Intentionally Knocks Over Two Differ

Willamette University's basketball
team was defeated by the Multnomah
club of Portland in a game played on
the club floor Saturday evening, the
final score being 29 to 32.
During the first half the 'varsity
boys seemed to have the sitiiat.iou un

first period being 7 to 6 in favor of
The second half the clubmen seemed
to strike a new pace, and the 'varsity
was urable to keep up. The victory
was clearly due to superior speed on
the 'part of the clubmen.
Raymond McRae, former member of
Willamette's football, basketball and
baseball team, and now one of the most
popular athletes at the Multnomah club

At a meeting of the board of direct
ors, of the State Sportmen's associa
tion, held at the Oregon hotel, in Port
land Saturday afternoon, it was decided
to hold the state shooting tournament
in Salem this year.
Both Eugene and Albany were after
the big tournament, but Salem was se
lected, because of the largest amount
of funds that the local representatives
promised would be available for de
fraying the expense of the tournament,
should it be held in this city.
The Interstate association is offering
$100 in cash and seven trophies for win
ners of different events in the shoot,
and, besides this, there is a prize of
$30 to the winner o.f the Interstate as
sociation event, which will go toward
paying the winner's expenses to the
grand Ainercian shoot. The state shoot
will be held some time in the latter part
of May.
The directors of the State Association
who were present at the meeting in
Portland were: II. H. Beach, Pnlem;

Decision of Supreme Court in Eight
Hour Case Will Involve Clerks,
Stenographers and Others.
Says Threats That He Is Jeopardizing
His Chance of Re-Election Have No
Effect oo Him.
"All employes of the state, with the
exception of heads of departments, will
bo affected by the decision of the su
prome court in the case involving the
eight-hour law against the state board
of control," declared Labor Commis
sioner Hoff today. "The impression
prevails that the case only .'elates to
employes of state institutions, but that
is i mistake, and if the court sustains
my contentions, clerks, stenographers,
etc, in all stuto departments from that
of the governor down will work only
eight hours daily, or 48 hours weekly.
Mr. Hoff construes the opinion of th-j
supreme court in tlio case in which
farm hands and engineers at the state
insane asylum were the complainants
as covering all employes of (he state.
However, another case was ',nstitutod
in order that there may be no doubt
about it.
Flans to Enforce Laws.
"Certain persons have criticised mo
for my action in this and the case re
lating to the policemen and firemen in
Portland," continued Mr. Hoff. "I
havo evou been told that I was jeopard
izing my chances for re election. Such
threats have no effect on me. It is my
business as labor commissioner to see
employes of the state, that is what I
1 ' ' . .
want to knew. But it is certainly my
duty to find out what the law means.

"I have little us9 or persons who
tell me to wink at the law, to romain

have. I would be crooked if I did this,
and I consider surh suggestions insults.
It is my duty also to have the laws
interpreted and if it is found that some
of the laws are bad laws, the legislature
the supreme court and a decision is ex
pected in about two weeks after that.
If Mr. Hoff should win his point that
the law apnlies to all state employes,
excepting heads. of the departments, it
would be necessary to create deficien

dollars to conduct the state government.
John Lytle, in Nebraska Jail, Believed
to Be Slayer of Portland Tot Near
ly Three Years Ago.
Description of Man Tallies With That
of Man Hunted by Police Fruit
lessly for Years.
Portland, Ore., Jan. 26. In John Lyt
le, under arest in Grand Island, Neb.,
for criminal assault upon a youcg girl,
which he has confessed, Detective Ser
geants Day and Hyde believe that they
at last caught the murderer of five-year
old Barbara Holzman and cleared up
a mystery which has baffled the police
since March, 1911.
Mrs. Bertha Nelson, proprietor of
the rooming house at 107 Russell street,
where the Holzman girl was murdered,
when she saw the picture of Lytle last
night partially identified him. She said
that he looked much like the man who
rented from her March 14, 1911, the
room in which the mutilated body of
the girl was later found.
Immediately following the discovery
of the crime in 1911, the police issued
circulars 'which were sent to all cities
or the Western Hemisphere. It was
in answer to this circular that Gustav
SievorB, sheriff of llall county, Neb.,
wrote concerning Lytle, who is in jail
Lynching Is Averted.
Lytle was the central figure of a
near-lynching in Grand Island, when, on
September 23, 1913, he attempted fo
assault an eight-year-old girl. Her
cries aroused neighbors, and they sur
rounded the place of the as mult, but
he managed to escape. He was caugh;
the next day. A mob quickly formed,
and an attempt was made to lynch him,
but the efforts of the police restrained
the mob.
Both John Lytle and his brother,
Ueorgo, were in and about Portland at
the time of the Holzman murder. John
admitted to the Grand Island officers
that he and his brother wore engaged
in bricklaying in Oregon City in March,
1911, whon the murder occured, and
John admitted that he knew some de
tails of the murder. Both have been
convicted of criminal attack before, ac
cording to information sent by th-3
Grand Island officers.
The bost information received by Day
and Hyde, next to Mrs.' Nelson's iden
tification, is the description of Lytle
furnished by the Grand Island author
ties and the closeness with which it
parallels the description given by Mrs.
iNelson of her lodger. '
Mrs. Nolson said that her lodger was
50 years old, six feet tall, with an ema
ciated face, and a noutral colored mus
tache. The description of Lytle from
Grand Island is: "John Albert Lytle,
alius John Agard, and other names,
aged 51 years; height, 5 feet ll'j
nehes; weight, 170 pounds; hair, brown
with sandy tint and mixed with gray;
eyes, brownish gray; a short stubby,
sandy brown mustache, mixed with
gray; wears a No. 7 hat and No. 10
shoes; is stoop-shouldered. Is by occu
pation a bricklayer and ronmiiig-houso
keeper. He has been mnricd twice.
His first wife is dead and he separated
from his second wifo three years ago."

known as Nebraska Hurry, nliiiB Iowa

Prisoners Ordered Held.
Sorgoant Day telegraphed Grand Is
land ofificrs yesterday to hold Lytle for
further investigation.
Tho Holzmnn murder was one of the
most atrocious in tho Instorv of the
Portland police dopartmciit. The little
girl, who was sent to a butcher shop
for some meat, was decoyed Into tho
rooming houso, at 107 Russell -street,
maintained by Mer. Nelson, and wan
there maltreated and suffocated. Her
body waj discovered next day, whei.
Mrs, Nelson wont to "make ip" the

was s doll in the bed. Tho room, No,
10, was rented by a man early in the
morning of March 14, and about 1
o'clock in the afternoon of the aamo
day rs. Nelson from her kitchen heard
him enter hi. room and drop a heavy
body on the floor, Thinking it was
probably a kit of tools, sho paid no at
tention to it. The man had hired the
room for one night.
Clairvoyance, mysterious "tips" and
much information of various kind, bar

alleged clew coming Thursday when

Thome of Albania Went Begging For
Long Time as no One Wanted to
Face Fierce Natives.
Albanian Girl Does not See Husband

(Berlin Correspondent of tin United
.Berlin, Jan. 21. From simple Lieu
tenant in the Kaiser's Guard at Pots
dam to King of Albania, Is the jump
that Prince Wilholm of Wied will make
late this month. It is the third rulor
that Germany will furnish the trouble
some Balkans. Germans soon will gov
ern the greater part of the Balkan coun
try. Slowly but Burely the Kaiser's
influence in the form of a chain of
German rulers, is extending from Ber
lin to Constantinople.
At Bucharest is King Earl of Rou-
mania. He is a Hohenzollern Prince of
a branch of the Kaiser's house. His
Queen Carmen Sylva was Princess of
Wied. At Sofia is Czar Ferdinand of
Bulgaria, a German Prince from the
house of Coburg. His wife is Queen
Elonore, a Princess of the German prin
cipality of Reuss. The Queen of Greece
is a sister to the Kaiser. And, now
Albania, the new nation born out of
tho throes of the Balkan wars, is to be
given to Prince Wilholm of Wied. That
leaves but two Balkan thrones not oc
cupied by Germans, Scrvia and Monte-
neirro. At Constantinople one of the
Kaiser's generals, General Liman von
Sander, at the head of a group of Gor
man officers, is reorganizing the Turk
ish army.
People Not Consulted.
The Albanian people had nothing to
Bay about being made into a nation and
still less as to who shall be their rulor.
The "Powers," whom the Greek Pre
mier during the war sarcastically re
ferred to as "real respectable old
ladies," "made" Albania into a nation
and selocted the man who shall Bit on
the newly created throne. At the start
his titlo will merely be the Prince of
Albania but there is nothing to hinder
him from promoting himself to King
in namo, which he will be in fact. Ni-
kitn of Montenegro changed his name
from Princo to King one day and has
been King ever since. Karl ol Hohen
zollern went to Bucharest as Prince of
Romania and did such a good job in
governing the country that the Rou
manians had no objection to his promo
tion as King.
No one envies Prince Wilholm Mb
new job. The throne went begging for
a long timo. No one seemed to have
the nerve to tackle the task of govern
ing the fierce Albanians. After con
sulting the Kaiser, Franz Joseph of
Austria, King Karl and Carmen Sylva

It is almost certain that when the

chambers this evening they will take
an inventory of the police department

to put him off tho force and declares
that Councilman Jones Is another one

It is current rumor today that both ,
Gaines and Sanders will feel the bite
of the faction which is opposing their

have been residents here continuously
for three years. It is also said that
in the event these two policemen srs
attacked on these grounds, Officer
Fisher, the third new man appointed,
will be compelled to resign for the
same reason. Friends of Gaines and
