STILL AT LARGE.
No trace has bee a discovered ot the
h orsethief who left two stolen horses at
Dimick's livery stable in this city last
week. The horse etolen from Dixon has
been purchased hy Wm. Trimble, the
blacksmith. The other animal yet re
mains in the stable as also does the
buggy and camping outfit. Dr. H. R.
Jones, of Medford,avs he believes the
bay mare is his property which was
stolen recentlv, and gives a good de
scription of ber. The sheriff received a
telephone notice from aPortland attorney
Tnesdar claiming to represent a Mies
Glover of that city, who says she has a
bill of gale for both horse and buggy
which is signed by Tom Sawyer, and
wag given her. for a consideration by the
man who is supposed to ee the thief.
Thursday morning Jones came down
from Medford and immediatly identified
the bay mare ae his property. He says
she was stolen from him at Medford four
months ago. The night after the mare
was stolen the other horse was stolen
from Dixon at Grants Pass. The two
towns are 35 miles apart and the thief
must have ridden a distance of 35 miles
on the day intervening between the
robberies. There is no clue as to where
about of the thief. The man who gave
Miss Glover the bill of Bala is believed
to be the same man who left the hori-es
at Dimick'8 stable, and necessarily the
horsethief . Miss Glover is believed by
the local authorities here to be a half
sister to Sav yer. One thing that makes
the whole thing look queer is the fact
that the bill of sale was onade out the
day after the horses were left here.
Sawyer had evidently gone to Portland
and given Miss Glover the bill of sale.
She claims that she let him have $15.
Wednesday afternoon W. A. Hayes,
of Portland, came to Oregon City in
search of a wagon which had been stoien
from him a lew days previous. He
thinks the wagon was stolen by gypBies.
Anepkyoke had been: stolen from the
Btabh of A. Robertson a day or two pre
vious, and this circumstance taken wth
the fact that the wagon was minus a
neck yoke leads to the belief that both
wagon and neck yoke were stolen by the
same parties. In the meantime
the gypsies had 'Molded up
their tents like the Arab and silently
sto;en away," and Mr. HityeH did not re
cover hie wagon.
