COMMITTED MUIC1DE.
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

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.

In your next issue I will publish
a full and explicit statement of the
matter by which time the examin
ation now in progress in the Treas
urer’s office will have been com
pleted, and I will cheerfully accept
