TRADE IN BABIES
CAMFORXIA L.AW LAX, SAYS
President of Crlttenton Mission Com
ments on Recent Wilson
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4. Mrs. Kate
Waller Barrett, of Washington, I. C,
president of theNatlonal Florence Orit
tenton Mission, who is here on official
business, cites the recent Wilson "qua
druplet case wherein a woman deceived
even her own husband and mother into
the belief that she had given birth to
four babies, as an example of what may
be expected under what she terms the
lax laws of California.
'Much ado is made about this case
because of iUs unique features," said Mrs.
Barrett today. "If the four babies had
been taken by as mny women nothing
would have been thought of It.
"The trade in babies in this state la
worse than the slave trade. It has been
shown through thi one exposure that
more than 300 Infants were disposed of
by a single maternity home in Los
Angeles. Many of these places are not
only causes of suffering to women and
children alike, but they make possible
a system of blackmailing which often
leads to still lower depths of sin."
Mrs. Barrett said that many Eastern
states had passed laws regulating ma
ternity hospitals, and the moral effect
had been great.
In a petition to the Superior Court
which will be presented tomorrow, Will
iam W. Wilson and his wife will ask
that they be allowed to adopt three chil
dren previously secured from maternity
homes by Mrs. Wilson. The couple have
not yet decided whether they will ask
for the custody of the four latest ac
quisitions to their household.
FEARS FOR FARALLON GROW
Absence of News and Raging Storm
SEATTLE. Wash., Feb. 4. Fears for
the safety of the Alaska Steamship Com
pany's steamer Farallon are increasing
with the passing of time without the ar
rival of news of the missing vessel." Four
weeks ago the Farallon left Port Gra
ham. Aiaska, for ports to the westward
and has not been heard from since. The
Farallon has a crew of 27 officers and
men and carried a few passengers.
The steamship A'ictorla was dispatched
from Valdez several days ago to search
for. tho FaralloK and was expected to
report at Seward Thursday morning.
A special cable from Seward says that
a fearful storm is racing along the Alaska
Coast and that the Victoria probably was
forced to put out to sea to avoid the
dangers of the rocky coast.

OREGOXIAN.NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Feb. 4. Adjournment of the Joint
hearing of the Ballinger-Pinchot contro
versy and its allied subjects' until Feb
ruary 11, which was voted today to give
newly engaged counsel an opportunity to
become, familiar with the details in
volved, oomes as tardy recognition of the
fact tlmt the hearing was sadly muddled
at the start.. The issues in the begin
ning have been clouded by personalities.
It has seemed at times as if tho main
contentions the principles involved were
being overlooked utterly. The Joint com
mittee, however keen may have been its
desire to ascertain underlying facts, has
not been familiar with minutiae. The
cross-examination of Glavis so-called
"star witness" by members of the- com
mittee has been resultory and necessarily
so. They have been limited In the scope
of their inquiry to issues presented vol
untarily by Glavis, in response to ques
tions framed by studious and careful
counsel for himself and his faackers.
Balllngers' Judgment Errs.
Secretary Ballinger, it is conceded, was
actuated by high motives in taking the
position thet. his own conscence being
clear, he would be justified In letting the
facta come out as they would, without
ltt or hindrance on his part, and without
the aid or intervention of counsel repre
senting his side. But this proved to be
not practicable. There are truths that
in the nature of things Judge Ballinger
must know better, and more in detail,
than the members of a committee. "W hat
Judge Ballinger knows, and such light as
he Is able to shed on facte and motives
and circumstances, the committee be
lieves it should have an opportunity to
learn. The testimony alone of Judge
Ballinger obviously would not cover the
ground. The committee has wished that
he would enter the inquiry actively
would instil some life into things in
other words, be represented, at least by
counsel capable of searching and intel
ligent cross-examination .and the direction
of rebuttal testimony along proper lines.
Nelson Sees Drift.
This situation was appreciated by Sena
tor Nelson even before the fiasco of the
opening cross-examination of Glavis. It
developed today at the brief public ses
sion of the Joint committee that under
date of February 2, Senator Nelson wrote

Are Limited Dates for
Other Sports to Be SeU
Portland -will be the scene next June
of a chamaplonship track and field meet
in which teama from the six leading
educational institutions will compete for
the first time. If a plan suggested at the
annual meeting of the Pacific Northwest
Intercollegiate Conference in this city
yesterday is adopted. It was practically
decided that if such a meet were held at
all it would come to .Portland. The Only
question is one of finances, and it may
be that the Hose Festival Association
will be asked to guarantee half of the
Officials' Salaries Limited.
Delegates from the six members of the
conference were present when the meet
ing was held yesterday at the Oregon
Hotel and much was accomplished in ad
dition to consideration of the big athletic
meet. Salaries of football referees and
umpires was limited to $25 and that of
head linesmen to J10. thus showing the
determination of the colleges not to con
tinue the exorbitant fees that have some
times been exacted. While considering
football, the delegates rejected a plan
making it optional with the visiting team
to take a guarantee of expenses or one
half of the gate receipts. This leaves
in efleot the present agreement, whereby
the home team pays the expenses of the
visiting one. '
Committees were appointed to arrange
schedules for other sports, such as ten
nis, wrestling and cross-country runs.
The baseball schedule for the coming
season was adopted at a meeting held
last December. Football dates ace se
lected by negotiations bet-ween the indi
vidual colleges. Committee reports will
be made at today's meeting. '
WhitwortH Applies In Vain.
"Whitworth College, of Tacoma, applied
for admission to the conference. The in
stitution was asked to conduct its ath
letics under conference rules for one
year, at the end of which period it may
be voted into membership.
Chief interest In the meeting centers in
the question of holding a track and field
meet, in which all of the "Bix Six" shall
compete, instead of deciding the cham
pionship, as In the past, by dual matches.

20 WIVES CLAIM COUNT
Girl Chokes Von Miller In Jersey City
NEW YORK. Feb. 4. Dr. Karl Emll
Xon Miller, or Mueller, the "marrying
Count," stood siege today in the Hud
son County jail in Jersey City by a
small army of women who claim 'him
as husband. Miller was brought to Jer
sey City yesterday from I.os Angeles.
He is said to be so plentifully married
that a trial for bigamy on some 19 or
20 counts probably awaits him.
He was safe behind the bars and
failed to display the nervousness he not
unnaturally - had exhibited when two
women met him at the railroad station
on his arrivah when one of them. Miss
Bertha Albrecht, throttled him and
created a scene by her screams.
Miss Albrecht claims the Count
merely as a suitor, who, when rejected,
solaced himself with $300 of her money.
Miss Reglna Verbelman declares the
Count married iter in 1908. and that
when he left her he took $760 of her
money. Miller denies any acquaintance
with Miss Albrecht.

Rumors that actual mob violence had

tonight from the Sheriff's office at Mon

any movement to take the prisoner
from the jail. The move of the police
was purely a precaution.
Restless Xlght Is Passed.
The prisoner passed a restless nig-ht,
but today still maintained an air of
carelessness. His wife is steadfast In
her belief that he is innocent of the
numerous crimes to which rumors hava
attached his name since his arrest yes
terday. Searchers returned at 6:30 tonight
from the Indian Creek shack owned by
Oohl, empty-handed. The water near

South Bay shack to look for the body

this city, has not yet returned.
fgly. Stories Spring tip.
Springing up like the dragon's teeth,
accusations, rumors and stories are
flooding in upon the police. Many who
are bringing to light tf?e past history
of Gohl are men who say their lips
were sealed by their fear of him, but.
now that the law has at last seoured
Gohl in its grip, which hourly appears
to grow tighter and tighter, their sense
of security has loosed their tongues.
Added today to the long list of crimes
which Gohl will be asked to explain is
the disappearance of a former partner,
August Miller, one time dog catcher In
this city. The prisoner is also believed
to know something of smuggling opera
tions which are believed to have been
carried on along the waterfront shacks.
Those Who Quailed Xow Talk. '
Men who quailed before Gohl during his
freedom now seem the boldest in attack,
and during last night it was feared that
those wno had feared one man would
defy the several guards at the City Jail
and attempt a lynching. This under-current
of riot spread to others of the mora
turbnlently inclined and this afternoon,
fearing that the finding of another body
would light the powder, Gohl was spirited
from the City Jail and hurried by auto
mobile to the County Jail at Montesano.
He made the Journey handcuffed to
City Detective K. T. Church and Deputy
Sheriff Gus Toungeberg. So far as the
man's expression of feeling was con
cerned, he might as well have been the
host In a little outing instead of a man
suspected of almost two-score murders.
"Must Be Proved," He Replies.
Typical of the man's attitude was tha
scene at the County Jail. The Jailer had
difficulty in reading the warrant and he
was Hold it charged Gohl with murder
in the first, degree. "That's a bad
charge." the jailer remarked.
"Ye-s." said Gohl. speaking in. the
slight dialect he could never shake off.
"It's a fairly serious charge, all right;
but then you know a man is never guilty
until you prove it." He spoke in a non
chalant voice, and dismissed the subject
as if discussing the weather. .
Search for the body of Hoffman, be
lieved to be anchored in the Chehalis
River, near the ' Golil shack, some six
miles from this city on Indian Creek, was
without result today, as was the investi
