Langdon, the Murderer r Croaks and
Jei-j, Shel, and Harrison, Mnsncrtrd
of Bring an Accomplice, Hanged'
by Mob at rrlnevllle.
The murder of A. H. Crooks and his son-
in-law, S. J.-Jory, by Lucien Langdon, at
Big Willow Creek, Wasco county, on Wednes
day last, has culminated in a most shocking
display of mob vengeance. As soon as the
news of the murder was received, at Prineville,
a posse started out to capture the perpetrators.
They succeeded in. securing the horse and rifle
oi Langdon on Wednesday evening. On
Thursday evening he returned to his house to
change his clothing,, and as he was leaving he
was surrounded by man armed with Win
chester rifles, and compelled to surrender.
Langdon and his wife both begged that he
might be guarded from mob violence, which
his captors promised. He was taken to
Prineville and placed under guard in the
Jackson House, where he laid down on a
lounge in the corner of a room srud went to
sleep. Our correspondent at Prineville fur
nishes the following account of the subse
quent proceedings. In the mean tims,

Assembled at the ringing of the school bell,
and at about 5 o'clock in the morning, broke
into the hotel, overpowered the guards, and
one of the men struck Langdon two blows
over the head with a six-shooter, after which
he fired five shots at Langdon, three of which
took effect, death resulting instantly. And
just to show the marked coolness of the man
who did the shooting, it is enouuh to
say that afttr he had done the shooting, he
stepped hack a step or two and waited some
time to tee if his work was complete. Nor
was this the end of this fatal affair. A youn?

been around Langdon's for some time conduc

this awful affair three homes arc made des
olate and three widows and their children are
left to mourn the loss of husbands and fathers.
The Prineville News gives the fallowing ac
count of the murder: It appears that one L.
L. Langdon had had somo difficulty about a
piece of disputed land with two men living
near him by the name of Crooks and Jory.
Langdon went to theso men and compromised
matters with them, and the three run the
lines in an apparently satisfactory manner.
This was done in the moraine, and Lauedon
told Uroons and Jory that the business was
then settled. Crooks and hiB son-in-law (Jory)
then went to work on the disputed land, cut
ting wood. While they were gone to dinner
Langdon went to w here they had been at work
and waited for them to return. When the
men came from their dinner. Lansdon met
them at their work, and without any provo
cation shot and killed them both) Mr. Crooks
was shot in the right shoulder and breast, the
shot passing through his lungs, and killing
him almost instantly. Jory was shot in the
face, eleven buckshot entering there, and threo
Senetrating the brain. The wives of the mur
ercd men were looking on at a distance of a
quarter ot a mile, and saw the whole affair.
Word wus soon brought to town, telling of
the murder, and Justice Powers, acting as
coroner, and accompanied by several citizens,
repaired to the place where the killing was
done, and found the bodies just as they had
fallen when shot. No one had gone to the
bodies except their wives, who had approach
ed and placed their aprons over the hoads of
the dead. A jury was impaneled who return
ed a verdict that Crooks and Jory came to
their death by gunshot wounds inflicted by
From the following concerning Harrison, it
would appear as if he was not altogether in
At about five o'clock in the morning a band
(number not known) of armed and masked
men entered the hotel, instantly overpower
ing the officers. Langdon was called, and
upon being aroused, was riddled with bullets
instantly. Harrison was seized, taken from
the hotel, gagged, haltered and dragged to
the Crooked rivet bridge, a distance of per
haps a quarter of a mile, and his body hung
to the timbers of the bridge, where it was
found in the morning. Harrison admitted
being implicated in the murder of Crooks and
Jory. Upon hearing that Langdon had suc
ceeded in killing both men, he (Harrison) was
heard to exclaim " Bully for ua! Big Injun
me! ho laid 'em out 'just about right. And
these remarks were repeated before several,
in the pretence of the dead, and in hearing of
the wails of the poor widows and children of
the murdered men.
It appears that afte. Langdon got his fright
on Mill Cieek on Wednesday night, that he
succeeded in footing it back to his home, a
distauce of probably 15 miles, intending to
secure another horse and gun. As good for
tune had it the company who went to arrest
Harrison, intercepted him just as he was leav
ing hn home. He mot the boys and was in
their midst before he knew it. He very read

THE LISfKslLLF. TKAGEDV.
Depatr HherllT Uwl Killed by a Hob Who
Attempted to Take a Msoarr from
Ills Custody lo Lynch lllai.
The following account of the terrible
tragedy at Greenman's Hotel, Linkville,
which resulted in the death of a deputy
sheriff at the hands of a mob who were at
tempting to take H. C. Laws fiom his custody
for the purpose of lynching him, we copy
from the Ashland 2'uling. At tho inquest
held upon the liody of S. Lewis, C. S. Moore
testified as follows':
I was sitting in the hotel barroom, or office,
about 10 o'clock, was sitting near the door.
I heard an order given outside to halt. Wm
Wright, J. P., stepped to the door and
opened it. Some one outside ordered him to
go back and shut the door, which he did.
Just afterward the door opened and from
eight to ten men came in with guns cocked.
The leader said, "every man of vou sit still 1"
Just then Deputy Sheriff Lewis came into the
room from the hall. When the order was
given to sit down he knelt on one knee at tho
corner of the telegraph office, 'lhe leader
then said, "where is the prisoner ? wheto is
me constaDie; ne nas to go to Lookout. Air.
Wright, J. P., then spoke, and being asked
who he was, said, "I am justice of the peace
of this precinct. I warn you to desist." The
leader again asked him where the prisoner
was, and said he had o go to Lookout. Mr.
Wright then replied that the prisoner was
under strong guard and would be dealt with
according to law. The leader'said, "yes, you
will deal with him like you do here." Mr.
Wright said he believed he had generally
done his duty. The leader again demanded
the constable, and put the muzzle of the gun
in my face. I said, "I do not kuow where
he is. He is not here." The leader then
crossed the room, took a lighted candle from
the wall and tried to pass into the adjoiniug
UAuuit uc nas bum iiiivta iiua uu uiiu
there. Then he held the caudle to Ed. Reed,
saying, "Here, carry this candle aud you
shall not be hurt." Reed declined and the
leader, carrying the light, moved toward the
door of the hall, bidding his followers to move
He opened the hall door and started in,
Grcenman said, "I warn you uot to go in
there. As he stood on the threshold, some
one fired a shot from the direction of the
stairway. The candle was extinguished.
From the noise I thought someone fell in the
hall, The leader said, "That's all right boys,
stand your ground." The mob closed up to
ward the hall door. Just then another shot
was fired, which I think was the one that
killed Mr. Lewis. Another shot wa.i fired
almost instantly. Tho mob then re
treated rapidly, as did also the other in
mates of the room, until only three
or four were left. By this timo all
tho lights in the room wero out. After
being shot, Mr. Lewis rose up, holding his
thigh with both hands. He said, " Oh I oh !"
three or four times while standing, and then,
losing hold of his thigh, he fell upon the floor,
and I heard the gush of blood. We hastened
to his assistance with a light, but in five min
utes he was dead. The shot that killed him
seemed to como from the midst of the mob.
The weapon was a gun loaded with four bul
lets and held so close that it set his clothing
on fire arouud the wound. The leader of the
mob was a tall man, rather slender, with
sandy complexion, light beard, three or four
inches long on his chin, was 3d or 40 years
old, had a falsetto voice, wore a slouch hat,
was slightly disguised by blacking the face, as
were tho others. I knew none of the crowd.
Two guns were left iu the room by the mob
one barrel of each had recently been dis
charged. The cause of the sudden death of Officer
Lewis from the wound was the severing of tho
femoral artery, from which the blood spouted
in a torrent.
Tho persons in the office of the hotel at
the time the mob entered were i W. C.
Greenman, W. A. Wright, J. P. Samuel,
J. Lewis (deputy sheriff), Charles S. Moore,
Henry Striplin, Charley blade, E. U. Brooks,
Ed Reed and Mr. Sutliff, telegraph operator,
nearly all of whom were unharmed. The
deputy sheriff was killed without any excuse
whatever. He sat down, as did tho rest, when
ordered to by the leader of the mob, and was
still sitting when shot. Justice Weight, with
some others, went out a window, and was
shot in the muscle of the left arm afttr he
was outside of the hotel. It is believed that
one of the pirty nf lynchers was bacly wound
ed by the shot fired in the hall of the hotel,
but nothing positive is known concerning it,
except that blood was found, indicating that
one of the lynchers was hurt.
The excitement of Linkville is great, and
efforts will be made to discover the partici
pators in the mob. It is reported that t o
young men nf Alkali valley have been arrested
of being connected with the attempted lynch
ing. Tho examination of H. C. Laws was first
arranged to take place at Linkville last Mon
day, Gut, in consequence of the last tragedy,
it was postponed, and is not yet fairly begun.
Col. C. A. Cogswell, of Lakeview, will appear
as counsel for Laws, weare told.
lhe O. A C, It. U. Extension.
The work of construction on the extension
of the O. & C. R. R. Co's road to California
is being pushed forward with vigor, Nearly
900 Chinese laborers, says the Jacksonville
Sentinel, arc at work, some of them grading
as far south as the Robert's hill. Two tun
nels have been located, one through tho Cow
creek hill 2.800 feet in length, and the sec
ond through the Grave creek divide below
where it is crossed by the present stage i oad,
aud 3,300 feet long and approoched by an
open cut 1,000 feet long. Bids for construc
tion of both these tunnels were to have been
opened on Thursday, and it is thought then
will nut be finished before next Spring. If
this should ba the rose, the road will not be
finished lurther south than Cow creek this
year. It is thought that trains will be run
ning to Myrtle creek by the middle of
August. The saw mill on Myrtle creek is
now running and at work on timbers for the
two bridges at that point. Much change has
been made in the line of the road to Grave
creek and it is possible that when the country
is examined, a detour may be made that will
take the road through the "Pleasant" creek
divide and bring it to Rogue river at the
mouth of Evans creek. This is mere con
jecture, however, and only to be determined
by the survey. During April, when the
weather settles it is expected that there will
be a force of several tl.outand men put to
work and lit ely times along the line may be
looked for. Comstock k Miller have pur
chased a steam pile driver which will be at
work along the line of the railroad extension
in a few days.
Died. Mr. Isaac Mitchell, one of the pio
neers of the State, who settled in Marion
county in 1840, and has been engaged in mer
cantile business there for 33 years, died sud
denly at his residence at St. Louis on Sunday
night of congestion of the lungs, aged 03
years. His remains were brought to this city
