was apparently out of place at the sal

stunning blow the latter threw him
down and choked him fur a short time
when he was satisfied to go without
any further resistance. Every one
who saw the trouble was of the opin

exactly what be deserved since no one
has any right to go to such a place and
raise a disturbance..

J. S. Thompson, of Fossil, Gilliam
county who recently passed through
The Dalles with a band of horses for
the Portland market, says: The winter
has been a hard one on horses, in
Gilliam county, though cattle and
sheep came through all right, as they
were fed bay. Fully one-half of the
range horses have died, and many of
them were pretty gocd animals, which
had been broken to ride or to work In
harness. ' Most of the losses were
among the younger horses yearlings
to 2-year-olds, as . the older horses,
having better teeth, could manage to
get hold of a grass- root occasionally.
There are some parties out skinning
the dead horses since they found that
the hides are worth S3 to $4 apiece.
This work cannot last long, however,
as the mild weather will soon cause
the carcasses to spoil. .

What the more Important Wltneste Said
During Three Days. j
The trial of Frank Forester, an ar
count of the first two days of which
was given last week, was continu-d un
til Tuesday evening, when the case
was given to the jury. Following is
substantially the evidence that was
given Friday evening, Saturday, Mon
day and Tuesday
When Charles Clarno was excused
from the stand Friday afterno v
after having been under the cross fire
of attorneys nearly all day, Dr. Wiley
was called, and gave testimony con
cerning the wound rrhich caused Mr.
Farquer McRae was the next wit
ness called. He was with Mr. Brogan
in Silvertooth'ssa oon when Forester,
Slim and the Mexican came In. - His
testimony coucerning the way the
trouble began carroborated tbatof Gum
but went farther, as he saw all of the
trouble, while Gum did not. After
Gum knocked Forester down, and
while Sl:m was holding Gum, Forester
rose to his feet, while Brogan started
to pick up a chair and was advanciug
toward the door, when Forester made
a rjsh' at him (Brogan) and stabbed
him with a large knife. Forester then
ran out the front door, and that was
the last seen of him by MeRae.
Several other witn ss were called to
prove the whereabouts of Brogan and
Forester the day prior to the trouble,
among tbem T. S. Hamilton, who was
with Brogan at the bowling alley
during the afternoon, an hour or so
before the killing.
Max Luddeman, who took down the
evidence of witnesses at the Inquest,
was called to the stand and testified as
to the correctness of the written
testimoney given by Charles Clarno
before the cororer's jury, which was
in conflict with that given on the
The next witnes of any importance
was Miss Ella Hamlltoo.called Saturday
morning, who testified that about 4:30
on the evening of the killing she was
passing down . the business street of
Antelope and saw two men, whom she
believed to be Brogan and Forester,
quarreling in front of the Occidental
restuarant, and heard the one sbe
thought to be Forester say "be would
have it or ho would have blood."
This was about one and one-balf hours
before 6be heard of the death of
W. E. Kemp, marshal of Antelope,
and E. J. Glisan, justice of the peace,
who held the inquest, were also called
and gave testimony on minor points
concerning the case.
Mrs. Taylor, who lives about three
quarters of a mile from Antelope, was
quite an Important witness, with reft r
ence to Forester's attempt to 'escape,
her testimony being that he called at
her house at about six o'clock on the
nizht Brogan was Killed and asked
for a horse, and on being told he could
not have one started up Antelope
valley on a run. '
' The last witness called by the prose
cution was Sheriff Kelly, who testified
to his going to Winnemucca, Nev.,
after Forester who had been arrested
by the sheriff of Humbolt county, his
taking Forester into custody and his
willingness to return to Oregon for the
purpose of standing trial. Here the
attorneys for the state rested their
case, and court adjourned to 1:30 in
the afternoon. .
On the reconvening of. court Max
Lnddeman was called by the defense
and an attempt was made to impeach
the testimony of Farquer MdRae, by
showing through Mr. Luddeman that
the evidence he gave befo-e the
coroner's jury at the inquest was not
consistent with the testimony given
on the trial.. Mr. Luddeman was kept
on the witnei-s stand the greater por
tion of the afternoon, the attorney's
occupying considerable time in dis
cussing what quest'ons were admiss
able to ask witness. -
! Four more witnesseswere examined
by the defense Saturday evening, C.
D. Brown, W. E. Kemp, J. B. Moore,
and E. J. Glisan.
' The testimony of Brown and Glisan
was on minor points and did not have
much bearing" on the case. Moore
testified to having heard the quarrel
between Brogan and Forester ' and
Gum and Forester prior to the killing.
According to his testimony Brogan
and Gum were the aggressors.
: When court convened Monday morn
ingJohn Brown was called and testified
that Forester bamfl to where he was
working, about 12 or 15 miles from
Antelope, between 8 and 9 o'clock the
morning after the killing. He came
and went away on foot. He had
neither hat nor coat, and his face was
T. A. Howe testified to having heard
Brogan and Forester quarreling on the
streets in front of his shop during the
afternoon before the killing, and beard
Forester tell Brogan to "not crowd
blm too far or he would find out what
kind. of a coward he was" Brogan
was considerably nxclted at the time.
: T. S. Hamilton was next called and
stated that he and Slim . came to
Antelope together the afternoon be
fore the killing.

chair upper, most.
After Mr.' Kanabe had finished
giving his testlmony.Garret McCallum
was called who at the time of the
murder was across the street from
Silvertooth's saloon. He testified
that at the time he heard the noise of
a quarrel in Silvertooth's place he
looked across the street and saw a
chair move past a window as if in some
one's hands. He started to the scene
of. the trouble, and when about one
third of the way across be saw a man

He entered the saloon and recognized
