Tells Why He Wants Chase
Returned to Portland.
Thinks His Bartender Can Give In
formation Tliat "Will Lead to
the Apprehension of Mur
derer of His Wife.
That Fremont R- Chane, who is held
In San Francisco on a charge of embez
zlement preferred by Kaspar Van Dran,
knows something about the mysterious
murder of Mrs. Van Dran is the firm
conviction of Kaspar Van Dran and of
the Portland detectives. The charge of
embezzlement against Chase is, in the
opinion of detectives and of Mr. Van
Dran, a matter of minor consideration
only. When Chase is brought to Fort
land, the charges of embezzlement -will
be withdrawn and he will never be
brought Into court on that charge. The
real object In bringing Chase to Port
land will be .to explain his actions be
tween S and 9:40 P. M. of the night on
which Mrs. Van Dran was murdered. In
the only interview which Kaspar Van
Dran has given he eald last night: "The
3harge of embezzlement against Chase
will stand until he can be brought to
Portland, when I will withdraw It- That
In as things stand notf, I have every
Intention of withdrawing It. Although
I am positive I have been robbed and
treated shamefully by Chase -and his
friend, Kinney, while I was In the hos
pital. I have no exact knowledge of the
amount of money and stock that was
taken by them. I have never had a set
tlement with Chase and do not know the
exact amount of money that has been
taken from me.
His Opinion of Chase.
Understand, I make no direct
eharcres that Chase poisoned my wife.
but I flrmly believe that he was indi--J
rectly Implicated. His sudden disap
pearance, coupled with the lies that
lie lias told me, and the conferences he
has held with Kinney and others who
sre known to be friendly with Joe
Young, look suspicious. I picked the
man out of the gutter and thought he
was my friend, but from recent cir
cumstances I learned that he waa
Trlcndly to Toung while professing to
me that that he was not. I have
learned that Chase, Kinney and Toung
and a bondsman who put up the money
fer Young's appearance in court met
In rooms over 'Joe Young's place, and
that there weight was brought to bear
by threats and otherwise to make
Chase leave the city. Instead of going
aponly on the steamer Spokane to San
Francisco, he bought tickets to the
leasldc on the river steamers, checked
his baggage on the steamer Spokane,
ohanged his name and took the
steamer at Astoria for San Francisco.
Chase's Kelation With Young.
"Chase's known relations with
Young, the. amount of money he is
known to have had when lie left Port
land, his fear of Young for some rea
son, and his associations with Kinney
show that he left the city, not because
lie was short In his account, but for
some other reason.
"My wife was never poisoned by
gingerale that was carried to the
husc from the saloon, nor by the gin
gerale that was carried to the house by
any one whom I know, but I believe
that the poison was substituted while
me bottles lay in the bucket. Chase,
on the afternoon of the death of my
.wife, relumed from a fishing trip with
Kinney and two women. The men
oame to the saloon and gave me a
trout. They then left the place, and,
although I expected them to return
soon, they did not appear until 9:35 or
9:45 P. M. They will have to explain
whore they were during the intermission."
Portland Detectives Arrive in San
Francisco After Bartender Ac
cused of Embezzlement.
SAX FRANCISCO, Sept 7. (Special.)
Detective Day of Portland arrived at po
lice headquarters today with a warrant
,fer Fremont Chase, who was recently
arrested on an order from the chief e
police, on the charge" of embezzlement.
Chase Is also suspected of other offenses.
Detective Vaughn went to Sacramento to
obtain the signature of the Governor to
",tho papers for Chase's extradition.
Day pays the police of Portland have
been unable to find any motive for the
.poisoning of the wife of Kaspar Van
Dran, Chase's former employer. It Is be
lieved that Chase, If he chose, could
throw considerable light on the mystery.
Chase does not Intend to go back with
out a struggle. He has employed Attor
ney W. T. Hume to look after his inter
ests and pome action will be taken when
Dotectlve Vaughn arrives with the ex
tradition papers.
Pronounce Him Well Enough to At
tend Court Sessions.
.After Drs. K. A. J. Mackenzie. George
Wilson and A. R Mackay had pronounced
Marlon R. Biggs, one of the defendants
In the land-fraud cases, in no danger of
serious consequences by attending his
trial In the Federal Court, Judge Hunt
directed that the defendant be brought
Into court forthwith In order that the
case might proceed; and after this had
beon done, the Judge made a ruling hold
ing that Juror E. Presnall. of Salem, was
Incompetent to serve as the 12th member
of the body, and excused him. "
Counsel thereupon rroceedod tn
other Jurors, with a view of completing
the venire, and finally agreed upon John
Ji. Jtjaiiey, a jnercnant or forest Grove,
and the jury -was thereupon sworn to try
the case.
It being so Jiear the hour for adjourn
ment when this had been nrr-nmnitetia
