LITTLE GIRL LOST
Attempt of Fanatical Foster
Parents to Get Child
RETURNS TO ALBANY FARM
Jury of Six in State Court Declares
Edna SHngerland, Trance Me
dium of Tongues of Fire, a
Little Edna Slingerland, who was taken
from her foster parents, Mr. and Mrs.
TV. A. SHngerland. by the Juvenile Court
six months ago. that she might be out
from under the Influence of the Tongues
of Fire devotees, was yesterday declared
by a Jury of six 1n the Circuit Court to
be a delinquent child, and subject to the
order of the court. She will be this
morning again remanded by Judge Frazer
to the custody of V. T. Gardner, super
intendent of the Boys" and Girls- Aid So
ciety, and will probably be sent to live
on a ranch near Albany, where she has
been having excellent care for the past
six months. ,
SHngerland himself took the stand yes
terday afternoon, and his testimony did
not tend to win the Jury to his side of tke
case. As he stepped forward, and Ve
clerk raised his hand to swear the wit
ness, SHngerland said excitedly, "I will
not." "'You may confirm the witness
then," said Judge Frazer.
A letter' threatening Judge Frazer with
the loss of one of . his children if he did
not deliver up little Edna to SHngerland,
written by her foster parent a short time
after she was taken from him, was intro
duced as evidence. Deputy District At-
torney Robert Galloway was questioning
SHngerland. and rose to read the letter
to the jury after SHngerland had Identi
fied it. but said his voice would not per
mit. "I will read it," said Judge Frazer,
but before he could do so SHngerland
reached for the paper, stood up before the
jury, and said:
Received Message From God.
"Every word of this is God's truth.
I was directed by God to write that letter.
This is a message from God to you, Mr.
Frazer, and do you heed it? Unless you
deliver to me my little girl immediately
God will take from you one of your little
girls, and that right soon."
He continued to read from the letter
a number of texts of Scripture, and wlten
questioned by members of the jury said
that he-believed Judge Frazer held the
same position us Hainan of the book of
I-hther when he erected a gallows for

came from the Jury box. "Wa it oral
"I received it from God," said SHng
erland. as he glared at the juror. "It
came through one of his servants. I
was directed by God to write that let
ter." During the giving of his testimony
SHngerland had a number of tilts with
the lawyers, and although he was not
on the etand more than 10 minutes had
to be excused to get a drink. He tes
tified that the little girl would go into
the trances during family worship,
that he had een her in several, when
she would see angels, and would run
about the room to catch them. After
she awoke from the trance she would
Know nothing that had happened, but
would be very weak. If she saw no
angels when in the trance the girl
would talk or write in a jargon which
no one could understand, although
SHngerland said a Chinese boy was
brought out to the house and said he
could make out four of the characters
t Trances of Little Girl.
The trouble began, according to the
testimony of various witnesses, when
Edna was sent to Mrs. A. Barton's home
on Holladay avenue for a few days
while Mrs. SHngerland was away nurs
ing a Mrs. Smith. Mrs. SHngerland was
away from home four weeks beginning
December IS, 1906. The testimony
Bhowed that at various times the
leaders of the Tangled Tongues held
services at the Barton home, at which
Edna was present.
"Have you ever discussed visions be
fore the child?" asked Attorney Gallo
way, of Mr. SHngerland. !
"During the time you visited at Mrs.
Barton's has she ever been in one of
"Yes, sir, that's what you call triem."
"Well, what do you call them?" re
torted Mr. Galloway.
SHngerland admitted he had never
named them in his own mind.
"That's a Bible term, and it's all right
SHngerland said he did not know
whether he would have the power to see
i-isicns in tne future or not. but that God
was leading him. He said the girl had
:he trances from about Christmas time
until she was stolen from him by Judge
"But didn't Judge Frazer let you take
the girl upon the promise of your wife
that you would keep her away from the
fanatical influence of the Tongues of Fire
sect and that you would not have any
more meetings at Mrs. Barton's?" con
:inued Mr. Galloway.
"There never was a called meeting at
Mrs Barton s.
"Well, you needn't be so technical
ibout it," said Mr. Galloway.

"You are. proceed."
"Did you know a fellow by the name of
Joseph A. Burrows."
"I knew a gentleman by that name,
yes. sir. not a fellow."
"Did he follow the child around the
room during her trances?"
"He did at the time he waa there with
"You had a conversation with the child
afterwards. What did she say?"
"She said she could not remember any
thing that had happened."
When Mrs. SHngerland took the stand
and told of her arrest and appearance
before the Juvenile Court, SHngerland was
heard to exclaim: "Oh, God!" so great
was his mental anguish. In a few min
utes his wife was engaged in a word
battle with Judge Frazer over the trans
attions of the court last Winter and the
Instructions given her to properly care
for the girl.
Judge Frazer Takes Stand.
Judge Frazer then . took the witness
stand himself and told the Jury all the
happenings at the time the girl was given
nto the custody of the Boys' and Girls
Aid Society, much to the excitement and
chagrin of SHngerland, who Jumped up
and said: "I deny that: I want to make
statement." He was told by his at
torney, V. K. Strode, to be quiet.
Jdna herself was then placed on the
stand and told the jury she did not want
to go back to live with the Slingerlands
under the' circumstances: that the leaders
of the Tongues of Fire Influenced her un
duly, and that when she came out of the
ranees she felt very weak. She said
she was happy at her new home near
Albany, and hoped she could go back
'You see, I don't want to go back to
morrow, because this has not been very
much of a vacation to me yet." she said.
Those trances were all foolishness, but
thought because other folks could go
into them f could, too."
Other witnesses were T. L. Grave. W.
Williamson and J. St. Johns, roomers at
Mrs. Barton's at the time Enda was
there, and Miss Simpson and Miss Fail-
ng. her schoolteachers. The Jury was as
follows: H. D. Kilham. James Frainey,
A. H. Knutson. T. E. Martin. Grant Tur
ner and P. McDonald. They are all men
of families and business men.

OAK STREET SOCIAL HAPPENINGS
SOCIETY GOES IN TOR AQUATIC SPORTS POPULAR COUPLE CELEBRATE THEIR CRYSTAL WED
DING. ANNIVERSARY MR. PEARSON MAY RUN TOR THE SENATE.
ITH the advent of oppressively
hot weather Oak street society
is rather inclined to eBchew the
greater part of its accustomed gaieties.
Sundry receptions and entertainments
occur only as eocial necessity dictates,
and at Infrequent intervals. The one
manner of entertainment to be quite in
vogue at this time is schoonerlng.
This delightful form of aquatic p-ast-time
is becoming more and more pop
ular daily and has replaced yachting
altogether among the truly fashion
able. Yachting parties, to be sure, may
have " their interest for dislngenlous
millionaires, but well-bred, conserv
ative Oak street is impelled, 'by the
force of its more highly developed
esthetic nature, to confine Its atten
tion to sehoonering. Sitting out in the
hot sun in a 10 horse-power yacht or
launch may be regarded as pleasurable
aquatic sport by some immature ple
bians. But it cannot be compared in
its capacity for producing pleasurable
sensations to the piloting of a foaming
five mule-power schooner across some
cool, placid bar far removed from
scenes of water.
One of the notable sehoonering
parties of the season was that given
by Mme. F. Nugent on Wednesday of
this week. In all Its appointments
this affair was elegant; from the ca
pacious schooners provided fr the de
lectation of guests on down to the
plentltude of floor space reserved
most considerately for those wljo might
in the course of the evening become
seasick. The affair was held in the
splendid Nugent apartments on Fourth
street, near Burnside. Mme. Nugent
wore an exquisite frock of embroidered
purple- gauze over Egyptian crochet
with a pink hat done in green giraffe
feathers set -off with yellow hippo
potamus wings and a da-ab of creme

County and a large number of other citi
zens met In the Grange Hall here today
and formed an organization, the object of
which will be to establish and conduct
a permanent county fair. The meeting
was held in pursuance to a call issued by
Gresham Grange and was called to order
by J. F. Roberts, who stated the objects
of the meeting.
J. J. Johnson, master of Evening Star
Grange, was elected chairman and E. L.
Thorp secretary. Mr. Johnson called for
an expression of ideas and the sentiment
was unanimous for the organization of a
county fair on permanent lines and with
a scope broad enough to Include every
Outlines, Gresham's Plans.
Timothy Brownhill outlined the plans of
Gresham Grange in the matter, .which are
to have exhibits of stock, produce and
Implements, combined with an educational
institute and carnival. He said that suit
able grounds for this year had been
promised free of charge by Dr. A Thomp
son and the trustees of the Baptist
Church, and that Gresham Grange hall
could also be had.
W. W. Cotton, of Portland, addressed
the meeting, saying that the affair could
and would be made a success, but that
the promoters must start in with the idea
of losing money at first, as the fair was
to be held mainly for the purpose of ad
vertising the county's resources.
Other speakers advance similar views,
among them being H. Wi Snashall, A. F.
Muller. F. H. Crane. John Sleret and the
chairman, all of whom are masters of
different granges. A. I.. Stone. Theodore

She received many compliments on her
charming appearance, the one criticism
being offered that her beauty would
have appeared to better advantage set
oft by a full velvet veil. Miss Clara
was charming in a smart mauve linen
costume studded with rhlnestones.
She wore an attractively hand-painted
hat with complexion of the same ma
terial. The other ladiee also wore
dresses, while each of the gentlemen
apeared to fine advantage in a suit of

in the Oak-street blue book. Mr. Cam
eron Insisted that all sbould remain as
his guests for a week, and since the
kind host would not take no for an
answer the invitation was accepted.
The gentlemen of the party were
driven, yesterday afternoon, to fash

spend the week playing rock-golf.

stage in their married career.

Local Merchants to Help.
Several of the leading merchants of
Gresham announced .that they would
erect all necessary pavilions for ex
hibits of all kinds and stock pens for
horses, cattle, sheep and hogs.
On motion of Mr. Brownhill it was
decided to hold the Multno"mah Grange I
Fair and Carnival for four days, be
ginning October 15. It was decided to
make the fair, in a way. a mutual in
stitution for this year, but the asso
ciation will be incorporated and placed
on a different basis before another sea-
All the foregoing preliminaries hav
ing been settled, it was moved by Mr.
Cotton that the masters of the ten
granges of the county bo chosen as
a board of directors, the membership
to be increased to 15 by the addition
of the masters of Multnomah County
Pomona and four others not members
of the order.
Favor Fifteen Directors.
The motion was carried and the ap
pointments made by the chairman. Be
sides the masters the other four mem
bers of the board are: Charles Cleve
land. H. E. Davis, Louts Dechmann and
The board will have full charge of
every feature and department and each
master will be chairman of a commit
tee to be appointed at the next meet-
lng. The other four were given as
signments as follows: H. E. Davis,
chairman of committee on agriculture;
Charles Cleveland, committee on dairy
stock; Louis Dechmann, committee on
horticulture; R. Wilson, committee on
horses and livestock.
Besides these assignments three
other committees were named and
chairmanships filled. They are: Do
mestic science, Mrs. H. L. Vail; dairy
ing. B. C. Altman; fancy work, Mrs.
E. M. Douglass.
Organizatldn Is Permanent.
The board of directors then proceeded to
form a permanent organization by the se
lection of J. J. Johnson as president and
E. L. Thorp, secretary. The First State
Bank was elected treasurer. A. F. Miller
was made general superintendent of all
It was decided to offer prizes for all
entries and to charge an admission to the
grounds. This will be necessary in order
to raise money for the cash premiums.
It was announced that several promi
nent business houses of Portland had
made offers of donations as premiums,
one Implement house offering a farm
wagon as a prize. Others will be asked
to do likewise and to exhibit their wares.
Mayor Short, of Gresham, who was not
present, sent word that he would give
$100 to assist the enterprise. Others are
known who will make liberal donations
and the fair, It is thought, is sure to be
a success, if finances count for anything.
Kallroad to Assist.
Mr. Cotton looked over the proposed
mutual courtesies. They usually set

assistance of furniture or cooking

with a number of handsome crystal

OAK STREET may put out a candi
date for the United States Senate
in the person of Hon. Jason Sourbald
Pearson, the eminent bacteriologist and
expert on lnsectlvora, who lately took
the vigorous scientific stand that all
liquor swarms with bacteria and should
be consumed as rapidly as possible.
Mr. Pearson has not yet announced
his candidacy, but his conduct is taken
to mean that he is occupied with acute
political aspirations. Of late he has
become excessively - polite, and has a
cheerful word for everyone.- including
his wife. He is so generally kind and
generous that his conduct can be taken
to have but the one significance, un
less, of course, he has invaded the
realm of mandragora or courted the
fiend cocaine. His continued and
unvaried politeness and considera
tion for everyone, however, gives
his friends to believe that political
aspirations are the stimulus, since
periods of physical reaction would un
avoidably follow use of narcotics.

Railroads in Pacific Northwest
STATION AGENTS RESIGN
Find Better Opportunities In Busi
ness for Themselves Ticket
Sellers Also Hard to Keep
at Present Salaries.
Railroads of the Pacific Northwest are
having great difficulty In getting local
agents at their small stations, and in se
curing ticket agents to fill vacancies. It
seems almost impossible to secure men to
take the places of those who are con
stantly leaving to go Into other business.
The Southern Pacific and O. R. & N.
officials say they have never had so
much trouble to get capable men to per
form these duties as at present. All
lines of Industry are so prosperous
throughout the Pacific Northwest that
there are big Inducements for the rail
road agents to drop into other positions
that are better paid than railroad work.
There are a dozen vacancies on the
lines of the O. R. & N. alone that could
be offered to capable agents. Among the
larger stattons where agents have re
signed during the past few - weeks are
Baker City, Pendleton, Colfax and Day
ton. Many smaller towns are also In
need of local agents.
Ticket clerks are In great demand. It
seems that they connot be had. Sal
aries are not so high in this line as men
of equal ability can command In other
vocations and there Is a general deser
tion from the ranks. In every depart
ment of railroading, except that of traf
fic, there are organizations of. the. men
which compel increases In salaries. But
there Is no union among ticket clerks or
local agents and the consequence Is that
firemen and brakemen get advances while
the wages paid the traffic men do not
Since commissions have been eliminated
another source of profit for the ticket
clerk has been cut off, and with the en
forcement of the new railroad laws
whereby a ticket clerk is responsible for
his own mistakes, and must make them
good personally, another Inducement has
been added for ticket clerks to quit 'the
service. Formerly If mistakes were made
In selling a ticket below the tariff price,
the company would make good , the dif
ference and the shortage did not come
out of the clerk's pocket. Since the Hep
burn law has become effective, each clerk
Is responsible for his. own errors.
An instance in point Is that of a Seat
tle clerk who sold five second-class
tickets a few days ago. There was a dif
ference of $10 on each ticket between the
first and second-clasB fare. This clerk
neglected to punch the tickets for second-class
passage and consequently ho
had to make up the difference of $50
'We are having a strenuous time to set
local agents," said John M. Scott, as
sistant general passenger agent for the
Harriman lines, yesterday. "There are
vacant positions in the traffic depart
ment almost every month paying from
$60 to $100. The men desert to go Into
other lines of work. It seems that some
are constantly leaving. There are Just
as many openings now in the railroad
business as ever and just as many
chances for promotion as ever."
Officials of the operating department
tell the same story of the need for local
agents at many points on the system.
Even office boys and stenographers are
hard to get. Men are preferred, as the
promotion of women beyond the grade of
stenographer in the railroad service is
Impracticable. Toung men who are sten
ographers are urgently needed.
