Sheriff Word Takes Hand and
; Finds an Excited Lot
of Patrons.
Jvushibiki, Japanese Commissioner,
Anxious for Opportunity to Ful- -fill
Promise to Satisfy
The members and promoters of the So
ciety . of Japanese Art Admirers arc in
a -worse muddle now than at any time
since the lottery -wheel began to revolve
for when the proprietors of the game ol
chance did not make good their promise
to deliver goods to the value of the pur
chase price of tickets and the ticket hold
ers raised their clarion notes to heaven Jn
one long howl of fake. Sheriff Word woke
up from his Indian Summer nap and cast
the shadow of his mighty hand over the
whole arrangement. As a result several
Japanese who were in charge of the
drawing when the Sheriff and his two
deputies arrived on the scene were ar
rested, and the women present had the
narrowest escape of their lives, only get
ting away after giving their names to
the officers. The raid was extremely sen
sational and until they realized that only
the principals were to be arrested the
women present made things pretty lively
In the vicinity of Twenty-sixth and Thur
man streets.
The arrests were made for violating
the statute prohibiting lotteries of any
character. The penalty for vlolatibn of
this statute Is imprisonment of not less
than six months nor more than one year
In the penitentiary, or from three months
to one year in the County Jail, or a fine
of not less than $100 nor more than 51000.
The statute further provides that all
sums of money or prizes drawn In any
lotterv may be forfeited to the use of
the state, and may be sued for and re
covered in legal action. Under this clause
District Attorney Manning can sue all
purchasers of tickets and recover for the
State of Oregon all prizes won. While it
is hardly probable that such action will
be taken, it may give an idea of the
chances the public takes in attempts to
get more than it's money's worth
Mr. Kushiblkl. the Japanese Commis
sioner, feels that he is In a worse di
imm hrmich the action of the Sheriff,
than any one else, for that officer not
only arrested the men in charge, but
tooTc the book of stubs containing the
record of tickets sold and locked the place
of business up, carrying oil the key in
his official pocket. This prevented the
Commissioner from making good his
statement published in yesterday's Ore
gonian to the effect that he would per
sonally superintend the adjustment of all
difficulties between dissatisfied customers
and the Japanese merchants.
Kusbibikl's Good Intentions.
"As the Sheriff locked the place up I
was not able to keep my word with the
public." he said, "and it puts me in a
very unfavorable light. I am very indig
nant over the trouble the actions of my
countrymen have caused, and it Is still
my intention to make everything all right
lf the city and county officials will allow
me to do so. The men who liave conduct
ed this society are merchants of good
standing in Yokohama and I was at flrnt
Inclined to believe that everything was
straight and that only a few women were
making the fuss.
"Yesterday morning I gathered up an
armful of the packages ready for distri
bution and opened them to satisfy myself
of the value of their contents. I was
chagrined to find that nearly all of them
fell below the dollar valuation claimed
for them, most of them averaging 40 and
E0 cents. I called the merchants to an
accounting and they had many excuses
to make, but readily promised to furnish
the goods for me to keep my word with
the public. I had secured American as
sistants and the adjustment of differences
would have begun tonight but for this
"My attorneys. Piatt & Piatt, have the
matter in their hands, but the Sheriff
would not give them permission to allow
mo to reopen the building and make the
'exchanges at present. What he "will do
in the future I do not know, but I sin
cerely trust he will permit me to keep
my word with the Portland people who
are not satisfied with their drawings."
S. Hayrohi. J. Akawachi and T. Mat
suda were the men arrested yesterday,
and warrants have been Issued for R.
FukagaWa and S. Takata, president -and
secretary of the society. Tiie cases will
be called up before Judge Cameron today.
Will 'Dedicate Mount Tabor Fraternal
Hall Monday.
. Head Consul T. L Boak. of the Wood
men -.of the World, will arrive in Port
land Monday to dedicate the new Fra
ternal building, which has Just been com
pleted on West avenue at Mount Tabor,
by the Mount Tabor Camp. The struct
ure on a small scale is modeled In some
respects after the plan of Multnomah
Camp Hall on East Sixth street. It cost
about $1500. and is a neat-appearing build
ing. Residents of the neighborhood as
sisted the enterprise financially.
After the dedication of this hall which
will take place Monday night. Head Con
sul Boak will go to Eastern Oregon, but
will return to Portland and address a
general open mass meeting in the Tai
lor-street M. E. Church the evening of
November S. On November 9, in the eve
ning he will talk to the memDershlp of
Alblna "and East Side Camps In Hill's
Hall, on Williams avenue and Russell
street. November 10 he -will meet and
address the Woodmen at the hall of
Multnomah Camp on East Sixth and
Alder streets. These last two meetings
will "be for members of the order only.
After finishing his engagements In Port
land Head Consul Boak -will pass
through the Willamette Valley, on the
way to California, stopping and address
ing the members at the larger towns
along the route.
Must Move to Xorth End.
The policy of the Lane administration,
as outlined by Acting Detectives Kay and
Jones. ln the Municipal Court, yesterday
morning. Is to drive all dissolute women
from resorts in South Portland to the
North End district. This was made public
when the cases against men and women
arrested In a raid on a Taylor-street es
tablishment were called. Three of the
women were given until tonight to move,
and -a postponement was taken.
