For Revival of Rollerism
What They did to Levens,
when Creffield got tar and
"If there were to be a revival of
Holy Rollerism, I would be the
natural leader; but I do not intend
to take any further interest in that
faith. I do not know what others
intend to do, but if they wish to
practice that doctrine any more,
they will have to float in their own
That was the statement of Maud
Hurt Creffield, made to her father
in Seattle before Mr Hurt left there.
It was brought out by a report in
circulation there to the effect that
an effort is to be made to get
former Creffield followers together
for the purpose of continuing wor
ship in that faith.' The report had
wide publicity, and according to it,
Levins, a former Corvallis man and
former member of Creffield's fol
lowers wrote letters inviting all the
Rollers to assemble at a point , in
British Columbia, where he could
take up the leadership and resume
It turns out however, that the
only letter written by Sevens was
to Maud Hurt at Seattle, and that
the letter was not an invitation to
her to go to British Columbia, bnt
an ordinary epistle, such as any
person similarly situated would
write. The writer added : incident
al to other things, . that if Mrs.
Creffield was in need of assistance
that he would be glad to serve her
as far as possible.
That was the only lettei , written
by Levens, and that is all there is
to a concerted movement for a Rol
ler revival. None of the faith in
Corvallis have received letters from
Levens or from others on the sub
ject. The Seeley, girls, former
members of the Corvallis Rollers
are now at the place where Levens
lives, and that is supposed to have
given rise to the report.
The incident recalls a little in
cident in the carder of Levens.1 He
and a man named Campbell were
with the others in the house across
the Willamette, the night Brooks
and Creffield were . tarred and
feathered. With Creffield and
Brooks, they were brought by the
vigilantts across ths Willamette to
the place of operatiops. They were
commanded along with the bogus
prophets to s'rip, and like theirt
chiers were quick to obey. , There
was but little falteiing or. hesitation
when oiders were given that night;
After tar nd .feathers had been
applied in bjuiiful t refusion to
Creffield and Jstuoks the vigilantes
turned to Campbell and Levens.
On the top of the head of each a
gob of tar was poured , and in it
feathers were stuck, giving the
men the appearance of Indian chiefs
With these and a little daubing in
another place or two, Levens and
Campbell were let off. '. Nobody
ever saw either of them afterward
in Corvallis. They got away with
great dispatch, and the late letter
from Levens, is the first heard of
him since by the general public.
Levens worked around Corvallis
for some time, having been at one
time engaged in logging. Campbell
worked some with him in the latter
employment. Campbell was a bald-
headed man and the tar on the top
of his pate is said to have given
him a dashing appearance, f
Maud Hart's declaration that she
has done with Rollerism, and a
similar announcement by Frank
Hurt makes it pretty likely that
there will be no more of that wretch
ed practice. In fact, when George
Mitchell pulled the trigger of his
revolver in front of a Seattle drug
store on that late eventful morning
he laid low the incarnation of Rol;
lerism, and provided for its oblivion

for him to remove the man by God's
Mr. Bildwin in conclusion, eaid
that Crtffield once sent bim word
that God would tnrte him unless
he cave up bis daughter to the Ho
ly Rollers. He also addtd that the
girl aseumad the Holy Roller garb,
a thin wrapper.
: W. T. Gardner, of Portland, su
perintendent of the home of the
Boys' and Girls' Aid society, testi
fled regardirg the confinement of
Miss Esther Mitchell to that insti
tution. She was sent there because
of her Holy Roller pi actices. George
Mitchell, ber brother, came to htm
one day and sa'd Creffield was
planning to abduct the girl from
the home. He asked that special
care be taken of her.
Later, Frank Hurt, one of Cref
fiela's lollowers, was seen hanging
about the society's grounds. Wit
ness said that he was informed that
Creffield .had selected Esther to be
theme the; of a new saviour, who
was to be sent into the world, by
God,' and. that it was for this reason
he had attempted to secure her re
lease, i .
" Mary J. Graham, matron of the
society, gave' similar testimony.
Sae said Esther was incorrigible in
her Holy Roller practices, insisting
upon rolling upoa the floor . and
praying until late in the night.
Witness feared to .have the girl
about, fearing she might be seized
with a hallucination that God had
commanded her to kill some of the
children or keepers. Witness add
ed that Mrs. Starr was also detail
.( d by Creffield to . abdnct Esther,
but was iTtventtd from accomplish
ing tbatend. ; ; - .., j
Mr. Starr came to the Lome sev
eral time?, until she was finally
threatened with arrest if she ever
showed up again. ' !.
It is generally believed b re that
the jury ia prepared at this moment
to acquit Mitchell. Close observa
tion of the jurors during the court
sessions reveala plainly that the fre
quent arguments cf the state over
minor legal technicalities is irritat
