sentiment in oyor of democracy

Rod-three said fhey would supports
"M Kiniey. . He also - ac?rtaine t
that of the thirty-two men only
eight of them voted for Bryan in
1896 and the others cast their bal
lots for McKinley. He talked to
these men, who, like himself, are
traveling salesmen,' as to the feeling
in the respective, territories, and
they said that unquestionably the
drift was strongly to Bryan among
their, customers and many hundreds
of former republicans would this
year go into the ranks of the demo
cratic party. One of these sales
men, basing hia opinion on the ex
pressions of the merchants and oth
er citizens of the interior towns,
predicted that Bryan would carry.
Illinois by 100,000 majority. VIr.
Lamson is inclined to believe these
figures are a bit too high, but nev
ertheless, that the state will go
democratic. He then save:
"After leaving. Chicago, I went to
Peoriai And there found the same
condition existing among mercan
tile men as in the: metropolis of the
state. Of course it may sound fool
ish to talk of carrying Ohio, but it
would not surprise me to see Mc
Kinley beaten in hia own state.
My business carries me a great deal
among factories, and in three in
stances in , Cleveland I made a poll
of factory employes, and found that
Bryan is 'the almost unanimous
choice of the workingmen, a large
number of whom supported Mr.
McKinley in 1896.
"Few people can appreciate the
influence that 'Golden-Rule' Jones
is going to throw to Bryan. He is
a man of wonderful popularity, and
nearly all of those- who supported
him for governor last vear will fol
low his lead at this election. The
rural districts of Ohio can be de
pended on to support Bryan, and
with 'the working men following
Jones in . the cities, I believe the
state will surely swing into the dem
ocratic column.
"Coming to Washington from
Pittsburg on Friday last I met Sen
ator Wright, who is a republican
member of the Pennsylvania legislature.-
We opened a discussion of
politics, and soon bad the car crowd
ed with interesting listeners.' I sug
gested to the senator that we take a
poll of those present. The result
showed that thirtyseven out of fifty-three
intended to vote for Bryan.
Of those thirty-jseven it waB learned
that twentv-four had voted for Mc
Kinley in 1896.
"It has been ' ! my. experience in
past elections that traveling men
can come nearer to judging the pub.
lie pulse than any other class of cit
izens, and on the trains and in ho
tel lobbies a majority of them tell
me that Bryan is a 'cinch.' Nearly
all of the commeicial travelers are
betting on Bryan, and some of them
are not over-particular ; as to odds."

West Virginia, one of the republi

Beury's son married the governor s
daughter. Colonel Beurv is one of

Culonel Beurv's resignation has
thrown a damper on the republican

Dragged' Her into the Basement of
the Publje School Building, and
There Dealt the Awful Blow.
Jefferson, Or., Oot. 23. The vic
tim of a fiendish tragedy, which oc
curred here at 10 o'clock this morn
ing, is a 13-year-old school girl, Lu
lu Jonee, who now lies at the point
of death, from the effects of a brutal
assault at the hands of an attempt
ing murderer. Clyde Vaughn, who
is ,- a boy of 20, accused of the
crime, was the unrequited lover of
the maiden, and the attempt of her
life is supposed ;. to be the result of
a fit of mad and passionate jealousy.
The girl was lured to the basement
of the public school building, : there
struck on the head with the blunt
edge of an axe, and left bleeding to
die, She was found 30 minutes la
ter, the town . aroused to a fever
heat, and a posse of " citizens sent
out to capture her dastardly assail
ant.; This evening, ; at 8 o'clock,
Vaughn was tat en by a farmer bne
and one-half miles east of town, and
placed in custody. The town is
greatly aroused, and.there are grave
fears of Ij nch law.
About 9:30 ibis morning Clvde
Vaughn, janitor of the public school
building, came to the door of Prin
cipal A.: Wiley's room and an
nounced that some one" wished to
see Miss Lulu Jones. She immedi
ately rose and passed -out of ' the
room. Not returning within fifteen
minutes, Pi iocipal - Wiley and
friends of the girl, who knew that
trouble , existed between her and
Vaughn, became alarmed. The
Principal went to search for the
voung girl. He fond her in the
basement, sitting iu .an uprght po
sition covered with blood, with a
ghastly wound over her right tem
ple. A blood-stained axe lay near
by, where it had been dropped by
the escaping assailant.- She was in
a semi conscious state of mind, and
could not answer questions, save in
a rambling, unintelligable fashion;
Principal Wiley hastily summoned
a physician, and aid to convey the
girl to a near by residence, and tel
egraphed the sheriff. ' Dr. Hawk,
of Jefferson, immediately summon
ed Dr. Wallace, of Albany, and Dr.
Byrd, of Salem, as assistants. The
physicians entertain no hope of her
recovery. '
A citizens posse was immediately
organized, and Bent out in search of
Vaughn, ' to . whom circumstances
clearly point as the murderer. Sher
iff Durbin arrived from Albany at
1 :30 and took charge of the Bearcb.
No motive can be imagined for
the crime, other jthan a fit of mad
jealousy, aroused by the lover
Vaughn cherished for the young
girl. For sometime past he has tried
to win her affections, which she did
not in the least return. She lived
with her mother one mile south of
town, and was ab exceptionally
bright girl and a general favorite.
She was annoyed by Vaaghn's at
tentions, and urged him . to "cfewt.
Vaughn is the son of prominent,
parents in this place. He .has al
ways borne a good reputation, but
was called "odd" and "eccentric"
in his ways, and was retiring in dis
position. After leaving the school-
house, his father, Eli Vaughn, saya
be went home and started down the
Santiam River toward Buena Vis
ta. - ' "'"
Late last evening the young girl
recovered consciousness "sufficiently
to recognize those about her, but
was unable to give an intelligent
account of the circumstances lead
ing up to the crimev
Vaughn confessed the crime to hia
mother. After going home from
the echool house, be changed his
clothes, confessed his terrible deed
to his mother, took $100 of his
personal savings, and left town,
with 30 minutes head start of the
posse. Theories as to the motive
vary fro m the belief that it was a
deliberate, premeditated act, to the
view that it was the result of a sud
den fit of jealous passion. The boy's
love was sincere, and in no wise un
manly, it is said, and was
unrequited caused him to become "
morose and ' melancholy. There
were no other marks of violence
than the wound on the head.
Salem, Oct. 24. The Capital
Journal says: "
Sheriff Franis Durbin visited
Vaughn in his cell at Jefferson and
had a talk with him. The young
fellow seemed to be in a stupor and
paid no attention to the entrance of
the officers, but when spoken to, an
swered all. questions asked him,
without hesitation.
The first question Sheriff Durbin
asked hitn was: "Are you th&
young fellow who killed, or attempt
ed to kill, the girl in the basement?"
Vaughn answered simply "Yes,"
without looking up. In auswer to
further questions, he said that he
didn't know why he did it; that he
was firing up the furnace when the
thought struck him that he would
call thegirldown there and beat her
to death; that something jtist took
hold of him and impelled him to do
it; that the girl did not go into the
basement willingly, but he forced
her to go in, and then saw the axe
and picking it up struck her;' one
blow. ' He said he did" not' intend
to kill her', and did not know wheth-
in love with her or ever writing herr
