Brought Down With AVounds
in Shoulder and Abdomen.
NEWBERG, Or., Sept. 12. (Spe
cial.) City Officers Wesley . Boyes,
Claude Ferguson and Henry Mgrria
shot and seriously wounded Lee La
Du in a gun fight here while trying
to arrest him for bootlegging at
about midnight last night. The of
ficers had been 'Informed that LaDu,
who runs a transfer business here,
was going out toward Portland to
get a load of liquor with a horse and
buggy, and at about 8 o'clock they
went out over the highway to Rex
and waited there until about 11
At this time Fred Patterson,
deputy sheriff and county highway
patrol officer, came along, having
been in Portland, and the officers
stopped him and Morris went back
over the highway with him, but
could see nothing of La Du and con
cluded that he must have taken the
road over the mountain and thus
eluded them. All of them returned
Arriving here they started an in
vestigation and concluded that LaDu
had returned, put up his horse and
gone home. At 12:15 City Marshal
Ferguson and Night Marshal Boyes
walked down the street, Ferguson
going home and Boyes turning out
the lights on the highway bridge.
Boyes then walked back up through
the main part of town, and when
near the city hall he heard LaDu's
horses on the pavement and went
into the alley and walked east to ;
meet him. They met in the rear of I
the Baker theater and Boyes or
dered LaDu to stop.
LaDu said: "Wesley, I didn't
think you would do that."
Boyes replied: "You're violating
, the law and I have to arrest you.
JLa. Du then drew his revolver, and
saying, "I won't be taken alive,"
shot twices at Boyes, the powder
from one shot burning Boyes' face.
Boyes hit LaDu on the head with
his pistol, but the horse lunged and
the jerk knocked the pistol out of
Boyes hand into the buggy, the
horse continuing to move away.
LaDu stood up and tried to shoot
again at Boyes, but the horse kept
lunging and prevented him from t
LaDu la Shot Twice.
In the meantime both Ferguson
and Morris, who had gone home,
heard the shots and proceeded to
get up. Boyes ran to the telephpne
office and called Ferguson and told
him to bring him a revolver. The
officers congregated near LaDu's
transfer barn. They saw LaDu turn
the lights on and off and he then
came out the rear door and into the
alley and into School street, turning
north in the direction of his home.
The officers were on Hancock
street, and as LaDu started to cross
this street the officers ordered him
to throw up his hands. LaDu had
buckled on a belt partly filled with
cartridges and had his hand on a
pistol on either hip. As he Jarought
up his hands he had a weapon in
each and fired first at Ferguson
and then twice at Boyes.
Both officers fired over his head,
ordering him to drop his weapons
and give himself up, but he kept fir
ing at them. Finally they shot him,
once in the right shoulder and once
in the abdomen. He dropped to the
pavement, -but continued firing as
long as he had strength to hold a

NOT PROOF, OF FAILURE.
Easterners Who Came in Caravan
of Automobiles Generally
Prosperous on Farms.
EOISE, Idaho, Sept. 12. (Spe
cial.) The charge that because
two settlers on the Roseworth tract
brought suit against the owners of
that tract, E. T. Meredith and others,
to recover the money they invested
in lands therein, the Scott modern
automobile caravan that settled on
the tract a year ago is a failure,
is denied by the residents of Buhl
and by many of the substantial
settlers on the land.
It was a year ago this month
that the caravan reached southern
Idaho after having crossed the con
tinent from Brooklyn, following a
journey of more than two months.
Most of the settlers were bookkeep
ers, bank clerks or employed in
some other vocation than farming.
,They wanted to get away from the
congested centers of the east and
into the open. Inducements were
offered to them to come to Idaho
The settlers who brought suit
against the Idaho Farms Develop
ment company and Meredith, one
of its officers, are Walter C. Mc
Pherson and Herbert S. Roth. They
claim 5810.08 and $6828.85, respect
ively, as the amounts they expended
in the lands, which they asked be
returned to them, as they were In
duced to settle on the Roseworth
tract on misrepresentations made
by the company.
It is charged that they left their
crops growing In the fields and that
they are going to waste. . .

T. J. O'Connor, managing secretary,
and suggestions by John E. Murray,
attorney, as to a forward programme

importance. They .were membership;
co-operation on the part of all the
people of the community to develop
the county and state, which in turn
would develop the city; publicity

if carried on in a proper way, help
