CHICAGO. July 27. Attorneys for
"Big Tim" Murphy, "Frenchy
Mader, "Con", Shea and two other
alleged labor terrorists sprung a
surprise today when they asked the
dismissal of one of the Jurymen on
the grounds that he lived across the
street froTn a house that had been
bombed by the terrorists. The dis
missal of this Juror would amount
to a mistrial. The Jury was chosen
after more than 1300 men had been
examined. Judge Taylor, who took
the matter under advisement until
tomorrow. Indicated he would dis
miss the motion.
The Juror is J. M. Simpson and
resides across the street from Henry
O'Callaghan, a plumbing contractor.
O'Callaghan's home was bombed
April 10 last because he was work

front porch was demolished and a
piece of wood was driven into his

Civil Service Bureau's Decision
Leaves J. V. Winters Facing
Same Old Dilemma.
It was the decision of the city
civil service board yesterday that
J. W. "Winters, the "praying park
helper" who quit his job when told
by his superiors to forego his pub
lic supplications to the almighty,
has neither resigned nor been dis
charged. The case of Winters attracted
public attention early last spring.
He was wont to strike a posture
during the noon luncheon hour and
voice his prayers aloud. Complaints
about the practice led the park
bureau heads to tell Winters he
must pray in silence. Rather than
change his custom the employe gave
up his work and appeal on his be

Eddy stated, but they presented

In ruling simply that Winters is
entitled to his position as a city
employe the board members evi

silently or else change the hour of

ASTORIA, Or., July 27. (Special.)
At 2:30 o'clock this afternoon the
time expired in which the federal
court order permitted purse seiners
to fish within the three-mile limit
off the Washington coast. Thirty
five of the craft were fishing out

Deputy Fish Warden Larson, they
averaged from one to two tons to
the boat, principally of silversides,
and on Tuesday one boat is said to
have taken six tons.
While some of the purse-seine
craft are preparing to give up ths
fight and return to Puget sound.
the officers believe that others will
continue fishing at sea, but the pa
trol boat Phoenix is to be on duty
night and day to see that none en

Reports have been made recently
to the better business bureau of the
Portland Ad club regarding solicit

claiming, as they go from house to
house, that they have the indorse

and the Ad club.
No such indorsements have been
given, according to the better busi

The bureau officers assert that

This demonstration is in disrepute,
it is said, and can be applied suc

POLICEMAN HIT BY AUTO
Member" of Speed Squad Suffers
Cecil Gladwyn, motorcycle patrol
man on the police speed squad, sus
tained a leg fracture and internal
injuries yesterday when he was
struck by an automobile operated
by Alfred Moline, a clerk, aged IS.
The collision occurred at Twenty
fourth and Overton streets.
Moline was arrested later by traf
fic police and held in $500 bail on a
charge of reckleBs driving. It is
charged that he failed to give right-of-way
to a police vehicle.
Gladwyn was first taken to the
police emergency hospital, but was
removed to St. Vincent's hospital
when it was found that his injuries
were serious. -

"Just a minute, Mr. Wagner, I'm
afraid we can't do it."
And so it went all day yesterday
for Lou Wagner, Portland lawyer,
who took it on the chin more times
a minute than an ordinary man is
expected to take it in a lifetime.
It all happened because some per
son by the name of Louis Wagner
had filed a voluntary petition in
bankruptcy in the federal court
Wednesday, listing plenty of debts
but no assets.
Throughout the day Attorney
Wagner was busy answering ques
tions from the curious who wanted
to know why he was taking the
bankruptcy course. , Sympathetic
friends routed him out of bed early
in the morning to condole with him
and the expressions of sympathy
were still going strong last night.
In desperation he arranged his
business affairs hurriedly for a va
cation trip of two weeks in British
Columbia. He leaves by automobile
with his wife this morning.
"The similarity of names was em
barrassing, to say the least," he
complained. "My debtors, thinking
it was I who had gone into bank
ruptcy, laughed as ' they passed me
on the street, while one creditor,
the count, was in a fighting mood."
Lou Wagner, attorney, concluded
by saying he wanted the brighteyed
world to know that the Louis Wag
ner who decided to become a bank
rupt is neither himself nor his son.
