very possible that the case would be
taken to Lane county. '

District Attorney Talks. ,
When asked whether or. not hr
thought a change of venue would be
granted In the Bruintleld case. Dis
trict Attorney Neuner said: "I can
pot tell what the attorneys for the
defense will allege but all of their
arguments contained in the motion
will be Investigated to determine
whether or nqt the defendant can get
a fair and Impartial trial In this
county. It Is the duty of the Judo
and the prosecuting attorney to see
that he is given a fair trial and there
is nothing m my possession at this
time nor have I come in contact
with any evidence from the body oi
citizens m Douglas county that n
Brumfield or any other person can
not get a fair trial. I am not res
nonsihle for newspaper report. T.c
coroner's inquest testimony has ben
available and what has been priced
has been taken mainly from that
source."
Mint Show Reasons.
District Attorney Neuner stated
this afternoon that the defense at
torneys muat show statutor" reasons
for a continuance of tne case in or
der to delay it for a length of SO
days.
"The defeiiM Is entitled to a rea-
Bonus Mass
cation for either the loan or cash.
"When the applications arrive In
Salem we are coin to look them
over carefully," said White. 'The
ones that are made out properly will
receive first attention and be pal'
without dr-lay. It will be Imperative
however, that the blanks be filled
out nronerlr.' .
"The appraisers will hsve much to
do with the success of the measure
In this state. We are taking all pains
to secure efficient men as appraisers
In the various parts Of the state."

TwoJail Companions Are Re
leased This Morning By
Circuit Judge
ALL QUIET IN THE CELL
Accused Man Will Now Have Oppor.
tunlty to be Alone and Think
Over Past Events Says Ho
W1U Go Craajr Lett Alone.
Pleas of "guilty" were entered
this morning In the circuit court by
Ray Kleth and M. B. Van Avery, tne
two boys who have been confined In
the county jail for tne past six
weeks on charges of stealing an en
gine from a burned auto which had
been abandoned in tbe Cow Creek
canyon. Judge Hamilton, upon
recommendation of District Attorney
Neuner. sentenced the boys to one
yerr lu the penitentiary and then
paroled them during good oenavior.
The two boys have been confined
In the same cell with Dr. Richard
Brum field, the alleged murderer of
Dennis Russell, and have been in a
position to watch his actions. When
interviewed this morning they told
of the accused man's demeanor dur
ing the time he la kept in the cell.
- "Dr. Brum field told us. that he
feels no remorse." said Van Avery,
when interviewed following his re
lease .from custody. "He. said that
it doesn't feel like be has killed any
one.' Healso says he doesn't re
member beina In Canada."
"Does -he talk about his wife and
children?" the reporter asked.
"Yes. he talks about them quite
.a bit. He seems to think his three
kids re the only thing. He talks!
about them lots.".
cused man spends his time In the
Jail, Van Avery, said: "Well, - he
reads, plays cards, talks and sings.
He doesn't appear nervous to us. He
has been walking up and down In the
cell quite a bit lately, but I -don't
think that is due to nervousness, ho
just needs some exercise. He sleeps
fine, eats as much as we do and
doesn't act a bit different Jhan any
other man."
"Did he hate to see you boys
leave this morning?" was asked.
"Yes, he said he would go crazy
if we left him there alone." :
Dr. Brumfield talked to his fel
low prisoners a great deal concern
ing memory lapses which he alleges
ne suffered in the east. He said
that sometimes the loss of memory
would Inst only a few minutes and
at other times would continue for
several days.'
With the release of Brumfleld's
two cellmates the accused man will
now have an opportunity to play
"solitaire" Instead of "BOO," and In
addition will have a chance to re
flect on past evetitR. His statement
of "aoing crazy If left alone" means
much.
' A FEW "WHYS."
Why did Brumfield express
v a package of women's closing
to Seattle on the day of the
murder?
Why did nrumfleld write to
a Canadian steamship company
some days before the murder
and request Information con-
cernlng passiiorts. tickets and
sailing dates to Australia?
Why did Brumfield make a
special erfort on the day of
July 13lh to make things ap-
pear normal?
Why did llrumfield virtually
disclose his whereabouts by
writing the exprea agent In Se-
attle to hold the package?
Why did Hrutnfleld on tne w
erenlnr or July 13tn drive w
around through Krorkway Into
Dlll.ird awaiting darkness?
Why was an open stretch on
the Pacific highway selected
for the killing of Dennis Rus-
sell?
v Why were letters certain to w
Identify Russell left on tne
body of the tnurneren manr w
Why has Investigation futleo w

murder? -
Whr were not all of the six

so as to completely blot out the
discovery of the crime?
Why was a spot 19 milej
