Considerable surprise was caused when at the opening of the court Ir- vine Holt pleaded guilty to the theft of four steers from A.-D. Bull; to the theft of one steer from one Watson; and to the theft of two steers from a German settler named Louis Selway also pleaded guilty to the theft oi two steers frc-m Ulriek- son.
