Circuit Judge Kavanaugh.
The receiver has ample power to
take charge of, to operate; lease or sell
the properties. They consist of 28 acres
on the Oregon Slough, with a deep
water frontage of 2000 feet, two large
sawmills, with a combined capacity of
600.000 feet a day; an electrical power
plant appraised at $200,000, and an elec

The Monarch Lumber Company was
organized in 1910 by Lester W. David
with a capitalization of $3,000,000. Mr.
David became president, Seventy-five
per cent of the stock was held by the
parent concern, the David Investment
Company, of which Lester W. David
was also president.
In 1911 the company met with finan
cial reverses and secured a loan of
$264,000 from the Assets Realization
Company, of Chicago, executing its
notes for $300,000 secured by a trust
deed on all the property. The opera
tion of the property during the follow

to the property, and that all deeds and

Kavanaugh further held that legal title

in which his wife and Lieutenant-Colo

charged with murder. Spanell's Bob-
Ding was echoed by spectators and
court officers, whose sympathies had
been aroused to a high pitch that was

closed his story with the declaration:
I never shot my wife. Butler moved

The story of the killing, which oc
curred in an automobile near Alpine
last July, as told by Spanell, accused
Butler of being unduly attentive to
Mrs. Spanell, culminating with the oc
casion when Spanell said he saw his
wife leave Butler's room, where she
had gone with Mrs. Butler, and said the
Army officer had insulted her.
The fatal shooting of Mrs. Spanell
and Butler, Spanell testified, followed
a fight in the automobile as a result
of Incidents which occurred earlier in
the evening. The story of the shoot
ing was preceded by a long narration
of incidents in which Spanell charged
Butler had paid undue attention to the
defendant's wife, "trying to show her
off," and leading up to the evening of
July 20. when, he said, he saw Butler
hurriedly and excitedly leave his

Mrs. Spane.l emerge from Butler's
room, where she had gone with Mrs.

said he remembered calling Butler to
the automobile. He said he did not
recall whether his little daughter left
the car. After driving a few blocks,
Spanell testified he asked Butler "what
he had done upstairs." Butler replied
"nothing," that Mrs. Spanell was "just
excited" and misunderstood him.
Spanell then repeated what he said
was the argument that followed.
Then, Spanell said, he received a blow
on the back of his head. Butler grap
pled him and pushed his head down
on the steering wheel. "I then thought
of the gun in a pocket of the car and

E. Lemerle, a Frenchman, followed
the sea. But the uncertainties of a sea
faring life and the small rewards wor

Lemerle sailed on a packet bound for
America a few days later. That was 10
years ago. His daughter was fast
reaching young womanhood; his son
was years old.
He fought before the mast in the
stormy rounding of the Horn. At last
he set foot in Portland, and vowed that
he would nevesi again sign up for the
sea. His home was to be in the land of

in knocking at the door of even the
most humble. Then, in time, he would
be joined by his wife and children, for
whom he would prepare a modest home.

But gold, it seems, was not to be

He finally got what was only a job.
He became a dishwasher at a local hos

princely remuneration of 30 a month

monthly to his wife and children.

$4 a month, had he not preferred to put
enough of that aside to permit him to
send for his family eventually.
For three years he labored there.
Then he cut his wrist, infection set in
and blood poison caused him to lose the
use of his right hand.
Still he washed dishes and even made
small sums by doing chores away from
the hospital. The day came when he
had money enough saved to send for his
family. Joyfully lie wrote his wife. An
answer came back after months of
waiting. She had an excuse for not
coming at once; the daughtrr expected
to be married.

could furnish a bumble home. Repeated
appeals to his wife brought evasive an
