At Gold Hill—No Clue to the Perpe­

Some unknown party entered the
residence of Hon. W. A. Carter of Gold
Hill last Friday night, while he and
his wife were at Grant's Pass. Among
the articles taken were some articles of
wearing apparel and jewelry belong­
ing to Mrs. C., and an open-faced
watch, all of the value of a few hundred
dollars. The robber entered the house
through a screened window. Evidently
he or she was aware of the proprietor's
absence, and perhaps more or less
acquainted with the premises. A
young woman living in Gold Hill with
her sister was suspicioned of the crime
and arrested; but as nothing could be
found to criminate her she was released.
The guilty party may yet be arrested,
as officers are on the lookout.
