.
Discussed Subject of Contract.
Catavan also testified that he had met
Gser on the .street since he had ap
peared before the grand Jury the last
time, and that the defendant had asked
him if be had not been a witness. Cala
van stM that he had, and Gesner wanted
to know what he had said. The witness
stated that he had said a great deal. Ges
ner had then Insisted that he had not
mode any contract with Calavan, who
had taken a claim at his suggestion. The
witness had answered that he had had a
pretty good understanding with Gesner.
Gesner had then asked the witness to
come to hie room that night at S o'clock,
but Calavan had refused to do bo. saying
tbat it would cause trouble, as the "Gov
ernment boys" knew the movements of
alt of them. Gesner had stated that he
did not wish to bribe him, upon which
the witness had said "of course not." On
cross-examination Mr. Bennett asked Cal
avan if Gesner had not wanted him as a
witness and had not asked him to come
to the room to. tell what he knew about
the case, but the witness stated that he
d4d not remember such a conversation.
Intended to Advance Price.
In the afternoon Henry Hudson enter
tained the court, the Jury and the spec
tators with the story of how he had made
Ma wlH before coming to Portland to
testify before the grand Jury, and of his
pte formed when he filed upon the claim
taken near Prlnevllle to cheat Dr. Gesner
out of the land unless he paid him twice
as much as he had promised.
The morning session opened with TVil
for J. Craln upon the stand, called back
to establish a reason If possible for the
discrepancy between the dates named by
Mm in regard to returning the check to
Gamer which he had received from the
land ofllcc.
Crain had testified that he and Gaylord
had received the check from the Land
Omoe December R. 192. the samp day
anon which they had relinquished. They
Had also returned it to the account of
Dr. Gesner in the bank on the same day.
The date of payment upon the check
showed that It had beon presented at the
bank on December 11. which fact had
been brought out cloarly by the defense.
Gaylord was also recalled for the same
purpose, he having told the same story,
but their memories could not remedy
their mistake.
Repeated Evidence Previously Given
Jefferson D. Evans, the next witness
told about the same story that he has at
the former trials. He had taken a claim
at the suggestion of Dr. Gesner. After
wards the claim had been changed for
another without consulting him or with
out authority, so he said. He did not
know where his claim was to be located,
as he had never beon on It.
Henry Hudson was called a short time,
sifter the opening of the afternoon ses
sion. He stated that he had been a good
friond of all the defendants before the
trial, but did not know what they
thought of him by this time. He said
that he had Intended to sell his claim,
taken at the suggestion of Gesner. for as
much as he could get for it. but that If
he was not able to realize more than $500
he would have sold It to Gesner.
Christian Feuerholm wr thi inf n-if
ness of the day. He had heard that
uesner was ouying land and had asked
him If he would loan money on a claim.
He .had then filed before Biggs, who had
riven him the numbers.
The witness did not remember having
answered any of the questions In the final
proof and said that they must have been
written when he was not there. Gesner
advised him to relinquish and wrote him
a letter telllmr him that thevLnn nm
at The Dalles and Moody, had it in for

Two Day6 After Marrying San Fran
cisco Girl, He Is Arrested at
Request of Sheriff.
Dr. H. E. Floyd, a bridegroom of two
days, a man who ays he was once City
Physician of San Francisco, was ar
rested yesterday afternoon by Detec
tive Vaughn and an assistant on com
plaint of the Sheriff of Humboldt Coun
ty, California, charged with obtaining
money under false pretenses. A warrant
was also served on him by Constable
Lou Wagner for beating a board bill in
San Francisco.
Floyd arrived in Portland a month
ago and Immediately became known to
the police and tne detective depart
ment. He complained at headquarters
that a woman had stolen 575 and a bi
cycle from him and had absconded to
Tacoma, San Francisco or Goble. Wash.
Reciting his great connections with
millionaires of California, claiming that
he would spare no expense to capture
the woman, and Impressing the entire
detective force with his worth he had
them all attending his wants. H was
sent to the District Attorney's office,
and. after his reception, left the office
with the allegation that the District At
torney's assistants were grafters be
cause they had tried to extort money
from him.
On his telling a detective that
through his own efforts he had traced
the stolen articles, the matter was
dropped by the police. Floyd with
grandiloquent air said tnat he was to
be married to a most estimable lady of
San Francisco in a few days, and tnat
a matter of a few dollars was of no
consequence to him as he had been able
to clean up several thousand dollars
since arriving in Portland.
Floyd's marriage to Alice Brooks,
agod SC. a resident of San Francisco.
Is paid to have taken place Sunday.
When asked yesterday If he desired to
see his bride at the City Jail. Floyd
answered that it was not necessary
as he would be out of Jail In a few days.
"I shall neither affirm or deny the
charges that have been brought against
me," said Floyd. "The police claim
to know who I am, and what they say
will, f course, ruin me." A dispatch
from San Francisco, received Inst night.
stated that no such man as Dr. Floyd

Oregon Association Decides to Con
tinue Salesday System.
Members of the Oregon Woolgrowers'
Association met at the American Inn yes
terday and held an Important session, at
which matters of importance were taken
up and discussed. The session was at
tended by representative woolgrowers
from all over the state. President Doug
lass Belts presided.
Action was taken upon the present
stock-ln-translt law. After formal dis
cussion, a resolution was adopted pledg
ing the support of the local organization
to the National body In its effort to get
a law through Congress allowing S6 hours
for stock In transit instead of 2S. It was
held that the 28-hour law works a hard
ship on stockmen and should be remedied.
The question of a sales day for wool
was also discussed at length. It was said
great difficulty has been encountered in
getting growers to hold their wool to get
the very beet price. While several doubt
ed the advantage of this system, it was
the sense of the majority that the market
is kept stronger by a common sales day.
An interesting and instructive paper
was read by J. H. Gwlnn, secretary of
the National Livestock Association, and
formerly secretary of the local organ Iza
tlon. He stated that the outlook for wool.
growers in Oregon has never "been so
bright, and gave much valuable Informa
tion on the conditions of the wool market
and upon the wool industry generally.
Among the prominent woolgrowers in at
tendance were President Douglass Belts,

Testerday morning the Regulator Line
steamer carried a large consignment of
wheel s orapers from Portland that were
unloaded at various landings along the
Columbia between Washougal and White
Salmon, for use of construction gangs
building the new road along the north
bank, over which trains of the Northern

those who witnessed its departure, con
signed to private parties connected with
the various temporary camps that have
already been established along the river.

The first organization to have Its
tanlng In connection with the Tem-
prance Congress to b held In this
city September 19-23 wilt bo the In
dependent Order of Good TetapUra.
This organization has a large mem
bership In foreign parts, noticeably In
Norway and Sweden. It also has con
siderable strength In the Eastern
States, and has a fair membership In
Washington. It Is not strong In Ore
gon, but the outlook Is good for a ma
terial growth In the near future. The
International Supreme Lodge, whloh
met in Belfast. Ireland, August I,
granted to the United States authority
to erect a National grand-lodge. Thla
action Is being received with cheer
by every Good Templar In this coun
try. Heretofore there ,has never been
any provision for a National gather
ing of Good Templars In the United
States. A grand lodge is provided for
for every state, but no National or
ganization. For ten years and more
the Good Templars of this country
have felt the weakness of the situa
tion, and have repeatedly urged the
International Supreme Lodge to rem
edy It, but the latter organization has
been conservative and alow to act.
Now the much longed for boon has
not only been granted, but the con
stitution pro pored by the American
delegates has been adopted with but
few minor changes, and the American
delegates at Belfast have been em
powered to erect a National organiza
tion at once. This move means a
great boom for Good Templary in the
Unlted States.
The - Independent Order of Good
Templars will be represented at the
Temperance Congress by James R.
O'Farrell, grand chler Templar, Or
tlng. Wash-, and Hon. GeorgtrE. Cot
trell. of Seattle, past right worthy
grand councillor of the International
Supreme Lodge, which recently met
at Belfast. Ireland. Mr. Cottrell has
attended- every international council
I alnce 1S93, has crossed the Atlantic
Ocean four times and the continent
23 times in his official connection with
this organization. By profession he
Is a civil engineer. As a citizen he
ia highly esteemed lnvhls.home city.
In 1S90 he was nominee for Mayor
on the Democratic-Populist ticket
against Hnmes, the Republican nom
inee. While not elected, he ran more
than 1000 votes ahead of his ticket.
Other prominent representatives of
this order who will be In attendance
upon the congress are Captain W. C
Dutton. of California; O. W. Blaln. of
Michigan sand Mrs. Mattle Graves, of
land, as has been outlined. Who our prin
cipals are It would not be proper for me
to state. Terminal grounds have been se
cured at Portland adjacent -to the pres
ent terminals of which tho Harrlman in
terest control 60 per cent and the North
ern Pacific 40 per cent. Options are being
closed upon this property and Its pur
chasers will hae fine terminals.
"Recently myself -and associates have
purchased no less than six or eight quar
ter blocks in that section of Portland we
believe will be most benefited by the re
cent developments. Who the principals
are for whom we are acting I am not in
a position to state. I believe that a few
days will see a definite announcement
made by them as to plans. It has been
necessary that the work be done as quiet
ly as possible.
"The. Portland & Seattle Railway Com
pany's proposed road, making a triangu
lar system from Portland to Seattle and
from Portland to Spokane via Wallula
Junction, will open up a rich territory.
It will be of more direct benefit to Port
land than to any other city, and will
probably increase the amount of wheat
hauled there. It will be of Indirect bene
fit to Tacoma and other Puget Sound
cities, however. It may result In still
further benefit to Tacoma by stirring up
opposition Interests so that they will re
taliate by building another railroad Into
Tacoma. I would not be at all surprised
were this to happen."
The point Mr. Baker makes prominent
in his expression, that the company con
templates a new line to Seattle in addition
to that along the north bank of the Co
lumbia, is new. but no reason appears
why an auxiliary company of the North
ern Pacific should parallel the present line
of that company between Portland and
Puget Sound.
Wagon Beds That Will Not Sift, the
Earth on City Pavements
Will Be Required. "
Municipal Judge Cameron has ordered
that every teamster or contractor own
ing; one or more wagons in Portland
must secure wagon beds tha't will not
sift earth In hauling over paved
streets. Failure to comply with this,
which Is backed up by city ordinances,
will meet with severe punishment
henceforth, when proved.
So careless and neglectful have team
sters and contractors become that
Judge Cameron and Deputy City Attor
ney Fitzgerald have found drastic
measures necessary to save the city's
pavements from ruin at their hands.
Shameful conditions exist, it has been
learned by Investigation, all over Port
land as a result of flagrant violations
of this particular ordinance.
Judge Cameron personally inspected
the pavements where teamsters In the
employ of James Riley had been haul
ing; earth from an excavation in the vi
cinity of Holladay. Adams and Pacific
streets. He stated from the bench yes
terday morning that mud from one to
four Inches deep was lying- about, and
that It was plain to be seen that It was
from earth spilled from wagons that
were carrying from the Riley excava
tion. "The trouble lies In the kind of beds
on the wagons," said Judge Cameron.
"Riley admits he uses two-by-four
boards for this purpose, and it is im
possible to arrange these so they will
not act as a sifter. I am going to -demand
that wagonbeds be made so as to
make it Impossible for earth to sift
through. That Is the only moans of sav
Ing the pavements of this city."
Riley's case was continued for a few
days, and he was Instructed to clean
the pavements he littered.
The last case brought by the police
against Tom McGIInn and Ernest John
son. proprietors of the Tuxedo saloon, for
keeplnr open house after hours pre
scribed for closing, was dismissed by
consent of Deptuy City Attorney Fltz
gerald by Judge Cameron. The notorious
establishment having been closed by
action of the liquor license committee of
the City Council, it was thought well to
drop the matter. There Is still a com
plaint charging assault and battery
against McGIInn, Sam Boiler and "John
Doe," brought by Dan Connors. This Is
to be tried later.
J. W. Hemp, caught In a raid on Wong
Chung's opium den In Chinatown, denied
ever using "dope," and made his plea for
mercy so strong, that, with the consent
of Deputy District Attorney Haney,
Judge Cameron let him go. giving him an
opportunity to prove himself true. The
charge hangs over him. and If caught
again, a heavy sentence will follow.
"Why did you get drunk?" asked Judge
Cameron of Tom Morris, an old offender.
"It rained, your honor," Morris re
"Oh, you drank the rainwater, did
you?" asked Judge Cameron.
"No, I drank a little whisky, all right.

Market Men and Bakers Are Care-
Jess, She Says, and Shops Are
Often. Unsanitary.
Mrs. Sarah Evans, the new Market In
spector, has found in her visits to the
meat markets, bakeries and groceries
that all things are not as they should be.
Mrs. Evans has been familiar with the
conditions of the local markets since the
day the women of the School of Domestic;
Science made thelr .first tour of inspection,
and although conditions have been Im
proved to a noticeable degree since then,
she has found that there axe many places
that could not be taken as models of
cleanliness. Market men and bakers are
extremely careless of the condition of
their places of business, according to Mrs.
Evans, while grocers are comparatively
It Is found that many dealers keep two
grades of supplies, one for their richer
customers and the other for the class oC
patrons who regard cheapness as the
first essential. Some of the largest es
tablishments In the main business sec
tion ot the city are the worst offenders.
"There Is one meat market In the very
center of the city," said Mrs. Evans,
"that has no water supply. All water haa
to be carried a block; and It Is naturally
not a very clean establishment, having
no sewerage. In another place I found
the toilet In the meat-cutting room. In
still another market, about which a com
plaint had been sent me, I found a large
box of refuse meat and scraps under one
of the tables. The material lif the box
must have been there a month and It
was extremely offensive.
"My attention was called to an oyster
house In the fashionable part of the city.
Upon investigation I found oysters and
old clothes- piled In heaps In the back
room. On a table there was a bowl of
oysters that had been taken from tha
shells, and mixed with the oystere wera
dirt and scum. Conditions In this place
were generally bad.
"In one meat market I noticed a lot ot
dark-colored meat on a shelf. "What Is
that for?' I asked the proprietor. "Wa
sell that to poor people, he replied. In
another place was a pile of old scraps
which I found upon Inquiry were to ba
disposed of to restaurants. I found upon
Inquiry that this was the case in nu
merous Instances. They keep two grade?
of goods, one for the rich and the other
for the poorer classes, and the supplies
sold the latter are often a menace tff
public health.
"I rarely have trouble on a tour of In
spection. I have visited "5 establishments,
and the proprietors have usually admit
ted me willingly. My work so far has
been confined chiefly io meat markets,
bakeries and groceries. I Intend to in
spect the restaurants next."
