Arrests which are expected to lead to
the clearing tip of the murder of W. V.
fhappel and William Harvey In a saloon
at Twnty-nwnd and Nicolal streets
last Monday night, were made yesterday
af:ernoon when Patrolman West took
to th pollc atatlno Robert Leach, an
Kngllsh miner, and Magnus Myhre. a
Norwegian tailor. The latter Is Indis
putably Identified as tha stranger who
was noticed by many persons frequent
Ins; tho rlclnlEy of tha saloon where the
robbery occurred, for several days before
t he crime, lie had In his pocket a blue
handkerchief S'irii as was uct by the
murderer as a mask, and wore a llght

Mihre Scon Before.
tvt had seen .Myhre In the Slabtown
district prior to the hold-up, and when
he encountered him yesterday afternoon
he was struck by his resemblance to the
robber. At the time of the arrest. Mvhre
and Leach were seated at a tableMn

the scene of Monday night's crime. They

West. In full uniform, walked tip to
t'tem and placed them under arrest
They made no Inquiry as to the charge
and showed no surprise. They were
booked on a charge of vagrancy, and
were turned over to Detectives Endlcott
and Sloan, who have charge of the mur
der case.
The supposed robber who had been
seen around the saloon before Monday
right had been described to the police
as of sandy complexion, wearing a red'
dish mustache and a light cap, and bav
ins; a boll on tne side of his neck. All
these Identifying marks are possessed by
Myhre. and It Is considered established
beyond a doubt that he Is the man.
Little Evidence Against Leach.
Less convincing is the case against
Xach. but his presence In the company
of Myhre Is taken to Indicate that, if
the latter Is the highwayman. Leach is
thought to hare been the man who stood
at the door of the saloon and guarded
It while his partner was attempting to
rob those Inside.
Immediately after tha capture of the
two suspects. Kndlcott and Sloan called
In all the witnesses tiiey could find, and
submitted the prisoners to their Inspec
tion. William Lacy, of 57 Sherlock
street, who was la the saloon at the
time f the murders, said that Myhre
bora a strong resemblance to the man
who did the shooting, allowing for the
fact that he was masked. William Davis,
living at the foot of Twenty-filth street,
and Martin Futku confirmed the state
ment of the likeness.
The two suspects hate been sleeping
on cots at the Portland Commons, and
had no belongings which throw any light
noon the case except the blue handker
chief and the cap. They maintain abso
lute dental of knowledge of the crime.
Witnesses Are Excited.
The excitement of the witnesses at tha
time of the murder makes satisfactory
Identification difficult, and Detectives Kn
dlcott and Sloan refrain from saying
at this time that they have the right
men. They will be held on the vagrancy
charge until the evidence against them
can be thoroushly sifted.
Karly yesterday morning Detectives
Coleman and Snow arrested Frank Oley
as he was about to leave the city, upon
suspicion of being the murderer. He
bears a general resembln to the want
ed man. and Is being held for lnvet?ga
tlon. The fact that a partner of the murderer
held the door while he was Inside was
established yesterday by Patrolman Hen
son, who secured material witnesses to
the case and procured a fair description
of the second man.

rttr has 144 factories, employing W7.1tf4
nan. state bacteriologist, before the Port
land Consumer's League yesterday after
noon In the convention hall of the Com
mercial Club. Before the meetlnf he had
received a dozen samples of milk bought
by members of Uio leaguo for analysis
to determine the presence of dangerous
germs. He discoursed, after reading his
report, upon the results of his examina
tion and arrived at the conclusion that
the condition ot the milk of Portland,
so far as lto effect upon human health
waa concerned, is bad.
The occasion ' was the annual meeting
of the League, which has for Us purpose
the amelioration of conditions of the
wage-earning class of women and girls
and proper safeguards, for -the sale of
foods for the family.
So mo Germs Permissible.
The speaker declared that a certain
amount of germs were permissible In
t milk and that no milk was without a cer
tain number. Some states, he declared,
permit the existence of 200.000 per cubic
centimeter and when the number exceeds
that the milk waa condemned aa unfit for
human consumption. In speaking of the
examinations which he bad made of the
milk submitted he said that it was with
regret that he found so many of the
samples unworthy of being consumed In
any family. He found in several cases
numerous germs of the tubercular var
iety, but the most prevalent were the
streptococci." This germ is produced
by an udder difficulty and has a baneful
effect- The speaker gave the names of
the dairies from which he found the most
serious condition of germs and specified
the Washington . Creamery, the Carey
Sanitary Creamery, the Rose City Dairy
and Hail e wood Creamery as having the
worst samples of t&osa which be exam
ined. He disclaimed any connection with
the purchase of the samples and gave no
opinion as to where they were secured or
how. He said that he merely rec'ted the
fact ttut the bottUs when turned over
to him bore the labels as indicated.
Whle Professor Pernon's discourse was
technical and replete with scientific
terms, housewives, who compose the
membership of the League, listened with
close attention end plied him with ques
tions as to the dairies which he regarded
aa good and those which he regarded
as bad. They manifested more interest
in the names of the dairies than the
names of the bacJll which infested the
Lacteal Acid Germ Harmless.
He explained that the lactic acid
germ was not harmful and waa quite
necessary In the production of cheese,
and that It did not propagate except
when other germs first made their ap
pearance to produce the acid condition.
Dr. Calvin S. White spoke on general
conditions surrounding the consumption
of milk In Portland. He said that it
waa unfortunate that the dairyman felt
that the Investigations and the restric
tions being Imposed so aa to secure
pure milk were an attack upon and an
Interference with his business. As a
matter of fact, said the speaker, the
agitation waa bound to raise his busi
ness to the dignity of a calling which
would not only bring a good profit but
would give it a standing in the com
munity second to that of tho profes
sional man.
Milk will transmit some of the seri
ous diseases of the human family," said
Dr. White. "It has been proved that
milk will convey germs which will pro
duce scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhoid
and tubercular difficulties. There Is no
doubt that these diseases are communi
cated and they can be traced directly
to the use of milk.
"The only remedy is cleanliness in
the dairy, good breeding of the cattle.
good food and the best of sanitary con
ditions in the handling of the milk. I
believe that three kinds of milk should
be sold first, certified milk; second.
nspected milk, and last pasteurized
milk. There should be no sediment in
the bottle.
Refilling Is Bad Practice.
"Every woman should refuse to buy
milk irom wagons containing cans and
bottles, for the simple reason that the
refilling of bottles in transit is one of
the most dangerous methods to Inocu-
late the 'milk with germs. Hundreds
of cases of cholera infantum are caused
In this manner. In Oregon we have
had examined 8012 cows. Of that num
ber 130S reacted against the test of
tuberculosis. Of the latter number
727 were killed. Tet today milk condi
tions are bad; not so much from the
lack of action by the Bureau of Ani
mal Industry, as from the lack of prop
er sanitary regulation In the handling
of milk after It has left the cow. Re
gardless of this. I regard the condition

that's what The Delineator
has been in for the past three years. As a result, over two
thousand homeless children have found homes and over two
thousand motherly women have found sons and daughters.
Our idea has been to bring together the child without a home
and the home without a child. The idea has worked. In

lead in the country for selling the
purest milk."
Reports were read from tne various
officers of the league and thanks were
voted to the speakers of the afternoon.
Manning Will I-eavo Port Monday.
It is expected that the revenue cutter
Manning, which has been In the harbor
during the week, will depart for Astoria
Monday to remain a short time before
returning here for an overhauling. Slie
will take on her bunker supply In the
lower harbor. Work to be done here
consists largely of repairs and readjust
ments in the engine-room. A large dy
namo arrived yesterday and was loaded
aboard the vessel to augment her elec
trical equipment.
Postoffice Safe So Old, Record of It
- Is Lost;
A derelict of the Postoffice Depart
ment wa anchored, yesterday afternoon
when Kafka Bros., of Portland, pur
chased an iron safe which has been In
the building so long that neither the
records of the local office nor the de
partment at Washington lays any claim
to the strong" box.
It is known that the safe has been
In the Postoffice building longer than
the oldest employe can remember, and
It is believed -to have been the first
article of the kind used in Pertland by
the Government. The present Postoffice
was furnished with such articles from
a cargo which was shipped around the
Horn in the '70a. It was made by tha
Damon Safe Company of Boston, but the
year is not given on the emblazoned
front of the relic, and there appears to
be no way of ascertaining its age.
When Postmaster Merrick asked per
mission to sell the old depository, whose
tumblers and lock are eo antiquated that
they would not re9ist a modern burglar
for more than five minutes, he -was in
formed that the Government did not
know that such a safe existed. Kafka
Bros, will reduce too heavy safe to
scrap iron, and expect to realize a profit
on the J61.26 they Invested.
The most costly medicine a few years
ago was metallic gallium, which sold for

priceless gem of tha mineral world, selling
for more than that price an ounce.
