when Koran entered his offlc the
evening of February 12. He showed
bow he himself leaped behind his
own desk for protection, obtained the
second gun and returned the legisla
tor's fire.
First Shot Dropped Foe
His own first shot, he declared,
dropped Horan Into a chair. Horan
fell forward to the floor with the sec
ond. Manning said he fired at random
from a position on the floor.
Horan's shots struck a chair and a
bookcase.
Attorneys for. both the state and
defense conducted arguments In the
privacy of the Judge's chamber rela

termlne the clearness of Manning's
recollection on the Saturday and
Sunday before the shooting,
George Roberts, Manning's counsel,
was upheld In the contention It was

but could shoot with either. He said
he held his weapon In his right hand
when he fired at Horan.
Ilorun Right Handed
Horan, whom the state said was
right handed but whom the defense
said was almost equally proficient
with his left, was found with a gun
'clutched in his left hand.
Manning was noticeably Indefinite
In his replies to state questioning. He
said the excitement of the events and
the horror of the tragedy completely
upset him.
He said it was Impossible for him
to state aocumtely distances of ob

homicide or his own positions and
those of Horan,
. KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.. April 25.
A quarrel and fatal gun battle In his
office February 12 was described to
tha Jury late yesterday by Horace M.
Manning who Is charged with first
degree murder of State Representa
tive Ralph W. Horan.
You're paying entirely too much
attention to my personal affairs and
you're telling lies about me" Man
ning said Horan shouted at him.
Manning said he had counseled
Horan to be more temperate for the
sake of his wife who was in poor
health.
Manning said, he prepared to leave
( the office to end the climatic argu
' inent In which Horan accused him of
circulating stories about htm and
calling him a crook. But as he start
ed to leave he saw Horan grab a re
volver from the desk beside which he
had been seated.
- As Horan backed away Manning
grabbed the other revolver from the
drawer, stooped behind the desk and
then raised his hand and took a
blind shot after Horan had shot
twice, he related. The shot asnerted
ly knocked Horan backward Into the
chair opposite Manning's desk and
the latter raised and fired a second
shot.
Horan toppled to the floor, kicked
convulsively, gasped and then was
silent, Manning said.
A beautiful exhibit la on display in
the window of the chamber of com
merce this week by the makers of
Alpine Milk. In connection with the
display, some interesting Information
was divulged today by the Timber
Products company. The manufactur
ers of Alpine Milk have, during the
past eight years, spent over" (300,000
in Medford for box shocks. It is
pointed out by officers of the Tim
ber Products company that this la
equivalent to 3,600,000 boxes which
Is equal to 8 train loads of 60 cars
each. By making their purchases at
the local box factory, the makers of
Alpine Milk have contributed a great !
deal towards the industrial develop
ment of this city, as the huge pur
chases which have been made during
the past eight years have been re
sponsible for the employment of a
large number of men. It was pointed
out by chamber of commerce officials
that this Information Is particularly
appropriate this week, during the
state-wide celebration of "Oregon
Products Days," and it Is believed
that Medford citizens will be ex
tremely surprised to learn that one
firm alone has spent such a huge
sum with the local box factory.
Citizens are invited to Inspect the
window which is attractively arranged.
