XIV, NO. 20 t Bn KILLS OSCAR TAYLOR THREE SHOTS FROM HIGH POW ER RIFLE ENTER BODY; IN STANTLY KILLED. WIFE Of BRAVER EYE WITNESS I j CORONERS INOUEST HELD AND PRELIMINARY HEARING SET FOR THURSDAY. / - Oscar Taylor was instantly killed by Dan Brayer at Challis last Mon day evening. He wa s shot down while leaving the Brayer town rési dante« where ihe had been sawing .wood. Th« gun used was a high power rifle. Three shot 3 were fired by Brayar, all of which took effect, ■one piercing »the heart, one entering the abdomen and one the oheek bone, any of which would probably have caused Heath. Brayer gave himself up to Frank Cummins, sheriff of Ouster county soon after the shooting, first going to the Wm. Millick residence, itthe Miner is informed, and calling the sheriff from there. A charge of mur der wag preferred and he is held in the counity jail. A coroner's inquest was held over the remain« of Taylor in Challis on Tuesday and th e jury rendered a verdict to the effect ithait Taylor came to his death a s the result of gunshot wounds infliicted by a gun in the hand s of Daniel Brayer. Taylor wa s a former employee of IBrayeir, having worked with the Brayer sheep outfit for a number of years. He homesteaded a piece of land adjoining the Brayer ranch On Warm Springs creek, and had left the employ of Brayer to look after the property. Recently lie was re employed by Brayer. A quarrel was had a week or so before the «hooting in which Taylor was badly handled, following which he moved to Challis. The preliminary hearing is self for ! Thursday. The feeling throughout the coun- ! tv run s very high against Brayer j and Challis is said to be greatly wrought up over the killing. Whitcomb, Cowen & Clark and , Chase A. Clark have tbeen engaged to defend the man who took ithe life of a citizen and it is understood that at present W. W. Adamson has been engaged to assist Prosecuting Aittor- ' ney Milton A. Brown. j The Brayer ranch is eight or ten j miles from Challis. Mrs. Brayer and the children were living in i Challis, where the children attended | school. Following the quarrel be- j tween Brayer and Taylor and the laitter's removal to town, he was, the | Miner is reliably informed, aske d by Mrs. Brayer to saw stove wood at | the town residence. On Monday he j i s reported to have been working on the wood pile and that^evening; was in the Brayer house with Mrs. Bray- ! er and the oldest daughter, when Mrs Braver stated she was going to Mrs. Brayer stated sne was going to a neighbors for her other daughter, j 'Taylor then stated that he would so as far as town with her. lit was dark when the couple left the house and at they came out the door th e shots •were fired which cost Taylor his life. Brayer i s reported ito have been at the ranch that day, coming to town late in thie day with Wm. Millick, in Millick's automobile, and bringing his rifle with him. Just what ithg facts are leading up to the tragedy which places Brayer behind the bars facing a murder charge, will not he known until the affair has been thrashed ,out before a jury.—Mackay Miner.

Tuohy, who is Commlandant of ithe Stewart Hoover Post, American Legion, will have charge of the Red Cross work for ex-service men within the chapter jurisdiction. As the right arm of the Army and Navy, the American Rod Cross baa, been designated ithe official organization to look ufte,r the disabled veteran an,d his family, to aid him in getting his claims filed with the Veterams' -Bureau and ito stand by him until his difficulties are adjusted.

Hudson, Mrs. W. F. Berryman, amd Messrs. Anderson and Fehnel as advisors. Early lias been most faithful in looking after ihe needs of those to whom the Red Cross can offer a helping hand in time of itrouble or distress. While the Red Cross i "Charity Organization,** 1t stantly on tli not a I l. con • lient to do a human Italian act of any kind. It. aims ito give service as well ns help, that Is! to find out the (cause of .the difficul tv and to extend sympathetic coun sei and guidance toward solving ithe trouille. in carrying the Hom e Ser vira Program, Itihis committee often lias need for clothing, bedding, groc eries and supplies, but more often is the crying demand made for a job for the head of a household. Keep ing ithe children in school, helping with the family coal bill, finding a job for the father an,d big brother, and often seeing Ith'at necessary hos pital care is given a sic^ mother, are among the almost daily duties of the Home Service Commit tee. a Bingham County is proud of the support It« people gave to 'the Red Cross Chapter in It« recent drive for membership, anil consequently for funds to "carry on," and the people of this community do not intend 8 thait (he work of the Red Cross shall ever be cut down here because of lack of community support. For the past several days. Miss ! Anna E. Brakel, Field Représenta- ; tive for Idaho of the American Red , Cross, ha« been in Blackfoot on a | special mission to the Bingham j County Chapter. During her stay here the Btoard wa s reorganized, of- |be fleers aleoted, and plans made for the carrying out of -the year's pro gram, along the lines approved by tlhd National Red Cross. "There is no such thing as a 'local Red Cross'" said Miss Brakel. "Each Chapter holding a chanter from ithe Ameri can National Red Crose Is thereby made a member of this great organ ization of six and one-half million adults, and over five million Juniors, banded together for the welfare of humanity, and it behoove^ each exe cutive ito see to it .that the national principles and policies of the Red Cross are carefully and constantly studied In order to keep the work j of the 3400 chapters In the country uniform."
