This information, coming from re
liable Chinese sources, was gleaned
yesterday by Deputy District Attorney
i T. G. Ryan, who has been making an.
.exhaustive study of the trouble.
Peace probably will be assured to
day. Representatives of the Hop SlngsT
Bow Leotigs, Suey Sings and Sun Suey
Ngs and of the Heng wo Woi, the
Chinese peace society, will meet at 2
o'clock this afternoon to hold a pow
wow over the peace terms which al
ready have been drawn up.
A year ago Yat Yow was deported
by the immigration authorities. The I
story of the reasons for her deporta
tion Is the story of the cause of the
present war. which In Oregon and Cali
fornia has involved four tongs.
ItlvnlM for Heart Scheme.
Names of all of Yat Tow's admirers
are lacking, but some of them be
longed to the Bow Leong and some to
the Hop Sing tong. The rivals for her
affections frequently got their dates
"mixed, and when one found another
iv courting .the fair Chinese maiden, his
5-jealous rage was aroused. , This Jeal
.usy led to scheming.
-y vvong uun JJecK, member ot r.ne now

of having her deported, and later fol
lowing her to China, where he could
live with her In peace. To carry put
his scheme he called Into service his
friends members of the Bow Leong I
Wong Tun Deck's scheme was part
ly successful. After much trouble he
succeeded In having her deported. He,
himself, and one or two other mem
bers of hla tong were the principal
witnesses before the immigration
board at Yat Tow's hearing. That
was more than a year ago.
Wong Tun Deck wrote to his own
mother in China, telling her to meet
Yat Yow when she arrived In China,
take care of her, and make a home for
her. Wong sent money for that pur
pose. Enemies Block Woor
The first hair of his scheme suc
ceeded. It only remained for Wong I
to watch his opportunity to slip away

rivals were on me waicn.

bis rivals had him arrested. One of
: Wong's enemies, a member of the Hop
Sing tong, was the instigator of this
plot. He said Wong Tun Deck had
; robbed him of $200 and was trying to
get hack to China with the money. He
- couldn't prove his charge, but he suc
ceeded in making Wong miss his boat.
To stop Wong, this particular ad-
J' mtrer of the fair Yat Yow had to call
Into service some of his fellow tong-
men. So he started a lot of bad feel
lng between the young brave's of the
Hog Sing tong and the members of I
the Bow Leong tong, to which Wong
x un Deck, the successful admirer of
Yat Yow, belonged.
Battle of 1913 Recalled.
Now the Bow Leongs are not strong
in Portland. Tne suey Sings are
much stronger. But all of them are
overshadowed by the powerful Hop
Two years ago some Suey Sing gun
men were killed In a war with the Hop
Sings. A peace agreement was ef
fected, but the Suey Sing highbinders
remembered their dead comrades and
always wanted to even up the score,
f Bo when the Bow Leongs had trouble
with the Hop Sings over the wooing of
Yat Yow, the Suey Sings were willing
to help them.
Lum Ching Yong had been a member
;j of the Bow Leong tong and later had
.Joined the Suey Sings.. He was a good
gunman and interested in the griev
ances of both tongs. When the trou
ble began brewing he, with three or
lour other highbinders, came to Port
land from San Francisco. Saturday

Plans for a chain of stock theaters
to include Portland. Spokane, Seattle
and "Vancouver, B. C, and perhaps one
or two other Northwestern cities, will
be , taken up today in Seattle by
George L. Baker, head of the Baker
Players of Portland.
Mr. Baker, accompanied by Mrs.
Baker, left last night for Seattle to
meet other Northwest theatrical men
interested in the proposal. The con
ference today, at Seattle will be with
Seattle and Vancouver representatives.
Mr. Baker has had the plan in mind
for some months, and the organizing
of a stock company for Spokane, under
the name or the new Famous Baker
Players, several weeks ago, was the
first Intimation that a stock circuit
was under consideration.
Spokane Company Ready.
The Spokane company opens next
Sunday at the Auditorium Theater, in
Spokane, and following the conference
in Seattle, Mr. and Mrs. Baker will
go to Spokane to witness the opening
of the Spokane company Sunday, and
to confer with. Charles W. York and
Dan- Weaver on the All-NorthweBt
For some months I have been
figuring on a stock theater circuit."
said Mr. Baker last night Just before
leaving. "I do not know that the ar
rangements can be made Just now, but
I have proposals in Seattle and Van
couver to consider. The Spokane situa
tion, as a starting point, looks prpm
ising and if Vancouver and Seattle can
be linked I have hopes cf getting the
circuit into operation."
Details of Mr. Baker's plans have not
been divulged, but it Is understood he
is considering a revolving system of
stock-company players, which would
give to every city in the circuit a
change of players once every four or
Revolvins Plan In View.
The idea of this plan would be to give
all the cities in the circuit plays pre
sented by members of the all-Northwest
company especially fitted for a
particular production. The plan would
allow a greater scope in picking plays
and give each city greater variety
during the season. This plan is still
in embryonic stage, Mr. Baker says.
Mr. Baker several years ago success
fully operated stock companies in the
principal cities of the Northwest in con
Junction with John Cort, who was then
located in Seattle; Calvin Heilig, of
Portland; Dan Weaver and the Rosen-
haupt brothers', of Spokane. The com
panies were particularly popular and
several of his leading players were
sought for New York and Chicago pro
ductions. W hen John Cort revolution
lzed theatrical history several years
ago by breaking up the so-called the
atrlcal trust, several of Mr. Baker's
stars benefited by being Introduced to
the East, where they made good and
are now appearing In new productions.
not only on Broadway, but In Chicago
and other large cities.
The fact that the war in Europe- has
left the United States with a surplus of
highly trained actors and actresses
open for stock engagement has influ

feasibility of a Northwest stock cir
