Bradley's Body is Buried Near
DOCTOR RETURNS HOME
Small Purse Containing $tl Found
In the Cabin Also nil Unused
Check Hook On Califo-tiln
Wet to the skin and suffering from
cold and hunger. Dr. Stewart, of the
well known medical firm of Drs.
Seely. Sether & Stewart, accompan
ied hy Willie Smith, a well known
young man In this vicinity, arrived
home late Saturday evening from
Capps Iliahee, where the former was
called by a message conveying the In
formation that "Bill" Bradley, the
hermit of the Iliahee district, had
been seriously injured and was in
dire need cf medical assistance.
Upon arriving at Bradley's cabin
the lifeless remains of the unfortu
nate man were found lying upon a
poorly constructed bed, all evidence
tending to show that he had been
dead for at least three days. In fact,
mortification had set In and it was
almost Impossible to enter the ca
bin. Rather than remain in the vicin
ity of the dead man's home, ehslclan
and party spent Thursday night far
ther up the mountain, returning the
next morning for the purpose of in
terring the remains. The body waa
buried near tho cabin occupied by
Bradley luring the past R4 years..
An examination of the Injuries
showed conclusively that Bradley had
attempted to mount a fractious horse,
and in so doing had been thrown
and dragged through the thicket.
His right leg showed signs of abso
lute paralysis, while the body was a
mass of wounds. Slight bruises were
also evident upon the right knee and
After Interring the remains the
physician found a Email purse con
taining al'Oiit $( in silver, an well as
a cheek book bearing the title of a
California depository. No checks had
been torn fiom the chock hook.
Dr. Stewart states that the trip was
a most difllcu it one Inasmuch as the
streams were very high, while the
trails were covered with sand and
debris, making traffic almost impos
sible. As near as can he ascertained
Bradley had about twenty horses on
ihe range at the time of his death.
One of thef-e, a sorrel mare, ami the
animal which was probably respon
sible for the accident, is mi-iiifj n is
the saddle- owned by Bradley.
Those who have resided near Brad
ley dining his 34 years residence In
the Illahee district maintain that he
he has several thousand dollars, most
of wheh thy assert Is deposited Jp
The only food In the cabin upon
the phvsiclnns arrival was a sack of
flour and a small quan.ity of bacon.
William Tipton, an uncle of Hrad
?oya left this mornimr for Bradley's
place, expecting to bring nut the
horses. He will probably return as
soon as tho streams become normal.
At the time of Bradley's death no
one was with him. both Wrlcht boys
having left the cabin for assistance.
Aside from a father Bradley Is sur
vived by a brother. Dr. Bradley,' who
is at present In the east. He also has
several other relatives, most of whom
reside In this section of the state.
UST WORK FASTER.
Or Will Get Xn Mow Street Paving
Cotltl lK is.
Salem Statesman:. That the War
ren Construction Company will have
to he more energetic in Its paving
work In the Capital City Is evident
from an ultimatum sent to the corn
pan v by Moyor George F. Rodgers
Mayor Rodgers stated yesterday
that the street improving during the
past year had been held up on ac
count of no crushed rock being on
hand for the work. It Is understood
that now tho Warren people are not
doing any work on account of the
weather and the crusher is also Idle.
That the reck crusher at the quarry
should be working full time every
day grinding out foundations for pay
ments already contracted for and con
templated for next year Is tho conten
tion of the city's chief executive.
"Here after," he sayn, "all rock
must be be In readiness nnd the work
guaranteed to be completed within
the time specified in the contract or I
will not sign the contract."
From the stand taken by the
mayor. It will be seen that, the city
officials are determined that no more
dragging ont and delaying of work
by contractors will be tolerated and
streets once- torn up will be Improv
ed in the quickest possible time con
sistent with thoroughness of consti ac

not been put through this year, al
though petitions for the work were

Contractors, who had started work
on streets and were unable to finish

to put the roads in a passable con

done, but the fact Is evident, how

for this work. Streets thick with mud
