The farmer called Ids ser-vi-ents,

From tbe Oregnuian of Nov. 9th we
take tlie following iu regard to the
'lots morning the four persons tried,
convicted and sentenced iu the United
States District Court for robbing the
stage and mails in Antelope Canyon,
last July, namely: Thompkin.-.
Bramlette, White and Hanson, will
be taken to Salem. In accordance
with the sentence, these men will be
confined in the State Penitentiary for
life. To tlie very last tlie prisoners
assert their luuooenee of tlie crime for
which they are condemned. Bram
lette states that he was taken luto the
woods after his arrest and compelled
to dismount by a revolver being plac
ed at his bead. His arms were then
pinioned, a noose placed around bis
neck, and he drawn three times from
tlie earth ami allowed to hang until
nearly strangulated, under threats
from his captors that they would hang
him until he was dead, unless lie con
fessed to the crime ; that after being
nearly choked to death, had confessed to
the robbery of the stage, ami at the
instance of tlie captors, admitted that
Thompkins. Hanson and White, were
also engaged in tbe robbery ; that
when lie (iiramlette) was allowed to
remount his horse and ride a way from
the spot, he emphatically denied every
statement which he had made in his
confessions. He repeated that it wa
extorted from him under threats of
death, hut that there was not one
word of tlie confession true. Hanson
and White both stated tint they were
innocent of tlie crime. They did not
know, either ot 'hem, the charge on
which they were arrested until taken
to the house. The parties making the
arrest stated all along that It was for
stealing norses. Hanson said tnat one
of tlie principal parties who figured
iu the whole case,, had offered him one
hundred dollars if he would escape,
but that he (Hanson) had refused the
offer. Hanson also stated that be on
ly desired to live long enough to see
tlie whole matter cleared; up, and to
recover his name from, tlie odium
which attached to It by reason of his
complicity iu the matter. He prov
ed to meet his fate like a man, and to
labor laud and faithfully while he was
kept confined ; he laid never yet stolen
anything in his lite, and his con
science was perfectly clear on that
score. All the three prisoners had no
fault to And with either the Judge or
jury. They expressed entire satisfac
tion with the manner In which the
case had been managed from the, eom
mencemeet to the ending; they ha J
had as fair and Impartial a trial as
they could reasoiibly expect under the
circumstances. Considering the heavy
sentence, the prisoners appeared calm
and resigned to their hard hopeless lot.
Each expressed a hope that the mys-
S enshrouding the case would at
be unravelled, and the guilty par
ties brought to condign punishment,
for the grave crime which they were
called upon to suffer. ""
