Governor Geer Announced Friday
That Ho Would Release the Brave
Convict Unless Material Objection
Salem, June 14. Frank S. Ingram,
the convict 'who was shot by escape
Merrill, whilo ho was endeavoring to
save tho life of Guard Ferrill, who
was killed by the desperadoes when
they made their break for liberty, is
not dead, as has been erroneously re
ported all over the country, but Is
alive, and although losing his leg as
a result of the attempt at prevention
of the murder of the guard, will re
cover. As soon as he has sufficiently re
covered to leave the institution, he
will be able to walk out a free man,
as Governor Geer has now practically
decided to issue a pardon for Ingram
This intention was announced yes
terday, when the governor said re
garding the matter:
"I am disposed to pardon Ingram,
whose splendid action I believe de
serves recognition, and unless valid
objections should be raised and pre
sented against such clemency, I think
I shall take the matter up favorably
in a week or so. There is no imme
diate hurry, as Ingram is not in con
dition to be moved yet, and besides,
I want to give time for all persons to
be hard In the matter."
Incram was sent up from Linn
county 10 years ago, having been
found guilty and received a life sen
tence for killing his own brother. A
sister of Ingram, who has been work
ing near Independence, Or., declares
most positively that Ingram commit
ted his crime in self-defense.
COUNTY SEAT FIGHT.
Between the People of Vale and On-
tario In Malheur".
E. H. Test, the well known Ontar
io banker and democratic politician,
elected to the lower house of the
state legislature U the recent elec
tion, being asked in reference to the
Malheur county seat fight, which has
been a source of much bitter conten
tion in his county for several years
past, said: "You may depend upon it
that Ontario's claim to the county
seat will be pressed again at the
next session of the legislature. In
fact, the county seat question was
the main issue at the late election.
I was put up as the candidate of On
tario against a Vale man who rep
resented the claims of Vale. The
fact that I won out is significant. It
means that a majority of the voters
favor Ontario as the county seat.
The vote upon this question was de
cisive, and there are no reasons why
the wishes of the majority of the le
gal voters of the county should not
be gratified. The interests of On
tarlo will be taken up early in the
season and pressed until the will of
Malheur county In the matter of pre
ference for the county seat is given
recognition. We ask for nothing un
reasonable. All we want is justice,
and I believe that the legislative as

the Charles Hill who died in, a hos

that he had not a jrlend or relatlvo

if the resemblance tallies, some mem

Miss Hill lives with her blind

AT LEAST SO SAYS STATE
The Battle Has Been Fought and Won
in the Western Part of the State,
and it Is Time for Eastern Wash
ington to Take a Stand.
Spokane, June 14. "Tho Washing
ton republican state convention, to
be held next September, will almost
without a doubt pledge itself to the
support of both the establishment of
a railway commission and to the pas
sage of an anL-pass law."
Such was the sentiment expressed
by Governor McBrido hero today.
Continuing, he said:
'The battle against the railway lob-
by has been fought and won on the
west side of the state and there is
no doubt a majority of tho delegates
from that district will be Instructed
to vote and use their influence in the
direction indicated and it now re
mains for Eastern Washington to
take Its stand on this question."

Salt Lake, June 14. After July 1

More Boers Quit.

This brings the total above 14.000.
Up to the hour of going tc press no word has been received from the

rill. It now seems probable that the farclal chase has been given up and
the men gotten clear away.
HOPE FOR MAYBRICK.
Said the Famous Murderess Will Be
London, June- 14. It is reported
that Baroness Roques, the mother of
Mrs. Florence Maybrlck, found guilty
of poisoning her husband and sen
tenced to prison for life, has receiv
ed semi-official assurances that her
daughter will bo pardoned during the
coronation .this month as, a part of
the general amnesty to.lJe extended
to criminals of good record. At the
United State embassy nothing is
known, abo'st1 the matter, and Ambas
sador. Crojate declines to. either deny
Or confirm the rumoff' Persons con
versa'b.t"''wJ'th the late' attempts to so
,cjire the famous, prisoner's liberty
'ncBsrt thnt it at last she is to be giv
en hers liberty, this maye bo regarded
as,aue to ine muuenpe 01 iviug cu
Wsrd and may bo Interpreted as a
'token of good will. Ever since the
present home secretary came into of
fice two years ago; efforts to secure
the release of .Mrs. Maybrlck have
been particularly1 active and have
continued up.td the present time.
The personal , efforts of Ambassador
Choate, jttthoUgh made informally,
have been unceasing.
It is understood that tho late Pres
dent McKinley, through Secretary
Hay and Ambassador Choate, asked
the English government for a pardon
and release of Mrs. Maybrlck, with
out question of her guilt or Inno
cence as an acti ,of international
cumuy. Should tho famous prison
er be included in tho general amnes
ty to be declared two or three weeks
hence tho .fact would occasion no
surprise among those best Informed
as to the status of the case.
