Coos Bay News    Marshfield (Coos Bay), OR.
MAY -SEPT 1901   fragments

Gage  Gallier  News5  May 28, 1901  
   ...The sheriff [sic] has offered a reward of $350 {M. not sure whether it says
$250 or $350] for the arrest of Landis, and several parties are out in h  hope
[print] of securing it. W. W. Gage, ex-sheriff, was in town yesterday, and on
learning of the reward, rushed for Empire, to take a hand in the chase.
   It has now developed that Landis, Daily [sic], and a man employed at Gage's
camp, left Marshfield together on Sunday morning, May 19. They kept in
company as far as the Junction, where the logger turned off for the camp, and
Daily and Landis continued along the railroad track towards Coquille City. 
Cedar Point is a little over a mile on this side of Coquille City, and it was
probably after dark when they reached there.

Landis  Gage  Gallier  locales  News3 June 19, 1901 
We mentioned last week that W.W. Gage was after a man on Coos river,
whom, it was thought, might be Landis; but it turned out to be a wild goose
chase.  The last authentic information regarding Landis is that he was seen at
Arlington, Or., on June 7th, by a lawyer from Eugene, who recognized him
and talked to him.  The lawyer had not heard anything about the murder at that
time; but on returning to Eugene and learning of it, he at once notified the
authorities, who telegraphed to Sheriff Gallier.  The deputy sheriff, Ed.
Gallier, was at Roseburg at the time, on his return from Salem, and he
proceeded at once to Arlington.  Several days had then elapsed since Landis
had been seen, and it is very probable that he is well into the British
possessions by this time.
