Percy Allen on Stand in Dodge
Lumber Trial to Tell of
Alleged Bond Offer.
Witness Says Attorney Xash Asked
Effect Tender Won Id Have la
Settlement of $614,00 0 Case
and Gives Conversation.
In an effort to substantiate charges
that $25,000 worth of bonds were of
fered to E. H. Dodge to influence his
testimony in the J614.000 timber land
suit against Willard N. Jones and
Frederick A. Kribs, Mr. Dodge's at
torneys yesterday called to the witness
stand Percy Allen, a Portland lumber
Mr. Allen told of a telephone con
versation between himself and William
. 8. Xash, attorney for Mr. Kribs, early
In the month of June.
"Mr. Nash called me up," said Mr.
Allen, "and said: I've' been awful hard
on Dodge. I haven't said anything to
Jones and Kribs about this, but I
think I can work out something for
tiodge here. 1 want to know what you
think Dodge would think if I offered
him $25,000 worth of the J. K. Lumber
Company bonds to get him to use his
Influence to settle the case.'
Bond DUrniwloii Related.
"Mr. Nash wantedvme," ' said Mr.
Allen, "to ask Mr. Dodge if he would
help try to work out a settlement in
the lawsuit provided they gave him
what was left of the J. K. Lumber
Company bonds."
"Did you think Mr. Nash offered
him the $25,000 worth of bonds in
order to influence his testimony in this
suit, or to get him to help settle the
suit out of court?"
This question was asked by A, E.
Clark, chief counsel for Mr. Kribs. Mr.
Nash leaned forward eagerly to catch
the answer.
"I understood it was to, help settle
the case," answered the witness.
Mr. Nash sighed and smiled slightly.
Efforts of both sides to shake the
witness in either direction were un
availing. "Have you talked with Mr. Nash
about this?" asked Mr. Mannix.
"What did he say?"
Fall Testimony Advised.
"He asked me to be careful what
T said. He said to be sure I told all;
that if I wasn't careful in my testi
mony it would ruin him forever. He
wanted me to be sure to tell every
thing all the facts, he said."
Mr. Allen's efforts at all times, ap
parently, were as a peacemaker.
"Mr. Nash called me up," he said,
"and wanted to know how we could
reconcile the figures in the complaint
with the figures in Mr. Dodge's books.
The complaint said Mr. Dodge had $500,
000 when he came here from San Fran
cisco, and his books didn't show that
much. I told him no doubt Mr. Dodge
himself could give a satisfactory ex
planation, and I would ask him.
"We had a meeting In my office, and
Mr. Nash at first seemed very unfriendly
toward Mr. Dodge. He eaid something
about making him look wirough the
bars if he colored his testimony against
Kribs and Jones.
Compromise Thought Afir.
"Somehow the conversation - worked
around and we got near a settlement
of the whole case. This was before the
conversation about the $25,000 worth
of bonds."
"How about these figures in the com
plaint and in Mr. Dodge's records?
Could you reconcile them?" asked Mr.
"No, sir."
"They didn't Jibe?"
"No, sir."
Yesterday morning Mr. Clark con
cluded his cross-examination of Mr.
Dodge without asking him about the
bribery charges. Mr. Mannix did not
begin his redirect examination at once,
but called J. F. Cox, a timber cruiser,
who had cruised part of the Skamania
County tract involved in the suit.
Late yesterday Mr. Mannix called Mr.
Kribs to the witness stand to identify
a big bunch of letters written about the
time an effort was being made to float
the $900,000 bond issue on the timber
land. Mr. Kribs will resume the stand
this morning.
Mrs. Emma Golufo, Office Seeker, Is
Committed to Asylum.
Mrs. Emma Golub, Socialist leader
and candidate for office at several re
cent elections, was adjudged insane yes
terday after an examination by Dr.
William House, and probably will be
sent to the asylum at Salem today.
Insanity charges were preferred
against Mrs. Golub as a result of a re
cent attack on Police Captain H. A.
Circle, whom she declared o be her
worst enemy. Testerday at the County
Jail she refused to answer questions
put to her by Dr. House, but offered no
violence. .
Recently Mrs. Golub sold all her
property in Portland and said she was
going to Honolulu to meet her husbanu.
Early Decision ty Supreme Court on
Ordinance Expected.
Whether jitneys shall be regulated
In accordance with the ordinance
adopted by the voters June 7 is up to
the State Supreme Court. Briefs and
arguments were presented before the
Court yesterday by City Attorney La
Roche and Deputy City Attorney Tom
llnson, representing the city, and A.
W. Lafferty, representing the Jitneys.
An early decision is expected by Mr.
La Roche. He said upon his return
to Portland that the Court wants to
get ita docket clear before the vacation
in August. Mr. La Roche says he has
cause to believe that the decision will
be rendered within a short time.
Noted "Trust Company" Lawyer
Hurries Away to San Francisco.
Samuel f ntermeyer, of the law firm
of Guggenheimer, Untermeyer & Mar
shall, one of the greatest law firms
of New York, visited in Portland yes
terday for just a little more than two
hours, before he was obliged to hurry
down to Flavel to take the steamer for
San Francisco.
Mr. Untermeyer and his party, which
consists of ten persons. Including his
family, came West via the Canadian
Pacific and are on their way to San
Mr. Untermeyer and his wife made
a quick run about the down-town sec
tion of Portland before boarding the
train for FlaveL and Mr. Untermeyer
filled in the moments of the sight
seeing trip In conversation with friends
who had met him at the depot.
Samuel Untermeyer has been one of
the most prominent "trust busting"
lawyers in the United States, as wel
as one of the strongest corporation
Most of his fights In big corporation
cases have been in the defense of the
Interests of minority stockholders as
against majority stockholders.
He reiterated yesterday his well
known stand favoring the regulation
of the stock exchanges by the Federal
Government to prevent wild-cat specu
lation and manipulation of the market.
Expressing himself opposed to Gov
ernment ownership of railroads, he de
clared yesterday that he favored
strongly Government-owned steamship
"It takes millions to build up steam
ship lines and to find markets for our
products," he eaid, "and requires more
money as a rule than a group or in
dividuals can raise. Railroads can take
care of themselves, but with steamships
it is different until they have been
firmly established."
As to business conditions, he de
clared that, excepting in lines of In
dustry occupied in production of war
material, conditions are not the best,
and predicted advances In the rates of
Interest soon.
Mr. Untermeyer's private car will be
sent from Portland and will be wait
ing for him when he Is ready to leave
San Francisco.
Harold Lorkwood and May. Allison Are
Starring in Bis; Feature Play
With Many Thrills.
"Secretary of Frivolous Affairs." a
Mutual master picture, featuring liar
Old Lockwood and May Allison, is a big
Harold Lockwood la erreury of
J-'rl voIoum Affairs."
screen production that will open at
the Orpheum Theater tomorrow. Di
rector Ricketts merits unstinted praise
for the staging of the scenes in this
splendid picture. Many of the Inte
riors are elaborate In structure and
appointments and there are several
beautiful exteriors, all in perfect har
mony with the requirements of the
story. In conjunction with fine pho
tography the scenes are pleasing.
May Allison and Harold Lockwood.
In the leading rcHes of Lulie and Hap
Hazard, claim chief attention through
out. Miss Allison is a beautiful girl
and a talented actress, and Mr. Lock
wood is a good-looking young man
and an Impressive and popular actor.
The story opens with Lulie In
search of a Job, which she obtains
when the wealthy Mrs. Hazard makes
her her secretary of frivolous affairs:
in other words, her social secretary.
Her most important duties, Mrs
Hazard indicates, are to separate the
son of the house. Hap Hazard, from
an older woman with whom he Is In
fatuated, and the daughter from a
young author who has everything but
money. She succeeds in the first of
these commissions, but in the latter
rightly enough she fails.
One of the most exciting chases re
cently shown In motion pictures oc
curs in this big feature, and many
other thrilling scenes keep up the in
tense interest throughout.
Today are the last times "The Island
of Regeneration" will be shown at the
Orpheum. This great Vitagraph blue
ribbon feature, with Edith Storey and
Antonio Moreno In the leading roles,
is superior to any feature thus far
shown at the Orpheum.
Alleged "Stool-Pigeon" Blamed for
Firemen's Row.
Sledding is decidedly hard for "stool
pigeons" in the fire bureau, judging
from testimony taken yesterday by the
Municipal Civil Service Board In the
case of J. W. Bannon, a fireman dis
missed recently for "unbecoming con
duct." Bannon was charged with drinking
and with having a woman at the fire
station. Several firemen who had
worked with him in the service de
fended him, saying that the charges
were untrue. It was declared by sev
eral witnesses that the charges were
originated by a "stool-pigeon." The
name of the alleged stool-pigeon was
not brought out. The case will be
continued this afternoon.
State Health Officer Administers
Pasteur Treatment to Ten Persons.
Dr. Calvin S. White, State Health
Officer, is administering the Pasteur
treatment to 10 persons from various
sections of the state who have been
bitten by rabid dogs and coyotes. Four
persons from Tlgardville, who had been
bitten about a week ago by a dog be
longing to Dr. F. D. Vincent, started
the treatment yesterday. They are the
two sons of Dr. Vincent, 17 and 18 years
old; Gladys Retzlaff and the 4-year-old
son of Theodore Kesler. The dog was
examined in Dr. White's offlce'and found
to have had rabies.
Others taking the treatment Include
four men who were bitten by coyotes
in Eastern' Oregon, one man from Lake
view and one from Independence.

Legislator, .South of Arctic
Circle First Time in 12
Years, Finds Wonders.
M. I. Moran Declares North Country
Is Barely Touched and Predicts
Portland Will Reach Out for
Share of Commerce.
"The only thing P.lp Van Winkle
had on mi was that he slept 20 years
and I only 12." said M. F. Moran. mem
ber of the Alaska Legislature, yester
day. Mr. Moran visited Portland yester
day for the first time In 20 years. He
s returning to his home at Shungnak.
on the Kobuk River. This Is the first
tl:e he has been south of the Arctic
Circle in 12 years.
Although he has been "south of 63"
for several months on this visit, the
wonder has scarcely left Mr. Moran's
"Automobiles, moving pictures, and
all such things," remarked he "they
didn't have these when 1 was here
last. I saw an automobile in San
Francisco years ago. It was quite a
curiosity. About three years ago 1
saw one In Nome. One of the rich
fellows shipped It In to run up and
down the streets and make people
UtrmtliK Tale Told.
He had an Interesting tale to tell,
and hiB fund of information about the
Alaska country was seemingly Inex
haustible. "After they elected me to the Legis
lature last Fall I bad to start for
Juneau right away so I wouldn't be
frozen up. Shungnak Is 600 miles
from Nome. We got a little schooner
to carry us to Valdea. We were ship
wrecked at Sand Point, near Poploff
Island. The steamer Dora picked us
up there later.
"You see. I have to go to Juneau by
way of Seattle. There Is no steamer
line running from Nome to Juneau, and
I had to get out of Nome before the
freeze-up. We left there November
10, the latest, I think, that a ship ever
got out. I went to Seattle, then to
Great Bend, Kan., my old home, to
visit my relatives. Coming bark. I
stopped at San Diego and San Fran
cisco, and saw the fairs, or as much
of them as had been completed. That
was In February. I had to be In
Juneau for the legislative sessions
during Match and April.
Another Mad.
"The north country was still frosen
up and I came back to the States for
another visit after the Legislature ad
journed." Mr. Moran's mileage as a legislator
probably was the largest ever paid to
a member of a local Legislature. He
got $980 from the Government at the
rate of 16 cents a mile. This figures
up 6533 miles that he traveled to get
to the capitol.
"What sort of a place is Shungnak.
where you live?" Mr. Moran was asked.
"It's 500 miles from Nome and 250
miles inland from the mouth of the
Kobuk River. There are about 0
white people there and 300 Eskimos.
The town I named It myself derives
Its name from Jade Mountain, which
Is near by. Shungnak Is the native
word for Jade.
Vea-etablea liaised There.
"We raise our own vegetables there.
Fve seen turnips raised on the Kobuk
River that weighed five pounds. You
must figure that these vegetables
grow night and day. The season Is
short, but it's all daylight.
"Several years ago I started a fur
farm up there Just as a diversion. I
have every kind of fox sliver, black,
white, blue and red. I want to enlarge
this, too, for I believe It Is one of the
coming industries of Alaska. The
country Is naturally suited for It.
"I didn't know until I came out last
Fall that the Canadians were running
fox farms on Prince Edward Island.
They've been doing It for 20 years, but
I hadn't heard of It.
"Alaska, as a whole. Is booming.
Copper has gone up. and that means
good times. When I left Juneau they
were milling 2000 tons a day. and
were enlarging their plant, so that by
August 1 they expect to be milling $000
tons a day. They have this reduced
to a minimum cost. too.
Hud to Opra Huge Seetloa.
"The Alaska railroad will be finished
as far as the coal fields by November,
and that will open up another huge
section of country." Eventually, It Is
planned to run the road to Fairbanks
In two or three years, maybe."
Mr. Moran waxed enthusiastic when
he began telling of Alaska's resources.
"Do you know how Alaska stands
on fish? Leads the world in salmon
production, absolutely.
"Why. people think Alaska is on the
decline. Let me tell you. that country
Is Just beginning to be developed.
They've scarcely touched it yet. Peo
ple down here don't realize what wa
have up there.
"As soon as Portland peonle realize
the immense resources of Alaska, they
will reach out and cut into this Seat
tle trade. That's what has made Seat
tle, the money brought down from
Alaska. If it wasn't for that Seattle
would be a mere stopping place be
fore you got to Portland.
They will come to It. too. Port
land will get some of the Alaska trade,
but they must realize first what
Alaska Is doing.
"Alaska X From Waste."
"Most people think of Alaska as a
frozen waste. It isn't at all. Inside
the Arctic Circle people think they're
wnnin a stone's throw of the North
Pole. Why, the Kobuk River Is nav
igable to vessels with, a two-foot draft
for 300 miles. My district Is the
farthest north in all Alaska, and we
raise our own vegetables.
The meat problem, up there is be
ing solved by the Government's In
troduction of reindeer. That's getting
to te a mg industry, and has grown
out of nothing.
"Most people don't know, either.
that a threshing machine was shipped
Into Tanana Valley last year. It
wasn't for a curiosity, either. It wa.
because they needed It to thresh their

Establishment of a municipal paving
repair plant Is to be sought by Com
missioner Dleck. of the municipal de
partment of public works. In his bud
get of special appropriations for next
year. Announcement to this effect was
made yesterday.
The proposed plant would cost prob
ably $10,000 and be fitted for the repair
of pavements of all types. Including
concrete and asphalt. Mr. Dleck says
this Is, a necessity, owing to the vast
amount of pavement which will come
under munlplcal maintenance at the
end of this year.
It Is his plan If the plant Is estab
lished to guard, all pavement carefully
and repair holes as soon as they de
velop, so as to curb the rapid failure of
pavement, due to the enlargement of
small holes by heavy traffic. It Is es
timated that the plant can be so oper
ated that pavement can be repaired
much cheaper than by employment of
uavlng concerns.
