It is now believed, providing the story of young Tagerson Is true, that the desperadoes have been lying quietly in the brush since their encounter, Monday night, with Dlesecker and. Da vidson, as the Targerson ranch Is not ovr three mllee from the point where the encounter occurred. The fact they. did not disclose their Identity to ,Tar - gerson, and did not demand food with their usual bravado, indicates they are keeping quiet with the evident Inten tion of giving their pursuers the slip.'

Charles Perrell is not of a boastful -disposition. , He Is a quiet man. chuck full" of ?and nd determination.: He is a man who makes a strong friend or .- a bitter enemy. i' It was no Idle bombast that prompted Perreirs declaration: i He means busi- - tress.' and no 'man In jthla f amous man hunting expedition ts more desirous of j capturing Tracy and Merrill or -more Impatient at delays f than this clear eyed, email-framed man In a mackln- aw jacket: : j. : , '. , -:' H ' Charles perrell Is a brother of Frank Ferrell, the first of the guards shot down in cold blood by Tracy ahd Mer rill at the Oregon- PenltenUary. Vi Since his appearance on the ground FerreH has chafed at every delay. urged action and given sound- advice. ' . There Is an awful spirit of vengeance In his heart, and should he ever come ' face to fai with the murderers of hla brother Frank some one would lie col3 and stiff upon the grounds riddled by bullets. . By trade Charles Ferrell is a blacksmith but for some time past he fVhas been a member of the police force in wno, .Ner. am an omcer be nas the reputation ;of being brave ahd cool In the face of danger, and prepared at, all times to try conclusions with the des peradoes and bad characters that Infest Jteno and made it a headquraters. 'U have very little money to spare." said Ferrell, "but I am willing to add $100 4.0 the reward offered by Governor Geer. X don't care who Is with me at the time, but If I can only have the privilege pa shooting Tracy those with me can have ail of ray share of the reward. -If some one shall be fortunate enough to get those murderers I will consider the 10f I offer as the beat In vested money ever had.' It be given with thankfulness. Frank and I were greatly attached to leach other, as -we were the two youngest members of the family and I taught him all he knew in athletics. He soon ' became a master himself, however and : used' to take delight int.showing me how he had progressed. Frank iwas fearless. Yes. those convicts had to kill him before they could have gotten away. , . "It Is awful to thing of bis being killed. I Intend to hunt down his mur derers as long as there Is a possible chance of getting them, and I will never abandon the hope . of finding them.:' (. ' There is what appears to be a psy chological phase of-this case in which Charles Ferrell supplies the facta. From his -own statements he had a pre monition of danger for two hours pre vious to his brother's murder at 'Salem; In Reno Ferrell's duty was .to patrdl the town at night. At 5 a, m-June 9, when he had just arrested a man . who wanted to clean out the town, he suddenly- became depressed In spirit and exceedingly nervous., i .When he' went home and to bed at O'clock it was Impossible for. him to go; to sleep as usual, fills' wife remarked it, and asked what ailed him.' He replied that he did not kaow, but that he feared that some trouble was about to happen. Shortly after 7 o'clock Frank Ferrell, was murdered about 7:10 Charles Fer rell, while tossing upon, his bed,- was surprised to see a vision of his mother. No matter In "what direction he turned his face, -nor even when he closed his eyes and burled his head in the pillows, he could see his aged mother weeping bitterly. He told his Nife of this. whereupon aha tried to calm him by saying that good news was probably coming. .: f'."-: -t :: . . N- : Not long afterward1 a" telegram came stating that there had been an out-? break at the Oregon Penitentiary and that Frank Ferrell had been killed. "The news did not surprise me a bit, said-. Ferrell. relating his experience "I was positive that something fearful had occurred Before the telegram was opened I knew what it contained." ,. Accompanied by his wife. Policeman Ferrell boarded the flrst train for 6a Jem. but arrived too late to. attend the fuherat. Fired with a memory of the horrible fate of. his cherished brother. Charlesproceeded at once to Wood burn and caught up. with the posse at Graves randv last; week. . .---' : ; Armed with a rifle he took to the trail and remained on it until it was abandoned for the time being at Bar- J low last Friday night. As soon as the information was teceived at Salem that Tracy arid Merrill had appeared near Vancouver. Ferrell caught the nrst train and was hot on the trail of .the murderers Monday morning, and has followed It ever since, hoping every in stant tocome In contact with Tracy. If rhe men meet. Tracy will probably die suddenly. ... i FROM POLK COUNTY How Young Mr. Byers Re covered Hearing; (Salem Journal) -Mr. A. J. Byars. of Independence, ac companied : by' his ' wn, a A. a.

Assuming that the Hanna hoorn will not prove fnrmldAble and that iOur Teddy" .Will be the. candidate again, the question naturally arises. Who win nave sec ond place on .the ticket? And It may t mrki that the fashion of re garding the office -of Vice President a an empty honor and ,tne stepping tone to a pollUcat grave, has under gone a change. , The lat man to acorn the office for that reason, was Senator rh.rtM V. rirbanksi of .Indiana. If h had held up his anger at the Phila delphia convention he could have-been PhMM Vice-President.! andtoday would ha vm been In the White House. But Ws respect for a tradition caused him to spurn the Vice-Presieency ana, as it has turned- out. to lose his one and only chance for the lrealdency.

But- it can be stated most em phatically that the matter haa not gone beyond the stage of tentative sugges tion. Roosevelt does not care to com mit himself so early on so Important a question. It Is more likely that Roose velt will want a running mate who will bring him strength in a state where he needs It more .than he thinks he does In Minnesota. If, for Instance. Indiana should appear wobbly he might per suade Beveridge to accept the Vice presidential nomination, with the idea of being in line . for the Pret-identlal nomination In 1908. , - t . . Another Idea which appeals to Roose velt Is to secure for his running mate some strong man from the Pacific Coast. . ,-'" 5' SALEM GIRLW PORTLAND TAKEN IN CHARGE BY POLICE ON v ARRIVAL.
