KEELEY LIBEL SUIT
IS HEAR ITS CLOSE
Jury in Journal Action to Be
ARGUMENT IS BROKEN
Plaintiff Is Interrupted Several
Times by Court for Going Out
side Bccord in Case.
Before a crowded courtroom, Lee
Roy E. Keeley. plaintiff in a $163,000
libel suit against the Journal Publish
ing company, and Bert Haney and
George Joseph, attorneys for the de
tense, reviewed evidence In the case
yesterday and exchanged compliments
of more or less personal nature
throughout the day. Arguments were
completed shortly after 5 o'clock and
the jury win be instructed by Circuit
Judge Tucker this morning.
Keeley was interrupted several
rimes in his argument by the court on
the protest of defense counsel that he
was going outside the record in the
ease and "testifying" before the jury.
On one occasion he was accused by
both Haney and Joseph "of pervert
ing the evidence by statements which
are absolutely false and which he
Knows to be untrue."
Effect Is Theatrical.
Considerable theatrical effect was
attained at the close of Keeley's argu
ment when his voice broke and tears
came to his eyes as he told the jury
that it was not for himself that he
desired vindication so much as to
clear himself in the eyes of his "poor,
old white-haired father" and his sis
ters and brothers. His suffering be
cause of the things the Journal had
said about him in news columns and
editorially had chiefly been due to the
Distressing effect on these relatives,
"But thank God that I had a moth
r," he said, "a mother who does not
reed the verdict of a jury to show
her that I em not a crook, as these
leastly articles say. She knows that
I have followed the rule she laid down
to me when a child, and, no matte
what happens, that I have done what
I could in my life for others.'"
Keeley Is Declared Fakir.
Keeley centered his plea 'on the
eesire for "a substantial verdict of
vindication." He said that $1000 was
but "chicken feed" to the rich cor
poration he was suing and that he
wanted a verdict around $30,000, $20,
000 or at least $10,000. His complaint
That there was as much difference
Between Keeley and a reputable at
torney as between "the songs of the
ransomed and the wails of the
damned" was the assertion of Haney,
who opened the argument for the de
fense. He declared that Keeley was
a "fakir," who had shown his un
fitness to practice law by his alleged
disregard of morality, truth and fair
dealing throughout the trial.
As to Keeley's reputation, "you
cannot destroy that which already
is spoiled, you cannot injure a man's
good reputation if he has none," said
Haney. Most of the attorney's argu
ment waa devoted to an analysis of
the evidence in the case and the
pointing out of alleged inconsisten
cies and contradictions in the case of
Compensation Law Discussed.
"This slimy rascal from the south"
was a characterization of Keeley by
Joseph in the closing of the argu
ment for the defense. The attorney
discussed 'the workmen's compensa
tion law, passed, he said, to stamp
out "the damnable old practices of
the ambulance-chasing lawyer and
the casualty companies taking mil
lions of dollars from Oregon."
The lawyer insisted that Keeley's
attempted amendment of the work
men's compensation law. which would
make possible secret rejection of its
terms bv workmen and make it not
the exclusive remedy for compensat
ing injured workers, would have cut
the heart out of the law.
"Keeley says he is Interested in
principles." said Joseph. "His inter
est is financial. Were he successful
In cutting the heart from the work
men's compensation law, these halls
would be filled again with the in
jured, the maimed and the repre
sentatives of the dead, the prey of
ambulance-chasing lawyers. A friend
of the law, indeed!"
Keeley Seeka $1200 Job.
The attorney asserted that at a
time Keeley believed he had been in
jured to the extent of $450,000 by
various newspaper articles, he was
seeking a $1200-a-year civil service
"He said we would want to throw
mud." commented the speaker. "Well.
. who mixed up the dose of mud?
Keeley himself. Who . signed false
statements as to Keeley's conduct?
Who offered to share his wife with
his mistress? Who tried to rob the
widow Dibbert? His chickens are
coming home to roost."
"A greased, slick individual,"- "a
trickster" and "a scoundrelly lawyer"
were terms applied to Keeley in the
course of Joseph's remarks. . He con
cluded: "I feel, gentlemen, that your
verdict will be a ratification of what
the Journal has done to prevent a
dirty outrage and that you will not
give one cent to this rogue."

or Made Up in Sew Plant
BOISE, Idaho, May 3. (Special.)
Twenty-five cars of Idaho wool will
be shipped to Portland early this
month for storage until the market
condition improves, when ft will be
shipped to Boston, via the Panama
canal, or held in Portland for a wool
manufacturing plant now under con
The foregoing statement was given
out to'day at the Idaho Wool Grow
ers' association's headquarters, and
indicated that the woolmen were pre-
pared to handle their clip rather than
sell at a loss. Storage charges on
wool in Portland are 9 cents a sack
a month, while in Boston a charge of
cents is made. A low rate of in
surance also is obtainable, as against
a much higher rate in the east.
Woolmen stated they were in a po
sition to handle their clips while
awaiting better conditions. The talk
of a large woolen manufacturing
plant somewhere in the northwest
probably has had something to do
with the wool growers' shipping to
Portland, although shipping from
that city east will be cheaper than
shipping to Boston by rail.

When Chester Dixon, merchant of
Elk City, saw a fish reel and fine
hanging from the mouth of his milk
cow he wondered if his favorite bo
vine had contracted the fishing fever
which invades the village every April,
or if in a spirit of mischievousnees
she had sought, by swallowing his
tackle, to circumvent his Waltonian
Inadvertently, the outfit had. been
left on the lawn, where the cow was
used as a lawn mower, and the ani

had licked up with the grass until
the fishing reel refused to give up
any more line and began traveling
nearer the cow's nose at each suc
Mr. Dixon wound on the reel a
while and then something stuck. Not
one of the family remembered what
had been left on the end of the line,
whether hooks, spinner-spoons or lead
sinkers, but something held fast way
down in the cow and refused to come
forth. In a moment of desperation
Mr. Dixon jerked, whereupon the fish
"Moo!" eaid the cow, and proceeded
to eat more grass.

II. W. Child Compliments Governor
and State Commission and Will
Tell Au'toists to Come.
After traveling from San Diego
over roads that enabled him to aver
age 30 miles an hour in one of the
powerful yellow cars of the Yellow
stone national park, H. W, Child,
president of the companies operating
in that famous resort, reached Port
land yesterday afternoon. The first

Mr. Child was "checking over" the
road conditions between the Yellow

much praise for the wonderful, prog
ress which has been made since his
last trip by the Oregon highway com
mission, but was emphatic in his
criticism of conditions in Washington.

He was especially complimentary

declared that this state is entitled to
great credit for what has been done
on its roads within the last two years.
I will say that the Oregon roads
equal those of California and I com
pliment your state highway commis
sion, and Governor Olcott especially,
in what has been accomplished," said
Mr. Child, "but I am disgusted with
conditions in the state of Washing

Bis; Tourist Season Expected.
Mr. Child led the way over roads
that many thousands of tourists will
travel this season. He checked up
carefully the highways between San
Diego and Portland, and logged them
systematically around the . chain of
national parks along the coast. Be
cause of the predominance of the
automobile, he gave it as his opinion
yesterday afternoon that there will
be a splendid season of tourist travel.
My idea and the general view of
all who have gien the subject care

there should be strong co-operation
between all communities regarding
tourist travel. I am a firm believer
in the park-to-park road plan, which
seeks to link up by a highway 5000
miles in length all our national parks.
More and more people with the means

Forty-nine cases of Scotch whisky

alleged bootleggers were coming
through Kalama, and stationed two
deputies in an automobile on one of

in the Cowlitz county jail. The pris
oners said they had an attorney in
Seattle who would bail them out.
