DESPERATE FUGITIVE RE
N LATES GRAPHIC STORY.

"I Am The Man You Lied To," Say
Captor aa Ho Cover
SALEM, Or June 23. (Special.)
Governor Weal today told a graphic
story of his thrilling pursuit and cap
ture of Jeas Hall, the escaped convict
who spread terror throughout thla
part of tbe atate, and did not sur
render until he was seriously wounded
and exhausted from hunger, loss of
aleep and exposure. The prisoner will
be allowed no privilege in future and
must serve the remaining fifteen years
of his term at bard labor. Thla la
the first Instance of a governor of the
state running to earth and virtually
capturing an escaped convict.
. The governor'a story of his remark
able achievement follows:
"We entered the canyon, and for
eight miles actually crawled on our
breasts, so thick was the underbrush.
We encountered windfalls, thistles,
and every conceivable obstruction
known In a timber country, and finally-
arrived at a stream, where one of the
boys discovered human tracka in tho
aand. We followed tbe tracka uutil
arriving at a amall Swiss settlement
where we obtained milk and "Other
Fire la First Clue.
While at the settlement an -old resi
dent came In the house and inquired
of ua as to who had built a fire In tbe
timber across Mary'a River, evidently
thinking some one had been violating
tbe forest fire restrictions, and the
thought came to- me that Hall was
responsible for the fire and I sug
gested that we investigate.
"After crossing the river I took a
shotgun and walked through the high
lorn, t n .Via varv Atm et 111. anmntll
and located the fire under a tree. Not I
wlahlns; to run Hall further Into tb'
mountains, and considering the dan
ger of being shot if I walked up di
rectly facing him. I crept around to
hla back, and was up within 80 feet
of him when I stepped on a twig,
snapped loudly. At tbe sound, I saw
a big form rise out of the ferns and
readily recognized Hall. Covering htra
with my gun, I ordered his hands In
the air. He was resting on his knees
when tbe posse came up to tie his
Hands Trown Up.
"The first thing he said was, 'Are
you the sheriff?' I told him that I
was not the sheriff, but tho man ho
had lied to, and he looked at me like
a whipped dog, and stuck both hands
high In the air. It wss a mighty good
thing that' Hall did stick his hands
up, too, as It was bis last chance to
see daylight If he had refused.
"When we found him. Hall bad ap
parently been lying asleep, and bad
bis gun strapped about hia wrist. We
took the prisoner to tbe settlement
and gave him something to eat and
then walked out of tbe canyon to
Blodgett, where we took the automo
bile for Salem.
"These people who have been roast
ing me for sticking to my prison pol
icy can have something else to talk
about," said Governor West "and one
of the principal reasons I had for go
ing after Hall was to show tnem tnat
I Intend to win."

seventy-five day each In Jail on

C. STEVENS GETS 8TRANGE
LETTER FROM MAN IN
The Madrid prisoner, who signs him
self Llborio Medel, and who sometime
ago wrote to P. J. Westengard, ask

letter to H. C Stevena. Tbe fellow
makes no threats, but bis letters In
many respects resembles those of tbo
blackhand. The following la a copy
of the letter received by Mr. Stevens:
"I am Imprisoned In this city arid I

has picked out Oregon City men to

he at one time lived here. . .

An electric lineman, nntll recently
In tbe employ of the Pacific Telephone

connection with the quadruple kill
ing. The man is said to have ceased hia
employment with tbo telephone com-
pany and to have gone to Portland
from Polk county several daya before
tbo crime was committed.
The . Information placing tho ltne-
man under suspicion waa furnished by
an electric lineman In the employ of
the Pacific Telephone ' Telegraph
company named Cook. Several days
ago he wrote Chief of Police Cox from
Polk county, where he and other men .
are now employed on telephone lines,
asserting that tho circumstances wore
of a nature causing him to believe
