The body of Wm. Barbour, the Leb
anon merchant, was found In the Wil
lamette river near Penuoyer's mill on
In response to a telegram, Mr. Dal-
gleish went to Portland Monday, and
Mrs. Barbour on the following day.
Both Identified the remains as those of
Wm. Barbour. Mr. Dalglelsh, the
murdered man's partner, who has been
intimately acquainted with Mr. Bar
bour for a number of years, testified
that he was not an excessive drinker.
Dr. Andrew Smith made an exami
nation of the remains finding a 82-ea li
ber pistol bullet in the brain. The
bullet entered the head at a point three
inches back of the right ear, passing
entirely through the brain and strik
ing against the upper part of the left
side of the forehead. Nothing was
elicited during the inquest to give the
slightest clue to the perpetrators of the
terrible crime. The remains were de
posited temporarily in a vault in Port
land until further Instructions from
the relatives of the deceased.
Following is theOregonlan's account
of the finding of the body:

That Barbour wan foully dealt with there s lit
tle doubt. The injuries on the heud are evidence
of this. The fact thai all his money, watch and
chain and dianmnd ring are mlwing would lead
to the inference that he was murderd for bi
money. But how, when or by whom he was
murdered no one knows. The frcneral supposi
tion is that he was mnxdered somewhere in the
city, and that the body was then carted off and
dumped into the river at Pennoyer's milt. Bar
bour would not have strolled out that far himself
and the trody could not have floated up stream.
The police are satisfied that it is a case of murder,
and ilie fullest Investigation will be made.

We understand that the game had

the second nine could not interest them
so they broke the agreement and

result was that the "Southern Confed
