comment among the citizens of this

tract of land which was recently pur
chased by the state from Charles Mey

declares that he knows nothing what

TIN OUR BUSINESS, shows that

accounts with us. We are daily
adding new names to our already
long list of depositors. There is
a good reason for this. It is this:
they have found that the road to

courteous treatment of our cus

to the jury this morning by Prosecutor
S. Ivanhoe. The Incidents com-i
mence in the year 1910 when Mr. Dal
ton was ranging some stock on a pas

Haller, in Union county, James York
an employe of Mr. Dalton, with other
employes, went to the Haller pasture
in November, 1910 to round up the
stock owned by Mr. Dalton. The state
anys these men did not find all the
horses put In there, Including among
the missing one stallion and one mare
branded "D," the Dalton brand. The
other horses were brought to the Dal
Then the state's drama shifts to Un
ion county, the town of Union and the
time is a half year later: June first,
1911. At that time there was a wild
west show at the town of Union oper
ated and owned by a man named Buck.
In the course of the exhibitions there,
John Spain, Henry McGrath and Zlb-:
Horse had been employed to assist In
the performances; Also, at this time,
negotiations were opened between Mr.
buck, the owner 'and John Spain, for
the purchase of the wild west show
by Spain. The upshot of the negotia
tions wore that Mr. Spain was to de
liver to Buck a. certain number of
horses in return for the tent and para
phernalia. The state says that it
was agreed that If the horses were all
right they, were to be brought to the
ied bridge near Union on the fifth of
June, this year. Among the horses
thus to be sold, the state alleges, there
were two horses branded D, the ones
said to have been stolen from the Dal
ton range. The state affirms that
when Spain went to his ranges to get
the horses, he could not find the Btal
llon but did find the mare. Approach
ing the honlo of C. W. Lund who mov
ed to High ralley in the spring of 1911,
Spnin Is ald to have suggested that
ho wovld trade for a certain horse
from Lund ond that the missing stal
lion should later be found and turned
over to Lund for the one he was to
get that day. This arrangement was
made and, the state says, Spain drove
the horses -at that time made up of
one animal branded D, the one horse
he fct from Lund, and two or three
others, of which Mr. Cunningham was
of the original owners to Union.
Sj..Hir, according to the state, went to
the ied bridge that night, delivered
his horses which were found by Buck ,
to be O.-K., and there their relations
to the horses ceased. Buck then went
y open country route to Walla Wal-,
la. Later on the horses were located I
through the Lunds advising the au-
thoritles where the stallion by that
time found again came from. j
. The authorities followed up .the
clues and eventually located the horses
in a Walla Walla barn and had them
brought to La Grande, where they are
Defense Tells Its Story.
R. J. Kitchen, one of counsel for the
defendants, presented- the opening
statement to the Jury for the defense.
His story commences at the time of
the horse show at Union. The same
wild west show and the same condi
tions generally are admitted. But
about this time the defense story takes
a tangent course and never at any
times comes mar that of the state.
The defense maintains that ' when
the negotiations for the purchase of
the1 wild west show reached the cli
max, iRoy Lund, son of the High Val
ley ranger, said that he had some
horses which might be sold to Spain
who could then trade them to Buck
for the show outfit. To make a long
story short, Roy Lund and McGrath
went to the Lund ranch on Sunday and
on Monday they rounded up the hors- i
es and brought them to Union.
While the horses branded D were
admitted to be among them, the de
fense did not indicate how they came
to be on the Lund ranch. That even
ing in a restaurant In Union John
Spain, McGrath, (Morse, Roy Lund and
several others were present and the
defense Bay that at that time and
hour, Spain paid to Roy Lund the sum
of $150 for five head of horses. This
sum of money is small In comparison
with the states charges fixed on the
horses alleged to have been stolen.
The Indictment says the horses stolen
were worth $150 each. But at any
rate, the defense says that Spain paid

red bridge and .turned over to Mr.
Buck who accepted them and" took .
