Baker in a short etatement issued by
"Some weeks ago," he said, "an or
der was made to the police bureau to
enforce the after-hours law. Loud
protests from reputable citizens fol
lowed this order, but I refused to
countermand it. More than BOO pro
tests reached me against the enforce
ment of this law.
"The public should bear In mind
that this order was made for the pro
tection of the law-abiding element of'
the city. If the honest pepole would
rrot complain because a police official
mops them after reasonable hours,
but instead would co-operate by giv
ing the official the reasons for their
appearance on the etreets, we would
have far greaer success in appre
iendins the lawless element.
Open Doors Tempt.
Another common practice which
should be corrected is the habit of
leaving doors in homes unlocked.
Much of the crime in Portland is com
mitted by petty thieves, who when
they discover a home deserted, but as
open as the plains, walk in and pilfer
"People should not go away on trips
DTid leave their homes unprotected.
Prominent people during the last few
months have done this with the result
that their homes have been robbed
Kach successful robbery is an incen
tive to another attempt. Such people
are given wide publicity, on the eve
of their departure, through the col
umns of the newspapers and the
crooks are ready to operate as coon
as they have reached the outskirts
of the city.
'Personally, I believe that we should
have an active committee of repre
sentative men to study the police sit
uation and needs, and who at the end
of their various investigations, inform
the public as to what it might do to
eliminate crime in this city. The
police officials are deserving of much i
credit for their work, but unless the
public will co-operate, high efficiency
cannot be given in their work,"
Club Jm Suggested.
"Protect the Home" club is the sug
gestion offered by Marshall N. Dana,
president of the Portland Ad club. In
which every resident of the city
would give some thought as to how
his home can be protected against
"The Ad club at its last meeting
suggested the 'drive safe' club," said
Mr. Dana. "It was believed that the
'inscription of the motto 'drive safe
on the wind shield of every machine
in the city would serve as a constant
reminder to the motor driver to be
cautious and thus avert accidents.
"The subject of crime has been con
sidered the sole problem of the police
officials. The average citizen feels
no personal responsibility in coping
with a crime situation. An awaken
ing of this responsibility must be had
and when had must be perpetuated.
On of the first steps that can be
taken by the public is the co-operation
in enforcing the after-hours law.
A plain explanation of duty or rea
son for the average citizen being on
the streets after hours is sufficient to
satisfy the police officials. This law
is one of the best that has been de
vised to unearth suspicious characters
nd thus prevent crime. But the nub
lie must recognize that the law is be
ing enforced for their protection if re
stilts are to be obtained."

I believe that Chief of Police Jen

has an organization of several thou

ing Portland Is directly attributed by
George F. Alexander, United States
marshal to the "sentimental poppy
cock" which led to the abolition of
capital punishment in Oregon and
which he says seems to sway mem

ln?r freedom to dangerous criminals.

stolen the machine.
Mystery Is Not Cleared.
This statement, however, failed to
satisfy the detectives or District At
torney Deich or to clear the mystery.
No automobile, which could have been
used by the men, was reported stolen.
Another feature was the fact that the
automobile was not found where Ogle
testified it had been left by the three
men before they abandoned it and
took refuge in Murphy's house.

belief that there must have been a

Confessions at Variance
The story of the holdup as told
by Smith was similar to the confes
sion of Ogle up to the time of the
actual arrival at the tavern. Fol
lowing that, however, the confessions
differed and there was apparently an
effort by Smith to make his partici
pation in the holdup seem as slight
He said that after entering the
tavern he entered a small room to
the right and brought a man out
and drove him to the ball room after
which he held the people at bay.
He said that the people already had
their hands in the air when he art
rived although neither of the other
holdup men were In sight.
I then took my position pacing
1 up and down across the room," he
said, and he indicated his position at
a point to the right of the entrance,
for one entering the room, and be
tween the entrance and the crowd.
Fainting Is Recalled.
The testimony of the victims of the
holdup was that the man who held
them was on the other side of the
entrance, with the entrance between
him and the crowd. Banaster also
upheld the testimony of victims in
"I remember a woman saying she
was going to faint and then falling"
said Smith. He also said that an
other woman asked to go to the first
woman's aid. He declared that there
was a blond woman in the crowd who
said the holdup men were not going
to hurt them and that he admired her
especially for her courage.
Relative to the shooting, he said
he knew nothing, declaring he did
not know who did It. He said also
that he heard no remark made to the
ef tect that 'they had bumped

all rounded up into the ballroom it
was "Dutch," known as Banaster. who
took the money and jewelry from
th while he &nd Ol. held them
with their revolvers.
Banaster said that after entering
the tavern he leit Ogle holding the
people in the ballroom and he went
downstairs, where he encountered the
policeman and immediately held him
up. Ha said he took the revolver from
the policeman and used It during the
remainder of the holdup, sticking: his
own in his pocket. He said he had
two revolvers at the time of holding
up the policeman, but later grave one
of them to one of the other boys.
Banaster was positive that it was
while he was down stairs with the
policeman that he heard the shots up
stairs. He denied, however, any
knowledge of who did the shooting.
He also would not admit any conver
sation between him and Smith rela
tive to the shooting or any remarks
made by either to the effect that
someone had been "bumped off."
These words were nsed, however, by
one of the two, according to the con
fession of Ogle.

After they had left the tavern he
said he fell down a couple of times
on the way to the boat and he may
have lost some of the money. He
said when they made a division he
received only about $200 In money.

"What does this mean?" demanded

Mr. Collins says that from this
juncture the accounts of the affair
are confused. Mr. Marshall says he
did not hear Mr. Burgess tell the rob
ber to shoot if he wanted to. Miss
Hastings thinks Mr. Burgess did tell
him to g ahead and shoot.
At any rate, the robber fired with
out further parley. Thje first shot, Mr.
Collins says, struck Mr. Burgess in
the face and he slumped down in his
chair. Another shot went through his
heart and a third struck his thumb.
At the first shot, Mr. Peringer, who
was sitting with the door to the pri
