LATAH COUNTY PROBING OF
ALLEGED ORGANIZATION
Special to Evening Teller.
MOSCOW, Ida., Nov. 30.—The
history of the organization perfect
e( } in Latah and Nez Perce counties
for the purpose of stealing and mar
keting horses and cattle from the
ranges of eastern Washington and
Northern Idaho is slowly being se
cured by Sheriff Keane a*d deputies
from the men who are now confined
in the Latah county jail.
As a further development in the
case today, Deputy Sheriff Grant
Robbins was sent to Summit, Ida.,
to take into -custody Sinebar Hill,
who has been .implicated in some of
the horse and cattle stealing opera
tions by the confessions of Bauer
and Kent.
Hill is a brother of Frank and
jack Hill, and the three brothers
reside on the Gilbert, ranch, near
Summit. He went Into that section
about a year ago from Little Bear
ridge in the Potlatch country, where
he resided for a number of years.
The preliminary examination of
Frank White, the Juliaetta farmer
who was arrested a few days ago in
company with George Forsman, is
being conducted today. White has
made a confession to Sheriff Keane
and deputies, and while the details
J, this confession have not been
made public, it is understood he has
praetically corroborated every state

most carefully planned and success

stealing of horses and cattle has
been systematically carried on for
the past four years without a hitch

The'sheriff'H office has been cog

the past several months, and the of

to secure the necessary evidence that,

with the prosecutions. The esca
pade of Bauer and Kent was the
opening for which Sheriff Keane
was waiting, and when arrested the
men did just what he believed they
would do. They made a confession
of all of their transactions with the
organization and placed the offlceis
