My ago is 34 years, residence Pioche, occupation physician and surgeon, am a graduate of tho Faciflo Me Ileal College. Ou tbe 2d o( November, 1871, be tween tbe hours of five and six o'clock, I was standing in the center of Main Btreet, in Piocbe, in front ot my drug store; while standing, I first heard a shot; turned in the direction of the re port, then saw another shot fired, and think I saw a second shot fired. Tbe first shot 1 saw fired was by Mr. Glea- son; he was standing on Main street, in front ot Lewis' clothing store; in rebv lion to Main Btreet, he fired it at an angle, obliquely, across the street; tbe Bbot was not fired at a right angle with tbe street; at the time the shot was fired did not see any object in the direction in wbiob the shot was fired, but did alter; I saw Mr. King snddr ly rise up and run toward the middle ot the street; I did not see the deceased at tho time I saw the first shot fired. When I heard tbe report of the pistol I immediately looked in tbe direction from which the report came. At this time I was standing 80 or 100 feet from defendunt. I do not think there wore any perBoni within ten feet of him. Here a question was asked, objected to Dy counsel tor aeiense, wnicn oojeotion was by the Court sustained. Upon bear ing the report of the first shot I saw a number of people whom I could not identify. I Baw Mr. Gleasoo and Smith Gray. I don't remember anything about serine the smoke of the first shot. I saw James O. King, tbe deceased, on the evening of the 2d of November, 1874, after tbe Bhooting bad censed, while King was in Lewis's store. lie was sensible at that time. I made an examination of him and stated that there was hope of bis recovery. His pulse wns very rapid and irregular and there was profuse hemorrhage from bis lungs; from the looality of tbe wound, and bis symptoms I knew be had received n mortal wound. The wound was to the left of the spinal column, immediately below the rib; the direction of tbe wound was inward and upward ; it was a gunshot wound. I only probed tbe wound with my finger. The ball did not pass out pf the body. In my judgment from the nature of tbe wound and its locality the back of tbe deceased must have been turned toward the party firing the shot which caused the wound. At tbe time tha shot was fired tbe body of deceaseJ was very much bent forward. I only remained with do ' eeased a few minutes. I saw him again that night in my capacity as coroner, lie was dead. . In my judgment the cause of tha death of the deceased James C, King was hemorrhage, tbe result of a gunshot wound. . It was tbe result of tbe gunshot wound I bave described. At the time) I examined the) deoeased in Lewis' tore. There was very free hemorrhage from the wound at the time, it must thsve been very recently made. In my udgement as a physioian and Surgeon, he wound I bnva desoribed upon tbe ipdy of the deoeased was sufficient in itself to produoe death. In my judge ment tbo death of James C. King was not caused by another means than tha wound wnicn 1 bave described. Tbe up- Iter fjuiwuu ui uv uiwy wuas nuve been at rather an aoute angla with she party that fired the shot, and the head from the party firing. CB08S EXAMINATION. . When I beard ' the first shot I was facing west or np tbe stro'et. I could not dee any portion of tbe street in front of Lewis' store. At the exaot period of time that I first saw defendant after I beard the shot his back was partially toward me. Ho was standing at tbe time, ' I did not see James Byan al that timo or immediately before, nnr imme diately after that I recollect. Defendant remained standing in tha position I des cribed hardly an appreciable length of time. lie shot while ba was standing in that position. He lhn Advanced toward Lewis' store. I am only noaitive that I saw bim fire on sbot. I beard a report immidiatr'iy after I saw tbe first shot, but could not se the pistol on account I parties being in between ids anil tbe arty that fired. I am positive that I heard two reporta and 1 think three. Wbrn I saw deceased suddenly rise and run toward tbo middle ol tbe street 1 first saw the left side of bis body and ace clear. He then turned in tbe direc tion of myself and raised bis right arm with bis pistol In bis baud and men rml, at the same time advancing. Wit ness was then asked to draw a diagram and to point out deceased's position when saw una rise up relative to iewis store. . , . . AniKNOO SKHSTOI. Witness produced a diaurum which was marked exhibit IS, and which be proceeded to explain. After which be said, when I first saw King I should indue lie was between a horizontal and perxrudioular position. Aiy relative position with King was diagonal with the street. His first appearauce to me in risinu op was partially tbe left side of his back and the left side of his face, faciug into the street. Uleason, the defendant, would be not over three feet below tbe lino direct from witness to King. King would bs inure directly facing tbe de fendant than witness. If the ball bad passed in a direct line it would probably Lavs mad, its exit at the upper portion of the breast, bone. I merely made an examination to ascertain the course ot the ball. I did not locate in my own mind the exact point in King's body where tbe ball would have made its exit had it passed entirely through; I did see some evidence in front ot tbe breast bone on tbe left side of King's body to ascer tain where the ball bad lodged or ceased to penetrate. Tbe skin on tbe front or upper portion ot tue cuesi was puneu up with air that bad escaped from tbe lungs nroviuiz tbe communication with tbe luugs and tlia tissues immediately under the skin. To tell between what ribs tbe aperture appeared to bave been made could onlv be determined by dissection My judgment is that tbe ball struck- a Dove the fifth rib. From tbe point of en trance to where I should judge tbe ball would bave made its exit, if it bad passed entirclv tbrouub tbe body, measuring on tbe surface, was about 28 inches. In my uidement it was about 18 incbes, meas uring in a direct line irom wnere toe wound presented itself to view, passing tbe point where the skin was puffed in front of tbe breast bono, r I should judge that from the entrance of the ball to tbe puffing of tbe skin that tbe wound was in a direct line. The following question was then asked witness : Suppose that King.deceased, and Byan were lying upon the gronna in iroot ot the sidewalk which is in front of Lewis' store, with tbeir feet to tbe sidewalk and their bodies, and beads. At right angles with the sidewalk. Byan underneath, King, the deceased, on top, is it possible that Uleason, tbe defendant, standing at tbe point where you Bay he was when vou saw him fire, could have made tbe Wound yort hava described on King's bodv? Objected to by tbo prosecution, but tbe objection was overruled and wit ness replied. Assuming that to be the relation of the parties it was not possible; i tmnk a per Lexinoton Gcabd. Last evening ae-1 cording to tba notice published by order of the District Judge, the members of the military eompany assembled last evening at the Court-house aud organ ized by electing the following officers: Tom Gallagher, Captain; John Dimond, 1st Lrfeut.; Tom liyrnes, 2d Lieut.; J as. Cameron, 2d Lieut.; Wm. O'Brien, 1st Hergt.; Jerry Hamington, 2d nergt.; John O'Day, 3d Hergt.; Frank Barrett, 4tb Borgt.; J. L. Donahue. 1st Corpl.; John Bourke, 2d Corpl.; Wm. MoCor- mick, 3d Corpl.; John Umllen, 41b Corpl. As yesterday was tba hundredth anniversary of tbe battle ol Liexiugton, it was decided to name the company the Lexington Guard in honor of tba occa sion. After passing a vote of tnanka to Lanty Byan for the ability and courtesy with which he acted aa Chairman, the members of tbe company adjourned to next Saturday evening. Tnie Escaped Jail Bibds. From John D. Boyd, lately returned from Fort Defi ance and tha Hoquia Agency, we learn that be met at the Bnckskin mountains, George Lambert, George Smock and Nicanor. On the 1st of November the party passed the Moquis Agency accom panied by a Mexican named Francisco. That two weeks afterward a sqnaw re ported at tbe Fort that this Mexican Francisco bad shot the American through the bead and buried bim, and had given ber two boraes not tell of it. nbe came to tbe Fort and reported tbese facts and that the man killed had a finger off, ami from other descriptions it was known at the Fort that it was George Smock, who escaped from the Piocbe Jail, that was killed. The balance of the party went to aew Mexico. Cklbbbatixo. Last night Mr. J. C. Lynch, with that public spirit which be always evinces, was determined that the hundredth anniversary of tbe memorable liattle of Lexington should not be passed unheeded. So at his own expense be purchased powder and wood and soon had bonfires blazing and tbe anvils firing a salute of one hundred guns in honor of tbe anniversary. Dave Newman and Captain Hosmer officiated aa artillery men, we are glad tbe occasion did not pass off unnoticed, and think Mr. Lynch deserves much credit for bis liberality. Tbi Spring fights may be said to bave fairly set in. Yesterday there were two or three little skirmishes. On Sunday there was a row among tbo Celestials, and late on Saturday night a couple of inebriated men had a quiet little mill on tbe further end of Lacour street. One of the affairs will be made the subject of judicial investigation to-day, when Jus tice Allen may bave a few weighty re marks to make. Unfounded Chabok. On Saturday a young man was arrested and locked up on a charge of petty larceny. Yesterday tbe complaint was withdrawn and the party released, after which be met the person who made the complaint and commenced an attack on him, but was stopped from further belligerent demon strations by Constable McKee. Mint Saloon. The above neat and pleasant saloon, just below Wells Fargo's office on Main street, has just been re opened by Mr. Fay, who will take pains Intyre was arrested. Ford recently ar rived from Arizona, bad $700 or ?80Q. and was on hia way to New York, where ha has a family. Mclntyre admits giv ing him morphine, bnt says Ford re quested him to do so. The circumstances go to show that Mclntyre may bave in tended to atnpefy and rob bim, bnt gave him too much and killed him. Austin, Nkv., April 19. An extensive fire occurred this morning in tho Chinese quarter, a Isrga portion of which was destroyed. Tbe loss is not yet ascer tained. Santa Babbaba, April 1!).

The fear of the total failuro of tbe crops, which up to tbe first of last week ex isted in tbis county, bos given place to a much better feeling. Farmers are now confident they will harvest a fine average crop. Fogs have prevailed for a week and still continue heavy. The early grain crop looks well and the late sown will yield half crops at least. San Fbancisco, April 13. Case ol Jobn J.

His feet from "K" could. have fired a pistol and inrlioted a wound such aa I found upon King's body. As Mr. Gleason ad vanced with bis pistol extended, a num ber of persons stepped into tbe street and obstructed my view of the pistol, hut tbev did not advance far enough to conoeal Mr. Gleason. Mr. Gleason did not fire after tbe deceased presented himself to my view. Deceased fired a pistol after I saw bim rise up. I beard tbe report d Btinctly and saw bim when he fired it. I am positive that I beard tbrect reports and I thiuk four. Tbe first I did not see. I then turned and saw and heard Gleason fire a sbot, the second sbot; immediately after the nee oud shot and while Mr. Uleason's pistol was out of my view I think there was another shot; there was an interval of several seconds before I saw Mr. King fire; when I looked round, after hearing tbe first report, I noticed a light cloud just at the edge ot tbe siaowaiK a siuo ot a haze; from the position I was standing, it was directly in front of me; it was in front of Lewis' store; it was a few feet from Gleason and just above bis head; standing at point " G," tbe distance to tbe sidewalk trotn uiensmi i snouid judge to be about ten feet; I do not call just out from the edge of the sidewalk ten leet out into me street; out me cioua was quite a volume; I cannot state posi tively that the vertical or horizontal di mensions of tbe smoke was the greatest; I understand volume to mean an indefi nite capacity; when I said I noticed a light cloud just at the edge of the side walk, in front ot Liewis store, i aid not mean to convey the idea that tbe olond ot volume issued from thst point; the edge I considered an indefinite term; if there was a volume of smoke from the sidewalk, extending ten feet into tbe street, I should consider it on tbe edge of the sidewalk; if a man was standing ono or two feet from the sidewalk, I should say he was on the edge of the sidewalk; if a horse was tied to a post, and extended eight feel in the street, I would locate him on the edgeof tbe side walk; I do not consider tbe edge to mean directly in contact with the sidewalk; if I speak of the edge of a knife I associate the edge of the blade as being a part of the blade. BK-KXAMINRD. I saw Smith Gray advanco toward the defendant, put his band cn his shoulder and draw him toward tba center of tbe street. I think I beard tbe third report of a pistol just before Smith Gray put bis bauds on Uleason's shoulder. BK-CBOSS-EXAMINATION.

McDonald was Btanding in tbe doorway lacing toward tbe street King was leaning against the wall of the building. McDonald was very near King; I oould hardly describe it. They were talking when i passed, on tbe street. fiassed the time of day and passed ou by hem ; 1 was going down the street. I oontinned to walk as far as the lower end of Wertheimer's store or near Mrs Grnmb's door. I should judge about 25 or 30 feet. At that point I was talking to a man at that time, and some person cried' ngntr and. L turned around; saw two men tussling on tbe sidewalk or fighting lust aa vou term it: one of them was James O.

The decision of the Secretary of tbe Interior in favor of the Bullion Mining Company against tbe 420 Mining Com pany lays down the following principles of importance to mine owners: Suit must be brought by an adverse claimant against tbe applicant for patent. Pen dency of suit commenced by an applicant against an aaveise claimant does not ex cuse compliance with tbe requirement. ae, umn ueciaeo oy tue uistnct and su preme Courts of tbe State on right of possession, it is one wnicn nas not been finally adjudicated in Courts of compe tent jurisdiction; and an appeal to tbe Supreme Court of the Uuited States should not further stay proceedings be fore tbe department. . Where parties ap pear as friends of tbe Court (amicus curing, tbe law should be more liberally construed in favor of tbe applicants for a patent than if there were adverse claim ants in tbe case. Under the statute of lscb, tbe application for a patent was not required to be sworn to, and should not be held invalid for not specifying the exact suriace ground claimed, provided tbe local law did not limit the surface ground at tbe date of location. Where an applicant for a patent relin. quisbee the question of his r remises em. braced in sn adverse claim, further pro ceedings before the Department will not be stayed. Tbe only question before tbe courts in mining application contests is the right of possession to the premises in dispute. In mining cases consent can not give jurisdiction; there must be a substantial compliance with tbe statute. Miners location notices should not be held to technical accuracy, bnt are sufficient if tbey put an honest inquirer in the way of finding the lode. Parole evidence is admissible to define what tract is em braced in a location. It is too late, after a patent is issued, to make objection that publication of notice was not in exact compliance with the statute of July 26, 186G. Proof of publication, which states that notice was published for a period of ninety days, commencing at a certain date, is prima facie sufficient. fCopps W . t J i :, ' ' ceicru uauuuwueE tui april.
