Prominent Musician Charged
With Embezzlement
of $1569.
Declares St. Paul Fire Marine In
surance Company Knew Ho
Was Embarrassed and
icnt Him the 3Ioney.
Upon a -warrant Issued out of the Mu
nicipal Court at the request ot Gen
eral Manager "W. F.. Zwick. of the
St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance
Company. Local Asent Lauren Pease
was arrested by Headquarters De
tectives Carpenter and Jteslng at his
apartments In the Hobart-Curtis At
2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon on
a charKC of larceny by embezzlement.
The sum statod in the complaint Is
$15G9.r.4. allowed to have been col
lected on pollclos and retained by the
behalf. Mr. Pease declares that the
company knew since last June that
he was financially ombarrassed. and
that with their knowledge and con
sent he used the money collected from
certain policies. He says he was
Klvon no warning of bis arrest, and
states he is not an embezzler in any
sense of the word.
On a charge of larceny "by embezzle
ment, Lauren Pease, prominent ! so
ciety and musical circles in Portland,
was placed under arrest at his apart
ments in the Hobart-Curtis at 2:30
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and taken
to police headquarters by Detectives
t'arpenlcr and Resins. Municipal Judge
Cameron fixed ball'in the sum of $3500,
which was given by sureties before
ufghtfall. General Manager W. F.
Zwicker, of the St. Paul Fire &. Ma
rine Insurance Company, is the com
plainant. The defendant is local agent
of the concern, and it is alleged he has
iipr-roprlated to his own use funds col
lected from policies to the extent of
$1j69.54. He denies the charge.
"1 am not an embezzler," said Mr.
Pease last night. "1 owe the company
approximately the sum named in the
complaint, but they loaned it to me.
Since last June I have been hard
pressed, and they knew it. With their
full knowledge and consent, I used
the funds, and they have never said a
word about It until today, when I was
arrested without a moment's warning.
I guess the people of Portland know me
well enough to believe that I could pay
a sum like that .in pretty short order, if
giicn the opportunity."
Frank Freeman has been retained
as counsel for the defense, and he
stated last night that he will ask for a
continuance of the case until next Mon
day, at which time he will beroady to
enter a plea for his client.
Sensation In Musical Circles.
No such a sensation has been sprung
In Portland for years in society cir
cles and among musical people here
as occurred yesterday when Pease
was arrested. The charge is a felony,
.nd the defendant must prove his in
nocence or spend a time in the peniten
tiary. It is as a man prominent in society
and musical affairs, with a passion for
driving young women about in fine
equipages that Lauren Pease is best
Known in Portland. He has been one of
he most prominent figures in the world
of music here for the past six years.
?n& is noted for his generosity and
fondness for giving banquets to friends
and making a "good fellow" of himself
Singer In City Churches.
Five years ago, Pease succeeded ex
Municipal Judge Hogue as tenor solo
ist at the First Congregational Church,
and later he assumed the same position
at the First Presbyterian Church. Sim
ultaneously, he accommodated the Tem
ple Beth Israel. He finished his term
in those places last June, since which
time he has not held any choir position.
Perhaps the most brilliant affair
Pease ever managed, was a musical he
ga e for Arthur L. Alexander. This ,vas
a year ago, when the latter reached
Portland from' Paris, to. take up his
residence here. This was given at the
Hobart-Curtis, and was a most gor
geous affair. All of the most prom
inent singers in the city were present.
A recent concert at the White Tem
ple, In farewell .for Miss Anne Ditch
burn, who was about to leave for New
York City, was under the management
of Mr. Pease. It was a complete success.
Says Acting Detectives Kay and Jones
"Were Too Hasty.
District Attorney Manning blames Act
ing Detectives Kay and Jones for the
failure of prosecutions In the cases of
three men recently arrested for living
with fallen women, and the officers, in
turn, think they were "Jobbed" by the
state in the matter. Municipal Judge
Cameron hardly knows what to think,
tut he Is of the opinion that some
thing wag wrong at one end of the line.
District Attorney Manning declares
that he did not have personal supervision
over the cases, and also states that Act
ing Detectives Kay and Jones went con
trary to his advice in the matter. He
says he told them they had best make
two or three weeks' investigation into
the cases of the men under consideration
before filing Informations, but instead of
heeding this, they rushed in and there
by spoiled the whole nlan of nrrvprfnrr
That some one is censurable for th
jamentauiy weak cases made out in the
Municlnal Court, is the
opinion in informed circles. Just where
to lay the blame no one seems to know,
but one thing ig certain the dissolute
trio are at liberty still.
3frs. A. J. 3rontgomery Says Man
ners of Parents Guide Children.
Religious training in the home was the
subject of an Interesting paper by Mrs.
A J. Montgomery before the Home Train
ing Association, yesterday afternoon, in
which she urged mothers to neglect no
opportunity to instill seeds of religious
thought into the child mind. Aside from
the actual practice of religious ceremo
nials,, such as family prayers. Mrs. Mont
gomery feels that much depends upon the
manner In which parents approach their
children, and says they should have "real
religion practice in the course of each
day, making it experimental, Instead of
"We must train children to be Chris
tians by example." said Mrs. Montgom
ery. "We must know the Bible thorough
ly and be able to use It. We may use
Christian literature to brighten us up on
the subject, but these helps should never
be used as substitutes.
"You may hire some one to nurse the
children In illness, but the mother or
father must instruct them in right living.
There can be no substitutes. The Sunday
school may be an aid, but it cannot take
the place of the home.
"We are not here to play, to dream, to
drift. We have a work to "do. Some par
ents say they have no time to devote to
such training. As thy days, so shall thy
strength be "
The discussion which followed the pa
per was of unusual interest, and was
participated in by a number of members.
Miss Brooks, entertained the association
by a recitation, and Mrs. William Reld
and Mrs. D. A. Pattullo were appointed
delegates to the State Congress of Moth
ers, which will be held this evening in
the assembly hall of the High School.
Judge George. Mrs. C M. Wood and Mrs.
B. H. Trumbull will be the speakers at
this meeting, to which the public Is cor
dially Invited.
Ios Angeles to Be the Home of a
, Permanent Information Bu
reau for Advertisement.
A permanent Oregon Information bu
reau in Los Angeles will be established
If the plans are carried out which wore
adopted at a meeting of the oxecutivo
committee of the Portland Board of Trade
held yesterday afternoon. Such a bureau
would maintain headquarters in that city,
where printed matter about Portland and
the state would be distributed among the
hundreds of home-seekers that arrive in
California each year, especially while the
colonists" rates are In force.
The Board of Trade Is willing to co
operate with the other commercial organ
izations of the city in raising funds to
defray the expense of keeping a bureau
of this character. The executive com
mittee recommended that it be placed in
charge of J. G. Carroll, who has ben
very successful In a work of similar char
acter In connection with the Lewis and
Clark information bureau in San Fran
cisco. The executive committee also decided
to Issue a book entitled "Industrial Port
land," to be used in advertising the city.
It will contain approximately 200 pages of
cuts and descriptive matter. P. W. Cus
ter, B. Lee Paget and Seneca Smith were
appointed a committee to collect data
and arrange for Its publication.
John Crawford. Jr., was elected to
membership on the executive committee
to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of L. A. Greenley. Two new mem
bers were received into the organization,
H. M. Cake and L. Samuel.
The following self-explanatory resolu
tion was adopted and forwarded to Peter
de B. Rossi, the representative of the Ital
ian government In Portland:
"Resolved, That the Portland Board of
Trade heartily recommends appropriate
recognition by Congress of the Mliano
Exposition, to be held in 1905. Italy's
creditable participation in the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, and her recognition of
every American exposition should be re
ciprocated by generous American partici
pation in the Milano Exposition from May
1 to October 30."
Large Audience Hears Programme
at St. Helen's Hall.
It has been truly said that "Muslchath
charms," and if this ever were true it
was last night. Harmony in all its ex
quisite beauty, used as a powerful de
scriptive medium, was listened to by a
spellbound audience at the recital at St.
Helen's Hall. The attendance was large,
the spacious study room of the Hall be
ing crowded to its limit.
To Judge from the genuine pleasure de
picted on every face and recalling the
fact that the recital was classical to the
most literal meaning of the word It may
be said that the listeners were of high
educational understanding, evincing their
approbation in repeated applause. Too
much praise cannot be given Miss Snook,
who rendered all parts of the vocal re
cital, and Miss Gheen, who gave the de
scriptive recital of the opera "Faust."
In the latter particularly much appre
ciation was shown because of the inter
esting explanatory remarks of Miss
Gheen throughout the rendition of the
piece. It was a musically educational
concert and more of its character are
expectantly looked forward to.
Body of Noted Portland Citizen
Reduced to Ashes.
ington, Oct. 26. Funeral services
were held in this city this morning
over the remains of Robert W. Mitch
ell, of Portland, who died last Mon
day at Bedford City, Va. Mr. Mitch

ment, Mr. Mitchell failed to recover,
but steadily declined. His death was
not unexpected. Mr. Mitchell's re
mains were cremated.
Countcrfeit Dollar Passed.
Mrs. Labelle -Carmen, who during the
Exposition has become familiar to the
eyes of many Portland people as the
snake charmer at the animal show on
the Trail, was taken to the Upshur street
station yesterday under suspicion of hav
ing passed a bogus silver dollar. The
woman had sent a boy, Ernest Conley.
to buy cigarettes with the money and
the clerk notified the police that a bad
coin had been given him.
Mrs. Carmen was found at her home,
SC4 Upshur street, and at -the station
stated that she had received the counter
feit In change at the ticket office of the
Grand Theatre. She held to the story
and was allowed to go while the secret
service men are investigating the his
tory of the money. The coin was a very
poor lead imitation of the real thing,
bearing the date of 1S70.

Claim George Antone Did Not
List AN Property.
Attorneys Appear to Oppose His Dis
charge In Bankruptcy and Say
Certain Creditors Had
Undue Preference.
A protest against the discharge in
bankruptcy of George Antone, was filed
yesterday in the United States District
Court by Emmons & Emmons and W. H.
Fowler, attorneys appearing for Stein,
Lauer. Shohl & Co., John McCann & Co..
J. Hague & Co.. Elmwood Mills, Rose
Bros. & Co., and numerous other cred-
itors. of Antone. who charge him with
fraud. Antone was engaged in the mer
cantile business on First street noar Oak,
and filed a petition In bankruptcy on Jan
uary 20. '1904.
The petition protesting against his dis
charge sets forth that he concealed the
fact that S. J. Baseol of Chinook, was
Indebted to him in the sum of 12200. An
tone, It is alleged, owed Mike Shar Jf-00.
and to prevent Shar from opposing his
discharge In bankruptcy, caused Baseel
to pay Shar, Baseel. it is asserted, also
paid 11000 to Mike Ellis, a relative of
Antone, It Is alleged further that Antone
was Indebted to Mrs. M. Baseel In the
sum of 1700 and that to prevent hor from
contesting his discharge in bankruptcy.

J. and A. Ablan for the alleged consid
eration of 13250: Other like transactions
of a fraudulent character are said to
have occurred.
"Waterfront Lot In Dispute and Its
Existence Denied.
Carrier M. Elwert. who owns lot 5.
block 2, East Portland, at the foot of
East Washington street, filed suit In the
State Circuit Court yesterday against H.
E. Noble and J. Olson, to have determined
her right to the water-frontage. Mr.
Noble, representing P. H. Marlay as at
torney In fact, holds a tax deed to what
Is described as lot 4, block 2, which he
contends is on the river front, and not
lot 5. U. S. G. Marquam, attorney for
Miss Elwert, contends that years ago A.
H. Johnson brought suit against A. J.
Knott, who 'was then the owner of lot 5,
to determine the question of the frontage,
and the Supreme Court decided that there
is no property between lot 5 and the river.
Mr. Marquam asserts that the Noble
claim of ownership of land between lot 3
and the high-water mark of the river is
without foundation, and that there is no
such property as lot 4. The attorney
states further that Noble secured a deed
from William M. Ladd, the administrator
of the estate of A. H. Johnson, and
trustee under a trust deed covering the
supposed lot 4, for a consideration of
about 130). Miss Elwert desires to build,
and wants the use of the river. Hor title
descends from Knott. The controversy
promises to be a most Interesting one.

and money. The' will was admitted to
probate in the County Court yesterday.

the will in April last, at the request of

A decision has been reached by John F.
Logan, representing Thomas E. Hulme.
City Plumbing Inspector, who was re
moved by Mayor Lane, with the assist
ance of Policeman John Qulnton. as to
the stipulations which R. W. Montague,
attorney appearing in the Interest of the
Mayor, will present to the State Circuit
Court in a case to have the question of
the right of Hulme to the office deter
mined. The stipulations may be filed in
the State Circuit Court today. Hulme
contends that he holds the title to the
office by appointment of the City Coun
cil, which a month ago passed an ordi-
nance to that effect. The Mayor disputes
this, and also Mr. Montague, and say the
Mayors' appointee holds the place legally.

her frequently and -blacked her eyes and
she called witnesses who saw her when
her optics were discolored and her body

dancing with another woman and said
she did so because he called her a vile

the time. Regarding her associations
with a man named Smith In the Krlbs

Mrs. Laisner said she furnished nearly
all the money that went Into their home

3Iayor May Call Special Council
Meeting: for Purpose.
In alf probability Admiral Goodrich
will be accorded a public reception cf
some sort by the municipality when
tne nagship Chicago comes Into port
next week, as Mayor Lane now has the
matter under consideration. Council
man Beldlng broached th subject to
the Mayor yesterday, 'and the chances
are a special meeting of the Clty
Councll will be called to make proper
arrangements, as the cruiser will get
here before the regular meeting of the
It will be remembered that upon tho
occasion of the Admiral's previous
visit here, during the Fair, arrange
ments were made by the Council for
a grand public demonstration In his
honor, but he was obliged to sail un
expectedly without having an oppor
tunity to enjoy the projected function.
and his sudden departure led to a
great deal of criticism. It is thought
the Admiral's presence here at this
time is in a measure for the purpose
of showing that he was not actuated
by any unfriendly feeling when he
went away so hilrriedly.
But It 3Iiw Proven of Interest and
Vnlnn to Thousands.
Common sense would suggest that If one
wishes to become fleshy and plump It can
only result from the food we eat and di
gest, and that food should be albuminous
or flesh-forming food, like eggs, beef
steak and cereals: In other words, the
kinds of food that make flesh are the
foods which form the greater part of our
dally bills of fare.
But the trouble Is, that while we eat
enough and generally too much,, tho
stomach, from abuse and overwork, does
not properly digest and assimilate It,
which Is the reason so many people re
main thin and under weight; the digestive
organs do not completely digest the flesh
forming beefsteak, eggs and similar
wholesome food.
There are thousands of such who ar5
really confirmed dyspeptics, although they
may fiave no particular pain or Inconve
nience from their stomachs.
If such persons' would lay their preju
dices aside and make a regular practice
ot taking, after each meal, one or two of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, the food
would be quickly and thoroughly digested,
because these tablets contain the natural
