PUTER TO WRITE
King of Oregon Land Sharks
Will Tell Inside Facts of
NEWSPAPER MAN TO HELP
From Actual Experience Covering a
Period of 2 5 Years, Puter Will
Give to World Story In All
Its Glaring Details.
From the dark and forbidding recesses
of his cell In the Multnomah County
Jail, S. A. D. Puter, king of the Oregon
land-fraud operators. Is to tell In book
form the story of his part In the looting
of the public domain, covering a period
of fully a quarter of a century all over
the Pacific Coast.
Yesterday Puter sent for Horace Stev
ens, a reporter of The Oregonlan, who
has had much to do with reporting tha
land-fraud trials for this paper, and to
whom he Imparted the secret of his am
bition. Arrangements were entered into
whereby the local newspaper man Is to
collaborate with the distinguished land
shark In giving to the world a full and
complete history of land-fraud operations
on the Pacific Coast from the date of
their earliest Inception down to the pres
ent time, which Puter characterizes as
the beginning of the end of Illegal trans
actions in this connection. Discussing the
situation yesterday, he said:
"There are three well-defined periods
of fraudulent land operations In this
Western country, extending through a
course of many years, and I have been
an active participant in them all. They
have arisen Just as any other spasmodic
effort has come to the surface, and then
receded, carrying men high in official po
sition with them down to degradation and
dishonor, leaving them high and dry on
the treacherous shores of puolic opinion.
"This is the last grand stand of the
land thieves, and now 1 - am prepared
to tell the story to the- world in all its
glaring details, because . I feel that it is
a topic that possesses much human in
terest, without counting the moral senti
ment involved in the issue."
The work will be replete with illustra
tions covering many of the dramatic
episodes Incident to the various trials
that have brought such unpleasant no
toriety to this state, and photographs of
all the prominent actors will adorn its
pages. Puter was particularly anxious
that a steel engraving of Francis J.
Heney should be the frontispiece. The
other pictures will represent William J.
Burns, the celebrated Government detec
tive, from whom Puter made his sensa
tional escape In Boston last March, and
who figured conspicuously in working up
the cases ' against all the land-fraud
operators In Oregon: Horace G. McKin
ley. who married Marie Ware, after
wards deserting her and eloping to the
Orient with "Little Egypt"; Mrs. Emma
L- Watson, who has heretofore steadfast
ly refused to allow any photograph of
herself to be given out: Dan W. Tarpley,
Blnger Hermann. ex-Commissioner of the
General Land Office; Irvin Rittenhouse,
private secretary to Heney: Thomas B.
Neuhausen. Special Inspector of the De
partment of the Interior: United States
Attorney Bristol. Senator Mitchell, F. A.
Hyde, John A. Benson, Judge Hunt, who
has presided in most of the cases; J. N.
Williamson, Congressman; George Soren
son, F. P. Mays, State Senator, who was
recently convicted by a Jury In the Fed
eral Court for his connection with the
Blue Mountain Forest Reserve frauds;
John H. Hall, ex-United States District
Attorney, who was removed from office
ty President Roosevelt for alleged com
plicity In the land-frauds, besides a host
of others more or less in the limelight
at different stages of the investigations
that were ordered by Secretary of the
Interior Hitchcock with a view of sup
pressing the Illegal transactions.
Puter was born in Trinity County, Cal.,
60 years ago and was reared among the
redwood forests of Humboldt County,
where he had excellent opportunity for'
studying the varying conditions of back
woods life. It Is said that no person in
the country has a better knowledge of
timber than he, or of the laws relating
to the acquisition of the public domain,
and it has often been hinted that if he
had directed the same amount of energy
to legitimate pursuits that has charac
terized his efforts in Btealing land from
the Government, he would now be in the
millionaire class Instead of basking in
the heated atmosphere of a dungeon.
It is expected that the book will be
ready for publication about the first of
GETS LEAVE OF ABSENCE
Government Shows Its Appreciation
of Inspector Xeuhausen's Services.
Thomas B. Neuhausen, special in
spector of the Department of the Inte
rior, who has been largely Instrumental
in securing- the evidence used by the
Government to convict those tried un
der Indictment for land frauds, yester
day received a telegram from Secre
tary Hitchcock granting him 30 days'
leave of absence. Inspector Neuhausen
has labored hard to gather testimony
that would strengthen the cases against
the defendants, and that his efforts
were appreciated is indicated by the
long vacation allowed him.
In view of the fact, however, that the
trial of the Butte Creek Land, Live
stock & Lumber Company case will
occupy the attention ,of the Federal
Court next month, Mr. Neuhausen will
arrange his leave of absence so as to
take a portion now and the rest after
MAYOR WILL USE
HIS VETO TODAY
Defeat of 0. R. & N. Company's
East Third Street Fran
DIRECT PROMISE GIVEN
Chief Executive Informs President
of ' Initiative One Hundred of
His Intention May Pass
Mayor Lane will today veto the ordi
nance granting to the O. R. & N. Co. a
franchise to lay tracks on East Third
street, according to a statement made by
hm to Francis I. McKenna, president of
the Initiative One Hundred. Mr. Mc
Kenna stated yesterday that he had con
sulted with the city's chief executive and
had received assurances that the measure
which has met with such general opposi
tion because of its stipulations will be
returned to the Council disapproved.
The announcement that the Mayor la
to veto the franchise does not come as a
surprise. He has repeatedly expressed
criticism of the franchise as drawn up.
MILWAUKIE EDITOR "ROASTS"
THRIFT OF SCHOOL BOARD
Charges That Directors Do Not Use Local Paper for Ad
vertisingv and That Teachers Are Underpaid.
ANTED A Janitor for the Mil-
waukie School at once. The
salary is $25 per month."
When Philip Strelb, chairman of the
board of directors of the Milwaukle
school district, posted the foregoing no
tice In the Mllwaukie Postoffice, he did
not dream that an uproar would follow,
and that the directors would receive a
grilling from the local paper. But the
thunderbolt fell Saturday, when the Bee,
the little sheet printed by Charles Bal
lard, appeared Saturday morning. Mr. Bal
lard returned home last week from the
St. Vincent's Hospital, where he had his
left eye removed, but if he escapes with
out losing the other eye this week he
will be lucky. Judging from the uproar
his "roast" of the school board caused.
The article is as follows:
W notice from a placard posted up in
the poatofflce that the Board of School Di
rectors wants a Janitor. They didn't adver
tise it In the Bee, because that would have
cost them 15 cents. Perhaps, too, they didn't
want to advertise to t'ne world that they had.
a forty dollar job that they wanted some
body to do for twenty-live dollars. We have
a very economical Board of Directors. If
we were swearing men we would say too
d d economical. We pay more money to
a man to set type for ui than the district
pays to the man who should take the lead
in moulding the characters of the children
of the community: For instance: We had a
fine teacher here three years ago. Professor
L. A. Read. His home was here. His inter
ests were here. He was a good man and
he was a good teacher and so far as we have
heard there were no complaints against him,
yet they let a little backwoods town like
Park Place take him away from us because
they were willing to pay him something like
what bis services were worth. We know
nothing about the present principal of our
schools. We trust we have a good man. but
we will venture this assertion, that if he
Is worth anything at all he will not stay
here two years, for some little country
school like Concord or Wlllsburg will offer
him $10 a month more than he is getting
here, and Mllwaukie will let him go. and
put up with a cheaper grade. We will see
vtitt we cill.
The community has taken sides for and
against the Bee. A prominent resident,
who does not think it safe to come out
in the open, said:
"That is the best thing I have seen for
a long time. It is the exact truth about
our school board, I am ashamed to admit.
Professor Read, one of the best edu
cators In the state, was lost because the
board would not pay him a reasonable
salary. They paid him "$60 for one year
and then $65 for another year. He want
ed $75 and would have stayed for $70, but
the board thought they had him tight,
as he had bought a home in Mllwaukie,
but Park Place offered him $80, and he
pulled out and sold his home. Miss Emma
Ruegg, who followed him, was brought
out from the East without knowing what
her qualifications were. It happened that
she was a capable teacher. Our school
board will have to do better."
"I do think it a great shame and out
rage that such a thing should appear In
our home paper," declared Mrs. Maggie
Johnson, ' clerk of the district, who took
up the cudgel for the directors with some"
earnestness. "It is the board's business
to get a Janitor for $25 a month if it can,
and If not the directors will pay more.
And furthermore, this district pays as
good salaries as any district in 'the county
outside of Oregon City probably. We pay
our present principal $75 per month. I
deny that Professor Seymour is a cheap
man. He received $80 before he came to
Mllwaukie, and came here for the reason
he wanted to be near Portland. We pay
our grade teachers $55 per month. Miss
Ruegg, who succeeded Professor Read,
was a first-class teacher, yet even better
than Mr. Read in some respects."
The school will open this morning with
Professor Seymour as principal. He has
three assistants. There are four rooms
In the building, and the attendance last
year ran up to 160. Clerk Johnson reports
that 30 have been added to the roll since
the former census was taken. Members
of the board are not inclined to be dis
turbed over the "roast" Editor Ballard
gave them and may not give It any offi
cial notice. However, the matter will
probably be made an ."issue" In the com-
especially last week, when he was in con
sultation with a delegation of East Side
property-owners, but his statement to
Mr. McKenna is his first direct intima
tion of the course he will pursue.
Mayor Lane must act on the ordinance
today it being the tenth day after its
passage by the Council. Otherwise the
measure would become a law without
his signature. The other two courses open
are for him to sign the ordinance or veto
it. and It Is now certain that the latter
action is to be taken.
Ever since the East Third-street fran
chise was drawn up, there has been wide
spread and determined opposition to the
measure. Practically the only direct
support It has received has come from
the East Side Improvement Association,
which is composed largely of property
owners along the route of the proposed
line, and from the Portland Realty Board
which passed resolutions Indorsing the
ordinance, and also sent a delegation to
call upon the Mayor with the East Side
Opposition to the franchise originated
with the Initiative One Hundred, but has
since been taken up by other organiza
tions. The other bodies which have gone
on record as of opinion that the granting
of the franchise would be against the best
interests of the city are the Federated
Trades Council, the Mount Tabor Im
provement Association and the Monta
villa Board of Trade. Each of these or
ganizations has importuned the Mayor to
veto the ordinance.
Opposition to the franchise has been
especially pronounced because of the
omission of a common-user clause and
of any provision giving the city a
right to purchase the line if It is
found desirable to do so. As East Third
street is generally regarded as altogether
the most feasible entrance to the city
now unoccupied by any line, it Is held
that with these two clauses omitted the
franchise would be a bar to any otner
company which wanted to enter Portland
during the 25 years' duration of the or
dinance. In addition to this there has been a
remonstrance against the ordinance be
cause the only compensation provided for
the city Is the nominal consideration of
$50 a year. Under Its terms the company
would also he required to make a 20-foot
fill for its track, but this is regarded as
simply a return to property owners along
the route by having street improvements
made for them which in the natural
course of affairs would be paid for by a
levy upon the abutting property.
May Seek Compromise.
It is probable that when the measure
Is returned to the Council an attempt
will be made to induce the O. R. & N.
officials to consent to the addition of the
common-user and purchase clauses. It is
doubtful if the 12 votes necessary to pass
the measure, as drawn up at present,
over the Mayor's head could be secured
in the face of the opposition which has
arisen. Mr. McKenna is of the opinion
that not more than eight Councllmen, at
most, will vote for the passage of the
ordinance if it comes up again without
"In case the franchise is passed as it
now stands over the veto of Mayor Lane,
the Initiative One Hundred will put form
every effort to secure its defeat on a
referendum vote of the people," said Mr.
McKenna last evening. "I do not believe
that there is the least doubt but that the
franchise would be overwhelmingly
beaten if it comes up for a popular vote.
Many have already come to me volun
tarily and offered to circulate petitions
to bring the franchise up at the next
municipal election In case the Council

IN BLOODY AFFRAY
Orientals Fight Battle With
' Knives in North End
ONE SUCCUMBS TO WOUNDS
S. Morlyama Almost Cut to Pieces.
II. Mlya Is Perhaps Mortally
Wounded Other Partici
pants Escape. .
One Japanese was killed and another
probably fatally wounded last night In
a stabbing affray at 43 North Second
street, corner of Couch. S. Morlyama
and H. Mlya were the principals. Morl
yama died while being taken to the
hospital, and Mlya lies In a critical
condition at St. Vincent's Hospital.
Nine Japanese were mixed up in the
trouble, according to the best Informa
tion the police were able to obtain laBt
night. Mlya was one of a drinking
party in the Second-street restaurant
which is oonduoted by T. Aokl. Morl
yama is said to have entered and de
manded $50 of Mlya and upon being
refused drew a knife and attacked the
other Oriental. Everyone In the room,
except two women, are said to have
taken part in the cutting but none was
captured except the two principals,
who were too badly wounded to escape.
When the police were notified of the
trouble Sergeant Baty and Acting De
tective Smith were sent to the res
taurant, where they found every evi
dence of a fierce fight. The small side
room In the front of the building, where
the brawl had occurred, was a com
plete wreck. Morlyama, apparently
dead, was lying in a pool of blood on
the floor, while broken chairs and
dishes showed that the struggle had
lasted some time. Blood was spattered
over everything, but all o the Japanese
except Morlyama had disappeared.
Upon investigation Mlya was found In a
back room of the same building, facing
on Couch street, where he had been spir
ited by his friends in hope of keeping
him from the authorities. He was so bad
ly wounded, however, that he would prob
ably soon have bled to death had he not
been taken to the hospital and medical
assistance given him. v
Other Participants Escape.
A thorough search was made by the
detectives and police in hopes of finding
the others engaged in the affair, but
without results. At first it was thought
that one or more of the others might
also he wounded, but this theory was
abandoned. They had successfully made
their escape, however, and no trace could
be found of them nor would any of their
countrymen tell their whereabouts or give
their names to the police, al maintaining
silence, or claiming that they did not
know anything about the affair.
A peculiar circumstance Is that the
knives used had been so successfully
hidden that they could not be found al
though every part of the building was
As nearly as can be learned from the
conflicting stories of the Japanese who
live in the vicinity, there were six men
and two women in the room at the time
Morlyama entered. The men were all
laborers who had Just returned from the
canneries in Alaska and were spending
money freely when Morlyama demanded
$50 from Mlya. The latter gave him $5
and upon his refusal to give more money,
Morlyama whipped out a long knife and
began to slash him. The other people in
the room rushed out and what happened
afterwards will only be known to Mlya
If he survives his terrible Injuries and
cares to tell.
According to another version there were
only two men In the room-besides Morl
yama, Mlya and another man who could
not be found.
Morlyama Almost Hacked to Pieces.
Morlyama's head was cut In numerous
places and one of his arms was nearly
severed from the body. It was seen when
the officers entered the room that he
could not live. He hardly breathed when
he was put on a stretcher and carried
to the patrol wagon. He was started for
St. Vincent's Hospital but died before
After Morlyama was taken away to
the hospital the officers were led to an
other entrance on Couch street, a few
doors around the corner from the res
taurant, and there on a wooden bench,
half naked, lay Mlya with a long gash
in his chest and numerous wounds in
his head. The floor there too was cov
ered with blood and the man was un
conscious. He breathed heavily and
blood was freely flowing from his many
The witnesses declared that after tha
stabbing took place on Second street
they took Mlya out of the room and
placed him on the bench in the place
where he was found by the officers, while
Morlyama was left in the lodging-house
on Second street. They explained that
fact with the statement that Mlya was
a respectable Japanese, while Morriyama
was nothing but a Japanese highbinder.
All the Inmates of the lodging-house
seem to be sworn to secrecy about the
affair. Sergeant Baty and Acting Detec
tive Smltl who took charge of the case
together with Special Detective Maher,
were unable to Induce the Japanese to
deliver or point out the men who were
in the room at the time the fight started.
A strong suspicion exists that a .third
Japanese, who cannot be found, is also
Implicated In the cutting affair, and that
all of the men in the room may have had
a hand in the slaying of Morlyama.

Menth was sent to live with Mr. Han
