Defense in Martin Trial Makes
Dents in Armor of Prosecution.
WILL SOON GO TO JURY
Pefen.- Will Rest Case Today To
morrow Arguments Will Be
Made and Suit May Be Sub
mitted at Night.
Against the maM of olrcuiiistantlal
evidence produced by the state to show
tliat Edward H. Martin murdered Nathan
Wolff. tlere was hurled by the defense
a broadside of counteracting circum
stances. In the State Circuit Court, yes
terday. In taking; up tiie strands of
evidence against Martin and seeking: to
eliminate tlieir effectiveness one by one,
Martin's counsel entered testimony in
answer to at least four of the strongest
points of the prosecution.
The tell-tale scratches on Martin's face,
exploited as the result of a deadly strug
irle with Nathan Wolff, were on his face
the night preceding tile murder, said one
witness for Martin.
lie had a ions', black, cravenette rain
coat for several months previous to the
tragedy; hence, it was not unusual that
he had such a garment In his possession
when arrested. Two witnesses said this.
As to the gloves found In Martin's
suitcase and which Mrs. Wolff said were
her husband's, because she recognized
the points where she had mended the
loosened stitching, half a dozen clothing
experts swore that the particular make
of gloves In question are continually
causing trouble. Dozens of pairs are
sewed by hand everv week, it was shown.
Wolff Had Large Hand.
Wolff had a. large hand and could not
hare worn the gloves found In Martin's
suitcase. Two witnesses gave this as
Wolff was very quarrelsome, high
tempered and likely to arouse antago
nisms with those dealing at his place.
Two witnesses snld this.
And as a climax to these points, a
witness was produced who swore he saw
two men leave Wolff's store sometime
between S: and 7 o'clock the night of
the murder. One was carrying a bundle.
While the state undermined the man's
story to a considerable degree, on cross
examination. yet corroborative evidence
offered a few minutes later was left un
shaken, when another witness described
seeing two similar men In the Wolff
store a few minutes before o'clock the
night of the tragedy.
Such was the progress made by the de
fense In Its first day. If the Jury ac
cepts what these various witnesses say
as the truth, Martin's conviction would
seem a matter of grave doubt.
Just what credence Is given tiie story
that two men actuully left Wolff's place
at the hour of the murdT and that
neither of theni was Martin, cannot, of
course be guessed. Nevertheless, the
case bears a romewhat changed aspect
ut this time, those who have been fol
lowing the trial aver. Messrs. Jeffrey,
Fiuts and Ambrose, who are handling
M.-irtin's case, say much of their most
convincing testimony will be devetoped
l)-r-ne Will Rest Today.
The defense expects to rest Its case
late this afternoon. Thursday will be
consumed in the opening and closing
statements. It is tegarded as entirely
probable that the Jury will have the in
tricate problem of settling the murder
mystery on Its hands by tomorrow night.
If Alfred Haldon, a young man of iX
w-BS telling the truth and was not mis
taken In his details. Martin's innocence
would aeem to be reasonably certain.
Balilen said he was at the corner of First
and Morrison streets shortly after 6
o'clock of tiie fatal night. He had been
on his way from the Kust J?lde to 3ee
ond and Alder to take a Lower Alhlna
car when a severe fall of rain caused him
to take refuge In a doorway. He was
only a short distance from Wolff's store,
on the opposite side of the street, he said.
While he was standing there he noticed
that the lights In Wolff's store were be
ing rapidly switched on and off. This
struck him as very peculiar. Then he
saw two men emerge, so he testified. One
was a tall, heavy man. the other a short
individual. The short man. with a basket
under his arm. hurried southward. The
larger man. after pausing to button his
overcoat, proceeded in a more leisurely
manner northward. Kalden said lie paid
no particular attention to the men until
he learned Bfterwnrd of the murder. He
paw Martin after the arrest and w-as cer
tain that he was not one of the two
men that left Wolff's place.
Mands Hot Cross-Examination.
Deputy District Attorney Fitzgerald
went after this witness In no mild way.
He kept with him on cross examination
until the effect of what Balden said had
been somewhat weakened. For Balden
Said, when pressed with question after
question covering every minute of his
time on that night, that he heard of the
murder at P. M. while returning from
Lower Alliina. here lie had gone at 7
o'clock to call on a young woman.
Wolffs btidy wasn't discovered until
nearly 9 o'cNn-k. news of the crime
wasn't about town until close to 9:30
and rnissihly didn't reach Iiwer Alliina
for sonie considerable time afer that.
The defense will maintain that Balden
may have been mistaken as to the time
he was returning from Athina. as he
was calling on a young woman and time
nay have ia.ecd much faster than he
What Balden snld. however, was given
a clor of truth by the testimony of the
next witness. K. L. tJiles, a real estate
salesman, residing at 412 Second street.
Villi s sM be was passing Wolff's place
at 10 minutes of I". M. the night of
the murder. He paused in front of the
strtre to look at the window display.
Looking into the place he saw Wolff
talking with a large, powerfully-built
man. A smaller man was looking In
the showcases behind him.
Testimony Is Confirmed.
Olles described these men in some de
tail. His description tallied exactly with
the description given by Balden of the
two men who left Wolff's place between
6 30 and 7. after switching the lights.
What llles said was unshaken by cross
examination. It developed that Balden Is not given to
Industry and Is In rather bad circum
stances. He Is now- at the City Jail on
charge of vagrancy. For a year he
has been living on remittances from his
parents In Germany. Arriving in Port
land three weeks ago with K which
had been cabled him at Seattle from
Cermany. he was penniless In a few days.
His story to his movements preced
ing his arrival at First and Morrison
streets the night Wolff was murdered
and his fixing the time between :30 and
7 were told in a convincing manner and
If the Jury Is inclined to believe his tes
timony. Martin's conviction, of course,
would not be possible.
Balden made two statements on cross
examination which will be used by the
tu a a basis of disproving; his credi
bility. First, he said he heard no re
port as of a revolver while standing
at First and Morrison. Then he said
there were no people on the street. The
state Intends to make an effort to estab
lish, on rebuttal, that a loud report, as
of a bursting automobile tube, was heard
about : o'clock and that there were
a number of people on the street at
that hour, although not in the immediate
vicinity of Wolff's place.
Prosecution Rest In Morning.
Deputy District Attorney Fitzgerald
rested his case at 10 A. M. after calling
three witnesses. H. Bruck testified that
the stitches made in repairing the gloves
In the case were made by hand. Detec
tive Hellver testified that the sum of
W1.50 was found in Martin's pockets when
arrested. Seneca Fouts. of counsel for
Mastin. was called to explain what be
came of this money. He said he turned
It over to Mrs. aiartin, on an oruer nuui
As soon as the state announced that Its
case was finished, Martin's counsel called
Charles Walby. a logger.- as one of the
first and most important witnesses. Walby
said he saw Martin the night before the
murder and that his face was then badly
marked and scratched. This was Intended
to offset the testimony of the barber
Phlllpps. who testified on behalf of the
state that he shaved Martin the night
previous to the tragedy and that there
wasn't a mark on his face. Walby, how
ever, said it was well along past dark
when he saw Martin.
Disposes or Marks on Martin's Face.
For nearly an hour and a half Walby
was subjected to cross-examination. Dep
uty District Attorney Fitzgerald went Into
his past movements for several months
past and It eeveloped that Walby's mem
ory wasn't any too good as regards dates.
He kept to the story, however, that he
saw Martin on the night of April 30 and
that his face was badly marked at that
Having thus disposed of the telltale
marks which adorned Martin's face when
he was arrested, the defense took up the
Incriminating circumstances of the gloves
and cravenette found In Mar'ln's posses
sion and said to belong to Wolff. S. M.
McElroy, a salesman, refuted the claim
that the coat in the case could be pur
chased only from Ben Selling. He said
that while there is a patent on such coats
yet the manufacturer in New York would.,
make up such goods for anyone supply
ing the cloth. He admitted on cross-examination
that the coat was identical to
the stock carried exclusively by SelRhig.
?. C. Bradley, head of a clothing house,
said that Dent's gloves, such as were
found In Martin's suitcase, are very
largely used. He added that the gloves
are also the source of continual complaint
and need frequent repairing in the seams.
He said that many pairs are mended
through his firm every month and that
this mending is done by hand. This evi
dence was Intended to offset Mrs. Wolff's
testimony to the effect that she mended
the gloves found In Martin's suitcase
while they were in her husband's posses
sion. Martin's Collar Popular Style.
Regarding the fact that Martin's collar
and the blood-stained collar left at
Wolff's Dawnshop are identical in brand.
size and style. Bradley said that his firm
disposes of 30 dozen Just such collars i
every month. It had been contenciea oy
the state that the collars were of peculiar
style but Bradley said such collars are
very popular and are worn by hundreds
John C. Hertz said that there are 1U0
or more manufacturers of overcoats in
the country and that it would hardly be
possible to tell whether two coats were
taken from the same stocK.
W. W. Robinson, a W ashington-street
clothier, gave even more positive testi
mony relating to the cravenette wnicn
Martin had when arrested. He said it
was a very ordinary grade and might be
secured from innumerable sources. As to
the collars, he said he sells at least 10
dozen of the same size, style and brand
John H. Beaver, bartender at tne lurn
Halle bar. then testified that Martin had
such a coat for months before Wolff was
urdered. Beaver said ho was certain
of what he said since Martin was in the
habit of frequenting the saloon at noon
time and would invariably lay his long
dark raincoat across the bar.
William Schultz. also a bartender at
the Turn Halle, said he too had noticed
Martin's raincoat. He said he served
Martin drinks dally and on several occa
sions had to push the coat to one side in
order to make more room on the bar.
Money-Lender on Stand.
For the purpose of showing where Mar
tin might have received the money taken
from him by the police, M. A. N. Ashley
was called. Ashley described himself as
a banker and produced memoranda to
show that during the month of. April he
loaned Martin the sum of JS0 on his salary
as a draftsman at the City Engineer's
Mr. Fitzgerald brought out on cross-examination
that Ashley charged 5 per cent
a month Interest and that the money was
advanced on salary that had not yet been
So that's the kind of a banker you
are," said the Prosecutor with biting sar
casm. "A banker who loans people
money on wages they have not earned
and charges them 60 per cent a year."
L. G. Carpenter, formerly a city detec
tive, was called to tell of Wolffs personal
characteristics. As a detective he had to
visit Wolffs place dnily for years, he
said. He had noiiced that Wolff had
rather large hands. When handed the
gloves reputed to have been the pawn
broker's Carpenter said he personally
could not wear such small gloves and that
Wolff had equally large hands. He said
also that Wolff was very high-tempered.
J. D. Dunn, a barber who knew Wolff
well, gave similar testimony as to the size
of Wolffs hands and the quality of his
temper. The defense then rested its case
for the day.
Martin in Ilappy Mood.
Martin was in rather a happy mood
yesterday, as was his wife, and both
smiled frequently at some lighter question
or answer in the examination of wit
nesses. During the afternoon Martin
busied, himself In assisting his lawyers
by making out subpoenas for witnesses
who are to be called today. During the
afternoon Circuit Judge Morrow entered
the courtroom and took a seat on the
bench beside Judge Cleland.
"That Judge's brother and I were fellow
officers In the Twenty-first United States
Infantry." Martin told his lawyers.
There, was another Incipient riot when
the doors opened for the afternoon ses
sion, at 1:45 P. M. Several hundred people
had gathered In the corridor and when
the doors were swung back all made one
wild rush, knowing that only those that
had seats would be allowed to remain.
Women, caught In the Jam. began scream
ing. District Attorney Cameron rushed
forward to help the doortenders hold the
crowd back. One persistent male indi
vidual talked back to the Prosecutor and
was gouged in the stomach after which
he fell back and the others went with him
for fear of similar treatment.
Mrs. T. 8. Wells, wife of the Court
Clerk, said she had overheard Attorney
Jeffrey instructing the witness Walby.
She said It was a "frame-up." Mr. Fitz
gerald said he might decide to call her in
rebuttal as Walby's testimony was of im
portance and was suspected of being
drummed up. Mr. Jeffrey said he was
merely examining his witness before plac
ing him on the stand, a process to which
he haa every right under the law.

Inauguration of System That Is Ex
pected to Simplify Service Is
Delayed TTntil After
Harriman lines In this territory will
uot be able to put the new uniform' bill
of lading: into effect November 1, as
was expected, but will Inaugurate the
new system very soon thereafter. The
blanks have not arrived from the East
ern headquarters, and until the sup
plies get here for distribution in this
State, me local rauro&as - cauuui iul
them Into use. Not only the Harriman
lines, but It Is expected all railroads
west of Chicago will adopt the new bill
of lading at once.
The uniform bill of lading. It la ex
pected by railroad traffic men, will be
adopted by all railroads in the United
States within a short time. It is ex
plained that at present there are In
numerable forma of these bills In use
all over the country. Almost every rail
road system varies this form, to some
extent at least, and It will prove a
great benefit to shippers to have the
different bills made uniform.
The new form was recommended by
the Interstate Commerce Commission
recently for -adoption by all lines of
railway in the country. Western roads
were the first to take It up, but It Is
said by railroad men that the Eastern
roads will practically be forced to
adopt the uniform bill as well, for it is
said It has been agreed upon by ship
pers' associations and representatives
of the Eastern railroad lines.
The uniform bill of lading was rec
ommended by the Interstate Commerce
Commission after a .public hearing
upon the matter, at which all interests
affected were represented. The bill was
prepared by a representative commit
tee of shippers and carriers, after many
conferences with banking and other in
terests. Under the new bill of lading, the
shipper may elect to ship goods under
its provisions, or he may ship under
carrier's liability, the, rates In the latter
case being 10 per cent higher. The bill
of lading provides various forms for
needs of shippers.
The movement for a uniform bill of
lading dates back some time. As early
as 1904, the carriers tried to adopt a
uniform bill, but certain commercial or
ganizations Died a protest with the
Commission, that resulted in a hearing
on the subject. The Commission stated
the subject was one palling for agree
ment between the shippers and car
riers. Committees were appointed some
years ago to adopt a form of bill of
lading, since which time there . have
been conferences between the commit
tees, while the "Commission acted in an
advisory capacity with a view to re
ducing differences to a minimum and
securing a successful outcome of the j
It Is believed by traffic men that the
result of the three years of negotia
tion between the shippers and the car
riers, together with the advice of the
banking Interests of the country, has
resulted In a document that Is as nearly
perfect as possible, and will commend
itself to every shipper.
The Interstate Commerce Commission
has made the following statement in
regard to the new bill of lading:
Its adoption, we are penmaded, will be a
long step toward unirormity, simplicity and
certainty. It will likewise be a long sup
In the direction of fair dealing between
shipper and carrrler- and it may be confi
dently expected tq remove much of the con
fusion which now exists and to measurably
avoid In the future the Irregularities and in
justice that have heretofore occurred.

I cure all diseases of men by methods of my
own devising. These methods are a radical de
parture from the ordinary medical practice,
which attempts to cure every ill of mankind by
stomach drugging and thus kills more people
than are cured. In my practice I do not drug
the stomach at all, but I apply healing medi
cines of my own directly to the diseased region,
and thus effect a complete and permanent cure
In a very short time. My treatment never fails,
as my unbroken record, covering a. period of
over 20 years, fully proves. Don't be practiced
and experimented upon by physicians, druggists,
electric belts and incompetent specialists.
My large practice and quick, thorough methods
enable me to cure Men's Diseases In half the
time and about one-fourth the usual fees asked.
My guarantee is:,
The Leading Specialist.
NOT A DOLLAR NEED BE PAID UNTIL CURED
NO STIMULANTS FOR "WEAKNESS"
Mv success In permanently curing that condition commonly known as
"weakness" fully demonstrates the absolute correctness of my method of
treatment, which Is a method employed by myself alone. I do not stimu
late the functions to temporary activity by the use of strong internal
medicines. This is the course commonly pursued by both general practi
tioners and specialists, and is a treatment that cannot possibly result In a
permanent cure. "Weakness" Is merely a symptom of chronic inflam
mation in the prostate gland brought on by excesses, early dissipation
or by the improper treatment of some contracted disease. A complete
and radical cure is therefore a question of restoring the prostate gland
to its normal state, and this I accomplish promptly and completely with
out the use of internal remedies. My treatment is a local one entirely.
It is original and scientific, and has been proved absolutely effective by
thousands of tests. I am convinced that by no other method can full
and permanent restoration of strength and vigor be accomplished.
' " CONTRACTED DISORDERS
The serious results that may follow neglect of contracted diseases
could scarcely be exaggerated. Safety demands an absolutely thorough
cure in the least possible time. I have treated more cases of contracted
disorders than any other physician upon the Pacific Coast. My cures
are thorough and are accomplished In less time than other forms ot
treatment require In producing even doubtful results. I employ reme
