Ed. Boucher Loses Llie. by Overturning oi Load oi Lumber 

While riding out to the Wild Rice River In the vicinity oi Mooreton, last Friday 
aiternoon, a bridge carpenter by the name oi Ed. Boucher, oi Minneapolis was Instantly 
killed. 

The load oi lumber on which he. was riding got out oi the road and In some way was 
upset, some oi the lumber ialllng upon the body. But post mortem examination revealed 
no cuts or bruises, and whether death was due directly to Injuries or was the result oi 
heart iallure brought on by the shock oi ialllng will probably never be deilnltely known. 

Neither oi the other two men who were on the wagon with him at the time was Injured, 
and It seems reasonable to conclude that the man had a weak heart which succumbed to the 
shock. 

The. young man was apparently about 25 or 30 years oi age, and was employed by the 
Jones Bridge Co., oi Minneapolis, which was promptly notliled oi the. accident, and Mr. 
Jonzs arrived next day and directed undertakers Onstad S Vaughn who had It In charge, 
to ship the body back to Minneapolis ior Interment, which was accordingly done.

MORPEREP AT WHEATON 
Facta Brought to Light Provz Man Did Not Commit Sulcldz. 

Gazette Reporter readers will rzcall the. rzport, publlshzd In thzsz column* two 
weeks ago, oi the. finding oi tfie body oi Gzorgz Stanley, who was employed as a iarm lab- 
orer In Clinton Township, with a fiope made. irom strands oi blnden. twine, around the neck 
and the znds iastzned to a bia.ce. supporting the. corner post oi a pasture foncz. 

'The body had been zxposed ioti ilvz days to thz cold weather prevailing at that 
time and was irozen when dlscoverzd. Thz appearance, oi the. body and all the surrounding 
circumstances teemed to clearly point to sulcldz a& thz mannzr oi the man's death. Therz 
wai> nothing. whatzver, so iax as outwardly appeared, to Indicate foul play, and the body 
was therefore, embalmed and shlppzd to Tedora, SV. 

Knowing thz disposition oi Stanlzy, his relative* wzrz loth to bzllzvz that he had 
taken hls> own lliz, and upon thz arrival oi thz body callzd In a physician to zxamlnz It. 
Whllz therz wzrz no outward appzaranczs oi violence hz thought thz dead man's appearance 
and expression oi hl& iacz did not Indicate death irom strangulation, Hz urgzd a post- 
mortem examination, which thz relative/) ilnally agrzzd to, and thz work was periormed by 
thz Coroner oi that county and thz doctor. A largz blood clot was found bztwzen thz scalp 
and thz skull and thz skull was found to fee cracked irom a point near thz right eye to a 
point back oi thz ear, a distance oi four or ilvz Inches. It was clearly zvldznt that the 
man's death was the result oi a heavy blow on thz head, zvldentty irom a iall upon some 
hard substancz oi irom a heavy club or other blunt Instrument In thz hands oi an assailant. 
In zither zvznt, thz sulcldz theory was proven Incorrect bzcausz thz blow must havz rznder- 
zd thz man unconscious and made It Imposslblz for him therzaiter to iastzn the rope around 
his nzck and attach It to thz bracz. On thz other hand, It szzms Imposslblz that hz could 
have Inilictzd the wound upon hlmseli aiter hz iastznzd thz ropz. Thzrz szzms no way to 
account for thz wound In thz head except upon thz thzory that Stanlzy was foully murdered 
and, In an zifort to hldz thz crime, thz guilty party or parties, dragged thz body to the 
place wherz It was found and iastznzd It to thz bracz to Indlcatz that death resulted 
irom sulcldz. 

Aiter ascertaining these focts, thz SherlU irom Ulner County and a brother oi the 
dead man camz at oncz to Whzaton and jolnzd SherlU Leonard, County Attorney Houston and 
Coroner Boley In a searching Inquiry Into Stanlzy 's llfo since hz camz to this country and 
a thorough Investigation oi the surroundings and parties with whom he has associated but 
not thz slightest cluz has bzzn unearthzd to old thz oHlczrs In solving thz mystery. 

Stanlzy had no money on his person, therzforz thz crlmz could not havz been commu- 
ted for robbery. So iar as can be Izarnzd, hz had no znzmlzs and no reason can be advanced 
why anyone should wish him harm. At this season oi thz year It Is highly Improbable that 
he could have been the victim oi tramps while on thz other hand no onz In thz neighborhood 
could havz any motlvz In committing thz crlmz. from thz focts obtalnzd It Is believed that 
hz met his death about nine o'clock In thz zvznlng whllz returning irom the home oi a 
neighbor to the place wherz hz worked.

Well - Known WahpeXon Hotel Man Burled Saturday. 
WAHRETON, ND....Feb. 8th . . . , Funeral services were held Saturday over the body oi Robert 
W! Mltton, one oi ike best known hotel, men oi the. northwest, and a resident oi WahpeXon 
ioK almost thirty years. Mr. Mltton was manage*, oi the. Merchants Hotel In this city 
continuously irom 1886 up to the. day oi his death, though ion the. last iew years most oi 
the active management hoi been done by his oldest son, Robert C. MiXton. Death was caused 
by a complication oi disease which had kept him conilned to his bed most oi the. winter. 

Mr. MiXton was a Mason oi Thirty third degree and the. iuneral was In change oi the. 
WahpeXon commandery. Many out-oi-town Masons attended, the. iuneral. Thlt> evening the body 
wo6 taken to Winona, MN., lor burial. 

Ma.. Mltton was born at Winona, MM., In 1861 , and came to this city with hl& patient* 
In 1884. In 1886 he took charge oi the Merchants Hotel In this city, which he. hat conduct- 
ed continuously even, since. 

"Bob" Mltton, as he was iamillarly known, was one oi the truly original characters 
oi Horth Dakota, and his acquaintance among the traveling public covered pratlcally every 
part oi the noKthwest. Everyone who knew him was his inlend. He had been ill ion. many 
months with the malady which ilnally caused his death, but set an example which it would 
be well iofi all oi us to bollow, Mr. Milton had a gtieat propensity ion, pnactlcal jokes, 
some oi which were hanmiul, however, and his jokes and bits oi dry humor have become stan- 
ard In many towns throughout the state. Evenjy traveling man In this pant oi the countny 
knew "Bob" as well as neanly evenjy one who has chanced to be In the city a guest oi his 
hotel. 

He is survived by his mother, his wlie and three children: Clyde, the present 
manager oi the hotel, a daughter, Varna, and a little son, Ralph. Besides these, there 
are a host oi inlends who will miss him and ever mourn his death.

James Ross died at his home near the Siss.eton agency last week, aged SO years . 
Deceased was one oi th.e ilrst settlers In this part oi the country and amassed a tidy 
iontune as an Indian trader. The writer well remembers his trading post on the shore oi 
Lake Tewaukon, in Sangent County. In 1884 t when a Fourth oi July celebnatlon was held, 
1500 Indians were In attendance. They gave their tribal, dances, a sham battle and did 
other stunts that were a revelation to th.e newly arrived settlers inom the east. 

The Ross store was stocked with beads oi bright colors, blankets and other goods 

that appealed to the eye oi the red men, and price was no consideration as long as th.elr 

money lasted. Mr. Ross was a couple oi times an unsuccessiul candidate ior oiilce In 

Sargent County, but we believe he served one term as State Senator irom Roberts Co.

TYSON'S VEATH GREAT SHOCK. 

KENMARE NEWS.... Feb, 25th The entire community was shocked this morning when wold wa6 

received irom Rochester, MN,, that Harry V. Tyson, one oi Kenmare's best known and respect- 
ed citizens had died at 5 AM this morning. The telegram sent by Mrs. Tyson to her lister, 
Mrs. A. M. Ambrose was briei, containing very little more than the news oi Mr, Tyson's 
death. 

Mrs. Ambrose le&t Immediately to join her bereaved lister, and return with the body 
to Kenmare. Friends oi the late Mr, Tyson had believed he was getting along nicely In the 
Rochester Institution, Information to that eiiect being sent home by Mrs. Tyson several 
days ago, and ior this reason the message oi death received over the wire this morning was 
all the more a shock. 

Ailing ior some tune with what his local physician diagnosed as a tumor, deceased 
decided several weeks ago to enter the iamous Mayo Institution to undergo an operation. 

The operation was declared to have been successful, according to Mrs. Ty&on, who 
was at her husband's bedside at the time oi the operation, from this, relatives and 
iriends take It that while the operation was a success, there were complications let In 
that caused his untimely death, 

Harry Ty&on was one oi the best liked young men, . .he was only thirty two.,. In town. 
To know Harry Tyson was to admire him. That Is no play on words. Harry Tyson was just a 
man oi the people, no irills, no make-believe, nothing that you couldn't count on, or acc- 
ount ior, he was ialr and square, and a man, 

Harry Tyson was just coming Into his own. As manager ior the A. E. Paulson S Co. 
Implement House, he was recognized as the leading man In his line, and last spring his 
iellow citizens recognized his worth, electing him to the high oiilce oi Police Magistrate, 
where merit and Integrity are the requests. He was one oi the leading spirits In the Masot 
Lodge and to employ the words oi the master oi that organization, Harry Tyson could always 
be counted on to put his shoulder to the wheel and help along In any way possible. 

As a public oHlclal he was honest and iearless but at the &ame tone ready to throw 
a mantle oi charity over the downiaU. oi his iellows and help up rather than crush down. 

The deceased was bom In Hanklnson, In this &tate, thirty-two years ago. He came 
to this country about the year 1900 and pioneered It In Pleasant Township, where he proved 
up a homestead. About &lx. years ago he moved Into Kenmare and has been a part oi the home 
town Hie ever since. 

He Is survived by his wlie and three sons . The body will be brought home but the 
iuneral arrangements are not oi course known as yet. 

Tonight the Masons, the iraternlty, are meeting In special session as the result 
oi the death oi their brother. ********** March 11, 1915

accident just too days aiter the baby was born; how her tittle, home, and all the iurnlture 
had been sold to pay these bills, and all the money kept by hex creditors, so that she 
did not even know how much the. hale o& thz property KeaJLLzed; how the was looking ior work 
and tried to place hex baby In the Children's home., which she was unable to do. 

Some. brainless reporter on the. NWS heard that a woman had asked to leave, hex baby 
at the. Children's Home, and without iurther Investigation wrote a story ior state-wide 
publication which was a libel on the. city oi Wahpeton, hen, hospital and hen. physicians. 
Little did the reporter know what consequences would result irom his pitiful "sob stony." 

The. statements made. In the above, mentioned stony gave, a mighty bad Impression oi 
thz Children's Home In Tango, and as a result the superintendent wrote, a letter to the 
forgo forum, In which he. explained just why the. child was reiused admission to the. home, 
and told something oi the. circumstances oi thz case. This article was also published In

that hzr "brother, " who was coming on the f-Ulwaukee irelght was seventeen years old. She

"In telling me oi the death oi hzr husband only a tittlz over too weeks previous, she 
showed not a trace oi grlei, and even smiled, which aroused my curiosity. I asked her where 
her child was born and what doctor attended her, and she replied, "Vr. Vevlne, at his hosp-

Thz story 0(J thz woman and her baby in Fargo had bzcomz known throughout thz state

Thz authorities o& this city madz inquiries. It was discovzrzd that thz couplz lz£t thz

tnain, whzn quzdtionzd, statzd positively that hz Kzcognizzd thz couplz. . . remembered their 
going on his train, and laid that thzy had no baby with thzm whzn thzy boarded his train. 

I|J this was true. . .and thz Information seemed reliable. . .what had bzcomz ol thz baby? 

STATE'S ATTORNEY GETS BUSY 

Acting on thz Information szcurzd during thz next &ew days, thz statz's attorney o$ 
Richland County, Joseph G. Forbes, caused warrants to bz Issued ion. Robert G. Sinclair o{ 
Stirum, NO., and Ml&S Edith Johnston otf MlZnor, MP., changing thzm with a minor oifonsz on 
which thzy could bz hzld for at least thirty days, whilz foriher investigation could bz 
madz. SherlH Frank Budack, zquippzd with thz warrants, wznt out to Stirum Friday to makz 
thz arrests. Hz found Sinclair at homz, and Miss Johnston also in Stirum, having gonz over 
foom her homz at MilnoK to attznd a dancz with Sinclair. Both parties werz placzd under 
arrest and brought to Wahpzton Saturday morning. 

GIVEN TH1RV VEGREE 

On being brought to Wahpzton, both parties werz takzn direct to thz statz'& attorney 's 
oiiicz. Hzrz thzy werz told o£ thz zvidznez against thzm on thz chargz o& posing as man and 
vaifo and occupying thz samz room at thz Merchants Hotel, and a^ter somz sweating thzy plead 
guilty to that chargz. 

Thzn began thz real zxamination, which lastzd throughout thz greater part otf thz day. 
Sinclair was thz llrst onz to bz Questioned. He was told that it was known that they had 
a baby with them while in this ciXy just two weeks before, and asked where IX was. He 
replied that It was "in good hands, and I will produce it when the time comes." He stated 
that when they le^t the hotel for the depot, he had sent the woman ahead, and that he bun- 
szli had takzn thz child and given it to a Miss Tina Johnston, otf Terry, MT., a cousin o£ 
the Johnston woman who was with him; that she had come to Wahpeton at their request and 
now had the child which she had taken to her home at Terry. 

(128) 



The. stony o& counsz sounds plausible, whzn thz mannex in which it was told was 
considzxed. fluting all the. qustioning Sinclain did not appzax to be at all wonxizd 
ovzn the. outcome., and was not, appaxzntly, even nexvous, so that hz could pass oii stonizs 
with an aix oi teZting thz txuth. Thereupon he. was taken out oi thz noom and Miss John- 
ston brought In ion zxamination. Hex stony oi whexz the. child now cauld be iound was much 
the. same., but diUexzd in two important details . She said thz child was givzn ovzn to 
hex cousin, FLinex Johnston and his wiiz, also oi Texxy, who had bzzn visiting nelativzs in 
Nzbnaska and had happznzd to stop oil hexz on thzix way homz. Shz also said that shz and 
Sinclain met thzsz cousins oi hzAS on thz way to thz dzpot, and gave thz baby to them. 

Thz man's stony deleted so inom thz woman's that it was oi couasz zasily szzn that 
it was a stony hastily madz up and not having any tAuth whatzvzn. Shz was thzn told oi thz 
stony which SinclaiA. gave, and again and again was askzd "What has bzcomz oi thz baby?" 
Finally bnoken down by thz supexion intzlligzncz and shanpzA wits oi hzn intznnogatons , shz 
cnizd out, "I don't know whzAz my baby Is," Shz said that on thz way inom thz hotel to thz 
dzpot, Sinclain had sznt hex on ahead saying that he would pla.cz thz baby on somz doonstzp 
and join hzn at thz dzpot, Shz had pnotzstzd at iinst, but had yizldzd to him as always 
shz had donz, and he had Izit hzn with thz baby, Whzn he joinzd hzn latzn at thz station 
he told hzn that hz had placed thz baby "in good hands" and that shz should not wonny about 
it. Shz said that shz was not satisiizd zntiAzly, and nzpzatzd hex questions szvznal times, 
asking assunancz that thz baby was all niaht. Again on thz tnain shz had said, "I wondzA 
how thz baby is" and hz had again assunzd hzn that it was well takzn canz oi and all niaht. 
Shz was told that it was bzlizvzd that thz baby had bzzn donz away with, but in spitz oi 
this shz swonz again and again that this was all shz knzw about it. . .Sinclain had told hzn 
thz baby was "in good hands" and shz nzed not wonny. 

It was bzlizvzd that hzn stony so ion was txuz, at Izast in its zsszntial dztails , 
and shz was nemovzd inom thz noom and SinclaiA. again bought in. Hz was told a pant oi what 
thz woman had conizsszd,. . .that thzy knzw hz was lying, and wantzd him to tell thz wholz 
Stony oi what hz did with thz baby. 

Thexz iollowd thnzz solid houns oi questioning, in which Sinclain showzd that hz 
zithzn has no nznvzs at all on els z that thzy anz oi inon. He became sullzn, dziiant, imp- 
zntinznt by tuAns, at times nziusing to talk and at othzn times daning them to do thzin 
wonst. Said hz, whzn askzd ii hz could iunnish $20,000 bonds to guoAantzz his pnoducing 
thz child in count whzn thz timz came, "In tzn minutes I can ge* any amount oi bonds." 
Said hz iunthzA, "you go ahead, and wi'll have, a littlz law suiX ovza it, and -see whznz 
you comz out. What anz you going to do about it?" 

Howzvzn, whzn coninontzd with thz zvidznez givzn by thz woman and whzn hz saw thexz 
was no loop hole thnough which hz might zscapz, hz saidi 

THE CONFESSION 

"I'll show hex that I'm a neal spont anyway. I killzd thz kid." F nam thzn on thing, 
moved vexy napidly, and only a izw minutzs wexz nzzdzd to get thz complztz stony oi thz 
cnime.. 

(.129) 



Whzn Edith Johnston, at thz age. o& elghtzzn, had faund herself about to become a 
mother, owing to her relations with Sinclair, the. couple, had dzcldzd that the. should go 
to Brzckznrldgz and enter a hospital thzrz under an assumed name, In the. meanwhile deceiv- 
ing hex parents as to hex whereabouts , 

Sinclair had accompanied hex to Brzckznrldge, whexz they remained a couple o^ days 
Jin a hotel bzfarz going to thz hospital. On thz day a^ter Christmas, Dec. 26th, Hiss Johns- 
ton entered thz hospital, giving thz namz o£ Wis. John Johnson. Hex "husband" accompanied 
hex to thz hospital, but Iz^t Immzdlatzly a^tzr hex zntxy thzxz. Thz baby was born on Jan. 
21st, a filnz healthy baby glxl. Thz mothzx had bzzn qultz III, and was slow In nzcovexing, 
but whllz thexz had madz irlznds with all who camz In contact with hzr, and was well llkzd 
by thz nuxszs and szvexal convalzscznt patlznts with whom shz vlsltzd {rzquzntly. It was the 
opinion o£ thz nuxszs that shz could not Izavz thz baby thexz unless shz would consent to 
Its adoption, shz would not glvz It up and thzy returnzd to Wahpeton. Trom this point on 
Slnclalx saw that l{> hz wantzd to bz safa irom thz conszquznczs oi his mlsdzzds, hz must 
dzvlsz somz way to "gzt hid oh thz kid." 

Arriving at thz Merchants Hotel, thzy registered as Mr. and Wis. St, Clalx, and with 
thz baby, occuplzd onz loom at thz hotzl Saturday night. Slnclalx In his concession said 
that hz spznt thz greater paxt oi Sunday In txylng to makz thz woman consznt to his taking 
thz child out and leaving It on a doorstep somzwhexz, saying that hz could dlsposz oi It 
whexz It would bz well taken caxz oi. At last hz galnzd hex consznt, though reluctantly 
given. Hz assuxzd hex that hz would szz that It got Into good hands, and would bz well 
taken caxz oi. 

KllLEV BABY WITH SCISSORS 

This, was about nlnz o' clock Sunday zvznlng, T-zb. 6th. Having galnzd hex consznt 
to his taking thz baby, hz askzd hex to Stzp Into thz bathxoom on somz pretext and whllz 
shz was thexz, hz tlzd a shoestring around thz baby's throat to stxanglz any cries, stsxiizd 
a largz towel down Its throat, and stabbed It In thz sldz oi thz head faux or &lvz times 
with a pair oi scissors. This all took less tlmz than It takes to tell It, as hz had It 
all ilgurzd out bzfarzhand. Placing thz dead body In a sultcasz, hz lz{t thz hotzl, and 
whzn Hiss Johnston camz out oi thz bathroom hz was gonz. Going up thz strzet In search oi 
a pljx.cz to leave thz body, hz camz to thz MUbnaukzz depot, and thexz, In thz vault oi thz 
outhousz, hz deposited all that remained oi thz llttlz Innocent babz. 

On his return to thz hotzl, Sinclair told his paramour that hz had placed thz baby 
on thz doonstzp oi a housz, that IX had bzzn faund and was being well takzn caxz oi. Shz 
rzqulxed many assurances that this was so, but, bzcausz shz wlshzd to believe It, It was 
comparatively easy to convince hex that thz baby was all right. 

Thz next morning, whzn przparlng to Izavz thz hotzl, they prepared a bundle oi news- 
papers which thzy wrapped up with a blanket to res emblz an Infant In arms , and lz&t far thz 
dzpot. On thz way thexz thzy threw away the papers . This explains why It was believed that 
thzy took thz baby with them irom thz hotzl, but did not havz It on thz train. 

They proceeded to thelx rzspzctlvz homes, and while their abszncz was dlUlcult to
