OF HANDLING PROBE Attorney-General Should Have Finished Up His Job, West Believes. A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR Governor West Will Send His Own Man to Coos Bay to- Make Thor ough Investigation. Attornoy General Crawford has filed his report on the matter of the dopor- tation of Dr. Leach from Coos Bay, and on other mattors connected there with, and it seems that this is not highly satisfactory to the governor, who has an idea the attorney general should have either commenced proceed ings or have found that no violation of tho law had taken place. The governor is determined tho mat ter shall bo probed to the bottom and that all violators of the law whether W. W.s. or others, shall bo punished. Ho will send a special prosecutor to Coos Bay to take charge of the investi gation and to prosecute if the condi tions warrant it. The governor this morning gave out the following statement: Hits Crawford Hard. "As well stated by a morning paper, 'The public gets from Attornoy General Crawford's official inquiry into the Coos county outrage a philisophical treatise on the relations of capital and labor.' "Upon being so requested by this office it was the duty of the attornoy general to present the charges brought to his attention to the circuit court of Coos county, that tho matter might be promptly heard as provided by law the attorney general appearing for the governor. It appoars, howover, that the attorney genoral took it upon himself to make a personal investigation of tho situation. It does not appear frofn the testimony taken that either the sheriff or any of those citizens charged with being connected with the mob were questioned, nor doos there appear anything in the testimony taken to sup port tho attorney genoral 's contention that spikes were driven into saw logs, that logging roads and rails were fre quently oiled for the purpose of render ing them dangerous, or that the deport od parties had anything to do with such outrages, if perpetrated. "If the charges of Attorney General Crawford, in this direction are true, it shows that there has boon a lack of law enforcement in Coos county. "If tho I. W. Ws. wore permitted to interfere with logitimato business by inciting riot or damaging privato prop erty, thcro was a lack of law enforce ment in Coos county. "If Dr. Bailey K. Leach printed libelous articles in his paper or insulted tho flag, there was a lack of law en forcement in Coos county. "If certain citizens were deported from Marshficld or Bandon by an or iroiiized mob, it proves conclusively that there was a lack of law enforcement in Coos county.
