Secretary Kale I. has a neatly prepared
paper, certified by Tollce Clerk Sylvester,

Is from fire to twenty years, and thenum-

MR. ROSS EXPLAINS.
Commissioner Ross was asked yesterday
why this law was not enforced. He
answered, la the first place, there was no
place to put all the children if they could
be forced to nttend and next that there was
no provision for a truant officer. He
thought it could hardly bo practicable to
assign a cleric to that duly as had been
done In the case of Water Registrar.
The Commissioners, be said, are in favor
of a compulsory law, and as soon as there
is a prospect for sufficient room for all an
attempt will be made to have a new law'
passed providing for a truant officer, with
police powersand with other changes, bring
ing It In line with the best laws on the

joad, beyond the Eastern Branch.
The Issuing of tickets for new scholars
and for transfers was about completed
yesterday. Those receiving them will
meet their teachers Tuesday.
PARENTS' REQUEST REFUSED.
A feature of the Issue is the refusal of
idmlsslou to the schools preferred by the
parents. They are obliged In some in'
stances to have the children attend the
ocbools nearest their homes without refer
Hice to the parents' convenience.
An instance of this was noted at the
Peabody school where a father wished to
have his son near bis business place at the
close of school, and that was next door
to the Peabody.
A card was refused because he lived
nearer the Taylor. He said good naturedly
he had nine children and could hardly
afford to move to the Peabody neighbor
hood Just on account of one boy.
The teachers and pupils will meet ac
cording to the advertised schedule.
At the Eastern High School cxaminai
tlons to remove conditions will be held at
9 a. m. to-morrow. Pupils already passed
from the eighth grade will meet at 11

The District Commissioners yesterday
approved the findings of the trial board
upon the investigation ma'de of the charges
against Detective Charles W. Proctor, In
theUaxwell case, for the enforcement ot
the Edmunds law.
Th& trial board returned..ProcIor "not;
guilty ."nndtheaction of the Commissioners
exonerates him from blame, upon the
grounds that lie was acting under orders
of his superior officer, in accordance wltji
the manual, and strictly in lino with his
duty as an officer detailed to perform
delccthc duly. , .. , ,
It Is also a conclusion that he should
not. be hold responsible for the law which
he attempted to enforce, nor for the
attempt. to enforccJU. on the parfot those
whose duty It was to do so by the usual
and only effecthe means 'employed in
Commissioner Truesdcll reviewed the
testimony at great length, prcfaclng-lt with1
character of tho case, and (he great public
Interest it has excited; also betanie of the-
voluminous and conflicting character of1
much of the testimony, he felt It to be
necessary to give tho matter most careful
MR. TRUESIiELL-8 .REVIEW
After reciting- the charges in detail Mr
Truesde'.l tays the theorj upon wh'dilbc
prosecution was conducted i as that "Proc
tor -was not onlv guilty of all that was
charted in the rpeclflcatlous, but that he
had been a cloee friend of Main's," re
ferring to the niau'w hom the detective ti as
alleged )o luve cooperated with in the
raid ma du at Main'sboueeupon the room oc
cupied by Mnxwel" and hla companion, Miss
Fynan It was In the enforcement of the
Edmunds law that the midnight visit was
made to Maxwitl'eroom.
1 1 was alsu the beiicf, Mr. Truesdell states,
that Proctor ordered Main to procure
evidence; that he hai'.vltlted Main's house
In that matter prior to Jure 10, the date
upon which he swore he bad made his first
vlilt In company with Detective Rhodes, and
that his first interview with Mr. Mullow
ney, prosecutor, was on Saturday, June 8,
Instead ot June 10, as sworn to both by
Proctor and Hollinberger.
In short that Proctor had Undertaken the
case without instructions from his superior
officer, and that, in his zeal to make a case,
he had brought discredit upon the police
dp.irtment by aioptlng methods of pro
curing evidence heretofore unknown, and
In violation of the rules governing the Metro
Aside 'from some contradictory testi
mony of Main, concerning the visits made
to his residence by Proctor, Main being
so confused, Mr. Trucsdell observes, as
to make bis testimony uurelluble, there
is not a particle of evidence that Proctor
ever had a word of communication with
Main concerning the cae prior to the
8th or 10th of June, when Main vUited
him aud Hollinberger at their offices and
sought Proctor's asidstanccv
The eleIn.d aid was refused, as was
shown until after Uollluberger gave him
orders to take Main over to sec Mullowny.
Proctor did make one visit to Main's
alone, i n the 11th of June.
"The material facts from this time
down to the arrest of "Maxwell nnd his
companion is shown In th'e testimony.
Piot-toi? guilt or innocence," the ComJ
rnlseloner says, "turns upon whether he
was authorized by Hollinberger or-Mul-1
lowney and the rules ot the departmeat
to make the visits, nnd to do what he
did. In Main's house, to secure the evidence
The police manual, paragraph 148, Is
quoted as bis authority from that source, and
Mullowney's evidence to the effecrthat his
bffiee Is often called upon by the police de
partment to assist In working up cases is
referred to. It Is also stated that precinct
officers have, been used la substantially the
same way In similar cases, when the patties
Interested were less prominent
"There is a wide difference," Commis
sioner Truesdell says, "between the Versions'
given by Mullo wney and Hollinberger, of the
conversation between them.whcnMullowney
made application for Proctor's assistance."
The testimony is then gienln detail, the
for .Proctor to Eerve the warrant, while
Hollinberger swears that Mullowney asked
for Proctor to do some work, for him, and
that he said: 'Tell Proctor to go to Main's
to night and he will be able to give hlra
all the evidence he will need In the case.' "
"No matter what the misunderstanding
may have been Holllnbcrgcr's note to
Proctor snows that he (Proctor) went to
Maln'b bouse that evening with orders from
bis lieutenant to get evidence of tho only
kind that would enable to ihake"a case.
'He reported the results of his first and
all subsequent visits to Main's bouse to
his official superior, Hollinberger, and
when Rhodes was taken away from him he
demanded the assistance ot another officer
and Gallaher was detailed.
WHS" A DETECTIVE?
"It Mullowney only wanted a warrant
served, why did be need a detective? He
bad bis own deputy marshal and tho serv
ices of the lieutenant of the precinct wera
at bis command."
Proctor and Main reportedtoMulIOTneyon
the 13th' ot June' and JMulloncy testifies
to having told Main that he could shove
the door open. ,Maln said he would brak
the lock, but afterward' said be could use
a duplicate key.
"It Is not material," the Commissioner
states, "whether Mullowney told Troctor
or Main to shove the door in, the fact that he
told Main in Proctor's presence tnat he
could 'shove the door open, which be -admits,
show's that they had a right to enter,
even if "they were not so Instructed by Mul
lowney, that they were to arrest the-par ties
in the room whlcb they occupied together.
In order to complete the evidence. Upon
any-other, theory, all this taltraboutshov!
Jng the door open would h'ave been Useless.
Bat no door was forced bpen "by any onet
Ilwas opened by thenseofadupllcatekoy."
MrTuesdelI concludes with the obser
vation" that "the trial committee and the
superintendent of notice recommend that
"the charges fbodismlssiMl." Hetconcura in
"Uia yefdlct, buuggestshat be manual
be so amended as to forbid theTise ot the

jFnrnUU Clnincei for Fixing Events.
Glvo tlio Talent ?o Shon Siva,
Foundllnc and Vent Put TJp a Great
Hnct- Dlestel'H Ilorse Won by a
Keot Otlter Events.
The chute at Alexander Island has al
ways been very unpopular-with the public
for the reason that it is such an easy matter
to "Job" races that are ran out of it. If
they were done away with altogether and
all of the events were run on the circular
track, it would please all hands, -nltli the
possible exception of those who profit by
the "Jobs." -
One of tbete fixed races was run out of
tbe chute in the fifth event .yesterday that
was so thoroughly rotten that the talent
threw up their hands In horror.. Jersey
came out and beat tbe 24o 6ibot, Forest,
with apparent case, andlhe one comment
that tv as ntade on therace;was "shoo."
NEEDED RULING OFF.
If there ever was a horse "shoved In"
It was Jersoy, and the least that could bavo
possibly been done to the Forestpeople was
to rule them of f for life and. then throw them
out of the gate.
On form,J?oresl "figured!' a. 1 to 10 shot.
On Tuesday last he beat Harry Kelster
handily with Jersey third, beaten off, and
into camp without turning a hair.
Yesterday as soon aa tbe horses left the
post he was taken so far back that he could
not possibly make up the lost ground.
.Parsons turned his bead loose when he saw
that he did not have a chance and closed so
rapidly on Jersey that he came very near
beating him, notwithstanding the "pull."
A. VERZ POOR LOT.
Vine maidens lined up. to do battle
for the opening race and they were a pretty
rank lot. Marjr closed tho choice but
could do no better than, third to Hamming
Bird and Qeorgie R. , Humming Bird
opened favorite at 7 to'S, bnt"was reported
to be dead" and closed at T to 2.
The two-year-old race was simply a pipe
opener for Mid Rose, who was made a 3
to 10 chance. Lottie F., at odds ot 12 to
1, ran into second money, with Murray
Foundling; Vent, Siva and Dr. Reed
started Jn the third raeeand ranone of tbe
prettiest races ever seen at.the track.
Dr. Reed dropped out.gf.tIiO-.race when the
horses struck the back stretch but the
oilier three hung together, and when they
swung around tho tum for home were necks
apart. Siva was the'gamestof the lot aDd
in a hardTlrlvo won fronrFoundllng by a
neck. Vent was right after them, a head
behind Foundling, with Dr. Reed beaten off.

Chief Constructor Ulchborn and Chief
Engineer Melville, who hae had the bids
for the Construction of three contemplated
torpedo boats under consideration, have
completed the examination and comparison

port to the Secretary of theNavy.
It Is understood to point out that one
ot three courses Is open to the department,

tbe boats In Ma ran, of Seattle, Washing
ton, and two to the Herreshofts; the sec
ond, to award all three to the Herreshofts;

They recommend the adoption ot the
first plan which would bring the aggre
gate within the aggregate appropriation
fixed by law. Hie Herreshoffs being below
the legal limit, and the Mo ran bid above
It. It is considered fair and within the
spirit of the law to let the contract for
one of tbe vessels go to the Pacific Coast
