Prisoner Faces New Charge.
Two new charges were filed yester
day against O. B. Fields, alias I A.
Wilson, arrested Thursday at 724
Fifty-ninth street North when a
still, mash and moonshine liquor
were found on his premises by
deputy sheriffs. Investigation by
the gas company Indicated that
Fields may have been .cheating the
company by using gaa in his opera
tions which he i said to have ob
tained through an illegal connection
just ahead of the meter. Charges of
theft of gas and the making of an
illegal gas connection were filed.
The charge preferred by the county
authorities is that of illegal posses
sion of liquor. Fields is still in
county jail and bail was fixed yes
terday at $1000.
Sewer Extension Proposed. A
report on the proposed north branch
of the Rhine street sewer has been
filed with the city council by City
Engineer Laurgaard. This proposed
sewer would give drainage and
sewage facilities to a large area on
the southern and eastern slopes of
Mount Tabor, for it would extend
from Fifty-second street Southeast
and Twenty-seventh avenue South
east to East Eightieth and Madison
streets. The sewer would be more
than 10,000 feet in length and is
estimated to cost $180,000, inclusive
of the cost of right of way. A large
number of important improvement
projects are being delayed awaiting
the construction of this sewer.
Wolverton Estate $55,000. An
estate valued at $55,00, consisting of
property in Multnomah and Clack
amas counties, was left by William
D. Wolverton, who, died at the age
of 81 in Franklin, N. J., July 20,
1922. Petition for probate of the
will was filed In circuit court yes
terday by Florence N. Wolverton of
Portland and Mary L. W. Green of
Pennsylvania, daughters. They ask
for appointment as executrices. The
estate is left to them, except for
small bequests to more distant rel
atives. The estate includes a farm
of 100S acres In Clackamas county,
20 acres in this county and $6000 in
Window Washer Falls. A fall to
tlie pavement from a third-floor
window in the Railway Exchange
bilUng, at Third and Stark streets,
yesterday resulted in two fractured
ankles for T. G. Collins, a window
washer., Only through the fact that
lie managed to land feet first and
had presence of mind enough to
relax saved him from perhaps fatal
injuries. He was rushed fully con
scious to the Good Samaritan hos
pital and last night, in addition to
liis hurts, was suffering from shock,
-lie is married and lives at 86 Fre
mont street. No reason for the fall
was given. His safety belt was in
place at the time.
The Cedars Fund Provided. The
state budget board has put $55,000
into the budget to provide for the
treatment of girls at The Cedars
who are picked up at points outside
the city of Portland. This sum will
take care of the work for two years.
City Commissioner Mann appeared
before the budget committee at its
sessions in Salem during the early
part of the week. The recommenda
tions of the committee will go to
the legislature, where the ways and
means committee of both houses
will consider them and make recom

OLD MAN'S HOME SAVED
Mortgage Foreclosure Case Bis
missed by Judge. -
Suit in circuit court in which
Martin Gerspacher, 86, faced the
possible loss of his little suburban
home property, was decided in his
favor yesterday by Judge Tucker.
The question at issue was the va
lidity of Gerspacher's signature on
a mortgage note for $400. Fore
closure on the mortgage was sought
by Austin Maloney, the holder.
Gerspacher, who is of German
birth, but had served three years in
the civil war and for several years
thereafter in Alaskan duty, denied
that he had signed the note or ever
reecived money on it. As one de
fense, it was asserted that the sig
nature was not that of the aged
veteran, as he was said to be un
able to write anything but the Ger
man script. Testimony that weighed
most in the court, however, was
that which showed that the old man
had not received any money what
ever. The judge dismissed the
cross-complaint under which Ma
loney sought to foreclose and force
the octogenarian out of his little

One Family In Conflict Comprise
Two Fighting Divisions.
SALEM, Or., Dec. 22. (Specials
New light is thrown upon the
dark enigma of "who won the
war?" in a Washington bulletin re
ceived by George A. White, adju
tant - general of the state. Not
Pershing, not Lejeune, not Liggett
was the great American fighting
man, but rather a composite fellow
by the name of Smith. There were
two whole fighting divisions of
Smiths, the bulletin shows. It has
taken the war department a long
time, with the aid of many clerks,
to count all the members of the
Smith family who went to the front
against the kaiser, and with the
click of the "total" bar on the war
department adding machine the re
sult was 55,180.
Mobilized into one force, there
were enough Smiths for more than
a dozen war-strength infantry regi
ments, enough for two combat di
visions, nearly enough for an army
corps. If the Johnsons and Smiths
had been merged, there would have
been enough of them to stop the
Boche on the Marne, for the John
son family helped the Smiths by
sending 41,58'0 into the fray. The
Brown family furnished a whole

Charles S. Gilpin, who is seen this
week in this big role at the Heilig (
"I am past 50 years old and I had
pursued a stage career for some 30
years in practical obscurity. I had
been a minstrel man and had ap
peared in vaudeville acts and in
musical comedies. A few seasons
ago I joined a negro stock company
in Chicago and was very happy in
my work. We put on good produc
tions and enjoyed a fine business.
Then came my chance as the slave
in that splendid play 'Abraham Lin
coln,' and when the production of
'The Emperor Jones' was in prepa
ration 1 was selected for the part.
"I have no false ideas about my
self. No one can 'kid' me and I do
not 'kid' myself. I am working in
this play exactly in the same way
that I might work at anything else.
It pays me the most money. I be
gan life as do most of my race, with
nothing. I learned the trade of a
printer. When I found that my
ability to dance and sing and tell
jokes paid me better I left the print
shop and followed the trail of the
theaters. I have a wife and children
and a grandchild and I am growing
older every day. I want to feather
my nest before old age comes on.
"A role like this one, purely an
accident as I say, might not happen
again in a lifetime. The philosophy
in the play is more or less mine also.
Emperor Jones says he wants to
make hay while the sun shines, and
that it's the almighty dollar that
talks. He is right"
About the report from New York's
Rialto that he is to be presented in
a Shakespearean revival in the role
of Othello, Charles Gilpin said: "I

Intruder Flees From Store With

VANCOUVER, Wash.. Dec. 22,
(Special.) A watch dog chained in
the J. C. Kane store at La Center
saved the proprietor of the store
heavy loss last night when the es
tabllshment was entered by a burg
lar. The only loot was two pairs
of rubbers and four pairs of shoes,
which had been laid near the rear
door, where the marauders entered.
The dog has a habit of growling
fiercely if any one rattles the doors
of the store at night and the
burglar is believed to have fled
when he heard the dog. Entrance
was gained by boring a hole through
the door so that, an arm could be
inserted and the bolts drawn.

TDE SPLENDID programme of
dance music broadcast last
tower by George Olsen and his
orcluestra of the Portland hotel
achieved even new records in pop
ularity for the Friday night con
certs. More requests for special
numbers were received during the
concert than ever were before and
scarcely a selection was played that
some listener did not telephone,
asking that it be repeated.
The feature of the programme, a
selection called "Crinoline Days,"
played . by the saxophone quartet.
Rice, Henkel, Nuel and Peck,
aroused a veritable storm of ap
plause. This quartet is a new ad
dition to the Olsen players and has
been made possible by George Ol
sen's policy of using only players
who can play two or more instru
ments. There are now six saxo
phone players in the orchestra, and
Mr. Olsen is preparing numbers in
which all six of them will be used.
Bernarda Harry Henderson, so
prano, used her splendid voice to
perfect advantage in the three solos
she sang before the orchestra con
cert. Mrs. Henderson was a new
singer to radio and she won instan
taneous success. Her three songs
went out clearly and were heard
distinctly by thousands of listeners
who applauded her vigorously. Mrs.
Henderson was assisted at the
piano by Mrs. Serena Hammond,
an able accompanist, and sang
"April Moon" (Batten), "Pale Moon"
(Logan) and "The Sweetest Story
Ever Told" (Stults).
George Olsen and his orchestra
were never in better form than last
night. Augmented by the two new
nlavers. Billy Priest, baniolst. and
Earl Peck, trombonist, the musio
was well-nigh perfect. Many own
ers of receiving sets entertained
friends with dancing by radio music,
and these parties expressed extreme
enthusiasm over the concert. The
numbers played were "Crinoline
Days," "I'll Build a Stairway to
Paradise," "Early In the Morning
Blues," a foxtrot arrangement of
Valse Triste, "Jimmy," "Toot,
Toot, Tootsie," "Tricks," "Japanese
Moon" and Hot Lips."
Mrs. H. K. Robbtns of Kalispell,
Mont., is one of the many feminine
fans who derive a great deal of
pleasure from the entertainment
furnished by KGW. The Sunday
night programmes are - especially
lauded by her.
