Evidence Against Him Seems to Make
Xliis His Only Hopa of Belease
Befusos to " Talk Tor Publication
Until After He Sees an Attorney.
TUB DALLES ,Or., Feb. 12. "Pro
duce the women you are accused " of
laving murdered. That is the strong
est point you can make in your own
defense." ,
That advice was given this morning
Wasco county officers to Norman
Williams, who has arrived here in
custody of Sheriff Sexton, who brought
kirn from Bellingham, Wash., to - an
strer a charge of murdering: Alma' Nes
titt and her mother. -( .
It is the belief of all that unless he
produces those whose lives he is ac
euffl of having taken, nothing can
prerent his eonviction, as accumulated
evidence is strong against him.
Williams is very reticent and abso
lutely refuses to say anything, concern
ing the erime with which he is charged.
He fame to the entrance of the corridor
of the jail for a few" moments when
called upon by a newspaper reporter,
however, and peered with a close
serutiny through the bars when asked
toneeraing bis business with the local
land office when he was in The Dalles
three years ago. He inquired concern
ing the land officials whom he saw at
that tine.
'Why did you refuse to come from
Bellingham when you had signed an
agreement to come without extradition
proceedings 1" he was asked.
'I didn't refuse to eome! This is
the first I've heard of it," he. said in
He was asked how he came into pos
sesion of the relinquishment of Alma
'csbitt's homestead, for the forgery
of which he has been indicted by the
United States grand jury.
"I don't care to say anything about
that," was his answer, as he fidgeted
? nervously.
"You had a homestead adjoining
this woman's!" he was asked, when
he interrupted. '
"I will not say anything for publication,'-
and. began "to back away.
"The newspapers," he continued, as
lie lacked down the corridor, "convict
a man before he is ever brought to
It was then suggested that as one
: side of the case had teen published, he
woul I not prejudice himself by giving
his s'"le of the story, but he again in
terrupted: "I'll siy nothing. I want to see a
lawyer Brut."
With that he disappeared around
the i-Virner of the corridor, and refused
to lie seen further.
Williams was very nervous when he
was firt brought to. the court house,
l)Hiat'a which the county jail is situ
ated, lie ws very .confident over at
IMIingham, until he came to the train,
when his nerve 'seeinel' to forsake him.
He, however, came willingly. He -sent
for A. iS. Bennett, an attorney, on his j
arrival, but Judge P.onnett refused to
have anything to do with the ease. It
was in .fudge Bennett's family that
Alma Xcshitl wis employed for a time
as a domestic before she left, with her
nwthr for her homestead 'back of Hood
Kiver, in. 'Williams' company.

Chief of Police Gibson Is Conducting
Search Por HimFriends Pear He
Has Met With Poul PUy Was Pro
prietor of; the Willamette Transfer
Company, v
Fronv. Saturday 's Daily).
The sudden disappearance of "one of
the well known business men of Salem
has well nigh caused a sensation in
local circles. -
L. C. Beasoner, proprietor of the
Willamette Transfer Company, has not
been seen in Salem since Tuesday, Feb
ruary 1t and where he went, why he
disappeared, or how, is a mystery
which has so far baffled all efforts at
finding a clue. Beasoner has been
boarding at the Leonard Hotel, and
took Mis last meal there, at noon on the
day he disappeared. His friends a!
first treated the matter as a joke, but
have later "become concerned, over his
strange disappearance, and now fear
he has met with foul play.
Mrs. Beasoner, step-mother of the
lost man, lives in the foot hills west of
Dallas, and it was thought he might
have gone there for a visit, as he some
times does, but never before without
making known his intentions to friends
or employes, but on. investigation if
was found that he had not been seen
at the Beasoner home.
The men driving his hacks and drays
know nothing of him, but have simply
continued, the business in the hope
that he will appear again. Yesterday
Chief of police Gibson took the matter
up and began a quiet investigation,
but so far lias been unable to get the
slightest clue on which to work.
He is known to have been carrying
$200 on his person, although whether
or not lie had the money with him at
tho time Of his disappearance, is not
known, and on this account some peo
ple say they firmly believe he has been
made away with for his money, and
only the remains will ever be found
hidden in some "out of the way place or
lie may have simply taken the no
tion of going off for a short trip, with
out informing &ny "one, knowing , that
his business would co on just the
game, but lie is not accustomed . to
keeping secrets from his friends, and
never before acted in such a peculiar
manner. At first his absence was not
thought -mlich of, because he did not
drive a team himself, but devoted his
time to collecting, and looking for.
business, hence he is sometimes not
seen for a day or two by the drivers.

Another Appointment Made to Pill
Vacancy in Election I Board in
Brooks Precinct Bo ad ? Supervisors
Named and Other Business Disposed
of Claims Allowed. ;
; (From Saturday's Daily.)
The Marion county commissioners'
court completed its labors yesterday
and adjourned for the , term. The
docket was the lightest for many
months and contained 'but! very little
business aside from the bills against
the county, and of these. there was an
unusually small number. ;
Another vacaney in the election board
was reported to the court, which was
filled by a new appointment yesterday.
F.-J. Bolter had been appointed as one
of the judges of election in Brooks pre
einct, but it being found that he is not
now. a residept of that precinct, the
court named J. F. Moisan to fill the
F, E. Osborne and F. B. Du Bette
were appointed supervisors in road
districts Nos. 4 and 6, respectively,
and O. C. ' Whitney was appointed fn
road district No. 3, Dolph Criswell, the
original appointee, having failed to
qualify. C. Whitlock asked to be ex?
cused from serving as supervisor in
district No. 11, but no other appoint
ment was made, the matter being con
tinned until the next regular term of
The petition of Iehabod and Ernest
Barrager for the location of a counfv
road a few miles southeast of Salem,
was dismissed, as it was found that it
would be necessary to build several
bridges if the road was established.
The court did not feel disposed to in
cur this expense since the road would
not have been a special convenience to
the general public, but would have
been used mostly for private purposes
by the petitioners.
NThe county surveyor was instructed
to survey and relocate the old line of
the county road leading from tET
Brooks and Howell Prairie road to the
Salem and Sflverton road. This ac
tion was taken pursuant to information
received by the court to the effect that
certain parties had built fences in the
road, leaving but a narrow lane for
vehicles to pass through. The surveyor
is to report upon the matter at the
next term of court.
The petition of J. U. Miller and
others for the location of a county
road near Mt. Angel was continued. "
The matter of changing the boundary
lines of school districts Nos. 11, 58, 61,
and 79, and the petitions of W. V. Hor
ner and others, and E. Ball and others
for the creating of new school districts
were also continued.
Bids were received and opened for
the painting of guide boards" fo be
placed at the intersections of county
roads. The bids received were as fol
lows: Julius Nelson, 15 cents per
name; .1. K. Cutsforth, 20 cents, and
W.'B. Warner, 30 cents. The bid of
Julius Nelson was accepted.
The claims audited by the court
during tho three ' days' session, and
the amounts allowed ' upon the 'same
were as follows:

Prune Orchard Sold
M. P. Baldwia yesterday completed
the details of a transaction whereby
he transferred his 20 acre prune or
chard in thf Rosedale district, to
Messrs. Crozier and Pemberton, two,
gentlemen from Iowa, who have de
cided to cast their lot ia balmy Oregon.
The price received by Mr. Baldwin was
$2500. He bought the piece less than a
year ago for $1850, and noW has a crop
of prunes on band which will clear him
at least $400 over the cost of raising,
hence the transaction was quite profit
able for him, and . yet the gentlemen
have made a good buy, as the adjoin
ing orchards cannot be bought for a
much higher price, and the pieee will
pay a high rate of interest on the in
vestment. Mr. Crozier arrived in the
city about one week ago and Mr. Pem
berton is expected by March L

P. A. Shipley swore- out a complaint,
charging the; man with insanity,
he was cgain taken into custody by
Sheriff Colbath. Later he was taken
before Justice of the Peace Ilorgan,
where he was examined by Dr. W. H,
Byrd, and upon the physician's affida
vit was adjudged insane and ordered

Y. M. C. A. field by a score of 27 to II,

en into consideration that they went
down to play the ; game with . a very
weak line-up, several of the best men
on the team Wing; laid up lor repairs
and did not take part in the game. The
game was a good one, notwithstanding
the great difference in the score and
was greatly appreciated by the large
crowd of sKHtatorS which witnessed it.
Of the Salem seore two ficbl goals
were thrown by Fechter and seven foul
by; Allen, while for the Portland 'team
six'tkaskets were thrownvfrom the field
by Thornton, three; by Markie and nine
baskets were thrown from the foul line.
