Congress of Tailors Agrees on the
Styles for Seasort.
NEW YORK, Feb. 14. Merchant tailors
from all over the country are on their
way to their homes, after a three days'
session in New York of the Merchant
Tailors' National Exbhange, a meeting
at which the styles for men's wear are
each season decided. While no hard and
fast rules are laid down by the exchange,
the predominating' opinion of the tailors
of the country is secured, and on that
opinion styles are based. It was plainly
stated that the opinion of London and
Paris was in no way to be taken into
consideration. Predominating opinion has
tiiis to say about masculine garments for
Spring and Summer:
First Cuffs on the ends of trousers
shall be frowned upon, but they shall be
encouraged for coat sleeves. They shall
be etolerated" only on soft flannel Sum
mer trousers. Cuffs on Winter trousers
shall be tabooed.
Second Fancy waistcoats may be" "rich
In color, but they shall be quiet In tone."
Asked to explain that, a member eaid
that while rich colored, small stripes and
checks would be used, the "ensemble
must be modest."
Third Coat lapels must not be pressed
down hard; they shall have the soft roll
" Fourth Trousers shall no longer be
built full about the thighs, they shall tit
not tiehily. but easily. The legs shall be
just big enough in the knees for ease.
Fifth Suitings ehall be of the striped
Sixth Coats as to their length shall be
Seventh Any tailor with a patron who
does not pay his bill shall send that name,
with a full description of the offender,
to the secretary of the exchange, who
shall then send it to members of the ex
change all over the country.
Council Committee Kcady to Inves
tigate Local Trusts.
In announcing yesterday the fact that
the special committee named by Mayor
Lane to probe alleged trusts in the city
will hold its first meeting at the City
Hall at 10 o'clock this morning. Council
man Vaughn. Its chairman, declared that
"everything in Portland that looks like a
'trust' will be investigated." Organiza
tion and plans for procedure will be out
lined at the first session, but it is doubt
ful if anything further will be done to
day. Councilman Concannon and Beld
ing are the other members.
Inasmuch as the Draymen's Association
lias been declared by Councilman Kclla
her to be an Illegal trust. In restraint of
trade, it Is thought probable the commit
tee will select that organization as the
first subject of investigation. Council
man Vaughn, however, would not confirm
or deny this rumor, but at the last meet
ing of the Council, he declared he ex
pected soon to have, the privilege of as
certaining something very Interesting
about the Draymen's Association, as well
as other combines. At the time, he was
talking to Councilman Driscoll, a, political
enemy, and member of the alleged "trust"
under fire.
The special committee was named by
Mayor Lane a month ago. on motion of
Mr. Vaughn, and an appropriation of $1000
was made to defray the expense of tak
ing and extending the testimony and
other necessary features of the investiga
tions. Councilman Vaughn declared yes
terday that there will be "fireworks"
when the real investigating work is be
gun, unless the committee's power is
taken away.

Citizens Come to the Front With
Generous Donations of Bushes.
Patriotic Exercises on Washing

Splendid public spirit has been
shown in the effort to secure enough

deavor in the history of the city. Only
four days ago the announcement was
made that the Portland Rose Festival

Funeral services for John Cran, the pioneer merchant who died
Thursday night of pneumonia, will be held this afternoon at the Hol
man undertaking establishment, at 2 o'clock. Services will be held
later at the Portland Crematorium, where the body will be cremated.
Xews of Mr, Cran's death caused general surprise and sorrow
about the city yesterday, as it was not known ho was ill. The fatal .
malady gripped him suddenly and, as is usual with men of fine phy
sique, the-. pneumonia quickly carried him to death.
Besides his wife, Mr. ("ran leaves a brother, James Cran, living
in British Columbia, and another brother and three sisters in Scot
Association would try to secure the
donation of 5000 sets to be planted on
Washington's Birthday in the three
plaza blocks set aside by the park
board for tnat purpose, and last night
every bush required had been pledged,
with a number of checks on hand that
are to be used for the purchase of ad
ditional plants.
In The Oregonian yesterday the an
nouncement was made that 3450 of
the 5000 bushes had been donated, and
during the day the remainder, or 1550
plants were promised, the Portland
Hunt Club and the Portland Kennel
Club coming strongly to the front on
behalf of this unique celebration.
The following donations during the
day completed the list:
Portland Kennel Club BOO
Portland Hunt Club ,.. 500
Warren Construction Company 3'K
F. A. Krlbs
J. B. PilklnBton 20
Total 1530
Chairman W. M. Davis of the special
committee, with Chairman E. W. Rowe
of the ways and means committee,
have worked together on the proposi
tion during the few days of the cam
paign and, yesterday afternoon, their
efforts were' rewarded with complete
success when Nurseryman Pilkington
called up Mr. Rowe and inquired:
"How many are you shy of the StiOO
"Don't know." said Rowe, , "let me
figure up. Hello, say, it's just 250."
"Well, call off the hunt and sendl
your committee around any time you
want the roses, I've got 'em here wait
ing for you."
The Festival people feel highly elated
over the success of this undertaking,
for the reason that no systematic cam
paign was attempted to get donations
for the planting day. In almost every
instance the offerings were entirely
voluntary, and in other cases, atten
tion was merely called to the object
of the campaign and the contributions
were immediately forthcoming.
Monday afternoon a meeting will be
held in Mayor Lane's office, at which,
there will be present representatives'
of the special Festival committees, the
committee of the Rose Show and mem
bers of the Park Board, to take up
matters relating to carrying out a
programme of patriotic exercises in
connection with the planting of the
roses. This plan has already mr with
the approval of the members of the
Park Board and if the school directors
consent to allow the children of the
public schools to take rart in the cele
bration, it is bound to be one of the
most memorable occasions of its char
acter incident to the history of Port
land. Whether Washington's birthday is
observed as a half-holiday or not, the
whole T4iird Regiment will be ordered
out by Colonel McDonell, to act as a
military escort for the children, who
will carry the roses to the park blocks.
The officers of the regiment will be
mounted, and the regimental bank will
lead the procession, rendering appro
priate music for the occasion. '
The meeting Monday afternoon will
fix the hour when the planting is to
begin and the outline of the pro
gramme of exercises.

in Success at Colfax.
ALBION, Wash.. Feb. 14. (Special.)
Thirty years ago a 16-year-old boy left
his home in Washington, la., to seek his
fortune in the West. For 30 years the
mother of that boy looked in vain for
tidings from her lost son, but at last her
patient longing has been rewarded.
That boy is now Archie McAvoy, well
known and highly respected, and the
mother and a sister of Mr. McAvoy are
now residents of. Colfax. Wash.
Neither had heard a word from the
other for 30 years until this week, when,
by chance, the mother learned of the
name and at once telephoned him to find
if he might be her long-missing son.
They have not yet met, as Mr. McAvoy
finds it impossible to get away from a
friend near his farm home who has the
smallpox and requires his attention, but
thinks that by tomorrow he will find
opportunity to go and see the mother
and sister. But 15 miles have been be
tween mother and son since the former
has been a resident of Colfax.

Klser's Originals. 248 Alder st.
Defense in Anderson Murder
Trial Declines to Call
ltests After Recalling City Detectives
Jones and Tichenor for Cross
Examination Jury Will Be
gin Deliberations Today.
The defense in the trial of Joe Ander
son for the murder of Harry M. Logan
on the night of October 24, sprang a
surprise yesterday afternoon for which
Deputy District Attorney Adams was
wholly unprepared, by recalling City De
tectives Tichenor and Jones, and en
deavoring to weaken their testimony by
cross-examination, then announcing that
the defense had no more testimony.
Anderson was not placed on the stand,
although he had twice Jumped to his feet
and shouted denials from his place during
the taking of testimony.
The second time was yesterday morning
when Jacob Hilt was telling of Ander
son's confession to him, and of Ander
son's efforts to have Thomas J. Maher
an aged cripple who saw him in South
Portland on the night of the murder,
and Roy Embury, another witness put
out of the way.
Anderson's animus against Embury, who
testified yesterday morning, it Is alleged,
Is that Anderson practically confessed to
Embury that he murdered Logan. As
Anderson was leaving the courtroom in
charge of Deputy Sheriff -Beatty he made
a lunge at Embury, and but for the
quick action of the Deputy Sheriff would
have. felled his enemy with a blow in the
Embury said he slept with Anderson
the night before the murder. Anderson,
he said, nad shown him bis revolver,
belt and cartridges, and had even called
his attention to the fact that the factory
numbers were ground off the handle of
the weapon, remarking that he had had
the job done on the East Side. Embury
said that Anderson asked him the next
day if he had read the accounts of the
Logan murder in the newspapers, and
when Embury said lie bad not, Anderson
said, "I made a bungling job of it."
Hilt the Star Witness.
Hilt, the star witness . for the state,
who was in the County Jail with Ander
son, having been arrested for assaulting
an old man at the County Poorfarm, said
Anderson approached him one day in the
jail corridor where the -prisoners were
taking exercise, 'and asked him to come
to his cell. Hilt said it was there that
Ander.son first proposed that Hilt -kill
Roy Embury and Thomas Maher, about
two weeks later suggesting that Mrs.
Winans, be killed too. Hilt said Anderson
told him he was sure that Mrs. Winans
saw him the night of the murder, as she
was at the window.
"Did she see you climb down from the
bridge," said Hilt.
"I didn't climb down, I jumped," Ander
son is said to have replied.
"What did you kill this man Logan
for," Hilt said Tie then asked.
"What are you going to do when you
are broke, and you hold-up a man, and
he knocks you down? You have got to
kili him, or be taken in," was the alleged
"That is absolutely false," yelled Ander
son as he sprang from his chair toward
the revolver lying on a desk by the
witnees chair, six feet away.
Deputy Sheriff Beatty, who sits direct
ly behind the prisoner grabbed him, and
unceremoniously Jammed him back into
his chair. When Hilt made the same
statement under cross-examination yes
terday afternoon Anderson made no
demonstration. As the case proceeded an
occasional smile flitted across his face,
which is hidden by a heavy black beard.
Attorney Jeffrey Objects.
This testimony, the strongest that had
been introduced, was objected to by At
torney Jeffrey for the defendant on the
ground that it was contrary to the
state's theory of premeditation, which it
Is necessary to prove in order to convict
of murder in the first degree. Attorney
Jeffrey also made a motion In the after
noon to strike out all of Hilt's testimony
on the same ground. Judge Bronough
overruled both motions, and allowed ex
ceptions. Hilt said in the afternoon that Ander
son told him he had thrown Into the
water of the gulch, back of the house,
on East Washington street, where he was
caught, a Sfi-caliber Smith & Weston re
volver, blue finish with the numbers
drilled off the butt. He said Anderson
wanted him to get a black mackintosh
with a checkered pattern on the Inside,
and with a patch, on the neck, and place
It in the gulch near the First-street
trestle in South Portland, so as to show
that the one the police had was not the
right one. He identified a diagram in
troduced in evidence as one Anderson had
drawn of the locality of the murder.
"I didn't promise him to kill his men,"
continued Hilt, "but I baited him. He
told me he would kill any 12 men I
wanted, and particularly mentior 4 ?un
erintendent Jackson, at the Poorfarm.
"I told him that If I was going to do
the job I needed a gun, and then it was
that he told me of the weapon in the
gulch. I told him I could not do the
Job with my weapon.
"Anderson gave me a diagram and a
piece of paper, a fly leaf, torn from a
book in the County Jail, on which the
names of the men were spelled back
ward." Both the book and paper were
identified by Hilt when shown him.
Hilt said further that he first tojd a
member of the police moral squad of
Anderson's confession, but that lie did
not do it until after he was released from

jail, for the reason that people might say
be did It to secure immunity. He said
he had some information regarding othr
crimes, which he had secured from other
prisoners, but the court ruled .that he
need not tell of this, as It was Immaterial.
When Hilt's testimony was finished the
state rested its case.
The defense called Detectives Tichenor
and Jones, who said they had secured a
38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver from
a trunk, at 482 East Washington street,
where Anderson was arrested, but that
Joe Martin claimed it. They could not
say. whether the numbers were ground off
or not. but said it .was a nickied weapon,
and they found afterward that the one
they wanted was blued. They testified
they did not know at first whether it
was a Colts or a Smith & Wesson weapon
they were looking for.
The large crowd in the courtroom was
disappointed when Attorney Jeffery then
announced that the defense had no more
testimony, without putting Anderson on
the stand to testify in his own behalf.
Although it was only 3:30 o'clock in
the afternoon. Deputy District Attorney
Adams complained that the air in the
courtroom was very oppressive, to him at
least, that he had thought the defense
would drag its case out for another day,
that he had prepared no instructions
which the court should give to the Jury
and would like to have time to look up
"several little points that have been
raised here." and that he was not pre
pared to argue the case. As Attorney
Jeffrey had no objections. Judge Bronough
reluctantly ordered a recess until 9 o'clock
this morning, a half hour earlier than the
court sessions are usually begun. The
case will probably be in the hands of the
jury tonight.
