Vidama, Cat. Feb. 19. Evans and
Morrull ire now behind the bars in the
county jail, having iiirreniJered to Sheriff
Kay todty. Negotiations between the
officers and the bandits were carried on
by letters delivered by Kvana young boy.
Evans came In tliia morning, lie looki
very rough and needed a bath. Morrell
looked si'nous as though not apprecia
ting his condition. Evans and his part
ner had taken refuge in Evans' own
houae, and as the officers had them cer
tainly and exactly located, the preniiwa
were closely hemmed with guards, and
a peaceful surrender, or a desperate and
bloody fight were two apparent contin
gencies, the Utter, of course, being con
sidered the moot likely to hapien.
At 9 :15 A. M. a meaaenger was sent to
the bouae with a note from Sheriff Kay
and another from a Catholic priest, ad
viHing them to surrender to gave lite, as
their capture was certain. The outlaws
detained the meiiaengcr as a hostage.
The bouae is small, only two roome,
and esaily commanded by the officers.
After waiting an hour for the return of
Beaaon, the mesaenger who was sent in
with notes to Evans and Morrell aeklng
foi their surrender, it became evident that
be was held as a hostage, and the posse
clotted up, waiting for further develop
ments. At 10 o'clock Evans sent out a
child with a note tor Hheriff Kay, aHkin
htm to come into the bouxe lor consulta
tion. It was then ascertained definitely
from the child that one wuuien ami some
children were in the huse besides the
hostage they held. After an exchange
of several notes between - Evans and
Sheriff Kay, they finally agreed" td roine
out if the officers would be inslrucled
not to shoot, and the lare crowd of
people who had gathered to witness the
afTsir were sent back. . . 1 -
At 10 :40 the door of Evans' cabin
opened and Morn-It apeured and held
up hit: hat ds, fwllowud immediately by
EvanS without amiB. They were imme
diately covered by twenty rifles and
Sheriff Ksy and Marshl Gard advan
ced and shook bands with Evam. A
delivery wagou was pressed into service
and they were driven rapidly to h!1.
Iteason, the man who was captured
and held as a hostage, is an old friend
of EvanB. He says that when he rapped
at the door of the cabin, Evans appeared
with a gun in his hand, and after he
ascertained who wanted admittance,
jerked him into the cabin and immedi
ately slammed and jerked the door. He
then had Reason tell him the exact sit
uation on the outside and asked his ad
vice. Beaaon told him the whole coun
try was aroused, that hundreds of men
armed with shotguns, rifles and revolve is
were concealed behind every fence, out
building and point of of vantHge, and it
was impossible for them to escape,
f hey were only waiting for the women
and children to be removed to make
an attack on the house. Fina'.ly
Evans concluded it would be impoeeible
to escape, and, making a virtue of neces
Evans looks very thin and pale, as
though he had passed through a severe
spell of sickness. There is great rejoic
ing here at the capture, as many persons
had reason to fear his vengeance for
giving infornmtioii to officers, and there
was a general belief that some valuable
lives would be lost before he could lie
captured. He is now safely lodged in
the county jail, and it is safe to say will
not be given any opportunity to escape.
Feb. 20. Evans was today sentenced
to serve for life in the state prison and
is now safely locked behind its doors.

Governor Gill today honored the requiei
tion of Governor Pennoyer of Oregon,
for the rendition of George F. Russell,
wanted in Linn county, Oregon. Ktissell
was short in his accounts, forged the
name of Yost to cover bis shortage and
is now under arrest at Bushnell, Mc
Donough county, where he has wealthy
and prominent relations.
Trying to Ontda Beed.
Washington, Feb. 15. Democratic
leaders of the house have under consider
ation the following rule intended to dis
courage the practice among republicans
of refraining from voting on important
measures, and compelling 'the democrats
to produce a quorum: "Whoneverupon
a rollcall a quorum fails to appear, upon
the demand of any member the clerk
shall certify a list of members not voting
on such roll-call to the sargeant-at-arms,
who shall deduct from the monthly com
pensation of each member so failing to
yote the amount of his salary for one day ;
provided, this deduction shall not be
made In case the member is absent by
leave of the house," This rule simply
carries ont the provisions of the law,
which says the salary of members absent
except on account of sickness, should be
deducted during the time of absence.
Heretofore, however, the sergeant-at-arms
bad no way of officially ascertain
ing the absence of any member. It is
thought the bss ol pay for failure to vote
will put a stop to the practice of refusing
to respond when called to yote.

Bapremt Court Bniineaa.
Washington. Feb. 20. Justice White,
the new member of the Bupreme coart,
will be sworn in March 5, that being the
first day of the spring term. He will at
once be called upon to take part in the
consideration of more important litigation
than has greeted a new justice in many
years. For many weeks the court has
been anxiously awaiting full bench,
and in the meantime important cases
haye been fixed for hearing at such time
as a new justice should take his place on
the bench. These cases were finally set
for March 5 in the hope that a nomination
and confirmation might be made by that
time. The records of the supreme court
show accessions of Justice White It a.'es
New York state without a representative
in the court for the first time since 1306,

Boitoa'i Unemployed Aik Aid.
Boston, Feb. 20. 20 Five thousand
unemployed made a demonstration on
the common this afternoon which threat
ened a riot. In an ugly mood they
crowded into the statehouse and adjoin
ing ground and demanded immediate
aid. The governor addressed them from
the statehouse. He was received with
applause though he made no promises.
An attempt was then made by the
leader to get a petition before the legisla
ture then in session. A large force of
police was called out to guard against
trouble. The leader tried to get into
the legislative hall to present their griev
ances while the crowd remained outside.
