After Murderer Brown.
RosEiiurta, Jan. 24. Yesterday
morning two suspicious looking men
were seen near tho 19-nillc house on
the old Coos bay stage road. As soon
as they were observed one of them,
who was carrying a rltle and a bundle
on his shoulder, Jumped down the. low
grado and disappeared In tho timber.
Tho othor came to the house, ate
breakfast and bought a lunch to carry
with him. He answered the descrip
tion of Andy Fool, brother .of Jim
Peel, who was convicted of robbing
tho train at Cow Creek Canyon July
last. Andy, It was thought, was
hclplug Murder Sam G. Drown, who
escaped from tho county -Jail Decem
ber 30, and has since been nt large.
District Attorney Brown, in working
on tho case this weok, discovered a
plan to take Brown to Coos county,
where his parents live, and had men
on the lookout.
Jim Laird, Jim Moss, and two oth
ers kept the man supposed to bo Peel
insight. He went slowly, presum
ably to allow his companion to keep
near him, as ho appeared much
fatigued when ficen in tho morning.
Peel would whistlo at intervals to
warn Brown, who remained under
cover of the timber, whenever any
one was in sight. At 11 o'clock last
night all reached a point near Dora,
In Coos county, 42 miles from ,Roso
burg. Laird and Moss made a detour
and hid in a barn. Brown and Peel
6oon appeared in company, and were
allowed to pass the barn. Then they
were ordered to throw up their hands.
Peel promptly did so, and is now un
der guard at Dora. Brown Jumped
over a fenee,and Moss tlrcd'twice.
Brown fell, but beforo his pursuers
reached him he disappeared in a thick
clump of brush, where he is now sup
posed to be, possibly wounded.
Albert Peel Arretted.
Roseduro, Or. Jan. 24. Albert
Peel recently acquitted by tho federal

of brains ahd Intelligence, and great
ability as a campaigner for the party.
He has not agreed with us on tho
money question. We did not agree
with his vote to repeal tho mortgage
tax law. But there Is no man wo
would go farther o help Into a public
position than MrGccr. Ho deserves
well of tho Ropilhllenu party. Llko
other Republicans, he has to take his

The 300 members, all representing a
multiplicity of interests can only
transact business under tho prcbcnt
rules by placing almost autocratic
power In tho hands of the speaker
and a fow committees. A new -member
from Oregon would bo lost llko a
needle in a hay stack. He would get
no chairmanship, no second place on
a committee and onto very few com
mittees. Hermann is the only Paclllu

Telegram and Statesman make war
on Hermann and belittle his influence
If they have nuy regard for tho Inter
ests of Oregon ?
The Republican party of Oregon Is
made up of men who have novcr yet
been dictated to successfully. They
have, when nrouscd to tho truo inter
est of the party nnd the people, tliuo
and again overthrown dictators and
can do It again. Wo do not mean to
nay that no man is good enough
to be a candidate against Hermann.
Wo bcllovo Marlon county has
ssvcral men who would in time make
a? good, or oven a better congressman
than 'Hermann. But tho way to get
them to the front Is not by abusing
nermann. The Journal will cordi
ally support any Republican who is a
fairly representative man of tho
people and fairly nominated, and wo
believe none other will bo put up.
Tho editor of The Jouhnal Is not a
candidate as Is represented by some
Salem papers. In the absence of an
active well-supported Marlon county
candidate It prefers Mr. Hermann In
the truo Interest of the party and tho
people. Ills ten years experience nnd
acquaintance with public men and
the departments at Washington
renders him nn almost Invaluable
man for the people of this state. Be
sides, he has broken away from ring
dictation nnd control and stands with
tho people.
A Salem correspondent of the Rose
burg Plalndealer replies to a Rose
burg correspondent of tho Orcgonlan
as follews:
"Republican" should kuow, If he
understands the situation, that tho
next congressman from this district
if he be a republican, will bo nomi
nated by a utilon of the elements thut
were In opposition last winter. And
the next senator if he be a republican
will be elected by those who supported
Mr. Dolph and thoso who opposed him.
In short, by those who can do what
"Republican" seems lncapablo of do
ingsink their past differences and
antagonisms for tho honor of tho
party and good of the state.

carrying their fight too far In abusing
