Government Directed to Show
Why Similar Action Should

NEW YORK, Oct. 12. (By the
Associated Press.) On the eve of
the date set for enforcement of the
federal prohibition ruling prohibit
ing: passenger vessels, both Amer
ican and foreign, from bringing
liquor under seal into American
ports, enforcement authorities today
were faced with two impprtant test
cases. One was a temporary re
straining order, granted today y
Federal Judge Hand, enjoining local
' enforcement authorities from mo
lesting liquor on board the Amer
ican steamers Finland and St. Paul.
The other was an order directing
the government agents to show
cause why an injunction should not
be issued restraining them from
interference with ships of the British-owned
Cunard and Anchor lines.

application of the International
Mercantile Marine corporation.

operating the Finland and St. Paul.
Judge Hand lat night had signed
an order directing the authorities
to show cause why they should not
be enjoined from acting against the
24 lines in the trans-Atlantic fleet
of the British-owned Cunard Steam
ship company and the Anchor line.
Franklin B. Lord, of counsel for
the British companies, said today
that his firm would await the re

Tuesday before considering the ad
visability of conferring with the
attorney-general in Washington re

One Man, Attracted by Crash, At
tempts to Take Number of
Car,' but Fails. .
A woman apparently about 60 years
old, unidentified at a late hour last
night,' was found at Sixteenth and
Morrison streets with her skull split
wide open and scarcely alive, a few
minutes after she had been either
struck by or thrown from an auto
mobile that dashed from the vicin
ity. No one saw the accident, al
though two persons heard the noise
of it half a block away and pur
sued the car.
The automobile was a small run
about, traveling north on Sixteenth
street. If it struck the woman she
was crossing Sixteenth street on
the north side of Morrison street.
Neither of the witnesses saw the
accident or the woman before they
fouVid her lying on the street.
IX M. Rodamor, 262 Twelfth street,
one of the two men, tried to get
the number of the car. H. B. Thomas,
667 Hood street, was the other
witness and he ran to the aid of
When the doctor from the emer
gency hospital arrived the woman
was still breathing faintly and there
was some slight chance of life. She
was sent to St. Vincent's hospital
and rushed to the operating room.
A thorough search was ordered
last night for the driver of an auto
mobile which knocked down' and in-
j jured Charles Eytchison, 18 years
old, 596 Bybee street, a Western
Union messenger boy, at Broadway
and Davis street. The accident oc
curred at 7 o'clock.
Eytchison was taken to ,the emer
gency hospital. His right ear was
nearly torn off and he suffered a
number of contusions and lacera
tions, but no seriou-s injuries. ,

SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. 12. Shoot
ing of E. Clarke Walker, for IS
years manager of the Pantages
theater of this city, in his office
in the theater shortly before the
beginning of the afternoon per
formance today, had led tonight to
a diversity of statements by of
ficers and business associates that
united in hardly any one particular.
A theory of murdtr, scouted by
officers of the police and coroner's
staffs, was advanced by friends and
business associates. The officers
united in declaring the death a
plain case o suicide. Dr. A. C.
Baker, deputy . coroner, said no in
Quest would be held, so evident was
the cause of death.
Reasons fo a suicide if such the
case proved to be were as widely
divergent. Chester , Edwards and
Frank Keenan, city detectives who
began an investigation, declared
that Walker had been discharged
from his position as manager only
a short time before the shooting,
and following an investigation into
the affairs of the theater. Louis
B. Christ,, personal representative
of Alexander Pantages, owner of
the theater, to whom the officers
ascribed .their information, denied
that any. investigation had been
made or that Mr. Walker had been
discharged. The police, however,
persisted in their statement that
Christ had so informed therm
According to the account of the
shooting given by Mr. Christ to the ,
police, he returned to the theater
from lunch and entered Mr. Walk
er's office and found him crumpled
up on the floor. He shut the, door,
he said, and telephoned the police
station. When the police arrived
they found Mr. Walker's body lying
on the floor before his desk, with
a revolver in his hand.
Mr. Walker is survived by his
widow and a 14-year-old son.
Business Declared Poor.
'.'The theater has, been doing very
poor business this summer," as
shown in Mr. Walker's reports, Mr.
Christ told a newspaper representa
tive two weeks ago.
"Reports to Alexander Pantages
in the past few weeks have shown a
gradual increase, however."

Bones of Saber-Toothed Cats

Found in Dakota.
By Chicago Tribune Lk Wire
PRINCETON. N. J.. Oct. 12. The
skulls of a Riant titanothere, several
sabre-toothed cats and some three
toed horses are among the additions
to the already great collection of
fossils in Guyot hall at Princeton
university. These fossils of long
extinct beasts were found this sum
mer by Professor William J. Sin

tology at Princeton, who today re
turned from a research expedition
to .the big Bad Lands of South Da

The geologists left Princeton on
June 19 and while in South Dakota
camped In the open, carrying on
their research despite many hard
ships. It was the second trip to the
bad lands for Professor Sinclaire
and the third for Waniess.
Although the specimens collected
this year are not so numerous as
those gathered on previous expedi
tions, many of them are of marked
interest and very valuable. Several
well preserved fossil dogs, the ex
tinct representatives of the present
day dog type were found. In addition
to the saber-toothed cat skulls, the

People Want to Know Just How
Mr. Pierce, If Elected, Will

Who Is going to manage Walter
M. Pierce's campaign for governor
on the democratic ticket? And who
Id boss, snyhow? There Is a differ
ence of opinion among the demo
crats. iscord has burst out with a
big "D" and It apparently is traced
to the doors of Jesse Winburn, at
the Benson. Mr. Winburn. late of
New York and more recently
of Ashland, Or., is developing
Into a problem with the democrats.
He is ruffling the feelings of some
of the boys and he has been saying
things critical of the life-long
friends 'of Mr. Pierce and their ef
forts to plant him In Governor Ol

Pierce campaign. Mr. Winburn 1
said to want to be the whole works.

There was no objection when the
man from New yorjt informed the
Pierce people that he would move
into Portland and assume charge of
the publicity campaign. Someone
had to do it and Mr. Winburn, hav
ing made His money In streetcar ad
vertising, was considered qualified
for the task.
But and here's the rub Mr. Win-
burn's propensity to run things did
not end with his contribution, his

nouncement that he would do the
He wants to take In more
territory more than the old-time
democratic friends of Pierce want
him to have. .
It was rumored yesterday that Mr.
Winburn is of the opinion that he Is
an issue In the campnign. When
Mr. Pierce says that taxation Is the
issue and many of Pierce's support
ers insist that the school bill Is the
Issue, it is not clear how Mr. Win

that isn't all.

The millionaire contributor doesn't

for the political sagacity of Dr. C.
J. Smith, democratic state chairman,
and even less for that veteran demo
cratic warhorse. Judge Crawford,
the personal manager for Pierce.
What Mr. Winburn would like,
according to reports. Is to have Mr.
Pierce get down to brass tacks and
tell the people what his pro
gramme for tax reduction Is If he
has any. Mr. Winburn was won
over to Pierce by a speech of the
latter In which he promised to re
duce taxes. The speech sounded
good and the $5000 contribution
came later, but since then Mr. Win

the democratic candidate to be spe

says he has sent for Pierce to re

to Pierce to be In Portland Sunday

things can be ironed out which need

will be considerable washing of
