; e v longed Affair
Abe Evans of Dend. who is ii
a death cell at the state peniten
tiary, sentenced to hang Decem
ber 2 for killing James Doran oi'
McMinnvillc, declares that be
does not want his case appealed
to the supreme court and that he
wants to die on the date lixed
for his execution, so that hi?
troubles will be over. Evans has
so expressed himself to prison au
thorities. This means fliat on December
2 three men will be hanged at. the
state prison, the other two being
John L. Rathie and Elvie D. Klr
by, alias James Owens, who were
implicated in the killing of Sher
iff Til Taylor of Pendleton.
Evans case is -different from
that of ths usual prisoner in that
he is unable to read or write.
Most condemned men fisrht for
4 life as long as possible, and- in
tbelr narrow cells arel able to en
joy life to a degree by reading
magazines and newspapers. With
Evans it is different. The only
literature fc.e la able to enjoy Is
the illustrated periodicals that
are given him frequently. Minis
ters have taken an interest in
Evans and Have endeavored tc
touch his heart by picture of re
ligious characters.

comfort, but frankly says he
wants to die on December 2 as
scheduled. He has told prison
authorities that if an appeal were
taken to the supreme court his
imprisonment in the little death
cell would merely be lengthened
into a year with the noose waiting
at the end. .
Evans has made two attempts
to end his life by suicide since he
was received at the state prison.
The crime for which Evans was
sentenced was committed nar
The Dalles in September. He tells
prison officials that he will make
a confession of his life on the
Evans' wife and young daugh
ter visited him recently.

because the high school game to

This means that most of the
forenoon of December 2 will he
tajken up with the grim task. The
hangings are scheduled to begin
at 8:30 o'clock in the morning.
As soon as the first man is pro
nounced dead it will be necessary
to remove the rope, attach a new
rope above the scaffold and sus
pend from it a heavy weight as
a test of strength.
This performance also must be
repeated for the third man. The
same rope 1s never used to hang
more than one man. It is be

elapse between executions.

The effect of the vote is to con

Lloyd George by the house of

wh'ch was delivered today, is de-.-cribed
as uncompromising. In
political circles the view taken is
that the deadlock has been reach

cial to The Statesman If A peti
tion has been circulated among
the business men ot Iallas asking
that they close their places of
business during the coming winter
months at :30 instead of 6 o'clock
as at the present time. During
the war this practice was taken up
by the business men and after a
little "kicking" was found to work
perfectly. As both the sawmills
and the machine shops early
during the winter months the
merchants claim that the average
man has time to attend to his
business before the hour of 6.
