Fmiui A W Powers, of the McKencle
Bridge, we learn that a small portion of the
remains of tha misaing man, Hatch, was
found recently. As will be remembered be
started to climb tho mountaiu from Blue
river to tbe quartz mines about the first of
January and never reached his destination.
His hat, the left sleeve of his coat aud a hu
man thigh bone were found about ono-half
mile from the Dine River Milling Compa
ny's cabin. Hatch had surmounted the
hardest climb aud was on comparatively
easy ground, but either tbe effort wak Reent
er thau he was capable of sustaining or
hungry panthers bad po.mctd upon him.
At any rate the beasts bad foil upon and
scattered bis reinaius. The snow on the
mountain ia from two to eight feet deep ac
cording to the exposure. The search will
couliune until the entire remains of the un
fortunate man are found.

J, Smith committed suicide in bis lodging
room over Eastland k Wilson's store by
shooting himsell in the bead, the ball enter
ing tbe bead Just above and back of tbe
rikht tar, pa.uong through the brain and
lodging under rbo skin back of the loft ear.
The weapon uaed was a 41 calibre Smith .v.
Wesson aelf acting revolver.. Tbe shot did
not cause Immediate death, but he was un
conscious until death ensued at 9 o'clock.
Mr. Smith's health bad been decliuing since
last fall and he could obietn no relief,
although ph)siciaus hs lbeen consulted in
Fugeue, Portland and San Francisco. The
sickness waa beginning to affect his miud,
and of late at limes be acted strangely.
It seems tbst be deliberately cnnoluJed to
commit the fatal deed. He culled Geo. B
Dorrts to bis room the sfteruoou of tbe
shooting aud directed the writing of bis
will clearly, Slid apparently without excite
ment. D. P.. Bice aud Wiu, Renshaw were
called to witness tbe will. He told them
that he bad resolved to kill himself, that bia
pain was greater than he oould bear, and
that be bad given up hope of recovery doem
his case incurable. lbey reasoned with
him (or some time, and thought before leav
ing that be would uol fulfill his threat. Mr.
Dorria relumed in alwut fllloeu minutes
and found him lying nn the bed unconscious,
with a bullet bole through bia head. Coro

verdict tout bs died from a pistol shot from
his own hand, while in a state of ineutel
despondency caused by s ckuess.
Mr. Smith was born lu Illinois iu 1852,
and came to Lane oouuty with hia pareuta,
while sat til of a tender age. His parents,
brothers and aitters are dead, except oue
brother, Mr. J. F. Smith, oue of tbe couuty
ooiuuiissiouers of this county. He had ac
cumulated some proerty, bis estate being
valued at twelve to tllteen thousand dollars
with several thousand dollars indebtedness.
His will provides a legacy of $500 for his
brother, J. F. Smith, $2500 for funeral ex
penses aud building a family mouutneut,
j'HNJ to Geo. B. Dorris, who is anpointod
executor, for aervicea in settling his estate
iu lieu of executor's Ices, the remaiudor

tance above tbe Beau place, one mile below
the scene of the acoideut, on tbe 8th of this
