regulars assisting them, they will have
little trouble in taking charge of the wel
fare of the city for a snort time.
Medals for bravery will be given, prob
ably, on the occasion. Officers Stahl and
George Croxford are in line for these
honors, both men having shot and killed
dangerous criminals during the past year.
Albany to Vote on Bond Issue.
ALBANY, Or, May 1. (Special.) A
special election will be held in this city
tomorrow on the question of issuing $40,
000 bonds to build a City Hall. In the
last regular election, iu December, the

Will Take Stand In Case Against
Millionaire C. A. Smith.
Stephen A. D. Puter will arrive in
Portland over the O. R. & N. during
the forenoon but will not today be
placed on the witness stand in the
Charles A. Smith trial.
Puter is charged with having Joined
Horace G. McKlnley in the origination
of the scheme to acquire land and to
have Induced the Minnesota millionaire
to furnish the money whereby the en
trymen were enabled to "prove up."
Puter was not served with a summons
to appear on the witness stand and
took a trip East.
The Government representatives be
lieve that Puter will be able to con
nect Charles A. Smith with knowledge
of the fraudulent means which were
employed by the conspirators. Smith
and the Llnn-Iane Timber Company,
of which he is president, deny that they
knew that the title to the lands was
tainted at the time they acquired it.
It has been charged that Puter was
remaining away In order to force the
Governnifent to give him immunity
from two Indictments -which are said
to be hanging over him.
When Puter heard that his motives
were being assailed, he was a patient
In a hospital at Scranton, Pa., where
he had undergone an operation for ab
scess of the ear. A United States
Marshal of Pennsylvania carried the
news to the sick witness, and Puter
immediately Insisted on being allowed
to begin the Journey Westward. It
was finally arranged that he might
undertake the trip by agreeing- to stop
over In Chicago for treatment.
The delay in Chicago is accountable
for the fact that Puter did not arrive
in time to take the stand today. Puter
has kept the office of District Attorney
McCourt fully advised as to his where
abouts since leaving Scranton. He
telegraphed from Cheyenne, Wyo., and
from Pocatello, Idaho.
A large number of entrymen who
have not heretofore appeared on the
witness stand arrived in the city last
night and will be held in reserve pend
ing the Puter testimony.
California. Governor and Mr. Russell
AgTee on Fight Publicity.
"I see," said W. M. Russell, of Russell
& Drew, managers of the Portland the
ater, yesterday, "that Governor Gillette
of California has taken my thunder. The
Governor Indorses what I said a week
ago in Seattle about the attitude of the
newspapers toward prizefighting. Even
though the Governor may not have seen
what I wrote about it, there Is an im
plied compliment you know what sort of
minds they are which are. said to 'run
in the same channel. "
Governor Gillette was talking of the
fatal outcome of a prizefight In San
Francisco on Saturday, when he said:
"The great dailies of the country give
columns and pages and extra editions to
prizefighting. The subject overshadows
other topics In the news. If the big
papers would not advertise the fights,
there would not be any of them."
In almost the same words, Mr. Russell
called attention to the situation the week
before "In Seattle. To th sxillmnt ex
pressed by the Governor of California,
Mr. Russell had added:
"If this space was bought and paid
for, it would cost such an enormous sum
that the writer confesses his Inability
to compute It. Surely the public must
demand this kind of literature, or the
publishers of newspapersfwould not dole
It out to them in the manner they do."
