After four mouths of the precarious,
fear-haunted life of fugitive, partly
spent ia a condition of vagabondage in
California, Red" Rupert is one wore
behind the bara of the Oregon penltea
tiary. He was brought in last night by
Special Agent William Each, after long
delay and irritatiug difficulty in secur
ing bis release from the federal agents
who held himat Brawley, California.
He had been through such a grilling
experience ia trying to avoid ti'toction
that he admitted he was actually glad
to be back in tSalem. Aside Trom the
loss of some flesh, however, he las not
suffered physically and has made good
wages in various lines of employment.
' His arrest by federal agents ia Cali
fornia was brought about through the
intercepting of a letter which he ven
tured to write to his wife, who prc.ious
to his escape from th prison gang had
writtea him she might go to Imperial
bench. However, he stated emphatical
ly that bis wife should be hold blamn
less in the matter.
Bupert tells what sounds like a
straight story, and in it he goves ths
laugh to the various rumors as to his
movements. According to this i.c broke
away from the quarry gang at Gold
Hill about six o'clock on the night of
March 16, and without any aid from
anyone pointed toward Culifornia with
Mexico as his ultimate objective. He
ran nearly all the way to Med fold in
the attemptto get all possible lead over
his trailers. At Med ford, along about
midnight he fell in with a cattle men
who was shipping a rsr south, proffered
his services as a "cow-puncher" on the
trip, and thus secured for himself thei
safest sort of transportation as far as
Gazelle. From there ho psid his way to
the vicinity of Sacramento, tramping
into the ctiy after nightfall in the guise
of an ordinary 'vag." The rolo was so
well played, in fact, that he cu.ie with
in an ace of being run in by an officer,
but put up a good bluff with the state
ment that he was looking for fa lodging,
which he hnd the money to pay for.
From Hacramento he made lu way by
easy stnges to the citrus belt near I.osj
Angeles, and within four days (ft'ter bin
breaknway at Gold Hill he wts picking i
oranges a vocation which he. followed!
for several weeks. Then ho secured I
work in the canteloupe fields at Braw- j
ley, always cherishing the plan of slip ;
ping across tho border into Mexico, it,
wus at Brawley that ho wrote a letter I
to his wife, whose whereahouts he did!
not know, but took a chance, of reaching
her at Imperial Beach. This Utter ell
into the hands of a federal officer who!
hud established himself in rooms ad
joining the cottage where Mrs. Kupert
was staying, and who held to tho tlieorv
that ltupert would sooner or later either
send a letter or try to meet iier there,
This letter led to his arrest, llo admit
ted that ho tried to bluff tho officers
with the mistaken identity dodge; ana
that he rerused to recogm.e the 1 ort
lund man, Kolicrt Kiugcr, but denied
the report that he attempted to break
jail at Brawley.
Now that ho is back in thu shadoMSs
of tho prison walls, Rupert assures the
officers that he will make no further
attempts to gain his liberty, but will
hike what is coining to him. In the
ordinary course of events ho .V'll have a
prolonged term in confinement, for in
addtiion to serving time under federal
prosecution for the theft of $li,000
worth of liberty bonds ho has the of
fenso of an attempted escape.
