OFFICE GJRL IS WITNESS
Mysterious "Billy" I Shown Not to
Be Young Doctor Who Treated
Prisoner, but Had Had No
' Social Relations.
SPOKANE, Wash- July . (Special.)
More startling insinuations developed
today in the trial of Mrs. Delia Olds,
charged with murdering- her husband.
Dr. Olds. The most important witness
in the Dr. Harrington affair which was
brought into the case when Fred Olds
testified that Mrs. Olds was In love
with and was going to marry the phy
sician, was Miss Frankle Ryan, at
tendant at the former offices- of Dr.
Harrington and Dr. O'Neill.
When asked directly at the end of
her testimony what name Dr. Harring
ton bore. Miss Ryan answered: "Walter
-Webster Harrington." This direct re
ply effectually killed all the strength
of the 'mysterious Billy" stories as
far as Dr. Harrington is concerned.
'Marrlasje Proposal Dealed.
Dr. Harrington gave an emphatic
"no" to the question If he had asked
Mrs. Olds to marry him.
On cross-examination by Prosecut
ing Attorney Wiley, Dr. Harrington
said he had waited on Mrs. Olds for
the first time a year and a half ago.

possibly six months later a half dozen

"I suppose he did. The medicine
was sent with my name on it."
"Did you know Dr. Olds?"
"I had met him."
"Did you ever speak -to him about
treating his wife?"
"Isn't It a fact that Dr. Olds did not
know you were waiting on his wife?"
"I don't know that he did."
"Is that usual?"
"I don't know."
"You say you have no social rela

ASTORIA. Or., July . (Special.)
A motion to dissolve a temporary in
junctin in the case of the Eagle Cliff

John Dnny. one of Linn Countya best

of Oregon's Indian wars, died late last
night at his home in this city, agea

many years in- the upbuilding of this

Service to the state in the- Indian wars
and' as an active pioneer, sua umo
linked with Oregon history in that, he
Introduced the Chinese pheasant Into
the country. The first Mongolian
pheasants ever liberated in the United
States were turned loose by him on his
farm near Lebanon in 1881. They were
sent to him by his brother, the late
O N. Denny, of Portland, when he was
serving as United States Consul-Gene-eral
at Tlen-tsin, China. Mr. Denny
liberated 2 birds and from them all of
the birds which have been developed in
this state sprung. Since then pheas
ants have been shipped from Oregon
to almost every state in the Union.
John Denny was born ot Athens, O.,
September 6, 1840. and lived there un
til he was 12 years old. He crossed the
plains to Oregon with his parents In
1852, the trip requiring six months.
The family located in Lebanon,-where
Mr. Denny's father died four weeks
after they arrived. His mother then
took up a donation land claim of 320
acres about three miles west of Leba
non, where the family resided for manr
years." This old claim is included in
the 520-acre farm which Mr. ' Denny
owned at the time of his death.
Mr. Denny was educated at Santiam
Academy, in ibanon. In 184 he en
listed in Company F, First Oregon In
fantry, and served during, the Indian
disturbances of that time. He then
returned to his farm, where he resided
until a few years ago, when he retired
from active work and moved to Albany.
Through years of hard work Mr. Denny
acquired a competence.
- Mr. Denny served for 14 years as
School Clerk of his district and held
other positions of trust. An active Re
publican, he was prominent In the po
litical life of Linn County for several
years. He was a member of the Unl
versalist Church. He was also a mem
ber of McPherson Post of the Grand
Army, of this city.
He is survived by his widow and one
son. Dr. Malcolm J. Denny, of Port
land. He was married in 1867.
