John Diets, the outlaw of Cameron
Dam. his wife and his son Leslie were
placed on trial today before Judge
Alexander Reld in the Circuit Court.
They are charged Jointly with having
shot and killed Oscar Harp, a Deputy
Sheriff, who was one of the posse which
besieged the Diets cabin at Cameron
Dam on Thornapple River last Octo
ber, and who was found dead after a
gunflght with the Diets family. -
There were several warrants out for
John Diets, who for a number of years
had defied the officers. The trouble
grew out of a dispute with the Chip,
pews Boom tc Lumber Company, which
built a darn in the Thornapple' River
near the Diets homestead. The flood
waters. Diets claims, damaged his land.
He claimed he could not negotiate a
satisfactory arrangement with the com-
pany and he destroyed the dam and
held up a large cut of logs for a year
or more. The company was obliged to
haul the logs off with teams.
When the court opened, the Illinois
Surety Company, of Milwaukee, and
the Indemnitors who reinsured Diets'
$10,000 bond, announced thst they de
clined longer to ' be responsible for
Diets and he was given into the cus
tody of Sheriff Kred Clark. Bonds of
the other members of the. Diets family
have not bean revoked.
When the court asked Diets If be
wanted a lawyer. Diets said no. and
"I might ss well tell you I have not
any too much faith In lawyers, since
one told Myra that the lumber com
pany had IwO witnesses to impeach her
testimony and we would have to fight

repeatedly asked them If they would

what Is considered a well-organized gang
of procurers operating between Salt Lake
and Boise on the west and Pocatello and
Butte on the north.
The specific charge against the Corean
is a violation of the Federal statute pro
hibiting the transportation from one
state to another of women for Immoral
purposes. The charge against Ostrander
is violation of the Interstate Commerce
law. He is alleged to have sent an em
ploye from Pocatello to Ogden for him
self, and forged the word "Mrs." before
his own name, giving It to a woman of
the underworld to Journey to Ogden to
meet the Corean who in turn paid the
woman's fare back to Pocatello to lead
again a life of shame.
