BREAK IS FOILED
Dallas. Or., Dec 21. Albert Lewis
and Charles Cosso, two Polk county
prisoners confined in the county Jait
ia this city, attempted to escape from
Ute county jaU Thursday night but
were- roiiea tn their escape by Depu
tjr Sheriff T. B. Hooker.
A. third prisoner in the Jail was tv
eu til Thursday and while Mr. Hooker
was looking lor a physician he turned
the men loose In the corridors for a
Uttle exercise and while absent they
damaged the locks on their cells to
uch an extent that they could open
the measily they thought after the
deputy had gone home for the night
Mr. Hooker, however, was informed
at their intentions by parties who in
passing the Jail heard the noise nl
locked the men up in different cells
when he returned with the physician.
- Xewis is serving a sentence for lar
ceny whije Gosso who was captured
by Sheriff Orr while in Salem the
first of the week Is wanted for break
ing into several stores In Dallas early
In the spring of this year. At one
time he was captured by the police of
Portland but turned loose before the
Polk county officials could get their
hands on him. Since his arrest he is
said to have confessed to the robberies
here. Gosso called to some small
boys last night while they were pass
ing the jail and asked them to bring
him some fire but upon their refusal
declared, that "he . would kill them
when he got out." He has also threat
ened to "get Sheriff Orr and several
other Dallas citizens." - . - . . i
Taxpayers at Budget Meeting.
A big gathering of taxpayers from
ail parts of the county was held in
Dallas Friday at the hearing of the
county court relative to the annua!
budget, outlined by the court for the
coming year. Several material -changes
were made in the budget among which
was the setting- aside of the sum of
92000 from the road and bridges fund
to be used in raising the salaries of
the deputies employed in the various
offices in the court house.
The taxpayers also went on record
as favoring the employment of a coun
ty agricultural agent and by a unani
mous vote made known their wash in
this respect to the court. This move
ment has been up before the various
farmer organizations for some time
and today, being the logical time for
making their demands the farmers
, were herein force to see that they
were put across.
The meeting was one of the largest
held at a budget meeting in Dallas
for many years, the people from the
rural communities taking more lnter
. eat In affairs of the county now than
in former years.
. Robbers Still at large. .
The pacties who robbed the Stafrin
drug store and . the J. C. Penny store
in this city sometime Sunday night are
still at large but the county authori
ties are working on clues which may
lead to the arrest of the burglars. One
of the kodaks stolen from the Stafrin
drug store was found' this week under
a seat in a motor car in the Southern
Pacific vards in tha south part of the
city. The car is the one from which
the small handax was stolen which
was used in entering the buildings.
The kodak had evidently been left be
hind on account of the robbers not
being able to get it In one of the suit
cases stolen from the Penny store and
which was used to carry away the

were all taken away.
