Chief Slover and Reed Also
Show Little Concern in
Bribery Charge.
Br lief Is Expressed That Cameron
Thinks It ' Impossible to Prove
Criminal Intent Attorney
Asks for Quick Action.
With smiles -on their faces. Mayor
Rushlight. Chief of Police Slover ami
Captain of Detectives Baty yesterday
stepped forward as their names were
called in Presiding Judge Kavanaugh's
private office and entered pleas of not
guilty to an indictment charging them
with offering a 00 bribe to Deputy
District Attorney Collier. Similar pleas
were made by Frank Reed and Clifford
"W. Maddux, discharged policemen and
co-defendants of the three officials.
"Your honor, this is the time set for
receiving the pleas of A. G. Rushlight,
E. A. Slover, C. E. Baty. C. W. Maddux
and Frank Reed." said Deputy District
Attorney Mlchelet.
Attorney Malarkey. representing
Mayor Rushlight. Chief Slover and Cap
tain Baty. stepped forward and said
"Not guilty' for all of them. His cli
ents remained quietly in the back
ground. Official Little Concerned.
We desire personal pleas In this
case." said Michclet, and Judge Kava
naugh motioned the defendants for
ward. Each said "Not guilty" and then
turned and left the room. The expres
sions on their countenances, particu
larly those of the Mayor and Chief, in
dicate that they do not take the charge
against them seriously.
After the three principal defendants
had left. Reed and Maddux were called
forward ' and said "Not guilty." Dan
Powers, their attorney, when asked in
advance of the pleas as to a rumor that
they would admit the offense, said:
"We'll never plead guilty to anything.
Always make them show their hand.-
Mr. Malarkey renewed his demand for
an Immediate trial for his clients, de
claring that the official positions they
hold make It Imperative that they
should rest under a cloud no longer
than possible. In the camp of the de
fendants there seems to he a disposi
tion to believe that District Attorney
Cameron will move for the dismissal of
the Indictment when the date of trial
arrives, the contention being that it
will be Impossible to prove criminal in
tent. Some authorities hold, however,
that the act itself Is sufficient proof of
the Intent. " '
Docket Sow Crowded.
Judge Kavanaugh at first said that
the docket Is now 30 cases behind and
that it would be impossible to set the
trial earlier than the Sebtember term of
court. TCater he agreed to hold a con
ference with the defendants' attorneys
tomorrow morning, the understanding
being that an earlier date will be ar
ranged if possible.
Mr. Malarkey." said Judge Kava
naugh, apparently in all seriousness, in
the corridor before he took up the ses
sion of court. "I have arranged. In view
of your demand for an Immediate trial
when your clients were arraigned yes
terday, to have your case go to trial
"Goodness Bakes!" exclaimed the at
torney. "It will be Impossible for us to
get our case in shape so soon."
Judge Kavanaugh had a good laugh
mt the attorney's expense.
Association and United Church Folk
Recommend Action.
Representatives. including ministers
and laymen, numbering over 100, from
the Evangelical Association and the
United Evangelical churches, unani
mously declared at a banquet Tuesday
night at the First United Evangelical
Church. Ladd's Addition, that the two
branches should unite without further
delay, and this sentiment was embod
ied In strong resolutions, which were
adopted unanimously. These resolu
tions will be sent to Llnnwood. Ohio,
where the subcommissioners of both
general conferences will meet July 30
and 31 to decide on basis of union.
Rev. C. C Poling, pastor of the First
United Evangelical Church, who has
been working for organic union, and
who is a commissioner of the general
assembly, presided and spoke for union.
Rev. H. Hornschuch. presiding elder
for the Evangelical Association, deliv
ered the main address for organ I a
union, and gave eight reasons why the
two branches of the Evangelical fam
ily should unite. He pointed fut that
there is no valid reason why they
' should remain separate.
Rev. G. L. Lovel. of Salem, spoke for
the United Evangelical churches, and
declared that the sentiment in .that
branch is overwhelmingly favorable to
union, and he pointed out that It ought
to be brought about at once, in order

Judge Tazwell Settles Diet and Drink
Question by Fining Chinese.
The question of whether a sandwich
constitutes a meal was decided once
and for all by Judge Tazwell In the
Municipal Court yesterday when he
found Chin Hlng. proprietor of the
Pekin Restaurant, guilty of selling
liquor without a meal. A fine of 1100
was Imposed, and sentence was sus
pended. .
Several times in the last year 'the
"Municipal Court has been called on to
determine whether a sandwich was a
meal. In every case the decision was
that a meal was not a sandwich. .In
the first Instance the ruling was not
upheld in the Circuit Court where the
case was carried.
Twice the proprietor of the Pitts
burg Grill was haled into court, and
the ease was decided against him.
When the Pekln Restaurant case came
up Judge Tazwell requested both
Deputy City Attorney Sullivan and
Judge Thomas O'Day Xo submit briefs.
The briefs were submitted several days
ago. and after reviewing them, the
court sustained the contention of the

Little Difficulty Expected la Fixing
Status of Northwestern Elec
tric Company.
The street committee of the Execu
tive Board tomorrow will hold its reg
ular meeting, and probably will discuss
valuations for streetrar and electric
lighting franchises. These two 'fran
chises are now before this committee,
which Is composed of W. H. Fitzgerald,
R. O. Rector and K. K. Kubll.
It Is believed that the committee win
have little difficulty in fixing a valua
tion for the franchise of the North
western Electric Company, which seeks
the opportunity of selling electric light
and power in Portland. Jt was passeo.
up to the Executive Board by the Coun
cil last week, and, blank spaces were
left for the gross earnings percentage
to be exacted. On' this account and
because representatives of the company
have expressed willingness to pay
whatever the city deems fair, it is be
lieved that the committee will require
little time in reaching a decision. Aside
from the gross earnings tax, it is said
that the company probably will require
no tax on this franchise, as it also con
tains a provision giving the council the
right to regulate rates, regardless of
whether the rates of any competing
company are regulated simultaneously.
The so-called stuD-ena irancnises ior
the Portland Railway. Light & Power
Company also are before this commit
tee. They have presented a more an
flcult problem, as they do not contain
any fare-regulating clause, other than
the general provision of the city char
ter. It has been rumored for some
time that a majority of the committee
would recommend a high valuation on
this account. Chairman Fitzgerald has
xa.irf that he would favor a nominal
valuation had the Council inserted a
clause reserving the right to regulate
fares, but that, otherwise, he would
favor a high valuation.

Carey.Says Roosevelt Did Not

Colonel's Campaign Badly Managed
by Hot-Headed,' Pugnacious and
Unreasonable Advisers, Thinks

"Mr. Roosevelt's cry of fraud and
thievery is political buncombe. His
defeat was not due to fraud, but was
the result of bad campaign manage-
ient, tactical blunders, lacK or com
mon sense and the action of hot

Such was the assertion of C. H.

certainly would ha'e received.
"Mr. Roosevelt, I believe, could have
won the nomination if he had gone
about it In the right way." said Mr.
Carey. "Defeat came as the result of
extremely bad management. In the
first place, it did not seem to me that
the first proposal of the Roosevelt
managers had any merit. They moved
to substitute a list of 72 names,

necessary that some action bo taken to
stop It.
Democratic Nominee Neither
.Chews Nor Drinks. .
Captain A. M. Wilson Declares Jer
sey Governor Will Not Be Dictated
to by Powers" if Elected and
Is Not Office Seeker.
'"Woodrow Wilson never chews to
bacco nor drinks Intoxicants: he never
gets angry; he has the ability to Bit
down anywhere and under any circum
stances and go to sleep and he Is the
most approachable man I ever met,"
said Captain A. M. Wilson, a cousin of
the nominee and a graduate of West
Point Military Academy, who is new
in business In Portland.
"Of course I speak from my personal
knowledge of the man. I never knew
him to Indulge in any habits of any
kind that swere derogatory to his
health. He was raised by a strict fath
er who was a Presbyterian minister
and when he outgrew this guidance
and went to Princeton, all the good
clean blood of his Scotch-Irish ances
tors revolted at an unclean deed.
"Would this man have willingly im
mured himself in Princeton as a pro
fessor and later as Its president if he
had had political ambitions? I ask this
merely in answer to the statement that
he has been secretly planning this coup
since he began to wear pants. I do
not know, but it doesn't seem reason
able that he would have become a col
lege president as a step toward po
litical fame. He has merely proved to
be a man whom the country needs and
it has taken him.
Office Serklna- Not HI Forte.
" 'No man is big enough to refuse
the Presidency of the United States,'
was what he said of his possible can
didacy when he was on the Coast a
year ago and that Is his attitude. He
Is not an office seeker.
"One thing is certain. Woodrow
will Tun his office in his own way.
There will be no power behind the
throne there. When he was professor
of Jurisprudence and political economy
at Princeton, although he was the best-
llked and the most democratic in
structor In the school, yet he main
tained his dignity and authority al
ways. He would go out on the athletic
field and mingle with the fellows, not
as a highbrow professor with a lot of
theories about physical education, but
as a fellow student. He would listen
attentively to anyone on any subject.
Yet when all was said his own opinions
still prevailed and he did things In his
own way. How good and how wise a
way that Is, the people of the United
States will have a chance to Judge
when he is elected President at the
coming election.
"His wonderful command of the
English language he attributes to the
training given him by his father. When
he would be reading anything and
would ask his father the meaning of
the word, the old doctor of divinity
would refer him to the dictionary and

all its different phases of meaning.
