JOHN FERGUSON PLEAD8 WITH
DESPERADO FOR TWENTY
x. . . . . "
, ' '
A masked highwayman held up John
Ferguson, a well-known resident ot
Oregon City, and another man" at
Fifteenth and Washington streets ear
ly today. The highwayman made no
attempt to rob either, but kept hla
platol pointed at Ferguson twenty-five
minutes. The latter waa the first one
stopped by the desperado. While he
waa explaining to the would-Be Job
ber that he had no money, the other
man came up, and the highwayman
halted him. Both were compelled to
stand with their hands held up tor
about fifteen minutea, when the laat
man to arrive bolted and escaped In
the shadow ot a hedge fence, i
He ran down to Main atreet and
gave the alarm. Policemen Green and
Cook hurried v toward. Washington
street, and on the way met Ferguson,
who said the highwayman bad fled.
The police think the highwayman
probably waa trying to protect a com
panion who- had entered or waa as
tempting to enter a residence In the
neighborhood. - ' . .y
