CONGRESSMAN MOODY TELLS
HOW BILL WAS SIGNED.
Up Until Thirty Minutes Before
Adjournment Secretary Hitchcock
Opposed President Roosevelt Sign
ing the Measure.
'District Attorney T. G. Halley has
received the following letter from
Congressman Moody, relating to the
hard fight he had In getting the Res
ervation bill signed by the president:
"I am certain that any one less
constant in his efforts would have
failed. I discovered a stumbling
block In the secretary of the Interior
who opposed the bill after It passed
the senate. I undertook to satisfy
hm that the legislation was wise and
just, not only to the Indians but to
the citizens of adjoining counties as
well as the county government, and
supposed that I had succeeded until
about 330 minutes before adjourn
ment, when I found that the secre
tary of the Interor had advised the
president not to sign the bill.
"Fortunately the cabinet was with
the president in his room in the rear
of the senate where he comes at the
close of the senate to sign bills at
the last moment.
"Secretary Cortolyou, out of his
abundance of precaution, had brought
the bill with hm and with tears in my
eyes I pleaded with the secretary of
the interior until he finally consented
to withdraw his -objection and asked
the president to sign the bill."

Seattle, July 9. Convict Tracy has once more disappeared Just when
the. officers thought they had him nicely" surrounded. The posse received
word this morning that Tracy had been seen talking to Farmer Jensen,
three-quarters of a mile south of Renton this morning and at once hast
ened to the scene with the hounds.
They learned from the farmer that he had seen and talked with the
convict, who asked him if he was looking for Tracy, and upon his reply

Gerald house at Renton, but ho gave
them the slip and was gone ten min

derson, the man ho kidnapped, tied
to a tree, back of the house.
The news of his presence at the
Gerald house was brought to the
sheriff's office by 17-year-old Thomas
Gerald, who gave an accurate de
scription of the desperado. Three
posses immediately started In pur

It was believed that the convict,
who was known to be completely
w,orn out, having had no sleep since
Sunday, could be brought to bay and
the last deadly struggle was expected
at any moment.
When the posse closed In, however,
it was found that the bird had flown.
Two of the best bloodhounds in the
state are now working on the trail
and the posse is confident that they
will soon capture the desperado.
Tracy .left the house by a rear door
while the posse were taking up their
positions to watch the place, hid for
a few moments in some of the bushes

through the woods toward Palmer.
The wonderful nerve of tho convict
was never more fully exemplified
than In this Instance. In the back

Madison, tied to a troo. Tracy had
