THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 23 SUICIDE. Another Unfortunate Gone Yesterday evening Samuel Mat thews, ouo of I lie west side laundry -men deliberately put a pistol to his temple and fired the conteuts of one of the chambers through his brain. Hi wife stated that ho had been to the new town all day and had been drink ing. Whcu he returned between 4 and 5 o'clock yesterday evening he entered the house and Inquired for his dinner. His wife asked where he tia.l been all day, he answered, that itwasuoncof her business. When ho had finished his meal he got up from the table and went to his little girl, who was standing in the door and kissed her. Ho then went be hind some curtaius which were hung up before the bed, and shot himself. He assigned no act, but at other times under the influence of liquor he had threatened his own life. Some of his neighbors who saw him returning from the new town, state that ho did not seem to be in a bad humor, but rather on the contrary, as he stopped and played with the children whom he met. He was aman of about 37 years of age. Had formerly lived in Alameda, on Redeliver and moved to this city the first of last January and was occupying the building just east of the court house. The pistol, which Matthews used, belonged, it is said to a man by the name of Irwin. Mat thews had been carrying it for about a week, it was a 38 calibre, Smith & "Wesson. Half of the chambers were empty. He leaves a wife and n little girl three years old to mourn his un timely death. They had adopted little boy of Mrs,' Toddhuutcr's, who now for a second timo within 10 months is left fatherless. A Mexican washerwoman was the only person besides Mrs. Matthews, in the house at the time of the suicide. The sell slain victim was a horrible sight as he lay on the lloor bathed in blood. The family are now ins own trulv ob jeets of pity and the sorrowing wife as she sat bathed in tears and bowed in grief, beside her dead husband was enough to move the heart of the most narueneu person, llic coroners jury returned a verdict of suicide. Refutation. Kditoh Gazette. Having seen an article in yesterdays Optic, which in some manner reflects upon my personal character; said ar t icio stating that my charge against certain man who calls himself a lieu icuant of the ban Miguel Killcs, was uniustifiablc. I have the honor to transmit herewith the following state mentlor the lnlormauon ot all niv friends and fellow citizens in general I In the first place, this so-called lieu tenant begged pardon of the under signed iu the presence of Don Deme trio Pcicz, and subsequently bcggci his pardon in open court, crying at the time for having made such a ter riblc mistaks as of having insulted one of our most respectable citizens, who at the time of the occurrance was as s;stmg linn in 1113 own duties, ani has publiclv acknowledged that the whole matter was a mistake, lie not being familiar with the Spanish lan "liase, and under the excitement of the moment he committed the rash act. for which ho is very sorry- All this was confessed by this said Lieu tenant Beckham, of the San Migue Rifles, under tears. How the Optic can make such an assertion as that the charge made by Mr. Juan Jose Lo pez, against this Lieutenant Beckham was unjustifiable we do not under stand, the accuseil party having con fesscd his guilt and given full satis faction to the offended party. Juan Jose Lopez Card of Thanks. To our unknown friends at Las Ve gas for their kind attention and friend ship to our dear son Albert D. Max well in his hour of sickness and death wc return our sincere and heartfelt thanks. H. W. MaxWKI.L. MiniAM A. Maxwell.

We suggest' to Matton Mar ble to read "What is conscience'' t lie next time he wants a volumn ot fic tion to entertain himself. Gen.

Potter, of this city, yesterday received by express, from Massillon, Ohio, a cage containing twenty-five r thirty canary birds.

The hear ing of evidence was concliidcd at about 8 o'clock, when court adjourn ed until y The peculiar kind of religion which was preached and practiced by the so called Army of Salvation while here, is so much beticr honored in thebreach than the observance, that nobody will repent that Gen. Haskell and his army have returned from St. Louis. The sort of religious revival they under took to conduct iu this city will do a great deal more harm than good any where, but it would have been worse h an a mistake te have made war on the Army of Salvation as the less publicity they got the less harm they tere capable of doing. St. Louis Re publican. Thcr,e is a scheme on foot to straighten the road leading from the plaza across the bridge to Rogers Bros., blacksmith shop beyond the acequia, and to plaut a row of trees on each side. It is said that the whole thing can be accomplished for $200. If this is the case it should be done at once, or at least as soon as it. will do to plant trees. This street will al ways be a good one, cither for busi ness or dwelling purposes and the beautifying of it will enchance its value a hundred per cent. There arc many other streets both in East and West Las Vegas that could be made beautiful by the planting of trees. The trees along the streets and in the plaza of" Santa Fe are her pride and add greatly to the price of property there. -The Placer mines on the Rio Grande river at the south end of the canon, at Rinconada, including the live claims named Santa Rosa, Red Cloud, Abbie, Victoria and Santa Rita, generally known as the "Bart- lcson claims," and embracing what is considered the clearest and best piece of placer property on that river, have just been purchased by a syndicate of eastern gentlemen, wilhji view to the formation of a company for prompt development.
