Alleged Bounty Fakir Puts Up
Clever Explanation in '
FOUND NOT GUILTY.
COQUILLE, Ore., April 2S.
The jury in the case of "Coon-
skin Charley" Neal brought Ina
verdict of not guilty. The first
ballot was eight to four for con-
viction, the next nine to three
for conviction but Ilnnlly all
agreed on the not guilty verdict.
COQUILLE, Ore., April 2S. Dis
trict Attorney Gee. Brown went up
against an unexpected defense yes
terday In tho case of the State vs
Chas. Neal, known as "Coonskln
Charley" who was on trial on an in
dictment charging him with collect
ing the Coos county bounty on coy
otes killed In Idaho.
The prosecution had shown by
several witnesses that Neal had col
lected the bounty on a large number
of scalps that were old and dried out.
Also that a number of the witnesses
had met him en route from Rose
burg to Coquille on the day prior
to his collecting tho bounty and that
he was carrying tho bag from which
he delivered the pelts to County
Clerk AVatson. Also that he had
brought the sack Into Roscburg when
he came in on tho train from Idaho.
The case seemed conclusive and Dis
trict Attorney Brown rested his case
with a contented smile, as ho was
certain that he had shown It was
Impossible for Neal to have killed
the coyotes In this county.
But when Neal started In and of
fered his version, the smile on Mr.
Brown's face gradually faded. Neal
ndmltted all the testimony offered
by the prosecution and that the wit
nesses had seen him as they alleged.
However, ho said that several months
previous ho had been in Coos county
and had returned eastward between
the Middle and South Forks of the
Coquille and spent sometime trap
ping. He got a large number of coy
ottes and as tho roads were bad ho
went on to Roseburg intending to
collect the bounty there. Ho said
he supposed that there was only a
state bounty on them and not until
his brother-in-law informed him that
Coos county was paying an extra
bounty was he enlightened as to his
error. Then ho said he had to hast
en to his old home in Idaho so he
postponed collecting any bounty on
them. Intending to return later and
do It. So several months later when
he had to return to Roseburg and
also to Mrytlo Point to seo relatives
