United State. The whole of the scheme
of securing the land, lturch declared,
recked with fraud, which the defendant
a an attorney miut have had knowl

question, but the court should Inquire
only if there are fact tending to eatab

rather than the government should
prove him guilty. Every presumption
in the evidence must be in favor of the
defendant. Every act of llorah's to
which the evidence had alluded was
shown to be open end above board and

Man Who Arrested Steve Adam and
Was Employed as IiULa Detective
Believed to Have Been Killed For
BAKER CITY, Or., Oct. l.-One of the
most dastardly crime that ever occurred
in Baker county wa committed in Baker
City last night when ex-Sheriff Harvey
K. Brown was blown up by a bomb as
he entered his gate. The deed was com
mitted about 10:30 p. m., as Mr. Brown

man s about 5 feet 10 inches tall,
weight 163 pounds, wearing , brown
suit and a celluloid collar and smooth
shaven He said he was conscious he
had been shadowed for the previous
