8 THE 3IORNJXG OREGONIAN, THTJRSDATf 3IAY 27, 1920 ALL P1TT0CK HEIRS ARE TREATED ALIKE No Beneficiaries Except His Own Children. MR. PRICE SHOWS MOTIVES 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 cross-examination. "I don't know, but I assume that he thought it could be handled easier by two trustees and with less annoy ance and Interference than by five children." "Did you suggest any of the plan to him?" "I did not put any of those ideas Into his head. I merely put down what ne gave me and later wrote it out in testamentary form." "What instructions did he give you which came back to- him in your lan guage as paragraph "E" of the will?" "He said. I want my orooerty to go to my children ami my children's children. " Aanit Fixed by Publisher. "How about the toOO a month to the children?" "He fixed the amount.' "Tou said in your direct testimony that you were Instructed to provide for a later distribution of the assets when the debts of the estate were paidT!. . . ..... ; "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. 1 am not certain. Five or six."

"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 knew Mr. Pittock's total income ex cept Mr. Pittock, myself and govern ment officials to whom reports were submitted." 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 land Trust company act. Provision Thought Ample. "J think there will be less trouble if I do not attempt to mention a mem. Der or my lamiiy, Mr. fittock was reported as saying. "Now 1 have - treated each child alike. In the 1912 will the five children shared alike in the estate, except for The Oregonlan trust, after the expira tion of a life interest of Mrs. Pittock. In the 191$ will the actual division of the estate is not provided for until the expiration of the 20-year trust. Mr. Price declared that Mr. Pittock had said, even in drawing up his last will, that "1 want my property to go to my children and my. children's chil dren." "When Mr. Pittock provided that $500 a month should go to each of 'I did not point it out. I don't think anyone would have spoken to Mr. Pittock about that at the time." 'Did you advise him of the condi tion that his 'daughter-in-law, Mrs. Pittock, would have possibly been left in?" - "I did not. He was positive as to his instructions. " 'Did you explain to Mr. Pittock that neither you nor Mr. Morden un der the terms of trie will had any discretion in the payment of money to the children, and could not give them more if they needed it?" Suggestions 3iot Made. I did not discuss or mention it to him." 'Was the Piper arrangement dis cussed?" "Only the first conversation I have related. 'You did not suggest to Mr. Pittock that the agreement concerning rthe tenure of Mr. Piper was entirely il legal and void and against public policy? - , 1 did not." i "Did you advise him that the alt- position as to the children and their issue under paragraph 'F' were Illegal?" I did not. But I do not want it inferred that I think it was." Did you explain to him what compensation you would receive-un der the trust?" Nothing was said about that. TOid you explain that you would mise of Mr. Pittock. 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 possible. 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 manded for the Pittock block. Tenth 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 connected with the estate concluded y January 1, 1919. Mrs. Pittock died June 12, 191S, leavitnr personal prop- rty to the value of annroximatelv $30,000. Though Mr. Pittock wan en titled to a. half interest in the estate. e wanted the entire property divided among the children, his half included. saia .Mr. price. Mr. Pittock's Interest in fraternal. civic and social affairs was consider able, as was his attention to sports. said the witness. He always attended the opening baseball game of the sea aon, was an enthusiastic rooter at football games, attended the Johnson Jeffries fight at Reno, rode horseback nd had flown in an airplane in 1917 at Santa Barbara. CaL nis uemorr was excellent: he never forgot an appointment; and the only sign vf age noted by Mr. Price in his estlmony concerning- Mr. PKtoek waa increasing, deafness and rheumatic at- tacKs, though the newspaper; owner never used a cane. He could read the inest print without glasss up to the ime of his death, asserted Mr. Price. Mr. Pittock never discussed death saia tne witness, except as in case something happens."

Cross-examination of Mr. Price by J. P. Cotton disclosed a new angle to the theory advanced' by the con testant as basis for the court action. Seeking to secure admissions of un due influence on Mr. Pittock during the drafting of the last will, the law. yer adopted a persuasive tone, asking Mr. Price why he had not suggested to Mr. Pittock changes in the pro visions of the will which would have conformed more to the ideas of the children. 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 condition. Do you mean to say that you drew up the will under Mr. Pittock's orders without regard -for the question of whether it was legal, right or justr- 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 now occupies.

Cross-ex amination of Secretary Daniels by the 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 decline to answer any questions based on such a. tabulation and de- begun about 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, I nounce it as unfair, unjust and a MOTHER!

"The first 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 would fall heavier on later years. Mr. Pittock. refused any modifica tion of the lease in spite of vigorous representations. When a San Fran Cisco banker offered to lend Mr. Pit tock any amount of money he needed when the nilhliaher nleariA an rpaann for his refusal 'fhat he owed too much money and was depending on the in come from the Pittock block to meet other obligations, Mr. Pittock was reported as replying: "If you have that much money to loan you had 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' property?" "Never." "Did Mr. Morden ever suggest t you that it would be a good idea to have all Mr. Pittock s property placed in trust?" "Never.' The interest of the publisher I the newspaper he had made an 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 If necessary to preserve It, every thing I have should go to protect it. There must at all times be kept on hand a good surplus. Opposition may come in. It has in the past and has concluded at 11:55 yesterday morning. cross-examination was opened imme diately by J. P. Cotton, a New York attorney of the firm of McAdoo, Cot ton Ac DranKlln. The direct examina- ion had been conducted entirely by Charles H. Carey ot the firm of Carey Kerr. George T. Gerllnger of the Willam ette Valley Lumber company, with offices in Portland and Dallas, who had been associated with Mr. Pittock and Mr. Leadbetter in lumber enter prises, testified yesterday morning concerning the business acumen of Mr. Pittock. 'Mr. Pittock formed his own conclu sions and I never knew of Mr. Price or Mr. Morden Intervening in his af fairs," said, the witness. "From my knowledge of Mr. pittock I do not be lieve anyone had much influence on his business actions, or could have had." BERRY CARNIVAL OPENS Elks to Be in Charge of Celebra tion at Roseburg Today.

I will carry my protest to the full naval affairs committee If necessary. Chairman Hale said he would other wise designate the columns marked "fit to fight" and "unfit to fight 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. IMttman Makes Protest. 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 publican. Delaware. The tabulation 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.
