Scented a Plot.
Captain Rldgeway, scenting a plot,
began an Investigation. The bottle
contained the label of a Walla Walla
drug store and going to the store the
nnntnin learned who had purchased
the bottle. The matter was laid be
fore the police and the woman ioca
Mamie Morrison, of the
tenderloin district. Tho woman ad
mitted that she bougut tno acm iur
Adams. Sho said he said he sent her
t o tir in i' hpr to net It for him
as he wanted to use it for blacksmith-
lng purposes. She never tnougnt mu
he really wanted It for this purpose
a ,.n it in him. Sho denies any
knowledge of a scheme to liberate the
prisoners by using tho aciaB on uie
iron bars of the guard bouse and the
police are of the opinion that she la
telling the truth.
Was For Desperate Men.
Adams Is serving a sentence in the
guard house for a Blight offense.
Frank Dymond and William Robinson
rp"ently arrested at Pendleton by
sheriff Till Taylor, were also in prison
and the officers at tho fort think they
wanted' tho acid to free themselves
ohnnWPH which they have
been kept in Blnce their return to the
guard house. These two men are saa
to bo desperate and would have used
tho acid on any of the guarda had
they been successful in getting free
of their prison and the guardB bad
tried to frustrate their escape.
