“ Loved Ones" Behind on
Something of a sensation was sprung
in this city the first of the week when
it was reported that B. F. Wagley, the
vehicle man who opened up a business
place here some few months ago, had
left for parts unknown and with him it
is said, he took Mrs. Lillian Bond, who
will also be rem em bered as having had
a residence here until recently, when
she and her husband moved to Ta­
Rumors have been current here for
some time but no definite information
could be found until T h e News man
met Mr. Bond, the husband of the
eloping woman, in Portland last Satur­
day. Bond was pacing the streets of
that city with an anxious eve cast on
everybody who looked in the least like
his better half, when he met The News
H e immediaiely began an in-
qiury concerning the movements of our
late vehicle dealer and on being in­
formed that he had not been seen in
Forest Grove for a week past, it seemed
to blast all hopes of finding any trace
of Mrs. Bond.
Bond stated that Wag-
ley had arrived at Tacom a on the pre­
ceding Friday and on Sunday, two
weeks ago they left ror pa ts unknown.
Mrs. Bond was staying with her sister
in that city and when she suspicioned
that an elopem ent was in progress she
immediately informed Mr. Bond, who
was working for a sister at Castle R ock,
Wash., and he set out for Tacom a and
found that his wife had disappeared.
H e then returned to Portland hoping
there to get some clue to their where­
abouts. Bond says that her sister told
him that she thought W agley and
Mrs. Bond had gone to California,
where Bond claims he will go in search
of them after he is satisfied that they
are not in Portland.
Almost immediately following the
disappearance of Mr. Wagley, Mr. G.
H . Cash, representing the Studebaker
Bros. C o., of Portland, arrived in For­
est Grove, and is holding down a chair
in the doorway of the business place of
Mr. Wagley. W nen seen by The
News he denied all knowledge of the
affair and assured us that Mr. Wagley
was expected back any day.
asked if he came out here to take
charge of the store he stated that he
had not, but assured The News that
Art Caples was in charge.
Mr. Caples
is in the em ploy of Mr. Wagley but
does not know any more about the
whereabouts of his employer than does
any of the rest.
That it is a case of elopem ent pure
and simple, seems apparent as The
News has com e into possession of a
letter from Mrs. B. F. W agley, written
from Lakeview, Wash, to a friend here
asking for informrtion concerning Mr.
W agley’ s whereabouts. In the letter
Mrs. Wagley claims that “ he (W a g le y )
is a little off and has been lately.
W here he is now I do not know. That
woman is at the bottom of it all.”
She expresses hope of soon finding him
and bringing him back to his "norm al
condition again.”
She further states
that, “ I wrote the Portland firm to take
charge of his business down there.”
T h e letter infers that it is not any
financial difficulty that occasioned his
disapt earance as she further states, “ I
am not worrying about what he owes
as much as where he is.”
Mr. Wagley came to Forest Grove
som e time in the early part of the year
with Mrs. Bond and started her up in
the restaurant business which termi­
nated abruptly when Mrs. Bond’ s hus­
band appeared on the scene and pro­
ceeded to make matters decided y
warm for the vehicle man bv a fistic
encounter in which Mr. Wagley cam e
out where Britt did in San Francisco
Tuesday night. This infuriated him
to the extent that he called on Sheriff
Connell to assist him in setting the
Bonds into the street. This action
brought about two ten thousand dollar
damage suits; one against the sheriff
and the other against Mr. W agley.
few months later the suits were adjust­
ed out of court by Mr. W agley and the

In the evening there will be d ev o­

Bonds left for Tacoma, where the tale
begins over again.
Deputy Sheriff Kane came to this
city this morning and turned the goods
which were sold to B. F. Wagley on
consignment, back to the Studebaker

Portland tomorrow.

Prominent Figure In Business Here
Mrs. William Kane on Fifth Street,
has been having jewelry stolen from
her residence for the past few weeks
until she has a very few pieces left.
The theif is some one who is acquaited
with the house and the movements of
its occupants and the ariicles are re­
moved in the daytime and when there
is no one at home.
Mr. and Mrs.
Kane have been in the habit of leaving
the doors of the house unlocked while
away which in each case the jewelry
has been taken with the exception of
the last article, when the theif becam e
bolder and took advantage of the fact
that Mr. and Mrs. Kane were in the
front yard reading, which occurred last
Sunday. Mrs. Kane reports that she
has thus far lost a stickpin with a gold
nugget setting, a gold wire ring with a
garnet setting, pair cuff buttons, her
Eastern Star pin, collar button with a
pearl center and lastly, a gold breast
pin with some twenty-three or four
pearls. Most all these articles were
keepsakes and to lose them is to part
with something that is very dear to her.
In each case the theif has entered
the house from the rear and at times
when the back door was known to be
locked, a ladder which stood against
the house, has been the means of en­
trance. T o do this the theif has layed
in wait until Mrs. Kane left the house.
N o other articles have been touched
and the articles have been removed
from the dresser.
It is thought by her that she has a
good idea who the petty theif is and
every possible means will be taken to
recover the property if it is not returned
in due course of time.
