Walter Bowne and Otto Jeldness, the Medford ski enthusiasts, started on a wintry visit to Crater Lake lodge yesterday, expecting to spend the night at Prospect and go as far toward Union Creek today as James T. Grieve could take them by auto or team, and then ski to Union Creek where they would spend the night.

They expected to tramp over the steep snow tomorrow as far as Anna Spring camp, which is five miles this side of the lake rim, and spend the night there at the resident ranger’s headquarters, and then take to the skis again Saturday morning for the lodge, which they will make their headquarters for several days with John Mabin, the winter caretaker there.

After their visit at the lake is concluded, Messrs. Bowne and Jeldness expect to make the trip back from the lodge to Prospect in one day. The two snow adventurers can make good time on the trip through the fact that they will not have to carry any bedding or food with them, owning to the courtesy of Mr. Grieve, the Prospect and Union Creek landlord, and Alexander Sparrow, superintendent of Crater National park, who was granted permission for them to get their meals and sleep at the ranger’s quarters at Anna Spring camp and has given them the keys to government camp and asked John Mabin to extend them all courtesies at the lodge ...


William Miller, who claims to be a Russian and who was arrested several days ago on the suspicion that he was one of the men who robbed the Huber tails shop on January 30, was bound over to the grand jury this morning on $2,000 bail. The hearing took place at 10 o’clock this morning in Justice Taylor’s court.

The state witnesses numbered four, three of whom were in the vicinity of the tailor shop at the time of the robbery. Jean Watkins, Union Oil employee, was the first to testify. He described the man supposed to have been the burglar who made his escape by breaking the glass in the front of the shop and outlined the circumstances of the getaway. F. J. Huber, proprietor of the shop testified to the nature and value of the goods stolen. Mrs. Horace Bromley, who was sitting in her car in front of the shop at the time of the robbery, testified that the defendant gave the general appearance of the man who made his exit though the glass. O. L. Davidson, who was at the corner of Fir and Main at the time of the robbery, testified that he heard the crash of the glass and testified also to the similarity in general appearance and carriage between the robber and the defendant.
