Trial of Accused Officer Goes
On Behind Closed
Attempt or the Gsptain to Take Pos
session of Mrs. "Mack's "State
room on the Transport
Sheridan the Cause.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Sept. 2L (Spe
cial.) While the court-martial of Cap
tain A. P. Berry, which Is being held be
hind closed doora at the officers quarters
at Vancouver Barracks, does not promise
as lively a scandal as that which the
Captain Taggart trial savo to the world,
nevertheless enough ol It Is coming out
of the star-chamber sessions that are be
ing held to warrant the belief that there
Is more behind the court-martial of Cap
tain Berry than has appoared in print.
Factional lines have been drawn ever
since the affair on the transport Sheri
dan, when Captain Berry attempted to
take possession of Mrs. Mack's stateroom.
Since the court-martial of Captain Berry
was ordered, these lines have dally grown
more taut, and now friends of both par
ties are lined up against each other. While
thore may be none of the noisome details
connected with the Taggart case brought
oat In the Berry trial, and while a lot of
stff that is brought before the trial board
f officers may never appear In public
prints, one thing Is sure, the case, when
it Is through, will involve more than
Captain Berry.
Mori: Than Is Divulged.
That the case has more behind It than
two mere trial of Captain Berry Is In a
moasurc proved by the studied reluctance
on the part of the rank and file to discuss
the case. There are many officers and
enlisted men at Vancouver who were on
the transport Sheridan when Captain Ber
ry attempted to take possession of Mrs.
Mack's cabin. They are fully cognizant
of the other scandals resulting from this,
but not one will discuss It. When an offi
cer Is led up to remarking about the case,
beyond calling It a "dirty, bitter case" he
will not venture. Captain Berry's friends
are almost open In their charge that there
Is a conspiracy on foot to injure Captain
Berry's standing In the Army.
Case of Lieutenant Hamilton.
Some time ago Lieutenant Louis M.
Hamilton, of the Tenth Infantry, was
court-martialed and tried behind closed
doors. Just as the Berry trial is being
conducted, and It Is rumored that Lieuten
ant Hamilton's trial, and sentence, what
ever It will bo when the papers are re
turned, was the result of charges growing
out of the Berry case. It was hinted
very broadly today that this is not the
only officer who will be confronted by a
court-martial before the Berry case Is settled.
Pioneer Passes Away at the Age of
Seventy-Eight Years.
Gustaf Wilson, one of the oldest
pioneers of the state, passed away yes
terday morning at the Good Samaritan
Hospital at the age of 78 years. The
direct cause of his death was the re
sult of ailments common to old age.
He had been ailing since June 1, and
was taken to the hospital on the 4th
of August.
Mr. Wilson was born at the town of
Uloaborg. in Northern Finland, In the
year 1S27, and came to America when
he was 15 years of age, having shipped
on a sailing vessel. He deserted this
ship and sailed on the ship Albania
for San Francisco. He remained In
California but a short time, when he
located in Oregon, choosing Josephine
County as his home. He resided In
that part of the state for several years,
during which tlVne he was active In
politics, having been chosen to several
responsible offices In 1853 he enlisted
In the army, and served through the
early Indian troubles In the state.
After the wars he came to Portland,
and, recognizing the Importance of
this locality, he located In the then
budding town. For several years ho
was Russian Vice-Consul In Portland.
Gustaf Wilson was a S2d degree
Mason, and a member of the grand
lodge for several years, and his fu
neral will be held under the direction
of that order.
Before his Illness the deceased made
his home at the residence of C F. Pear
son, of 615 Marshall street. He leaves
an adopted daughter. Miss Alice E.
Wilson, who Is the only relative In
this country. He married Mrs. Chris
tine Wldenn in 1871, and survived her
several years. The funeral will be
held Saturday from the Scottish Rite
Three Propositions "Will Go Before
St. Johns Council'.
Three companies are asking for a fran
chise, to operate a ferry across the Wil
lamette River at St. Johns J. Brink, the
St. Johns Navigation & Development Com
pany and a company represented by some
young men of SL Johns. Tuesday Coun
cilman Lcggett, Llnqulst and Shields made
an Inspection of possible landings on both
sides of the river. On the West Side
Blumauer & Hawks, who run the road
house, will provide a landing for a ferry
as they are anxious to see a ferry In op
eration. The Council committee will re
port at the next regular meeting. Mr.
Brink offers to put In operation Im
mediately a 150-ton ferry boat. T. T.
Parker, representing the SL Johns Navi
gation & Development Company, offers
to put on & 50-ton ferry boat within 60
days after being granted a franchise. He
has not yet divulged the names of the
men who compose this company, further
than to say they are SL Johns citizens.
The third proposition has not yet been
submitted to the Council, but will be ready
at the next regular meeting." This latter'
company will offer to pay for a franchise,
and no doubt the other two companies
will make the same offer.
Mr. C Rcbagllati will give instruction
on the guitar and mandolin at the T. M.
C. A. night school on Wednesday and
Saturday evenings, beginning next week
