The body of Earhart is at present
at Case's Undertaking Parlors in
Heppner. Mr. Case said- yesterday
that he had communicated with one of
Earhart's brothers in the east and
that if he did not hear before night
i"rom another brother in Baker,' the
funeral would be held today. If he
heard from Baker the body would be
held until tomorrow.
Visitors to the fair, townspeople and I
all in Heppner were shocked Satur
day evening when the word was pas
sed from lip to lip that a man had
been killed on the main street. The
crowds surged towards the spot in
front of the Palace Hotel where the
tragedy had occurred and where the
dead body of Chas. A. Earhart lay
on the sidewalk. Some said it was
murder, others said it wa9 self-defense.
Walter Cason, field deputy of
Sheriff Evans, and who is also city
marshal of lone, was the man who
fired the fatal shot and when officers
arrived on the .spot he said, "Here's
his gun and here's mine, I shot in self
' defense." He was immediately taken
into custody by the officers and a
hearing was given him at the office
of District Attorney Wells. After the
hearing he agreed with the officers to
remain in their custody and was taken
to the court house where he spent
Saturday and Sunday nights in jail.
Coroner Chick was notified of the
tragedy and ordered Justice Cornett
to proceed wit hthe inquest. Justice
Cornett selected the following jury:
Geo. Currin, Frank Gilliam,Wm. Bar
ratt, M. D. Clark, W. O. Minor and
vnas. ihompson. I he inquest was
held at the Court House beginning at
11 a. m. on Sunday.
Walt Cason was the first witness
called. He opened his remarks to the
jury with the statement that he acted
in self defense. He said Earhart
came up the street within a few feet
of him and remarked, "Walt, it is all
off." Mr. Cason testified that Ear
hart then drew his gun and fired one
shot. He (Cason) then shot once or
twice ana attempted to rush at Ear
t hart. He grabbed Earhart'sgunbe
. fore he could fall to the ground. " He
testified that a few -seconds later
Marshal McCraw arrived and he turn
ed both guns over to him. Mr. Cason
said he had not Bpoen to Earhart
that day. He had seen him throught
the window at Robert's saloon earlier
in the evening.
Hugh Rourke, who testified that he
was standing about ten feet from the
parties, said he heard three shots but
couldn't tell who fired them. He saw
no (runs. He heard no talk prior to
the shooting.
Marshal McCraw was the next wit
ness called. He testified as follows
he heard shots, two or three, and ran
as fast as he could to the scene; he
saw Earhart on the walk and Cason
was standing: Cason handed him both
guns', he did not examine the guns but
turned them over to Sheriff Evans
little later; he had Warned Cason
earlier in the evening not to "rib" up
anything with Earhart; he did not see
Cason pick up the small gun; he did
not see a gun about Earhart at any
Sheriff Evans said that about ten
minutes before the shooting Earhart
came into Searcy's pluce and appeared
very nervous. When he heard the
shooting he ran for the scene. The
balance of his testimony was practi
cally the'same as McCraw's.
Mr. Cason at this time identified
the larger of the two guns as being
Frank Roberts said that about seven
o'clock he saw Mr. Cason standing
outside the Rock Saloon and that he
feared trouble. He said he told Ear
hart thnt if there was about to be I
trouble he didn't want it to happen in !
his place. A little later Earhart left
and went u pthe street. Mr. Roberts
testified that he then went and warned
the marshal that he expected trouble
between the two men. He said that
Cason stood In front of his place
somewhere lietween half hour and
n hour. Cason was not inside the
saloon that day that he knew of.
Earhart bought another party drink
during the evening but took cigar
himself. Mr. Roberts did not know
whether Earhart was armed or not,
nd Earhart had not said anything to
him about any trouble pending. Mr.
Roberts didn't think he had ever seen
Earhart have gun.
Heputy Sheriff McDuffee said that
he ordered the liody taken to Case's
undertaking parlors. He saw Mr.
Case remove the clothing and saw him
take the various articles from his
rlothing and examined the wound
He said he and Mr. Case took almut
dozen cartridges from the clothes,
Mr. McDuffce at thla point opened
the small revolver and compared the
bullets found in Earhart's clothing
with those in the revolver. They were
identical. I Mr. McDuffet said he
picked up the revolver ball that fell
from the wound. He said that an
abrasion on the frotil of Earhart's
head aoemed to have been made by
either the fall or a blow.
Guy ( anon said that he was stand
ing at the comer hy the Palace Hotel
talking with his fa .her and that hi
father had tM him he was going to
stay clear of Earhart if he rnuld.
Just a)oul that time they aaw Ear
hart, alone, coming up the street to
ward them. He testified that Ear
hart pulled nut hi gun jut a he
rims even with them and said. "Well,
Walt, the game t on, and
Earhart then fired at his father. He
said his father sidestepped and fired.
we man t know whether or not the
two men had met prior to that dur
ing the day. He couldn't tell whether
Earhart was struck by his father or
not. He said his father attempted to
rush at Earhart as he fired. He
testified that Earhart held, his arm
just above his waist as he shot. He
didn t know how many shots were
fired. He did not see the gun taken
away from Earhart but saw his
father have it a few seconds later. He
testified that when Earhart fell he
(Guy) took hold of his father and held
him and that his father moved only
a toot or so. he said Earhart only
groaned after the shooting.
Ed. Case of Lone Rock testified that
he was sitting on the steps at the
south side of the hotel and that he
heard men quarreling but didn't know
who they were or where they were
at and for all he Knew they might
have been across tfie street. There
was a small space between the first
shot and the rest, he a:J. lie heard
one man call another a liar. Both
reports from the guns sounded about
the same he said.
M. L. Case said that he removed all
the clothes and personal effects from
the body. He found some money anu
about a dozen cartridges. The wounc'
was that of a rine ball, he said, and
entered at the right side, passing
through the heart and out the left
side below the shoulder blade. Mr
Case said he understood that Earhart
was on his back when his brother ar
rived to move the body. He said the
cartridges were partly in one pocket
and partly . in . another pocket of
Eafharts overalls." -v v
Rile; Miller said tKrt ha'came down
from the direction of the Brewery
saloon with Mr. Earhart a few
minutes before the 6hooting and that
Earhart told him he had better go tht
other way 83 he (Earhart) might
have trouble. Mr. Miller didn't know
whether or not Earhart had a gun.
W. U. Newlon was coming up the
street and was about even with the
steps in front of Woodson's office
when he heard a shot fired, and then
two more shots. He said he did not
see one man strike at the other -as
he fell. He said the two men were
standing a little way from the tree at
the corner, near the edge of the side
walk. He noticed no difference in the
sound of the shots. He saw no flash
from the first shot and couldn't tell
where the shots came from.
Dr. Allison testified that death war
Instantaneous and that the dead man
could not have lived over 30 seconds,
as the bullet passed through his heart
The jury adjourned for dinner and
resumed their session at the office of
the District Attorney. They brought
in a verdict to the enect tnat unas.
A. Earhart came to his death from a
pistol bullet from the hands of Wal
ter Cason.
Monday about noon a steady stream
of autos poured into the city from
lone and it seemed as though nearly
every grown person from that place
would soon be in Heppner. At 2:SC
a large number of friends, headed by
A. E. Johnson went in the direction o'
the jail where Mr. Johnson demands
from Sheriff Evans the release of Mr
Cason. As there had been no com
plaint iworn out agninst Cnsnn by
private prosecutor, his release wap
given forthwith and he lert tne jail ir
the arms of his friends. A waiting
auto at the foot of the steps bore
him homeward and he arrived at lone
an hour later.
The score between Earhart and
Cason is an old one and generally
quite well .known to most of out
readers. On July 3, 1008, Earhnrt in
a fit of drunken rage, caused by what
he considered just grievances, pro
ceeded to "shoot un the town" during
the celebration. He wounded differ
ent partis and was finally wounded
himself. He gave himself up and
was brought by Mr. Cason, who war
an offices at that time, to Heppner
On the way here, he threatened Cason
saying that if he lived to return he
would shoot him and burn the town
over his head. These words were
heard by Mr. J. T. Knappenlierg.
Other parties informed IVon that
Earhart had made similar threats in

Lawson said that they wanted to be
placed on our Portland list as they
couldn't get along without the Herald.

One of the most masterly addres
ses ever heard in Heppner was made
by Hon. R. A. Booth, candidate tor
United States Senator on the Republi
can ticket on Friday of Fair Week.
It was delivered before the pioneers
who had gathered from all parts of
the country. Mr. Booth's, pr.ren
were pioneers of Oregon and his ad
dress was especially well received by
many who are acquainted with him
and his parents, the following ex
tract was his appreciation of the work
of the pioneer and the duty which de
volves upon the present generation.
"My knowledge of the pioneer does
not come from historians' records or
the romancers' talcs. I know them.
They were and are my kin. The first
thought of protection that came to mo
was suggested by the tender care of a
pioneer woman. The first emotion of
my heart was born in response to her
affection and in the years that have
lince followed there has come to me
no impluse more noble than the one
to make more restful, more cheerful
the declining years of that woman.
"The words that I now speak are for
the purpose of kindling a flame in
lome heart that will make some work
weary pioneer mother more happy.
Out beneath the Bunny skies of South
im Oregon a granite shaft bears the
name of that pioneer woman. Moth
ers of Oregon forgive me for speak
ing in a manner in any sense personul
to myself. I do it because there is
no other way in which 1 can convey
to you the regard, the reverence 1
have for you, for what I have said of
my mother can he Ba:d also of you.
Praise of Works Well Done.
What you have given your chil
Iren, your country, your race, the
world, is beyond all words to describe.
uch acts can never again come to
any people. There is no more WeHt;
.here are no more new worlds to sub-
be; there is no other prize so valu.
iblc, no other hands able to perform,
io other hearts so strong and true.
"It is left for us of a later genera
tion to ennoble the work of the
pioneers by transmitting the heroic
character and integrity of purpose
that they possessed to those who come
after. To do less is to be unworthy of
a place in the line of trasmission and
a blot on their memory. What they
jougni with their lives and service has
been delivered only in small part, for
out oi tne coming years will be an
everlasting increasing heritage to all
whose feet stand upon Oregon land
and whose hunds labor for its de
velopment." Judge William Galloway delivered a
stirring speech before the Pioneers
last Friday on the Fair grounds.
Judge Galloway was born of Pioneer
parents and most of what he snid he
drew from his own experience in the
early days of the state. His speech
started by a tribute to the women
present. The women who hod strug
gled and sacrificed and born their part
in the work of making homes in the
new and unsettled country of the
West. The one grtat mistake which
those pioneers made was when they
framed the State Constitution they
forgot to give the women the right to
vote. But two years ago the sons of
the pioneers struck out the word male
before the word citizen in the State
Constitution and the law now allows
both men and women to vote in the
same manner. Women, he declared,
had always been equal to men. On
the plains when the father was struck
dead with the fever or killed by the
Indians, the mother mounted the wag
on and whip in hund drove the oxen
across and to Oregon. Women are
now enjoying all the rights and pri
vilcges the same as men and rightly
so. The speech concluded with two
or three incidents taken from his
own experience showing the hard
ships encountered by the Pioneers and
explained to the younger people pres
ent that we owe a great debt of grati
tude to the Pioneers.
The Second Annual Morrow County
Fair has passed into history. Judged
by any standard that you may please
to choose, it was a revelation to the
moat optomistic concerning its ultim
ate success. For three days thous
ands of people viewed the exhibits of
every conceivable order or kind and
everywhere were expressions of won
lor and amazement heard. The result
which this fair will have in demon
strating that nearly everything can
be grown here and improving quality
and yield of ordinary products grown
iiere will be far-reaching for good. It
.vas an advance over last year's exhi
bition in nearly every particular. This

the exhibits and also amusement fea

In the main pavilion there were
eleven booths arranged on the north
and south sides. The first booth on
the south side was tho Singer Sewing
.uucnine display, in it were two sew
ing machines running by electricity
and one of them was a center of at
traction as it wus muking funck work
if various kinds.
The second booth was Case Furni
ture Company's display of furniture.
Andy Rood and Jim liuddlestnn were
anxious onlookers here as there vas a
lign rending, "You furnish the girl
and we'll furnish the home."
The third booth contained the Chil
dren's display. These represented
the effort of children under fourteen
years of age. At the front of the ex
hibit at both ends and in the middle
were large sunflowers, fourteen feet
high. On the table in front were
cukes and small vegetables of nil
kinds. Un the west wall were a few
samples of fancy work and a bird
age, well made. Along the back
were arranged flowers of many kinds,
canned goods, fruits, vegetables.
Trains, jellies and manual truinimr
vurk consisting of stands, tables and
other pieces. On the east wall were
lozens of sewing exhibits consisting
of all kinds of garments, many ot
them which would make many grown
ups hustle to excell.
The Children's exhibit was one of
'ho main attractions of the entire
'air. One of the fair directors said

In the next booth was the Irrigon
display. Irrigon was well represented
both in this display and in the fancy
work, having over two hundred in tho
lptter display. On the table in front
were boxes of dried peaches, boxes of
almonds, also pumpkins, corn, melons,
turnips and ground cherries, all blue
ribbon products and examples of fruit
raisers who have mixed brains with
dirt. Along the back were some of
the finest boxed apples ever displayed
in a Morrow County Fair and what
will compare favorably with any
grown in any state. Grapes and
peaches of every kind were here in
abundance and canned goods of all
kinds. One row of peaches on trays
had six blue ribbons in the seven
trays. Above the display in the back
was the word IRRIGON made of
white grapes with blue grapes as a
background, a commendable piece of
The Irrigon display was or.e of the
most attractive and most commented
exhibits on the grounds. The fruit
shown was well -displayed and the
quality was pronounced by the judgss
and men informed on fruita to second
to none. Some of this fruit so im
pressed the business men that a great
deal of the credit of their intention to
send it to the State Fair and the Land
Show goes to the Irrigon people. Irri
gon won the prizes for tne best
Community and the best Fruit ex
hibits. Mr. and Mrs. Rondruck were
in charge of the booth and they are old
hands at the job. Both are experienc
ed fruit judges and come In for a
large share for Irrigon s success.
The last booth on the south side
wus the Minor exhibit. This exhibit
without question was one of the atel
ier attractions and centers of interest
during the three days of the fair. On
the table in front were pumpkins,
citrons, egg plants, grapes, onions,
pop corn, field corn, potatoes of sev
eral kinds and nine varities of apples.
Arranged above these on the table
were over seventy-five Jars of canned
fruita and vegetables of all kinds.
These were taken from the Minor eel
lurs and not prepared for exhibit pur
poses. One of the Interesting articles
were the jellies. These were made by
Mrs. Tom Pcttijohn on one of tho
Minor ranches south of town and had
they beon entered individually for rib
bons they would have walked away
with many firsts. The canned goose
berries, one of Oscar's favoritea, were
mistaken for olives and various other
things. The canned beans, peas,
plums, pickles, tomatoes, are what the
Minor's put up for their sheep ranch
es, over 1400 Jars being placed tn the
cellars this year.
In tho back of the display and on
the west wall were the grains and
grasses, over 125 kinds in all, and a
more comprehensive idea of what will
crow and to advantage in Morrow
County could not be gained elsewhere.
These were far superior to the general
county exhibit in the quality and
quantity of the yield, as was remark
ed by the many people who examined
them CHrefully. One can hardly ima
gine that there were over 75 different
kinds of grasses alone which theno
brothers have been testing and grow
ing, (nuns of all kinds were here
in profusion. Mr. Booth wa greatly
imnressed with the gruin and grns i
exhibit and remarked in glowing
terms of the Minor display.
On the east side was a wire rage
in which were Severn! Chinese, (iold
ami Silver pheasants which attracted
riu. h attention. Above thi wa a
beautiful floral display made by plac
ing the stem of flower in bottle.
A swntstika design wa made of pur

doi.enp of vnritie of dahlie and a

the display.
A table wa placed in front of the
exhibit to rare for the rooking ex
