The Blakely.' Statement of That Indict
ment a Quarter of a Century Ago.
(From Albany Democrat May 18.)
We have received the following
letters one from Capialn James
Blukely, of Brownsville. Captain
Blakely has resided In Brownsville
for fifty years, and formerly represent
ed Linn county in the legislature.
The other letter Is from Mr. Henry
Blakeiy, the democratic uominee for
sheriff. The light thrown on this
indictment affair ends, Just as people
who knew Henry Blakely declared R
would do, that is in his vindication.
The letters are as follows:
Brownsville, Or., May 18, 1896,
Editor Democrat,-
I desire to state that when my son
Henry was a young man, he wa
engaged in oaring for a band of my
cattle in Un atilla county, Oregon.
There was an indictment procured
against him by false testimony. The
entile which the indictment charged
Henry with steeling turned out to be
my own cattle, branded with my own
brand. My son on hearing of the
indictment voluntarily went to Pendle
ton and gave bonds to answer the
charge. There being absolutely no
foundation in the fact for the indict
ment my son was promptly discharged.
The story being told that I paid money
to procure sis discharge Is a malicious
falsehood. I never directly or Indi
rectly paid one cent to procure his dis
charge, and never heard of such a
thing, until lately. He was discharged
because he was innocent and the
district attorney so stated in open
court. James Blakely.
Bkownbville, Or., May 18, 1896.
The herald's malicious and untruth
ful statement in its columns of the
17th Instant that I have been dodging
to keep out of the penitentiary Is a
malicious falsehood and libel. Nearly
a quarter of a century ago I was herd
ing cattle for my father, James Blake
ly, iu Umatilla county, Oregon. An
enemy, while I was absent from Uma
tilla county, managed to procure an
indictment against me, falsely alleging
thut I had stolen some cattle. The
cattle alleged to have been stolen
turned out to be my father'B cattle and
were each of them branded with my
father's brand. As soon as I beard of
the indictment and without waiting to
be arrested I voluntarily went to Pen
dleton and gave bonds to answer to the
charge. The officers were thoroughly
satisfied that the indictment was ma
licious and without any foundation in
fact, The district attorney In open
court aunounced to the court that be
had investigated the matter and that
he was satisfied that I was innocent of
the commission of any offense and
voluntarily upon bis motion in open
court the case against me was dis
missed. The man instrumental in
securing the indictment against me
was arrested for stealing, convicted
and sentenced to the penitentiary.
I was born aud raised in Brownsville
was never sued and have never Bued
any one. I was maliciously made a
party to the Indictment above referred
to, answered it without being arrested,
aud my innocence thereof vindicated.
I have never dodged any officer and
never at auy time had reason to fear
the penitentiury, nor any other pun
ishment. I have always made my
word as good as my written obligation.
I cannot believe that my friends and
acquaintances iu Linn couuty believe
in or take auy stock in the slanderous
falsehoods of those who go back a
quarter of a century to dig up a mall
clous indictment procured by perjury.
My life hus been as an open book to
hundreds of the people of Linn county
and those who know me best, my
neighbors, are my warmest supporters.
T here promise the voters of Linn
county that if elected to the office of
sheriff I will honestly and fearlessly
do my whole duty
Hknky Blakely.

Strawberries are ripening now. The
reason we know this, a friend condes
cended to give us a few, and as they
were about one-third ripe, we know
they are ripening. We suppose the
warm spring rains that Oregon is
celebrated for, are helping them along.
We are glad "Trilby" found a few

vVe would feel like hiding or leaving
for some place unknown If we were the
boys who came back from the Salem
ball Sunday afternoon In such a plight
but such is the way our town Is gener
ally represented, If not at the dance,
on the way home. They are bound
to show how cute they are. We may
be mistaken, the boys might have
been glad to get back after being away
so long, but after they got inside the
corporation they shouldn't have dis
turbed the quiet of the town by Im
proving their lungs.
We have been hanging up against
fences, stores, barns, etc, listening to
the great puzzle of "Who Will Wiu?"
or politics. The populists seem to be
getting the worst of the puzzle as betb
of the old parties seem to be fighting
like mad to get the prize and the popu
lists are going to be snowed under,
unless they Join forces with one of the
old parties. Some of the candidates
will be elected though regardless of
politics, one of them we believe, from
what the republicans, democrats and
populists say, will be S. M. Garland,
the democrutio nominee for county
Judge, as he will poll a large vote from
each party. Ab for ourselves politics
are not troubling us, it is our own
scalp we are watching.
