Tho Crescent City Courier has re
ceived Mr. Siulin's recent effusions,
nml draws tho following conclusions :
" Coos Hay must bo a nice place to
emigrate to. If wu are to judge the
condition of things from the showing
nude by tho newspapers of that sec
tion, it is not likely that those in
search of homes will be attracted very
strongly in that direction. The fol
lowing extract is from an editorial
in the Coos liny AVn:"
Then follows an extract bom (ho
AVirn in which it is stated that tho la
borer is "not pei milled to bundle his
own wages." "No money is put in
eiiciilation." "Should a laborer de
mand coin, he would soon find him
self discharged and a Chinaman in
his place," and either M-.tcments of a
similar character. It is a misfortune
to Coos county to have such false rep
reseutatiouscircuhited. Hut wu sup
thc sacrifice is necessary in order that
Mr. Siglin may be elected. Persons
abroad who read these things should
take intoconsideration that the writer'
is a lawyer, and is running for office
or thinks ho is.

It would seem that bo has made

In answer to said communication,
r will simply refer him and all others
interested in my olllcial acts while in
San Francisco to tho articlo copied
front tho S. F. Alia in tho Coast Mam,
during last October.
Now, as to my olllcial acts while in

I would like to ask this overgrown
and infamous falsillor if hu has any
recollection of what took place when
a certain young woman of Curry
county was arrested for the murder of
her infant child. I would ask the
shapeless brute if ho did notpiotcnd

this poor woman was in custody so
frequently that your visits attracted

(How thoughtful!) Tho door was

He laid his lecherous paws upon her

moved out of the door. Another ev
idence of tho superiority of thorough
breds over scrubs. The deputy sher

unfortunate woman in tears, and up
on inquiry received a similar version
to tho above.
This was the woman that he says I
selected my brother-in-law to take

A San Francisco dispatch of tho
2.1d, brings tho 'following particulars
of tho killingof DoYoungbyKalloch :
"Just before 8 o'clock this evening
Charles DoYoung cntored tho busi
ness ollieo of tlio Chronicle on tho
ground floor on tho corner of Hush
and Kearney streets, and stood talk
ing with hoiiio gentlemen, leaning
against a counter. Directly the door
opened nnd I, M. Kalloch entered,
and drawing a pistol without, as far
as can bo learned, speaking n word,
began firing at DoYoung. Tho latter
ran through a gato in the counter to
a desk inside, Kalloch firing at him
ns ho ran. On reaching tho desk Do
Young turned (o face his opponent
with a pistol in his hand, when Kal
loch, leaning over the counter, fired
again, tho ball striking DoYoung in
the mouth. Kalloch then started for
tho door. DoYoung raised his pistol
as if to fire, but apparently his
strength failed him for tho pistol was
not discharged, and sinking back
ward ho fell on tho floor. Hyslanders
ran to his assistance, but tho ball had
evidently pierced tlio huso of tho
brain, and in a few moments he ex
pired. As Kalloch ran out of the
door ho was seized by a citizen, and
at the same moment an ollleer came
up and took him into custody and
conducted him to tho city prison,
where he was locked up.
News of tho murder flew through
the city liko the wind, and in a few
moments the streets in the vicinity of
the Chronicle office were crowded with
people eager to learn tho particulars
of tho affair. Policemen were at once
stationed at the doors of the ofliecto
keep out the inquisitivo crowd, and
only a few personal friends and re
porters were adinittc I. In the rear
of the office, M. If. DoYoung, brother
of tho deceased, reclined on a lounge
surrounded by friends, evidently over
come by tho tragedy, hut with dry
oyer and calm though strained voice.
He was not present at tho time of the
shooting, having left home after din
ner a few moments later than diaries.
Deceased lay on his back pnthp'lloor,
his face and breast dabbled Tri blood,
his eyes closed and his face bearing
the calm expression noticeable in the
case of thoso (lying from shot wounds
Only ono wound was found on his
person, although at least four shots
wcro fired by Kalloch, two having
ing pierced the glass doors and parti
tion of the office. A third lodged in
a window casing.
Young Kalloch on being arrested
was, as the arresting officer remarked,
the coolest man he oversaw, lie still
carried the smoking pistol in his
hand, which ho surrendered to the
officer. On his way to the station
house he observed strict reticence,
and on being shown to his cell, posi
tively refused to have any intercourse
whatever with representatives of the
In the absence of any explanations
from tho assassin of the causes of the
act, it is generally understood to be
attributable to a pamphlet which has
been recently circulated about tho
city attacking Mayor Kalloch, tho
father of De Young's slayer. During
his recent visit east it is believed that
the deceased devoted a great deal of
attention to gathering up matter in
regard to tho past lifo of Mayor Kal
loch, for tho presumed purpose of
either using it at tho expected trial of
tho deceased on a charge of shooting
Kalloch last August, or of making it
subservo journalistic purposes. Tho-
pamphlet above referred to was a doc
ument of some sixty pages, and re
counted the details of the Kalloch
scandal in Hoston and other matter
of a scandalous nature Tho pamph
let was anonymous, but young Kal
loch evidently considered that de
ceased was responsible for its publica
tion, and acted accordingly.
Further inquiry shows that young
Kalloch fired livo shots at DeYoung,
of which only one, tho fourth, took
efi'cct. Otherwise tho original report
of tho affair seems to bo substantially
correct. It is evident that tho deed
was deliberate. Officer Xoyes states
that a few moments beforo DoYoung
entered tho office ho saw Kalloch
walk along Kearny street and peer
ing through a window of tho Chroni
cle counting room. Ho was evidently
waiting for tho arrival of his victim.
At about quarter past 9 tho coronor's
assistants took the body from where
it had been lying on the floor awaiting
his examination and removed it to a
wagon for conveyance to tho morgue.
Tho crowd in the mean timo had in
creased to a thousand, blocking up
both Kearney and Hush streets. It
was composed of all clashes, evidently
including a great many of sand lot
proclivities, and as tlio body was
brought out, cheers, howls and ejacu
lations of exultation and derision
arose. Tlio coroner's wagon, escorted
hy a squad of police, drove at once to
tho morgue, followed by a hooting,
whistling and yolling mob. Tho de
monstration was confined merely to
words, no action of a violent nature
occurring, (in arriving at tlio morgue
a crowd gathered thoro, for a while
continuing its demonstrations, but I
soon disporsed and tho olllcers rotired.
The conduct of tho mob called forth
many exprussious of indignation and
disgust front the moro rospobtablo by
Htandoro, but thuru was nothing whal
over lending towards any broach of
peace. A great concourso still lin
gered in tho vicinity of the Chronicle
oflico discussing tho affair, hut an
alarm of firo several blocks distant
drow many of them away at about
Tho pamphlet previously referred
to proves upon examination to he
simply a full report of the trial of
I. S' Kalloch in the case of the Boston
scandal, with a briuf preface to the
effect that it was published with no
malicious motives, but simply to give
a plain, unvarnished report of tho
trial. It horo tho imprint of " Eber
hen it Co., Hoston, 1857," hut was ev
idently a fresh publication. It seems
to be admitted that tho document was
issued with a view of influencing pub'
lie opinion in connection with tho ap
proaching trial of Do Young, and it
may perhaps have been furthor in
tended to have had some bearing on
more immediate issues.
It will be remembered that the
Chronicle "raited" its office about
ten days ago. Tho Tyographiepl Un
ion and tho Amalgamated Trades
Union took up the fight for tho dis
charged printers, and have placarded
the city with appeals to tho public: to
withdraw patronage from the paper,
and have published advertisements to
the same effect in interior journals. A
mats meeting was advertised for to
morrow evening to denounce the
course of the Chronicle, which was to
have been addressed hy Mayor Kal
loch, among others, and it is possible
that tho pamphlet was designed to
have effect on this present quarrel, as
well as on the coming trial of De
Young. When the coroner's wagon bearing
the body of DoYoung turned from
Kearney street into Market, the crowd
made a sort of rush that had the ap
pciiranco of being directed at the wa
gon. It might have been merely the
natural surge of the concourse follow
ing the wagon on meeting the crowd
gathered on .Market, but the police
viewing it as an attempt at violence,
used their clubs freely, beating back
tho crowd and indicting severe pun
ishment on the most forward. Aside
irom nits incident mere lias been no
signs of violence and no occasion for
the service of the police except in
keeping back the press, barge
throngs still linger around the Chron
icle office, a:td at the main and branch
offices of the Call and at the morgue,
quietly discussing the affair and wait
ing with the usual morbid interest to
hear any further particulars obtain
able. It is as yet too early to gauge the
general expression of public opinion
of the tragedy, but so far as could bo
learned from talk beard upon the
street this evening, its tenor seemed
to bo that the death of DeYoung at
the bands of the son, was tho lcgita
matc. outgrowth of the recent attack
of the deceased upon the father.
Accokiung to the latest reports
from Skagct the snow is still very
deep on IUiby and other creeks
where mining claims have principal
ly besn located. It is consequently
impossible to accomplish anything
in the diggings at present. Some
twenty miners arrived here on the
Chehalis on Monday evening from
the head of navigation. They re
port the river rising rapidly, the wa
ter at present being so high as to
admit of steamers going up as far
as the mouth of Sauk river. Mr.
McCausland, who has a trading
post near the portage, brought down
$200 in gold dust taken out near
tho mouth of I'uby creek, Ono fa
vorable indication is that all that
have visited tho mines so far(includ
ing several hundred men, ninny of
whom arc old miners), are sufficient
ly satisfied with prospects to retnrn
as soon as the season opens, with
out exception so far as observed.
