REIGN OF TERROR TO END
Horsethleves Have Long Laid Tribute
on Ranges in Guise of Stockmen
Victims Afraid to Complain,
Fearing Worse Treatment.
LONG CREEK, Or., Nov. 11. (Special.)
Intense excitement prevails in the Long
Creek country tonight over the forma
tion of a Deputy Sheriffs' posse to round
up and capture tho gang of horsethleves
whose depredations have become so wide
spread and bold as to make the situa
tion on the ranges of Northern Grant in
Citizens are Joining the posse in such
numbers as to make ultimate capture of
the marauders almost certain. Only three
specific warrants have been Issued and
the names In these cases are withheld
at the request of posse leaders, who do
not wish to make public the Identity of
the men they are pursuing until the ar
rests are made.
The present uprising In Northern Grant
against the semlorganlzed gang of rust
lers, from whom no man's horses have
been safe. Is the climax of years of pa
tient endurance. Individual arrests have
been made from time to time by the
Sheriffs of Grant and Umatilla Counties,
but the band as a whole has never been
broken up. Occasional recruits from
trusted sources have kept the outlaw
ranks from depletion.
"We'll chase this gang till h 1 freezes
over. If wo don't catch "ea," tersely re
marked, one of the officers .'today, and the
same note of determination is echoed by
every stockman rallying, to the hunt.
It Is the peculiar system of this par
tially .qrganlzed gang which has enabled
the members to operate successfully for
many years. They are not a spectacular
band of horsemen, who sweep into a dis
trict and out again, taking with them 100
or 150 head. - They are residents of North
ern Grant itself or of contiguous territory.
and rarely take more than two or three
animals at the time.
The principal rustlers in the section
pass as . semn-espectaoio stockmen.
They may lo suspected by their neigh
bors, but having reputations of being men
who will .not stand much "fooling." these
suspicions aro hardly ever put in words.
Frequently they are not even whispered
between neighbor and neighbor. A man
does not always know foe from friend in
Bolder and more active operations than
even the harassing thefts of the past
three years have been In progress since
Spring, and this thoroughly earnest man
hunt, to which the patient stockmen
have at last been stirred, promises to
break up or actually wipe out one of the
most annoying bands of bad men that
ever tormented the interior.

"We freely admit as an abstract ques

perhaps, we might expect that it would

objection should be taken by one or the
other of the belligerents to the assem

is still going, on.
"The position of neutrals and the vari

time of war their resources will be
taxed to the utmost in performing
The Navy, he says, Is Increasing so
rapidly that ample work, will be pro
vided for the navy-yards by "repairs
and refits alone." Of the work on- the

reduce the cost of this, the nrst battle

to the most economical basis, "it can
hardly be hoped that the work will be
done as cheaply as when performed in
private shipbuilding yards, whose rates
of pay for nine hours' work, in many
cases, is less. than those being' paid for
eight hours work at the navy-yard In
Attention is called to the urgent
necessity for adequate dockinsr faclll
ties for vessels of the fleet and for the
building of additional piers and sen

BIG POSSE. PURSUES MUEDEESK A
Slaying of West Virginia Sheriff
Leads to a Reign of Terror.
CHARLESTON, W. Va., Nov. IL As
the result of the killing of Constable
Walter Jackson: in Montgomery by Po-
gent capture of the town by the
four brothers of Jackson at the head of
about 40 of their friends, a reign of ter
ror exists there. The Mayor, being help
less, appealed to- Sheriff Daniels yester
day, when Sheriff Daniels and John Rolf
were killed by Ed Jackson. The saloons
were at once closed and Governor White
was asked to send troops.
The Governor replied he would hold the
troops in readiness, but advised form
ing a large posse. If the posse should
meet with serious resistance, troops wilL
be sent to their relief. The Jackson fol
lowers escaped to mountain strongholds,
with which they are familiar.
Ernest and Bob Jackson were arrested
and brought to this city by Deputy JSher
IfC Davis and others. They are In jail
here. A posse, headed by Marshal Harri
son B. Ash, of Thurmond, is scouring the
mountains near Montgomery. Two blood
hounds have arrived from Dayton, O.
They were placed on the trail today. The
officials In Montgomery fear further
trouble, as sentiment against the slayer
of Daniels is very strong.
Reports from, the posse today are that
Ed Jackson was chased into a cave last
night, when it was decided to wait for
daylight for his capture. Although the
place was surrounded, during- the night
Jackson escaped. The posse has been in
creased to 360. Meantime friends, of Jack
son are Te ported to be openly 4rganlslna;
around Montgomery and swearing ven
geance if Jackson Is lynched or killed
without being given a trial.
