Out but 15 minutes the jury in the. j
r Allen arson case Thursday afternoon,
j on the tirst ballot, returned a verdict I
of not guilty, j
No criminal case has ever aroused a j
i greater sensation in Hood River coun- j
I ty. The defendant, kev. J. L. Allen, j
I was formerly fir two years pastor tfi
; the Haptist church, the pastorate of )
which, according to lr. Allen s testi
! mony, he resigned last fall because of
j alleged slanderous remarks of mem
; tiers of the church. A few days prior
: to his arrest Rev. Allen tiled a suit in
circuit court, asking damages from
! two aged members of his church, Mr.
and Mrs. Marshall Hill, whom he ac
cused in his complaint of circulating
stories that attacked his character.
Following the criminal proceedings.
rred Lverson, of Cortland, withdrew
from the slander case as attorney of
record. Following the jury's .verdict
Rev. Allen stated that he would pro
ceed with the civil action.
The Allen case throughout Thursday
was not. without its dramatic moments.
E. H. Hartwig, associated with J. J.
Fitzgerald, of I'ortland, in the defense
of Allen, wept as he finished an impas
sioned aipeal, while the defendant's
wife, holding in her lap one of her
three children, sobbed audibly. At
this moment the defendant held, sleep
ing in his arms, the couple's bab.wson.
The court house was crowded at all
times during the trial. The audience
was treated to a sensation Thursday
morning, when Rev. Allen being cross
examined by District Attorney Derby
was asked to explain statments made
during direct examination Wednesday
night. ttorney Fitzgerald, seeking
to establish, as he stated, that the de
fendant's lease of the Cascade Iocks
apartments, where he was accused of
having started the tire, was executed
in good faith, the defendant seeking a
(luiet place for pursuing his study of
the law, had the accused man recite
some of his former occupations. In
his story to the jury Rev. Allen stated
that he had been a silent partner in
several law firms.
Explaining to the district attorney
Rev. Allen said that his father had the
pow er of attorney in one of the largest
estates in California. In his recital
he declared that one Julius Friedman,
an old bachelor and a Russian Jew,
nad died leaving an estate valued at
$40,000,000. While not of record, Mr.
Allen stated that he had worked on
this case for law firms of New York
city, Washington, D. C, and Oakland
and San Francisco, Calif. Attorney
Derby then asked him specifically to
name the San Francisco law firm. Mr.
Allen replied that he did not know the
When asked for the name of the
Washington firm, lie replied that it
was the Russian ambassador. He ex
plained that certain formalities in the
case required the consideration and ap
proval of both the American and Rus
sian ambassadors. He stated that
Friedman left 70 heirs and that at
times as many as 12i" lawyers were en
gaged on details invoving the estate.
After the trial Rev. Allen called on
newspaper men and askfd that his val
uation of the estate he corrected to
A coincidence of the jury that tried
Rev. Allen was that four Millers sat
on the body of peers. None of them
were related. They were : Warren

Fancy Wraps Not to Be Printed
The Apple Growers Association will
break an established precedent this
season, when apples of the Red Dia
mond or second grade, will be market
ed in plain wrappers. Formely the
wrapper has borne the imprint of the
organization's copyrighted trademark
in ted ink.
The change will be made, it is said,
because of the high cost of the printed
wrappers as compared with the plain.
From the Mosier Bulletin
"It Sure Does the Work"
Changeable weather and wet feet
make March a dangerous month for
coughs, colds, croup and whooping
cough. Be prepared to get prompt re
lief. Don't let a cold run into serious
sickness. Mrs. W. H. Thornton, 3i2'.
W. 10th St., Little Hock, Ark., writes:
"My little boy had a severe attack of
croup and I honest!' believe he would
have died if it had not been for Foley's
Honey and Tar. Two doses relieved
him. I would not be without it at any
price." Sold everywhere.
For six consecutive years the present
board of directors of the Mosier Fruit j
Growers Association has served the
fruit growers of this district.'and with !
the election Saturday at the annual
meeting of the stockholders at which
!5 shares were represented, they were 1
re-elected for the fifth time, each elee-
tion yearly Leing significant by a unan
imous vote being cast. This is high
tribute to the perfect harmony among
the loo per cent co-operative organiza
tion, every grower being a member.
The board of directors include Amos
Root, president; Lee Evans; J. M.
Carroll. seretary ; C. A. McCargar ;
and Dr. A. Macrum. Mr. Root has
served as president since tie organiza
tion was founded, serving continuous
ly for 11 years. Lee Evans and J. M.
Carroll have been members for 10
years, C. A. McCargar, H years and
Dr. C. A. Macrum, ti years.
R. 1). Chattield is now finishing his
seventh year as manager, the fiscal
year ending April 1.
J. M. Carroll was manager the first
three years; 11. M. Huxley, the fol
lowing year; and R. D. Chatfiled hold
ing the office since that time.
Other growers who have served on
the board are A. P. Hateham, Fred
Evans, Ed. L. Howe, D. 1'. Harvey
and E. J. Middleswart.
W. F. G win,' vice president and gen
eral manager of the Northwestern
Fruit Exchange and H. G. Fletcher,
sales manager of that selling agency,
with which the Mosier Fruit Growers
Association is affiliated, were here
from Seattle and gave short talks to
the growers on the apple outlook for
this year.
Mr. Gwin explained how the war
embargo had affected foreign ship
ments, and told of the loss to growers
caused by car shortage, together with
the extremely cold weather last "fall.
He declared that under the Fond Ad
ministration much of this trouble will
now be eliminated.
Mr. Fletcher told the growers how
his organization had distributed Mosier
apples to many new markets in various
sections of the United States because
Nv'w York dealers had combined on a
low price at which the Exchange re
fused to sell. Therefore one or two
cars only was placed in several large
This action will force the New York
dealers to come to terms, he main
tained, as they are very desirous of
the Mosier fruit. He explained that
the action of the New York dealers is
really a blessing in disguise, for under
the "Skookum traaemark the Mosier
apples will get a country-wide reputa
tion. Following is the report of Manager
Chattield, which is incomplete, he an
nounced, because the majority of the
apple pools are not closed. He hopes
to be able to make a complete report
by April 1.

County Food Administrator Gibson
has written to all fraternal organiza
tions and other organizations of the
county asking that ail superfluous
luiiches be discontinued. His letter
follows :
"At this time of stress and crisis in
the life of our national government
the closest affiliation of organiza
tions is urgently needed.
"Fraternal organizations are in a
position to add energy to governmental
agencies and forces. Will you kindly
bring before your order the question of
eliminating all lunches and suppers
except those served during a regular
meal time and taking the place of a
regular meal during the period of the
war Will you please ask your mem
bers to discuss this and act on it as
seems best? May 1 suggest that there
are two objections to these lunches and
suppers -they result in an unnecessoy
consumption of food and they break
down saving practices in the home.
1 here is a shortage of food. In
the face of this fact we have some
hundreds of thousands of our own boys j
to feed and half the world is starving.
Any consideration of this suggestion
will be gratefully appreciated.
In the service of God and the in
terests of humanity.
Mncerely yours,
"L. B. Gibson."
A Billions Attack
When you have a billious attack your
liver fails to perform its functions.
You become constipated, 'lhe food
you eat ferments in your stomach in
stead of digesting. This 'illumes the
stomach and causes nausea, vomiting
and a terrible headache. Take Cham
berlain's Tablets. They will tone up
your liver, clean out your stomach and
you will soon be as well as ever.
They only cost quarter.
Ranchers Like Eight-Hour Law
The new eight-hour rule that went
into effect at the Dee plant of the Ore
gon Lumber Co. last week, following
the conference between Col. Disque
and northwestern loggers, is pleasing
to the ranchers of the Dee section, who
work at the mill. Numerous owners of
Dee Flat orchards have paid for their
places and their development by work
in the lumber mill. The orchardist
mill workers declare that the new rul
ing will permit them to devote several
hours a day to their farm work.
The Dee mill, now operating under
government orders, has perhaps been
freer from !. W. W. influences than
any other in the northwest.
