Portland, June 13. A message
from Needy, the nearest station to
where the escaped convicts were sup
posed to be surrounded, says the
posse has absolutely no traco of the
men and it is feared that they have
escaped Into the mountains.
The militia and posse are guarding
all the roads and trails. A report has
been received that a man answering
Trapv's descrlDtlon was seen at a
country store near Needy at 8 o'clock
this morning, while another report
says that both the escapes wore seen
thin moraine. coiner toward Barlow
Pass. Sheriff Durbin discredits these
reports, however, and has gone to the
timber, w!H!urd Carson, the blood
hounds and" a parr "of the posse ana
will search the thickets where mo
men are sunnosed to be hiding.
The Impression is fast gaming
cTonnd here that the two men for
whom the posse have been searching
for the past few days are not Tracy
and Merrill', but a couple of hobos,
who have been using the prestige of
the desperados to work rarm nouses
for their meals. It Is furtner Denev
ed" that the escaped convicts have
gotten clear away and that If they are
ever caught It will be by someone
outside the present list of pursuers.
A man who has arrived in Portland
from the neighborhood of where the
chase is on, says that there is very
little doubt that the convicts have
gotten out of the country and the
sheriff and hlB men are merely en
gaged in trailing up wild gooso
storjes which are started by people

liollovos that the reports that Tracy

supposed them to bo at all. When tho
stories are nil simmered down it
amounts to about this: Tho mon who
are believed to bo tho convicts aro
probably not Tracy or Merrill at all,
but merely a coupio oi tramps.

is tho talk In the section whoro I
have been. The dogs wore on the
trail for two hours. It wns Bupposed
that the men were only 30 yards in
the woods. It seems ridiculous.
"Then, again, If Tracy and Morrill
