There Axe Still Others and It Is the
Opinion of the Authorities That the
Only Solntion of the Problem Is ; to
Commit All to the Asylum, Where
They May Be Watched.
(From Saturday's .Daily.)
Two more of the famous band of
"Holy Boilers" were yeserday after
noon brought to Salem from Corvallis
by Sheriff M. P. Burnett, of Benton
county, and taken to the asylum, hav
ing been committed to that institution
by the county court of Benton county,
as being dangerous to the "peace and
good morals of the community. Those
brought were- Bose Seeley, aged 28
years, a servant girl by occupation, "of
good habits and born in Alsea, and
Attio Bray, aged 22 years, also a ser
vant girl, of good habits, and born in
Lincoln county.
There are now six members of this
particular sect in the insane asylum,
all having been committed from Cor
vallis, and air Of good habits, with no
charge against them except , on aceount
of their outlandish method of worship.
They are Ftank Hurt and Mrs. Millie
Hurt, aged 115 yeari; Mis Sophia IIarl:
ley, aged, 20 years, a daughter of .a re
spectable and well-to-do family of Cor
vallis, and Mrs. Maud Creffield, aged
23 years, who was enticed from her
home and induced to marry the apostle
Creffield, originator of the sect.
There are yet several who espoused
the faith who are still at large or eon
fined in other cities, and it seems to
be tbe opinion of those who have come
in eontaet -with them that the Only
way of breaking up" the movement,
which threatened to undermine a cer
tain element in society, is to send them
to the asylum, where they may be
looked after ..and- prevented from
spreading their abominable doctrines
and exerting1 svfeypnotie, influence over
others. It is admitted by all that tbey

OREGON CITY, May 6. That a pro
curess of girls for immoral purposes
has! been plying her nefarious business
in this city has just come to light, and
the woman who was, beyond f doubt,
guilty of acting as such an agent, today
disappeared. The woman has been mas

working in the city for several weeks.
She established her office on Main street ',
next door to the Boyal restaurant, and !
since her advent has done a good ae&i
of business in her pretended vocation.
The statement havine been made to
Mayor Dimick that the business of the
woman here waa to proenre gins, ne
ordered the chief of police to collect
$3 a day license from her, with the idea
of driving her out of town. This was
succeesful, and she left, but she could
have easily been arrested and held on
the charge of procuring. The authori
ties probably hesitated for lack of di
rect evidence in the matter, but to a
man' who was beat on exposing the
scheme, she admitted ' yesterday that
she sexpeeted to take several girls out
of town with her for immoral purposes.
