SUFFERING IS PICTURED
Kcglcut of Interest of 2-Ycar-OId
Vcona Gulliford by Former Dem
ocratic Nominee Alleged.
Dr. C. J. Smith, former Democratic
nominee for grovernor of Oregon, is
accused of misconduct in the admin
istration of the estate of the late
AVilltam C Gulliford in a petition
filed in the probate department of the
circuit court yesterday by Mrs. Lydia
Pauson seeking hia removal as ad
ministrator. Optn neglect of the interest of 12-ycar-old
V'eona Constance Gulliford,
Hole heir at law, is charged by Mrs.
Patison. who asserts that the admin
istrator's "sole desire seems to be to
take care of the interests of Jacob A.
Gulliford and Martha K. Gulliford,
ttrandparents of the minor, who have
filed suit against the estate for
1S, 000, which amount they have
Mated would be increased to S-S.0U0
before the trial." . Tlic property is
valued at approximately $28,000 and
virtually would be wiped out if the
liliffatton is successful, maintains the
Atipolntmrnt la Aaked.
Mrs. Katison is a grandmother b
the child, whose custody she has.
Mrs. Krank i. Gulliford. who died be
fore her husband, William C. Gulli
ford, was the daughter of the peti
tioner. Mr. Gulliford died on January
6. 1919, and Dr. Smith was appointed
administrator January 16, 1919.
The petitioner, who seeks to be ap
pointed administratrix after the re
moval of Mr.- Smith, asserts that the
present administrator said openly
that Veona's interest made no dif
ference to him, that he was only look
ing out for the interest of Jacob
The most sensational item in tne
charges filed is the accusation that
Mr. Smith urged Mr. Culliford to file
a claim against the estate for which
Dr Smith was administrator, and in
closed in a letter to Mr. Gulliford a.
draft of a letter demanding payment
of the claim, which Mr. Gulliford is
requested to copy in his own hand
writing and send back as a claim
against the estate. This letter was
discovered by the daughter and
opened by mistake, it is asserted.
Mrs Patison asserts that Dr. Smith
would not list an automobile among
h uosi,.! of the estate until forced
to do so. and then sold it for far
less than its value, ahd that he
wished to give another automobile
w hich had been, owned by the de
ceased outright to Mr. GulUfor.f and
was prevented fi-om doing so om.v
by protest of the petitioner and
Annoyance I Alleged.
Dr Smith Is said to have annoyed
the petitioner and the child of whom
he has custody, trying among other
things to have canceled the contract
for the house in which they are liv
ing . In conclusion. Mrs. Patison de
clares her belief that Dr. Smith will
not defend the suit of the GulUfords
sigainst tho estate any more than s
absolutely necessary and that he
should be removed as administrator.
