'by 11101 Lyons, about 30 miles west or
Eugene, Is sinking fast from last reports,
and cannot survive the night.
The news of the occurrence reached here
this morning about 8:30, being brought
by Nate Chastalne, who was dispatched
for a doctor and had traveled with all
possible haste. His trip was Impeded by
a poor road, .part of which was covered
. with two feet of mow.
The facts," as near as can be learned, arc
as follows: Lyons has been wanted for
several months for stealing horses in
Josephine County last FalL He was ar
rested In that county, but escaped from
the officers and has been at liberty for
several months. It has been reported that
Lyons had made his boasts that he would
never be taken alive.
Lyons had relatives In this county. His
mother and two brothers lived on the
Wildcat road Just over the summit of the
mountains, between Halew and 'Walton.
80 miles west of Eugene. There are also
several sisters married, and the family
has always borne a good reputation, wltr
the exception of Elliot, who has been
known as a bad character.
Sheriff "Withers has been keeping a look
out for Lyons since notification of his
crimes In Josephine County, and has been
of the belief that he would some time

wife has been staying.
Several days ago Withers thought he
had located his man In the vicinity of his
former home. Yesterday morning he left
here early, taking with him Constable
Jack Smith, with the. Intention of arret

place, timing their trip so n to arrive
there after dark.
Satisfying himself that Lyons was In
the house. Withers sent Smith to the back
door, where ho was to prevent the escape
of the quarry, while the Sheriff himself
entered at the front door. Immediately
upon entering the house the two women
who were there, the mother and the wife
of .Lyons, saw what was up and set upon
the Sheriff with womanly pleas for the
son and husband. They seized upon
"Withers as he was going to the next room,
and prevented him from using his arms.
While the Sheriff was in this predicament,
Lyons stepped In with revolver in hand,
shot Withers .and Immediately rushed out

when the bill had been reaa ine tnira
time. President Brownell called Senator
Kuykendall to tho chair and took the floor
In behalf of the measure. Ho said that
he has always been an advocate of giving
the people a chance to be heard upon all
subjects, and favored this bill because It
would destroy bosslsm and give an op
portunity for tho common people to first
name the candidates ana men select irom
among them. "If any man wants to be a
candidate for a public oince, saia lirown
ell. "and If he has the character and
ability that fit him for that office, he
should be willing to go before the people
who know him and ask them for a nomi
nation. How much better for him to get
his nomination that way than to get it
through the manipulation of primaries and
conventions by a few slick politicians.
"I favor the passage of this bill upon the
ground that It Is In accordance with the
broad principle that this is a Government
of the people, by the people and for the

affairs. Back In tho Eastern States I was
once nominated for office by direct vote
of the people. The practice there was
found very satisfactory to the people. If
anything was wrong In the public eervice
the remedy rested In the hands of the
people themselves. I, for one. am will
ing to trust to the wisdom and honesty of
the people." '
Senator Marsters said that the commit
tee on relations had examined the bill
carefully and had concluded that It con
tained many things that would not be
for the best Interests of the people. "If
the Senators will read the bill," he said,
"they will find that It Is carefully worded
In he Interests of the political rounder
and sharp politician. It Is expensive and
Inconvenient. The Senator from Clacka
mas tells us he was once nominated for
office under such a law. So also has he
been nominated for office several times
by county conventions. What fault has
he to find with county conventions?"
Senator Marrters moved that the further
consideration of the bill be Indefinitely
postponed. Senator Miller protested
against thus, summarily disposing of ' the
bill and held that all should be heard on
so Important a measure nnd that all
should go on record. "I am not afraid to
trust the people," ho said, "and I am
proud to stand here advocating the pass
age of this bill because It meets the ap
proval of the people."
Senator Hunt opposed the motion to
postpone and hoped the bill would pass.
He said that the Lockwood primary law
had brought about great reforms In Mult
nomah County and that still greater re
forms would be accomplished by the pass
ing of a direct primary law. Thla bill.

On the ballot Inrt June wero two candi

45,000 people voted for Geer, that ballot
meant that they preferred T. T, Geer

the vote said, and that was what It meant.
You can't have a choice from among Re

The mine was owned by Miles Flnlen,

Indifferent success for some time. F.
Augustus Helnze, the young New Yorker,
who has created such a furore In Butte
mining circles by his unparalleled suc

mine from Flnlen on a verbal bond.
Helnze made a substantial cash pay

extensive scale and In the course of five
or six months discovered rich ore. And

Helnze asserts that ho offered Flnlen
the remainder of the sum due under the
bond, while Finlen asserts that the mine

the property rests upon the verbal agree

the Judiciary committee, which exam

One witness told how Judge Harney and
Mrs. Brackett had visited his saloon dur
ing the street carnival, and that the Judge
was Intoxicated to such an extent that
he kicked the table over In a fit of
anger, breaking several bottles of cham
pagne and some glasses. The Judge, how
ever, produced a large, roll ot bills and
paid for the damage. Mrs. Brackett
picked up the change from a $20 bill and
deposited It beneath her corset.
Other witnesses testified that Harney
had been so drunk while upon the bench
that he staggered and had to steady him
self against the wall In walking down the
Then came another sensitlon. Mrs. Jo
sephine M. Waters, who had accompa
nied the Judge and Mrs. Brackett the
night the table was kicked over, and who
made a sensational affidavit against Har
ney's conduct upon the application for
a rehearing, appeared before tho Judiciary
committee and corroborated the evidence
contained In her affidavit. No sooner had
she left the committee-room than she was

Judge Harney himself took the stand
before the Judiciary committee, and while
admitting the authenticity of the evi

Governmenf Life-Saving Crew
Receive Gold Medals.
From the 31st day of October to the
11th day of November, 1SS3, the crew o
the, United States llfesaving station at
Cleveland, O., saved 27 men and two
women from vessels thrown ashore by
the storms that lashed the waters of
Lake Erie. To each, of the nine men In
the crew the Government gold medal
"for heroic daring" was awarded.
One of the crew was Charles L.
Learned.' While attempting to get a
line to a distressed vessel the lifeboat
capsized, and when the boat rolled over
he was caught beneath it. Finally ha
was washed out by the waves and
drifted ashore, where helping hands re
vived him. The other members of the
life crew made their way to the shore
and hurried for the beach apparatus.
In about one hour and a half they re
turned, and Learned had so far recov
ered that he made his way to the scene
of the wreck arJ took his place with the
crew. All hands were saved, but
Lcarned's career as a llfesaver was
ended. In relating the story he said
that rheumatism quickly pet In as a. re
sult of the cold and exposure. This was
complicated with neuralgia, "I had
such pains in my back that I could
hardly move," he says, "and the least
excitement would cause my heart to
beat violently. I had to be very careful
of my diet, and suffered much dlstresa
after eating'. I could not sleep, my head
ached, I was all run down and. dlscour-
aged. Having been disabled in the

Mr. Learnedv is now a prosperous
farmer at Sandy Creek, N. Y., and the
story of his restoration to activity is
best told aa he tells it. "About four
years ago," he eayst "I saw Dr. Will-
lams' Pink Pills mentioned In a news
paper. I tried them, and firmly believe
that If I had not I should be In my
grave now. The pills began to help me
In less- than a week. Not only did they
benefit my rheumatism, but they built
up my strength, so that I was soon able
to do a bigger day's work than In years
before. The insomnia disappeared and
sleep was sound and refreshing."

First Appearance of Dandruff n Fore,
runner of Future Bnldneaa.
That such is the case has been conclu
sively proven by scientific research. Pro
fessor Unna, the noted European skin
specialist, declares that dandruff Is the
burrowed-up cuticle of the scalp, caused
by parasites destroying the vitality of the
hair bulb. The hair becomes lifeless, and.
In time, falls out. This can be prevented.
Newbro's Herptcldo kills this dandruff
germ, and restores the hair to Its natural
softness and abundance.

people all satisfied that it Is the most
