Unknown Lad Who Led Riot
After Game in Park De
scribed by Witnesses.
INJURED YOUTH TESTIFIES
Judge CIceton Frees All bat Tbree
Before Him After Blame for
XUot Laid to Player as Vet
Unidentified Doctor Heard.
Who was the boy with the red
sweater who "slammed Palmer Pad
den In the jaw" after the ball game at
Lincoln Park last Thursday?
This question remained unanswered
during an all-afternoon hearing of
nine boy rioters before Juvenile Judge
Cleeton Tuesday. According to all the
boys, the "poke on the Jaw" received
by Palmer Padden started the riot In
which Patrolman Monish sustained a
badly Injured side and back, a park
tender was hurt and several boys from
Columbia Park were beaten severely.
The upshot of the hearing was that
Judge Cleeton dismissed all the boys
except Fred Siebel. Alex Helzer and
Biebel and Helzer boys had pleaded J
guilty. Young Spady is held as the lad
who wielded the piece of cordwood that
nearly fractured several of the police
man's ribs. The three will appear be

- Injured Boy Tells of Fight.
Victor Brown, 16. of the Columbia
Park team, told his story from the wit
ness stand yesterday. He was the
most seriously injured of all the boys,
and had been carried Into a drug store
after the melee.
"The first blow struck, if that's what
you mean by 'who started the fight.'
was when one of the Lincoln Park
kids slammed Palmer Padden in the
jaw. We was all leaving the park and
tried to keep ahead of them, but they
followed us. First this boy with the
red sweater poked Palmer Padden and
then somebody hit Hollister Madsen
and then I got a biff on the Jaw. We
ran and I was getting away all right,
but a little fellow crossed the street
and headed me off, and just as we
pot to a pile of wood he tackled me,
just like football- And thsn I went
down and they come up and several of
them hit me, and then a big boy kicked
me in the side. I don't know who did
it. I don't know a one of the Lincoln
"Pretty soon Mr. Monish got me and
tried to take me into a drugstore, and
then they swung on him."
-'Didn't you hit back?" asked T. G.
Ryan, deputy District Attorney.
"Sure I hit back, just to defend
myself. I'm pretty hot-headed."
"Do you think the other boys got
mad because you beat them In the ball
game?" asked Mr. Ryan.
"I think that was what was the
"What was the score?"
"Twenty-four to six in our favor."
"What's the matter, couldn't they
"They couldn't hit our pitcher," re
plied Victor, casting a faint smile in
the direction of several Columbia Park
lads who sat in a front row.
Winning Pitcher Introduced.
Carl Blizzard, a stocky, little 14-year-old
pitcher, was called- next from
the Columbia Park contingent.
Carl told practically the same story
as the others about the melee that fol
lowed the game.
Dr. John G. Abley, acting city health
officer, championed the Lincoln Park
boys strongly in his testimony. He did
not see the affair, but he lives in the
neighborhood and knows nearly every
body who lives there. Questioned in
formally by Judge Cleeton regarding
conditions in the Lincoln Park district
he gave some valuable information.
"I think the whole trouble arose
over racial differences," he said. "I
was in the park a few minutes while
the game was going on. I heard the
Columbia Park boys calling the others
Russians. Now we are not all Rus
sians out in that neighborhood, but
the Russians are among our best citi
zens, and the boys don't like to be
taunted on national lines.
"I don't think that park, since it
muse accommodate 1600 children, should
be fenced at all. I don't think the po
lice department should send a plain
clothes officer out there to watch the
park. No uniformed officer ever had
any trouble out there."

Little opposition was voiced to the

that the Taylor-street site was not

man was empowered to appoint one
member from each official board of the
various Methodist churches in the city
to present the proposed plan to the two
congregations and make endeavors to
secure its adoption.
Tuesday night's meeting was not offi

some of the ministers not to read the
announcement of the meeting to their

Victor Shows Effect of Hard
Practice and Deserves to WIeu
J. R. Straight, popular golfer of the
Portland and Waverley Golf clubs,
sprang a surprise Tuesday when he
humbled Rudolph Wilhelm. state golf
champion, in the finals of the Port
land Golf Club championship.
Wilhelm was considerably oft his
game and his score was 85 for two
swings around the new nine-hole
course near Garden Home as against
81 for Straight.
His driving is usually the strong part
of Wilhelm's play and in this depart
ment he was noticeably erratic.
Straight has practiced assiduously,
however, and the victory comes as a
reward for faithful priming. His
victory is all the more surprising be
cause in the recent state championship
Straight did not qualify among the
first It in the championship flight. He
came back strong, beatlna such men as
Jordan Zan, and won yie champion-
ship of the first flight. Wilhelm win
ning the championship.
The match yesterday finished on the
16th green, Wilhelm being tbree down
and two to go, but they finished the
round for medal score. While neither
man played sensational golf. Straight
negotiated the seventh hole on both
swings around the nine-hole course in
four strokes. The distance of this hole
is close to 600 yards, with a bogey
of Ave and a par of four.
Last year Wilhelm defeated Straight
In the finals for the Portland club title,
so the score is now even.
