Unable to Catch Highwaymen,
Gritzmacher Denies Their
In the Saturnalia of January Crime,
Chief of Police Loses His Head
and Declares Report of
Recent Robbery False.
WOMEN TNTHGXAXT AT TOLICE.
Dr. Katherlne C. Mwilon nnd Misa
Anna Regan, the former one of Port
land's most -widely known professional
women and the latter a student In
the medical department of the Uni
versity of Oregon, residing at 47 North
Fifteenth street, are most Indignant at
Chief of Police Gritzmacher and Cap
tain of Detectives Bruin for publicly
stating they discredit the story of the
women that they were held up and
Dr. Manlon reported In person at
Police Headquarters and told Cap
tain Bruin all of the details of the
sensational hold-up and robber)', fur
nishing him with the name of Miss
Regan and supplying all the Informa
tion at her command. -
Chief of Police Gritzmacher was
quoted as saying that the story of
the women was unreasonable, and dis
credit was thrown upon the victims of
the highway robbery.
Baffled by the continued activity of
highwaymen and all manner of crlm
Inals, unable to check the carnival of
depredations and seeking: desperately
a means of allaying public opinion.
Captain of Detectives Bruin and Act
ing: Chief of Police Gritsmacber have
begrun a system of official denials of
practically all daring; crimes and the
suppression of as many as possible.
No matter how prominent the victim
or bow highly respected In the com
munity, whether man, woman or child,
reported crimes are to be suppressed
by the police, if possible, and if this
cannot be done, the official denial will
be heralded forth to discredit the
whole matter. The inability of Cap
tain Bruin and Acting Chief Grltz
macher to control the situation Is not
to be officially acknowledged, but there
Is to be no hesitation In branding any
citizen a, deliberate falsifier who has
the hardihood to report that he or
she was held up by one of the gang of
thugs now Infesting the city without
Hardly a Day Without Hold-TJp.
Although hardly a day passes with
out at least one hold-up .story, only a
small fraction of the actual highway
robberies are reported to police head
quarters. For instance, Charles M.
A FEW JANUARY CRIMES.
Criminal activity In Portland has
continued unabated during the Winter
months. January thus far recording
the following desperate depredations:
January 1 Canteen saloon. Tenth
and Couch streets, held up and In
mates robbed of $42. No arrests.
January 2 New Vino saloon, C04
Milwaukle street, held up and Inmates
robbed of $00. No arrests.
January S Car of Portland Rail
way Company held up at Woodstock
and conductor robbed of $5. No ar
rests. January 9 Peter Zimmerman's
liquor house. SSI East Burnslde street,
held up and Inmates robbed of $30.
January 11 W. A. Cole -held up
near his home, but bravely fought off
the two masked thugs and escaped
unhurt. No arrests.
January 14 E. V. Rand held up
and robbed of $24 and watch. No
January 16 Mrs. W. S. McHugh
held up and robbed by lone man In
her own home In broad daylight.
January 10 Victoria Hotel bar
robbed of $45 by highwaymen. No
January 21 Dr. K. A. Manlon and
her companion. Miss Anna Regan,
held up and robbed by lone hlghway
,man near East Nineteenth and Di
vision streets. No arrests and police
sneer at story.
January 21 Walter Lynch held up
and robbery attempted, but he had
no cash or valuables with him.
Idleman. the well-known attorney,
suffered in this manner recently, but
am not go to tne police with his
troubles. He regarded It as useless,
and "passed up" the case without mak
ing it known to the authorities. H
was pretty roughly handled In the hold
up, and carried bruises on the face for
several days as a result of the en
counter. What Is regarded as an Insult to Dr.
Katherlne C. Manlon, one of Portland's
prominent women, and Miss Anna Re
gan, a student at the medical depart
ment of the University of Oregon, was
an Interview given out by Acting
Chief ot Police Gritzmacher, In which
h said he did not believe that the
women were held up and robbed, as
they said they were. No Investigation
of their report had been made by the
detective department yesterday, al
though they were held up and robbed
about 4 o'clock Sunday morning, while
returning from a professional call In
the suburbs. Absolutely no Investiga
tion was made of the case, but Chief
Gritzmacher officially branded their
report as false.
Indignant at Gritzmacher.
While neither of the victims would
consent to mako a statement regarding
the insulting Interview given out by
Chler Gritzmacher, they, expressed
themselves as very indignant that their
word should be branded as false, con
sidering that no investigation had been
made by the police beyond the mere
fact that Captain Bruin talked to Dr.
Manlon a few minutes at police head
quarters when she called there Sun
day afternoon. Detective Hartraan, who
was 'assigned" to the case, had not
called, on either of the victims up to
5 o clock yesterday evening.
When Dr. Manlon and Miss Regan
were confr&nted by the highwayman,
beta kept calm and did not grow hys
terical, bat after the robbery was com
pleted, Mis Regan became exceedingly
nervous, and wa in a very weak cea- I
dltlon all of Sunday, She was able to
attend her studies yesterday, and last
night recounted the details of the hold
up, as published yesterday morning.
In line with the official denial sys
tem, the report of Walter Lynch, to the
effect that he was held up Sunday eve
ning, was branded as untrue, although
no investigation was made of that case
by the police. The victim was aged
only 13 years.
Will Put on Another Through Train
to Portland and Return.
Owing to increasing business through
out the Northwest, and the growing
prominence ot Portland on the railway
map, the Burlington line will put on ad
ditional service from Portland to Chi
cago and the East, beginning February 15.
At present the Burlington offers
through service to the East via Billings
by the northern routes by only one train
a day, and this leaves early in the morn
ing, making It Inconvenient for the trav
eling public. The Northern Pacific train,
leaving Portland at S:30 A. SL. carries
Burlington passengers through to Chi
cago via Billings Junction, and the serv
ice from Spokane lg similar to that from
Portland In that it offers only an early
morning train to the East. By the new
arrangement, this will be changed and the
Burlington pasengcrs will be offered a
new train over the Great Northern and
Northwestern, leaving Portland at -4:30
P. M. dally for Chicago via Billings.
Tourist service will be begun to Chicago
over the Great Northern and Standard
sleeper service on the Northern Pacific
about February 15.
The service will operate on the fast
through service of the Great Northern.
and will carry passengers direct from
Portland to the East without a change
of cars. A circular setting forth the new
service in detail Is expected to arrive In
Portland in a few days from General Pas
senger Agent L. W. Wakeley. of the
Chicago. Burlington & Quincy. with
headquarters at Omaha. In a telegram
received yesterday by City Ticket Agent
R. W. Foster, the truth of the report of
added through service East from the
Northwest was .confirmed, and additional
details will be forthcoming In a short
time. It contemplates both tourist and
standard sleepers via Billings and
Omaha to Chicago and via Billings to
St. Joseph, St Louis and points East.
CHANGES INJFIRE LIMITS
Proposed Measure Is Modified While
On account of some objectionable fea
tures in the way of including desirable
residence property, the ordinance provid
ing for the establishment of new Are lim

merce, landing and wharves committee of
the Council. The original measure con
templated limits extending along the cen

the center line of Yamhill street to the
center line of Nineteenth street; thence
north on the center line of Nineteenth
street to a point 109 feet north of the
north line of Washington street; thence
eaat.on a line 100 feet north of and paral

street, to a line 100 feet west of the west
line of Fourteenth street.
As favorably recommended by the com
mittee, the lines embrace a point 100 feet
north of the north line of Yamhill street:
thence west on a line 100 feet north of and
parallel with the north line of Yamhill
street, to the center line of Fourteenth

of Fourteenth street to the center line of
Washington street; thence west on the
center line of Washington street to a
point 109 feet west of the west line of
Even with this amendment It Is not
thought the proposed ordinance will meet
with the complete approval of the Build

still a large territory Included in the fire
limits that ought to be eliminated there
from. It is probable the matter may
come up when the passage of the measure
is considered, and another amendment ba

Huge Boulder, Weighing Tons, is
Taken to City Park.
Sixteen horses were required to haul to

terday and attracted much attention, as
it was transported tnrougn the city
The monster rock was brought from the
quarry at Fisher's landing on the Colum
bia, about a week ago. It was unloaded
at the dock of the Willamette Boiler
Works, as the derrick at that place Is the
only one along the water front powerful
enough to handle so great a weight. It
was selected by Ion Lewis, of the Park
Board, as an appropriate pedestal for the
beautiful statue. Heavy moss still clings
to it, and it will correspond well with
the rugged nature of the hills surrounding
the City Park. The rock is nine feet high
and seven feet in diameter.
The Sacajawca statue was presented to
the city by the Sacajawea Society. It
was created by. Miss Cooper, of Denver,
and was one of the most admired pieces
of sculpture at the Lewis and Clark Ex
position. The cost was about $7000.
At the City Park the statue will stand
on the sdte of the old drinking fountain,
near the band stand. A heavy cement
foundation for the boulder will be laid
State Wants Larger Tax.
Testimony was taken by Judge Webster
yesterday in the action brought by State
Treasurer F. S. Moore against Mary W.
Gillette, executrix of the estate of P. W.
Gillette, deceased, to have the Inheritance
tax Increased from USD, on the ground
that the appraisement of the property was
too low. The Increase in tax desired bv
the State Treasurer is about $300. A quar
ter of a block at Hoyt and Seventeenth
streets was appraised at $1000 and was
sold to the Portland & Seattle Railway
Company for depot ground purposes for
$20,000. Ellis, G. Hughes, counsel for the
estate, took the position that the com

because It had to have It. This did not

The suit of F. B. Rcedcr and various
brothers and sisters against their
brother. J. L. Reeder. to set aside a
deed conveying a valuable tract of land
on Sauvies Island, was on trial before
Judge Cleland yesterday. The deed was
executed by Mrs. Catherine Reeder,
mother of the litigants, a short time
prior to her death, and on the same day
she executed her wllL The plaintiffs
contend that their mother was very old
at the time, in poor health and was
feeble In mind, and was readily influ

deed receives the lion's share of the
property. To substantiate these facts
the plaintiffs called the following wit

JUDGE GILBERT'S PLANS.
He Will Discuss Land-Fnrud Cases
United States Circuit Judge William.
B. Gilbert will leave Thursday for San
Francisco, where he goes to hold a ses
sion of the United States Circuit Court
of Appeals. Judge Gilbert will be In San
Francisco for about two months before
returning to Portland, and in that time
will hear and dispose of a great number
of important cases that are now waiting
on appeal from the various Federal Courts
of the Western Circuit.
Judge Gilbert will hold a conference
with Assistant Attorney-General F. J.
Heney when he reaches San Francisco,
and at that time will discuss the Oregon
land-fraud cases, and In all probability
make arrangements for the reopening of
the trials In Portland at on early date.
Judge Gilbert stated yesterday after
noon that he would hold this conference
as soon as he reached San Francisco, and
after discussing the matter with Mr.
Heney. either he or Mr. Heney would
acquaint Captain Sladen. Clerk of the
Court, of the result of the conference
and authorize him to make such an
nouncement regarding the trials as might
Mr. Heney will return to Portland in a
short time. In all probability, and take
up again the management of the land
fraud cases. It Is settled that he will
direct and manage personally all of the"
Important cases yet remaining on the
docket. He may be assisted In these by
the District Attorney here, but It Is
thought that he will try the greater num
ber of the important cases alone. After
he has finished with these It Is possible
that the minor cases may be turned over
to the care of the newly-appointed Dis
It Is not thought that Blnger Hermann's
Oregon trial will be held prior to the
hearing of the case against him at Wash
ington. Mr. Hermann evidences no great
anxiety to come to trial, and It is not
probable that his case here will come up
until after the settlement of the charges
against him at Washington.
LEE GETS SWAMP LAXDS.
Judge WolTcrton Decides the Title In
Joseph P. Lee was given title to a
large tract of swamp land In Klamath
Falls District yesterday morning by the
decision of Judge Wolverton, of the Fed
eral Court. B. S. Kerns had brought
suit against Lee for the possession of
the land. The plaintiff alleged that he
'had taken the lands In question under
the swamp-land act of the State of Ore
gon, and that after he had entered Into
negotiations for the land Lee had filed
upon the tract as agricultural and tilla
ble' land. In due course of time patent
had been granted to Lee by the United
States Land Office over the purchase of
the lands by Kerns from the state. Kerns
brought suit to have the Government title
The case was argued on demurrer and
Judge Wolverton yesterday decided that
ihe plaintiff, knowing that the lands were
swamp lands, had the privilege of filing
a protest against the action of the defend
dant at the time he entered his applica
tion in the Land Office, and prior to the
granting of the final papers. Having
failed to take such action, however. It
was held by the court that the decision
of the Secretary of the Interior In grant
ing the patents abrogated the right of
the plaintiff to protest and that the plains
tiff had then no claim upon the lands.
Arguments were made In the damage
case of Charles Oberg against the North
ern Pacific and the case was taken un
der consideration by the court.
A demurrer was overruled In the case
of Schwarz & Sons against John Kennedy.
This Is a suit to recover 6 bales of hops

DISTORTION OF FACE.
A Remarkable Cure Effected by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills.
What appears to bo a slight nervous !
attack maybe the forerunner of & severe
diso'rder. Kb nervous sufferer should
neglect the warning symptoms, but
should see that the starved nerves are
nourished before the injury to the deli- ;
cate organism has gone to an extent that
renders a cure & difficult matter. The
the blood, the same ns every other part
of the body, and the beat nerve tonic and
food is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The
experience of Mr. Harry Bemis, of
Truthville, Washington county, It.T.,
'I had been feeling bad for a long
time," said Mr. Bemis, "and in the
early part of September, 1902, 1 was com
pelled to quit work on account of my ill
health. My trouble was at first ex
treme nervousness, then my sight be
came affected and I consulted an oculist 1
who said I was suffering from paralysis.
He treated me for some time, butl got
no benefit. I tried another doctor and
again failed to obtain any relief. My
nervousness increased. Slight noises
would almost make mo wild. My mouth
was drawn o 1 could scarcely eat and
one eye was affected so I could' hardly
see. I had very little use of my limbs.
In fact I was almost a complete wreck.
"I am all right now and am at work.
That is because I followed my wife's ad
Tice and took Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
She had used the same remedy herself
with the most gratifying results and she
persuaded me to try them when it ap
peared that the doctors were uuablo to
help me. They acted very surely in my
case; my face came back into shape and
in time I was entirely well."
The reason why Dr. Williams Pink
Pills effect such remarkable cures is be
cause they purify and enrich the blood
which nourishes the nerves and gives
strength to every organ of the body.
They have cured obstinate cases of neu
ralgia, nervous prostration, sciatica, in
somnia, as well as of partial paralysis.

nounced that professional gamblers were
not entitled to sympathy when he fined
E. R. Brown W for participating In a
poker game In tjtie rear of J. W. Carson's
cigar stor-t a 2& Burns ide street. Brown
admitted that he followed gambling for a
living, and had worked in different houses
when Portland was an open town. He
said that his back was Injured during the
Civil War, and he was unable to do any
work. Judge Frazer thought otherwise,
and as Brown was unable to pay the fine
imposed, ordered him Imprisoned for 23
days. He will probably be added to tho
Carson, the proprietor of the store where
the game was conducted, informed the

filed Carson 530.

There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
.gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of,
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcingthe natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
ine remedies or Known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Svrup of Figs, manufactured bv the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are used to con
tribute their rich, vet delicate, fruitv flavor. It isth
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to ohvsicians p-enerallv. and fhm
remedy has therefore met with their approval, arwell as with
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge and from actu?I
thajtit is a most excellent laxative
r it win cure an manner or ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of known quality and excellence,
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
There are two classes of purchasers : those who are informed
to the quality of what thev buv and the reasons for the p-rrriUnrm
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
its beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy.
To the credit of the druggists of the United States be it said
ut nearly all of them value their renutation for nrnfcmn-.i
integrity and the good will of their
imitations of the
