Each Took His Tarn.
Vlth the steel drill the five men probably
'"spoiled" each other In the work of drilling
out the rivets which held the Iron bars of
the cell. The five were In one cell, on the
second tier, and far enough away from the
Jail office so that there was little danger of
discovery unless some other prisoner should
have sounded an alarm.
Six rivets were drilled out from the In
side and one end of a flat cross bnr was
loosened from the side support. With this
end free the matter of kicking oft the bar
was easy, although the prisoners had to
break It sharp off at one end, and a short
perpendicular bar also was broken oft In a
similar manner.' This made a hole In the
Iron work about thirteen Inches long by
seven wide, and having a side extension,

low or walked around the gallery and down

office from the cell room. Here, on a cot,
Morris Bass, a United States prisoner, was
sleeping, and they seemingly could not
have gotten by him without brushing
against his cot, or at least awakening htm.
Pass says they did awaken him and that
one of the men slugged him, but Nick
Towers, sitting In the office a few feet
away, heard not the slightest sound of
anything wrong. Bass evidently Is under
suspicion by the sheriffs force as being In
the plot. Jailer Roach thinks he probably
was the tool of the persons on the outside,
without whose active aid the escape could
not have been effected. This Bass denies,
but he Is being put through a line of ques
tioning that may develop something later

Arriving at the point where Bass had his

havs been done without attracting atten
tion. On the other side of the little door was
a similar contrivance with a bull lock, the
staple of which Is generally pushed down
through the hasp. Everybody agrees that
this was the case Thursday evening. And
lislit here is the point where Jailer Roach
and Sheriff Power assort that the evidence
of outside collusion is most apparent.
There was no possible way for the prison
ers to reach It. nor could they have any
personal knowledge that the door was
not fastened on the kitchen side unless
some person had arranged to have It un
fastened and had so Informed the men or
had told someone on the inside who oould
give them the word.
Pass Through Kitchen.
There are two doors to the kitchen. Into
which the men passed by way of the cubby
hole, against which them axe generally
leaning several tin food trays. As these
were disturbed by the escaping men. it
hardly seems possible that their confeder
ate or confederates, were waiting for them
in the kitchen. They could easily have
been there, however, according to Mrs.
McPherson's story. She says the heavy
outside Iron door leading Into the kitchen
from the street was not locked, which Is
always' the case In the daytime, when the
inside wooden door stands open to let air
Into the kitchen.
As to the Inside door,- Mrs. McPherson
says that owing to the recent damp
weather it has swelled to such an extent
that It will not lock. If It was locked it
could easily have been opened from the
outside, since Its protecting door was

the inside, perhaps of neglect more than
anything else, which also look bad to me.
"At present I have no accusations to
make against anyone, but I propose to
have the most thorough Investigation that
Can be made into all the circumstances.
The rewards I have offered for the five
men ought to result In their capture, unless
there are people In this city ready and
willing to hide, feed and clothe these male
factors. If there are such, of course they
can lay hidden until later and thus quietly
get away from this section."
No trace of the escaped prisoners has
yet been secured.

Revolt In China and Ite
Rev. Charles A. Klllle of Pao Ting P"u,
province of Chi LI, Northern China, a mis
sionary of the Presbyterian church In
charge of a district comprising a population
of nearly 2,000,000, delivered an Illustrated
lecture at Westminster Presbyterian church
Dr. Klllle was In China during the Boxer
outbreak and was at Peking during the at
tack on the legations and missionaries by
the Chinese. His pictures, taken at the
time of the siege, are full of, thrilling Inter
est and of historic value. A great many of
them cannot be duplicated, and form a
photographic story of one of the most
thrilling, pathetic, dramatic and romantic
episodes of history.
The pictures showed the fortifications un
dertaken by the beleagured legations and
missionaries in Peking and the gallant de
fense made by themand the final rescue by
the International armies. Other nirtnr..
told of the destruction of missions and the
murder of missionaries and the awful priva
tions and persecutions the missionaries were
subjected to at the hands of the Boxers.
There were pictures, too, of the restored
missions, of the new cemeteries In which
the bodies of the murdered Christiana had
been assembled for decent sepulture, the
lowly homes of the native Christians all
through the province, groups of natlva
Christians and of American Christian work
ers who were still devoting their lives to
the great work of evangelising China.
Following the exhibition of the pictures
with the aid of a stereoptlcon. Dr. KIMle
showed and described a number of Chinese
curios, idols and weapons and ammunition,
Inclusive of a bullet that lodged in his pil
low, fired at him by a Boxer during the at
tack on the legations at Peking.
The lecture was very brief, most of the
time being taken up In describing the pic
tures. He said: "I have simply sought to
Interest you In the Importance of mission
work and the need that we have of your
help. The field Is a ripe one. The Chinese
are more willing within the oast three
years to accept the gospel of Christ than
ever before. It behooves us to seek to
Christianise them, else we will be con
fronted. Indeed, with the yellow peril."

At the age of 74, after serving the road
In one capacity and another since Its ad
vent, T. H. Goodman has resigned the
position of general passenger agent of the
Southern Pacific In California and laid
down the reins of active business. He en
ters upon the pension list of the Harrlman
system for the remainder of his days. Mr.
Ooodman Is one of the oldest and best
known passenger officials In the United
States. His name and that of the Southern
Paclflo have been associated so long ever
since the road was established that.
though he has been less aggressive of
late years, only because of his advancing
age, railroad affairs and men on the Pa
cific coast will require time to adjust them
selves to conditions without this veteran
mingling among them.
Just who Mr. Goodman's successor will
be Is not known at Union Pacific head
quarters, where the announcement of his
resignation was given out. It will not. It
is said, be a Union Pacific man.

ef the Oregon Short Line, with headquar

Washington hall. Not a very large audi

the prospects of the republican ticket this
fall. Everybody seems to have a lot of
confidence In the republican ticket.
Three candidates for the shrievalty-
Messrs McDonald, Donahoe and Hoye, In
the order called on were present. Donahoe
lent the only spice to the occasion by tak

candidates for county judge. Senator Ben

line of duty to be performed, and how
they proposed to perform It.

NARROW CALL FOR ONE MAN
Oeenpant of Bnagy Barely Escapes
Serious Accident In Collision
with Street Car.
Some man he dldnt stop to give his
name came very near not reaching his
home last evening In as good physical con
dition as he left earlier In the day. He was
driving a one horse buggy and his convey
ance was struck by a North Twenty-fourth
street car about 6:10 p. m. at the Inter
section of Sixteenth and Webster streets
with sufficient force to push the buggy
nearly over. The wheels, which were
rubber tired, scraped sldowlse on the street
until the tire of one slipped off and down
on the hub.
Blissfully Ignorant of the disarrangement
of his tire and, apparently of the narrow
escape he had undergone, the man con
tinued west on Webster. The curtains of
his buggy were drawn tight so he could
not be seen.
Passengers In the car held their breath
when they perceived the rig approaclng
the crossing. It looked as if certainly a
disastrous accident would ensue and It
would, but for the timely skill of the motor
man In Instantly reducing the speed of
his car uTitll, when It struck the buggy, It
was going very slowly. The motorman's
work was almost miraculous, as he had
but a few seconds In which to get his car
down from a good rate of speed.

Man Who First Gets Thirty

Lewis recently was arrested by Detectives
Mitchell and Davis while trying to sell a
valuable alligator grip. The grip is said to
have been stolen from the room of J. E.
Sellek, Twenty-fourth and Douglas streets.
Sellek Is administrator for the estate of fhe
late Police Judge Learn and the grip con
tained valuable papers pertaining to the
estate, which has not yet been settled up.
Lewis is charged with destroying alt the
papers in the rear of 1703 6t. Mary's avenue.
The police are holding for Identification a
valuable Century camera outfit, parts of
