Judge's Snore Audible.
"The Judge awoke with a snore aud
ible all over the courtroom. He went
to sleep in the afternoon during the
time I appeared in his court. The
Judge snores when he sleeps. I think
he falls asleep because or drinKing in
toxicants. I saw him drinking in I
saloon at the lunch hour.
"On the day when he slept so long
the Judge had taken two drinks De
tore going on the bench. I have seen
him on the bench when his mind was
not in normal condition and the cause
was evidently use of alcoholic stimu
lants. He never went on the bench In
the afternoons without having some
liquor. His general symptoms were
those of a man not drunk, but who bad
been drinking.
John C Higgins. a Seattle attorney,
testified that he had never seen Han
ford when there was the slightest sus

Hanford late one night, "laboring from
exhaustion, illness or possibly drink.
The Judge leaned up against a bulld

SEATTLE, Wash, July 10. (Special.)
Seventy-five women, the youngest 30
and the oldest 61, will take the civil
service examination tomorrow for the
position of policewoman, a position re
cently created by the City Council
through the efforts of Councilman Aus
tin E. Griffiths.

authority to employ four police women,
but It Is understood that when the tax
budget Is made up for 1913, work on
which will begin within two weeks, an
effort will be made by certain of the
Council to reduce the number of men
In the police department and Increase
the number of women. This plan is
credited with having the support of a
number of the city officials.
Whether or not Chief of Police
Claude Bannlck has agreed to such a
plan has not been announced, but it
is understood that the Mayor is not
opposed to the employment of more

Third Street, near Morrison.
tlon Company of California. The bid
was accepted for laying what Is
termed heavy gravel bitulthlc The
price bid for that kind of paving by
the successful firm was 11.75 a square
yard of finished paving.
There was an unusually large num
ber of bidders for the work here and
for a large variety of paving. The
Council adopted the gravel bltullthlc.
One of the leading Inducements for the
selection of this kind was the easy
accessibility here of excellent gravel
for the purpose.
The area to be paved Is a little more
than 25,000 square yards and the com
pleted work, including curbs and
drainage, makes the total costs of the
Improvement in excess of 152.000. This,
with the $60,000 being expended this
year for the installation of a sewer
system, makes the total cost of public
Improvements for the city for this year
exceed $112,000.

SALEM. Or., July 10. (Special.)
That Oregon- is the stamping ground
for crooked promoters from other
states who make it a practice to come
to this state to organize fake com
panies because the laws of Oregon do
not gtve the state authority to look

"The Columbia River Orchards Com-

crooked enterprises. These people
had to have a dummy corporation to act
as a trustee. They couldn't organize
It under the laws of Washington, so
they came to Portland and organized
the Oregon-Washington Trust Cora

company was supposed to hold $125
worth of securities for every $100
worth of the obligation of the Colum

the crash came it developed that their
alleged securities were absolutely
worthless. Even the office furniture
was not paid for and the stenographer

Investment for
Visiting Elks
I do not want to bother you with" business while you are here.
. I am inserting this advertisement, just once in each paper, because
I understand that some of you have heard so much about Portland
that you are favorably inclined to make an investment of some
kind, while you are here
I wish you could come and live with us, all of you.
"Westover Terrace is view property. -It overlooks the entire city.
It is being made to order. That is to say, it was a big hill and is
being brought down to grade for building purposes. No street
iwill have over an 8 grade. Every site is level and so arranged
that no building can ever obstruct the scenic view before you.
There is a territory of 10,000 square miles visible from Westover
Terraces, including five snow-capped mountain peaks, as well as
200 miles of the Cascade Range.
Hard-surface pavements, concrete walks and curbs, water, gas and
electric mains, sewers, parkings, rose bushes, ornamental trees
and retaining walls, wherever necessary, will be installed. A large
. part of the work is already' done.
It is a ride of 11 minutes by automobile and about 18 minutes by,
streetcar. . Cars will run to the center of the property.
The best people "of Portland are buying for permanent homebuild
ing in Westover Terraces and while we prefer builders to invest
ors, we cannot discount the investment advantages.
If you will telephone to me personally, I will accompany you to
Westover Terraces any time that it is convenient for you.
I firmly believe that any member of No. 142 will give you good
advice regarding Portland realty, investments and I am certain
that none of them will underestimate the merits of Westover
Terraces. ,
Your pleasure is mine.

hives 6t W. W. Dakin, who has a' large
apiary here and who is taking his bees
to the burnt-over areas where the logs
have been cut and where during the
past few years forest fires hav swept
over big districts, leaving the ' land
clear of underbrush, and where the Are
weed blossoms nearly the whole Sum
mer. "The lire weed produces more honey
and better," says Mr. Dakin. "than any
other flower of Oregon. The appetis
ing sweet that the industrious insects
gather from it is clear and of a pleas
ing, delicate flavor. . At present my
bees are only working on the white
clover llelds of the lower valley. They
have become sluggish and only secure
enough food to feed the young. When
I get them out in the wilds I expect
them to make the hives look like sky
scrapers, and I will be able to supply
the local demand."
Mr. Dakin until this season has never
devoted much of his time to his bees
as honey gatherers, but haa kept the
apiary principally as a queen produc
lag colony.
This Spring he haa sold
hundreds of the queens for hives of
distant states.. ' ,
