August Erickson, the largest retail
liquor dealer in Portland, Is tinder ar
rest charged with permitting his saloon
to be open between 1 and 5 A. M.
prohibited hours for the sale or sift of
drinks. To Municipal Judge Cameron
yesterday moraine, Aler Sweek, coun
sel for Erickson, said he would call
for a Jury trlul, and lt In believed by
the police and generally understood
about the city, that a struggle is to be
made to break the ordinance compelling
natoons to close between 1 and 5 A. M.
Erlckson's buslneM Is so large that
he desires to run all nlrht, but, al-"
though he is willing to pay additional
license for the privilege, the city of
ficials have refused this.

It Is believed that August Erickson,
Portland's largest retail liquor merchant,
is going to make a strenuous effort to
break the city " ordinance which compels
saloons to be closed between 1 and 5 A. M.
He is under arrest, charged with viola
tion of this law. Yesterday morning,
when his case was called before Municipal
Judge Cameron, Alex Sweek. counsel for
the defendant, snld a Jury trial would be
requested. From this and other facts the
police and many others believe that the
accused, backed, perhaps, by strong In
fluences, purposes contesting the law, with
a view to knocking it out, so that all
night business may be operated.
Erickson and some other saloonkeepers
of the city have frequently attempted to
procure legislation from the City Council
that would permit them to operate their
establishment all night, but each effort
has failed. The arguments of- the liquor
dealers have been that their business has
grown to such an extent that they could
profit by remaining open at .all hours,
and that they were perfectly willing to
pay the municipality whatever was right
lor the privilege.
Erickson operates seven bars in his sa
loon, 'which extends from Second to Third
street, on Burnslde. He also runs a res
taurant in connection with the establish
ment. One of his dhlef attractions Is an
orchestra composed of women. The police
sought to divest the place of this music
recently, but Erickson called for a Jury
trial iand beat the ordinance. He has )
Kept tne women.
The- police say, and it is generally be
lieved, that Erickson purposes making, a
hard r fight to beat the ordinance which
specifies that saloons' -must be closed at 1
A. M and remain closed until 6 A. M. He
has rgpeatedly bfien arrested, convicted
and fined for violation of this law, and Js
now held under bail of $100. The case Is
to be, tried some day this week, the exact
date not being seL
This lo looked upon by the polke as In
niostr important" . matter that . has . come
into the Municipal Court for a long time.

Attorney Sw'cek declined to make .any
statement "as,.-to his Intentions regarding
the case. Deputy City Attorney Fitz.
gerald Is on a vacation, and the case. will

pected back Tuesday morning.
"What in blank have .you got me here
for?" was the startling question put to
Judge Cameron yesterday morning by P.
B. Hayes, an aged man, who was 'sub
penaed as a -witness in the case of the
city against Mabel Box.
Hayes was served, but informed the po
liceman that he would not obey the sum
mons, and kept his word. A bench war
rant was issued Thursday, and yesterday
morning the offender was brought In on a
charge of contempt of court.
"Don't use such language . as that in
tills court, or I'll keep you here," replied
Judge Cameron. "Why were you not
here in answer to that subpena? , I under
stand you have said there is no law that
can bring you into this court. Did you
"I was sick," said Hayes, calming him
self. "I was unable to come; I'm still
"Be" here Monday morning, and we'll see
what there Is about this matter," said
"I'll come If I'm able." replied Hayes.
"Come or send a physician's certifi
cate, if you're sick," said Judge Cameron,
"or I'll send a warrant after you."
Hayes walked from the room muttering
to himself. It is -said the reason he
wished to avoid coming into court Is be
cause of his family. The case In -which he
is wanted as a witness is a scandal of the
Henry Schaffer and J. H. Palmer, car
penters, Imbibed freely of Albina booze;
nails to the value of 50 cents disappeared
from a house they were building at Rus
sell and Goldsmith streets, and Schaffer
was suspected by Palmer. His arrest fol
lowed, he was Jailed, bailed out and so
bered. Then Palmer got sorry, and the
matter was patched up, and In court yes
terday the case was dismissed upon mo
tion of Deputy District Attorney Adams.
Lee John was fined 510 because he
operated a lottery In Chinatown and -was
caught at it by Policeman Craddock.
H. Wade, a small boy, who dumped a
load of garbage In a. vacant lot by order
of the manager" of the Wilklns 'Express
Company, was arrested -and thrown in
Jail because he did not have sufficient
money to ball himself out. His employers
refused to come to his assistance.
When the lad was brought before Judge
Cameron yesterday morning, the court,
after learning the facts, said It was a
shame that the employers of the boy had
neglected him and left him in jail a day
and a night. Ho was released on his own
recognizance, and the case Is receiving
further investigation at trie hands of Dep
uty District Attorney Adams. Other ar
rests are to be made.
J. F. Brown, arrested for giving stereop
tlcon exhibitions without a license, was
compelled to lake out the license.
BURNS MAKES ADMISSIONS
Surrenders to Boyle Portland Mine
Stock He Denied Having:.
COUNCIL BLUFFS, -la., Oct. 7. An un
expected development has occurred In the
famous Portland mining suit for the re
covery of Jl.000,000. now pending on a mo
tion for a new trial, through the surren
der of a certificate for 2000 shares of stock
and payment of $3300 dividends and in
terest by James P. Burns, defendant, to
James Doyle, plaintiff.
It is claimed Burns has been holding
this stock back for ten years, voting It as
his own in meetings of the company and
drawing dividends upon it. Doyle alleges
that Burns has 238,000 shares belonging
to the former, while Burns has heretofore
denied that he had any of Doyle's stock
in his possession. The verdict was in
Burns' favor at the trial of the case last
Doyle secured Information regarding the
certificate for 2000 shares from J. JL BIs
choff, former bookkeeper of the Portland
Mining Company and private secretary to
Burns. BIschoff testified for Burns in tho
different trials of the case, but has now
made a.scnsat!onal affidavit charging that
not only Burns but his attorneys knew
about this stock.
WILL REFUSE TO TESTIFY
Paper Trust Officers to Appeal iFrora
Court's Order., , .
ST. PAUL, Oct 7. Judge Vandeven'ter,
In the United States Circuit Court, late
this afternoon decided that an appeal
would not lie against his decision handed
down last Tuesday, citing members of the
General Paper Company to answer ques
tions, and to produce the books called (or
by the Government in Its suit for injunc
tion against the so-called paper trust.
The next step In the proceedings will
be for the witnesses named to appear be
fore Examiner Robert S. Taylor next
Thursday. It was Intimated by their at
torneys today that these witnesses will
refuse to obey the order directing them to
testify. They will be then punished for
contempt, probably by the Imposition of a
nominal fine. From this order of the
court an appeal will then be taken to the
Suprcrne Court, where the question of
their testimony will finally be adjudicated:

after somo 50 had been offered. The re
monstrances form & high stack and. the
taxpayers from whom they came made
life a burden for County Clerk Fields and
Assessor Slgler, the two men who, with
County Judge "Webeter, constitute the
Board. Judge "Webster did not attend the
sessions of the Board last week, owing to
private business in Eastern Oregon, but
will return at the end of the present
week, in time to take up the complaints
after they have been Investigated by the
assessor and his deputies.
Mr. Slgler is. neither surprised nor dis
mayed by the number o'f protests that
have been made against the new system
of cash valuations. Most of the big men
cantllo firms in the city have remon
strated, -saying that their stocks of mer
chandise and cash are much less than
arsesjwd by Mr. Slgler; In fact. If their
complaints should hold, the aggregate of
the assessments so protested would
amount to about one-half of the total
amount at which they are now assessed.
AVIII Investigate Protests.
Before the Board starts. In to equalize
the roll, the Assesror juill "get busy" on
the protests to determine their veracity.
He and his deputies will visit the realties
and the business-houses whose owners
aver they are excess! vly assessed. Mr.
SIgler's valuations In the assessment roll
were based on as complete Information
as he could secure, and he believes that
in the main they were fair and equitable.
Merchants who have objected to their
personal assessments will be required to
produce their books and invoices In evi
dence of their contention. The equaliza
tion, of course, will cause a shrinkage
from the $147,000,000 total now la the roll

the two members of the Board who are
associated with Assessor Slgler. but It
seems quite likely that they will sustain

trlcts. especially in North Portland. East
Portland and South Portland and farm
acreage have sent In relatively few com.
plaints. Several protests have come from
owners of valuable realties and buildings
In the busy part of the city, but they
are not nearly so far below the Assessor's
figures as those against personal assess
ments. Among the most Important pro
tests against assessments on realty and
buildings are: Rufus Mallory. south side
of Stark street between Third and

and Tenth: H. H. Xorthup. Hobart-Cur-tls

& Frank, building; Henry "Wemme, south
east corner Seventh and Ooak.
Mr. Slgler said last night that he did
not believe the shrinkage- In the roll, at
the hands of the Board of Equalization,
would reduce the total assessment below
$15.000.000. The total Is now more than
H".000.0. The equalization of realty
values, he believed, could be accomplished
without much difficulty and he foresaw
that most of the troubles of the board
would come in adjusting the personal as
sessment. In every case where lower val
uation was demanded on the personal roll '
by merchants, they would have to dem
onstrate with books and Invoices. Mr.
Slgler said that whenever errors were

mm COOKING CAPACITY
Is the final test of a good stove. How will it
cook and how much will it cook? Every inch
of space on a JEWEL stove is a serviceable
inch. No waste of soace. no wast nf rtpat.
The oven bakes as well on top as on the bottom, as well at
the end as. in the front Turn a damper and the heat is
concentrated where the greatest heat is wanted; turn another
and every section of the top plate can be pressed into serv
ice. A JEWEL possesses greater heating capacity than any
other "stove made, because every part is made on scientific
principles and best of all, the heat is saved to cook with
not diffused into kitchen. Come and have a range talk with us.
STOVES AND RANGES
Save FuelSave Money
JEWEL GAS RANGES
When we talk "Jewel Gas Range" to yon we talk
economy. Jewel Gas Ranges save just one-third in
fuel. Why7 Because the patent STAR BURNER
mixes air with the gas the air making one-third of
the fuel. Gas costs money air is cheap. A one-third
