Xumbcrs of Others Who Are
V Able to Pay Cost.
By Providing Every Seasonable Need for Self and Home and
Making the Store a Pleasant Rendezvous for Summer Shoppers
Alleged misconduct of one of the
members of the medical staff at the
County Hospital la now under investi
gation by Dr. Harry McKay, county
physician. Without mentioning any
name. Dr. McKay told the Board yes
terday that he was making an investi
gation of the physician in question and
that it probably would result in a dis
missal from the county service.
According to Dr. McKay, this physi
cian has been accepting money from
an alleged indigent who is being cared
for by the county. According to the
county physician, the man under inves
tigation had admitted accepting 50
cents a week from an indigent patient
for signing a fraternal benefit certifi
cate which allowed the young patient
to receive $10 a week from a fraternal
organization during the time he was
County Tiot Informed.
The physician not only made the
ridiculous charge of 60 cents a week
for this service, but likewise refused
to inform the county authorities that
the patient could well afford to pay
for the treatment he was receiving, in
stead of accepting the charity of the
county, it is said.
A disclosure of this alleged petty
graft followed the receipt by Dr. Mc
Kay of an anonymous letter, in which
it was said that the patient had prop
erty and money, despite the fact that
he had Informed Dr. McKay's office
that he was penniless.
An investigation by Dr. McKay
showed that the Informant had stated
the case correctly, and the young man,
who is still confined at the hospital
convalescing from an appendicitis
operation, will be compelled to repay
the county for his hospital and medical
Many Impostors Found.
The facts disclosed by Dr. McKay, as
a result of this investigation, reveal
Just one of countless incidents of im
postors who are "working" the county
for free medical and hospital service.
Dr. McKay said that Investigation had
revealed that one woman worth $150,
000 had come to the county for aid, say
ing she was penniless, while an "in
digent" Austrian had been admitted to
the hospital. A nurse happened to lo
cate a checkbook beneath the Aus
trian's pillow one morning, showing
that he had an account of several hun
dred dollars and he. too, will be forced
to pay for all treatment he receives.
Upon recommendation of Dr. McKay,
the Board yesterday authorized the use
of an application blank which all ap
plicants for free treatment will be com
pelled to sign hereafter. This will com
pel all people seeking county aid to
take an oath that they are penniless
and unable to employ a physician, but
they are also required to agree to re
pay the county at any time they are
financially able to do so.
With the installation of this applica
tion form. Dr. McKay believes that
much of the imposition now practiced
will be stopped. Dr. McKay was also
authorized to pay internes $50 a month
hereafter after it was shown to be ab
solutely impossible to keep competent

1800 Pieces High Grade China
French and Italian An Importer's Sample Line at
Many of These Pieces Would Cost Several Times as Much
To Import Today as We Are Asking in This Great Sale!
Because of world conditions a certain famous American importer found himself in an
anomalous and perplexing position: He had a magnificent line of samples of very fine
quality French and Italian china, but could not count on receiving from abroad the china
with which to fill the orders so liberally won through his samples. He decided to suspend
business for duration of the war. A fortunate circumstance enabled us to secure the entire
sample line of 1800 pieces on such favorable terms that we are able to divide this great acqui
sition into three wonderful lots at three sensationally low prices. We purposely refrain from
quoting any comparative prices for the disproportion between the VALUES and SALE PRICES is fairly
staggering! We content ourselves with stating that the importer himself would have to pay several times
what you are asked for many of the pieces in this sale today. ,
Fine quality French and Italian china in richly decorative effects. Included are covered vegetable
dishes, large platters, dinner and service plates, cups and saucers, chocolate pots, eugars and creamers,

Defense of Wong Wen Turns IU Me
Based on Pnrporte Case of
A light gray raincoat will prove an

murder of Joseph Gue on the night of
March 27, last, on Wontr Wen Tueng.
declared Special Prosecutor Malarkey
in his opening statement to the Jury
yesterday. The state, he declared,
would Identify the accused aa the
murderer by three or more eye
witnesses, all of whom will testify that
the gunman wore a light gray rain
coat. He also pointed out that when the
accused Chinese was caught a few
minutes later after a hard chase he
was still wearing the same raincoat.
The defense will rely upon a pur
ported case of mistaken identity In an
endeavor to have the young Chinese
acquitted. Robert Maguire, of counsel
for the defense, said in his opening
statement that it would be admitted
that Wong Wen Tueng was near the
scene of the killing on the night in
question and that he was wearing a
light gray overcoat. It will be con
tended, however, that the accused ran
from the scene of the shooting be
cause of fear.
After the opening arguments had
been concluded the jurors were taken
to the scene of the killing in order
that they might have a better under
standing of the location. Wong Wen
Tueng also was taken along.
Because of the death of Judge Brad
shaw, court was adjourned for the
afternoon but the case will be con

Obstructions Removed and Auto Quick
ly Started u Man by Campfire
GRANTS PASS, Or.. June 20. (Spe
cial.) A. N. Parsons, a prominent real
estate man of this city, returned
today from an auto trip to the Willam
ette Valley with three friends and re
ports an attempted holdup last Monday
He found the planks of . small wood
en bridge In Cow Creek Canyon torn
loose and so placed as to compel an
auto to stop on its approach to the
bridge. He stopped quickly, threw
the obstructions aside and drove on.
Just as his car started a man at a
campfire about 100 feet from the bridge
gave a whistle which Parsons thinks
was a signal to confederates.
There seems little doubt but that the
planks were deliberately placed as
found. This happened two days after
the robberies at Riddle and Canyon-vine.
