Itergfeldt tbe Accused.
The sudden and somewhat mysterious
death of Matilda C. Rogers, June 30th,
at the Rogers farm on Mill creek, lead
to an; investigation by a coroners jury,
about which our . readers are familiar.
That phe jury found evidences sufficient
to warrant the arrest of William Birg
feld,' son-in-law of "deceased," is shown
by the verdict, ' from which we quote as
We the jury empanneled by the
coroner of Wasco county, Or.; to inquire
into the cause of the death of the late
Matilda C. Rogers, find that her death
was caused 'by poison administered by
some person ; that we' have, from the
testimony Jtakehand-'rpreetited to us,

feld is the person who is guilty, and who
was . instrumental v in . procuring the

A DEADLY POISON.
The Trafflo Wlttalndianiln tbe Vilest of
Decoctions Called" Whisky.
Some time ago a party of Warm Spring
Indians in The Dalles, were approached
by a half breed opium fiend known as
Charley Hermon, who told them that if
they would give him money at the rate
of $2.00 per ' bottle, he would supply
them with whiskv. An Indian will give
anything he has for abottleof fire water.
They of course could not let ruch a prop
osition as that, go by default, so they
raked np enough to secure" two bottles
and a flask. . This was not enough
whisky, however, ' and they raised an-;
other dollar and a half. They gave this
to Charley, on his return to the rendez
vous, and he left them to get another
bottle, but did not again ' show up, and
the Indians started' homeward. Before
reaching tbe agency those who had drank
of the stuff jbecame very sick, and soon
after getting to their homes three of the
Indians died. A fourth one is yet lin
gering on the verge of death. As soon
as Agent Lucky heard of the affair lie
obtained one of the bottles which still
contained some ' of the poisonous mix
ture, and sent it to Portland. The- an
alysis showed that it was' composed ' of
alcohol, prussic acid, fusil oil and chlor
oform. His next move was to trace the
culprit who had been - the cause of the
trouble.' After securing sufficient infor
mation he came to The Dalles, and last
night succeeded in arresting the wretch,
who was taken before Commissioner
Huntington today' and after examina
tion was remanded to jail in default of
During the past year the - periods of
druhkenes8 amongst Indians in this sec
tion have been of altogether too fre
quent ' 'occurrence. '. When a 'fiend in
human shape,; who 'would sell them
liquor has . been apprehended, he' has
been let toff with a nominal fine which
was really no - punishment at' all,
as" the" 'fine ' could, " 'be'.0 reimbursed
by ' the-' "sales : of '; a J lew "bottles
of the vile decoction pat up for Indians,
and' the traffic did hot cease. ,In the
present 'case the' cuTpit' Seems to deserve
the very worst punishment that can be
inflicted upon him. Mr. Lucky is de
termined, if possible, to break up these
abuses, at least so far as thev relate to
Indikns uhaer his charge'. '' Tbe prisoner
will be taken to Jfortiana tor trial, in
the United States court, and it is hoped
that not only upon him alone, but upon
any others connected " with him, in this
nefarious business, justice may be meted
with unstinted hand. 'It i time the whole
