(Special to the East Oregonlan.) One version of tha Mntlock-Natter-Creswell shooting af fair of lost Saturday evening, aaserta that the first shot waa fired by Creswell, who, being . on the witness stand, giving testimony, ap aprently thought, from some motion made by Natter, thut the latter waa about to draw a pistol to shoot, and that Creswell immediately drew bia weapon and fired at Natter, killing him, and Matlock, upon CresweJI' opening fir on Natter, quickly pull ed his pistol and shot at Creswell twice. Inflicting two flesh wound, which have not been serious In their consequence. Those holding thl version of the tragedy affirm that ther was a feud of long standing between Natter and Creswell, which, if true, would ex plain in part the readiness with ; which Creswell drew and fired, fear- Ing that Natter was about to do thf same.
