No Beneficiaries Except His
Own Children.
Detailed Narrative of Events Pre
ceding Making of "Wills Pub
lisher's Character Described.
The late Henry L. Pittock believed
that he had provided amply for his
five children when he bequeathed
them each $300 a month and 50 per
cent of the annual net income of his
estate after debts were, paid, during
the course of the 20-year trust estab
lished by his will, explained O. L.
Price, executor of the will and one
of the trustees of the estate, in the
court of Circuit Judge Tazwell yes
terday. In answering; 'the charge of
Mrs. Caroline P. Leadbetter, contest
ant, that Mr. Pittock had executed "an
unnatural wilL"
The provision of the will taking
care of the children, coupled with the
trusteeship which would preserve The
Oregonian for at least 20 years and
prevent it from falling into hands un
Iriendly to the policies for which it
always had stood, carried out the
dominant desires of the publisher, it
was said.
Family JTot Actively Interested.
Members of the family of Mr. Pit
tock never had a very active part in
the handling of Mr. Plttock'a affairs,
pointed out Mr. Price in the course of
his direct and cross-examination yes
terday. Fred W. Leadbetter, son-in-law,
had been Jointly interested with
Mr. Pittock in numerous enterprises,
but had practically retired, except for
looking after property already ac
quired, it was declared. Fred Pittock
slons should have been made in his
will for his Immediate family and.
second, that he did not advise Mr.
Pittock that certain provisions of his
will were illegal. He added that he
did not believe they were.
Wishes Well Kun.
The executor denied that he had
ever received, any instructions from
Mr. Pittock concerning the conduct of
the estate after the death of the pub
lisher. He admitted a knowledge of
many of Mr. Pittock's dearest wishes
concerning his property, through close
business association with him,
"Why did Mr. Pittock desire to
place his property in the band of two
trustees instead of allowing his chil
dren to manage his estate?" Attorney
Cotton demanded of Mr, Price in the
"I don't know, but I assume that
he thought it could be handled easier

"I did not put any of those ideas
Into his head. I merely put down what

"He said. I want my orooerty to

that you were Instructed to provide

"He did so instruct me."
"Where Is your translation of those
instructions in the will?"
"There is a provision in the will
about the distribution of money after
debts are paid." The witness pointed
out the paragraph providing that,
when outstanding bills had been met,
B0 per cent of the cash on hand in the
estate should be distributed twice a
year equitably among the children.
The B0 per cent remaining was to go
for taxes, preservation of the estate
and reserve.
Instructions Are Followed.
"How , many children did Fred F.
Pittock have at the time the will
was drawn?" asked the lawyer.

"But," said Mr. Price, "Mr. Pittock
was extremely secretive about his
business and that habit applied to
members of his family as well as out
siders. So far aa I know no one ever

The witness referred to a change In
succession of trustees made by Mr.
Pittock in his last will, in which, in
stead of providing that Ed Ganten
bein or Fred F. Pittock should serve
in case of demise of trustees named,
he asked that in case of a vacancy
the surviving trustee act alone, and
in case of his death, that the Port

In the 191$ will the actual division
of the estate is not provided for until
the expiration of the 20-year trust.

"I did not. He was positive as to

I discussed the matter with Mr. 1
Pittock on several occasions," replied I
Mr. Olmstead. "I told him that I
thought it ought to be fixed some
way so that it would be held intact
after his death, pointing out that if he
met with a sudden accident control
of the bank might be in jeopardy. I
suggested - that the bank should be
protected by a trustee.
"He told me I needn't worry that
it would be fixed. I was never told
of his will."
Flue Bank Ordered.
Mr. Olmstead testified at length
concerning the Organization of the
Northwestern National bank and the
erection ot . the bank building. The
necessity of the new building was
brought to the attention of the bank
after about $200,000 had been spent
in preparing quarters in the old Mar
quam building. The sudden collapse
of a section of the building, extend
ing through the nine stories, on the
Sixth-street side, was responsible.
. "Mr. Pittock declared, after there
had been much discussion, that he was
in favor of a new building and that
he wanted a building second to none
in Portland if I could raise funds on
his credit," he said. "I told him it
would take about $1,000,000, but he
said that did not matter, be wanted
the building.
"I made about four trips to New
Tork right after that and succeeded j
in raising the money, borrowing from1
$100,000 to $500,000 on Mr. Pittock's
credit on each trip. The new build
ing cost $1,100,000."
Affairs Closely Watched.
The witness admitted that his bank
was one of the principal financial in
stitutions in the northwest and said
that its success was shown in an in
crease-of deposits from $3,000,000 in
1913 to $26,000,000. Asked concerning
Mr. Pittock's acumen and financial
ability, he replied:
In the 25 years I have been in the
banking business I never saw a bank
president give his affairs any closer
attention than Mr. Pittock. He had
splendid judgment on credits and his
advice was frequently sought and ac
cepted. It was a new game to him,
but he was very much interested in
t. He told me one time that he dis
liked the business because he had to
know too much about his friends and
neighbors. -
Though alow to make up his mind
and not talkative, he was very firm
when be had decided. As far as I
could observe he retained his ability
up to bis last sickness.
Though he came Into daily contact
with Mr. Pittock and Mr. Price, who
then was assistant to the president.
Mr. Olmstead said that he had never
known of Mr. Price exercising any in
fluence over Mr. Pittock and that he
did not think it would have been
Characteristic Is Illustrated.
The reason for his apprehension
about the stock of the bank herd by
Mr; Pittock was explained by Mr.
Olmstead as due to the fact that the
bank had been forced to borrow
money largely on the strength of Mr.
Pittock's credit and connection with
eastern banks.
Two examples of the firmness of
Mr. Pittock were related by George H.
Kelly, lumberman, from his personal
experiences. One concerned the un
successful attempts of himself and
others to persuade Mr. Pittock to re
duce the rental of $60,000 a year de

and Washington streets, or at least to
modify the lease so that the burden
The stock must not be sold because
it is apparently losing money. It
must be preserved to the last dollar!"
Lodge Relations None.
Any theory that Mr. Price might
have been selected as executor of Mr.
Pittock's will through intimacy in
fraternal affairs in which the pub
lisher took a great interest waa dis
pelled when the executor testified
that he had Joined the Masonic order
since the death of Mr. Pittock and had
taken but three degrees. Mr. Pittock
was a 33d degree Mason and an ar
dent believer in fraternal activities.
As a model when he decided on his
first and second wills, Mr. Pittock
kept on his desk a copy of the will
of Joseph Pulitzer, owner of the New
York World, said the witness. Dur
ing the drafting of the second will
Mr. Price asserted he saw a pamphlet
copy of the will of Mr. Nelson, pub
usher of the Kansas City Star, on
the desk of Mr. Pittock. Subsequent
to the execution of the second will,
the will of the late James Gordon
Bennett, Jr., was studied by Mr. Pit
tock, said the executor.
Mr. Price did not recall that Mr.
Pittock had ever given him any di
rect Instructions regarding the con
duct of his estate after death, though
he remembered many conversations
in which-the publisher had outlined
his aspirations for The Oregonian.
Share Given to Other.
Mr. Price told of the anxietv'of Mr.
Pittock to settle his wife's estate, as
though he had reason to fear Impend
ing death. He . desired all matters

Attorney's Mild Attitude.
Cross-examination of Mr. Price by

testant as basis for the court action.

due influence on Mr. Pittock during

Mr. Price why he had not suggested

Mr. Price was asked why he did not
suggest to Mr. Pittock that his son
and family were poorly provided for
under the will,, that other children
were not properly remembered and
also that several provisions of the
will were illegal.
To these question Mr. Price re
plied that he knew Mr. Pittock too
well to dare to misrrest what provt
except that, as
I was named joint executor with
Mrs. Pittock, he said: 'I want you
to have the feee.' I told him that
under the law it would be neces
sary for the fee to be divided with
Mrs. Pittock, and he said he would
write a letter to her.
'Did Mr. Pittock instruct you with
regard to running The Oregonian?"
He gave me no instructions. We
just had some general talks about
the newspaper.
Legality Not Questioned.
Asked concerning the financial con
dition of Mr. Pittock's children at the
time the will was drawn, Mr. Price
said that he had no intimate knowl
edge, but that he believed the hus
band of Mrs. Susan P. Emory of Mills
boro. Pa., was well-to-do, as was the
husband of Mrs. Caroline P. L.eadret-
ter of Portland. He declared that Mrs.
Kate Hebard and her husband and Mrs.
Louise Gantenbein and her husband
were living with the Pittocks and that
he did not know the resources of trie
husbands. He said that Fred F. Pit
tock had a salary of $200 a month on
which he may have saved something.
but that he did not know his financial
Do you mean to say that you drew

demanded Attorney Cotton.
"Knowing Mr. Pittock as I did, I rol
lowed his Instructions. As to the le
gality, I understand he had sought
outside advice In the matter.
No Gifts Received.
Mr. Price said there was no bequest
for himself in the will and that he is
drawing salary only as trustee and
executor and from his positions in the
Northwestern National bank. the
Northwestern Fidelity company and
the Portland Trust company,
Asked with regard to salary in
creases on The Oregonian since the
death of Mr. Pittock, Mr. Price said
that In addition "to the $100 a montn
increase granted Mr. Piper, the salary
was increased $360 a month to con
form to the salary which had been
paid Mr. Pittock as manager of The
Oregonian, which position Jir. jnoraen

WASHINGTON, May 28. Cross-ex

senate naval Investigating committee
was concluded today at a session
marked by heated clashes between
the naval secretary and Senator Pitt-
man, democrat, of Nevada, on one
hand, and Chairman Hale on the other.
it ear-Admiral Sims, whose charges
against the navy department brought
about the investigation, will take the
stand in rebuttal tomorrow. Chair
man Hale indicated that the admiral
would be the last witness and that
his statement would be brief.
In the course of a verbal tilt with
Senator Hale today. Secretary Daniels
threatened to carry to the full senate
naval committee a protest against the
chairman's conduct of the inquiry. The
secretary charged that a "steam
roller' was being used on him and
characterised as "unfair and unjust"
and a "stigma on the navy" a long
compilation of statistics Chairman
Hale sought to read Into the record.
Misinterpretation Is Charged.
The tabulation. Senator Hale said,
was compiled in his office from fig
ures submitted by Mr. Daniels and
related to the state of preparedness of
the major ships of the navy Just prior
to the declaration of war by the
United States. Mr. Daniels retorted
that the chairman had misinterpreted
the department's figures and that In
the Hale compilation the dreadnought
Arizona was listed as having been
"unfit to fight" 6n February 2, 1917
"The Arizona 'unfit to fight.' " Mr.
Daniels went on, "it is laughable. 1

"In 1911. Mr. OlmBtead asked me
whether or not Mr. Pittock had made

time I answered that I didn't know. I
told Mr. Pittock of the request and
asked him what I should have replied
That was' the best thing you could
have said.' Mr. Pittock told me, "If you
said vou couldn't tell, or that it was
none of his business, you might just
as well have told him that I had made
a will and I don't want it discussed.'
Will Not Heard ef.
"Later Mr. Pittock said. "Will you
please tell Mr. Olmstead that the bank
stock is fixed in trust and tell him
nothing more? I told him."
In the examination of Mr. Olmstead
by Attorney Carey, the banker was
asked if he had sought any assurance
that there was a safeguard for the

better loan it to the Pittock block
company to advance on the rent."
Influence Theory Discredited.
Mr. Kelly, who was also a director
of the Northwestern National bank,
told of an argument over salary in
creases asked by officers of the bank
In which Mr. Pittock opposed th
other directors to the last, and afte
the majority had voted for it stated
that he still was unconvinced that
it was the proper thing to do.
The witness had lived in Oregon
for 53 years and had known Mr. Pit
tock for so. From - his experience
with Mr. Pittock he was quite con
vinced that no person would hav
been able to dominate his judgmen
to any extent or influence the dispo
sition of his property in his will.
Mr. Price testified on direct exam
ination that he received $200 a month
from the Pittock & Leadbetter com
pany until the time of. Mr. Pittock's
death, but that he had been made a
director in more than 20 corporations
and in 1914 was made assistant to
the president of the Northwestern
National bank. Northwestern Fidelity
company and Portland Trust company,
devoting half his time to the three
corporations and receiving a salary
of $3000 a year for his services.
He was elected vice-president of
the Northwestern National bank after
the death of Mr. Pittock, president.
His total salary had been raised to
approximately $8000 a. year prior to
the death of Mr. Pittock, but is less
now, he testified.
Paper Actively Handled.
"There is no question but thart
Mr. Pittock was head of The Ore
gonian," testified Mr. Price. "I had
nothing o do with The Oregonian,
but I observed that Mr. Pittock kept
in close touch with affairs there
throughout the day, with the excep
tion of an hour spent at the bank
daily. He checked over advertising
increases or decreases and held edi
torial conferences with Mr. Scott dur-
J insr his life, and Mr. Piper later.
"Mr. Pittock and Mr. ieadoetter
were both men of strong minds and
controlled their own affairs. They
told me what to do and seldom asked
my advice.'
"Would you ever volunteer advice?
he was asked.
"Yes. I would, but. not often.
usually reported facts to Mr. Pittock
and was told what to do. I always
consulted him first about anything to
be carried out and did not in the
least assume to run his affairs. If
he was consulted first about an af
fair he never said anything further
about it to you regardless of whether
or not it turned out well, if it was
not taken up with him first, all he
would ever say afterward if all was
not well was, "You did not consul!
me. "
Dispositions Not Discussed.
"Did Mr. Morden have any part in
the drawing of the will of Mr. Pit
tock?" asked Attorney Carey.
"I do not think Mr. Morden knew
anything about it until after the will
had been executed." replied Mr. price
. "Did you ever talk to Mr. Morden
about the disposition Of Mr. Pittock'
"Did Mr. Morden ever suggest t
you that it would be a good idea to
have all Mr. Pittock s property placed
in trust?"
The interest of the publisher I

which had made him was emphasize
by the witness yesterday.
"The Oregonian is my creation,
child," Mr. Pittock was quoted
saying. "I want it protected. What
ever I am I owe to The Oregonia

thing I have should go to protect it.

and then put the compilation in the
record. Secretary Daniels demanded
that the senator take the stand as
a witness and take the oath before
submitting evidence. This the chair
man refused to do, and Mr. Daniels
then demanded that the person who
made the compilation be sworn as
witness. Again he was overruled.

Senator Pittman at this point pro
tested against the tabulation going
into the record and left the room
after the chairman had announced he
would not yield in bis stand.
Secretary Daniels thereupon mad
a point of no quorum. Chairman
Hale polled the committee. He an
Senator Keyes, republican, New
Hampshire, voted and the chairman
announced that he was authorized to
cast the vote of Senator Ball, re

then went into the record without
further words.
The remainder of the session was
devoted to a discussion of technical
details of navy's co-operation in the
war and a 'long debate between the
chairman and the secretary regarding
the contribution of the North Sea
mine barrage, an American project,
toward ending the submarine cam
paign. Mr. Daniels characterized the
barrage as the navy's greatest con
tribution toward defeating the U-boat
campaign, while Senator Hale sought
to show that the project had actually
little influence on ending the war.

The False and the True.
Advertising by the use of large space, the expenditure eflmgensu
of money have placed on the market, have put in yevr home, perhaps,
many articles that today have been discarded, as yon will readily admit.
Do you recall anything that has more modestly appealed to the
public than has Fletcher's Castoria: modest in all its claim, pleading
at all times and truthfully for our babies ?
The big 6plorg, the misleading claims may win for a time, tart
the honest truth-telling advertiser is like the old story of the tortoise
that beat the hare.
Mothers everywhere, and their daughters, now mothers, spesJc
frankly, glowingly, enthusiastically in praise of Fletcher's Castoria.
Speak of it lovingly as a friend that has brought comfort, cheer and
smiles to their little-one.
There are substitutes and imitations as there are for the diamond,
for anything of value. One might almost say that that which is not
copied has no value. So you have had the signature of Chas; H.
Fletcher and a copy of the genuine wrapper kept constantly before
you that you may guard against the false and the untrue. '

The only sure way to get rid of dan

stroy lt entirely. To do this, get about
four ounces of ordinary liquid arvon;
apply lt at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it In gently with the finger tips.
Bo this tonight, and by morning
most. If not all, .of your dandruff will
be gone, and three or four moae ap
plications will completely dissolve and
entirely destroy every single sign and
