Nhawuee Warehouse Manager is
Now on Trial.
Kvidence That liar ley Was Bought
From Clifford and Shipped
Out By Kail
About an hour before the opening of
his trial Tuesday morning for the em
ht/.zlement of J. D. Kvane' barley, \V. 11.
Clifford made a desperate attempt to
< scape, but wan overhauled and recapt
ured by Sheriff Canutt, after a race of
over half a mile. Two barn of a j >» i l
corridor window had been sawed off,
Clifford says during the night, by par
ties outside. When Jailer Curry took
the chain gang oat Clifford and James
and Dan McDonald were let out of the
cage to the corridor. They removed the
■awed barn and Clifford and Dan Mc-
Donald went out through the hole.
Sheriff Canutt was at breakfast when his
young h>ii rasbed in and told him of the
break. The sheriff gained the street
jiiHt in time to see Clifford go around
the grist mill a quarter of a mile away.
Me pursued and ran the fugitive pant
the old depot and to the crossing of the
river on the fair grouuds road. When
within LSO yards tl.e sheriff began
shooting on the run. The tirst bullet
kicked up the dirt between Clifford** feet
and he went into the air like an antel
ope. The second s ing past his leg ail
the third so clone to the side of his head
that it staggered him. This was too
much. Clifford said later that he ex
pected the next through him and his
lieart stopped beating. He could not
make another jump and gave up, When
asked why he attempted escape Clifford
told the sheriff he would not have done
so had they not brought Kidd'e, one of
the witnesses against him, here.
Dan McDonald got clear while the
sheriff was after Clifford, and there is
evidence that he caught the passenger
train just then pulling out for Spokane.
He was in tor burglary.
There is much reason to believe that
the bars were cut from tlie outside.
Hard Fight IJein-j Made By the
Lawyers On Both Srdes
VV. 11. Clifford's trial for embezzlement
of two car loads of barley from the
Shawnee warehouse, belonging to J. 1).
Evans, went to trial Wednesday morn
ing. A jury composed of Henry Miller,
.Joe Ficklin, (ieo. Gabbert, Ernest Becker,
E. 11. Kirkland, Lafayette Cain,,l. 11.
Bloom, Alex. Brown, John Brink, C. 11.
Cornell, I). A. Grim and Fred Bohle, was
empanelled Tuesday.
E. K. Hanna is defending Clifford and
M. O. Reed is special prosecutor, em
ployed by the warehouse people. Every
inch of ground is being stubbornly
fought by the two lawyers. •
The prosecution introduced evidence
to show this was the only barley in the
house. P. C. Maguire, agent, and Con
ductor Cameron testified to its ship
ment; Chun. De France said he bought
two cars of barley from Clifford and paid
him for it, and that he sold it to Kiddle
Bros, of Island City, (>regon—that is,
that R. It. Rupert really did the selling,'
but he performed the necessary clerical
work. Fred Kiddle says Ijr bought it.
This was the only barley shipped from
the station this season. There were
many other witnesses,but these were the
only ones directly connecting the s;i!e
and shipment.
Clifford was oo the stand Thursday
afternoon and made the statement that
he did sell Mr. IK> France two cars of
feed barley, but that it was barley,wheat
and oats mixed and was the overplus of
the warehouse for the seasons of 1898
and IM>!> and not the Evans barley,
though it was claimed 800 or more sacks
of this are missing.
There are other cases of wheat em
bezzlement against Clifford when this ie
completed, which will be tried by .ludtre

of the Congregational church in 1890,
and the latter waein the Hall-Burgunder

company has toured the European con

before more notables and received
more favorable press criticisms than any
other like organization. The company

Democrats Artfully Angle for
the Populist Vote.
Proposition Now to Hold Joint
Primaries-A Bait With a
Hook In It.
The proposition advanced by the
democrats at their central committee
meeting Tuesday, that the populists
surrender and line up under the demo
cratic flaer of anti-everything, was emi
nently satisfactory to the hungry demo
crats. But the "country has been heard
from."' Populists of the rank and tile
say the assertion of Secretary MacKen
zie that their body of the party is will
ing and ready to join the democracy,
while the leaders and office seekers are
opposed to the move, is the most ab
surd political statement made since the
dog days. They assert that few besides
office seekers are mixed up in the pro
poned deal, whereby the populist party
would lose it identity and be engulfed in
the black, clinging mud of the demo
cratic morass. If buried they must be,
they object to burial without honor.
They are willing to die on the gory tield
of politics, with ballots in their hands;
but enter solemn protest against being
bound and carted off to the democratic
potter's tield, "unwept uuhonored and
Delivery to the Spoiler.
Judge McDonald still holds the whip
hand over a large and certain element of
the populist party, and has been heard
to say since the democratic meeting:
"As a populist, I cannot afford to join
the democratic ranks. I am impressed
with a conviction that the democracy
national, state and county—are engaged
in a gigantic conspiracy to lasso the en
tire reform elemeat of the populist party
and deliver it, bound and gagged, to
the spoiler—the Cleveland democracy.
Haven't you noticed that nearly every
one of the democratic leaders who in the
last presidential campaign opposed
Bryan are setting up no end of a howl
for him? I believe they feel confident he
will be defeated this fall, and that
Bryanism, as a party idea, will have re
ceived its death blow, They then expect
to turn the party over to the old Cleve
land machine—taking and holding the
honest reformers who have followed
Bryanism into the last ditch."
Opinions of Others
Other members of the populist party
point out that, viewed as parties with
possible futures, populism still has life
and a mission, especially in Whitman
county, while democracy is as dead as
the proverbial duck, and the only hope
its devotees have of its resurrection lies
in its absorption—for convenience—of
populistic ideas and principles sufficient
ly to enable it to hoodwink and swallow
the populist voting strength. These
populists realize that they may be be
trayed and flung into the open mouth of
the democratic octopus; but they swear
by all that is good in populism that
they will never digest, andthat there will
bo a turmoil in the democratic maw
which will turn the party pale.
In Whitman county, for instance, they
point out that in the 1898 election,wl ie
the republicans had about 2100 votes,
the populists carried from 1600 to 1700
and the democrats but 700 to 800. This
was of a total vote of 4500. It is known
there were nearly 0000 voters in the
county, and of the 1500 who did not
vote the populists claim more than half,
and give the republicans credit for 500
non-voting citizens. On this basis, the
republicans would have 2500, the popu
iists the same and the democrats not
more than 1000.
Theee populists believe their party's
nominees can be elected if the factional
differences can be settled and a ticket
named of fairly honest and competent
men. Hut they say that, if the party
leaders jield to the lust and blandis
m >nts of weak and decayed democracy,
and walk into the web now spread for
them, fully 40 per cent of the party
membership will kick over the traces,
and will either stay at home or rote the
republican ticket. * This would leave but
about 1500 populist supporters of the
fusion ticket and 1000 democratic sup
porters, if they all voted it—not enough
to secure success.
Brilliant Democratic Scheme.
Some brilliant democratic schemer,
who probably wants to be either judge
or sheriff, hatched out one of the bright
est little tricks heard of in "reform"
circles for some time and sprung it
Wednesday among 4he faithful, who are
now working it for all c is worth. Both
populists and democrats are to hold
nominating conventions May 17. The
populists are to name three candidates
for each office, and the triple ticket thus
selected is to be referred back to the
party members, to be voted on at a
primary election to be held on a date
then to be named—the final nominating
convention to|meet"later,canvass the re
turns of this primary election and ratify
the nominations thus made.
The new democratic scheme is to fol
low the same plan, except that they are
to nominate but one man for each office.
These democratic nominees are to be
wedged in with the three populist nomi
nees and all for each office "voted upon
by the combined populist and demo
cratic forces at a fusion primary.
As a political stroke, this is a scintil
lator. The plan carried out would give
the democrats command of the situa
tion, as all populists readily see. There
would be four candidates for each office
before this hybrid primary—three popu
lists and one democrat. The populist
vote would naturally be divided among
their three candidates, while the demo
crats could step in and concentrate their
entire strength on the democratic names,
thus easily carrying the primaries and
shutting the populists out in the first
But this is not the democratic inten-!
tion, except so far as it applies to the !
judge and sheriff. They seem to be will- j
ing to barter their political souls for
these two offices, and if the populists !
accede to their plan, all democratic nor- j
inations, except for judge and sheriff, are
to be made with the idea that they are
named simply as a matter of form.
Populists who are.informed of this plan
lauuh at the idea that the populist con- '
vention will swallow a bait with a spring
hook concealed in it. Democracy is al
together :oi j.eierous.
Home democrats also recognize the
little scheme as a dangerous one, as its
very selfishness, if carried out, would
turn populist votes against the demo
cratic nominees.
Altogether, the fusion grafter* for of
fice are finding a hard road to travel.
Scheme after scheme is being devised
with which to land the populist fish on
the democratic bank, but the game is
wary, even when the bait is temptingly
smeared with annis oil.
Spokane Refuses to Be Swallowed
By the Octopus.
Spokane, April 21.—The populists of
Spokane county, to the number of about
thirty, met in convention here today and
selected Fred S. Merrill, of this city, na
tional delegate to Sioux Falls. It elected
fifty-four delegates to the state populist
nominating convention, and fixed June
14 as the date for their county conven
tion to nominate a county ticket.
A committee from the'county demo
cratic central committee, also in session
today, presented an invitation to the
populists to come over and consolidate
with them, but the offer was actually
spurned, every delegate but one casting
a decisive vote against allowing their
party to be swallowed up by the demo
crats. The democrats fixed on May 18
for their county convention to elect
delegates to the state convention, to be
held the day following.
No Democratic Dictation
Salem, Oregon, April 21.—The Marion
county populist central committee today
refused to approve the manner in which
the democratic convention nominated a
"citizens" ticket two weeks ago, and
broke a record by practically indorsing
W. W. Hall, the republican nominee for
county clerk. The sense of the commit
tee was that nothing short of a genuine
citizens movement will do, and that the
populists will not consent to democratic
But the Enjoyment Was at the Co6t
of the Manager.
Manager Lennox is to be congratu
lated upon the evening of pleasure af
forded Colfax opera lovers by the Louise
Brehany Ballad and Opera Concerts
Wednesday evening. The queen of the
evening was Miss Brehany, charming, re
freshing and debonaire, a most delight
ful singer, beautiful in form and feature.
She captured every heart with her un
affected grace before she sang a note.
The company is an excellent, cleverly
constructed, well balanced one.
Notwithstanding the excellence of the
attraction the evening's pleasure given
the people was at the expense of Mana
ger Lennox. Speaking of the loss, Mr.
Lennox said to The Gazette: "In order
to secure an attraction of this high
class, it is necessary to guarantee to the
company a specific sum. In this in
stance I personally guaranteed $200 in
order to afford the people an opportun
ity to enjoy high class work. This can
only be done on the subscription plan.
About 30 of those who subscribed for
tickets failed to live up to their agree
ments and caused a loss to the manage
ment. The total receipts were but $195,
while the guaranteed price for the com
pany alone was $200."
