THOMAS MAROJ BRANDISHES AX
AND IS SHOT, SUBDUED AND
Deputy Sheriff Baker Friday after
noon directed a party in West Ore
gon City, intent on the capture of
Thomas MaroJ, who was wanted to an
swer to a charge of assault with a
dangerous weapon. MaroJ was era-
ployed in the paper mill and about a
month ago he chased Frank Bullard
and Mr. Cole around with a long
sharp knife. Indicating his mind was
unbalanced. Constable Bradley and
Special Officer Miles made an effort
to effect his capture, and flred 11
shots at MaroJ, not intending to hit
him, but the Polander took to the tall
timber, where he remained for three
weeks and came home Friday half
John Turner notified the sheriff's
office of the wild man's return and
Mr. Baker, accompanied by William
Reams, Ed. Surfus, Mr. Clark and
John Turner surrounded MaroJ's house
and demanded his surrender. The
man came to the door with an ax in
his hand and a determined expression
of resistance on his countenance, but
several shots were fired at him, one
of them striking the fleshy portion of
his forearm. This subdued MaroJ,
and he surrendered and was lodged in
the County jail.
MaroJ was committed to the Insane
asylum from this county last Fall,
and for a time thereafter his wife and
two children were aided by neighbors,
as MaroJ had left them In destitute
condition. Maroj was not searched
Friday until he was landed In jail,
when he delivered a loaded revolver
over to his captors. He made no at
tempt to use the weapon. He Ih aged
about 35 years. He was committed to
the Insane asylum Saturday.
