Concerning Root, the paper says
-"Root plays the game for sll he
is worth, although comparatively
inexperienced. His work in the

very high order, and when the

creditable manner, after a series
of pretty end runs and tandem
plays." - '
" It says of Burnough at center,
The choice of a center is hard
to determine, as Burnaugh of Cor
vallis, and McKinney of Oregon,
re almost evenly matched. Bur
nough, .vhile io pounds lighter, is
given the place. Burnough is
nore active than McKinney has
played the game longer, and for
these reasons he is selected.
Of other OAC players it Fays:

criticism of his work can be made.

Grants Pass, Or., Dec. 12. The
Williams Creek Grant's-Pass stage
was held up by a lone robber this
afternoon. The stage was on its
way out to Williams when a young
fellow with a red mask appeared
from the woods, and, presenting a
revolver, commanded the driver
and one passenger to hold up their
hands. The appearance of the
highwayman was so sudden and un
expected that theie was nothing
else to bo done but to comply. The
robb?i then ordered the mailbags
to be thrown out. This was done,
and then he commanded the driv
er to drive on. Later it was found
that the mailbags had been opened
and ooly $15 in registered matter
secured, as the mail was light. The
efficera are in pursuit, Sheriff Lew
is, with two deputies, having gone
out to the scene of the'hold-up.
Ashland, Or., Dec, 13. Consta
ble M. N.. Long, on telegraphic
instructions from Grant's Pass, ar

baggage" of the southbound night
express,, who are wanted- for high
way robbery. TBey? arts Frank-
Miller, aged 27,, from Spokane;
George Moodyj aged 30,. and Wilr
iam Kirkpatrick, aged 18 years.
They are wanted at Grant's Pass
on EU3picion of having ' been con
nected with the hold-up of the
stage coach on the Grant's Pass-
Wilhams mail - route, which took
place yesterday afternoon.
At the time of the hold-up there
was only one passenger, Thomas
Kelly, on the stage besides the dri
ver, Edward Harriot. The stage
passed a narrow point on the road
a short distance from Grant's Pass,
when, at the point of a six-shooter
eld by a man whose face was
masked with a white handkerchief,
the driver was ordered to throw his"
money out. Harriot, who had $15
in one pocket belonging to himself
and I loo in another pocket
which he was carrying for a friend
of his, promjly delivered up the
$15. The passenger Kelly, had but
2o cents, which . he yielded without
. While they were thus engaged a
rancher named Bryant drove along
and he was also held" up by the
robbers, but "he had no money and
was ordered to make himself scarce.
He hurried to Grant's Pass and re
ported the affair.
The sam&day a miner, named A.
J. Heater was held up by two men
near the Dry diggings, who were al
so masked with white bankerchiefs,
aDd used revolvers in their work.
The elder of the two kept' Heater
covered with his gun, while; the
younger relieved him of his money,
$4-in silver and $5 in gold, after
which he was released and ordered
to "hurrv along."
The sheriff of Josephine county
and the deputy marshal tjok up
the tracks of the rubber.?, which led
to the . Southern Pacific railroad,
near Gold-Hill.. There they saw
the three men mount the blind
baggage of the southbound express
as it was pfftling out, and they wir
ed to Ash! and to arrest the meji.
