Crowd Delays Officer.
Murphy and Frey pursued the fleeing
man through the laughing crowd of
revelers on the Seventh-street branch
of the Court of Honor. The crowd,
thinking that Pinch was some reveler
whom the police were trying to catch
for a minor offense, blocked their way
and tried to trip them as they ran.
They caught up with Pinri at Sev
enth and Stark under one of the B. P.
O. E. arches. He submitted without a
struggle, and was walked to the police
"This man came In the side entrance
to the theater and asked to see Miss
Uwe," said Meyer, last night. "I
called Miss Lowe, whose act was about
to be called. She caught sight of the
caller and hurried to her mother. She,
upon seeing the ' man, sought George
6ellinger. manager of the act who, ac
companied by Emery, returned- to find
i what was wanted. AS tney approacnea
; the stranger, he exclaimed:
"I am engaged to this girl and want
to see her. What do you wantr
"Pulling the revolver out of his
pocket, the stranger shot Emery and
- then retreated out the door."
r - "That man butted into my affairs.
- It is a thing that I do not like at all.
So I bought a gun and I shot him. Sure,
' I only shot once. It was a good shot
and I think it did what I wanted to do.
? Lock me up." Pinch took his arrest
) quietly, handed over to the officers who
. searched him his revolver and a hand
' full of cartridges and laughed at the
crowd in the police station.
S Pinch, who says he is a minister, also
told of buying an automatic revolver,
for the avowed purpose of shooting
j Emery. This, he said, he had left in his
room In a rooming-house whose loca
f tlon he could not give, and had taken
. a Colt's revolver with him. when he
I west to the theater.
"She was the girl that I was going
t to marry," persisted Pinch. "When I
saw him on the stage I just stuck out
' the gun," making a movement with ex
" tended finger to Indicate the revolver.
"and the thing was done. One shot
. was enough, nice and business like."
Emery, who was hastened to St. Vin
' cent's hospital in a Red Cross ambu-
- lance, was but half conscious and bled
' a good deal. In reply to questions he
' said that he did not know who the
man was who had shot him.
Late last night' his condition was
auch that the hospital authorities
' would give out no optimlstlo state
ments. He was shot through the low
er abdomen by a revolver of 88 cal
iber and It Is thought that the lower
i intestines were cut.
Pinch wore when arrested a deputy

the doorkeeper at the theater Into al--

that in his room, whose location he
could not point out. be had a warrant

t Endearing; Notes Written.
"During last week when we were in
' Tacoma and since arriving In Portland
' Monday, my daughter received many
. postcards and letters from Pinch, each
containing endearing messages," said
Mrs. Lowe. "In these, four of which
, came in today's mail, he repeatedly
asserted that he was engaged to her
'and would marry .her. Becoming
- alarmed before leaving Tacoma, I sum
moned two detectives and asked them
- to keep watch of the man because I
' considered him insane and was afraid
for my daughter's safety. They assured
' me that we would not be troubled any
longer by the writer of the letters, ex
plaining that he had been placed in an
asylum. I never saw the man before
Miss Lowe, has in her possession a
score of letters written by Pinch.
Their contents plainly show an unbal
anced mind and support the state
ment of the young woman that she did
not encourage the author by so much
as replying to any of them. To all of
these missives, the signature of O. w.

Miss Portland's Second Reception 1912
In 1905, just prior to the opening of our great Exposition, I published the
above cut in one of my advertisements. What that reception did for Portland
most of us know. We had a general housecleaning, mud streets gave way to
hard-surface pavement, wooden sidewalks were replaced with cement, wooden
shacks were torn down and skyscrapers took their place, our population dou
bled in five years, until today, when Miss Portland holds her second grand
reception of National importance it is acknowledged by visitors from all
parts of the country that Portland is the most beautiful city on the American
Continent, and one of the most progressive, wide-awake business centers in
the United States, caused by her matchless railroad and water facilities. Oui
deep channel to the sea has been fully demonstrated by Jhe presence of that
famous battleship, Oregon, now in our port. The Oregon draws 28 feet of
water. I will now make a statement from my viewpoint, that no city or state
has a brighter present or more brilliant prospective future than has Portland
and Oregon. .
