Daily Appeal – 10/3/1884, p 3 – Suicide – Some four weeks ago Hugh Maguire, a bridge carpenter, attempted suicide, and although he cut his wind pipe in several places, he failed in his attempt to take his life.  He went to work and it was hoped by his friends that he would avoid drink, and thereby escape any further suicidal manias, but he soon took to his old ways, and was arrested and put to work on the chain-gang.  Night before last he was brought from chain-gang work and locked up with the other prisoners.  Yesterday morning, he ate his breakfast after having had a good night’s sleep.  A little after 7 o’clock some of the prisoners knocked on the door and said that Maguire was in a fit.  Mr. Gore, who was on duty, went in and found Maguire on a mattress, covered up with a blanket.  He was on his back and streams of blood were coming out of his mouth and neck, and he was covered with blood.  Dr. Rogers was called at once, but he was then almost dead.  He had severed the jugular veins, and perhaps the carotid arteries of the right side.  It was done with a piece of steel which he had obtained somewhere.  It was a poor implement, but he had used it with fatal effect.  There will be a Coroner’s inquest, but there can be but one verdict, that of suicide.  The deceased, when sober, was a good mechanic and a very decent man, but when under the influence of drink he was beyond self, or other, control.

AN UNFORTUNATE ENDING - Clyde Manwell Succumbs to Injuries Received in the Football Game - Very few of the large crowd that witnessed the football game on Saturday were aware until they returned to town that Clyde Manwell who played quarter back for the Wheatland team had been fatally injured. He had been taken off the ground in an insensible condition during the second half of the game; and was accompanied to the U.S. Hotel by Dr. C. F. Grant, who at once saw that his condition was very serious. A consultation was later held between Drs. Grant, Powell, E. E. Stone, Stratton, Barr and Hanlon, who from the start held out very little hopes of his recovery. He held his own for the first twenty-four hours, but Sunday evening commenced to sink rapidly and died at 2 o’clock yesterday morning. - Dr. Grant informed an APPEAL reporter that Manwell had sustained a fracture of the fourth cervical vertibra [sic], causing paralysis from the seat of the the [sic] injury down. There was also an injury to the right lung causing pneumonia. The primary cause of death was fracture of the spine, and the secondary traumatic pneumonia. - Young Manwell was perfectly conscious Saturday evening and gave the following version of how the accident happened: -
“I was playing quarter back and tackled one of the Marysville team, catching him above the knee. I then fell forward, my head resting on the leg of the other player, and my body on the ground. The scrimmage then took place, and as the other players piled upon us I felt my neck crack. When the crowd piled off again I hollowed, oh my neck, and rolled over on my back unconscious.”
At no time did he blame any of the other players or complain of having been kicked, although it was reported on the streets that the injury had been caused by a kick. - Clyde Manwell was the son of Justice of the Peace G. W. Manwell of Wheatland, and was the younger brother of Prof. E. T. Manwell, principal of the Wheatland school. A year ago he was one of the applicants for teachers’ certificates, and received one for the primary grade. - [no intro] Edward T. Manwell, a brother, who is principal of the Wheatland school, and a member of the County Board of Education; George Manwell, a brother, who resides at Healdsburg; and Mrs. Effie E. Horton, a sister, who is a resident of Los Angeles. - The funeral services will be held at the Christian church in Wheatland tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon at 2 o’clock. Interment Wheatland cemetery. - His death has cast a gloom over the entire community, and nowhere more than in Wheatland, where he was loved and respected.

Marysville Appeal - Fri 1/3/1913, p1 - Horrible Death for Joe Rose - Body Battered to Fragments When Clothing Catches in Fly Wheel - Joseph DeRose Marciel of Rackerby, a miner by occupation, was the victim of an untimely end Wednesday, when his trousers became entangled in the shafting of a huge fly-wheel of his five stamp mill, beating the life out of the unfortunate man before assistance could arrive. - The body was not discovered until about 8 o'clock in the morning and it is unknown how long the man had been dead when found.  He was found by his brother.  The fly wheel in which the man's clothing was caught was a huge affair, and was traveling at 150 revolutions a minute.  Near the wheel is a large post about 10x10 inches, and the man's body had beat against this post until the surface was worn perfectly smooth.  Where the body had struck the ground was also worn away to the depth of several inches, and the unfortunate man must have been entangled in the wheel for several hours before he was found.  The shaft to the fly wheel is only about a foot from the ground, and the fly wheel sets down into the ground. - From the general appearance of the surroundings it is presumed that Rose, as he is known to his friends, was oiling the shafting when his trousers became fastened, and in his efforts to free himself he only got closer to the fly wheel, where sure death awaited him. - Leaves Large Family - Deceased was the father of a large family of children - 11 in all, five girls and six boys.  He was a poor man, and had been engaged in mining for a long time, although he never realized much from his efforts until the past week when he took out $2500 from his claim.  He was so worked up and excited over his good fortune that he would go to his mill and begin work as early at 3 o'clock in the morning and work until late at night.  He was taken away just when everything looked brightest for him, and just as the new year was dawning. - Political Leader - Deceased was 53 years old and had long resided in the vicinity of Rackerby.  He was popular and was a leader in politics among his countrymen.  He was a hard working man and made friends readily.  He had a genial and pleasant disposition and had few if any enemies. - Accidental Death - Coroner Kelly went to the scene of the tragedy Wednesday and held an inquest over the remains, the verdict being accidental death.  The funeral was held at Rackerby yesterday afternoon, Rev. Father Coen of this city officiating.

Mehl Faces Final Judgment - A Narrow Escape for His Brother Charles Whom He Sought to Kill - Temporary Insanity the Probable Cause - Brooding Over Fanciful Wrongs Unhinges a Brother's Mind and Leads to a Sensational Outcome - Two shots fired in rapid succession at 5:20 last evening attracted a crowd to the Vandever House at the northwest corner of B and Third streets, which was rented a few days ago by Charles Mehl for saloon purposes.  The shots were fired in the upper portion of the building, and when Officer Meek arrived several minutes later he found William Mehl dead in a room upstairs fronting on Third street, a pistol laying almost under the right wrist, and blood oozing from his right ear.  An examination of the gun showed that three chambers had been recently discharged. - Charles Mehl, brother of the deceased, who was down stairs, informed the officer that Billy had attempted to murder him and, believing that he had succeeded, had killed himself.  Some paper hangers that were at work in the house corroborating Charles Mehl's statement, no detention was deemed necessary. - Coroner Bevan was notified and he took charge of the remains. - Charles Mehl was soon after seen by an Appeal reporter and made the following statement:  My brother William and myself carried on business at the Wisconsin House under the name of Mehl Bros. until a few days ago when we dissolved partnership.  I then rented the Vandever House and put some men to work papering the walls. - My brother came into the house yesterday and seemed to act very pleasantly and I purchased some wine from him, which he delivered and he treated some people in the saloon and then left.  He came into my place again at 5:20 and after he had called for a glass of beer he asked me how many rooms were furnished up stairs and I told him one and asked him to come up stairs and have a look at it.  I entered the second room and he followed and after making the remark "that this will be a nice room," he pulled out his pistol and fired two shots close to my head and in rapid succession.  I staggered and almost fell, the wall saving me, when I heard a third shot and Billy fell to the floor.  I went out to the hall where the men were at work, and asked one of them to go for Marshal Maben, and Officer Meek arrived soon after.  When he entered the room where the shooting took place we went in from the porch.  My brother talked very pleasantly up to the time he commenced to shoot. - County Physician Elmer E. Stone, who arrived at the Vandever House soon after the tragedy, made an examination of Charles Mehl and found that he was powder burned on the right side of his face, also found a slight abrasion of the skin along the side of his neck and right cheek. Was informed that when Billy commenced shooting that Charley was standing a little to his left.  The Doctor found a bullet on the floor of the next room which had passed through the partition.  He made an examination of the fatal wound that William Mehl had inflicted on himself, last evening, and found that it had entered in front of the right ear and passed through the brain lodging in the skull at the opposite side. Death had been instantaneous. - Herman Schutz, who was employed as bartender at the Wisconsin House by the deceased, informed an Appeal reporter that Billy had asked him to keep watch in the afternoon as he was going down town on business; was well acquainted with him; he could not stand much worry; and seemed to be brooding over his business affairs.  He came back to the saloon in the afternoon, and five minutes after he left heard three shots in rapid succession; did not see him drink anything but ice water during the day. - From another source it was learned that the deceased said he was afraid that Charlie was going to get all his business. - Within the past two days he had had a talk with Attorney Carlin regarding his troubles, and was apparently feeling very bad and out of spirits. - The question, what caused this dreadful tragedy was asked by many.  The friends of the deceased were aware that four years ago he almost went crazy and threatened to drown himself; he was at that time fretting over his business affairs, and was afraid John Pache, who at that time was proprietor of the Wisconsin House, would take all his business away. - He informed a friend of his recently that any drummer that stopped at his brother's hotel would get no order from him.  He no doubt thought that Councilman Mehl was backing his brother Charles to run opposition to him. - A strange feature in connection with the case is that he went to the Golden Eagle Hotel yesterday afternoon and asked to see his brother Bernard but was told that he was out.  The question arises did he intend to murder his brother Bernard, and failing to find him hunt up Charles. - Officer Parmelee met the deceased at the corner of Third and D streets about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon and did not notice anything peculiar about him, he did not look as if he had been drinking. - The deceased was a member of Oriental Lodge No. 45, I.O.O.F., of Marysville Encampment No. 6, I.O.O.F., and of Schiller Lodge No. 23, Order of Hermann Sons. Coroner Bevan stated last evening that he did not know when the inquest will be held. - District Attorney McDaniel made an investigation and ascertained that the shooting was done with the deceased's pistol, and that Charles Mehl was not armed.  All the legal proceedings to be gone through will be the holding of an inquest. - The deceased was married a few years ago to Miss Lizzie Efken, who was completely prostrated over the occurance [sic] last night. - Mrs. Charles Mehl, who had been informed by one of her neighbors that her husband had been killed, became so ill that a physicians services were required. - The respective places of business of both brothers were closed last evening, but a crowd hung around and discussed the fearful tragedy. - The deceased was a native of Germany and about 33 years of age.

E. Bevan stated yesterday that he would not hold the inquest on the remains of William Mehl until early next week. - The officers made an investigation of the premises yesterday where Mehl had attempted fratricide and committed suicide and satisfied themselves that three shots had been fired. - One bullet hole was located in the ceiling of the room where the shooting took place and the second bullet passed on a line between the first hole and the doorway through which Charles Mehl made his exit.  It is believed that the deceased fired the second shot while his brother was staggering towards the door after the first shot had been fired close to his head.  The third bullet was found in the brain of the suicide. - The deceased wore a heavy coat on Thursday afternoon which it is believed he donned on account of the size of the pockets as he wanted to hide his pistol. - Nearly every person that has discussed the shooting has expressed an opinion that it was the act of a crazy man. - The deceased was very ill about four years ago, and after he recovered he acted very queerly.  On one occasion his bartender went to look him up and located him laying on a bed in a small room in the back portion of the saloon.  He had two loaded pistols in the bed which so frightened his bartender that he sprang on him and took the guns away.  He made no remark when he came out into the barroom afterwards, and made no search for the weapons which were hid away. - On another occasion he failed to show up at night and his friends made search for him, as they believed he was going to drown himself from some remarks that he had previously made. - The men that were in the saloon when he entered the first time yesterday were surprised at his pleasant demeanor, as they knew that the brothers would not have dissolved partnership had there not been some disagreement. - There were others who noticed that since Charlie had opened up business a few days previous that Billy watched many of his regular customers who had commenced to patronize his brother. - The friends of the deceased have noticed many peculiar actions on his part since the death of his twin children about a year ago. - Deceased had an insurance of about $1,000 on his life at the time of his death.  Some time ago he surrendered a policy for $5,000 in a Galesburg, Illinois, company. - The wife of the deceased, who is a most estimable woman, has the sympathy of her many friends in this city. - The coroner will impanel a jury to-day, and after they have viewed the remains, he will remove the body to the family residence. - Mrs. Charles Mehl, who also received a terrible shock, was reported to be much better yesterday. - The funeral will take place tomorrow but the hour has not yet been agreed on.  The interment will take place in the Yuba City cemetery.

Marysville Herald - 9/3/1850, p2 - Murder - Last Saturday afternoon, a young man named John W. Mills, of New York City, was shot down in the street near the United States Hotel, by a person named John Keiger, and lived but a few seconds.  He was shot to the heart.  The two had shaken hands together but a few minutes before, and after a short conversation, Keiger drew his pistol and took deliberate aim at the breast of the unfortunate Mills.  They were not four feet apart when the shot was fired. - There were a number of witnesses by, and some citizens called out to a deputy sheriff who happened to be near to arrest Keiger.  He at once walked towards the officer, and delivered himself up.  He appeared very calm about the matter, exhibiting no feeling of regret. - Dr. Brewster, the Coroner, being absent from the town, Justice Ellet called a jury and held an inquest on the body of the deceased, and from the evidence, Keiger was remanded to a place of confinement, to await his examination, on Sunday morning. - A meeting was held in the evening, by the citizens to the number of about 200, among whom, as indeed throughout the town, there was a very excited state of feeling.  Many at the meeting expressed themselves strongly in favor of forcibly taking the prisoner from the custody of the Sheriff, and hanging him at once.  The better sense of the majority, however, prevailed, after considerable discussion, and a committee was appointed to wait on Judge Turner and request a trial on Sunday morning, with out waiting for the examination before Justice Ellet.  This however, the Judge could not do as the sapient legislators of last winter inserted no provision in the law, authorizing him to hold a special term of the Court, under any emergency, and the regular term does not commence until November.  The meeting appointed a Committee of 20 to keep guard all night at the building where the prisoner was confined, although the Sheriff had a guard of five men over him.  They proceeded to the building; the Sheriff, of course, refused to admit them, and they watched outside all night.  They seemed to think that the officers would purposely allow the prisoner to escape. - The anxiety of the citizens arose from the fact that crime in this country has hitherto gone unpunished.  We hope, and believe, that their fears, in this instance will prove to be unfounded. - On Sunday morning, the prisoner was taken before Justice Ellet for examination.  Keiger's own statement was that Mills was the business man of the Maine Mining Co., and that he had been working for that company principally for the

Appeal Democrat, Friday, July 26, 1946 Pg 1 - Suicide Leaves Three Meridian Dead - Ailing Man Turns Shotgun On Brother, Sister-in-Law, Friend In Double Slaying - Meridian, July 26. -Three Meridian residents are dead and one is in the Colusa hospital with critical wounds today, the result of a double murder and a suicide at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Al W. Blackmer in the early hours Thursday morning. Murdered are Mrs. A. W. Blackmer, 65, and Louis A. Moon, 77, her cousin, both victims of Marvin Blackmer, 69, who after slaying them with blasts from a 12-guage shotgun, turned the gun on himself, ending his life. In critical condition from shotgun wounds is Al W. Blackmer , brother of the murderer. As recounted by G. W. Carpenter, Sutter County sheriff, who was summoned to the scene last night after the tragedy had been disclosed., Marvin Blackmer arose about 2:45 a.m. Thursday in the cabin at the rear of his brother's home where he and Moon lived. He first turned the shotgun on Moon, killing him instantly and then entered the Blackmer home. Entering the bedroom where Mr and Mrs Blackmer were sleeping, he discharged a blast into the form of Mrs. Blackmer, a shot which Carpenter said wounded A. W. Blackmer. The slayer then aimed the gun at his brother's face, and pulled the trigger and left the room, retiring to his own quarters. Although the discharge left A. W. Blackmer with critical injuries, he is said to have regained consciousness long enough to stagger to the kitchen and then, unable to summon aid, returned to the bedroom where he lay down beside his wife. It was there he was found. - Lack of Activity Creates Suspicion - Carpenter said after returning to his cabin, Marvin Blackmer apparently attempted to put the shotgun beneath his chin in a suicide attempt. Finding the barrel too long, Carpenter said, the slayer cut off the end of the barrel with a hacksaw, tied a string from the trigger to his toe, replaced the gun under his chin and committed suicide. Bodies of the four were discovered at 7:48 last night by Clifton Davis who lives across the street from the Blackmer home. He told police he became suspicious when he noticed a lack of activity throughout the day and went to the Blackmer -Moon cabin to investigate. It was there he came upon Moon's body and after a search found the other victims. The sheriff and Coroner Burwell Ullrey were summoned.  - Consider Having Man Committed.  - A possible forewarning of the tragedy was seen by Carpenter through testimony of witnesses who said Mrs. Blackmer the day before had gone to Colusa to visit a daughter, Mrs. Lois Palletta. It was while there that Mrs. Blackmer is quoted as telling her daughter that "Marvin is getting more out of hand all the time and something must be done about him." A nephew, Harold Paxton of Yuba City said today that Mrs. Palletta and another daughter, Mrs. Ruth Allen, also of Colusa, discussed their mother's visit later that day and considered the possibility of having the man committed to a home. Marvin, Carpenter said, was a semi- invalid and was unable to talk coherently. He is said to have suffered an illness about 10 years ago, bringing on the speech impediment and loss of use of one of his arms and had been under the care of his brother and sister-in-law since that time. - Two Persons Recall Hearing Blasts - Witnesses, Carpenter said, declared that Marvin was unruly and had been getting worse in the past years. Investigation showed today that perhaps only two persons heard the fatal shotgun discharges. One was Mrs. Viola Doty who lived around the corner from the Blackmer's. She told Carpenter she had been feeling ill and that about 2:50 she arose to take medicine. She heard a percussion. However, since she said she had previously heard dogs howling in the neighborhood she believed someone was merely shooting at the dogs. The other person who claims to have heard the shots is Mrs. Davis, However, she discounted them as "backfire from passing machines" Carpenter said, and went back to sleep. - Former Teacher In Slough School - The Blackmer were well-known in the Meridian community. A. W. Blackmer is a native of Sutter county, born two miles south of town. She was a native of Colusa county.

Cameron drove to the French Sanitarium at Town Talk where he contacted Coroner L. R. Jetford of Grass Valley, who took charge of the body. - Moran resided at 236 South School Street at a home he was purchasing. He had worked Wednesday at the Banner mine and was apparently in no worse condition than for several days previously although he complained of recurring pains in a leg wound. - The veteran and mining shift boss was regarded as a high type of workman, honest and conscientious. - Superintendent Otto Schiffner of the Lava Cap company declared last night that Moran had been with the company for about a year or more and that he was regarded as a very fine type of man and bore an excellent reputation. - Moran was a native of Challenge, Yuba county, born June 24, 1892 and was aged 44 years, five months and eight days. Most of his life was spent in Challenge and the Yuba county territory, his Grass Valley residence dating back for about one and one-half years. - He was the husband of Mrs. Dorothy B. Moran, schoolteacher of Challenge; father of Frank and Bobbie Moran; step-father of Elaine and Billy Moran’ son of Mrs. Mary Skinner of Challenge and brother of Mrs. Eva Flett, Alameda,; Mrs. Frances Mosebach, San Francisco; Mrs. Josephine Burnell, Oakland; Mrs. Mable Massie, Oakland; James and Alec Moran, Los Angeles; John A.
