eompliah waa brought to Portland yes
terday by Samuel U. Carson, a fruit
srrowsr, residing at Jrr-teon. The evidence
consisted of splendid samples of muscat
and tokay grapes end Alberta peaches.
Mr. Carson reports that one of his neigh
bors this year raised Ave tons of grapes
on an acre of ground and refused an offer
of 3 cents a pound for the crop on the
vines. The irrigation district of which Ir

this reason that the land Is so admirably
adapted to growing grapes and peaches.

Inches tall, with a sandry moustache.
Cr-on entering the church Sunday morn

sick man left the building and a few
minutes later was discovered by one of
the church attendants In the residence of
the priest but the stranger disarmed sim
pleton by explaining that Rev. Father
Gregory had told him to go Into the house

occupants of the house returned after
mass, the stranger had disappeared to
gether with the Jewelry which was taken
from a desk which had been broken open.

Mr. Burrell came to Portland 25 years

The Late L. B. BurrelL

Forged Names Found
on Saloon Petition.
Signatures of " Temperance " Mea
on Paper Aaklna- Liquor Permit la
Kenllworth Declared Bosrus.
EVIDENTLY the attempt to establish
a saloon In Kenllworth Is either a
"Joke." or somebody has forged a lot
of names on the petition for license
for the saloon. A meatmarket was
started on Francis avenue, near Glad
stone, but it failed, and then a petition
was circulated asking for a license for
a saloon In the building, with the re
sult that the entire neighborhood be
came stirred up over the prospects of
a saloon among the homes. Sunday
last It was reported that 33 names of
property owners were on the petition,
and Inquiry among half a dozen of
these brought out the fact that they
had never signed the petition. Never
theless their names are on the peti
tion among a long list of others.
E. F. Mouldenhauer, who Is opposed
to saloons, says he saw the names of
four or five men who are known to be
opposed to saloons. A temperance man,
working at the Southern Pacific car
shops, ascertained that his name is on
the petition. When the men at the
shops asked him how a temperance
man could sign a petition for a saloon
he took it as a Joke, not dreaming his
name was really down on the petition,
but It is there just the same.
H. S. Harcourt said he does not think
the petition is circulated as a joke, and
hence no chances will be taken and the
matter will be watched closely. How
ever, as the City Council has taken a
stand against allowing- any more sa
loons in the residence districts. It is
hardly probable that a license will be
granted unless the people ask for It.

The suit of Mrs. Louise Powell Stevens
against her former putative husband. T.

This date was set by Judge Gantenbeln in

ing as the time for the hearing of the civil

ing that he made a contract to pay her
$309 a month, and has failed in making
the payments. Stevens will then be called
upon to give his version of the affair.
It Is charged In the complaint that after
Stevens entered Into the contract July 27,
1907, he made only two payments, at the
same time running up an expense account
for more than this amount. A. E. Clark,
Mrs. 6tevens attorney, will brlntc Into the
suit a deposition made by Mr. Stevens be
fore a notary public, relative to Stevens
wives. Mrs. Stevens is In Seattle, where
she has been under medical treatment, but
her attorney says that she will return to
Portland a few days before the trial that
she may go over the case with him in
The case might have been set for today
had the parties to the suit been ready, for
Judge Oantenbeln mentioned the fact that
there waa a vacancy on the calendar. But
Mr. Clark said that he could not be ready
by this time, so the court net a later date.
Although Judge Thomas O' Day, represent
ing Air. Stevens, was present in the court
room when court convened, he was not
present when his case was called.
