Bench Warrants May Be Issued, but
- It Is Said Election Officials Are
Not Violating Any I-av in
Refusal to Appear.
Four clerks of the election board of
Precinct 37 refused to appear In Judge
Kavanaugh's court next Tuesday when
Served with citations by Coroner Dam
masch and Deputy Coroner Smith yes
terday. They were cited to appear to
fCfve evidence with regard to the al
leged irregularities discovered on 123
ballots during the shrievalty recount.
"It will take the whole police force
to bring me into court." Miss May
Hoffman, one of the clerks. Is said to
have told Deputy Coroner Smith.
' Bert St. Helens would not take the
paper from the officer's hand, so he
was not legally served. P. J. Sawyer
and Fred Hoffman were the other two
clerks who declared they would not
appear in court.
Others Willing to Appear.
Four others, who were served and
expressed their willingness to appear
In court, were W. L. E. Knowles. It.
Copeland and Mr. and Mrs. A. U Clark.
Subpenas or bench warrants may be
issued to bring the four clerks into
court, but Judge Kavanaugh would not
say last night what action, if any. he
would take.
The election officials, it is said, were
not violating tin law in refusing to
appear, for no money is provided at
present for their fees as witnesses on
ritation. Should attorneys for Sheriff
Hurlburt or cx-Sherlff Word desire to
put up the money for witness fees, the
four can be subpenaed and on Weir
lefusal then to appear they can be
brought by force.
Mlu Hoffman May Know Details.
The evidence of Miss Hoffman, who
made emphatic refusal to appear, was
regarded as highly important in ac
counting for the care of the ballots on
November 4. the day following the
election. ' '
' Examination of the 12S disputed bal
lots bearing erasures in the shrievalty
column continued oil day yesterday by
Attornevs Dan Malarkey. for Sheriff
Hurlburt. and Paul C. Farrens. for Mr.
Word. On nearly all of these votes
rust for Mr. Hurlburt had been erased
and a vote for Mr. Word substituted.
On the remaining few votes for New
man or Lull, the other two candidates,
had been erased and Word votes
marked in.
Probe Results Kept Secret.
Special Investigator Walter Geren.
of the District Attorney's office, is
examining the ballots with the attor
neys, with a view to presenting the
rase to the i;ranl Jury if the evidence
is deemed sufficient. The results of
this Investigation, however, are being
Kept secret.
The recount of ballots in other pre
cincts continued in room StiO of the
Courthouse all day yesterday, and at
i o'clock 156 precincts had been
minted, practically all of them com
plete. The results showed that Sheriff
Hurlburt has gained 101 votes so far
since the recount started.
So far not one of the allegations of
error or miscounting set forth in ex
Sheriff Word's complaint to institute
the recount proceedings has been sub
stantiated. Hurlburt gains, over the
official count, have been steady, and.
although Word has Jumped ahead in a
few precincts, the majority against
him continue to grow.
Reports at Meeting Show Assistance
Rendered During Year.
The annual meeting of the General
German Aid Society was held last
night. Reports will be made on the
work done of the past year. The
society was taxed last year to a
greater extent by far than at any time
Many applicants for assistane have
been found to be impostors while on
the other hand many worthy cases
were found and substantial assistance
rendered and will be rendered.
The following officers were elected:
President. F. Eilers; vice-president,
fharles J. Schnabel; secretary. H. C.
liohlmann; treasurer, Peter Wagner:
trustees for three years, Fritz Niklas

- The reports show a heavier drain on
the treasury than at any given point
in Its history of more than 10 years on
account of the war. Many Germans
have had to leave British Columbia
nd Canada. Of course most if not all
vt those coming to Portland needed as
t'ooe Association to Consider Reso
lution Against Sale.
To escape the stigma of suspicion of
law violation attached to drug stores
conducted In dry territory, the coos
County Pharmaceutical Association has
under" consideration a resolution that
would stop the members from selling
any spirituous, vinous or malt liquors,
v hether on prescription of a physician
or otherwise. The association includes
most of the druggists in Coos County,
excepting those of Bandon.
The resolution suggests that the
druggists may escape payment of an
Internal revenue license and the reflec
tion that dealing in liquor may have
tin their integrity.
Police Station Attache Asked If
That Is Proper riace.
"Is this the place where they arrest
people?- asked J. Shirley, aged 31 years,
as he entered the Police Station last
"Do you want to be arrested?" de
manded Desk Officer Nilea.
"Well. I dunno. but I hear you"ve a

He was wanted on a charge of carry

WW. BROWN, of Eastern Ore
gon, as told in The Oregonian
yesterday has made a will
leaving $500,000 to ; certain religious
and educational institutions, but few
people know who "W. W. Brown," is.
So I will tell the -readers of The
Oregonian something about this In
dividual, as I have done several times
I will call him Bill Brown, the name
be is known by all over .the eastern
part of the state. Nor do I call him
Bill, and leave on the quotation marks,
through any disrespect. On the con
trary, I call Kim Bill because that is
the only name by which he is general
ly known, save on the books of various
banks with which he has dealings.
Come with me and i will take you
to Bill's ranch over in Crook County.
We will, to make the Journey shorter,
start out from Mrs. McDowell's hotel
in Prineville. We will take the Paulina
road and travel past Paulina and up to
the head of Buck Creek, with Buck
Mountain just to the East, and travel
down the trail on the west side of that
creek for seven or eight miles until
we come to the little stage station and
postofTice at Fife. We are now 80
miles from Prineville: by continuing on
the same trail we might pass over Buck
Mountain, past the celebrated ranch- of
Carroll Cecil, then down Spring Creek
and on to Burns, 60 miles beyond Fife.
Nan We Arrive at Bill's Place.
Here we continue down Buck Creek
a little more than a mile and here
we are at the ranch house or head
quarters of Bill Brown. There are
various buildings, storehouses, wool
sheds, stables, a mercantile house and
finally the splendid mansion occupied
by Bill and some of his employes. 1
so often have visited this house and
described it that surely many of my
readers must remember Its splendid
furniture, its great ballroom, its baths,
its water system, its great living-room
and Bill's bedroom and office com
bined. It used to be thought some of
the houses on the French-Glenn ranches,
were the finest ranch houses in the
West Possibly they were ir their
day, and some of them, notably the
P ranch, is larger than Bill s. But In
the way of furnishings and finish none
of them ever approached Bill's ranch-
bouse on Fife Crssk.
Before it was built, when the lum
ber was arriving, as the splendid trap
pings came In, it was rumored that
when the new mansion was ready for
occupancy - there also would appear a
Mrs. Bill. I remember I assisted In
unpacking and placing some of the
furniture and I twitted Bill on the
subject. He gave but scant response,
kept his own counsel but up to date
there is no Mrs. Brown.
It U IS years ago since Bill and two
of his brothers drove their little band
of 1500 sheep across the Cascade Moun
tains into Harney Valley. They made
their first stand near the present post
office of Egli. not far from Wagon
Tire Mountain, adjacent to Lost Creek.
Money Made at Teaching.
Bill had made his money to start
with as a school teacher ... the Wil
lamette Valley, being a graduate- of
Willamette University. I am -not sure
which of his brothers was with him. as
there are five of the Brown boys. Two
of them. Drs. K. C. and S. A. Brown,
are leading practitioners and capital
ists of Portland: one is a wealthy
farmer in Clackamas County, and the
fourth Is, I think, a farmer of larse
means In Yamhill County.
The sheep business along in the late
'SOs was not prosperous and the little
band of 1500 soon became a band of
700. Then Bill bought out his brothers
and went It alone. He filled ore pocket
with raisins and. another with strych
nine and followed those sheep out over
the range. When they stopped. Bill
stonped: when they traveled, Bill trav
eled. In rain, in snow, in sleet and in
sunshine. Bill followed those sheep.
When the band increased to 2500 he
hired an assistant, as but why delay
the finale? Why. in a short time there
were 30.000 of them and Bill was the
largest sheepowner in Central Oregon.
Then, when the sheep business was
at high-tide and range horses worth
about 5 or ? a head." Bill let It -be
known that he would pay top price for
a few thousand brood mares. People
thought Bill was mentally unbalanced,
so thev unloaded a few thousand on
him and laughed in their sleeves at
him as ther pocketed the money.
Big Maasloa Constructed.
For the last five or six years Bill has
been selling his 5-year-old colts from
those marea at $70 a head at the cor
ral. When he made his first big sale
he removed his headquarters to Buck
Creek and erected the mansion men
tioned, and lives there still. But his
range Is anywhere within 100 or so
miles to the south and west, and les
ser distances to the north and east. Ho
owns about 13.000 acres of land, or
did three years ago. He most likely
has a few thousand acres more now.
He probably sells over 1000 head of
horsta every year and he still lias
many thousand head of sheep. In fact,
he will never go out of the sheep busi
ness. He told me that the horse busi
ness was all right as a money-maker,
"but give me sheep," he continued. He
also had, when I last asked him, about
1000 head-of cattle.
If yon were to meet up with Bill, on
the range, in Prineville or on the
streets of Portland, you. would take
him for a clergyman, Vell. you would
not be far amits. for he. is one of the
most deeply religious men I ever knew.
He abhors; .worse than abhors, liquor
of all kinds, will not tolerate profanity
in his presence., dislikes tobacco in its
every form. He practically keeps the
accounts of fcis great business in his
He 1s the most liberal man in Ore
gon. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of
widows and orphans and broken men In
Central Oregon, will tell you that the
poor never had such a friend in need as
Bill Brown. I might cite at least one
instance of a wealthy man of that part
of our state who owes his first stake
to the confidence of Bill Biuwn. He
has helped build, or maintain, practi
cally every church between the Cas
cades and the Snake, between the Blues
and the Nevada, line and is still giv
ing. Credit at All Banks Good.
He is an eccentric man. For Instance,
It is said he once wrote a check for
a thousand dollars on a label torn
from a tomato can. Indeed, the bank
ers say many of his checks are written
on wrapping paper. Any bank in Cen
tral Oregon will cash A check Blgned
W. W. Brown, no matter how his ac
count stands with them. A Prineville
merchant told me that he received an
order from Bill for. goods amounting
to more than $8000 which was written
with a lead pencil on butcher's papen
with it a check for $5000 on the same
sheet of paper.
Bill has made several large gifts,
notably one of $30,000 to a Willamette
Valley educational institution and an
other of $16,000 to a religious school
at Pendleton. His smaller gifts . in
magnitude far overreach these: but
Bill is non-commital when it comes
to telling about his good deeds you
have to go to those whom he has as
sisted for such facts.
That Bill now has given a half mil
lion. Dresumably to be paid after his
death, is no news to those who know
him best: for a number of years It nas
been expected that the educational and
religious institutions of Oregon would
get the bulk of his large fortune when
he passes away, which will, in all like
lihood, be many years from now. He
is about 62 years old, as strong as an
ox. as rugged as a sturdy oak, takes
the best of care of himself, has no bad
habits he ought to live for 40 years
yet. If he only lives to be 70 he will
die the richest man in Oregon unless
he gives away hi3 money in great
chunks, which he may do.

Later he was arrested on this charge,
spent a night in Jail and was released

County Hospital From our inspec
tion of the County Hospital we are of
the opinion that this institution Is
properly and efficiently managed. The
conditions existing, however, at said
institution demand that a new modern
sanitary building be erected within the
necrtyUJai1 From our inspection of the
City Jail we are unanimously of the
opinion that Portland should be proud
of this building and Its equipment We
desire to commend those in charge for
their justifiable pride in the manner in
which they attend to the afairs of this
institution and for their efficiency in
discharging their duties.
General Conditions The .closing of
the saloons in 1916 undoubtedly will
bring the question of public comfort
stations before the city and county au
thorities. -We suggest that steps be
taken within the next few months
toward the erection and maintenance of
a sufficient number of comfort stations
in the business district ot Portland to
accommodate the public.

In view of the present conditions, we
recommend and suggest that some pro
vision be made for an institution which
we mav call a Reform. School. Such a
school should have a cottage system or
some other System that would Insure
the segregation of the inmates. Ihe
age limit of boys who should be sent
to such a place, we think should be as
nVh as 25 or 30 years. We also believe
that the. Prison Board should have the
Power to transfer inmates to the State
Penitentiary from the Tleform School
and to the Reform School from tne
nenitentiary. This would insure, in
manvases a more complete segrega
tion "of youthful criminals.
