Mr Baker at present, resides at the capital Web Smith, superintendent , of . the Kennedy mine,, is .spending several days in San Francisco attending the regular meeting of the board of direc tors of that company.

The skating rink, managed by Joseph Ratto, will hold four sessions per week only in the future, namely, Wednesday and Saturday evenings, and on Sunday afternoon and even ing. Laid to His Rest The grim reaper stopped at the home of Peter Becher No. 26 Center street, on Monday night, and robbed little dark eyed Victor of his Santa Claus. The little fellow, who has just past his third year, appeared to realize that something unusual had happened in their koine, and traces of sadness were distinctly visible on his countenance. The father for the past several years years has been employed at the Argonaut mine, and up until about two weeks ago, when he was taken ill, was working - for that company. He leaves besides his child, a wite to mourn his loss. Death was due to an attack of pneumonia. The funeral of the deceased was held on Wednesday last, services be ing conducted in St. Patrick's church, and interment made in the ('atnolic cemetery of this city. The deceased was a native of Austria. Injured by Fall Wm. Thompson, a teamster em ployed by Dufrene, met with a pain ful accident on Wednesday evening. While he was walking on Broadway, he suddenly Blipped, and while in the act of falling, threw out both arms to save himself. The fall, however, was heavy enough to throw his left arm out of joint at the shoulder. He was assisted down town, and Dr. Endicott was summoned, and reset the disloca tion..,.! Dinner As Bait George Barker, a former resident of Jackson, came up irom Alameda this week, where he is engaged as a con tractor and builder, on his annual Christmas visit to his mother, Mrs U. Barker, who resides on. Peek'B hill.' A special Christmas dinner is annually prepared by the mother as an in ducement to have her children back to her fireside at yuletide. Operation Successful Wednesday afternoon, Dra. Good man and Lynch of Sutter Creek per* formed an operation upon R. Rugne, proprietor of the boarding house here.' A large tumor was removed from the right side. Rugne suffered much pain previous to the operation, as the tumor pressed against the lung. More than three quarts of water, were drawn from the tumor. Since the operation, the patient has rallied encouragingly, and strong hopes are entertained for a complete recovery. FELL DOWN MINE SHAFT Miner Escapes Horrible Death by Landing On V a Platform Misfortune has for some • reason, hovered about the South Eurkea mine for the past two months in which time no less than four miners met untimely and horrible deaths, and numerous serious accidents occurred. The latest accident occurred on Tuesday morning last, about 9 o'clock, when Yule Marich, a native of Austria, plunged j down the shaft of that mine. The unfortunate miner was twenty-four years of age and extremely well liked by his fellow workers because of his genial and affable nature. He had but recently quit the Kennedy mine, where his brother is at present employed, and obtained work at the South Eureka. While in Jackson he boarded at the Milovich boarding house on Broadway. .To this place word was immediately telephoned after the accident occurred; in hopes of being able to get into immediate communication with the victim's brother, whose name is Eliii Marich Elia, was on .the day shift! and "was 7 employed in' a~ lower. \e\A in the Kennedy mine, but as soon ''as word of the accident was given him he immediately went over to Sutter Creek as he was requested to do. Several other native countrymen hastened to the scene of the accident from Jackson. The victim of the accident was working inthe shaft,- replacing tim bers, when he suddenly slipped and disappeared down the shaft. He fell about 120 feet onto a platform used by a gang of men who were engaged at the same work on the level below. The miner apparently slid- down over the sills on his back and right side, as that portion of his body is badly cut and bruised. The right arm is also broken, but no other injuries are reported. Dr. Goodman, who is ; attending the patient says that he does not think there are any serious internal injuries, as were at first reported to exist, and that his patient will have a speedy re covery. When Marich was brought to the sur face, he recognized his friends who had gathered about him, and told them he was dying. Dr. Goodman, after dressing a ■ few of the most serious lacerations, sounded the patient for internal injuries and then assured him that he would pull through finally, if no unforeseen complications arose. Special Services Services will be conducted in the Methudist Episcopal church by the Rev. J. 0. Duncan as follows : In the morning, at 11 o'clock, the sermon subject, ' 'This Mother of Jesus, ' and in the evening at 7 :30 the services will be held at the Odd Fellows banquet hall.

De fendant and Conti were attacking Pis toni. Defendant struck deceased with the rock after he got to them. D. Burdisso was also another eye-witness of the affray. Hesaw defendant strike deceased with the rock, and took the rock from him, and dropped it in the .roadway. He then accompanied Pis tonti to his room at Cavallero's and put him to bed. He did not think at the time that he was so badly hurt. Drs. Endicott and Griffin, conducted the autopsy on the body of deceased the day after the affair, testified that all the vital organs were in a healthy condition, except the brain. A frac ture of the skull was found back of the right ear; the scalp was cut, and on the inside of the skull opposite the fracture found a large blood clot, al most as large as a baseball; the injury was inflicted by some blunt instrument and could have been inflicted by the rock produced. Death was caused by cerebral hemorrhage from a ruptured bloodvessel caused by the blow that fractured the skull. The injury would have resulted fatally even though pro fessional aid had been called promptly. Dan Bona, deputy constable, said that he arrested defendant at his home in Amador City on the 20th of November, at six o'clock in the morn ing. Said to him, "Jack, you fellows had a fight out in the road." and he replied, "I think we did." Saw de fendant and his brother and Conti out side Cavallero's on the , 19th between 11 and 12 o'leock; they did not say they were looking for^him,.. to* have those in the house arrested; Pistoni was not with them : saw him after wards in bed, and Burdesso and J. Zarzotti were in the room, apparently attending to him. This closed the case for the prosecu tion. Ernest Spagnoli, in his opening statement said they expected to prov© an alibi, that the defendant was at some other place at the time the crime is said to have heen com mitted. If they should not be able to establish this to the complete satis faction of the jury, he. hoped they would consider it, and give it such weight as to raise a reasonale doubt in their minds, and give the defendant the benefit of the doubt by a verdict of acquittal. Louie and Turn Ferrari were called. They were present in the Cavallero house at the time the trouble started' and played an Italian game calle mora witn ringers preceding the trouble. George Sampo, brother of defend ant, and also under arrest, was next called. He claimed that he was in the house all the time the alleged homicide is said have taken place, and that de fendant and Conti were there also, but admitted on cross-examination that defendant and Conti went out about fifteen minutes before ten and re mained out for about twenty minutes. His account of the starting of the trouble was that Eva Cavallero had promised to dance next with him ; that when he saw her dancing with Pistoni when as he claimed it was his turn, he asked her how that was. Pistoni said, "What is the use of dancing with you, you can't dance." This riled up Sam po, and a general scrimmage ensued. He said he was in the house of Cavallero from the time the dancing commenced until he went out with de fendant to see for the constable, ex cept the time the crowd were fighting in the back yard ; that he was not on the road between Cavallero's and Gazzero's saloon until he started to look. for George Sampo to go home; that they went home by way of New Chicago. Mrs Sampo, wife of defendant, was examined, and stated that she was present when her husband was ar rested. No conversation occurred be tween the two at the time. Her hus band came home on the night of the 19th about twelve or half past. Stefari Conti, the co-defendant, tes tified that he came to the county in September last., from Oakland, and had been in tho country two years. Had worked in cement at the Bunker Hill mill. (jUcomo Sampo, the defendant, was the last witness for defense, and gave Continued oa I'age 5 Amador Alines Power and Water Company A meeting of the newly formed Am ador Mines Power and Water company was held last Friday at the office of the company in the Webb building.

Horse and Rider Badly Injured A young Austrian named George Oreno engaged a saddle horse at the Union livery stable Wednesday after noon. When the animal was returned that night, it was in a pitable condi tion. The hotse had a laceration in its breast more than five inches, which it is said to have received by collision with another vehicle while the rider was running a race. As a result of the collision, the rider was thrown about twenty feet, sustaining serious injuries which have confined him t» his bed.

Coffman was argued by Judge A. L. Frick for the petitioner on Tuesday. Coffman was charged with assault, with a deadly weapon upon M Lopez, at Amador City.

Coffman is proprietor of the hotel at which Delucchi was boarding.and when Delucchi was beaten up by Lopez, and went into the hotel, Coffman handed him the pistoJ to defend himself against further attack.
