We lake the following nccount from
laM Saturday's Al'avy Democrat:
Wednesday evening, ner the res'
dence of D. P. Manoii, on the southeast
corner of Ferry, and Fifth streets, in
Alhany, Charles Cainplioll, of Alhany,
wiiile alkin)j south along Ferry street,
in company with Mat tie Allixoh, was
shoppy Wirt W. Saunders, formerly

taken to Ui reHidenee of Gea WT.
Rurkhart and n'tout 9 o'clock was re
moved to hia father'o homo in tlie east
ern part of the oity, where he died at
6 o'clock Thumdny morning.
A coroner's jury was called ly Gea
Humphrey, Eiq., consisting of Thomas
Monteith, J. II. Rurklmrt, John Rry
ant, 0. F. Simpson, S. T. Jones and A.
L. Churchill. The testimony of Dr.
Maston, Mr. J)oherty, C. II. Stewart,
thn firnt onen pri'nent after the nhooting,
Mr. Iluir.nan and Msttie Allison, was
taken, j he teHtimony of Miss Allison,
a lifelong resident of Linn county,
tells so nearly the whnln particulars of
the unfortunate affair that we give
alone her version of it, which is in
keeping practically with tho rest of the
miss Allison's statement.
Miss Mtt tin Allison, on heing sworn,
made the following statement:
I started home twenty five minutes
past seven. I passed ly engine house.
f had Iteen getting insulting letters and
wanted to know who they were written
liy. I went past, engine house, and he.
een Mansfield's and court housn I
met Camplxdl. He was in disguise
hut I knew htm. In front of court
house i met him again. I said, "Are
you the gentleman who wrote the let
teiT He said, "I suppose we are even
now." I said, "I guess not; you have
heen doing everything you can to ruir.
me." He had followed me everywhere.
we went along quarreling. At Mason's
we met Suuudeis. I was on left side,
Saunders said, ''What do you mean
liy insulting Mattie in this manner?'
Camphell put his hand hack and then
Saunders firod. I said, "Don't tire
again. Camphell dropped. He said,
"I am going to die. Does this jome
from you?" I said, "I suppose it does."
Saunders asked where lie was shot.
He said, "In my howels." I said,
when asked, we will take him to my
house. My mother said he should not
he taken there. Meeting was hy ap
pointment between Captain Saunders
and me. I once went to Corvallis with
Saunders. He said he had heard how
Caniplsjll had leen talking ahout me.
I told Saunders how Camphell had
talked ahout mo and that ho let nio
alone for some time, and that if Camp
bell ever did it again I said I could not
stand it. Saund'-rs said, "Make me a
promise, toll me when he does it and I
will com down and have a talk with
him and tell him how the laud lays
and ha will never bother you any
more." I got this letter from a man
desiring to meet me. Got it Tuesday
morning. Sat down and cried. I
wrote a letter to Saunders; told him 1
wis going to have trouble; told him I
wished he would come down. He
came down. Got here at 8 o'clock
Tuesday evening. Showed letter to
liiu; toll him I believed Dud Juhnson
rote the letter. Told him he had
Iter see liud and tell him I believed
was the one who wrote it. He said
had better write to Campbell and
teMiim you will meet him. Of courts
I kVw it was Campbell. Said I was
afroV Cmtlell had threatened to
shoobne. He said he would be around
to prLct in? and would walk up and
demail w hat he meant by his conduct.
(ShowA htter.) This is the one I
wrote, Suunder made copy and I
copied nearly. Ihiuk Saunders
stopped V Revere House when he
came dovA I not know fjr sure
alwut hisiM'iiig armed. Of course, I
thought hi. was. He always carries
one. Did st'n I went to Corvallis
TIitb were tio shots, but he only fired
one. The odr was accu'entaL
I w rote Sailers Tuesday moniiiiif
and he came
u that eveniii" I
i have words, but

would be trouble.
would kill me If he got a chance.
Shooting was 23 minutes of 8. It was
not very dark or light. Met Saunders
ast night not quite 7 o'clock. Think
it was near Iiluins. Nothing said
aliout my appointment with Campbell.
He went back with inn to store. Said
he had sent his buggy homo and by
wlidiii. Heard Saunders say the shoot
ing was accidental a' the time. He
dropped pistol and told me to pick it
up, but I would not. Mr. CampUll
was on tight a'de and Saunders in front
of me, so near t couU nearly touoh
him. I never dreamed of shooting.
It was done so quick I hardly knew
how it was done. Nothing was said
about Saunders between me and Camp
bell. Saunders told me ho and Ciiilip-
bell had phyed cards together in Harry
Noel's saloon. I askid CampWU who
Vrntn letters, and he said Mr. Johnson.
Object of appointment was to find out
for certain who wanted this meeting.
I thought there would lie some slap
ping or something like that, but never
dreamed of anything else.
About 3 o'clock I got answer to let
ter in postollice. Captain Saunders
was at store when I showed him letter.
Told me to meet him. Said I was
afraid to meet him, as h would as
soon kill nm as turn his hand over. He
said, "You go and I will be around
somewhere if anything happens." v I
told hint which way I would go, by the
court house. I could not see anything
of Saunders Is-fore time of shooting.
Do not think they had ever had any
difficulty before yesterday. Saunders
was at house after shooting. He seem
ed to be sorry and regretUd it. He
had not known what he was doing.
The reason Saunders took interest in
me was Ls'cauue ho expected to marry
my sister. They are engaged. He
has been over to the bay. He took in
terest in me same as if lie were my
brother, and this was the reason he
took my part. When Camplwdl left
hero some weeks ago I neyer wroto to
him to come back.
At the time of the shooting t lift lan
guage used I y Saunders wns "what do
you mean by slandering Ma'.tio and
writing her these insulting letters'"
Campbell said: "You son of a -,
I had jjst as soon shoot you," or some
thing that amounted to that, as nearly
as caii remember. Campbell had an
umbrella.. He put his right hand back
by his side. Don't know under which
arm the umbrella was. Saunders did
not say anything after what Campbell
said, but pointed his pistol in front of
me and tired. Ho only fired once. Did
not see Campbell full. Sew him on the
ground first after shooting. I put my
hand on Saunders' arm and said :
"Don't shoot again." Pistol fell. I
looked around and saw Campbell lying
down with Suunders beside him, Camp
bell said: " I am going to die." Saun
ders said : " Oh, my God, don't say
that, for I did not mean to do it,
Saunders asked him where ho was shot
and he said in the liowek Campbell
asked me if I was the cause of that,
And I made the. remark that I guessed
I was. He asked me if I could for
give him for every thing lie had done
a?iinst mo. Dr. Maston was the first
Thou. Monteith, Jr., testified that
Miss Allison was in the store of Mon
teith SeitcnVarh Wednesday, when
she said to him, something is going to
happen and I am afraid my heart will
break. Yesterday after the murder
she was again in the store and liegjed
him for God's sake not to mention what
she had said-
The jury mentioned above rendered
a verdict that Charles's death was
caused by a gunshot wound received at
the bauds of W. W, Saunders and that
they find and have reason' to believe
that the said W. W. Saunders and Mat
tie Allison are guilty of the crime of
kililng the said Charles Campls'll.

The Astoria and Winnemucca Rail
road company want authority to build
railroad bridges across the Willamette
river, south of Oregon' City, and across
such other streams and sloughs as it
may be necessary to bridge along the
lino of the railroad, or any of its
branches. This measure is supported
by the War Department, to which all,
of this character are referred for ex
amination. The chief of engineers
says that upon a thorough examination
it is believed that the provisions of the
bill are ample for the protection of the
navigable interests concerned, inasmuch
as the width of the draws, height and
location of the bridges are made sub
ject to tho approval of the Secretary of '
War, but until his approval has been
received they cannot bo bui't.
