Ivan Ellmaker Causes Trouble
At Yoncalla.
Hun Away From Home Is Iditer
Captured And I.rfx-ked lit Jail
Sots lied Clothing
On Fire.
Angered because of hla Incarcera
tion in the city jail, Ivan Ellmaker,
of Yoncaila Ignited the bed clothing
with the result that he was almost,
suffocated yesterday.
From reports received form Yon
calla today, It appears that youus
Ellmaker has a mania for leaving
home without adv'sm: his parents
as to his prospective whereabouts.
For the fourth or flfHi tim-3 within
the past two years, the b.iy loft home

had been pone but a few hours,
however, when bis whereabouts be
came known, and Marsiml Wooster
was sent to bring him hack. The of
ficer arrived with the boy and he
was remanded to the city jail jail
awaiting disposition at tho hands
of the juvenile authorities.
Yesterday morning persons who
chanced to be In the vicinity of the
jail noticed smoke issuing from th
roof, and upon gaining entrance a
few minutes later, found the bed
clothing in flames. With the assis
tance of a few pails of water the
Are was soon extinguished without
material damage to either the jail
or Its occupant. Thinking that the

action the officers thought no more
of the incident and left the premises

Marshal Wouster responded only to

Keys at home. Running 'to his resi
dence, a distance of several blocks,
the officer soon returned with the
keys and the jail doors were un
locked. I'pou entering the structure
the room was found to be well filled
with smuke, while young Ellmaker
displayed evidence of distress. I'pon
investigation it was found that be

second time, presumably with a de

out revenge. After a few minutes
of diligent labor, the flames were ex
tinguished. Young Ellmaker is well known in
the vicinity of Yoncalla where he. has
caused; (the officers considerable
trouble in time past. Only a few
months ago he disappeared N from
home, and upon solicitation of his
mother, several posses were sent In
search. At that time it was pre
sumed that he had committed sui
cide for the reason that he left the
iamily home following an altercation
with his mother. The lad Is said to
possess a despondent disposition, and
has often made threats that he
would end his life.
, It, is probable that Ellmaker will
be brought before the juvenile court
and questioned at some length rela
tive to his recent acts. At least,
such a course is deemed advisable
by the Yoncalla officers who know
hini best. When interviewed follow
ing tho second fire. Ellmaker had
little to say, other than he had "11

ter searched the lad after the fire
and found a good supply of matches
on his person.

Cannon was held at St. George'?

In applying tho law, tho secretary

'particularly enthusiastic about
hose claimants who tell of the hnrd-

Revy Of Rnitrond Men Drop

the Nevers-Aston railroad promoters

doned the field by any means, at
the present time have representa
tives out securing rights-of-way for
the Clark project. One or two wise
ones claim to have recognized one of
a party of four that arrived this
morning from Portland as a man
who has made a number of trips 'to
Roseburg and Marshfield In the In
terests of the Coos Hay-RolHO road,
and as this party was later seen
headed west In an automobile. It
Is supposed that they are directly
connected with tho Clark project.

'be News reporter, however, that
there is a very good reason for the
apparent delay In announcing the
plans of Mr. Clark and his backers.
and that the month or September will
sin act mil construction commenced,
and that, any parallel surveys of any
kind will not and have not delaed
the Coos Hay-Eastern Oregon road,
the delay being occasioned by reas
one not connected with any outside
Influences .whatever. As Is usually
the casr the men who were in Rose
burg tl Is morning declined to give
out any Information, leaving the city
just as soon as they could arrange
for trarsportal bin. but the very fact
that t !'' are connected wit h the
Coos I ny-RolHo project Is evidence
that Mr. Clark's Interests are not
being neglected; and that some sub

or no', construction commences In
September, there are excellent, reas
