Voice in Direction of
DR. WILSON'S NAME USED
Physician. Testifies He Learned of
Membership First From Word
Sent by Prosecutor and Xever
v"hen Rodney L. Glisan, prominent
Portland lawyer and business man,
bought 330 shares of United States
Cashier Company stock in May, 1912,
bo was put on the much-discussed "ad
visory board" and received a special
contract to that effect, he testified in
the Cashier Company trial yesterday.
Under this contract he and other
members of the advisory board, repre
eenting not to exceed 30,000 shares, it
was set forth, were to divide 5 per cent
of the gross proceeds from the sale of
money machines until dividends reached
15 per cent
Several witnesses have testified and
many, letters have already been in
troduced by the Government to. show
that this "advisory board" was a sort
of paper honor, used with good effect
by salesmen to flatter prospects into
Advisory Board . Attracts Bayers .
If they bought so much stock, wit
nesses said, it was represented, they
would be made members of the "ad
visory board" with a voice in the
councils of the company, and in some
cases, like that of Mr. Glisan, with con
tracts conferring preferred stock priv
ileges. As previous testimony has
shown, this prospective honor fre
quently brought prospects into line.
In other cases, according to wit
nesses, influential buyers of stock
would be put on the "advisory board"
without their knowledge and their
names used in advertisements to give
weight to the company's claims.
"Did you ever receive any notice of
your appointment to the advisory
beard of the United States Cashier
Company?" asked United States At
torney Reameg of Mr. Glisan.
"I received no notice except the origi
nal agreement to become a member, as
contained in the contract, which was
sent me by Mr. Menefee in May, 1912."
Use of Name Is Stopped.
"Did you ever take any part in the
management of affairs of the com
pany?" "None whatever.
"Ever see your name used in ad
vertisements in the papers?"
"Yes." responded Mr. Gltsan. "I saw
it used in a list of officers, directors
and members of the advisory board."
"What did you do?" inquired the
United States Attorney.
"I wrote a letter to Mr. Skidmore,
with the company, saying I was dis
pleased at having my name used that
way, and did.not wish to have it hap
"I didn't see it so used again.
Mr. Glisan was not cross-examined.
Another witness called by the Gov
ernment to testify to having been a
member of the advisory board was Dr.
H. C. Wilson, who has practiced medi
cine in Portland for 33 years.
Doctor Vmavrare of Honor.
Dr. "Wilson, said he hadn't known
about his membership on the advisory
board until he got a letter from the
United States Attorney about three
months, ago asking about it.
"That was your first notification?"
"To the best of my knowledge, It
was." said Dr. Wilson.
He testified that he had never at
tended a meeting nor known about one.
"Will you swear you never got a
notification, that you had been appolnt
' ed to the advisory board?" asked At
torney Martin L. Pipes on cross-examination.
Most of the cross-examination was
on very technical grounds, but the
points the defense sought to bring out
may be summed up briefly about as
That the patent office itself has no
Jurisdiction over patent infringements,
.and that what it considered infringe
ments might not be so considered by
a court of proper jurisdiction; and fur
thermore, that the subject of patent
rights and infringements is so technical
that it should be tried out before courts
of competent jurisdiction in patent
matters and not before a jury in
Bllyen Principles Called Present.
"No. sir; I won't swear to it." said
, Dr. Wilson.
"Will you swear that you were not
notified of the meetings?"
"I won't swear to it," said Dr. Wilson,
"but I am positive I was not."
the greater part of the day was
' taken up with the cross-examination of
E. D. Sewall, examiner in charge of
the classification bureau of the United
States Patent Office, by Joseph L, At
kins, expert on patent law, for the
Mr. Sewall's cross-examination had
begun the day previous and continued
until 3:30 o clock yesterday.
That Thomas Bilyeu received certain
basic patent rights in the first Bilyeu
patent and that these basic principles
were present in and governed the
action of machines advertised by the
company on October 19. 1911. so that
officials of the company were acting
. in good faith when they advertised that
they owned and controlled the patents.
In his testimony Thursday, Mr. Se
wall had said that the work of Mr.
Bilyeu in these money machine inven
tions was work of a high inventive
order and that the Patent Office had
been liberal in allowing protection for

Sewall in yesterday's cross-examin

the United States.
"If you want the Constitution, why
don't you go and look it up?" put in
"We are not going to try the validity
of the patents, the judge continued
. "We are interested merely in the pat

had not yet gone into some of the

National Cash Register machine.
On re-direct examination.
States Attorney Reames brought out
that the state of the prior art would
be limited to the filing date of the
Osborne patent, which was 1891.
A great part of the testimony in the
patent cases has been so complicated
and technical that a mere layman can
hardly follow it
More Letters Are Read.
' Before closing for the day the Gov
ernment introduced and read a number
of letters intended to show that of
ficials of the United States Cashier
Company were aware of the possibility
of patent complications with the Pay o

strong language used by Edward C
Baker, then auditor of the United States
Cashier Company, in a letter in 1913 to

Menefee, president of the company,
spoke of having knovn of the Payo
graph for three years. The letter was
written in June. 1913.
This was all introduced to bear out
the Government's contention that offi
cials of the company were not acting
in good faith In their assertions that
they expected to have machines soon

It is doubtful if the Government will
be able to close at noon today, as an

does not end its case until Monday, the

audience at the Heilig Theater last
night by William Jennings Bryan,

Mr. Bryan's lecture was delivered
under the auspices of local charities
and as the theme implies, was a mixture
of religion, politics and social economy.
It contained, moreover renewed declara
tions of his well-known peace prin

none of his eloquence. He has the same
smooth, easy flow of language that
early brought him into prominence. He
spoke last night, as of yore, without
apparent effort. the words Appling
from his mouth like the water of a
brook flowing between Its banks.
Support of President Pledged. .
While his lecture was made tha
vehicle for presenting Mr. Bryan's
philosophy on the fundamentals of life.
its more serious parts were tempered
with a dash of subtle humor that did
not fall to win manifestations of ap
proval from his hearers.
His formal address was prefaced by
a direct reference to his late relations
with President Wilson, whose efforts to
preserve the peace of the Nation he
said he was eager to support.
None of you Is more anxious to
assist the Preeident in the arduous
work of his office than I am,' he de

He then explained the three funda

At this point he interjected his first

continued, and then aroused his hearers
to nearty laughter by adding: "I can

Taking up his serious discussion he
asserted emphatically and repeated:

"the people have a right to have what
they want in government."
