ABE LOGAN'S TRIAL.
Strong Evidence for Him Tried
- ' . Save U. S. Grant.
- rThe trial of Abe Logan., one oi
. . . - , . t r 1 "11:
ine Indians accused 01 jtiiung In
dian Gnn: on the .. Siletz a few
.-weeks ago, was taken jp the U. S.
court in Portland Tuesday. The
-nrosecution - called many.-, of the
same witnesses who testified r for
r ae-ainst Martin, who , was con
victed, of manslaughter as his part
an tthe killing,.; . Martin's .de
fense tended to place the entire
blame upon Logan :andthe same
testimony came in handy?; for . the
. -prosecution of Lop an.
1 In the trial of -Logan strong eyi
43ence in favor of the innocence of
the accused Indian was brought
- out. Testimony was introduced to
the effect that a consultation be
tween Mrs. Albert Martin, wife of
4he convicted Indian, and her two
sons, in which she is alleged to
iave told' them that they ; would
1 liave to fasten the crime on ,LQgan
to save Martin from s paying , the
penalty. Other witnesses testified
that they heard tie quarrel, be
tween the drunken. Indians at the
liver and t heard Logan pleading
with Martin not to kill Qrant.
. This is the strongest testimony
'that has been brought out on the
-witness stand. Logan said in part-
'Grant : brought the !. -battles ,jof
-whiskey from Toledo. We .did'ait
want any one to get more than an-i
other, so we marked on on .tne
h tlevwith oiir thumbs the place to
where we should empty it at ; each
jdnuk. ! Hirant : passed ' his bottle
around, then I ' passed 'mine and
Jtartin passed his. Then we talk
ed some and took another drink
all round. We talked some -more
and drank another round.- Grant
began to feel kind of eood and to
rock back and forth on his horse.
Then Martin said to him. You ac
cnsed me of intimacy with your
wife, and we better have it out right
jjow. I saw that trouble was brew
ane and tried to prevent it. Martin
Icept after Grant to settle the ; mat
ter and 'he tried to get off ihis horse.
The 5 animal got - frightened and
fcrew him.? I picked him up and
Martin began to fight. - - ;
- -1 tried to stop them and told Mar-
. tin not to hurt Grant, but -they
wouldn't listen to me. " I saw there
was going to be trouble and bid my
'. -whisky bottle in the bushes, because
I didn' want to get arrested.. Grant
and Martin were , beaming each
other, and I-was too.- full to stop
them, so I : started - toward
the'agencyjtoget help. I couldn't
Ifind : "the place to cra wl
through, the wire fence for a long
, time, .and when I did :I fell in , the
jmnd. Then I, had another fence, to
iclwnb, tand I .. was ,so . full I . could
Aardly get over it, . - Then I was In
Jthe roadand. after a while J got .to
.Martin' s place. I told Geprg? New
Jjerry,, Martin's , step-son that ; his
father . was:beating , Grant. , Some
of the boys. and ..myself : went, back
to, the scene of the rouble. ',Wh,en

In substantiation ,of Logan's story :
Jhat he hadtried to separate Grant
nd Martin,. Tpm .McDonald and
his wife, two Indians who had
ieen down the river -and -were 're-,
turning on the opposite side at the!
Jime. the alleged ..fight was: in . pro
gress, testified . that they - heard
Logan begging Martin not to hurt
. Grant. ' -
Then Joe Cook, a patriarch of
the. tribe, took the stand and swore
that oa; the day of the inquest over
Grant -s -body, he had .heard Mrs.
Martin tell her two boys that they
would, have to testify so as-. to throw
the crime. pn Logan, to save Martin
