VANCOUVER. Vub, Nov. 11. S pe
dal.) That the extradition of Ir.
Francis Stewart, who la being- held In
Vancouver. B. C may lead to Interna
tional complication la the opinion of
Sheriff W. D. Sappinsrton. who haa been
Informed that before tr. Stewart can
be extradited the State of Washington
"will be compelled to pay up back fees.
Uleged to be due to the Vancouver, B.
C judge and attorney.
Goremor Refuses to Pay.
Sheriff Sapplngton waa Informed by
Governor Hay that about a year ago a
man waa extradited from Vancouver. B.
C and the case beard before Judge
Grant. For their services the Judge
and the attorneys sent a bill to Gov
ernor Hay for $1800. This Oovernor Hay
refused to pay. alleging it waa exces
sive. However, Oovernor Hay offered
the court and attorneys $300. but this
was not accepted.
That to compel the state to pav $1800
for every criminal brought back from
Canada la exorbitant, and will have a
tendency to make that country a ren
dezvous for criminals. Is the opinion of
'Sheriff Sapptng-ton. "The prosecuting;
atorneya in the United States fight the
British extradition cases for nothing,
and the judges nevr collect es," said
the Sheriff.
"Oovernor Hay promised me to fight
this case through. I cannot see how
the Vancouver judge and attorney can
expect to refuse to give up Stewart to
roe because alleged feea charged for
some other prisoner were not paid, and
a uh la which X bad nothing to do.
The Judge In Vancouver has a life po
sition, and la aecure. so 1 do not see
why he should be paid a fee for such
Papers Sent to Washington.
. The extradition papers have been sent
to Washington for approval, and when
they are returned to Governor Hay
Sheriff Fappington will go to Vancou
ver. B. C and demand the prisoner.
Mrs. Josephine Stewart, wife of Dr.
Stewart. Is now In Portland. She haa
engaged W. E. Yates, of this city, to
fight the caae of her husband, when
be Is brought bark. Mr. Tatea will ask
that the County Commissioners here re
fuse to pay any fees In connt-ctlon with
the bringing back of Or. Stewart.
Dr. Stewart la wanted here for al
leged grand larceny and embezzlement
of $100 from the K. 8. Chemical

and general manager. The company
waa capitalized for $75,000. and oc

Demand Decreases When Mills
Cease Operations.
Effect of Curtailment of Output of
Lnmbor Is lrop From $10 to
$7.50 a Thousand for
Oregon Fir Logs.
ASTORIA. Or, Nov. 11. (Special.)
The Pacific Logging Company which
operates in the Deep River district has
closed down Camp No. 1, the largest of
the four which It ran during the Sum
mer, and practically all the TO men em
ployed there came to this city last
evening. It la expected the camp will
remain closed until after the Christ
mas holidays.
A few weeks ago the company shut
down two of Its camps, so that the only
one It has In operation at the present
time Is the camp on Salmon Creek
where about 0 men are employed. So
far as reported none of the other large
camps In this vicinity are contemplat.
(Tie ahuttlnir down In the Immediate fu
ture, but It is probable 'that some of
them at least will close for the holi
days earlier than baa been their cus
tom In former years.
As a result of the larger mills hav
ing curtailed their output by runlng
only seven and a half hours a day. toe
demand for logs haa dropped off and
the prices offered, excepting for the
very highest grades, are lower.
Kor several months the minimum
prices for fir logs has been $10. but it
ta aald that a couple oi days ago one
man who had about $.000,000 feet w
nnabla to get an offer of more than
$7.50 a thousand.
Six Sons of Bridge Victim Aid Sher
iff and Police Chief In Trac
ing Criminals.
SALEM. Nov. 11. (Special.) With the
close of the eighth (ley since the murder
of aged J. E. Roberts here on tho Re
form School bridge, after sifting chaff
from the clews it appears that the re
volver left behind by the murderers 's
the best trace and it, if anything, will
eventually lead to the capture of the
criminal However, five other clews
have not been discarded, but merely laid
aside pending the result of attempts to
aseertiln where the revolver was first
shipped and how. through devious ways,
ll finally reached Salem and dealt death.
That tUe revolver might be traced to
the youths who. the day before the mur
der, tried to buy a pistol of that caliber.
Is believed by the Investigators, but In
this connection 8heriff Mlnto and Chief
of Police Gibson encounter a setlous set
back. No one. not even the hardware
cletk who waited upon tho youths, can
Identify them, and a resident of Salem,
who witnessed the hardware store incl-d-'nt.
Is not able to describe thm. save
to (ay that neither was more than IS
years old.
As yet no defl lite answer has been re
ceived by Sheriff Mlnto to the circulars
he sent broadcast in an endeavor to find
where the revolver was purchased, and
a San Francisco firm that handles that
type of weapon for the whole Coast
seems to be unable to throw any light
vn the mystery that surrounds ths
That Jeffemon, evidently the destina
tion of Roberts the night of his death,
ought to supply a direct clew Is deduct
ed by the Investigators, but thorough
combing of the ton seems to have been
futile. That a decoy letter lured the old
man to his violent death Is deemed cer
tain by ths cjty and county authorities,
but the victim's habit of destroying all
letters received puts the investigators
at sea In an attempt to fathom who aent
the letter and bow. when and where it
was transmitted.
Sheriff Minto and Chief of Police Gib
son are not only working assiduously on
the case, but they are assisted daily by
ths six sons of the aged murder victim,
who are giving every bit of evidence
which they believe may have any bear
ing on the case.
That utmost seereer Is kept by ths In
vestigators la their probe Is significant.
In Salem or vicinity are suspected of
having committed the crime.
Illiterate Vancouver Voter Against
Suffrage, lie Says.
VANCOUVER. Wash., Nov. 11. (Spe
cial.) Saying that women should not
have the right to vote because they dlcl
not know enough, an Illiterate voter
was permitted to cast his ballot at the
recent general election.
He appeared at the election table, se
cured a ballot and asked that some
one assist him In picking out the candi
dates he wanted to vote for. . One of
the bystanders offered his services and
went into the booth with him. He read
off the names of the amendments, and
told the voter what they meant. "This
one means that If you vote yes, you
will give a vote for woman's suffrage,
allowing women to vote," explained
the Good Samtfrltan.
"Vote no; women don't know enough
to vote," he almost shouted, "vote
against that, for me."

During the year ended June 80, 1910, the
total Income of the Great Northern Rail
way on all of Its lines was t64.G0O.O0O,
while in Washington its income was 19,
W2.882.6S, according to the report filed
with the Washington Railroad Commis
sion. The operating expenses of the entire
ine of the Great Northern during that
period wero 3S, 818,09, while In Washing
ton the operating expenses were $7,003,-
000.46, showing that the relation of oper-
atlng expenses to the income in Washing'
ton was 73.38 per cent, while for the en
tire line It was only 60.53 per cent.
The dlfferenoe between state and Inter
state ercentage Is easily explained when
the Wellington disaster. In which two
Great Northern trains were completely
wrecked and about 100 lives were lost, is
taken into consideration. Earnings in
Washington show an Increase of about
$2,000,000 for the Great Northern over the
year preceding, that is in the State of
Washington. The Northern Pacific, on
the other hand. Jumped only about $1,000,-
000, but the Great Northern this year
Included In Its report the Income of all
of Its subsidiary companies.
It is shown in the report of the North
ern Pacific Railroad, covering the same
period of the Great Northern, that the
earnings In Washington were $22,263,
49ti.&4, while the operating expenses were
S14.21&.742.08, the ratio being 63.89 per cent.
On the entire line the- Income was $74,
r25,O01. ' the operating expenses $45,987,000
and the ratio 61.71 per cent. The report
Ehows that the Northern Pacific depre
elation Included the operating equipment.
which, omitted; would reduce the ratio of
the earnings to about GO per cent.
Interstate Business Large.
The report of the Great Northern shows
that that company hauled 1,724.812 per
sons from one point in the state to an
other point in the state, the average dis
tance being 49 miles, while It carried 310,.
760 persons from some point In Washing
ton to some point without or from some
point without Washington to some point
within Washington during the year, and
the average haul on interstate business
was 165 miles.
The strictly state business hauled by
the Great Northern amounted to 1,329,-
327 tons, hauled an average of 107 miles,
while the Interstate business exceeded
the state business, the report showing
that 1.634.311 tons were hauled an aver
age distance of 243 miles.
It ts the Northern Pacific Railroad that
handles most of the travelling publlo
in the State of Washington, as the re
port shows that during the last year ths
Northern Pacific Railroad hauled 3,279.-
051 persons, an average distance of 44
miles each In the State of Washington,
while it handled 1.025,201 Interstate pas
sengers and carried each of them an av
erse of 187 miles The freight moved
on state business is 5.960.128 tons, car
ried an average distance af 70 miles,
while the interstate business amounting
to $,142,686 tons moved an average dis
tance of 255 miles.
