Eudress, Charley
Reading Independent, Oct 24, 1878


To-day, a few minutes before 12 o'clock, a report was on the streets that Charley Eudress, a German, who within up to a short time had been keeping the Verandah House saloon, had shot and killed himself. A reporter of the "People's Cause" at once repaired to that locality and found a large crowd collected on the verandah at the north-east corner of the house. The body lay where it had fallen, while the walls and floor were spattered with the blood, teeth and portions of the face of the unfortunate man. Thus far it has not been ascertained whether the shooting was accidental or intentional, as the Coroner's inquest has not yet been held. The charge went in just back of the point of the chin, and it appears that the head must have been thrown back, as the entire face and a portion of the head was shot away, probably leaving the back part of the head intact. A portion of the charge from the shot-gun, with which the shooting was done, lodged in the ceiling overhead, which seems to prove this theory correct.

Charley Eudress located in Shasta about the year 1853. He was employed for several years in Charles Boell's bakery, afterwards superintending a mining ditch for Lewin & Baehr; and subsequently engaged in merchandising at Piety Hill, Shasta County. In about 1871 he came to this place, being employed at the Tremont, and afterward with Chris Heider of Tehama. Charles Mahler, by whom the deceased has been employed at different times, says that he can ascribe no cause for the act, if it is suicide, as he does not think he was embarrassed to any great extent financially.
