William Barrett, alias Thompson, was
arrested in Portland in May; - .1905. in

and was held in Jail here until he was
turned over to the Baltimore authorities
upon the arrival of an officer from that
place. He has been released, after serv
ing a two-year term minus time allotted
for good behavior.
Barrett, "Fritzle" Dean and J. J. John
son, alias G. A. Houlon, forming tone of
the most notorious criminal trios in the
world, came to Portland in. May, 1905,
with the expectation of reaping a rich
harvest during the Lewis and Clark Ex
position. Fortune was againstr-them, how
ever, and their first "trick," the robbery
of the till at the Hotel Portland raths
keller, resulted in their arrest.
The robbery occurred Just about closing
time at the hotel bar. The men ordered
drinks. One quickly drank his - liquor,
slipped to the till, robbed it and left
the place, while the others engaged the
bartender in conversation. The robbery
was discovered so quickly that an alarm
was raised and the criminals were dis
concerted. The tlll-tapper and his pals
rushed upstairs and took refuge In the
corridors, hoping to get into a room and
conceal themselves or to get out by
means of the fire escapes. C. R. Nichols,
at that time employed as a special officer.
about the hotel, and other employes
located the crooks two of whom they suc
ceeded in taking captive.
Barrett escaped and it was never
known what room he occupied except
tnat ne remained at the hotel where he
had registered under an assumed name.
When he left the place in the morning.
he was followed, but dodged the'
shadow" and managed to get as far as
the United States National Bank,' Third
and Oak streets, where he was
recognized as a criminal by a negro
employe. Detective Dan Welner was
summoned and arrested Barrett.
xue prompt arrest or tne noted trio
discouraged not only them, but many
other expert criminals throughout - the
country, the police stated, and as a result
the city was free from crimes of a sensa
tional nature during the fair.
Leishinan Puts Porte in the Hole.
CONSTANTINOPLE. April HWAmbas-
sador Leishman has made a new move in
the American school question by which he
has Dlaced the Porte In tne awkward po

withstanding the formal promises and
pledges of His Majesty that a satisfac

would be arranged, the Porte has utterly
failed to carry out the imperial assur

thus holding the Porte responsible for the

here as being very adroit. Even. Turkish
circles admit that It places the govern
