James Hicks and brldq arrived
home last Wcdnesduy. Mr,
Hicks was married in Bend on
Monday, Oct, 14th, to Mips Ida
Barker of Saoramcnto, Ho will
at onco begin tho erection of a
home on an acerago tract he has
recently purchased from Hagoy
& Byrd in east Burns. Mr.
Hicks has been a resident of this
city for sovoral years and is as
sociated with M. H. 'Bronton in
tho Star saloon. Tho Times-Herald
joins many friends in extend-
Voters to Consider.
At tho timo the authorities
wero wanting "Tex" Byrd, who
had forfeited his bond to the Cir
cuit Court, whero ho had been
indicted on a charge of horse
stealing, I wasatAlvaSpri ger'a
one night when it was being dis
cussed. I remarked that I didn't
think they wanted "Tex" very
bad or they would get him. This
conversation was repeated to
Sheriff Richardson who at once
called mo up on tho 'phono nt my
homo at Waverly and asked what
information I had. I told him 1
would bo up in a day or two.
When I came up I told him I be
lieved I could get track of "Tex"
Byrd for him and Mr. Richard
son stated that thoy wanted him
bad, as Sidney Comegys was
one of his bondsmen and if he
was not captured he (Comegys)
would likely have to pay the bond
of $1200. JIo further stated that
there was a reward of $200 for
tho capture of "Tex" and thnt
Comegys would make it right
with me if I gnvc the clew that
would result in his capture. I
went to tho railroad later and on
my return homo I found just
what I wanted. My team was
tired after tho long drivo to the
road but I found the 'phono out
of order nnd at once hitched up
nnd came to Burns with the in
formation I had secured, I told
Sheriff Richardson and his depu
ty, Byron Terrill, what I had.
I camo down to tho street nnd
found Mr. Comegys nnd he in
formed me thnt if I could furnish
information or any insight thnt
would bo tho means of capturing
Byrd ho would sell mo hay so
cheap that I would think I was
getting it for nearly nothing.
Later Sheriff Richardson got his
man nnd tho first timo I saw
Comegys after that I spoke of
his capture and Mr. Comegys ad
mitted that it was my informa
tion that led to tho capture. I
asked him about tho hay and he
said he had sold his hay to James
Paul and wnnted to know if mon
ey would do ns well. Comegys
said Mr. Richardson had not
charged him anything only the
expenses for going after Byrd
and asked me what I had been out,
I told him of tho trip to Burns
whiuh had taken three days with
a tired freight team and he ask
ed mo if $1G would satisfy me.
I told him it would. Later I
wrote him two letters about the
money but Comegys ignored
them. I had to go to Narrows
after bacon and lard and while
there I went to the saloon nccord
ing to instructions from Sheriff
Richardson to see Comegys. He
went into a back room and I
finally went to the door and ask
ed if I could sec him. He came
out and commenced to abuse me,
calling me all manner of vile
names and kept it up ns long nshe
could see mo ns I went back'to
tho hotel. I saved him the $200
reward offered for the capture of
"Tex" Byrd and also the $1200
bond money yet ho has refused
to even pay mo expences to Burns
and return home.
Theso facts can be verified by
Sheriff Richardson and his dc.
puty, Byron Ternil,
I, D. A. Brakeman, being
first duly sworn, on my oath do
say the above is correct and will
swear to it in any court.
