After the acquittal of Binger Hermann
In Washington last spring, air. Heney
announced nls desire to come to Port
land to prosecute the former commis

in seveNi land fraud cases but who
will be tried for his part In the Blue
Mountain conspiracy lease in which Sen
ator Pierce Mays, George Sorenson and

summer. i '
Mr. Heney did not refer In his letter
to what part ho would play in the case
of Louis B. Glass, the telephone man,
- whose trial for bribery comos up this
week in San Francisco. - It is popularly
believed that Mr. Heney will turn the
case-over to Hiram Johnson to prose
. cute,' although no such information has
been given out publicly by Mr. Heney.
If he should do this it would give him
an opportunity to make his arrival in
Portland earlier. -.
In addition to prosecuting the case
against Hermann. Mr. tieney win aiao
prosecute R. A. Booth and former United
