poem literary health-death health-provider lifestyle-sentiment(obit) people-attitude
CoqB 05a June 7, 1901
[Head; centered]   In Remembrance of Dr. S. L. Leneve.

'Tis hard to break the tender cord
  When love has bound the heart,
'Tis hard, so hard to speak the word
  Must we forever part?

Dearest loved one, we have laid thee
  In the peaceful graves embrace [sic];
But thy memory will be cherished,
  Till we see thy heavenly face.

He has gone from his dear ones his wife [sic],
  His children,
Whom he willing toiled for,
  And loved as his life.
Oh, God, how mysterious
  And how strange are thy ways,
To take from us this loved one,
  In the best of his days.

A loved one's voice is hushed in death,
  A faithful heart is still;
A place is vacant by the hearth
  None other e'er can fill.
His precious words of hope and cheer,
  His tender loving care,
What sacred memories cluster here,
  Around his vacant chair.

Our dear friend, loved so well,
  Has passed from us away,
To dwell 'mid scenes of heavenly bliss,
  Among angel chair for ayes [sic],
Forever hushed his earthly voice,
  To us so sweet and clear;
And, oh our home is loner now
  To see his vacant chair.
                   --Maud Flanders  +

     Doctor Dayolheasala, and [sic] Indian specialist, jolly good fellow, and all-around
corpulent chunk of gentility, but with the proverbial lack of a "Happy  Hooligan."
He is firmly convinced that he has wandered once more into the unjust land of the heathen.
The doctor’s short visit in the town of roses has been marred by the thorny path of
justice, and the monotonous experience of trotting back and forth from one court to
another, might justify the eminent M. D. in producing a second version of “Bunyan's
Pilgrim Progress." His case involved many features and phases of individual rights,
chiefly that of an American citizen to enjoy himself on the ground that we should "eat,

         The Bloody Baptism of Battle Rock.
     Correspondent Portland Telegram.
     Port Orford, Or, May 5 -- June 9 will mark a memorable event in the history of pioneer life on the Pacific Coast.  Fifty years ago, on the morning of June 9, 1853, there landed on the beach just below the hills where Port Orford now stands nine men, whose thrilling experience constitutes one of the most interesting chapters of Oregon's pioneer history.
     Battle Rock, visible from every part of the town and far out at sea, by reason of its location near the center of the  beautiful crescent harbor, is separated from the shore by about 30 yards of smooth beach, under water at high tide.  It rises like a huge whale head toward the sea, sides perpendicular, to a height of 75 feet.  The rock tapers into a narrow path over its brek [sic; = back].  On top and commanding its approach, there is a flat surface of 150 yards in length by 75 yards wide, wide [sic], now mostly covered with a scraggy [sic] growth of myrtle and dwarf pine.
     Captain William Tichenor, evidently attracted by the beauty of the harbor, the vast forests back of it, and its favorable geographical location to the Southern Oregon mines, concluded to start a settlement, lay out a town, and build a road to the mines. The scheme also lured nine young men, whose names were, respectively, J. M. Kirkpatrick, J. H. Eagan, J. T. Slater, George Ridoubs [sic] [ M 2006  as also in Dodge's History; but in another place Dodge has Ridoubt], T. D. Palmer, Joseph  Hessey [sic; Dodge has Hussey], Cyrus W. Hedden,  James Corrigan and Erastus Summers.  They sailed from Portland on the old steam propeller Sea Gull, Captain Tichenor, June 4, 1853, landing at Port Orford June 9.  Their entire armament consisted of one United States six-shooting rifle, three old flintlock muskets, one old sword, one 38 caliber revolver, one pair derringers, about 50 pounds of powder and 10 pounds of bar lead, and one old brass cannon taken from the Sea Gull. Few Indians were in sight when they landed but Captain Kirkpatrick though the youngest of the party, took a proper estimate of the situation, based upon his knowledge of Indian cunning, for he had had the benefit of association and training with that most famous Indian fighter, Kit Carson.  Captain Tichenor continued his voyage to San Francisco, promising to return in 14 days with more men and provisions.
     On the following morning, June 10, a party of Rogue river Indians, accompanied by a big chief in a red shirt, came up the coast in a canoe, and, landing on the beach, began preparations for an attack.  The chief, beginning with a preliminary flourish of his big knife, indicating to the men on the rocks that he xas [sic; = was] after their scalps.  What follows is best told in the Captain's words, as follows:
     "The brass connon [sic; = cannon], commanding the approach, was loaded with two pounds of powder and two handfuls of lead slugs.  The fellow in the red shirt drew a long knife, waved it over his head, gave a terrible yell, and with at least 100 of his braves, started for us with a rush.  I stood by the gun, holding a piece of tarred rope with one end in the fire ready, as soon as the Indians crowded on the narrow ridge in front of the cannon, to let them have the contents when it would do the most execution.  The air was full of arrows, coming from 100 bows.  James Corrigan had picked up a pine board about 15 inches wide, eight feet long and 1.3 inches thick. He stood right behind me and held the board in front of us both. Thirty-seven arrows hit the board, and at least half of them showed their points through it.  Two of the of my men [sic] were disabled.  Palmer was shot through the neck and was bleeding badly; Ridoubt was shot in the breast, the arrow sticking in the breast bone, making a painful wound, and Slater ran and laid down in a hole behind the tent.  This left six of us to fight it out with the Indians who still kept coming.  When they crowded on the narrow ridge, the red-shirted fellow in the lead not more
than eight feet from the muzzle of the gun, I applied the fiery end of the rope to the priming. 
The execution was fearful.  At least 12 or 13 men were killed outright, and such a tumbling of scared Indians I never saw before or since.
     "The gun was upset by the recoil, and we never stopped to right it, but rushed out and at them, and soon cleared the rock of live warriors.  Then we counted 17 dead Indians on the rock.  And this was the bloody baptism that gave the name "Battle rock" to our old camp at Port Orford, on the 10th day of June, 1851.
     "Incredible as it may seem, there were two warriors that passed the crowd and were not hit by any of the slugs fired from the cannon.  One, a big, strong looking Indian, made up his mind that he wanted my scalp; he rushed at me with a big knife.  Corrigan shot him in the shoulder, and still he came on.  He made a slash at me with his knife, which I knocked out of his hand with my left.  When he grappled for his knife agian [sic] I pulled one of the derringers and shot him in the head, the ball entering one temple and coming out at the other.  He then turned and ran 20 feet, falling dead among the Indians killed by the cannon.
     "The other brave went for Eagan whose musket missed fire, as the Indian was in the act of fixing an arrow in his bow.  Eagen hit him over the head with the barrel, bending it.  Stunned from the blow, Eagen jumped at him, took away his bow, and then jumped back, turned his musket and dealt him three or four blows with the butt, knocking him entirely off the rock into the sea.
     "The next day a parley ensued, resulting in a truce.  The Indians were permitted to carry off their dead, about 23, except one, the fellow in the red shirt. An Indian gave the body a kick and with a grunt left it.  This excited the curiosity of the party when, on closer inspection they found that he had been a white man -- a former Hudson's Bay Company man.  Ship-wrecked and rescued by the Indians he had become one of them.  They themselves buried the body on the beach later on.  The Indians disposed of their dead by burning them.
     "The party repulsed two other attacks later on, each led by a big chief, picked out by the defenders' unerring rifle in turn, the death of each chief resulting in utter demoralization of the Indians.
     But each day brought more Indians to the scene; they guarded the white men closely; but the white man's strategy was superior to the Indians' cunning.  All of the party escaped.  Traveling by night through a wilderness of forests and swamps, with a few sea  biscuits for food.  They followed the coast line, crossed the Coquille river, and reached in an exhausted and famishing condition on the Umpqua, where Empire now stands.  There they found a few white men on the other side, who, launching their boats, took the nine ragged defenders aboard, set sail, and just as the sun was setting, July 2, 1851, they reached their haven of safety.
     After resting a few days, Dr. Joseph Drew and his associates took the party up the Umpqua, to a place, now Scottsburg, where they landed July 4.  There they separated but Cyrus W. Hedden, one of the nine heroes, settled down at Scottsburg, where after half a century, he still lives, and where, while looking in his garden, the white haired pioneer related his experience to the writer.
     Battle Rock stands today as it did 50 years ago; but no memorial no tablet marks the scene of the bloody tragedy, where a handful of white men fought a battle for civilization, blazing a path to the sea for future generations to follow.  Would it not be appropriate on this, the 50th anniversary, to erect a memorial tablet inscribing the names of the heroes and the date of the battle of June 10, 1851, to serve as an historic landmark for future generations? -- H. C.
     NOTE--  The statement above that Empire City is at the mouth of the Umpqua is an error.  Empire City being on Coos Bay.  +

      The spur which was recently put in at Lyons' mill is being taken up, the
grade being so steep as to make it impossible for the locomotive to pull out
the loaded cars.  An attempt was made Monday to haul a car out, but after
getting halfway up the incline, refused to go any farther, running back with
such force as to throw the car off the trucks [sic], and tearing up things generally. 
We understand that the grade will be made more level before cars can be
hauled out.  +

CoqB 10-12 June 7, 1901 
                                       IS STILL AT LARGE.
                                       Landis Reaches the Sius-
                                              law Country.
                                Reward Raised to $1000 – Small
                                  Hopes of His Capture – Sheriff
                                          Gallier Explains.
     Since our last issue reports of all descriptions have been in circulation regarding the whereabouts of Landis, but all trace of the murderer seems to have been lost until
Tuesday, when Sheriff Gallier received a telegram from the Sheriff of Lane county
stating that Landis had been seen and identified, in the Siuslaw country,  by
someone who knew him well.  As Landis formerly lived in that neighborhood,
it is very probable he will remain there for some time, and as the country is
not very thickly settled the chances of capturing him are very few, at least
until he thinks it will be safe to come out and make for other parts.
     Word was received in town, Saturday, that a man answering the description
of  Landis had been seen in Dairyville that morning.  Dave Johnson and Dave
Carey immediately left for there, but no trace of the suspect could be found.
They returned Wednesday.
     News received in town, Saturday, that a man supposed to be Landis had
been arrested at Elkton,  but the report has since proved false.   Upon receipt
of that news Deputy Sheriff Ed Gallier left for that place, whereabouts are not
known at present but it is supposed he has gone on to the Siuslaw.
     Much blame has been attached to Sheriff Gallier for ever allowing Landis to
leave Coquille City, but in a conversation with Mr. Gallier, yesterday, he
makes the following statement:
    “That at the time the body was discovered and suspicion pointed to Landis
as the murderer he went to Attorney Sinclair (who acted as deputy District
Attorney in that case), for advice in the matter, and asked if a warrant for the
arrest of Landis, on suspicion, could not be issued, and was informed that he
had better wait until after the inquest.  A few hours later he again asked
Sinclair about securing a warrant.  Sinclair then stated that Landis could not
be held on the statement of the McQuigg boys who stated that they had seen
Landis burying the body, but to wait and see if more evidence could not be
secured.  In the meantime Mr. Gallier had parties shadowing Landis, and
supposed that as Sinclair was an attorney and knew the law in the matter, he
was doing his full duty.  If Sinclair knew that Landis could be held why did he
not inform Gallier to that effect and not otherwise?”
     Four hundred dollars was raised by subscription this week for the capture of
Landis.  With the $500 offered by the county and $100 by Sheriff Gallier, this
makes a total of $1000 reward.
     Too much credit cannot be given the McQuigg boys, who found the body of
Eudaily, for their promptness in reporting their discovery to the authorities,
and but for them Landis would no doubt be enjoying the respect and society of
respectable people with no suspicion resting on him and no thought of his
being guilty of so fiendish a crime.  Various remarks have been made lately as
to the unreliability of these boys, but as everything points to the truthfulness
of their statements, and until Landis is captured and proves himself not guilty,
their story stands as facts.   +
