nuiiii District Attoriu-y For
Considerable Burprlse was occas
ioned among the legal fraternity of
our city this morning, when It be
came known that Geo. M Brown, for
the past twelv) yearn prosecuting at
torney for tola dintrlct, and Hon. B.
L. Eddy, for the past four years Reg
ister of the local United States land
office, had formed a partnership, the
tltU of such fli m to be recognized as
"Brown & Eddy, Attorneys-at-Law."
The partnership becomes effective
on January 1, at which time Mr. Eddy
.retires from the government payroll
Offices have been reserved In the new
Masonic building, where the members
of the new Arm will at all times be
found In readiness to serve in .the
best interests of their clients.
George M. Pi own, the senior mem
ber of the firm needs no introduction
to tho citizens of this county. In
fact, it might be said- that he Is rec
ognized throughout the entire state
as one of the most able prosecutors
in the West. In late years Mr. Brown
has been mentioned frequently as a
proper aspirant for the office of
United Slates Prosecuting Attorney,
but for various reasons he declined
to even consider the urgent requests
of his friends.
Mr. Brown is a native of Oregon; he
waB educated in the public schools
of this state, and when but a young
man decided to study law. Accord
ingly he spent IffiS leisure time in
study, and late In the year 1888 en
tered the office of Attorney J. V. Ful
lerton where he remained until the
year 1890 when he was admitted to
During S. W. Condon's adminis
tration as prosecuting attorney of
this district I!r. Brown served as his
deputy, and ill tho year 1894, alter
one o the hardest contested pnllti
sal campaigns ever known in this sec
tion, captured the district attorney
ship of this district. Since that time
he has served the people faithfully
not only in the capacity of his of
fice, but publicly as well.
' Hon. B. L. Kddy, the Junior mem
ber of the new iirm. although not a
resident of this county as long as
his associate, is well known, his con
nections ns ltegister of the local
United Stntes land office having plac
ed him In a position to meet many
citizens of the county frequently.
Prior to coming to Boselmrg In
the year 1105 to assume his duties in
the land office, Mr. Kddy resided in
Northwestern Oregon for several
He concluded his studios In tho law
Inw department of the University of
Oregon in the year 1S9 4, being ad
mitted to practice in ths same year.
Later he went to Portland where he
practiced his favorite profession un
til late in the year of 1S96 when he
became dissatisfied and moved to
Northwestern Ore., locating at Tilla
mook. There Mr. Kddy practiced law
until the yenr 1905 when he moved
to Roseliurg. Pnrlng his residence at
Tillamook. Mr. Kddy was twice elected
a member of the Oregon legislature,
and during the session of 1003 caus
ed to be passed the Corporation tax
law, which measure has since return
ed the state a revenue exceeding $100
000 per year. Mr.' Kddy was the
author of the bill, and through his
efforts it passed both Houses. The
measure Is similar to the corpor
ation tax clause attached to the
United States tariff bill. Mr. Eddy al
so promoted the organization of the
Tillamook County lir.nk, of which
concern he acted as director for sev
Mr. Eddy's efficiency as an attor
ney is unquestioned and that he will
become one of the leading lights In
the local legal circle seems assured.

Is Found a Short Distance
From His Lonely Home
That He Fell From His Horse While
Hiding Through the Woods
Friends Leave For The
A telephone message received at
the local forestry office shortly be
fore noon today from Peel, conveyed
the information that "Old" Hill Urad
ley, who resides alone on a ranch in
the lllehee district, about 30 miles
north of Peel on tho North Ump
qua river, had been found by forest
rangers late last evening lying a
short distance from his cabin. He ap
peared to be suffering from internal
Injuries and wus apparently uncon
scious. The meager mesjage also re
vealed the Information that he was
naked, and that aid be dispatched at
once. His pack horse, a faithful
old animal which Bradley owned for
years, was found a short distance
from tho scene, seemingly possessed
of the knowledge that his master was
injured. The information received at
the forestry office was dispatched by
Claud Bartrum, a member of the lo
cal fleld force.
Shortly after 1 o'clock this af
ternoon William Tipton, an uncle of
the Injured man, accompanied by
Thomas Strader and William Allen,
left for Bradley's home where they
will lend whatever assistance possi
ble. It Is generally supposed that the
injured man must have been riding
liis horse, nnd in some unexplainable
manner fell, frightening the animal
to such a degree that it inn dragging
its rider through the thicket. It was
first supposed that Bradley had been
bound, gagged and thrown from his
hoitS'i by persons bent on robbery,
but such does not seem probable In
asmuch as he ia a man of giant stat
ure and afraid of nothing.
"Old Bill Bradley" as he is fam
iliarly known ig this city has practi
cally lived the life of a hermit fov
the rnst thirty years. Seldom he
comes "to town, preferring to remain
at his home, a mere shanty, many
miles from civilization,
From the general appearance of
the surroundings It is supposed that
Bradley was Injured sometime yes
terday It is expected that more de
tails regarding the oncurrance will
be received this evening. Up until ?
o'clock tills afternoon it has been Im
possible to get Peel, the telephone
wires being out of commission.
