The Reservation Desperadoes Gathered In at
Uranite Creek by Deputies Hal ley
From the E. O. .
Bebind tbe bara. y
Tbe Parr boys, reservation desperadoea,
one of wbom, Heury, swore tbat he would
never be taken alive, are now in this un
They were leaders in tbe party of
toughs w ho captured Athena and Adams,
made a hotel keeper danoe at tbe latter
place, rode up and dawn tbe streets, yell
ing and shooting, and elevated Ned gen
erally. After this ooourrenoe tbe Parr
boys made their escape, but two of their
suspected confederates, Joe Depot and
Antoiue Moran, were captured.
It was learned by the sheriff's oflioe
tbat the Parrs had gone in tbe direotion
of tbe John Day country. They are bard
"pills" to taokle, and it was an open bet
tbat they could not be taken without a
fatal skirmish. But deputy sheriffs John
Hailey and J. F. Johnson left Pendleton
Monday morning at 4 oclook, in a
buggy, to find the desperadoes if possi
ble. Tbe offioers arrived at tbe town of
Long Creek Tuesday night and learned
the following day tbat tbeir game was
encamped on Oranite creek, near Ar
buckle's place. Leaving tbeir rig at
Long Creek they procured saddle horses
and Wednesday afternoon started for
Granite creek, fifteen miles distant, ac
companied by a guide, Gns Sloan. They
arrived at 7:30 p. m., and secured a man
named Ed Allen to pilot them to where
the camp was located.
Leaving their horses behind the offioers
crawled cautiously along the steep banks
of the oreek, until within about 100 yards
of tbe camp, of wbiob they obtained a
good view. The Parr boys were being
visited by a young man nu,ie.d Arbuokle
and were "monkeying" with tbeir weap
ons. It was not deemed a good time to
attack, since the innooent visitor might
be hurt, and the orisis was postponed un
til next morning, the pursuers laying out
all night. It was very cold, and the
officers nearly shook their olothes off.
At i a'olock Sloan and Allen were sent
up tbe oreek to oome down from above,
and Hailey and Johnson wormed their
way carefully toward the camp. Shortly
after seven the Parr boys emerged from
tbeir tent, leaving tbeir pistols inside,
and buBied themselves in preparing
breakfast. The favorable moment had
come and the two deputy sheriffs appear
ed from behind a sheltering tree, leveling
tbeir Winchesters at the unsuspecting
men, wbo had no choice but to throw up
their hands. They were deprived of
tbeir weapons and brought to Pendleton,
arriving Friday night.
The Parrs had little to say about their
oapture, and made no attempt to escape
while on tbe road to Pendleton, which
wonld have been useless, anyway. Hen
ry rode in a buggy with Johnson and Joe
onme with Hailey on borsebaok. Hen
"You fellows worked a pretty slick
scheme, didn't you? If you had struck
us with our guns you would have had a
ltrht on vour bands.
There is no douotor tne trutn ot tms
statement, since tbe elder Parr, who was
at one time in tbe penitentiary, is a "bad
man" who deserves the distinction.'
In the Nick of Time.
Tbe nick of time to stop the course of
bladder and kidney ooumlaints is when
tbe organs oonoerned exhibit a tendency
to grow inactive. The healthful impulse
toward activity tbat they receive from
Hostetter's Stomaoh Bitters resoues
thom from impending dnnger, and averts
such dangerous maladies as Brigbt's
disease and diabetes. Sluggishness of
the kidnevs increases a liability to
ohronic rhenmntism, gout and dropsy,
and ainoe the blood is filtered by these
organs in its pasBBge through them, the
operation of the Hitters serves a aouDiy
hannv Diimose. The medicine acts
without exciting, like tbe fiery stimulants
of commerce. Miilanal, dyspeptio, oon
atinnted and nervous invalids are thor-
oiiehlv relieved by it. Siuoe the advent
of that shocking malady, la grippe, it has
been widely demonstrating its useiui
ness as a curative and preventive of it.
While attempting to ford the Middle
Fork of tbe John Day river last Matur
day, J. N. Ricbey, of Sasanville, lost his
team and wagon and came near losing his
own life. The river was very high, which
together with tbe capers of a young ani
mal which Mr. Ricbey was driving was
the cause of the whole affair. His team
began backing in the river and upon ap
proaching a swift current, without warn
ing, the wagon was overturned, and team
and all carried down the stream, which
resulted as before stated. Since the high
water has subsided it is learned that Mr.
Kichey's team and wagon was found
lodged againHt a drift at some distance
down the river.
This is an accident of frequent oocur
rence when one attempts to lord these
treacherous mountain streams during the
high water season. tagle.

After staving it off as long as possible
on the question of constitutionality, tbe
house judiciary oommittee has at last de
cided to report a resolution direoting an
investigation to be made into the Pinker-
ton system. It is to be hoped that the
result will not be a coat of whitewash for
that notorious private army.
The ohairmnn of tbe national people's
party central oommittee Btates that there
is no truth in the report that there is a
fusion of tbe alliance in Minnesota with
the democratic party. Similar reports
from other states are also denied. Such
reports are sent out by old party leaders
to frighten their former adherents baok
into tbe old parties.
There is no use in longer trying to re
form tbe old parties. It cannot be done
from within. "Reform" has been tbe
campaign cry of tbe old parties for years,
but oan any reform be shown? Tbe
square men of both parties have long
been trying to reform them, but without
success; the parties have become more
and more corrupt. It has been fully dom
oust rate. 1 that tbe only hope of relief for
tbe people is in a new party of tbeir own,
and that is why the people's party is in
existenoe and daily growing in strength.
There is no danger that the people's
party will "fuse with the democrats" or
"fuse with the republicans," as lying re
ports from distant states would have un
informed people to believe. There will
be no half-way work. The people's par
ty means business from start to finish.
To silenoe false rumors a resolution has
just been adopted by tbe national execu
tive committee which declares that the
party is unalterably opposed to fusion
with either of the old parties, and will
not recognize any individual, oommittee
or organization which proposes to enter
into any suoh fusion.
In the senute the other day Call offered
a resolution for tbe appointment of i
oommittee of nine senators to inquire in
to the present value per mile of tbe rail
ways of the United States; tbeir present
capitalization and the difference between
such capitalization and tbe aotual cost
of construction and equipment; their
gross and net receipts; the number and
compensation ot their employes; their
indebtedness and the oapital stocks and
amount of bonds and stock held by stock
holders and bondholders, distinguishing
between home and foreign holders. A
good thing; but the resolution went over
without Botion. Such a resolution as
that wouldn't suit tbe railroad attorneys
who hold seats in the senate. The paid
servants of tbe companies are ever watob-
ful to crush in its inception any measure
tbat has tbe appearance of a step toward
tbe nationalization of transportation
lines. Let the people be as watohful ot
tbeir own interests, and tbe great monop
olies will not always be able to oontrol
legislation to their own selfish ends.
