TTIE MORNING OKEGONIAN, THURSDAY. JUNE 28, 1906.
E GANG OF
Federal Authorities Arrest Men
Suspected of Making
LEADER IS IN JAIL HERE
West Flooded With Spurious Five
and Ten-Dollar Pieces Made
on Ranch Near Hunting'
ton in This State.
It develops that the arrest of the coun
terfeiting gang near Huntington. Or., last
Monday, as announced In The Oregonian
yesterday, proves more extensive In Its
effects than originally supposed, and that
in all probability half a score will be In
the tolls before the secret service men
finish their work, as already six persons
are in custody, three additional arrests
having been made at "Weiser, Idaho, yes
terday, while several others are being
shadowed 'by the officers and may be ar
rested at any moment.
Ezra R. Coon, the leader of the gang,
and said to be one of the most expert
counterfeiters In the country, was brought
to this city yesterday morning by Deputy
Marshals and lodged in the County Jail
along with Joe Hansen, his alleged accom
plice. Both men had been arrested on the
Bastian ranch, near Huntington, where it
Is alleged they had been carrying on their
operations for several years, during which
time they have flooded the West with
spurious Jo and 10 gold pieces. Hansen
had his hearing before a United States
Commissioner at Huntington soon after
his arrest, but Coon was not brought up
for preliminary examination until yester
day afternoon, when both himself and
John H. Williams, who was arrested on
the East Side Tuesday night and lodged
In Jail here, were taken before Commis
Given Time for Counsel.
Upon their request to be allowed to con
sult an attorney before further action.
Captain Sladen postponed their hearing
until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, and
In default of J10.000 ball they were re
manded to the custody of the United
Captain B W. Bell, district secret serv
ice director 'for Oregon, Washington. Ida
ho and Montana, accompanied by Secret
Service Agent Foster, of Portland, con
tinued on their search for other members
of the gang as soon as they had sent
Coon and Hansen here from Huntington,
and the result of their continued efforts
is told In the following dispatch from
Weiser, Idaho, showing they have cap
tured three other suspects.
Cupture Three Suspects.
tTeiser, Idaho. June 37. (Speclal.V C. K.
Mills, Elmer and Eugene Turner, all of this
city, were arrested here today by Captain
Bell and Special Agent Foster, of the secret
service of the Treasury Department, and
taken to. Huntington, Or., where they will hav
a hearing- before a United States Commis
sioner on the charge of being- Interested in
a counterfeiting plant located on the Snake
River below Huntington. The plant was lo
cated recently by Captain Bell and his assist
ants. This Is the sixth arrest made 'on the
an me charge within the past three days by
Captain Bell. One was made at Portland,
two at Huntington and three here. Captain
Bell Mates that he and his men have had
the riant nnder surveillance for more than
a year past. The denomination that was
made a specialty of was $5 gold pieces, of
which & considerable quantity has been Issued.
Mills is a saloonkeeper and the two Turners
are his brothers-in-law. Al Turner la a
cattleman and Is well fixed. The arrest oc
casioned considerable surprise here, where the
men are well known. Several others are
spotted and more arrests will follow.
Deputy Sent for Prisoner.
As soon as Captain Bell had the three
Weiser suspects In custody he wired
United States Marshal Reed, of this city,
to send a deputy after the prisoners and
they will be brought here at once and
locked up. In the meantime Bell and
Foster will continue on the trail, and it
Is thought their success thus far In un
earthing the gang will result in the com
plete annihilation of one of the most skill
ful counterfeiting outfits .that .. ever
operated in the West,
It is believed that Williams was the
Portland agent of the crowd, as It Is
known that considerable spurious money
has been In local circulation for some
Williams has also been almost positively
Identified as Joe Dena, alias A. S. Staf
ford, who was arrested about two years
ago for complicity in the sensational rob
bery of Joseph Penney's establishment in
the basement of the Hotel Portland, but
who was discharged for lack of evidence.
School Principals Submit Reports.
Members of the School Board met last
night ana received the annual reports
of the principals of the different public
schools. This is the annual meeting
that precedes the election of teachers,
which will probably be held Friday
The report of the principals consisted
of recommendations for the coming
election of ' teachers. If the work of
certain teachers had not been satis
factory during the past year It was
reported to the School Board. The
meetings are always held behind closed
doors, and the reports of the principals
are not divulged.
The School Board will meet next Fri
day night and elect the teachers, if H.
Wittenberg, a member of the Board,
who is now in San Francisco, has re
turned to Portland by that time. It is
the desire of the members to have the
election over with by the end of this
' Drunken Sailor Breaks Jail.
A drunken sailor demolished the one-
room jail at the Union Depot Tuesday
night and made his escape by breaking
the panels of a large door leading to
the cell. Policeman Tlchnor arrested
the sailor for intoxication and lodged
him in the cell until he should recover
his sobriety. While the policeman was
absent the sailor recovered sufficiently
to wield his foot successfully against
the cell door, and the door leading to
the open. The escaped prisoner has
not yet been captured, and he is still
being sought by Tlchnor.

OLD UNION PACIFIC GRADE.

Trolley Line Would Block Har
riman. HILL'S LATEST PROJECT
Despite Rumors That It Is a Mere
Bit of Strategy, Officials De
clare Electric Railway Will
Be Built to Sound.
The Announcement in yesterday's Ore
gonlan of the projected electric line from
Portland to the Sound cities, to be built
by the Portland & Seattle Railway, which
has acquired the old Portland & Puget
Sound grade, has aroused a good deal
of speculation among local railroad men
as to the purpose of the move. It Is
thought by many that the object of the
Portland & Seattle is to occupy the
most feasible -route between Portland
and the Sound to the exclusion of the
Union Pacific extension.
To keep the Harriman people off the old
grade it is necessary to commence actual
construction work in building a railroad,
for otherwise the Harriman extension
could condemn a right of way along the
grade and build thereon, paying such a
price for the strip of land as the courts
PUBLIC BATHS WILL BE OPENED TO DAT.
The Portland Public Baths, at -the foot of East Taylor street, will be opened today. The bathhouse has been ren
ovated and put In first-class shape tor the season.
. The boys of the city hava been eagerly awaiting; the reopening of the baths, and there Is no doubt that this insti
tution has taken a great hold on Toung America of Portland.
Boys will be admitted free these hours: 9-12, 1:30-3:30 weekdays; men free, Sundays, 1:30-5:00. Men and women
will be charged 25 cents, 8:30-8:00, 7:30-8:30 evenings, weekdays.
NEW BILL LINE FROM PORTLAND TO PUGET SOUND
M J0 .g
phould determine was equitable. Lands
upon which one railroad is being built
cannot be appropriated by another road.
The mere purchase of the property can
not shut out the opposition road and the
only way apparently open to the Hill
lieutenants was to build on the grade
Will Shut Out Harriman.
It Is pointed out in Portland that if the
Hill interests want another road to the
Sound it would be tar easier and more
desirable in every way to double track
the present Northern Pacific line. The
easier explanation of the construction of
an electric line to the Sound seems to
be that it is the purpose of the Port
land & Seattle to occupy the territory and
prevent the Harriman extension from get
ting into the sone between Portland and
Tacoma which is now dominated by the
If this explanation of the move is true,
and many believe it Is, Mr Levey and
the Portland & Seattle have taken a tip
from the builders of the Wallula Pacinc
and are adopting the same tactics that
are charged to the latter road by Mr.
Levey. The courts have been asked to
grant the Portland & Seattle prior rights
over the Wallula Pacific because, it is
claimed, the former road means to build
while the opposition crowd is accused of
playing a blocking game. Now it is ap
parently the Portland & Seattle which
means to be in on the ground floor and
keep the Harriman road from pushing
north along the line of least resistance.
Mr. Levey is not ready with any definite
statement regarding the purpose or ulti
mate construction of the proposed road.
This seems to lend color to the theory
that the Hill people are attempting to
turn the tables on their opponents in the
Electricity the Coming Power.
On the other hand an official of the Hill
lines yesterday asserted his belief that
the proposed electric line will go forward
"I believe that electricity is the coming

motive power for railroads," he declared,
"particularly within distances of one and
two hundred miles. All along the North
ern Pacinc rival electric roads are spring
ing up, particularly through all parts of
the Northwest. We have got to meet this
competition and the only way to do it is
by adopting the trolley ourselves. We
will be forced to take to electric roads,
and aa a matter of fact we should have
done it long ago. We have already
waited too long and the other companies
have firmly established themselves.
"I believe the trolley to the Sound will
be built. Such a line can operate cars
at a good rate and It is my belief that
our present running time of six hours and
25 minutes can be cut to three and a
half hours with an electric line.
"Nothing else would develop the coun
try as a trolley system. It will make the
territory we travel between Kalama and
Tacoma a second Willamette Valley. The
agricultural possibilities are there, all it
needs is the stringing of the magic trolley
over the land and great development will
Outcome Is Uncertain.
It may be doubted if the officials of
the Portland & Seattle yet know Just what
will be the outcome of the proposition to
build an electric line parallel with the
Northern Pacific track to the Sound.
Having secured title to the old Portland
& Puget Sound grade, the right steps are
apparently being taken to hold it against
opposition which is now seeking a route
from the Columbia River to the Sound.
How much electric road will be built, or
whether activity will be stopped should
the Union Pacific extension move another
way toward the Sound is matter -for con
jecture. A party of graders is at work about a
mile north of Chehalis on the old grade
and is in charge of Engineer Merrill and
John T. Nolan. The men in the gang have
previously been at work on a spur to the
Northern Pacific tracks at Tumwater, but
were suddenly ordered to commence grad
ing at Chehalis. A large quantity of
scrapers and other grading tools is on
hand and a carload of laborers was ex
pected at Chehalis last night from Olym
pla to Join the grading forces. This work
is being done 'by the Portland & Seattle.
Holds Strategic Position.
Should the Portland & Seattle men now
at work build around the Newaukum Hill
over the old Union Pacinc grade, they
will work considerable harm for the
Union Pacific should it wish to touch
Chehalis with Its "Puget Sound extension,
as the old Union Pacific grade is the most
practicable grade through that section.
To get through the Chehalis country in
any other way would require a consider
able outlay of money and heavy construc
tion work. The occupation of the Newau
kum hill is probably an indication of the
purpose of the Portland & Seattle electric
line, as it shows an effort to hold
strategic positions against the' advance
of the rival railroad system.
F. I. FULLER RETURN'S HOME.
Plans for Management of Merger
Perfected In the East.
F. I. Puller, president of the Port
land Railway Company, reached Port
land last night, after spending the past
few weeks in the East, where he was
in conference with the backers of the
,30,000,000 consolidation of electric
light, power and traction properties re
cently formed In and around Portland.
Plans for the management of the prop
erties involved were worked out.
As stated in The Oregonlan some
Jay ago, H. W. Goode, president of the
Portland General Electric Company,
will be president of the Portland Rail
way, Light & Power Company, the
name chosen for the new merger. Oth
er officers cannot now be announced,
stated Mr. Fuller, but the election will
be held in Portland within a short time.
The first step will be the incorpora
tion of the new company and the tak
ing over of the properties involved in
the consolidation. Then officers will be
chosen and details of management out
lined. While Mr. Fuller was in the East It
was decided to go ahead with the erec
tion of the Cazadero electric power
plant and the other improvements al
ready announced. President Goode is
expected to return from the East to
day. Tonr Druggist Will Tell Ton

Number of Indictments Found
by Grand Jury and Per
ELECTION FRAUD CASES
Sellwood Precinct Matter Concerns
Some Prominent Men Upon Whom
Warrants Will Be Served
Ball Fixed in Advance.
Strange and noticeable was the manner
in which the two fateful, unlucky, or
whatever they might be termed, numbers
"23" and "13" figured so prominently in
Judge Sears' department of the State Cir
cuit Court yesterday afternoon. When the
grand Jury reported the indictments found
against the alleged election-fraud princi
pals, and it was found that there was a
total of 23 indictments returned, involving
13 persons, the incident excited no little
comment in court circles, and when the
attention of District Attorney Manning
was called to the matter he very appro
priately remarked: "Well, I guess It ia
'sklddoo' for them, all right."
Iilst of the Indicted.
J. W. Reed, Mayor of Estacada and
president of the Estacada State Bank,
appeared first on the list with three
counts standing against his name. . The
charge under which he is indicted is "in
ducing a voter to cast an illegal ballot,"
and the three cases cited are those of Al
fred Drill, Merton Bell and Harry Young.
B. F. Boynton, assistant superintendent
of the O. W. P. Co., and T. R. Baldwin,
electrician for the same corporation, each
stands indicted upon the same three
counts, but the charge entered against
them is perjury.
A, R. Dimick, dispatcher for the O. W.
P. Co.; John Schneider, foreman of Pfeif
fer .Bros. Leather Company; W. P.
Jacks, electrician for the O. W. P. Co.,
and G. Plass, secretary of the Mount
Hood Brewing Company, each stands
charged with perjury on two counts.
Olaf W. Olson, a cement worker, 672
Tacoma avenue; H. F. Labracque, oar in
spector for the O. W. P.; A. E. French,
motorman for the O. W. P., and F. C.
Hollands, a plumber for the Jacobsen
Bade Co., each stands indicted upon one
count for perjury, and Alfred Drill, su
perintendent of power for the O. W. P.
Co., and 'Merton Bell, a laborer at the
Oaks, each stands indicted for illegal
Jury Takes Up Other Work.
Immediately upon submitting their re
port to Judge Sears the jurors repaired
again to the jury-room and took up other
work on hand. It is not thought that
there will be any more indictments re
turned in the Sellwood election case, un
less it be against those who ialsely rep
resented themselves as freeholders, but
the general impression seems to be that
no action will be taken against them at
this sitting of the Jury. Judge Sears set
to work and issued bench-warrants "updh
each of the Indictments returned and fixed
the amount of ball to be furnished by
each of the defendants named In the doc
uments as follows: Two thousand dol
lars for each of those indicted upon three
counts, except in the case of J. W. Reed,
whose bail was fixed at $1000, and $1000
each for those charged with perjury upon
one and two counts, respectively, and $500
each for Drill and Bell, the only electors
entangled in the tolls of the law.
Will Serve the Warrants.
Deputy Sheriffs Grussl and Parrott
went out with several warrants late yes
terday afternoon, but no returns had been
made up to a late hour last evening, ex
cept in the case of Secretary G. Plass, of
the Mount Hood Brewing Company, who
called up the Sheriff's office by telephone,
as soon as he saw his name on the list,
and informed that office that he would
report voluntarily at 9 o'clock this 'morn
ing, and accepted service of warrant by
telephone. It is not thought that any of
those who have been indicted will make
an attempt to escape, and the officers do
not look for any difficulty in securing
service of summons. Mr. Plass was the
only one of the number with whom com
munication could be had last evening,
and, when questioned as to his side of
the case, he said:
Will Not Run Away.
"I have nothing to say for publication.
I have seen my name mentioned so fre
ouentlv in the papers of late in connec
tion with this investigation that the news
of mv indictment wag no surprise to me.
I will only say that I acted In perfect
god faith in every act I performed in con
nection with the Sellwood election and am
prepared to face any charge. I am right
here whenever they want me, and have no
intention of running away. I will appear
at 9 o'clock in the morning.
The Jury did not make its expected trip
to the Poor Farm yesteraay arternoon,
but will probably do so today. The trip
to the Poor Farm will be taken tls
morning, and it is thought the jury will
have completed its work today and be
ready to adjourn tonight or tomorrow.
Take Over Traction Line.
The Oregon Electric Railway Com
pany was organized yesterday when a
meeting of the Doara or aireci.org was

porarily. The officers are: George Barclay
Moffat, chairman; Harold B. Clark,
president; Henry Ladd Corbett, vice
