"Frank Curtis took $25 from me. tla
in silver and $10 In sold." B. J. Haden,
proprietor of the Arcade lodging-house,
at .146 First street, testified yester
day at the opening of the trial of Cur
tis. ex-Deputy Sheriff, under indict
ment charged with accepting a bribe
and attempting to extort money. Dis
trict Atorney Kvans and Deputy Ma
guire appeared for the state and At
torney Frank Collier for Curtis.
When Judge McGinn adjourned court
at S o'clock the state had rested Its
case. Attorney Collier moved the court
for a directed verdict, but Judge Mc
Ginn overruled the motion. Testimony
of the defense will begin this morning
and probably be concluded tonight tr
Accepting Bribe Charged.
Curtis is charged wtih having ac
cepted a bribe of $.25 after threatening
to arrest Haden on a charge of con
ducting a disorderly house and aiding
Mona Steiner in the larceny of $25
from Bill Irvin, an ex-convict. The
bribe was taken January 23, the state
Irvin. the first witness called yester
day, testified that Curtis had gone
with him to the lodging-house to col
lect J25 from Haden for the J25 he had
lost a week before.
"Curtis told Haden he had better
square himself by paying the money
back," Irvin testified. "After refusing
lor a time. Haden paid Curtis $25 in
cash and later gave me a check for $25
in payment for the money I had lost.
Curtis and I then left the building.
"When we reached Yamhill street I
Curtis demanded $5 from me. I re
fused at first and offered him $2.50.
He said that wasn't enough; that it
had to be split, three ways. I finally
paid him $5 and after we had another
drink I left him."
Two Tell Same Story.
Haden corroborated Irvin In regard
to the. transaction in the hotel.
"I refused to pay anything at first,
because I wasn't sure that Irvin had
lost any money," said Haden. "Curtis
then said that I knew I was conducting
a disorderly house, and that if I did
not -square things with Irvin he would
arrest me. I had not had any trouble
and did not want any publicity, so I
gave Curtis the $25. When Irvin In
sisted he must have $25, I had to give
him a check."
Other witnesses who testified on be
half of the state were Mrs. Freda
llogue and Mona Steiner, women who
were in the house and talked with
Curtis and Irvin; Officers LiUis and
Tennant. who arrested Irvin; A. L.
Cook, who served Curtis and Irvin
with several drinks before they went
to the Arcade, and Al McCreary, who

EARLY construction of a temporary
freight house on the lot at the
southwest corner of Union avenue and
East Morrison street will be the prob
able result of a conference at the Com
mercial Club yesterday between repre
sentatives of the East Side shipping in
terests and L. C. Gllman. president of
the North Bank and allied Hill rail
roads. Mr. Gilman has asked consent to
erect a galvanized iron, fireproof
structure in place of the brick and
concrete building originally planned.
He has promised the East Side business
men that the temporary building will
be replaced at the end of three years
by a permanent structure.
Failure to secure possession of the
lot adjoining the terminal property on
the west at a reasonable price and
present unfavorable business condi-
tions make it inadvisable for the Hill
interests to proceed with their more
extensive terminal project.
The East Side business men are will
ing to accept this arrangement and all
that is needed now is permission from
the city authorities before work on the
new terminal Is started.
- C. A. Cairns, general passenger
agent of the Chicago A Northwestern,
visited in Portland yesterday on his
way home from the recent meeting of
the Transcontinental Association at
San Francisco. Mr. Cairns believes that
the Northwest will get a large share
of passenger traffic from the World's
Fair at San Francisco next year. The
rates, he points out. are sufficiently
low to attract all classes of travelers.
"Oregon seems to be the destination
of most of the colonists coming to the
Coast this Spring." he said. "As a
matter of fact, our Chicago office is
having more inquiries for Oregon than
for California this year."
The Rock Island has started to make
effective its policy of retrenchment,
and the Coast is feeling the effect. Re
cently the office at Sacramento was
closed. It is reported now that the
Tacoma office will be closed within a
few weeks and the business handled
out of Seattle. It is predicted that the
Oakland office, too. will be closed
within a few months. It is believed
that following the reorganization of
the Rock Island system, which now
seems inevitable, the entire Pacific
Coast agency system will be reorgan
ized. C. W. Colby, of San Francisco, man
ager of the Pacific Coast traffic of the
Erie railroad, was in Portland yester
day arranging for the appointment of
a successor to -C. B. Baker, who re
cently resigned as general agent for
the Erie in this territory, to engage
in private business. Mr. Colby says
that the new man will be named within
the next 10 days, but it is predicted
here that E. A. Seneff. general agent
at Spokane, will be chosen. The Erie
is preparing to increase the Importance
of the Portland office, says Mr. Colby.
The New York Airbrake Company
has completed arrangements for in
stalling a supply depot in Portland for

KIPLING'S "ATTLEY" MET
Student of Agricultural Conditions

fuses to Be Won Over.
BY DAVID SWING R1CKKR.
MARYS VILLE, Cal.. March 30. (Spe
cial.) Rudyard Kipling, In his latest
story, tells of Ms friend Attley. who
would give away his own head If you
told him you had lost yours.
I have met my friend Attley. He Is
here, and he Is so fearful lest I may
(hold to my opinion that I would rather
settle in the Valley of the Willamette
or the Umpqua or in Coos that he Is
ready to give me acres of producing
land in the Valley of the Sacramento
just to prove to my satisfaction that I
am wrong; but my friend Attley, to my
misfortune, hasn't anything to give
away worth more than enthusiasm
without alloy and advice of the same
kind. He is a well-meaning native son
who. like those in New York That can
not see beyond the Statue of Liberty
and those In Boston that find tr.e world
ends at West Newton and those In
Chicago that refuse to look west of
Hinsdale, declines to see beyond the
Sacramento Valley. Everything Is in
side of It. Nothing Is outside of it.
The world Is here. Beyond the world
Is ether. He calls it "hot air."
'Where have you traveled V I asked
Never been out of the state," he an
Then he added:
Provincialism Is Dealed.
"Why should I go out of the state?
We have everything here. And when
I go through California It Is the same
as traveling through ten other states.
Perhaps you don't know that two
states less than a dozen, including New
York and Ohio, could be set within the
boundaries of California. You think I
am provincial. - I can see that you do.
I m not. I m loyal and I live by my
convictions. That's all." And my Att
ley pounded the table with his fist. I
had said all I had to say. I was ready
to listen and I did. My Attley Is not
a bad sort. He Is an early graduate of
Stanford. He is the best advertising

off the payroll of the Southern Pacific:
but, denying myself the pleasure of
his delightful companionship, I have
made my Investigations without him.
but often, very often, as I have gone
from place to place I have found the
thought running through my head:
What a splendid thing It would be for
Oregon to have it crowded with Attleys
like this Attley of Mary svl lie.
'Farafaa; lafaat Industry
I have traveled over nearly every
foot of the Valleys -ot the Willamette
and the Umpqua. the Rogue and the
Coos, and I feel that I am able to make
comparison, yet there still stays with
me one of the arguments of Attley an
argument which must be understood at
the outset before we are able to com
prehend the new spirit In the Sacra

"The real work of farm making In

the per cent being, relatively, 76.9 and
23.1. In 1910 there were 66.265 owners.
and 18,035 tenants, the percentage re
mainlng practically the same. This Is
one of the evils which menace the
country and from which Callforni
comparatively Is free."
My Attley is right. Tenancy is
menace to agricultural growth. It holds
back ambition. It makes men reluc
tant, apparently, to get maximum re
sults out of minimum acreage. I con
cede to him the soundness of his argu
ment. But during the entire time I
spent walking through Oregon, I did
not find 23 per cent of renters. 'Nor 10
per cent of renters. It speaks well for
Oregon that nearly every farmer with
whom I talked owns his own farm. Nor
does any agricultural college in Cali
fornia wield the same amount of influ
ence here as the college at Corvallls
wields In Oregon. Farming Is not so
Intensified. Here Burbank seems to be
the only great teacher to whom every
farmer turns an open ear.

The first echo of the policy of the

The Water Board, noting that a large
