The preliminary hearing of Jesse
O. Drake, accused of the crime of
criminal libel in connection with
writing an alleged defamatory article
and causing the same to be published
In the Portland Oregonlan, reached
a conclusion In Justice of the Peace
Reuben Marster's court at uoon to
day. The defendant was held to ap
pear before the grand jury during
the November term of the circuit
court under bonds In the sum of
Dr. A. P. Sether, the most Im
portant witness introduced upon be
half of the state t est 1 lied this morn
ing that he was a practicing physi
cian, and that he was at present a
resident of Roseburg. As near as he
could remember, he said that he was
first called to attend Judge J. W
Hamilton, the man responsible for
Drake's arrest, early In May, at
which time the official was suffering
from a mild attack of lagrlppe. A
few days later, the physician said
that Judge Hamilton ventured Into
the open, and on about May 7, suf
fered a relapse which developed Into
pneumonia. Dr. Sether also testl
fled that he called upon Judge Ham
ilton frequently, and that he was In
no condition to conduct the trial of
Roy McClallen. In answer to Inter
rogations of the district attorney
Dr. Sether said that he Insisted upon
Judge Hamilton taking to his bed
on or about May 7. and that he re
mained confined to his room until
nbont May 27 when he was allowed
to enjoy a short walk for the first
time since taken HI. Dr. Sether said
that he was present In the court
room on the evening that Judge Coke
dellevered his Instructions to the
jurv, and that on the same night
Judge Hamilton was unable to leav
his room.
On cross-examination, Attornoy
Jackson asked Dr. Sether whether or
not he had been summoned to attend
Judge Hamilton prior to the shoot
ing of B. A. Mahan. In response he
said he had not.
Luther Page, local agent for the
Portland Oregonlan. testified that he
was In Roseburg on Monday. July 17,
and that he delivered 400 papers, all
of which contained the alleged de
famatory article. One copy or me
paper containing the article was Iden
tified hy Mr. Page, and was later
Introduced in evidence hy the dis
trict attorney over the objection ol
the attorney for the defense.
John Hunter was recalled to the
witness stand this morning and was
asked to identify tho original copy
of the article as sent to the Portland
Oregonlnn for publication by Mr.
Drake. The copy was received here
this morning by the district attorn
ey. Mr. Hunter said he thought the
original copy, as submitted to him,
was written on tablet paper, and was
not similar in appearance to the one
submitted for Identification
morning. He said, however, that
the copy In hand might be tho orig
inal. Further, Mr. Hunter, declau-.l
that he had read the article In ques
tion prior to Its publication, and had
advised Drake to eliminate Hint part
relating to Judge Hamilton. In 11
of this paragraph he advised Mr
Drake lo Insert something relative to
the part played In tho cast of Jus
tice of the Peace Reuben Mantlets
The Attorney for the defense play
ed a running card when he refits
ed to Introduce witnesses on behalf
of his client. This procedure not
only gives him an Insight to t
evidence that will he submitted b
the state during tho trial In t
event of Drake's Indictment, bill
blocked the district attorney In I
trodnrlng witnesses In rebuttal
Diatrlct Attorney Brown argil
the rase at some length, and refcrrr
to the article as one of the most d
famatory publications he hud ev
read. He pictured Judge llamllti
;s a pillar in the judiciary of Ore
gon. and declared that his good rep
utation, a work of over 30 years. h
been attacked. He said that no ma
had a right to publish or rau
be published an article of this na
ture, regardless of what his private
opinion might lie. The district ai-
torney said that Judee Hamilton had
held office In Douglts county for 30
years, and never before had been sc.
cused of shirking hit duty. "This In
a serious matter." said the district
attorney, "(his article has circulated
over entire northwest, and ha
without doubt Injured the complain
ing witnem." It was the district
attorney's contention that a person
has no right to publish a defamatory
article, neither ca.u he express such
an opiuion In writing unless he has
he facts to substantiate it in detail.
Attorney C. S. Jackson, represent-
n g the defendant, contended that a
person had a right to express au
opinion, and in substantiating his
assertion, presented ' an authority
giving to the people of the state the
privilege of their opinion. Attor
ney Jackson, declared that neither
reference to Judge Hamilton was of
libelous nature, but on the con
trary, was simply given out as an
opinion and not as a fact.
Both the district attorney and the
attorney for the defeuse submitted
numerous authorities, all of which
were discussed at length by the op
posing counsel.
Drake furniBhed the necessary
(250 bonds this afternoon to Insure

Al Creason. a well known local
capitalist, and his wife are today
confined in their apartments in a
Myrtle Point hotel suffering from
the effects of an accident which bo
fell them lute yesterday afternoon
while enroute from Roseburg to Coos
county points lu Mr. Creason's tour
ing car. Miss ldu Creason, the 18-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Ma.
Creason, who was in company with
her parents at the time the accident
occurred, escaped, uninjured.
According to Information received
here this afternoon direct from Mr.
Creason, he had reached a dangerous
I spot on the Rosoburg-Myrtle Point
rond. near the summit of Sugar Loaf
mountain, about 55 miles west of
this city, and was backing up lu
order to allow a team to pass when
the loose earth at the outor edge of
the road suddenly gave way and al
lowed the heavy machine to plunge
down-the steep embankment and In
to the Coqullle river, a dlstunco of
05 feet below.
Although suffering Intense -pain
from a dislocated shoulder. Mr.
Creason succeeded In ascending the
bank) and reaching a nearby tele
phone Hint Inn where he told of what
had occurred. Messages were im
mediately sent to Myrtle Point and
an automobile carrying physlrlans
were rushed to the scene of the nc-
After lending whatever assistance
as was possible Mr. find Mrs. Crea
son nnd daughter wore hurried to
Myrtle Point whore they were made
comfortable at one of tho leading ho
tela. Examination of the Injuries
of tho patlentB showed that Mr. Crea
son sustained a dislocated shoulder
while his wife was more or less
bruised. First reports lo reach Hose
burg were to the effect that Mrs
Ceason had stistulned a broken leg,
five broken ribs and was also suffi
lug from Internal Injuries. This
port wiib denied by Mr. Creason thli
afternoon, however, when ho tele
nlioned a Roseburg friend that hi:
wife wos getting along nicely
sustained no broken hones. Mrs
Creason'a Internal Injuries are
ported as slight? and it Is M. C
son's belief that she will bo
to return home In a few days.
Tho daughter, who occupied the
renr seat with her mother Jumped
as the machine darted off the road
and escaped Injury. Tho automo
bile which was recently purchased
by Mr. Creason at a cost of about
$1,300 Is said to be quite badly dam
aged. Mr. Creason, with his wife and
daughter, left Roseburg for Coos
county points several days ago with
the expectation of siclidlng two or
three weeks In that locality enjoy
ing their annual outing.
The scene of yesterday's accident
Is considered one of the most danger
ous spots on the lloseburg-Myrtle
Point road. The road winds around
tho edge of Sugar I-Kiuf Moulituln.
and In some places Is said to be
nearly 200 feet above the river. Un
protected at tho outer edge the road
furnishes a most excellent opportun
ity for nersons mturquulntcd with
the sharp curves and sleep grades
lo meet a premaluro fate.
Owing to the prominence of Mr.
Creason and his family In this vicin
ity the news of tho accident spread
like wildfire upon Us arrival here
last night. Many persons took ad
vantage of the telephone In their
eagerness to learn the details of the
accident, while others resorted to the
use of the telegraph Wires.
First reports tended lo Indicate
that there was little hope of Mrs.
Creason's recovery, while a second
message was lo the effect that an
efftirt was being made to charier a
special train at .Myrtle I'olut In order
to carry the Injured to the hospital
at North Hend. Other similar con
flicting messages were received at In-
