on which she hoped she an her only
von might live In comfort the rest of
their days.
This was the contention of Attorney
Tn j. Maiarxey in nis opening argu
ment before the Jury yesterday In the
ault of Permella U Tyler against
Oorge A. Hall, a Portland attorney:
John X. Slevers, Justice of the peace
at Oregon City, and Harry and Ethel
Henderson, on trial before Circuit

ably more than 155,000 of a legacy
received by Mrs. Tyler has disappeared,
and the lawyer left a strong inference
that certain practitioners at the bar

of charges. He went back to 1915 when
"William M. Tyler, son of Mrs. Per
mella Tvler. filed suit for divoroe
gainst Vina Tyler. Tyler employed
as bis attorney. George C. Brownell, in
whose office John N. Sievers. a de
fendant In' the present case, was prac
ticing law. according to Mr. Malarkey.
Mrs. Tyler employed J. R. Greenfield to
, defend her. Greenfield at that time was
a. law partner of George A. Hall, an-
' another defendant In the present action.
Tyler secured his divorce, but Mrs.
Tyler Immediately filed suit against
Mrs. Permella Tyler for $100,000 dam

mother, according to assertions made
The coincidence, pointed out by Mr.
ilalarkey yesterday is that the alleged
extortion of $24,000 more from the 88-year-old
lady wa accomplished through
the efforts of attorneys who had been
legal associates of those who handled
the .previous case and who supposedly

Just want to tell everybody that It s all
because of what Tanlac baa done ior
me." said Mrs. Clara Kiel, resiaing i ;
500 Twelfth avenue south, Seattle,
"For a rood many years, ana con
tinued, "1 was a dressmaker and was
under such a nervous strain ail tne
time that my whole system finally got
Into a very badly rundown condition.

would not digest properly and soon
after eating a sour gas would form.
bloat me up terribly and almost cut off
my breath. My appetite left me ana
my stomach got so weak that even the
sight of food was repulsive to me. I
could eat nothing scarcely and became
so nervous and rundown that I was
forced to give up my business entirely. .
Actually I was so nervous that I could
hardly pin a skirt In place and was so
weak and exhausted that I would drop
down In a chair and feel as though I
never wanted to get up. This fermenta
tion of my food must have filled my I
system with uric acid, or other poisons.
as I suffered from rheumatism all
through my arms and legs. They were
so stiff and painful all the time that
I couldn't bend them about without
Just suffering agony, and this aching
together with my nervousness kept me I
awake most of the night. I also suf- i
fered constantly with headache and
Just felt miserable nearly all tha time.
"Finally, I made up my mind to try
Tanlac, as I had beard so many of my
friends talking about the good It was
doing, and the way It has helped me
already is nothing less than wonder
ful. My appetite was never better and
my stomach is In such a good condition
that I can at just anything I want
without Buffering the least bit from
gas, bloating or shortness of breath.
and the headaches and rheumatism
have disappeared, too. I have gained
at least 25 pounds In weight and my
nerves are so good that I can sleep
Just like a child all night long. Really,
I have not felt so well In a long time.
My son is also taking Tanlac now with
splendid results. He had been in
rundown condition for sometime and it
used to worry me terribly to see him
leave home in the mornings without I
eating a bite of breakfast. But now as
soon as he gets up In the mornings he
is ready to eat and has a fine appetite.
I have never seen or heard of a medi
cine doing what Tanlac does and 1 1
think everybody should know about it."
Tanlac is sold In Portland by the Owl

The events In which the present trial
Is concerned all occurred within a week
In January. 1918. Ethel Henderson had

protested against such a large amount
and finally compromised by the pay

woman making the claim. Siegers rep
resented Tyler. Tyler signeQ a slip

case, which never went to tha Jury
because of a technical flaw in the
pleadings. Tyler testified that Sievers

after protesting that It appeared to
him that the woman should have given

The document was signed January 21,

representing himself to be husband or
the woman instead of her brother, se
cured a warrant charging Tyler witn
a social crime. Mr. Tyler has testified
that on January 23 Mrs. Henderson
tried to get Into his rom at night. On
January 24 Tyler and Mrs. Henderson
were arrested. Tyler has declared that

made her leave at the psychological
moment the officers arrived with the

On January 2 6 Henderson filed a
suit against Mrs. Termalla Tyler for
$100,000 damages, charging her with
alienating the affections of Mrs. Hen

vera demanded that the suit be settled.
Mrs. Tyler was 111 and confined to bed.
Eh testified at the last trial that the
attorneys frightened her with threats
of Imprisonment for herself and her
on. and that Sievers, representing her,
was almost aa urgent as Hall, repre
senting Henderson, that a settlement
be made. Finally. $20,000 worth of
Stock waa paid over by Mrs. Tyler.
On January 2$, the attorneys and
Henderson are accused of dividing the
money, each attorney getting one
third. The Hendersons then fled to
Vancouver and have not been seen since.

Deputy District Attorney Dempsey
testified yesterday that Hall and Hen

warrant against Tyler, charging adult

resented that they had been watching
outside the Tyler home and had seen
Mrs. Henderson go into the room occn-
pled by Tyler and disrobe there. Tyler
has testified that Mrs. Henderson was
standing before him, nude, before he
noticed her presence In his room, and
that he then ordered her out. After
wards ha noticed she had been standing
near a window, the shade of which had
been rolled up.
In reply to the charges made by Ma.
larl:ey, the attorneys for the defense
contended that Tyler had urged all the
settlements, had acted as the agent of
Mrs. Permella Tyler, -and that every
thing done was absolutely legal and
above suspicion. All charges of con
