FIGHT FOR HIS LIFE
Trial of Alleged Murderer to
LAWYERS ARE LINED UP
Imposing Array of Counsel for
- Prosecution ' and Defense En
gaged for Legal Battle.
With an Imposing array of law
yers lined up for the defense and
prosecution, the trial of Russell
Hecker, alleged murderer of Frank
Bowker, which is scheduled to open
Tuesdav at Oregon City, promises
to be one of the most bitterly con
tested legal battles in the criminal
history of the state.
The prosecution will be led by
District Attorney Stipp of Clack
amas county. Associated with him
will be District Attorney Myers,
Deputy District Attorneys Ham
mersley and Mowry of Multnomah
county and Frank Lonergan, local
lawyer, who will appear as special
Hecker will be represented by
Gale S. Hill, former district attorney
of Linn, county; Gilbert S. Hedges,
former Clackamas county district
attorney, and Thomas G. Ryan, a
Evidence la Circumstantial.
The evidence against Hecker is
purely circumstantial Tho actual
place of killing is in doubt The ele
ment of self-defense also enters the
case. With these circumstances, it
is expected that Hecker, through his
attorneys, will put up a desperate
battle for his life.
Hecker and Bowker, engaged in a
bootlegging deal, left Portland on
the night of April 17. The following
day, at noon, Hecker was surren
dered to the police by his attorney,
Mr. Ryan. Then followed the find
ing of a blood-smeared automobile
which the prisoner had used the

pointed out the spot where, he de
clared, he had thrown Bowker's- dead
body into the river. Several days
later the body of the dead. man.
bundled into a hop sack, was found
in the river.
The state contends that Bowker
was killed in a lonely spot near the
Clackamas rifle range. Blood stains
on the roadway and the testimony
of residents who declare they heard
the sound of a machine at the spot
at the supposed time of the killing
are to be used as evidence to sup
port the state's contention.
Case Interesting; One.
The Hecker case Is interesting
from the legal angle. The prisoner
was given a preliminary hearing in
municipal court and bound over to
the Multnomah county grand jury.
That body heard the evidence of
some 30 witnesses, and while the
jurors were still deliberating the
case was transferred to Clackamas
county. The witnesses were taken
before the grand Jury at Oregon City
and an indictment, charging first
degree murder was returned against
