TAFT'S HAT OVERWORKED
Much Furnishing. After Ixiss of Best
One. Tell on Indcrsludy.
SAX FRANCISCO. Oct. 13. (Special.)
When President Taft was on his
way across the bay on the night of his
arrival here' he lost his host high silk
hat. which the wind whisked away Into
the water. Since that time he has had
only one tile and that lias been made
to do heavy duty.
The President had half a dozen hat
ters send samples of their best stock
to the St. Francis, hut there was not
one that had the proper width of top
and curve to become the smiling visage
of the Chief Executive. Then it was
decided to stand by the one remaining
silk hat. After each tour among the
enthusiastic populaco that hat would
eome buck looking as though it tiad
been through a mill. Continual doffing
of the headgear to the cheering people
was hard on Its appearance. After
each appearance it would go to the
hands of the hat man or valet and
went through the shlnlr.g-up process.
That tile wore a very sickly air yes
terday after the parade and even after
It had had the usual polishing it did
not look new. The President and his
official family hope that In I.os An
geles they will be able to find a hat of
the proper design, so that the pressure
on t lie overworked beaver can be re
lieved. CHINESE INVOKES TREATY

A novel question In Chinese extradi

fore United States Commissioner Wil

A demurrer was filed by the defense,

The wreck, which occurred at Fort

have resulted from a misunderstand

the accident, and later returned here

At the time of their row, London had
Mulddwney arrested and Muldowney
had London arrested. London declares
that he was at a disadvantage in this,
because Muldowney was a political fac

CATTLE PRICES ALARMING
Ijakeview- Breeders Think Disease

LAKE VIEW, Or., Oct. 15. (Special.)
With cattle now higher in price than
they have ever been in the history of
Lake County, dealers are wondering
when the market will stop. Figure
for beef on the hoof run from S to 9
cents a pound. At the same time sheep
are lower In price than they have heen
in some years, and two-year-olds and
yearlings are bringing less than lambs
did a year ago. Sales are reported at
from $2.1'u to $.1.50.
Sheepmen are inclined, however, to
keep their holdings in the hope of get
ting better prices. It is declared that
the high price of cattle is because of
the infection with which some of the
stock are suffering, and every effort is
being made to eradicate the "scab" by
dipping. The affliction among herds
in Lakfe County has caused an official
embargo to be placed on the product
here until conditions are relieved. s

While Miss Shattuck was playing in

trace of the disorder showed itself. At
that time she complained of a slight
pain in her head, and a few days later
suffered from a benumbing pain In her
right arm as if it were affected with
rheumatism. Last Monday night the
same pain she had experi -nced in her
head and arm attacked one of her legs.
The congestion seems to have paralyzed
a leg, at the same time causing in

While Circuit Judse Seeks

Conflict between the executive and
the Judicial branches of the state gov

arrest yesterday at Newport, Wash.,
about 20 miles northeast of Spokane, on
the Idaho stateline, of George W.
Martin, who was smuggled out of Port
land Saturday by Deputy Sheriff
Rinker. of Denver, Colo., with the as
sistance of Detectives Mallet ami
Malonev. of this city. Rinker was ar
rested with Martin by the Newport.
Chief of Police.
It is over the disposition that shall
be made of Rinker and Martin as well
as the case of Detectives Mallet and
Maloney that Governor West and Cir
cuit Judge Gatens are entirely dis

Rinker. Mallet and Maloney have
been charged with kidnaping and wai
rant for their arrest are in the hanos
of Constable Weinberger, of the Port
land Justice Court. Discussing the new
developments in the case from Salem
yesterday. Governor West Intimated
plainlv that he would not grant the
ne.-essarv papers for extraditing Rinker
and Martin from Washington this
state. At the same time he indicated to
the two Portland detectives thsit he
would "get them out of jail as fast as
he (Judge Gatensi can put you in."
"I propose to stand firm in tne posi
tion I have taken." said Circuit Judge
Gatens last night. "Irrespective of
what the views' of the Governor may
he or what action he may take, it Is my
intention to find out whether or not
city detectives can act as tliey did Sat
urday and spirit a man outside of th
jurisdiction of my court in defiance of
law and especially after having heen
cautioned against that very action and
agreeing not to he parties to any kid
"I do not particularly blame Deputy
Sheriff Rinker who was very desirous
of returning his man to Colorado, hut
I do censure the two Portland detec
tives who assisted in the kidnaping of
Martin. Detective Maloney assured me
that he would not have anything to do
with any move to kidnap .Martin."
Added interest in the controversy
between Governor West and Judge
Gatens in their respective official ca
pacities is furnished from the fact that
they are and have been for years inti
mate personal and political friends.
Kidnaping Warrant Ready.
Information has leaked out that the
"kidnaping" was done under explicit
orders from Governor West, who, it is
intimated, stands ready to pardon
Deputy Rinker and Detectives Mallet
and Moloney, who assisted him. as fast
as Judge Gatens, the complainant
against them, can put them in jail.
Mallet and Moloney, after conducting
Pinker and Martin to some point on the
Columbia River near Hood River in an
automobile, were reported yesterday to
be marooned in the Cascade Mountains.
As soon as they arrive in Portland they
will be served with warrants for kid
naping. These were yesterday's developments
In the case of Martin. Until the re
ceipt of telegrams, late yesterday, thero
had been no knowledge here of what
course Rinker was taking with his
prisoner, but it was supposed that ho
had started directly east over the
O.-W. R. & N. At 4 o'clock a mes
sage received at the Sheriff's of
fice from the Chief of Toiice at
Newport, Wash., announced that the
Newport officer had the two men
under arrest. How the news that
they were wanted had reached so re
mote a point was a puzzle, until a mes
sage received by Captain of Detectives
Baty threw light on the mystery. The
telegram was from Leo Martin, the
prisoner, announcing that he and Rink
er were under arrest and asking
that a telegraphic warrant be sent at
once. From this the officers here be
lieved that Martin, perhaps informed
of the hue and cry after him by Spo
kane newspapers, found an opportunity
to aopeal to some officer at Newport,
and in that manner procured the ar
rest. Governor's Order Believed.
Complications bristle in the situ
ation. Warrant for Rinker is in the
hands of Constable Weinberger. Th
Sheriff has telegraphed to Newport,
directing that the men be held pending
further action. Across the extradi
tion looms the shadow of Governor
West's attitude in the issue. Without
his requisition Rinker cannot be
brought here, and as Rinker acted
under explicit orders from Wrest, it
