Judge Cleland Passes Judg

in Circuit Court.

question were taken before the State Cir

K. W. Gillett, passing worthless checks,

Houghton was the first one to be called
up for sentence, and the penalty which
Judge Cleland inflicted upon him took the
fellow's breath away, so that it appeared
for a moment that he was about to col
lapse. Houghton's offense was not partic
ularly a bad one, but his record was
black. It could not be learned that he
ever did anything more useful than hang
about saloons, while he has been in the
state prison already. In fact, when he
was not in Jail the authorities were con
stantly uneasy, for "Chick" Houghton was
regarded as being- capable of most any
crime, and the police will breathe easier
now that he is out of the way for a few
With Houghton was a young and inex
perienced youth, James Sullivan. He was
with Houghton when that malefactor
went into a tailoring shop on Washington
street and stole two bolts of cloth. But
It appeared that Sullivan was not beyond
redemption. Walter Evans, a lawyer, told
of having loaned Sullivan money on sev
eral occasions and of having received It
back each time.
Court Heeds Plea.
Others interested themselves In the
young man's behalf, and as a result Judge
Cleland was inclined to be lenient. He
said he would impose a sentence of one
year and allow an immediate parole. Sul
livan thanked the court and promised to
behave himself well. He would never
have gone with Houghton except that he
had been drinking, and the liquor left him
in an Irresponsible state, he said.
John Donahue made a desperate effort
to escape penalty. "If you sentence me
you are sentencing God,' he said before
lie was taken into court. "I'm God." he
added, and he tried to look very wild and
crazy. But the law had found him out,
and this was one case where the insanity
game failed to work. Possibly had Dona
hue been able to employ costly alienists
and high-priced lawyers it would have
been otherwise. But he was a poor man,
nnd insanity is a rich man's luxury when
Interposed as an excuse for some crime.

Donahue feigned insanity, but failed to
make the plea good, and therefore he will
follow the sock-making industry during
the next five years of his life.
Gillett came in from California some
time ago with the army of northbound
tramps, and. getting hard-pressed for

Edward H Martin did not appear to
nter his plea yesterday in the Circuit
Court to the charge of having murdered
Nathan WVlff. The plea was to have
been entered at 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon before Judge Gantenbein. but City
Attorney Kavanaugh. who is acting tem
porarily for the accused man, was unable
to be present and the case was put over
until Monday, much to the disappoint
ment of a roomful of curious people.
Public opinion seems to have under
gone a change' as to Martin's guilt and
many expressions are heard to the effect
that he is Innocent. The authorities say,
however, that if there ever was a cold
blooded murderer, guilty beyond the pos
sibility of any doubt, the same is Martin.
Much that will not be available as evi
dence gives those on the Inside of the
case a stronger belief in the man's guilt
t ban would be possible otherw ise. H is
wife's story, freely given at the time of
Martin's arrest, will not be available at
the trial, and many circumstances of a
most incriminating nature may be ruled
out of court under the rules of evidence
Whether Martin can be convicted is a
matter which can only be guessed at, but
if he is actually not guilty he Is the vic
tim of the most remarkable set of cir
cumstances that ever wove themselves
wbout any man connected with a crime,
the authorities say.
COURT ACCEPTS RESIGNATION
J. T Armstrong Succeeded by Miss
Noon a Noon Estate Trustee.
J. T. Armstrong's resignation as trustee
!of the W. C. Noon estate was accepted by
the Circuit Court yesterday forenoon, and
Viola E. Noon, daughter of the deceased,
, mas appointed to act In his stead. An
! order to this effect was issued by Judge
(O'Day in response to petitions for the
i acceptance of Mr. Armstrong's resigna
t tion and Miss Noon's appointment.

ceipts to be delivered over to the various
heirs. W. C. Noon, Jr., was also named
as a trustee. Differences arose in regard
to the handling of the company's affairs,
and Cake and Noon withdrew. Mrs. Noon
was then appointed a trustee, and later
came Armstrong's resignation, accompa
nied by an accounting of all money and
property handled by him. This account
ing was found satisfactory and was accepted.
DEFENDS HIS POSITION
Mr. Fletcher Favors $90,000 for the
ST.' JOHN, Or.. May 16. (To the Edi
tor.) I observe that C. N. McArthur -replied
in The Oregonian of May 8 to my
letter of May 2, In which I gave reasons
why the $125,000 appropriation for the
University of Oregon should not pass.
Mr. McArthur makes an error when
he says: "Mr. Fletcher charges the
alumni of the university with subsidizing
the newspapers." Now. what I did say
was, "the general - belief is that they
buy them." Whether . the reason for
such a conclusion Is sufficiently strong
as to justify that belief. 1 do not know.
But I do say that there are many cir
cumstances which would indicate that the
public might not be entirely wrong.
Mr. McArthur says that a majority of
our citizens are beginning to see that this
referendum movement was not begun in
good faith. Just what he means by
good faith" It is difficult to divine. But
if he means there was any trickery about
it. I am sure he is- in error. The Grange
PORTLAND MAX OWNS RKI.IC
OF THE MAYFLOWER.
-1- . .
Kettle That Came Over With the
D. Hagen, of 166 Chapman
street, is the owner of a kettle
which was brought to America
by one of the Pilgrims in the
Mayflower. Mr. Hagen bought
the kettle about a year ago in
Minnesota. It was at that time
the property of Mr. Hagen's
neighbor, John Hone. It had
been in the possession of Mr.
Hone's family for generations,
the original owner being one
Cushman, a member of the Pil
grims who landed on Plymouth
Rock in 1620.
thought the appropriation was "too
large," the Governor thought It "exces
sive" and the taxpayer considered he had
a right to have a large "continuing" bur
den submitted to him for rejection or
ratification before it was everlastingly
too late. And what was wrong about
that? Where was the absence of "good
faith"? Why did the university seek to
deprive the people of this right? Because
it was "afraid its defeat would give the
state a black eye." How considerate!
The very thing that would have placed
Oregon on an eminence of its own the
only thing that would have shown the
world that the people of Oregon were
men and rfot slaves.
Mr. McArthur refers to the almost
unanimous vote by which the bill passed
both houses as proof that It was a wise
measure. How about the bill that the
Legislature passed at the same session
compelling the railroads to give all the
members passes? Was that a good meas
ure? I am aware that when the univer
sity, the normal schools and other kin
dred institutions form a combine they
can hold up any measure or pass any
bill they desire, but herein lies the dan
ger. Other members who have bills
on other subjects which they wish to see
become laws yield to this powerful ma
chine, and vote the appropriations they
demand in order to secure the passage
of their own measures. This was how
the $125,000 appropriation became a law.
Mr. McArthur says that a "continuous
appropriation can be amended or re
pealed." I am aware of it, unless it
comes up against the great educational
combination. If ever the $125,000 appro
priation is amended, it will be to increase
it to a si,iU greater amount. And that is
one of the strongest reasons why the
taxpayers should kill it now, while they
have the chance.
I see by a letter from McArthur in the
St. John Review that Messrs. Palmer,
Meker and myself want to "kill the uni
versity." So far as this charge applies
to me. I deny it. I -am not only willing
but anxious that the university should
get a liberal appropriation, but I do not
wish to see it "hog the whole thing."
If it had got 'double its present allow
ance, viz., $90,000, I would have not one
word to say, for I suppose it must be
maintained, since it has been built.
But if this thing goes much further we
may find, as General W. H. Odell. of
Salem, says that as a matter of economy
it would be less expensive to pay the
traveling expenses and tuition for each
of the would-be wards of the state for
educational purposes in Harvard Univer
sity or any of the great schools already

STRATHGYLE ABOUT READY

6 Pence Marine News.
The Norwegian steamship Hornelen,
Captain Nilson, cleared yesterday for La
Boca with a part cargo of lumber. She
will proceed from Portland to Comox
and thence to Tacoma, where she will
complete her cargo. The Hornelen had
on board 1,540.018 feet of timber, valued
at $18,480. LaBoca is the government
landing place at Ancon in the canal zone.
Captain Francke, who was master of the
steamship Dakota at the time she was
wrecked in Japanese waters, haa signed
as supercargo of the Hornelen.
The British steamship Strathgyle fin
ished loading late yesterday afternoon.
9he has on board close to 3,550,000 feet.
The departure of the two steamships will
bring the lumber exports up to a big
figure for May.
During the past week there has been
little movement in wheat charters. The
disengaged vessels in the harbor are all
owned by members of the Association of
Sallingship Owners and the rate demand
ed for old-crop loading is 27 shillings and
6 pence. This is a greater rate than ex
porters desire to pay at this time. A num
ber of vessels have lately been taken for
22 shillings and 6 pence and offerings have
been made for even a less figure than
that. The Vendee and the Neck were se
cured at that figure.
Charters for new crop loading will be
gin to move about the first of June. There
are a number of craft available for Oc
tober and November loading but shippers
are holding back. The condition of the
grain market is a little unsettled and it
is too early to make an accurate forecast
on the new season's crop.
SEEK GOVERNMENT APPROVAL
Port or Portland Resolutions to Be
Sent to the War Department.
Colonel S. W. Roessler, United States
Engineer officer in charge of the local

Commission at the last meeting of the
board relative to the speed of steam ves

Ross Island and the St. John bridge, to
the War Department with a request that
the resolutions be approved.
Before the regulations can be properly

Please Mention This Paper.
Don't put your next Winter's coal in your cellar at the present time. Coal that is carried
through the hot Summer months is bound to deteriorate more or less, then when you come to usa
it you are liable to condemn the quality. Freshly mined coal contains all the life and burning
qualities and gives better satisfaction than coal that has been in the open air for months. Our mine
is located close to the Columbia River, and coal mined today can be delivered in your home the day
after tomorrow; so why buy a year's supply ahead f We have our own barges and our own steam
boats, so are absolutely independent in the matter of transportation. Wat we will do, however,
is this : We will send you a sample sack of coal weighing 100 pounds, from our Coal Creek Mine,
charging you 50 cents. You try the coal, satisfy yourself as to its quality, and if you don 't like it
we will give you your money back. If it suits you, then we will book your order at $6.00 per ton
and agree to deliver to you freshly-mined, clean lump coal, in any quantity you want and at any
time during the next 12 months. In this way you are protected against a raise in price, and have
absolutely assured yourself that you will have all the coal you want, and when you want it. Try
the coal and make your contracts now for your future needs. We guarantee the quality.
Shares in Tiiis Company at Fifty Cents Each
We are offering a limited amount of stock in the Coal Creek Coal & Mining Company at 50
cents pet share, payable 25 per cent down and 15 per cent monthly until paid for. The money de
rived from the sale of the stock is to be used in opening up another vein of coal, which will more
than double our present capacity, and to develop our wonderful water power and install a com
plete .electric plant with which to operate the mine, run our trains and light our mine and village.
We then are in position to produce coal at a minimum of cost, and with our water transportation
can deliver coal to any city or town touched by the Columbia or Willamette Rivers cheaper than
any mine on earth. Remember that no coal mine yet discovered in this section can lay claim to tha
four distinct advantages which we claim for this one : "
An excellent quality of coal and millions of tons of it.
Coal Creek, crossing our domain of 2700 acres, with a fall of five hundred feet in two miles, ia
capable of furnishing thousands of horsepower for equipping the plant with electricity.
Our own line of steamers and barges and the broad highway of the Columbia to haul it on.
The names, of F. B. Jones, W. E. Jones and R. B. Rose furnish a sufficient guarantee that tha
affairs of the compauy will be honestly and intelligently administered.
To demonstrate to you our unbounded faith in this proposition, we will make the following
proposition to all holders of our stock outside of our immediate official family: We will agree
not to accept any interest or dividend on the investment that we have already made, which
amounts to $50,000, until such time as the holders of this new issue of stock receive at least 10
per cent annually on their investment. It is against the law for any corporation organized on a
stock basis to guarantee a specified amount of dividends, but our property earned 12 per cent last
year on the money invested in it, and we know that it will earn at least that much this year, and
we are willing to apply these earnings upon the new capital which we are interesting until such
time as the new investment will start earning dividends on its own account. This is a very liberal
proposition and virtually guarantees investors at least 10 per cent on their money the first year,
with a reasonable assurance that in future years their money will earn from 15 per cent to 25
per cent annually.
Call at either of our offices and see the coal and let us put you in the way of making a safe in
vestment that will assure you permanent and regular dividends. The mine earned 12 per cent las-t
year, and with our increased capacity and facilities for cheap mining should easily earn 20 to 25
per cent annually in the future. We have turned down two flattering bonafide offers for this
property which meant a much higher valuation on stock we hold than "we are offering it to the pub
lic for, but with the' sale would pass the control, and as we consider the property well worth a
million dollars, we can afford to wait and dig it out ourselves and share it with the friends that
join us. We would be glad to send any one interested to the mine so that they can see for them
selves just what we have. This is a proposition that should appeal to large and small investors
alike. It is so much different from the average mining investment offered to the public. It is a
local enterprise, backed by local people, who have spent a lifetime in the community and stand
high in the business world. You can go to the mine, and see for yourself and be convinced that
every statement we make in connection with this property is really underestimated than otherwise.
There have been and will continue to be coal mining stocks offered to the public. Investigate
them thoroughly, tben come and let us show you what we have to offer. The comparison will
demonstrate to you the true merit of our proposition.' Other dealers will tell you our coal is no
good. Don't believe them. Try it and see for yourself. We will save you many a dollar in your
year's fuel bill.
