Moorehead, recent arrivals from La Grande, Oregon, died as a result of pneumonia in the Hill apartment, on South Jefferson street, next to the creamery.

The family came here recently from La Grande, Oregon, seeking work. They had little means. They secured a room at the Hill apartments and the boy was taken ill. It is his fifth attack of pneumonia and he could not withstand it. Death came shortly after noon Tuesday. The body was taken to Grice's undertaking parlors.

Dr. J.W. Stevenson county health officer, who has been looking after the family reported the case to the county commissioners and asked for assistance.
