were seen In this city last wek haa led
' the, Seattl detective who are search
ing tor the two to believe that the men
are atlll In Portland.
Covington and Burllaon came to Port
. land two year ago thU fall, and during
, the winter of 1806-8 worked a steam
! fitter on the new Lumber Exchange.
H. J. Bailer, meter lnepector of the
City Water department, had the con
1 tract for the plumbing work on the
l.umher Kxchanra. and the two men
wanted for the murder of Covington'
wife worked for him during the winter
At that time the two were little more
. than boys. Burllaon, who waa wen ed-
ticated, waa a native of England and
f about 18 years old. He waa rather large
! In stature and made rather a good ap
' peranc. Covington, however, waa email
but powerful in build and waa not well
' educated. He waa 20 yeara of age at
' that time. The two came to Portland
' from the south, Burllaon having made
the acquaintance of Covington during
mi atay in wauiornia.
Two yeara ago thia fall the .two men
roomed In a house near First and Madi
son treat a. Later In the winter they
moved to quarters in North Ninth street.
Covington and Burlison left Portland
together with a man named Mitchell, a
painter, to go to Fairbanks. Alaska.
Burlison had been In the far north be
fore,, as he bad previously been inter
ested in the ruah for gold.
Mr. Bailey remambera the two aa be
ing particularly hard working men.
They were regular In their habits; aa
far a he knew, . and he does not recall
that either of them mlsaed a day during
the time that the pair was employed on
