OREGON CITY COURIER, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20 1903,
CHARGED WITH MAYHEM
Bob Gardner Will Be Tiled Today
For Crime Committed.
Bob Gardner was arrested at Wood
burn last Sunday and brought to this
city to answer to the charge of mayhem.
Mayhem means the depriving of any
one of any of his members used in de
fense or for protection. The crime Bob
Gardner is charged with was com mi ted
some several weeks ago. It is charged
that be gouged out an eye of Martha An
drews, a eqaaT living on the hill above
Oregon City, and the wife of Joseph, an
Indian known to pretty near everybody
in this city . The crime is all the more
terrible from the fact that the woman
was already blind in one eye and Gard
ner's act renderered her totally blind.
Doctors say that an operation will have
to ' e performed and the eye taken out
in order to eave the rquaw s life.
Gardner was brought down on the
train Sunday evening, handcuffed, and
was lodged in the county jail. He had a
hearing before the Judge Monday morn
ing and pleaded not guilty. tiiB trial
was then set for Friday, today, nd he
was remanded tolbe county jail to
await the trial. Mayor G. B. Dimick
was appointed by the court to defend
This is not Gardner's first offense by
any means. lie has done time in the
county jail more than once and was at
one time sentenced to seven years in
the state prison but whs pardoned at the
end of three years. He was tried for a
penal offense a few years ago ane was
allowed to go free with the understand
ing that he would leave Clackamas
county forever. H failed to keep his
agreement to do and relumed here a few
months later He is considered by those
who know him to he a degenerate and
the state prison is about theonly place
bad enough to hold characters of his ilk.
Gardner has an aged mother in Oregon
City, who is a nice, respectable old lady,
and it is not her fault that she has
reared a son as bad as Bob.
The minimum punishment for the
crime of mayhem is 1 year in state
prison and the maximum punishment
is 20 years. It is probable that Gardner
will get a good, long term at his trial to

TheQrandeat Spectacle Ever SUg-
Klaw & Erlander'a massively ornate
spectacle, "Ben-Har," is to be staged at
the Marquam Grand Theatre, Portland,
Oregon, for five nights, starting Tuesday
December 1st. Matinees are to be given
on Wednesday and Saturday.
The dramatization of Gen. Lew Wal
lace's great novel has been seen only in
New York, Boston, Philadelphia,
Brooklyn and Chicago and a few other
cities during the past four years. Wm.
Young, who made the dramatization has
succeeded most admirably in the produc
tlonof a drama which not only retains the
most absolute fidelity to Gen. Wallace's
great book, but which does not offend
the most devout Christian.
Pr fetaor Edgar Stillman Kelley! has
heightened the solemnity of "Ben-Hur"
wita music that is a positive delight to
the ear. The stage settings provided by
Klaw & Erlanger have never been
equalled in this country. The pictures
of "The Star of Bethlehem," 'The City
of Jerusalem from the Terrace Garden of
the Palace of Hur," "The Interior of a
Roman Galley ,""The Grove of Daphne,"
"The Fountain of Castalia," "The
Chari?t Race," "The Vale of Hinnom
and the Mount of Olives," are remark
able exhibits of the scenic art. To thess
are added some wonderful effects in light
ing, as iu tne Star of Bethlehem, a id in
stage mechanics, as in the famous
chariot race. The contrivances used to
make the chariot race, cost no less
than $15,'JO0. Eight horses race in full
view of the audience. Each animal
runs on a separate tread mill, and the
effect of Ben Hur's quartet of horses
winning is produced by electric power
concealed beneath ttie stage. An im
mense cyclorama representing the in
terior of the arena with its- multitude of
painted people in whirled across the
stage in the opposite direction from that
the horses are headed greatly. increasing
enily going with the horses. This is
not only a spectacular but a dramatic
success as well.
The greatjBcene which closes the play
is the healing of the lepers on Mount of
Uuves. Here hundreds of people are
arranged in picturesque groupings, the
whole forming one of the most beauti
ful pictures which has ever been pu- on
a stage. The personality of the Naza
rene is not;ehown in the play, but in
this scend the nearness of His presence
is indicated with the most intense im
pressiveneBs by a shaft of the purest
The dramatization is carefully con
structed so as to remove it from the
domain of the so called passion plays,
and while the Saviour is only 'referred
to, lyet his tremendous dominating
power is felt with thrilling effect.

Mining Party Which Left Last Week
Left Outfit oa Banks of the
Last week P. A. Fairclough headed by
a party earring supplies to for the Ogle
Mountain Mining Company to Ogle
Creek. Because he feared the snow
would be too deep to render travel
pleasant over the Red . Rock trail the
party took the lower trail, crossing the
Molalla river . They proceeded as far as
the Molalla river and found that stream
to be past fording. They camped on the
banks of the stream for a while, then
le iving one of the party to guard the
remainder returned home to await the
falling of the river.
On their return they discovered that
the heavy wind f-torm that had occured
since they went in, had laid low many
of the big trees which had fallen across
the trail in such a manner as to render
travel over tbetrail exceedingly difficult.
The party left again the first of this week
and expect to be able by this time to ford
the river. Fairclough says they will get
across even if tbeg have to build a raft.
It is said that snow has already fallen
lo a depth of two feet on parts of the
Red Rock trail. Consequently travel
over this trail is practically stopped.
Fairclough says they tound considerable
snow on the lower trail but not enough
to impede their progress.

will work a force of several men this
winter doing development work and they

The Coming Campaign.
To the Editor. In the Courier two
weeks ago, I noticed that the Democrats
of Clackamas county held a meeting in
Oregon City to arrange the preliminaries
for the coming campaign. That they
lso decided to "go it alone" this time,
that is they intend to run a straight
Democratic party ticket. ' Though not a
Democrat, I wish to say, "Well done."
For the first time in ten years will the
iasues before the country be represented
in their simplicity again. There is to
be no confusion. The Democrats nra
