BIG REWARD POSTPONED
Po-a- Xow Seeking Alleged Mur
derer of Vrur Men.
HOQl'IAM. Wash. March 15. (Spe
cial.) The County Commissioners to
day declined to post a big reward for
tha capture of John Tornow, now be
lieved to be the murderer of four, his
nephews and Deputy Sheriffs Colin
JMcKensie and A. V. Elmer, stating that
they thought It best to wait until tha
posse now aeeklng the two officers,
who disappeared a week ago last Sat
urday, had reported. The report la ex
pected tomorrow or by Wednesday at
the latest.
Sheriff Payette went before the
Board and asked that a reward of
ISO for the man s capture be poated,
declaring ha did not believe it made
any difference whether tha bodies of
the two officers are found first or af
terwards. The Commlsslonera will
meet aa soon aa the posse reports. The
state also will probably post a reward.
Humors were In circulation today to
the effect that the bodies of two men
'who bad been shot through tha heart
had been found In tha woods near tha
place where MrKenxle and Klmer dis
appeared, but this haa not been con
nrmed. The Mherlff haa heard noth
ing and no report has been made at

of tha supposed tragedy that can be

I. POLICE ARREST GAMBLERS
! Officers Find Black Jack Game In
; Labor Temple.
t'a'ighl while evWiaasIng money In
' a gam of black-jack, four men were
I -
arrested! last "night 'at' h Labor Tem
ple, at Fourth and Alder streets, on
charges of gambling. Their ball was
set at f:5, which was given by all
but one.
The raid was made by Patrolmen
Griffith and Janes. Tha men arrested
are Henry Hutrhlna, Iron worker;
Fred Johnson, painter; Aven Flemoco,
and K. Yehl. laborers.
L'ntr the pretense1 of being laborers,
tha officers secured admission to the
temple, and found no difficulty In do
ing so. Officer Griffith was disguised
with a wig. and made up to represent
an Italian. For a time they watched
the gam in progress, and after they
had satisfied themselves that their evi
dence was sufficient, they placed the
men under arrest. After the arrest the
men admitted their guilt and probably
will plead guilty.
About three months ago a similar
raid was made upon the temple by the
same officers and six men were ar
rested. For want of sufficient evidence
against them, however. the cases
against them were dismissed. The po
lice in the paat have received a num
ber of complaints about gambling at
the temple, particularly from wives
and dependents of wage earners, who
say that they are frequently relieved
of their wages in gambling games
there. The police were notified by
telephone of the game last night and
the raid followed.
BAPTIST PASTOR DEFIANT
1CKV. MR. EHKGOTT REFT'SKS TO
1IAM IX RKSIGXATIOX..
The Church, and Not Little Co
terie or Men," He Says. ".Musi .
Render the Decision."
-I don't propose to have a little
coterie of men, or a little committee,
get together and assume) they - apeak
for the church, for In the Baptist
Church we don't do things that war."
declared Rev. Albert Ehrgott last night.
In speaking of the church prudential
committee's demand for hla resigna
tion as pastor of the East fide Baptist
Church. "What trio church saya goes,
not what tho committee says. These
little commute get together and
assume they speak for the church, and
like to have It on the quiet rather
than to hare the church take action. I
beliore In democracy, and am perfect
ly willing to abide by what the whole
church decides. I will go before the
church Thursday night and state my
position, and leave It to the church
to decide what they will do. That Is
tho only honorable position to take.
I told tho prudential committee I
could not realgn until they rare me
reasons. . They will either write out
those reasons and make them distinct,
or they will have to send me away,
that's all. I cannot allow principles to
be sacrificed as easily as that. My
action Thursday night will bo deter
mined by what they write In their
charges.
To the charge of one of his members
that he attended clubs, and entered the
pulpit Sunday morning too nervous to
deliver his sermons: that he lampooned
the congregation, and that the congre
gation foil off, Mr. Ehrgott said yes
terday: "I have thought over very, very calm
ly how many Socialist meetings I have
attended since I came to Portland. In
the two yeara I have addressed only
three Socialist meetings, and In every
one of those I very carefully adhered
to my Christian principles In exalting
the Lord Jesus Christ. On the other
hand, in my preaching. In the Interpre
tation of the Scritpurea and their ap
plication to everyday life In the Inter
est of brotherhood and co-operation,
which ia another way of putting tha
golden rule, I always adhered strictly
to Bible teaching. If that ia In har
mony with Socialism, all the better for
Socialism. That's where the shoe
pinches."
TON HELD PROPER LOAD
Horse Declared to Slip Only Be
cause Wagons ArefToo Heavy.
Slippery streets are not so much to
blame for horses losing their footing
and falling to tha pavements as are
the heavy loads they are compelled to
haul, according to a statement made
yesterday by Alex Donaldson, superin
tendent of the street-cleaning depart
ment. He said ha will recommend an
ordinance making the maximum load
for one horse one ton in any direction.
"One ton at a time Is all any horse
should be made to haul." said Mr. Don
aldson. "Proper shoes and proper loads
are the things that will solve the slip
ping problem. My men drive heavy
flashers and aweepera day and night
ever the pavementa and never does a
horse fall. Why? Because we have
them properly shod and their loads
regulated. I shall recommend an or
dinance to limit the load of a horse to
one ton."

tains.
"We have come down here to tell
you." lie said, "that we are going to
increase the production of livestock In
the Inland Empire until the industrial
concerns of Portland will be kept busy
continually transforming our products
Into food for the world."
U. E. Crum. of Lewlston, reiterated
the thanks expressed to Tom Richard
son for his activity In organisation of

man car. reading tha paper. I always
say. Ood bless the railroads.' " v
He said Asotin haa the only ship

"Men have become convinced," be
said, "that city building Is not the thing
to be desired In the development of a
new country. We have bullded our
cities, and now It is necessary to build
the country. Give more attention to
the producer. The man who enjoys
the luxury of the city should be will
ing to pay whatever price the producer
may ask.
"Idaho won three first prises In the
cattle championship today. The grand
champion of the show was an Idaho
animal, fed and exhibited by tha Idaho

ters addressed to the. late H. O. Have
meyer, ex-president of the American
Sugar Refining Company, were put in
evidence yesterday at the trial of the
Indicted directors and officers of the
