from Main Street Toward the Court House
Pleaded Guilty to Obtaining Money
From Pendleton People Under
Three and one-half years in the
penitentiary, was the sentence im
posed this afternoon on G. M. Sher
wood, alias Captain McCook, who is
so well known in Pendleton, espoc-
lay by some of the cx-army people
After declaring that he was not the
man who obtained money under false
pretenses while making a brief so
journ in Pendleton last June, and
sticking to the story that he was
never in Pendleton since his arrest
three weeks ago, Sherwood, alias Mo
Cook, weakened this afternoon when
he was taken before Judge Ellis and
said that he was the notorious "cap
tain" and army officer who "skinned"
some of the business men of Pendle
ton out of something like $C00. He
gave as his excuse that he got to
drinking and that he went wrong and
was. led to commit the crimes he did
because of drink. Although ho had
obtained $600 from different persons,
there was only one charge against
him. That was for obtaining money
under false pretenses in getting the
Van Dran Brothers, proprietors of
Hotel Pendleton, to cash a check for
$50. When this check was presented
at the bank the next day it was learn
ed that Captain McCook's checks
were valueless. A warrant was sworn
out by the Van Dran Brothers, but
the wily captain had fled. Ho got
too brave, however, and came back
too close to where he committed the
crime. Three weeks ago he was seen
and identified in Portland. Immedi
ately a detective was placed on his
tracks and he was placed uder ar
rest. The others who were "taken
in" by the captain did not appear
against him with their grievances, and
he was let off with the one charge.
After giving him a sound lecture,
the judge pronounced sentence by
saying that he was inclined to be
lienient with him, because apparent
ly he was a gentleman, and had al
lowed himself to be led wrong by
In addition to the handling of Sher
wood's case, the judge disposed of
two other criminal cases. They were
Harry Butterfield, who got two years
for obtaining goods under false pre
tense, and Calvin Lester, alias An
drew Farman, who got two and a half
years for larceny from a dwelling.
Butterfield is the young man who
forged an order on A. S. Abergast and
got a saddle and pair of chaparejos
with it, from J. W. Crawford, the
harness man. Following is the order:
Ukiah, Ore., March 9,1902.
Dear Sir: Please let bearer (Mr.
J. E. Smith) have a sadde and pair
of chaps and I will be in and settle
for them in a few days, and oblige
Asa S. Abergast, Ukiah, Ore.
Butterfield pleaded gulty to the
charge and gave as an excuse that he
was drinking when he forged the or
der. He evidently did not realize the
enormity of his crime, for when the
judge passed the sentence that he
should be confined in the stale peni
tentiary for the term of two years, he
staggered anu naci to support lumseir
by a chair.
The charge against Calvin Lester,
alias Andrew Farman, was for break
ing into the dwelling of Elmer Hale,
on the Wild Horse, on the afternoon
of the 8th inst., stealing a watch and
chain belonging to Mrs.' Hale, and
some other things. These were taken
up the road between Adams and Athe
na, where they were hid under a
bridge. Lester had joined a coupld of
other fellows who saw him put them
away and after he was arrested they
evidently took the things away, for
when the young man went with Sher
iff Blakley to get them they were
gone. He pleaded guilty and, although
he declared that it was his first of
fense, he was sentenced to two and
a half years at hard labor.
R. E. PORTER ASKS
Complains That His Wife Unjustly
Accuses Him of Wrong Conduct.
After living together 22 years, Rob
ert E. Porter and Molvlnn Porter, his
wife, havo agreed to disagree nnd this
morning a suit for dlvorco was filed
on the equity docket at the court
house by Mr. Porter.
Air. Porter is the genial storekeeper
at Meacham and Is woll known
throughout the country. In his com
plaint and request that the ever obllg.

the ties that have bound him and his
wife together these long years, ho al
leges that without any causo defend
ant has repeatedly accused him of
paying undue attention to other wo
men. The first storm that ruffled
the placid waters of Mr. nnd Mrs. Por
ter's matrimonial sea was about the
1st of January, 1900, and since thnt
time plaintiff alleges that defendant
has continually made life burdensome-
for him and that she has not only nc
cused him of being untruo to her
when they were alone under the roof
of their own homo, but has made
theso accusations before friends nnd
neighbors whlh has caused him much
chagrin and embarrassment. Not only
this, but her conduct toward him has
caused their neighbors to criticise
They continued to live together,
however, until the 13th of the present
month, when the defendant deserted
plaintiff and declared that she never
would live with him again and never
wanted to see his face.

CLARK WOOD GIVES
OUT NO MORE PHOTOS.
Proposes to Expose Not Again
Mug to Vulgar Criticism.
Clark Wood, of the Weston Leader,
thus announces his Intention to re
Prominence has Its advantages. In
a careless, unguarded moment the ed
itor of this paper permitted his pic
ture to appear In the Pendeton Tri
bune's Mid-Winter Magazine, on the
plea that it would lend eclat to that
publication. Now comes the East Or
egonlan and callously remarks that
"it makes one feel uneasy as to the
world and what dreadful things it
contains. A man never looks so fool
ish as when his picture appears In
print." No doubt Boyd will also have
some indelicate comments to make in
his usual brutal, uncouth way, and
thus seek to besmirch the laurels of
tho gentleman whoso distinction ho
envies yet cannot emulate. Tho
Leader man gave the Tribune his pic
ture solely in response to a popular
demand for the likeness that could
not bo supplied with photographs;
yet there are harrow, petty and be
nighted souls who will ascribe to us a
vanity and self-love wholly foreign to
our nature. We are sensitive to these
foul aspersions, and to such coarso
and discourteous squibs as the East
Oregonian discredited itself by print
ing. It will bo many moons yea,
cycles before our bloomin' mug is
again publicly exposed to vulgar criticism.
