PLUNDER IS VALUED AT $700
OLYMPIC WRESTLER WINS
Wlien Arrested by Detective Snovr
and Kerrlpran, He Admit That He
Looted Four Saloons and Seven
With 11 confessed burglaries to his
credit, Frank Bush, 45 years old, from
Beading, Pa.; Honolulu, Seattle, and sev
eral other places, was arrested last night
at Sixth and Alder streets, by Detectives
Kerrigan and Snow, and was locked up
at the police station. It Is estimated that
Bush's plunder amounts to over $700
stolen In about six weeks' time, from four
saloons and seven dwelling-houses. At
least this was all he would admit last
night, but he hinted that he may have
been In other depredations.
It Is charged that he looted these sa
loons: Emll Sprangler, Sixth and Couch
streets: the Quelle, Second and Stark
streets; a saloon at Fourth and Salmon
streets, and the Dewdrop saloon. Bast
Morrison street. It is also charged that
he robbed these dwelling-houses: D. A.
Patullo. 555 Qlisan street; W. G. McCor
znack. GS3 East Twenty-first street; W. W.
Johnson, 447 Columbia street; J. Don
ough, 229 East Sixth street; Louis Weller,
Tremont street; A. C. Bowman, 799 NIco
lal street, and Mrs. Ludwlg Levy. 3S0
Bush Invariably pursued the same meth
od In his robberies. In nearly every case
he waited until he saw the door of a
house open, before he robbed It. He had
no yearning to enter houses at night, with
his "Jimmy" to force open windows, and
Tlsk a warm welcome from a concealed
bulldog, or a shot from an Irate house
holder's revolver. He preferred to rob
in broad daylight. During the progress
of the robberies, the detectives were con
vinced that one master hand was at
work, and every morning during the
search for the mysterious burglar word
would come to the police station of an
other house robbed. Information was
simultaneously received that the bold bur
glar wis a man of about 45 years old, 5
feet 6 Inches tall, clean shaven, with a
red face, prematurely gray hair, and that
he wore spectacles. Every policeman in
the city was searching for the unknown,
but last night Detectives Kerrigan and
Snow saw the man they wanted walking
past Sixth and Alder streets. He was
told that he was under arrest, and asked
if he would go quietly to the police sta
tion. "Certainly I will," he said prompt
ly, after sizing up the physical propor
tions of the two detectives. He was hur
ried before Chief, of Police McLauchlan,
and sharply cross-examined as to his do
ings. He Is said to have made a clean
breast of the many burglaries charged
An Oregonlan reporter afterward inter
viewed Bush In his cell, and In reply to
queries he said: "What made me rob
those places? Gambling. I came to this
town from Seattle about three months
ago, with $400 in cash, and I lost every
cent in gambling-houses. Then I knew I
was up against it. I had to live some
how, and I chose the easiest way."
"That's about it. I robbed the houses
Jn the daytime, and broke into saloons at
night. There was only one place where I
had to force my way In, and that was a
house on Gllsan street. The window was
slightly broken, anyway."
"Did you use false keys in opening the
doors of the other houses?"
"No, sir!" with a snort of disdain.
"Why, the other houses were easy. All I
had to do was to watch until the people
left their outer doors open, and walk In.
Then I helped myself to what was handy.
I was actually surprised to find how many
people in this town leave their front doors
open, ready for any fellow to walk In. It
was a snap. How many houses have I
entered? Say two or three. Saloons? I
don't remember. But I'll swear I did not
rob 10 saloons. I took chances, of course,
in entering these places. A man has al
ways to be prepared for that. Drink?
No, I don't drink much. But gambling
knocked me. I don't know why I started
the business. My room was on Seventh
street, near Flanders, but I didn't have
much of my stuff there to be found by
the detectives. I generally pawned It,
k and got 'precious Httie for it, too. I did
not find much money in the houses I went
through, and if I had, I would not have
been here. Why, If I had run across
money, I would have ducked from this
The police say that Bush is a well-educated
man, and that he speaks French,
German, Spanish, Italian and English flu
ently. He told them he was a hotel cook
by occupation. In talking with the re
porter, Bush asserted that by trade he is

A monster parade, participated . In by
Frank Bayly, of San Francisco, De
feats Alex Chalmers.
Frank Bayly, of the Olympic Club,
San Francisco, champion middle-weight
wrestler of the Pacific Coast, defeated
Alex Chalmers, of the Multnomah Club,
in a wrestling match last evening.
The bouts took place In the club gym
nasium, and were witnessed by about 150
spectators. The match an first arranged
was to have been between Bayly and Ed
Johnson, of the Multnomah Club, and
champion middle-weight of the Pacific
Northwest, but owing to an unfortunate
accident In which Johnson sustained a
dislocation of the rib, Chalmers had to
Although Chalmers Is a new man at the
sport, he was chosen by the committee
because he showed up so well In the two
months he has been taking lessons. He
Lj also exceedingly strong, and had an ad
vantage in weight. Bayly weighed 15S
pounds. just Tnslde the middle weight,
while Chalmers was In the heavy-weight
class, weighing 164 pounds.
In the bouts Bayly showed considerable
science, 'which with his strength proved
too much for Chalmers. Both bouts were
short. In the first bout Chalmers made,
his best showing, and won much applause
from the spectators by crawling out or
some very tight places. Bayly worked on
the offensive almost throughout the bout,
and threw his man by a combination half
nelson and crotch hold after 6 minutes and
6 seconds of wrestling. In the-second bout,
while Chalmers did not; appear to Have as
much confidence as he displayed In the
first, he ehowed some excellent defensive
work, but was forced to yield to Bayly's
science. Bayly secured the same hold as
In the first bout, and again threw the
home man; time, 5:20.
The preliminary bout was won by John
McCalllg, who threw Alex DeFrance In
two consecutive falls. The two were a
little more evenly matched than In the
main event. Both men were about equal
in science, while McCalllg had the advan
tage In weight and strength. During the
first half of the first bout neither man was
able to get the other to the floor.
McCalllg got DeFrance to the floor after
about five minutes, and then began the
struggle. McCalllg worked hard on the
offensive, but DeFrance was equally good
on the defensive. A number of times both
men were carried off the mat and re
ceived hard bumps on the floor. After 9
minutes and 32 seconds McCalllg threw
his opponent with a lever hold. The sec
ond bout was much the same as the first,
and was won in 7:25 by McCalllg securing
a bar hold.
Both matches were refereed by "Bud"'
Smith, of Vancouver.
George Teller threw Kenneth McAlpln
In an exhibition match in the humming
One fact was brought out at this match
that Is that the wrestling mat at th&
Multnomah Club Is too small for success
ful wrestling. This was clearly shown in
the preliminary match, when both con
testants were off the mat a good port of
the time, which resulted In both receiving
some pretty hard knocks. The club mat
Is 15x10, and the regulations allow for a
mat not to exceed 24 feet square. On this
small mat. If a man were so inclined, he
could easily crawl off the mat and secure
a better position by being replaced In the
middle. The fact that the mat is so small
was the source of considerable talk last
night, and It is the opinion of many spec
tators that a new one should be secured
before any accidents happen.
ENTRIES FOR BENCH SHOW
Fine List of Trophies Attracts Local
Entries are coming In at a lively rate
for the dog show, and Secretary Peaslee
Is kept busy attending to. correspondence
and answering all sorts of inquiries, such
as. Does a dog have to have a pedigree,
or must it be registered before it can
be entered for competition? The premium
list, which can be had on application of
the secretary, answers these questions
fully, and gives a great deal of other In
formation pertaining to dog shows on
which the average individual is not con
versant. The fact is that a dog must be
Judged entirely according to Its merits,
and the Judge is presumed to have no
knowledge of the breeding whatever. It
Is not therefore absolutely necessary to
possess either a pedigree or a registration
certificate to enable a dog-owner to make
an entry, although all clubs prefer to
have these If possible, but no dog Is de
barred on account of the lack of either.
In the premium list Is printed in full the
rules of the Pacific Kennel League and
the Portland Kennel Club, which govern
all shows held by the club. Every one
intending to make entries should do so at
the earliest possible moment, as It will
greatly facilitate the work of arrange
ment, and help the committees who are
engaged in a labor of love which entails a
vast amount of hard work.
E. F. Willis will start North for the
Victoria and Seattle shows In a day or
two, and will be pleased to take care of
any animals the owners wish to send
along. Today Is the last day entries can
be made for the Victoria show.
The special prizes for the home show
comprise something like 25 sterling silver
cups, a dozen .gold and sliver medals, a
fine 4x5 tourist kodak, and 12 volumes
of Huntington's master work on "The
Show Dog." These are all In addition to
the hundreds of regular awards given by
the club, and have been donated by the
friends of the Kennel Club, and should
attract a. very large entry.
Ladles are now taking a special Inter
est in showing their pets and will add
greatly to the attractions of the show.

Senate linn Authorized Purchase of
General St. Clair's Order Book
From John T. Dolan.
The United States Senate has just
passed a bill authorizing the Secretary of
War to negotiate with John T. Dolanof
Portland, for the purchase of the orig
inal manuscript copy of the order-book
of "General Arthur St. Clair.
John T. Dolan, a barber of this city,
last Fall found among some old docu
ments belonging to his deceased father
the original manuscript copy of the order-book
of General Arthur St. Clair, for
about six or eight months of the year
1791, and ending abruptly a few days be
fore St. Clair's great defeat by the Miami
Indians under command of the famous
chief. Little Turtle, and the -Infamous
white renegade, Simon GIrty.
Mr. Dolan placed the book In the hands
of The Oregonlan for examination, and
an editorial resume of the book was pub
lished In the columns of The Oregonlan.
Mr. Dolan sent the book to the Librarian
of the Congressional Library for exami
nation, and soon received a letter from,
him saying that It was the original order
book of General St. Clair, and was miss
ing from the Library and also from the
files of the War Department.
In the confusion attending the retreat
of SL Clair's army, the books and papers
of his Adjutant-General were probably
scattered and the order-book was after
wards found by somebody who possessed
It without knowing Its value as a his
torical document. It probably passed Into
a number of hands before It came Into
Mr. Dolan's father's possession.
The Librarian of Congress offered John
T. Dolan, Its present owner, 5100 for the
little order-book. He wrote Senator
Mitchell concerning It, and Mr. Mitchell
Introduced the bill recently passed author
izing the Secretary of War to negoUate
for the purchase of the order-book, andif
the bill becomes a law Mr. Dolan will
probably obtain for his Interesting his
torical relic a respectable sum of money.
Of course such documents have, no value
nave to antiquarians who have money to
burn, or to our War Department, desir
ing to complete the original flies of old
time official military papers. The bill
provides that the Secretary of War may
expend a sum not exceeding 5500 for the
purchase of this book.

"Why Not Vivisect Babies?"
The same arguments which would lead

would lead us to vivisect ateo the inferior
human animal. A grown dog is equal In
Intellect to a child a year old; It is at
least equally susceptible to pain, and In
point of love and affection It Is much the
superior of the child. Why not vivisect
the child as well as the dog? A criminal,
though superior In Intellect to the dog. Is
not, or may not be. his superior from the
moral point of view. Why not vivisect
Jn classical times human vivisection was
practiced upon a large scale; and it would
be easy to construct a plausible argument
In favor of it. We take the life of a mur
derer; why not vivisect him? What right
has he to be exempted from torture any
more than an unoffending dumb animal,
who is equally susceptible to pain? Be
sides, It is a fact, to which attention has
often been called, that. In the interest of
medical science. It would be much more
profitable to dlfeect men alive than It Is
to dissect horses or dogs alive. In other
words. It would "pay" better. The vivi
section of dumb animals is defended on
the ground that it "pays." and it is hard
to see why the vivisecting of criminals
could not be defended n the same ground.
Shall not one criminal be put to torture. If

Irving: at Princeton.
''The fact that Henry Irving was asked
to deliver one of the Trask lectures at
Princeton Is more significant of a change
of attitude toward the stage and actors
than was the conferring of knighthood
upon him In his own country. Princeton
is the very center and heart of Presby
terian conservatism. No man who had

to lecture there, and no actor would have j
been Invited until the barriers of Puritan
prejudice against the theater had been
broken down. Under those circumstances
it is rather unfortunate that the great
actor should have donned his robes as a
doctor of letters, the degree conferred up
on him by Cambridge, to discuss so trite
and foolish a thing as the Baconian -theory
of the authorship of Shakespeare s
plays. Irvlng's refutation of that absurd
notion is convincing enough, but surely
no body of students In any university
stood In need of such elementary Instruc
tions In literary criticism. Irving Is capa
ble of so much better things that It Is a
pity that Princeton did not get his re
markable, original and scholarly mind at
Its best. His appearance at the univer
sity however, is an evidence that the
prejudice against the stage as a career
for men of education and training Is
breaking down in this country, as it has
done to a considerable extent in England
already. It Is not uncommon to find In
English companies that visit this country
university men playing small parts and
looking forward to making a place for
themselves. Probably the American press
agent would still think it incumbent upon
him to exploit the fact that his company
had a Princeton or Harvard honor man
in Its ranks, If he knew It. But there was
a time, not so long ago, when the ap
pearance of an actor at Princeton would
have evoked a protect of considerable
vigor. Today, Irvlng's lecture Is a mere
commonplace of newfa. The world do
move, and the stage and the universities
move with it, not to the west.
