County Judge Frank L. TouVelle today rented the building formerly occupied by an abstract company directly across the street from the courthouse at Jacksonville in order that Sheriff Singler will have room to collect taxes. He has been using the circuit courtroom but the convening of the March term makes it necessary that the sheriff vacate his room.
Forced to crawl more than a mile with both bones of his left leg shattered and then shout for two hours before and reached him, was the harrowing experience of Charles Grey, a homesteader on Little Applegate, who is at the Sacred Heart Hospital for treatment.
Gray, who lives alone, was cutting trees about a mile from his cabin when one fell on him, crushing his left leg. He then started to crawl to his cabin which he reached after three hours of terrible suffering.
When his cabin was reached he began shouting for help. It was another two hours before his cries were heard. Dr. Conroy of this city was summoned by telephone and he brought Grey in to the hospital. They were forced to carry him on a litter two miles to reach the automobile.
A bogus check artist, who gave his name as Arthur Taylor, is wanted today, not only at Eugene, Roseburg and Ashland, but in this city as well. He was arrested yesterday evening at Dunsmuir, but succeeded in eluding the officers there and escaping.
Chief of Police Hittson was notified yesterday morning that the man was wanted at Eugene. He made an attempt to get him here, but found that he had left for Ashland. The Ashland police attempted to get him and found that he had left for the south.
About this Chief Hittson was notified that Taylor was wanted in Medford as he had issued bogus checks here. Dunsmuir was notified and Taylor arrested but in some manner got away from them.
In making a reservation out of Ashland, Taylor used Dr. F.S. Barber's name of this city.
