County Treasurer Huntoon Send* a Mullet Through Ills Heart on New Year'* Eve —A Hliortagc of Nearly $0*000 Found In Ilia Accounts. • Last Monday evening, about 8 o’clock, this community was thrown into 3 state of wild excitement by the report that County Treasurer, J. A. Huntoon, had committed sui cide in his office in the Court House. Everybody rushed to the Court House as soon as the report spread, Dr. Hazlett was immediately sum moned, and it was found that there had been no false alarm, for on the lloor of his office lay the Treasurer with a bullet hole in his left side and his life-blood ebbing away. He breathed his last at 8:20. A Coroner’s jury, which met at i o’clock Tuesday, brought forth the following facts: The old Board of Corn's, had met Monday to wind up the affairs of the county tor the old year, and had finished all business except counting the money. The Auditor and Treas urer not beinrj quite ready with the reports, the Board adjourned until 3 o’clock in the afternoon. This time having arrived the Board met again but the Treasurer failed to put in an appearance, and the Board took a recess until 7 o’clock that evening. At this hour the Board found no light in the Treasurer’s office, where the meetings are held, the door was locked and the Treasurer had not been seen since shortly before 3 o’clock that afternoon, when he was seen to w*alk through the lower part of the Court House and out the back door. Search was made but Mr. Iluntoon could not be found. Becom ing suspicious of something being wrong Commissioner Holland, Dep uty Sheriff Dreyfuss, Attorney Lo tlirop, and Treasurer-elect Loft us, went to the door of the office and found it locked. As they were going up stairs a dim light which was no ticed to be burning in the office went out. A pass key which attorney Lothrop had to the door failed to open it, and Drey fuss climed through the transom and opened the door from the inside. As the other per sons entered the room, and as attor ney Lothrop stepped around the end of the long desk in the office, there was a deafening report, the sound of a body falling a short distance, and then all was quiet except a gasping noise made by the dying man. A light revealed Huntoon lying partly on his side in about the center of the room on the floor. He was sitting on the floor when he shot himself, and by his side, on the floor, sat a lamp, the chimney on which was still warm. A letter addressed to John Lothrop and one to the Com missioners were also found in the safe. It was found that the bullet had entered his left side just below the nipple, passed between the fourth and fifth ribs, through the apex of the heart, severing the abdominal aorta, ranged inward and downward and made its exit between the pro cesses of the spinal column of the fifth and sixth ribs. The wound produced internal hemorrhage in the cavity of the chest and abdomen and paralyzed the entire system. Shortly after death the body was removed to the lower hall in the Odd Fellows’ building. The pistol used was a 38 caliber Smith & Wesson re volver of the hammerless pattern, and the bullet, after passing through the body, imbedded itself in the side of the wood-box in the Treasurer’s office. The weapon belonged to K. Pierini, and was taken from behind his bar by Huntoon sometime Mon day morning. The letter left by Huntoon to the Commissioners said he had been robbed since the 3d day of December last, but he knew peo ple would not believe this and he had made up his mind to die instead of stand txial for defalcation. The letter to Mr. Lothrop was asking him to look after the affairs of his office as Grand Recorder of the A. O. U. W^. and suggested that Grand Master Taylor go as a representative to the Supreme Lodge, in Chicago, a trip Mr. Huntoon was to have started on on the 3d of this month. He left an other letter, to his wile, m a sack ol coin, amounting to $4,330, which he took home to her Monday morning, and explained that it was Lodge money, and that she was to pay it out when demanded, except $500 which was to go to his sister, and the balance she was instructed to keep herself. J. A. Hauntoon was a native of Vermont, aged 47 years. He came to this iitate in the svcntics, and for a time resided in Silver City. lie has been Treasurer of this county for the past ten years, and Clerk for the fiast two years. He was defeated ast November for another term as Clerk and Treasurer by A. J. Lof tus, and his term would have ex Sired next Monday. He was Grand Recorder of the A. O. U. W., Juris diction of Nevada, and Grand Treas urer of the I, 0. 0. F. of this State, as well as Treasurer ol Huy ton Lodge No. 5, I. O. 0. F., of this place. It is supposed that the money that Iluntoon took to his home is enough to set the Lodge accounts nearly or quite square, and his bondsmen are good for the amount the county mon ey is short. It is evident that the shortage has existed for some time past, and that when quarterly count of money has been made heretofore the Treasurer has turned in the Lodge funds in his possession to make the county funds balance, but this time there was not enough money in both the county and Lodge funds, by about $1,300, to show an even balance. Mr. Huntoon left no money any where. While not much of a drink ing man he was a liberal and jolly Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. L. Gov’t Report Absolutely pure I " r' ■ ' fellow, whose expenses in the saloons would average $2.50 or $3 a day, and his election expenses during the last two campaigns have been very heavy, while he has loaned consider able money to different parties, some $1,200 in notes being found in his old safe, only about half of which are good. The funeral of deceased took place from the Court House Thurs day under the anspiccs of the I. O. O. F., and was largely attended, the members of both Orders to which he belonged turning out in force. He leaves a wife ana four young chil dren here, one sister in Vermont and one in "Wisconsin, and a brother in Canada to mourn his sad ending. -»—«. BRAND THE CLAIM AS FALSE, World’s Fair Officials Expose a Pre tender to an Award. Chicago, III.-One of the odd results of the World’s Fair is the claim now made to awards by some who were not even exhibitors. Of ficials of the Exposition have not as yet taken final action in the matter, believing the quick wit of the people will detect the spurious claims. But to the case of a New York baking powder, that has been widely advertising an award, the attention of the Chief Awards for Agriculture, has been directed. He brands the claim of this pretender as false, declaring “Neither the rec ords of this department, nor the of ficial catalogue of the World’s Columbian Exposition, show that this New York Company was an exhibitor; consequently it could not receive an award at the World’s Fair.’’ Those who fairly won their hon ors at the Fair seem disposed to treat this fraud as should be treated. The Price Baking Powder Com pany, of Chicago, having received the highest award, say they are convinced their claims, and those of all other holders of rightful hon ors, will be fully vindicated by the public. --+-* Card to the Public.
