TITE JIORMXG OKEGONTAX. THURSDAY. DECEMBER 21, 1923 LONG PRISON TEffl ASSURED LIGHTI Drug Trafficker Faces Max , , imum of Eight Years. JOE WILSON CONVICTED Two Telling Blows Dealt Narcot " lcs Evil by Federal Court; Others Also Involved. 2G ' '' ' ' V ' ""S "K 2 federal officials struck two tell ing blows at the narcotics evil yes terday when Dave Lightner, whole sale trafficker in drugs, was con- ?victed on two additional conspiracy charges, and Joe Wilson, crippled dwarf, was Dlaced in the county f jail on a complaint charging viola tion of the Harrison act. , Lightner now faces a maximum sentence of eight years in the peni- tentiary and a f 25,000 fine. He will be sentenced Saturday morning. Two of his companions and co-defendants, Ivan E. Claeys, ex-policeman, and D. M. Williamson, were freed of implication In the drug plot. Claeys got a 15 months' prison sentence for violating the liquor law, while Williamson was let off with the comparatively light pun ishment of a $200 fine and four months in the county jail. Wilson, a local hotel keeper, was Jailed after three unfortunate wom en had testified that the hotel man had kept them in virtual bondage and forced them to live a life of shame through their craving for drugs. According to Assistant United States Attorney Bynon. the case is one of the most aggravated ever brought to the attention of local government officials. Wilson is held in jail in lieu of J3000 bail. . Long- Chase Is Ended. The Lightner case now is practi cally finished all but the passing of sentence. For over a year this notorious figure in Portland's un derworld has enjoyed the spotlight of publicity. He led the government a merry race on two continents, was tracked to - China and back again, and, though he sought every avenue of escape, the strong arm of fed eral justice effectiually blocked his chances for escape. The fateful words, "Guilty as charged in the Indictment," sealed his doom yes- terday. Lightner was convicted two weeks ago on charges of violating the Harrison act and the opium act. He went on trial Monday, on two in dictments charging conspiracy to violate the Harrison act and the na tional prohibition act. With a group of companions, including Claeys and Williamson, he boarded a Japanese steamer last March and in the course of a fake raid escaped with several thousand dollars' worth of drugs and liquor. Claeys and Will iamson pleaded guilty to the con spiracy charge as regards the pro hibition law, but denied any com plicity in the plot to gain possession of the narcotics. The jury, which reached a verdict about midnight, presented its find ings at 10 o'clock in Judge Diet rich's court yesterday morning. Williamson, who had not boarded the steamer, was acquitted on the narcotics charge. The 12 failed to agree as to Claeys' guilt and the case was dimsissed. But in the case of Lightner there was evidently no doubt "guilty as charged," .read the findings on the various counts. Court Scores Offender. Claeys and Williamson stepped to the bar to raceive punishment for their part In the fake raid on the steamer. Claeys was severely scored by the court. iou are not only guilty of vio lating the liquor laws," said Judge Dietrich, "but you committed rob bery on board a Japanese steamer. Your treatment of the members of the crew was inexcusable. The sen tence of the court is that you be imprisoned in McNeil's island peni tentiary for 15 months and pay a fine of $500." A reques for a Btay of execution until after the holidays failed to move the jurist. Claeys, who' at the time of the fake raid was a trusted member of the police force, will start for prison with the next batch of convicts. Williamson fared better than the former bluecoat. He had remained In the launch which the boarding party used and had taken no part in the raid. After the jail sentence of four months had been imposed the court allowed him his liberty until after the holiday season. Lightner Wants Retrial. Lightner will be given until Sat urday morning to show reasons why he should not be sent to prison. His' motion for a new trial will be heard on that day. Sentence will also b,e passed Saturday morning. Sentence on the two previous con victions will be passed as soon as Federal Judge Bean, who heard the cases, returns from Boise, Idaho, where he is holding court, while Judge Dietrich is sitting on the local federal bench. E. A. Brown, another member of the gang, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in vio lation of the liquor laws, also will bo sentenced Saturday morning. With the Lightner gang safely disposed of, the United States at torney's office has turned -its atten tion to WMson, whose acts, they eay, rival .hose of Lightner for downright depravity. Wilson was arrested Tuesday by Officers Bur- j dick and Schaffer of the police nar cotics squad in his lodging house at Third and Jefferson streets. The story unfolded to Attorney Byron rivals the Eldest dreams, of the creators ot f.ction and movie vil lains. Wilson, It is claimed, has kept un fortunate women in his house and has robbed them of their earnings in the sale of dope. One unfortunate told attaches of the United States marshal's office that Wilson took $10 a day from ber for her daily supply of drugs. Three of his al leged victims, Marie Davis, Betty Cameron and Mamie Hyman, are held as material witnesses for the - government. Wilson also faces a charge in the police court of con ducting a disorderly house.. No Sympathy Possible.
