MURDERED WHILE
PEACEFULLY SLEEPING
N. M Jennings Shot to Death in
Hie Cabin e-t Granite
Hill.
Josephine County hai one mote
murder to add to Its already too long
lilt of crimes Last rriday In the
early hours of the morning, N. M.
Jeuuiugi wai murdered In his bed,
four children occupying the cabin at
the time the murder wai committed
Although District Attorney Realties
hai examined 30 or more wltnotaes
no clue sufficient to warrant an arreat
hai been discovered.
Jeuuiugi wai a wood contractor for
the Granite dill mine and had In
his employ ahont 15 men ontting and
hauling wood. He wai a periodical
drinker and wai said to be a bad man
while drunk, although thli is die
puted by somu. He bad been to
Grants Pan on a druuk and war
flourishing a hand full of gold
twenties a few dayi before the mur
der and it is thought by some thai
robbery was the cause of the crime.
The mnrdered man wai shot at close
range with a 30-80 Winche'ter In
the lianda of sou.e person in the room,
the top of the murdered man's head
being torn completely away. A lin
gular cirenmstarce is that the four
children, two girls, sleeping in a
room separated from the one Jeu
uiugi occupied by only a thin parti
lou, and the boys sleeping in the loft
should not havo been awakened by the
shot wheu it was distinnly heard by
a man working on tho night shift al
the in I no.
Although every effort possible has
been made to obtain some nine that
would lead to the discovery of the
guilty partlei, nothing has reached
the public. The examination ol
witnesses done in lecret session and
the district attorney only knows tin
results. Mr. Reamei wai obliged to
return to Jacksonville Weduosday but
will take np the case later.

JOSEPHINE COUNTY TO
HAVE NEW JAIL
Present Structure Too Sme.ll
Eight Men Confined in
Two Cells.
Eight bad men are crowded to
gether in a 13-foot apace at thecoonty
jail, the i)iace being divided into two
oils with a corridor extending the
entire length. There la now ueed
for larger qnartera in order to keep
the prisoners separated. Five of the
men now confined are chaiged with
the robbery of McCroskey'i itore last
month. The other three wer' lodged
'here this week to await the Septem
ber term of circuit court, awaiting
trial on a charge of robl ery. They
were arrested for stealing a grip be
longing to a traveling man who
boarded the Sunday night train and
left bis grip inside the car door for a
lew moments. The grip disappeared
and after an all-night search three
young men ranging in age from 21
to 24 years were lodged in jail.
They are each under $250 bonds.
The county court lias called for
ealed bidi for the construction of a
jail, the bonds to be opeued at the Bd
journed meeting of the court, Oc
tober 9.
There is eome talk about con
structing the old fashioned wood
cells, reserving the iteel cells in the
old jail for the desperate clasa ot
criminals. Now that a new jail is to
be built it should be of the best kind,
thoroughly up-to-date in every par
ticular and of a permanent nature.
We have bud too many makeshifts
aud things that will answer the im
mertiatfl purpose, already. Let every
dollar invested be put into permanent
work.

Supervisor Replies to "Shorty."
Editor Courier : September the 8th
an article appeared ligued "Shorty,"
saying that in this district not
a shovelful was put on the road tliia
year.
Evidently "Shorty" is ignorant of
what hai been done on the road of this
district, or else he is trying to tell a
deliberate falsehood. He says "aud
still the county pays cah for road
tax." Shorty must be one of those
who likes to work the road, by lean
ing against the shovel and tell stories.
I think the present roa-i law the best
ever enacted, because if a man does
not work, the supervisor can tell bim
to get. Now, Mr. Shorty, why put
the responsibility on the jndge'B
shoulders nnd not call on the ccunty
court to investigate.?
