The Colville Examiner, Saturday, January 18,1913
William Moore a well known
miner at the First Thought met
with a fatal accident last Sunday.
Mr. Moore at the time of the
accident was working alone on
an adjoining claim. The story
as told by the unfortunate man
was that he loaded and fired a
number of holes and had returned
when one of the shots exploded
into his face. He then groped
his way out of the tunnel and a
quarter of a mile down the trail
through the deep snow before
help could be reached. He was
taken to his cabin and on exam
ination it was found that both
eyes were completely blown out,
his face badly mutilated and a
number of heavy bruises about
the limbs and body. Although
the unfortunate victim retained
consciousness till the last, after
three days of intense suffering
he passed away. It is believed
that death was caused from in
ternal injuries. As far as can
be learned he leaves a widowed
T. A. Winter of Pasadena, Cal.,
one of the pioneer bankers of Col
ville, and the promoter and organ
izer of the Northwestern Light
and Power Co., was in Colville
the first of the week. Mr. Win
ter left on Tuesday for Spokane,
and will be joined by his brother,
C. W. Winter and family, who
will spend the next three months
in southern California.
At 7:30 Saturday morning a
fire alarm was turned in, but be
fore the department reached the
scene it was found there was no
apparent danger, and the appar
atus was taken back to the station.
The cause of the alarm was the
explosion of a can of gasoline in
the second hand store of G. W.
Kildow on north Main street.
The story as told by neighbors is
that Mr. Kildow was attempting
to start a fire in a heating stove
when the can exploded filling the
room with a sheet of fire for an
instant, blowing Mr. Kildow seve
ral yards away. W. H. Graham
who happened along found the
unfortunate victim enveloped in
flames. He picked him up and
threw him into a snow bank in
front of the building and by roll
ing and stamping him into the
deep snow extinguished the burn
ing garments. Mr. Kildow states
that although he is badly burned
about the body and hands he re
ceived many bad bruises from the
heavy boots of his benefactor.
