Character in Oregon.
Boise, June 5. Word has jnst been
telephoned in from Council Valley,
that "Hair Oil Pete," whose real
name is H. M. St. Cyr, shot and in
stantly killed A. Bdmond, at the head
of Payett Lake Thursday morning.

rel arose over mining property and
that St. Cyr shot Edmond in self-defense,
the ball entering the right oye.
St. Cyr came to Meadows and gave
himself up and was taken to Weiser
by Deputy Sheriff Enoch Smith.
St. Cyr formerly lived in Boise
where ho followed the occupation of
mining engineer and promoter. Ho
has been connocted with tho Thunder
Mountain mining district since it

ly called, run a locomotive on the O.
R. & N. out of La Grande from 18SS
to 1894, and while on a helper engine
between Pendleton and Kamela, lived
in this city.
Ho was known to bo handy with a
gun, an adventurous, eccentric char
acter, and ready for a fight, yet was
never aggressive nor quarrelsome.
He was tho hero of many exciting
adventures in the early days of the
O. It. & K. He saved a collision on
tho mountain by dashing down tho
road on a helper in the rear of a
freight train, stopping It before it
met a passenger train coming up tho
inn. The trains had a lap order ana
were only a mile apart when St. Cyr
overtook tho freight and warned
them of the mistaken order.)
