THE SUNDAY OEEGONIAN, PORTLAND,- NOVEMBER 15, 1903.
TEN YEARS FOR ROBBER
BOY BANDIT IS MADE AN EXAM
PLE OF BY COURT.
Charles Hoehn, Who Helped Hold Up
O. R. & N. Train, Reoelves
a Severe Sentence.
Ttn years in the penitentiary "was the
Sentence pronounced by Judge Cleland yes
terday on Charles Hoehn, the boy vrho
was concerned In the holdup of a train
of the O. R. & N. Co., near Corbett In
(Hoehn pleaded eullty to a charge of
assault with Intent to rob H. L. Stevenson,
the Axeman of the train. Two other In
formations against him In -which he -was
accused of attempting to rob O. 1. Bar
rett, the engineer, and Smith, the brake
man, were dismissed with the consent of
A. I Mohler, president of the O. R. & N.
E. J. Tracy, attorney for Hoehn, ad
dressed the court, stating that there were
extenuating circumstances connected with
the case. "He was attending school in the
faiate of "Washington where there is a
cooperative colony," said Hoehn's counsel,
"when be met Miner, who was the leader
of the party iiner proposed a trip to
aiexico, and the boy agreed to go. They
came to Goble, where they met Harsh
man, whose true name is Williams. After
"wards they came to Portland and pur
chased some powder, the boy not know
ing for what purpose. Next they went
-up tho Columbia River for a few days.
On the night of the train robbery they
went to Corbett, where Miner placed a
rifle in Hoehn's hands and told him what
to do. This was the flrst time the boy
was aware the intention was to hold up a
train, xxe was instructed not to let the
passengers come out of the cars. Miner
came along and asked the boy, "why don't
you do something?' and took his rifle and
flred it oft 'several times to frighten the
passengers. After the failure to rob the
train he proceeded with Miner as far as
"Wnatcom, where he left him and returned
to his old home at Sammlsh Flats and
went to work in a shingle mill. He Is
only 1& years old and did not realize what
he was doinp.
"He was overcome by the superior will
of Miner, witn whom he severed his con
nection after the attempted robbery just
as Boon as he could."
Deputy District Attorney Spencer con
tradicted the statement of the case made
by Mr. Tracy in several particulars. Mr.
Spencer said that Hoenn having pleaded
guilty to one information the others would
bo dismissed. This action was taken by
the District Attorney's office with the ap
proval of President Mohler, of the O. R.
& K- Co., and counsel said this was as far
as thoy should go in extending leniency to
"Statements made by him In the County
Jail," said Mr. Spencer, "would convict
blm if he was tried before any jury. He
was not led into this crime altogether.
He discharged his rifle several times, and
held up the brakeman. Smith. Stevenson,
the fireman, was covered by Harshman,
and Barrett, the engineer, by Miner, with
a shotgun. After the shooting of Harsh
jnan. and when he was supposed to have
been killed, the weapons he had were
taken by the boy, who also took from
Harshman what money he had In his
pocket. Four charges could have been
preferred against this prisoner. In view
of the fact of the nature of this offense
and that the punishment should serve as
a warning and have a deterrent effect on
others, both young irin and old men, I
think a severe penalty should be imposed."
Judge Cleland, in passing sentence, re
marked that the offense was a serious one
and that in dismissing two informations
all the clemency had been extended which
the court ought to allow when the magni
tude of the offense was considered. In
conclusion. Judge Cleland said: "The
court believes its duty to the public re
quires that you shall be punished and pun
ished severely. The sentence of this court
is that you ba conflned in the penitentiary
for a period of ten years.
The sentencing of Harshman Is posts
poned, for the reason that he is still un
der the care of County Physician E. P.
Geary- The court ordered the release of
James McGuIre and James Bryden, who
were held as witnesses. The men stopped
at McGuire's place at Government Island.
McGulre was brought to the County Jail
several days ago for the second time, and
it was then said that he might be charged
as a principal, but there was not enough
svlceuce to hold him.
LAWYERS COME HIGH.
.Many Attorneys Testify as to Value
of Services in Land Case!
Numerous attorneys testified in Judge
dears' Court yesterday in the suit of
Bauer & Greene against "William M.
Bray and Marshal J. Kinney, as to what
the services of Bauer & Greene were
worth for examining the title of 100,000
acres of land, and making an abstract,
which took months of constant work.
W. T. Mulr said a reasonable fee would
be $5000 to $7500.
Fred V. Holman considered $5000 the
lowest fee which should be charged.
Judge C. H. Carey placed the amount
at $5000 to $10,000.
Robert T. Piatt's figures were $4500 to
J. C. Flanders testified that $5000 was
a. reasonable fee.
J. V. Beach also considered $5000 a rea
H. H. Northup, who has practiced law
for 33 years, said $4500 to $CO0O was about
Judge Thomas O'Day calculated $5000 to
5G000 a reasonable fee.
E. C. Bronaugh's figures were $4500 to
E. B. "Watson, ex-Justice of the Supreme
Court, who is familiar with the history of
the land, expressed an opinion that the
-.work of examining the title was worth
$2000, but would not say how much addi
tional should be charged for a guaranteed
abstract of title.
It came out at the trial yesterday that
Bray and Kinney lost the $C5,000 option
they had on the land by not paying the
balance of the purchase price, $535,000. The
deal they expected to make fell through.
They had the option extended six months,
but still could not succeed in making
things go as they had anticipated.'' They
intended to sell the land to other parties
at a large profit. Coovert & Stapleton,
attorneys for Bray and Kinney, endeav
ored to make the point that in making
out their bill Bauer & Greene should
have considered the fact that their clients
never finally purchased the land.
Wasn't Asked to Go.
A nonsuit was granted by Judge George
yesterday in the $10,000 damage case of
P. M. Massey against M. Seller & Co.
Massey was injured by falling Into an
elevator shaft and the place was viewed
by the Judge and jury. In granting a
nonsuit Judge George said he was con
vinced from the evidence that If Massey
had not walked back into a dark place
in the store he would not have met with
the accident, and he was not asked to
go there, but went of his own accord.
Woman Thief Must Go to Jail.
Ninety days in the county jail was the
sentence imposed upon Emma Johnson
in the State Circuit Court yesterday for
stealing two dress skirts from Mrs. E. C.
Goddard. The young woman pleaded
guilty several days ago. Her husband,
Admer T. Johnson, is serving a five years'
term in the penitentiary for robbery.
Eight Years for Ten Cents.
Edwin Arpln, who pleaded guilty to rob
bing C. A. Fletcher of 10 cents on the
public highway at the point of a revolver,
was sentenced to eight years in the pen j
tentiary by Judge Cleland yesterday. Ar
pin had nothing to say when afforded an
opportunity by the court to make a
speech. Several days ago he fainted when
brought into the courtroom to be sen
tenced, but yesterday he succeeded In
controlling himself. He was born and
raised in Portland, and at the time of his
arrest confessed to numerous robberies
and also to the crime of arson, all of
which he afterwards denied.
Frederick E. "Wyatt, who passed a,
bogus bank check for $10 on George A.
Xane, was sentenced to two years and a
half in the penitentiary yesterday morn
ing by -Judge Cleland. "Wyatt pleaded
guilty, and had no excuse to offer.
The St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance
Company filed suit against the Arrow
Navigation Company to recover f!52 for
insuring the steamer Telephone. Of this
sum $217 is alleged to be due for taking
,a builder's risk of $27,000 on the Telephone
and $225 for hull Insurance placed by

The storm central yesterday evening off the
mouth of the Columbia River has divided Into
two parts; one of which Is now central over
Western British Columbia and the other over
the Great Salt Lake Basin. This disturbance
has caused severe gales along the coast and
high winds on the Sound and Straits. At the
mouth of the Columbia River a maximum ve-
improper Food Often Leads to To
bacco and Drink.
Improper food creates abnormal tastes
and there are many cases on the medical
records where the llauor habit and tobacco
habit have been caused by wrong food and '
have easily been cured by the use of the
scientific food Grape-Nuts, which so thor
oughly nourishes and rebuilds the nerves
that they stop the cry for stimulants.
A business man says: "For 30 years I
smoked on an average of 10 or 15 cigars
a day and then my nervous system col
lapsed and I had about made up my mind
that it was all up with me for I had tried
many times to break off from the to
bacco, but it always failed.
"Last May I was so run down I only
weighed 111 pounds, and I realized that I
must stop smoking and stuck to it for
about 10 days, but was so nervous and
out of sorts my family told me I had bet
ter go back to smoking, as It was impos
sible to live with me. It was just about
this time my wife brought a package of
Grape-Nuts on the table one morning,
and as I could eat nothing else, she ln-
I duced me to try a little of that. So I took
j a teaspoonful of it and, strange to say.
ii uisiea boou, udu uy ino ume l naa
it down I knew it had gone to the right
spot, so I took some more, and It was
the first food I had relished for weeks.
"So I kept up the use of Grape-Nuts
and as my appetite came back added other
foods and I am now back to my old
weight of 133 pounds, never felt better in
my life and, strange as it may seem, I
have no further craving for the tobacco
and I thoroughly believe that only the
courage and ambition I got out of the
food Grape-Nuts has given me the
strength to quit smoking. If everyone
knew the power of this wonderful food
you would not be able to build a factory
big enough to supply It." Name given by
Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
There's a reason.
