Three of the 24 cases that came be
fore the Federal grand jury that ad

of the presence in Portland, of Indian
witnesses In cases involving- the selling
of liquor to Indians. A true bill was
returned in one of the three cases,

Bro"wn, George Merrit and Floyd
Brown, Klamath Indians, September
Not true bills were returned in the
cases of John Erickson, accused of
selling whisky to the Indians in Port
land, and Cain Sconchin, an Indian, ar
rested on a similar charge.
The Indians named in the indictment
against George Brown came to Portland
as witnesses in the case of Dial Chilo
QUin, who was indicted for his alleged
attack on Floyd Brown, another Indian
of the same tribe, with a knife on the
Klamath reservation June 30.
Two Too Drunk to Testify.
"When Floyd Brown and Miller George
were called before the grand jury they
were found to be too drunk to testify.
The grand jury sent them to Judge
Bean, who ordered them put In jail.
Deputy United States Marshal Mac
Swain made an investigation, resulting
in the arrest of George Brown and John
Crickson, Brown being indicted.
Of the 16 indictments, three were
secret. The other indictments are:
Julia Lockett, of Medford. indicted
for perjury in having sworn that she
had not been married since the death
of her husband, James Jackson, who
was a soldier in the United States
Army. She made false oath in applying
for a pension as a soldier's widow. It
is charged, and when shown a certifi
cate setting forth that she had been
married to John Lockett after Jackson's
death, said she had "clear forgot about
that marriage."
Nathan Schneiberg, Nick Campagnl
and Charles H. Fenton were indicted
for alleged violation of the Mann white
slave act. Roy Spear was indicted for
perjury. It is alleged that he swore
falsely at a Commissioner's hearing,
where he was charged with violation
of the Mann act, in saying that he had
not been in The Dalles since 1905 and
had never been in Pendleton.
Liquor Charges Against Five.
Louis Hutchinson and John Lowe

Tourists but Six Miles From Firing
it Sarrborg Thousands
of Dead Piled In Grove.
Carl Gerlinger, of Dallas, a nephew
or Louis Gerlinger Sr., of Portland, re
turned to Portland Sunday night from
Germany. He is the first to bring first'
hand observations of one of the Euro
,pean battlefields, after an engagement
of the present war.
Mr. Gerlinger vlstte,d the battlefield
of Sarrborg just after the battle and
saw several thousand French and Ger
man dead, a number which, to him, he
said, seemed like 50,000 or more, and
was so reported at the time. During
the battle Mr. Gerlinger and his (am
ily were only six miles from the firing
line and could see the battle.
With Mr. Gerlinger were his wife
and four children, Mrs. Fred Gerlinger
and child, Mrs. Joseph Gladh, of Dal
las. Miss Sophie Bankauser. of Neu
weller, a sister of Mrs. Carl Gerlinger,
and Miss Otile Drexler, of Stundweiler!
Germany, who has come to reside wth
her uncle, P. H. Drexler, of Independ
ence, at least until the war is over.
It took the party three days and
nights to reach Rotterdam from Strass
burg and then they were forced to take
steerage to get to America. They ar
rived in New York last Monday. The
Gerlingers left for Europe in May and.
having toured all through France and
Germany, expected to leave for home
August 6, but the war interfered with
their plans.
"Two days after the battle I went
over the field near Sarrborg, and it
appeared, to me that I saw the bodies
of 50,000 dead Germans and 50,000 dead
French stacked up in heaps," said
Mr. Gerlinger last night at the Per
kins Hotel. "The bodies were so thick
that most of them were leaning against
others without touching the ground.
The French had rougnt from a grove
and the trees had been cut down as
cleanly as if by the use of axes. Be
neath were the bodies of the dead
Frenchmen. We were six miles from
the battlefield when the struggle oc
curred and could see the firing plainly
"Conditions are certainly bad in Ger-
jiiany. All men between 17 and 45
have already been pulled out and they
are now talking of mustering all men
between 45 and SO years of age. The
train service in Germany is shot all
to pieces and they are short on many
eatables. We were treated consider
ately, but the fact that I was the only
man in a party of six adultB and five
children made it rather difficult for
us to get about.
"I also saw the battlefield of Muel
hausen. While the battle's were In
progress a constant noise prevailed
which sounded much like thunder.

Mayor Makes Appeal in Behalf
of Institutions.
Funds Raised Will Be Used to Help
Unfortunate Girls and Babies
of Louise Home and Alber
tina Kerr Nursery.
There will be a good old-fashioned
tag day next Saturday. And because
that day is. planned for the benefit of
the very least of "God's little ones,"
the unfortunate girls and the helpless
babies of the Louise Home and the Al
bertina Kerr Nursery, the public is
asked by the management of these In
stitutions to give liberally.
The Mayor of the City and many oi
the prominent men and women have
promised their support. There will be
warm blankets and plenty of food lor
the children and care and housing and
good influence for the older proteges
of the institutions, if half the promises
made are kept.
Here is Mayor Albee s unsolicited
endorsement of the approaching tag
"The Portland Commons and its able
manager, w. u. Macjaren, neec no
introduction to the people of Portland.
For years the splendid work done by
this institution has been known and
appreciated, not only by the many citi
zens who realize the need for just such
help as the Commons is giving, but
who are unable to give of their time
personally to aid the work.
"It is to these citizens and to otbers
who have not, perhaps, yet heard of
the efforts of this institution to help
unfortunates, that the appeal for fin
ancial help is now made. Surely no
contribution could go 'to a better cause
than that to which 'Tag Day is deal,
cated the support of the Louise Home
and the Nursery Home Rescue Work.
"It is hoped that many contributions.

than the average man has in getting
Into a Portland "pay-as-you-enter."
His act is followed by Taylor and
Arnold, man and girl. It's an act with
snap and music. Their songs, little
heard before, are clever and enter
taining. "The Village Priest" is the only thing
solid on the bill. It's a departure from
the average lS-minute sketch, and aside
from being a good bit of acting, dis
tributes a lot of wtkejesome philosophy
and common sense, rr
Charles King as Father T Donovan is
immense. The story concerns his niece,
played by Virginia Thornton. The girl's
suitor ia portrayed by Frank Seavey,
who has played in Northwest stock
companies in the past. The two have
a quarrel over the "sphere of women"
with the result the engagement is al
most broken. The village priest does
a lot of diplomatio service and the two
are united.
Then come Niller, Packer and Selz.
It would bo hard to say what they do.
It might be best to say that they do
nothing, but the result, nevertheless.

Ethel Davis and her company are
last, but not least. It is a musical

is an interesting scene in 'which half

Druggist Fills 40 AVbisky Prescrip
tions for "Patient" In 10 Weeks.
COQTJILLE, Or., Sept. 28. (Special.)
The grand jury here returned eight
indictments Saturday- The names have
not been made public, though liquor
sales at the dry town of Myrtle Point
are supposed to be the basis. Drug
gists were subpenaed from there who
had filled prescriptions for whisky by
the thousand, and in every case the
physician's fee for writing them wbb
$1. They simply called for "Sp,
Frumenti," in quantities of one quart.
and the doss was three teaspoonfuls
a day. one patient had paid for 40
prescriptions in ten weeks.

Albertina Kerr Nursery Has
Unique Fire Drill.
Tiny Inmates Speed From Second
Story Into Arms of Nurse and
Enjoy Sensation Youngsters
Know What to Do.
"Save the babies."
That is the slogan of the Albertina
Kerr Nursery.
One of the most novel fire drills Port
land has ever seen was practiced
yesterday afternoon. The event took
place at the well-xept nursery at 129
Fourteenth street, where over 40 babies
are sheltered. The tiny mites of hu
manity were drilled in getting out of
tneir nursery in a hurry. And they
really enjoyed the initiation.
From the second story of the build
ing there is built a smooth zinc chute
that connects the upper window with
the ground. Into this chute the babies
are carefully placed, and down they
slide right into the open arms of a
nurse who waits below to catch her
precious charges.
The tiniest ones are taken down in
the arsis of a nuie. Yesterday after
noon the whole big family "escaped"
down the chute in a Tew moments. It
was a convincing demonstration of a
simple but decidedly unique and prac
tical contrivance in the shape of a fire
escape. The fire drill chute is only, one of the
many innovations Introduced at the Al-
Dertlna iverr Nursery for the safety
and comfort of the little Inmates.
A Tag day for the benefit of he
nursery and the Louise Home will be
held Saturday.
