CASHIER MORRIS WANTS
TO FORGET ABOUT LOANS
Bays Golden Eagle Overdraft of $100,000 Was Charged
; : Off Books and That He Was Not Interested
; in Store No Use Discussing Others.
: W. Cooper Morris, cashier of the de
funct Oregon Trust Savings bank,
rbose name has been linked with the
Unbusinesslike loans made by. that in
stitution, denied most positively that
ke ever had any personal Interest either
In the Oolden Eagle department store,
the Order of Washington, the Pullman
Auto company or any of the other firms
which are now Indebted to the bank
through loana or overdrafts.
Mr. Morris returned thle morning
from Medford, where he haa been for
the past few days, and this afternoon
discussed the rumors which have been
circulated about him during bis ab-
"t1i1b Is a very delicate matter," he
tated in beginning the conversation,
"and I do not know Just how to go at
It I have taken the attitude from the
first that I did not want to get Into
any .controversy with anyone, and I
believe that the man who is last out
of the wash will be Just as clean as the
first If. however, you deelre to ask
any questions I will do my best to
answer them." 1
- ot Interested la atsore.
' "WelL thon." he was Baked, "can you
explain bow the Oolden Kagle was al
lowed to run its overdraft up to more
than $100,000 without It being called to
account? There haa been a good deal
of discussion concerning such a large
overdraft and It haa been aald that you
were interested i In the Institution in
some war." ' .
"There is one thing that I will say
nd that positively." said Mr. Morris,
"I was not Interested In the Oolden
Eagle or in any of the ventures with
which my name has been linked. I did
not lend money to my friende or to
firms In which t had an Interest. I
never had a dollar in the Oolden Eagle.
I have no Indebtedness to the bank, not
a dollar. In tha receiver's list I am
i eharged with a note of IS. 700 but that
, waa simply held by me as trustee for
. "Now aa 10 the Oolden Eagle, the
amount set out In the receiver's report
Is not an asset of the bank. It waa
charged off the book some time ago
with the profits of the institution and
'all that Is held against the firm now is
secured papers If the receiver la able
to get anything out of the account the
bank Is Just that much ahead, for the
whole unsecured account totaling some
194,000 was charged to profit and loas

' "The tc count grew frftm secured

rrt of the year It waa small. While
was away I received a letter from
Mr. Moore stating that the overdraft
of the company had Increased to lill,
oo and asking me If I had made any
evransementa for It to be carried." I
answered at once that I had no arrange
ments and for Mr. Moore to go after
the money. -
"When' I returned borne the account
had been sailed la u some extent. After
you looked through the glass door of
the kitchen r asked Adame.
"They were too close together, and
I could not' have shot him without
shooting my wife. If she had been

evidently atlll suffering from the ordeal
of yesterday afternoon. Bhe gave
Reynolda' attorneys the verses she had

turned to her room. The verses, which
she called "Memories," are: . . -

ATTORNEYS CLASH AT

Necessary Secured at
Morning Session. .
(Pidfle Ceest Press Leased Wire.)
San Francisco, Sept. 10. In direct
contrast - to yesterday -proceedings- In
the trial of Tlrey L, Ford when over a
score of jurors wsre examined and ex
cused with clock like regularity, this
morning's proceedings developed two
bard-fought battles between the defense
and prosecution with honors even, each
side succeeding In securing the removal
of an objectionable Juror.

trial and Judge Lawlor severely re

Baltimore Is the only city In America
that contains a municipal conduit and

Impervious to water in time
Whether the city Is able at this time
to construct a municipal subway, for
compulsory use of which an annual
rental Is charged, depends entirely upon
the desires of the taxt
the taxpayers. It is the
plan to fix the rent tot the conduit at
such a figure that It will not only be
self-suslainlng, but that a fund can be
built up to pay off the Indebtedness.
