Parents Much Grieved
Peart Anderson, 16 Years of Ase,
Runs Awav From Home With
a Man Twice Her Ase The
Officers Are Notified.
On Sunday night last County
Clerk E. J. Godman was called
to the 'phone by a Portland man
and requested not to issue a mar
riage license to a girl of 16 and a
man much older, who would prob
ably give the state of Washing
ton as his home, The girl,
whose name is Pearl Anderson,
left the home of her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. K. A. Anderson, of
487 1-2 Davis street, Portland,
last week Friday afternoon about
2 o'clock, with instructions to
get some fish at a nearby market.
Shortly after the fish arrived,
but Miss Anderson has not been
seen or heard of since. She
described as a tall blond, blue-
eyed, wears glasses and when
last seen was dressed in black
skirt, a brown feather hat and
long red coat It is safe to say
that no license will be issued
here, and should she show up at
the court house, her parents will
be notified at once.
The daily papers of Sunday

gave the girls name as i eari
Smith, but this is a mistake, as
Mr. Godman was told over the
'Dhone that her name was An
derson, not Smith.

(Special Correspondence. )
Portland, Ore., January 27.
Working in connection with sev
eral commercial bodies over the
state, and aided by individual
fruit growers, the Portland Com
mercial Club has issued a fruit
bulletin composed of four pages
of the New Year's Oregonian.
Each paper sent out bears a par
agraph, conspicuously stamped in
two pla, telling the reader
that he can buy his ticket on the
road most convenient to him at
a remarkably low colonist rate
between March 1st and April
30th. The $30 rate from the

striking feature of the stamp-of

rates from other sections. The
bulletins are prepared in advance
for the use of the agents em

James A. Hoover, who came
to Oregon in 1SS4, and has lived
near Hillsboro since that time,
committed suicide last Sunday
morning at about 8 o'clock, at
his home, 3-4 miles west of Bea
verton, on the old A. H. John
son place. Coroner Brown was
summoned Sunday morning by
Dr. Robinson of Beaverton, and
went to Beaverton on the 1:43
train. He found Hoover dead
and at once ordered an inquest,
with the following jury: David
W. Gay, L Claassen, A. A. Pike,
L. Tullock, P. Carlson and J. E.
Summers. The following evi
dence was given by Mrs. Hoover,
wife of the deceased:
She said she was the wife of
the deceased, had been married
for twenty-five years, and ha3
three children; deceased had been
well and in good health of late
and had never talked of suicide
or wanting to die. Last Monday
he left home and went to the
school house and saw his daugh
ter, Emily Hoover, who is 11
years old, and told her he was
going to Hillsboro and would not
be home that night Mrs. Hoov

that he regretted the rash act
Mrs. Hoover declared that she

Mrs. Rachel Hawthorne, of
Portland, and a large piporty
owner in this county, was picked
out for a victim in a bold hold-up
game', last Saturday afternoon,
and but for the clever work of
Detective Maher of the district
attorney's office in Portland, the
scheme would have succeeded.
As a result of Maher's work Her
man Hafner, a Swiss, aged 20.
and Leo Honsig, an Australian,
aged 28, are in jaii, ana i tamer
has made a complete confession.
Out of work, the two men schem
ed to frighten the elderly lady
into giving them the money
through the agency of the Unit
ed States mail. Two letters were
written to her informing her that
unless she immediately made ar
rangements to pay them $500 in
gold coin her life would be en
dangered. The first letter fell
into the hands of her attorney
before Mrs. Hawthorne saw it.
but the second was delivered to
the intended victim. The case
was laid before the district at
torney, who detailed Maher on
the matter. Maher arranged
with Mrs. Hawthorne to refrain
from answering the letter until
the extortionists, angered at the
delay, should attempt to com
municate with her over the tele
phone, which he believed they
would do. At the same time ho
made arrangements with the tel
ephone company to instantly in
form him of the street number
of anyone telephoning any threat
ening messages to Mrs. Haw
thorne. Outside of the telephone
office he placed a high power au

the telephone operator notified
Maher that Mrs. Hawthorne was
