PouTi.Axi), July 3. Charles Wilson,
the lletnlisii murderer of little Mamie
Walsh at Milwaukee ten days ago, has
escaped irom the clutches of the law.
After leaving tho Multnomah county
jail ou Dts Way to the penitentiary at
raicm, no was aKcu ou the west side
train to Derry, where n private con
veyance was taken for the catiitol. He
was seated U'tweyn two sheriffs, and
while going down a steep embank

niaile a leap for his lli'e. One of the
slierllfs started to follow, 'but caught
his feet in a halter In the bottom of the
buggy nnd wits thrown to the ground.
Wilson escaiM'd to the ttniier iind at

happened at 10 o'clock Saturday night.
A reward of $1000 is offered for his
The ruthless slayer of innocence;
the dcspoilcr of tho -most sacred nnd
beloved possession of humanity; the
(lend Incarnate, sought to be protected
by tho careless action of thoso in au
thority; lie cscaH'd and is at large. It
remains for the citizens of Oregon to
say how long ho shall pollute the at
mosphere wit n n is vile Dreath. An
animal that ottered destruction to our
property In livestock would Ihi hunt-
(I down and exterminated.
How much more should this wretch
who confesses the horrible destruction
of an innocent child, and whose ex
ample Is such a menace to our daugh
ters, lie hunted down and destroyed.
It Is not niivssary for the sherilrs
jiosse to be burdened with his protec
tion any more.
T he lollowlng description was re
ceived In this city last evening by
Salem, July 3. Charles Wilson es-
oo lied from Sheriff Kelley last iiluht
at 10:30 o'clock on his wav from Mc-
Miutiville to Salem. Wilson's de
scription Is us follows: Tall, slim,
largo head, nbotit thirty years old,
slim built, dish faced, rather tlirk
coniplexioned, and wore ti d:trk suit
of clothes, light thin mustache. Ar
rest and wire, clieriif of Multuonuih
ootintv, Oregon. p. Kelly.
By W. L. Warner,
Sherill'of Yamhill County.
UOW IT WAS DONE.
Wilson and his custodian arrived at Mn
Minnville at 7:25 o'clock Saturday cveninii.
Several persons rtcouicd Wilson wMI
tbe party was supping, so the officers se
cured a double-seated conveyunce with a
driver, and started for Salem.
Tbe mnrderer was not secured in anry
but sat on the back seat with Deputy Mor
gan, his bands and loot Doing pertectly tree.
It was 10:30 p. m. when tbe party reached
a point 12 miles from Salem and 15 from
McMinnvillo, in a long canyon. This point
is two miles from Wheatlaud, It was quite
dark, and the party supposed they saw
some shadowy forms iu the road ahead.
Suddenly Wilson, who was sitting direct
ly behind the driver on tbe right-hand side
of tbe wagon, said "look out,'" and placing
his band on his (tbe driver's) shoulder,
leaped to tbe ground. Kelly, wbo was
looking ahead did not notice this, but Mor-
San attempted to follow Wilson. His feet
eoame entangled in a halter and he was
burled to tbe ground. By this time the
fleeing fiend had readied a fence which
lines the road, and, before he oonld be
overhauled, disappeared In the darkness.
Why Morgan did not shoot Wilson down
instead of trying to follow him iu the dark
ness and underbrush, is oneot the myster
ies of this oaae that remains unexplained
He yelled to tbe murderer to stop, but it
looks as if he was afraid of hurting tbe
fiend if he fired. At all events be did not
nse bis "gun."
a FBcrrxKss runsDii,
Tbe alarm of Wilson's escape spread
like wild-fire, and soon several possees
were in pursuit, but they might just is well
have looked for a flea in a sandhill as try to
find a frenzied mnrderer In a mountain of
underbrush on a dark night.

McMtsNviLU, Or., July 4. Sheriff War
ren has just returned from tbe soene of tbe
escape. Wilson was traced to tbe barn of
Young Simpkins on Ibe Polk oonnty hills,
a mile west of tbe place of escape, where it
is supposed he tried to steal a horse. Fail
ing iu this, be returned to tbe ' timber in
tbe canyons. There were but a dozen or
so still hunting for Ibe fugitive, and doubts
are nows expressed as to bia probable cap
ture. Half tbe people believe tbe story of
tbe escape to be a boax in order to deceive
them, but Kelly's dejected look aud bis ex
pression that be would sooner part with his
right leg rather than return to Portland
aud face tbe people shows tbe story to be
true. The pnsouer leaned on them so im
plicitly for protection that a strict watch
was deemed unnecessary.

waited for tho belated delegates. At
8:40 enough arrived to represent n ma
jority of the states and tho roll was
called, but ho mucii confusion ensued
that at 0 o'clock a motion was carried
that each state nimolnt a senrcant-at-
arins to order In its delegation. The
chairman of the committee on creden
tials wits called for, but could not be
found for some time. When finally
rooted out ho reported tho committee
had found no contest, and therefore de
cided the names of thoso on the rolls
were entitled to seats.
Tho committee on permanent organ
isation reported in favor of II. L.
Loiieks, of South Dakota, for j.ierma
nent chairman: J. Haves, of New Jer
sey, permanent secretary, with a list of
assistant secretaries and a vice-chairman
from each state. The report was
adopted, and Chairman Loucks assum
ed tho duty. It was a picturesque
spectiiclo when he, standing ilrm!y
his one leg and sv liiL'Ing his crutch at
arm's length, waived the great asseni-
bliigo to order, ills stieeeti as if pro
gressed was a disagreeable Riirpriso 1 1
perhii a majority of tho convention.
But Its Impetuosity and fire, If not lis
lilts tor and against tne candidate-.
elicited cheers at every few word. Ho
thanked the convention for tho honor
of presiding over "the grandest large-1
convention ever held In the West, or
he believed, anywhere In the civilized
world." In the past, great revolutions
were brought about by the sword and
bullet. Tills, the greatest ot an revolu
tions, was propelled by education and
ballot. Many thought tho republic In
danger, but tne speaker iielloved that
the great moss or woaiin-prouuccrs,
having come to the liigti Btuiuiaru intii r
changing tho system of government by .
ballot hud saved the nation. His hear
ers congratulated themselves they were
i ii , . ri'l...
progressing an uiung tuo line, mo
speaker had not heard of a single saloon
iu Omaha having to double iU capacity
to accommodate the vast crowd present;
he thought that was not truo of some
convention cities for boiiio other con
vention. Ho congratulated the, con
vention on the hurmony which pre
vailed throughout and tho fuct that no
states were Axed up, so that the choice
of tho people would finally determine
the nominee. More than that it was tho
spirit abroad that tho man nominated
must not only stand Bquarely on tho
platform, but must have burned his
bridges behind him. "We are," said
he. "at a critical pcrlotl, and cannot af
ford to take chalices. We want no
doubtful man to lead the movement.
We want a man who has made enemies
for this cause, and will go forward to
make morcenemies in the future. Such
a man I am satislled you will nominate
to-day." A new gavel, which was an
nounced as from timber of the first
homesteod entered in the United Stutes
was presented to the chairman.
Amid some evidences of dissent, Gen
eral William Jacob Armstrong, inspector-general
of consuls under President
Grunt, was given the floor. Armstrong
spoke at some length on tho Issues be
fore the convention, denouncing mil
lionaires He declared It had come to
such a pass that the price of a cabinet
portfolio under the republican admin
istration was $160,000. He said tho on
ly sacred thing in this world was hu
nianlty. Theonly thlnghavlngarlght
In this world la a man. We have met
to affirm the sorrows of this world
should be attended to here, and not to
wait for mysterious Judgments- of a fu
ture state. At this time the speaker's
time expired, and the general senti
ment of the convention being lu favor
of proceeding with business, he retired.
A California delegato arose and de
manded In the name of hln delegation
to know that who has the choice
should be permitted to exercise it with
out being muzzled. Ho proimsed an
amendment striking out the clause pro
viding for the retirement of all except
the two leaders alter the second ballot,

Texas, was talking for Weaver, and so
