garb of gray and after escpaing from
Sheriff Gage he traded off his trous
ers for a pair of overalls to a hobo
he met near Oakland. For this of
fense, Vaughn was given tho 20 days
on the rock pile. Vaughn says he did
not proposoto wear prison garb when
trying to get away. After being re
captured Vaughn looked on the affair
in a philosophical way, saying he
wanted to get away to so his family
and said no one could blame him for
attempting to escape. Vaugh told
Sheriff Gage and Condron he consid
ered hi.nself mighty lucky to be alive
as tho deputy fired at him at short
range and had his aim been directed
towards him he surely would have
been slain. This was when the hobo
ho sent out to rustle a meal for him
returned with the officer. In discuss
ing his attempt to escape Vaughn
said tho officers would have had a dif
ficult time catching him if ho had
been successful in getting only one
meal. He had been through the
brush for ten or tyvclvo miles and hib
clothing was nearly all torn to xhrcds
Vaughn did not follow tho roads, and
fell in with tho hobos when ho got
m the vicinity of Oakland.
