DEAD MAN'S NAME
WAS PAIKURICH
John Bacurie was not the name of
the man who died from insanity in
the Federal jail yesterday morning.
Reliable information gives his name
as John Paikurich. Since the man's
death, several incidents have been
brought to light which explain his
brief insanity and his death after an
illness of two days.
About a month ago Henry Brie of
Douglas sold out the "Canteen" sa
loon and offered all his wares at re
duced prices. Paikurich although
spoken of by those who knew him
best as "not a drinking man" pur
chased from the stock of the Canteen
a 32 gallon cask of wine. 2 gallons
of gin. and 5 gallons of whiskey, and
took the lot to his cabin. During the
early days of the warm weather Pai
kurich remarked to one of his friends
that the wine was getting sour if
the hot weather didn't stop and he
guessed he would have to drink it to
savo ij.
Whether the man actually drank all
of his supply of firewater is not
known. The entire supply has been
used up in some manner, for there
isn't a drop left in the cabin. The
man was taken to St. Ann's hospital
in Douglas and after making a suc
cessful effort to escape from the nurs
es there he was taken in custody by
Deputy Marshar Frank Bach and put
in the Federal jail to await an ex
amination as to his sanity.
He died yesterday morning ? about
five o'clock. His wife and two little
daughters. *who live in Fiune, Hun
gary. have been notified. The body
is at the C. W. Young mortuary and
will probably be interred today at
the city's expense.
