true with the evidence submitted

8hreives testined in their own be­
half. Taylor took the stand imme­
diately following the opening of
court, and for nearly an hour sub­
mitted to direct, cross and re-direct
cross and re-direct examination.
Following is the story he told to
the ju iy: “ I met Shreives in the
Idaho saloon about 6 o ’clock. I
had been working nearly all the af­
ternoon with Grant Robbins unload­
ing a car of ice. After meeting
Shrieves, we plsyed several games
o f cards together. It was Hayes
and Collier who suggested that we
visit the red light district This
happened while we were in the
“ Pastime.” 1 did not want to go,
but Shreives wanted to talk to me
about Oklahoma, and at last I
agreed to walk down with him.
Hares, Collier and Shreives had
been drinking considerable. It was
because I did not want to g o into
222 that started the fight. They
kept pulling and hauling me, until
I got ma<I I did not strike them the
first tiffie I made a pass at them,
but the second time I hit Hayes.
Collier was standing right bock of
me, with bis hands in his pocket.
Ididnot know whether he had a gun
or not, and as I thought he was go­
ing to do me harm, I hit him. The
blow was struok withmy left hand,
and my fielcame in contact with hm
face. I did not strike hard. He fell
back on the sidewalk, and then rolled
over on the ground. Hayes started
to run up town and I followed him
about 40 feet, but he was too fast
for me and I could not catch him.
When I returned Collier was sitting
up on the sidewalk. I wanted him
to go with us up town, but he would
not. Shrieves then said that Grace
Flimings had telephoned for the
police, and we Shreives and I , start­
ed up town. We met Joe Heath,
told him of the affair and then went
back. W hen we arrived at the cor­
ner o f ‘A ’ and Almond streets, Coll-
ier was not there."
■‘When you returned, were you
not afraid that Collier would ahoot
you?” asked the prosecution.
No, I did not think any more
about it.”
"Y ou say that Collier was close
to you when you struck him. Now
tell ua how you struck him.”
“ I turned partly around when I
struck him. It was more of a push
than a blow. Collier waa ro drunk
that he fell over. I do not believe
the blow knocked him down.” “ Did
you strike Collier • second blow?”
“ No, sir.”
“ After he fe!\ did yon or Shreives
kick, or otherwise beat him?”
