' Tha commissioner slt that though a
majority.-" 'to date, do not approve mc
plan of paying for ' water quannriy in
advance, but seem, to prefer to pay by
, th month, he still sees. a way out. It
would be through the passage of an en
tbling ordinance charging water nervice,
not aeslnst the tenant "but against the
property, and billing fOr' the service

the city attorney If such an ordinance

, s Water Supply Tery Important.
'f'The supply of water Is fully as im
Bortant to nronerty as street improve
reents,' : suggested Commissioner Daly,
'Xt special Importance is the con
tinuity of service. But there Is no as
; (rurance or guarantee of continuity of
service on the part of the casual tenant
who may move in this week and nut
next" -
Commissioner Daly's attitude toward
ITater meters is of considerable signifU
eance. His estimate of economy In
metering the water supply confirms the
position of Tbe Journal on this same
matter and vindicates the campaign
undertaken to have meters installed for
... all water consumers.
Without meters individual consum
ers have an opportunity, which the
most- rigid inspection cannot correct,
of using more water than they pay for,
much i of which is wasted. Consumers

,tn fact, without water meters, the
problem of Installing larger mains to

ulation is soon; to assume serious pro
portions, ' according to the adviee of
Experts, '.
-xThe decrease of" Inspection necessary
lth metered' service would be caused
from the fact that Inspectors now spend
much of their time trying to detect
Violators of rules and discovering, leaks
which, property owners would them
eelvas take care of if a leak meant in
creased service cost ,
K "Our water service Is not on a lori-

missioner uaiy. "We cannot hope tn

she -said he made his unexpected ap
pearano in Portland and gave her
$1700, and in June of 1912 conveniently
arrived tn-tne city and handed her an.

At ho time, she declared under cross
examination, did he come . when Dr.
Howard was present, and in faqt he did
not register at any of the local hotels.
He usually remained a short time be
tween trains. ' v
She stated also that Dudamdor passed
through Portland about three weeks
ago and telephoned her. He, also sent
her a box of flowers. She said she
could not rememoer the florist. At the
time, she asserted, he said he was on
route to Tasmania-

had later separated from her parents
and since her marriage had not corre
sponded with her people because they
did not approve of the match.
In this connection and regard to
how and when she received money from
Dudamdor, she was very evasive and
the prosecution had a hard time pinning
her down to anything definite.
This afternoon Mrs. Howard was
scheduled to take the stand again, and
the prosecution Intimated it would
carry out a line of cross-examination in
n effort to show that the money, which
she testified Dudamdor so conveniently
gave her was in reality given by Mag
Rleter, who at the time was maklnif
hie home with the Howards and was a
patient of Di Howard. In this ' con
nection the plaintiffs charge that the
Howards connived to secure Rleter'a
fortune and took advantage of hla weak
mental condition to work upon hi
pursestrings. '
In an effort to prove Water was fit
mentally to make a will on March 7,
19U, four days before hls .desth. th
defense put Dr.' W. T. Williamson, a
local expert on mental diseases, on the
stand after Mrs. Howard was excused.
Qn direct examination Dr. Williamson
said he had talked to Rleter on March f
just before he made his will and he
seemed ssne.
Under cross examination Pr. William
son stated he found two groaa adhesions
on Rleter'a brain following his death. He
also admitted that he had recommended
that Rleter be sent to a sanitarium, as
the man had suffered from delusions.
In this connection the prosecution
oolnted out that Rleter In 1910 had

'That said pretended claims against

of said defendant, Oswald West, gov

his capacity as trustee of said Oregon

In this connection the history of the
