One Victim Says They Are Working
Hand & Hand The Mayor
Is Very Wrathy.
Frank Hellen's Methods as They Are Pictured
by One Who Claims to Have Been a
Victim of the Vice;
'A young man came . Into my office
just before noon and told me a tale of
woe which I do not doubt is the truth,"
aid Mayor Williams today.
"He gave the name of Porter and asked
me if there was any way I could help
him to get back to his home at Ogden.
Utah, as he did not have a cent, and his
tools were in pawn for $11. A little ques
tioning brought out his tale which is nut
at all surprising to me.
H ELLEN BROKE HIM.
"Ha said that last Monday he was in
duced to visit the Portland Club by a
newly-made friend and becoming fascin
ated with the play took a seat at a faro
tabfe. Frank Hellen was dealing. Porter
says that when he went into the place
he had $330 on his person, but that it did
not last long and soon he was broke.
"In the goodness of 'his heart Porter
says that Hellen gave him $15 and aJ
vlsed him to go up to the Oem Club, and
see if he could not play even, or at least
win money enough to carry him horn.
The poor fool instead of taking tho
money and redeeming his )ols, so ns
might go to work, took Hellen'B advice
and went up to the other gambling
house. Where he again went broke. I
could do nothing for the man, as I have
no funds at my disposal with which to
help stranded gamblers.
A POLICEMAN PRESENT.
One feature of Porter's story which
greatly displeased nta was what he had
to say about the police being cognizant of
the fact that gambling was going on
- right beforeAhelr eyes.
"He informed me .that while he was en
gaged at the faro table a policeman en

' WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 The proposed
conference at Speaker Henderson's cot
tage In Atlantic City at which Senators
. Hanna, Qusy, Ponross-and Del liver wIM
be present, is looked upon here as es
pecially significant. All of .the Senators
are commojfly rated as being very much
devoted to the Interests of the - highly
protected Industries, and. Indeed, they are
referred to generally as those upon whom
the representatives may most surely, de

Speculation la rife regarding the mean

those present. After aceptlng a cigar
from one of the gamblers the officer Is
said tq have leisurely strolled out. He
could not help but see that gambling was
going on. ,If jthls is so, a bad state of
affairs certainly exists."
THE LAW IS PLAIN.
After considerable research the Mayor
has resurrected an act passrd by the
twentieth legislative assembly in im,
amending the Portland city charter.
Section 83 of this act, which upholds the
Mayor in his every act regarding vice,
reads, in part, as follows:
"Whenever tho Mayor or any member
of the Board of Police Commlsloners re
ceives satisfactory Information that any
room, house or premises within such city,
or within" four' miles of the corporate
limits thereof, is used as a common gam
ing house, or premises for' playing within
for wager of money at a game of chance,
or if the same 1s kept or used for any
lewd or obscene public amusement or the
deposit or sale of lottery tickets or poli
cies, It shall be lawful for the Mayor or
such member of the Board of Police Com
missioners to direct the Chief of Police
or any officer of the force to enter such
house or room and arrest all persons
found therein offending against the law.
and seiie all Implements of gaming, lot
tery tickets and lottery policies, and con
vey any person so arrested with the arti
cles seised, before the police Judge.
"The Chief of Police shall cause suen
arrested persons to be vigorously prose
cuted and such seised articles destroyed,
a'hij the Commissioners shall rinse the
owner of the premies or his agent or rep
resentative to cause the use of such un
lawful purpose to cease. "
Washington,' Immediately take steps to
Increase the deposits of government mon
ey' in the national banks to the market
value of the bonds deposited. Instead of
the par value of the bonds, which are
now averaging from IS to 18 per cent
above their face value.
This action will therefore Increase the
amount of government money on deposit
In the- national banks to about J18.0O0.000.
It is more than likely that an order will
be Issued by the Secretary tomorrow cov
ering the matter.

DISCUSS FOREST RESERVE.
A meeting of the forest reserve com
mittee of the Chamber of Commerce will
be held late this afternoon. The com
mittee consists of Mayor Williams, J. F.
Watson, Lewis Russell, Adolph Wolfe and
C. E. Ladd. The question to be discussed
is whether a forest reserve, would benefit
the people of Harney County and the
state In general. The merchants of
Burns have sent In a letter to the Cham

forest reserve, as they claim It would cut
them off from the rest of the state.

Murder Committed Two
NEW YORK, Sept 24. It U more than

The police, who are doing everything

tery surrounding the murder of Mrs. Pu
litzer, are now working on the theory
that Youpns. the man accused of doing
away with her. is the same person who.
In lS9 enticed Mrs. Kate Feeley away
from her home and brutally murdered
her, literally hacking her to pieces. The
crime was committed In October of that
year and was one of the most fiendish of
any that had ever been brought to the
attention of the police of the city.
The fart that the murder of Mrs. Pu
litzer was accomplished In much the same
manner as that of Mrs. Feeley, has led
the police to suspect that the same party
Is guilty of both crimes. Working on this
theory, developments have been brought
to light which leads those employed on
the case to assume that Youhg ls the per
petrator of both the murders. The offi
cers say that Young answers very closely
the description of the man who Is sup
posed to have killed Mrs. Feeley, and the

the support of the delegates in the

the fact that Roosevelt has assumed
an attitude on the tariff question
which has not been wholly satisfac
