VICTIMS NUMBER 1000
'Rev." Gustav Holmen and Sup
posed Wife Conduct Children's
Honje and Murder Infants
Placed In Their Care.
SPECIAL, CABLE TO THE CENTRAL NSWS
AND THE OREGONIAN.
STOCKHOLM. Sept. 15. Revelations
concerning the "National Children's
Sanitorium" have just been announced
ifter an investigation by the authori
ties, which has been going on for some
weeks. It appears that the alleged
sanitorium was simply a baby-farm on
in immense scale and that wholesale
murders of babies were committed.
The authorities are trying to trace the
Rev. Gustav Holmen" and the woman
who passed as his wife. They were
the heads of the sanitorium. It was
situated on a little island in the Lilla
Vartan, to the south of this city. There
the man and woman established them
selves some years ago in a group of
farm buildings. He posed as a minis
ter of the gospel and she as a trained
nurse and specialist in children and
their bringing up. Their -ery audacity
in coming to the capital and in mak
ing their appeals to the highest in the
land made their scheme successful.
I'hey secured numerous contributions
ind especially handsome amounts
were subscribed to the building fund,
tt is true that some building was done,
nut these were in the nature of addi
tions to the farmhouse and other
buildings and did not entail much ex
penditure. Extort Large Sum of Money.
The couple advertised extensively.
It was generally understood that ba
bies orphaned or with parents too poor
to look after them were received free.
Parents who, on account of work,
found their babies for the time being
In the way. also sent them to the sani
torium. It has been discovered that
very few children were received free
and that various sums were extorted
sither in a. lump sum or by install
ments. A specialty was paid to babies
Drought by domestic servants and
Dther girls who had been endowed
with illegitimate offspring. These or
their lovers all had to pay heavily for
the privilege of finding a home for
their babes. It is calculated that in
the three years the institution has
been running over 1000 babies had
been received.
Yet only 13 babies are alive and
well. These were the healthiest, fat
test and prettiest of those received,
nd were used as decoys or show ba
bies. They were shown to mothers
ind to all visitors and their pictures
were sent out on the literature used.
The investigation was the result of the
visit of a young girl whose mother
love was too strong for her. She had
taken a baby to the place and sur
rendered it as a good way to get rid
of it. Some few days later her lover
yielded to the entreaties of the young
mother and married her. She rushed
off to reclaim her infant. The proprie
tress at first refused, but as the girl
grew stronger in her demands a baby,
one of the show 13, was brought to
her. She denied it was hers and cre
ated a scene. She saw the whole 13
and refused them as not hers.
Girl Calls the Bluff.
Then the Rev. Gustav and the
woman commenced to turn ugly and
said she would be kept prisoner on the
Island until she became tractable. The
girl replied that her husband knew
where she had gone and what her er
rand was and that if she did not return
on time he would come with the police
to search for her. The couple were
frightened and let her go. She went
at once to the police, but it is thought
she was tracked, for when the police
went to the island some hours later
the "Rev. Gustav" and his female com
panion had fled. They had secured
practically all the funds from the bank
and taken everything portable of
value. The few servants employed on
the baby farm were arrested, but after
a lengthy examination were dis
charged. They knew nothing of the
happenings that threw very much
light on the subject. It is believed
that the guilty couple fled to the
United States, or at least that the
"Rev. Gustav" went there. It is also
thought that he may have abandoned
the woman and sailed alone with the
plunder, for an anonymous letter wis
received from Hamburg in her hand
writing giving some details too horri
ble for publication.
Sixty Bodies Are Discovered.
From the servants it was learned
that 73 babies were received the last
month. The place where the bodies of
60 were burled has been discovered.
The Infants had apparently been mur
dered soon after being received and
probably immediately after those who
brought them had left the island. It
Is thought that at the first the babies
were simply drowned, but that It was
a dangerous practice, for the bodies
were washed ashore and turned over to
the police. The "Rev. Gustav" was a
6killed butcher, according to the anon
ymous letter, and some of his methods
of getting rid of the children were too
ghastly for publication.
XEW CURE FOR CONSUMPTION.
German Scientist Discovers It in Se
cretions of Deadly Bacilli.
LONDON. Sept. 15. (Special.) A new
consumption remedy which has been tried
in England has achieved the most splen
did success, according to one of the prin
cipal London physicians. It is a German
remedy, and, of course, a secret at pres.
ent. When Dr. von Bearing last Fall in
Paris told the profession of his wonderful
discovery he declared that the bacilli of
tuberculosis contained within themselves
and their secretions substances which
were Inimical and to a degree fatal to
their existence. He said he aimed at the
separation of the substance from the ba
cilli and its application as ammunition, so
to speak, for the destruction of bacteria.
With this to go upon, several German sci
entists began work, and one of them, Dr
Thamm. was successful. He sent some of
his remedy to England, and it has been
tried in a hundred different cases with,
the most wonderful, immediate and last
ing success.
The new remedy, the doctor explains. Is
administered in almost microscopic doses.
One of the first noticeable results is an

TRUST MAT PURCHASE PUNCH
Harmsworth Buying Up Many Old
English Publications.
LONDON, Sept. IS. (Special.) It is
said that Alfred Harmsworth or Lord
Northcliffe. as he Is now called, the lit
tle Napoleon of British Journalism, is
attempting to create a great publishing
trust. He already has his hooks in on
every possible kind of publication. When
ever a new weekly or monthly maga
zine or publication Is Issued Lord North
cliffe looks it over carefully. If the idea
is good and the publication looks like a
winner he issues orders for one on similar
lines to be brought out. On account of
his .numerous newspapers and weeklies
and monthlies, he is in a position to do
advertising on a scale that would cost a
competitor less favorably situated a quar
ter of a million dollars In a year's time.
Of course, with his huge staffs of editors
and artists and his plants, he is also in
a position to turn out a publication better
and cheaper than most rivals.
He is also aware of the value of old
established weeklies and monthlies, for
he is buying or securing an interest in a
majority of them. The World, Vanity
Fair and the Observer are the latest to
fall into the Harmsworth net. It is said
that Punch, the bulwark of British hu
mor, has. also gone to Harmsworth, but
this has been officially denied. The
Harmsworth Interests hav secured all
the side publications of Punch, however,
and now having secured the outworks
will soon, it is expected, storm the cita
del. With dailies, weeklies and month
lies in London and throughout the coun
try, even in Scotland and Wales, the
Harmsworth management has now con
trol f the advertising' field and owns
practically the cream of everything
printed.
It is now said that the Harmsworths
are going into the book publishing busi
ness. This will create immense havoo
it is prophesied in the trade and among
authors generally.
FINDS GOOD GLASS S
EXTENSIVE DEPOSIT LOCATED BY
WILLIAM A. BANTZ.
It Is Within 60 Miles of Portland With
Water Transportation Facil
ities Available.
Glass sand, of superior quality and in
quantity sufficient to warrant the es
tablishment of large glass furnace
works, has been discovered within a
distance of 60 miles of Portland. Wil
liam A. Bantz has located a tract of
sand glass comprising about 60 acres
in extent. It is easily accessible from
the city and is so situated that water
transportation would be available if
any development work is done.
For vpars Mr. Bantz has been on tne
lookout fcr large bodies of glass sand
but not until recently did he discover
the kind of glass sand that is practical
for commercial purposes. It is not river
or wash sand but is found along the
side of the mountain. The sand is so
rich that to the naked eye panicles oi
pure glass can be, readily distin
guished. All the glass used in t-omana ior
commercial purposes is manufactured
in the East. Inquiries regarding glass
sand have often been made in Portland
by Eastern parties, who have ex
pressed their willingness to establish
furnaces and works wnenever me nsui
sand was found in sufficient quantity.
Twentv years aeo Mr. Bantz discov
ered what he thought was rich glass
sand. He sent it to the East to have
it analyzed and received a report that
it was "not suitable. He sent more sam
ples of different sands but the re
ports of the experts who examined
them were invariably unfavorable.
Finally Mr. Bantz went East and took
a special study in glass sands and
learned what kind is suited for manu
facturing purposes.
"I have often heard or eastern capi
talists who said they were willing to
put in furnaces if the glass sand was
found." said Mr. Bantz yesterday. "We
get the glass from the East and if we
have the proper materials I see no rea
son why certain kinds of glass could
not be manufactured in Portland to ad
vantage." SLAYER OF IMMIGRANTS

Less Bruises in Rugby,
More Broken Bones.
but
OPEN, INTERESTING PLAY
Premium on Kicking and Passing
for Long Runs Penalties Are
Free- Kicks, No Yardage.
No Interference Allowed.
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA.
Berkeley, Sept. 15. (Special.) Now that
California's two big universities have de
cided to play Rugby this Fall, It is in
teresting to note how comparatively few
people know anything about the old Eng
lish game, even though it is the parent
of American intercollegiate and is being
played abroad every year. Most people
confuse it with "association," and refuse
to take any interest In It because they
believe it is a kicking game, and one
that will not appeal to those who have
watched with delight the thundering line
smashes of the American college game.
Thirty years ago Americans and Eng
lish played practically the same game of
football. In both countries, 15 men were
used on a side, the majority being for
wards. The ball was rarely seen by
the spectators, the contest being sub
stantially one scrimmage after another.
The forwards pulled and pushed, and
kicked each other's shins, and the re
sult was that the game became so tire
some that those interested in ita wel
fare set about' to devise some, way of
making the sport more interesting by
opening up the play, and getting the ball
out of the scrimmage as soon as possi
ble. It was at this point that the American
O Cr O
O Cr
O O O

intercollegiate game began to develop.
starting from the feature that has caused
all the trouble in this country, namely.
that of giving one side or the other un
disputed possession of the ball for a
specified time. In England the old meth
od of starting the play is still in vogue.
that of throwing the ball fairly in the
middle between the two lines of players,
and letting them do the rest.
' Changes That Resulted.
Now as a result of the American Inno
vation of giving the ball to one side be
fore the play is started, the following
important changes resulted from the old
game:
A reduction in the number of players
from 15 to 11, allowing of interference,
which was unheard of In the old game;
mass plays, a rule necessitating the gain
ing of ten yards In three downs; laws
defining positions of players, and penal
ties for kicking, holding, slugging and
many others. '
This has not opened up the game in
America. The game is still very slow
and close, and a very complicated sys
tem of signals Is necessary before it can
be played with anything like satisfac
tion. ,
The English have made their game
open, not by any wholesale change of
the rules, but by showing that in the
open game there is more chance to score
and thus make the contests more inter
esting.
Three Substitutes Allowed.
The English Rugby rules allow no sub
stitutes, but the regulations that will be
used In California will permit three. Five
substitutes may stand on the side lines,
and the captain of the team can select
from the five, according to the position
vacated, but no more than three of the
five can be used in one game.
According to American intercollegiate, a
certain number of players must be in
the line and a certain number in the
back field, but such is not the case in
Rugby. If the captain thinks It best,
all can play forward, and all back, ex
cept that one man must be in the scrim
mage, though in practice it has been de-.
cided that the best game is played with'
eight forwards and seven backs. These
forwards are arranged in a pack, not in
a line, and the backs are arranged ac
cording to the style of play to be used.
When the ball, goes into touch, the
English game requires that it be thrown
out at right angles between the lines
of forwards. This rule and the fact that
both teams have an equal chance for the
ball in the scrimmage, puts a premium
on kicking and passing for long runs.
There Is absolutely no interference or
obstruction allowed. If a man ahead of
the ball interfers, the other side Is
granted a free kick, which may mean
the game if near the goal line.
In running down the field after kicks
an oft-side player cannot approach or re
main within ten yards of the man try
ing to catch the ball. He is on side
after the catcher has kicked the ball, or
has run five yards with it He Is also
on side when one of his own side runs
in front of him, having kicked the ball
from behind him. If he had been on
a line with the kicker, or behind him,
he would not have been off side, and
would have had an equal chance at the
ball with his opponents.
The English penalties are free kicks,
and not the loss of yardage. A goal
made from a free kick means three
points.
More Pleasure In Rugby.
There is ir.ore pleasure for the Rugby
players, for while they have plenty of
hard work, they do not have the daily
grind for many weeks, and the genuine
hard work necessary for making the
American intercollegiate eleven. Rugby
players have their work varied, with
every line-up, and it contains less of the
element of drudgery. But It Is no coward's
game. It calls for all a man has, and
it is a healthful game because It calls
for courago, without the heavy gruelling
to which intercollegiate players are sub
jected. The English game is full of interest.
There is practically no time out, hence
little delay, and the game is being played
every minute.
There are a number of new terms in
the game, and a new system of scoring,
which at first will bewilder the Ameri
can enthusiasts. A scrimmage is called
a scrummage or "scrum." A touchdown
is called a try because it allows a try
for a goal: a touchback is called a touch
down, and the term safety, is the same
as ours. A forward pass is called a
knock on.
4.A try counts three points- and a goal
after a try two points extra. A penalty
goal from a free kick counts three points
and a field goal four points.
On account of the openness of the Rug-,
by game, the English use a suit almost
as light as our track suits, but they play
on turf, while in California the game
will be played on hard ground, which
will necessitate thicker garments, espe
cially about the knees.
It is the opinion of those that know
Rugby best, that American players who
expect to find it a ladylike game will be
disappointed. As Dr. Taylor, the Cali
fornia coach, remarked the other day:
"There will be less bruises in Rugby, but
more broken bones." The development of
Rugby in the last few years, as in the
American game, has tended to make it
more replete with injuries. It has be
come more strenuous, and this Fall will
show whether or not it can supplant the
American play in the eyes of California,
college students.
DOES BOWXING INJURE ARMS?
Al Selbacb Claims That Rolling on
Alleys Spoiled His Throwing.
, Al Selbach. the Gray's left fielder,
says that a ballplayer should never
bowl to any great extent, as it will be
detrimental to his throwing arm. Most
of his bowling has been done in the
Middle West, where he has been prom
inent in the! game for 15 years, but
now he has practically given up the
sport
"Bowling was the foundation of my
release by the Bostons," Selbach de
clared, "as it abnormally developed
one of the muscles on the top of the
right shoulder, which interfered with
my throwing. The delivery of a
bowling ball with an underhand mo
tion develops one set of muscles, while
throwing a baseball with an overhand
swing puts another set of muscles into
play.
"The motion of throwing a baseball
causes the muscles of the arm be
tween the shoulder and elbow to re
lax, and when a player who bowls to
any great extent starts to limber up
in the Spring he finds It a difficult
matter, as he is partly shoulder bound.
In my case, it got so far that this
Spring I found a knot In'my shoulder
that interfered with my throwing to a
great extent
"I discovered that I was a victim of
the heavy shoulder in 1903, when I

joined the Boston Americans, and I am
still handicapped with the wing. I lay
it all to bowling, and would advise all
ballplayers to quit the alleys if they
want to preserve their arms."
After this experience Selbach has
done little bowling, and will do still
less this coming Winter. His limit
will be a few games with the South
Side Club, of Columbus, O., where he
resides. With Selbach on the bowling
team which made the tour of the
country four years ago were Johnny
Voorheis. Phil Wolf and Ernie Pater
son. This aggregation, Selbach de
clares, was the greatst bowling team
ever gotten together.
Although he is now In the minor
league ranks, Selbach is still inter
ested in the American League pen
nant race. "The race Is between Phil
adelphia and New York, with the
chances favoring Connie Mack's team,"
he said. "I think the best bet Is Phil
adelphia, as its pitching staff is far
superior and steadier than New York's.
Chicago may give the Athletics and
the Yankees some trouble, but the
White Sox aggregation is not hitting
hard enough to win the pennant"
Selbach refused to express an opin
ion on the probable outcome of the
National League race. Providence

of the purchaser, but unavailingly.
Carbine was foaled near Auckland,

the world's history possessing the rec
ord of never having lost a race and
of having left records yet unbroken. In

The society which has Just been organ

"encouraging rational dress for men in

comfortable doctrine of the discarding of
coats, but will urge that men adopt cloth

general reform to begin June 1, 197.
Promises will be obtained from as many
men as possible that they will appear on
the streets in all-white costumes, such as
are commonly worn in the Orient, every
warm day next Summer. Dr. Andrew
Wilson once said: "A man who would
ride down Piccadilly on a white horse,
himself wearing an all-white suit of

white umbrella, would attract an em
