IS PLEAIN COURT
Riddell Says He Should Be
Removed as Administrator
of Johnson Estate.
FORTY REASONS ARE GIVEN
Charges of Neglect, Mismanagement
and Breach of Trust Are Revived
in Argument on Behalf of
Dead Man's Heirs.
H. H. Riddell, attorney for the heirs
of A. H. Johnson, says there are 40 rea
sons why William M. Ladd should be
removed as administrator of the Johnson
estate. Mr. Rlddoll began his argument
In the County Court yesterday afternoon.
He pointed out to the court that early
In the year 1894 A. H. Johnson was worth
nearly ll.000.Wiu, ana Knowing tie was go
ing to die made arrangements to settle
his Indebtedness, and also to provide for
hi wife and childrun.
Mr. Johnson wished to obviate expen
sive probate proceedings. He sent for
"William M. Ladd. his principal creditor,
and as the result of a conference exe
cuted a trust deed to Mr. Ladd covering
much property and also stock in the Union
Meat Company. The claims amounted
to $276,000, which included the claim of
Ladd & Tilton for 1),12.94.
Mr. Johnson was In a critical condition
and his sole oiject was to pay his debts
and leave his wife and children the re
mainder of las property. He died April
11, 1894, and n his will named his wife,
Cordelia Johnson, as executrix.
"Not until after her husband's death,"
said Mr. Ricdell, "did Mrs. Johnson know
the estate is, well as the trust property
was to be held liable for her husband's
debts. Nol until she was so told by her
Mr. llidlell explained that being; in
formed tre estate was to be held for the
debts as well as the trust property, Mrs.
Johnson in making up the inventory of
the esttte, wisely included the trust
propertj as well a the other property
because she concluded that if the estate
was to be held the trust property was as
much i Part of the estate as any other
property. Notwithstanding the title waa

MB Johnson died in August, 1808, and
Mr. Iidd in his Inventory did not Include
the trust property of which he assumed
to oe the absolute owner as part of the
estate and appraised the estate property
at only JJM.OW.
Mr. Ladd made no report to the County
Court concerning the trust property, said
Nr. Riddell, and violated the laws of
the state by not having done so and was
liable to have his letters of administra
The payment of A. H. Johnson's debts
as the consideration for the trust deed.
Jt was presumed to have wiped out John-
son's debts, and if it did not there was
no consideration and the deed was worth
less. William M. Ladd sold J15S.000 worth of
"property of the Johnson estate and got
the money. He made no reports to the
County Court, and was subject to re-J
moval as administrator for not having
done so. Mr. Riddell reviewed numerous
charges of mismanagement and neglect
which he has made against Mr. Ladd He
has not yet completed his argument.
At the morning session C. E. S. Wood
and S. B. Linthicum, attorney's for Mr.
Ladd, railed witnesses in rebuttal to
prove that tho Sprlnghill farm has been
well taken care of and la In good con
dition. . Witnesses also' testified In favor
of the heirs.
Spring Hill Farm Neglected.
Among the witnesses called was C. N.
Johnson, one of the heirs of the estate.
Mr. Johnson said that In 1S98 he pur
chased from the other heirs a 420-acre
tract of the Spring Hill farm, which,
wholly, or in part, he rented for a number
of years. One year he rented the entire
tract, and from this derived a return of
$1400. Mr. Johnson also stated that one
year the Spring Hill farm produced 12,000
bushels of grain and 400 tons of hay.
Now, aocording to tho testimony brought
out, the place Is practically unproductive.
Tho witness declared that within the past
few years some fence has been built by
James Nichols, one of the latest tenants
W. M. Ladd had placed in charge of It,
this fence having oak sapling posts is
already falling to decay. He said that al
most any of. the posts could be pushed
over now, and that within a short time
it would be level with the ground. He
Btated that the conduct of the tenants
generally was not such as would keep the
Sirs.' C. N. Johnson told of frequent
visits of her mothor-tn-law, Mrs. Cordelia
Johnson, to the office of Richard Will
iams, attorney, who Informed her on
each occasion that the estate was steadily
becoming less solvent. At one time
Nichols thought of buying the Spring Hill
farm, but later concluded that since he
had to make no repairs he would do bet
ter as a renter. She once heard Nichols
remark that Ladd -would not get enough
oft the place to pay the taxes.
Other witnesses testified that the
Spring Hill farm was originally rich, but
thrpugh neglect had lost value. James
Nichols, the evidence showed, had all
but abandoned the raising of grain on the
place and only raised fodder for hla cows.
Mr. Nichols, Mrs Ford and others
testified to the good condition of the farm.

In Vaudeville Houses
BY A. H. BALLARD
THE FINE vaudeville bill booked for
the Grand this week has been trans
ferred to the Star, together with the en
tire force of assistants formerly employed
at the larger house. The feature of the
bill, which, by the way, Is entirely good,
is Laura Howe and her lively collection of
animated Dresden dolls. This act is some
thing unique and should be seen to be ap
preciated. Another splendid act is the
Russian brothers Kallnowskl, in an acro
batic hand-balancing act similar In some
respects to the Beauclalre brothers at the
Grand last week. Dick Lynch, a clever
Irish comedian, furnishes much amuse
ment with his clever witticisms, and in
addition contributes a dancing turn much
on the George Primrose order. Arthur
Rlgby, In blackface, and Ada Jewell, in
operatic ballads, are clever, and the mov
ing pictures showing a crowd of girls from
a near-by Bemlnary badgering a farmer of
their neighborhood round out an excel
lent evening's entertainment.
T THE Pantages Theater thia week Is
r Professor Henri Rochford, who Intro
duces his mechanical doll Sapho for the
first time to the pleasure-seekers of Port
land. Sapho is really a clever piece of
mechanism. Others on the bill at this
popular house are Truxedo and Robinson,
who .return with new songs, new dialogue
and new wardrobe, and are better than
ever, before; Beverley and Danvers ren
der a clever sketch entitled "I'm a Mar
ried Man Myself," which is really amus
ing. The musical Spraguelles contribute
their musical specialty in the most pleas
ing manner. The Great W"allace, as he. Is
billed, is a contortionist of no mean abil
ity. Jack Leonard sings "Just Plain
Folks" with his usual presence, and has
made quite a hit. The moving pictures
depicting the pleasures of a straw ride In
the dead of Winter furnish an amusing
contrast to the present-day conditions,
which winds up an interesting entertain
ment. ACK, THE GAMBLER, is the title
J of the play offered the patrons of the
popular Lyrlo Theater this week, and has
for Its theme the scenes and incidents
around a Western mining camp. Jack
Mason is a gambler, and his especial
chum, Alex Fairfax, has a sister, with
whom Mason falls in love. Alec objects to
Mason"s suit because be is a gambler,
and around this is built a series of inci
dents in which a villain becomes involved,
and the whole story is cleverly told by the
Lyrio Stock Company. Frank Fanning as
the gambler, Herbert Ashton as his chum,
Warda Howard and Lilly Branscombe in
the principal roles are exceptionally well
OPEN AIR IS CURE
Dr. S. A. Knopf, Tuberculosis
Specialist, Advocates Common-Sense
REST, FOOD, FRESH AIR
Director of National Association for
Study and Prevention, of Tuber
culosis Declares Proper
Precautions Check It.
Dr. S. A. Knopf, of New Tork City,
who bears an international reputation
as a tuberculosis specialist and who
lived In Portland during his Btudent
days, 22 years ago, arrived In the city
yesterday. Dr. Knopf is a director of
the National Association for the study
and prevention of tuberculosis, o
which President Roosevelt and Grover
Cleveland are honorary vice-presidents.
Several years ago at a meeting of
medical men from all parts of the
worth held In Berlin Dr. Knopf was
awarded the international prize for an
essay entitled "Tuberculosis as a jjib
aasa of the Masses and How to Combat
It." Eighty-one eminent doctors took
part in the contest. The prise was
given by the German government. Dr.
Knopf's article has since been trans
lated into 21 different languages and
published in book form.
Uses Common-Sense Method.
Dr. Knopf's treatment of the dread
ed disease Is what he calls the "common-sense
method." Since consump
tion has been treated from a scientific
standpoint the number of cases has
been on the decrease. Plenty of good
plain substantial food is one of the
doctor's ideas, together with an abund
ance of fresh air and a great deal of
rest. Persons afflicted with the dis
ease should be careful with their ex
pectoration, says the doctor. If this is
properly looked after there is little
possibility of the spread of the germ.
Expectoration is what causes the
spread of the disease.
"People suffering from tuberculosis
should live in the open air as much as
possible 24 hours out of the 24 if pos
sible," Dr. Knopf said last evening at
the Hotel Portland. "In addition to the
common-sense method and constant
medical supervision which all cases
should be under, if the consumptive is
careful with his expectoration, there
is little chance of the disease spread
ing among others.
Consumption Is Curable.
"Pnnaiimntlnn t 1 1 .-. V, 1 T, t. n r. n
' be forgotten, of course, that it takes
from six to 12 months to complete
cures in early stages. Understand me,
the warfare against consumption is
not against the consumptive. If the pa
tient is careful and conscientious it is
safe for other people .to associate with
him. Exaggerated fear of the measure
of consumption, technically called
phthislophobia, is a great injustice to
the honest consumptive.
"The education of the masses against
tuberculosis should begin In the com
mon schools everywhere. The principles
of prevention should be taught to the
teachers and the children as well. All
school children should be examined pe
riodically for signs of tuberculosis and
inspected for infectious and communi
cable diseases as well. To this end
schools should have well-trained phy
sicians to make dally inspections.
Workshops and factories should be in
spected as to their sanitary condition
every so often. No one should expecto
rate, whether "he be a consumptive or
not, except in cuspidors.
"Climate is of secondary Importance.
Hygienic and dietic treatment I con
sider to be of primitative importance.
The climate of Portland Is particularly
suitable to persons suffering from the
disease, because the weather will per
mit the people to live out of doors 24
hours out of each day and 365 days of
City Should Have Sanatorium.
"Every city should have hospitals and
a sanatorium for the treatment of tuber
culosis." The early cases should be cared
for at the hospitals, and the hopeless anti
advanced patients taken to the sanato
rium. This would be a great help to the
fight now going on against the disease
and would prevent the infection of peo
ple In the districts occupied by the poor.
"The expectoration of a consumptive
contains a germ known among the mem
bers of the profession as tubercle bacillus
which Is alone responsible for the spread1
of the disease.
"Consumption is not directly Inherited.
But the infections in children usually take
place shortly after birth, from careless
and consumptive parents. The only thing
which is inherited . is the predisposition.
This can be overcome by intelligent par
ents, who bring up their children in ac
cordance with the laws of health and
"Poverty and want and bad housing
are also predisposing causes which render
people susceptible to tuberculosis. There
fore, no matter how many institutions a
municipality may create and maintain for
the treatment of consumption, it must see
that the laboring population Is properly
housed. Unsanitary conditions In the ten
ement districts must be done away with.
Lodglng-Houses Should Be Watched
"Otherwise, the number of patients that
are being treated by sanitary methods
will be constantly on the Increase. Tu
berculosis cases would be created daily
In unsanitary homes and unsanitary lodging-houses."
The doctor was highly pleased with the
deep Interest which prominent laymen of
Portland have taken in the tuberculosis
problem. Those who have established a
sanatorium near the city for consump
tives were to be given due credit for
doing something for the benefit of all
mankind, he thought. .
Dr. Knopf, who has made a life study
of his work, is also of the opinion that
the social aspect of the disease is as im
portant as the medical one. Only by the
united action of the laymen everywhere.
he declares, together with the members
of the medical profession, will it ever be
possible ultimately to eradicate consump
tion among the people of the civilized

Mischief II Has Easy Victory
for Lipton Cup.
AEOLUS COMES IN SECOND
First of Series for Pacific Coast
Yacht Honors Proves a Proces
sion, San Diego Boat
. Being Far Behind.
SAN DIEGO, Cal., Aug. . The South
Coast Yacht Club's Mischief II today won
the first of the series for the Lipton cup.
Aeolus, the San Diego defender, was sec
ond, and beat all other south coast
yachts, but her defeat by Mischief II was
rather a bad one.
In windward work the San Diego boat
more than held her own. After the first
stake the beat around the course was
dead to windward. Aeolus went around
first, then Mischief II closely followed.
The black racer from San Pedro In an
8-mile breeze took the lead and outpointed
the Aelous. Mischief II held her lead to
the end of the race, finishing 9 minutes
38 seconds ahead of Aeolus.
Then came Monsoon, 41 seconds behind
Aeolus, and 8 minutes 1 second ahead of
Mischief I. the latter two minutes ahead
of Sklddoo. The Efftrella did not finish
The first race was over a triangular
course off Coronado Beach, two miles to
a leg, twice around, making a 12-mile
The Mischief II. the largest boat In the
race, gave the Monsoon six seconds; the
Aeolus 31 seconds, the Sklddoo four min
utes, the Mischief I four minutes and
37 seconds and the Estella 10 minutes and
The starting gun was fired at 1 o'clock
and the Skiddoo was first over the line,
followed by the Aeolus In 10 seconds and
the Estrella 10 seconds later. The two
Mischiefs crossed almost together at
1:0H4. Light sails were spread at once
and the racers went down before the
wind, the Aeolus and Mischief II soon
overhauling the leader. At 1:14 the Aeolus
passed the Skiddoo and at 1.22 reached the
first turn ahead of the others, but Mis
chief II was only a minute behind, having
gained on the leg. In the beat to wind
ward, it was seen that the wind was too
strong for the Aeolus and the Mischief II
kept gaining and reached the windward
buoy at 1:57, well In the lead In the start
for the run home. The Mischief turned
the firrt buoy on the second round at
2:32. the Aeolus at 2:39 and the Monsoon
a minute and a half later. Mischief II
finished the race at 3:25Vi. far in the lead.
