Fire at "Monroe.
A very destructive 'fire occurred at Mon
roe, in this county, on Tuesday morning of
this week, in which six buildings were
totally consumed. About 15 minutes to 2
o'clock in theuiiunin; fire was discovered
iu back, or oil room of Thompson's drug
store, which spread south to Johu Weber's
shoe shop, northwest to G. W. Houck's
store and warehouse, and west to Samuel
Looney's livery stable. The following is a
list of the losses as near as we are ablej to
give: G. W. Houck, $7000; Samuel Looney
9 100; Thompson $1200; Wilhelm, Star &
Hinton :2500, to 3000. Houck's store
'jooks and large portion of goods were
saved. Samuel Looney saved his vehicles,
horses and some oats. The tire is thought
to be the work of an incendiary, anl con
sidering the fact that a greater portion of
the men of the town were here in Corvallis
attending court at the time of the fire, and
that Monroe has no regular organized fire
company, the remaining citi.ens oi mat
place did noble work in fighting the flames.
Men, women and even little children
worked with a will and were successful in
saving several otner Duihiings wmcn otner-

praise can not be accorded to those who
(ought so valiently.

Sentenced to Death. J. W. Murray,
who was convicted of the murder of Alfred
Yenke, was sentenced to death in the cir
cuit court at Portland on the 24th inst. by
Judge Smith, the execution to take place
May 9th between the hours of 10 in the
forenoon and 4 in the afternoon. Murray
is without money, and even if he could
secure the services of a lawyer free, it is
not thought that he would be able to raise
funds enough to pay for printing a brief, in
case an appeal was taken to the supreme
court. Murray's old associates hold him in
such contempt for the cowardly manner of
the murder, that they care little to interest
themselves in his behalf, hence there is little
hope of an appeal.
A Painful Accident. When the flre
bell was ringing last Sunday the engine and
one hose cart were in the middle of the
street in front of Jacobs & Neugass' store,
while the other hose cart was turning the
corner on the side walk aud Hon. E. G.
Hurch, prosecuting attorney for this district
was standing at the foot of the stairway
leading to the railway office, and amid the
noise and confusion did not hear the ap
proaching cart, the wheel of which struck
him in the back, knocking him down and
passing over his ankle. Strange to say,
however, no bones were broken. It is
thought that the wheel first struck the hee!
of his boot, and as the cart will probably
weigh 2,000 pounds, this fact alone is all
that saved a more serious accident. It has
caused much talk as to the propriety of the
fire companies running on the sidewalk in
cases of fire, and while it is a debatable
question, similar accidents should be guard
ed against in the future.

:wS Double Murder Divulged.
SAtf Francisco, March 23. The Chroni
cle will publish to-morrow a shocking story
of a double murder in Sonoma county and a
charge that Thos. J. Geary, prosecuting at
torney for Sonoma, assisted in hushing it up
and assisted the murderer to escape from
the country. It is charged that Frank
Meacham, son of a wealthy farmer, lived for
several years in an isolated place belongiug
to his father, keeping there iu improper re
larion with himself a woman named Eurilla
Bray, who was induced to live with him on
the promise of marriage when she should
procure a divorce from Bray, who had de
serted her. During this time she g ive birth
to two children both of whom were smother
ed by their father, Meacham, in presence of
their mother. His failure to keep the prom
ise of marriage caused her to divulge the
dreadful story. Examination proved all her
ch irgts, and the bodies of the children were
dug tip by detectives from the yard of
Meacham's house. After all this proof had
been presented Geary -ordered the matter
dismissed on a pretense that it would be
impossible to convict, and the presumption
is that he was paid by Meacham's father to
let the sou off.
Woodcock so far as known at the present
time came from Holland to England and
from thence camj three brothers to New
York State from one of which sprang the
father of the deceased.
On the mother's side the first ancestry so
far as is now known, was Peter Cooper,
Martin Cooper. Catherine Ham and Regint
Kriini all of whom were born in the tow11
of Westerwalt, Prussia, came to America
and settle! in Livingstone Manor now
Duchess Co., New York, in the year 1761.
From the marriage of Peter Cooper to Cath
arine Ham there sprang two children, one
of whom was Peter C. Cooper, born July 6th
1775. From the marriage of Martin Cooper
and llegina Krum there sprang seven chil
dren one of whom was Regiua Cooper.
In 1796 Peter C. Cooper son of Peter
Cooper and Regina Cooper, daughter of
Martin Cooper, were married and unto them
were born nine children, one of w-hom,
Catharine, was married August 12th, 1821'
to William Woodcock father of the subject
of this history. The father and mother
accompanied by six children of which the
leceased was one of them, fourteen years
of age, left New York in the year 1838 and
settled in what was then a wilderness of
woodland in Wisconsin, about eight miles
from where now stands the city of Mil
waukee, when the father with the assistance
of the deceased and his brother Horace two
years his senior hewed a home out of the
heretofore unbroken forest; earning the
means to pay for the homestead by cutting
c irlwood. Thereafter the deceased worked
and assisted on the farm and grew to man
hood until at the age of twenty-four years on
the 2Sth day of August 1SS8 was married to
Amanda J. White, who survives him. From
this union earee oue son and two daughters.
The son M. S. Woodcock was born May 9th

panied by his elder brother Haface and
wife, aud a younger brother VV. C. Wotd-
his fellow man, and when near the end and
the shadow of that untried future were
gathering about him, almost his last words
were that he "could look back over every
act of his life with satisfaction," and how
can man live nobler ? If ie hat lived well
surely he may not fear to die.
One who has known him for a few of the
later years of his life would offer this tribute
to his memory. His scrupulous exactness
in performing all he promised and his
straightforward course in whatever path
duty called regardless of all else, had gained
him the regard of all who came iu contact
with him, and the esteem and warmest
affection from those who knew him best.
Many will mourn him as a friend gone, and
his memory will be cherished long after his
form is returned to dust from whence it
came. May his fidelity to his favorite
motto exemplified in his whole life give it
a new and nobler Bleating to his friends
who survive him.

When they arrived after the long and toil
some journey across the plains on the 24th
day of September of the same year, and
after looking over various parts of the
Willamette valley for lauds subject to loca
tion under theu donation act, the deceased
and his brother W. C. Woodcock settled
on adjoining places about fourteen miles
west of Eugene City, Lane county, on
wild linds where they remained about four
years, in which time they toiled and
built up a new home. The following two
years were spent in learning the wagon
makers trade of a neighbor, Jacob H.
We'.isher, who was also a blacksmith, and iu
t ie fall of 1859 deceased, his brother Horace
a id Mr. Welsher formed a partnership for
the purpose of engaging in the manufactory
of wagons and carriages, and all moved to
Monroe, in Benton county, where they con
tinued in that business until the winter of
1863, during which time they built up a
large trade, their Wagons being justly ai
preciated for thcirneatues3, durability, light
draft and the evident care with which they
were constructed found ready purchasers,
even from long distances away from the
place of manufacture. The deceased about
the time of moving'to Monroe also entered
in partnership with his brother W. C.
Woodcock for the purpose of conducting a
general merchandise business at that place,
Which business was continued until the
winter of 1869. Iu the spring of 1874 the
deceased with bis wife and daughters moved
to East Portland, and in gthe fall following
they purchased a port of the William
Herron farm near Salem and there resided
and built another home, until the spring of
1882 when he sold the farm and during the
following summer accompanied by wife
and youngest daughter he visited the old
home in Wisconsin where his aged mother
then 78 years old still resided on the land
he had helped to clear for her and his father
in his early boyhood days. Returning to
Oregon after a brief visit he moved in April
1883 to the present home about a mile west
of Salem near the state insane asylum,
where he once more commenced to build a
home for his old age in which he hoped to
rest from hard work and care and where
after an illness of a few weeks he died
surrounded by loved ones and kind friends,
aged fifty-nine years, eight months and
two days. On the 11th day of last Feb
ruary he went to serve on the jury of Marion
county. He served during a spell of cold
weather in which a part of the time there
was deep snow on the ground. During the
first week he caught a severe cold and con
tinued to serve as juror instead of asking
the court to excuse him, until the end of two
weeks, at which time the cold had developed
into a severe case of pneumonia which
finally resulted in his death.
