comparative statement of costs In
the State Department of Agriculture
under the Administrative Code for
the four months of April, May, June
and J«ly for the years 1919, 1920,
and 1921 issued today by the De

Oil Inspection, Seed Inspection,
Weights and Measures Inspection,

tine measures for the protection of
agricultural crops, forest trees, and
forest products, and growing crops;
enforcement of the laws regarding
noxious weeds, (a new duty under
the code), hay and grain inspection,
and farm marketing. Weights and
Measures are transferred from the
Secretary of State; Hay and Grain
Inspection from Public Service Com
mission, and Farm Market Director
from the State College.
"The comparative costs of opera
tion for the first four months of the
three years mentioned above, are as

Is dependent upon the Legislative
appropriation. For 1919-1921 the
appropriation was $60,000 and for
1921-1923 it is also $60,000. Actual
operating costs after the elimination
of the operation of this function

of $2,240.27. For 1921 over ~920,
a saving of $14,260,38. These sav

reduced number of people, the
greater efficiency of the smaller
force, and the close study of the
Director of this Department along
lines of economy."

All Connection With
Biehn Incident.
TACOMA, Sept. 17.—Charged with
kidnaping Mrs. R. J. Biehn and her
3-months-old son early Wednesday
evening, W. D. Shincke, 46 years old,
a farmer, was arrested at his ranch
at Lily lake, in the Bald hills. 12
miles from Yelua, on a state warrant
and lodged in the Tacoma city Jail.
Althoungh positively identified as
the alleged kidnaper by Mrs. Blehii.
Shincke denies all connection with
the case and says he can produce a
per fee alibi, hte police say.
The kidnaper, Mrs. Biehn reported
to the police, drew his automobile up
to the curb at 38th and M streets,
where she was walking with her

day evening, and at the point of a
gun commanded her to enter his au
tomobile. When she hesitated, she
said, he seized her roughly by the
wrist and literally threw her into the
tonneau of the automobile. The
baby fell from Mrs. Biehn'B arms and
bruised its head on the floor of the
The kidnaper is then said to have
driven for some time and then to
have stopped at 56th and M strets.
After submitting Mrs. Biehn to a
close scrutiny he is alleged to have
ordered her from the car, saying:
"You're not the one I want. Beat
It and keep still." He then drove off.
Remembers License Number
Mrs. Biehn made note of the
license number of the kidnaper's car
and, as her assailant was unmasked,
she obtained a clear view of his fea
tures. The car bearing the license re
ported by Mrs. Biehn to the police.
No. 76231, was listed to a Maxwell,
transferred to a Ford, belonging to
When the officers, accompanied by
Mrs. Biehn and her mother-inlaw,
Mrs. John Biehn, reached Shincke's
farm the man was not at home, but
out hunting. When he appeared
through the brush carrying a shot
gun Mrs. Biehn, gazing through the
rear window of the automobile, faint
ed at the sight of him. When she
was revived she told the officers she
was absolutely certain that Shincke
was the man who had kidnaped her.
Submitted to a severe grilling by
the police, Shincke denied al of Mra.
Biehn's allegations and denied all
connection with the matter. He said
he hid never seen Mrs. Biehn before
and had not ben in town for several
weeks. The last time he visited Ta

arrested with a large number of
other residents o! the Bald Hills oa
a charge of moonshinlng. His trial
on this charge has not yet come up

Shlncke told the police he could
produce a perfect alibi. He is mar

told police officers when they took
him to his cell, where he was helft
pending further investigation. "I, a

McGraw's Team Looks Good—Yank3
and Indians Fighting Hard—
Coast League Upset
And still they're all knotted up.
The unexpected happened in the
Coast league and In the National
league but with decidedly different
effect in the two leagues. In the
American the champion Indians and
the battling Yanks are still fighting it
out, with neither team having any
edge. Pans the country over are
thrilled as they watch the scoreboards
which tell the stories of day to day
batles of the leagues.
The unexpected In the National
league included the crumbling of the
strong offense and defense of the
Pitsburgh Pirates, leaders nearly all
season, and the rise of John McGraw's
Giants to heights from which the
Plrntes have little chance of dislodg
ing them in the few remaining game*
The Giants now have a lead of four
and one-half games. They play their
last game with Pittsburgh today.
The Yankees have a lead of a bare
fraction of a game In the American
this morning, by virtue of a win over
Detroit yesterday, while Walter
Johnson and the Senators were
crushing the Indians. This does not
tell the story of the past week, how
ever, for that period saw Cleveland
put an end to the string of defeats
that carried the Indians down to sec
and place and win seven straight
games, while New York took but four
out of seven.
The Yanks have the advantage of
playing practically al the remaining
games at home, while the Indians
finish on the road. The final result,
however, is likely to be told in the
next series between the Yanks and
the Indians which comes the latter
part of this week.
The unexpected in the Coast league
was the upset of all four first divi
sion teams by the second divisioners.
Portland and Seattle, stopped by rain
yesterday, are to play two games to
day if the weather man will permit.
The series now stands Portland 4.
Seattle 3.
The Oaks mangled the Seals in
steam roller fashion during the week,
taking five out of seven games. Los
Angeles, erstwhile leaders, lost the
odd game to Vernon in a seven game
series. Salt Lake took the odd game
from Sacramento. To complete the
record in proper fashion, Seattle
should divide with Portland today but
the Indians hope to take both games
and gain a little ground.
The remaining two weeks of the
schedule give Sjattle some advantage
over her rivals in the matter of games
at home. Los Angeles comes to Se
attle for this week's series, while the
rejuvenated Portland Beavers take
on San Francisco in Portland. Sac
ramento plays at Oakland, while Salt
Lake and Vernon mix at Los Angeles.
Seattle is the only one of the four
leading teams to play at home this
S Next week Los Angeles goes to
Portland to finish the season, while
San Francisco plays in Seattle.
Should the Seals continue to crumble
before Portland this week and then
lose in Seattle next week, the Indians
still have a chance. Unless the Seals
take a sudden brace they stand a good
show of being eliminated this week.
The Beavers are proving the reve
lation of the league. Had they dis
played the form earlier in the year
that they are showing now they
would not be in the cellar. Their
pitchers are turning in swell games
day after day and their stickers are
clouting the offerings of the best op
posing pitchers.
Seattle has arranged for great sup
port from the old home town for the
final drive. Some Seattle organiza
tion has taken charge of each day for
the remaining two weeks. Right
down the line to the last day of the
season the fans are going to see if
they can't yell the Indians into the
1921 pennant
Here's the way the standing looks

Takes Twenty-five Policemen to
Handle Crowd Thronging Hall
of Justice.
—Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle's
arraignment of the indictment
returned by the grand jury
charging him with manslaugh
ter in connection with the death
of Virginia Rappe, film actress
today was continued until Sept.
Arhuckle appeared at 10:30
before Superior Judge Louder
back to answer the charge. It
was the fifth courtroom in
which he has appeared since a
week ago.
Attorneys for the state and
> defense immediately agreed to
the continuance of the arraign
ment because of the decision of
district Attorney Brady to press
the charge of murder.
It took !25 policemen to take
care of the crowd which throng
ed the hall of justice and the
street in front.
Arbuckle waited in the cham
bers of the judge, to avoid the
crowd, rolling his own cigarette
until his case was called. He
appeared less worried than at
any time since he was arrested a
week ago today.
The court proceedings were
brief und perfunctionary.
nation-wide scandal probe will result
from the disclosures of the secrets of
th«j "Fatty" Arbuckle party, District
Attorney Matthew Brady intimated
here today.
An appropriation of SI,OOO was
obtained from the board of supervi
sors to run down the rumors of wide
spread scandal which have developed
from the investigation which followed
the arrest of Roscoe Arbuckle, in
connection with the death of Virginia
Rappe, actress, a guest at the party.
Brady Wants More Money
Brady declared the SI,OO will be
insufficient to obta'n the prosecuting
evidence he desires. He said ho
would appeal for more money when
the supervisors meet Monday.
While his prosecutors made plans
for the widespread investigation
Arbuckle still rested In his cell in
Jail here. He will be arraigned today
on a manslaughter charge returned
in an indictment by the grand jury.
The state, however, has decided not
to prosecute on this charge and ha 3
planned its case to obtain Arbuckle's
conviction for murder.
Charles Brennan, one of Arbuckle'«
legal corps, will enter a plea of not
guilty to the manslaughter charge
and the case probably will be contin
ued indefinitely.
But it will be impossible for the
prosecution to complete its case
without additional funds, Brady said.
Defense Fund Unliimted
"The defense has an unlimited
amount of money to be spent," Dep
uty A. Golden declared. "Without
sufficient funds the prosecution will
be defeated before it begins."
Brady did not give any details of
the probe he expects to begin, but it
was believed it will center about
Hollywood, the home of the Califor
nia movie stars, where rumors of
"wild part'eß" have been brought to
the police.
The body of Miss Rapper was being
taken to Los Angeles today, under
escort of a representative of an un
dertaking establishment. The funer
al will be held at Hollywood some
time Monday, it was believed.
