In the regular police bulletin they had received descriptions of Dlehm, his photograph, and word that be had murdered Roy Corbett in Chicago, January 1 of this year. Nothing was known of his previous record, or of the alleged idcntl flcatlon of Dlehm as Archie Clark, one of the trio of men said to have put through- the $280,000 bank robbery , at New Westminister,-British Columbia, or or jus other escapades . ia aiding tn a.no.st ornce robbery at Richmond, Virginia, and bank robberies at Louisville and ntta burg. . " -- Acttag Chief Petersen, after receiving the information that the Plnkeitons had trailed Dlehm half across the continent detailed Inspector Thomas Wood to go to the Rama Rosa saloon and arrest Dlehm, giving the insDector a descrlotlon oi me man; - After waiting about the place for some time. Inspector Wood found his man seat ed at a table playing cards-with thrse others. f "The Captain of Inspectors wants to see you at his office," said Wood, placing hie hand on the man's shoulder, "leu will have to come with me." DECLINES TO QO. 'Tn Sydney, a real estate man of St Louis," responded the man accosted. "If he wants to sea me he can find me In my room at the hotel. I won't go with you." "Xes, you will," declared the officer, and In an Instant had searched his man for concealed weapons, and had him In custody. Still protesting, the -man be lieved to be Dlehm was led from the saloon. As the two emerged from the saloon, Sydney suddenly placed one foot in front of Wood's right leg, and giving the officer a heavy shove, knocked him to the street as he wrenched his arm free from the Inspector's hold. As Wood, lost his balance and fell to the sidewalk, his pri soner darted off toward Broadway on Twelfth. Although stunned by the fall, Wood re gained his feet and started In pursuit. calling out for assistance In the attempt to recapture the man. A sensational race followed. Sydney turned south on Broadway, and darting through the crowds, knocking several people down, he fan hot foot down the street. Crowds thronged the street, as the matinee at the theaters had let out a few minutes before. Commissioner William J. Baccus was standing at Twelfth and Broadway and hearing WoodNmJI out te him, he" joined In the pursuit of the fugitive. Patrolmen Seyden and Robinson also took up the chase, assisted and Impeded at the same time by an eager crowd. The fugitive was about 100 feet ahead when the pursuit turned Broadway, and Wood was leading the erowd of several score runners. Inspector Wood outstrip ped the others, and succeeded In striking the fleeing man over the head with the muszle of his revolver ,. KNOCKS HIM DOWN. . The man turned and- attempted to strike at Wood, and was again clubbed with the revolver, the blow being so heavy that It knocked the man down and broke the sight of the revolver, putting the weapon out of commission. With the aid of Commissioner Baccus and Patrolmen Robinson and Seyden, the man was S nally subdued and removed to the city rlson. "I didn't know what I was up aealnst," said Inspector Wood this morning. "If I had known what kind of a prisoner I had to deal with I would have shoved my revolver under his chin and told him to throw up his hands. There would have been no trouble after that, as I should have placed, the bracelets on him." The prisoner declares that he knows nothing of the murder of Ray Corbett In Chicago, and that he has never heard of Dlehm, alias Archie Clark, or any of the crimes charged against him. He is seer, tlve and cautious about his affairs. "I am. not absolutely sure this Is th man we want," declared Acting Chief Petersen this morning. "The description fits in almost all details. But the picture obtained by the Chicago police was taken when Dlehm was only 19 and the man Is now 83 years or, age. There Is considerable difference here. The facial con tours are the same,, and there is a scar on one cheek that seems, to be conclu. slve proof. But the ears seem different We have no finger irlnts.Qflb.ft. Chicago murderer. The man has about the same measurements. GUILTY OF SOMETHING. "But It Is obvious that this man Is guilty of Something or he would not have taken the desperate chances to escape. We will hold him till we hear from Chl-oago. We have no records of Dlehm being connected with the New Westminster robbery or Ah . bank robberies, but the private detectives say that these records are against the man." According to the police and the Pln- kertons, who have been trailing Dlehm for months, the prisoner Is the last of the trio of men said to have planned and executed the $280,000 bank robbery at New Westminster. James McNamara, a San Franoisoo saloon man, Is now under arrest as the leader of the gang. The postofflce Inspectors of New Tork want Dlehm on a charge of having aided Eddie Fay, a notorious post-office robber i.ow serving time, In the I robbery of the postofflce at Richmond. I More than lllfi. 000 wnj taken. fJjlehm, who Is known in San Francisco as Archie Clark, barely escaped cat- ture in New Tork. When the Inspectors eelsedTy, Dlehm was hovering about waiting -to take charge of a number of trunks which contained stolen postage stamps. Dlehm was ohased by the Inspeotors, but after an exchange of shots he escaped. The local postofflce Inspectors learned several weeks sgo that Dlehm was in this vicinity. The police say that Dlehm, tinder the name of Arohle Clark, has been friendly with Mrs. James McNamara, wife of the arrested San Francisco' saloon keeper. Prior to the arrest of McNamara, according to the police, Clark acted as a go-betwfeen for McNamara and his friends in tilts city. ; ' : "' TO CURE A COLD IN ONE PAY take LAXATIVE BUOMO Quinine Tablets.

" . an open avenue for fraud and vlo. lence. "It la eminently apropriate that In every election end in the discussion of all issues that affect the report we should discuss and hear much of the popular will, and of the rights of the people. This Is a government based on popular control. "Wei all concede that the operation of elections and the operations of government are not perfect, and some times are subject to corrupt influences and control, and that It is the part of patriotism to remove, as -far as possible, the obstacles which prevent honest primaries, honest elections and ,the honest administration of the government In the Interests of the people. "But the continued iteration and reiteration of t,he proposition .'let the people ruhslf it has any significance' Bt all and is intended otherwise than to flatter the people, Is intended to be a reflection - on -the' government that wehave , had;-n4o.ft'P.4Jh.e;present time.- " '-'' ..." PEOPLE HAVE RULED. "Now; In spite of all the r orruption, in spite of all the machine politics, in spite of every defect In the operation or our government that can be pointed out, I don't hesitate to say that the history of the last 135 years shows that the people have ruled. "They may have been defeated at tlmeg by corrupt and corrupting influences, congresses and legislatures may have been halted by subterranean methods in carrying out what the people desire, but In the end un der our present constitution and our laws, we have had a really popular government. I don't mean to say that we can not make it better. I don't mean to say that we may not remove, some obstacles by which the corruption or machine methods may be minimized, but what I do say is that the cry that the people don't rule and are not In Control, or an Intimation to that effect, does not do Justice to the Amer-lean people or their history. Certainly, there Is nothing in the growth of this country from the adoDtlon of the constitution until now, or within the last twenty or thirty years that justifies any attack upon our structure or government, or sapping of the foundations, that have stood so firmly, and upon which our whole nonular civilization has been reared. The occasion for these remarks Is the attack on our Judiciary and the proposal by Judicial recall or recall of Judicial decisions, to destroy Its Independence, and thus to take away from the arch of government the keystone. I "I deny that there is In the decisions of the courts or the character of the Judges, or the result of litigation, that which istifies such a radical innovation. I am not unmindful of the necessity for Judicial reform, but that depends not upon changing the character of the Judges, but upon the change of procedure, the expression of Judgments and the reduction of the expense of litigation. MODERN TENDENCY. ''One easily can discover a tendency In modern politics to exalt above the written law and above the written constitution what is called 'popular will' as if that were a higher law to which we must all admit allegiance by observing it and Ignore or trans gress statutory and constitutional limitations. "This Is not exactly In the form of an assertion that Judges and others are. to Ignore statutes and constitutions, because of a conflicting popular will, but It is in the more insiduous Oakland Youths Leave Home to Find Adventure Afield. The lure of adventure, and the call of spring led James Knight, aged 15, and jMoltene Macklln, aged 1$ years, from their respective homes, 6089 and C088 Its-mont street, Saturday, and started them off on a long tramp Into the country. The parents of the two boys reported their departure to the police yesterday and a search is being made for the young wan derers. T.iey left home Saturday forenoon and nothing has been seen of either since. The boys are described ' as follows: James Knight is 6 feet in height, welgnt 90 pounds, sandy complexion, reddish hair, gray eyes, wore blue overalls over cordu roy trousers, light softh!rt, . Moltene Macklln, height 4 feet 10 Inches, weight 85 pounds, dark complexion light brown hair, gray eyes, wore blue overalls and blue shirt ' The police have also been asked to, make a search forr Virgil fieloy, aged-12 years, who disappeared last evening from his home at 686 Twentieth street. The parents of the boy are anxious and worried over the possible fate of the youth. He la described as of fair complexion, with blue eyes, and fair hair. He wore cordu roy trousers, a blue shirt and gray coat and light cloth cap. . I. H.l Smith," years old, was reported to the police "yesterday as missing from his home at 175 Fourteenth street. He left his home at 10 o'clock Saturday morning rand has not been heard from since. His relatives fear .he has wandored away and met with some accident. Herman Peterson, '35 years old, left his home at 771 Nineteenth street, two days ago and since that time hhr relatives have hoard nothing from him. They have asked the police to locate him. Peterson is t feet in height, weighs 178 pounds, has light hair, blue eyes and light complexion. ' COMPROMISES ONE SUIT . AND BRINGS ANOTHER After compromising a suit brought against the will of his father, Andreas Petersen, Charles Petersen ol San Leandro is now bringing' suit contesting the will of his brother, Thos, Petersen, on the ground that the deceased was unduly Influenced by Mrs. Anna Watklns, his sister, and was mentally unsound. The case Is being heard In the Superior Court before Judge F. B, Ogden. Petersen claims that his brother Intended to divide the estate equally between himself and Mrs. Watklns. but that false statements and undue influence on the part of the latter prevented this. The estate is said to be worth about $15,000.

' The president here quoted a west em governor, whom he did not name. who had declared "whatever is right Is constitutional" and who had taken Lincoln's "the life of this nation is greater than any constitution" to sus tain his view. "It is Impossible to escape the meaning of such a view," said the president, "and that is that the plain construction of the constitution is to be perverted because it is thought the people at present would prefer not to be subject to the limitation contained in the eonstltutoin lawfully adopted. The quoted words of Lincoln have here no application. It Is not true that 'whatever' Is right is con-strtutioriar'-unless the "declaration' of right Is contained In the constitution, Orstls forbiden by It. ; "Popular "will, to be effective and controlling with courts, must be embodied In statutory enactment or constitutional law. "It Is not left to the executive of state or nation or to the Judges on the bench whether state or federal, to decide what Is right when there is law declaring what Is rlghton" the statute books. "The law Is the guide of the Judges and the governor, and not his individual opinion as to whether t'ffe law Is good or not. "This is a government of law, not of changing economic and political the ories or judicial or executive officers, when those theories are in conflict with the express letter of the law. Suggestions of that sort are dangerous-because they put the' ship of state on a sea without a rudder. They destroy that respect for constituted authority that is essential to well ordered liberty. . .

President Taft began his two days' visit to New England today with an entertainment list here that promised to keep him busy until after midnight In addition to a formal breakfast by the city officials, the program Included an addrtss by the president to the Massachusetts legislature an Informal luncheon with the Pllcrim Publicity Club, review' of the Evacuation and 64? Patrick's Day parades In South Boston and "calls" at the dinners of the Charitable Irish Society, the Boston Bank Officers' Association; the Boston Paper Trade Association, and the Tale Club of Boston. Taft brought a green silk shamrock with him from Washington and wore it in the lapel of his coat. At the City Club breakfast the president declined to talk on public questions, because he was to discuss them at the legislature later. He declared that though he was brought up In Ohio and educated In the Philippines, he was of thorough Massachusetts stock. "In mentioning Menden, there is a tablet which bears the names of 27 of the founders 'of the town and I am descended from seventeen of them," he said. At the City Club Mr. Taft was Joined by his son, Robert, who came over from the Harvard Law School. No Use in Sunset System Is Statement, of the Company.

Anderson and John Forrest hsve been eliminated from the plans for a recall, according to the action taken by the Socialist party at Its meeting In Hamilton Hall last night. The "fight will be centered on Mayor Mott, Commisloner F; C. Turner and Commisloner William J. Baccus. It is expected that the union labor forces will support this program, and thus a fight between the recall forces Is avoided. The Socialists had at first planned to start a recall movement affecting the entire city administration, but the Central Labor Council refused to support this policy. The Council Issued a report urging the recall of Mott and Turner only and the leaders of the ufilon labor movement stated that no other officers would be recalled through their assistance. It was this statement; It is believed, that prevented the Socialists last night from endotsrmr"1he "recall "of the entire list of Oakland's officials. -4 . The matter wa In -tha -hands of a committee of '88, which brought Its findings before the party. Members of the union labor forces were pres ent at the meetings, and stated that the labor council will aid the So clalistg in their fight The matter of recalling the school directors, broach ed at a previous meeting, did not come up. . The Central Labor Council this .week stated that It would not interfere In such an action. The findings of the committee. which advocates only the recall of the three officials named, are beMleved by tne union men to be a concession to them, as a nasty political fight would have followed an attempt to oust John Forrest, the union candidate. The charges 'to be flld against the Mott officials are to be changed also, according to the report of the committee qf the Socialists. The free speech matter is to be thrown into the background, and prominence given to an accusation" that the administration Is unfriendly to organized labor. The delegates to the executive committee of the Socialist party will meet in Rice Institute next Sunday, and at this time a further Met of charges may be formulated. The So clallsts last night also accused Mott and his administration - of "lending police aid to strike-breakers." . - The socialists have, through these actlonsL.Juacg the matter practically before the union labor forces to fleht. making the charges those which affect the unions, and comprising the issue until organized labor was able to go behind it. The matter of candidates to take the place of the officials against whom the attemptedrecall is to be made, will come up after the notice of in tention to petition has been filed. It will probably be filed this week. ROUTINE MAHERS Recommendations of Commissioner Baccus Are Acted On. On the recommendation of Commissioner of Streets W. J.

Edoff a member of the board of park directors, today, Edoff expressed disappointment that the people of Oakland who could afford to subscribe to the concert fund, had not responded more liberally, and pointed to the fact that Sanla Barbara spends $21,000 a year for concerts and Denver $50,000. The park commission has issued the following statement through Director Ed-ofT: Do the people of the city of Oakland desire a continuation of the Sunday concerts which, have afforded them so much pleasure and which have greatly advertised this city all over the sountry? If they do they will have within a short time to subscribe $1500 for their maintenance for the reason that that amount will be necessary to continue thern until July 1, at which time the expenses of these Sunday entertainments will bo bjirtie entirely by tne city without subscriptions being at all asked from the people. These concerts were introduced by the Oakland park directors for the purpose of Inaugurating the system by public subscription. Just as soon as Lakeside park was ready to make a favorable impression on the public. The money with which they were Inaugurated was subscribed partly by the city, the Oakland traction company, and a few private citizens. The total amount raised was $6000 and of that sum $11600 Jias sJready been expended. With this sum, 14 concerts have been given in the park Blhce September lust. In that period there have been onlv three Sundays missed, because of the weather, and then the skipping was occasioned by a strict compliance with the idea of tne park directors that where there was the slightest doubt as to a continuance weather the people were not to be Invited to look for the outdoor entertainment. : LARGE ATTENDANCE. There Is no doubt that tho concerts wero enjoyed by the public, more esps-clally those which, with a band of 40 expert musJelans, have been conducted by Paul ateUjdorff, the distinguished director in this section of. thn At some -of those gatherings there were as many as 12,00 persons and the large majority of these could easily afford to contribute a mite to swell the fund, thus supplementing the more liberal donations which ar expected from the wenlthv people who have a desire to continue the performance. If the requisite sum of ll.'iOn u nni nm. vlded the concerts will have to be brought iu tiuwuL amy, wnen, as every person knows, the really Idealistic weather tor the reason begins and people will be compelled to go to Ban Francisco for their Sunday afternoon outing In a wlnd.swpet park, Instead of listening to the choicest of music in summer weather, in a charming amphitheater, formed by nature, adorned with antique oaks and flowers and mado musical with birds. The people are requested to remember, In this connection, that this subscription is to be used only In an emergency and that after the next fiscal ver th.r. n,m always be a sufficient amount of money provided in the budget for the perpetuation of this innocent and elevating method ui t)onuiiig ine pupuiar nay of rest.
