DEBTOR ,'S REFUSED BAIL
Judge Morrow Says It. Pewether
.May Slay In Jail Indefinitely.
Circuit Judge Morrow refused ball
yesterday to L. Pewether, who is In the
County Jail in default of payment of a
judgment of 12700 secured against him
by Hattle Yott. Attorneys for Pe
wether are seeking to obtain his re
lease on a writ of habeas corpus and
in doing so are attacking the validity
of the Oregon statute permitting ex
ecution against the body for debt- The
writ la made returnable today.
Mrs. Yott alleged in her complaint
that In 1908 Pewether purchased from
her a rooming-house at East Morrison
street and Grand avenue for J 1500.
giving In return a note for 11500 and
shares of stock, both of which turned
out to be worthless. She started suit
to rescind the contract on the ground
of fraud, filing her complaint in No
vember, 1913. Pewether had disposed
of the property in the meantime and
did not answer the complaint. Judg
ment was secured against him by de
fault. Including 1500 exemplary dam
ages. The woman's attorneys could find
nothing to satisfy the judgment and
they seized tbe body of the defendant,
under tlie Oregon statute which per
mits imprisonment for icfot where
there has been fraud in contracting It.
"What would be tbe use of this stat
ute If the man could be released on
ball?" asked Judge Morrow. "If the
facts are as stated. 1 might say also
that the man stands a mighty good
chance of being confined indefinitely
unless he pays up. We had a corres
ponding case here not 'long ago and
the law was pretty well threshed out."

CRIPPLED ROADS RESUME
Schedule Kesumed on Hallways
After Series of Blockades.
All the railroads that were "tied
up" last week on account of snow in
the Cascade mountains have unearthed
their tracks and resumed service
Trains are operating again between
Eastern points and the Puget Sound
While the roads radiating out of
Portland never suffered in the least,
the Great Northern, Northern Pacific
and Milwaukee were "up against It"
for weeks at a time. In fact, they
encountered such difficulties in getting
their trains through . the snow-bound
hills that much of their perishable
freight was handled by the O.-W. R
& N. and North Bank lines through the
Advices received yesterday by local
agents of the Great Northern and Mil
waukee show that they have resumed
service. The Northern Pacific opened
up the day before.
Portland has been fortunate, as
usual this year, while the cities on the
north suffered. The snow blockades
occurred In tiie mountains west of
Pasco. East of Pasco the lines were
open. Through service was possioie,
therefore, between Portland and all
Eastern points, either via Pasco or via
the North Bank direct to Spokane, or
via the O.-W. R. & N. route straight
to the East.
Grand Jury Indicts Five.
Two indictments were returned by
the grand Jury yesterday against Del
V. Meagher In connection with the vice
crusade. One indictment charges a fel
ony and the other a misdomeanor. Ed
ward Weinberger, alias Edward But-
cr, was the subject of two true bills
charging that he accepted the earnings
of Lilly Klein and Bessie Powers.
George E. Blum, alias Charles Blum,
was indicted twice for contributing to
the delinquency of Blanche Rowley and
Grace Allen, children under 10 years
of age. Other Indictments found were:
Roland R. Orne, contributing to tne de
linquency of Hazen M. Wright, a minor;
Sam Brantigan, larceny of a violin
from J.- E. Weaver. Hazen Wright is
one of tbe boys involved in the vice
cases. He is being used as a witness
by the state against several men.

able at the time delivery is specified.
It Is said that between 160,000 ana zuu,
000 barrels have been sold In the North
west and a large amount will be
shipped by way of Puget Sound. The
coming of the Hamburg-American and
the spirited buying early in the month

probably be competition for the busi

but meanwhile is being besieged by
dozens of applicants for positions, by
shippers who want Information and
others with inquiries. While there is
an abundance of time for such details,
as the first steamer Is not due until
April, exporters are anxious to ascer
tain what terms they can depend on in
accepting business. Also a dock must
be arranged for and numerous otner
thlrgs straightened out.
Officials of the fleet at Hamburg
are exDected to .outline what, they

apprised by G. Giese, who was here last
year, of conditions and as to what
steps he took to secure berths or his
recommendations as to what should be
done in that respect.
ITREPROOF RULES DROPPED
Heavy Mill Construction to Be Al
lowed on Waterfront.
News relished by water-front tax
payers has leaked out. The Commis
sion of Public Docks will not Insist
on fireproof construction In the har
bor limits in cases where new oocks
are erected or the existing structures
largely rebuilt. When the water-front
building ordinance is passed, which
will be at the next meeting, it is saia
its clauses will be for the use of heavy
mill construction, rather than concrete.
The change Is said to be welcome to
firemen as well as property owners.-
At meetings held to consider the or
dinance, attended by many dock .own
ers, it was argued that when heavy
timbers were used fire has little chance
to work rapidly aa they were con
sumed slowly, while- firewalls con
fined the blaze largely. While adopt
ing the heavy mill construction idea,
the Commlrslon will aim to encourage
permanent foundations and In that
connection it Is hoped to have seawalls,
at least in a portion of the harbor.
The Commission was to have met to
day, but instead the members will go

who comes with her from Paris, and
the other Edward J. Sullivan, who is
managing the Bernhardt tour as the
representative of Martin Beck of the
Orpheum circuit. The first duty of Mr.
Sullivan upon arriving at a new spot
on the Bernhardt itinerary is to select
a site for the parking of Madame Bern

of the city. Railroad officials at

a brief visit to Pendleton, where be
went to Investigate the sewage problem
of the Western State Asylum and to ex
amine Judge G. W. Phelps, who is seri
ously ill with smallpox.
"I found Judge Phelps very low with
smallpox," said Dr. White. "His tem
perature was 104 degrees and he was
delirious, but I have hopes of his re
covery. Judge Phelps thinks that he
contracted the disease at La Grande,
where there has been a slight epidemic
of smallpox. He has not been vaccinated
for years and his vaccination did not
"The value of vaccination as a pre
ventative of smallpox is demonstrated
In the judge's family. His daughter,
who was vaccinated when her father's
disease was made known, has had a
very light attack, but Mrs. Phelps and
her sister escaped entirely.
"The new Western State Asylum, of
which Dr. W. D. McNary is superin
tendent, is a magnificent up-to-date
building. The present Legislature is
asked to provide funds for a sewage
plant. The sewage now empties Into
the Umatilla River.

steel frames around small panes of
glass. This patient has figured out that
there are 6320 windows and that it
would take one man a year and seven
months to wash all of them. "What's all
this for?' he reasons. 'Bars would be
better, as they weren't washed where
we came from."
An amusing incident connected with
the transportation of the patients was
that of a female patient who ap
proached a brakeman at the next sta
tion reached after The Dalles and In
formed the brakeman that she had
boarded the train by mistake and
would get off and wait for the regu
lar train. The brakeman. anxious to
accommodate the woman, was opening
the door for her when a guard ap
proached him and Informed him that
the passenger was a patient.

Alleging discrimination in favor of
other buildings, which he charges have
been assessed only 1H- cents a kilowatt
hour for electric current, while he has
paid 24 cents, in addition to a "stand
by" charge of $24.76 a month for the
Henry building, Charles K. Henry has
started in Circuit Court suit to collect
$2276.10, the amount which he declares
he was overcharged by the Portland
Railway, Light & Power Company from
October, 1903. to August, 1912, in
clusive "Tho defendant has exacted a va
riety of prices and imposes different
terms and conditions for like and con
temporaneous service," asserts the
Henry complaint, which was filed by
Attorneys Bauer & Greene and A. H.
McCurtain. The suit is really in the
nature of a test case to secure an opin
ion from the Circuit Court on the right

that rates are charged in proportion

matism. The blood is the product of digestion.
Whatever sort of food is digested In
the stomach is absorbed into the blood.
If the food is badly digested this is
also absorbed Into the blood. If the
food sours In the stomach before diges
tion, or during digestion, the acids are
absorbed into the blood.
These acids in the blood produce a
condition known ss rheumatism. The
acids are liable to produce microscopic
crystals. These crystals are depositea
In the ligaments and cartilages, caus
ing rheumatism of the joints. Some
times In the bones, producing periodic
pains every time a storm approaches.
Sometimes in the muscles, producing
lumbago, stiff neck, myalgia, and mus
cular rheumatism generally.
Fe-rn-Ds Corrrrli Dta-eatfoit.
The reason that Pe-ru-na relieves
such cases is easy to understand. Pe-ru-na
corrects digestion. Pe-ru-na cor
rects digestion partly by hurrying It.
Pe-ru-na does not furnish any artificial
dlgestant. it simply assists Nature in
doinsr its own digesting.
In this way tne proaurra oi aiges-
tlon are more normal- The blood Is
not filled with imperfectly digested
food. No acids accumulate In the
stomach while Pe-ru-na Is being taken.
Thus rheumatism Is prevented.
It is a great deal better to prevent
a disease than to try to cure It. But
even after rheumatism has begun the
condition that caused it ought to be
removed If possible.
Good Digestion Stops Rheumatism.
The first thing to do is to secure
good digestion, then if it Is necessary
specific medicines for rheumatism may
be taken. But until the digestion Is
made perfect It is of little or no use
to take medicines for rheumatism. To
produce good digestion Pe-ru-na should
