00 PIGEON PA D
IN LIQUOR TAKEN
BY POLICE RAIDS
Patrolmen George W, Russell and
Frank W. Huntington divided liquor
taken on raids with Jim Marshall,
who acted as a stool pigeon in their
prohibition enforcement work, and
Russell admitted that fact to him,
according to the testimony of As
sistant United Spates Attorney A. F.
Flagel Jr., at the morning hearing
on the removal of the policemen be
fore Mayor Baker today.
"Marshall told me and others that he
had an arrangement with these officers
whereby he was permitted to take part
of the liquor obtained on raids and sell
it as compensation for his services. I
did not believe him, neither did the
other officers believe him, at the time,
but liter Russell admitted to me that
the statement of Marshall was true,"
PBACTICE IS SCORED
"I told Russell that such practice was
not legitimate, could not be tolerated by
federal officials and should not be tol
erated by city officers. - He replied that
he had taken the matter up with his
sergeant .and that official had agreed
the end warranted the means."
Flagel stated that while the actions of
Russell and Huntington could not be Jus
tified from any standpoint, he neverthe
less considered those two men as ef
ficient, trustworthy and reliable as any
member of Portland's police department.
"They have done wrong, but I believe
they have learned their lesson and will
not permit their zeal in the enforcement
of the law to tempt them to do such a
thing again," he said, "and they are very
valuable to both city, and federal courts
in the prosecution of federal prohibition
PROTECTION IS DENIED
While Russell admitted dividing the
liquor 'with. Marshall, who wanted it to
sell. Flagel insisted that both Russell
and Huntington denied Marshall, any
protection "in the event he was caught
selling the liquor."
The morning session was conducted
primarily by the attorney representing
the deposed policemen, in proving the
excellent general conduct of Huntington
and Russell. Jesse E. Flanders,, federal
prohibition enforcement officer for Ore
gon ; Special Agent W. R. Bryon of the
United States department of justice, Act
ing Lieutenant of Police H. A. Thatcher,
Sergeant W. C. Epps, J. H. Kilt, in
spector for the United States shipping
board, and other federal and city offi
cers were unanimous in declaring both
men efficient and expressed the highest
regard for their integrity.
The mayor questioned each witness
closely with regard to the practice of
police In "dividing the spoils with stool
pigeons" to enlist their aid, each in turn
emphatically stating that nothing justi
fied such practices. .

SAYS JOE WILSON
Bend, Or., Nov. 19. Mrs. A. J.
Weston, wife of the defendant in
the sensational Krug murder case on
trial in circuit court here, entered
court for1 the first timethis morn
ing. She has been suffering from a
nervous breakdown since the trial
started. Pale .and apparently still
far from well, she walked directly
to her husband, kissed him, then
quietly took her place by his side.
Joe Wilson, recalled to the stand
this afternoon, was the chief witness
for the: state. He told of having taken
from Weston's vest, shortly after
Krugs death, a note made payable to
Robert Krug by W. S. Fullerton.
Elijah Sparks and William Wilson,
both of the Sisters country, related a
conversation which they said Weston
had with them a week before the mur
der, in which he threatened Krug and
declared his Intention to geep his al
leged victim from interfering with his
own moonshining operations. The wit
nesses agreed that Weston carried a re
volver after making his statements to
Joe Wilson was the seconfmost im
portant witness so far to appear for
the state. He took the stand for the
first time Thursday afternoon.
Wilson testified that Weston, on the
evening of March 25, 1919, the day after
the alleged murder, had told him of tor
turing Krug, and failing to induce his
victim to give up his money, had killed
him and burned his cabin, watching the
fire until the walls crumbled. Weston
had later cautioned him against repeat
ing the story, threatening him with
death if he did so.
The defendant, Wilson, and George
Stillwell,- who testified Thursday morn
ing, had been making whiskey at the
Wilson sawmill near Sisters. Krug had
caught them in their illegal operations,
and Weston considered it necessary to
dispose of the man for this reason, Wil
Searching cross examination changed
the testimony of the witness in none of
iQ essentials. ,
Recalled to the stand Thursday after
noon, Stillwell stated that a short time
after the fire, Weston had shown him a
note for $300 signed by W. S. Fullerton,
and had declared that it would never be
a part of the Krug estate. Fullerton
told of giving the note to Krug, and
said tiat he had paid interest on it on
March 22. 1919. Since that time, he
testiffed. the note had not been pre
sented to -him for payment, either of
principal or interest.

Asked for 10 Days,
But Judge, Peeved,
Gave .Him Month
Georee Dixon has turned over a new
leaf. This morning, by way of variety,
he appeared in the municipal court on
a vagrancy charge instead of the usual
complaint of "drunk."
"I see you are with us again, George,"
began Judge Rossman by way of saluta
tion. "Yes, your honor," the prisoner ad
mitted with quaint good humor.
"What do you think I ought to do
with you this time?"
"About 10 days, I suppose," came the
"Think that will be sufficient? What
about 20 days?"
"Just as you like, your honor. It's all
the same to me."
But the court was thoroughly exas
perated by the utter indifference of the
old offender. George is with the city
for the next 30 days.
