THE OREGON . DAILY JOURNAL, PORTLAND, MONDAY EVENING; SEPTEMBER 29, ,1913. BfXBY'S LAWYER CALLS TRIAL HELLISH ATTACK , IN CLOSING ARGUMENT Cas? WilP End Tonight; Year in Jail Is Maximum Penalty for Offense, UoIte4 Pre Leased Wire.) Los Angeles, Sept 2D.i-Flood of oratory surged today abdut the box of the Jury that Is to decide whether George It Blxby, Long: Beach capitalist, la guilty of contributing- to the delinquency of Helen Barker. " Attorneys f or both sides delivered their arguments. They worked In teams, J. - XV. Bell and Asa Keyes ap-. pearing for, the state and Oscar Lawler and kecompte Davis for Blxby. - Bell assailed the carefully advanced contention of the defense that Blxby was th, Victim of a blackmailing plot. Lawler replied, attacking the character and ' veracity' of the witnesses against Blxby and eulogizing the de- - landant. i.---r - , Deris Speaks for Blxby. : 1 When Lawler had concluded, Le-,eompte Davis, once attorney for the ; McNamaras, took up- the burden for Bixby, and spent more than an hour in a patient, logical marshaling of evl. dence. Proseoutor Keyes was to follow Davis late today. ' The case probably will go to the Jury about 5 o'clock. If Blxby la convicted the maximum punishment, he can receive will be one year In Jail and H 000 fine. The district ' attorney's office has refused to state "whether he will be prosecuted on a. similar charge concerning Irene Marie Brown Levy, If ha Is acquitted on the Barket charge. -! "Foilantaropj" Denied. Bell, opening for the prosecution, derided Blxby's personal testimony that his visits to the Jonquil apartments had been ; actuated by a philanthropic motive. He declared to be preposterous Bixby's statement that he had given one girl more than $4000 to aid her to a better life. . "Gentlemen." began Bell, "we have seen the blush of shame on the face of ' his honor, the expression of consternation on the faces of the defense counsel, and the looks of horror on the visages of the witnesses at the disclosures In this case. All this was the manlfesta-i. tion f of the social conscience, slowly awakening, of which this defendant Is the victim." - Bell then launched Into an exposition of the Juvenile law, under which Blxby was Indicted. He declared that the ln-. tent of the law Is to protect until they are of proper age children who might be forced below the social level by evil Influences.' After "concluding with the epecifio statute, Bell turned to Blxby and the witnesses who appeared against him. i ' City Olrl's Testimony. '."Helen Barker told you," he said, ' "that she was Introduced to Bixby by Mrs. Josie Rosenberg, Blxby was a friend of this woman, who has con- ducted.lhree -immoral - houses In Los ' Angeles. Helen Barker lived an lm-; moral Ufa at the Jonquil, where they met ' "Esther Cochran met Blxby at the Jonquil, where she led an Immoral life. Bhe knew him as 'Jackson.' "Myrtle O'Palr met Blxby at the Jonquil, where she led an Immoral life. Bhe knew him as The Black Pearl.' "Helen Neiblas met Blxby at the Jonquil, where she led an immoral Ufa, Bhe knew him as 'King.' " At this juncture a resonant snore punctuated the prosecutor's earnest ; argument. Investigation revealed Oscar Lawler, defense attorney, with closed eyes bowing over his table. Bell, unruriiea, procreaea. . Derides Tale of Olfts. -"Blxby says he first went to see Mrs. Rosenberg at an Immoral house in 107 to help a poor, unfortunate girl," shout-"ed-th:attorneyr"Mand he sayi he gave" Mrs. Rosenberg $800, if you please, for that girl!" Bell snorted his disbelief, and strode close to the Jury box, bellowing the general question: 'Say, if you gentlemen were fojajr to help a fallen girl, would jrou'gtf-te an immoral -house and turn your charity money over to the madwnT" Bell then turned hlsAttentlon to the blackmail conspiracy jglleged by the defense, and closed wfth a demand that such a defense be Ignored and that a . verdict of guilty be returned. Cawler Quotes Bible. Lawler, waiving formalities, leaped Into the fray almost before Bell was aeated. Holy writ offered the defense attorney an opportunity, which he seised .td- chide Bell for his reference to the lives led by the girl witnesses. "To Mr. Bell, I say, in the words of the holy, man of Galilee," Lawler declaimed, " 'Judge not, that ye be not Judged.'" "in speaking of these witnesses," continued the attorney, "I shall endeavor to be charitable as Christ, who, when the woman was brought before him to be toned, said 'Let him who, Is without in among you cast the first stone.' " ':....M.v Attacks Olrl's Voracity. Lawler then attacked the veracity otM Helen Barker, accusing her of falsifying her age before the grand jury. He also attacked the character of Marie Brown-Levy, another witness, and her mothor, Mrs. Elizabeth Lacey, calling the mother" to task as follows: ?Marla Brown-Levy is the daughter, of Elizabeth Lacey, who lived side by side with her at the Jonquil; side by side with her daughter giving her body to the passion of men. Great God!" I After extolling the virtues of the defendant,' and referring to his many well-known philanthropies in southern California, Lawler closed with a plea for - hisuwlfB and -six: -children, alone oti the ranch, suffering unspeakable tortures because of the outrageous and hellish attacks being made on the head of the ; house."

OPPOSES CHANGES IN ROAD APPORTIONMENT County Commissioner Llghtner, in a report to Chairman w. W. Cotton or the highway advisory board, this morning expressed himself as opposed to any change In the present road districts and method of apportionment. The advi sory board has considered maKing changes and the matter will be taken up at a meeting of the board this afternoon. In his report Mr. Llghtner takes up the history of the present system. According; to the report prior to Jan uary 30, 1804, there were 14 road districts In Multnomah county. Under the state law one-half of the "tnoney raised In a district must be used In the district in which it was raised. At that time Portland was embraced In district 14, nd about $134,000 of the road funds had to be spent In the city, though but a few miles of county road were within its boundaries. To correct this defect 13 of the 14 dis tricts were consolidated and became dis trict No. 1. District No. 4 became district No. 2. This sytem lias been in vogue since 1904. In this manner prac tically all of Multnomah county became district No. 1 and receives the benefit of the funds raised in Portland. 6PE RECEIVES LARGE NUMBER OF PILGRIMS Rome, Sept. 29.
