Sho is "Art" Baker, who wsh sen
fenced from Riverside for stealing
oney from the postoffice there three
years ngo. During her three years in
carceration. Miss Baker has managed
to conceal her secret, except from some
other prisoners. Today she told her
story to a newspaperman.
Ib an appeal to the public and the
governor, she said that, if it wu not
answered soon or unless she was moved
into the women's ward, she would com
mit suicide.
"I have been here three vears." bIic
snid. "The convicts have insulted me.
Tho prison offfcinls gave me a separate
oootn in winch to bathe, but it is ia
the same room where from 1400 to
1500 men bathe.
"I was convicted aad sentenced to
prison ns a man. As such I have
served three years of my sentence. Now
I can bear it no longer. The prison
officials have been kind but even
their kindness cannot make up for the
hqitor of a woman being cnged with a
lot of men convicts.
"I was bom 40 years ago. I was a
deformed baby. In my deformity, my
mother mistook my sex until I was 11
years old. My family was ashamed of
me and I was told to keep my de-(
formity a secret. After I had lived so
long ns a boy, my people were ashamed
to put me in dresses.
"In 190! nl' family obtained my

Attorney General Throws
Light On Problems Per
plexing Secretary
Owing to a pledge taken by candi
dates in filing declarations of candi
dacy, the secretary of stnte 's office has
tuken the petition of A. W. Lnfferty of
Portland, who was defeated for the re
publican nomination in the Third con
gressional district by C. W. JdcArthur
and who now wishes to appear on the
bnllot as the progressive candidate, ts
the attorney genernl. Attorney Gen
eral Brown has advised the secretary of
state thnt Laf forty's demand is legal
and must be complied with. In giving
the opinion the attorney says: "The
primary law does not attempt to pro
vide a method whereby a candidate may
be forced to keep his pledge. This has
been confined entirely into the keep
ing of the conscience of the candidate
nnd the judgment of the people. As
election certificate was regularly issued
by the governor of Oregon, ns provided
by statute, and regularly delivered to
Lafferty declaring him to be the nomi
nee of the progressive party for con
gress from the Third Oregon district.
This certificate of election entitles him
to have his acceptance filed and his
name placed on the bnllot notwithstand
ing his pledge."
No Claims Allowed.
Claims of delegates for expenses in
curred in attending national party con
ventions will not be allowed by the sec
retary of state. Attorney General
Brown, to whom the question was re
ferred, says: "Without expressing an
opinion upon this subiect, I wish to
call your attention to Section 2025
Lord's Oregon laws, as amended by
Chapter 28 P. 01, laws of 1913, which
provides that in such cases the secre
tary of state shall draw no warrants
tin audif inv claims AvOAnfr n-hun nn
appropriation has been made covering
tne same, mere is no appropriation
made by the last session of the legisla-
ture nor at auy other time for the ex
penses now under consideration, an
therefore under the section aa cited the
secretary of state is forbidden from au
diting claims for such expenses."
Not Part of Expenses.
Another question which the secretary
of state's office has put up to the at
torney general is in effect as follows: ;
Do sums paid by a caadidate for secur
ing signatures and preparing petitions
to have his name printed on the official
ballot come within the limitation of
candidates' expeases under the pro
visions of the corrupt practice act I The
attorney general holds that qualifying
to become a candidate by paying the
declaration fee or by paying the ex
pense of securing a petition signed by
the requisite nnmber of electors of his
party is not any part of the effort to
secure or influence voters and is not
therefore a part of the campaign and
ia not required to be included in the
swora statement filed by the candi
date. These Not Restricted.
In replying to a third question from
the secretary of state are candidates
for election at party nominating eon
ventiona as delegates to party national
conventions restricted ia their expenses
uuder the provisions of the corrupt
practice actt Attorney General Brown
calls attention to the fact that candi
dates for election at primary nomtna
ing elections are eliminated under the

Says Story Is False.
Imperial Beach, Cal.,
August 5, 1910.
To the Editor Capital Journal.
Dear Sir: In your issue of July 29
appears the publication of a letter
from Private Dewey McElrath, of Com
pany M, to Chief of Police Welch, of
Salem, in which my name appears.
Since the reference to me is just aa
false as the rest of the letter is puerile
clatter, my first notion was to consider
the source and disregard it. However,
many of the boys have urged me to not
permit the thing to go unnoticed for
the good reason that all sorts of false
impressions may be created and none of
us know what we might Bee published
The author of the letter to Chief
Welsh become an undesirable citizen in
the eyes of the Salem officials and the
woaderoua wise plan was csnceived to
coerce him into joining Company M,
giving him-r I understand, incarceration
as an alternative. There are a number
oi us who were not only astonished
but most resentful that it shonld be con
cluded that Company M must serve as a
means of ridding Salem of such fellows.
and we belieTp. most of the citizens at
home agree that it was most unjust to
force McElrath on us.
Bui the damage ia not to end, it
seems, for despite our efforts to keep
the discordant note as quiet as "possible
our good friend Chief Welsh, sees fit
to have it further harped upon.
Don't you think it's unfair for you
to publish the almost imbecile corres
pondence of this scalawag aad thus be
a means of creating false impressions
about usf
1 don't hold McElrath to blame, for
his intellect is of but a low order, but
its poor judgment on hief Welsh's
part to pass his letter to the newspapers
for publication.
