schlickcr, proprietor of the apartment
house, was bound and robbed of about
1200 by two masked men who made
their escape down the back, stairway
of the apartment house.
Mr. Schlicker was found about a
half hour after the robbery by A. B.
Clark, a street car employe, who lives
at the place, and the police were
The robbery was the work of men
who were familiar with the apart
ment house, In the opinion of the
police. Lieu tenant of Detectives Goltz
and Detective Tackaberry headed the
investigation made by the police but
no definite clew was found.
The two men who perpetrated the
holdup evidently entered the apart
ment of Mr. fcschlicker while he was
busy in another part of the house.
Mr. Schlicker was working at his
desk and had just taken out a purse
containing approximately $200 pre
paratory to arranging for the pay
ment of some plumibitjK bills when the
two men came from a side room
where they had been concealed. Both
carried revolvers, and had handker
chiefs tied over the lower part of their
faces. They commanded Kchlicker to
hold up his hands and when he com
plied they marched him into the
dining room of the apartment and
bound him. They then took the
money and escaped.
Apparently no one saw the men
leave the apartment, although one of
the residents told of hearing a couple
of men go down the back stairway
about the time of the holdup. Whether
or not they made their escape in an
automobile is not known.
Mr. Schlickcr finally succeeded in
attracting attention by rolling around
until he could beat against one of
the doors of the apartment leading
into the hall. This, and his cries
jfinally led A. B. Clark to investigate
and find Schlickcr, hound hand and
foot, lying upon the floor of the
apartment. The robbers had left the"
purse but had taken the money.
The police secured a meager de
scription of the two robbers from Mr.
fcichlicker, who said one was short and
the other tall. Owing to the fact that
they wore masks he was unable to
ive an accurate description.

Plant Sales Bring flSO.OOO.
In addition to bringing fame and
honor to Mr. Hill, his new rose, Co
lumbia, also brings him fortune. Cre
ated just as the United States was en
tering the world's war, Mr. Hill, filled
with patriotism, gave his new rose
child the name "Columbia," and in its
initial year he sold 484,000 plants.
which brought him about 150,000. He
did not regard Columbia as an ideal
outdoor rose, but developed it for hot
house culture and the commercial
trade, but since it started to make its
record in the Portland test garden, it
has brought another fortune to Mr.
Hill and his receipts are now esti
mated to be between a quarter-million
and $300,000. Columbia has now
passed into the hands of the nursery
men and commercial growers and
probably by next year will be avail
able for all gardens.
The contest just closed has extend
ed over a period of two years, 35 new
roses being tested to fdetermlne their
availability for outdoor culture. The
sensation of the contest was the new
rose created by Frank Howard of How
ard and Smith of Los Angeles and
named in honor of Miss Lolita Armour
of Chicago. This rose received the
only perfect mark for novelty and is
notable for its color comDinations.
The petals at their base are a deep
chrome yellow shading of at the tips
to a salmon pink, while the reflex
of the petals are a combination of
yellow, fawn and rose pink, covered
with a brilliant copper suffusion.
All roses receive three different
tests. In the first garden they are
given special care and attention to
develop them to their fullest possibil
ities. In the second garden they are
given ordinary care and treatment,
such as the average householder gives
his roses, and in the third garden,
which is far removed from the other
thev are given little care or attention
so their disease-resisting qualities can
be ascertained. During th entire
growing season from April to Novem
ber a reading is taken. 'at least once
each week every plant under test
and a record is made on the number
c.f blooms, the condition of the toll
age, the length of stem and other
Petals Counted In Tests.
At least three times during the sea
son the number of retals are counted
of a typical bloom, also a record made
of the fragrance whetner it is strong,
mild or weak, and notes made on the
size of the blooms. In addition -to
these records the judges examine the
roses several times during the season
and then in the winter mane up inei
markings from their personal obser
vatinns and the records which have
been kept. The judges do not know
the name of any rose or the person
who nroduced it, as the planting in
the test garden !s a secret, the roses
only being known by numbers until
after they nave oeen, juagea ana in

The judged for the past year were
among the best-known rosarians of
the Pacific north -est, the board being
headed by the Rev. S. S. Sulliger of
Kent, Wash., who has been a judge
for the past 12 years- at the Portland
rose show and in 1910 represented the
American Rose society at the London
show; J. V. Todd of Seattle, who is
recognized as one of the leading ama
teur rosarians of that city, and Ar
thur Bowman of Portland, who is a
commercial rosarian, having been rose
buyer for the Portland Seed company
for many years. Each judge was se
lected for his special qualifications.
The system of scoring: used was that f
originated by Dr. Robert Huey of !
Philadelphia, Georga- C. Thomas, Jr., j
of Chestnut Hill and Jesse A. Cur- ,
rey. the amateur rosarian of Portland.
The Portland rose test gardens are
located in Washington- park and are
operated under the direction cf the
city government and under the special
care and direction of City Commis
sioner S. C. Pier and Park Superin
tendent C. P. Keyser. The American
Rose society has a Portland test gar
den committee which supervises the
planting, care and scoring of the roses
and handles all-matters which affect
growers not resident of the city. This
committee is composed of Jesse A.
Currey, chairman; James B. -Forbes.

Jesse Currey, to whom the judges
gave their reports, said that "the Pa
cific coast roses gave a good account
It Is rather disappointing to us
Portland rosarians," he commented.
"that Mr. Clarke's new rose. Oregon

the original Ophelia, came within one

In July and August, when roses are
rather shy on blooming. Mr. Howard
had several other new roses under
test, but Lolita Armour outshone- all
of them, even Los Angeles, which won
such great, honors, last year in Paris.
I cannot pass over a review of the
gardens without some special mention
of the wonderful copper-colored rose.
Mrs. Dunlop Best,' from Mr. Hicks Of
England, for it is another one or
those great roses which miss first
honors by a small margin. It is of a
rich golden copper color, with a rose
pink cast, is unusually vigorous, some
of the bushes in the garden producing
as many as 124 blooms in one season.
I would also call attention to the rec
ord made by Mr. Clarke's new rose,
Mrs. Walter T. Sumner, which made
a total of 92 points and which Just
missed being among the winners. May
Martin, the new rose brought out last
year by Martin and Forbes of Port
land, received an adverse scoring be
cause it it light in petals and opens
rather quickly. May Martin is a rose
I think every one will want, because
of the great health it exhibits, being
free of mildew and other disease, and
one plant in the garden produced 155
blooms in one season, which is a
blooming record that very few Caro
line Testout. can equal.
"Of the climbers Mr. Cook's 'Bon
nie Prince" is a novelty, but it is not
a continuous bloomer, but its beauty
and fame come from its light green
foliage. Lady Hillingdon. a climb
ing variety of that famous lose, is a
good addition to the collection and is
a continuous bloomer, having been In
bloom in the test garden from Max
24 until October 23.
"You ask whakreses I would recom
mend for outdoor growing. In reply
to this, I think that any rose which
shows an averago or better of 85
points under the Portland test can bo
handled successfully in our gardens,
but if that list is too long I think
anyone who selects the roses with an
average of 90 or better is sure to
have a wonderful collection of the

Two years went by and no word

stayed by the property. His funds

He sold the new equipment at a sac
