DEFENDANT MAKES PLEA
Counsel for Himself Tells Judge He
Drives Drunks Out $100 Fine
Ends Liquor Case.
THE MORNING OREGOXIAX, THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 1919.
For many months Ben Canter has
been nursing an idea that he was cut
out for a lawyer. But an unkind fate
stepped in and cast him in the role of
a vendor of drinks presumably of the
so-called '"soft" variety.
And as he poured out his thirst
- quenching concoctions to the way
farers who passed by his stand at 245
.Burnside street, he indulged in won
derful day dreams of the furor he'd
create if the time ever should arrive
when he might stand before the bar of
justice pleading1 eloquently on behalf
of some unfortunate client.
"Unfortunate client is the word.
For yesterday Ben got his chance. He
was both defendant and defense coun
sel. He pleaded his own case, and so
eloquent was his appeal that he talked
himself out of 1U0.
Canter was arrested for violating the
prohibition law. Police officers testi
fied that for several weeks they had
noticed that Cantor had a steady and
ever-increasing clientele who quaffed
frequently and copiously of the cider
and grapejuice which he offered for
This Grapejuice Had Kick.
Any time you find habitues of the
north end switching from bay rum to
prapejuice it's a safe bet the grape
juice isn't the kind that Bill Bryan rec
ommends. The "coppers" figured it
that way and had the cider and grape
juice analyzed- They found that it con
tained a heavy portion of alcohol.
Hence, Canter's arrest.
1 never let drunks loaf around my
place," pleaded Canter in his closing
argument to the court. "A f ter they
get drunk I drive "em out. The police
found some iollows drunk in here be
cause the girl who works for me forgot
to order them out after they got
That was enough for Judge Deich.
Canter's inadvertent admission that his
patrons could get "stewed" on his soft
cider and grapejuice brought fonu a
verdict of guilty and $100 fine.
Canter has returned to his soft drink
emporium. His roseate dreams of win
ning fame and fortune as a barrister
have vanished. He's willing to con
cede the wisdom of the bird who wrote
something to the general effect that he
who pleads his own case in court has
a. fool for a client.
"What have you been doing for a
living during the time you have been
here'J' questioned Judge Deich of Gil
bert Thorsen, charged with vagrancy.
"I don't care to answer," responded
the prisoner in a manner which indi
cated he wanted the world to know he
intended standing on his rights as an
untrammeled American product.
"Where did you live before coming
to Portland?" the court again queried.
"I don't believe-I care to answer that
question, either," retorted the man.
"Well," mused hte court as he pon
dered a moment, "I don't believe your
Immediate future will be as hazy as
your past. At least, we will all know
where you are going for the next 60
days. It's upstairs in the jail for
As a rule the average "copper" is a
pretty good sort of a fellow. The old
timers, at least, have been in the game
so long they're willing to overlook a
lot of minor infractions which a young
ster might regard as more serious.
It was a policeman of the old school
mho came upon a quartet of hilarious
wayfarers at First and Madison streets
during the early hours of yesterday
morning. They had just drained the
last dregs in their bottle and had
reached the stage where they all
thought they could sing tenor.
The "copper" quietly advised them
to be on their way and stop torturing
the night air with their whisky-laden
music. And then he passed along up
his beat. An hour later he returned
and they still continued their close har
mony. They then rode to jail in the

Miller iilavis, an Austrian, had $15
which he converted into a quart of
moonshine Tuesday night. He then
proceeded down Washington street,
waving the bottle alor't to let every
body know he was an opulent guy.
His luck deserted him in police court
yesterday when the court fined him
for his evening of fun.
BAKERY TO JEXTEND PLANT
Council Overrule Plea of City Plan
Application of the United States bak

East Eleventh and Everett streets was
granted yesterday by the city council.
This action overruled the recommenda

which urged that no extension on East
Twelfth street be permitted.

council and several days ago Roger
Sinnott, appearing as attorney for the
bakery, was told to proceed with plans
for the extension. The action yester

ONE GITY SALARY RAISED
FIRST DEVIATION" FROM POLICY
OF WAITING OCCURS.
Standardization of Tay Vnder Plan
of Commissioner Pier Will
Take Several Months.
Althouch recommendation of Com
missioner Pier that salary adjustment
for city employes await action of the
salary adjustment committee was fol
lowed in two instances yesterday by
the city council, one salary increase
request was. granted. -
A request for adjustment of salars
for employes in the city auditor's of
fice was denied, then i request for
increases of wapes for two employes
m the water bureau was placed on the
tahle. Later in the same session a
request for -a $5 a month increase for
a chainman in the department of pub
lic works was granted upon Commis
sioner Pier's recommendation.
Protest by Commissioner Mann, who
had made an earnest plea for con
sideration of the water bureau em
ployes request, availed nothing. In
stead, all members except .Mann
laughed heartily, apparently taking: the
whole procedure as a big Joke.
It was the first time for one week
that the 'council has swerved from the
decision of Commissioner Pier that no
salary increases of any kind be given
consideration until the committee ap
pointed by Mayor 3&ker had surveyed
the entire salary situation.
A few days aro two valuable em
ployes in the department of public
work s resigrned, to accept h igher paid
positions with'private employers. The
standardization of salaries will prob
ably take several months, and the ma
jority of employes who are dissatisfied
are willing' to await the decision of
the committee they say. providing,
however, that .no salary increases, of
any kind are granted until this re
port has been submitted to the city

RELEASE OF FOOD IS GOAL
COUNCIL JOINS TACOMA
MOVE TO CCT COSTS.
Bacon Ordered From Government to
Be Sold In Portland at 34 M
Cents a Pound.
In memorializing congress to take
immediate action to release large
stocks of foodstuffs, said to be in cold
storage throughout the United States,
the city council yesterday concurred In
resolutions adopted by the city council
of Tacoma. copies of which had been
sent to the cities of the northwest for
The Tacoma resolution cites that "it
appears that large quantities of foods
are being accumulated in cold Btorage
throughout the United States, and that
withdrawal of this food from the mar
kets is largely responsible for increas
ing the already high cost of living" and
urges northwest cities to join Tacoma
in petitioning congress for action which
will not only release the present store
of food supplies but also make Impos
sible future hoarding of food by speculators.
Action by the city council yesterday
on the resolution was taken with little
comment. Commissioner Barbur sought
to lea-rn the source of information upon
which the Tacoma resolution was based,
but as nothing in the resolution and the
correspondence from the city clerk of
Tacoma divulged this information, the
council acted on the supposition that
the Tacoma officials had good reason
for their action.
Commissioner Pier informed the coun
cil that he had ordered bacon and
canned tomatoes from the government
and was making arrangements for the
handling of It. Three firms have of
fend to assist, the city In disposing of
the stocks Meier & Frank company,
Simon Bros, and Olds. Wortman & King.
Commissioner Pier has not yet deter
mined what firm will be selected to
handle the foodstuffs and it is probable
that all three firms will be given op
portunity to turn the stocks over to
consumers at cost.
Kffort of Commissioner Bigelow to
increase the cost of bacon to 35 cents
instead of 34 cents a pound, to cover
possible shrinkage due to weighing out
of the food to the public, was defeated.
Mayor Baker said that any addition to
the price, above, freight and cartage
charges, would tend to defeat the pur
pose of the council and that the goods
must go to the public at actual cost
