There Is no fugitive fund with
which to send officer to distant

and on this account R. E. Vlckery
will be brought back from GoWfield.

state agreed to reimburse it when

Vickcry on a. charge of obtaining money
under false pretenses. Therefore Joe Day
will advance it.
K.or a time -there was a first-class pros
pect that Viekory would escape prosecu
tion because there is no money at hand
to use In bringing him to Portland for
trial. He "is characterized by local offi
cials and men who knew him, as a clever
fraud. His particular style of swindling
Is .aid to have been by moans of bogus
checks. He worked into the conflcUnee

Frank Griffith, a saloonkeeper, is the
complaining witness. He caused the is
suance of a warrant, and Vlckery was
arrested and Is being held, pending the
instructions of the local police. Captain
of Detectives Bruin first announced that
he would make the trip after Vlckery, but
during the day lie changed his mind and
decided to send Staff Detective Dnj.
Day is the riches man on the head

vanced oxpense money amounting to quite
-a sum in making other long trips, and is
said to have wearied of waiting for the
Ktate to reimburse film.
Vlckery Is alleged to have cashed sev
eral worthless checks while in this city,
among his victims being John B. Coffey,

FRED I PERIS RELEASED

It I" Said Effort "Vn Made to Collect
Civil Debt by. Criminal
It is said, that the authorities at Salt
lake caused the arrest of Fred E.
Perkins in this city to collect a civil
dobt by means of the criminal process.
Perkins. .'luce coming to Portland, has
been engaged In the automobile busi
ness. He was arrested more than a
month ago on a warrant from Salt
L.akc on a. charge of ombezzlcment in
connection with the business of a
mining company. His father. K. V.
Perkins, of Flagstaff, Ariz., was vis
iting Pasadena at the time.- He cam
here in response to telegrams from hi
son and settled the ease by paying the
money. A Salt Iike officer wanted to
take the accused back anyhow, but
Governor Chamberlain refused to Issue
a warrant of extradition. Over a week
ago Shoriff "Word arrested Mr. Per
king la response to a letter from Salt
lake on a second charge, and looked
him up in the cWiity Jail. Mr. Per
kins employed Joseph A. Strowbridge,
Jr.. to attend to the case. Mr. Strow
bridge telegraphed to Mr. Perkins' wife
at Kansas City, his father at Flagstaff
and to Salt Like and received various
answers. These snowed that the em
bezzlement charge was connected with
the Farmlngton Gold Mining & Milling
Company. The names of Dr. Walllng
ford and Hartman were mentioned in
the telograms and also statements that
a deal was In progress to settle with
Perkins father for $1660, and that the
District Attorney at Salt Lake was try
ing to bring about the settlement. Yes
terday afternoon Sheriff Word sent a.
telegram to Sheriff Emery at Salt Like
containing the following message: "I
have been compelled to release Perkins."

the cigar stands do not have so many
sales as they had a few days before.

patrons come dropping back, the business
increases until It is back to its normal

"You sec that man sitting there,' said
the clerk, pointing to a miserable, discontented-looking
mortal who had his mouth
full of gum, which he was chewing with
such force that his whole body rocked
from tho motion. "When he first quit he
would not look at a cigar stand, and when
he took a seat in the lobby he always
turned his back this way. But hp Is

Intense excitement prevailed throughout
the district all day, and continued una

to be seen standing along Second street,
chattering excitedly over the prospective

avert serious trouble, and preparation
have been made to put a sudden stop to

dicted that there would be no serious
trouble, but the more restless element
looked for an outbreak at any moment,
and weapons were loaded and placed In
handy positions In practically, every Chi

Because of the trouble, a meeting 6f
the Hop Sing Tong has been called for
tonight, at which matters will be dis
cussed. A great deal depends upon this
gathering. It Is reliably stated that the
Hop Sing Tong is determined, to exact
payment of the faithless member's dues
before It will consent to drop the case,
and If he is admitted Into any of the
other societies. Hop Sing Tong will hold
that society responsible for the man's
dues. Should the money be refused, it
is said that blood will flow.
There arc perhaps 15 tongs in China

Tong is regarded as the most formidable.
It was rumored yesterday that the out

DISPUTE .INSPECTOR'S PAY
Why AVays and Means Committee
A well-Informed member of the ways
and means committee of the Council
makes the following statement with ref
erence to the salary warrants of the
plumbing inspector and his deputy:
"In the controversy over tho appoint
ment of the plumbing inspector between
the Council and Mayor Lane, the latter
contended that he was entitled, as Execu
tive Officer of the city, to make the ap
pointment, and under this contention
named William Hey. Thomas EL Hume
had been plumbing inspector under the
Williams administration, and also under
that of Mayor Rowe. In looking up the
matter the Council found that Mr.,HuIme
had not been regularly appointed since the
adoption of the new charter. An ordi
nance was accordingly passed appointing
him plumbing inspector and fixing his
salary at $73 a month. The controversy
was in this condition when it was taken
into the court, and the attorneys for the
respective, parties stipulated a. statement
of facts to be submitted, to the court sub
sequent In accordance with the forego
ing. When the matter came up for ar
gument before Judge Cleland. the attor
neys for Mr. Hey raised the question that
the Mayor had a right under the state
laws to appoint the plumbing inspector.
Up to this time It had beA generally con
ceded that the state law was invalid, and
that Judge George had so held; but on
the question being raised by Mr. Hey's
attorney. Judge George was of the opinion
that he had not passed on this particular
question, nnd consequently it was argued
before Judge Cleland, who held the law
good so far as the appointing power of
the Mayor was concerned. Up to this
time no attention had been paid to the
state law by the city officials.
"Section 5 In the state law provides
that the plumbing Inspector appointed by
the Mayor 'shall receive such compensa
tion for his services from such city or
town as may be fixed or allowed by the
proper authorities thereof.' This would
make it the duty of the Council to- fix
the plumbing Inspectors salary. This has
never been done, and consequently the
ways and means committee has no au
thority to audit or allow him any salary."
This statement from the Councilman Is
given publicity for the purpose of cor
recting an erroneous Impression wherein
the motives of the ways and means com
mittee In holding up the salaries are
Kills a Bis Cougar.
Jesse Hendricks, a logger of Holton. a
town about 25 miles from Portland on the
Oregon side of the Columbia, was In the
city yesterday afternoon endeavoring to
dispose of the pelt of a cougar he had
killed in the morning back of the logging
camp in which he Is employed.
Upon arising yesterday morning Hen
dricks noticed fresh tracks near the
camp, and calling his dogs tracked the
cougar to the forest where the beast was
treed and shot by the huntsman. The
cougar had been feeding on the carcasses
of two deer that had fallen victims to
the rapacious beast. The animal meas
ured seven feet from tip to tip, and Its
coat was sleek and thick, denoting that It
had not been suffering from lack of food.
Hendricks says that the cougars have
been waging a war of extermination upon
the deer of Columbia and Clatsop Counties
and that a bounty should be offered for
all pelts secured.
