SUICIDE—A man named Wm. WEBELBUTH committed suicide by hanging himself in his cabin on Saturday the 2nd inst. in Grapevine Gulch near Murphys in Calaveras county. He was a native of Germany and about 58 years of age. The suicide was evidently premeditated but the reason which led him to commit the rash act are not known. He was the owner of the Louise quartz mine, which he deeded to a friend named CARLEY shortly before taking his own life. He also had about one hundred dollars in money in his cabin at the time.
