TRACY ON WAY EAST
AFTER SEEING HIS MOTHER, HE
IS READY TO GIVE UP.
Visiting Friends Near Roslyn
Outlaw Is Also Raported to Ba
Near Salem Again, and
Guards at Penitentiary
Seattle, July 23. A special to
the Post-Intelligencer from Roslyn,
Wash., states that a man reported
to be Harry Tracy spent Sunday
and Monday at Camp Creek, twen
ty miles from Roslyn, in Kittitas
county. It i3 stated that Tracy went
over the mountains on a freight
train Saturday evening. The sto
ry of Tracy's arrival at Camp Creek,
was taken to Roslyn by a miner
named Eisner. It is corroborated
by another miner. Tracy, Eisner
states, was met by friend?, and
they went to Cle Elum Lake, where
they camped for the night. Then
they went to Camp Creek, and there
Tracy was given food and his wound
dressed. Eisner savs his woun'd is
rather deep. Tracy, however, went
fishing Monday, and caught io
. The miners at the creek, accord
ing to Eisner, are in sympathy with
the outlaw. Sheriff Brown, of Kit
titas, and the marshal of Roslyn,
Refuse to believe the story. The
sheriff reached Roslyn, however,
after Eisner had left for Camp
The report states that Tracy and
his friends are heavily armed, and
the outlaw is still carrying a white
sack filled with ammunition. Eis
ner declared that the murderer said
his wife was at Palmer Junction,
but that he was on his way East to
see his mother. After he had seen
her he said he would be ready to
give himself up.
Tacoma, July 23. Tracy, the
outlaw, appeared at Miller's logging
canr p, four .miles from Kankskat,
yesterday, and ate dinner. When
asked why he did not take advan
tage of the lull and esceape from
Green River Valley, Tracy said:
"I have some business to settle
with'Merrill'a brother. I under
stand that the brother want3 to see
me." Tracy is not wounded and
and looks fresh and rested. He is
wearing a derby hat. He had a
sloach hat in his pocket. He still
has his Winchester and two revolv
ers, and has a good supply of am
munition. This report comes from a reliable
source to Sheriff Hartman from a
breakman who'formerly worked on
the Northern Pacific, and was in
Millers camy, and knew Tracy years
ago as a Tacoma brakeman.

Settle, July 23. Since Tracy's
disappearence, last Thursday, not
one word has been, received as to
his whereabout?. Sheriff Cudihee
has left Seattle without, saying a
ward as to his defctination, and it is
presumed that he is on a still hunt.
Cudihee went alone last Monday
Salem, July 23. A report reach
ed here this evening that a man an
swering Tracy's description was
seen near Wood burn this evening.
Sheriff B. B. Colbath has gone to
investigate the rumor.
Frank Pickens a young man liv
ing in the outskirts of Wood burn,
met a man on a bicycle at ,7 o'clock
whom he took to be Tracy, the out
law. The bicycle path is within a
mile of Woodburn. Pickens was
on the path when the man believed
to be Tracy rode up on his wheel
and asked the direction and dis
tance to Salem. Ha resembled pic
tures of Tracy, wore a brown derby
hat, carried two Winchester rifles
strapped to his bicycle, and two re
volvers in a belt. After securing
the information desired the 6tranger
rode on in the direction of Salem.
Eighty rods behind the first man
came another wheelman, also heav-
iiy armed and apparently following
the first. Pickens at once hastened
to town and notified the authorities.
At Hubbard the same men were
seen half an hour earlier. Here
there were three, all heavily armed,
the leader snswering the description
given at Woodburn. The three were
on bicycles and riding toward Sa
lem. Here a number of reliable
people saw the strangers, and all a
greed that the leader resembled the
notorious Tracy's published pictures
Tne prison authorities were at
once notified, and Superintendent
J. D. Lee immediately took precau
tions to prevent any entrance into
the prison by the outlaws by plac
ing extra guards on the wall and
sending out a full force to surround
the priecn yard.
Salem, Or., July 23. The Ore
gon penitentiary is surrounded to
night by armed guards, watching
for the appearance of Desperado
Tracy. While it is not believed
that the men seen at Woodburn are
Tracy and confederates, the prison
officials ure proceeding upon the
theory that the report received may
be correct. There is practically a
dead line extending around the
prison at the dietai.ce of a rifle shot
and prison guards tonight telephene
the sheriff cot to approach the pen
itentiary unless called for, as he
might be shot by the sentinels.
Any man who goes near the pen
itentiary at night does so at his
peril. Prison officials do not be

St. Louis, July 16. A jest be
tween Captain Richmond Pierson
Hobson and Miss May Cerf, of St.
Louis, came near costing the girl
her life this afternoon at the Piazza
Chautauqua, near East St. Louis.
Banteringly the girl asked him
from the deck of a river yacht if he
would recue her if she should fall
Laughingly the naval hero, who
wasswimming in the river, replied
that he would take pleasure in do
Immediately there was a splash.
The girl had jumped into the water.
She could not swim and was sink
ing. Hobson started to swim to her,
with long powerful strokes. He
was accompanied by his swimming
companion, Albro Giberson, of El-
The river was swollen by recent
heavy i sins and the two powerful
swimmers were buffeted about by
Captain Hobson slightly in ad
vance of his companion, turned with
the tide and, floated, scanning the
yellow waters for a glimpse of the
white hat and skirts.
Suddenly he dived. The specta
tors who had been screaming and
shouting, now held their breath.
In a moment he reappeared, and as
the crowd saw that he grasped the
girl recurely around the shoulders,
a mighty cheer went up.
It was five minutes before the
half-Etrangled, almost unconscious
girl, and the two men, t-xhausted
and pale, were drawn to the deck of
Powerful swimmer that he is
Capt. Hobson probably would have
gone to the bottom of the Mississip
pi with the girl but for the aid of
his companion. As it was the two
were unable to do more than keep
the girl's head above water. It was
impossible to swim with her against
the tide with her heavy garments
dragging her down.
After administering the restora
tives Miss Cerf revived. To one of
her girl friends ehe said :
"I know I was very foolish, but
I knew I would be rescued."
Captain Hobson, who was pant
ing at the deck rail, smiled grimly,
congratulated her and went into the
cabin to dress.
Captain Hobson had delivered a
lecture at the Piasa Chautauqua in
the afternoon, and at its conclusion
was invited, with a party of young
ladies to go on the yacht Camida.
Here some one told Miss Cerf she
could not induce the captain to kiss
"I guess not," 6he replied, "but I
can make him rescue me," and it
was this remark that led to her
risking her own and Hobson's life.

CELEBRATED THE ARRIVAL OF
NUMBER TWENTY-ONE WITH
Whistling Instead of Choir Music
In a New York Church Whis

man and She Delights
New York City: When it was
time for the oifertorv in t he Lexine-
I ton Avenue Baptist Church, 111th
and Lexington avenue, during yes
terday morning's services, instead
of the choir, a pretty young girl,
dressed all in white, faced the con
gregation. T.GSn, for the first time
in the history of any church, prob
ably came the soft sweet note of a
The whistler was Mis3 Louisa
Truax. Schumann's classic "Trau
merei" ("Dreaming"), regarded by
musicians as among the most beau
tiful melodies ever written, was her
The notes rose loud and clear
and then died away in the softest
pianissimo. Thare was just a gen
tle accompaniment on the organ by
Miss Magdalene Worden, which
added to the beautiful effect. The
congregation sat enraptured, and if
it had not been a house of worship
there would have been an enthusias
Church over, the congregation
swarmed about the pretty girl and
made her whistle again. She re
sponded with the "Mocking Bird,"
all trills and runs.
Then she had to attend again at the
evening services, when slie whistled
the '-Flower Song, by Mendelsshon.
Evesybody was del'ghted, from the,
Rev. Dr. John M. Campbell, to the
newest member. In all probabili
ty, Miss Truax's solos will be a reg
ular part of" the church's musical
service in the future.
Miss Truax is 19 vears old. She
is exceptionally pretty and grace
ful. Her dress yesterday was of
stylish but simple cut a fluffy
mass of muslin, lace and ribbons.
Six years ago, when living in De
troit, she discovered her gift. She
began at once to cultivate it and
practiced several hours daily until
ehe attained a register of three oc
taves far more than any human
voice can attain.
Two years ago as a girl of sev
enteen she made her first public
appearance, after a thorough coach
ing by Mi33 Emma Thursby and
Mme. Cappiani, and William Chap
man, of the Rubinstein Club.
"The whistling of most persons,"
said Miss Truax yesterday, is
marred hy a puffing sound. This
may be completely stopped by al
lowing the tongue to tremble. Let
it relax and lie perfectly limp. The
muscles of the lips must be culti
vated and kept strong and firm.
The very high notes are produced
by drawing in the lips, and making
the opening as small as possible.
The lower notes are made by purs
ing the lips and making a wonder
ful effect on my lungs. My expan
sion has increased greatly."
During the whistling one little
girl sitting beside her mother in
the church leaned over and said
loud enough for thoss nearby to
hear her: "Mamma, it sounds as
if it came from Heaven.".
To have given up would have
meant death for Mrs. Lois Cragg, of
Dorchester, Mass. tor years she
had endured untold misery from a
severe lung trouble and obstinate
cough. "Often," she writes, "I
could scarcely breathe and some
times could not speak. All doctors
and remedies failed till I used Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion and was completely cured."
Sufferers from Coughs, Colds,
Throat and Lung Trouble need this
grand remedy, for it never disap
points. Cure is guaranteed by Gra
ham & Wortham. Price 50 and $1.

Warren, Conn., July 17. The
Misses White, sixteen and twelve
years old, daughters of ' William
White, of Warren, were seriously
injured today by a bolt of light
ning. As they stood dehind closed
blinds a ball of fire knocked them
unconscious to the floor.
A bolt entered Farmer Soucer's
barn in East Litchfield and tore the
horse's shoes from its feet without
injuring the animal.
From a tree a bolt glanced into
the residence of Charles Jenkins, io
Collinsville, and circled, ripping off
the border of the wall paper.
Mrs. Anderson, of Bristol, was
rendered unconscious. The light
ning blistered one foot.
Washington, July 17. Rear Ad
miral Yates Sterling today was or
dered to command the Puget Sound
naval station. Captain Burrell, the
present commandant, is assigned
to command the Oregon, which will
leave shortly for the Asiatic station.
Rochester, July 17. Francis Fitz
simmons, aged i2, and Judson
Armstrong, 11 years old, sons of
well-to-do parents, are under atrest
on a charge of attempting to wreck
a train. The east-bound passenger
train of the New York Central
which left Seneca Falls at 6:09 p.
m. yesterday slowed up as usual
rounding the curve at the bridge
crossing Seneca River, two miles
east of the village. When within
about thirty feet of the west end of
the bridge the engine struck ob
structions. Engineer Hoolihan stopped the
train, went back and found that
several guard-rail braces had been
placed on the rails in an evident at
tempt to wreck the train. Had the
engine been derailed at this point
it, with the train, must have gone
into the,river forty feet below.
Clayton, Miss., July 17. Wil
liam Ody, a negro, who last night
attempted to assault Miss Virginia
Tucker, of this place, was burned
at the stake at midnight.
The young woman was driving
in the country when she was at
tacked by the negro, and so violent
ly dragged from her buggy that
both her legs were broken. I She
was found a few moments later by
a doctor who was driving nearby.
She is said to be at the point of
After Ody's capture he was taken
before Mies Tucker, who identified
him. He was next led to a spot
near the scene of the assault." ' He
begged piteously for mercy, but was
bound to a tree, oil was poured
over hisclothing and a big fire
built around him.
San Francisco, July 22. Fitz
simmons was out on the road early
this morning. He walked to the
park, a distance of two mile3, and
running back, worked his shoulders
at every step. This afternoon he
did light exercising in the Olympic
Jeffries was also out on the road
this morning. He sprinted time
and time again covered with per
spiration. This afternoon he boxed
eight rounds before the Merchant's
Club of Oakland, with his brother
Jack and Kennedy. He showed up
in splendid condition, and is faster
and stronger th.m when he fought
Fitz before. He now weighs 214
pounds. Both men seem to have
full confidence. . The betting is 2 to
1 with Jeff on the long end. There
is plenty of Fitz money in sight, as
the Eastern sports are beginning to
arrive in numbers. The sale of tick
ets has already reached the $20,000
mark and the indications are that
there will be a $50,000 house.
Seattle, July 22. The hunt for
convict Tracy seems to have been
abandoned entirely and the outlaw
is now free to roam the woods at
ease -at least, until he again makes
his appearance at some farm house
It has been proven beyond a
doubt that Tracy did not have two
ex-convicts with him in the cabin
at Sawyer Lake, and also that the
story that he was badly wounded
by buckshot from J. A. Bunce's
gun was absolutely unfounded. The
story of the seriousness of the
wounds was given out by an ex
convict, who imposed upon Sheriff
Tracy must have escaped across
the mountains from Covington and
some of the officers fear he may
now never be captured. Thev be
lieve that he will disguise himself
and make his way to some Eastern
