Detectives- Wound Es
caping Man.
Day and Weiner Fire Three
Shots; Two Take Effect
Louis Schumcr, a Giant in Stature,
!s' Captured After an Exciting
Race, in. Which He Is Se
verely Wounded.
Ixmis Schumer. a veritable giant, un
der arrest on a charge of forgery, was
ehot down by Detectives Day and
TWelner at Eighteenth and Savler
streets at 7:30 o'clock last night, -while
attempting to escape. One bullet
pierced his right leg . above the heel
and another entered the calf of the left,
shattering the bone and imbedding
itself in the flesh. He is now in Good
Samaritan Hospital, under care of As
sistant City Physician Slocum. He is
expected to recover.
It is alleged that Schumer, who is
aged 26 years, stands six feet and one
Inch in height and whose weight Is 238
pounds, passed a check for $13.50 on
W. H. Lehman, of the Pacific Hotel,
tlurlng the forenoon. It was written
on a blank of the First National Bank,
.was made payable to the order of
Schumer and was countersigned "man"
ager Star Sand Company:" "When Leh
man presented it for payment he was
informed there were no funds to
Schumer's credit.
At 7 o'clock last nignt Lehman called
at Police Headquarters and turned the
check over to Captain Moore, relating
the circumstances and adding he wished
officers to accompany him to Schumer's
home. Detectives Day and "Weiner
were assigned to the case and started
Xor Eighteenth and Raleigh streets,
-where the alleged forger lives.
Attempts to Escape Arrest.
At Eighteenth and Savier streets
Lehman saw Schumer and so informed
the- detectives. Schumer seemed to
realize he was about to be arrested
and assumed a defiant attitude.
Tou are under arrest," said Detec
tive Day, "and had better come along
without making any trouble."
"I'll not go with you until I go home
and see my wife," said Schumer, and
he started to go toward his residence.
Both Day and Weiner laid hold of
him, but he broke away and started to
Day and Weiner at first thought they
could outrun the fleeing man, and Day
got near enough one time to attempt
to strike him with a revolver. Schumer
cwsnt tmcfc his powerful hand, strik
ing Day In the side of the head and
'Quickly regaining his feet. Day called
out to Schumer to stop or be shot.
Weiner also warned him.
"You're not srame. You wouldn't
shoot anything," Schumer sang out, and
continued his pace.
"Quit running or I'll hurt you,
Schumer. Tou had better stop and
avoid trouble," was Day's final warn
ing. Two Shots Take Effect.
Still Schumer ran and became the
target for the revolvers of Day and
Weiner. Day was close on his heels,
and it Is believed- the only two shots
he fired took effect. Weiner fired once.
Schumer dropped on the sidewalk, but
never uttered a word. He was "game"
throughout the ordeal, and did not
Police Headquarters were notified
and a patrol wagon dispatched to con
"vey Schumer to Good Samaritan Hos
pital. There he was attended by Dr.
Slocum. He refused to permit the
house surgeons to attend him, as he
said he wished an Eagle to have the
When Schumer's wife was notified of
the trouble she replied that she knew
what he was shot for; that she knew
tie had been passing forged checks, and
that she Intended leaving him and go
ing to live with her parents. She re
fused to call upon him at the hospital.
It is believed by the detectives that
"developments will show Schumer to
have been engaged In the business of
passing checks for some time. His
.record will be investigated thoroughly
today. He has lived in Portland but
five weeks.
Mayor Denies Rumor That the Ax Is
About to Fall.
"I have no intention of deposing Chief
Hunt. I know of no reason why I should
. do so. My position is exactly the same as
Jt has. always been."
' The foregoing Is the statement of Mayor
Williams regarding the reported plan bf
the Mayor and police committee of the
Executive Board to put Charles H. Hunt
on the shelf for political reasons.
The rumor has been heard on the street
corners for several weeks. Members of
the police committee have vigorously de
nied it. Tho Mayor has refuted the re
port before, and did so again last even
ing. The Chief of Police has been under
an Investigation because of the charge
that he permitted certain saloons to re
main open after 1 o'clock. The verdict is
still locked in the minds of General Beebe
and Slg SIcheL of the committee. It will
probably be a declaration that Chief Hunt
is doing his duty and enrorcmg tne law.
