Tuesday word was received by Sheriff Potts that thp body of Chris Callan, an old watchmaker, who resided in Needles, California, had been found near Sweeny's ranch, on the Arizona side ot the Col orado river. Deputy Sheriff Smith, Coroner Redman and District Attorney Blakely went to Needles on the night train and held an inque3t on the body the next day. It was found that the man had been shot from behind, the bul let striking him in the back of the head and passing out in front. Another bul let had penetrated the head near the nose and passed out at the back of the head, and still another bullet had passed through the shoulder and came out near the spine. The evidence before the cor oner's jury was given by the Sweeny family, who lived hard by where the body was found. Callan had gone to Sweeny's house between two and three o'clock Monday and talked with Emma Sweeny, a girl about eighteen years of age. John Sweeny, the father, came our and ordered the girl into the house and told the man to take himself off Sweeny says the man begged him "for God's sake to kill him." but as he was in a humane mood he refused and went into the house. Shortly afterward seven or eight shots were heard and the next day he heard that Callan was dead. The young man, Charle3 Sweeny, testified that last Saturday night Callan had pulled a gun and took a shot at him near the iceplant in Needles. He was out hunting hogs on the day Callan met his death and knew nothing about it. Near the body was a 44-caliber rev 1 ver and a Marlin rifle. The rifle was useless, but the pistol had three cham bers empty. Whoever did the killing tried to conyey the impression that It was a case of suicide. Seven or eight shots were fired, according to Sweeny's testimony. Callan could not shoot him self in the back of the head, nor could he have inflicted the wound in the shoulder. It is a clear case of murder. Who could have desired the death of Callan? Com mon rumor has it that Sweeny's daugh ter had been living with him at Needles; that she had been prevailed upon by her parents to return to her home and that Callan had been making daily pilgrim ages to the Sweeny ranch to importune the girl to again return to him. He had been warned to keep away, but lured on by his infatuation his life was the forfeit. He was mentally unsound, although a genius in his way. He could repair a watch or electroplate a nugget of copper so that he could sell it to the tenderfoot as a nugget of virgin gold. He had put in several years doing time in San Quintin, haying been sent up from San Bernardino for receiving Btolen good3. His loss will not leave a vacuum in Needles, but his murderer should be brought to justice. t alrics gall.
