Arthur - Penn and he is also the
postmaster. . It was found, Sat
urday morning, that about $38
worth of stamps,: a? well as some
bicycle fixtures and other things
had been taken daring the night.
Suspicion pointed to Wayne Starr
but no move was taken towards
informing the authorities here in
town until about three o'clock ia
the afternoon,"'when Sheriff Bur
nett received, a telephone message
telling hira f the robbery. The
sheriff and Deputy Prosecatia?
Attorney;5 Bry son at one, began
to investigate the matter, and it
was learned that Wayne Starr
had crossed the ferry about one
o'clock in the afternoon, presum
ably enronte for his hOmelnSoda
ville. r'rfe v ' - .
Sheriff , Baraett' telephoned to
all parts of Liua county to the
varioos offieials to apprehend
Starr, bnt could get no satisfac
tion. However, late Saturday
night the sheriff received a com
munication from Deeafy Sheriff
McHargne, of Albany, informing
him that Starr had been located
at the home of his J father, in
Sodayille,': anel .Hhat if SHeriff
Burnett desired be, MoHargue,
wohld go after him. Accordingly
it was agreed that he should ar
rest Starr. This be did about
3 a. in. Sunday. . ...
-Sunday forenoon ir. . Burnett
and Mi. Bryson went over to Al
bany after Starr. When arrested
he " had objected to having his
trank searched, and Deputy Mc
Hargue, having no warrant, was
helpless to proceed in that direc
tion although he secured several
items that would greatly assist
the prosecution.. The authori
ties of Linn tamed Starr over to
the Benton authorities who pro
ceeded to weave a net about him
which bewildered him greatly.
At first Starr, who is a young
fellow about' 22 years of age,
stated that he had : started for
Philomath in response to a tele
phone message from his wife, and
had eone by way of Dustv. He
told that it was late when he got
there and he slept in a barn,
that he had arrived in Philo
math about daybreak? Saturday
morning. When the officials
confronted him with the perfor
ated ; margins of a lot ef stamp
sheets and asked him to account
for them, he said that he had re
cently been to Eugene and when
there hod purchased 6 worth ot
stamps. V He was asked if he was
acquainted.; with anyone in that
place and replied. in the affirma
tive, J Asked if he met any ac
quaintances,' be .replied that he
but,' but Could net for the life of
him remember who they were.
He was shown a bunch of his keys
and asked which one he used to
open the store door at Dusty.
He stated that he did not wnlock
the door, because he found it
ajar. - .;,h- -,;v4 .
i Finally h- broke down and
confessed: the .whole affair, and

In writing from him, ;He was
