Twenty-five or Thirty Families Com?
Ing in Search of Homes in the Gol
den West . r
The first installment of immif
grants under the new immigration
movement Inaugurated by the Harri-
man llnes.wlll arrive in the city this
evening over the O. R. & N.
This installment consists of 25 or
30 families who. are looking for a lo
cation' In the West and there is good
reason to believe that a number of
them will stop over in this city and
look over the surrounding country in
search of locations.
These .families arecoming West in
connection with the immigration
movement recently inaugurated by
the Harriman lines, whereby they are
endeavoring to induce the people of
the over-crowded East -to come West
and grow up with the country.
Literature Was Circulated.
For some time the railway, has
been circulating throughout the East
literature supplied by the road and
boards of trades or other organ
izations of Oregon, descriptive of the
country, its resources and the oppor
tunities for investment to be found
Many people who wished to better
their condition have received this
literature and decided to come and
see for themselves the beautiful
country so graphically described,
the colony coming tonight being the
first fruits of the movement.
They Have Money.
Nearly all these people are well
supplied with money as most of them
sold out nice places in the East and
brought the money West to invest
with the hope of obtaining better and
more rapid returns. They are in
search of agricultural and timber

TRACY'S THREE CONFEDERATES
CAKE FROM PERRY. OREGON
It now seems possible that Tracy
and Merrill may be intending to
strike into Oregon and perhaps into
the Grande Ronde valley with the
outlaw band which they are reported
to be organizing'in the vicinity of Se
attle. This belief is brought about by the
fact that the three men who were
arrested at Renton oa suspicion of
being" accomplices of Merrill in as
sisting Tracy to elude the officers of
the law, have peen ppsitively identi
fied by the keeper of the boarding
house for the Grande Itonde Lumber
Company at. Perry, as" having been
employes of the company for a long
time: and having been regular atten
dants af her table Jor .many, months
past ' " ,

Rltche and the two men, -wbO), were

More Accomplices In Valley.
It Is believed that Tracy may have
more accomplices in that neighbor
hood, as there are known to be many
tough characters, such as Hill, the
ex-convict who was shoe by an ofl.
cer in La Grande last week, and
others who would be only too glad
to assist tho desperado to escape and
enlist under his standard should be
set up his .banner of outlawry in the
Desperadoes Worked There.
It is also declared by the people
about the' mill that Both Tracy and
Merrill are. believed to" have been
employed there several years ago, al
though under different names, their
pictures published in the papers be
ing identified as .those- of n who
worked at the mill years ,ago, and
who were known to ' be desperate
Should this prove true, It would
add strength to the possibility of the
outlaws beading this way, as they
would be acquainted with the coun
try and all its tough characters.
Oregon may yet have a reign of
desperadolsm which will outrival the
doings of Jesse James.
