Will Vindicate Himself.

as a book agent, and troauenter of

I He was arrested last night just at
midnight on the charge of forgery. J.
j M. Bently was the man who swore
out the warrant for Brown's arrest,
. and It charged Brown with forgery.
The offense charged Is that Brown
forgej Bently's namo to an ordor for
a history of Umatilla county without
the knowledge of Mr. Bently. It will
be remembered that several months
ago Brown was In Pendleton canvass
ing for his history and taking orders
for its delivery. He secured many
to help him. Ho has received much
encouragement, and he Is fast getting
"spoiled." Many people think he
should be awakened to the fact that
he will be expected hereafter to be
self-supporting. He Is a first-class
worker in metals, and the loss of a
limb is no bar, and little lnconvenl
ence to bench work.
It is alleged that In acordance with
his own story, there Is no heroism
whatever in the mishap by which he
lost his leg. Ho got in the murder
ous convict's w ay accidentally, and
was not making any intentional ef
fort to prevent escape or to prevent
the shooting of the guards. Conse
quently his full pardon from prison
even though deprived of one leg, was
a fortunate termination of an unfor-

The Elks of Seattle made a success ' lature a day or two since, with a view
of engaging their help to secure ar
appropriation next winter to set hlra
up in business, says the Salem cor
respondent to the Portland Telegram
One of the members advised him to
have any move of that character
started by the members of his old
home Linn county which would
give it a better standing than to have
it Introduced by some stranger.
Hon. W. R. Bllycu was one of the
attorneys who defended Ingram when
he was tried for killing his brother
and he Is now a member-elect of the
legislature, and he knows more about
the real merits of Ingram's demand
than any other member could possl
bly know. The facts surrounding the
man's alleged crime are also well
known in Linn county, and tho meas
ure of sympathy for him there and of
the wish to help him with an appro
priation would form a good basis up
on which to cuage merits.
