Frances Richardson; Clar
ence" Price, - Who'. Brought
Woman Here, Sues to Get It.
Diamonds 'and .Jewelry " said to be
. worth $2500, brought to Portland by
Frances Richardson, -notoriously, known
.In Boise, Idaho, as Agnes Bush, ,are
tho-gbject of common desire In a. con
test begun In the circuit court by ..Clar
ence Price, who alleges he loaned her
$1242 and attached the jewels to make
himself safe. -.:.
Price Is charged with kidnaping the
woman , while she was mentally de
- ranged, so he might sue her here and
, obtain possession of the Jewelry she
brought with her. These accusations
are made In a motion filed by H. B.
( Nicholas, one of the Attorneys for Ar
nold S. Graham, administrator of the
estate for Multnomah county. He asks
the court to quash the attachment The
woman left no relatives In this state,
but an J 1-year-old son, James Oliver
Smith, lives in Boise.
Alleged, Confession. -
Another feature of the case yet un
explained is a confession Frances Rich
ardson is said to have " made to some
knowledge as to the death of David
Levi, a pioneer of Boise, who was mur
dered In 1902. George Levy was con
victed of ' the murder and his friends
have believed the woman knew some
V thing that would tend to clear him." She
had quarreled with Levi shortly before
foe was kllled. A Boise attorney who
ylslted her Just before her death, has
declared she made no confession before
. the dlCd. -. ':: ... "-
Nicholas In tils petition, says Fran
ces; Richardson became ill, feeble and
deranged In mind early in May. On
May 27, she was declared an incompe
tent In the probate' court for Ada
county, Idaho, and Frank Welae ap
pointed her guardian. But in the mean
time, on May 16, Price came with her
to Portland and placed her In the Crys

Nicholas says she was brought here
by Price without her consent, which she
. was Incapable of giving. Her Jewels
.were turned over to R. .M. Tuttle. man
ager of the sanitarium, who holds them
suujcct to the order of the court,
Nicholas says ; Price had In view a
iraudulent scheme to sue the woman
when he brought her here. As a mat
. ter of fact, he declares, she owed Price
- nothing and any money differences be.

In the courts of Idaho.

with . the papers ,ln the case on her
deathbed at the sanitarium on June s.
The suit had been filed the day before
and the woman died the dav after.

"I smiled -yesterday." said Mr. Beach,
during a conversation. "I. heard that
one of the enumerators had boasted

It ridiculous to me is that ho will not

'Then another enumerator advertised
himself this week as having been the

' Goes to Sleep; Loses Leg.
fftperliil PUpttrh to T loeroal.)
..Pendleton, Or., June 17. Because he
went to sleep in the local railroad yards
with one foot r across the rail, Fred
Daughtrey, 28 years old, lost a foot.
Daughtrey and two other men wera un
loading a car of wood In the local O.
K. & N. yards. Two would engage in
unloading the car, while the third would
rest in the shade of the same car. It
was while resting- with one, foot across
the rail that a freight train bumped
Into ; the car : and forced It , across
Daughtrey's leg. ...
Building Committee of Sunny
. siib M. E. Church Cite
, .Their Grievances.-
The building committee of Sunnyslde
M. E. church has issued a long .state
ment the' effect of .which ,1s that the
hour of prayer which ended' a meeting
Monday night did not restore harmony
to the church.
"The building committee labored, to
Impress upon, the conference the fact
that stone work "cannot be paid for by
prayer alone, but in vain," reads ( the
statement In part. . : .
The building committee Includes S.
Herbert .Gordon. A. L. Fraley, G. o" Op
penlander, J. Allen Harrison, W. H. Er
vlne, J. P. Newell, G. W. Harvey, all
of whom signed the statement Issued
to the public. ' ; , '
, Portions of the statement read as fol
'"The details of the differences' be
tween the Rev. Mr. Euster and the
building committee are not of Interest
to the general public, but It may well
be asked why a pastor, who started In
a little over a year ago with the unani
mous and hearty support of his church
should. now find nearly every member
arrayed against htm. No church ever
started' on a building enterprise In a
more harmonious spirit: but the mis
leading statements made by 'the pastor
to the congregation, his foolish boast
ing of his own achievements, and his
public criticism of the work of other
church builders ..caused a . general loss
of confidence In his ability as a leader,
and alienated the ,frlends of the church
throtiabo'it the community. To this lofs
of conf SJenre the prual by the com
mittee of his book on church building
contributed not a y ttle.
lavettlg-atlu j Committee Affair. ' i
"When an attempt was made to In
volve the committee and Sunnyslde
church In a personal dispute between
Dr.' Holllngsliead, Dr. T. B. Ford and
Mr. Euster, the committee resisted It
by every means within Its power, and
appealed to the bishop for aid. For a
long time we strove to avoid publicity
In this affair, seeking to obtain relief
through the higher officers of the
church, but without avail.- In the mean
time nothing was being done to raise
money, and a financial, crisis - was -approaching.
The resources of -the congre
gation had been exhausted for the time
being, and ' exaggerated reports In the
newspapers had made It impossible to
obtain subscriptions outside. : -
"Finding that no relief was to be had
otherwise, and convinced that the situa
tion could not be made worse, the build
ing committee at last determined to ap
peal to the official board. The first re
sult was the formation of an 'investi
gating committee, chosen,' two by the
pastor, and two. by the chairman of the
building committee. These four se
lected a fifth, but a-the matter was all
new to them, the two members chosen
by the committee were not aware that
they were' selecting for the fifth man
one who had been . the confidential ad
viser of the pastor from the beginning.
The result was that every member of
the quarterly conference, as now consti
tuted, who supports the pastor, found a
place on the Investigating .committee.
Charon Will Be Bull.
"In- conclusion, we wish to say that
the new church will be built In spite of
all delays and difficulties. The build
ing committee has the support of the
great majority of the' officers and con
gregation. We stand ready to go ahead
with the church Just as fast as our
means will permit. There is no split In
the ranks of the church. No better peo
ple can be found anywhere than those
of Sunnyslde church, - We are accus
tomed to differ widely at times, but
without loss of mutual respect The
present irritation will cease as soon as
the causes are removed."

This land is easily prepared for theTjlow, being covered with a scat
