of Grants Pass by James Manuel
while hunting Sunday returned n
vordlct to the effect thnt Mr. Myers
carao to his death accidentally from
a shot fired by Manuel, who had mis
taken him for a deer. Tho member

Myers and Mr. Manuel left Grants
Pans enrly Sunday for tho Anchor
vicinity for tho purpose of Inspecting
ii herd of cattlo belonging to the

hunt. Tho trip to Anchor was made
by automobile, and the. two men had
Intended staying there until Monday.
Tho story of the scooting was told

whon ho and Mr. Myers arrived nt
their camp, on Snow Creelc, about
three miles from tho mnln Cow
Creole, thoy started out In quest of
deer. Myers walked up ono gulch,
while Mr. Mnnuel went In another
direction. About 1G minutes after
they had sepnratcd, Manuel Jumped
n deer and turned back to follow It.
Seeing a movement In tho bushes
and thinking It was mndo by tho
deer ho was following,' Manuel took
aim with his rlflo and fired. On go
ing to see tho result of his shot he
found his companion expiring, a bul
let wound of tho head evincing the
agency of death. Krom all appear
ances, It was apparent from tho
place whero tho body was found that
Myers had turned back after leaving
Manuel and wns coming In a general
direction toward him.
Tho coroner's report showed that
the shooting occurred shortly after
ri:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, nud
Hint tho men were nenrly half n mlln

Tho bullet entered tho back of Myor's
head, Indicating thnt ho was standing
with his back to Mnnuel nt tho tlmo
or iho shooting. Myers wns laying
faro downward when discovered.
Death was instantaneous.

caso to Sheriff Qulne and n thorough
Investigation Is being made.
Manuel admitted thnt he fired tho
fatal shot, and Informed tho coroner
thnt lie was roady to accompany tho
officers to Hosoburg. Manuel is un
nerved as a result of tho shooting,
and Is under tho caro of a Grants
Pass physician. Ho has sent word
