"GUILTY" PLEA ENTERED
ERNEST II. CARPENTER, PARTNER
OF MRS. HEIM, SEEKS PAROLE.
Judge Morrow Decllnee to Act With
out Consideration and Leniency
la Opposed by Prosecution.
Entering a plea of guilty to a charge
of obtaining money under false pre
tenses. Ernest H. Carpenter, formerly
a shoe salesman of Portland who last
December Joined with George Hammond
and Mrs. Kota Pierce Helm, known as
"June the Bloi.de," in passing forged
checks, asked Judge Morrow that he be
sentenced and paroled. The court, aft
er listening yesterday to pleas for
mercy from Carpenters attorneys, said
he would not decide the matter then
but would pass sentence September 21.
"Mrs. Helm, who was not entitled to
the faintest consideration." said Judge
Morrow in addressing Carpenter, "was
paroled and now it appears that you
consider you are left to be mad the
scapegoat. I want to consider this
matter and will not decide it today."
"This defendant is not entitled to
tho same consideration as Mrs. Helm,"
said Deputy District Attorney Murphy,
"for he was in the business of passing
bad checks from December to June and
was involved in passing about 20
checks. He has been shown generosity
by the Grand Jury in that the charge
of forgery was reduced to that of ob
taining money under false pretenses,
thereby reducing his possible penalty
H. O. Carpenter, the aged father of
the prisoner, made a heart-broken plea
for mercy and the young man's mother,
his wife and young daughter were in
court. The defendant, who is 26 years
old, submitted through his attorneys
a number of letters from local depart
ment stores, where he had been em
ployed, testifying to his good character
prior to the time he fell in with Ham
mond and "June the Blonde."

T FIRST IN 7 YEARS
DAVID RICH, OF NEW YORK,
AMAZED BY PORTLAND.
Visitor to Preside Over Fred A. Jacobs
Company's Auction at Hotel Port
land Today and Tomorrow.
David Rich, New York member of
the firm of A. J. Rich & Co., is in Port
land to take charge of the two-day
auction sale to be held by the Fred A.
Jacobs Company at the Hotel Portland
today and tomorrow. Mr. Rich has been
passing the past two or three days
looking over Portland and inspecting
the various properties to be placed on
sale. This is his first visit to Portland
after seven years.
"I am astounded to find Portland so
marvelously grown up," said Mr. Rich.
"I return to find the city with a quarter
of a million people, some of the finest
office buildings in the world, and East
Portland alone much larger than Port
land itself was seven years ago. I am
impressed with the tremendous and
prosperous back country, which will
continue to make this city thrive in
spite of any outward conditions, aim
Portland, because of its strategic situ
ation, always will be the most Import
ant city in the Northwest.
"We shall experience little bad ef
fects from the present war in Europe,
and, ultimately, this war is bound to
make the United States the money,
food and manufacturing center of the
"As to the auction sale, indications
point to a large crowd being present,
and there ought to be spirited bidding.
This method of selling property should
grow popular in the West, as it is more
and more becoming the custom in New
York and other Eastern cities. The
Fred A. Jacobs Company deserves
great credit for this auction, and I
trust they will reap the benefit in a
great many sales today and tomorrow."
It is expected that the dining-room
of the Hotel Portland will be taxed to
its capacity this afternoon on the fall
of the gavel.

BY-PRODUCTS DATA IN
COMMITTEE APPOINTED BY APPLE
CONGRESS TO REPORT TODAY.
General Selling Agency Reported Prob
able Suggestion As Means of
Adding to Cannery Profits.
Headquarters for the by-products co
operative committee, which will hold
an open meeting in Portland today,
have been opened at the Commercial
Club. The committee was engaged yes
terday in assembling the data it has ac
cumulated during he past year and
will submit reports at the meeting this
this morning, beginning at 9 o'clock.
The by-products committee was ap
pointed at the National Apple Congress
at Spokane last Fall and in the inter
vening 10 months has been studying
marketing conditions. It is understood
that the committee will recommend the
formation of a general selling agency
through which all canned and evaporat
ed products will be distributed through
the markets of the world. It is argued
that this plan will reduce materially
costs of marketing to all canners. A
standard pack will be fixed, skilled
processors supplied to the various can
neries and a plan for conducting busi
ness will be outlined which will re
duce costs from 25 to 50 per cent.
Information In the hands of the com
mittee is that a large attendance is to
be expected from Western Oregon and
Western Washington points.

Portland, Eugene & Eastern Railway
