"KAMP--THE SAN FRANCISCO MURDER -- About a week ago a young man in San Francisco named KAMP, was shot in the head by "Johnny DEVINE, the Chicken." A dispatch dated Thursday evening reads as follows: Coroner LETTERMAN visited the County Hospital this evening for the purpose of taking the deposition of August KAMP, who was shot by Johnny DEVINE, but found him insensible and in a dying condition. A short time afterwards KAMP expired. The deceased was a young man, and a German by birth, who had resided at Antioch. On visiting San Francisco he fell in with DEVINE, a Pacific street desperado, who borrowed $20 from him. Because KAMP insisted on the repayment of the money, DEVINE, after taking him to a lonely spot near Hunter's Point, shot him in the head and left him for dead. KAMP recovered sufficiently to describe his assassin, and after his arrest identified him. But the mere statement of the murdered man can not be admitted as testimony on the trial. His dying affidavit only is regarded as legal evidence in the case. Without this affidavit conviction will be difficult, if not impossible. It is strange that the city authorities in so clear a case of brutal murder as this would neglect until too late to take the necessary steps to secure the most vital testimony in the case."

"KASEBERG--PIONEER'S LIFE ENDS SUDDENLY--James W. KASEBERG Dies At Placer County Ranch--Was in Sacramento Last Saturday and Boasted of Good Health - He Made a Large Fortune With Freight Teams, at Stock Raising and Farming--James W. KASEBERG, one of the oldest and best known citizens of the Sacramento Valley, a pioneer teamster, farmer and stock raiser, and at one time a resident of this city, died suddenly yesterday forenoon at his ranch near Roseville, Placer County, where he has resided for a great many years. Mr. KASEBERG and his wife were in Sacramento last Saturday, on their way home from a visit to San Francisco. To old friends who met him and asked him about his health he said he had never felt better in his life. He was taken suddenly ill at his home Sunday morning and a physician was called, but he only lived a few minutes. "Jimmy" KASEBERG, as deceased was widely and popularly known, laid the foundation of his large fortune - it being estimated that he was worth $500,000 or more - by running freight teams between this city and the mines in the early days. It was said that at one time he had the largest wagon freighting business out of Sacramento. When that business began to decline he turned his attention to stock raising engaging principally in the sheep and wool business. He acquired vast ranges of grazing land in Placer County and has prospered for years. Mr. KASEBERG was married twice. His first wife died several years ago. About two years ago he was married to Dr. Josephine CALLAHAN, a practicing physician, who survives him. He is also survived by four children by his first wife. They are Mrs. R.P. DOOLIN, Mrs. J.F. TYLER, Miss Winnifred KASEBERG and William KASEBERG. Mr. KASEBERG was also an uncle by marriage of Mrs. F.D. RYAN. He was 77 years of age."

We have no particulars or details, except that $20 were found in the pocket of the clothing on the corpse. It will be remembered that KELLERSBERGER left here some 4 or 5 months ago, clandestinely, going, as was supposed, in the direction of San Jose. After his departure it was found that he was involved in debt, and it was charged that some of his debts were of a fraudulent character. He had resided in San Francisco for a long time previously and had always had a good reputation in the community.

"KELLEY--San Francisco, July 6, 1887- Thomas LANGDON shot Charles KELLEY in the neck in San Francisco on Tuesday night. The cause of the affray was a dispute about who had a lucriative beat as a special officer in Chinatown. Joseph KELLEY, who tried to disarm Langdon, was shot in the arm. KELLEY died this morning. LANGDON was charged with murder. KELLEY was at one time a prominent and prosperous hack owner in this city. After one of MAGUIRE's failures as a manager of the Baldwin Theatre, he was succeeded by KELLEY, who unsuccesfully conducted the establishment. He visited Sacramento with a number of theatrical combinations, and was very well known there. Today LANGDON showed extreme remorse for his act. Speaking of the affair he said: "When I met Charles last night he spoke to me, and during the conversation the matter of his brother's boat came up. I told him I thought his brother wanted the whole world, and one word followed another. Finally, he said something about giving me all I wanted, and throwing back his coat, he placed his hand in his hip pocket. I belived he was bout to draw his revolver on me, and to save myself, I shot him. I swear before God I would not have shot him unless I thought he was going to shoot me. He fell to the sidewalk, and then his brother came out of the store runing toward me. I fired a second shot. I know that Joe was always armed, and naturally supposing he would attempt to kill me for shooting his brother, I shot again. This is the truth of the whole unfortunate affair, and all I can say in conclusion, is that I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart that it happened." Source: Sacramento Bee, 6 July 1887.

"KELLY--Martin KELLY was the youngest of three brothers, being himself about forty three years of age. He was a native of Kings county, Ireland, as were his two elder brothers, Michael Joseph and Peter KELLY. Was though well-known contractor, who died not long since in this city, while the latter, who has until recently been engaged in the grocery business, is still a resident here, living on Fell street, near Gough. There is a widowed sister also residing in San Francisco. The father of the KELLYs was a well-to-do Irish farmer, who gave his sons something at least of a start in the world, of which all made good use. Martin KELLY, the deceased, came to America about thirty years ago, landing in New York, where he remained for a short time, but soon pushed Westward to San Francisco. Here he wisely invested what money he had in land on the outskirts of this city, from time to time increasing his investments as he obtained the money to do so. As a result he soon began to realize handsomely, and such property as now stands in his name in this city is valued at all the way from $50,000 to $75,000. He lately owned considerable real estate on Hayes and Fell streets, a few blocks beyond Van Ness avenue. Mr. KELLY took considerable interest in local politics and served four years in the Legislature as Senator from this city. For several years past he has acceptably filled the position of Assistant Chief Wharfinger under Captain CORCORAN. Mr. KELLY was never married, but has always shown himself devoted to the children of his brothers and sisters. He has several grandnephews attending school at St. Mary's, Oakland, whose expenses he has been paying, to a great degree, at least, and his fatal journey across the bay yesterday was made chiefly to pay them a visit. Genial in temperament and invariably courteous, he stood high in the esteem of everyone, whether relatives or merely acquaintances." Source: San Francisco Examiner, 31 May 1890, p. 2.
