the Irish are disappearing. Iho owner

This case on trial Tuesday was ably
coutcBted by eacti party, loo issuo
in thia caso is ouo growing out of
the V. L. Arrington defalcation as
treasurer of Dougls county. Tho record
shows that iu 1892 Aaton Rose went on
Arrington'e bond for $10,000 and H.
Wollenborg for $20,000. Arrington de
tailed and his bondsmen had to pay $22,-
990, tho amount of embezzlomcnt. Rose
paid half tho forfeit, $11,485. This set
tlement with the county stopped further
costs against them ns sureties at that
time. Rose now seeks to recover from
Wollenborg about $4,003, the diffoteuco
between one-third, which, as ho claims
by tho tenor of tho bond, to be tho
amount for which ho was m jubtice
liable and what ho uctually did pay;
that is, he claims ho should pay only
one-third of that $22,990, the amount of
tho defalcation becauao ho subscribed
but one-third and Wolenberg two-thirds
of the bond. In other words Rose sub
scribed $10,000, one-third of the amount
of the bond, and Wollenberg aubscriliod
$20,000, or two-thirds. The bond hav
ing been forfeited by Arriugton's defal
cation to the amount of $22,990 Rose
claims ho ought to pay only one-third o(
that money $4,003, wheroas he paid
$11,495, and Rose has brought action to
recover that difference, or $3,831.07.
The plaintiff Rose claims as the grounds
of bis action, that it was u mutual under
standing at tho time of signing the
bond that he (Rose) would go on
Arrington'a bond for $10,000 only, and
that Wollenberg was to take the balance,
$20,000. Each subscribed and certified
that they were respectively wortli these
amounts, uud were willing to carry, each
one, the amount he subscribed and that
that arrangement was in law a bonatide
agreement, Rose to pay one-third in
caso of defalcation and Wollenberg to
pay two-thirds. On the other hand, as
there was no written or special verbal
agreement to that effect between them,
Wollenberg refuses to repay Roee the
amount be claim?.
The jury returned a verdict for
$4003 55 with interest at S per cent from
April 1, lS9 t.
The case of State oi Oregon vf. Ned
Sutherlin, indicted for killing Henry
Bruso near Oakland last September, is
now on trial before the following jury
men: Fred Allen, Dwight Reed, A. F.
Dancan, J. L. Cole, L. Letsom, James
Overstreet, Fre 1 Fisher, A. O. Rose, M.
F. Callahan, J. J. McCoy, W. H. Gor
don and W. J. Lander.
The nature of the testimony brought
out by the prosecution up to Wednes
day evening at time of adjjurnment
failed to show conclusively that Bruso
was killed by a blow from any one.
Neither Mr. James Brown nor his wife
at whoso house the killing is supo;ed to
have been done, and who witnessed a
quarrel between Henry Biuso, Geo.
Nalta and the defendant, Ned Sutherlin,
neither saw the blow or who struck it, if
such a blow was struck. The only per
son who did see him strike the blow, if
a blow was struck, is Geoige Nalta and
he cannot n-jw be produced. That
Henry Braao is dead 3ml that he died
from tho effects of a blow on the head .py
a bl'int instrument of some kind is con-clu.-ive.
Dr. W. U. Gilmore, who was called
soon after tho tragedy to attend the de-
ceased, who at that time was still breath
ing, though unconscious, testifies that
the death of the patient was caused by a
severe blow upon the head by some
blunt object that caused a contusion of
the scalp, a fracture of tho skull and a
compression of the brain. He trepaned
the skull and removed a portion under
the contused scalp and found clotted
blood beneath the portion of skull re
moved. But from what source the con
tusion was received he could not tell
did not know. Tbo doctor gave a very
clear and lucid explanation, the cause of
death so far as apparent, physical causes
were discernible, hut the cause of con
tusion of the scalp and fracture of the
eknll he knew not. His testimonv was
wholly circumstantial as tho primary
Mrs. Brown heard a sound as of
heavy blow or pistol shot, and saw the
deceased fall with his face down upon
the floor of her house, "with his feet
just outside the door," but did not see
any one striko him. Mr. Brown was
standing within arma reach of Bruso
when he fell down into tho door be
side him, but Bweara he did not sea any
one strike him.
Both Brown and his wifo witnessed
tin quarrel between the men over some
hop picking matters. They s.iy that
bottle of liquor was passed around but
did not know whether any of the parties
wero intoxicated or not. Brown said
"I refute to drink" and that Bruso, the
deceased, slapped Ned Sutherlin's face,
and that hia nose bled from its effect
Mrs. Brown Baid: Ned Sutherlin left
tho house after Bruso slapped h is face
that the striking of Bruso as appeared by
the sound she heard when Bruso fell at
full length into the house "with his feet
just outside the door," was not seen by
her: she did not know of herownknowl
edge who or what struck him. She iden
titled a stick ol timber that was exhib
itcd to her as ouo ehu found next morn
ing niter tho killing in front of tho house.
She gave it next day to Mr. Medley tho
constable. She supposed it was the
stick witli which Bru3o was struck
would not swear that it was. Sho said
Bruso "novor spoke n word aftor ho was
struck." Shu saw it dark object iu Sutli

that was shown her. iho dufonso ob
jected to roadiug the papor presented
bearing tho witness signature. Tho
Court overrulod the objection after
lengthy confab of the oppoaiug counsel
and the witness answered tho question
based upou tuo matter in tho paper
eigne J by her. She said "I spuposed be
struck him with a club."
"Bruao struck Ned Sutlnrli.i ou the
side of his lace and knocked Uii hit off
and male hid uw bloel" My huj
baud told Ilium all to go uiit tur-t, htt
would have ii ) fuss in his Ii uho, tliure
was more roim ou'. d j in if thy waircd
to fight."
Mr. Brown also testified that when he
ordered Sutherlin, Bruso and No'ta out of
the house when they were disputing,
Brueo caught hold of Nolta and dragged
him to tho door and while Bruso was
standing on the steps six or eight inches
down from the door Hoar he was struck.
tSutherlin went out at the kitchen doar.
The witness described from a diagram
of tho house given him, the several posi
tions of each party, a few minutes before
and a part of them at the time of the
striking of Bruso by whom or whatever
struck him jo witness saw a blow
struck Brown said "My wife gave the
club to Bob MeJIey of Oakland after the
trouble. I did not see any club at the
titno of the trouble."
The prosecution rested the case this
forenoon witl tho testimony of W. T.
Turner, the justice of the peace be
fore whom the preliminary trial was had,
whereupon the counsel for tho defenFe
gavo notice that they would movo the
court for an acquittal on the grounds of
insufficient evidence to convict.

Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
riore About Hinman and the Deputies
Speaking of the arrest of Hinman for
the robbing of May's store at Riddle,
the Record, doubtless speaking by cord
of its Ro3eburg informant, says:
"Deputy R. L. Stephens went to the
ome ot bam uayhardt, ilinman's
brother-in-law, and arrested him, who
then offered no resistance, claiming he
as innocent."
Now there is just fact enough in the
above to give it the semblance of truth.
L. Stephens did not arrest Hinman.
Hinman gave himEelf up, had a prelimi
nary trial before Justice Dean at Rid
dle, was bound over to the grand jury
and Constable Nichols brought him to
Roseburg and turned him over to the
sheriff, who put him in jail. On Octo
ber 14th last, Hinman dug out of jail in
broad daylight and escaped with two
other burglars. Bob has not yet been
caught nor ia be likely to be. Little or
nothing has been dune to recapture him.
The officials "dance to Hinman'a
music." They do not propose to risk
their precious carcasses to a shot from
Bob Hinman'a Winchester from behind a
log as did Mr. Huggins. They enjoy the
luxury of a cushioned seat too well to al
low those pleasures to be cut off by a
rifle ball in the way Huggins was, since
Hinman broke jail
Hinman will shoot and our eheriff and
is deputies know it. Discretion with
them is the better part of valor. They
are no anxious to become a target for
Bob Hinman to try hia skill in gunnery
on. The Plain-dealer does cot believe
