Brokers' Books Shown.
The Governor's account with Harris
& Fuller, which the Impeachment man
agers charge was a marginal or specu
lative account, not a loan account, was
i tain affnrAinar to the trtoks
of the firm, 'which Fuller presented
today. The tatrnegio irusi
It was recalled tonight, was in finan
cial difficulties that year and subse
quently it failed.
The account not only showed a long
series of borrowing on securities
brought to the firm by Sulzer, but also
the purchase and sale of other securi
ties, calls for "margin" and the de
posit by Sulzer of cash payments of
stock In response to these calls. The
account began In June. 1910, when the
Governor deposited 100 shares of Big
Four, worth at the then market price
18200, and obtained thereon a $6000
loan. The next day, however, he
bought through the firm 100 shares of
the same stock, against which he gave
no security except the equity In his
first 100 shares.
Tumble CalU for "Margie."
Then Big Four began to tumble In
the market and the rest of the account
was a record of efforts by Mr. Sulzer
to keep up the "margin." as disclosed
in letter Harris & Fuller wrote to him,
using that term In demanding that the
deficit In the account be made good.
Sixteen thousand dollars in cash,
which the impeachment managers con
tend formed part of the Governor's
campaign contributions, were used In
meeting these calls for "margin," ac
cording to the books.
Finally, in July, 1913, Lieutenant
1 M. Josephthal, a New Tork banker
and member of the Governor's staff,
came to the rescue by paying off a
debit balance against the account of
326,739 and taking up the securities.
At this time the Governor nad put into
the account, according to the books,
373.439 in stock or cash, and his net
loss, excluding the amount paid In by
Josephthal. was $8414.
Stock Transfer Tax Abandoned.
Especial emphasis was placed today
on the Governor's special message urg
ing the bill designed to double the tax
on transfers of stock. This measure
was Introduced February 4 by Senator
Stilwell. now a prisoner In Sing Sing,
and was not reported out of the com
mittee. - i .
The managers' counsel said they would
show that the reason the bill was not
reported was that the Governor had
withdrawn his advocacy of It. They
announced that in this connection they

LARGE RENT Alt TO BE SAVED
Postmaster Myers Suggests Other
Offices May Come Here.
Looking into the local situation for
Senator Lane, Postmaster Myers as
certained that the Government is pay
ing out about S30.000 a year in rental
for the various i offices in different
buildings in the city. It la largely to
avoid this condition that the move
ment for centralization of all Federal
offices In one building was begun.
Postmaster Myers also suggested that
several offices, such as the Civil Serv
ice office for this district the postal
inspector's office and others nearly
all carrying payrolls of more than $60,
000 a year might be brought to Port
land if suitable office arrangements
were made, such as would be possible
in the Droposed building.
The Portland Chamber of Commerce
has gone on record as opposed to any
alteration In the present plans, pre
ferring that a two-story structure for
nostal Durposes alone should be erect
ed on the new site and suggesting that
a central building for other Federal
offices can be erected later on the
present site of the Federal building.
The Ad Club committee on resolutions
prepared a resolution indorsing the
plan suggested by Postmaster Myers
and Secretary Lane, but at the last
meeting of the club this resolution
was tabled Indefinitely because of a
marked division of opinion among, the
members of the olub.

any store on the Pacific Coast, or indeed, west of Chicago.
Mr. Clarke and Mr. "Woodward, the owners of this

thirty years and are still actively engaged in serving the

We confess to a natural and proper feeling of pride
in our record, not of boasting, but the consciousness of
faithful service well rewarded by the confidence and pat
ronage of the people whom we serve. Our new store,
occupying the entire building, in its new location, beauti
fully lighted and equipped, and comprising, as it does, ten
selling floors, stands today as an evidence of what hard

In commemoration of this occasion, we shall on Sat

one or more prescriptions filled at our store, whether

age heretofore extended. These souvenirs, handsomely
framed pictures selected from our art section, will be dis

will be unable to present more than one souvenir to each'
