con whether the bid of Morris Brothers
corporation, representing 60 per cent of
the unsecured creditors, shall buy the,
assets of the bankrupt corporation, or)
whether they shall be sold to Robertson

some $100,000 lower.
The creditors' reorganisation commit
tee, under the name of Morris Brothers
corporation, a new company owned by
per cent of tne interim creditors of
tli old institution, submitted a bid to
Judge K. ". Bronaugh. trustee for tlfcs
bankrupt. Friday afternoon, offering to
buy the assets of the old Institution for
$1,095,254.49. At the same time Robert
son & Ewing offered a bid of $77S.8utt
These were the net figures, reconciled bj
the trustees so as to represent the same
assets covered by the two bids.
The reorganization committee, whicll
had pooled its claims against the old
bond firm aggregating approximately
$1. Ooil.OOO of face, or $500,000 of ap
praised value, agreed to pay to the re
maining 40 per cent of the unsecured
creditors in cash, the sum of $10,000 in
3(1 days. $200,000 in 60 days and $377,?
96 60 in 90 days. These payments in the
aggregate would liquidate the claims of
Roaeburg, Nov. 5. tThe $1000 reward
allowed by the county court for the.
apprehension and capture of Dr. R- M.
Brumfield. convicted murderer of Den
nis Russell, was Friday apportioned by
the court among; the various claimants.
Of the amount offered. $700 goes to
the Northwest Mounted Police officers
who captured Dr. Brumfield near Cal
gary. Canada. The riak taken by the
Canadian police was considered in mak
ing the award. Inspector Richardson
and Sergeant Waugh are the officers
who will receive the $700.
BB.AKEXAN GETS SIM
J. H. Hogan, Southern Pacific brake-
roan, residing at Roseburg, will receive
$100. Hogan gave the first information
concerning the shipment of the pink
skirt package to . Calgary, Canada, by
Dr. Brumfield on the day the murder
was committed. Hogan saw Dr. Brum- I
field entering the Myrtle Creek express
office and emerge without the' box. He
later saw htm on the highway between
Myrtle Creek and Roseburg, and, fol
lowing the murder, reported these facts
to the Roseburg police.
Tibblea' and Weimer, agents at the
Myrtle Creek express office, also re
ceived. $100, jointly. The expressmen
gave detailed information to the offi
cers concerning the shipment of the
mysterious box, through which the run
away murderer was finally captured.
The Seattle express office, where the
box was held, and later telegraphed for
by Dr. Brunrfiald, received the remain
ing" $100. The box was carefully
guarded there, and it was through the
prompt reporting of the fac that Brum
field had telegraphed for the box that
he was captured.
The court gave much thought to the
dividing of. the award, appropriating
-each Bum with a view to the importance
and risk taken by the claimants.
The state has also offered $1000 re

The Dalles. Nov. 5. Voters of The
Dalles will probably be called in the
near future to pass on a bond issue of
(5000 proposed to cover expenses of
maintaining the automobile camp
grounds last summer. Although the camp
grounds were completed and largely
used by hundreds of tourists who passed
through, all the work at the park had
not been paid for and no revenue was
received from the park because its serv
ices were given free.
At the same election the city will also
txi asked to bond itself to cover costs
of paving several of the hill streets.
At the meeting of the city council it
was reported that the budget for 1922,
as now drawn, calls for about $67,000.
This Is well within the t per cent limita
tion and the figures may be cut further
as a result of the pruning contemplated
by the public committee.
William Andree, until October 1 Port
land manager for Merrill Cox A. Co. of
Chicago, was arrested in Los Angeles
Friday on a telegraphic warrant from
the sheriffs office here, charging him
with forging a $5000 note on the Cappon
& Bertsch Leather company ot Chicago.
Andree was secretly indicted by the
grand jury Thursday. According tb
Sam Pierce, deputy district attorney,
who handled the case before the grand
jury. Andree presented the forged note
to George W. Bates Co., bankers, on
Williams avenue, July 23.
The bank had previously done business
with Andree and had handled notes on
the Chicago leather concern, so it made
no particular investigation to determine
whether this note waa authentic or not.
The forgery of the complete note, frem
the printing to the signature of the
president of the concern, was disco v
ered when Keith M. Wilson succeeded
Andree as branch manager on October 1.
Merrill Cox & Co. are commercial paper
brokers. Their offices here sre in the
United States National Bank building.
Andree was being quietly watched last
summer following the mysterious burn
ing of his sedan car In a secluded spot
tn the Johnson-Schools Ferry road.
Residents nearby reported to the sher
iffs office that a car had toppled off
the road into a gulch and was ablase.
They feared that the occupants of the
car had fallen underneath it. No one waa
underneath it. however. Chief Crimin
ologist Christoffersen suspected that the
car was burned for the Insurance.
