A more than average crowd at the
Oxford grounds witnessed a worth
while game Sunday afternoon between
McMinnvllle and the Salem Senators.
Despite the. fact that McMinnvllle slip

game settled down to a contest in
which Salem secured only one addi

three hits from a lineup of some
mighty good willow swingers. Except
for Browne, who secured a pass in the
fifth inning, Cole allowed no favors,
striking out 16 batsmen.

Koser To Drop
Sum A. Koser, deputy secretary of
state for the pnst eight years, Is ex
pected to drop the "deputy" from his
title and become secretary of state of
Oregon on June 1, under the agree
ment contained In a statement Issued
toy Governor Ooott last Janunry to
the eftect that he would resign the
secretaryship himself and appoint as
his successor the republican nominee
tor the office, .
Although Governor Olrott has stat
d hertofore that he probably would
await the official canvass of the prim
wry vote before taking any action,
Kozer's enormous lead over all other
candidates for the office and the fact
that his nomination Is conceded with
out question, it la believed, will prompt
the governor to take the action neces
sary to a change In the secretaryship
portfolio Immediately upon his re
turn from Stockton, Oil., for which
place he was bound today in an air
plane flight from Blaine, Wush.
A well founded rumor about the
capital Is that John W. Cochran,
Portland newspaperman and chief
clerk of the state senate for several
ssIons, will become deputy secretary
of state upon Kosor'a assumption of
the secretaryship. Cochran la secre

Eight years ago Arnstein was ar
rested in London and extradited lo
Ne wYork for swindling William E.
Shinks of Springfield, Mass., out of
115,000 by means of worthless stock.
Sentenced to two years In Sing Sing
prison, Arnstein served less than a
year. Six other members of the band
were later arrested in San Francisco,
Toklo and Baltimore.
Shortly after Arnstein's disappear
ance last Febnuijfe a federal judge
in New York issued an order enjoin
ing 600 or more banks and deposi
tories In the metropolis from dispos
ing of any money, stocks, bonds r
other securities Arnstein might have
on deposit in them. He was known to
have six safe deposit boxes in various
public vaults. According to the po
lice, Arnstein, together with his as
sociates obtained the stolen bonds and
other securities from the messengers
and runners and took them to various

trict Leaks, it seems, are taking place

Arnstein's name, according to the
police records, came into prominence
in the case last February In collec
tion with the arrest in New York of
Joseph and Edward Gluck, broihers,
Herbert and Rudolph Bunora and Ed
ward Furey, bank and brokerage mes
sengers in Wall street. He was spec
ifically charged with receiving 42,000
worth of . Crucible Steel certificates
stolen from a New York brokerage
house. -Some of the prisoners stated
that Arnstein and his alleged partner,
Nicholas Cohn, for whom rewards of
$2,500 are offered, had received from
them and disposed of more than $2,
300.000 worth of bonds and other ne
gotiates. Shortly after Arnstein's flight last
ebruary, hearings were held in the fed
eral court in New York to have hint
aljudged an involuntary bankrupt. It
was there charged that "his assets con
sist of many thousands of dollars."
A few weeks later, a New York law
yer, who said he was counsel for the
fugitive, reported he had met Arnstein
In Cleveland and that he had told him
he was "innocent" of the bond theft
charges and would surrender If bail
was fixed at $35,000. .He said Arnstein
had rheumatism and feared imprison
ment in a cold .damp cell in the Tombs
if more than this amount of bail were
demanded. He said Arnstein had told
him he had won $18,000 In a crafl
game in Cleveland and lost $82,000 the
next night in the same place.
The bond thefts, which have been go
Ing on for months In New York, took
a tragic turn In 'one case. Benjamin
