PORTLAND, Ore., April 11. (Jp)
Kruest Wnterhouse, i.'8, arrested
February 7 at Kugene charged with
violation of the Mann act, was on
trial in federal court here today.
He was living with Ada llunfill, H,
of Kenton, Wash., when arrested.
Mrs. Wateruouse and Miss Btinflll
were in court.
The defense indicated In opening
argument it would seek to prove
that Mrs. Waterhouse was not the
kal wife of the defendant, due to
the alleged fact that she had an
other husband.
Ada, according to the story told
from the stand, traveled with her
family with a carnival company.
She helped her father with his con-
l cession stand and It was In On-
tarlo. Ore., that she first met
Then the Runfills settled In Ren
ton. Wash., and one day met tho
defendant In a neighboring town.
From that day on, she said, he piled
her with notes and letters and lov
ing words, asking her to elope with
him and promising to marry her.
She. knew nothing of his previous
history and finally agreed.
They drove to Vancouver, Wash.,
Where he asked her to take a
street car to Portland. Once in
Portland they met and drove to
Kugene, where they were living at
the time of the arrest.

Interest here In the Illinois primary
centered chiefly In tho efforts of
Km nk I,. Smith to win the republi

Smith's defeat was generally re
garded here as mennlng that the
republican voters had ratified the
nction of the senate In refusing him
a seut on account of contributions
made to his primary campaign two
years ago.
Unless flovernor Small appoints
