Outlaw Harry Tracy is belie ved to
be traveling southeast from this place
in the direction of ItitzviHc. A fanner
named Perkins, living three mihs
southeast of Alinira, saw a man with
two horses and two rifles, passing his
place in a southeasterly direction
early this morning. Sheriff Do Bolt,
of Douglas county, arrived in Alinira.
shortly before noon today, and on
hearing the story left for the Perkins
laneh. He has not been seen since.
Sheriff Cudiheeof Seattle, arrived ii.
Alinira from Wilson Creek, via Coulee
City, late tonight.
The fact that Sheriff Do Bolt has
not been heard from leads him to be
lieve that he is hot on the trial.
Oudihee left' for the Perkins rn.w.h
with a team late tonight.' Cudihee
(irmly Wlicves that Tracy passed
through Coulee City about 11:30 last
night. A man riding one horse, with
a packhoise following, rode up the
main street of that town mid was
seen by several residents.
There is also a story that Tracy was
seen near the Welsh church at .'!
o'clock this morning, but this cannot
bo verified. Sheriff Gardner, of Lin
coln county, is co-operating with
Siier.ff De Holt in the chase, Be Bolt
is to scour the country between
Alinira and Rit.ville, while Sheriff
'Gaidner is to guard the northern
route. (1 ll'lllMT llHM l'Ilt fill 1 1 Imimi ttt
