A SAD AFFAIR.
Sirs. J. C Sk in mors Takes
Her Own Li IV.
FOUND IN AN IRRIGATING DITCH.
Deian(1ncy Supposed to be the Cause
of the Aot Verdict of tUo Cor
On Monday morning nliout 0 o'clock
as Geo. Hudson was coming down town
he discovered the Ixxly of a woman, with
her hands tied behind her Imck, lying
in the irrigating ditch running along C
street in front of .1. C. Summers' resi
dence. He immediately informed other
partiet and soon several men were on
the scene. The lxwly was taken out and
placed on the sidewalk. The face was
covered with mud, bill investigation
soon found it to be that of Mrs. J. 0.
Summers, the milliner. The news
spread from ear to ear and soon the
whole town was apprised of the sad
news, and many flocked to the scene, as
upon the impulse of the moment hardly
anv one could In'lieve that what thev
bad heard was true, but alas it was too
true. As the many friends viewed the
prostrate form lying on the sidewalk
they could not help but give vent to
tears. But imagine the feelings of the
husband and daughter, upon lieing
wakened in the morning, to iind their
wife and mother lying in this condition.
The sudden shock to Maude was very
severe and she has heen m an almost
helpless condition ever since.
It is supposed that the deceased had
been worrying over imaginary financial
diiliculties for some time past, and had
got her mind worked up to such a pitch
as to cause her to commit the rash act.
It appears that she had gotten up early
in tne morning and in some manner
tied her hands behind her with a towel
and proceeded to the ditch and threw
herself in face down, and deliberately
strangled herselt to death. 1 lie water
was only six or eight inches deep and it
must have required a very strong will
power to keep her head under water, as
with verv little effort she could have
extricated herself from the ditch.
Justice Wilson, acting in the absence
of the coroner, summoned a iurv and
proceeded to investigate the matter.
The jury remained in session mostof the
day and night, and part of Tuesday,
taking testimony. Following is the
verdict of the jury:
In the matter of the inquest upon the
body of Mrs. .1. C. Summers, deceased.
Wo, the undersigned iurv. heretofore
empaneled to inquire into the cause of
the death ot Mrs. C. hummers, Iind
that the person named is Mary E. Sum
mers, wife of J. ( Summers'; that she
lino to her death on the 5th dav of
October, 185)1, at Union, Union county,
Oregon, by voluntarily drowning her
self in a ditch of water," and further find
that no crime has been committed, re
sulting in her death.

Drs. Cromwell of Union and Dwinnell
of La Grande also examined the bod v and
corrolxirato the verdict, of the jury.
The funeral took place at 2 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon from the M. E. church
services being conducted by Rev. AVoods.
The remains were followed to the grave
by a large number of sorrowing friends
and the husband of the unfortunate
woman, the family having no relatives
in this section. The husband and
daughter have the sympathy of the en
tire community in their sad bereave
ment. The deceased was one of tho most
highly respected ladies of this community
and was holovcd hy all who Knew nor.
A HORRIBLE ACCIDENT.
J. B. Montgomery Meets a Terrlblo Death
Whllo Digging a Well.
One of the most terrible accidents
ever known in this community occurred
AVodnesday evening, resulting in tho
death of Jennings B. Montgomery, by
the caving in of a well. At ulxait (5
o'clock in tho evening ho descended into
a well, climbing down tho walls which
were constructed of round bowlders

surface ono of tho rocks in the wall gavo

rock and earth about four feet in depth
Aid was summoned with all possible
speed, and willing hands rendered all
possible aid. Tho narrow quartern only
permitted one person to work at a time,
and when a large part of tho rocks had
been removed another crash of tho walla
buried him still deeper. For two lioura
and a half ho could bo heard ami under
stood. Ho told them ho could breatho
with great difficulty and implored them
to rumovo the weight that was crushing
him to death. At half past eight a
smothering cry told tho awful story of
his fate. It was nearly two hours later
before tho mass was cleared away. Tho
luxly was in an upright tHjsition and ono
arm was thrown over tho head. It is

MURDER AT LA ORANDE.
A Drunken Stranger Murdered in a Sa
i loon at La Grande.
It now transpires that the man, Pat
rick Sheener, who fell dead in a chair at
the Ixlge saloon in La Grande on Tues
day morning of last week, was killed by
lieing severely beaten by the bartender
named Abner Hall, and that his death
was caused bv blows administered bv
Hall with u bottle during the night or
early in the morning. It is said the
man, a new comer, had been treating in
tho saloon until his monev ran out and
was then allowed credit by the bartend
er, loward morning the latter de
manded i.'Jo; the drunken stranger re
fused to pay, and was struck and
knocked down by the bartender, his
head striking the foot railing of the bar.
He was taken into a back room, came
out again and tried to go outside, but
was not allowed to do so. He then sat
down in a chair, but soon fell out, roll
ing upon the lloor. He was again re
moved to the room and the door locked,
and the boys hoard those present say he
Hall skipped out, but was overtaken
at Huntington and brought back to
Union. A man by the inline of Andrew
Johusan was also arrested as being an
Accessory to the crime. Khner Graham,
Geo. Duncan and John Morrison, colored
song and dunce artists" who were hold
ing forth in the saloon, were witnesses
to the affair and took the train for the
west. They were overhauled at Pendle
ton and brought back. There wero also
two other parties, Wm. Cavinaugh and
Cy Graham, who were hold as witnesses.
An examination of the case was hold-
Monday before Justice ICnowles, of La
Grande, who bound them over to appear
before the next grand jury. They failed
to give bonds and wero brought to Un
ion Monday evening and placed in the
An Interesting Book.
The well-known writer and historian,
Mr. J. AV. Buel, author of "Tho Beauti
ful Story," "The Story of Man," "Tho
Living AVorld," "Russia and Siberia,"
etc., has just completed what is proba
bly the greatest of his works, entitled
"Heroes of Unknown Seas and Savage 1
Lands." The work is a complete record
of the discovery of all lands, and con
tains descriptions of the first visits
made by Europeans to the wild races of
the world. The descriptions of the
superstitions appertaining to tho sea
and the obstacles which strango beliefs
opposed to extended voyages are most
interesting and instructive. The work
also comprises an authentic history of
the discovery of America by the ATiking
Sea-Hovers, and its settlement by the
ScnndinaviniiH in tho ninth century. It
is supplemented with thrilling narra
tives of voyages, discoveries, ad
ventures, battles, darings and sufferings
of all the heroic characters and lwld ex
plorers who have made ocean history,
and who have established supremncy
over the most savage lands of the earth.
The book, which is a most instructive
and interesting one from cover to covor,
contains 000 large quarto pages, and is
embellished with more than .'iOQ original
engravings and several largo uouoie
page colored plates, drawn especially
for the work by tho most famous artists
of the day. It is elegantly lxiund, and is
a IxKik which should certainly find a
plane in every family.
The. Dominion Publishing Co., of Van
couver, British Columbia, are tho gen
eral agents for the work, and their
advertisement in relation thereto will
be found in another column.
Most of the children of II. C. Emery,
of this city, wero gathered together Sun

A Chinaman by the name of Ah Foo
was killed by one of his countrymen,
named Ah Hy, at John Day last week.
Several Chinamen were partners, and
their house was alout three-quarters of a
mile below Chinatown. It appears that
Ah Hy and Ah Foo, of the number,
were working in a mining claim togeth
er, but had been gambling on the night
of the tragedy. They returned to the
house after the others had retired, and
Ah Hy was no doubt waiting for Ah Foo
at the door, for the cook and some others
heard an uproar, and on making a light
found Ah Foo lying under the table in a
pool of blood gasping, a large blood
stained knife near him and Ah Hy
somewhere around. Ah Foo was ques
