Matthews .vent to the McLennan ranch No vember 27 to look for his horses. Not finding the two he claimed, he went through MrLenn&n's pasture and found the carcasses of the horses with their heads cut off and the brands peeled. Matthews and five other men, including Gus Reader, deputy sheriff of Shaniko, searched the whole canyon in which the car casses were, unable to find either the heads of the horses or the brands. The theory of McLennan's de fence was that the branding and killing of the horses on his ranch was a "plant" by his enemies, Matthews and McLennan, ac cording to the evidence brought out in the case, have had an ill feeling for each other for the past 10 or 11 years, The state's evidence showed that McLennan and McDonald were seen driving a band of horses into the canyon on the af ternoon that the horses were suppose to have been killed. This evidence was given by Dave Wilson, who stated on the stand, the two defendants remained in the canyon for about fifty min utes. It was largely on the tes timony of Wilson that McLennan was found guilty. F. V. Galloway was attorney for McLennan and McDonald, and R. R. Butler was especially employed to assist District at torney W. A. Bell in the prose cution. The argumenta of both aides lasted from 10 o'clock yes terday morning until 3:30 in the afternoon. -Chronicle, May 27- a bin will cost $373 lajd down at The Dalles: " ' The cabbage "maggot seems to be 'doing' sonre" 'damage.
