CASEY 'HOME' AGAIN
Judge Stevenson Refuses to
Give Up Trial to Reform Him.
TRIP TO CITY IS UNDOING
Old Inebriate Stays One Month on
Farm Without Liquor Judge
Believes Sane Method of Han
dling Case Is Possible.
What is to be done with Jim Casey?
That is a problem with which Muni
cipal Judge Stevenson, like half a dozen
of his predecessors, is wrestling, be
cause he realizes that the unfortunate
old man typifies a civic problem which,
in the present progressive wave, gov
ernments must deal with more intelli
gently than has been done in the past.
After a wholesome, recreating montn
on a fruit farm at McMinnville, Casey
came to town Sunday to get some hands
for the farm,, he said, and landed at
his old headquarters at the City Jail.
Remorseful and sick, Casey was in the
line yesterday, but his case wais held
over for further consideration, judge
Stevenson will make at least one more j
eirort oeiore resuming liiu oiu juuuiie
of sending Casey to the rockpile.
Kffort at Reconstruction Kail.
Once a machinist with original abili
ties, Casey has been on the hands of
the community for nearly two decades.
Three times in as many years It has
seemed that he was on the way to re
construction. The first time he at
tempted his own regeneration and, for
a period of several months, held a posi
tion of trust on a farm near the city.
All went well until an errand brought
him to the city, and Burnside street
panther blood did the reBt.,
Then Casey took the drink cure, and
even reached tne point wnere no
loathed alcohol, but the effect wore off.
One of Judge Stevenson's first official
acts was to find Casey the place at
McMinnville, and he did well there
until a few days ago.
Lack of accommodations at the btate
Insane Asylum has blocked Judge Ste
venson's plan to experiment with the
commitment, of inebriates and drug
fiends to that institution. When he
adopted the plan, other communities
throughout the state took it up, and
floods of derelicts poured in till it was
necessary to draw a technical line and
refuse the cases as not being true in
sanity, v Sane Method la Sought.
The magistrate will persist, however,
in advocating some sane method of
dealing with these weaklings, in whom
felony, if it exists at all, is merely an
after-product of drink or drug.
Another problem before the court
yesterday was Dr. M. E. Mayfleld. ar
rested by Patrolman, Schirmer with
morphine in his possession. Once a
physician of note, who achieved some
remarkable surgical feats, drugs ruined
Mayfleld and wasted him so that at the
time of. a former arrest last year he
weighed less than 100 pounds. Sent to
the rockolle. as the only place where
he could be cared for, he satisfied his
craving for the drug by boiling cigar
stumps to a thick syrup and injecting
this with a syringe made from a safety
pin and an eye-dropper. Blood poison
ing developed and he spent a long time
in tne hospital.
FRUIT RANCHER WOUNDED
H.' H. Freeman Shot When Gun Ac
H. H. Freeman, 41, a fruit rancher,
who lives -near the Columbia River,
two miles north of Rose City Park, was
severely injured about the knee yes
terday on his ranch when his daugh
ter, 13 years old, stumbled with a
shotgun which she was carrying, and
the weapon was discharged in his di
rection. When he arrived in the Good
bamaritan Hospital it was to join his
wife, who was taken there some time
ago, and who was informed of her
husband's accident at about the time
when it was his custom to visit her.
Mr.- Freeman was picking apples
when his son, 14years old, noticing a
movement among some scrub, called
to his sister to bring the shotgun and
the girl, obeying, stumbled on clodsln
the orchard. Mr. Freeman was brought
to Portland in an ambulance service

Warrants for Weed Cutting, Total
ing $9 7, Are Presented.
Will H. Warren, secretary to Mayor
Albee, thought the city must have
gone into the grass-cutting business
yesterday when a batch of warrants

doesn't cut his grass after being given
five days' notice, the city ha8 the work
done for him and charges it up as a
lien on the property. The $97 thus
win be secured to the city. The law,
which went into effect on July 1, makesj
