MEDICINE MAN'S
ACQUITTAL CLOSED
OLD MURDER CASE
RUBY. Doc. 1.?The rocent acquit*
1 tal at Fairbanks, of Old Toby, the
native "medlclno man." who hacl
boen on trial at two sessions of tho
court. Is tho ending, so far as legal
procedure Is concerned of a very re
markable case.
The Record Citizen said of tho case:
Old Toby Is an aged "medicine
man" whose habitat Is at the con
fluence of the Koyukuk and Yukon
rivers. Ho was very zealous In main
taining the powers and prerogatives
of his position as prophet and inter
preter of occult phenomonr..
Tho native peoplo gonerally fear
him?as much, perhaps, on account
of Ills obstreporousness as for his al
leged power to "make medicine." Be
tween htm and Julius, a lamo Indian,
there has long existed a feeling of i
distrust and scarcely concealed en-!
mlty.
At the Ruby term of court, 1914,'
the grand jury returned a true bill
charging Old Toby with murder, and
while on his way to Fairbanks to be
placed In the federal Jail ho and Old
Jimmy, another lower river Indian
similarly charged, both leaped from a
steamboat Into tho Tanana river, and
Old Jimmy was drowned.
Old Toby was flshed out and In due
j course h!s case camo up for trial at
Ruby, August 3, 1915. Ho was de
I fended by E. Coko Hill and Phil Gal*
iaher, and no better defonse was pos- j
i slble with the limited time afforded
for mastering tho Intricacies of the
I case, which was made more difficult
6y the fact that Old Toby and moBt |
of the other Indians were unable to
i speak English.
T..1I..M **.*, ., *\\n mfltn vlfnnflil frtr
the prosecution. Ho told how Old
Toby had followed an unknown whlto
man up from the mouth of the Kuy
ukuk In tho summer of 1905, how the
witness had heard shots and seen n
big smoke; and how later, tho witness
had found where the whlto man's
I boat had been burned in a hole in the
sand and with a paddle had uncover
|ed burnt human flesh and bones.
The story told by Julius was re-'
markable for detail. Notwithstanding
the lapse of nine years, he replied to
questions about seemingly tribal cir
| cumstances with a readiness that car
ried conviction to aomo and suspicion
to others. He was never evasive,
never self-contradictory, aad the se
quence of his itory establishes his
? rank as genius either in the art of
i fabrication or in the correlation of
I events that lead to an unmistakable
conclusion. In any event. Julius pos
sesses an intellect that is unique in
character.
The Jury was out forty-nine hours
bofore a mistrial was declared, and is
Isald to have stood eight to four for
'conviction from the first.
That the element of doubt entered
forcibly Into the minds of the Fair
banks Jurors Is evidenced by their
; verdict
HEILIG SUCCEEDS GARDNER
AS ASSISTANT TO ROTH
ID1TAROD, Dec. 21.?In a communi
; cation received by United States Dis
trict Attorney It. F. Roth, at Fair
banks, from his assistant, G. Ellis
Gardner, the latter resigned his pool
' tion, stating that it would bo impos
sible for him to return to tho terri
tory. Immediately after receiving
the communication Mr. Roth wired
tho attorney-general recommending
that Reed W. Helllg be appointed to
fill tho vacancy, and it is expected
that the recommendation will be com
plied with.
Mr. Gardner camo North a year ago
last spring to accept the position of
assistant United States attorney. He
served about six months under the
former district attorney, and wheu i
Mr. Roth took office retained his posi
tion. During the month of August he
left for the States and stated at that
time that he had a business deal on
which, if it went through, would nec
essitate his remaining Outside.?Pio
