ditch in the evening, heard what

and he and S. II. Dorrancc went
to the .school house and carried the
organ back to the hull. Mr. Wieat
as superintendent of the .Sunday
school had the custody of the organ
in the hall, and as oliainann of the
school board he had Authority in the
school house. Hut the ieople in

school in the hall made out an in

was tried Wednesday before a jury
which (finally dtaftgrtiri. Another
trial of the cum ivm hud today.
The jury for the second trial was
composed of G. W. Triplett, Mil
lanl Triplett, Thomas TrifrfeU.
Charles Wclmer, Harney Lewis and
After the second trial of the case
against I.. D. Wluet and S. H.
Dorraucc the jury in 15 minutes
agreed upon a verdict of acquittal.
To satisfy one of the jurors the
recommendation was made that the
organ, that was found not to be
stolen, was rccouinieuded to be
tnken back to the school house.
The recommendation was the
subject of some discuMion, and
when Wicst and Dorrnucc came
out of the court room there was n
fight. Reputable and disinterested
bystanders who witnessed thesquab
blc say that J. K. II rock, the elder,
resenting an offensive remark of
Wicst, struck the latter in the face
and then came at him with an open
knife. Dorrnucc went to the aid of
Wicst and Hilly and lid and Charley
Hrock went after Dorrancc, who
sent them all reeling. Wiast reach
ed In his pocket for a handkerchief
and II. W. Heed and John Stcidl
and the Hrock s scut up the cry that
he had a gun and was nlxmt to
shoot. Then the constable was
called and Wicst insisted on being
searched on the sjwt. Not even a
penknife was found upon him.
When Constable Cottor interfered
Dorraucc had Hilly Hrock down
and was about to punish him.
When peace in the name of the law
was commanded Dorraucc ceased
and he and Wiest were taken into
custody. None of the others were.
Necessarily there was much con
fusion, but the foregoing is a brief
statement of the facts as nearly as
they can be obtained from trust
Finally Wiest was liberated nud
sent home under convoy of Billy
Hrock, Dorraucc was held under
$500 bond for assault and resisting
an officer. He will appear fbr hear
ing at Prineville.
Mr, Wiest has started proceed
ings against the elder Brock for as
sault with a dangerous weapon and
he and Dorraucc have authorized a
suit for $30,000 damages against
II. W. Reed, G. Schlecht, A. V.
Pope and others for malicious prose
cution. Attorney G. W. Barnes,
who represented the defense, in the
proceedings just concluded here,
will look after this matter,
Acting Constable Cottor 'served
ille warrant on Wicst and Dorraucc
at the mill Monday afternoon. The
defendants appeared lscforc Justice
Hrock in the evening and the case
wa set for trial Tuesday afternoon,
too soon for defendants to get
counsel and over their protest.
When the trial came on Mr. Wieat
did the beat he could representing
the defense and II. W. Reed ap
peared for the prosecution, which
was nominally at the instance of
. W. Pop. An application for
adjournment to permit the presence
of couiimI was promptly overruled
us. was an attempt to get change of
venue on account of prejudice of
the justice. The defense then de
manded a jury trirl. There were
several short adjournments, but the
day ended with five jurors in the
box and the "report went out that
four of them were for the Lytic
crowd and one not." The senile!,
however, showed that the Jury was
not so one-sided.
The work of filling the jury box
was resumed Wednesday morning,
Mr. Wicst then employing dilatory
tactics for a purpose that was made
plain when Attorney G. W. Barnes,
of Prineville, walked in about 1 1
o'clock and took charge of the de
fense. Prom that time on more
respect was given to the provisions
of the statutes ami "the way we
have been doing" was not the
governing factor in all questions
that arose, though rulings were
pretty uniformly against the de
fense. The complaint alleged the lar
ceny of ail organ "tb property of
II. W. Reed. W. A. LakHaw, A.
M. Drake ami others." The proof
submitted was to the effect that tbc
organ waa the property of the
school district and the Hcnd Union
Sunday school, which had custody
and XMsession of it. A number of
witnesses were produced to swear
they had contributed to the pur
chase of the organ, 25 cents to at
tend the entertainment that provid
ed part of the purchase fund, or
other contribution, and that their
understanding was that the organ
was for the the school district and
the Sunday school. The minqtcs
of the .school bo til were produced
in the cross-examination of Director
Cottor and he admitted the fact and
the truth of the entry made January

The defense called no witnesses,
relying on the alwense of proof of
the charge made by the information.
Not a jwrticle of proof of that
charee wns presented. The case
was submitted to a jury composed
of the following-named citizens:
John L. Kever, H. C. Low, John
Kidcr, Creed M. Triplett, Dudley
Mayfiekl and W. II. Stoats.
It was alleged that Mr. Stoats
had been summoned as a witness
for the prosecution before it was
known that u jury would be de
manded, and he did not deny it.
Hut he was held on the jury, not
withstanding, and swore to weigh
impartially the evidence presented.
At any rate, the first ballot of
the jury was five to one for acquit
tal. Subsequently, as a policy
move, the jury room report has it,
one other man voted with Staats
for conviction in order to pave the
way to aw agreement later. Hut
the agreement never came. After
being out all night the jury report
ed that it could not agree and was
Attorney Hames did not admit
that the charge in the ' information
was trivial. "It .is absolutely
idiotic", said he. "I never saw
anything like it in my life. This
fellow what's his name? went
there and got the organ,
WieM and Dorrnucc took it back,
as they undoubtedly had a right to
do. Thou this trumped up charge
is made and there fa not a shred of
evidence to support it Yet they
had il nil arranged to product) con
viction. No fair minded man
could be misled as to the motive
behind this. It will fail, of course,
but it is amazing that audi pro
ceedings should he attempted. The
jury was the only salvation in this
The statute fixes the limit of
value of the property aunen at 35
in order that a justice of the peace
may try and determine the matter.
If the value is greater than $35 the
justice has jurisdiction only to ex
amine and hold to the circuit court.
In this case the organ cost $60 or
more but the information was for
petty larceny, thus bringing the
case within the power of the justice
court to try and determine. And
by a judgment of fine not greater
than $20 or imprisonment not .more
than 10 days it would have been
impossible to appeal to a higher
court from an unjust judgment
here. What the programme was
may be inferred from this.
Low's hall served as a courtroom
for this trial, and there were plenty
of spectators. The weather Iwing
bad not much work was done on
the P. H. D. Co's ditch and most
of the men came down to the trial.
The crowd was much entertained
by the proceedings.

Commissioner Wardwell, of Silver

Bend. He left Sunday for Port
land, where he will enter a business
college for several months.
Tuesday night was the coldest of
the season thus far, mercury going
down to 9 above zero. But no
damage was done by the frost and
few people would have guessed the
temperature so low. Tuesday was
the first clear day for two weeks.
Little flurries of snow and mist
have marked the week's weather.
