WRANGLE OVER EVIDENCE
Attorneys on Both Sides Flpht About
Admission of Testimony Inter
preter Has to Be Secured
for Russian Witness.
Although Judge Morrow ruled in
favor of the defense yesterday morn
ing that the gaeptpe with which Jack
I. Rose assaulted John Chong. a Chi
nese tailor, may not be admitted in
evidence, the state has succeeded in
placing before the jury practically all
the evidence connecting La Rose with
the assaults on Max Hermann and
Chong. Even though the Court should
rule out the t -timony given by Her
mann and B. Tonken. it is the belief
of the attorneys for the state that the
Impression caused by the testimony has
had its effect upon the mlndB of the
Jurymen, and that it will be almost Im
possible for them to disregard It to
tally In rendering their verdict.
A large part of the time yesterday
was consumed by the attorneys In ar
gument over the admission or exclu
sion of evidenre. The trial was fur
ther hindered when It was found ne
cessary to call an Interpreter for Ton
ken, who. speaks Russian. leputy Dis
trict Attorney Fltngerald and John
ljgan and Max Cohen, special etisinsel
for the state, succeeded In placing be
fore the Jury the testimony of Max
J-lermann and Tonken relative to the
Hermann assault May 11 as well aa
that of Chong. Conrad Peterson. Jot
llover and Police Captain Moore.
Discussion Over Identification.
Hermann said yesterday afternoon
hat La Rose beat him on the .head
with a bludgeon wrapped In paper.
This was a piece of solid Iron, about
which a red handkerchief was first
wound, the paper being tied over tins.
The witness was asked to explain
how he came to point out C. W. Wag
ner as his assailant, afterward naming
La Rose. He replied that after the as
sault he could not see plainly, but that
when his eyesight had improved he was
able to Identify La Rose. He said that
he could tell that there was a difference
in the clothing worn by Wagner and
that worn by the man who hit him.
In arguing over the introduction of
this testimony Attorney lister V.
Humphreys, for the defendant, said La
Rose was taken before Hermann as ho
lay 111 at the hospital, four days after
the assault, and that after the wounded
man had looked the prisoner over for1
five minutes, he said In the presenoe
of nurses and police officers that La
Rose was not the right man. Attorney
Humphreys said that the fact that Her
mann afterward named I -a Rose as his
aallant leave room for argument
that Hermann shaped his identification
to suit the wishes" of the police.
Kiinsiun Identifies I. a Ho.
' Tonken said that he saw La Rose
standing in front of Hermann's store,
w hich Is near Hyman Neuman's place,
en Mar 11. a shor.t time before the as
sault. The witness said that he went
to Hermann's pie with a pair of rub
bers, and that he talked to Hermann
as they stood near the door. La Rose
he said, was carrying something, which
might have been a gaspipe. under his
coat. He said he never saw La Rose
before that, and that the next time he
hi him was about six weeks ago in
the County Jail. He stated that he
picked him out from about six other
prisoners, all being lined up In the Jail
corridor. Asked if the policeman and
Hermann, who were with him. assisted
In the Identification, he answered in
the negative, asserting rhat he took
the lead and that they followed. It is
the contention of the defense, however,
that Tonken would not have been able
to pick l-a Rose out but for the assist
ance of Hermann, who talked with
Tonken In Russian.
When Judge Morrow decided yester
day morning that the gaspipe might
not be placed In evidence, the state
placed John Chong. the Chinaman, on
tlie pterin-for the third time. In a vain
effort to Tjet the gaspipe before the
Chi unman Testifies Again.
Chong said that on May 13 I .a Rose
entered the tallorshop of the Celestial
at SIS Ankeny street, saying that he
wanted a suit of clothes. Chong said
he asked La Rose what he was doing
with the gaspipe. and that the latter
replied that he was wroklng for the
gas company. The Chinaman aald that
as he turned to remove the clothing
from a shelf La Rose struck him over
the forehead, following this blow up
with six others.
Conrad Teterson. a sign painter, said
that he was railing at an Ankeny.
street office to collect a bill when he
saw the Chinaman and crowd running
after I .a Rose. He said he followed
the man into a Burnslde-street saloon,
knocked l-a Rose down and sat on him.
He testified yesterday that La Rose,
w ho had been drinking, said something
like. "I wish I had killed him." Then
the witness heard someone call out.
"Let him go. He didn't hit anything
hut a Chinaman."
Polk-e Testimony Damaging.
On cross-examination Peterson ad
mitted that he weighs but 140 pounds,
while' la Rose Is a muscular specimen,
weighing 200 pounds. Peterson said
he would not have been able to hold
l.a Rose except that he had been drink
ing. Joe Plover, special agent for the
O. R. A N. Company, corroborated Pet
erson's testimony In essential points.
Police Captain Moore testified that
la Hose was taken to the police station
on the morning of May 13. after as
saulting Chong. and that the Chinaman
remarked, "lie try to kill me."
The police captain said la Rose ans
wered. "Yes. you . I thought
I had killed you. I've knocked over a
number of your kind, and I didn't think
when 1 left you that you would ever
roine here to identify me." It is be
lieved that the defense wtll offer sub
stantial testimony to refute that of
The state will call but one more wit

Cat. At the present time mails to and
from that point are transmitted by way
of San r"ranclsco. This matter was taken
up two years ago, when bids were asked
for covering this service, but the bidders
failed to qualify. At the present time
there are two steamers running on this
route, and there Is little doubt but that
the matter can be adjusted so that Port
land will have direct mail sen-ice with
Kureka and other coast points. The
Postoffice Department will also be asked
to provide additional service for Coos

thought some arrangement can be made,

PREJUDICE, SAYS LIGHTER
COCXTY COMMISSIONER FLAYS
GRAND JURY rXR REPORT.
Also Attacks Sheriff Stevens In Dis
cussing Dispute Over Care
That the October Grand Jury yielded
to prejudice in rendering that portion
of Its report relative to Kelly Butte,
the County Jail and the Sheriff's office,
waa the charge of County Commissioner
W. L. Lightner yesterday. He said he
could place no other construction on
the report except that the Grand Jury
la either In favor of graft on the part
of the county officials, or Is dissatis
fied with the manner In which Judge
Webster has conducted the affairs of his
office, and has vented its spleen on
Commissioners Lightner and Barnea as
well as the County Court.
It la a well-known fact that the
Judge has frequently left the affairs of
his office in the hands of his clerk,
Mr. Shaw, for weeks at a time, while
he was awav acting as counsel In cases,
both In Portland and In other parts
of the state. At present he Is out of
the city acting as attorney In a murder
trial. Commissioner Lightner said: '
Daring the time ths October grand Jury
was in seseion I did not broach the subject
of county affairs fo the members except
when I was called upon, for I do not think
It looks well for a county official to court
favor from a srand Jury. 1 was called in
within C4 hours of the time for adjourn
ment to tall about the work of the Com
missioners, and about sfTalrs at Kelly Butte.
When I had finished they were unanimous
in tha opinion that tha prisoners now held
In tha Countv Jail by the Sheriff, or at least
tha larger part of them, nhould ba placed at
work at the Butte. There ta no reason In
tha norld why thie ahould not be done.
But In that ona day' tha Jury turned
axalnat ua. and rendered a report lauding
Sheriff Stevani for the manner In which he
haa conducted the aflTalra of hia office and
tha Jail, and crUlcieln. the Commissioners.
If 1 wanted to retaliate there are things In
tha conduct of SfTalrs In the Jail of which
I have been aware for soma time, which
ahould not have been permitted. But I did
not mention them, and do not think it is
neceeaarv to do so now.
Tha sheriff deserves no extraordinary
credit for keeping tha County Jail clean,
for be has nine trusties to do tha work,
and compared with Kelly Butta but very
little mud i tracked In. Out there the men
are at work all day and It la next to Im
poaslble to keep the place clean.
Tha arand Jury nlso says: "We Indorsa
their BURgestion fthat of tha preceding
grand Jury) that portable tablea should be
provided to do away with the present ob
jectionable practice of uetng beds for
tablea during meal tlmea and also thst the
county ahould furnish for tha use of the
all white enameled ware tSble dishea. snd
also knlvea and forka In addition to the
epoone now used.
But whv should the eounty be caUed
upon to furnish theae things when tha
Sheriff feeds the prisoners. If the county
waa feeding them I should be In favor of
carrving out tha grand Jurya sugsestion.
With his salary and tha graft that goes
with it Sheriff Stevena Is making about $.10
a dav. The county la paying as much now
for feeding tha prisonera aa It did during
Jailer MltcheH'a time. At that time the
prisoners were receiving two meals a day at
IT cents, of 38 cents a day. They are
now receiving three means at 124 centa. or
3714 centa a day each. Further than that
SherlfT Ptevena triad to get tha bill for tha
feeding of prisoners through tha I.eglata
ture at 20 cants a meal, which would have
further Increased the graft.
Tha grand Jury had better look out or It
will ba brought In for grafting. It spent 4
dsys In doing the business of the county,
which might have been dona in ten days.
Tha grand Jury goes on to praise tha
Sheriff for the excellent manner In which
tha taxea have baan collected. But It la tha
lawa which bava brought about this good
condition of tha county finances, rather
thsn tha activity of the Sheriff's office.
Further down in the same paragraph the
grand Jury recommends thst the Sheriff's
office be moved to the north of tha east
entrance of the Courthouse. I can see no
good reason for the change, although I
know that the Sheriff haa desired it for a
long time. It is certainly of no disadvant
age to him to use tha hallwsy to the pres
ent office, snd to have the tax department
Hi its present location; while tha large

the ends of the car One corner of
this the conductor takes his position. The only entrance to the car
so that all passenger, entering the car must pass the conductor. In this
jir.n. hetween the
mnk It almost imperative to have that
office In an accessible place. For my part
I am not in favor of spending any more
mnnov than Is absolutely necessary on this
old building. The last two grand Juries have
already recommended an outlay of t.lnn.OOn.
I realize the needs of the county, but we
must not go Into debt to supply these needs.
The grand Jury goes on to criticise the
n.na- in -hih Kellv Rutte has been
conducted. The report says: "In the first
place the fare was passable, but none too
good. Some days better than others. When
it ! ik.n Into consideration thst theae In
mates are hard-worked from morning until
night, through rain or shine, they are at
least entitled to all they want to eat and
of a good, wholesome and substantial char
acter On the'dav of our visit no fault could
be found with what we aaw. but we were
told' by several of the men that the day'a
dinner was above the average."
The trouble at Kelly Butte la that the
men who are being worked there are "sore"
because there are so many loafers Idling
awav their time at the County Jail. The
grand Jury also criticises the commissioners
because some of the men are scantily
clothed. It Is net policy for the county to
provide clothing for every hobo who is sent
out for ten days' time from the Municipal
Court. If thla should be done the city would
be overcrowded with loafers. The grand
Jury went on to state thst the place was
not kept clean. It Is almost an Impossibility
to keep It neat and trim when the men are
at work in the mud all day.
It would appear that the grand Jury is
criticising the Commissioners because the
prisoners In the County Jail are not being
worked. There ia no reaaon why they
should not be worked at the Butte, except
that Sheriff Stevens does not turn them over

No remedy that does not entirely remove the cause of Catarrh from the
blood will ever make a permanent cure of the trouble. Just as long as the
circulation remains contaminated with the impurities and catarrhal matters
which produce the trouble, the mucous membranes or inner linings of the
body will be kept in a state of irritation and disease. Sprays, lotions and
other local applications will sometimes temporarily relieve the tight full
feeling in the head, buzzing noises in the ears, uncomfortable, stuffy feeling
of the nostrils, and help to loosen the mucus in the throat; but Catarrh is a
constitutional blood disorder and until it has been entirely driven from the
system there can be no permanent cure. S. S. S. cures Catarrh by removing
the cause from the blood. It attacks the disease at its head dtad by thor
oughly purifying and cleansing the circulation, and ridding it of every par
ticle of impurity, and at the same time enriching the blood, allows the
inflamed and irritated membranes to heal, improves -the general health, and
stops every disagreeable symptom. S. S. S. reaches down to the very
bottom and leaves no trace of the disease in the system. Book on Catarrh

never In a fight before." King said, after
he had been released from the Police
Station. "But because I opposed Kava
naugh at the last election, this deputy.
Grant, haa used his position on the
grievance committee of the Bar Asso
elation to persecue me. They charged me
with appearing in court drunk. The
charge has fallen flat and now they have
canvassed the Worcester block, where my
offices are located, asking the tenants If
I was ever seen drunk or misbehaving
myBelf. They even went to the Janitor
and wanted to know If he had removed
bottles from my office. I've got an income
of $150 a month, and I am willing to do
nate it to the city for a few months In
order to have the privilege of thrashing
this man. If he ever draw a gun on
me I'll kill him."
"King Is very much mistaken," Mr.
Grant said. "I've done nothing against
him and do not want any trouble with
him. His idea that I started the dis
barment proceedings is a mistaken one."
WANT MONEY OR WORK
Needlework Guild Sends Ont Appeal
Requests , are made by those in
charge of the Needlework Guild for
various articles of wearing apparel.
It is urged upon those who may be too
buBy to comply with the request, that
they send money with which garments
may be purchased. The Needlework
Guild distributes garments to charita
ble institutions throughout the city

far in excess of the supply.
Among the articles especially needed
this year because of the heavy demand
are men's and women's underwear,
comforters and other articles. Those
who are able to do so are especially
urged to send -new garments for old
ones, in many cases, are not available
for various reasbns.
It is urgently requested of those
who intend contributing to this charity
to do so either today or tomorrow, for
there are only tw'g days of the cam
paign remaining. Articles or money
should be sent to the Unitarian Church,
Seventh and Yamhill streets, either to
day or tomorrow from JO o'clock in
the morning till 5 in the afternoon.
