Jurors in Judge Cleland's court found
themselves this morning. They were
Informed as to the merits of the case,
the contentions of both parties, and then
aaked to decide whether or not the plain
tin could prosecute his case. The at
torneys admitted that It looked very
much like a question at law for the
court to decide, but insisted upon a Jury.
The result waa that the evidence was
turned around, the defendant was made
the plaintiff and the plaintiff the defend
ant, and to all purposes the Jury took
the place of the Judge and the Judge
acted as the Jury.
The case was an action In which J.
B. Bridges sought to recover 14.411 from
Robert Wakefield, alleging that the
money was due him for services ren
dered In building the Portland drydocks.
The question to be decided as stated
to the Jury was: Can the pendency of

NEMESIS ON TOE
If Present Laws Can't Stop Pool
selling, Legislature Will En
act Statutes that Can.
BILL IN PREPARATION HAS
THIS OBJECT IN VIEW
Judge McGinn States Positively
that Queer Class Shall Not
Rob Fair Vision.
"If we don't catch these fellows now,
we will get them later on. They will
not operate during the Lewis and Clark
fair, that Is certain," said Attorney
Henry A. McOlnn, referring to the pool
room gambling cases. "A bill Is being
prepared which will be presented to the
legislature as soon as It meets, dealing
dlrecUy with this form of gambling.
This bill will put poolrooms out of
business for good and all. And It will
be passed without any trouble."
The advisability of securing legisla
tive enactment against pool-selling has
been apparent to those Interested In
closing gambling ever since the cru
sade began. The statute as It now
standa la admittedly weak. There Is no
direct reference to pool-selling .In the
criminal code. Section 1044, prohibit
ing gambling, namee faro, monte, rou
lette, rouge et noir, lanaquenet, rondo,
twenty-one, poker, draw poker, brag,
bluff, thaw, "and any banking game
played with cards, dice or any other de
vice." These are all prohibited, but no
where Is pool-selling mentioned. Other
sections prohibit lotteries, nickel-In-the-slot
machines and prise fights. The only
section of the code which the attorneys
say would cover the case Is the one
under which M. O. Neess was Indicted,
section 1110, which reada as follows:
"If any person shall wilfully and
wrongfully commit any act which gross
ly disturbs the public peace or health,
or which openly outrages the public de
cency, and Is Injurious to publto morals,
such person. If no punishment Is pre
scribed therefor by this code, upon con
vlotion thereof, shall be punished by
Imprisonment In the county Jail not less
than one month nor more than six
months, or by fine not less than $60 nor
more than 1200."
Whether or not conducting a poolroom
la in violation of thla section of the
code has never been eettled by the
courts of Oregon. Judge George of the
circuit court will be the first man to
pass upon It when he gives his de
cision on the demurrer to the M. O.
Nease indictment, which was argued be
fore him last Tuesday.
WANT HELP TO PUT MEN
ON THE STRAIGHT PATH
Prisoners' Aid Society Appeals to
the Charitable in Behalf
of Worthy Object.
Portland. Dec. IS. To the Editor of
The Journal The Oregon Prisoners' Aid
society finds It necessary to make a di
rect appeal to the public for funds to
carry on lta work. The sum of 1141
will be neceesary to provide for the ex
penses of the society until March, 1006.
With the winter before us, and the
usual scarcity of work at this season of
the year, the organisation feels Justified
In asking for aid. When It Is remem
bered that each man discharged from
the prison receives. In addition to a suit
of clothes, but $1 In cash, every thought
ful person will readily understand the
necessity for some help to tide over the
time between release and finding work.
Unless the man walks to Portland, after
paying his railroad fare, such a small
sum Is left that unless he finds work
immediately, or Is sssiated by the so
ciety, he quickly drifte back into ha mis
of the police.
The Oregon Prisoners' Aid society as
sists the released prisoner to regain his
place in "society by financial help In the
way of lodging, board, clothing, tools
transportation, and by counsel and en
couragement. A man who has been In
prison for any length of time Is, upon
his discharge, helpless and bewildered
out of touch with the busy world about
him. The society feels that It la
cheaper to care for the man until his
readjustment la accomplished than it ia
to Indifferently hold aloof and let the
man slip back into evil ways. It Is esti
mated by criminologists that the arrest.
trial and Imprisonment of the average
criminal coats society 11,000. This sum
Is about four times as much as is re
quired to maintain the work of our so
ciety for one year.
In addition to helping the discharged
man, the eoclety maintains a superin
tendent who in the prison keeps In con
stant touch with the men and through
this personal relation la able to deter
mine who la sincere In his desire to re
form. E. W. St. Pierre, who has been
the superintendent since the organiza
tion of the eoclety. la a man peculiarly
fitted for this work, and through the
courtesy of the officers of the prison
has access to the men at all times.
The society Is strongly indorsed by
Governor Chamberlain and has as mem
bers of Its executive board J. D. Lee,
former superintendent of the prison;
Judge Bears of the circuit court, and
Judge Hogue of the municipal court.
Through Its committees It keeps in
touch with modern legislation and bills
are being prepared looking towards a
more humane system or dealing witn
our criminal population. The commit
tee on Indeterminate sentence and parole
law consists of Dr. 8. 8. Wise, J. N.
Strong, Judge Sears, J. D. Lee and C W.
Jonee, superintendent at the prison.
The committee on Juvenile court law
Is composed of Judge Hogue, W. T.
Gardiner and Mrs B. H. Trumbull.
The society must have 1141 for Its
work between now and March, 1101. The

Uniform Prices at Columbia.
There will be no more extra priced

H. Ballard, manager, announced from
the stage both Sunday afternoon and
evening that on and after Monday the
price of all seata on the parquet floor
at the Columbia will be made uniform.
10 centa for evening and 21 centa for
matinee. The procenlum boxes only will
be l evenings and 10 centa matinee.
The extra price heretofore charged for
logo seats will be done away with, and a
return to the original poltcy of the
theatre made, which was to charge a
uniform price for all seats on the par
quet floor, and there Is not a poor aeat
In the house. The change permits hun
dreds of patrons to return to their old
seats from which they had been obliged
to move because of the sdvancu In price.
"The Prdlgal Daughter" runs all week.
Something New at the Arcade.
There la a continual popular clamor
for something new In the vaudeville
line, and the Rennee family, a troupe
of five performers, certainly presents it
to the public at the Arcade theatre this
week. The troupe Includes three little
children, aged I, 4 and I, respectively,
and the performers appear In turn as
Swiss warblers, a family of Hebrews
and a family of atreet beggars, and con
clude their sensationally clever turn
with a camp scene. Including the three
youngest rough riders In the world. The
banjo playing of Rolands and Wilson is
unother feature of the program. These
performers produoe any kind of music
from ragtime to opera on the Instrument
that la so close to the heart of the min
strel. Dell and Monitor, pretty girls,
are very entertaining In a aoubrette
turn. Oenevleve Ardell slnga the fa
mous ballad "The Man Outside." The
bioscope shows some Interesting pictures
of a torpedo boat. The new bag-punching
act of Aumann Introduces 'a novel
feature where he beats a tattoo on four
bags at once. Perhaps the most strik
ing Incident, however, of the whole pro
gram la the begging scene of the Ren
nee family. At four of the five per
formances yesterday thla act waa so
realistic that gallant young men In the
audience showered nickels on Madam
Rennee when ahe appealed to the audi
ence for funds.
Many Hits at the Star.
Every act Is a pronounced hit at the
Star theatre this week. The program
contains at least four features which
are remarkable for their originality and
entertaining qualities. Two whirl
wind dancers from Turin, Italy, nnder
the stage name of the Molaaaos. present
some cyclonic waltzes never before seen
In Portland. The costume of the girl
la one of the most marvelously wrought
creatlona which ever came from the
handa of a costumer.
Blmm Bomm Brr is the sensational
title of three sensational performers
who Introduce a stand of whirling discs,
of which they are the originators, and
which forms one of the most charming
stage scenes imaginable. All three are
clever cornetlsts and their imitation of
the little German band and the bagpipes
brou it tit down the house.
A wee tot, the youngest member of
the Four Close Bros., wins Instant favor
by climbing to a dlssy height or a col
umn made by his three brothers stand
ing on each others' shoulders, and then
falling from there to tne grouna.
Maude Still, a pretty girl with pretty
songs and active feet, sings ragtime
melodies. While the songs are goon,
the little dancing between the verses
captured the house last night. Illus
trated songs and the projectoscope con
clude the program.
The Grand's Head Line Bil.
No more well pleased audiences ever
attended a theatre than enjoyed the
performances at the Grand theatre yes
terday. The program Is positively the
greatest ever seen in this city and every
number Is so strong that It Is difficult
to particularise. The Cliffords in their
French Imported act with countless
swords thrilled the people and held
everybody spellbound. The Slartels of
fered work on the bicycle never before
seen In this city and secured a perfect
ovation. Berger brothers, equilibrists
and acrobatic marvels, proved their right
to the title by aatontshlng feats of agil
ity and strength. O'Brien and West In
parodies on current events made every
body laugh, as did Wills and Collins
with a A Day In Madrid, a very runny
travesty on the classic play of "Pygma-
Uan and Galatea." Smith and Cheater
aang three very fetching excerpts from
grand operas and Alf Bonner touched
every heart by his rendition of a beauti
ful song, "Down at the Baby Store."
Moving pictures of more than ususl
merit were displayed by the grandl-
scope. The most amusing picture Is
that of a little chap who haa two baby
aweethearts, and he finds himself In
the predicament of having to bestow his
affections on both at the same time.
Gfeat Bill at Baker.
It has been said that some vaudeville
houses open up with a big show snd
then out down the bill ss the week rolls
by. Such Is not the case with the Baker.
Every act Is a topllner. The first place
on the bill has been rightfully given
to the Three Rexclnos. who are wonders
in aorobatlc and Roman ladder act.
Every move by these athletes Is new,
novel and startling. E. T. Appleby Is
the best banjo soloist ever heard here.
Bell and Thornton give something new
in a sketch called the "Modern Tele
phone." Their act Is clever and greatly
amuses. Raymond O. Baldwin sings
delightfully snd his Illustrated pictures
are good. Jenkins and O'Neal, as the
American philosophers and the German
emigrants, are good. Their Jokes sre
new and their dancing novel. Probably
next to the opening act on the bill Har
rison Bros. In their laughable sketch,
entitled "The Matrimonial Agency," Is
the best. At any rate It ejot a generous
share of applauding and a continuous
laugh. The btograph In new pictures
concluded the performance, which is the
best yet seen at the Baker.
Johanna Gadaki's Career.
Mme. Oadakl, who la making her first
concert tour In America this season,
made her operatic debut in Berlin when
she was 17, and her success with man
agement and public waa so Immediate
and remarkable that she was re-engaged
for the succeeding four rears there.
During that prlod she sang leading parte
In all the standard operas. Besides her
Berlin engagement Mme. Oadakl waa
one of the star eololets at Covent Oar
den for three years, and at Bayreuth.
Since llll she has sung in opera In
America with the Metropolitan Opera

Clever Bill at Lyric.
The usual high standard Is main
tained at the Lyric In presenting the
new bill this week. De Voe, the tramp
comedy Juggler and acrobat, is st the
top, and deserves to be. Murray Hill
Is a spicy monologlst and geta the
laughs and applause. Miss Jennie De
Weese Is a clever banjo soloist and wins
merited approval. Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
Martin In a sketch gives ths worth of
all you pay to see the entire bill. John
