Lfiinoat caught -crlth the 5-year-old
daughter of J. Pfeifer In bis -arms, a. man
known to the police as Tommy Marks
managed to elnde the officers in a lumber
pile and make good his escape from a
crowd which would have lynched him
had the policemen not "been, present.
Mrs. S. B. Bunch and Mrs. Wakefield,
both living on Thurman street, saw late
yesterday afternoon a. man carrying a. lit
tle girl who was kicking at her brutal
captor and protesting most rigorously.
Immediately they gave the alarm. When
Marks saw that he was discovered, he
dropped the child and ran behind a. lumber
pile .t the corner of Seventeenth and
Thurman streets, near the warehouse of
Mitchell, Lewis & Staver.
The startled women ran for help to some
men working near by, and the men re
membering their little ones at home lost
no time In taking after the kidnaper.
Slipping In between huge piles of lumber
Marks managed to avoid his pursuers. Po
licemen Kay and Relsing happened along
and took part In the chase, but they did
no more than the workmen. The whole
community was rapidly aroused and men
and women Joined In the man-hunt.
Several times persons were positive they
saw the wanted man dart from one lum
ber pile to another, but In every case be
fore the policemen arrived at the spot
no Marks could be seen. For more than
an hour the crowd hunted through the
block, but neither they nor the trained
sleuths of the law could find the man
whom they had surrounded. At last the
crowd disbanded and the policemen came
down town to report to the station. Borne
hours later they returned to the scene,
evidently believing that the man whom
they wanted would come back and try the
same thing over again or give himself up.
But Marks preferred to stay away, so
up to a late hour last night the vigilant
policemen hod not captured tho kidnaper.
It Is almost Incredible that he left the
lumber yard while the women were bo
close behind, but In the game of hide and
seek which followed the kidnaper certain
ly got the best of the policemen.
, J. Pfelfer, the father of the little girl,
who came so near being the victim of a
brutal kidnaper, lives on Upshur street.
From the description of tho would-be
kidnaper Detective Frank Snow Identified
him as Tommy Marks, a man known to
the police as one capable of doing such a
deed without a moment's hesitation. He
wears several aliases and may give an
other name when captured If he remains in
the city long enough for the police to find
Had not the women seen Marks when
he had the girl in his arms, he had an
open field to spirit the little girl away.
Marks is described as a young man, 25
years of age, -wearing a gray suit and a
gray crusher hat. The detectives say
they know the man and will not hesitate
to arrest him wherever found.
TRAILS IN THE FORESTS
Adolph. Ashoff Says Tliey Are Tfeces
tarr to Thorough Ranging.
Adolph Ashoft, assistant supervisor of
the Cascades and Bull Run forest reser
vation, came home yesterday from the
Marmot, where he has been directing the
opening of trails for protection against
forest fires In Marlon, Linn. Clackamas,
Wasco and Multnomah Counties. Ha
went out to his home on Salmon River,
widely known as the "Ashoff's Place."
Mr. Ashoff Is a very enthusiastic moun
tain and forest man, and a member of the
Maxamas. He likes nothing better than
running over the most rugged of moun
"What wev-need," said Mr. Ashoff In a
brief Interview, "are men who have an
Interest in protecting the forests and not
men who go out for a vacation, and we
need to cut wldo, well defined trails so
the rangers can get through the rugged
wild country to the most Inaccessible
points. The main thing to do effective
work In case of fire Is to stop it at the
start, as when once It gets under way
there Is little hope of getting it stopped.
We have hardy - mountain men In the
division I Just came from. They know
their business and will do their work
well. There Is now a trail from Mount
Hood to the McKenzIe and to Marlon
Lake, the most beautiful body of water
in the world. 4G00 feet elevation. Trails
are being cut to Elk Lake, Hot Springs,
Mlnto Mountain, Permllle Lake, so It will
be possible for the tourist to reach these
"I am a crank on forest and mountains.
I am In this work largely to aid In open
ing up our most magnificent scenery, so
that our people may see what we have
right here In Oregon. I have travoled
In the Alps and In other widely-known
mountains in foreign lands, but we have
as good If not finer scenery hero in
"How would you better protect the
"By cutting more wide trails and by
getting a class of rangers who love the
mountains. Then tho rangers are not
paid enough. They get JOO a month, fur
nish their own horses and everything.
This Is too small a sum for what Is re
quired of them. They should be better
paid than that. I would cut more trials
and employ enough men to make their
work effective. A firo once started is
hard to stop until it burns itself out.
To 8 top a fire In the forest the ranger
must be on the spot, or so he can get
there at once without loss of time. With
men enough to cover the territory and
with trails this can be done."
"Is there much danger now?"
"Yes, there Is constant danger from
now on. James Branhlll, who has a saw
mill on the Sandy River, Just told me that
the lightning struck several trees In that
district and started fires, which, how
ever, did not spread. Provision will bo
made for the Bull Run reserve. I am
to see M. C Isenberg. forest supervisor
or head ranger, of Hood River, about nut
ting men in that reservation at once. We
.have good men at work where I came
from and we will try to get tho same
class out there."
