THE VAUGHN TRIAL.
Sometime last May a difficulty occurred
between some parties iu the eastern part
of this county, and iu this difficulty Frank
Vaughn shot and killed Alex. Larking.
Vnughn immediately came into this place
and surrendered himself into the bands of
the officers, stating that he had killed Lar
kins, and wished for a trial. He had a pre
liminary examination before Ja's A. Smith,
Justice of the Peace. This Justice Lelf
young Vaughn (or murder, and refused to
admit him to bail. Upon this refusal, his
counsel, Messrs. Stout and Iluelat, took
4 he case before Hon. W. W. Upton, and a
re-examination had, and upon such exam
ination Judge Upton admitted Vaughn to
bail in the sum of eight thousand dollars.
He gave the requircdCJbail and was set at
.5'iberty. At the last term of the Circuit
Court young Vaughn was indicted for
murder in the first degree. He appeared,
went to tiial, and was acquitted ; and be
cause ho was acquitted the Republican
papers are agonizing terribly, and indulg
ing in false statements and their usual low
abuse of Democrats. As an example
The Oregon Statesman, of last Sunday,
has an article on the Vaughn trial, head
ed : 4vl IT 'rong that cries to lleaven."
Then, after giving an incorrect statement
.of only a small portion of the evidence,
.indulges in the following false and inali
.cious assertions : q
'Of course the murderer was arrested
.and tried. A purse was raised, contribu
tions being made by citizens of all par
ties, to secure a vigorous prosecution.
Th trial commenced Monday, November
1st. The regular pannel was exhausted
and S persons secured.all Di mocrats. Thin
two deputy sheriffs were sent out with
furnished lists, and twenty men were sum
moned, only two of whom were Republi
cans, and those "-two were not allowed to
sit on the jury. The jury, as finally em
0 pannelled, were all Democrats ; and after
iiearing the testimony, they were able
to decide in an Injur that Vaughn was
"nut guilty'-' of even manslaughter. The
idea naturally prevails' at Oregon City
that life is not safe in Clackamas, provi
ded the killing is done in Democratic
ttyle. as U generally the case.''
V'e had not heard of money being con
iributed by citizens of all parties, or by
anybody, to secure a "vigorous prosecu
tion'' of the case, until we saw the state
ment in the Statesman, and since then, we
lnvtfiiiot been able to find one of the con
tributors. The statement that two deputies were
sent out with furnished lists to summons
iha twenty, additional jurors, is untrue.
There were no lists furnished the depu
ties, nor any instructions given them on
the- subject. The statement that a ieelinir
prevails that life is unsafe at Oregon City
is also a falsehood. And the insinuation
that the verdict of the jury was controll
ed by the politics of the defendant, in
stead of the law and the evidence, is ma
licious and false, and can emanate only
from persons so totally depraved that
they would willingly barter away honor,
t.-uth and, even life itself, for partizan suc
cess. Wc arc personally acquainted with
many ot the gentlemen who composed
the jury in this ease, and know them to
be conscientious, honest and honorable
rtien. As an evidence of this, and of the
confidence reposed in them by the prose
cution, we will mention a couple of inci
dents that occurred on the selection of the
Mr. Saajuel Taylor, the first juryman se
lected, ou his examination stated that he
had conscientious scruples against capi
tal punkhment ; yet he was taken by the
prosecution and sat on the case.
Judge Caufield, the second juryman ta
ken, and a well known Democrat, on his
lamination said he had formed and ex
pressed a decided opinion in regard to
the merits of the case having been pres
ent at the preliminary examination ; yet
he, too, was taken by the prosecution and
sat on the case. And further, when the
jury was formed the twelve men taken
the attorneys for the prosecution had not
exhausted their peremptory challenges by
two ; and now let honest men form prop
er conclusions in regard to the honesty of
But the Slalcsvian is not alone in its un
principled attack upon the Sheriff of this
county, and upon the jury in the Vaughn
case. The Oregonian of Jast Saturday has
the following :
'Occasional'' writes from Oregon City :
'The jury in the Vaughn case were all
Democrats, and the twenty additional ju
rors ordered to be summoned, were all K.
K3., but two. Dully for a Democratic
Sheriff! Murder in this county is justifi
ed by all the K. Ks. and their officers.
They had a jubilee last night, after the
J?" And then in another article proceeds to
report what it claims as the evidence of
Henry Welch one of the witnesses for ihe
prosecution which it says contaim the
gist of the evidence for the prosecution.
We were not engaged in the trial of this
case, but, were present and heard the
main witnesses for the prosecution and
know that the reporter of the Oregonian
has omitted important portions of the tes
timony, has misstated other portions, and
given c-doiing to the balance. We have
Pheitber time, nor room to call attention to
all of the incorrect statements of testi
mony contained in the Oregonian article,
but will Call attention to one and0let that
suffice. In giving a report of the testi
mony of Henry Welch the Oregonian says
he swore as follows :
We had a warrant from Inman to arrest
Wm. Vaughn. Inman told me to go ; also
told John Jackson and Alex Larkin to go.
We were then in Max Ramsby's Lane.
We got on our horses and Harrisrn
Wright gave Alex Larkin a revolver. We
all then went down to "Win. Van glints
house. 1 told Alex he had better go back
as we were on the way. He went on
down. Wm. Vaughn and Dave Morris sat
on the porch by the door. As we went
to get oil' Win. Vaughn got up and went
into the house. We went into the hall.
lvmcaue Knocuea. inman said, i will go
back. He only said I will go back, lie
then went out of the door. Then I and
Kincade went to a window and looked
through saw Frank and Mrs. Vaughn
shedold Kincade to leave ; so did Frank.
Kincade said, we are not armed ; only
Alex Larkin is armed. Fiank asked is
Alex out. there. Then Frank Vaughn
opened the door and went out of the room.
I went into the hall and there met Frank.
Here witness explained the position of
parties by a diagi-am. He, Frank, went
out of the hall door. Don't know that he
saw Larkins. I did. I saw Alex on the
other side of the road, facincr me. lie
whirled when he saw rne and looked as
though he was fixing somethincr. He
turned and advanced toward Frank.
Frank said stop! Larkins hands were
down at first and down when he walked
toward Frank. He Frank told him to
stop, twice. Larkin said, I am in the
highway road' Frank told third time to
stop. Alex said, 4i I will show you," and
made a motion with his right hand ; then
Frank shot. Q
The testimony of Henry Welch in re
gard to the motion that Larkins made
with his right hand was a motion for his
pistol and a jerk as though he was at
tempting to draw it, but this important
part of the testimony the reporter of the
Oregonian maliciously and in utter disre
gard for the truth, omits. It was also in
evidence that Larkins was a dangerous
man and that a grudge existed between
him and Frank Vaughn. If a resolute and
dangerous man, and an enemy to a person,
attempts to draw a revolver on him, the
person so threatened is neithar legally nor
morally bound to wait until the pistol is
drawn at him before he can resort to
means of self defence. To require such
delay would be to deprive a person of the
powevand right of self defence.
But it is not right and justice that these
parties arc clamoring for it is for politi
ck effect. W. II. Vaughn, Frank:
Vaughn's father is a prominent Democrat
and the Republican politicians had hoped
to secure the conviction of Frank right or
wrong, but having faildd in this, they still
hope to obtain the political effect by mis
representation and false charges.
The same spirit which prompted the
Radical leaders and press to demand the
conviction of Andrew Johnson, without
regard to law and the evidence that
caused them to bully, denounce, and de
mand the resignation of Republican Sena
tors who refused to perjure themselves by"
convicting the President of high crimes and
misdemeanors contrary to the law and the
evidence for the purpose of securing to
that party the political benefit of such a
conviction now prompts the Statesman
aud Oregonian to demand the conviction
of Frank Vaughn in the same way. His
conviction would have resulted in ruin to
his father, as well as himself, and hence
beneficial to the Republican party. Hence,
however, unjust and unlawful the convic-
uoa migui ue in me estimation ot our
Republican moralists the end justifies the
means, and they howl because their devil
ish desires were not satisfied.
If there is any wrong in this matter
which cries to Heaven, and cries loudly
too. it is the attempt to influence courts
and juries for partizen purposes, and in
directly, or indirectly charging perjury
upon juries who do not render verdicts for
the benefit of the Republican politicians
in accordance with such partizan de
mands. With such attempts to tamper with
courts, many Republican politicans are
certainly chargeable. It is wrong and
ought to be discontinued.

Clackamas Jcstice. At the late term
of Court in Clackamas County, a poor de
vil who shot at a man with evil intent and
missed him. was found guilty- and sent to
the penitentiary for one year ; but young
Vaughn who deliberately murdered his
man m cold blood, shooting him down
and shooting after he was down, is pro
nounced innocent. We do not mean to
say that this is the average of justice in
Clackamas, for that would reflect heavily
upon the people ; but such is the result of
a Sheriff's solicitude to save his friends
from harm. The Democracy of the Sher
iff is sorelv put to the test, when he has to
send out his deputies with instructions to
pick a jury that could secure the desired
verdict. The people of Clackamas will
attend to it, however."
We find the above in the Oregon States
man of last Sunday, and it relates to the
conviction of J. LV Walsh. This is the
fourth shooting affair that Walsh has had in
this vicinity within the past two years ;
but heretofore always coming off with no
thing heavier than a fine, or imprisonment
in the county jail. But this time, be is
sent to the penitentiary for one year, and
at thi3 result the great moralist of the
Statesman is terribly shocked.
This shock is occasioned by the fact that
Walsh is a Republican. Had he been a
Democrat the great moralist would have
been still more terribly shocked because
he had not been sent for ten years, instead
of one. Nothing can occur now-a-days,
without the Radical press and leaders
seizing it and attempting to use it for the
benefit of their party. They even de
mand that Courts, and jurors perjure
themselves for the benefit of that corrupt
parly. But we are glad to know that
that demand is unheeded by some courts,
and jurors, at least.
