Robbery; Three May Not Live.
Olfympia, Wash., Sept. 8. fl. N. S.)
Passes today are searching , for a. fiend
or maniac who last night or eaily to
day assaulted and brutally beat Mrs.
Hai ry O'Hara. a widow ; her four
daughters and one son and Joe Dobson,
a yqung neighbor, probably fatally in-
junag three of his seven victims.
The -ssauit followed the hold-up at
the (point of a giin of Teresa O'Hara.
20. and young Dobson. 21. as they re
turned to the O'Hara home, eight miles
west of this city, from Olympia. Forc
ing the girl to tie Dobson, the fjeud
then marched the two cf. them into the
house ajid up to the bedrooms where
Mrsj O'Hara and three daughters.
Agnes, 22 ; Frances, 16. and Ea. 12,
and son, Joe. 14, -were in bed.
One by one he forced Teresa to tie
her mother and sisters and finally tha
fiend himself tied Teresa with strips
torni fiom the sheets.

He then demanded money and ob
tained a small amount. The receipts
of the little store which Sirs. O'Hara
aul . her children conducted on the
Olympic highway had been hidtien by
Agnes when she heard the fiend enter
the house. This money he did not find.
He then attacked Teresa. The girl
fought hirn bitterly. He; next turned
hts attention to 12-yeaF-oJd Eva, whom
he assaulted by sheer strength. Krorn
that time, about 11 o'clock, until
nearly 2 this morning the fiend teased
and tortured his helpless victims, and
as a culmination of his brutality just
before leaving the house! struck each
over tl.r head with the butti of his re
volv. . . r i i.ering them unconscious.
It j l.-arned positively that Mrs.

BOX LOST VOTES
In hope of finding somewhere in the

en box which contains the Republican
ballots cast In precmct 197 at the June
primary, another search was ordered
todajr by Circuit Judge Knowles of La
Grande, who is presiding over the Cof
fey -l)Ctrlrwood recount. ,
Interest in the recount was keyed
up to a high pitch all morning in the
court room where the members of the
election board . were being examined
Jimmy Gleason. deputy clerk, said it
might be possible that a box with an
other number had been delivered to
precinct 197. filled with Republican bal
lots, and returned to the clerk without
Jtny one noticing the difference in num
bers. ASSIGNED TO SEARCH
A (deputy sheriff and a deputy clerk
were! assigned at noon, to examine all
the ballot boxes In the registration
loom in hope of finding one that bears
the Beal with the names of the election
board In precinct 197.
Jf this fails to reveal the hiding place
of the lost ballots. Judge Knowles
stated he would order all. the boxes

This report, which has'been held on

was prompted by communications from
the Associated Ge.ieral Contractors of
Portland, in which the character of
work performed by the municipal pav

securing work were, questioned as to
their fairness to the 'private contract

maintained simply for street repair
work. All of these phases were fully
answered in the Barbur report.

also presented tables' analyzing the

Milton and Freewater business men
convened and for the first time in the

of. amalgamation. Two! committees
were appointed, one from leach town,,' to
perfect the plans for inoorportition.
The original town was Milton. Tears
