Ohl For Shambrook's Log!
It is reported that our doughty sher
iff with two men as a poyso was nomi
nally searching last Tuesday niiht for
the man ho shot a hobo TuesJay. He,
the hobo, found them, the sheriff and
pesse, but having a Winchester with its
muule in front of him, the sheriff and
posse only held a friendly confab with
him for a nbile'and the hobo passed by
on the other aide. There was uo log
near by ior the sheriff to bide behind.
The muzzle of a Winchester is not a
pleasant thing to look into when a man
at tbe buiiaesa end of it looks as If be
meant to work tho machinery ; and B:n
and his pofSi evidently considered dis
cretion the better part of valor and also
doubt'ess thju'ht that he ho from
dargerwilkj asy may live to walk
stotiDod the shooting. Ho then shoul
dered his gun and started across the
Umpqua bridge toward Coos Bay. The
aberiff was notified and started in pur
suit of him but failed to find him that
night. Uo returned to tbo city late in
tho evening, got a bottle of whiskey and
is supposed to have boarded tbe south
bound freight that evening and so has
mide his escape.

treated them so cruelly that Mr. Gard

What the Matter Was.
Portland, Oa., Nov. 10, 1S96
To the Editor: Aly attention has
been called to a recent issue of your
paper containing a communication
signed "X" referring to the
loss and retlccting on Mr. Conkling, the
agent of the company writing tho insur
ance. While I have no particular inter
est in the matter, I was tho adjuster in
charce of tbe loss and am familiar with
all the facts.
Iu justice to Mr. Conkling, I desire to
say he had nothing, whatever, to do
with tho case other than to urge a
prompt adjustment. He in no way in
dicated that any ill feeling existed be
tween Air. Kearney and himseil. it is
quito evident that the article was in
spired by an officious third pen-on but
for nhoso interference tho matter might
have beon amicably settled long ago,
It should be borne in mind that an "hon
est loss" docs not always mean an hon
est claim. This was particularly true
of the caso in question. Newspaper
articles, the obvious motive of which is
coercion, aro not calculated to enhance
the chances of a speedy settlement
