   "The Ironton Register announces that Dr. GATES, of Proctorville, did not go to Europe as was thought last October, but has been
 seeking seclusion on the slopes of the Pacific. It will be remembered that the Doctor was tried in Ironton last
 summer on a charge of having poisoned his wife, and although acquitted, public opinion held him to be guilty.
 In October he suddenly disappeared leaving several thousand dollars indeptedness. The Register has information that he has
 been seen at Walla Walla, Washington Territory, and has assumed the name of Dr. H. M. Snider."
