WILBERG LARCENY CASE IS CON
TINUEDNUMBER OF WITNESSES
HEARD -FULTON WOULD PROVE
THAT PRISONER WAS TREATED
TO SWEAT-B0X METHODS.
The trial of Robert Wilberg, charged
with larceny, wa continued in the cir
cuit court yesterday, Harrison's cross
examinatlon wa continued, but nothing
further was brought out than had been
Introduced yesterday. Grace William
testified that she saw Harrison and Wil
berg in a house on Astor street. That
Harrison having but G.V, asked Wilberg
to go to the former's room .with him
to get more money, Wilberg left with
Harrison and both returned ia about 15
minutes. This was between the hours
of 2 and 5 o'clock. After their return
Harrison remained a short time, and left
the bouse. Wllburg left about 15 min
utes latei'. Could not tell what direc
tion they went a she did not see them
again. On cross-examination she stated
that Harrison was not bruised and that
both men appeared to be friends.
Olltr Thompson testified that on the
morning of March Bth he saw Wilberg
and Harrison walking arm and arm
coining through the postoflice grounds
In the direction of Commercial St. Lat
er he saw Willerg trotting along Astor
street to Seventh. Then he saw Harri
son cross Astor street and go to Eighth
street where he stopped to talk to some
women. He then went to a Chinese
restaurant. When Thompson saw the
men it was between the hours of 4 and
5 o'clock, and Harrison was drunk.
Morris Staple testified that on the
night of .March ."th, Harri-on came to
his house to engage a room. He was
assigned to Room 2. About 3:30 or 4
o'clock he was awakened by the noise
made by the two men who were having
trouble In gaming entrance to Harn
son'a room. They, remained there about
5 minutes, About half au hour after
wards he found Harrison leaning up
against the door of his room trying to
get in. He was very drunk. He saw
Harrison again at 0:30 but was not al
lowed to answer as to conversation.
Chief Gamma! testified that lie saw-
Harrison at Staples' where he had been
called. Harrison was brought to the
police station by officer Houghton. Re
garding WillHJrg, Attorney Fulton en
deavored to show that when Wilberg
wa Liken to the police station that he
was not informed that he was under ar
rest, but had been brought there by, a
subterfuge. This brought on a lively
tile, and Fulton claimed that he would
prove that Wilberg was treated to
"sweat box" methods, and that any ad
missions, he made in the station, could
not be admitted, as they were made un
der duiVs. That anv admissions he
made, after being told that he was un
der arrest, could not go before the jury
as he had been told bv, the officers that
it would help hiiu if he would own up.
The court held this to be correct and
Chief Gainmal testified i that Wilberg
was not placed under arrest until after
the questioning was concluded. He aNo
testified that when Wilberg was search
ed, at the city prison, $183.45 in gold
silver and currency was found on him.
Ralph Chreisler, of the Skidraore Co.,
of Portland, identified Harrison as the
man who decamped with their money.
Other evidence -was introduced to show
that Wilberg had changed a $100 bill
and it is charged that this bill was part
of the stolen money. The prosecution
then rested its case, and Attorney Ful
ton filed a .motion to instruct the jury
to acquit ho prisoner. The motion was
overruled, and the defense called their
first witness. Testimony was given by
Wilborg's sister, that Wilberg had $210
iu a bank, at home, and that on the
Oth of March, he took the money away
Wilberg made the same statement, on
the stand and positively denied having
stolen any money from Harrison. The
waiter at the Waldorf testified to having
served about $130 or $140 worth of wine
and beer to Harrison, and a companion,
on the night of March 7th, and that in
payment of one of, the ordera Harrison
tendered a $100 bill, which wa changed
for Mm. Wilberg further testified that
the $100 ill that ho (Wilberg) had
changed on the oth was one he received
at the restaurant, where he ,wa$ em
ployed, by a patron, and that he had
returned change to the patron from his

ALL ABOUT THEGAME
ONLY ONE CARD OP LAWS TO BE
FOUND IN THE CITY AND THE
FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF COPY OF
SEASONS AND THE PENALTIES.
The pheasant hunting season com
menced yesterday in Clatsop county and
along with other upland birds will last
until December 1. The deer season,
which opened on September 1, will last
until November 1, and the elk season,
which opened on September 15, will last
until the same dat this month. Ducks,
geese and swans may be killed until
February 1, the season having com
menced on the first of last month.
An inquiry at the local gun shops,
and in numerous other quarters, gives
evidence that not one person in a thou
sand knows anything definite regarding
the game laws. There is one card giving
the laws in possession of the county
clerk, so when you get out a hunting
license bring along a pencil and paper
and make a copy of the laws for your
self. The fact that the district game
make this compulsory if your memory
is not something extraordinary.
For violation of the game laws the
warden does npthing to give the shoot
ing public any idea of the regulations,
penalty is from $13 to $500. The fine
for hunting without a license is $25 to
$100 and imprisonment. The following
is the number of birds or animals in
different classes which may be killed:
Ducks, not more than 50 a week.
Geese and swans, no limit.
Upland birds, not more than 10 a
Deer, not more than five, in a season.
Elk, one in a season.
The above Is given for the benefit of
the numerous hunters in Astoria and
the surrounding section, who are con
templating a shooting trip. They will
prove convenient is case of doubt and
save considerable argument
