FIVE CONVICTS STILL
(Continued from page 1)
enough to the men to fire at them,
but failed to register a hit.
News Sent Abroad
Word of the escape was broad
cast throughout the , district by
Warden A. M. Dalrymple in a short
time, posses being made up and
dispatched as fast as automobile
owners volunteered their ma-
c tunes, several ol tnese posses
bad been dispatched within half
an hour and by a little after 10
o'clock a majority were searching
the brush for the men. Ward Ir-
ine, private secretary to Governor
Pierce, was on hand a few min
utes after the escape had been re
ported, and had a quantity of
special officers' badges for distri
bution. T. A. Raffety, chief state
traffic officer, was notified and
sent out word for all traffic offi
cers in the district to report at
once. Two had been dispatched
toward Dallas and the Polk coun
ty sheriif was notified to send
them back. Two others had left
about 20 minutes earlier and were
given the word at Woodburn. All
constables, marshals and other po
lice authorities at Turner, Marion,
Jefferson, Woodburn, Aumsvllle,
Stayton, Mehama, Silverton and
Mt. Angel were notified of the es
cape and warned of the danger
ous character of the men who
were sought. Gbief Raffety left
for Turner about 11 o'clock so as
to be on hand and direct his men
from that point.
Officers Join Posse
Two deputies from the sher
iff's office, Bert Smith and Roy
Bremmer, were sent out as were
Officers Warren Edwards and
Louis Olson from the police de
partment, after official sanction
fhad been given by Mayor J. B.
Giesy. Chief of Police Minto was
also on the' scene. Rumors that
the national guard had been called
were unfounded, the rumor aris
ing from the fact that Harry Plant
Custodian of the armory, and Paul
.Hendricks, commander of Com
pany -F, were In charge of 17 men
who left from the armory.
5 Shortly after the fugitives took
to the brush they were sighted on
the J. V. Beach farm, near Shaw.
The men, who were traveling In a
body at that time, were' headed
north, but were turned back by
the posse. Shortly before noon
Tom Cornelius, of the state pris
son, notified Warden Dalrymple
that some of tbe men had been
seen near the old cemetery at
Turner. About 20 minutes later
a report was received that some
men had been seen to cross the
Aumsville road. No reports were
received during the afternoon with
the exception of Johnson's having
given himself up until about 7
o'clock, when a report was receiv
ed at the prison that two of the
convicts had been seen going
Roads are Watched
Knowing of the desperate char
acter of the men, and of the pos
sibility that they would seek a
highway holdup and seize an auto
mobile, descriptions were sent out
by the prison north and south of
Salem and a strict watch kept up
on the main highways.
Five trained men were sent to
Salem late in the afternoon from
the Portland police department
and these immediately took up the
search. During the day a number
of possemen were lined up in or
der to relieve the men who were
then hunting In the woods
for the convicts. It was planned
to relieve these possemen some
this morning, but that the same
searchers would continue on cfuty
through the night.
Three of the escaped men are
dangerous. Ellsworth Kelly, Bert
(Oregon) Jones and Tom Murray.
Kelly was sent to the prison
from Josephine county for a term
of 2 years for aiding prisoners to
escape from the county jail. He
was received here January .20,
1923. He is known as a "repeat
er," having served in the state
prison for two years in addition
to a term in the Iowa state prison,
with jail sentences in Multnomah
and Josephine counties. He was
the leader In attempted break from
the institution last spring.
Brothers AH Bad
Oregon Jones is serving 20 years
for assault aid robbery. He was
committed from Josephine county
and received January 20, 1923.
Jones, with two brothers, engaged
in highway robbery in southern
Oregon. One brother, Dewey, is
now in prison and the other, re
cently captured in Los Angeles, is
now on his way back to Josephine
county. Dewey, prison officials
say, has been a good prisoner and
has never given any trouble.
Tom Murray, a husky and
"hard" youth of 20 years, was re
ceived at the prison from Lane
county on December 31, 1923, to
serve two 10-year sentences for
robbery of the Florence bank. He
featured in an attempted jail de
livery at Eugene. He is also a
parole violator from San Quentin
The other three of the convicts
who escaped were Joe George
Jackson, William Johnson and
Clive M. Weekly. Jackson was
committed from Lane county on
September 15, 1923, and also has
a large number of years waiting
for him to serve. He was com
mitted on a charge of assault and
robbery. He escaped twice be
fore, once while working with a
flume gang, in May, and again in
September, when he and Kelly es
caped by hiding in a truckload of
sawdust that was being hauled to
the state fair grounds.
Johnson is Thief
William Johnson, alias Carl
Carlson, was committed from Jo
sephine county September 26,
1923, to serve five years for lar
ceny. Jackson was a former; in
mate of a Michigan penitentiary.
He was also a member of the
"flume gang" and made his escape
June 18. but was returned to the
prison on January 2, from Yakima,
Weekly wa committed from
Douglas county to serve 15 years
for assault and robbery. He was
received July 14, 1923. At one
time he was an inmate of the
Washington state reformatory at
Posses totaling from 40 to 60
men were searching for the men
The escape yesterday was the
most sensational since that staged
by the notorious Tracy and Mer
rill, Sunday morning, June 9,
1902, when they killed three
guards before going over the east
wall at the prison. Tracy, who
was 24 years old, killed Merrill,
age 28, in a duel, but was later"
shot in Washington. Both men are
burried in an old clump of cpt-
tonwoods just north of the east
wall of the prison. Before com
ing to Oregon and engaging in
the holdup business as highway
men, the pair were members of
the notorious "hole-in-the-wall"
gang in Utah. Tracy was serving
20 years and Merrill 33 years.
Warden Lee, who had charge of
the prison at that time, had re
wards posted for $1000 for each
of the criminals.
