Italian Warship Comes for
Visit Before Going to
WILL NOT REMAIN LONG
Prominent Local Italians Arrange
li Fete Officers and Crew Before
lciartarc of the Vessel
Next Tuesday. :
Shortly after t o'clock yesterday after
noon the Italian cruiser Dogall dropped
anchor between Burnaide and Steel
bridges. The craft la about the same
piie as the cruiser Umbrla which visited
the local port during the Lewis and Clark
Exposition. The Dogall is a new steel
vessel and is equipped with the latest
type' of armament, having been thorough
ly overhauled previous to being sent to
llie Pacific Station. She is commanded
by Marquis Capomazza. whose naval
rank Is that of commander. Her com
plement consists of 15 officers and 250
The warship arrived at Astoria last
Wednesday, and was to have come direct
to Portland, but at the urgent solicitation
of United States Senator Fulton, which
was seconded by Italian Consul C. F.
Candlanl and many prominent citizens
of Astoria, Marquis Capomazza decided
to remain there for the Regatta cere
monies. The sailors from the cruiser par
ticipated in the parade in honor of the
queen and other exercises attending the
annual festival at the city by the sea.
On account of the delay at the mouth of
the river, the vessel will not remain in
Portland very long, as her time in these
waters Is limited, and by Tuseday next
she will probably be on her way to Puget
Sound. In the meantime the local Italian
Societies are preparing to treat the of
ficers and crew to numerous entertain
ments, which will have to be shortened
to fit .the stay of the ship.
A committee consisting of Dr. C. F.
Candiani, Albert Ferrera, Frank Tozzl
and John Cordano spent most of last
evening in completing arrangements. Un.
less plans are altered today, there will
he a dance given In honor of the officers
and crew of the warship tomorrow
The Dogall consumed a little over 12
hours in coming up the river, which was
due to the smoky conditions prevailing
along the river. Pilot W. H. Patterson was
in charge of the vessel, and says that the
thick haze hanging over the water makes
necessary to use extreme caution
The Dogall will be open to visitors from
2 to 5 o'clock this afternoon, and all
those desiring to visit the foreign fighting
machine should avail themselves of the
opportunity today, as this will probably
be the only chance to see the ship on
account of her limited stay. The various
boathouses have arranged to run extra
launches to and from the cruiser this
BRABL-OCH BREAKS LOOSE
Big Swells From Cruiser Dogall
Causes Ship's Cables to Part.
While the Italian cruiser Dogall was
proceeding through the local harbor on
her way to the anchorage above the steel
bridge, her wash caused the British ship
Brabloch to break loose from her moor
ings at the Oceanic Dock, and had the
current been running very strong a seri
ous accident might have resulted before
a tow boat could be secured to bring the
vessel back to her berth. As It was, the
ship did not get away from the dock
and was again moored before any dam
age resulted outside of the breaking -of
The first officer of the Brabloch notified
Harbormaster Blglin of the occurrence,
and that official expressed his intention
of Investigating the affair, for the com
plainants allege that the warship was
proceeding up stream too rapidly. Pilot
Patterson was In charge of the Dogall.

LONDON, Sept. 1. An interesting test
was made today to settle the rival
merits of the Western American and
Queensland (Australia) methods of man.
aging animal pack trains. Two teams,
one from the Legion of Frontiersmen,
made up of men who gained experience
on Western ranches and In mining
camps, and the other composed of
Queensland rangers, started this morn
ing from London for Brighton, after hav
ing attached a hundred-pound load to
each of their pack horses. The distance
from this city to Brighton is 50 miles.
The teams will return from Brighton to
London tomorrow. It is not so much a
question of time as the condition of the
horses and packs on -their return. The
Legion of Frontiersmen is being organized
throughout the empire, being the first
introduction of the Rough Rider element
into the British militia.

IS MODERN DODGER
Boy Thief Rivals Dickens' Fa
HAS TOURED NORTHWEST
He Finds Companion in Portland
and Sets - Out on Career of
Crime That Captain Bruin
Chances By to Nip.
Abused by his father so that he had
to run away from home last October,
then turning thief, pickpocket, hobo,
burglar and purse-snatcher this is the
story, told last night by Alfred Hanson,
a 13-year-old boy, when arrested by Cap
tain Bruin after he had with another
boy made an unsuccessful attempt to
snatch a woman's purse in the O. W. P.
& Ry. waiting room on Alder street.
The -career of the boy, his admission
of crimes commited in nearly ten cities
on the coast, and his acknowledgment
that he knew he was doing wrong re
vealed a story like that of the familiar
character of "Artful Dodger," described
by Dickens. Harrisburg, Albany. Pen
dleton, Walla Walla, Tacoma, Spokane,
Bellingham, Seattle, Centralia and Port
land were visited by the boy, who Teaped
a harvest in each one.
According to his own story, Hanson
began when he was 6 years old by steal
ing some candy and gum from a store
near his father's ranch, on the Silver
ton road, about six miles from Salem.
After that he went further and further
Back for More Plunder.
Mrs. F. J. Shelton, who lives at Arleta,
Informed Captain Bruin yesterday after
noon that two small boys snatched her
purse late yesterday afternoon at the O.
W. P. & Ry waiting room. In the evening
Captain Bruin suspecting that the boys
would make other attempts to snatch
purses or pick pockets in the crowded
waiting room made a trip there. After
a few minutes he noticed two boys, whose
descriptions agreed with those furnished
by Mrs. Shelton, dodging between the
crowds. Presently he saw one of the
boys approach a woman who was at
that time tieing her shoes and attempt
to snatch the bag she had laid on the
bench alongside. The other boy also at
tempted to take the purse, but the wo
man suspecting something grabbed her
bag and laid it on her knees. The boys
then left, going up on First street. Cap
tain. Bruin followed them closely be
hind and soon saw one of the boys make
an attempt to steal some bananas from
a fruit stand. Then the Captain grabbed
the youthful thieves and brought them
to the station.
Hanson was closely questioned by Cap
tain Bruin, and after a few denials and
after being confronted by the Knapp
boy, who had made a full confession a
few minutes before, be told all about his
crimes as if he were describing a picnic.
All Work and Xo Play.
"My father was very cruel. He made
us work all day long and we never got a
rest," said young Hanson, "and I ran
away. I left home In October last year
and went to Harrisburg. There Dr. Dale
took me in and sent ma to school. I
stayed- with him about six months, when
my father wanted me to come back and I
decided to run away again. I took $20
of Dr. Dale's money and bea,t my way to
Albany. I began by selling papers but
shortly the Norris & Rowe circus Came
along and I and another tooy, Earl Higly,
went to Pendleton with the circus. We
worked there around the circus grounds
and then we both went to Walla Walla.
We shined shoes and got Into rooming
houses when the occupants were away.
We were there about six weeks and then
came to Portland. Here we shined- shoes
on Burnside street and pulled off sev
eral thefts of clothing. Then I went to
Tacoma, where we worked around the
ball game grounds and picked a number
of pockets. We entered a bakery there
and got several., dollars. From there we
made a trip to Spokane and Bellingham.
There we joined the Forepaugh & Sells
circus and went to Seattle and then came
to Portland. We first sold toy balloons
around the circus grounds and picked
pockets. In all we snatched six purses

Three Robberies Yesterday.
Hanson further confessed that only
yesterday he snatched Mrs. Shelton's
purse and robbed a clothing store on
First street where the two boys got new
pants, which they were wearing when
arrested. When searched several new
ties were found on one of the boys, who
confessed he lifted them from the Chi
cago Clothing store, a few hours before
The boy Informed the officers that he
slept part of the time under the Pine
street dock and the last few days had
fitted out a hole in a vacant lot at
Eleventh and Washington streets, where
both he and the Knapp boy lived to
gether. For meals they would go down
on Burnside street and eat in the cheap
est restaurants. Occasionally their meal
would consist of crackers and water.
"I know I am a very bad boy,", he
said "and I want to quit this game. I am
willing to go to the Aid society or any
where you want to send me. I know I
deserve everything I'll get."
When asked if he did not want to go
home where he could live with his
mother, his brother and sisters, go to
school and be a good boy the boy fairly
screamed that he did not want to go
back. "I would rather go anywhere than
go home where my father would get a
.hold of me," he wept as he sat in the
big chair and covered his face with his
During his confession it developed that
the boys had entered several rooms
through transoms and entered one house
in the night, here in Portland, robbing
Knapp Boy a Portlander.
Captain Bruin communicated with Judge
Frazer as to the disposition of the boys,
and the Judge asked that the boys be de
tained in custody of Mrs. Simmons, the
matron of the City Jail. The Knapp boy
did not for a moment show signs of
weakening. He talked of his exploits with
no remorse, and did not even admit he
was doing wrong. He was simply led by
the other, boy and acted as a lookout. His
parents live at SOS Morrison street, and
his father. Marion Knapp, is a carpenter.
A strange coincidence occurred In con
nection with the Knapp boy. His father
entered the police station to inform the
authorities that his son Vance was ab
sent from home-since last Thursday, when
his offspring was brought In by Captain
Bruin, together with his companion, Han
son, The grief-stricken father declared
to Captain Bruin that he had no intima
tion that his son had fallen into bad com
pany, and had no idea where he could
have been the last few days.
The boys will have a hearing before
Judge Frazer, of tlje Juvenile Court, next
Tuesday morning, until when they will
remain in the care of Mrs. Simmons, the
matron of the City Jail.
