Spokane Officer Comes to
Hunt Clew to Murderer
of Hutchinson.
Body of Pcad Y. M. C. A. Worker
Arrives and Services Will Be
. Held at First Congrega
tional Church.
Is an explanation of the cold-blooded
murder of Reno Ifutchinson to be
found In the vicinity of Portland?
Was the motive for the shocking mur
der at Spokane Monday night afforded
by incidents ot local occurrence?
These questions are now being
worked upon by a special detective
sent here hurriedly by the Spokane de
partment. This officer arrived last
evening and immediately set to work
on the case. He did not visit police
headquarters or communicate witii
other authorities. . He did spend some
thing like an hour, however, at the
Y. M. C. A. headquarters and made
every effort to cover up his move
ments. This officer is working on several
theories. One of these, scouted by
friends ot the murdered man and his
widow, is that a former suitor of Mrs.
Hut'-hinson may be implicated. The
robbery idea appears to have many
setbacks, and so .with all other the
ories. And while the subject is a deli
cate and distant of ul one. yet the ne
cessity is manifest of running to earth
every straw that may seem to point
towards the perpetrator of the dastard
ly crime".
The suitor theory is ridiculed and
branded as cruel by those who knew
the young couple. There was a suitor
before Mr. Hutchinson met his wife.
But it is stated positively by this
young man's employer and associates
that no was in Salem, his present
home, on Monday evening, that he is
there at present and has not been
away in several months. Inasmuch as
no otht.r suiior is known of that very
unpleasant theory appears to be done
away with, so far as the young man
in question is concerned.
Another one which the Spokane offi
cer is working on is that a crook who
had some bitter antagonism to the
Y. M. C A. work did the shooting.
Iocal Y. M. C. A. officials believe such
a theory has some foundation and will
assist the Washington detective in
sifting it to the bottom.
Funeral services over the remains of
Reno Hutchinson will" be. held this after
noon at 2 o'clock at the Congregational
Church. The body arrived night
from Spokane, from which place it was
accompunied by R. B. MacNaughtnn, of
this city. The services will be conducted
by Rev. E. L. House. D. D. assisted
by Rev. V. J. Himlley, of Spokane, who
came here with Mrs. Hutchiruson after
the murder. Impressive services will be
held and many frlemls of, the dead man
will undoubtedly attend.
A resolution of tribute and condolence
was passed lat evening at the monthly
meeting of the Members Congress, Y. M.
C. A. Immediately after adopting these
resolutions, the congress adjourned as ft
token of respect for the dead man. taking
up no business matters whatever. The
resolutions as adopted, are as follows:
Whereas, In the providence of events,
there haa been taken from life our recent
co-worker and beloved friend, Reno Hutch
inson. Be it resolved, by the members' confess
of the Tortland Young Men's Chrlftlnn As
sociation, that in his untimely death the
workers for rtKhteoiiines have lost an ear
nest and Efficient young leader, the asso
ciation one of its most promising secreta
ries, and every member of the .Portland as
sociation a personal friend.
lie was a Kiant physically, mentally and
pjrltually and the example of his noble life
must exert a powerful and lasting Influence
for good among young men. Ha was a
broad-minded Christian worker, full of en
ergy and of love for his fellow men and had
consecrated bis life to a work whose ole
ebjoi-i wa the uplifting of mankind. We
know of no better example of pure, noble
and unselfish living to hold up for young
He it further resolved that we extend our
heartfelt sympathy to his bereaved wife'
and family and that they be furnished with
a copy of these resolutions.
Working Hard to KMablish Theory
of Assassination.
SrOKANK. Wash., Oct. 17. (Special.)
The police department bent every en
ergy today to prove their assassination
theory, in the murder of Keno Hutchin
son, secretary of the Y. M. C. A., who
was kilted Monday night. It became
known that Chief Waller and his detec
tives were harboring the theory that a
sweetheart of Mrs. Hutchinson of the
years preceding her marriage had become
crazed and had committed the deed.
iVtectives employed by the Thiel and
iMnkerton agencies, for the first time
were also working on the same theory.
Captain Swain, head of the Thiols, de
clined to discuss the matter at length,
but admitted that his original theory,
that the murder was the work of hold
up men. had been slightly shattered.
Detectives are givnig up the theory
that a man jealous of Mr. Hutchinson's
prospects for building up the Spokane
Y. M. C. A. may have committed the
murder. Officials of the local Y. M. C.
A. have always soofTed at this theory
on the ground tlint no animosity devel
oped regarding the Y. M. C. A. work.
The belief was growing among the
police department that Rev. W. J. Hind
ley has learned of a clew pointing to
the man who may have committed the
murder. It i also known that J. C.
Barline, who was at the Hutchinson home
following the murder, has been closely
catechised as to whether op not Mrs.
Hutchinson had any suspicions to the
man who killed her husband.
One of the detectives working on the
case said, however, that he held to the
theory that the murder was the work
of thugs. He s;iid he thought Mr. Hutch
inson had resented the attempt to hold
him up and that he dodged to escape
shooting at the time the shot was tired,
an act that would explain the direction
of the bullet, whlhc ranged upward at
a sharp angle after entering the left
side near the waist line.
This detective also said that a Colt's
automatic revolver contains ten cart
ridges, and that if the murder had been
done by an assassin, it is likely that more
than one shot would have been fired at
the. prostrate man. The detective also
places strong reliance for his hold-up the
ory from the fact that two men were seen
running from the neighborhood, one of
the men speeding east on Seventh avenue
and the other running northeast across
the Hartson lawn.
One of the private agency men working
on the case was so sure of the theory of
murder because of jealousy that he pre
dicted an arrest would be made within
the next 24 hours.
Crawford Attends to State's Inter
ests in Washington Courts.
Washington, Oct. 17. Attorney-General
A. M. Crawford, of Oregon, is in
Washington on several state matters
before the courts and departments
and expects to leave ' for home in a
few days. The principal object of his
visit is to arrange for filing in -the
Court of Claims tne argument in sup
port of Oregon's claim against the
Government, amounting to 1300,000 or
$400,000 for money advanced to volun
teers during the Civil War and for
kindred purposes. Legislation referr
ing this claim to the Court of Claims
was put through by Senator Fulton
last session.
Mr. Crawford will tomorrow obtain
permission from the Supreme Court to
print the testimony in the Oregon
Washington boundary case, over which
this court has original jurisdiction.
Testimony was taken at Portland dur
ing the past, Summer. It is doubtful
if the case can be reached this term,
owing to the crowded condition of the
Another matter Mr. Crawford has
been attending to is Oregon's claim
to 300 or 400 acres of swamp land
that has recently been embodied in the
Klamath irrigation project. Though
the state has not obtained title to this
land under Its swamp grant, it con
veyed its interest to other parties and
Mr. Crawford is asking that the state's
title be confirmed in order that the
grantees of the state may in turn have
a clear title. This adjustment will be

this morning.
Geological Survey Gathers Data on I
Supply for Power.
Washington, Oct. 17. With a view to
gathering complete data on the water
supply of Western Oregon the Geo
logical Survey has been maintaining
gauging stations on the more import
ant streams of that section during the
past Summer, and will continue work
indefinitely in conjunction with the
state authorities. Nine stations are
now operated. The results of the
year's observations will be published
wh'n full returns are received.
These measurements are of great
value to those seeking sites for power
plants, as readings are made daily
and give the exact flow of each stream
gauged. Work is now under way at
Albany, Jasper, .Goshen. Hendrick's
Ferry, Waterloo, Meliama, Suver,
Dickey Prairie and Barton.
Uncle Sam Digs Okanogan Canals.
Washington, Oct. 17. The Secretary
of the Interior has authored the
Reclamation Service ' to construct un
der force account Or by small con
tracts 13 mHos of canal on the Okano
gan irrigation project, in Washington.
Thin work consists of the extension
of the main canal for 514 miles and of
the lower main canal for 7H miles.
The region is remote from railroad
transportation and It Is difficult to se
cure satisfactory bids. It is therefore
believed to be to the best interests of
the Government to carry on the work
as outlined.
Experts Try to Find Missing $61,
500 in St. Louis.
ST. LOl-IS. Oct. 17. The Republic to
day prints the following:
Three expert accountants from the
Treasury Department at Washington,
working under a Deputy United States
Treasurer, counting more than $20,000,000
in the vaults of the United States sub
Treasury, have discovered a shortage of
$iU.J00. United States Sub-Treasurer
Thomas J. Akins admitted that the ex
perts are In St. Louis, but said that no
definite statement would be made by him
until the representatives at Washington
had finished their investigation.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 17. The officials
of the Treasury Department have been
informed by T. J. Aikins. the assistant
Treasurer of the United States sub
Treasury at St Louis, that there is a prob
able shortaKe in the accounts of his office
of about $61,500 and at his request his
accounts are being checked by the Treas
ury experts.
It is understood that the Assistant
Treasurer, in checking up one of the
cages in his office, found the cash short
to the amount stated, but on being con
fronted with the figures, the clerk In
charge insisted that he knew nothing of
the matter and that there must have
been an error in bookkeeping. Mr. Aikins,
however, was of the opinion that there
was an actual shortage and immediately
notified the Department and asked for 11
prompt examination of his office

Little Hope for Crew of French
Submarine. -
I.utin Plunged Twice and Then Dis
appeared, Probably Stifling the '
Crew With Deadly Fumes.
Whole Fleet at Scene.
BIZERTA. Oct. 17. Preparations for an
attempt to raise the submarine boat
Lutin. sunk near this port yesterday, with
Lieutenant Fepoux and 14 men, were be
gun at dawn. Although the bottom Is
sandy three miles off the coast, where the
Lutin is supposed to have sunk, the
chances of raising the Lutin to the sur
face in time to save the lives of the crew
are regarded as slim.
The officers engaged in the salvage
work with the certainty that the crew of
the Lutin had perished. Members of the
crew of the tug. Ishmul, which convoyed
the Lutin on her last voyage, declare that
the submarine plunged twice successively,
and after she had gone down for the third
time the bow showed twice above the sur
face of the water before she finally dis
appeared. This leads to the belief that
the catastrophe resulted from a suddqp
leak at the stern. The water probably
rushed in very rapidly and overturned the
accumulators. This would cause death
giving fumes to emanate from them, and
the crew would have no chance for life.
Admiral Belue tonight said it is uncer
tain whether the salvagers have located
the Lutin or not. The divers have reached
the bottom, but owing to the roughness
of the sea they were unable to remain
below long enough to make a thorough
investigation. Fourteen salvage vessels
now form a cordon around the spot where
the Lutin went down. The divers descend
in. relays, and are displaying untiring
The British Admiralty has sent a battle
ship, a cruiser and a torpedo-boat de
stroyer, as well as several tugs, tb assist
in the search. Tonight the sea Is moder
ating, .and the work tomorrow will be con
tinued under better conditions.
Kims When Sees Polleenian, but
Surrenders to tiun Convict
and Proud of It. '
Seen as he was crawling out of a
second-hand store on Front street, after
breaking- throug-h a glass window,
Arthur M. Freel, 23 years old, an ex
convict, was caught after a chase by
Patrolman H. C Bales near the Mor
rison street bridge, after the officer ha
shot four times. Arrested and taken to
the station, 16 watches of all kinds
and sizes, 2u gold rings, with different
settings, and one pair of large field
gVasse were found on the burglar, which
he admitted he stole from the store.
Patrolman Philips was at the corner
of Front and Morrison street at 1 o'clock
this morning when he heard the crash
of broken glass. Bales joined him there
and continued his investigation alone. On
reaching the secondhand store of R.
Noranovorsky, Front street, he saw
the upper part of the large show window
broken. He climed over the window and
saw the burglar in the store strike a
match. The officer quickly jumped to the
ground and ' concealed himself near the
entrance. Shortly the burglar came out.
Bales covered him at once with his re
volver and ordered him to throw up his
hands, but the robber broke into a run
and ran north on Front street into Mor
rison street and started to run toward
the Morrison-street bridge. Bales went in
pursuit and shot four times after the
burglar. The policeman was about ten
feet away, when Freel suddenly turned
around, threw his hands up and. saying
"For GocTs sake.- don't phoot," sur
rendered and went with Bales to the
police station.
Free! made no secret of his latest bur
glary, ,and displayed great bravado..
Watches of all descriptions, some gold,
some silver and several nickel ones, rings
with differen. stones and the pair of field
glasses were found in his pockets. Freel
admitted he got them in the store and
that it was not his first offense.
"I am an ex-convict. No. 62.750, and X
won't stay here long," declared the youth
ful criminal as he gave his age as 18
years. His portrait in the Portland
rogues gallery, however, plainly shows
that Arthur M. Freel,, when arrested in
1903. was 20 years old. His picture. No.
950, is- at the headquarters, and it gives a
long history of Free I s past crimes. About
five years ago he stole a large quantity
of copper wire, served a term in the Coun
ty Jail, and then went to Astoria, where
he forged a check and was sent for a long
term to the penitentiary. After two years
in the penitentiary he was released, and
he had hardly left the gates when it was
discovered he stole an overcoat belonging
to a deputy warden. Another arrest and
term in the same penitentiary followed.
He was released only a short time ago.
This is the first time he was caught at
his nefarious practice since his release,
but it is suspected that Freel is guilty of
several burglaries in the past few months.
Freel made loud threats that he
would not stay in jail very long, as
he had influential friends in the de
partment. He made an urgent plea
to see Acting Detective John Price
and admitted that Price knows him
and will help him when he knows his
(Freel's) plight. He declared he was
short of funds yesterday and sold his
watch" in the store yesterday afternoon,
but wanted it back and he got it with
the otner plunder.
