While Feeding Lions the Attack Was
Made and His Injuries May Prove
Fatal Accident Happened In Port
land. Portland, April 29. Fred Damartl
ni, an animal feeder in the Pan-Amer-lean
circus, was attacked by lions
and both his arms and his body were
badly lacerated. The flesh was strip
ped from his right arm in long pieces
and the man was seriously hurt.
The Pan-American show gave two
performances in Portland, yesterday
afternoon and last night to good au
diences. The Parade in Portland.
The Portland Telegram said of the
parade on Monday in Portland:
The point that made itself most ap
parent was the fact that there was a
newness, a refreshing freshness,
about the procession. Judging from
the appearance made on the street
the show has not been long on the
road this season, and everything is
spick and span. Stains of travel are
conspicuous by their absence, the gilt
on the wagons and vans is glittering
in its prestine glory, and The cos
tumes look as if they were being
worn for the first time. Tawdry tin
sel, inseparably linked to the clrcuff
garments, is shown, but all is as the
manufacturer turned them out. There
are no wrinkles nor shop-worn effects
about the costumes, and the usual
masquerade toggery looked snappy.
The knights and ladles, the Roman
chariots, the clowns and other things
going to make up a typical circus
parade, were in evidence. There
were three elephants in the crowd,
one being a whopper. One van was
open and disclosing a couple of lions
with the trainer hypnotizing them
with his whip. The inevitable calli
ope brought up the rear.
This circus gives two performances
in Pendleton tomorrow, "Wednesday
afternoon and evening.
W. 0. Ticer and Thomas Ven
num Are Suspected of the
Crime at Brownsville.
Mike Burke, Railroad Brakem'an, Un
der Arrest, Charged With Killing a
Man in Tacoma by Striking Him
With His Fist in the Neck.
Brownsville, Or., April 29. Evi
dence is strong against W. O. Ticer
and Thomas Vcnnum for robbing the
Bank of Brownsville yesterday.
While Cashier Glass was at luncheon,
the men got in the banking 'room by
a rear window and stole $2000 and
fled. They overlooked a much larger
sum of money. The robbery was dis
covered by the cashier immediately
upon his return and the men wore
soon afterwards arrested, being
strongly suspected. It Is asserted
that the evidence is overwhelming
against them.
Tuberculosis of Bone.
Orville Duncan, the 14 year old
Weston boy, says the Leader, who
has undergone suffering in the paBt
18 months, has entirely recovered
from tuberculosis of the bone in his
right arm. He submitted to four op
erations at Walla Walla, conducted
by Dr. Nelms, and in the last opera
tion the bone was drilled out from
the shoulder to the elbow, a piece of
it being now in his possession. So
persistent was the disease that his
recovery Is a remarkable one, render
ed doubly so by the fact that he Is
now able to use his arm almost as
well as ever. It is likely, however,
that when Orville has a nightmare,
he dreams of the operating table.
A Brave Boy.

gressman from the second district,
came down from Pendleton Sunday
on legal business. In speaking of the
political outlook, Judge Ellis said:
"Umatilla county will give Mr. Fur
nish all the way from BOO to 1800 ma
jority. I do not personally know
much of the feeling in the other coun
ties. While Mr. Chamberlain is stir
ring up a great deal of enthusiasm in
that part of the state, It appears to
me to be in the nature of a personal
tribute, merely because he 1b a 'good

known him for a long time. He is a
good, clean man and commands the
entire respect of the people of East'
era Oregon who know him. Unless
Mr. Chamberlain gets a vote in the
western part of the state that is un
precedented, Mr. Furnish will Be
elected by a safe majority.
