A Fori- MunnicR. The Portland papers
aro filled with the details of a murder
which occurred alsut four miles above
that city last Saturday morning. It seems
that two men, well known in that citv,
named Douglass Thomas and Ihomas It
lavis. were stooping in a cabin and en
trailed in chopping cord wood. About 2
o'clock Saturday morning the man
Thomas came to police headquarters in
the citv and related that near midnight.
while he and his companion were sleen
imr. some one ranped at the door, awak
ening them. Thomas suspecting no danger
trixx ni1 onened the uoor. when two
man, masked with gunny sacks over their
hads. entered the cabin, una or mem
presented a cocked pistol at Thomas' head
ana oraeren mm to remain quiet on pain
of instant death. 1 ha other nicked up
hatchet lying on the cabin floor and ap
Troachinir Davis, who was lying on the
bed. and asked him: "Is your name
Thomas D. Davis?" Davis replied, "Yes,
and von have irot the drop on me. mi
out saving a word the man dealt Davis
four or five heavy blows on the head
with the murderous implement, literally
choppinir his skull to pieces. He then

this time Thomas savs h was compelled
to stand bv and witness this horrible
butchery. The other man stood by with
a cocked pistol at his head, and to have
given an alarm or made the least move
would have Iveen his death warrant
Thomas was then taken outside bv his
guard, while the other proceeded to tire
the cabin, lie was then released, when
he started for the city. When Chief Lap
lHMis arrived at the scene of the murder,
lie found the cabin almost entirely con
sumed and the remains of the murdered
man all burned up except a very small
iKtrtion of the llesh, and the bones crum
bled to ashes as soon as touched. The
Coroner was notitiod and an inquest held,
but no new facts were elicited. A thor
ough search failed to reveal any trace of
the perf,etrators of the deed or any clue by
which they could he apprehended. The
muraereu man is sain to nave oeen an in
dustrious and peaceable citizen. He was
about 4." years of ago. Several years airo
he resided in canyon City, and prior to
coming to Portland was separated from

with three cheers for Hayes and Wheeler.

The Late George LaRocque.
find the following sketch of the
lamented Geo. LaRocque, from the pen of
W. II. Rees, of Buttoville, in the Oregon
ian of the 2d :
Mr. Georgo LaRocque, lato of Oregon
Cit', who died at Oakland, Cal., on the 23d
nit., was born near Montreal, Canada, in
1KJ0. Came to tho United States in lSVi.
Went to St. Louis, Missouri, in the spring j
of 173'J, where in the following full he en- I
tered the service of the American Fur Co.,
starting at once for Fort Pierre on the
Missouri river. Some time after, he was
sent to Fort Laramie. Being an expert in
the use of the rltle, he was promoted to
the position of hunter, whose duty it was
to furnish the fort with meat. This posi
tion commanded a considerable advance
in his wages. Mountain men, like those
in t.ho more civilized pursuits of life, were
paid in proportion to the value of the ser
vices which they were capable of per
forming. Georiro LaRocque was an
energetic, resolute mountaineer, and
for his discreetness and well known
courage, was frequently emplo3'ed by the
company as expressman in making "long
hazardous journeys. On one of those oc
casions he started from Fort Laramie
with the annual express for St. Louis, by
way of Fort Pierre, at which point there
was some slight hope of reaching in time
to meet the company's steamboat return
ing from the "Yellowstoue with a cargo of
peltries. If successful, would leave his
mule and take passage for his destination.
The distance, 320 miles, he dashed off in
consecutive hours, barely reaching the
post in time to accomplish nis object.
Mr. LaRocque continued this lite on the
plains till 1S47, when, after having experi
enced eight years of wild, exciting lite on
the eastern base of the Rocky Mountains,
he turned his face toward the setting sun,
crossed the country, and in tho tall re
joined his old comrade, F. X. Matthieu, in
the vallev ot the lllamette.
During the tirst gold excitement which
swept through this valley like a prairie
tire, in too tan or ib4S, :ur. jjauocque took
passage on the old briir ilenrv for the
new "Golden Gate." After several months
spent in prospecting, with the usual suft
cess of the inexiverienced miner of the
early days of California, ho went to Feath
er river, where he soon alter had the trood
fortune to strike a rich pocket. from which
in a few days he scooped out some S12.000
and returned to Oregon in 1S41J.
In the spring of lsol he became a mem
ber of the mercantile linn of F. X. Mat
thieu A Co., at Butteville, with which he
was associated for several v-ears. He tin
ally embarked in the wheat trade and
milling business at Oregon Citv, in which
he was engaged at the time ot his death
Notwithstanding 31 r. jjaitocquo had re
ceived little or no earl3' advantages from
the schools, lio was a very correct and
successful business man, having accumu
lated a very considerable fortune. He
leaves a wife, daughter and three sons to
mourn their loss.
His name is enrolled on the register of
the Pioneer Association, whos-j old mem
bers aro fast giving way to later genera

Editor- Enterprise: I find mysel
under tho necessity of explaining and
apologizing in regard to the bone disco v
er3' of this place. First, in the committee's
report they acknowledge finding a bone
but 1 hnd iivun their reply and otherwise
that they have loiind several conspicuous
anions' which is lue law bone ot an ass
which they seem to think they used as ef
fectually as Sampson did. Tho reason o
their raising so many in so short a time
was, tuev used steam powder, l lie bone
of which I spoke is called in English, the
bone ot contention, in which thev seem b
be greatly interested yet. The committee
say they found the ground hard, (thej'
should have added, and their tools soil)
butthev reached a depth of six feet and
found a species of anti-ueluvian man. Now
we would advise the committee to exca
vate a ebster s dictionary and sec what
inii' means. Toe trenileineii sav als
that t lie specimen found had nasal organs
plural, von see. Jvow we would like to
know how many. Thov say also the head
was hard to make an impression on.' .Ni
doubt it would be hard to break a rock
wiih a u'otird. Now for mv epol.itrv: O
1 tin- Li-'"lleii;en said that I intimated
that he mliiht s;iv sometime' s-iilv. an
that he. on election limes, became well
known all over the county, and of course
did not like the insinuation very well
.now i am sorry it i gave tins impressioi
to any one. But thinking he was so well
known, all would know that he could not
make a silly remark.

that a line court house could be 'built
without increasing the tax in a eountv.
That is rather thin. Now we wish to sav
to the tax-payers of tiiis county that if
they will re-locate the county 'seat and
place it at this point (New Era), the leal
estate holders will donate enough real
state to build a court house without cost
ing the eountv one cent, and will furthe:-

give it to the county free of cost, until
such times as the propert- donated will
sell for enough to build it.
