Waiting Somewhere in Oregon for Himself
and Relatives Left by Grandfather,
After the lapse of 68 years Prosper
Picard has coma to Portland to begin
an active legal campaign- in the interest
of himself and his five brothers and four
sisters for the recovery of an estate
tha value of which, it is believed, will
approximate 11,500.000. : Accompanied by
Attorney Iaaae Swett, who has been re
tained as counsel, Picard went to the
county courthouse yesterday and mad a
brief Investigation looking to the estab
lishment of tha claims of himself and
his relatives as the heirs of the estate.
In a few days the work of going through
the oldest records in the office of the
county clerk will begin. The lawyer is
confronted with a herculean task be
fore the preliminary seeps in the .matter
can be taken.
Just what the estate consists of and
in what condition it is now, after the
flight of so many years, are knotty prop
ositions. In fact Picard himself is un
able to give anything resembling definite
information, though he - thinks he will
be familiar with. the facts In a general
way in a week or two.
'My five brothers, my four sisters
and myself were all born In Marlon
county, this state," Bald Picard. "Our
parents have been jead for years, and
ior a long time we nave an Deen living
near Pendleton. My father and mother
cam from Canada, though I do not
know the exact lotton. I believe It
was some place In the eastern provinces.
We are. of French stock, as the oiame
"Many years ago a grandfather came
out to this country - and located. lie
afterward died and the news was re
ceived by his relatives, tjiough none
knew he was possessed of an estate. I
have heard his name spoken of often.
About, a week ago I learned that' he
died while. In possession of property
worth more than 11,600,000. Whether
this property is located In Portland or
not I have not yet discovered,, hut this
much has been learned: Portland Is .the
place where he died, and he was burled
at the old Catholic mission. Fifty-eight
years Is a long time, and a great deal
has to be learned before we know jusc
where we stand. There is no question
that my grandfather died In .Portland
and that he left a big estate. What It
consists of and where it Is located re
main to be learned. - -
"As soon as we become possessed of
the proper Information we shall go Into
court and endeavor to get affairs satis
factorily settled and the heirs placed
In possession of their rights."
CAKE STILL GIVEN
Once upon a time William M. Cake,
Jr., was elected Judge of the county of
Multnomah. lie was looked upon as a
good lawyer and it Is commonly ad
mitted that he made a good judge. But
it came to pass that he was retired to
private practice and the electors chose
L. R. Webster to occupy the bench. To
all but one corporation William Cake,
Jr., as judge, is but a memory. To the
Pacific Telephone tc Telegraph com
pany he is still a living sentient being
as judge, full panoplied in the Insignia
of office and vigorous In the untram
meled exercise of his functions.
When William M. Cake, Jr. was elected
judge the following Item was inserted
in the local telephone directory under
the head of "County of Multnomah:
"Judge's office, W. M Cake, courthouse.
Main 862." The item was kept In the
directory during his Incumbency; it wan
kept in the directory after, his retire
ment to private practice; It Is yet in the
directory. In the expressive vernacular
of the street Arab, the company "has
turned Webster down cold." Not for
him la the glory of shining on the tele
phone directory page as judge under the
head of "County of Multnomah;" not
for him is the dulcet tone of the pretty
woman ns ' 'she calls up the county
judge's office. So far as that telephone
directory is concerned, the name of
Lionel of the tribe of Webster might as
well be Mudovlch or Dlnnlski.
Many moons grew full and then waned
to crescent form and spilled the most
of their radiance out into the cold, fath
omless abysses of ether after Judge)
Webster took the bench before he ca
tered a protest. It went unheeded, and
the next directory proceeded o hold
William M. Cake, Jr., On the bench
with a half-Nelson typographical grip.
For four successive periods of six
months, each marking the gala occasion
when a new telephone directory was Is
sued, has the court returned to the fray
with the comnanv in Its effort to deoosa
hcake from his 'telephonic throne. All In
A few days ago the county court room
was filled with an atmosphere of happi
ness. "Peace on earth, good will to
ward men," was the motto painted on
the wall by a stray sunbeam trickling
through the clouds. Explanation: a new
telephone directory was about to .be is
sued. But the judge "called up," and tho
judge dropped down. The manuscript of
the next directory had already been
sent to San Francisco. Cake still Is
county judge in the directory, and will
be for six months hence. Now the court
room is, gloomy. For six months more
Jay Upton, the clerk, will have to explain
that Judge William M. Cake, Jr.,, ha
law offices outside the courthouse'.

In the festivities.
The president. Mrs. Rose Hoyt will

securing competent Judges as well as
for completing a prem"um list. Many
' lovers of roses have Joined the society
. since the last meeting.
IN ADDED VALUE
Quite a discussion has been held lately
among real estate dealers over the ad
visability . of signing remonstrances
1 against street Improvements. Tha opin
ion among the dealers seems to be that
-the better an Improvement is In front
of a piece of property the more valuable
the place becomes and the readier a mar
ket can be found for It
"We have never signed a remon
strance against a street Improvement,"
says Russell & Blytb, "and we don'tmean
to. What is the use of fighting an im
provement when it makes your property
far more valuable than the costT We
believe in street improvements and think
that the better you make a city's streets
the easier you make it to sell property.
A piece of property on an improved street
will Sell for a far greater sum than
one on a thoroughfare that is hardly
passable, and the sum obtained Is, In
moKt cases, more than double what the
improvement costs." ' '
