Photograph showing, from left, Fred S. Morris, an unidentified man, and Chief Deputy United States Marshal John D. Mann in Portland, possibly outside Pioneer Courthouse, on December 29, 1920. According to Journal stories published from December 27, 1920 to December 29, 1920, Fred S. Morris had been the head of the Morris Brothers investment bank; in 1919, he sold his interest to employee John L. Etheridge and others, and the bank became Morris Brothers, Inc. On December 27, 1920, the Journal reported that the bank might have a deficit of up to $1,000,000, and Etheridge, the bank president, had fled. The story reported that a warrant had been issued for Etheridge’s arrest on a charge of larceny by bailee. The story also reported that Fred S. Morris had resumed control of the bank and officials were investigating whether to revoke Etheridge’s naturalized citizenship. On December 28, 1920, the Journal reported that federal officials were investigating whether Etheridge and Morris, who stood as a witness at Etheridge’s naturalization hearing, had concealed two prison sentences. On the front page of the December 29, 1920, city edition, the Journal published a story headlined “Fred Morris In Custody For Perjury / U. S. Warrant Accuses Him of Swearing Falsely as Witness for John L. Etheridge in 1918.” Accompanying the story was a cropped version of this photograph of Morris, an unidentified man, and Marshal Mann. The photograph was published under the headline “Bond Magnate in Toils” and had the following caption: “Fred S. Morris (at left) who was taken into custody this morning by federal authorities on a charge of fraud in aiding John L. Etheridge to obtain citizenship. Picture was taken when Chief Deputy Marshal Mann (at right) escorted Morris to safety deposit box to get securities for $2000 bond required by United States Commissioner [Kenneth] Fraser.” See related image Nos. 376G0017, 376G0018, and 373G0336.
