Fifteen-Year-Old Girl at Point of
Death from Assault.
SALEM, Ore.. Aug. 15. Still more
flnedish and brutal than the at
tempts before reported, It became
known to the sheriff this morning
that Ed Majors, who attacked two
women In West Salem yesterady,
made a third attack which was un
known until the report was sent In
today.
Effle Baker, lying on a cot, con
valescing from a serious surgical op
eration, was the victim of this as
sault. Her father, Charles Baker,
was away and her mother had gone
for supplies.
Majors entered the house and dis
covered the young girl. He asked ft'
her husband was at home. She an
swered in the negative, and he told
her on her response what his inten
tions were.
Girl' Condition Critical.
At that she began to scream fran
tically. Regardless of her screams
the negro started to attack her when
f oo t st e ps we re h ea rd on the po rc h
and the negro fled as one of the
girl's relatives entered the home. As
a result of this visitation Miss Baker
is lying critically til and physician?
believe that she may be at death's
door today, when yesterday she had
excellent chances for recovery,
Should this visitation prove fatal,
under the Oregon code Majors would
be guilty of murder in the first de
gree and the penalty would be the
gallows.
Mrs. W. Jorgensen, who was at
tacked by the negro on the Eola
road, about a mile from West Salem,
visited the jail this morning and
positively Identified Majors as the
man who attacked her. To District
Attorney McNary she told a pitiful
tale. She was accompanied by her
husband, who repeatedly made
threats because of the attack on his
wife.

THREE MORE DRUNKS
BROUGHT INTO COURT
The carnival of drunkenness that
commenced as early as Saturday ev
ening continued into yesterday with
the result that three more men were
arrested by Marshal HiifTtmin and
lodged In the city jail. Two of the
men were arrested while steeping in
socuded spots, while the third way
taken in tow while roaming the
streets In a drunken stupor.

mornliiK the "drunks" entered plcns
of Riiilty. Two of their number re
ceived Jail sentences, while a third,
who clnimod to hail frmn Sutherlfn.
was released by promising to leave j
town.
I. I. Mobley, who claims to be a
"bad man" from Texas, was tho first
man arraigned this morning. As is
usually the case, he said that he
partook of a few drinks but was
far from Intoxicated. Mobley'a plea
was discredited, however, by Mar
shal Huffman, who said that he was
hardly able to navigate without as
sistance. Marshal Huff man also told
Recorder Orctitt that Mobley Indulg
ed In considerable profanity upon be
ing locked In jail and threatened to
kill the entire police force and es
cape. Tnlly satisfied that Mobley
was guilty and that ho was undeser
ving of leniency, the recorder sen
tenced him to a term of seven and
one-half days In the city jail.
Charles Hen net t, who might well
be termed n "sleeper," admitted his
guilt. When arrest ed he was asleep
In the rear of a North .Jackson street
restaurant and appnred quite. Indif
ferent as to the consequences of bis
offense. Arraigned, he begged for
mercy, but without material results.
He was fined $10, and being without
funds will spend the next five days
In the city jail.
James Hayton of Rutherlln ad
mitted that he had been Intoxi
cated and asked to bo released thai
he might return to his native town
and resume his duties. He claims to
be a hardworking man and intima
ted that his present difficulty was

Smith told the dlstrirt attorney
Benson had always liunie a shady

the police of Spokane and Seattle.
When asked If he had anything to
do with the murder of the Hill iiun

Neither District Attorney llrown

There Is no denying but that every
body pot their money's worth in tho
fun they had out of the performance,
which, whilo not altogether metro
politan In rendering, was neverthe
less full of vim and action. The acetic
of the play was an Arizona cattle
ranch, with usual quota of cowboys
who.se rouKh ways and ability to
shoot straight were obscured by their
wholesouled and Kt'neroiia natures.
The villain, in the person of a re
vengeful Mexican; tho cowboy hero,
the beautiful niece of the cattle king,
-ui Eastern girl on a visit to the
ranch, were all .veil taken c.harac
(ers. A feature of tho performance
that elicited much applause was the
solo by Mr. Klnny, which was In
deed rendered with remarkable clev
erness. Intenseness of tho situation
in which Catullle, tho young Mexican
woman, shot and killed the Mexican
tesperado. was brought to a comedy
climax when, as the man pitched for

ed youngster In the audience breath
