DOG KILLER JUMPS BAIL
J. T. StoVall, Arraigned (or Canl
clde. Flee the Stat.
Seldom has a small affair created a
greater sensation than has the dog
shooting case which ocurred last Fri
day. The principals iu the case were
J. T. Stovall, a sewing machine
agent, and a little shepherd dog, the
property of R. E. Barrickman of Mer
lin. The fracas started, according
to the statements of by stauders, in
Stovall's going closer to Barrickmau's
w-agon than the dog thought proper.
Tho dog growled and Stovall kicked
at her. She retaliated by soUing the
bottom of his trousers leg iu her
teeth, inflicting a wonnd in the ex
tremity of the garment about the size
of a silver dollar. This infuriated
Siovull, who attacked the dog with
stones from the street The owner of
the dog, seeing Stovall with a big
frock poised iu his grasp, apparently
about to blot the small cauiue of the
faco of the earth with it, warned him
to desist. Stovall dropped the lock,
but, smarting under the injury to bis
lacerated trousers, rushed off to
Rotcruiuud's store, his agency head-
quarters, procured a small rifle, came
back aud shot the dog from the edge
of the sidewalk iu front of the express
office, the dog being iu the Btreet only
few feet distant from the end of
the gun barrel. The ballet took effect
iu the after part of the dog's ribs,
ust below the backbone aud the'
wounded animal was the object of a
good deal of sympathy as it lay by its
owner's wagon. A citizen who
witnessed the performance said to
Stovall, "You ought to be arrested."
Stovall ridiculed the idea, saying
that he had money enough to bay up
half the town. Tho citizen went in
search of tho marshal and meanwhile
warrant for Stovall's arrest was
placed in tho hands of the constable.
Stovall returned tho gun to the
tore, triumphantly remarking that
lie had "dxiid him." Hy the time
tlie nllicers reached tho scene, Stovall
was not to bo found. He was ar
rested later however aud placed under
bonds of 1 ,"0 to appear before the
ircnit court on Saturday. The bonds
were furnished by N. E. McGruw aud
Dennis H. Stovall, who claims no
lationship to the defendant in the
case. Stovall was brought be r ore the
court Saturday afternoon aud entered
i plea of guilty, making a glib ad
dress to the court for a lenient sen
tence. Tho jndgo read the penalties
which the law imposes and Stovall
discovered that they were of far
greater severity than ho had antici
pated. He was given the opportunity
to change his plea, but d filled at the
time to lit it stand and was in
structed to uppeur before tho court at
the evening session for sentence. At
that time ho had decided that he
would change his plea to "not guilty"
aud this he was allowed to do. His
trial was set for Monday morning.
On Monday uiornng when the case
was called, no defendant appeared.
It had transpired that ho had "jump
ed his bail" and had taken Saturday
night's train for California, leaving
his bondsmen iu the lurch. His home
is said to bo iu Stockton and his
bondsmen are making a determined
effort to lecato him.
THE SILVER CREEK BASIN
Work Soon lo Be Resumed on
Bl Tunnel Enterprise.
F. G. Leigh was in town a few
days last week from Silver creek
where he is connected with the big
placer enterprise for opening the Sil
ver creek basin. The project is to
run a tunnel from a point below the
fulls to tap the creek basin abovo a
huge rock slide that has filled up the
former channel for ninny feet in
depth. The basin is several miles in
length and the gravet is of unknown
depth. Work ou the tunnel has been
usjiendcd over a year bat it is likely
that it will soon be resumed and
lushed to completion. Tho successful
completion of this tunnel would in
sure one of the biggest placer op

geueral consent this side is occupied
by a medley of city drummers, casual
passers, miners from tho gold fields,
strangers and single men of all de

youug folks, girls iu white dresses
aud streaming ribbons, littlo groups
of friends, young Indies accompanied
by gallant escorts trigged out in lin

leaning back iu their seats with self

beaux burnishing up their somewhat

Beneath the twinkling incandescent

heavy volume of smoke rolling from the

Ono of the fruits of the victory is the
undisputed championship of Southern
Oregon. The score was 5 to 2 In favor
of Grants Pass and all tho tallies
wero mnde in the first two Innings,
neither side scoring after the second
Iu tho first inning the Grants Pass
boys made three tallies and Ashland
got two men around tho diamond. In
tho second inning Grants Pass scored
twlco. The Grants Pass battery,
Welch aud Smith, did brilliant work,
Welch striking ont 11 men. Sparlin
gained glory for himself by his opera
tions at tho hat and made a hit every
time he handled the stick. The line
up was as follows:
Grants Pass Ashland

M Smith 2b
AfUir tho fourth inning, liu'ld was
retired by the umpire. M. Smith took
the shortstop's position, McKonxie
went to second and Murpny was placed
in the Held.
Rather a sensational incident oc
curred in tho fourth inning whan
Shortstop Pudd who took exception
to a closo decision by the umpire
Ashland's favor, was engaged by that
olliclal in buttle. Iludd was removed
from tho giiinu and Murphy was sub
stituted. Ouo of tho Ashland puisirs,
with characteristic unfairness, utilla-
es the incident to cast bshtsIoiis ou
tho Grants Pass team, insinuating
that tho hilligerent shorstop was
brought along for lighting purposes.
The records of tho previous games
will show that Iludd has been playing
shortstop for the Grants Puss nine all
the m ason and is one of tho strongest
players In tho team.
