C. A. Stuewe Confesses For
gery and Is Held for Simi
lar Deal at St. Louis.
Groundwork for Attempt to Extract
SI 50 From First National Bank
Laid in Trip From Chicago
With G. A. Hertsche.
Check No. 13. dated August 13. 1913.
wan the downfall of C. A. Stuewe. a
young married man. who was arrested
bv Detectives Smith and Hill Tuesday
night for offering it at the First Na
tional Bank. He has admitted the for
gery and will be held upon information
that be is wanted for a similar offense
in St. Louis.
Groundwork for the attempt to ex
tract 1150 from the Klrst National Bank
was laid several weeks ago. when
Stuewe. accompanied by his wife and
child, rode from Chicago to Butte in the
name car with E. A. Hertsche, a. Port
land leather dealer. The two struck up
an acquaintance, which allowed Stuewe
to ask the name of his traveling com
panion, and Mr. Hertsche obligingly
wrote his name and address on the stub
of a bank book, tendered by Stuewe.
At Butte the new acquaintances part
ed and Mr. Hertsche. a few days later,
received a cordial little message from
Etuewe. on a post card.
Flint National Next om 1,1st.
Last Tuesday a young man appeared
In the line at the paying teller's window
at the First National Bank, and asked
if Mr. Hertsche had been there. The
teller replied that he had not.
"Too bad." remarked the stranger.
"He was to have been here at 2 o'clock
to indorse a check for me. Guess I
shall have to go out and look him up."
Soon afterward he was back at the
window, with the remark: "I got him,
you see."
He presented a check for $150. bear
ing on the reverse side below his own
name, an-apparently good signature of
E. A. Hertsche. Something about the
transaction made the teller wary, and
lie detained Stuewe while he telephoned
to Mr. Hertsche. Stuewe was asked to
wait, but when Hertsche arrived and
the teller, looked around for hiin, he
was gone
Defectives Take Trail.
The Pinkerton agency and the city de
tectives were notified, and Detectives
Smith and Hill and Superintendent
Holmes took the trail. They found
Stuewe registered at the Seward Hotel
and he was taken into custody on a
vagrancy charge.
In the prisoner's possession was found
the stub written by Mr. Hertsche, with
plain evidence that a tracing had been
made from it. The stub also corres
ponded with the check presented at the
bank, being of the stationery of the
Commonwealth Bank of St Louis. An
other check for $150 was found in
Stuewe's possession.
The prisoner was taken before the
grand jury by Deputy District Attorney
Collier, and made a full admission of
his attempt. The vagrancy charge went
over till August 22.
Northern Pacific Men to Pass
Through Portland Today.
Arrangements for the entertainment
of the party of Northern Pacific travel
ing Immigration agents who will be in
Portland Saturday, following trips
through the Willamette Valley and Cen
tral Oregon, have been made by the
Portland Commercial Club.
The party, which, numbers about 2S,
will pass through Portland today en
route to Eugene, and will go to Bend
tonight, accompanied by Paul E.
Schwabe, representing the State Immi
gration Commission. They will return
to Portland by way of Vancouver,
On Saturday the party will take lunch
at the Commercial Club. Edgar B.

Fred Hanssen Will Come to Local
Offices of Southern Pacific.
The appointment of Fred Hanssen as
assistant superintendent of the Port
laud division of the Southern Pacific,
it was announced yesterday, is to be
come effective at once. Hanssen has
been Inspector of train service In the
.office of V. R. Scott, general manager,
at San Francisco.
Ten years ago Hanssen was an office
boy for Julius Kruttschnitt. director
of maintenance and operation of the
Harriman lines, in Chicago. His rise
under Mr. Kruttschnitt. however, was
rapid. In 1910 he entered In the stu
dent school of the Harriman lines and
quickly became assistant trainmaster
at Los Angeles, then at Oakland pier.
His next rise was to the Inspectorship.
Time in Which Government Might
File Suit Has Xovr Expired.
Thousands of settlers and land
owners in the Willamette Valley are
relieved that the year during which
suits might be filed by the United
States Government against their land
holdings under "the Innocent pur
chaser" act expired yesterday. Tester
day the title to their land became In
disputable. The original right to ownership by
the railroad has been involved. Vast
tracts have been declared forfeited
during the year ending yesterday.
Forty of these cases have been decided
against the holders of the land, some
of the purchasers who had acquired
1000 or more acres of the grant lands
from the Cregon & California Railroad
"Independents" ot Composed of
Members of Other Unions.
PORTLAND. Or.. Aug. 20. (To the
F-ditor.) Considerable publicity has
been given to the longshoremen's
trouble with an "Independent organisa
tion." and come of the statements in
recent issues of the press ot Portland
are calculated to mislead, anyone not
familiar with the form of organisation
of the American Federation of Labor,
ot which Longeshoremen's Union 38-6
is a unit.
The A. F. of L. has been given by the
unions which compose It power to regu
late and adjust jurisdictional disputes.
One of the cardinal principles la that
no union or any member thereof shall
affiliate with a dual organization. This
being true, the statement that the In
dependents are composed of members
of other unions of the A. F. of L. Is of
little weight.
The object of the American Federa
tion Is to organize all workers. There
fore, it must necessarily be democratic
in form, else It could not survive. It is
a movement In which force and vio
lence has no part, and alleged rioting
should be deprecated, and no doubt will
be, by Longshoremen's No. 6. The
solidarity of the labor movement, how"
ever, depends upon the character of
the workers. Competency and temper
ance is the demand of the times, so the
union should have some say in the
selection of its members.
When, as a result of false statements
made In advertising for men some time
ago, the city was flooded with idle men
and the municipal government was
compelled to provide work, it gave
preference to citizens and men of fam
ily. Shafl Longshoremen's. No. 38-6,
be criticised for doing likewise?
Secretary Oregon State Federation of
Alleged Parasite Convicted on Va
grancy Charge 'Sentenced to 90
Days on Rockpilc and Fine,
That as many as 50 men were piloted
in. one day from the Acme Reception
saloon at Fourth and Davis s'treets, to
the Immoral resorts overhead, was an
admission alleged to have been made
by Charles Nadeau, the bartender, vho
was placed on trial before a Jury in
Municipal Court yesterday.
"Sure I do," said Nadeau, according
to Patrolmen Nlles and Hutchlngs.
"Guys come in here and ask, and my
Job depends on - it. If I don't do it
someone else will."
Nadeau. when on trial yesterday
made a partial admission of making
such a statement, but his defense rested
on the legal point that answering such
questions was not "soliciting" as
The Jury found Nadeau guilty, re
turning a sealed verdict at 7 o'clock
last night.
Stanley Ross, an alleged parasite of
Stella Morland, an inmate of the place,
was convicted by a Jury on a vagrancy
charge, immediately preceding Nadeau's
trial. The woman, with live others, had
been acquitted by a Jury the day before.
Ross was sentenced by Municipal
Judge Stevenson to serve 90 days on
the rockpile and fined 1100 In addition.
Harry Richardson, who was convicted
Tuesday on the same charge, was given
a sentence of 25 days on the rockpile.
The Acme Reception and Its con
necting rooms, have been, for many
years, one of the notorious spots of
the city. Abatement proceedings
against them have been withheld on
promise of the owners to take action.
The arrests on which these trials fol
low, were made prior to that arrange
ment. Another case is pending in which
the saloon management is charged with
violating the liquor ordinance by main,
talnlng the stairway by which Nadeau
Is alleged to have piloted his visitors.

At yesterday morning's session of the
City Council the Mayor and Commis
sioners postponed action of Commis
sioner Daly's proposed ordinance to
force the Portland Railway. Light &
Power Company to sell six tickets for
25 cents. Mr. Daly himself recom
mended this action In view of the
statements of President Griffith of the
car company to the Commission Monday
and in view of the assertion of the offi
cials of the East Side Business Men's
Club that it has figures to present
against those of Mr. Griffith.
Mayor Albee's request that the grocery-saloon
license of S. Brunn, 233 H

was granted. The Council also voted
that no saloon license should be trans
ferred to. or granted for a liquor shop
in, the new building at Third and Alder
streets, being erected by the Rose City
Importing Company.

the fee for transferring licenses be
raised from $10 to J300 and the sug
gestion will be considered at the
"kitchen cabinet" meeting tomorrow
morning at 10.
The Commission created the position
of storekeeper in the Purchasing Bu
reau, under Purchasing Agent Wood, at
a salary of $125 a month.
With the Intention ultimately of hav
ing all railroads remove their tracks on

Vancouver to Have Sane Fourth.
VANCOUVER. Wash., Aug. SO. (Spe
cial.) No longer will the small boys
from Portland and other surrounding
cities come to Vancouver on July 4 to
celebrate the Nation's birthday by ex

Mariner Advises That Track
Be Kept on South Jetty.
With Sinking of Enrockment More
Material and Reconstruction of
Trestle AVill Bo Necessary,
Says Captain Nopandcr.
Seeking to postpone the removal of
the rails and ties from the south Jetty
at the mouth of the Columbia River,
which have been ordered taken up by
Major Mclndoe, Corps of Engineers,
IT. S. A.. Captain Nopander, of the
steamer Bear, said yesterday that he
had discussed a dangerous policy with
a member of the Port of Portland Com
mission. The equipment is to be taken
to Fort Canby for use on the nortn
Major Mclndoe is absent from the
city on his vacation, but he intends to
remove all material that can be made
useful on the north Jetty project, be
ing guided by the expense of removing
the material as compared with what
it would cost if purchased new.
Captain Nopander's argument Is that
when the enrockment of the Jetty sinks.
as it is expected to in a few years, it
might be found necessary to build It up
again, and us the piling will not be
preserved the construction of an entire,
new trestle would be necessary. He
points to conditions at Coos Bay and
Humboldt Bay as in line with what he
thinks may be experienced at the
mouth of the river, saying that Jetties
there virtually have to be reconstructed,
and that the fact the enrockment sank
caused those entrances to shoal.
That the Port of Portland Commis
sion will not agitate the matter is re
garded certain, and as Astoria interests
endeavored to have more rock dumped
there and took it up with Secretary of
War Garrison on the occasion of his
recent visit. It Is vtewed here largely
In the nature of a closed subject. Cap
tain Nopander suggests that letters be
written by a commercial or municipal
body to shipmasters plying regularly
out of the Columbia and solicit their
opinions as to the ultimate effect when
the Jetty sinks.

East Burnside District Asso
ciation Takes Action.
Residence Property Owners Oppose
Increasing Width of Burnside
Street to 80 Feet, but Investi
gation Committee N'amcd.
In order to settle the aueation of the
widening of East Burnside street from
the bridge approach to East Thirtieth
street a resolution favoring the widen
ing of the street to 80 feet by taking
ten feet from each side, and authoriz
ing the appointment of a committee to
assembly data as to cost and procedure,
was adopted at the meeting of the
East Burnside District Association yes
terday held at 385 East Burnside
street. The resolution was tentative in
Its efTect and simply a method of
starting proceedings for investigating
the feasibility of the project.
Chairman O. E. Helntz appointed the
following committee: J. B. Harring
ton, Daniel Kern. F. A- Dunham. Q. E.
Welter and J. H. Page. All are property
owners except Mr. Welter who repre
sents property Interests. This com.
mlttee was instructed to confer with
the City Commissioners and to investi
gate the cost and submit a detailed re
port at a future meeting. The com
mittee may recommend that a meeting
of property owners be called to con
sider the plan.
Several Advocate Improvement.
O. E. Helntz made a strong plea In
favor of the improvement and pointed
out what he considered its advantages.
He declared that to mako a wide street
would add double to the value of the
property. East Burnside street, he
said, will always be a great central
street and that a new and modern
bridge will be built in the course of a
few years.
Daniel Kern said he favored widening
the street and was willing to pay the
cost. George Flora voiced the same
sentiments and J. H. Page said he
favored the widening, although he
represented 200 feet of frontage.
F. A, Dunham said he favored ad
herence to the Bennett plans, which
were adopted by the votes of the peo
ple at the last election.
"Those plans call for 130 feet" said
Mr. Dunham, "and I am In favor of that
width. To make the street 80 feet
wide would do little good. The peo
pie voted in favor of making the Ben
nett plans a future guide in the growth
of the city, and 1 favor sticking by
Op-posltlou Is Voiced.
John F. Cordray, representing the
residence district on East Burnside
street, said he could not see how the
residents would benefit. Albert Klein.
property owner, spoke against the
widening and said that the great ma
Jority of the property owners are op
posed. Several of the property owners
said that they are willing to have the
matter investigated and asked if a dis
trict assessment could not be formed
to pay for the property appropriated.
The resolution favoring the widening
was adopted by a vote of 11 to 9. Mr.
Dunham protested against it being an
nounced that the club favored the
widening to 80 feet: however. Chair
man Heints declared the resolution
adopted as a starting point. Commis
sioner Blgelow was present and sug
gested that tire property owners take
the matter up and decide for them
selves, and this may be done.
Resolutions were adopted thanking

Property Owners Give Version of
Burnside Club Meeting.
PORTLAND. Or, Ausr. 20. (To the
Editor.) A meeting was held this aft
ernoon at 385 East Burnside street by
the East Burnside Street ImDrovement
Club, to which had been invited thotfe
who own property on that thorough
fare, to discuss the advisability of wid
ening the street to 80 feet. There were
present at the meeting 20 men. 13 of
whom are owners of property on the
street and seven who own no property
on the street, A resolution, which had
been prepared In advance, was offered.
which read In effect as follows.
Resolved. That the East Burnside
Improvement Club Is in favor of the
widening of East Burnside Btreet to
80 feet in width, and the appointment
of a committee to take up the matter
of starting proceedings for such widen
ing with the City Commissioners."
This resolution upon being put to a
vote was declared carried by a vote of
11 for to nine against. The question
then was asked how many of the prop
erty owners were In favor of It, and
upon a vote being taken it was found
that but four were In favor of the
widening to nine against it. One of
those voting in favor of it stated that
he was in favor of it only upon condi
tion that the city would pay the dam
age, an impossibility under the city
charter. Thus we see that there were

Nothing But S. S. S. Can Overcome Such Afflictions as These.
An astonishing record of serious blood
poisoning is daily brought to our atten
tion. Enlarged lymphatic 'glands, swell
ings In the neck, on the arms and legs.
Varicose veins on the less, all of these
are the effect of some poisonous substance
collected in the glands or sluggishly held
in the veins to undermine the entire sys
tem or break out In chronic sores. And
most if not all of these startling calami
ties could be averted were the blood
primed, toned, and purified in advance by
that wonderful remedy known every
where as S. S. S.
The greatest peril Is the dally danger
from bruises, contusions, the scratch of
a rusty nail. Insect bites, poisoning by
the house fly that deposits the germs of
Typhoid Malaria, Diphtheria, and other
malignant diseases. And should harmful
germs infect a bruise or contusion, in
stead of collecting In the glands or form
ing an ugly sore or ulcer the activities of
the blood keep it in subjection and
quickly cause it to be eliminated.
S. S. S. is a wonderful antidote. It
contains one Ingredient, the active pur
pose of which is to stimulate the tis
sue cells to select their own nutrition
and thus replace with healthy Pabulum
but three property owners in favor of
the resolution against 10 who are op
posed to it.
A protest was made by the property
owners against publishing in the pub
lic press that the property owners are
In favor of widening the street, as it
was shown by the vote of the property
owners that there are over two to one
against It. It is probable that fully
nine-tenths of the property owners on
the street are against such widening.
The protest was of no avail, however,
and we shall probably see in The Ore
gonlan tomorrow morning an account
of the meeting, stating that the East
Burnside Improvement Club is in favu.
of widening the street, and the reader
will be led to suppose that the prop
erty owners also are in favor of the
widening, which is grossly misleading
to say the least, for they showed most
emphatically by their votes that they
were not in favor of it.
There is a committee, appointed by
the City Commissioners, u.ider whose
supervision the carrying out of
Bennett plans is contemplated. Th-3
widening of East Burnside street Is one
of the important parts of the Bennett
plan, and any movement for the wid
ening of that street should be taken
up officially with the committee. If it
shall be deemed for the benefit of the
whole city that East Burnside street,
or any other street, should be wid
ened, then a provision must be made to
amend the city charter so that a tix
may be levied on all property In the
city to pay the damage entaiied by
such widening.
The property owners are almcst
unanimously opposed to any widening
at their own expense, and do not de
sire to be placed In a wrong light by
the East Burnside Improvement Club,
or any other organization.

Portland Citizen Gives His Reason for
Recommending Plant Juice, the
New Tonic.
The following- strong endorsement Is
from Mr. G. A. Bradtberg. a stationery
engineer living at the Phillips Hotel in
this city. He said:
"I have Buffered from catarrh nntll
my entire system seemed to be affected.
Had headaches and a disagreeable
roaring in my ears and this condition
became so bad that my hearing was af
fected. I was also in a rundown con
dition and suffered with nervous debil
ity. Had tried many things but the best
I ever received was temporary relief:
was pretty well discouraged when I
decided to try Plant Juice. Within the
first three or four days from the time
I started taking it I found a decided
change in my condition. 1 am feeling
better than I have felt for ages and am
beginning to feel that I could begin to
enjoy life again. You can say for me
that anyone suffering with these most
distressing ailments cannot go wrong
if they try Plant Juice
Catarrh is an Inflammation of the
mucous membrane which reaches from
the inside of the nostrils clear through
the whole alimentary tract and any
part of the surface can be affected by
catarrh. Plant Juice Is taken up by the
circulation and heals and soothes the
membranes, keeping them clean and
in a healthful condition. Plant Juice is
sold at the Owl Drug Company's store.
