SHOT BY HIRED JUAN
B. F. Zeli Murdered by
AUDI: NO ATTEMPT TO fiSCAPfi
A Respected Rnnclter Living 20 Allies
Ilaiit of Hen'J Killed In n Cold-
I, F. Zcll, a rancher living about
20 miles cast of Rend, was shot
and almost instantly killed by Fred
Shepherd, his hired man, last
Monday morning at about 4:30
o'clock. Shepherd made no at
tempt to escape, and was taken
into custody by the ofTiccrs when
they arrived. He is now held in
tlie county jail at Princville,
awaiting the action of the grand
Shepherd went into the room
where Mr. and Mrs. Zeli were
sleeping about 4:30 o'clock in the
morning, carrying a 40-65 rifle, and
three pieces of rope, one about 25,
one six and one three feet long.
He awakened the two sleepers and
ordered them to throw up their
hands. Instead of complying, Zeli
snrang from the bed and ran out a
door on the optxjsitc side of the
room from where Shepherd entered,
starting for the stable on the run.
As he ran Shepherd fired at Zcll
but missed him. As Zeli sprang into
the barn, he yelled to ''Dakota,"
another workman who was sleeping
in the stable, saying that Shepherd
was after him trying to murder
him. He then ran on through the
barn and as he emerged on the oth
er side Shepherd fired again, strik
ing Zeli in the back on the right
side, who run a few steps before
Shepherd then turned his alien
tion to Mrs. Zcll, whom he picked
up, carried into the house and
assaulted. Mrs. Zeli, left power
less in the hands of the big burley
brute, begged him to shoot her also
but he refused. When he desisted
from his ficudish work she got him
to help her carry her dead husband
into the house, telling him thut they
would lay the crime on "Dakota."
She then started for Haswcll-Gueriu
ranch, distant about two miles. Ar
riving there she found Mrs. W. IS.
Wilson, their woman cook and
young Reynolds. She told her
awful story,' and young Reynolds
started to the Johnston ranch for
help. He awakened George Hobbs
ami t, won auu toiu ms Mory,
whereupon these two men ran their
horses on the dead run to the Zeli
In the meantime, as soon as the
shooting began, "Dakota" had
started for help to the ditch camp
about a mile and a half distant and
with four of the ditch workers re
turned post haste to the Zeli ranch.
They reached the place only 11 few
moments before Ilobbs and Wolf
The men found Shepherd calmly
standing around, having changed
his clothes and removed the blood
stains from his person, received
when carrying Zeli into the house.
He made no attempt to escape but
tried to lay the shooting onto
"Dakota." But vhen Mrs. Zeli
returned she soon, pointed out the
The men then bound him and he
was taken to the Johnston ranch
where he was held until Sheriff
Elkins arrived. The sheriff had
been notified as soon as the tele
phone offices were opened. He
brought with him Dr. Charles
Udwards and District Attorney
Bell. An inquest was h e 1 d,
the verdict of the jury being that
Zoll received his death wound from
a gun in the hands of Fred Shep
herd. Shepherd was takeu to
Princville and lodged in jail, wav
ing examination, The circuit court
convenes Oct, 15, wheu his case
Will probably come up for trial.
An examination showed that the
ball entered the back of the mur
dered man on the right side quite
low down, passed through uitn and
came out on the left side. Jle
must have bled to death very soon
as a main artery was severed.
Shepherd is a man 23 years old
and a large, powerful fellow. It is
generally admitted by those who
know him that he is not quite
right mentally, that there is Bomc
thing "queer" with his head. It
is ulso reported that he and Zcll
were not on the best of terms, he
having objected to different ones to
the manner in which Zcll wanted
the work done on the ranch.
On the other hand, Mr. Zeli was
a man some 40 years of age and
was respected by all. He owns 80
acres of ditch land near Powell
Ruttcs and bad a homestead ad
joining. He was a prosperous
rancher, a hard worker, and one
who evidently understood his busi
ness. He was born and raised in
this county, being the son of A.
Zeli of Princville, who came to
Crook county many years ago.
Stories arc told that prove his un
doubted honesty and uprightness.
That such a man should be aroucd
from his night's rest and cruelly
murdered and his helpless wife
outraged by a monstrous brute b
appalling. The community is
shocked and the feeling is very
bitter- against Shepherd.
Mrs. Zcll is the daughter of a
pioneer family and is held in the

buys Line Running from Princville
The Deschutes Telephone Com
pany has just recently purchased
the telephone line running from
Princville to O'Neil, formerly
known as Forest. This line was
built and owned by O'Neil Bros.
It will soon be connected with the
Deschutes company's lines and
direct service will be inaugurated
from Bend Ho O'Neil.
Many rural phones will be con
nected with this line and the
ranchers living between Prineville
and O'Neil will soon enjoy the
privilege of a phone iu their resi
dence. Twelve ranchers have al
ready bargained for them aud H.
C. Kill's was in that section the
first of the week putting in some
of the new phones.
To celebrate the acquisition of
the new line, next Saturday service
from Bend to O Neil will be free to

WAS GREAT SUCCESS
Redmond Fair Has Many
A SURPRISG TO EVERYBODY
.Much Favorable Comment Heard Re
garding the Quality'nnd Variety
of Agricultural Displays.
Since the beginning of reclama
tion work jn the upper Deschutes
valley, nothing haa so fully demon
strated what this soil can do as did
the fair at Redmond last week.
The exhibit of grains, vegetables
and grasses were of such unques
tioned merit that even the men who
have helped till the soil and pro
duce the crops were surprised when
they saw the numerous exhibits
gathered at one place and making
one grand showing. Practically
everything in the vegetable and
grain line that grows in a temperate,
climate was there represented, fine,
firm potatoes weighing two pounds
each, 90 pound squashes, cucum
bers, canteloupcs, watermelons,
tomatoes, beets, egg plant, parsnips,
cabbage, onions, kail, field corn
matured with stalks 8j4 feet high,
wheat, barley, oats, alfalfa, vetch,
etc., etc. from all parts of Western
Crook and with a fine showing of
apples, peaches, pears, grapes,
prunes and English walnuts from
The ladies showed their interest
by exhibiting many pretty and
dainty articles of fancy work and
also many things in the culinary
line. Then there was also a good
showing of live stock poultry,
cattle, horses and swine. The ex
hibits made a fine showing for a
new country and for the first fair
ever held in the western part of the
There have been those who have
prophesied that tomatoes could
not be grown in Western Crook,
neither could cucumbers, beans and
other tender vegetables. Such
prophesies were proven false as one
stood before samples of these vege
tables and saw how well they grew,
large ripe tomatoes, long green
cucumbers, big watermelons and
canteloupcs. The samples of
wheat, oats, barley, etc. demon
strated that grain would not 'only
grow but that it would produce n
heavy yield per acre.
The fair opened Thursday, when .
the exhibits were gotten together
and placed. Friday the visitors
began to arrive aud a program of
races and sports was given. In
the eveuiug a farmers' institute wnaTN,
held at which Dr. James Withy
combe, of the Oregon agricultural
college, and Prof. A. L- Knisely,
chemist of the Oregou experiment
station, spoke. Dr. Withycombe
said that the chief industries of
this section in the agricultural line
would be dairying, sugar produc
tion from beets, aud the manufac
ture of denaturized alcohol for fuel
and power purposes from potatoes.
Prdfessor Kinsely spoke on alkali
lands and their treatment. Other
speakers of the evening were F. S.
Stanley and and Jesse I. Stearns of
the D. I. & P. Co. A chorus of
several voices gave some very
Saturday was the big day in at
tendance, many ranchers and
visitors from neighboring towns
being present. More races and sports
helped to amuse the crowd. The
fair closed in the evening with a
grand daucc, with music by n,
