Tuesday afternoon John Patterson
came to this oily In post haste after a
doctor; stating that Elijah Willfong
had attempted to hang himself, at the
barn of hie son-in-law, Alex McDon
ald. The facts, as near as we could
get them, were as follows:
Mr. Willfong is about 82 years old,
Is quite deaf and has nearly lost his
hind. He has been afflicted lately
with erysipelas about the face and
eyes, and has been frequently beaid to
say that be did not want to live. In
misequeuce of these threats he has
been watohed to some extent. Shortly
after he ate bis dinner Tuesday hs
went to the barn and taking a ropa
fastened one end to the joist overhead.
He then, by standing on a scantling,
one end of which was placed upon a
box or something of tbat nature,
brought his head near the Joist. He
then tied the rope around hie neck,
but not In a slip knot, aud stepped off
the scantling. This gave him a drop
of but four or five iuches, bnt be would
have strangled to death In a few min
utes. Some children happening on
Ihe scene about this time, hurried to
the house aud reported the matter to
their father. Mr. McDonald went to
the barn as quickly as possible and,
putting the rope, laid (he old man
down. He bad choked himself till he
had quit breathing, but In a few min
utes respiration was restored. When I
Dr. Cole, of this city, arrived not
much could be done, as he was by this
time breathing regularly with the
heart beating at about norotal rate.
The doctor prepared a lotion for the
eyes and face, which, upon being ap
plied, soon soothed the old man to

Mr. Lindsey had been for years of a

Highest of all in Uavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
Reported Gold Find Is it True?
McMinnville, Or., March 20. The
discovery of a mineral lode is reported
here; and If reportx be true it is the
richest deposit that has been found on
the coast for many years. It wns made
by an old Cornish miner, Henry Sem
mens, who has recently been over the
gold fields of South Africa, aod is pres
ident and manager of the Cook-Kitchen
mine in Clatsop county, Wash. The
lode is said to contain gold, silver,
nickel and copper in great quantities,
and lies in the foothills of thib place,
extending up to and beyond the
summit of the Coast mountains. Crop-
pings of the lode have been found on
about 20,000 acres, and is a conglom
erate of twisted, gnarled and fragmen
tary, dark brown and gray rock, both
volcanic and sedimutary. It la said
(0 he similar to that found In the
Transvaal gold fields, and is contrary
to all known mineral deposits found
on the Pacific cuat, In its geological
formation. Gold h:is been known to
exist in small quantities in the foot
hills here for years, but not in paying
quantities, and the mother lode could
not be located by prospectors, as they
always looked for the common gold
bearing quartz usually found In other
mines of the coast.
There are those here who profess to
believe the whole scheme a hoax, got
ten up to deceive and make money;
but the men who live here, and are
engaged in the enterprise are above
reproach. It would take a vast amount
of testimony to convince people here
that tbey would lend themselves to
perpetrate a stupendous fraud on the
public. So there is 110 little excitement,
among those who have been let luto
the secret, and the continued favorable
news received from the locators, who
b,aye been, digging, blasting and pros
pecting, makes the news to good to be
kept, and it is now being told private
ly from friend to friend.
Later Since the above dispatch was
first published, several newspapers
have stated tbat it was a canard. The
latter statement ia probably correct. v ,
