Jake Gates, who lived two miles south of Smith's Basin, was arrested last week
by Deputy Sheriff Hanor and taken to Salem. The grand jury found a bill against
him for arson and murder. It is supposed he set fire to Butterfield Brothers' barn
last fall, in which a driver was burned to death, and also set fire to a barn belonging
to the same persons two years ago. His trail will occur in June at Sandy Hill.
