Charged With a Grave Crime. May
Also be Called Upon to Answer
the Accusation of Murder
When all is Known.
EUGENE, Or., June 22.-H. P.
Hayes, of Kail creik precinct, this
vounty, was arrested at the residence
of his slater, Mrs. Bultrxks, two miles
from Junction City, about noon today,
and is now In lite county jail here,
with a charge of incest against him.
He may alto be called upon to answer
the charge of murder before his case Is
settled. Hayes Is a schoolteacher, an j
has a niece in the the same neighbor
hood, Miss Susan Walker, who is also
a schoolteacher. Miss Walker last
night gave birth to a girl baby, and
charges Hayes with being her betrayer
and the father ol her child. Blie went
to her mother two weeks ago and
made a confession as to her condition.
About May 1, the father of Miss
Walker had an liitl ration of the con
dition of his daughter, and one day
told Hayes that if his suspicions ma
terialized he would kill the guilty
tuan. May 15, Walker went to work
in the morning about his barn, but
was taken suddenly and violently ill,
and was taken to his houae, where be
soon died iu great agony, having
spasms and violent convulsions. For
some reason the o se was not leported
to the coroner, and Walker's reruaiuB
were intered without any Inquest or
post-mortem examination. Thimoru
iug, when Coroner Harris heard of the
facts, he went to the place for the pur
pose of having the body exhumed and
an analysis tuade of the contents of
the stomach.
The people living in tbe neighbor
hood are very much wrought up over
the affair. Hayes is being held here
and will not be taken before Justice
Callison for examination until the ex
citement subsides. Hayes seems to
realize Uls position, and expressed a
wish to end hie existence.
Bandit Brady Still at Large.
REDDING, Cal., June 23. The lat
est reports from Anderson are that
there has been a battle between Bandit
Brady and his pirsuers. Sheriff
Houston came iu a while ago, and
stated that be had beard several shots.
There is a well organized posse of
more than 100 meti, under the direc
ts n of Sheriff Housion, wutcbing the
thickets whlcti they have surrounded.
Happy valley, so-called, where Bratly
is hid, is a long stretch of level,, laud
devoted to orchards and vlnejardf,
nnd is well irrigated, Where not
cleared It is very brushy, furnishing a
good hiding place and plenty of water
and fruit close at hand. Abut
Brady's camp, apple cores and other
traces were seen, but Brady was not
there. It is thought be is working
Tonight a large party left here un
der command District Attorney Rose
to assist, and every young and able
bodied man is pressed Into service. So
far, Brady has outwitted them all. It
Is known that be is not badly woun
ded, as at first supposed. The mar
shal says Brady left bis hiding place
to come north on accouut of an acci
dent Which made him believe he was
unsafe, Tbe horse and cart were prob
ably loaned him by a friend, as it is
known that friends have beeu assisting
hint. People here assert that Brady Is
a sou of a preacher named Gilbert in
Fall river valley, but this Is thought to
be a mistuke.
Brady will probably be captured to
morrow. An Attempted Jail Break.'
TACOMA, June S3. Seven prison
ers, headed by Tom Hayden, a noted
con vlct, captured and beat Night Jailer
tiibbsat the Pierce county jail this
forenoon, when he was carrying lu
their breakfast. They would have es

Jailer Goodrich iu closing the door
leading out of the cage. Glbbs is not
badly injured. Hayden has served

prison, and goes to Walla Walla this
week to serve four more for burglary.

A Sound Boat Burned.
SEATTLE, Juno 22. The steamer
Annie M. Pence, running between the
Islands and Seattle, took lire at Sara
toga Pass lost night at 11:80 o'clock and
was destroyed. T. H. Sullivan, cook
on the steamer, was drounded, being
forced to take to I he water to save
himself from the flames. The rest of
the crew got on board a icowhrnd of
hay, which the steamer was towing,
and-, cutting adrift, they escaped
death. The fire was a terrible one, and
had enveloped the bout and the crew
almost before any one was aware. The
fire is supposed to have started from a
spark near the boiler room. The
stamer was halt a mile from shore
when she cnught fir.'. After she had
burned out, the stcum?r Munroe came
along and beached her. The vessel
was owned by Captain Joshua Green,
and wis valued at (5000.
The fire was discovered by the watch
man, who rushed to the pilot-housa
and gave the alarm to Captain Joshua
Greeert, the owner, who was at the
wheel. By this time the flames had
spread over the whole steamtr and
her cargo of hay, but the watchman
knocked at the doors of each of the
sleeping crew, who came out in their
nifhlclothes, and saved themselves.
He Ibiuks that Sullivan came eut
also, hut went back for a valise, and,
becoming confused, jumped into the
water. '
Silver Will Advance.
WASHINGTON, June 22.-The
treasury officials anticipate that the
payment of the Chinese war indemuity
of 200,000,000 taels will result in ma
terial Increase iu the market price of
The present quotation of silver Is
67j cents an ounce, which is an ad
vance of 4 cents over the quotations of
a year ago. The present price antici
pated to some extent the expected rise,
and is also the result of the increased
demand caused by the war expenses of
both governments.
At present there is uot to exceed
000,000 ounces of silver bullion in the
United States, outside of tbe amount
owned by tbe government. At the
present price of silver tbe amount re
quired by Cbina would equal about
1143,000,000 worth of bullion.
They Command Fancy Prices.
CHICAGO, June 22. Strawberries
as large as good sized waluuts, picked
from vines iu Seattle, Washington,
arrived In this city Monday. It was
the first shipment of the sort.
Represeulatives of leading hotels,
restaurauts and fancy grocery houses
took the fruit readily at prices varying
from 3 to (9 per case, or five to fifteen
ceut per quart. Seattle shippers were
notified of the successful outcome of
their venture and expressed their
hearty satisfaction. It opens a new
market for what has heretofore been
considered commodities too perishable
tor such a lout distance shipment.

Absolutely pure
Argument in the Matter of the Confir
mation of the Sale of the
Oregon Pacific
The evidence in tbe Swartz trial is
all in. The jury and an audience as
large as the courtroom would contain,
listened all day, the 19th init., at Sa
lem, to the details of the death of Ed
ward Swartz, and the expert testimony
of physicians, on the operation per
formed to save his life. The chain of
evidence surely points to Alonzo
Swartz as the murderer of his son.
Swartz, whiee ou the aland, testified
that Edward rushed for a gun, and it
wash) wresting it from biin that tbe
knife was used. The testimony Is un
supported. It is extremely doubtful if
the evidence of the physicians will
warrant the conclusion that the death
of Edward was due to the operation,
rather than the stab. '
The trial was concluded last Friday
afternoon, and the jury after three and
a half hours' deliberation, returned a
verdict of murder In th( second degree.
Tbe first ballot of tbe Jury stood five
for murder in the first degree, five for
second degree, and two for manslaugh
ter. The sixth ballot showed thera
unanimous for the second degree.
Sentence was pronounced Saturday
and tbe prisoner was taken to the pen.
itentiary to spend tbe rest of bis na
tural life. One of the jurors who sat
in the Swartz case stated since that,
that twenty years ago, he forced
Swartz to put away a gun be bad
drawn on his wife.
The Argument Ended.
On the convening of the supreme
court, June 19, at Salem, J. R. Bryson
concluded bis argument in behalf of
the Oregon Pacific railroad, taking an
hour and a half. Mr. Bryson con
trasted the oft-quoted expression of At
torney Bronaugh, that "the Oregon
Pacific road is worthless, beinniug in
a duck puddle and ending In a snow
bank," with his present position. He
claimed that the only question now Is
that of adequacy of price. Following
Mr. Bryson, George G. Bingham
spoke for a quarter of an hour In be-'
half of the employes of the road. He
asked that, in case the sale be set aside,
the cause of his clients be given prior
ity over other claimants. In the
course of his remarks Mr. Bingham
charged that all appellants were con
nected with the Hogg faction.
Volumes of records in tbe Oregon
Pacific case were filed in tbo supreme
court, and its destiny left iu the hands
ot the court. It is hardly probable
that a decision will be reached within
a month, and possibly a much longer
time will be required.
Tbe following order was entered in
the supreme oourt: Charles L. Wat
son, appellant, vs. William Buckler et
al., respondents; ordered that the time
for serving and filing additional ab
stract by the respondent be further ex
tended ten days from June 20, 1805. .
A Lawmaker to be Hanged.
From advices in Portland, It Is
learned that Paul P. Laweon, a popu
list ex-member of tbe Idaho legisla
ture, was found guilty, at Cbullls,
Idaho, June 14, of murder in the first
degree, for killing Georgo W. WatBon,
near Houston, Custer county, and was
sentenced by. District Judge C O.
Stockslager, to be banged July 20.
The murder of Watson by Lawson
was particularly atrocious. The evi
dence in the trial showed that Lawson
bad lain in wait for his victim, and
shot him in the back, May 15, witb a
shotgun loaded with buckshot and
slugs. The only motive for the crime
was thut Watson last;' fa II, in a fight
with Lawson, had given him a severe
thrashing; and, as Lawsou had been
poaluf tf $ "bad u" ud of
Latest U. S. Gov't Report
the settlement about Houston, be hail
concluded to "get even" for the loss of
prestige entailed by the drubbing ad
ministered to him.
After the killing, Lawson stood
gnrd fur several hours over the body,
refusing to let any one come near li.
exclaiming: "This Is my meat, and
nobody can touch It till I sny so,''
coupled with horrible obscenities. But
tinnlly ajuslice of the pence, friendly
to the murderer, with the aid of a few
friends, all of 'whom were nnued, held
what they called an inquest behind
locked doots, returning a verdict of
"justifiable homicide." ' -
The residents of Houston and vicin
ity had by this time become aroused at
the high-handed proceedings, and they
delegated one of their number to pro
ceed to Challis, the county seat, and
swear out a warrant for the assassin .
The sherlfl and coroner repaired to the
scene of the crime. The former arres
ted Lawson, and (he latter exhumed
the body and held an Inquest, which
resulted in the slayer being charged
with murder "with malice afore
thought." The subsequent trial at
Challis lasted six days, and the jury
brought in a verdict of murder in the
first degree an hour after the case was
submitted to them. The usual notice
of application for a new trial was
given, but the general opinion is that,
it will not be grunted, as the judge wan
extremely fair in his rulings. Oregon
ian. Senator Mitchell's Views.
Senator Mitchell being asked us to
the subject of bimetallsin, says: "Any
teal blnietalism, except where silver
and gold are treated exactly alike so
far as coinage is concerned at a fixed
ratio, is impossible. I believe iu the
unlimited coinage of both metals. I
believe neither metal should be treated
simply as a commodity, butasa money
metal. I would perfer to see this ac
complished by an international agree
ment. My hope that this can be
brought about is of the faintest possi
ble character. Therefore, I am in favor
of Independent action by the United
States alone. I am In favor ot sound
money gold, silver and paper eaoh
dollar of which must be the equival
ent in money value and purchasing
power of tbe other two. I am unalter
ably opposed to a single gold standard.
I do uot believe with many that the
opening of our mints to the free and
unlimited coinage of both gold and sil
ver would result in bringing us to a
silver Btaudard. I believe in the dec
laration of the first national republican
platform in the use of both gold aud
silver as a standard money. By utiliz
ing the two precious metals of the
country as money as the cnustitutl.m
of the United Statts intended they
should be, the people of this country
would be furnished with a domestic
money which would, in my judgment,
result in vastly increased development
of resources. Our reports to meet our
foreign balances would be largely In
creased, and us a conscience the an
nual balances of trade abroad would
be correspondingly diminished. The
price of all commoditled, especially
foreigu, would also be vastly Increased.
"I do not belivo there will he a com
plete restoration of business prosperity
so long as we adhere tn the single gold
standard. Of course the business of
tbe country will improve. It is, in
my judgment, improving' snmewhat
now. Tbe present prospect, for good
crops, especially on this coast, will do
much in that direotiou, but in my
judgment, this country as a, whole,
will never realize that full measure of
prosperity to which we are justly en
titled until silver is re mo ietized, aud
by this I mean simply the repeal of
the coinage law by which it was de
monetized." A Rush for Sileu.
There promises to be something of
a rush for lauds on the Siletz when
the day arrives for tiling. Four teams
passed through Saturday, three Tues
day and oneesterduy, all bound for
that vicinity. Those who expeot to
settle should not forget that half a dol
lar per acre must be paid when the
filing Is made on the laud and an addi
tional dollar per acre when ffnal proof
is made. It is probable that tunny of
the laud hunters, when they find they
cannot get gratis, a farm well im
proved by some Indian, Willi a fine
bouse, hot and cold water conveniences,
will turn their backs o.i the Siletz and
return disgusted from wueiive tbey
