    MANNING WILL NOT
PROSECUTE CULLEN
District1 Attorney - Says CuIIecT Can Go ; Since
. - Kelley Has Been Released by the Police-Both
Were Implicated in Silverf ield Robbery, :.
t "I will not prosecute Matt Cullen,
Why. should he be punished When George
Kelley, the ring: leader, has been re
leased? JNo man shall ever say that I
' w guilty of prosecuting one man while
another and more guilty gpes free,"
This la the' statement of District At
torney Manning made this morning ex
plaining his action in releasing ex-Con
Vict Kelley, who, after being promised
Immunity by Detective Joseph Day, de
immunity by ' Detective Joe Day, de
Silverfleld Fur Manufacturing company,
after which he was released, contrary to
all established rules of law. He had
been bound over to the grand jury on a
-charge . of larceny, but hia release was
made before he had given bond or had
been committed to the county Jail. "
'Released by Joe Day, by consent
of Chief Hunt, 'Judge Hogue and the
district attorney," is the written release
on.th day book at police headquarters,
and it was written there: by Captain
Grltzmacher fey order of Day, - '
"Why, was not Kelley held to testify
against ' Matt Cullen?" was - asked of
District Attorney Manning this morn
lng. - - - -
"Is Cullert held?" asked Manning,
After being informed that; Cullen was
held under a charge of larceny, preferred
, against him by Detective Day, Manning
declared h would vnever prosecute the
case, as Cullen had admitted nothing.
' "With Kelley gone," said Manning,
"there is practically nothing against
Cullen, and I will not consent to, prose
cute him after what has transpired."
Later Manning said he would wait and
see what takes place relative to the
case of Cullen, .....&.
Cullen is now In the county Jail,
awaiting the action of the district attor
ney on the charge of larceny. It is a
penitentiary offense- Cullen admittedly
uiu an in ins power w woifuie yiuouw
against Kelley. Cullen was caught while
attempting w sell one of the sealskin
stolen from SUverfleld's store. Deteo
tlve Day says that .Kelley undoubtedly
planned and executed the robbery, but
. was sucn a clever criminal mat ne usea
Cullen- wherever there was danger, and
it therefore fell to Cullen" lot to dls
pose of the skins. As soon aa Cullen
went to a certain place, he was reported
to the police. Whoever the man was
who gave the "tip," Detective Day sayf
he demanded first 61 alTto know If h
would get the $300 reward offered by
Silverfleld for .the return of the skins.
Day -says he assured him that in can
the skins were returned the reward
would surely go to him.
, aowuittj was rxwmu
Cullen was then taken into custody,
and confessed his part, took the detec
tives to where he had three skins con
eealed and then brought Kelley into the
case. Kelley was located, and was ar
rested in bis room. But Detective Day
aays there was nothing In his room to
connect him ' with the robbery; neither
could anything be found elsewhere to
prove -Kelley the robber, or to. corrobo
rate Cullen a statement mat iteney to
lb Ihlaf v Tharafonb. ura Da.V. tha
proposition waa made to Kelley that tha
free. Then Kelley took the officer to a
house on Columbia street, operated by
an elderly woman. Tha skins were found
burled 1b the ground under the house.
Promptly, and without regard to legal
procedure, Kelley" was released. District
Attorney Manning himself declares the
release was Irregular, saying Kelley
should have, been committed to the coun
ty jail, after which a not true bill would
have been filed against him. Manning
blames the chief of police and Detective
Day for this blunder, but in reply Chief
Hunt aay:--:" --r ";E ,
Kelley was released by order of Dis
trict Attorney Manning. Do you up
pose for one moment that I would turn
a man of hja stamp loose without first
having the consent of tha district at
torney? It would be a most foolish
thing for me to do, and I, would "not
think of taking such responsibility upon
myself. All there Is to it Is that there
was no evidence Whatever to connect
Kelley with the robbery,"
"But Kelley was able to locate the
stolen furs," was urged.
"Well, certainly." replied the chief,
"but Kelley had been promised im
munity, and be could not," be punished,
after such promise on tha part of the
detectives, and I (guess .Kelley .has
skipped out by this time."
"As a matter of law. have police offi
cers a right to promise immunity to
criminals?" was asked of District At
torney Manning.
"They do it right along, and the courts
uphold It," waa the only answer Manning
would make.
"If kelley promised to turn state's
evidence and return the stolen goods,
should ha not have been held to testify
against his accomplices?" was asked of
Manning, but this question he declined
to answer, v f .
Xogne Bid Hot Beleas.
"Kelley waa not released by my con
sent." said Municipal Judge Hogue,
"and I cannot understand why it is so
marked on the records of the police. He
had been held to the grand jury by me,
and was therefore out of my jurisdic
tion. Detective Day wanted ma to go
and talk to Kelley. and to assure him
that in case the stolen goods were re
turned he would not be punished. I re
plied that 1 had no power to make any
such a. promise; that as far' as an offi
cer's promise was concerned, the court
might or might not cast It aside. De
tective Day first asked me about immu
nity for Kelley, and I referred him to
Deputy District Attorney Adams, who
communicated . with Manning and : ar
ranged matters. That is all I know of
the case. I had a short talk with Kel

what Is'now known of Kelley'a
connection wltlfr the case, he could, lu
all probability, have been convicted,"
said Attorney Arthur P. Tlfft, prominent
In criminal law practice. "But for some
reason; it appears, Kelley was promised
immunity, from punishment if he would
return the stolen skins. In that case; if
ha kept his word, conviction would be
practically impossible. However, .even
If Kelley was promised protection for
returning the goods, and kept his con
tract, shouldrby all meana,-have been
held by tha officers until after the trial
of his accomplice or accomplices, as tha
case might be. .But Kelley evidently
was a most clever criminal. -He did not
even turn state's evidence, for he told
nothing against Cullen, as I understand
the-case. And in spite of that fact, ha
got free, simply by turning up the
goods."
' Bar Explains. .
Detective Day and Chief Hunt frankly
admit that -within less than 12 hours
after Kelley'a release they were in pos
session of information that would have
sent Kelley to the penitentiary,
"If Cullen ' had ; Just mentioned
'Dutch to me I would have had Kelley
sure," said Day. "But, not having this
information in time, and never dream
lng of. suoh a thingwhat could be done
but to let Kelley go? If any one can
show me where Kelley could have been
convicted on the evidence we had when
we let him go, I'll give $500. I knew the
'Dutch,' Cullen afterward mentioned, and
could have located him in short order.
Then I would have had a way to find
out where Kelley planted the skins with
out promising Kelley anything, and 'it
would have .been the penitentiary for
mm." ,
"I want to see Kelley punished for the
crime, u he was thethtef, and I cannot
understand why he ' was released. ' It
looks very peculiar to me. J would sign
a complaint against Kelley now, if he
could be located, provided the facts show
him to be guilty."
This is the statement mad today by
8. SllVerfleld, proprietor of' the store
from which the sealskins were stolen.
He returned from San Francisco today.
where he has been on a business trip.
"A manwho is capableof yerpetra
ttng a robbery like that is a fit subject
for a long term of years in the penitenti
ary," continued Mr. Silverfleld, "and
that Kelley should have been released
looks mighty suspicious to me. I regard
tha robbery aa the most daring ever
committed in a Portland store. I in
tend to investigate and ascertain why it
was that Kelley was released. I sup
pose the next thing they will do will be
to release Cullen. Personally I favor
vigorous prosecution of such criminals,
but supposing I didn't It is the duty
of the state to prosecute, and the dis
trict attorney, it appears to me, ought
to have held the men and prosecuted
them. Surely if there was a desire ion
the part of the officers, Kelley, in the
light . of subsequent events, could have
been shown to have robbed the store.
Another thing, I see no reason why des
perate criminals should receive such
great consideration, even had a promise
been made." ;

, The first move made by the -stranger,
who is described as being a short, heavy
set man, wearing dark clothe and a
black mask, waa to go through the coat
and vest. From the latter he secured
a silver watch. The thief then at
tempted to go through the pocket of
the trousers, but the sudden moves made
by Mozoesky ended the operations. Just
as. the' masked visitor was going out

but It Is thought that neither of them
took effect, Patrolman Hirsch wa sent
to the 'scene of the robbery, but found
no trace of the burglar.
One hundred pennies, 60 nickels, 98

Parsons reported 'to the police thl
morning that he left his store about 9
o'clock. At the time he left the place
Parsons noticed ' a stranger watching
him lock the door. When Parsons re
turned an hour later the stranger was
gone, the door was broken open and the
small change that was left in the drawer
had disappeared.
Parsons at once started to look or
the man whom he had seen standing by
the doorway, but the only trace tha,t
could be found of him was that he had
gone into a little. grocery store near by
and purchased a dozen eggs, paying for
them in pennies.

COLLOSSAL FIGURES IN LIFE INSURANCE
WHAT DO THEY MEAN?
Tha published statements of banks,
trust companies and industrial concerns
command the attention of persons inter
ested in them as Investors or deposi
tors: the annual statements of great
life insurance companies are read by the
mass of people with all the Interest that
attaches to the mora Important news of
the day. It cannot be otherwise when
practically every family in every com
munity feels that its own fortunes are
closely connected with and dependent
upon the operation of one or more of
these tremendous beneficent associa
tions. Tha Metropolitan Life puts forth a
statement of its business in 1903, pre
senting an array of figures that shows
impressively the intimate relations be
tween this institution and the whole
people. In one item alone an amazing
fact is stated. It is that giving the
number of policies in force on the last
day of the year mora than 7,600.000
showing that one person in every ten of
the entire population of the United
State 1 insured in thl company.
In other item the figure are too
large to convey any clear meaning until
they are divided and subdivided and
made to apply to days and hours Instead
of .years. For example, this great com
pany has' paid to and Invested for its
policyholders since organisation, over
1238,000,000 a sum that will Impress
the average reader merely as being vast
and very vague. There is quick com
prehension, however, when we learn by
a little calculation that during 1903 the
amount thus distributed among policy
holders averaged 189 a minute during
every working day of tha year.
Every day in the year 859 claim wr
Jald; every day in the year more than
,000 new policies were written. At the
end of every day in tha year the com
pany' assets were mora than 850,000
greater than In the morning. Its total
assets at the end of the year were more
than f 105.000.000. It total Income for
the one year 1903 wa over 849,000,000.
Going back twenty years, we have
some comparative figures that tell a
story of almost Incredible growth. The
company's Income for the year 1833 was
a little over 38.000,000; for 1893 a little
over 315,000.000; for 1903 over 849.000.
000; its surplus since 1883 has increased
from about 3627.000 to over 310,000,000.
When we come to the amount of out
standing insurance at the end of the
year we pass the billion mark. Tha ex
act sum In 81.342.381.457.
The Metropolitan life received from
premiums and other sources during 1903
over 36.500.000 more than In 1902. Con
sidering the relative condition of the
financial market In these two years,
this exhibit is at first surprising, then
illuminating. In 1902 money waa plen
tiful; public confidence In the manifold
projects of promoter and financiers had
never been stronger; "tiroes were good."
In 1903 these conditions were reversed.
Thousands of hitherto prosperous Wage
earners were nut of employment; others
were forced to accept reduced wages;
the income of the well-to-do shrank
and dwindled: and everywhere there was
a decided tendency to retrench and to
withhold money, irom investment. lei
thl wa by far the most prosperous
year of the Metropolitan Life Insuranco
company existence.

life insurance really stands for in the
minds of .the people, it is not regaraea

promise of security; a safe shelter when

Senator J. -F. Dryden Introduced the
bill, and as the senator Is president of
a leading life insurance company, fra
ternal men-; over th country at once
scrutinized his bill carefully for. re
strictive legislation. The bill, accord
ing to Woodmen . who carried through
the campaign, purported to be for the
establishment of national supervision
over all life Insurance companies, but
hidden away in one small paragraph
was a clause which included tha fra
ternal companies In the. lottery class.
This would preclude such organizations
from using the mails in the distribution
of papers, circulars or any, advertising
matter, or even on official business. -
Though the cry against the measure
waa raised over the entire country, the
Woodmen of Oregon.' under the leader
ship of General Organizer G. K. Rogers,
made the strongest fight. Early In Feb
ruary, soon after the bill was intro
duced In . the senate, Mr. Roger sent
out a circular letter calling the atten

asking them to forward protests against
Its passage to their representative in
congress, and especially in the senate.
Mr. Rogers asked that every Oregon
camp at once call a conference and
send letters and telegrams to the repre

of Bay City, Mich., who represented
fraternal Interests at Washington.
In speaking of the bill, Organizer Rog

"It Is intended to make the postorflce

authority to issue a

that it was tacked to an amendment of

Huron, S. D., Feb. 24. Th political
pot la going to boll at a lively rat In
South Dakota this, year, if the unusual
interest manifested in th meeting of th
Democratic state committee in session
her today may be taken as an indica
tion of what is to come. Tha purpose
of th committee meeting is to decide
upon the date and place for holding
the state convention to elect delegates
to the Democratic national convention.
Two state conventions will be held
this year, but a a Republican victory
1 conceded in the state election, th In
terest of the Democrats centers almost
wholly in 'the convention which is to
name delegate to St Louis.
Today's meeting of the stata com
mittee has been awaited with Interest
all over th state for several weeks,
and a lively contest ha developed for
th honor of entertaining tha conven
tion. Among the cities which have put
In bid for th' gathering are Yankton,
Aberdeen, Mitchell, Sioux Fall and
Huron. .
Tha rivalry fdV tha convention city
la not the only contest that 1 attract
lng attention. Th Hearst boomers want
an early convention aa early as Maroh,
while those who are opposing the candl
dacy of the New York editor contend
that May will be early enough for th
convention to be held. .Th decision In
regard to the convention date will show,
therefore, th Hearst strength in South
Dakota.
Former Senator Pettlgrew will ask
to go tha national convention as a
Democratic delegate from Sioux Falls.
Th state 1 entitled to eight delegates.
Heretofore they have been selected by
circuits, there being eight judicial clr
