Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...on cross-examination by the district attorney, he testified as follows: "Q. Did you have any particular object in leaving there at night and not in thedaytime? A. It was eighty-five miles from Hinckley to the Meechem ranch. I didn't know the country, but I could see into the Antelope Pass. ' ' ' I rode away in the night because if I lost the road I could State V. Williams, 49 Utah 336. find the way to Antelope Pass. I could see where the pass was and could see it at night, and I wanted daylight for the after part of the ride." No effort was made by the state to dispute or to weaken defendant's testimony regarding the topography and the physical condition of the country through which the road extends from Hinckley to the Meechem ranch. In fact, there does not seem to be any controversy regarding defendant's movements and the conditions under which he traveled from Fillmore with the horses he received from Sherifi Dorrity to his home in Nevada. Defendant's version of the circumstances under which he came into possession of the horses described in the information and the disposition he made of them on reaching Nevada is about as follows: At about two o'clock on the day after he came to the Terry ranch with the James horses he was in front of a store in the town of Hinckley, and a man rode up on horseback and inquired of him if he "was the fellow that was going to Ely horseback," and that he answered in the affirmative. The' man, who gave his name as Bidwell, stated that he had a couple of gentle horses that he desired to send"'over to the Ely country"; that he could not take them himself because he "was going to Salt Lake two or three days on business...".show more
