Found Upon Dead Man's
Saddle; Also on His Horse.
That Louis Itagains was shot at
some spot outside of the Wright cabin I
and was taken to the cabin after his.
death and the body pieced In pos tion
on the floor is a theory of the tragedy
that has been current following a trip
to tne cabin yesterday by three car
loads of people who made a careful
examination of the premises.
That thete was blood stains on Ua
galns' own saddle and that a stain on
the shoulder of his horse Is thou:;ht
to be blood are two startling Indica
tions that are taken as establishing the
plausibility of the theory. .A saddle
said to be the property of Ragruns was
brought down to Pendleton shortly af
ter the shooting, but the invest :gat ion
yesterday which was made under the
direction of c. Z. Randall, deputy dis
trict attorney, and Deputy Sheriff E.
B. F Kidgway, disclosed the Tact that
the Krddle held here was not Kaolins'
jt all. His saddle had hciri taken
back to his place and his horso turned
jo:ii in the pasture, according ta re
ports and there are indications that
f,n effert to waeh the stains from
both the saddle and the horse had

Asked whether there was any cor.i

attorney on this report, C A. Randall

Keator had any statement to make at

found in the wall of the cabin. !i3 de
