Alibi Is Offered by
PICKETING IS DENIED
Burial of Fellow-Striker Said to
Have Been Under Discussion
Time, a dead man and "Mysteri
ous" Billy Smith's soft drink em
porium in lower Albina, were tha
elements- about which was centered
yesterday's court fight in the cases
of 14 railroad shop workers accused
of violating; the federal court anti
Time was the most important ele
ment. The O.-W. R. & S. company,
in citing the 14 for contempt of
court, charged that they were at the
chop entrance between 4:45 and 5
o'clock on the night of August 1 and
that non-union men leaving the
jilant at this hour were subjected to
a storm of abuse and vilification as
they passed through the picket lines.
The defendants, having their inning
in court, sought to refute the
, charges by evidence that they were
elsewhere. And, in the accounting
of their actions, minutes and sec
onds played an important part. The
defense, in building up alibis, ad
mitted that some of the defendants
were in the general vicinity of the
shops, but were not in the picket
line at the time charged.
Shop Is Block Dlatant.
The dead man, a Croatian, was the
cause which drew eeveral of his
countrymen, all strikers, to the shop
vicinity to discuss a burial plan.
"Mysterious" Billy Smith's estab
lishment figured as a sort of ren
dezvous for the strikers. The soft
drink parlor is but a block from the
yard entrance and two of the ac
cused pickets declared that they
were in the place at the time the
demonstration was being staged at
the plant entrance.
The strike hearing was resumed
at 2 o'clock yesterday by Judge
Wolverton, the court's time during
the morning session being taken up
' with other civil cases.
Emil Gesca, a young painter, one
of the accused 14, took the stand
in his own defense and gave the
lie to the evidence of railroad wit
nesses that he had been on the
picket line at the time charged.
Attorneys Murphy and Green, rep
resenting the company and the
strikers, respectively, also passed
the lie to each other in one of their
numerous tilts over Gesca's evi
dence. Gesca claimed that he had
been at work at the Rose City
schoolhouse on August 1, that he
arrived at his home at 5 o'clock and
that he was not on the picket line
on that day.
Story Is Substantiated.
"Absolutely false" was his char
acterization of his identification by
a witness for the railroad company.
Henry Glance, another striker who
is working with Gesca at the
schoolhouse and with whom the
accused man rode home on the night j
of the demonstration; L. C. William
son, a painting contractor, and E.
Johnson, a foreman at the school
house, substantiated Gesca's alibi.
Martin Chutuk, another of the de
fendants, introduced the dead man
into the case. Chutuk, going to the
company, office on August 1, had
.bene asked by railroad officials to
look after the body of a country
man, a lailroad employe who had
just died at La Grande. ChutuE'
hunted -ip other strikers, visited an
undertaker and then attended an
'nformal meeting at "Mysterious"
Billy Smith's establishment, during
which the burial was discussed. It
was during this discussion, Chutuk
said, that the trouble at the shop
Another Alibi Similar.
C. I,. Cherry, an undertaker, Rob
ert Boiich and Frank Matysavich,
two other strikers', were called to
substantiate Chutuk's alibi. Stojan
Vestica. also a defendant and a mem
ber of the conference, introduced an
al-bi similar to that entered by Chu
tuk. Her.ry Melcher, another of the 14,
was ca;!ed on his own behalf. Mel
cher, a middle-aged man, has been
a resident of Portland for 17 years
and is the father of a family of
grown children. He was at his
heme at the time of the disturb
ance, he said, and introduced Kred
Scharer. a fellow striker, to support
The hearing of the casa will be
resumed at 10 o'clock thi morning.
Attendance in the courtroom has
fallen off to a remarkable degree
and no doorkeeper is now required.
Due to the total absence of the
strikebreaker witnesses, no displays
of sentiment were made yesterday,
the on;y demonstrations being the
frequent arguments between the op
seining process in which the two
Lotharios are landed by the girls.
The satire is smart and timely and
the acting excellent.
Ward & King are a clever pair
of men whose dancing is unusually
worth, while and whose joke ex
change bears all the imprints of
careful supervision. They are youth
ful and smart-appearing and their
nonsense has the appeal of orig
inality. They call their act "My
Girl," because she forms the sub
ject of most of their argument.
The Lorner Girls are interesting.
One is Marguerite, and her sister is
Rhea, and both are young and at
tractive. They have a splendid ac
companist at the piano in the person
of Lew Otter, and his melody forms
a delightful background for the
artistic dances of the girls. A pleas
ant feature of their offering is their
singing a harmonious event.
Gordon Wilde and company open
the bill in a high-class and most
diverting novelty in shadow craft.
Wilde manipulates his hands and
makes marvelous subjects on' the
screen. -The audience enjoyed this

TWO tiny tads from the group of
dancers sponsored by Mr. and
Mrs. Hamilton Douglas create a
furore with their gay little manners
an-d smiles. They are Margaret
Grinstein, a picturesque dark little
ma"id. and Billy Lowenthal, a fas
cinating bionde baby girl, whose
antics it is a perfect joy to watch.
Billy is garbed as a Bowery tough,
but a very handsome, dashing tough
in satin breeches and a silken shirt,
while Margaret is a cunning edition
of Maude Fulton in satin rags and
Boweresque plumage. They put on
a travesty of dance that is very
funny to grown-ups. and when they
prance off the audience went wild
with applause. Both Billy and Mar
garet are talented dancers, but they
have also a definite understanding
of technique in dance and their
naturalness is apparent. The other
children are well trained and re
flect the work of a clever teacher,
but blonde Billy and little Mar-
garet walked away with the show.

First Direct Testimony Concern
ing Conduct of Oleott
Hall Count Heard.
Members of the election board
who counted the ballots in precinct
201, in which Governor Olcott was
"counted out" of 34 votes, accord
ing to the findings of the Hall re
count proceedings, were before the
Multnomah county grand jury yes
terday. The officials appeared at their
own request. This was the first
direct testimony to be heard by the
grand jury concerning the conduct
of affairs in, the precinct where
apparent fraud has bobbed up. The
probe last week was confined to
examination of officials' records of
the election boards, both day and
night, and to a recheck of all the
ballots cast in precinct 201.
At adjournment last night, Will
iam H. Emrick, an electrical engi
neer living at 437 - East Forty
seventh street North, and chairman
of the counting board, was still
being quizzed by the grand jury.
He was in the grand jury room
longer than any of the other wit
nesses. Other, members of the
counting board were H. R. Holmai,
Virgil A. Crum, Anna A. Mallory
and C. S. West.
Emrick has admitted since the
discrepancies in his precinct were
discovered that he had counted
many of the ballots, that is, read
off the results to the Jtally clerks.
It is possible that the grand jury
investigation may come to a close
Columbia County Man Charged
With Dogging Deer and Aim
ing Rifle at Game Warded
Two deputv sheriffs, who excused
themselves from the provisions of
certain laws, fell into the hands of
brother officers during the week end
and now face prosecution in state
One is W. C. Gibbs, deputy sheriff
of Grant county, whose home was
searched by a combined posse of
federal agents and district attorneys
from two counties. Five gallons of
moonshine and over a half ton of
corn meal were found. Glbbs is
facing a charge of violating the
state prohibition law.
Andrew Parker, deputy sheriff of
Columbia county, was arrested Sun
day by Deputy Game Warden Brown,
charged with dogging deer. Parker
is accused of attempting to ward off
arrest by leveling a long-barreieu
rifle at the game warden. Another
criminal charge, in addition to the
one of violating" the game laws,
may be added. State Game Warden
Burghduff announced yesterday.
Gibbs' downfall came as a result
of a series of rumors that have
been floating into the prohibition
office regarding his lack of activity
as regards the prohibition law. Two
agents, in company with District
Attorney Leavens of Baker and Dis
trict Attorney Appling of Canyon
City, raided Gibbs' home at the lat
ter place last Friday and located the
five-gallon barrel of moonshine and
1200 pounds of ground corn meal.
Because witnesses would have to be
transported to Portland at great cost
to the government, the case was
turned over to the state officials
by the government agents. Gibbs
has been charged with a violation
of the state prohibition law.
In addition to the criminal charges
the two accused officers will also
lose their commissions and offices,
it was announced yesterday.
Heavy fines were imposed on a
bevy of hunters who faced Justice
of the Peace Phillips at St. Helens
yesterday on charges of violating
state game laws in Columbia county
Sunday. Deer season, which opened
Sunday, drew hundreds of hunters
to that district.
A. B. Kingsley was fined $150 and
costs on a charge of having a fawn
in his possession. Earl Newman wag
fined $100 and, E. Wittner $50 for
having a doe in their possession. C.
L. Schultz was assessed $50 for hav
ing an untagged deer in his pos
session and will face another charge
tomorrow, that of having a fawn in
his possession. In the cases of Joe
Welsh and William Patterson, ac
cused of having a fawn in their
possession, the charge against Welsh
was dismissed and that against
Patterson continued indefinitely.

The Land of Romance
Let your back-east Journey carry you right through
to the Atlantic Coast of Canada to the land of
Longfellow's Evangeline, with its beauty and tran'
quillity that rest the tired nerves.
Visit the land where occurred the eighteenth century
struggles for the possession of the New World
where the destiny of the American continent was
determined more than two hundred years ago.
Many points of interest -y romamic, historic and com
mercial are found in trie Maritime Provinces. Let
them contribute to the "vacation you will never forget".
