S.- G. REED REPLIES
TO EVERY CHARGE
Asserts He Has Been Faithful
as Administrator of H. W.
DETAILED ANSWER FILED
In Suit Brought 1' Widow, Banker
Peclares He Has Not Sacrificed
or Neglected Valu
Samuel G. Reed, whose removal as ad
ministrator of the estate of H. W. Goode
was asked early last Fall by the widow.
Kdith F. Goode, f.lcd an answer to Mrs.
Goode's complaint In the County Court
yesterday in which he refutes the var
ious charges made In the petition for re
r.ioval. The answer was presented by
Mr. Reed's attorneys, Malarkey & Gam
mons, and gc-s lr.to detail as to his con
nection with the estate up to this time.
Date for hearing of the case has not yet
At till o:tFet, denial is made of the
ci-arge that Mr. Heed, as administrator
of the Goode estate, I.as even been un
faithful to his trust or that he has not
diligently performed all duties required
of Mm in accordance with the law. The
various allegations made by Mrs. Goode
In her petition are then taken up one by
one and gone into exhaustively.
Explains Release of Options.
As regards the charge that he failed
properly to handle the options held by Mr.
Goode on 13o0 shares of Portland Rail
way. Light & Power Company common
stock. Mr. Reed sets out at the time these
options matured the stock was far be
low the price of a share, which had
been set. He accordingly, regarded it
as a transaction greatly benefitting the
estate when he succeeded' in having the
contracts cancelled by J. and V. Solig
man Company and E. V. Clark & Com
pany. As to 500 shares of stock which Mr.
Goode was to roc. ive July 1. KU7. for his
services as head of the company. Irre
spective of his salary, it is pointed out
that the agreement relating to this
Mock was that he got It only in the
event of being with the company when
the stock became transferable to his
account. His death several months be
fore that I. me invalidated the agreement,
it is pointed out Hence, the adminis
trator is unable to secure any such stock.
It is admitted that these contracts were
not inventoried or reported on. but It
Is set up that Mrs. Goode consented to
the disposition made of the 1.X shares
and It is denied that she ever applied for
Stock Deposited on Debt.
As regard the Gobde indebtedness of
Vj.m with the United States National
Rank for which the Portland Railway.
Light & Power Company stock was de
posited as collateral, Mr. Reed sets out
that the collateral was turned over to
him by the bank In order that he might
realize a, sum sufficient to meet the ob
ligation. He was to hold it subject to
demand by the hank. After he had found
it was not possible to dispose of the stock
to advantage, he returned it to the bank,
at the demand of the bank.
With reference to the charge that dili
gence was not used In the matter of .hav
ing an inheritance tax fixed, the answer
maintains that a petition to the County
Court to have the tax fixed was duly
presented and that the amounts named
In the petition were true and not based
on any purpose of having a larger inheri
tance tax llxed than necessary.
As to the efnrgo that lie would not
pay a small outstanding note fdr $2000
Held by the Bank of Oregon City. Mr.
ltee.1. sa-3 that Inasmuch as there was
a note for J75.000 held by the United
states National Bank, a note for an
other 75.0O due the First National
Hank, and something like JIR.0U0 due
Chnrk-s Pratt & Company of New York,
the Oregon City Rank's claim had to be
paid pro rata, according to the Indebt
edness of the Goode estate to each of
the creditors named. He denies having
any authority to pay the whole of the
claim at Oregon City or any part of
the claim other than a pro rata share.
Auto Was Badly Damaged.
As regards the allegation of Mrs.
Goode that Mr. Goode's big touring car
was sacrificed by the administrator, Mr.
Reed avers that the car was operated
by unskilled persons after Mr. Goode's
death, and that as a result of Mrs.
Iloode'-s failure to take proper care of
the machine it was Imdly damaged. The
sum of $ir75 was the largest sum ho
"could get for tiie machine, tha answer
says. And before that could be had
the sum of $76 had to be siient on re
pairs. Referring to the sale of S5 shares of
stock in the Sunset Real Estate Com
pany. Mr. Reed denies that these shares
were sold at a disadvantage. He sets
up that the stock was heavily encum
bered with mortgages and that the in
come from the property was insuffi
cient to pay the interest on the mort
gages. In selling it, with the full con
sent of petitioner, Mr. Reed saya the
sum of $4500 was cleared above ".he
amount paid by Mr. Goode for tha
Admits Opening Private Vault.
In explanation of the fact that Mr.
Goode's private vault was opened and
examined immediately after his death,
the answer shows that this was done
iiy Frederick V. Holman nnd Mr. Iteed
in the presence of witnesses and cn a
telegraphic request from personal
friends of Mr. Goode's at Atlantic City,
5. J . where he died. This ivas done
in order to ascertain if any provision
had been made in his will as to the
disposition of his body in event cf
death, and also If there were interests
of the widow and children whicn might
suffer from delay. All papers and
documents and articles were immedi
ately returned whero found, after an
inventory was made, it is shown. De
nial is made by Mr. Reed that he ever
refused to give Mrs. Goode information
concerning the contents of the vault
and safety deposit boxes.
Concerning his long absence In New
York and Massachusetts, Mr. Iteed says
he was away on business relatfng to
the estate. In conclusion the answer
sets out that the interests of the estate
are being fully safeguarded to the best
interests of Mrs. Goode and her two
children. Edith Goode and Henry F.
Goode, As to resigning as administrat
or he says he offered to withdraw, pro
vided a satisfactory settlement .-f all
matters concerning his administration
of the estate could be effected.
Talks of Sunday Schools.
Rev. -C. A. Phlpps. state secretary of
the Multnomah County Sunday School
Association, was the chief speaker at the
rally and conference of West Side Sun-
dav- schools, held In the Grace Methodist
Church yesterday. In the afternoon he
spoke on "Mv Class." and last night on
the "Relation of Organized Classes to
"The first Sunday school class I ever
had." said Mr. Phipps. "was one of 13
girls. I married one of them. The most
interesting class of boys I ever had was
picked up on the street. I organized this
class of 17 toys lnt the Get Knowledge
flub. Turn were brothers of a saloon
keeper in the town . When I announced
that one of them would sing a solo, the
saloonkeeper and his brother closed the
saloon for the night and brought their
aced mother to church In an arm chair."
Mr. Phipps said last night that class
organization solves the big boy and. girl
problem. "The organized classes of men
and women are the magnets that will
attract the boys and girls." said Mr.
Rrv J. T. Ahbett, speaking on "Evange
lism. How Often Should I Urge De
cisions on My Class?" said teachers
should work with class members as in
dividuals. The pastor's chief work is
not to evangelize, but to train teachers
to do that work." 1m said.
Rev. C. W. Merritt spoke yesterday
afternoon on "Presenting the Wesson."
Last night his subject was, "The Teach
er's Opportunity and Responsibility." A.
F. Flegel told last night of tha mission
and needs of the association. W. R.
MDDELL PUTS OUT WAY
OUTLIVES PROGRESS LTO THE
Repentance, Faith and Baptism the
Three Steps, Declares Lecturer
at White Temple.
Every seat in the White Temple was
fllled again last night to hear Dr. N. N.
Riddcll lecture on "From Adam to
Christ." Robert Livingston acted as
chairman and presided over the round
table. The lecturer gave the definite steps and
psychological changes necessary in mak
ing the transition from the natural to
the spiritual man. The speaker spoke in
part as follows:
There are thres distinct steps Into the
spiritual kingdom. Flrut, repei.tance ; whole
hearted sorrow fur sin with the resolve that
you will not do so any mure. If you have
thoroughly repented you will square up. If
vou have beaten a man out of $5 you will
go and pay it back. Next after you have
squared up with men you mast square up
with God. Tou have baten him cut of your
life. Tn make restitution you must render
a life of service.
Second, believe tn the Lord Jesus Christ
as "the way." the truth and the life that
is to come in and make your sin-sick soul
whole. He Is "the truth" o; ihe incarnation
of God. He is "the life" the divine life
whifh is to sui.plojnent the human by sub
stituting his fur yours, thereby transform
ing you and making you one with the father.
Why must you do this? Because you per
sonally cannot evolve yourself Into a spirit
ual being. If Jesus I'hrist has healed
vnu of all sin. you will love everybody, you
will hold malice to none. If you love Christ
on one side and have gru-lse in your heart
niralnst your neighbor on the other side you
are not completely regenerated, and I do
not care how high, up you n.ay be in the
church. . ,
The third step of Inltatien Into the spirit
ual kingdom Is baptism. We often produce
a purely psychic and spiritual condition by
a purely physical means. Water baptism is
Ond's method whereby you express your
surrender of yourself to Qod. From that
hour en you will forever turn your back
upon nil that Is sinful and waik as tha
ciilM cf God.
Tonight Mr. Ridtlell will speak on "God,
Faith and Prayer."

TIKES HER LIFE
Mrs. Henry Peterson, Over 50
Years Old, Hangs Her
self in Despair.
MARRIED LESS THAN YEAR
Woman, De-inondeht and Nearly
Blind, Leaves Patlietic Letter
After Receiving One From
Husband la Farewell.
Heartbroken because she had been de
serted by her husband, Henry Peterson,
a veteran soldier of the Civil War, and
despondent because she was going blind,
Mrs. Emma Peterson committed suicide
yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock by
hanging herself with a piece of clothes
line to a doorpost in her home near Car
son Heights. Her body was found a few
moments later by Mrs". George Wey, one
of her neighbors, who, aware of the
woman's despondent condition, had come
over to the Peterson house to console
A short time before her tragic ' end
Mrs. Peterson had been seen out in the
yard in the rear of her house. She took
down a piece of the clothesline and, pick
ing up a nail keg. went into the house.
She fastened one end of the line on the
doorknob, slipped the other over the up
per hinge of the door and, fastening the
other around her neck, kicked the nail
keg from under her.
Before Mrs. Peterson committed the
deed she took a little jewelry she pos
sessed and. puttfng it in a small box,
placed it on top of the following letter
which sho wrote to her sister, Mrs. E.
W. Eldridge. route 2, box 40, Lents, Or.:
"My Dear Sister I will write you a few
sad lines. From what I can see and'
hear he has left me for good and it is
more than I can bear. I think the best
thing I caa do is to end it all. Every
thing about the house mocks me. I
want you and your children to have what
I have. If I could have my eyesight it
would be different but as it is I can't
be consoled, so good-bye for we shall
never meet again."
Coroner Norden was notified, and dur
ing the afternoon Deputy Coroner Dun
ning went out to the scene of the tragedy
and brought the woman's body to the
undertaking establishment of Dunning,
McEntee & Gilbaugh.
Mrs. Peterson was over 50 years old
and her husband had parsed his 60th
birthday. They had been married less
than a year. Mr3. Peterson came from
Iowa and her husband, who always had
evidenced a roving disposition, had been
traveling about the country for a num
ber of years. He draws a pension from
the Government for injuries received In
the Civil War.
Neither had been married before, and,
although the heads of both were silver
streaked, it was the one romance of their
lives. They were married in Iowa and
came to Portland, where they bought sev
eral lots beyond Carson Heights, near
the Multnomah, station on the Salem
Electric line, and built a four-room
Apparently their lives had been happy
until the sudden desertion. Mrs. Peterson,
who had been troubled with approaching
blindness, went to visit her sister, Mrs.
Eldridge. last Thursday. During her ab
sence the wanderlust, which is said al
ways to have characterized her husband,
came over him. and he left home. He
sent her the following letter:
"Dear Wife I will not be over on Sun
day. I am going away, so good-by. We
may never meet again. God bless you."

ing and Organization.
For the organization of a permanent
Commercial Club and the purchase of
grounds and a building, costing about
$5000. C. L- Daggett. H. A. Ruble and T.
C. Shaw were appointed at a meeting of
the North Albina Push Club Monday
night. This committee was instructed
to negotiate with J. H. Nolta for the pur
chase of his two-story apartment-house
on Klllingsworth avenue, near Patton
avenue. The. object of this movement is
to secure and open a first-class club
house in that po.tion of the city, under
the charge of a strong Commercial Club,
with a large membership. It is pro
posed, if Mr. Nolta's building can be se
cured, to proceed at once with the or
ganization of the club. Mr. Nolta said
that he would do all he can to promote
the success of the movement.
The park question was discussed by J.
H. Nolta, C. I Daggett. T. C. Shaw
and H. A. Ruble, and much bitterness
was expressed over the action of the
Park Board In favoring purchase of a
large tract at Mount Tabor, over 100
acres, and only favoring ten acres in
North Albina. Offensive billboards also
were discussed and It was the opinion of
the meeting that effort should be made to
eliminate them from the neighborhood,

is reported to be on the West Coast, al
though Lloyds and the Maritime Regis
ter give her as being in the Mediter
ranean. ' ,
The British ship Inverness-shire, which
has been on the disengaged llFt on Puget
Sound for eight months, has been fixed
for outward loading at either Seattle or
Tacoma. The upward tendency of the
grain market has spurred some of the ex
porters to action. The Inverness-shire Is
the first spot ship to be taken for North
western loading since the French bark
Desalx was fixed two weeks ago for Port
land loading. The February fleet from
Portland will he short. The month will
wind up with the clearance of the La
Tour d'Auvergne and the Desaix.
The French bark Mlchelet has been
chartered to load pig iron and bricks at
a port in Scotland for Puget Sound. This
is the first fixture for Inward cargo for
several days. The placing of the French
craft on berth, however, will probably
mark the beginning of a number of char
ters at the other end. The vessels placed
on berth in March will be due off the
Columbia River or the Straits the latter
part of August and will be available for
new crop grain.

When thousands of women say that they have been
cured of their ailments by a certain remedy, does this not
prove the merit of that remedy ?
Thousands of women have written the story of their
suffering and have told how they were freed from it by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for thirty
years these reports have been published all over America.
Without great merit this medicine could never have
gained the largest sale of any remedy for woman's ills
never could have become known and prized in nearly every
country in the world.
Can any woman let prejudice stand between her and that
which will restore her health? If you believe those who
have tried it you know this medicine does cure.
Read this letter from a grateful woman, then make up
your mind to give Mrs. Pinkham's medicine a chance to
Brooklyn, If. Y. "I am a firm believer in Lyrtla E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound. I was a prreat sufferer f rora organic
female troubles for years, and almost despaired of ever beiriff
Well asrain. I bad bearing-down pains, backache, headache
and pains in my abdomen, and tried Mrs. Pinkham's Compound
as a last resort. The result was astonishing, and I have used it
and advocated it ever since. It is a great boon to expectant
mothers. I have often said that I should like to have its merits
thrown on the sky with a search-light so that women would
read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their sufferings.
" My husband joins me in its praise. He has used it for Kidney
trouble and been entirely cured." Mrs. E. A. Bishop, 19lo
Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, N. Y.
For 30 vears L,ydia E. Pinkham's egetable

female ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
