Jolin Darby kills Henry Slovens in
his own Bed with a Hnfchet !
It is our duly as a Journalist to
give Uie news of the clay, hut if wo
thought that such a case as the one
wo are now caller! upon to report
should evr again present itself to us
xra would lay down our pen and take
passage for heathendom. But pe -haps
the like will never be. known
again. The facts, in the main, are
About noon on Friday, January
Oi.h, Darby met Stevens and asked
him "if he had any whisky" Stevens
fiftid 4 -'VP's, v.n.c down to the cabin
and I will treat you." They went
to Henry's enbiii together and about
on o'clock soma man went to see
Stevens and upon opening- the door
Darby raised up and asked "what
in he wanted, and he'd better
get out quick." About threo
o'clock a noise was heard inbidc and
some one entered and found Darby
on the floor besmearing his head in
a pool of human blood, while on the
bed lay Henry Steens horribly beat
en, bruised and bleeding. The dy
ing man told full particulars, which
are too foul for even the Police pa
pers to print. It appears that Dar
by attempted to commit an unnatur
al and unmentionable crime upon
Henry and when he offered resistance
the hatchet was wrenched from him
and in turn beaten by his assailant;
thus bleeding and dying the poor,
old man was at the mercy of this,
worse than, hell-hound for near
The Con oners Jury returned a ver
dict that Henry Stevens came to his
death .by blows received from a ham
er or hatchet in the hands of John
Darby. Darby has been in irons
ever since. Mr. Stevens was hur
ried on Sunday last.
ArripiriED Assassination. On last
Thursday night Judge Heynolds
armed himself with a needle gun
and a be of ammunition, and sat
on the woodpile, near the iail uniil
he nearly froze, with the hope of
seeing "the monster" (Darby) make
hh upp aranfe so that he might
shoot him. After ho nifW air had
chilled him very much lie entered
the court room. Kobt. Lockwood
hearing some noise early this in the
morning, yesterday, wont to see what
it was," and upon entering found
himself covered with the gun. He
asked Reynolds what he was doin
and told him to give up the gun,
but the would be assassin refused
and a tussel" for the gun ensued,
during which time it was discharged.
Reynolds said he was after "the
monster" and no one else. The
Deputy Sheriff then said, "in the
name of the State of Oregon I ar
rest you' '. At the mention of the
word " State "he Judge wilted., gun
and self. There is little doubt but
that some one will get shot yet by
Reynolds, as he is determined to as
sassinate "the monster." (as lie calls
Darby) and through mistake he may
shoot some other person.
