Fred Shepherd Murdered Em
ploye and Assaulted Wife.
Judge Frazer, Who Tried Crook
County Case, Is Amazed That
Hrute Was Not Lynched
by Ranchers.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 27. (Special.)
Fred A. Shepherd will almost certainly
hang next Friday noon for the murder
of Uen Zell In Crook County. Judge
A. L. Frazer. who tried the case, lias
written a letter to Governor Chamber
liiin, opposing In the strongest lan
guage any commutation of sentence.
In hla letter the Judge expresses his
amazement that the men who took
Klicphurd Into custody did not lynch
iiim nt once. Ho discusses the case at
onsWer ible length, showing that Zell
and hi wife were unusually affection
ate ai J -were always together at home,
on tl o range or on long drives. Mrs.
'A'V detested Shepherd. Yet after the
rder and outrage Shepherd tried to
ear himself by making a pretended
confession In which he said that Mrs.
V.tW planned the murder and that lie
and she had maintained unduly inti
mate relations for months before. This,
.Imige Frasser says, was so manifestly
f;ilsn that tho defense did riot dare to
attempt to make use of it. In the
course of his letter. Judge Frazer says:
The evidence showed the murder to be one
or the moet atrocious and fiendish acts of
vhlv-h I have ever heard. It was committed
:n onlcr that Phepherd, the murderer, might
ravinh Mrs. ZMI, tho wife of the murdered
in;in. As far as I know, the crime was very
findlar to thone committed at times by ne
Krcts In the South, which have given rise to
tho lnuiiy lynching in that section, and whilp
Ib'tenlnff to the evidence of the manner in
ttlikh Zell was killed, and his wife, a rather
! Ik-ate and refined little woman, outraged
then after. I was amazed that the men who
were called to the ecene an hour or so after
ward, could take Shepherd Into custody and
calmly wait tor the arrival of the Sheriff.
When tnat little woman came back after
liavlns Bane tor help,' with hair streaming,
dressed In nothing but a loose wrapper, having
rl'Men away bare-footed and bare-legged, and
failing from her horse screamed with grief
nn.l tenor: "There Is the man! That Is the
man who killed my Ben!" It was fortunate
lor Shepherd that a very quiet, cool-headed
man was in control of the situation.
.fudge Frazer concludes as follows:
The ease being such an atrocious one. and
Flii-pherd 'having shown such a fiendish dispo
Fitlnn, having not only murdered Zell and
outraged hie wife, but having shown a desire
ufterwards to forever blacken her character.
In my mind he Is not entitled to pity. He Is
clearly not insane, at least in a legal sense,
although he Is somewhat stupid.
I'roper Treatment for Any Man Who
Strikes a Woman.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 27. (Special.) So
far Is Governor Chamberluln from fa
voring a repeal of the whipping-post
law that he advocates an amendment,
rather, which will permit a Judge to
send to the whipping-post any man
who strikes a woman, whether that
woman be his wife or not. He does
not advocate a change which will make
whipping the only penalty, but would
leave tiio punishment to the discretion
of t lie Judge who hears the testimony,
so that a man may be whipped when
the circumstances of his offense are
such as justify that punishment.
To the proposal that wifebeaters be
put at work on the rockplle and that
the county pay the defendant's family
$1 a day while he is so engaged, Gov
ernor Chamberlain has no great objec
tion, though he Is of tho opinion that
some men out of work would slap their
wives in order to be sent to jail where
they would get their own board and
their families would get the dollar a
day. The payment of the dollar to the
family would be proper, he thinks, but
tho plan of working men on the rock
pile should not supersede the whipping
post as a means of punishment.
"I cannot argue with those who Bay
that the establishment of the whipping
post is a return to barbarism," declared
Governor Chamberlain, tn a most em
phatic manner. "What can be more
barbarous than for a husband to knock
his wife down and kick her- around
the floor as I have heard many of them
do? The punishment for such a crime
can scarcely be too severe. There are
some human brutes who fear no other
penalty, but upon whom the thought
fit the whipping-post will exert a re
straining influence. The whipping-post
is a proper place to punish any man
who strikes a woman, whether she be
hl3 wifo or not."

Catholics Will Enlarge Parochial
School at Oregon City.
OREGON CITV. Or., Nov. 27. (Special.)
In September. 1907, 9t. John's parochial
and high school, of this city, will bear
the name of Dr. John McLoughlin's Insti
tute, in honor of the founder of Oregon
t-ity. as tnere was no school or public in
stitution of any kind In Oregon City under
that name. It has always been in the
mind of the pastor of St. John's Catholic
Church, of this city. Rev. Father A. Hille-
brand. that It was about time Dr. Mc-
Txmghlin wae so honored. Archbishop
t.'hnstle on nis visit Sunday very heart
ily indorsed the Idea, and in his sermon
Sunday morning, when a class of 80 mem
bers was confirmed, delegated the pastor
of the Oregon City church to take the
proper steps to effect the change in the
liamo of the school.
Father Hillebrand has always favored
thorough education, and for the last 18
years has labored to secure for Oregon
City such an institution, and In his efforts
has been ably and unselfishly assisted by
the efficient corps of teachers In the
school. The school at the present time
has the best of reputation, but experi
ences a lack of room in which to carry on
its work. A larger building is required
for the accommodation of the pupils, and
this will be built during the ensuing year.
The building will be of large dimensions,
accommodating 250 to 300 pupils.
Archbishop Christie and Rev. Father
Hillebrand and the members of the Ore
gon City congregation are very enthusi
astic over the undertaking, and no doubt
the people of Oregon City as well as the
people of the entire state will financially
aid in rearing an edifice that will not only
honor the man whose name It bears, but
also the city, as an institution of higher
education which will be accessible to pu
pils without distinction of creed. Through
this agency a night school will be estab
lished by which the young men will be
given an opportunity to complete their
elementary education.
With the well-known zeal which has
distinguished the archbishop for advanc
ing education, he has encouraged the ias
tor of the Oregon City congregation by
pledging a very substantial subscription to
the new school building. An architect
will be engaged to prepare plans for the
building, with all the most modern Im
provements as to schoolrooms and gen
eral arrangements for a hall and gymna
sium, and it is hoped that on the 50th
anniversary of the death of Dr. John Mc
laughlin, which occurs In September, 1907.
this structure will be dedicated and
opened for te purposes for which it is

f SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 27. The at
tempted entangling of Mrs. Syphers, a

a tragic attitude, and with upraised hand
calling upon God to bear testimony to
her varaclty; the clearing of the court
room by order of the Judge, because of
a demonstration by the audience, and the
dramatic demand of the attorney for tho
defense that this order be revoked and
the defendant given a public trial, and
Judge Huneke making an order prohibit
ing Artist Morris from making a sketch
of a woman witness because she was un

ovef to the Circuit Court in the sum of
(2000, bonds for which were furnished
by T. &L Hicks and J. K. Jow.
Before opening court in Armory
Hall this morning, the testimony of
W. W. Slaughter, the wounded man,
was taken in his bedroom, but on ac
count of his weakened condition the
attorneys could not proceed at length.
The important points in his evidence
were that he was plowing near home
when he heard a shot; thought it was
someone hunting . and shooting too
close; raised up to look around, when
a second shot struck him in the shoul
der. '
Slaughter ran to his house, seized his
shotgun there and went into the road

saulter of Women.
in front. He secured his gun, which
was loaded, because he feared the party
shooting would follow up to finish his
work. He saw nobody at the time of
the shooting, the shots having come
from the west. He gave his gun to
his neighbor, Pender, who answered his
cries and met him in the road.
Slaughter thought the third shot
struck him in the eye as he was run
ning. He at once thought it was Rem
ington. The shotgijn had not been
used by him that he could remember,
since October 9, when a nephew and
niece were visiting him for a week,
and he was shooting gray-digger squir
rels, the nephew having his new gun
and out hunting much ' of the time.
Slaughter knew that Remington did
not like htm; that Remington ill-treated
him and ran after his wife.
Slaughter went on to say that he
never wrote a letter to Remington in
his life, and never tried to burn Rem
ington's house. He had nothing par
ticular against Remington, although
the latter had something to do with
his family troubles. Two years ago lie
had a little trouble with his wife, but
only a few words. He accused Charley
Coldren of being intimate with Mrs.
Slaughter. The latter sued for and
obtained a divorce. Slaughter not ap
pearing. He was married October 15,
1901, and separated from hia wife April
10, last.
' Last vMarch Slaughter returned from
a visit In California and lived with his
wife for a few days. Coldren had him
arrested for threatening his life. He
would have gotten along pretty well
with his wife . If . there had been no
outside' interference. . Hjs contention
with Remington was when he returned
from California. Upon his return Col
dren and Mrs. Slaughter advised him to
leave the country. Remington said
nothing, but Slaughter was satisfied
that he was in the plot.
The defense opened with Constable
Beach on the stand. The witness con
sidered Slaughter had an irritable na
ture, and made threats, but did not
threaten defendant in his hearing ex
cept by his manner' Slaughter proposed
to get revenge. He once arrested
Slaughter for threatening to kill Col
dren, and has had Slaughter under sur
veillance for the past two or three
months; never found a weapon on him.
Portland detectives hold threatening
letters sent to Mrs. Slaughter, one
signed by Slaughter, others by ficti
tious names.
Other evidence was that Slaughter
was very jealous and got furious when
seeing his wife in ordinary conversa
tion with other men. He made threats
against "the whole bunch," but none
particularly against Remington. The
footpath past Slaughter's house was
commonly used by pedestrians, and
Remington had frequently gone that
way to visit George Klllen's. invari
ably carrying his gun, as he was a
great hunter. Mrs. Slaughter was at
Klllen's recently, and Remington paid
her some attention. Remington was
being watched by Slaughter, who fol
lowed him once to Portland.
A picket containing a charge of shot
was produced in evidence, showing the
shot had been fired by some one near
Slaughter's house. Witnesses differed
as to when the shot entered the picket
One thought some looked fresh, while
another was positive they were a month

Miller has lived alone In a scow at
Aldrlch Point for a number of years.
He received a pension of $12.50 pur
month, and In addition earned some
money by selling vegetables to fisher
men. After eating his breakfast about
7 o'clock oh last Friday morning, he
started to go outside, but as he opened
the door a man thrust a revolver In
his face and commanded him to "throw
up his hands."
Miller hesitated and another man
slipped behind him and struck him In
the back of the head with a leather
cover "billy," that was later found in
tho stove, partially burned. Miller
was knocked senseless, and when he
came to he was lying on the bed,
bound hand and foot, so that he was
unable to move. In the meantime the
