" TRAGEDY AT WALDO.
Tho quiet old town of Waldo, in the
southwestern part of the county, was
the scene of an u.gly trauedy last Sun
day evening. Cal Grilllu shot and
instuntly klllod Ed. Johnson. Bad
whiskey figured promi ifly in the
affair and was tho direct causo of the
shooting. Johnson was about 42 years
of age and Griffin is (13 years of age.
Both men wero miners and havo been
employed in various Josephine county
mines for ceverul years jiast.
From information gathered from
liarties who were at Waldo at the
time, It seems that Johnson and Griffin,
with few others, were drinking.
Johnson, upurently, had Ihtu look
ing for trouble all day and at last
found a man who was priqiared to
accommodate him. He ls'gau quur
reling with Griffin and grew more
disagreeable as he ls-came more and
more under the influence of liquor.
Griffin finally told him to "shut up"
whereniHin Johnson struck Griffin a
numlier of severe blows in the face,
blacking his eyes, breaking his nose
and disfiguring his countenance
Griffin was lingered to frenzy at
this and drawing his revolver began
shooting. He fired three shots, two
of which took effect, one ssing
through Johnson's neck striking the
spinal column. The other bullet
pierced his side. Tho first shot, or
at least what is considered to be the
first, glanced from his side and did
no damage. It is on this point that
there was a disagreement ou ihn part
of witnesses, as some slate that the
second and third shots were find
while Johnson was attempting to flee,
thus entering his back. As the evi
dence from tho examination of the
coroner's jury was not sufficient to
h cide this jsiint a post mortem cx-
imination was held Wednesday. Dr.
Kremer, with Prosecuting Attorney
Ketones, went out and after swearing
a jury, disinterred the Isuly and held
a sist-morlem exainiuat ion.
Immediately after the shooting Grif
fin gave himself up and awaited the
arrival of Sheriff I w is who was no
tified of tliu tragedy by telephone.
Griffin was brought In Tuesday night
and pnlccd in the Josephine county
jail to await trial (it the coming term
of circuit court.
