September 23, 1868 [SDU]: “Santa Barbara Items. From the Post of September 12th we glean the annexed: A most cold-blooded and wanton murder occurred in Santa Barbara on Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Two Indians, in the employ of Dr. Shaw, on Santa Cruz Island, came to this place on Saturday last, and, as usual, were seen constantly together, having been heretofore great friends. In the afternoon they by some means obtained liquor, of which they both partook. Late at night a quarrel arose, and Francisco Dominguez stabbed Jose, his former friend and companion, in the abdomen, from the effects of which he died on Sunday afternoon. Dominguez was arrested and is now lying in jail.”


September 25, 1868 [SDU]: “Murder in Santa Barbara. The Post of September 19th has the following: A most cold-blooded and wanton murder occurred in this place late on Saturday night or early Sunday morning last. The particulars, as far as we have been able to learn them, are as follows: Two Indians, in the employ of Dr. Shaw, on Santa Cruz Island, came to this place on Saturday last, and, as usual, were seen constantly together, having been heretofore great friends. In the afternoon they by some means obtained liquor, of which they both freely partook. Late at night a quarrel arose, and Francisco Dominguez stabbed Jose, his former friend and companion, in the abdomen, from the effects of which he died on Sunday afternoon. For some time the perpetrator of this terrible deed was unknown, but late in the afternoon, through the energy and perseverance of Ames, who is connected with the Sheriff’s office, he was ferreted out, and on Monday taken before Justice Cooley, examined and committed to jail to await the action of the next Grand Jury.”
