apple picking. Mr. McComb fell from

YEARS, MEET HERE
There was a happy meeting in Ore

becca Tnrney, of this city, and Mrs.
Ray Phillips, of Cullom, Livingstone
county, 111., the latter of whom arri
ed In this city on that day. This waa
the first time the sisters have met
for thirty -seven years, they having
parted at their old home in Illlnola.
Mrs. Phillips says she will try Ore
gon for one year, and, if she
likes the state, will make her
home here. Mrs. Turney had
been visiting her two daughters and
their families at Tacoma, Wash., when

lost by her In reaching thla city. The
women had many pleasant remlnls-
censes to relate of their childhood
days. This Is Mrs. Phillips' first visit
- RISK LIVES ON TRAIN
r L. R. Waters, and R. M. Waters,
who were arrested at the Southern
Pacific Station early Wednesday
morning by Policeman Gtoen, were
released upon proving they were of
good character. Mr. Green saw the
men Jump from a train and command
ed them to halt, which they refused
to do. The policeman then fired to
frighten them and they risked their
lives by climbing through the moving
train. They were later found hiding
under the station platform. The fact
that they tried to escape caused the
policeman to think they probably had
committed a serious crime. They said
they ran because they feared they
would be arrested. .
A merchant of the city Identified
the men and said they were hop-plckera.

ELY TELLS THRILLING
' STORY Of BIG HUNT
Charles Ely. one of the best and
who was in charge of a hunting party
that went to Alaska, which waa eomr
poaed of Dr. Sternberg. Dr. John Mont
gomery. Dr. Mclntyre. of Portland,
returned to 'Oregon City Tuesday
morning, after a month's stay in tbe
wilds of the north. Mr. Ely reports
that there waa plenty of game, and
the party only .killed what could be
taten by the members. " . Seventeen
deer and three brown bears were
among the game that waa shot. Two
of the party went on a fishing trip
one day and brought Into camp 500
pounds of Dolly Varderi trout, weigh
ing, from one to two pounds each.
Dr. Andr Smith and Charles Ely
caught a halibut weighing 350 pounds.
It waa necessary for Dr. Smith to put
a bullet Into It before it could be got
to shore. The fish fought desperately,
snd Dr. 8ralth'B bands were lacerated,
although be had on heavy gloves.
This flab is one of the largest of this
kind that has been caught where the
men were In camp. Mr. Ely says .that
some of the animals they saw while
hunting were nnsually . tame, and
many were left unharmed. Plenty of
ducka and wild birds were also seen.
The party visited Juneau, White
Pass, Sitka, Warm 8prtng Bay, Kel
lowsnow and other interesting points.
Mr. Ely says the grandest eight was
the Warm Spring Bay. Neer the bay
la a waterfall of 250 feet, and at the
rear of this Is a lake. This to located
near Sitka, and is visited each year
by hundreds of tourists. The glac
iers are alao a grand sight. Tbe
weather was unusually warm, and It
seemed strange to the hunters to see
Immense cakes of Ice floating down
the rivers and mountains on the other
side of them covered with snow.
Dr. Smith had an experience with
a large bear that he will not aoon for
get The animal, after being shot by
the doctor, started for the hunter, but
another shot ended its life within fif
teen feet of Dr. Smith.
Plans are being made tjy members
of the party for the trip north next
year. Mr. Ely visited at Vancouver,
B. C, before returning to Oregon
Just as the men were leaving on the
Bteamer for home a rich strike was
made twenty miles from 8kaguway,
and mec were rushing to the gold

YOUTH SURPRISES PROSECUTION
BY SAYING THERE WERE
STATE PLANS COUNTER ATTACK
Defendant's Assertion Tbat Dying '
Wlfo'a Blood Leaked Through
By Young Man.
Vs., Aug. 29. Aa auburn-haired boy,
talking swiftly, but clearly, revealed
on the witness stand today, to tbe sur
prise of both defense and prosecution
In the trial of Henry Clay Beattle, Jr, '
for wife murder, tbat be had observed
several blood -spots . along Midlothian
turnpike where the crime occurred.
- Hitherto It had been presumed that
no bloodspots were seen except one
near the place where Mrs. Beattle Is
supposed to have succumbed.
Alexander Robertson waa the boy,
and what he told the Jury unexpected-
the plan of the prosecution to rest Its
Point Scored By Defense.
Prosecutor Wendenburg announced
that It would be necessary for him
now to call at least aeven or eight wit
nesses to controvert the boy's test!- '
mony. . -
On direct examination by Prosecu tor
Wendenburg, when the Utter was
seeking to show where tbe boy found
a certain yellow hairpin similar to
that worn by Mrsj Beattle, Robertson
referred to Hs distance from the "first -bloodspot,'
"Were there two bloodspots V ask-
o6THarTf M. SmltBJTcOtniBet
tbe defense. In apparent surprise. -
The boy then told of a second blood
spot and of several other smaller
spots near It. The revelation concern
ing the presence of more than one
blood spot is In line with the conten
tion of the defense that all blood on ,
the road oosed from the car in wbJck
Beattle .alleges hla wife was sholw -
Theory Is Upset.
The prosecution's theory has been
that the large bloodspot In the road
at the place where Mrs. Beattle Is al
leged to have been killed resulted
from a murder committed outside the
machine, and not In the seat, as
The prosecution has pointed out by
witnesses that no blood was found on
either running board of the car, that
the dustpan underneath the car would
would have caught any blood that
trickled through the front part of the
machine from the seat, and that all
the blood visible had hardened on the
floor of the car Just beneath the steer
ing wheel. . )
