such as. "Hiawatha" or 'Under the
Bamboo Tree," and" Mrs. Dearing, on
her own Judgment, chose the tune of
"Mr. Dooley" as more suitable. . She
stated that her husband, J. W. Dearing,
who was then an agent for the com
nanv. irave "her material proper to use.
and 'she wrote the song twice before it
pleased her and fitted tne tune. Itw
reason she was asked to write the
song was because she ljadprevlously
pdmnosed a niece .of poetry at the time
of a visit to Portland of Vice-President
Tupper of the company, which met
with his commendation. Her husband
corroborated her testimony.
A denosltion of Mr. Clausen was
read, in which he admitted that the
song was sung at Los Angeles and
other daces at which the convention
lias been in session and made a hit. He
stated that he supplied Mrs. Dearing
with Ideas, and did not promise to pay
Mrs. Dearing anything. He considered
it an evidence of good fellowship on
iher part and that of -iier husband, and
did not think the song advertised the
company any. A few copies were jjlven
to policy holders.
Frank Freeman, attorney for Mrs
Dearing, Introduced a copy of the L.os
Angel03 Herald showing publication
of a portion of the song and chorus.
The song contains numerous choruses.
Mr. Dearing, It was shown, did not
attend the convention.
C. F. Easter and other witnesses tes
tified that the song served to arouse
the convention and wake the boys up.
There was also evidence that on one
occasion Mr. Clausen stated that Mrs,
Dearing ought to receive remuneration
either from the company or the agents.
and he would take the matter up.
J. H. Keating, a song writer of note.
Testified that he would cnarge pronaoiy
S500 to 51.000. for a song for advertis

work, and received royalties on his

G. A. Du Uette Sues for Return of
Price Paid for Stock.
G. A. Du Rctte. who invested tlSM in
stock in the Pacific Mail Order Company
on November SO, 1904, wants his money
back. He purchased 15 shares, and under
his contract alleges that he is entitled to
receive par value, which is $1500. Du
Retto was engaged In raising hops near
Fairfield, Marlon County, and avers that
he was induced to purchase the stock by
J. TL Greenfield, president of the com
pany. He says he was promised a posl
tlon in the company's store at a salary of
$60 a month, to be Increased to $75 at the
expiration of a year. If Jio was dis
charged his stock was to be redeemed
and he was not to quit of his own voli

2, 1905, by George L. Rees, vice-president
of the company. Ho sued the company
for $1500, and the trial of the case was
begun yesterday in Judge Sears' court.
Du Rctte testified tliat ho was induced
to go on a vacation for a month and
that he had a written agreement to be
given, work upon his return. The day
after he went back to work he said Mr.
Rees discharged him by telling him ho

CALLED TO TRY HIMSELF.
James Anderson, Defendant, Goes to
-James Anderson; proprietor tjf tho
Union House, had the novel experience
yesterday of being called as a juror lh
a case in which he was the defendant.
Such a thing never occurred before in
the' history of legal practice in this city,
arid perhaps in no other place. It "hap
pened 'because Mr. Anderson Is a mem
ber of the regular panel of jurors in the
State Circuit Court this term. In calling
.the names of jurors. Clerk Bamford called
tho name of Mr. Anderson, and he took
his seat with the other jurors, having
been previously advised to do so by his
attorney, George S. Shepherd. Mr. Shep
herd appreciates a little humor, and when
asked by Judge George where the de
fendant was, drily answered that he
would bo in his proper place shortly. Mr.
Shepherd then proceeded to examine Mr.
Anderson touching his qualifications to
serve as a juror in the case. He asked
him how long he had lived in Portland,
and if he knew anything about the case.
In answer to tho latter inquiry, Mr. An
derson said he knew a whole lot about
the case. Mr. Shepherd then informed
Deputy District Attorney Bert Haney,
who, together with Charles J. Schnabcl.
was engaged in prosecuting the case, that
Mr. Anderson the juror and Mr. Ander
son the defendant were one, and Mr. An
derson was excused from serving as a.
juror to try himself. He Is, however, en
titled to receive the usual fee of $2 for
one day's attendance as a juror. The
spectators laughed, and Judge George
smiled broadly at the incident.
Mr. Anderson was accused of assault
and battery on E. F. Gray, a cook in
his employ. He was convicted in the
Municipal Court and appealed the case.
He struck Gray with a scoop shovel,
breaking his arm. The excuse offered
by Anderson was that Gray had been
drinking and assaulted "him with a carv-
ing-knife. He said he narrowly escaped
being- stabbed- anS killed. Several -wit
nesses were examined and the jury de
cided the preponderance of testimony was
against Anderson and returned a verdict
of guilty, with a recommendation of
Mr. Shepherd also attracted attention
by excusing Juror Reb C. Beuchler, with
the remark Uiat he doubtless believed
in the doctrine if ho was smote upon one
cheek of turning the other to the assail

ASK FOR SANATORIA.
Members of the Board of Health on
A strong effort will be made by the
Board of Health, assisted by the public.
to obtain State support for the establish
ment of open air sanatoria in Oregon at
the coming session of the Legislature. A
special meeting of the State board was
held yesterday afternoon In the offices
of Dr. R. C. Tenny to discuss the ad
visability of this action, and it was the
unanimous opinion of the physicians
present that such a step should be taken,
not only to benefit the many patients
who are unable to afford the necessary
treatment in private institutions, but to
protect those whose health Is constantly
menaced by the presence of tubercular pa
tients in public.
A committee composed of Dr. C. J.
Smith, Dr. A. C Smith and Dr. E. A.
Pierce was appointed to. formulate some
plan for presenting the matter to the
people and eventually to the Legislature
The next meeting of the board will be
in April at Astoria, and at that time
this committee will make Its report, and
an active campaign will commence. The
physicians of Portland do not favor one
big sanatorium to be built at great ex
pense and maintained by the. State, but
two or three open-air camps, like the one
now in operation near Mllwaukle. These
are Inexpensive, the principal item being
the food. It is realized that any tuber
cular patient can sleep and live in the
open air without going to a sanatorium,
but they are not educated in caring for
themselves properly, and many are not
able to purchase the fresh eggs, juicy
beef and rich milk with which they are
Visit the Sanatorium.
Before the meeting of the State board
several of its members, accompanied by
tho executive board of the Portland Open
Air Sanatorium, visited that institution
for the purpose of a thorough inspection
of its methods, and the result of the
treatment. The party went out early
yesterday morning and .spent several
hours at the sanatorium.
Dr. E. A. Pierce, the physician in
charge, met the party at the car, and
Miss McNamara, the matron, greeted
them on arrival at the beautiful spot on
the river bank, where 19 patients are now
recovering from the dreaded white
plague. Nearly all the patients were
sitting out in tho sun. without wraps,
and their tent homes were wide open to
the brecses. The place looks like a big
camp established for a summer outing,
and everything was as Fpic and span as
the woods in their natural state would
Favor State Assistance.
A. L. Mills and I. X. Flcischner, of the
local board, are both In favor or the
establishment of at least two more such
sanatoria at State expense as a pro
tective measure. "That there are many
peoplb suffering with tuberculosis who
cannot afford the dlcl we give them
here, and who do not know how to tako
care of themselves Is beyond question."
said the former. "Such institutions as'
this are not expensive, and I deem them
more beneficial than large buildings
erected at great cost to the public."
Mr. Flelscbner expressed himself in
similar vein, welling especially upon the
great protection' of such institutions to
the public at large. "Consumption is
one of tho greatest plagues on earth." he
said, "and its prevalence Is alarming.
Tho only way to eliminate the danger of
contagion is to isolate those afflicted and
teach them to prevent the spread of
In commenting upon the manner in
which the sputum is destroyed at the san
atorium. Dr. Andrew Smith said: "If the
whole town could be made to exercise
this caution, there would be no necessity
for such places as these." No one 1b al
lowed to expectorate on the ground at
the Mllwaukle resort, and fire is used
to prevent the escape of germs.
Dr. A. J. Smith, of Pendleton, and Dr.
E. B. Pickle, of Medford. were out of
town physicians who visited the sana
torium and attended, the State board
meeting later. The board favors Stato
support for the present sanatorium and
the establishment of branches In South
em and Eastern Oregon.

Captains of these boats had nerve to
take a small risk. As soon a the
wires were fixed the tugs were noti

passengers, but they would not respond
to suggestions to go to sea.
The following excerpts from the let
tcr arc self-explanatory:
The Government line went down the same
night Monday night that the Valencia
was wrecked. The line was down until
Wednesday noon. The trouble wo caused
by breaks, mostly on the Crescent and
Fysht sections. 1 am rure everything with
in human power was done to renew com
munication with the least possible delay.
As soon as communication was restored
Wednesday noon the Xeah Bay operator was
told to Inform the tugs there of the wreck-
The tugboat captains refused to go without
orders from their Seattle office. Th Seattle
-office of the tug company was Informed Im
mediately of the resumption of comraunl
cation with Tatoorh and Neah Bay, but it
was 22 hours later before anything waa
done by the Seattle tug office to order their
tugs to the scene ot the wreck.
The first news of the wreck reached this
office Rt 4 V. M. on the 23d. and knowing
that the line to Mean Bay was down, I urged
the captain of the tug Wallowa, anchored
in Crescent Bay. to go to the wreck. He
was a stranger to that locality, and did not
care to risk his boat. If this tug had gov
it would have been the flrrt to the scene ot
the wreck, as It was several hours after this
that any relief boats left Victoria.
It Is unfortunate that the wire to Neah
Bay was down, but I am sure, considering
the number of breaks that were repaired,
the line was put In working order as quickly
as possible. The fact that the line passes
through a densely wooded country, subject
to severe storms, must be taken into cor.ild
eration. Nothing can be done to stop the
timber from falling during these storms. As
It is at such stormy periods that the line Is

Mr. Schulmerich declared that this food
for stock was a fraud, and that no good
results were ever obtained from its use.
and he warned the farmers against using
It. as it was worthless.
Professor Knlsely spoke on soil and
plant food. In the evening Inspector Reld
gave- a fine Illustrated lecture on "Fruit
