THE CANYON CITT ROAD.
We publish below the proceedings
of a meeting of the citizens of the
5)allo8, held at the Court House, on
Thursday evening, for the purpose of
.. taking action as to. the best manner
of ridding the road bonce to Canyon
City of the thieving bands of Snake
- Indians that now infest It. The roeol
ing was largely attended, and the ut
most interest was felt among those in
attendance, that something should bo
done, and that speedily, to rendor this
great artery of our trade secure from
a repetition of fuoh wholesalo murders
and robberies as has boon perpetrated
on the. line of the road for the past
two years.. The committee appointed
',. to wait ou Gen. Steele and' represent
to him the condition of the country,
and the insecurity of trado and travel
on the road, will visit Vancouver to
. day to discharge the duties assigned
them, and it is earnestly hoped that
the Commanding Ganoral wilt readily
see the necessity of immediately send"
iog more- troops in thai direction.
Than the John Day country there is
no richer mineral region on the Pacific
; Mope, and thus far its treasure ties
dormant for the reason, that small
parties dare nob venture out to pros,
poet, from the faot that their lives are
endangered; thereby. Wo know of
oneioitanco where a. gentleman liv
ing in Canyon City, employed a man
to go about ten miles from the town,
to prospect a quartz ledge, and at the
same time hired three men to guard
him while prospering. It was at this
time that the rich ct-nnabar lead was
discovered by one of the guard while
aaoonding a peak, to look out foe In
" Tho troops. stationed: at Camp Wat
son during the past two years have
done good' service, considering '.heir
limilod number, and it only needs a
lew such camps-at other points of the
road. to give all the protection neo
cssary for the safety ot travel bence
to , Canyon City. The expedition
which is to leave Fort Boise undor
Major Marshall, this- summer, for tho
Harney Like country, will, no doubt,
do good servioe; but- past experience
has demonstrated that the appearance
of troops in the Lake-country tends
to exasperate tbe savages, ffhoV they
more (ban. double- tbeir depredations
on unguarded' points of the Canyon
Oity r-oadi. We havo no fears but that
Gen. Steele, after properly understand
ing the situation, will (to what in. bis
judgment be deems best for the pros
teetioa of our people,, an therefore
we leave tbe matter entirely to the
committee to- give him tbe noeossary
Another Ciiaptkb of Chimb. Wo
are compcllod this morning to add an
other to the long lint of fntal truge
dies, that have phocked the commu
nity for the past two years. Kouben
Raymond and, John 0. Clark "wore
both members'of the company of Ada
county volunteers, recently returned

Last Monday there was a suit had in
Justice's court, growing out of a con
tract with the man wbo furnished
transportation lor the company on (he
campaign, littymona wu one ot tno
wiinoNKOA in the suit. About nine
o'clock Tuesday morning Raymond
nnd another man hud a dispute in re
gard to the testimony given by Ray-
ninnd. Alter sonio words had passed,
Clark took a hand in the conversation,
which by thin time grew to bo a quart
tel. and the lie passed between Clark
and Raymond. Clark then made a
rush at Raymond and struck him or
at him, Raymond dodging and draw.
ing hta pistol. Clark then drew his
pistol. Some person now came out of
the Bank Exchange saloon near by,
and was about to tako the pistol from
Clark who refused to give it up.
Raymond said, " don't be afraid, I'm
not going to shoot." Clark now toid
Raymond to shoot. Raymond rophod
" I don't want to shoot; I'll givo you
the first shot," at which Clark snapped
bis revolver, some of tho witnesses
say onco, and some twice. Tho third
time, taking dehborate aim, ho shot
Raymond through the abdomen.
