THE S. P. TRAIN ROBBERS.
Convicted Under Pressure of n Big Re
ward. Glendnle, Or., Jan. 20. (Cor.) Tho
attention of tho residents of south
Douglas has centered upon tho-ieports
In the Oregoulau of tho trial of tho
State vs. Case and Peel for train rol
blng In tho canyon below this place on
July 1, 1895. As ono who does not
wish to clear tho guilty or convict tho
innocent, who can speak without
prejudice, we say that many points
along the line of evidence appeared to
us as remarkable.
"We noticed with pride and pleasure
tho grandeur of Justlco with which
Judge Bellcngc'r presided over the
case How carefully ho considered
every point, pro or con, that wus
brought before him. He weighed the
evidence with Inborn principle of hu
manity that Is dlvlno In Its attributes
and marks tho honored Judge who
considers It no light matter to deprive
it fellow of his liberty and condemn
him to a felon's cell for life.
With tho past lives of Peel and Cnso
wo have little to do. Tho point to bo
considered Is, were thoy at tho Bccnes
of tho holdup, and did they commit
tho crime for which ihey were
In the great Durrant case tho
whole II fo of tho accused had been
passed within the Bacred palo of n
pious home; and for yenrs ho had been
a regular attondant at Emanuel Bap
tist church, and was an officer In Its
Sabbnth school when ono of tho great
est crimes of tho century was dis
covered to lmvo been committed with
in Its enclosure. All of thoso facts
had no weight with Judgoor Jury.
Thoy nlono sought to establish tho
main, point, was Theodora Durrant
tho murderer of Miss Lamont and
On tho samo prlnclplo tho former
lives of Peel and Case should not
prevent tbem from receiving a Just
nnd Impartial trial.
Again wo noticed that some of tho
witnesses had forgotten (?) Mint It
rained In tho Cow Creek canyon dur
ing tho first days of July.
July 4 was a very rainy day at tl Is
place, and In factall through tho Cow
Parties who went from this placo to
hunt train robbers returned wet nnd
disappointed. Could Individual
tracks lmvo been located at that tlmo
near tho place of the hold up, which
was visited by hundreds of people ?
Wo think not becnuso tracks upon tho
green grass or upon the soft earth
would lmvo been washed away nnd
baon obliterated. Were nil thoso
zealous and Interested ones who were

fasten tho crime upon any ono In
order to securo tiio roward. ?
To u resident of tho southern por
tion of Douglns county, this cnso ap
peals with peculiar forcc.lt is no light
thing becuuho mon lire personally
your enemies, you could for a few
paltry dollars seek to deprive them of
