Immediately sent to the spot to try to

were discovered by Officer Jackson in a
Only One Man Knows Him.
Ever since Crowe returned to Omaha
no vera weeks ago, Chief Donahue has
had a force of officers, most of them in
citizen's clothing, seeking to capture hltri.
This task was extremely difficult, because
n.e of the officers knew Crowe, Jackson
4ing an exception. It was learned by
the police yesterday that Crowe was in
Omaha and extra efforts wore made to
locate him. Jackson and Officer Leahy
Wore sent to Lower Sixteenth street.
Where Crowe was believed to be.

.- About 11 o'clock tonight Jackson saw a
man whom he recognized as Crowe with
a companion in a saloon at Sixteenth and
Dorcas streets. He sent Leahy for ad

man himself. The men left the saloon
just as a oar carrying additional officers
came up, and Jackson started to follow
them. Seeing that they were being fol

other officers started in pursuit, joining in
the fusillade of shots being sent after the
fugitives. The latter, however, made
good a temporary escape.
Half the police force was sent to the
district In which the. shooting occurred
and was put to work to locate and arrest
the pair. This they had not been success

Jackson Sure It Was Crowe.
While the police have no positive knowl

So not hestitate to beMevo that such is
the case. Officer Jackson, who was ac

be no doubt of the identity of the man.
He, says the man recognized him, and,
realizing that he was an officer, took a
desperate change of gottlng away by
using his revolver. That the fugitive is
a desperate man there is no doubt and

capture, as well as that of his companion.
ILL INNOCENT AS BABES

Answers to Summons of. Interstate
Commission Deny Rebates Are
Given Armour Company.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. The Armour
Oar Lines Company has been granted by
the Interstate Commerce Commission an
extension until Soptember lO, In which to
JMe Its answor to the inquiry concerning
rates between refrigerator lines and rail
roads. The time in which to answer as sot orig
iR&lly expired yesterday, and the replies
which oame in were made public today.
The Southern Railway, the Atlantic Coast
14ne, the Central of Georgia, the Atchison,
Topoka & Santa Fe and the Pennsylvania
have filed their answers.
AH except the two last named declare
they are in no waj responsible for the
charges made by the Armour Car Lines,
and. although they do not publish -refrlg-iwtlon
charges, they state expressly that
their tariff rates do not Include refrigera
tion. The Santa Fe makes the same claim
concerning its business relations with the
refrigerator linos. The Santa Fe denies
that It, or any of Its agents, undertakes
the business of the refrigeration of ship
ments of fruits or vegetables, or that the
Santa Fe Refrigerator Dispatch Company
arts by or under the authority of the ro
pondent. It is set forth that the Santa
Fe Refrigerator Dispatch, which controls
the business of refrigeration on the Santa
Fe lines, has not acted for the railway in
tho application or collection of refrigerator
The road denies emphatically that by
way of rebates or other dc-ices It has
collected a lower rate or charged more
from some shippers than from others for
the refrigeration of fuits or vegetables in
transit. Refrigeration charges are not
published, says the respondent, for the
reason that it does -not engage in the
business f rofrlgeration, and that it does
not make or collect any charge therefor.

XOW OPEN TO SHIP-OWNERS
Government 'Will Let Inter-Island
Business by Contract.
WASHINGTON, Sept. G The Philip
pine Government has decided to discon
tinue the operation of the 17 coast guard
ships and turn the inter-Island water
traffic of the Government over to com
mercial lines of steamers. To accomplish
this purpose, specifications have been pre
pared and within a few days proposals
will be invited both in the Philippines and
this country, for carrying the mails and
Government passengers and supplies over
21 routes in the Islands.
This plan is practically a return to the
methods of transportation in vogue under
Spanish rule. When the United States
established civil government, the 17 coast
guardshlps were purchased and put into
commission. Previous to this, four com
mercial companies, owning lines of steam
ers, conducted the business; but since
then the Government ships. Including the
operation of several transports belonging
to the Quartermaster's Department of the
Army, have been carrying the malls and
all of the Government passengers and
Some time ago complaint was made to
the Philippine Government by the owners
of merchant steamers that their business
had been ruined through the use of Gov
ernment ships. The Civil Goi'ernor ap
pointed a committee to investigate, and
the action decided upon is in accordance
with the recommendation of this commit
tee. There is a double reason for asking
American ship-owners to enter the compe
tition for the shipping trade of the islands,
one to prevent a combination among the
commercial lines now established there
by which an exorbitant price might be se
cured for the transportation of the mails.
Government freight and passengers, and
the other to meet any possible complaint
on the part of the American ship-owners
that they had been excluded from partici
pation In this business.
The proposals are so drawn as to extend
for one year, the period in which steamers"
may be put into the trade, giving time for
the construction of light-draft steamors,
the type required in those waters.
TELEPHONES IN. RESERVES
System Will Be Used to Give Warn
ing of Forest Fires.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 6. (Special.)
For better protection of forest re
serves, the Forest Service, In co-operation
with the Weather Bureau, will
install a system of telephone lines and
stations as rapidly as possible. The
first system is being intalled on the
aig Horn forest reserve In Wyoming.
This will enable the forest rangers to
notify the Weather Department when
forest fires break out. In so large tin
area as the Big Horn reserve, whiuh
comprises 1,151. 680 acres, the value of
rapid communication is obvious. The
statement on this subject issued by
the Forestry Service says:
"It is highly important that this sys
tem of fire warning may be extended
to other reserves. The putting out of
a forest fire may often depend upon
immediate knowledge of its origin and
whereabouts, so that this new fire
alarm device ought apparently to pro
duce excellent results,"

When a Portland store is given business
that should naturally belong to New Yorkf
there must be good reason for it. In the
case we cite we think the reason may be
summed up in one word Values.
One day last week two ladies tourists
from New York City came shopping to our
"Silk Store." They both have accounts
with one of New York's largest and leading
retail silk stores. We sold them silks and
makings for three-gowns, and they assured
us they were positive they saved more than
enough to pay for the making by purchasing
here. So are we. This store does not get all
it could for a piece of silk, rather it aims to
give best possible values. Sometimes like
all stores it gives unusual bargains, of
which the following is a fair example.
