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.

"Walbrldge has announced his can didacy for the Republican nomlna- tlon for governor. THE COttORESSMANSHIlN The Salem Statesman makes a mis take In Us warfare on Geer and Her mann. Gccr hits foeon loyal too loyal for his own goid to the machlno whence the Statesman derives Its sus tenance. But Mr. Geer Is gentleman 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 chances on his record and on his views; but ho Is a talented man and it Is an honor to tho party, to have such ti man In It. nc has never made money out of the party. HeVis not an unprin cipled hireling Hessian. I To Isnclcuu, honorable party man. We do not know how any party could get along without soino men In It with more brains than a mosquito, or how it can got along without giving such. men offices onco In a wiille. The Statesman's1 abuse of Hermann is all dictated by tho old Portland ring. Ho is in u position where ho Is worth millions to the state of Oregon. Ojngrc&s Is no longer a deliberate body. fey 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 coast couferco on the river nnd har bor bill, and will bo worth millions to Oregon river and harbor Improve ments. Why shouicTtho old ring and machine orgnns llko the Orcgonlan, 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. Tho Orcgonlan and Statesman are carrying their fight too far In abusing men like nermann and.Gcerand read ing them out of the party, RELIEF IS PERMITTED Turks Permit Miss Barton to Assist the ArmenianSi GEN, GOMEZ A CONSUMPTIVE Tho Cuban General Cannot Llvo Sixty Days, Keller Permitted.

After fighting over a woman's complexion for 14 months, tho Chicago Woman's club has eliminated the color lino nnd elected Mrs. Fannlo Barrier Williams, a well-known colored woman, to full membership nt a'n executive session of the club.
