WITNESS SCORED IN COURT
Attorneys for Defense Merciless in
Accusing Young's Victim of
Attempt to Wreck .
After deliberating for more than
four hours, the Jury of Judge Cleland's
court returned a verdict at 7 -o'clock
last evening finding Joe Young, an
Upper "Washington-street saloonkeep
er, guilty as charged of assaulting
Kaspar Van Dran, also a saloonkeeper,
with a deadly weapon on the night of
May 2 last. The Jury tempered its
verdict by recommending the defend
ant to the court's mercy.
This brought to an end a somewhat
sensational trial, which had occunled
the court's attention for the preceding
two days. The prosecution of the
case was entrusted to Deputy District
Attorney Moser, Messrs. McGarry and
Idleman appearing in behalf of the de
fendant. The case was a clmple one as the
testimony disclosed. No denial of the
shooting was set up by Young's at
torneys, their sole effort being to Jus
tify the assault on the grounds that
Van Dran had endeavored to destroy
Young's domestic peace in various
ways, and that the outraged hus
band had taken the means of shooting
to kill In defense of his wife's honor.
Mrs. Young was the principal witness
for her husband and supported this
claim by apparently straightforward
testimony, which was no doubt suf
ciently conclusive in the minds of tho
Jury to prompt the request for Judicial
At the morning session, both Young and
Van Dran occupied the witness-box," and
told their versions of the affair.
Young was first called, and was on the
stand but a short time. He testified that
he went to Van Dran's saloon on the nijrht
in question to savo his home from ruin,
and felt Justified in shooting the man
whom he believed was alienating his
wife's affections. Young's story was well
told, and he underwent cross-examination
like a veteran.
Van Dran was the last witness, and en
tered a denial of all the allegations con
cerning his attempt to disrupt the Young
household. He was subjected to a grilling
by the defendant's attorneys such as has
seldom been witnessed in a local court
room. During the ordeal his ghastly and
twitching face, his uncertainty and con
fusion plainly showed that he suffered tor
ture. Prosecutor Moser opened the arguments,
and In a very effective speech urged the
conviction of Young. Ho was followed by
Attorneys McGarry and Idleman for the
defense, who based their case upon the
thoory -that a man might properly kill in
the defense of his wife's honor. Mr. Moser
closed in a brief talk, and the case was
given to the Jury at 2:40 In the afternon.
At 7 in the evening, when the 12 men re
turned a verdict of guilty, the defendant
Joe Young beard his fate without betray
ing the least excitement. Judge Cleland
will probably pass sentence within a few
The case has attracted wide attention,
owing to the fact that the wife of Van
Dran recently died by poisoning under
suspicious circumstances. During the
trial, however, no referenco was made to
Mrs. Van Dran's violent death.

LET GO 81 POLICE!
Chase's Companions in San
NOV CHIEF WANTS THEM
Detective Vaughn Is Ordered to
Search lo? Kenny and the Two
Women "Who Accompanied
Van Dran's Bartender.
PECULIAR INCIDENT REPORTED.
It vrax reported to the police yester
day that Fremont R. Chase, under ar
rest In San Francisco and suspected
of complicity In the murder ef Mrs.
Minnie B. Van Dran. bad made a
peculiar voluntary statement to a man
well known In Portland, shortly after ,
the commission of the crime.
The murder of Mrs. Van Dran was
accomplished by the administration of
cyanide of potassium, through the me
dium of glngerale.
Chase 1 reported to have said to a
man. whose name Is withheld by the
police, that three -women had told him
they used cyanide of potassium to
bleach their hair, using glngerale bot
tles, and afterwards throwing them
into the street. He mentioned the
name of the three women when mak
ing this alleged statement, but when
asked to repeat the names In a short
period of time, was unable to do so.
It Is said.
Detectives regard this latest Infor
mation as Important.
Owing to a mistake, made by some
one. William Kenny and the two women
who were taken into custody with Fro
mopt XL Chase In San Francisco at the
Instance of Chief of Police Gritzmacher.
were released and no one knows where
they are now.
As published in The Oregonlan Tuesday
morning. Chase was the only one of the
party of four held by the San Francisco
police. A telegram was sent to Chief of
Police Dlnan, of San Francisco, Instruct
ing him to release all the prisoners but
Chase, which was done within 25 minutes
after the arrests were made. The women,
who left Portland on tho steamer Spokane
with Chase and Kenny, called themselves
Mrs. Chase and Mrs. Kenny. The real
Mrs. Chase, however, was located In the
City View Hotel, in Portland, early Tues
day morning by Headquarters Detective
Hartman. As published yesterday, she
declares her husband innocent.
"I never sent any telegram instructing
the release of Kenny and tho women,"
said Chief of Police Gritzmacher last
night. "I guess the San Francisco police
know where they are. I presume they
did not keep them In Jail, but know where
Detective Vaughn, who went to San
Francisco to handle the case, accom
panied by an assistant. Is known to have
carried Instructions to Immediately take
up the search for Kenny and the two
women, who were released In such a
mysterious manner. Chief Gritzmacher
freely admitted Monday that he was de
lighted with the arrest of Chase, Kenny
and the two women, saying he thought
they knew something about the murder of
Mrs. Minnie B. Van Dran. He said that
Detective Vaughn would brlns: back the
entire quartet, if sufficient evidence could
be secured after Vaughn s arrival there.
Detective Vaughn reached San Fran
Cisco last night. With his assistant, he
will probably first act upon his instruc
tions to locate, if possible, Kenny and the
women, who were released by a blunder
on the part of some one. The fact that
Detective Vaughn was ordered to find
them, if possible, seems to Indicate that
Chief of Police Gritzmacher wants them

VIOLATES THE SPEED LAW
Judge Cameron Imposes $25 Pen
alty Harry E. Bowen, of tho
El Key Saloon, Is Held
to Grand Jury.
"What Is your name?" askod Police
man William Nelson of a man who but
a few minutes previously had made a
hair-raising- run south from Morrison
street on Grand avenue, at 2 A. M., re
cently In an automobile.
T"have no name," answered the man
In the automobile.
"What Is the name of your em
ployer?? politely inquired the police
"Why, "he has no name, elthor," was
the Insolent answer.
Policeman Nelson took the Imperti
nent young automobllist's number.
however, sworo to a complaint and It
-was ascertained that 'his name was A.
R. Asn. Policemen Ole Nelson and
Inskeep also caught Ash dashing- down
Washington streot on a recent evening,
and when ho appeared in court yes
terday, two charges were against him.
His defense was that he was not going
above eight miles an hour. Judge Cam
eron find him $25 on one charge, sus
pending sentence on' the other.
A young- woman who was riding
with Ash the morning- he was arrested
by Policeman William Nelson, took the
witness stand and testified that the au
tomobile was going- o fast that the
wind cut her face. She said that In
going over the Morrison-street bridge.
Ash drove tho "car" so fast that he
lost control of It once, and it banged
against tho railing, nearly wrecking
the auto. -
Another witness, a private citizen,
swore that Ash was driving- the auto
mobile so fast along- Grand avenue the
morning- in question that he could not
distinguish tho figures of four passen
gers in It. He afterwards learned they
were with Ash. Policeman William Nel
son swore that Ash went so fast his
tag number could not be seen at all.
Testimony of Policemen Inskeep and
Olo Nelson, who saw Ash dashing- along
Washington atrcet ono evening-, showed
that he -was going- so fast then that
they were unable to get his number.
Inskeep followed him a distance, and
when the automobile stopped, he se
cured the number of the tag- and caused
the arrest. Ash also refused to tell his
name to Inskeep.
Ash Is the man who, after being- ar
rested a week ago. made the bold
statement in open court that It is Im
possible for automobilists to obey the
eight-mile speed limit 'ordinance.
Whether or not the Portland Consoli
dated Railway Company owns the Morrison-street
bridge may be ascertained be
fore long in the Circuit Court, for C. Jr.
Broshey, charged with assault, and bat
tery upon J. H. Fry, yesterday was found
guilty, fined J 40 and appealed tho case.
Broshey drives a wagon for the Union
Laundry Company, and recently while,
cros-sing the Morrison -street bridge he
chose to take the space Inclosed by a high
railing, along which the tracks of the
railway company run. Fry, who is a
tender on the bridge, ordered him off, but
Broshey refused to obey. A quarrePfOl
lowed, and a fight took place between the
Broshey Is said to have beaten Fry
badly, and" was arrested. He demanded a
Jury trial, which was given him in the
Municipal Court yestreday morning. They
brought In a verdict of guilty. Judge Cam
eron imposed tho fine of $40, and Broshey
immediately gave notice of an appeal.
Brosaey's contention is that the Port
land Consolidated Hallway Company has
no legal exclusive right to the apace be
tween their tracks on tho bridge, and It
Is to determlno this point that he ap
pealed the case.
Deputy District Attorney Haney deliv
ered a "roast" before Judge Cameron yes
terday morning against people who come
Into court for purposes that ultimately
disclose absence of good faith. The Inci
dent that brought about his remarks was
in connection with tho arrest of T. M.
Kelly, upon complaint of T. A. McDougal,
charged with assault and battery, and the
arrest of McDougal, upon complaint of
Kelly, charged with assault and battery.
When the cases came on for hearing,
both defendants made it known to Mr.
Haney that they had settled matters out
of court, and wished dismissals In each
case. Then it was that Mr. Haney waxed
indignant; and raid that such persons
ought never to be accommodated by tho
officials, and In case they should secure
arrests, costs should do assessed, juage
Cameron therefore taxed each man J 2. 50.
Harry E. Bowen -was held to the grand
jury under bonds of 50 on a charge of

Unalterably opposed to Chinese, Jap

verdict of the State Federation of Xabor
at" their meeting yesterday. The theme of
Chinese exclusion occupied the attention
of the delegates during most of the day,
and many of the members spoke on the
subject which Is of vital importance to
labor, especially- on the Coast. The re
cent resolutions adopted by the Trans
Mississippi Congress and the local Cham
ber of Commerce, In which these organ
izations went on record as being In favor
of a moderation of the law, met with se

Federation, while, on the other hand, the
action of the Board of Trade, which fa
vored the continuance of the present laws,
was heartily commended.
Two resolutions dealing with the Chi
nese and Oriental immigration question
were Introduced and passed without a
dissenting- vote. It seemed to be the
unanimous sentiment of all in attendance
that the Chinese and other Oriental Im
migrants of the coolie class were a de
cided menace to the labor class ot Amer
ica, especially of the Paclnc Coast and
adjacent territory. Several strong
speeches were made by delegates as each
resolution was presented, and all were

Walter MacArthur, of San Francisco,
editor ot the Seaman's Journay was one
of the foremost exponents of the exclu

the "yellow peril" Is the principal theme
ot discussion In labor circles. California
was the first state to take the Initiative
In the movement toward securing legiala

they succeeded In securing suitable legis
lation In this cause Is a matter of history.
Labor circles all over the country are
awaiting news of the meeting of the Ore
gon Federation, according to the labor
leaders, for several organizations In dlf
ferent parts of the country have secured
a false impression as to the Paclnc
Coast's attitude on the Chinese question
through the resolution adopted at the
Trans-MIssIssIppl Congress, which was
circulated broadcast through the Eastern
States, and it is the earnest desire of the
labor leaders on the Coast to correct this

Against Japanese and Coreans.
The resolutions are as follows;
Resolution to Increase scope of present law:
Whereas, the menace of Chinese labor, now
greatly allayed by the passage and enforce
ment of the Chinese exclusion act. has been
succeeded by an evil similar In general char
acter, but much more threatening In Ita pos-
dblllties. to-wtt: the Immigration to the
United States and Its lneular territory of large
and Increasing numbers of Japanese and
Corean labor, on the grounds, first, that the
wage and living standards of such. labor are
dangerous to, and must. If granted recognl
tlon In the United State, prove destructive
ot the American standards In these essential
respects; secondly, that the racial Incompati
bility as between the peoples of the Orient and
the United Stated presents a problem of race
preservation which Is our Imperative duty to
solve In our own favor, and which can only
be thus solved by a policy ot exclusion; and
whereaa, the systematic colonization by these
Oriental races of our penlsular territory m
the Pacific and the threatened and partly
accomplished extension of that system to the
Pacific Cooet and other Western localities of
the United States, constitutes a standing dan
ger. not only to the domestic peace but to
the continuance of friendly relations between
the nations concerned; therefore be It, re
solved, by the Oregon State Federation of
Labor, that the terms of the Chinee exclu
sion act should be enlarged and extended so
as to permanently exclude from the United
States and Its Insular territory all claeees of
Japanese and Coreans, other than those ex
empted by the present act; be It further
resolved, that these resolutions be submitted,
through the proper avenues, to the Congress
of the United States, with a request for
favorable consideration and action by that
body. r .
Continue Present Iiaw.
The other resolution on this subject
was one favoring the continuance of
tho present law and reads as follows:
Whereas, the Chinese exclusion act. as now
administered, has proved to be an effectlvo
measure for protection against the competi
tion of Chinese labor, and tho consequent dan
ger to American standards of labor and liv
ing; therefore, be It
Resolved, by tho Oregon State Federation
of Labor, In annual convention assembled,
that the present Chinese exclusion act should
be retained Intact, and that no treaty should
be made between the United States and China
which tends to vitiate the terms of said act.
The secretary of the Oregon State Fed
eration ot Labor was Instructed to send a
copy of these resolutions to tho Repre
sentatives In Congress, and to submit
them through the proper channels to both
houses of the Legislature, with an urgent
appeal for favorable action.

unanimously adopted. In part contained
the following relative to ther resolution
passed at the Trans-MIsalsslppl Congress:
"The Chinese question again appears as
a cloud upon the Western horizon. What
it portends for the laboring" interests of
tho country it is difficult at this time to
predict; but profiting by past experience
it is well for ua to be on the lookout and
not be caught napping. Centering- at
Shanghai, a movement has been under

It has been successful or how great the

PROPHECY COMING TRUE
Colonel Clark E. Carr Predicted Dew
velopment of Pacific Coast Trade.
Colonel Clark B. Carr, of Galesburgv
III., accompanied by Mrs. Carr, is at tha
Portland for a -visit to the city and the
Exposition. Colonel Carr .was in Port
land Ave years ago .during the McKlnley
Boosevelt campaign, and was the orator
at the last great mass meeting- held - in
the city during that campaign. Yesterday
afternoon the visitor told of his Impres
sions after five years away from the
cities of the Northwest.
At the time of his former visit, here.
Colonej. Carr argued In his speech that
if the Eastern possession of the United
States were retained and a foothold was
gained by Anierlcan merchants In the .
Orient, the continent would change front,
as had "been the case In Europe.' Then the
cities of the Pacific Coast would become
the great cities ot the United States, and,
the tide ot commercialism and ot business
and progress would set to the Western
shores. He finds how after his compara
tively short absence that this condition
has become far more pronounced1 than h&
would have thought possible In so- short
a space of time, and therefore holds fast
to his prophecy before uttered.
Colonel and Mrs. Carr have just re
turned from a visit to Alaska, and tho
Colonel alleges that Alaska is the' most,
wonderful country In the world, and one"
which will have an unbounded develop-,
ment In the coming years. The visitors
will remain in Portland for several .days
before starting upon the return to their
