the office of a Boston hotel, for the
pages were filled with the names of
iNew England towns, stretching all the
; way from Long Island Sound to the
It was New England day with the
Portland Elks, and New England cer
tainly did its share by furnishing the
proper quota of visitors.
And it is to be assumed that Port
' land did its share, too, for the Port
land Elks were busy from early until
late taking the visitors on automobile
rides, entertaining them at the club
rooms and hotels, and providing many
and varied pleasures.
A most welcome and unexpected ar
rival at the Elks' heme yesterday was

grand exalted ruler, and Mrs. Leach,
who have many friends in Portland.

that he proceed In advance of the
other party. Mr. Leach Is associated
with F. M. Warren & Co., .of Portland,
handling their products in New York
"The Los Angeles convention was not
as big as the one in Portland three
years ago," said Mr. Leach, "but it was
one of the most successful In the his
tory of Elkdom." He left with Mrs.
Leach last night for Vancouver, B. C,
where he will be detained for several
days on business.
Today, however, will be the "'big
day" as far as the Portland Elks are
concerned. Grand Exalted Ruler Nich
olson and his Immediate party will
arrive on the Shasta Limited at 1:50
o'clock, and the Portland Elks' band
and a big delegation of Portland lodge
men will be at the Union Station to
Official Visits Delay.
Mr. Nicholson Is a member of the
lodge at Springfield, Mass., and started
to the Pacific Coast with the New
England Elks, who arrived in Portland
yesterday. As he is making official
visits to the various lodges in the
Pacific Northwest, he could not return
with the other New Englanders.

olson today are Fred C. Robinson, of
Dubuque, la., grand secretary, and Mrs.
Robinson; Charles A.- White, of Chi
cago, grand treasurer, and Mrs. White;

tended the Los Angeles convention, will
return home la. company with the
Nicholson party. -
Another prominent Elk who visited
Portland yesterday was Henry J.
Walter, past exalted ruler of the Phil
Two Conventions Stand Oat.
"The Elks have had only two con
ventions." said Mr. Walter, "Philadel
phia in 1907 and Portland in 1912."

Mr. Mannix and cross-examined by A.
E. Clark, attorney for Frederick A.
Krlbs and Willard N. Jones, who are
being sued lor 1614.000 by E. II. Dodge.
From Mr. Gardner, Mr. Mannix
brought forth a long list of figures
which he said proved that a timber
cruise made 12 days before Messrs.
Kribs and Jones signed their contract
with Mr. Dodge showed a discrepancy
of 80.000.000 feet from the cruise on
which the deal was made.
H. D. Langille. of the timber-estimating
firm of J. D. Lacey & Co.. was
called back to the stand and gave
some more figures on timber cruises.
These figures and others taken from
letters which had been Introduced, oc

Attorneys Clash in Court.
One clash between Mr. Mannix and
Guy C H. Corliss, attorney for Mr.
Kribs. served to enliven the morning
proceedings. Mr. Corliss objected to
a letter which Mr. Mannix wanted to
introduce. Judge Kavanaugh sustained
"Why." said Mr. Mannix. "the stand
Judge Corliss takes is a perfect ex
ample af asinlnlty."
"If I'm an ass I'm in good company."
retorted Mr. Corliss. "The court agrees
"You'd better confine your remarks
to the case, Mr. Mannix," observed the
court. "It isn't necessary to drag the
Jackass family into this controversy."
This affair smoldered until the af
ternoon when another outbreak oc
curred Ifetween the same two attor
neys. P. C. Eichhorn. an accountant,
was on the stand examining some
books. He found a small erasure.
"Judge Corliss made that erasure,"
announced Mr. Mannix positively.
"That's a lie," snapped Mr. Corliss.
Remark Sot Withdrawn.
"Come here and I'll show you." said
Mr. Mannix, and he carried the book
to Judge Kavanaugh. and the two at
torneys looked over it. Judge Corliss
admitted he had made a margin nota
tion in the book and then erased it.
"You'd better withdraw that re
mark now." suggested Mr. Mannix.
"I won't do-it." retorted the other,
and the trial proceeded.

PRISONER ALLOWED TO GO
George P. Rossman Free on Condi-
t . tion He Leave State.
George P. Rossman yesterday told
Judge Gatens that he would leave Port
land immediately for the East and
not return to this state again. On that
condition the Judge continued for one
year the indictment charging Rossman
with obtaining money by false ore
tenses. As head of the Canadian Homestead
Company, Rossman engaged in many
transactions which brought a flood of
complaints to the District Attorney's
office, and more than once he has been
before the Grand Jury. The charge
to which he indicated be would plead
guilty was that of passing a check for
3 on a local bank in which he had
no funds. A charge of larceny by
bailee was lodged against Rossman
Tuesday, but will be- dismissed when
hleaves the state. At one time Ross
man was a lawyer in Wisconsin.

ROBBER'S CAPTOR VISITS
POSTAL INSPECTOR Rl'DDIFORD
WINS CONFESSIOST UNAIDED. '
Theft of 17,000 From Wallace la 1B13
Traced After All Thought Cass
(lad Beea Dnppcd.
Charles Ruddlford, postal inspector
in charge of what is known in the serv
ice as the Spokane division, which in
cludes Washington, Oregon. Montana.
Idaho and Alaska, was in Portland yes
terday from tian Francisco and Palo
Alto, Cal., where he got the confession
and made the arrest of C. C. McDan
lela, the former Wallace, Idaho, postal
clerk who stole approximately 117.000
in Government funds from a safe in
the postofflce there.
The robbery took place in December,
1913. and there was little to cast sus
picion on McDaniels. In fact, the postal
authorities were inclined at flrit to
suspect the postmaster and his assist
ant, who were both dismissed.
Inspector Ruddlford. however, had a
"hunch" on Mctanlel. For months
this clerk, one of several others in the
office, was watched almost continually.
So quietly wad It done that the general
public and those in the postofflce. in
cluding McDaniels. supposed the cse
had been dropped.
McDaniels obtained a transfer to the
postofflce at Palo Alto. Cal. All this
time Inspector Ruddlford was working
in his own way. A short time ago he
obtained information that left no doubt
that McDaniels was the man who had
committed toe crime.
(Still saying nothing. Inspector Rud
dlford went to California. lie went out
alone to talk'with McDaniels. The con
fession of the clerk, his arrest and that
of his young wife as nn accessory fol
lowed. More than that, McDaniels told
where S13.000 of the stolen money was
hid under a chicken coop In his yard,
and that much of the $17,000 was re
covered. Later Mrs. McDaniels was released
and no charge will be placed maln?t
per. McDnniels was brought through
Portland the other day by Deputy
I'nited states Marshal Mullnall. of San
Francisco, and taken to Coeur d'Alene,
