Dora Jennings Finds Cham

Have Charged Patricide.
JACKSONVILLE. Or., Ootr 2L (Staff
Correspondence.) 'My Savior shall be my
Judge." A sweet contralto voice ltoped
this song Into the warm October after
noon's stillness. A child, perhaps' years
old, paused on her homeward Journey,
bent her small head and listened. Again
rose the voice. The song came from the
throat of Mary Theodora Jennings, IS
years old, burled for a month and over
behind the bars of the Jackson County
Jail, under the suspicion not charge,
mind you of having1 -wantonly murdered
her father, X. M. Jennings, at Granite

The Iron hand of this ddepotic rule will
be at an end on Tuesday, for at this time
the legal firm of TV. M. Colvig and George
H Durham, attorneys both well known in
Portland, will, through the process of a
writ of habeas corpus, force the District
Attorney, through his youthful brother,
Clarence Reams, to show under what pre
text they have been holding Dora Jen
nings, who Is held only under the supposi
tion -that she is guilty of having knowl
edge or having committed patricide.
Women Take Her Part.
Dora Jennings, 19 years old, was with
out friends until last week. A number of
women in Grant's Pass then became in
terested in the case. They-bocasne wearied
at the protracted incarceration of the
joung girl. These good women refused,
to believe the circulated story that the
daughter was the victim of an unnatural
father, and solicited the aid of these two
eminent attorneys. Without prospect of
Jes. because Dora Jennings was pennl
', ss, Attorneys Colvig and Durham have
t iken up her case.
Since old man Jennings was shot and
1 is brains and blood scattered on the
walls of the little cabin at Granite Hill,
this slip of a girl has been .denied the
right that would have been accorded the
meanest hobo ever accused of a crime
that of legal advice. The first friendly
face she had seen since she was burled
in the Jacksonville jail was that of Attor
At first even his visit to the prisoner
was denied by the youthful Assistant-District
Attorney. Colvlgs first visit was
purely philanthropic, for he had yet to bo
appointed by the court as attorney for
Attorneys Would Not Be Denied.
Attorneys Colvig and Durham have
grown old in tho law, both have been
District Attorneys and both know the
law, and they demanded the right to see
this girl. Clarence Reames had even de-
r'ed.tlie right of Mrs. Moody and a cousin
of Dora Jennings the privilege of seeing
v.cr. They had called, coming all the way
from Granite Hill, to furnish the prisoner
with a change of meager underwear and
had been told by the Deputy Sheriff, who
v. as acting under tho Instructions of the
yr.ung Assistant District Attorney that
Dora could not be seen.
It so happened that Judge H. K. Hanna
was holding court at that time. Attorney
Durham, when he was confronted by tho
Czar-like prder of young Reames, went
upstairs into the courtroom, broke into
iv case at bar and stated to the court
that ho and his legal partner. Attorney
v'olvlg, Mrs. Moody and her cousin and
two children wished to see Dora Jen
nings, and had been refused admission
to the Jail on an order issued by young
jtonmes. Judge Hanna at once gave per
mission to the attorneys and. relatives of
tl:e prisoner to see Dora.
The murder of old man Jennings is
Er.rouo.ea witn mystery. uora and a
younger sister occupied beds in the same
cabin with the father. A young brother
slept upstairs. Jasper Jennings, the other
son, -who has been locked up in tho coun
ty jail at jGrant's Pass, slept in a cabin
romc distance away. All swear that they
did not hear the shot that killed their
"Placed In Separate Jails.
It was a mallcarrler who brought the
news of the crime to Grant's Pass, and
upon tho investigation of the District At
torney the- arrest of Dora Jennings and
her brother Jasper followed. Jasper was
locKea up in tho Josephine Countr -JalL
Dora, under the reason given that the
Josephine County Jail was jio place for a
gin, was taken to the county jail here.
The truth of the matter is that brother
and sister were separated so-that they
might be subjected to the sweating pro
cess and the 3d degree administered
without giving the prisoners a chance to
compare "notes. It is a way that District
Attorneys have. Thus separated, it was
easy first to subject one prisoner to the
sweating process and then run to the
other with stories, true or fancied, of
what the other had said, and by doing
mis, ana pernaps by saying. "Your broth
or is weakening, you had better tell -what
you Jfcnow," thereby get one or the other
todlyulge what tfey knew of the crime
Tiils process of sweating has forced t
statement from Jasper Jennings. Ho has
alleged to have made something that re
sembles a confession, and he has said to
havo laid the crime upon the shoulders of
Jus sister. In what class would crlmlnolo
gists place Jasper Jennings?
Jasper Is Not a Boy.
Through intent, or perhaps a mistake
tho published stories of this crime have
spoken of Jasper Jennings as a boy, giv
ing -the impression that he was yet to
enter his teens. He is not a boy, he is n
full-grown man, 27 years old, with the
ordinary intelligence of perhaps a half
educated individual. He is engaged to be
married, and his fiance is Blanche Rob
erts. It is she who has corroborated Jas
per Jennings in this flimsy confession.
Through Mrs. Moody it has been learned
that D6ra had no use for Miss Roberts.
In fact, Mrs. Moody says that Dora ob
jected to tho engagement between Miss
Roberts and her brother, and that she
would be the last person on earth to make
a confidant of Miss Roberts. Therefore
the story that she has told that Dora told
her that she had killed her father and
had hidden the rifle in tho bushes, is not
believed, let us say to the credit of the
District Attorney's office, by them.
This story of Miss Roberts' smacks of a
plot. The .first story given out, and as a
reason for the. killing of her father by
Dora, was that she was a victim pf an un
natural and vicious father. Now. there is
another motive for the crime. This story
has it that Jasper Jennings, his sister
Dora and Miss Roberts wanted to attend
the Exposition. It is said that they knew
that their father had several hundred
cellars saved up, and had plotted to get
this money and to spend it in Portland.
Determined to Free Her Sweetheart.
One thing seems true, that Miss Rob
erts, whether by a prearranged agree
ment with Jasper Jennings, or because of'
her love, is determined to get her sweet
heart free. If this is true, then Jasper
Jennings Is doing a cowardly and dastard
ly thing. That the District Attorney's
office Tiaa no direct evidence that Dora
committed the crime is in a- measure borne 1
out by a statement made by him when
he returned from the scene of the crime.
On his return, the District Attorney told
ot having taken the measure of foot
prints that led from the cabin of Jasper
Jennings to that of h!s father, and that
they fitted tho boots worn by Jasper. If
tills is so, why have they kept Dora In
jail all thlstime? Certainly there can
be no mistake between the big logger's
buots worn by a full-grown man and the
rmalj Imprint that would be made by a
girl only 35 years old.
Undoubtedly tho District Attorney be
lieved that Dora had some knowledge of
the crime. Perhaps she has, but she is
not telling what sho knoVs to young
Reams, notwithstanding the fact that she
has been frequently taken to his office,
two blocks away from tho JalL
Dora Is an extraordinary girl. When
sho was told that her brother had con
fessed, and said she had killed her father,
she maintained her stolid silence. Her
only remark is said to have been that she
dld'not know he had anything to confess.

The state In September Issued J330.0CO

fact that tho running expenses of the
state average about $90,000, while the re-
receipts In September and October, which
are light months, average about $40,000.
In addition to the general running ex

paid this month were Issued last month

so far have been $58,779.62, representing

These men have not an extensive deposit
of this ore, but from such development
of their property as has been made' the
owners are confident they have a valuable
mine and that further tunneling will de
velop a more extensive deposit. Large
deposits of copper ore have been discov

miles of Glendale, but so far none have
been found that warrant extensive devel

will yet be discovered.
The location of the deposit from -which
the above ore comes Is about IS miles east
