Both he and Mr. Montanye have re--ceived
numerous endorsements. Linn

Morris and Smith, the two men
broueht back from Rosebnrg last week
by Sheriff Rider, were given a prelimin
ary hearing on the charge of horse steal-
ins:, before Justice of the Peace rnrUin
at Medford Thursday. They were held
to answer to the Circuit Court, and their
bonds fixed at $500 each, in default of
which they were committed to the couu
ty jail. The impression that one of the
accused men was the notorious and
much wanted Ed Lyons is pronounced
incorrect bv Sheriff Rider, who knows
Lyons. Evidence points strongly to the
two men in custody as members of the
horse-stealing gang which has been
oncratine in Southern Oregon. Ashland
