JUDOS WILL COWSIDEB. .
Judge Hogue met a puzzling problem
this morning when' four little girls
faced him, each charged with larceny.
The matter presented such . difficulties
that the court reserved his decision until
tomorrow. . ' - ; v
The defendants were Jennie Grlock.
aged 14, her sister, Emma, only Julie
Piendl, 13 years old, and Beatrice
Plendl, two years younger. TheX.were
arrested last Thursday afternoon for
stealing a quantity of jewelry from H.
Caswell's 4eweIry store, at 60 Thirl
street. He charged the theft of three
gold rings, valued at $1:69 each, and six
stickpins.'' each' marked 25 cents.' Only
two rings were recovered. -
Mr. Cassell said the girls entered his
place of business, asking to be shown
some rings. He placed a tray on the
counter and the little ones tried them
on, One of them asked him to show
them a tray of rings from the window,
and when his back was turned some of
his jewelry disappeared and the girls
were running out of the store. ,
. The jeweler gave chase and caught
three of the girls, Patrolman Kay catch
ing Emm-GrlockTLwho,4t was-shown,
had thrown away the ting she had. Be
atrice Piendl had the other ring, ' the
third not having been' found. Patrol
man Kay .related the details of the ar
rest and said the smaller Grlock girl had
thrown the ring away.
Jennie Grlock told the court eh did
not understand the meaning of an oath,
and Judge Hogue .said he bfelieved it,
after she had testified that she knew
nothing ' about the theft. Beatrice
Piendl admitted having the ring on her
finger, but said she thought she had re
moved it before leaving the store. She
could not explain why she ran. Emma
Grlock answered the court's questions,
when coaxed by her sisters, by deny
ing all knowledge of the jewelry.
The case presented so many unusual
features that Judge Hogue decided to
take time to considerthematter. .
Desertions from the ships by appren
tice boys are very rare occurrences, but
three of them have disappeared from the
British ship Ancaias, which is about
ready to sail for the United Kingdom.
Not one of the lads is more than IS
years of age. -and their disappearance
is causing Captain Johnson, master or
the vessel, considerable anxiety.
A careful search of the boarding-
houses and other places frequented by
sailors has failed to locate the missing
youths. If they are not found in a day
or two the probabilities are the ship
will be forced to go to sea without them.
Several conclusions have been ar
rived at by those who have interested
themselves in the matter. One is that
the boys came ashore to celebrate and
havft agooillme'lbef ore l beginning th
long voyage home. Owing to the fact
that the runaways have not been seen
by those searching for. them this theory
Is not held to be very substantial.
Another explanation is that the boys
have secured more congenial employ
ment somewhere near Portland at good
.wages, and intend to start life by he
coming American citizens.
Ship apprentices, it is explained, - al
ways come from good families, and In
variably possess average common school
educations. After serving three or four
years they are given positions as offi
cers, and eventually work their way up
to commanders of vessels. In this re
spect they are entirely different from
the ordinary seamen, who drift about
from one place to another, contented to
remain at the foot of the ladder. The
boys 'from the Ancaias have been with
the ship about It months, and after
serving about that much more time
would have succeeded to good positions.
, The Ancaias will complete her cargo
today, and it was the intention to have
her leave down the river tomorrow.
Whether she will be delayed on account
of the unusual action of the appren
tices has not yet been determined. Har
bormaster Ben Blglln is hopeful of find
ing them,. : -

hall last evening and determined upon
the principal features of their report,
which will be presented for the con
sideration of the city council at to

A careful investigation leads to the
conclusion that the report will make
some pretty scathing assertions, but the
exact subjects which aroused the com
mission's displeasure are only a matter
It Is certain that several recommen

the principal one of which will insist
upon the extension of aisles through
the center of each playhouse from the

the center aisle extends to the loges
