THE SUNDAY OKEGOyiAN, OBTLASD, SEPTEMBEK 28, 190Z.
YOUTHS 00 TO JAIL
Charge of Horse-Stealing
ALL AVER THEIR INNOCENCE
Accused of Rounding Up Animals
Near Xorttt Yakima, Shipping
Them, to Portland nnd Sell
Charles Hart, Oelrlch Hanan and Fred
Bickel, each about 13 years old, were
locked up in the County Jail yesterday
morning on a charge of horse-stealing at
North Yakima two weeks ago. They are
accused of having stolen 27 head of horses
from the range, valued at about $40 each.
The animals were loaded on cars and
brought to Portland, and were then driv
en by the trio over the canyon road and
to Sherwood, Washington County, where
the young men were arrested by Consta
ble George Hagey and E. "W. Johnson.
On Thursday last, Henry Ohlstadt, who
alleges that 14 horses and five colts were
stolen from his ranch, arrived in Port
land and reported " his loss to Sheriff
Storey. That official advised him to send
telegrams to points adjacent to this city
nnd await answers. Yesterday the news
of the recovers- of the horses and arrest
of the young fellows was received. Ohl
otadt states that one of the horses was
killed, and that four of them were eold at
The prisoners deny having stolen the
horses. They say they purchased them,
and that when they reach North Yakima
they can prove it. Hart and Bickel have
also stated that they were employed by
Hansen to travel with him and sell the
stock. Yesterday afternoon It was re
ported that Attorney Charles A. Pctraln
would file a habeas corpus petition In the
Interest of Hart, Bickel and Hansen, but
he "had not done so when the courts ad
journed yesterday at 5 o'clock.
HOW TO BUILD GOOD ROADS
Convention Will Be Held, nt Which
Worlc Will Be Shown.
The good roads convention will be held
In Portland. October 14-15. This date has
been set by James TV.. Abbott, commis
sioner of the good roads train which Is
now at Grand Forks, N. D. Owing to the
unwillingness of the railroads to bring the
train any further "West, the train will re
turn to St. Paul.
The object of the convention will be to
give demonstration in road construction.
The demonstrators are in the service of
the Government. The Chamber of Com
merce of this city has requested the
County Commissioners to provide a half
mile stretch of road for the demonstra
tion, and to furnish the required workmen.
Beall & Co., of this city, have offered to
furnish the machinery for the road con
struction. In a letter to the Chamber of
Commerce the company says:
"If it is not possible to Induce the good
roads train to come here during the good
roads convention to be held here In Oc
tober, we would be pleased to furnish a
rock-crusher, grader, roller and other road
making machinery to be used during the
convention, free of charge, provided we
can know 30 days In advance, so we can
have the goods here."
MORE HOTELS NEEDED.
Portland Mnt Prepare to House
Great Crowds at Fair.
The Lewis and Clark Fair will require
more hotels than Portland has now. The
hotels are already doing a business which
is cramped whenever an unusually large
number of visitors come to the city, for
example to attend public conventions.
How to get adequate hotel accommoda
tions Is likely to be one of the problems
of the Exposition, as It Is already thb
problem of the advocates of the G. A, R.
Encampment. The fact Is quite appar
ent that Portland Is .fast outgrowing its
A hotel man said yesterday that to
build and furnish a first-class hotel, such
as Is needed, would cost about $300,000.
"It should have about 250 rooms," said he.
"I know of no better Investment. It would
pay handsomely and with the right man
at the head of it would return 5 or 6 per
cent. No Investment yields surer re
turns than does that In a hotel, when the
business Is rightly located."
The speaker was a man of many years
experience In the business, and at his re
quest his name Is withheld.
The Portland Hotel has about 350 rooms,
the Perkins about 165 and the Imperial
STILL KEEPS SILENCE.
Governor-Elect Chnmberlnin Will

Governor-elect Chamberlain, wher ask3
yesterday for his opinion about the ap
propriation that will be asked from the
legislature, continued the policy -which
he has maintained heretofore, and de
clined to say anything for publication at
present Tie said that he was keeping
silent about such matters pertaining to

propriates will be expended under the ad
ministration of a state commission, which

commission will probably Include mem

rectors. Mr. Chamberlain Intimated yes
terday that he would favor this close re
lation between the commission and the
board of directors.
Three Versions of the Punching.
Peter Demerlc, John Nelson and Charles
McCarty told different stories yesterday
in the Municipal Court of the fight in
which they were- mixed up in a Second
street Ealoon. "I was In the saloon at
tending to my own business, when Nelson
came up and offered to fight me for the
drinks. I refused, but we got mixed up
on the floor, and McCarty showed what
he could do In the way of punching," ex
plained Demerlc Nelson testified: "That's
not it. I challenged Demerlc to punch
the punchlng-bag. and told him that the
man who got the highest number.of marks
would get the drinks, but instead of
punching the bag, Demerlc punched me."
"I was peacemaker, and all I know is
that I tried to pull the men apart, and got
the worst of It," said McCarty. Munici
pal Judge Hogue said that the testimony
differed so much that the case would be
continued for further evidence.
Mnltnoraah Institute a Model.
In a letter to County Superintendent
Robinson, Professor T. L. Heaton, of the
University of California, who was one of
the instructors In the recent county
teachers' institute, asks that he be sent a
number of copies of the programme of the
Multnomah Institute, saying that he con.
Eldered It a good model for the larger ln

attendance card arranged for the use of
the local Institute, which proved so val

the present law. Professor Heaton says
he has already begun to advocate Port
land as the meeting place of the Natlonil

asks whether the city has an assembly
hall with a seating capacity of 5000, and
smaller halls for sectional work. The

RECEPTION TO DR. HOUSE
XeTr Congregational Pastor Warmly
The event of the week in this city, at
least In church circles, was the reception
to Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Elwln L, House

of the First Congregational Church, from
8 to 11. The several rooms were most j
handsomely and profusely decorated with
ivy, ferns and flowers, and the effect was

larger than the book In present use, and
presents a more attractive appearance
than the familiar black and green volume.

The greatest success of the 1905 Fair will be the keynote of the

written in a way to command the greatest popular recognition.

representative newspapers throughout the country. In point of gen

Rice, Mr. and Mrs. John A. Bell, Judge
and Mrs. J. B. Cleland. Judge M. C.
George and Mrs. S. D. Smith. After an
hour of salutation and social converse,
the formal exercises of the evening began
with a special selection by the orchestra
and a brief invocation "by Rev. Robert
M. Jones. Mr. Charles H. 3aylord acted
as chairman. Then an address of wel
come on behalf of the Congregational
churches of Oregon was given by Rcv.
Cephas F. Clapp, superintendent of the
Congregational Home Missionary work
for the state. He was followed with a
baritone solo by Mr. Dom Zan. which
was so enthusiastically encored that he
responded with a second number. A wel
come was then extended to Dr. House
on behalf of the "ministers of the city by
Rev. Alexander Blackburn, of the First
Baptist Church. At this point a tenor
solo was rendered by Mr. Lauren S.
Pease, which received- a most hearty en
core, whereupon a second number was
given. Then a general word of greeting
was given by Rev. Dr. Thomas L. Eliot,
of the Unitarian Church. In the course
of his remarks he referred to his own
advent In Portland, 35 years ago, and to
the kindly reception given him by Rev.
George H. Atkinson, then pastor of this
church. Then a solo by Mrs. Rose Bloch
Bauer was announced, which she ren
dered In her best style and drew forth
an encore, which did not cease until she
responded. Charles L. Fay was then
called upon to give an address of welcome
on behalf of the church. In doing this, he
pledged the hearty co-operation ot the
church in every way necessary to build
up its influence for good.
Dr. House, being called upon, responded
In grateful words for the enthusiastic
and hearty greetings he had received, and
declared that he felt that It was an ear
nest of -what was In store for the church
and that by mutual co-operation great
good might be accomplished. Then the'
last number, the partaking of light re
freshments, closed the programme. The
attendance was very large, but the La
dles' Aid Society, under whose auspices
the reception was given, had made pro
vision for all. A number of the clergy
from other churches, as well as members,
were present, and all -were made fo feel
at home. Thus a most delightful evening
was spent, and it was one fraught with
much good to the moral well-being of the

only every part of tho city proper, but
also the suburbs east to Russellvllle,

north as far as St. Johns. Some of these
suburbs have Increased In population mar
velously since the canvass of last year.
Montavilla, or Mount Tabor Villa, as It
was formerly called, was largely built
during boom times, and when the depres
sion of nine years ago fell upon the com
munity, may of the houses were vacated
and stood empty and deserted until the
Spring of this year, wben stjores of them
were repaired and occupied at once. In
some districts within the city limits the
canvassers found families living in un
finished houses, or even tents. Often ele

roof was, In many case, a signal for the
removal into the new home.

O'Connor Now Has the Dog:.
The ownership of an English setter dog
puzzled Justice Reid yesterday. The
dog was latterly In the possession of Ar
thur Paulsen, and the latter was arrested
for larceny of the dog on the complaint
of John O'Connor, who insisted that he
was the real owner. The Judge and
Deputy District Attorney Manning agreed
that the evidence did not show that any
body's ownership in the dog had been
established, and that there was no proof
that Paulsen had committed larceny.
Paulsen waa discharged, and he said as
he walked off: "O'Connor, let us see
whom the dog will follow." "All right,"
agreed O'Connor. The dog followed tho
two young men to the sidewalk readily
enough, nd O'Connor suddenly fastened
a rope around the dog's neck and said:
"I have got the dog. Now, If you want
him you can start a replevin suit. Ta-ta."

By a slide on the O. R. & N. at
Dpdson's Siding, near Bonneville, Friday
night, several cars of a freight train were
half burled, but fortunately no ono was
hurt. Details of tho slide have not been
received, but from Information obtained
it appears that there was little damage
excepting that caused by the Interruption
of traffic. The passenger trains were dis
patched late, and the passengers were
transferred around the pile-up. A force

AMERICAN BANK WEALTH
PER CAPITA DEPOSIT OF ?108 FOR
PEOPLE OF UNITED STATES.
Interetlngr Statistic Compiled hy
the TrenHxxry Bnrcnn From the
Controller's Report for 1001.
The bank deposits of the people of the
United States aggregate fS.DOO.OOO.OOO, an
average of ?10S per capita. Ten years ago
they aggregated $4,232,000,000, or just half
the amount of today, and 20 years ago
they -were ?2,600,000,000, or a little more
than one-quarter of those of today.
These figures are presented In a table
Just prepared by the Treasury Bureau of
Statistics for publication In the forth
coming Issue of Its monthly summary of
commerce and finance. They are com
piled from the reports of the Controller
of the Currency, and Include the deposits
in National banks, savings banks, state
banks, loan and trust companies and prl- j
vate banks, and cover the official figures
of the year 1901. The figures for -the va
rious classes of banks stand as follows:
National banks ,$2.937.75.?.235
Savings banks , 2,597.034,550
State banks 1.610.502.24G
Loan and trust companies 1,271,051,174
Private banks '. US.621,003
The figures thus compiled by the Bu
reau of Statistics show te total deposits
in the various banking organizations of
the country, so far as they can be ob
tained, from 1S75 down to the present
time, though it is proper to add that the
1SS7, only such banks as voluntarily report j
to the Controller of the Currency; in oth- j
er words, only about one-fourth of the
total number of private banks in the
United States, while during the period
from 1S7S to 1SS2 the figures cover the de-
posits in practically all private banks.
Taking the figures at intervals from 1878
to 1901. tho total deposits in all banking
Institutions stand as follows:
Year Deposits.! Year Deposits.

18S7 3.255,772,134.1901 8,535.053,136
During recent years the growth has
been very rapid. From 1S78 to 1SS2 tho in
crease was $$77,503,783; from 1SS2 to 18S7.
$499,834,061; from 1SS7 to 1S32, $1,374,718,022;
from 1892 to 1897. $C6,357,374, and from 1897
to 1901. $3,338,205,606.
An analysis of rome deposit figures
of each class of banks is interesting, and
in cases may be carried back over a much
longer term of years. The published fig
ures cover tho deposits in certain classes
of banks at a much earlier date than that
covered by the reports upon loan and
trust companies and private banks.
The individual deposits in National
banks, for example, grew from $500,000,oq0
in 1SC3 to $518,000,000 in 1875; $1,111,000,000 In
18S5; $1,720,000,000 in 1S95. and $2,937,000,000
In 1901 to $3,111,000,000 in 1902.
For savings banks the figures extend
back, to the year 1S20. and show the total
deposits in that year at $1,138,576; in 1S30.
$fi.K73,S04; in 1S10. J14.051.520; in 1S50. 543.4J1.
120; 1860, $149,277,504; 18S0. $S19,106,973; 1890,
$1,524,841,506, and in 1901. $2.597.094.5S0.
For -state banks the figures extend back
to 1840, and show for that year total do
posits to tho value of $75,693,857; 1850, $109,
5S6.595; I860. $257,229,562; 1S80, $20S.751,611;
1S90, $553,054.5S4, and 1901. $1,610,502,246.
For loan and trust companies the fig
ures begin with the year 1S75. and show
deposits for that year at $85,025,371; in 1SS0,
rJO.C0S.O03; 1S90, $536,456,492, and 1901, $1,271,
0S1.174. The figures of deposits In private banks
aro complete, from 1S75 to 1882, by reason
of the fact that deposits In such banks
were taxed during that period, and. there
fore, returns were complete; but on the
repeal of the law placing a tax on such
deposits, only about one-fourth of the
total number of private banks continued
to make reports to the Controller of tho
Currency. The figures for private bank
deposits subsequent "to 1SS7 are, therefore,
materially less than those of the period
1S75-82, when complete returns were avail
able. In 1875 the figures were $321,100,000;
