FELIX LIKES UNCLE'S POLICY

"This refined malice of the American
newspapers Is very displeasing. " said
General Felix Diaz, the famous Mej
lean soldier and politician, who ar
rived In Portland yesterday.
The General speaks little English,
and that little with difficulty, so the
term "refined malice," coming from
this "refined" Mexican, must be consid
ered mighty choice diction.
In some parts of California, Diaz ad
mitted, this malice was not so reflnedly
refined. This was particularly true In
Los. Angeles, where the Diaz party was
the object of a hostile demonstration
on the part of sympathizers of the late
Francisco I. Madero.
So tho General is a little suspicious
of all persons who try to approach him.
lie is as coy as a ueoutante In the pres
ence of Americans of any sort, and es
pecially shy about newspaper men.
Although the General Is able to con
verse in English, he gains both time
and satisfaction by speakingi through
an interpreter, who almost Invariably
is Jose Romero, his accomplished sec
retary. Dlaa Confident of Election.
The burden of his conversation as he
sat In the parlor of his suite at the
Multnomah Hotel last night was a com
plaint against the newspapers of Cali
fornia, which, he says, have grievously
misquoted him In the last fe- days, and
his plans for rehabilitating the fortunes
of his country, of which Tie Is confident
he will bo elected President on Jiovem
ber IS, next.
"I like newspapers," he said, "ana
think they are great factors In advanc
ing the cause of civilization, and as a
general thing I try to be friendly with
the newspaper boys. But down in Cali
fornia they changed nearly everything
that I said, so I have been compelled to
cease speaking for publication. You
know they said that I said things that
1 didn't say at all and things that I did
say they never said anthing about.
"We don't like to be discourteous:
but we must guard ourselves against
The General hopes to be away from
Mexico only long enough to go to Japan
and convey to the people of that coun

Of course, he insists that his visit
to Japan is far no other purpose. He
laughs at the idea that it has a po
"Until I am informed officially that
Mr. Llnd will not be favorably received
in Mexico I don't want to talk about
It." he said, in response to a question
concerning the report that' President
Wilson's personal representative to
Mexico City would be persona non
grata to the Huerta government. He
implied his utter lack of confidence
in American press reports when he
said that he knew nothing of the Lind
Huerta affair excepting what he had
read in the papers.
General Diaz styles himself a "pro
gressive" in Mexican politics, but he
hastens to explain through his secre
tary that his ideas of progresslvelsm
do not coincide with those held by
"your Mr. Roosevelt." He is well posted
on the political affairs of the United
"The General's election will remove
all cause for disturbance," assured the
faithful -Senor Romero. "The people

is sure to be i-lected next November.

to the government is not unlike that

in the same encouragement to Ameri

"Will you speak of wofnan'suffrage?"
he waa asked.

have always opposed it. The church has
not passed oni the subject. I have the
old-fashioned idea about the woman
and the home. I think women would
better make good mothers than good
politicians. But suffrage is certain to
come to women."

SAX FRANCISCO, Aug. 8. (Special.)
Notwithstanding the assertion of
Judge "Van Fleet that coercion, or non
coercion of the girls In the case would
have 'no bearing on the guilt of Maury
Diggs and F. Drew Caminettl, Attor
ney Devlin, for the defense, today kept
that Issue well to the fore.
Mr. Devlin,'' In cross-examining the
witnesses who saw the quartet of
elopers on their trip last March, was
careful to Inquire Into the apparent
state of mind of the girls at that time.
He drew from the witnesses that the
young women were at least not down
hearted. , .
Girls Happy, Defense Contends.
Even after the court had announced
its opinion of the materiality of the
evidence, Devlin continueoVto try to
show that the girls were happy and
cheerful. It was obvious that Devlin
sought to make the most of the moral
effeot of this testimony on the Jurors.
C. H. Waibourns, the Pullman con
ductor who had charge of the sleepers
on the train, which carried the runa
way four to Reno, swore that the
party' tickets were given him by one
roan, whom he thought was Diggs. He
felt sure of his identification of Diggs,
because, he said, the peculiarity of the
fact that two young men and two girls
were occupying one drawing room
caused him "to go back and take a

CHANCE KNIFE SAVES LIFE
Walter McRay Escapes Uninjured
After 45-Minute Struggle at 85
Feet Below Waves Friends
Tell ' of Cool Contest.
SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 8. tSpecial,,
To fight for 45 minutes sgttcit'' s
giant octopus 85 feet below the surface
of the water, striving desperately to
break the relentless grasp of the slimy
arms which held him, and at the same
timo talking over a telephone to his
attendants in a scow on the face of
the water, telling them of the battle as
it progressed, and finally to escape un
injured was the experience of Walter
McRay, a deep-sea diver, at Alden
Banks, near Anacortes.
James E. Hill, who was in charge of
the assistants to McRay, reached Seat
tle today with the thrilling account.
During the battle with the devil fish
Hill stood with tho telephone receiver
to his ear, listening to the graphic bul
letins as they came to the surface from
the man "on the firing line."
The telephones used by divers allow
the men underneath to talk to the man
on the surface, but the latter cannot
reply and the only encouragement Hill
could offer to the diver was an occa
sional tug on the signal line.
' Klnh Grasps, Then Inka Water.
McRay was engaged by the Apex
Fishing Company to examine one of its
fish traps on Alden Bajjke. At th trap
fb,-'vrater was about TS liet t . ep. Ha
had followed the lead, for, some dis
tance and was in water about 85 feet
deep, when his foot was seised In the
vise-like grasp of a giant octopus. At
the same time the big, slimy fish emit
ted a large amount of ink, turning the
water in the vicinity absolutely black
and making it impossible for the diver
to see his assailant.
Hill, who was on the surface, with
the telephone receiver at his ear, heard
a slight exclamation from the man be-
low, followed by a violent pull on the
line as the diver, was thrown off his
feet. A few seconds later McRay said
over the . telephone: "Not, keep cool.
Don't get excited. A devil fish has got
"When I heard those words, spoken
by McRay as calmly as though he were
greeting a friend on the street, my hair
stood on end," said Hill.
"The octopus, immediately after trip
ping McRay, had thrown two more ten,,
tacles about the diver, one around his
body, binding his left arm tightly to
his side, and the other between his
legs, reaching up his back. The head of
the fish was on McRay's chest.
"Almost, helpless, yet with his right
arm free, he was able to draw his
knife from his belt and defend him
self. ' Fighting at the great depth of
water and under the heavy pressure,
the strain soon told on the diver and
several times he was on the brink of
collapse. Finally the monster fish
weakened. It had exhausted its ink
supply and was severely wounded. Mc
Ray gave the signal and we hauled
man and octopus Into the boat.
Cbance Knife Saves Life.
"It was due to mere chance that Mc
Ray carried his knife when ho de
scended to repair the trap. On his
first trip down in order to prove his
contention that the traps were not
tight, he had caught a salmon on his
knife and brought It to the surface
with the knife through it. He had
thrown the knife and lish on the deck
and went down the second time with
"When almost ready for his third trip
to the bottom one of the helpers sug
gested that he take the knife with him
and get another salmon. McRay laughed
and put the knife in .his belt. If he
had not taken it with him he surely
would have been killed."
When examined by the crew of the
scow the octopus was found to have 11
wounds in his body made by McRay's
knife. He measured nine feet in

Bad Check. Finally Caught.
A crowd of several hundred persons
chased Ed Walker, 24 years old, six
blocks last night after Walker had
been arrested on a charge of attempting
to pass a bad check. He escaped from
Patrolman Croxford. The run, which

Patrolmen Maas and Holland found the
fugitive hiding in shrubbery and ar
Walker, who is said to have posed as
