., Tho defense of Thomas G. Smith,
a Klamath Indian on trial In tho fed
eral court, accused of tho murder of
a fellow tribesman, Link Itlver lleall,
will be self defense, and thnt death
was furthered by lack of medical
treatment, according to the opening
statements of his attorneys this morn
ing. The government will contend
thnt the crlino was premeditated.
Tho taking of testimony began this
morning, tho wife and son of tho
murdered man testifying. Tho evi
dence of tho wife, Isabella lleall, wns
given through tho interpreter, Thos.
Unrkdull. She testified regarding tho
quarrel, and the landing of tho fatal
blow with tho horseshoe. Tho son,
Thomas Reall, corroborated tho testi
mony of his mother.
It developed from tho testimony
that Smith, tho defendant, with a
number of Indians had been stopping
at tho Dealt homo for a month or so,
and thnt tho argumont thnt resulted
In the fatal row, whb born of tho ac
cusation that Smith had been drink
ing, lleall, tho witnesses said, was
admonishing Smith for his uso of in
toxicants. Then tho hot words flow,
lleall. though an old man over CO
years of ago, was of powerful phy
sique and over six feet tall, and when
he grasped Smith by the shoulder, tho
defense maintains tho defendant be
lieved his life to bo In danger, and
picked up the first handy weapon a
horseshoe Thoy also allego. that
Link River lleall was possessed of
nn ungovcrnablo temper. Tho de
fense will maintain that tho act of
Smith wns Justifiable.
Tho defendant, a young man, edu
cated In tho Indian training schools
showed no emotion, nnd seems to vlow
as a matter of fact his fight tor life.
