It Is reported that five Chinese have
slipped into Portland, coming from

ity of having consulted the Immigra

ths Wells-Fargo Interests filed a bond
for Ms safe delivery out of the United

doubt fa'l Into tha clutches of the of
ficers. They are ssld to have made
the journey over the Southern Pacific

country he merely satisfied himself
with taking their word for It that they
were not heading for Portland to par
ticipate In threatened Tong riots. Tha
Government has dealt several severe
Mows to persons directing the smug
gling of Chinese across the border from
Mexico, but all avenues of escape can

AUTO RATES FOUGHT
Charges for Shipment of Cars
Are Called Excessive.
ALL COAST IS CONCERNED
Interstate Commerce Commission's
Examiner Takes l"p Plaint of
II. L. Keats Company Dis
Automobile shipments to every termi
nal point on the Pacific Coast are in
volved In tha heamg before K. I. Vas
sault, special examiner of the Interstate
Commerce Commission, in the Commer
cial Club building yesterday. In which
the H. U Keats Auto Company raised
the contention that the present less-than-carload
rate is excessive, that it
prohibits the movement of automobiles
to other than the large distributing
centers, that It creates a monopoly of
business In tho large cities and that It
Is unreasonable in comparison to the
E. M. Cousins, attorney for tho
plaintiff. Introduced evidence Intending
to show thaf a low carload rate and a
high "L. C. L." rate confine business to
one market and that in effect they are
a discrimination against the leader In
suburban districts. The testimony
showed that Portland automobile con
cerns ship automobiles into this city
In carload lots, at the rate of $3 a hun
dred pounds, and that they distribute
them In all parts of Oregon. Idaho and
High Rate Attacked.
The relationship of the rate, on auto
mobiles, and the rate on other similar
oommodltles. he contended. Is not proper
and contrary to the decision of the
Commission In the case of the St. Louis
Business Men's organization, in which
It was held that the less-than-carload
rate should not exceed the carload rate
by 50 per cent. The present less-than-carload
rate from Eastern manufactor
ies to Portland Is 17, which Is 133 per
cent higher than the carload rate.
Representatives of the O.-W. R. N.
Co. and the North Bank Road, through
their attorneys, produced testimony
based on tha contention that an auto
mobile is a luxury and that It Is not en
titled to move under the same rates
that other vehicles do. .They ridiculed
the Idea that the rate on an automobile
should be baaed on the rates made for
wagons and carriages and those for gas
engines. They also pointed out that an
automobile when shipped in a car with
other merchandise demands a large
amount of space and that it causes a
Iroa Char gee Also Up.
Tha examiner started late yesterday
afternoon to take evidence In tha case
of the Security Vault Metal Works,
represented by A. J. Partington. The
plaintiff contends that tha rata on cor
rugated iron Intended for use in bridges
and culverts should ba So cents for
every 100 pounds, which Is the rate for
bridge material. Tho carriers say that
such shipments should ba classed as
corrugated iron "not otherwise speci
fied, for which the rata la 5 cents.
C. A. Foster, secretary of the plaintiff
concern, occupied the stand until ad
journment. Hearings will be resumed
at o'clock this morning.
Tha case of Page A Sons against tha
Southern Pacific Company was dis
missed because the prosecution did not
put in an appearance.
SERGEANT'S SIDE HEARD
POLICEMEN PKAISED COLE AS
CLEAX, DEOLAKES OXE.
Conversations of Patrolmen Who
Confessed Grafting: Are Cited.
Instructed Verdict Refused.
R. C. Scott, the first witness called
by tha defense In the Cola case yes
terday, testified to various conversa
tions had with Patrolmen Larfleld and
Fuller, confessed "grafters" from
omen of tha underworld. In which tha
policemen are alleged to have said that
they never knew Sergeant Cola to take
Tha witness also testified that he was
In an adjoining room In Mr. McAllis
ter's offices when Patrolman Larfield.
In conversation with Mr. McAllister, Is
eUleged to hava said that he knew Cole
to be honest, but that ha (I-arfleld) was
In bad" with the city administration
and had to testify against Cole to save
himself. Scott testified that In this
conversation Larflcld said that he
would not take the stand for either
side and that Mr. McAllister warned
Larfleld that If he did testify for tha
state he would be cross-examined about
tba conversation they were then hav
ing. Tha same witness said that in com
pany with Patrolman Fuller ha visited
the disorderly houses conducted by AJ
11a Bell and Violet Martin and that both
these women said they had never given
Cole any money, ona of them remarking
"The old fool doesn t know enough to
take money." Fuller admitted on the
witness stand that ths visit waa made
and that ha heard "some such remarks."
Both women swore that they had re
peatedly given Cole money and had
given money also to tha patrolmen.
Tha case of tha state closed with tha
testimony of Patrolman Larfield and
Bess'e Dean, the woman saying she had
been an Inmate of the house of Allle
Bell, from whom Cole Is charged In the
Indictment with having taken money.
and that Sergeant Cole had allowed tha
place to run unmolested for months at
Larfleld said the money he collected
from disorderly women amounted some
times to $30 a week and that he gave
It all to Cole, sometimes getting back
S3. 13 or 15. Cole, he declared, told
him that the money waa not for protec
tion, and be believed It. The witness
testified that he waa never told to give
any of the money to Cole and also that
Cola sometimes "kicked because tha
district waa not producing mora money.
Tha money. Larfleld said, would be
dropped In his pocket, laid on a table
or handed him quietly. He testified
that he urged Cole to make a clean
breast of the whole affair to ths Chief.
but had been met with refusal.
Judge Morrow overruled a motion for
an Instructed verdict.
CASE DROPPED BY GATENS
flnrrard Charge Xot Dismissed by
Judge Morrow, as Reported.
The indictment against A. J. Garrard.
accused of leading astray Bessie May
Wood, aged 17. waa dismissed by Jndge
Gatena and not by Judge Morrow. Re
seating tba published statement that be
had dismissed the case Judge Morrow
yesterday had his clerk unearth tha
order of dismissal. It bears the signa
ture of Judge Gatena and is dated
February 1. Judge Gatena ceased to
be presiding Judge on January 31 and
Judge Morrow assumed the duties for
a few days while Judge Kavanaugh,
next In the line of succession, was oc
cupied with the Wilde case.
The case waa one which should come
properly before the presiding judge and
the action of Judge Gatens In signing
the order of dismissal after his term
had expired is unprecedented. The
order sets forth that Bessie May Wood,
the complaining witness, and Mrs.
Helen Stratton. her sister, had de-clared-thelr
unwillingness to go further
with the case.
"It seemed strange to me. In view of
the aggravated nature of the case and
the great deal of publicity which it
obtained, that I should have dismissed
the Indictment without remembering
It," said Judge Morrow. "For this rea
son I had my clerk look up the order
and was pleased to find that my mem
ory had not played me false."
"Judge Gatens kept throwing cold
water on this case right along." said
Deputy District Attorney Fltsgerald.
"I do not believe that Justice should
be trifled with In this manner. I do
not say that any ulterior motive
prompted the dismissal, but what is the
use of having criminal courts If cases
are to be so disposed of 7"
When Interviewed by an Oregonlan
reporter Thursday night about the dis
missal Judge Gatens said that the ques
tion of dismissal had been presented
to him by Deputy District Attorney
Mlchelet and that he had refused the

CHAMBERLAITS COUGH REMEDY
PRAISED BT ALL,
"It's the best medicine I ever saw"
and "It can't be beat" is what my cus
tomers say of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, writes Albert Beard, of
Fowler, 111. Mr. Beard also says: "All
of my customers pralsei Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy very highly."
This remedy haa been sold In Fowler,
I1L. for many years. Mr. Beard's cus
tomers have used It on many oocastons
and are thoroughly acquainted with Its
good qualities. Let anyone who Is
troubled with a cough or cold use it
and he) Is certain to be pleased with
the benefit he derlves from tt-
PREVE.N TABLE DISEASES.
Fully one-third of the deaths are duo
to preventable diseases. This Is a tre
mendous waste of human life. One of
the greatest destroyers Is pneumonia.
It always follows a cold. Give tha
cold the attention It deserves and pneu
monia may ba avoided. Tou never
heard of anyone who used Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy having pneu
monia, and millions of bottles of that
remedy are sold every year. Pneu
monia is undoubtedly a germ disease,
and this remedy cleans out the cul
ture beds that form in the throat and
bronchial tubes and develop the germ
of that disease. Tou will find no batter
remedy for a cough or cold both for
adults and children. '

by methods that
have been In constant use and have
always failed for half a century. They
dose the system with powerful stimu
lants and tonics, calculated to restore
nervous force or strength that is not
and never has been lacking, with the
result that the functions are tempo
rarily excited to the positive detriment
of the patient. Weakness is only a
symptom, resulting from many local
conditions, and Is curable by local
treatment only, without the giving of a
single Internal dose. which demon
strates the absolute accuracy of my
understanding and treatment of this
disorder. In years I have not met
with a single failure, and I have en
tire confidence in my ability to cure
all cases that come to me for treat
ment. I am equally certain that no
treatment other than that which I have
perfected can completely and perman
ently restore strength and vigor.
NO MONEY REQUIRED TO COM

have no confidence in their doctor, be
cause he demands pay before a cure
has .jeen effected, and there are many
who have been misinformed about
their condition or through unsuccess
ful treatment have become skeptical
and think th.re is no cure for them.
I want an opportunity to treat such

the financial part, as I accept pay for
my services as benefits are derived;
when I am satisfied the patient is re
