Gilson S'.itu'ay evening preparatory to tak ing his lift" ly holding a stick of dynamite with a lighted fuse ut taei.cd, to his head. Gilson'a body was found yester day morning about two miles north of this city, along the. pipe line. He had been employed on the line silica the work started and was re garded by the contractors as a good steady man. Saturday he drew his !!; and nroceeded to celebrate. It is , i-sumed that when he had spent all 'lis earnings he became despon dent, and decided on the suicide pi (iisition. Sinday evening after dusk he wandered out along the line, where he :.iet W. 3. Landers, the watch man. The two conversed for Sev ern! minutes. Landers had to re turn to town and asked Gilson to nccnipany him, but the latter sail tlr t ho had been drinking and p ro le i- -d the solitude of the desert uit'er than the bright lights of the e'i;. That was the last seen of l,i p until his body was found yes t ; 'ay morning. It is presumed that after he had been left alone he wrote the note, for the writing has the appearance of having been done either in a hurry or in the dark. It was scrib bled on an old time check which was replaced in the inside pocket of Gilson's coat. From appearances, Gilson secured a stick of dynamite, with fuse and caii, from the store used in blast ing the ditch. Lighting the fuse, he must, have assumed a reclining position and, holding the powder against his head with his left hand, awaited the end. The explosion naturally decapitated the body and also destroyed the arm. The search ers yesterday, could not even find a ragmen of the missing portions, and a hole about ten feet from the body showed where the deceased had lain when awaiting death. The remains were brought to town and taken to the morgue. A search of the effects proved the identity of the man and further showed that he was a member n good standing of the Point Rich mond, California, aerie of Eagles. In fact, when he first came to 'io nopah, about a month ago, he vis ited the local aerie, which was in strumental in securing him the po sition on the ditch. The deceased also belonged to the Bisbee, Ari zona. Miners' union, but had al lowed his card to lapse owing to the non-payment of dues. , Gilson was about 33 years of age and his appearance and conversa tion conveyed the 'impression th.it he had received a good education. That he was a wanderer, was shown from his letters, stating that he had traveled all over California dur ing the last few months. Nothing could be learned con cerning relatives, although word was sent to the secretary of the Point Richmond Eagles. An an swer is expected today and until this is received, no funeral arrange ments will be made. It is prob able, however, that the remains will be buried under the auspices of the local aerie. The coroner's inquest last eveiv ing elicited no new information con cerning the death and the verdict was that the demise was caused by suicide. LAS VEGAS VICTORIOUS OVER JOE SEITZ Down-the-Desert Ball Team Wins by a Score of Four to Three. In what is considered the best ba'l game ever witnessed in Tono pa'i, the Las Vegas team defeated Joe Sietz Sunday afternoon by a score of 4. to 3. Seitz was in the best of form and the way he played brought the fans to their feet In munerable times. He was somfc what unfortunate in breaking a fin ger on his pitching hand during the . , ond inning, but this made no dif ference in his playing ' and he con tin led In the game until the fin ish. Of the batters who faced, h:r, some 18 succeeded in striking cm, while the Las Vegas pitcher wai credited with fanning but 10 men. The attendance was better tha:i expected and every seat in the grand stand was taken In addition to a large bunch of rooters who gathered on the side lines. The game put up by the visiting team demonstrates their right to the championship laurels, for they were In the game every minute and supported their pitcher every time he got in a plncn, One of the features of the game was the umpiring by James J. Kel ly, who was right on the spot when ever a close decision was to be ren . dered. Of course there were a few kicks, but what is a ball game with out an umpire to be roasted? The score was 3 to 3 in the ninth, when the Las Vegas team brought DEATH CLAIMS MRS. S. V. PARKER LASTJATURDAY HIGHLY ESTEEMED TOXOPAIl RESIDENT PASSES AWAY AT REXO in the winning run.

O'Connell, who evidently never at home unjess he is resting under the fatherly eye of Sheriff J. J. Owens at the county bastil3, was the main squeeze in Justice Brisell's court yesterday. As usual, he was somewhat nervous from in dulging in disturbance waters and of course was there with the ex planation that it would never hap pen again. He was booked on a charge of disturbing the peace, hav ing been arrested by Deputy Sheriff Slavin, Sunday night. O'Connell vetured back to Tono pah last week, evidently forgetting that he had been vagged from the city nearly a year ago. On Sunday night he found that his former wife had cast him aside and was living happily with her new husband. O'Connell started to pay a friendly call to the lady and, contrary to his expectations, was not welcomed with open arms. Instead, he was told to "beat it," and had the door slammed in his face. Naturally, ne became angry, and with a terrific ngnt swing, drove his fist tnrougn the window. The impromptu moon light picnic was stopped about this time by Slavin, who had been sum moned. Yesterday O'Connell was found guilty of the charge above men tioned and was sentenced to pay ,i fine of $500, with the alternative of serving one day in the county jail for each two dollars of the fine. According to that rating O'Connell will be the county s guest for the next 250 days. Iiizpoh Hotel A Modern Hotel where very Reason able Tariff Prevails. Hot and Cold Running Water in Each Boom.
