McAllister wanted the Irate witness
Instructed to answer, and Judge Kava

The lawyer said he would send for
the papers In the divorce case to show
Mrs. Campbell had sworn aha was pen
niless laat June. So he wanted to know
where she had obtained $13,000 or so to
. pay for the notes upon which she is
suing for judgment. 6he said she had
obtained $5000 from a friend, in addi

husband, but she Indignantly refused to

C. M. Idleman, also an attorney for

In trying to find out things from Mrs.

Wife of Missing Hotel Man
Throws New Light on
Mrs. Theodore Kruse, wife of tho
missing hotel man, in explaining the
statement credited to her that Mr.
Kruno's financial affairs were in very
bad shape, stated today that she did
not know Mr. Krue's real state flnan
dally, and was unable to make any
estimate of his assets, although she was
sure they must total much more than
"Surely, no bank would offer to ad
vanro $25,000 or 130,000 to a man whoso
assets were hardly more than that
amount," said Mrs. Kruse. "As far as
cash is concerned, he may not have had
any great ' amount on hand. I do not
know exactly what his llabtUtles were,
either, as 1 had never .gone Into' that
part of his affairs."
According, to the contract which cov
ered the taking over of the Carlton ho
tel, Mr. Kruse was not to make the pay
ment of 30,000 or more which would
remain on the furniture on the first of
September. He was allowed to make
this amount in 24 equal monthly pay
ments, the first to be made on the day
that the hotel was turned over to him.
The $16,00 deposit made with Gevurta
A Sons was forfeited when he failed to
appear to sign the lease on the first
of September and will remain so as far
as Kruse is concerned. Mrs. Kruse has
been given the privilege of taking over
the hotel within six months on the same
terms that It was offered to Mr. Kruse,
and the $16,000 will be applied to the
purchase price. AH that they ask is
to bo reimbursed for their expenditures
"I feel that the worry connected with
the taking over of the big hotel has
unbalanced his mind," said Mrs. Kruse,
"and that he is wandering about some
where. He may have taken a boat
from Seattle either to British Colum
bia, Alaskafc China or California. ' The
report that he was seen in a grill room
in Seattle had no foundation and was
a pure myth. I am hoping to hear from
him every day and believe he is alive."
Street Committeemen Visit Se
attle, Where System Is
Three members of the street com
mittee of the city council and City At
torney Grant have returned from a
visit to Seattle, where they went to
investigate street paving. The mem
bers of the committee were Allan R.
Joy, B. O. Rector and Mr. Magulre.
"We went to Seattle particularly to
Investigate the use of vitrified brick
paving," said Councilman Joy. "Ws
saw some of It that had been down
for 18 years, In the heart of the heavy
traffic and it seemed about as good as
new. The pavement wears smooth.
"While there we visited the big vitri
fied brick manufacturing plant which
Is said to be the largest in the world.
The plant turns out 185.000 bricks a
day. . This factory has an agency In
Portland which proposes to bid on soma
of our street paving. This Is why we
made the trip at this time.
"The first cost of vitrified brick pav
Ing Is much greater than other pave
ments, but it is claimed for It that it Is
cheaper In the long run, because it
wears so much better. The cost Is
about $3 a square yard."
Mr. Joy said the members of the
committee also Inspected Seattle's boul
evard and park systems, which, he said,
are much nicer than those of Portland.
While the members of the committee
made their trip of Inspection upon the
recommendation of the council, they
went at their own expense.
"We have a better garbage crematory
than the one at Vancouver, B. C,"
said Mayor Rushlight who returned
last night from a trip of Inspection to
the Canadian city. "Both are of the
same type, but it seemed to me that
ours Is better constructed.
"The one at Vancouver has a capac
ity of 100 tons of garbage a day, and
the superintendent claims It will con
sume more than that amount On ac
count of the cheap 'fuel there he said
the cost of operating the plant was 40
cents a ton."

Judge Gantenbcln in the circuit court

Consumers to Be ShownThat
Old Methods Have Been
Harmony between consumers and pro
ducers of dairy products will be the ob
ject of a Joint convention of the Oregon
Dairy association and the Oregon Butter
& Cheesemakers' association In Portland
In December.
This meeting will be held under the
auspices of the Portland Commercial
club, and will Include the most exten
sive competition in exhibit of pure dairy
products in the history of the west. The
idea Is to show to the people of Port
land andv Oregon that old dairy methods
which consumers condemned and feared
are now tabooed, that old conditions can
never again obtain because the methods
arc changed and the producers are work
ing more cleanly nd more scientifically.
The plan was discussed In detail at a
luncheon attended by 16 leading milk
dealers and butter and cheesemakers in
the Commercial club today.
The spirit of the Joint convention, the
desirability of prixea offered and the
chronicling of tin l.ew era In dairy oper
ation are together expected to make the
meeting most Important in Oregon dairy
annals. The list of prises and those
who offer them are Included In the fol
lowing list:

Will Not Pay Any Attention to

Should Help Rather Than
"Knock," Avers Executive.
When Mayor Rushlight returned to
his office In the city hall this morn
ing, after an absence of three days, a
crowd of people was in his outer office
awaiting his arrival. Among them was
Acting Mayor George Baker, president
of the council.
"Good morning," said Mayor Rush

"Good morning," Mr. Mayor," said
Councilman Baker. "A preacher la in

A broad smile spread over Mayor
Rushlight's face before he replied, say
ing: "Tou are a great mayor for me
to leave at the head of the city, .caus
ing people to begin to talk 'recall' with
in $4 hours."
By the hearty laugh that followed
it did not seem that the suggestion of
invoking the recall against Mayor Rush
light, made by Rev. W. B, Hinson in
his sermon at the White Temple Sunday
evening, was worrying the mayor very

Rushlight said to a Journal reporter.

"The Commercial club of Portland Is
spending thousands upon thousands of
dollars for the promotion and the de
velopment of our city and state.
"If this letter Rev. Mr. Hinson refers
to In his sermon Is discouraging peo
ple from coming to Portland. It is his
duty as a good citizen to take the let

with the executive head of the city gov

In the letter are facta or not before
throwing them out broadcast to be
copied in all the newspapers of the coun
try, casting disgrace on the city.
"If it is his desire to have good
government It Is his duty to assist, the
administration to enforce the laws, and
not be sending out broadcast the state
ment that Portland Is loose and open to
the admission of criminals and people
of questionable character, causing,
through such false statements, an In

Inability to enforce the laws.
"It Is very hard for the administra

needed in the cases referred to owing
to the fact the average Information we
receive Is given by people In a laxative
way. When we request' them to pre

Governor. Keeps Thinking of
Famous Poem, Then When
the Little Daughter Pleads,
He Just Gives In.
(Balem Bureau of The Journal.)
Salem, Or., Sept. B. Governor West
this afternoon explained his commuta
tion of Jesse Webb's sentence. He said:
"While I am opposed to capital pun
ishment, I would nevertheless have let
Webb hang had it not been for the
pleadings of his wife and little daugh
ter.. The -many letters and petitions I
received did not Influence me In the
least, but I could not get away from
the pleadings of bis little. girl. Every
time I would look at my own little girl
I would wonder what she would think of
me If I should permit the other little
girl's father to be.choked to death, sim
ply to satisfy la few people who hap
pened to be a little bloodthirsty. In
addition to this spectacle of the wife
and daughter, the thought of the bang
ing would bring to my mind those two
little poems from 8ongs of the Boll,'
by Frank I Stanton, The Tragedy,' and
They've Hung Bill Jones." "

difficulties caused by the Lyle lown
slte people. The Northwestern com

recently for hauling material to the dam
site on Indian lands adjoining what was

the Klickitat county superior court,
which meets on September 12, at Gol
dendale, as to the rights of this com
pany to locate the flume line necessary
to connect the dam and power house
should be adverse or result in further
