ARE IN JAIL
Robert Leaventon, J.
Eades Charged With Murder in Modoc
Altckas, Cal., June 2.".
: ilicre liavc been no addition
al arrests in the Lookout
lynching alTair, siuee tlie in
eareeration of Le.i venton,
Hrown and Katies, who are
still in jail. Judin from
the actions of the ofTiccrs
there are no more to follow.
The three men arrested have
been considered the best cit
izens of the Lookout locali
ty. Robert Ix-aventon has
larje stock and land inter
ests near Lookout, and has
always been considered an
upright citizen and far from
a criminal. The sympathy
of the Lookout communit',
and in fact, a ood part of
Modoc county, seems to be
with the prisoners.
Spencer & Kaker have been
employed by the defendants,
ami G. F. Harris has also
been retained for the defense, j
YlIpiicVlT VJd VI .Ai? vtefe'e ;
to send some able counsel to
assist District Attorney Bon-;
ner in the prosecution. The
ease is oini to be hard
foujjht on both sides. The
date of the trial has not
been set, but it is presumed
there will be no delav in
bringing the case into court, j
The prisoners are taking
their arrest very coolly while
their friends have already
hesjim to prepare their de
fense. A young1 man named A. L.
Colburn, who gave some
damaging testimony before
the grand jury against the
prisoners became alarmed
last Saturday, and announc
ed that he was going to leave
the country. District Attor
ney Honncr had him placed
in jail to insure his presence
in court at the proper time.
Colburn, through his attor
ney, applied for a writ of ha
beas corpus, but the writ
was denied by the court.
It will be a hard matter to
procure a jury in this county
After The Fxaminer went to pre last
Wednesday night the Mitdoo grand jury
completed it investigation of the Look
out lynching. A dispat.'h to The Fx
auiinei', placed on our bulletin board at
the posiotTce, was to the effect that the
body returned three indictments for
murder. Hubert Ix'venton, James W.
lii'ow n and Isom Fades were the per
sons named. The indictment charge
these three men with the murder of
Martin Wilson, the thirteen-year-old
sou of Mary Wilson, the squaw who was
formerly the consort of Calvin Hall.
The evidence against the three indicted
men ia said to be much stronger iu the
case of Martin Wilsoit than in the case
of the other four lynched. The three
men were arrested Thursday by Sheriff
Street of Modoc w ho went to Lookout
after them. They offered no resistance
and were lodged in the Alturas jail with
