EX-CONVICT SHOT BY OF
FICER IN THE CITY JAIL.
He Was a Desperate Man and Had
Committed Many Crimes As
saulted the Officer.
La Grando,"" July 8. William Hill,
an ox-convict, was shot and killed
here Sunday morning by Officer
Frank Childers on account of an as
sault committed by him on the officer
as the latter was about o put the
handcuffs on him at the JalL Hill
was beingheld on a obarge.ot steal
ing a buggy. He was known to be a
desperate man, but recent develop
ments show that he was even 'a
greater criminal than was at first
supposed. He had previously serv
ed two terms In the sta'te -penitentiary,
ono for grand larceny and an
other for an assaulCy'with intent to
kill the dffler who made the arrest
at tho time. The two terms were
served out consecutively.
Officers returned yesterday from a
search of the cabin occupied by the
deceased in the mountains about five
miles from this place, where they
found other evidences of the deceas
ed criminal's crimes. Stored away in
his cabin were numerous articles
that have been missed from time to
time by people living in this city
and in the valley generally. It ap
pears that he had been doing a
wholesale stealing, though the arti
cles taken were not of high value In
Officer Childers,, who was compell
ed to kill Hill, had served as mar
shal hero for four years and has
many friends. He was always faith
ful and careful and is not blamed by
anyone for the unfortunate affair.
Dr. G. W. BiggerB has returned
from Imbler, where he iad been call

MURDERED DAVE MERRILL ?
"Is Convict David Merrill dead or

Although Tracy has repeatedly as
serted that he murdered hia fellow
convict by shooting him in the back,
satisfactory evidence of the deed
having been committed, or the pro
duction of the body, is not yet forth
coming. At the same time Merrill
has not been located s.lnce the day
on which Tracy declares that he
There are many who have Implicit
ly believed the story of the killing
of Merrill, from the very first, while
others wJio have been skeptical are
beginning, to think the story is true,
as Merrill fails to make his appear
ance. , .
To a dozen people Tracy has told
his tale of the killing of his fellow
escape and It has varied only in the
amount of detail In which ho haB
given It He is said to have even
told the location of the body to Frank
Scott, ono of the crew of the launch
in which he made his way up the
Scott, however, will 'not divulge the
location of the corpse, as he has been
told by the officers that he cannot
claim the reward. This action has
aroused considerable comment, as it
is said that if he .knows where tho
body Is he should produce It or tell
where it is and the suggestion has
been made that radical .methods bo
UBed to force him to do so.
Ono theory Is that Merrill has
found a place of safety,, perhaps In
Seattle, and that he may havo gone
on ahead of Tracy to secure money
and other Incidentals, and that Tra
cy has told his duelling story to
throw tho officers off the trail. It is
possible that Tracy and Merrill ar
ranged to meet In the Hood's Canal
country or that Merrill was tho man
that ferried Tracy from this side of
Puget Sound to Port Madison.
Summed up, however, the situation
Is ono of doubt No one can tell
whether Tracy was lying about Mer
rill or not and it 1b argued that
Tracy has never been caught telling
a lie about anything else he has done.
Yet there is no sign of Merrill's body
dead or alive.
At 5 p. m. Sunday tho Bhorlff of
Plerco county telegraphed from Ta
coma that Steve Judson sajsv Merrill
between Stilacoom and Tacoma,
heading for Olympia. Merrill wore a
Princo Albert coat and a derby
hat; had a light moustache. Young
Judson may havo been mistaken.
Tracy's Two Wives.
Tracy's family affairs seem to be
somewhat mixed up as there are two
lnfm him for their hus
band. One Is Mollle Robinson, half
sister of Dave Merrill, who escaped
with Tracy. She 1b the properly ac-
credited wiie oi me oesperuuu u wm
country, as she Is known to have
been married to him and lived with
him in varlouB towns of tho west.
The other Is a woman In Chicago,
calling herself Mrs. Minnie Tracy,
and claiming to have been married
to the convict In 1893. She declares
that she understands that Tracy has
since been married to another woman
but that she holds her marriage cer
tificate and can prove her wifehood.
It is believed In Portland that tho
writer from Chicago Is some girl who
Is seeking, for notoriety. In the event
of Tracy's capture alive she will be
