W. W. Cotton Claims Illegality
. of Action of North-Bank
QUESTIONS ITS BUSINESS
Contest for Right or Way at Maeclv
Junction Brings Up Interesting
Contention in Judge
The contention of the O. R. & N. Co.
that the Portland & Seattle Railway Com
pany, not having complied with the laws
of Oregon has no right to do business in
this state was stubbornly contested in
Judge Frazer's court yesterday, and there
was an abundance of fireworks, while the
arguments between W. W. Cotton and
Arthur C. Spencer, counsel for the O. R.
& X. Co.. and Charles H. Carey, of Port
land, and James B. Kerr, attorneys for
the Portland & Seattle Company, were in
progress. The legal battle between the
Harriman and Hill forces began over the
question of preference concerning the
crossing at Maegly Junction, which was
supposed in the beginning not to be a
very serious matter, but as the litigation
has continued it has become plainly evi
dent tljat the differences between the op
posing forces are not confined entirely to
a Junction fight, and that the Harriman
people would be much pleased if they
could keep the north-bank line out of.
Portland or from building at all.
Mr. Cotton started yesterday morning
by showing that when J. Couch Flanders
was appointed attorney-in-fact for the
Portland & Seattle Company in Oregon
a meeting was held in Portland on Octo
ber 10. 1903. at which Charles M. Levey.
J. Couch Flanders and C. F. Adams, three
of the members of the board of directors,
were present, and the other two, John S.
Baker and L. C. Gilman. were not pres
ent and were not notified of the meeting.
Mr. Cotton asserted that a meeting of a
corporation in Portland which was or
ganized in the State of Washington was
Secretary Martin a Witness.
M. O. Martin, the secretary of the Port
land & Seattle Company, testified that he
was not present at the meeting. He stated
that he sent the corporate seal to Charles
M. Levey, the president of the company,
in Portland. Mr. Cotton said that the
laws of Washington made the secretary
of the corporation the custodian of its
corporate seal, and the president could
not use it. Mr. Martin admitted, and also
Mr. Carey, that the minute "book of the
Portland "& Seattle Company contained
no resolution authorizing the president to
use the corporate seal, and there was
nothing in the by-laws of the company to
Mr. Cotton argued, therefore, that the
commission of Mr. Flanders was void, and
all acts performed under it. and that the
Portland & Seattle Company had no
standing in court.
"They had no power of attorney, no
power to build a railroad, no power to do
anything in this state." said Mr. Cotton.
"The only power of attorney ever filed
here was an attempted action taken by
three directors in Portland, and corporate
acts cannot be done Outside of the state
in which the company was incorporated."
J. Couch Flanders told of the meeting of
October 10, under Mr. Cotton's question
ing, and then on cross-examination by Mr.
Carey told how he had been named as attorney-in-fact
for the road, and had for
warded the declaration of intention of the
road and a certified copy of the articles of
incorporation to the Secretary of State. In
return he had received a certificate of
authority to do business In the State of
Mr. Cotton brought out the fact that
the certified copy of the articles of incor
poration filed with the Secretary of State
at Salem were not certified to by Mr.
Martin, secretary of the Portland & Seat
tle Company, and did not contain the cor
porate seal of the company. Mr. Carey
stated that the articles filed at Salem
were certified to by the -Secretary of the
State .of Washington as a correct copy,
and this was all that was necessary, but
Mr. Cotton would not admit it.
James B. Kerr's Statement.
James B. Kerr's attorney, who is also
the assistant secretary of the Portland &
Seattle Railway Company, while on the
witness-stand admitted that L. C. Gil
man, S. B. Linthlcum. Charles M. Levey
and .J. Couch Flanders, directors of the
company, held a meeting at Vancouver,
Wash., on Monday, and a resolution was
adopted Indorsing the action of Mr. Levey
in using the corporate seal, and the
meeting of October 10. but Mr. Cotton
took the position that an Illegal act could
not bo Indorsed.
After a long legal argument Mr.
Flanders was permitted to testify sub
ject to objection by Mr. Cotton that
Mr. Levey, president of the Portland &
Seattle Company, acted "for the com
pany independent of the board of di
rectors in the approval of land pur
chases and the location of the line' ana
many other things.
Mr. Carey stated different times that
llr. Levey held nearly all of the stock
except a few shares, and that the cor
poration acquiesced in -what Mr. Levey
Turning to the record' book of the
Portland & Seattle Company -which
was in court at the Tequest of the O.
R. & IC. Co.. Mr. Cotton read -where at
a meeting of the board of directors of
, the Portland & Seattle Company, Mr.
Levey had been authorized by resolu
tion to purchase two steamboats from
the Northern Pacific Company for the
Portland &, Seattle Company. This
caused Mr. Cotton to remark In sarcastic
tones that this contradicted the evidence
of Mr. Flanders that Mr. Levey was
autnorizea to act independently of the
board of directors, and said it appeared
Mr. Levey could not even buy a couple
of steamboats from his emnlover. the
Northern Pacific Company, the parent
corporation, without authority by reso

Mr. Cotton remarked that it seemed Mr.
Levey wore a collar like himself and
others engaged by corporations. Mr.
Cotton asked that the Portland & Seattle
records be copied and placed In evidence.

tion, and talked -ab'out the nerve of the
O. R. & N. in wanting the records of the

swered that he did not want to see any
thing, and that Mr. Sholes. the official
court reporter, could do the copying, and
Judge Frazer could seal the copies and
put them away In his private safe and
keep them there until .it was known If
they were required In the Supreme Court.'
Mr. Carey still objected, and said lie

a set of books in a store on Washington
street, which he was In the habit of fre
quenting, was sentenced to an indetermi

Frazer yesterday. Richardson pleaded
guilty and asked to be paroled, but the
court refused the request upon ascertain

manager of the Union Pacific, who was
formerly general manager of the O. R. &

"honor at a banquet given by the commer

night. The banquet was stated by the
Omaha papers to be perhaps the most
elaborate function of the kind ever given

of esteem and as a means of formally
welcoming Mr. Mohler to the city as the
resident head of what is perhaps the
greatest corporation In Omaha.

REASON FOB ARREST
Why Detective Murphy Was
Angry at Connolly.
ASKED HIS VOTE FOR LANE
When Connolly Itcfuscd to Give Ills
Promise the Detective Takes Him
Into Custody, Swears
the Accused Man.
A sensation was sprung in the Mu
nicipal Court yesterday morning, when
William E. Connolly, clerk in tho store
of Robinson & Co.. swore on the wit
ness aland that Detective Murphy In
vited him into a saloon at midnight
Monday, asked him to vote for Cham
berlain for Governor, and when he re
fused. Murphy placed him under arrest
on a "lwrge of using profane and abu
sive language, and declared he would
run Connolly out of Portland.
Detective Murphy denied Connolly's
statement, but became so confused
while on the stand that it was evident
he was attempting to avoid tolling the
whole truth concerning the scandal,
and in order to give Connolly time in
which to bring witnesses. Judge Cam
eron continued the case until this

Yamhill streets. It was exactly 12:30.
he said. Connolly came along, they
went into a saloon together and while
Inside, got to joshing.
"Connolly called me a lot of names
and used very Insulting language while
we were in the saloon," said Detoctlve
Murphy, "but I went outside, paying
no attention to his abuse. I have known
him a long time, and thought he was a
pretty good 'Josher. When he came out

Mrs. Albert C. Sheldon Tells of Life as Student Abroad Declines Offer of London Manager
THERE'S something about America,

that makes the native-born always
glad to call It home., and to come back
to after foreign travel. Mrs. Albert C. Shel
don, who returned to Portland yesterday
morning, after 15 months in Paris and
Berlin, is no exception to this rule, and
says that while Paris, Berlin and London
were all delightful cities in which to so
journ, and there Is an Indescribable charm
about Europe In general, she is glad that
she Is an American and an Orcgonlan.
Mrs. Sheldon shows no traces of the
long term of hard study she has Just ex
perienced. She is as fresh and enthusias
tic as though she had been on an outing
to the seashore, and has surely visited
the eternal fountain during her absence.
But she has put In many hours daily at
music and the languages, and has come
back with something to show for it. "I
went to Europe with definite alms." she
says. "and-I feel satisfied that I got what
I went for.
"I was particularly fortunate in my
choice of vocal teachers," she said. "I
heard a pupil of Jacques Bouhy sing, and
that settled the matter of whom I should
study with. I became a student under
him imnledlately. and never have I had
such a delightful experience as my long
term with him. There is no one who
compares with him In French repertoire,
and I cannot tell you the great amount
of good my study did me. T had the dis
tinction of being the oniy pupil selected
to accompany him to Spa. which of
course. I felt was quite a feather in my
cap. AH the while I studied French dic
tion, and in addition to my music I took
lessons in German. French and Italian.
"I studied with Charles W. Clark for a
short time before going to Berlin. He is
the American who has such a following
in Paris, you know. In preparing for
Berlin I intended to study under Lillian
Lehmann, but, finding her fully engaged.
I became a pupil of Frau Nclsen Stone
Instead. And then came my best experi
enceto study with Lampertl! That alone
was worth my trip, for he Is the greatest
Italian teacher of the age. He Insisted
on making a coloratura of me, but I feel

"Why don't you tell all of the story?" .
queried Connolly, when Detective Mur
phy stopped talking, and Deputy City
Attorney Fitzgerald rested the case.
Murphy flushed, but made no reply.
"Why don't you tell all there Is
about the case?" demanded Connolly.
"Why don't you tell where you met me
before w went Into the saloon and
what caused the trouble?"
"I did not charge you with anything
while we were In the saloon." an
swered Detective Murphy. "It's only
what took place outside."
"You can tell It yourself." said Judge
Cameron to Connolly.
"Detective Murphy met me outside
tne Uoon and invited me to go In and
take a drink." swore Connolly. "When
we got Inside, he said: "Well. I suppose
you are RoIuk to vote for Chamberlain
for Governor. and for Lane and the
other Democrats? I replied emphati
cally that I was not. "Then, damn
you, I'll run you out of town,' replied
Murphy. I then abused him. If you call
it abuse, hy replying. 'You couldn't run
a letter out of town, with u stamp on
It. He got mad and arrested me."
Detective Murphy Is a strong Demo
crat, and It is supposed he secured his
position on the force because of this.
He denied making any political sug
gestions to Connolly. It Is a strict rule
of the department that members shall
not discuss politics. Further develop
ments are looked for In the case.

RIGHT OF OFFICER
Saloonkeeper Questions Au
thority to Enter His Place.
COURT INFORMS CULPRIT
At the Same Time It Finds Him
Guilty for Permitting a Minor
to Enter His Saloon.
Other Cnscs Up.
"Can an officer come Into my saloon
whenever he wants to when I do not'
want hlra?" asked Gust Karschman. pro
prietor of a liquor dispensary at 52
North Twenty-fourth street, of Municipal
Judge Cameron yesterday morning, when
he was before the court on a charge of
permitting a minor to enter his establish
ment. "Yes. sir: he certainly can." replied
"Yes. It would be a fine proposition if
an officer could not enter your saloon In !
the same manner any ordinary citizen '
could." commented Deputy City Attorney j
Farschinan was before the court this j
time because he permitted Ben Gross, a J
minor, to enter the saloon, but. as It j
was shown by the lad himself and by his j
mother that she sent him there to get a '
check cashed. Judge Cameron found him j
guilty and suspended sentence, warning
him to keep all minors out of the estab- ;
llshment In future.
Karschman was arrested this time by .
Patrolman Gcstafson. who saw tne do
enter the saloon, and went In after him.
While the ofneer was within he had some
words with the proprietor, who ordered
him out. saying that when he wanted a

events the best talent obtainable is en
gaged. Mr. Sharp Is the manager
through whom all uch contracts arc
made and he Is constantly on the look
out .for fresh and artistic voices. Mrs.
Sheldon, however, felt that she had S
been away from home as long as she
cared to stay, and refused his offer,
half promising to return another sea
son. Just what she will do the coming
year she has not determined. Already
friends are urging a recital, and It is
barely possible that she may do recital
nnd concert work In various cities on
the Coast. But whatever she decides
upon, those who have an opportunity
to hear Mrs. Sheldon sing- In the mean
while will have a rare treat.
Americans who live In Paris natur
ally form a clique, and Mrs. Sheldon
made many charming acquaintances
among artists, students and tourists.
"They soon' learned that I had an
American maid with me." she laughed,
"and my little apartment became head
