Eastern Oregon Indian Chiefs Ask Pardon for Keds Who
Murdered Woman They Believed to Be Bad Medi

Washington. July Jl.fhe ' chief
'and head men of .the three Indian trlbee
. on the UmaUlU reservation have united
.to plead with President Boosevelt for
- the pardoning of Tor Tor and Columbia
George, two Indiana who are now In the
Oregon penitentiary for the murder of
an Indian woman several years ago.
Solemnly, the leading spirits of the
tribes represent that the - woman who
I was killed was "bad medicine," and they
lay against her reputation the unflat
tering eharge that aha was addicted to
'the use of strong drink and other prac
tlcea which, they declare In their peti
tion, "disgrace a woman." , .
It is recited that she wedded at 14
years of age a white man aged TO, and
.that at onoe ahe Joined tb ultra-bohe-mlan
sat on the reservation, and finally
i In her -older years became an Indian
. medicine woman, and "sure death to In-
ill.n. ... ......
Tot Toy and Columbia Goorse, when
: tried for their crime, pleaded custom of
the Indian, in that ahe as medicine
woman had treated some of their rela
tives who under her . incantations died,
t Skilled, lawyers searched for prece
dents and authorities of the courts to
.Justify the acquittal they sought on the
around that the Indians In killing her
had acted according to their aavage re
ligious conceptions, and therefor had
committed no moral wrong. - -
It waa aought to induce the court to
'take a judicial view of the case to
'square with these contentions, but the
judge of the trial court denied. '
Life sentences wees then Imposed, and
the two avengers of the wrongs in-
f acted on their kinsmen by the medicine
woman went t Tleon In expiation.
