Association Insists Contract Was
Xot Authorized by Directors, and
That . Salary Depended on
Success of Fair.
The stilt of W. H. W'ehrung against the
Portland Country Club & Livestock As
sociation was submitted to the jury yes
terday afternoon. A sealed verdict vas
returned at 6:46 o'clock last night. Mr.
Wehrung sued the association for $3000
ealary. The association officials contended
that the contract signed by the vice-president
had been unauthorized by the board
of directors and in violation of a verbal
agreement to the effect that if the. fair
"was unsuccessful Wehrung would not
demand full pay.
In Instructing the Jurors1. Judge. Cle
land. in whose department of the Circuit
Court the case was tried, told the jurors
that even though they found the con
tract to have been unauthorized, if Weh
rung entered into it' with persons who
assumed to sign it on behalf of the cor
poration, and carried out his part of the
contract with the knowledge of the offi
cers and without notice from them that
It was void, this would amount to it

how good or how poor a general man
ager Mr. Wehrung may have been," said
Mayor Simon, Julius I. Meier. J. W.
Bailey and Dr. Emmett Drake were the
witnesses called yesterday morning in be
half of the association, while EJHs Mc
Lean, William Davis and W. G. Brook
ings were called by Wehrung's attorneys
The Mayor said he drew the contract.

in it being furnished him by Wehrung. He

the meeting of promoters where a reso

probably the minutes were correct.
Mr. Meier testified that according to
the original agreement and resolution

than from the profits of the association.
A part of his testimony was ruled out
by the court.
Mr. Bailey criticized, in part, the man
agement of the fair, and Dr. Drake said
s. different arangement of the races
would have made a better fair. Some of
the same race horses were used in Port
land as in Salem, he said, mine persons
having learned at the fair there the
time they could make.
Messrs. McLean and Davis thought the
fair a good one, while Mr. Brookings
eaid it was well advertised in the Bast.
XEWSBOVS TAKE OWN RISK
Judge Bronaugli Charges Jury as to
Blame for Streetcar Accident.
"Newsboys who jump on and off mov
ing streetcars without signalling the mo
torman or conductor to stop are entitled
to no protection from the streetcar com
pany." said Judge Bronaugh yesterday
afternoon In charging a jury. "Newsboys
who jump the streetcars to sell papers as
sume all the ri-sks of ordinary negligence
on the part of the streetcar company's
servants, as they are trespassers, and not
entitled to protection as passengers. It
is not to be expected that the company
will keep a lookout to prevent boys en
tering cars without permission. If a
newsboy jumps on a car intending to
Jump off again without signalling -the
motorman. even though he intended to
pay his faro upon demand by the con
ductor, he must be regarded as a tres
passer. Of course, newsboys are entitled
to protection from wanton or willful in
jury by streetcar men."
This was a part of the instruction given
by Circuit Judge Bronaugh to the Jury
which tried the damage suit of Walter
Conle-. a newsboy, against the Portland
Railway. Light & . Power Company.
Through Elizabeth Bollam, his guardian,
he demanded $5000 from the company
because the motorman of a Fulton car at
First and Madison streets caused him to
fee thrown under the wheels by throwing
on the power when he was boarding the
car. He lost part of one foot. The acci
dent occurred in December. 1905.
T. J. Keenan. the first juror examined
at the opening of the trial, was chal
lenged for cause by Henry E. McGinn,
who, with W. M. Davis, represented the
boy. Keenan had said that he once
worked for the company, had ridden on
passes, and now hod a son in the com
pany's employ. When Judge Bronaugh
refused to excuse Keonan for cause.
Judge McGinn Intimated that it was an
effort on the part of the streetcar com
pany to "fix" the jury. He said that
nothing tended more to the spread ot
anarchy than distrust of Juries, and that
the public was learning through . such
circumstances as that to distrust them.
Judge Bronaugh excused Keenan after
Ralph V. Wilbur, counsel for the com
puny, had denounced McGinn's charges
as false. The case went to the jury at
4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
IKAVDCXENT DEEDS ALLEGED

Charge Made by Woman.
W. L. CTowe, a real estate broker, with
offices at 626 Board of Trade building.
Is in the County Jail, charged with
fraudulently selling three lots in Bandon
which did not belong to him. He was
arrested yesterday morning by Deputy
Sheriff Hunter. Annie Rhodes, the com
plainant, alleges that on October 22, last,
Crowe sold her three lots in block 1,
Riverside Addition to Bandon, represent
ing that they were 50x100 feet, when they
were in fact only 25x100. and that he
rep-esented that they were near the busi
' iiess section, when they were a mile
away. She said that she paid him $150.
and that he refused to return the money
when she demanded it, although the deed
phe says. Is worthless.
Oliver M. Hlckey. Mrs. Rhode' counsel,
declares that other women were led to
purchase Bandon property from Crowe.
Crowe advertised for a year as the Ore
gon Company, having offices in the
Wells-Fargo building. About a month
ego the name was changed to Crowe &
Co.. and the offices were moved to the
Board of Trade building.

looking for him.
A. L. Long, a son, alleged him incom
petent. The father had sold a farm in
Marion County for $5000. and the son was
afraid that he would lose it. Another
eon, Carl Long, thought the father-able
to manage his own affairs. Judge Web
ster decided the evidence Insufficient to
Justify Long's imprisonment. The man
is 66 years old, and a carpenter.
He told Judge Webster that his second
marriage lasted only 17 days, and that it
cost him $400 to rid himself of wife No. 2.

I'OfXDEB OF JOIOB REPUBLICS
CONSIDERING FLAJi TO OR
GANIZE REFORM INSTI
William R. George. Who Will VMt
Portland, March 17.
William R. George, founder of the
George Junior Republic Association,
will visit Portland March 17 and will
deliver a free address at the T. M.
C. A. that evening. In his address he
will go into the details of reform
work for young people. Mr. George,
who is the founder of the Junior Re
publics In New York, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania and California, is mak-
Ing a Western trip for the express
purpose of visiting the California re
. public. He is interested in Portland
; and Is considering plans to establish
''a republic here. He will examine the
situation closely and if enough inter
est Is taken. It is said, he will or
ganize a. similar institution here.
Mr. George has a Nation-wide repu
tation as a reformer of wayward chil
dren. While engaged In .business in
New York City between 1S0O and 1895
he devoted much time to the study of
social conditions, especially in rela
tion to children. He passed his Sum
mers in fresh air work, taking from
200 to 230 boys every year to Free
viile. New York. It is his contention
that if children are treated as
paupers they will become paupers.
After several of these Summer out
ings he organized the Junior Repub
lic in 1804 at Kreeville where the
children were cared for under a sys
, tern of self-government and self-support.
The next year he made the
work permanent and later established
branches in other Btates. Mr. George
organizes his republics on the theory
that a boy or girl may break a law
without necessarily ' being bad or
criminal and that the reform schoor
system Ib wrong in that it places the
boy who Is too full of mischief In
direct contact with the hardened
Dolph. John M. Gearin and B. B. Mc
Carthy being the witnesses. Each of
the four children, Walter J., Mary A.,
William J. and John F. O'Connell,' re
ceive $5000, half to be paid by the ex
ecutors when they become of age and
the remainder when they are 25 years
old. The executors also are directed
to hold $3000 in trust for James B.
O'Shea, Jr., to be turned over to him
as soon as they think he will apply
it for proper and useful purposes. The
rest of the estate is to go to the widow.
Judge Webster appointed F. C. Barnes,
Tyler Woodward and Joseph Forestel

son sustained a broken right leg. Now
he has brought suit in the Circuit
Court to recover $5000 damages from
Carl Shuholm and E. A. Freiberg, of
the Advance Construction Company. At
the time of the accident, last October,
he was assisting in the excavation for
the basement of the Silverfleld apart
ments, on Lucretla street, near Wash
ington. The company was negligent,
he alleges, in not boarding up the
trench, which was 10 feet deep.
Warnock Sentenced; Paroled.
il. D. Warnock. 21 years old, was
paroled by Judge Morrow In the Circuit
Court yesterday after being sentenced
to one year in the Penitentiary for selling
$175 worth of furniture which did not be
long to him. The young man married
three years ago, went to live in a rented
flat, and later sold the household goods
to a second-hand dealer. He thought he
could pay back the $175. Judge Morrow
left the condition of the parole with Dis
trict Attorney Cameron.
Divorce Granted to Mrs. Dowden.
Yesterday was not a divorce day, but
Presiding Circuit Judge Morrow decided
at the request of C. M. Ideman to hear
the suit of Kate Dowden against Caleb
B. Dowden without awaiting the coming

MOTHER SEEKS HER
BOY EAR EUGENE
Lad in Sawmill Town May Be
Long-Lost Cecil Brittain
of Walla Walla.
HOPES ARE AGAIN AROUSED
Strange Actions of Couple Arouse
Suspicions, and Detectives Learn
That Boy Resembles Lost
Child in Many Respects.
Another chapter in the celebrated Brit
tain kidnaping case, which has puzzled
the authorities and the public in gen
eral in Eastern Washington and Oregon
for the past four years, will be enacted
this morning when Mrs. R- L. Brittain,
the mother of the lost child, Cecil Brit
tain, will visit a sawmill camp near Eu
gene to determine whether or not a lad
in the possession of a strangely acting
couple in that vicinity is her son. She
arrived in Portland yesterday morning
from her home in Walla Walla and missed
the morning train to Eugene by a few
minutes and spent the day anxiously
waiting at the station until her departure
at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Mrs. Brittain expected to be met last
night at Fjugene by the party who has
located the child which it is believed is
her missing boy, and together with the
Sheriff they will go to the lumber camp
early this morning and she will determine
If it is her son.
It has been four years since the child
disappeared near the Toll Gate, a Sum
mer reeprt in the Blue Mountains, ijust
within the Oregon line, and some 20 miles
from Walla Walla, the home of the Brit
tains. The family had gone to the re
sort for a little outing, arriving just at
the close of the day. When set down by
the roadside the boy, Cecil, a lad of five
Summers; rushed to the commissary store
near by and purchased a bag of candy.
Fortune Spent in Search.
This was 'the last ever seen of him,
and the parents have spent a small for
tune chasing down false clues and rumors
from one end of the country to the other.
One or the other of them have traveled
to remote sections of the country on
all kinds of rumors of which have given
the slightest Insight into a single fact
that would lead to locating the child, if
alive, and there'are many who hold to
the opinion that instead of being kid
naped, Cecil Brittain merely wandered
off into the thick brush surrounding Toll
Gate and was either devoured by some
ferocious beast of the forest or etrayed
so far from human habitation that he ul
timately perished of hunger and thirst
and that some day his bleached bones
will be - found beneath some sheltering
tree or in some unexplored gulch.
Still, the parents hope and give eager
ear to every report that give; any prom
ise of locating their child. Mrs. Brittain
in discussing the matter yesterday said
she had almost lost hope herself, but the
description of the lad at Eugene under
suspicion -tallied so accurately with her
boy that in spite of other doubts she
Just could not resist the temptation to
go and see for herself.
It seems that the couple near Eugene
who say they are the boy's parents
have acted suspiciously exclusive since
they took up their abode at the lumber
ing camp, where the man is employed,
and the party who secured a picture
and description of the boy and took it
to the Brlttalns at Walla Walla feels
certain that the boy is not the child
of the people claiming him. Ha has
been attending a country school in the
vicinity of the mill and displayed a
freedom in discussing his travels and
past experiences which correspond most
accurately with, the early experiences
of Cecil Brittain.
Talks of Aunt in Walla Walla,
He claims that he has an aunt living
in Walla Walla, and that he had a little
Bister die there. The fact that the miss
ing boy had a little sister die the Sum
mer before he was lost and that he
grieved so excessively over her death
that the family physician Anally for
bid his parents to take him to' her
grave, even weeks after her death,
is accepted as a likely theory that he
was so Impressed with the death of his
sister that he never forgot her, while
he does not recall any other brothers
and sisters, when, as a matter of fact,
he has a brother who is older than
His claim that the woman in Walla
Walla is his aunt is also explained by
the presumption that his kidnapers
would no doubt undertake to make him
believe that they were his parents, and
his childish prattle, if undeceived,
might lead to disclosures that would
reveal his identity. In this manner
they would, therefore, lead him to be
lieve that his real mother was only an
By 10 o'clock today Mrs. Brittain
will no doubt have been able to satisfy
herself as to whether the child is really
her missing son, and if she can fully
Identify him the parties will at once
be placed under arrest by the Sheriff
of Lane County, who will accompany
her and the local detective who has
been working on the case, and in that
event the whole mystery concerning the
kidnaping will probably be unraveled.
While Mrs. Brittain was greatly Im
pressed with the minute description of
the boy and other details that had
been pointed out, she had been dis
appointed so often in the past that she
dared not express the hope that after
ell these years she was destined to ex
perience a mother's joy at finding her
THIS AGE JjT LUXURIES
It Is Considered in Relation to the
Cost of Living.
GLADSTONE. Or., Feb. 7. (To the
Editor.) I have been interested In the
various articles that have recently ap
peared in the newspapers and magazines
regarding the high cost of living, and
when the great number of "modern neces
saries" is taken into consideration, one
is almost led to believe that the con
sumer gets more for his money today
than at any other time in the history of
The poorest of us have a multitude of
articles today that only the rich could
have had a few years ago. One had to
be wealthy a generation ago to have a
servant, and to have two or three or
half a dozen, took a "top-notcher," a
genuine aristocrat. Nowadays, we all
have servants. Economists call it a "di
vision of labor," and it would be if so
many of us didn't take a mean advantage
of the division.
The good housewife of today, no mat
ter how limited her means, looks upon
the grocer's boy. the butcher's boy, and,
in far too many instances, the laundry
man, as her servants, which, indeed, they
are. and she pays for their services when
ever she pays the grocery bill, the meat
bill and the laundry bill. She goes to a
department store to buy her little girl a
dress. Three hours are spent in selecting
the goods. Her bill Is for the dress goods,
plus the salesman's salary for three
hours, and in most cases there must be
added to this the cost of delivery.
Many a man with a very low salary
must have a servant to shave him. an
other to shine his shoes, another to mani
cure his nails, and so on for a dozen
other things that he could do for him
self in the same time at little or no cost.
Tet, he has no account in the savings
bank, because he tells us the cost of
living is so high.
Now, just a word about the cost of
delivering groceries. This cost might be
somewhat reduced by grocers selling the
goods without taking into consideration
the delivery, and then in cases where
delivery was desired, a reasonable
amount could be charged for such serv
ice. As it is now. it is just as cheap to
have groceries delivered six times a
week as once a week. While the gro
ceries might cost as much, the cost of
delivery would be whatever the consumer
chose to make It. MRS. S. A. R.
PARLIAMENT AND HOPS
E. C. HORST SAYS ENGLAND
AVIUCi PUT ON A DUTY.
Therefore, He Declares, the Hop
Acreage of America Must Be
IX)NION. Jan. 24. (To the Editor.) The
Parliamentary elections now beiny held are
of great Importance to the , American hop
growers, and while the free-trade parties
are being: returned to power, their majority
is so greatly reduced that- only by their alli
ance with the Home Rule and Labor par
ties have they a majority over tlje Tariff
party, and so great has been the change of
opinion of the people of England on the sub
ject of free trade that It Is certain that at
the next election the protectionists will win
and -one of the first items that will be put
on the dutiable list U hops, as the hop
growers have taken so prominent a part In
the tariff campaign.
The brewers throughout England. Scot
land, Ireland and Wales are all In favor of
& tariff and are co-operating with the hop
growers and all other industries that want &
tariff, so when the question of a high tariff
on hops comes up there will be no one in
Interest to oppose it.
The brewers here are so overtaxed that
they see no chance ot relief till the Govern
ment adopts some other policy to raise the
vast revenues necessary and the tariff is the
only policy that offers revenue In a way to
relieve the brewers and other overtaxed in
dustries. It is generally believed that the tariff
party could have won in this election had
the sole issue been between free trade and
protection, but there were so many other
entirely different subjects that influenced
the voter that the elections do not show the
strength of the tariff reformers.
The voting here is not done on the par
ticular issues, but solely on the candi
dates themselves, and where the questions
at issue are many, and all have to be settled
by a single vote, by a. vote for one of two
candidates In the field, it is easy to see that
the real opinion of the people on any one
of the many subjects cannot be shown by
the result of the ballot.
'In this election, for instance, some of the
questions at issue are: Shall land values be
Increased for taxing purposes ? Shall Ire
land have home rule, and what sort? Shall
England keep up the present policy of in
creasing the navy? Old-age pensions; free
trade or protection; and a bit of woman's
Had the vote been simply between free
trade and protection, there is no doubt in
my mind but that protection would have
won by overwhelming majorities.
The present Parliament now being elected
promises to be short-lived, as the free trad
ers have no majority and they must com
bine with the Irish Home Rule party and
the Labor party In order to have a majority
over the Tariff party.
Elections to Parliament are not held at
regular Intervals like elections to the United
States Congress, and it is possible for par
liament to dissolve Immediately after con
vening and thus have another election with
in a few months.
The general opinion here is that the Par
liament now elected will run much less
than a year, and it at the next election the
tariff reformers are elected, and this is most
likely, they can put a tariff on imports
'within a few weeks after they -are elected,
as they take office immediately after the
elections are over.
Under the circumstances It is more than
possible that a duty will be placed on
hops Imported into England before the end
of this year, and If not this year, it is rea
sonably sure that It will be put on next
There is every prospect that a duty on
American hops shipped Into England will
be a heavy one and that will lose to the
American grower the only foreign market
America has ever had for the American
surplus. The result will be that the Amer
ican hop acreage must be further reduced
from its already low mark, as the present
American acreage is more than sufficient
for the American hop consumption.
The American grower Is fortunate In hav
ing had the duty on foreign hops Into Amer
ica raised to 1Q cents, as Germany and Aus
tria will also be shut out of the English
market by an English duty, and aa Germany
and Austria produce large surpluses for ex
port, there will be extraordinary pressure by
those countries to ship their surpluses into
With a high tariff on hops into England,
the American hopgrower must shut all the
foreign hops out of America in order to
have a home market for a full crop on the
present American hop acreage.
E. CLEMENS HORST.
If Mr. Worst will read T. P. O'Conner
letter irv The Oregonlan, he will find that
protection Is a dead Issue In England and
that neither this year nor next will any
duty be levied by the English government
on American hops or other commodities. The
purpose of the letter seems to be to Induce
the growers of Oregon to reduce, the hop
acreage of the state. If, as he says, the
present American acreage is more than suf
ficient for the American hop consumption,
then let Mr. Horst, who is the largest Amer
ican hopgrower, plow up some of his yards.
The Oregon growers have found the hop
crop fairly profitable and they propose to
stay In the business.

Secretary Giltner Returns With
New Ideas From California.
After attending the annual convention
of the Associated Chambers of Commerce
of the Pacific Ooast at San Francisco
one week ago, and spending several days
inspecting the commerlcial exhibits of
other Southern cities, E. C. Giltner, sec
retary of the Portland Chamber of Com
merce, has returned.
Mr. Giltner arrived in Portland yester
day morning and immediately called a
session of the board of trustees to con
sider the employment of an expert agri
cultural and horticultural professor, to
preserve and arrange the Oregon exhibit
In the Chamber of Clmmerce. This was
primarily the reason for hie ten-day
trip to California. It was decided to se
cure the services for 15 months, com
mencing April 1. of H. B. Wight, who
has had charge of California's exhibits
at the various large expositions of the
country for the past ten years.
A fund of 510.000 is now being raised
to arrange the best exhibit of the state's
products, including every variety of fruit
and cereal and flower. Mr. Wight is one
of two men on . the Pacific Coast who
are proficient in the art of preserving
flowers. He will give particular atten
tion to roses.
For the payment of $50 per month each
county in the state may maintain an ex
hibit' in the Chamber of Commerce. Here
tofore the various counties have not been
charged anything. At Los Angeles, how
ever, that is the rule, and in order to
help bear the expense of maintaining the
exhibits this charge will be made here in
the future. The Chamber of Commerce
will process the products sent here and
provide space for them. The $50 per
month will amount to only a small itenv
of the expense.
Another new feature - of the exhibit
will be secured from the Oregon Agricul
tural College. It will include a practical
scientific demonstration on the extermi
nation of insects.
One of the questions discussed at the
San Francisco convention concerned the
proposal to send a commission represent
ing Pacific Coast commercial organiza
tions to China next Fall. Robert Dollar,
of the Dollar line of steamships. Is now
in China arranging for the visit.

no season would seem complete without

TALKS ON TEETH
BY THE REX DENTAL CO.
Who Is Who and Why?
When Bradstreet or Dun are askeJ
for a report on a merchant they gener
ally g-o direct to that merchant for a
financial statement and usually sret the
facts. No man knows better than he
(the merchant). If you have been pay
ing your Tailor A, $30 a suit all your
life for clothes worth $20. and Tailor H
offers $40 suits for $40, you would hard
ly go to A -for Information regrardlnK
B"s $40 suits. Then don't go to other
dentists expecting to learn the truth,
about the Hex Dental Co.'s hiprh-clasa
dentistry. The ethical man who has a
fair practice will condemn the Alveolar
method on general principles, because
he happens not to know anything?
about it. An innuendo, shrupr of the
shoulder or sardonicai smile on his in
tellectual vlsape (condemnation) Is his
answer. The other fellow, the bargain
counter artist, hs plenty of time to
elucidate. He'll tell you all about it,
the impossibilities of such a thing as
Alveolar dentistry. If you really want
the best to be had in dentistry, come to
us. It will cost you nothing. We will
show you samples counterparts of
original cases being worn by well
known people of this city. We will
show you the Alveolar teeth in the
mouth or being put in, as at all times
we have one or more patients in our
offices having work done. Then get a
list of some of our patients who have
had Alveolar dentistry done by us.
Many of them are among the best .
known people of this city and state;
each and every one will tell you that it
is satisfactory in every way looks,
comfort and service.
If you have two or more teeth in
either jaw, whether solid, sound or
loose makes no difference. We will re
place each 'missing tooth, giving you
back your full set of teeth without the
use of a plate, partial plate or so
called bridge, and we will defy anyone,
dentist or layman, to tell them from
perfect natural teeth. The work will
be permanent; it will outlast the pa
tient. REMEMBER In addition to our Spe
cialty of Alveolar iJentlstrv (restoring
Lost Teeth) and curing Pyorrhea
("loose teeth") we are experts in every
branch of dental work. Poor dentistry
is expensive at any price. The very
best is the cheapest in the end. We
urge upon you the necessity of having
