   Redwood Journal Press-Dispatch (Newspaper) - September 27, 1950, Ukiah, California                                County At BoonviUe, September 29-30, October 1 ANCIENT HISTORY 1865 Tho Fouith or July iit Poller was ushered in wilh Ihe usunl Dmourit of anvil firing, bul Ihe advent of the Ihird, coming with un extraordinary amounl of Ihunder and lightning, seemed to bo a premonitory approval in advance. With 0 very small amount of conventionalism in the line of previous arrangements, the inhabitants assembled and the exorcises of the day opened by a very excellent and appropriate prayer by Rev. P. W. Vann. Then came tho refreshment a more than ordinary oration by D. H. Trout of Ukinh, in which he sketched wilh a masterly hand the history of our common country, Its rise and progress from its first discovery until the present period, in a speech of an hour and a half in length. .      Then came dinner, which being '  a picnic, was constituted of voluntary fretwlll offerings, flowitig spontaneously from the boxes, baskets and wagons, until the table literally   groaned   with  its  ponderous load of luxuries and delicacies, as well as the fat of the L  land. The cloth  relng removed, p toasts   were  read,  among   them being one to Our Three Boxes: /���The ballot box, jury box and cartridge box; each one in its proper place, and at tho proper time." -Mendocino Herald, Ukiah, July 14, 18C5. For some days past we have had exceedingly hot weather for this time of the year. Wednesday the thermoYnoter stood at 106 in the shade. In the sun it went to 130 . . . We understand that tho road from Little Lake to Big River will be completed and ready for teams in about two weeks which will be of groat advantage to the people of Little Lake, Sherwood and Long valleys, and will open a market for their produce much nearer than Petaluma.-Mendocino Herald, Ukinh, August 17, 1866. Our p.i.o.p.b. man brings in the rumor of a partly used fortune teller's license which has been shelved sinco the seer found she was unable to forecast her own fortune, which, says the rumor, she was augmenting by traffic in dope. Senator McBumblc says: If votes wont only by talk I guess Jimmy'd win in a walk. I Now wo have reports of two dogs, shot to death and hidden in the shrubbery where they died. For tho dog poisoner we have always advocated a dose of his own medicine. For this now typo of outrage we feel the same way. All we understand of millinery for fall from reading the Counter-Spy is tliat a hat is a hat is a hat. Poller Valley also has a hot-rod complaint, which apparently they dntend to do something about, and October 17 a meeting will bo hold in Grange hall, open to the public, when they will lay it on the lino. Maybe Ukiah slviuid send a listener? This is one time wo don't advise putting your money on the Brown Bomber, having a feeling that his retirement will be made permanent tonight. These early morning fires in the residential districts bring out a varied assortment of dressing gowns of attracUve designs, full of women whose attractiveness could bo enhanced by design. For reducing the waistline wo recommend frequent   fast   rides -(Continued on Page 3)- A combination of THE REDWOOD JOURNAL, PUBLISHED AT UKIAH, CALIFORNIA .

VOLUME XXII UKIAH, MENDOCINO COUNTY, CAIMFORNIA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1950 - _ FOURTEEN PAGES NUMBER 69 9 Bands to Spark Big Parade Burgess Takes Witness Stand By Joan Fraser Carl Burgess, first witness for tho defense, and defendant in the manslaughter charge in the death of Deputy Sheriir William White, testified that Deputy White fired the lirsl shot and that shot was the one that wounded Burge.ss on the night of April 29, at th Burgess ranch. Mr. Burgess staled that he was standing in the open in the bright moonlight when Deputy White, hidden in the bushes, fired on him. Burgess testified that before any shots were fired he saw a figure of a person hiding in the brush and called out, "Come out wc have you covered." Burgess told Kelly of seeing the figure. Kelly at that time was about eight feet from Burgess. Burgess stated that the person jumped deeper into the brush and fired. Burgess put his hand to his back, felt the blood and returned the fire. The firing continued between the two men and Burgess testified that he heard a couple of shots go over his left shoulder. Burgess then walked back to the house. He testified that when his statement, given to Deputy Barlolomio in the ambulance, was read in court he had no memory of the questions answered nor did he recall being taken into the hospital. Dr. J. B. MassengiU had previously testified OP the witness stand that Burgess "was fully conscious" at the hospital up to tho time the anesthetic was administered. Prosecution Reiti The prosecution rested at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. Attorneys McGettigan and Mall-atratt, in behalf of their clients, made a motion that the evidence presented was insufficient to warrant a jury in returning a verdict of guilty and asked tho court to so instruct the jury. Judge Gib.son denied the motion. Suggestive testimony runs through the Burgoss-Kelly trial. Sheriff Croii-Examined Under cross examination by the defense, Sherlft B. G. Broaddus was interrogated on his knowledge of the exact location of Game Warden Heryford at the time of the shooting on the Burgess ranch or just before. Carl Burgess testified that he heard sounds like someone walking through the trees, just before shooting; and he heard the gate shut where that road enters the Burgess ranch. The gate and road are in the opposite direction to the location of the shooting that night. "Where Is That Paper" In cross examining Mrs. Burgess, District Attorney James E. Bu.sch asked the witness whether as the ambulance was taking Carl Burgess from the ranch, she recalled this conversation with John Kelly in the presence of Mr. Roul-stcn, driver of the ahbulance. Tho conversation as stated by the District Attorney was; "Where is that paper." and John Kelly answered, "I burned it." Mrs. Burgess replied, "That is good.'-' Mrs. Burgess explaingd that she hhd asked John Kelly to sit do
