THE LEADING HOUSEFUBNISIIERS v
A sensational report reached the city
aat evening to the effect that the pros
perous little town of Westport was
being destroyed by Are. Both tele
graph wires went down early In the
evening and the telephone line was not
available, aa there Is no office at West-
port. However, an Astorlan man talk
ed with Mr. Conyers. the operator at
Clatskanle, who said trainmen on the
night express out of Astoria had told
other employes of the company at
Marshland that the fire was one of
great extent. The glare was plainly
visible at Clatskanle, having lighted up
the river for miles. Swepson Morton,
who came down from Bugby on an en
gine, was told that the messhouBe and
one or two other buildings had been
I burned. Engineer "church had brought
down the engine and Mr. Morton said
he was tof the opinion the fire was
not a large one. When the night train
arrived Conductor Richard Blew was
seen and said be had talked with a
resident of Westport aa the train came

F. W. Kepper arrived In tlje city
yesterday from Portland with a war
rant sworn out of Justce Re Id's court
- .... t . 4
ior tne arrest or tnree saiors on toe
French ship La Fontaine, which isj ly
ing hi the harbor with a cargo of grain
for the United Kingdom. The war
rant charged the men with larceny,
but the papers failed to state what
degree of the crime waa alleged. Kep
per reported to Sheriff LInvllle and
the eherlff took the special officer be
fore Justice Goodman, who indorsed
the warrant and rendered it service
able In this 'county. The sheriff and
the special officer went aboard the La
Fontaine, where they found that the
three men wanted were In charge of
a special deputy United States mar
shal. The sheriff displayed the war
rant issued out of the etate court, but
the special marshal declined to recog
nize it' He stated that he had the
three men locked up and handcuffed
on board, and that he waa acting un
der Instructions from United States
District Judge Bellinger. He eald he
believed his warrant from the United
States court Justified his course In
declining to surrender the men to the
state officials. Sheriff LInvllle saya
he did not feel that the situation war
ranted violence In getting the men off
the vessel so he came ashore and en
deavored to place himself in communi
cation with the United States court of
ficials at Portland. However,' he was
unable to catch them either over the
phone or. by wire. The special mar
shal said he had been Instructed by
Judge Bellinger to keep the men con
fined until the ship got to sea. This
case is morely a repetition of numer
ous conflicts of authority which have
recurred between government and state
officials. The sheriff yesterday con
suited District Attorney Allen and At
torney Fulton with reference to the
legal status of the matter, and both
lawyers advised him to be cautious,
as" the maritime agreement between
our government and France might
easily be violated. There la a pretty
well established belief that the prac
tice of sending down sailors In charge
of special marshals is Irregular, and
the local authorities hope to be able
to have the question settled some day
In a definite manner. It is probable
the sheriff will tomorrow receive word
from Portland as to the , Instructions
under which the special marshal Is
acting, and at that time determine up
on his future course. '
