All but one of today's witnesses were
summoned by Judge Hanford's attor
neys and testified strongly in his fa
vor. The exception was I Frank

he had seen Judge Hanford twice
asleep on the bench and twice appar
ently intoxicated. On one of the lat
ter occasions, witness testified, the
Judge was about to enter the court
room in the morning.
Liquor la Smelted.
' Witness smelted liquor as the Judge
passed. On the second occasion when
witness observed the Judge apparently
Intoxicated he was on the bench and
wltnes was arguing a case before
him. Witness thought the Judge's habit
ual drowsiness on the bench might be
due to his heavy eating at lunch hour.
Today's witnesses Included some of
the best known citizens of Seattle. The
first. Superior Judge Albertson. testi
fied that Judge Hanford was not in
toxicated at a meeting In the Alham
bra Theater, as testified by two de
tectives. Witness had never seen the
Judge intoxicated, but had seen him
drink moderately at the Ralnlr Club.

M. B. Haines, a real estate dealer; C.
1 Ide. formerly United States Marshal,
and E. C. Cheasty. a merchant, had
known the Judge many years, had seen
him drink occasionally, but had never
leen him apparently Intoxicated.

', Representative McCoy, who yesterday
questioned a witness on matters re
lated to the Ell Melovlch case, in which
Judge' Hanford set aside a verdict of
112,000 damages for loss of an arm. on
frounds not named by counsel for eith
er side, returned to the subject today.
The witness had replied to McCoy
thi-t Hanford's action was not unprece
dented; that the State supreme Court,
in the case 'of Williams v: Spokane
Falls & Northern Railway Company,
had set aside a verdict for excesslve
ness. on a point not raised by counsel
for either side. McCoy, by question
ing attorneys, brought out that the
decision was written by Judge Root and
that counsel for the railroad was M.
J. Gordon, formerly Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court, Root and Gordon
afterward having undergone Investi
gation by the State Bar Association for
alleged corruption.

Walt for Weary 'Hours. 7-
VANCOUVER, Wash., July 6. (Spe
cial.) That Vancouver needs a bridge
across the Columbia River connecting
with Portland was more clearly dem
onstrated July 4 than at any time pre
viously, when there were at least 25,
000 visitors In the- city. The crowds.
In returning to Portland, began shortly
after noon to gather at the foot of
Washington street, the ferry landing,
and grew in size until there were sev
eral thousand there at one time.
When the athletic events at Van
couver Barracks and the horse racing
at the Clark County fair grounds were
over, at 4 o'clock, the automobiles be
gan to line up to go on board and oy
7 o'clock there were two lines extend
ing eight blocks up Washington- street.
Many In the latter part of the line
waited upwards of three hours to cross,
as the capacity of the ferry is 12 or
13. owing to the size of the cars. In
addition to the machines the forry car
ries easily 1000 persons.
The record trip of the ferry's ex
istence was made July 4, when 1287
passengers were on board at a single
crossing. Including the crew, there
were more than 1300 on board.
. It has been learned that several
thousand persons did not come over,
knowing that the transportation fa
cilities would be taxed. Scores of au
tomobile owners left their cars on the
Oregon shore and crossed on the ferry.
The size of Vancouver has increased
so rapidly that a bridge seems an ab
solute necessity.

'BLUE SKY'lAW DEFENDED
Secretary of State Olcott Telia Why
Law Is Xeeded.
SALEM, Or., July 6. (Special.) In
making a defense of the proposed "blue
sky" law today Secretary Olcott set out
five distinct points which he declared
should be taken into consideration when
any discussion of the bill comes up.
In his statement . Secretary Olcott
said: ' : , '
"First The, law is needed and has
been' prepared to give the state super
vision over stock-selling corporations.
"Second The fees from this class of
corporations will pay all the expense
of administration of the law as well as
all the general expense of maintaining
the corporation" department, and leave
a surplus, instead of taking $7000 out
of the general, fund for handling the
corporation department, as at present.
- "Third The 'blue sky: bill does not
apply primarily to corporations not en
gaged In selling stock, and . will cost
this class of corporations but little, if
anything.
"Fourth The bill will prevent 90
per cent of the fake companies from
organizing and put the other 10 per cent
out of business very soon after they
begin Illegal-operations; it will , save
the people not less than Jl. 000, 000 a
year, now squandered on worthless se
curities, and the corporations whose
previous ' misconduct has made - this
legislation necessary will pay the en
tire cost of administering the corpor
ation ia'ws with thousands of dollars to
spare. ,
"Fifth Contrary to general ' opinion,
there is no constitutional or statutory
Inhibition against the amendment by
the. Legislature of an initiative, meas
ure, and If any vital defects develop In
the "blue sky' bill they may be corrected
by the 1913 session of the Legislature.
"Those who - criticise the 'blue sky"
bill on the ground of economy seem to
overlook the fact that the cost of ad
ministering the corporation laws at the
present time , is about $7000 a year,
which will be saved when the new bill
goes into effect. . -
"Also-it should be remembered that
the present schedule of fees .and licenses
remains unchanged and that the. revenue
to be derived from corporations by vir
tue of the 'blue sky bill will be in ad
dition to the present revenue of about
$200,000 a year. -
"I am in favor of a separate depart
ment to handle this branch of the state
service, because it Is the only business
like solution of a difficult problem. The
present plan of dividing the work be
tween two departments is very unsatis
factory. "The 'blue sky bill will make the
work of supervising corporations one
of the most Important branches of the
state government. - It will be too big
for any man with no greater powers
than those of a clerk. It should be in
the hands of an official with final
power to act and one -who shall serve
under bond and be held strictly re
sponsible for results. Such a man Is
certainly worth $3000 a year.- It Is a
matter of small Importance whether he
Is appointed by the Governor or Sec
retary of State, all bills must be audit
ed by this office In either case.-
"It approved by the voters the law
will go Into effect Immediately after
the election and if there are any serl'
ous defects they may be remedied with
out waiting for two years, as would be
necessary If the law were enacted by
the Legislature."

ACCUSATIONS ARE MADE
Abandoning Position as Chairman of
Meeting Town's' Executive Takes
- Occasion to Assert Co-Workers
Interests Selfish. .
SEASIDE, Or., July 6. (Special.)
Proceedings in the Council Chamber
were completely ruptured last evening
over the matter of straightening and
widening Bridge street.
Trouble.'- which has been brewing
since the fire, appeared In a new form
last night, Mayor Gilbert abandoning
his position as chairman of the meet
ing' fn' open disgust and in an unof
ficial capacity expressed his feelings
fn' vigorous Vefn' on the way matters
had been conducted.
' Warming' cbns'lderably at the way the
act for street Improvement had been
caught' on a shag. Mayor Gilbert made
various accusations and affirmed that
members' of the Council had been using
their, off iqe, for furthering personal in
terests.' .The street Improvement act has been
discussed at length for the past six
weeks, and, thinking that an agree
ment should be reached by this time,
Mr. Gilbert had hoped for a settlement,
and the continued delay and disagree
ment of the Council became a matter
of great aggravation.
Council Passes Act.
After informing the refractory Coun
cllmen that they were free to pass
whatever acts they thought best, the
Mayor ceased to take part In the meet
ing, and with Councilman Henrlch act
ing .as temporary- chairman, the Coun
cil passed the act for widening Bridge
slceet according, to the wishes of the
mainrltv alnnir different lines . from
those, draws Jy .Engineer Morris. This
was done despite the warning of Mayor
Gilhert. that the. act would be vetoed.
The plan advocated by the-lHayor and
Councilraen.BrallUer and Henshaw was
prepared by Ulty engineer murris, i
Portland. This plan provides for a

Bank Depot to the ocean, directly south
of the Hotel moore. ins j"K

completely done away with by this
plan, but. this feature of the plan also
furnishes the principal cause ui uun-
