REASON FOR LAWES
BY JOHN S. BORLAND
NEW YORK, Sept. 24. The theory that Mrs. Grace
Lawes, losing the friendship and financial assistance of Miss
Mildren Hanan, was driven to a frenzy which resulted in her
shooting the shoe man's daughter and then committing sui
cide was advanced today by John S. Borland, a central figure
in yesterday's tragedy.
Borland Dartmouth graduate, importer and friend of
both Miss Hanan and Mrs. Lawes advanced his theory only
after he had been pressed to do so by Assistant District At
torney Wilson. , ,

He asserted that the ending of

Lawes nearly "broke". He ex

for which Mrs. Lawes wrote her
regret in a letter addressed to her
sister in San Franc'.sco and found
among her possessions. Then, in

theory, came tht homicidal fren

HIS DAK SUIT
Jury Deliberates only Half
Hour Before Announc
ing Its Verdict
A verdict in favor of the defend
ant, denying the plea of Dave
Swanson for $5000 damages, was
returned early yesterday by a jury
of the circuit court after .deliber
ating for a half hour. The suit
wag brought against the defend
ant, S. W. Mayger, for alleged ma
licious prosecution rising out' of
the arrest of the plaintiff on Jan
uary 1 of this year on a warrant
sworn out by Mayger charging
the theft of two cases of eggs.
Following his arrest Swanson
was forced to spend the night in
tho county Jail and was released
the following day on the state
ment of Miss Adna Reed, a clerk
of a Portland commission house,
where the stolen goods were sold,
that Swanson was not the man
who had sold the eggs. It later
developed that Swanson was
found not guilty and Alvin Pulley
was convicted of the offense.
Swanson claimed that' because
of the publicity given the matter

women, tne cases or me staie ot
Oregon against Richard Burton,
and also against Ralph Collins,
have been postponed until the
January term of court.
In the case against Burton, the
girl involved is 15 years old, and
according to law, she must b the
complaining witness. Also ac
cording to law passed by the 1921
legislature, six of the jury, must
No Women Drawn
But since there are no women
among the jurymen drawn for
this term of court, and as the law
provides no means of getting them
on juries unless drawn, John H.
Carson, district attorney, has pe
titioned the court for a postpone
ment of the cases until women
are on the jury panel.
In the case of Ralph Collins,
the girl involved is 16 years old,
and the law requires that six wo
men must serve on the jury when
' his case is called. Here again, the
case was of necessity postponed
as no women were drawn on juries
for this term of court.
' But they will be drawn for the
term of court to be held next Jan
uary, and then the two cases may
be legally called for trial. In the
meantime, the bail of each man
has been reduced to 500, but it is
thought they will not be able to

Arguments on Demurrer
Are Long Drawn-0u
CHICAGO, Sept. 24. Argu
ments on the demuirer of the
Chicago Tribune to the $10,000,
000 libel suit filed against it by
the city of Chicago, were not com
pleted today. At the outset of
today's hearing Chester E. Cleve
land, special counsel for the city,
addressed himself to a question
asked by Judpe Fisher yesterday,
as to whether a municipal cor
poration was to be treated as a
private corporation or a govern
mental body in cases where its
general administration was af
ter ted and some of its property
rights only incidentally.
Mr. Cleveland said that the
answer to this query would come
from consideration of the nature
of the action for libel as it was
capable of enforcement by cor
porations. He argued that inas
much as a corporation has no rep
utation to sustain it could be af
fected by libel only in respect to
"Is is impossible for a city to
be bankrupt in its governmental
capacity," said Mr. Cleveland.

what they call a 'capacity rate;'!
that is a room may have a cer

certain price per person of esti

estimates that his room could
accommodate three persons then
a charge of $4.50 would be made
regardless of one, two or three
