Hold "Up Horseman " and Secured
Two Good MouDts Battle With
. Two Pursuers Last Seen
"La Center, Wash., June 17. In
it3 theatrical progress North the
man-hunt has reached this ordina
rily peaceful, village. Sheriff Marsh,
Sheriff Totten, Guad Carson,' the
bloodhounds and various members
of the numerous po38e are ere
spending the night after a day of
alarms and i)loodlee8 porsuit of the
convict murdereiv. Tracy and Mer
rill are not here, but they are sup
posed to be somewhere within a ra
dius of one or two or three miles of
La Center. Just where they will
be tomorrow morning the day will
only bring forth. ' From past- ex
perience with these expert and in
teresting fugitives, it is pretty safe
to guess that distance will lend its
more or less enchanting charms to
the. view the officers will then get
of their quarry. After a stern chase
lasting throughout the tntire day,
the officers adopted the scheme of
gttting to. a point ahead and thus
intercepting the" rogues' progress,
and it looked for a while tonight as
if the 6cheme would fce highly t-uc-cessful-
Tracy and . Merrill were
heard from, making their mysteri
ous way tcvard the town, and after
bobbing up eerenely-.for a few mo
ments tbev aaain took an opportune
Lunie for disappearing. -The whole
posse rusnecL out alter inem, leav
ing the little town in a state of un
precedented excitement; but they
came bact in due time emjsty
handed. .:; ;"
Unwearied by the. long chase af
ter them, and full of determination
and fight, Tracy and Merrill came
within 30 yards of two cf their pur
suers, Bsrt Blesecker and Luther
Davidson, of Vancouver, about 11
o'clock last night, on the . edge of
Salmon creek, between lenny ana
Betts' bridges, eight miles north of
Vancouver, and hunters and hunt
ed exchanged 11 rifle shots. One
bullet from one of the outlaws' : ri
fles nassed runder B'.etecker'a Jeft
armband went through his sleeve,
without injuring him. ;.. xlis horse
was struck four times -with bullets,
but the wounds ir.flicted are slight,
Blesecker and Davidson have been
two of the most-persistent .hunters
after the convkts since the chase
began, and worked together, usual
ly apart from tfie ; regular posse.
Sundav nisrht Blesecker and David-.
son patrolled the ground : near the
Vancouver poor Jarm, duc saw no
traces of the convicts. During the
?rrpat.er nart of vesterday they work
ed through the brush along Salmon
cretk, between the - railway tracs
and Felida, as Bksscker had a theT-
ory that the convicts would un
doubtedly . make tor . tne , baimon
Creek ; country on their way north.
About 11 o'clock last night Bleseck
er and Davidson were watching the
surrounding country from an open
spct, when they noticed two men
v alk down to the creak and take a
drink of water. The guards thought
the1 occurrence suspicious, ana
walked down a road i in , the direc
tion of the supposed convicts, to
make sure that they had met ' the
right men. -. -- .". .: . ... , .
VVhpn Blesecker was 30 yards
.distant he was' sure that the men he
the eloom were 1 ra
cy and Merrill, but found difficulty

the distance as well as he could, he
sent one bullet whizzing at tne con
victs. His fire was promptly re
turned, and one bullet cut- his left
coat eleeve. Davidson also fared.
Both parties then sought shelter,
nap.h evidently unawtra whether
their shots had taken effect. .
After hiding in tho darkness tor
a little over half an . hour, the man-
hunters concluded ; there was not
light enough to get a satisfactory
shot at the convicts ana waiaea io
the spot1 where they had tied their
hor3es, a quarter of a mile away.
Here almost by acciaeni, xney ais-
cqvered fresh tracks made in tne
road, as-if the outlaws had been a
bout to steal the horse, but had
been scared; away by approaching
footsteps. ' ..' - " - ' '". '.
"They can't be far away. Let's
lie in wait for them again. They
may show their hand," whispered

moment he twas struck ' by . other
bulleis frt)m the unseen foe, and
mm madlv in the direction of the
j Fouith Elain road, en route to Van
couver. It is curious tnat me oug
gy was not upset, considering the
rough ground and tne sp?en taKen
by the horse, but the latter never
stopped until be landed in Vancou
ver about 2 o'clock ttus morning..
B:esecktr immediately communi
cattd with Sheriff Marsh, whd had
been asleep, tired with -the hard
chase of the previous day, but after
consultation, it was deemed advis
able to await tho arrival of the
bloodhounds before setting out' in
pursuit. ; The news that Bleeecker
had arrived in town and that he
had narrowly escaped being wound
ed in a vital part, by one of the fu
gitives bullets, spread through the
place with surprising rapidity ,'and
in reply, to querries from curious
people, Blesecker at first denied
that he had exchanged shots with
the convict. But in converstaion
with he Oresonian corresoondeut,
the guard gave brief details of the
midnight encounter, and added:
"They took six or seven elip3 at me,
but did not get me."
Guard Carson, of the .Walla WaJ-
ia Denitentiarv. arrived witn his
bloodhounds at Vancouver at o o'-
clock ibis mornirg, and found the
manhunterB impatiently awaiting
for lum. The dogs" were taking to
the basement of a near-by hotel,
and CarEon had breakfast. . At 9
o'clock the start was made,' and the
various members of the posse tum
bled into their carryalls and bug
gies, clutching their "rifles and am
munition; ; . . ". ..''
The route was taken to the patch
of timber land near Salmon Creek,

Urhere B'esecker and Davidson had
their battle with the convicts, aridJ
the ragged clothes: which Tracy and
Merrill Ipft. vfeterdav - mornins? in
H nrv Llede'e cabin, near Orchard,
were shown to tneaogs. ine saga
cious brutes immediately began' to
bay, and at first walked around in
a circle.- It was a critical moment,
and it looked for a few minutes as
if the dogs were at a loss, but they
at last found a trail leading toward
the Minor country. ..The scent was
found leading : toward . Ridgefield,
But Tracy and Merrill were ahead
of. them doing business; : :
Two miles from Ridgefield they
bad held up A. Kauzler, who was
driving ; two horses for his son-in-law,
John Rathburn, ,and the out
laws rode on the horses, it is believ
ed, to Pioneer church, and-, then
turned in the direction 6i ; Lewis
yille and La Center, below the Law
is river. The bloodhounds were
mean while, hot on the trail, but
when within some little" distance of
La Center,-the dogs halted and were
at a losa how to procead. The scent
was aggain lost. : This wa3 about 4
o'clock this afternoon, and there
was nothing to do but to proceed to
La Center to dinner. The meal was
iust being served, . when a messen-
ger hurried iu ana siatea mas ne
had met and recognized Tracy and
Merrill about three quarters of a
mile from La ' Center. Men - and
hounds immediately started on this
new trail, and had not proceeded
very far when they heard a number
of shots exchanged, but after search
ing in the brush for a considerable
distance, not one single trace of the
fugitives could be got. Tracy and
Merrill were lost again, and preferr
ed to remain in hiding. ;
: "We're too far north now to rs
turn to Vancouver. Better camp
here tonight and watch bridges and
passes," was 'the -''cisiorr of the
council of war. So Jstectivea Snow
and Lerrigan wf ru sent to guard
one bridge five miles away, and
Day and Weiner agreed to hold up
onnfVmr hridaa aeainst all comers.
(Other members of the band are
guarding various cross-roaas in tne
vicinity, and will do their best to
bar the outlaws' further progress.
That is the last heard of the posse
tonight. It remains to be seen how
the famoH3 chase wil end. , , " .

MORE SUBMARINE BOATS.
Tallt of the United State Nary Bnild
Init Torpedo Boats o( the
Shortly the board of naval construc
tion will take up for consideration the
subject of increasing the number of
submarine torpedo boats. There is like
ly to be a division of opinion on the
matter. It is said: that Kear Admiral
O'Neil, chief of ordnance, and Chief
Constructor Hichborn are in favor of
building - more boats of that type,
while Kear Admiral Melville, engineer
in chief, and Chief of the Equipment
Bureau Bradford are not disposed to
favor the idea. Secretary Long will
probably be guided largely by the ad
vice of his experts in making recom
mendations to congress on the subject..'-:,
, There are some flattering reports
relating to the Holland, which is be
ginning to see practical service. The
boat, naval officers say, has contrib
uted a new and menacing element to
naval operations and has presented
new problems which must be met.
Capt. Folger. commanding the Kear
sarge, already anticipated this when
he suggested a provision of light tor
pedo boats to guard against the in
vasion by submarine boats. . - '
- It has evidently become necessary,
say the naval strategists, to add small
picket boats to the cargo of a big
ship in order to offset the effect of the
submarine boat. The seven boats of
the latter type now under contract
will provide a liberal strength in this
respect, but some of the naval officers
believe we should continue the work.
Others believe we should await the
result of the trials of the boats now
under contract and take advantage of
any improvements which may be sug
gested. ' " '' .. .' . . -"
