ACCIDENT NEAR YOSEMITE.

James McCAULEY Dies from the Result of a Runaway.

James McCAULEY, one of the best known pioneers of Yosemite Valley, was killed in a runaway accident on the Coulterville grade going down into the Cascades of the Merced River, in Yosemite Valley, last Saturday morning about 7 o'clock. Mr. McCAULEY left his home at the Big Meadows about 6 o'clock that morning with a load of beef which he was taking to the valley. When about three miles from his ranch the team which he was driving became frightened from some unknown cause and ran away down the grade. After running a distance of about half a mile, the wagon tipped over and Mr. McCAULEY was thrown out, sustaining a broken neck, several broken ribs, a mashed head and face and other cuts and bruises. No one witnessed the accident, but the tracks of the wagon on the down grade indicated the manner of the accident. Mr. McCAULEY was probably instantly killed.
The body was found by a party of campers coming out of the Yosemite at about 10 o'clock the same morning. The team was standing quietly in the spot where the wagon had turned over and Mr. McCAULEY'S body was found lying on top of the load of meat. The campers seeing that the man was dead, returned to the Cascades and notified Mr. HASKELL, who at once telephoned to the army surgeon in the valley. The surgeon and a detail of soldiers went to the scene at once and Mr. HASKELL went to the Big Meadows, where he notified Mrs. McCAULEY and her son Fred. As soon as the surgeon and soldiers arrived on the scene an inquest was held, it being found that death was due to an accident as stated above.
James McCAULEY was born in County Anthram, Ireland, May 10, 1841, and came to California in 1868, settling in Yosemite Valley in 1870. In 1871 Mr. McCAULEY built the short trail to Glacier Point hotel, of which he was proprietor for 18 years. After retiring from the hotel business Mr. McCAULEY went to his Big Meadows ranch, where he has since resided, being engaged in the wholesale butcher business, supplying the Yosemite Valley and a number of mining caps with meats.
He was married in Coulterville in 1879 to Miss Barbara WENGER, who survives him. Three children, Jules McCAULEY of Groveland, and John and Fred McCAULEY of Yosemite, are the result of the union.
Mr. McCAULEY became a member of the Mariposa Lodge, No. 39, I. O. O. F., in 1869 and retained his membership there continuously. He was one of the best known men in Mariposa county and extended his acquaintances to all parts of the world by entertaining the hundreds of tourist who visited the Glacier Point hotel during the term of his proprietorship. He was also well known in Merced, Stanislaus and Tuolumne counties and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him speaks a kind word for his character and offers a strong regret that he should meet so unkind a fate.
After the death of Galen CLARK, which occurred last year, Mr. McCAULEY was the oldest pioneer in the Yosemite valley. Mr. McCAULEY'S death brings to mind the death of a former friend and pioneer, J. M. HUTCHINGS, which occurred eight years ago. Mr. and Mrs. HUTCHINGS were driving on the Oak Flat grade when their team became frightened and ran away, Mr. HUTCHING being thrown from the wagon and killed, while Mrs. HUTCHINGS sustained no injuries. Mr. HUTCHINGS, Galen CLARKE and Mr. McCAULEY were close friends for many years and each loved the beautiful valley where they resided with a tenderness that was almost a passion. With Galen CLARKE, his love for Yosemite was the one great passion of his life and he cared naught for anything but to worship nature there and be close to his old friends. Mr. HUTCHINGS and Mr. McCAULEY, while also great lovers of nature, were both endowed with much business ability. Mr. McCAULEY'S ranch at the Big Meadows is one of the beauty spots of the mountains and is a valuable piece of property. As the news of his death reaches the homes of the people of the mountain country there will be genuine sorrow and regret from one end of Mariposa county to the other, for this good man was loved by all. - Merced Sun, June 26.

    McCAULEY/WINGER marriage November 29,1879 Mariposa Gazette (submitted by W. Disbro)
    Editor Gazette.- Yo Semite Valley Nov. 22, 1879. In viewing the issues of the 8th and 15th of your paper, I noticed quite a flutter in the young people of your section, who thought they were oh! so lonesome living alone, and took to themselves husbands and wives, to remain as one through the remainder of their lives, even unto death, through good and evil report. But, while your section has been fortunate as to have such happiness; we in our secluded spot have been equally so. In the advent of two hearts which now beat as one, which in other than the marriage of Mr. James McCAULEY to Miss Barbera WINGER, a twin sister of our Fritz, on the Coulterville Road, and niece of Dan HOELTZEL, ( more thoroughly known as Dutch Dan.) The ceremony took place at the residence of Mr. HOELTZEL, and was performed by our own honored citizen Judge MORRIS, at 8 o'clock on Tuesday evening Nov. 8th. The first the people of Yo Semite knew of it was by the arrival of a carriage driven by Frank KENNY, which had the happy couple aboard, they drove to Leidigs hotel where Mrs. LEIDIG soon made them feel at home. Notwithstanding the blushing bride insisting on her not going to any trouble on their account; but Mrs. LEIDIG were of the same opinion that the other folks were in the valley, that a little trouble was of no earthly consequence, (oh no not at all) so at a early hour guest began to assemble around the house, some with tin pans, horns and old coal oil cans, and from the number of coal oil cans one would of thought an oil well had been struck in the valley, and all were bent on having their share of the spoils, but in a few moments after all such thoughts were dispelled by the most terrific noise one has ever been accustomed to hear, Mrs. LEIDIG thought the stove had fallen and the house was on fire, and Fred rushed with frantic haste to the parlor with McCAULEY in the rear, seeing nothing there to cause suspicion Fred said it must be another house, so rushing out the door and across the yard- entered not unto the house but unto the arms of a well gotten up Charivari party headed by Alick EARLY, the gentlemanly stage driver who sang out 'sold again bring him out.' But Jim being already brought out crawled towards the parlor and said come in boys you will catch cold out here, and take something to warm you up, and in a shorter space of time than it takes to tell it all hands were gathered around a bountiful filled table with phials on it marked champagne, bourbon whiskey and soon two hours were whiled away to the pleasure and satisfaction of all present.
