tho head man of one of tlio Coqulllelish

Randolph in tho boat and Frlck did not
and objected to Hhorldan taking the

which Hhorldan loft and Frlck, not real
izing tho extent of his Injuries, went to a

aroused tho landlord, complained of
feeling unwell about tho stomach nnd
asked for n hot toddy. Ho was covered
with blood and presented such a allock
ing appearance that an examination

tho fact that ho bad been severely
atnbbed In several places about the
breast and once in thu pit of the stom

As soon as ijssiblo Frlck was taken

but bo did not reach thero until Friday
afternoon, nearly 18 hours after his
wounds woro received, and by that time
that jMirlion of bis bowels that had pro
truded through tho cut In his abdomen
had become so swollen that to put them
back It Ix'caino necessary to enlarge the

Tho doctor Is accredited with express

More of the Huntley Suicide.
Southwest Oregon Recorder, Sept. 2.J
About 5 o'clock last Tuesday morn
mg Jeff AAiIson, while on lira way to
Port Orford, stopped at Milton Hunt
loy's placo on Sixes river. Receiving
110 response to his knock upon tho door,
ho entered tho houso and. found Hunt
ley lying, upon the floor, near a bed,
dead. Young AVilson immediately re
turned to Divelbisa' place, not far dis
tant, and informed Uiat gentleman of
what ho had seen, whon together tho
two returned to tho scene of horror nnd
found tho unfortunate man as described
The top of his head was literally shot
off, and tho brains scattered over tho
floor for n space of two feet. Tho body
was rigid and it required considerable
effort to release his hold upon the rifle ;
it was therefore evident that tho fatal
shot was fired at or beforo midnight.
A most singular featuro in tho case
was tho fabttttat41e-two youngest sons
of tho suicido were in bed asleep, not
two feet nwny, And were not awakened
by tho report of tho riflo and bad to bo
called by tho party discovering the body
of their father. ' AVord was sent to Port
Orford, when a Jury, composed of tho
following gentlemen, proceeded to hold
an inquest: P. Divelbisa, AVm. Rctz,
A. P. Mann, J. AY. AA'ilson, Geo. Divel
biss aud Alva Lee. Tlio jury's verdict
was to tho efl'ect that deceased camo to
bis death from a gunshot wound in the
bead, and that ho had inflicted tho said
wound whilo temporarily insane. The
remains woro buried on tho premises
by neighbors. It had been observed of
lato that lluutloy was laboring under
mental depression, and several days
previous to his suicido, whilo at Nay's
mill, bo remarked that ho thought the
best tiling he could do, considering his
troubles, presumably domestic, would
bo to blow his" brains out.
