officials found the Wrights camped
near the summit. The girl was takea
from the group and returned -to La
Oraude' with much attention to her
comfort but the Tatner and mother
were left there. The girl la now in the
hands of tender mothers and she will
be taken to Portland at once and re
placed in the school.
Yesterday several clews were run
down but nothing of Importance devel
oped In the whereabouts of the family
until last night when the final chaS'J
was commenced. '. -'
To those who have autowl up the
sleep side of the Blue mountains to
the summit on the Toll Cate road, the
physical task undertaken by the fam
ily looms up as stupendous. The fu
gitives probably got assistance in their
! trip from Union to Summerville yet it
is probable they walked a portion of
the Way.; The little girl -is frightened
and on her return to La Grande would
talk but little. How the little tot, fresh
from the comparative ease' of her
school, was able to trudge along with
the fleeing parents anjri cover so great
a distance without physical collapse is
more than the officials can understand.
