Attorney-Plaintiff Is Bent on
i Full Disclosure.
Employes In Practically Every I)e
; partment Said to Be Taking Ad
vantage of the County.
'. "The county treasury is leaking like
a sieve and even though some volun
tary repairs may be made before I can
get all the data together. I intend to
present the results of my investigation
to the next session of the grand jury
and demand a probe into the use of
county property by county officials and
employes, which is costing the public
thousands of dollars," announced John
"fV. Kaste, a local attorney who has
worn to expose abuses of privilege
ty county office-holders, yesterday.
"Employes In virtually every depart
ment of the county government ar-e
taking advantage of county credit and
ability to buy in large Quantities, to
secure supplies for themselves at much
less cost than they would pay outside."
Jve continued. "Sometimes they take
the material they desire and say
nothing about it. Occasionally they
pay the county price, which usually
lias an attractive discount.
. Graft In Paints Alleged.
"The graft in paints and building
supplies is particularly heavy. I have
evidenoe of one instance where a
, painter employed by the county finished
a job and took several gallons of left
over paint home with him to use later
on his own house. Commissioner Hol
man bought white load from the county
at a price about $3 less than he would
have paid in the open market, and the
same amount less than the county
probably would have to pay for a new
"County commissioners and employes
ane not the only ones who should be
investigated. I also shall demand that
the grand jury look into school board
affairs before any whitewashing is
done. I want the opinion of the grand
jury on the expenditure of $10,000 by
the school board to advertise its recent
pond issue and the payment of $514 out
f school funds for the eastern trip of
School Director Thomas."
Mr. Kaste was asked what he jex
pected the grand jurors to do.
Crnxure, and More, Expected.
"I expect them to censure offending
Officers of the county and to instruct
the district attorney to bring actions
to recover losses through improper use
of county funds and property," he re
plied. "And if the grand Jury finds
that certain public officials have been
abusing the privileges of their offices,
theirearly resignation is expected by
Referring to the use of a county
truck by Mr. Holman in hauling ma
terials for his country home in Clacka
mas county, Mr. Kaste said: "A signi
ficant feature of thr! affair, which
anight be overlooked, is that Mr. Hol
man did not reimburse the county for
the use on June 21 of the truck until
July 24. more than a month later, and
after agitation had begun about his
appropriation of county tires and gaso
ir for his private automobile. He
then rushed to cover up his truck trans
action. He paid $12 to the county for
the use of the truck njne hours. The
rental rate of county or state high
way commission trucks to outsiders is
$3.f0 an hour, though that includes a
driver and helper."
Mr. Muclc AIho Involved.
Multnomah county paid for the auto
mobile, the tires and gasoline used by
Commissioner Muck on a six-day vaca
tion trip into eastern Oregon, com
pleted August S. said Mr. Kaste. In
fact, he asserted that it was the in
dignation of the other county commis
sioners, Messrs. Hoyt and Holman, on
lir. Muck's return, which caused the
car to be turned over to Roadmaster
Katchel instead of being left for the
V&e of Mr. Muck.
The commissioner left July 30 and
returned August 5 from his extended
trip. He used the automobile which
was purchased by the county in 1918
for $1450, assigned to the use of Judge
Tazwell. wrecked while being driven
by the Jurist, May 24. 1919. repaired at
a cost of $510 after $47S had been re
fused for tlve wreckage, and then placed
at the disposal of Mr. Muck.
Mr. Muck justified his action by
Baying that he inspected paving and
roadwork in eastern Oregon during his
trip, which was, he said, his first vaca
tion in three years' service "as com
missioner. Itond Inspection Questioned.
"But the car was used on a vacation
trip, in which it is safe to say very
little road inspecting was done, and
the taxpayers footed the bill as usual,"
commented Mr. Kaste.
The injunction proceedings instituted
by Mr. Kaste against the county clerk
to prevent paying out warrants for
3:2 in satisfaction of bills contracted
by the county commissioners for gaso
line and oil used in their private auto
mobiles, is set for hearing before Judge
&avanaugh this morning.

Make Cherry Credit
Doubly Interesting
The convenient terms upon
which one may buy at Cher
ry's are not alone responsible
for the great popularity or
this store among both men
and women. Its popularity
is rather to be found in a
!j in I combination of many good
VLl features first of all in VAL
V UES, and in STYLES, not to
forget the spirit of friendly
accommodation which seems to ani
mate the whole institution.
Cherry's chain of stores, with their
unusual facilities for buying and keep
ing in constant touch with the first de
velopments in Fashiondom, are always
a little in the lead in styles.

this store the woman purchased mer
chandise to the value of $144.32 and
raid for it with a check, which she
signed "Mrs. Frank Evans, 1025 Beek

same woman wrote a check for $250
to pay for two diamonds which she
had selected. When he objected to tak

plied. "Oh, very well. Take the check
to the bank and cash it, and I will call
for the diamonds later." She left the
chock in his hands, but did not return
for her diamonds.
At Llpman, Wolfe & Co.'s store she
ueed another worthless check to pay
for a $65 suit. Other stores were re
