FELT IN JAIL- TOO
Bank Holidays Prevent Trials
in Criminal Cases.
PRISONERS ARE LOSERS
Are Deprived, or Their Liberty if In
nocent and Gain o Time on
Sentences If Vltimately
Unab'e "to secure a hearing before
the State Circuit Court because of .the
bank holidays, S3 state prisoners are
being held behind the bars of the
County Jail, waiting impatiently for
the end of the holiday period. All sorts
of measures have been tried by several
of the prisoners to bring their eases
up for trial, but in vain. The law can
rightfully hold them in Jail, but the
same law cannot put its machinery into
motion to determine whether or not
they are rightfully deprived of their
liberty. Such at least has been the
decision of the Circuit Court Judges
after looking up the law.
In several cases the dates of trial had
been set and the matter of guilt or in
nocence of the accused would long
since have been disposed of. The pris
oners are the losers, regardless of the
possible outcome of their trials, for
If found guilty the time now being
served would bring them nearer the
date of release, while, if innocent, they
are serving out an ordinary County
Jail term awaiting the end of the holi
days. The predicament has caused endless
complaint among the 33 men, but has
had at least one beneficial effect that
of causing three men to try to escape
Inaction by admitting their guilt and
saying they would go into court, plead
guilty and take their medicine without
a murmur, provided the court would
only sit for them. The court, however,
could not consider any such offer.
The first of these prisoners to admit
his guilt was M. F. Goldsmith, accused
of having embezzled several hundred
dollars from Big Stchel. He was bound
over to the grand Jury September 25,
and was to have been tried about the
date Governor Chamberlain proclaimed
the first bank holiday. Several days
ago ho sent for County Jailor Beattie
and said ho was ready to go into court
and plead guilty, provided his trial
be delayed no longer.
Yesterday two more prisoners an
nounced their willingness to plead
guilty under the stress of continued
confinement. These two, Joe Bokoskl
and John Crawford, were held to the
grand jury from the Municipal Court
two weeks ago on a charge of having
knifed a drunken man. The evidence
pgalnst them was not strong and some
doubt exists as to whether they would
have been convicted. Both had de
nied any knowledge of the cutting.
Their confession yesterday was ab
ject. They did stab the man and they
were willing to admit in court, pro
vided they might get a minimum sen
tence and begin serving time. They
had heard the rumors abroad in the
jail that the holidays are to last sev
eral months and thought it better to
spend that time serving out a sentence
rather than take any chances. This
rumor was started in the jail by pris
oners already serving time there and
doubtless for the purpose of amusing
themselves at the expense of those
BKARD MILL MAKE A TKST
Jicnles Power of Magistrate to Coiu
I mil Hint for Trial.
The power of the Municipal Court to
hold prisoners to the State Circuit Court
for trial during the bank holidays is to
be tested. Myron Beard, held for wife
heating after a hearing before Judge
Cameron, yesterday forenoon, protests
that the charge against hira is unfounded
and untrue. He has engaged Attorney
AlcCann to apply to the United States
Court for a writ of hapeas corpus on the
ground that the court had no power to
send him to the Conty Jail to await trial
on a holiday.
Judge Cameron says that under the
law he is clearly authorized to make
commitments, and that he will continue
to do so, although the trial of no more
state cases will be had until the close of
the holiday season.
As to Beard's protestations of inno
cence, the court has views of his own,
since he was called from home late at
night recently in response to the screams
of Mrs. Beard, who lives In the same
neighborhood. He rushed to the Beard
home to find the woman had been beaten
half to death, and then caused the arrest
of the husband.
AWAY FROM WALl STREET
Thinks National Capital Should Be
Located in Middle West.'
PORTUAND, Nov. 9. (To the Editor.)
The Oregonian's editorials on he present
financial crisis have been able and very
timely, and the thinking public has un
doubtedly read them with appreciation.
They reveal a very, strange condition of
affairs and show, that even in the midHt
of plenty, and prosperity in evidence
everywhere throughout our broad land,
the circulating medium and financial af
fairs of the whole country can be manip
ulated by a few men, located in the city
of New York, for their own benefit, and
to the detriment and upheaval of the
whole country. Now that the financial
atmosphere has cleared somewhat, and
confidence is being rapidly restored, it
might be well to ask why the whole
financial fabric of this country should
be so disturbed whenever there is a
little flutter among the financial institu
tions of New York City?
There will be many remedies suggested,
and brought forward to prevent the re
currence of these stated and periodical
financial panics: a more elastic cur
rency, better banking laws. Government
supervision over trust companies. All
these may prove beneficial, and be of
great help to the country at large. But
1 firmly believe that there Is still a
greater remedy and one which will bring
with It the others In a higher degree
and that remedy Is the removal of the
National capital away from the domina
tion of Wall street. It matters not how
strong and able a man we may have in
the Presidential chair, the environment
and Influence brought to bear upon him
and his advisers cannot be resisted: and
so the bankers of Wall street and the
magnates of the metropolis will sway
the Government to their purpose. The
financial men of Wall street seem to
think that they possess an inherent right
to shape tho policy of any and all ad
ministrations, and if not successful in
this, they will manage to harass and
thwart the policy of the President or ad
ministration. They have always been
.ble to do this and will continue to do so,
as long as the seat of National Govern
ment is In their vicinity.'
The present financial situation has
brought to my mind the agitation for the
removal of the National capital, which
attained -some degree of headway during
the panic of 1S93-4, as many will recall.
The idea which prevailed then was to
remove the seat of National Government
to some location on the Mississippi River,
in the vicinity of St Louis, away from
the domination of the magnates of New
York City and the influence of Wall
street. The reason- which prompted the
movement then are many times stronger
today, as the predictions set forth at
that time have been veriftea, and at. the
expense of urjtold millions of dollars to
this Western country. There are many
good and valid reasons to be advanced
for such a removat, In addition to the
above, but the principal one, and which
Is of vital interest to everyone west of
the Alleghany Mountains, la to escape
the contaminating Influence of Wall
The maneuvers of Wall street in the
present crisis were about the same as
the tactics followed during the panic of
18S3-4. as to the manipulation of the
available funds of the country, iue
United States Treasury was called upon
for assistance, and when the millions
upon millions of gold were given them by
the United States Treasurer, they simply
locked it up In their vaults, neither did
they release any of the reserves on de
posit by the outside banks. The same
practice was pursued at this time. If
they, the New York banks, had released
the reserves on deposit by the Western
banks, and shipped the same to them
when the Government made their de
posit, then there would have been no
trouble experienced by our banks in the
West If the United States Treasurer
had foreseen, what he does today, he
may have Insisted upon such a pro
cedure, and a panic would not have en
sued in the West.
But to avoid such a repetition, the only
safe remedy is the removal of the Na
tion's capital from the influence which
menaces it and the whole country. If
such an agitation is, once set in motion
I am confident that it will be taken up
by the people of the West and Middle
West, and receive the hearty support of
everybody west of the Alleghany Moun
tains. The, removal of the Nation's
capital is bound to come, and the sooner
the better. K. A. KEMPE. '
FORM FELLOWSHIP CIRCLE
Followers or Benjamin Fay Mills
Will Study Emerson.
During Benjamin Fay Mills' stay in
Portland he has been asked by scores
of individuals whether or not he would
organize a society similar to the one in
Los Angeles, of which he is Minister
in Chief, called the Los Angeles Fel
lowship. In answer Mr. Mills has said
that he does not think it expedient at
this time to organize such a society;
but as there are large numbers of peo
ple who have become interested In his
teachings, or who desire to continue
in some sort of association study along
these lines, it ia proposed to form what
will be called the Fellowship Circle.
There will be no conditions of mem
bership that will shut out any inter
ested person, and it will not be neces
sary for any one to withdraw from his
present church or other affiliations in
order to be connected with the circle.
It is proposed to hold meetings once
or twice a week under competent lead
ership for the future study of Emer
son and other great writers and to en
gage in some philanthropic work as
well as to cultivate a social spirit.
There will be no stated dues, but the
members will contribute according to
their Interest or ability, by the week
or by the month.
All those who are interested are
asked to send their addresses, with tel
ephone number, to Mrs. Clara Bewick
Colby, editor of The Woman's Tribune,
81 Selling-Hirsch building. At the
close of Mr. Mills' Sunday evening lec
ture he will meet those who are pres
ent who desire further information con
cerning this proposed organization.
Mr. Mills has decided to remain here
until Wednesday evening, when he will
leave for Tacoma, where he will com
mence a eerles of addresses Thursday
afternoon. He will speak today in the
Women of Woodcraft Hall at 11 A. M.
on "How Can a Man Become Acquainted
With God?" At 3 P. M. on "What If
Spiritualism Were True," and at 7:30
P. M. on "Walt Whitman, the Man,"
the first of three evening lectures on
Walt Whitman and his message. To
morrow, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday afternoons Mr. Mills will de
liver addresses, for which there will
be no charge for admission, on the sub
ject of spiritual realization. Monday,
on "The New Birth"; Tuesday, on "The
Evolution of the Soul," and Wednesday,
on "How Can a Man Become Divine?"

PORTLAND. Nov. 8. (To the Editor.)
In The Oregonlan Wednesday morning it
was stated that at Its meeting Tuesday
night the Rt. John Council had some dis
cussion of the fact that we hav -proceeded
to organize our company and place our
bonds upon the market prior to our accept
ance of the gas franchise granted us on
October 22, and the filing of our HO. 000
bond, as required by said franchise. Uectlon
32 of the franchise provides that we have
30 days In which to file our acceptance,
and section 7 gives us another 80 days in
which to die our bond. Our present holidays
began . on October 2, since when
no legal business could be trans
acted, but notwithstanding we have
contracted with the Hallldle Machinery
Company, of Cleveland. O.. for more than
$21,000 worth of machinery for the plant,
and we are organizing our forces, and push
ing all matters that legally can be attend
ed to, so that actual construction of the
works may be begun and they may be
completed at the earliest possible moment.
There surely can be no objection to this.

Bull Run Problem Is Solved.
JOHN DAY. Or.. Nov. 6 (To the Editor.)
You Inquire, What has become of the
Bull Run question, and How Old Is Ann?
The former matter is being conslaered ana
will be settled finally by the bucolic peo
ples of this great commonwealth. By way
of reporting progress permit me to say thai
whereas the Idea of the present term is
satisfactory and the nam modest enough
except In Its suggestive first part, that tne
Idea and the last part of the name lie re
tained and a suitable word one that does
not make us blush to think, even, ne given
in place of the word b b . you Know
what I mean. Mr. Editor. That word Is the
rural form used In mixed society, as when
the young man from the adjoining farm asks
in owner in tne presence of the family lr
be can borrow his "Critter." There you
have it. "Critter Run." It Is not oniy prop
erly modest but instructive as well, as it
has a sort of "back-to-the-land" sort of
sound, suggesting nature, creature and
creator. It Is also mellifluous and allitera
tive. "Critter Run. Critter Run. Critter
Run." Try it for yourself and see if you
blush. Please tell us how old is Ann.

To D. O. Smith, a Tacoma detective,
belongs credit for having run down Buril
son and Covington. Shortly after the
atrocious butchery of Mrs. Covington two
men applied to the master of the sailing
schooner Henry Sailing for berths. They
got them, and thereafter until trie
schooner lifted anchor stayed closely to
their lodgings. Both were cigarette
fiends, however, and sent out for a large
quantity of tobacco and paper. The fact
that they were inveterate cigarette smok
ers composed part of the published de
scription, so when Smith heard of the
purchase, which was after the Henry
Sailing went out. he proceeded to get full
descriptions of the men who had secured
berths The descriptions tallied so ex
actly that little doubt is left of the
whereabouts of the much -wanted pair.
. The two were booked as Jack Ed

Sailing will reach Valparaiso about
December 1. The American Consul has
been cabled, and Chilean officers await

warning that must not be ignored.
Those sharp twinges In the back, those
stab-like pains that follow any sudden
twist or turn, are simple signs of hid
den danger In the kidneys.
No trouble starts more easily, gains
ground more rapidly, nor proves more
often fatal than any .disorder of the
kidneys. All the outward appearances
of health may remain until a terrible
disease has taken root
It is best to learn the duties of the
kidneys, to watch for early signs of
trouble, and to correct any Irregularity
before Its serious stage begins.
The blood goes to the kidneys In an
Incessant stream, to be cleared of poi
son and relieved of surplus water.
This Is passed off by the kidneys in the
urine. It is the retention of poison in
kidney trouble that breeds fatal dis

any uneasiness, lameness or pain In
the back, the moment the urine shows
Irregularity, either In Its appearance,
or in the quantity or number of the
passages, begin with Doan'i Kidney
Pills. This remedy has been curing
kidney troubles for seventy-six years,
and never yet has failed to give relief.
If taken In time. It cures the kidneys.

Fifty thousand people have testified
to the worth of Doan's Kidney Pills.
Here's a home case.
Mrs. A. S. Cummings. of 244 Clack
amas street, Portland, Or., says: "Kid
ney complaint and backache clung to
me for a long time and often I suffered
very severe attacks of it. Sometimes
it was a dull, heavy aching over the
kic'neys. and again sharp, acute pain In
the small of the back. The kidney se
cretions passed too frequently and oft
en with pain. I had tried several rem
edies with poor results, and was finally
induced to use Doan's Kidney Pills.
This remodv helped me very quickly,
and continuing their use I soon found
relief from .the aches and pains and
the action of the kidney secretions was
also strengthened to a great extent. I
recommended Doan's Kidney Pills in
our papers three years ago. I am al
ways pleased to say a good word for
this remedy and am glad of this op
portunity to confirm my former testimony."
