Invitation Sen t
To Visit Salem
Apparently under the influence, of a
strange hallucination that a number of
men are pursuing him to all parts of tho
world where he goes -a man giving tho
name of Jack Byan, age 42, was taken
into cuHtsdyat the Southern Pacific do
pot at nine o'clock Tuesday night, nud
was being held in the city jail Wed
nesday. On receipt of information that
stranger was loitering in the vicinity
of the depot and soemcd afraid that
someone would seo him, Officers Mof
fit. and BrunBon mounted a motorcycle
and hurried to make the arrest.
Chief :f Police Varney is puzzled by
the mim's story. He apparently is rat
ional, and clever, in any other subject.
Byan says that several years ago e
consented to pose as a character for
several men cnghged in writing a book.
The book, however, would novor - be
comnloted until Byan had suffered bod
ily --Injur? and had died. The author of.
the book,, the man sayB, is a tall fel
low with a black mustache, and who is
master of Hindu mystery and tho
Much of the book had boon written,
Ryan told police Wednesday, and jthe
timo had ccme when ho must suffer the
nameless torture prescribed by tho tall,
mustiuchod man, and die.
It was to escape this, Byan says, that
he fled from Portland to Oregon City
several days ago. The men who arc pur
suing him, ho says, discovered that he
was in Oregon City, and called at his
rooming house to see him. He crawled
undor the bed, according to his story,
and waited until they had left. Then
he came to Salem, only to discover that
tho men had followed him here in an
Police Inspector Swenncs, of Portland
who was visiting in Salom yesterday,
questioned tho man in his cell. Inspector
Hwennos, who has had lots of exper
ience with criminals, is equally puzzled.
Ho hinted that Byan might have been
implicated in a " job" with other crooks
and that hey were hunting him down
to slay him und insure his silence. But
Ryan denied this. When asked by In
spector flwcnneB if ho was a "lamp-
stcr" the fellow said no. Very tew
know the mcuning of the term "lamp-
stor", whieh means "convict" and the
man's' familiarity with prison vernacu
lar leads authorities hero to believe that
ho might have served "time" some
where. Chief Varney said that his men were
looking for tho "tall, mustnehed man"
and his t;soeiates.
An examination of the man's sani
ty, conducted by Ir. Roy D. Byrd in
the sheriff's office, resulted in his
committment to the state hospital.
