had been ahot. had rushed to the cor

away, to notify potrolman Hunn. the

it a distinct disappointment to the
stata. so much so that on redirect ex
amination Special Prosecutor Davis'
questions were United with a aua-srea-tlon
of savagery. Bunn said that
when ha arrived at the .Marked store
entrance. Hicks was standing with hla
back aa-alnet the alas" on the west
ldr of the entrance alcove and waa
'acini; In a general northeasterly dl
ectlon. This, when considered In con
nection with the testimony of C. A.
Blsrelow. another witness, relative to
the place where the empty shell was
found, tends to bear out the contention
of the defense that Hicks waa closer
to the door of the atora than Wortman
nd waa on the defensive, not the ag
gressive, when the shot waa fired.
Sir. Blatlow testified that tha shell
was found by a clerk the morning fol-loa-lna;
tha shootlne. from 7 to 9 fret
Inside the store and to the east of the
door. Patrolman Bunn. who later waa
qualified by the defense as an expert
on firearms, s.ild that an automatic
Pistol such a Hicks used throws an
empty shell from It almost at rlcht
ancles and aa great a distance as from
six to elsrht feet. This fits in with tha
theory of the defense to the extent
that It shows that the shell could not
posalbly have ejected to the Interior
f the store, had Hicks shot with his
arm extended and from a position
closer to the street than that occupied
liy Wortman. as contended by Special
Prosecutor Davis. Tha shell may have
been Inadvertently kicked to the posi
tion where picked up. As before re
lated. It was not found till the morn
ins: "after the killing and many per
sons were attracted to the stqre by the
Ittaraeya la lash.
Bunn did not know If there was
more than one bullet left In th- ma ra
il ne from which the. fatal bullet was
bred. Ie had taken the gun from
Hicks, but had not examined It critl-rsll'-.
When Mr. Malarkey started to
oarMlon him concerning what hap
pened after he arrived al the scene, a
vigorous objection was drawn from
Mr. Davis. In the argument before a
ruling on the objection Mr. Davis re
ferred to Mr. Malarkey a "continually
quarreling and scolding.
The attorney for the defrnse read
an exception to the remark Into tha
record, contending that It was preju
dicial. This angered Special Prose
cutor Davis still more and he made
another remark, lo which another ex
ception was promptly read Into the
record bv .Mr. Malarkey. Mr. Davis
then suggested to the judge that, to
save time. Mr. Malarkey be allowed
a blanket exception to ail his (Davie!

.'o the fact tbat there was a slight dif

terday as compared with a statement

court's time In emphatically protesting

Mr. Malarkey thereafter referred to

Attorney lalarkey was reading from
an Oregon Supreme Court decision In
the case of the state against Ye Gong,
a case- in which he said he had been

The reference of Mr. Davis to Pa
trolman Bunn as "Civil 8ervlce Com
missioner logan'a police officer came
after the defense had offered, through
Mr. Malarkey. to agree upon Bunn as
an expert to shoot off the revolver and
take observations relative to the ejec
tion of the shell. The prosecution
stated Its refusal through Mr. Davis,
"When we wish to select an expert
we will select one for ourselves and It
will not be Civil Service Commissioner
Logan's police officer."
Both Mr. Mulsrkov and Mr. Logan,
who In also appcarlna for the defend
ant, objected to the remark as Insult
ing to the witness and Mr. Logan, and
Judge Gatens, as is usual. Instructed
the Jury to disregard the statement
of Mr. Davis. Theroafter, on redirect
examination, Mr. Davis treated the
policeman as an adverse witness and

"Are you here as special prosecutor
to suppress evidence, beneficial to the
defendant?" Mr. Malarkey asked the
private prosecutor once when Mr. Davis
objected to his line of cross-examination.
Mr. Davis Indulged In sarcastio
remarks when the shell found In tha
Markell store was produced bv Mr.
Logan, who was given It by a cterk,
employed n the store a day or two
after the shooting. When the defense
offered It In evidence Mr. Davis made
no objection, remarking that he was
"glad to get It away from Logan."
Mr. Malarkey off-red, but was not al
lowed, to prove that Tatrolman Bunn
was requeued but refused to swear to
an information charging Hicks with
first-degree murdr. He contended that
he had a right to show It for the pur-por-e
of proving that Bunn had not
been influenced In giving his testimony
by the presence of Mr. Logan as SH

LIQUOR ft 1 A N SENTENCED
BARTENDER ORDERED TO JAIL
FOR SVNTMY SALES.
Derelict "Bootlegger" Gets Off With
Fine, bnt Man Who Gave Him
Goods to Sell Is Convicted.
Despite an obvious attempt to make
a derelict "bootlegger" the principal
defendant and get him off with a min
imum fine, John Erickson, a bartender,
was convicted in Municipal Court yes
terday of selling liquor on Sunday, and
drew the first prison sentence Imposed
by the court in this class of cases. He
was sentenced for SO days, and gave
immediate notice of appeal.
Jim Addington. a floater, was arrest
ed by Patrolmen Sherwood and Miller
after he had supplied them with a bot
tle of whisky. When pressed to re
veal the source of his supply, he led
the officers to Erickson's room, at
Third and Salmon streets.
No difficulty waa made in convict
ing Addington, the attorney who ap
peared for both men entering a plea
of guilty with the understanding that
the minimum fine would be imposed.
This was agreed to, and he was sen
tenced to pay $100.
Then Addington was put on the stand
to testify against Erickson. despite the
objection of his attorney that he was
an accomplice. It was held that the
transaction from Erickson to him was
a separate offense from the one be
tween him and the officer, and he was
allowed to testify.
Addington told a remarkable story
to shield Erickson; that the bartender
had Instructed him to help himself to
the whisky and knew nothing of his
taking it out to be sold. The court re
fused to believe this story, and im
posed a prison sentence on Erickson.
The police regard the case as an Im
portant one, because, they say, most of
the ignorant, destitute men who carry
on the Sunday traffic on the streets
are merely distributers for other men
like Erickson, who deposit the supplies
of liquor In their rooms before the
closing period and issue it out to their
agents without appearing personally in

It has been the duty of the clerk of
the Supreme Court to prepare the ques
tions which are given at the state bar
examinations and to examine papers.
While in the past the examinations
have been considered rather "stiff." he
believed that with the co-operation of
the leading figure of the State Bar
Association the questions could be of
such a nature as to assure a greater
standard of efficiency and that this
standard could be increased from ex
amination to examination.
Judge Pipes has consented to hold a
conference either here or in Portland
with Judge Moreland in the near fu
ture, when the series of questions will
be outlined and plans made so that the
examination of students, while being
conducted by Judge Moreland, as in the
past, will be also with the assistance
of the Bar Association of the state.
