Harry Tracy's suicide ended a 58-day manhunt Story by Capi Lynn Harry Tracy n the morning of June 9, 1902, guards at the Oregon State Penitentiary marched a group of prisoners to the foundry building. As they filed in among aisles of tools and materials used to make iron stoves, Harry Tracy and David Merrill grabbed 30-caliber Winchester rifles, which must have been smuggled in, and began firing. Tracy shot one guard in the back, and Merrill shot a fellow prisoner who tried to foil the escape. Once outside, the desperados used a ladder to scale the 15-foot perimeter wall, but not before Tracy shot two more guards. So began the greatest manhunt in Northwest history, lasting 58 days and crisscrossing Oregon and Washington. Sunday is the 100-year anniversary of the escape, which left three guards dead. The fellow prisoner had to have his leg amputated and later was pardoned for his heroism.

SATURDAY, JJUMQPiiJIAIESMAJlJj 2A StatesmanJournaI.com 'Affable murderer' became famed outlaw CONTINUED FROM 1 A about the escape and subsequent manhunt Many of the exact details have been muddled over time, the legend no doubt embellished, "It's a fascinating story," said Bill Gulick, author of the book "Manhunt: The Pursuit of Harry Tracy," published in 1999. For Gulick, Tracy's tale started as a single chapter in a book he was writing about outlaws of the Pacific Northwest But the author shelved that project to focus on a man whose real name was Harry Severn. "The more I got into it, the more I found was there," Gulick said. ' Tracy led lawmen, bloodhounds, National Guardsmen, posses and newspaper reporters on the chase. He outgunned and outsmarted them, always staying one step ahead. He often took the unexpected route, stopping at farm homes along the way for food, a change of clothing and a fresh horse. He never harmed his hosts and was particularly kind to the ladies, which explains why he often was referred to ' as an affable murderer. - Headlines were smeared across the front pages of newspapers everywhere, many ridiculing those who failed to capture the man who twice before had . escaped prisons in other states. One headline read "Tracy defeats dogs with cayenne pepper." The story went on to detail his method of throwing the bloodhounds off his trail. Rewards in excess of $5,000 were offered for the capture and return of Tracy, dead or alive. The money which would be the equivalent of nearly $100,000 today enticed amateur bounty hunters to join the search. Reporters covering the , chase often carried guns, and some had quick triggers. At least one sheriff complained that both were interfering with the manhunt Residents of Oregon and Washington had a big appetite for news about Tracy. Crowds gathered in front of newspaper offices to read updated bulletins. "It was like the O.J. Simpson case," Gulick said. "Everybody had to have theirfix." Those who had run-ins with Tracy became celebrities when interviewed afterward. Tracy reportedly enjoyed the spotlight, always asking for copies of recent newspapers when he stopped to rest. -i Though described as witty and charming by some hostages, Tracy remained a coldblooded killer. In addition to killing the three guards at the state penitentiary, he gunned down three lawmen in the Seattle area, and bragged of shooting and killing Merrill, his partner in crime, in a duel some three weeks after their escape. The manhunt for Tracy ended in Eastern Washington, on a farm about 50 miles west of Spokane. A posse of five -men cornered him in a grain field, at least one of their bullets hitting him in the leg. He might have bled to death if he hadn't shot himself above the right eye with a revolver. Paul Lillengreen, who lives in Edwall, Wash., has a rifle that might have fired the shot that hit Tracy in the leg. It belonged to his great uncle, Frank Lillengreen, a member of the posse. "I can't claim for sure my uncle's rifle did it," Paul Lillengreen said, "but it could just as well have been his as any of the others." He said the gun is in working condition and that he last fired it about four years ago.

He was buried next to his partner in crime, David Merrill. The two had been serving time for assault and robbery at the time of their escape. Tracy was sentenced to 20 years, and Merrill to 1 3 years. Both had served three years of their terms.

Lillengreen declined to say where he keeps the gun or whether it's on display in his home. "That's classified information," he said with a chuckle. He's toying with the idea of loaning it to the Lincoln County Historical Society in Davenport, Wash., about 10 miles east of where Tracy was killed. The museum already exhibits photographs, newspaper clippings and a frying pan that belonged to Tracy. The so-called "death mask," a molding of Tracy's face done at the mortuary that handled his body, had been the centerpiece of the exhibit but is now on loan to a museum in Spokane. Before Tracy's body could be returned to the state penitentiary and identified by prison officials, the mortuary reportedly put it on display for a time to help cover costs, charging a nickel a head.

The body was under careful guard on the train trip to Salem. After being positively identified as Tracy, he was buried in the prison cemetery next to Merrill, whose body had been discovered some weeks before. . According to newspaper accounts, Tracy's body was covered with quick lime and muriatic, or hydrochloric, acid before it was buried to discourage anyone from stealing and publicly exhibiting it. Today, no one knows the exact location of the cemetery, although many mark the spot just beyond the current wall in the northeast corner of the prison. When the wall was built in that area in about 1949, some human remains reportedly were discovered but not identified. Prison officials claim no bones were found during the construction of two A buildings in that corner, the last completed in 1991. Although the whereabouts of his grave are unknown, Tracy's legacy lives on. Long after his escape, correctional officers at the state penitentiary were briefed on the details to ensure that it would never happen again. Carl Beals, who started working at the prison in 1956, remembers learning about the escape during training sessions. "They talked about how it occurred and what was learned," said the Salem man, who retired in 1981. "Remember, Tracy and Merrill had outside help. "The first question I had is, 'Why didn't they pursue who brought the stuff in?'" . How the guns got inside the prison foundry remains a mystery. The reason simply may have been that prison and state officials were embarrassed about the escape and lengthy manhunt, and wanted the ordeal to be over. Everett and Karen Cole have a con-' stant reminder of Tracy's legacy on their 17,000-acre ranch in Eastern Washington. Tracy Rock, an outcropping of basalt rock, is the place where the outlaw took cover under fire from the posse before he shot himself. The natural monument is about seven miles off the main highway, and not open to the public. "We can't have a tourist attraction out there," Karen Cole said.

DESCENDANTS OF FIRST WHITE SETTLER IN ELK HOLD REUNION

Meet In Lexington With Pioneer Child As Honored Guest BY Walter D. Hoist, Staff Correspondent

Peck, Aug. 24 Historical facta of the early days of Sanilac county remain vivid in the memory of descendants of Nathaniel VanNest, first white settler of Elk township, of which William Henry VanNest, 78, residing here is, the oldest surviving member. Facts were recently recalled at a family reunion held at Lexington. "William Henry VanNest of this village was named president of the group for 1929. Mrs. Charlotte McGlinch of Bay City is the retiring president. Other officers named are: Vice president, Lloyd VanNest, Marine City, socretnry and treasurer, Mrs. Joseph Mc-Bride, Sandusky. The 1929 reunion will be held at Peck in August, 1929. In addition to being honored as ill " ft $ A i m isf : ride on Tires than other kind LOOK THE FOR BIG GOODYEAR SIGN f 9 a V V V V V V 3 9 5 a I AVIIXIAM IIEXRY VAN" EST president of the family group. William Henry VanNest was honored as the oldest member of the family In attendance. Made First Elk Roads Nathaniel- VanXest, father of William Henry, was said to be the first white settler in Klk township. He settled near Lexington with his family In 1844, and in 1853 came through the swamp to Elk. The elder VanNest is said to have laid out the first roads in Elk township in 1858, assisted by his sons, of : which William Henry was one. Only four children still survive out of 11. They include: William Henry VanNest of Peck; Charles VanNest of Saskatchewan; Mrs. Zelia Gray of Algonac; Mrs. Clara VanDusen of Detroit, pioneer children of Elk. i Mrs. Gray, who Is 73, claims to ; be the first white child born in Elk township. j Discussion of early days recalled the history of the township. The township is said to have received its name from Elk creek, also the fact that elk were more plentiful than deer in that section. j Son First Mall Carrier-Two versions of how the village of Peck received its name were given. One which Is believed au thentic Is that it was in honor of William Henry Peck who built the Grand Trunk railroad from Port Huron to Lapeer, at that time a prominent figure in state and national affairs. Another memory of the old pioneers Is that eome old-timer one day jokingly remarked that the village was not big enough to be called a half -bushel, thus the name of Peck. Charles VanNest, of Aneroid, Sask., who travelled more than 2,000 miles to be present at the family reunion, stated that he was the first mail carrier from Lexington to Peck. This was in the early 60's. At one time Nathaniel VanNest owned more than 1,000 acres of land in Elk. He originally settled in section 28. Out-of-Town Guests A fund is to be created this year by the family to memorialize the graves of Nathaniel and Matilda VanNest, his wife, in Elk cemetery. Among the guests present from out-of-town were: Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Devitt. Royal Oak; Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd VanNest, Marine City: Glen VanDusen and family, Al pena; Mr. and Mrs. J.
