THE XOr7V,ASS CASE.
JLiExlMirum'M major EtplniuN
Why Hi; Fired (He Shot.
Readers of The Tombstone will rec
ollect the killing of Clements Lin
strum by Wilson Douglass in this
camp some weeks since. The homi
cide has generally beon considered
a cold blooded murder, and it has
been wiih a great deal of curiosity
that the public has awaited Douglass'
trial to learn what reason he could
posibly assign for the commission of
the. deed. Yesterday the defendant
was placed on the stand and made
the following statement:
My name is Wilson Douglass; have
been a resident o( Tombstone about
five years; 1 first met Linstrum in
July last; nerer had any difficulty
with' him prior to the killing: had
made an arrangement with him the
day before the killing that I should
accompany him to the mine on the
following day. On the morning ot
the killing was with Linstrum from
six o'clock in the morning until the
shooting, helping him to load the
wagon ; Linstrum and I visited sev
eral saloons and took several drinks
that morning; took a drink in Liu-
strum's house a couple of hours be
fore he started with the wagon : I am
easily influenced by liquor; Linstrum
had engaged me to go to the mine
and work for niin, and I knew noth
ing lo the contrary until about five
minutes before the shooting; When
the wagon started to leave .the house
Linstrum and his wife were both on
it; when Mrs, Linstrum saw that I
was to be left behind she told her hus
band that it was a "mean trick;" I
then told deceased that 1 wanted my
shotgun from the wagon ; I had my
rifle in my hand; deceased said that I
could not have the shot gun unless I
gave him the rifle, and at the same
time grasped the barrel; I sprang
back, ha still holding the barrel, and.
in the melee the lifle was accidental
ly discharged with the result known;
I have a wife and child ; prior to the
shooting Linstrum positively inform
ed me that he would not take me
with him as he agreed ; 1 naturally
felt very hard toward hina.
A JSjxterioux Cum.
Chief of Police Oaks received from
San Francisco 1 ist evening, a letter
from Mrs. C. C. Laing atking for in
formation concerning her huehand
Gustave Laing. From her letter it
appears that her husband left this vi
cinity about two years ago fer the
Sententrion mine in Chihuahua, Mex
ico, where he was under engagement
as mi engineer.
Failing to hear from her husband
for seme time, Mrs. Laing wrote to
he manager of the company and
learned that her husband had been
murdered in the mountains of that
vicinity. It appears however, from
Mas. Laing's letter to the Chief, that
the information furnished her con
cerning her husband's death was so
vague and indefinite as te lead her to
hope that he was yet in the laud of
the living, hence her letter asking for
information. The letter farther states
that the Sententrion mining com
pany had advihed her that a letter
nnd a draft for $120 had been for
warded to Captain Heil Halo of Tuc
son, whihh was to be cashed, and the
amount forwarded to her. Neither
the letter nor the money ever reached.
Mrs. Laing, and she particularly in
quires, "Who can Capt. Heil Hale be"
If anyone knows of the whereabouts
of Laing, or auy of the particulars of
his death, he will confer a favor by
communicating tho same to Mrc,
Carmen C. do Laing, No. 812 Taylor
street, San Francisco, or to George
Oaks, Chiuf of Police, Tombstone.

Fkiekd Bagg : I am happy to say
we arrived here last Monday, all well,
twenty-six days from Tombstone and
twanty-four aud one-half days travel.
Grist turned off at Colton for San
Diego.
After resting my horses for a few
days I stated out to work on Friday
Of course I did not expect to do
much being a stianger, but the two
days I have worked I have made ex
penses. I went to Passadcna and saw
Mr. and Mrs. Finney, Lon Giveus and
Mr. Winnans, aud many others, all
doing well. Both towns are rushing,
and are bewildering lo a person com
ing from Tombstone here, after an
absence of eight years; I am lost, the
few people I knew here then, are
wealthy now.
JNuw in regaru to our trip. A.itcr j
leaving Yuma, we crossed the river on
cars, and should have remained on
them until we reached Ogilsby, as this
was the worst part of the road, badly
washed by the late rains for about 15
miles; then a few miles of good travel
then about 40 miles of sand, across a
portion of which we made only 12
miles per day; then a good road and
a deep wash every few hundred feet
where the horses stood on end one
side, and the wagon ditto on the oth
er. On emerging from the desert we
encountered salt and boggy land and
my team got mired ; then after leav
ing Indio, heavy sand until near Ban
usng's and then God's own country;
trees, -grass, flowers, houses and the
tinest kind of a picnic. It was pretty
rough, but we never wanted for feed
orwateras the former -we carried
with us, and the latter was very plen
tiful all along the railroad.
I find lots of old Tombstoners here,
all in good spirits, aud if they are not
doing well, they expect to.
I met Mrs. Borland to-day. She is
located liere. Ed. Dean is in the Pi
co House; Johnny Shields is working
for Miles. E. G. Ashniun has got a
job and has gone somewhere to tend
liar. Carpenters are all buiy here.
Good carpenters get $3 50 per day,
and poor ones what they are worth ;
there is no end of building going on
I have heard that the Anti-Chinese
ticket was elected. If that is so,
what a "et back it must be for some
of tho "B. C'?" I hope that Crow
ley got there. Ask Jim Nash to send
me The Tombstone. I intended lo
have subscribed before I left, but for
got it. Kind regards to all enquir
ing friends. 1 hope to give a good a s
cotint of myself next time as I have
something in view.

There are some new railroads building
in the "West, and ethers contemplated;
but the main canse of the present ac
