Langdon, the Murderer r Croaks and Jei-j, Shel, and Harrison, Mnsncrtrd of Bring an Accomplice, Hanged' by Mob at rrlnevllle. The murder of A. H. Crooks and his son- in-law, S. J.-Jory, by Lucien Langdon, at Big Willow Creek, Wasco county, on Wednes day last, has culminated in a most shocking display of mob vengeance. As soon as the news of the murder was received, at Prineville, a posse started out to capture the perpetrators. They succeeded in. securing the horse and rifle oi Langdon on Wednesday evening. On Thursday evening he returned to his house to change his clothing,, and as he was leaving he was surrounded by man armed with Win chester rifles, and compelled to surrender. Langdon and his wife both begged that he might be guarded from mob violence, which his captors promised. He was taken to Prineville and placed under guard in the Jackson House, where he laid down on a lounge in the corner of a room srud went to sleep. Our correspondent at Prineville fur nishes the following account of the subse quent proceedings. In the mean tims, A MASKED HOB Assembled at the ringing of the school bell, and at about 5 o'clock in the morning, broke into the hotel, overpowered the guards, and one of the men struck Langdon two blows over the head with a six-shooter, after which he fired five shots at Langdon, three of which took effect, death resulting instantly. And just to show the marked coolness of the man who did the shooting, it is enouuh to say that afttr he had done the shooting, he stepped hack a step or two and waited some time to tee if his work was complete. Nor was this the end of this fatal affair. A youn? man by tho name of W. H. Harrison who had been around Langdon's for some time conduc ted himself -so shamefully at the inquest of Crooks and Jory, that it was thought he must have been implicated in tho murder in some way, for he remarked that "That was the way to pile them up," and that "Ho knew TUKV WOOLD OIT IT Before long." This had so enraged tho peo ple that after finishing Langdon they seized Harrison and hustled him off to the brjdge on Crooked river. He made somo slight resist euce and begged lustily fur mercy s.iying "Give me a chance for my life!" and "I know nothing ol the attair. lint his cries only has tenen him into eternity, as he was felled to the ground by a blow from some one and drac aeil to tho bridffe bv the neck where he was found suspended to a beam this morning, liy - . ---Q-. ---- ----- . --- - this awful affair three homes arc made des olate and three widows and their children are left to mourn the loss of husbands and fathers. The Prineville News gives the fallowing ac count of the murder: It appears that one L. L. Langdon had had somo difficulty about a piece of disputed land with two men living near him by the name of Crooks and Jory. Langdon went to theso men and compromised matters with them, and the three run the lines in an apparently satisfactory manner. This was done in the moraine, and Lauedon told Uroons and Jory that the business was then settled. Crooks and hiB son-in-law (Jory) then went to work on the disputed land, cut ting wood. While they were gone to dinner Langdon went to w here they had been at work and waited for them to return. When the men came from their dinner. Lansdon met them at their work, and without any provo cation shot and killed them both) Mr. Crooks was shot in the right shoulder and breast, the shot passing through his lungs, and killing him almost instantly. Jory was shot in the face, eleven buckshot entering there, and threo Senetrating the brain. The wives of the mur ercd men were looking on at a distance of a quarter ot a mile, and saw the whole affair. Word wus soon brought to town, telling of the murder, and Justice Powers, acting as coroner, and accompanied by several citizens, repaired to the place where the killing was done, and found the bodies just as they had fallen when shot. No one had gone to the bodies except their wives, who had approach ed and placed their aprons over the hoads of the dead. A jury was impaneled who return ed a verdict that Crooks and Jory came to their death by gunshot wounds inflicted by Lucas Langdon. From the following concerning Harrison, it would appear as if he was not altogether in nocent : At about five o'clock in the morning a band (number not known) of armed and masked men entered the hotel, instantly overpower ing the officers. Langdon was called, and upon being aroused, was riddled with bullets instantly. Harrison was seized, taken from the hotel, gagged, haltered and dragged to the Crooked rivet bridge, a distance of per haps a quarter of a mile, and his body hung to the timbers of the bridge, where it was found in the morning. Harrison admitted being implicated in the murder of Crooks and Jory. Upon hearing that Langdon had suc ceeded in killing both men, he (Harrison) was heard to exclaim " Bully for ua! Big Injun me! ho laid 'em out 'just about right. And these remarks were repeated before several, in the pretence of the dead, and in hearing of the wails of the poor widows and children of the murdered men. It appears that afte. Langdon got his fright on Mill Cieek on Wednesday night, that he succeeded in footing it back to his home, a distauce of probably 15 miles, intending to secure another horse and gun. As good for tune had it the company who went to arrest Harrison, intercepted him just as he was leav ing hn home. He mot the boys and was in their midst before he knew it. He very read ily surrendered at the muzzles of the Win chesters and was captured wjtlt- the above result. THE INQUESTS. At 1 1 o'clock Wednesday, Justice Powers, acting as coroner, held inquests on the re mains of the two men foubd dead, and the following verdicts were returned : We, the jury empaneled at the inquest held on the body of a man found .dead at the Jack son House on March 17, 1832, find that the namo of the deceased is Lucius Langdon, and that he came to his death at the hands of a party of meu unknown, by being shot with a Sistol.

Depatr HherllT Uwl Killed by a Hob Who Attempted to Take a Msoarr from Ills Custody lo Lynch lllai. The following account of the terrible tragedy at Greenman's Hotel, Linkville, which resulted in the death of a deputy sheriff at the hands of a mob who were at tempting to take H. C. Laws fiom his custody for the purpose of lynching him, we copy from the Ashland 2'uling. At tho inquest held upon the liody of S. Lewis, C. S. Moore testified as follows': I was sitting in the hotel barroom, or office, about 10 o'clock, was sitting near the door. I heard an order given outside to halt. Wm Wright, J. P., stepped to the door and opened it. Some one outside ordered him to go back and shut the door, which he did. Just afterward the door opened and from eight to ten men came in with guns cocked. The leader said, "every man of vou sit still 1" Just then Deputy Sheriff Lewis came into the room from the hall. When the order was given to sit down he knelt on one knee at tho corner of the telegraph office, 'lhe leader then said, "where is the prisoner ? wheto is me constaDie; ne nas to go to Lookout. Air. Wright, J. P., then spoke, and being asked who he was, said, "I am justice of the peace of this precinct. I warn you to desist." The leader again asked him where the prisoner was, and said he had o go to Lookout. Mr. Wright then replied that the prisoner was under strong guard and would be dealt with according to law. The leader'said, "yes, you will deal with him like you do here." Mr. Wright said he believed he had generally done his duty. The leader again demanded the constable, and put the muzzle of the gun in my face. I said, "I do not kuow where he is. He is not here." The leader then crossed the room, took a lighted candle from the wall and tried to pass into the adjoiniug UAuuit uc nas bum iiiivta iiua uu uiiu there. Then he held the caudle to Ed. Reed, saying, "Here, carry this candle aud you shall not be hurt." Reed declined and the leader, carrying the light, moved toward the door of the hall, bidding his followers to move l?i He opened the hall door and started in, Grcenman said, "I warn you uot to go in there. As he stood on the threshold, some one fired a shot from the direction of the stairway. The candle was extinguished. From the noise I thought someone fell in the hall, The leader said, "That's all right boys, stand your ground." The mob closed up to ward the hall door. Just then another shot was fired, which I think was the one that killed Mr. Lewis. Another shot wa.i fired almost instantly. Tho mob then re treated rapidly, as did also the other in mates of the room, until only three or four were left. By this timo all tho lights in the room wero out. After being shot, Mr. Lewis rose up, holding his thigh with both hands. He said, " Oh I oh !" three or four times while standing, and then, losing hold of his thigh, he fell upon the floor, and I heard the gush of blood. We hastened to his assistance with a light, but in five min utes he was dead. The shot that killed him seemed to como from the midst of the mob. The weapon was a gun loaded with four bul lets and held so close that it set his clothing on fire arouud the wound. The leader of the mob was a tall man, rather slender, with sandy complexion, light beard, three or four inches long on his chin, was 3d or 40 years old, had a falsetto voice, wore a slouch hat, was slightly disguised by blacking the face, as were tho others. I knew none of the crowd. Two guns were left iu the room by the mob one barrel of each had recently been dis charged. The cause of the sudden death of Officer Lewis from the wound was the severing of tho femoral artery, from which the blood spouted in a torrent. Tho persons in the office of the hotel at the time the mob entered were i W. C. Greenman, W. A. Wright, J. P. Samuel, J. Lewis (deputy sheriff), Charles S. Moore, Henry Striplin, Charley blade, E. U. Brooks, Ed Reed and Mr. Sutliff, telegraph operator, nearly all of whom were unharmed. The deputy sheriff was killed without any excuse whatever. He sat down, as did tho rest, when ordered to by the leader of the mob, and was still sitting when shot. Justice Weight, with some others, went out a window, and was shot in the muscle of the left arm afttr he was outside of the hotel. It is believed that one of the pirty nf lynchers was bacly wound ed by the shot fired in the hall of the hotel, but nothing positive is known concerning it, except that blood was found, indicating that one of the lynchers was hurt. The excitement of Linkville is great, and efforts will be made to discover the partici pators in the mob. It is reported that t o young men nf Alkali valley have been arrested of being connected with the attempted lynch ing. Tho examination of H. C. Laws was first arranged to take place at Linkville last Mon day, Gut, in consequence of the last tragedy, it was postponed, and is not yet fairly begun. Col. C. A. Cogswell, of Lakeview, will appear as counsel for Laws, weare told. lhe O. A C, It. U. Extension. The work of construction on the extension of the O. & C. R. R. Co's road to California is being pushed forward with vigor, Nearly 900 Chinese laborers, says the Jacksonville Sentinel, arc at work, some of them grading as far south as the Robert's hill. Two tun nels have been located, one through tho Cow creek hill 2.800 feet in length, and the sec ond through the Grave creek divide below where it is crossed by the present stage i oad, aud 3,300 feet long and approoched by an open cut 1,000 feet long. Bids for construc tion of both these tunnels were to have been opened on Thursday, and it is thought then will nut be finished before next Spring. If this should ba the rose, the road will not be finished lurther south than Cow creek this year. It is thought that trains will be run ning to Myrtle creek by the middle of August. The saw mill on Myrtle creek is now running and at work on timbers for the two bridges at that point. Much change has been made in the line of the road to Grave creek and it is possible that when the country is examined, a detour may be made that will take the road through the "Pleasant" creek divide and bring it to Rogue river at the mouth of Evans creek. This is mere con jecture, however, and only to be determined by the survey. During April, when the weather settles it is expected that there will be a force of several tl.outand men put to work and lit ely times along the line may be looked for. Comstock k Miller have pur chased a steam pile driver which will be at work along the line of the railroad extension in a few days. Died.
