- Tli History of Egbert's Crime.
Harry Egbert, alias Jack Frost, cx
ronvict, burglar and murderer, was
hanged for one of the bloodiest crimes
ever committed in this state the kill
ing of John G.' Saxton, a well known
attorney of Burns, Or., and for the
time being a deputy sheriff; and Sax
ton's companion, John West, ; in the
Wild Horse; Valley, QetobeJ 4, 1903.
Wild "Horse Valley is an 'isolated plaee
in Southeastern Oregon, about -125
miles south of Burns. - Saxton i and
West had been pursuing .Egbert for
several days to arrest him for a buj
glary committed in Douglas county,
Oregon, when they .came upon him at
Field's ranch.. A.sjlhey went up to the ;
house Egbert commenced shooting and,
mortally wounded West at almost the
first fire. Saxton ran inside the house;
and he and. Egbert exchanged a fusi- ,
lade of shots through a partition be-j
tween the two. .rooms. - This was un-j
productive of result and Saxton went
, outside the house. In -response to cries j
from West, .who was still alive, Saxton ,

' himself shot . down. Egbert escaped
through Nevada to Borkland, Idaho,
where he was capturwl three weeks
later. He was. brought back to Burns,

tion with all things mortal and paid
the extreme penalty for the cold-blooded
and dastanlly crime of which! he
was guilty and convicted, the murder
of Deputy Sheriff John G. Saxton, and
incidentally, for the murder of one
John' West,-and at one and the same
tne,near Burns. Harney county, Or
egon, on October 4, 1903. Every detail
of the execution and the law were car
ried out to the letter and, considering
that it was the first incident of the
kind ths officials of the penitentiary
ever took a party and the surrounding
conditions, it may be said that every
thing passes off as -easily, smoothly and
expeditiously as possible. At 12:51:53,
or 9:18 minutes after the trap was
sprung, he was pronounced dead. ; j
-' The execution was witnessed by in
the neighborhood of 75 people and it
is safe to say that not one present but
will say that it could not have been
- done more quickly, easily and humane
ly. ; . J'
Although the event was scheduled ' to
transpire at exactly. 12:30, aecording'to
the program -which had. been arranged,
there was a slight delay at the start
on account of the prisoners having
com in "late "from their work ;in the
'shops, as it ' was desired to have all of
the prynoners locked up when, it took
place. : - Alt -of the prisoners were in
their cells and securely locked at half
Kst twelve and Superintendent James,
. imediately,. accompanied by Warden
Curtis aad. Deputy Warden i Smith,
' went np to .Egbert's cell and informed
him that ..he had the death warrant in
s " Mssession. Egbert waived " the
rea-lisr of the warrant and the war-
dens stepped up aad unlocked the cell
door. Egbert stepped bravely out and
took his place behind Bev. St- Pierre
and Superintendent James, followed by
, tbe two wardens.
When they arrived at the chapel, of
-the prison Egbert' was smoking a cig
arette vigorously and doing his ntsiost
to control bimseli, Jixl as" the two war-
vtens each took bold of aa arm, and
four guards from the shops, Stapleton,
. Hir.. Ben gen and Boss fell in behind,
with Superintendent James and Bev.
St. Pierre ia the lead of the proces
sion started on its way to the gallows,
it was plainly seen that Egbert was
very nervous and walked . unsteadily.
He fixel his eyes' straight ia front f
him, however, and did not hesitate i a
his march to his doom. . . . : .
. Once inside of the death chamber he
riimbed the stairwav with a more
noose was in its proper place all stej
ped back, and, as Bev. St. Pierre ut
teretl the words "Goll be with you,"
Warden Curtis and Deputy; Warden
Smith, who had in the meantime taken
their respective positions at the trip
handles to the trap, grasped the two
handles simultaneously, gave them a
sharp jerk, both of 'them . being con
nected with the spring of, the trap to
insure its being tripped, and as quick
as a flash, tire body dropped through'
the trap, there was a sharp jerk mingl
ed with 'the sickening twang of the
rope, and all was over, for there was
no perceptible movement of the body
after the drop and it hung there as
limp and lifeless as though it ha$ been
there a week. There was about a six
foot drop and his neek was broken in
stantly. . 1 j : :w . ? i
Dr. J. D. Shaw, prison phyaieian,
and Dr. E. A. Pierce,' the- officiating
physicians, assisted by Dr. W. .A. Cns
ik, and others stepped upand exam
ined tbe body, waiting until the last
heart throb bad beaten and there was
absolutely no life in the body, and pro
nounced hint. dead just exactly 9 min
utes and 18 seconds after .the drop.
Egbert was an exceedingly vigorous
man and his heart continued to throb
for several moments after all trace of
pulsation .vanished. The Warden's
jury composed of M. .'.!. ' Hamilton,
J. E. Boberts, H. D." , , Pattoa,
Earl: Baee, , H. 'J O. Meyer,
James B. Linn, P. W, Dnrbm. J. A.
Simpson, Oscar Johnson, D.V. 'Vaughn,
V. II. Downine and A. A. Disque, ell
of Marion'ountv, then advanel and erx
a mined the ' body, pronouned .Egbert
dear, and gave their verdict to the ef
feet that he had bee a legally executed
This ceremony having beep concluded
Warden Curtis, with the assistance of
others, lowered the body into a" casket
plscel underneath, the rope was taken
down' io prevent it' being cut 'up for
souvenirs, the lid placet! upon the: box
and all was over--Egbert had paid tbe
extreme peaatty for his crime. . There
was not 'a single hitch in theprociee!
ings and all who" witnessed the, execu
tion were well pleased- in the matiacr
ia which it was done. " . ? .
From the unsteadiness of his gait
when he left the building for the scaf
fold it looked very much as though Eg
bert woul falter and weaken before
he climbed the .stairs to the scaffold,
but he seemed to, maintain his equan
imity until the last, or until tbe 'utter
ing of his last words upon the gallows.
There was a very notieeable weakness
or wavering of his voice when he made
his talk to the spectators and it would
have been' the next thing to impossible
for him to say many more words with
out breaking down completely.. As it
was it required a great effort upon his
part to control i himself, but be suc
ceeded in holuing up until all was over.
There was nothing spectacular about
the execution, whatever, as. everything
was carried on as smoothly and as de
liberately as if he were going to do
nothing more than deliver an address,
aad the sight was -not nearly so' grew
some as some supposed that it would
be. In fact everything was carried out
so quietly that it is safe to say that
half of those present did not fully re
alize what had really happened until
it was all over. Then it was too late.
as there was nothing left to observe
but the corpse of a man.
Egbert ' probably, died more easily
and painlessly than the majority of
those who have been executed in the
same manner, - for there waa not - the
slightest twitching or writhing of the
body after the drop, but notwithstand
ing the fact that the sight was not so
ennervating aa the. majority of those
who attended supposed it would be,
there was one young man present who
although he had bothered the prison
officials i continuously until he had ob
tained an invitation, swooned, away in
tbe midst of the proceedings, and had
to bo carried out by other members Of;
the party. The name of the young man
is not given, but it is enough to say
he is a student: of the medical class of j
the Willamette University, and it is
also needless to say. that in all prob
ability he will not be so anxious to see
another affair, of the kind..
.Notwithstanding .his resolution to
arise early, Egbert dropped off to deep
sleep aad slept soundly until 10:JU
o 'clock, when he was awakened by the
guard. He arose quickly .and cheer
fully, and state that he never ; reu
better in his life. , He was particular
in bis dress and ate the food that was
placed before him, which he had order
ed the night previously, and which con
sisted principally of a pint of cream
and a dish of canned pears.
At 11 o'clock be came down to the
barber 'a room and waa shaved. ' . His
nerves were steady, and . he" was " very
particular about the ' manner in which

PENDLETON, - Or, Jan. 29. The
Portland cattle buyers cn no longer
get cattle for from $2.25 to $3 per 100
pounds, live weightl This was the pre
vailing price early in the fall, and at
which time the. Portland buyers , came
in and bought up a large number of
beef cattle.
Yesterday;.' a car load of Butter
Creek cows was sold to a P-w-tlanTi -firm"
for $3J30 per 100 pounds, a But a: week
or so ago the quotations ,en this gadc
of beef were $2,451 The price of steers
has gone up to $4, 50 cents higher than
two weeks ago. ,
The reason for the adtaace is that
tho cattle raisers can well afford to
hold their cattle and have been hold
ing out against tbe market.
This has been one of the roost favor
able winters for the cattlemen that
has been known in the history of 1 life
eountfv. Last fall a 'err went np that
there was an extreme scarcity of; hay
and other feci throughout the entire
eastern portion of tho state. That, was
true, and prices for' ! f eed went to a
point out of the reach of the ordinary
matt. For a time it was -thought there
would be a large aumber of forced
sales, but everything seems to ; have
happened .ccontrary to expectations.
Not one of the stock raisers had to
feed, and their cattle lve: been kept
on pasture during the entire season. It
has been one of the most open seasons
in years. Springlike weather has pre
vailed with more moisture in the.
ground thantusual. Grasses have been
growing continually, anl tbe pasture
has been exceptionally goodj f
The stock is in good condition, and
the raisers of Eastern Oregon will be
in a position to demand and get their
own prices; wnea the spring ; trade
comes. The , seanun of 1903 and 1904
will be one of tbe most prosperous for
the livestock men that thfy have ex
perienced in therhistory of the coun-
