New York, Dec. 4. The medical
fraternity of "the country is watch
ing with absorbing interest the re
markable case of Aa Paulieon,
who has a large portion of bis brains
missing, one eye gouged out and
the entire frontal bone fractured
and etill iryes. The pitient is ra
tional and is pronounced to be on
the road to recovery. The surgeon a
are able to watcb the pulsations of
the brain through the orifice of the
sightless eyesocktt. - Marvelous to
relate the patient is not aware that
one eye it? destroyed and does not
ku that a load of buckshot tore
tb rough the brai a. He experiences
no pain and wonders wliu the Bur
geon will permit him to use bia eye.
The wound ws made I v a com
panion who was hunting and whoJ
polled the trigger of bis gun by mis
take. The surgtons intend to make
a new forehead tnd manufacture a
new frontal. They will take a fresh
ly am putated human bone, grind it
up, decalsify and mold a new bone
and then cover the tktn with a flap.
In lime the calcium salts of the
body will permeate this and make
a real b.ue.

HiJdboro, Or., Die. 5 Jam's
H. Burke, whose true name is Ham
lin, and who lor 6oma time resided
in the vicinity of 4 Troutdale, was
this morning sentenced to six years
in the penitentiary, upon pleading
guilty to a charge of forgery. Lst
August, Burke went into the Hol
land settlement, north of Forest
Grove, and represented himself as
an. agent of Baker & Hamilton, a
San Franci?cj firm. He said that
he was selling farm implements
and tools, and went to various fir
mer?, getting them to write their
names and addresses ' on the pre
tenee of having catalogues sent
them. " 'J-.-. ' : ;
He approached Walter Bernards,
a wealthy rancher, and secured his
name and address, asking B rnards
to write it down himself. This was
done, and a day or so later Burke
appeared at the Forest Grove Bank
and enquired if a note with Mr.
Bernard's name as security was
good. The bank replied in tbe af
firmative, and, as there were two
brothers by the name of Burke re
siding near tbe Bernards; farm,
supposed tbat it was a neighborly
loan. , 1 , ,
Ciehier Kane happened' to drive
by the Bernards home that evening
and found that no . one had - ap
proached him to act. as surety. This
caused alarm and Mr. Bernards
wen. to town the next morning to
intercept Burke when be was to ap
ply for the money. He remained
in seclusion, and, as Burke passed,
identified him as the man to whom
he had given the name and addreBs.
Burke went to the bank to cash the
note, passed the paper into the win
dow, and was. immediately covered
with revolvers by E. W. Haines,
the backer, and Cashier Kane. He
was brought here and Placed in
jail. .:, ; u t " ' '
A few weeks later he and J. T.
McNamara broke jail, "and were at
large for about three wetks. Burke
was located in Skamania county,
Washington, was arrested there by
Sheriff Totten." broke away from
that official while on the way to
Stevenson, wis later captured by a
balfbreed, and made his escape the
.second time ,by . ovfirpoweting' Jtiis
custodian, and went down into
Clark county, where he was cap
tured, at a brother's bouse, late one
evening, by Sheriff Biesecker, who
shot the fugitive in the groin and
arm while attempting to break a
way,' .. .
Before operating in Washington
county Burke passed forged, paper
a.t. Med ford and at Jeffdrson. . He
also planned a second , j.a,il .break,
promising to give Tromley $loo if
he would make keys to open the
corridor doors. The keys were com
pleted but were discovered by the
sheriff, and Tromley will serve two
and one-half years for the conspir
acy. Sheriff Sewell will go to Sa
lem Monday with commitments for
Burke, Tromley and . McNamara,
in for two years for larceny.
. Portland,' Dec. 5. It took the ju
ry trying Asa B. Thompson, ap
pended receiver of tbe La Grande
land office, just 38 minutes to bring
q verdict of acquittal in Judge Bel
linger's court yesterday afternoon.
The charge for which Thompson
had been indicted by the Federal
Grand jury, and tried in the Unit
ed states district court, was for al
leged solicitations of bribes. Cbas.
Cunniogham. and Inspector G reen,
of the interior department, were tbe
? . l . . mi
principal witnesses against, inomp
son, and they and Dallas O'Harra,
Glen Sailing . and Asa Ray burn,
came in for a terrificorensic denun
ciation from T. G. Hailey, assistant
attorney for the defense. (
The trial of Thompson has at
tracted wide-spread interest through
out Eastern Oregon, where the prin
cipals are all well known. The spe
cific charge against him was that
he was alleged to have attempted
to Solicit bribes amounting to $500.
The evidence against Thompson
was furnished by Charles Cunning
bam, "the Oregon sbeep king," and
Inspec'or Greene. From the begin
ning the evidence of any wrong do-
ihg an the part of the land .receiver
.aafso flimsy; that jthe day's pre-
cee,ding8 of the court were ..little
short of a farce., United States Dis
trict attorney John A- Hall .did the?
bad pa hand, ut the .characterfl
rnany.p! . the witne-ses ; iWare , most
viciously assailed by the attornev
ior the defense. Witness after wit
ness swore away .the character .of
Cunningham and O'Hara. Sailing
and Rayburn practically admitted' they - had comDoitted 'perjury,
and that they had sworn to falsa
land affidavits. It was tbe testimo
ny sworn to by O'Hara. Saiiine arid
Ttayburn that "moved Jgdge, Bel
linger, m his chargp , tn the jury, to
refer to them as tn'e ' three thame
less cbaracters". who lad .sworn
falsely in a case ii. which Cunning
ham was the beneficiary.
. .Judge Bsllinger, in his instruc
tion? to the jury, reviewed the case
carefully. It was very favorable to
Thompson aod he intimated that
from the evidence there was noth
ing to warrant the j ury fipdirig the
defendant guilty. -The jury retired
at 4:15 and in 38 minutes . . ;
rendered a verdict not guilty on alt
three of the counts.
Washington. Djc 5. Notwith
standing tne fact that a FederaL
Court .jury acquitted Asa B.
Thompson, suspended receiver of"
the L Grande Jand office,, of tbe
charge of accepting a brib9. Secre
tary Hitchcock declares Thompson,
cannot be reinstated. The secreta
ry informed Senator Fulton that
the mere fact of Thompson hajrjng
been indicted indicated that "some
thing was wrong," dnd the indict
ment, regardless of whether Thomp
son was adjedged innocent, f had
impaired bis usefulness as a govern
ment official. He then and- tbee
told the senator the delegation must
recommend some new man for ap
pointment to this receivership.
When tha Oregon senators learn
ed, this morrjiog of Thompson's ac-
qaittal, tbey forwarded to Secreta
ry Hitchcock telegrams announc
ing this fact. ., ...
After the Secretary, h,ad received
fbfl ffirpcrninf nrkfo tfiA rtfunnniaw
correspondent inquired at his offica
what, if anv. chansi it Uarl miHa
as to the secretary's determination
to dismiss Thompson, and. wa? told
the .secretary stood firm, and, more
over, that in calling on tbe Qrcgoa
senators to name a ney? receiver,
the secretary acted by specific direc-"
tlon frprjo the president. , . . ,-,',
Senator Fulton said today., when.
told of the situation, that no one
bad been recommended to succeed
Thompson, and nothing is likely to
be done - until Secretary Hitch
cock's formal acknowledgment of
the letter mentioned is at hand.
Both senators are indignant to
think, that Thompson; in view of
hia acquittal, is not to be reinstat
ed, but they have not determined
whether to engage in a protracted
controversy with the secretary over
this matter.
