Possibly One of the Men Who Beat
and Robbed the Jap Section Gang
at Cold Springs Station In Septem
Judge James A. Fee, Dr. Christie,
Jack Grant, Peter Nelson and others
returned Thursday afternoon from a
tour of rounding up horses In the hot
toms of the Columbia river. They re
port that whllo riding over the sage
brush plains, three miles from Cold
Springs station, and about seven
miles from Umatilla .they found the
grewsome remains of a man, and the
fact was reported to Coroner Cole,
who thought there was no occasion
for his visiting the place, and the
bones were burled where found.. The
man had apparently been dead for
several months and nothing remained
but the bleached bones, the coyotes
and birds of prey having picked all
the flesh from them. There was noth
ing to identify the man, and it is a
mystery as to whom he was or how
he met his fate. The only mark
about the head or skull was that ojie
front tooth was filled with gold and
one of the upper jaw teeth was miss
ing. The readers of the East Oregonian
will remember that during September
of last year, while a crew of Japs were
doing some construction work for the
O. R. & N. Company, at Cold Springs
station, they were attacked by three
hobos, who attempted to rob them,
and in the melee sevoral of the Japs
were badly beaten. The hobos then
stnrted away, and about that time
John Clove, of Pendleton, who was
running a warehouse at the station,
came up with a Winchester and be
gan shooting. The would-be bad men
returned the fire and Clove was shot
in the knee. He thought he hit one
of the assailants, but was not sure,
and the supposition is that the bones
found are the remains of one of the
men, who went into the sage brush to
die of his wounds.

This statement was made yester
day by J. B. Wilson of this city, who
returned from a busines strip to Port
land and who looked casually into the
political situation of that state while
in a position to do so. Certain of the
support of eastern Oregon and with
the people of Portland lukewarm,
Mr. Wilson believes that Mr. Furnish
stands well in his race for a nomi
nation that will mean victory if se
cured. ' There is plenty of rain in the Wil
lamette valley," said Mr. Wilson.
"Even Walla Walla Is not in it in
comparison. There is mud and then
more mud in Portland and it is doubt
less worse outside of the cnty, though
I did not go out to see."

An Interesting Fight in the Primaries

generally conceded that the brunt of
the fight will be fought out Saturday,
and that the winner In tho primaries
then will have a comparativelv oasv
campaign for control of the conven

primaries by tho republican county
