Friend of Dr. Parrlsh Tells How

ST. LOCT8. March 2. (Special.) The
story of how Dr. J. G. Parrlsh. Jr., a
former St. Loulsan now living- In Portland.
Or., was fleeced out of J5000 by the. swindle
syndicate was unfolded today by J. M.
McKernan, member of the real estate
firm of McKernan & Mosby.
"On the night of November 21, 1906, Dr.
Fairish came to my house and said he
had a scheme to make money," said
Mr. McKernan. "He wanted, me to go
to New Orleans with him and a local
prizefighter and his manager. He told
me that one of the men had a particular
friend In New Orleans who was private
secrtary and treasurer of a million-dollar
land and mining concern whose members
were millionaires. Interested In sport. Ha
aid they had a fighter down there
named Gorman on whom they were
willing to bet a million. Dr. Parrlsh
said the millionaires would stand to loss
Scheme to Swindle Parrlsh.
"Dr. Parrlsh said all they wanted, him
to do was to take a draft along- for J5000
to show he was responsible. Dr. Par
rlsh finally persuaded me to go to New
Orleans and Investigate.
"Here Mr. McKernan told of going to
New Orleans, meeting the 'secretary' of
the prizefighting club, becoming con
vinced the 'secretary represented a gang
of swindlers who wanted not Dr. Par
rlsh's services, but Dr. Parrlsh's money,
and returning to St. Louis and advis
ing Dr. Parrlsh to drop the matter. Dr.
Parrlsh. however, went to New Orleans,
said Mr. McKernan, and got $5000 from
8t. Louis by wire.

"He met" the secretary and showed the
money and the fight was arranged," con
tinued Mr. McKernan. "The betting be

the St. Charles Hotel until they had ap
parently come to the end of their re
sources, when Dr. Parrlsh produced his
draft and made the last bet. The fight
took place Immediately in a small room
In a side street. Parrlah's fighter had
the other man all but out. when the
latter struck Parrlsh's fighter in the
stomach with his head. Parrlsh's flgtiter
turned a somersault clear over the other's
head and began spurting blood from his
nostrils. In describing it to me Parrlsh
"I saw that the man had been mortally
hurt and sprang Into the ring and ex
amined him. I was convinced he was dy

Dr. J. G. Parrlsh, Jr., formerly of the
Fiscal building, St. Louis, and at present
resident at the Hill, stated that he knew
nothing at all about the matter. "I have
never been connected with any prize
tight, whether fake or otherwise," tie
said. "There are two other doctors of
the same name and Initials at St. Louis,
one of whom is my father, but I believe
I am the only Dr. Parrlsh In Portland. I
came out here last Summer, later re
turning to St. Louis, telling my friends
that I had determined to settle in the
Northwest." Dr. Parrlsh stated that he
knew of no one likely to be playing a
hoax on him, although It was possible,
he admitted, that he had enemies who
would do so.
Dr. Parrlsh ,'s the only doctor of the
name in Oregon and has passed the ex
amination of the Medical Board. Polk's
Medical Register only gives three doctors
of the name of J. a. Parrlsh, all of whom
are residents In St. Louis, only one of
these being specified as Dr. J. G. Parrlsh,
Jr. At a later hour last night Dr. Par
rlsh declined to see an Oregonlan reporter

VICTORS ON RETURN TRIP
DALLAS BASKETBALL TEAM TO
BE HOME NEXT WEEK.
Players Who Have Won 63 Games
Out of 6 9 Will Probably Soon
With, up to date, a record of 63 basket
ball games won out of a total of 69, all
played against crack Eastern teams, the
Oregons return, to their home city, Dal
las, Wednesday, March 10, and will ,play
the Multnomah Club the following night.
The Oregons headed the State League
last year, under the title of Dallas, and,
when contemplating a tour of the East.
It was suggested that the business men
of that city take charge of the scheme
in return for the advertising that would
result. Loaded with pamphlets and mat
ter descriptive of the Dallas country, the
team left some three months ago, and Is
returning to receive an enthusiastic wel
come. The record that Multnomah has been
making has attracted the attention of
the former champions and their advance
manager has been anxious to arrange a
series of games at Portland and at Dal
las. The first game will be played on
the club floor Thursday, March 11, while
on March 13 a return game will be
played at Dallas. With the reputations
of both teams the games will likely draw
record "gates" in both cities, despite the
fact that they are played near the end
of the season. '
Friday night the Whiged "M's" play a
return game with Oregon Agricultural
College, under the Intercollegiate ruling.
The game will necessitate a trying trip
for the clubmen. They are required to"
travel from early In the afternoon to
9:30 o'clock, play immediately after their
arrival and spend the night on the return
Members of the O. A. C. team charac
terized the game Monday as too "lady
like" and promised the clubmen that in
the game at Corvallis, the rough work
allowed by the intercollegiate rules would
lose the day to the club.
Being accustomed to the rougher meth
ods of the Intercollegiate rules O A. C
will have the advantage in playing, but
the weight of the local five should ensure
a good showing, even if they do not ac
tually defeat the collegians. Manager
McCord is confident that the team he
takes up will win, stating that if the
college boys want rough play they shall
have all they desire.

O'Connell Demands Grand Jury
Investigation, and Berg
Pleads Not Guilty.
KING SAYS HE HAS PROOF
Will Bring Pour Men to Testify That
O'Connell Told Them How Match
With Berg Would. Result.
Square Deal Is Asked.
In accordance with a demand made by
Eddie. O'Connell yesterday afternoon, the
District Attorney's office has decided to
carry the wrestling imbroglio before the
grand Jury and allow that body to decide
whether or not the attacks made on
0Connell's methods, by Jack King and
Kid Parker, are liable to legal prosecu
tion. O'Connell demands a full and complete
investigation and defies King, Parker or
any one else to show anything question
able In the wrestling bouts in which he
has participated since coming to Portland.
O'Connell has arranged to bring Joe
Heinrich to Portland to refute Kid
Parker's assertion that this particular
match was a 'frameup."
John Berg has also entered into the
fray and has hired an attorney to handle
his interests in combatting the charges of
King and the others who allege that his
match was not on the square. Berg is
very angry .and for a time was inclined
to deal with . King personally, but his
better Judgment prevailed. Berar has
also written to the correspondent of Jack
King's who alleged that Berg was sent
out here by Mike Dwyer as "'Young
Peterson" for the purpose of trimming
his "Swede" friends.
No Money Lost by "Fakes."
One difficulty that appears to bother
the complaining witnesses is the fact that
no one seems to have lost any money on
the wrestling matches, or to have been
"worked" for any large sum as is usual
in a "fake" wrestling match.
In sporting circles the only censure
heaped on O'Connell seems to be relative
to his poor judgment in selecting his op
ponents, some of whom have been "easy
marks." Very few of the regular patrons
of the bouts charge the Multnomah in
structor .with deliberately "framing" a
bout. It is also generally believed that
O'Connell has shown good intentions by
finally agreeing to wrestle Con Albright,
the Rochester welterweight who has -demanded
and been accorded a match. This
match will come oft tomorrow night, it
Is definitely announced, and the advance
sale of seats Indicates the recent wrestl
ing tangle has been good advertising.
Some of the disappointed "pikers" who
wagered a dollar or two on Berg against
O'Connell are sore because of his failure
fo defeat O'Connell and these have joined
forces with Parker and the others who
are howling "fake."
The fair-minded sportsmen of Portland
take the view expressed recently by Dis
trict Attorney Cameron, who announced
that he did not place much reliance in
what Kid Parker had to say, but that
they would like to know Just how much
evidence Jack King has to warrant his
assertions. Last night King Issued the
King Says He Can Bring Proof.
I will submit my evidence before the
grand Jury in proper shape. 1 will nlso
bring before that body four reputable citi
zen of Portland who were informed by
Eddie O'Connell himself of how bin match
with Berg was to result. The names of
these mm I will not divulge now. They
will appear at the invest Igatlon. I hava
ny home in Portland and expect to live
here the rest of my lire. These men like
O'Connell and J3er,r are here for a few
months and are gone forever, and liave no
regard for the people of Portland other
than to take their money.
Some people say 1 am Influenced because
of a desire to share in the fronts of these
matches. This la a lie. for I have never
desired to be in any way connected with
the wrestling game, and anly consented to
act as announcer at a few oX the bouts be
cause I was asked to do so. I have never
asked anything for my services nor have I
ever been extended the courtesy of a pass
from the promoters. Since Mr. UConnell
goes to the length of classing me as a sore
head of the caliber of Kid Parker, I
am well satisfied that his alleged de-Ire to
have his matches investigated will come up
before the Multnomah County grand Jury
and then we will see who Is the honest man,
Kddio O'Connell or Jack King.
Berg Denies Charges.
Relative to his connection with the
alleged "frameup" with O'Connell,
John Berg last night sent the follow
ing statement to the Oregonian:

this talk of King Is wrong and every one
who has followed my career or watched

I have been engaged knows it to be wrong
I am going to make McCord prove what
he has said. Had King been a fair-minded
man he would have come to me first with
the letter and as a gentleman asked me
concerning it. In place of that he sought
to injure and destroy my reputation. When
I came here I ofTened to meet O'Connell
with a substantial forfeit on either side and
had friends who were willing and anxious
to bet. if they were allowed, as high as
$5000 upon the result. 1 believe I could
have beaten him. If I had been crooked

nor do fast walking even for exercise and
did but very little wrestling, as my foot
was too sore. When we got in the ring
O'Connell hung onto th-y. ropes, posts, and
at times, to the mat. and to the sides of
the platform. I was never given the same
hold-back, and In all about 15 minutes was

I shall remain here In Portland and make
It my home and I offer the statement
of facts which can easily be verified of
the kind and character of the man who'haa
attempted to belittle and debase me In the
eyes of the public. JOHN BERG
O'Connell himself made a statement
relative to the charges of King, in
which he demands a grand Jury inves
tigation and incidentally takes Deputy
District Attorney Fitzgerald to task for
certain statements purporting to be '
made by him in an interview. O'Con
nell's statement follows:
O'Connell Wants "Square Deal."
I want to appeal for fair play, for a
square deal. When I have denounced the
charges of fake wrestling as lies made out
of whole cloth by a lot of unscrupulous men
who want to play the crooked game them
selves, when I have openly challenged them
for proofs and have offered to throw the
whole bunch to prove- I have no need to buy
anyone off. is It fair for the Deputy District
Attorney. In advance of any action of the
grand Jury, to give out that I am a
swindler? That he has seen letters and
documentary evidence to convict me? and
that 1 and my supporters ought to be run
out of town? Is that the way to prepare
the case -for the grand Jury? ought a state
prosecuting officer to give out In advance
what he Intends to lay before the grand
Jury? Is it ordinary decent fair play? I
did go to the District Attorney's office yes
terday morning, not to beg off. but to insist
that this matter be laid before the grand
Jury. It has gone too far now lo stop.
I sm entitled to vindication and demand
a grand Jury investigation but I also state
that, while that Investigation Is going on
the Deputy District Attorney should not
arouse public opinion against me by state
ments which many people will believe be
cause of his official position, but which I
here brand as absolutely false. I chal
lenge anyone to bring forward any proof In
volving me In any crooked deal. It doesn't
eist. unless It has been framed up as a
conspiracy to get rid of me, and If there Is
such a conspiracy, the truth will preia!l.
This Is all a parcel of lies and I'll prove It
before any fair-minded body of men
Meanwhile. I ask the public, and I would
like to ask the Deputy District Attorney
and the grand Jury to remember that my
reputation for honesty la as dear to me as
It Is to any man. it is part of my stock In
trade, and that Is why this gang is attack
ing mo. They know a wrestler with a
crooked reputation la dona for. Let them
prove It. That's all I ask. I am entitled to
my good reputation till I am proved guilty.
B. J. O'CONNELL. t
EACH MAX IS WITH IX POUXD
O'Connell and Albright Both Fit
for Match Tomorrow.
Eddie O'Connell, welterweight cham
pion of the world, and Con Albright, the
Rochester whirlwind, are each within
a pound of the ringside weight, 145
pounds, and will step on the mat Jn
Exposition rink tomorrow night in splen
did condition. Albright, who has been
working at the Y. M. C. A., last night
pronounced himself In trim to travel
faster than any opponent O'Connell has
ever had in Portland. On their first
meetlrtg in Rochester last July they
wrestled two hours and ten minutes to a
draw. Both men were ready to quit
when the referee suggested that the bout
be stopped. Local fan are wondering
whether or not there will be a repetition
of the Rochester match.
Jim Campbell, who looks after the
managerial end of Albright's matches,
stated that he Is ready to wager any
thing from $300 to $1000 on Con's chances
Thursday night. Owing to the Tact that
O'Connell has beaten all comers, Camp
bell thinks O'Connell'a backers should
put odds on the pompadoured tumbler.
The rival grapplers had not agreed on
a referee last night. Joe Acton seems
favorable to both and the one-time cham
pion of them all will probably be the
third man on the mat. Joe has refereed
nearly all the bouts here and his work
has given general satisfaction. He
knows the game from A to Z and this
fact has made him a valuable man.

Joseph Capitalists Organize Light
Corporation and Pile on Water.
JOSEPH. Or.. March 2 (Special.) An

pany, and the filing upon all the surplus
waters of the Wallowa River just as
It leaves Wallowa I.ake. a mile from

furnish electric light and pouer not only
to Joseph but to the surrounding coun
try, as well. It is announced that this

WHEN THE KIDNEYS
To you ever feel that you stmolv
can't go any further that you must
have rest for that lame and aching
back relief from that constant dead
tired feeling freedom from those
stabbing, darting pains?
This is the condition that so often
comes at middle age, brloging with it
an extreme nervousness and irritabil
ity that makes others think you
"cranky" and "hard to get along with."
Likely your kidneys are worn and
tired and noed help. In any machine
there is one part that works the hard
est and gives out first. The kidneys
work night and day, removing from
the blood the uric acid and other
waste created by overuse of strength
and energy. Naturally a life of un
usual activity doubles the duties ot the
kidneys, and In time the strain teUs.
With healthy kidneys, one has a
good chance to live long, but weak
kidneys afflict old age with great dis
comforts. The back becomes bent and
lame, rheumatism is chronic, eyesight
falls, and too frequent or involuntary
passages of the urine cause embarrass
ment by day and loss of sleep at night.
Doan's Kidney Pills bring new
strength to old backs, and quick relief
to weakened kidneys. They banish
backache and rheumatic pain, and
regulate the bladder and urine. When
once a proper filtering action Is re-
oca oy m flasiers.
