Harvard--the death of C.L. Kinman at Long Beach, California, on the evening of March 25th marks the passing of another of our early pioneers who with their families left their quiet homes in the east and middle west, crossing the danger-infested plains and mountain vastnesses to assist in laying the corner stone for the foundation of our great Northwest as it stands today.

Cyrus L. Kinman was born in Pike county, Illinois, August 31, 1839 and there grew to manhood and was married in 1861 to Miss Virginia Smith. At the outbreak of the Civil war Mr. Kinman enlisted in the 115th Illinois volunteers and served throughout the war, holding the rank of Captain. His father being Colonel of the same regiment, giving his life for his country on the bloody field at Chicamauga. At the close of the war Captain Kinman returned to his home in Illinois where he remained until the early 70's when accompanied by his family, they came to the Northwest, locating in what is now Latah county, Idaho, near Kennedy Ford where they resided until 1885 when they came to the upper Palouse, remaining in our midst until about ten years ago, when Mr. and Mrs. Kinman leased their farm, one and one-half miles east of Harvard to their sons, and moved to Long Beach to spend their declining years beneath the sunny southern skies. On Monday, March 21st in response to a telegram that their father was failing, Mrs. A.E. Dailey, G.H. and C.R. Kinman accompanied by their brother Fred Kinman of Princeton left for south, arriving at their father's bedside a few hours before the end. The remains were laid at rest in the cemetery at Long Beach on the following Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Kinman was a man well liked by all--honest and square with his fellowman, he won the esteem of all whom he met. He is survived by his wife who had been his faithful helpmate for three score years; two daughters, Mrs. Nellie Sherman of Long Beach, and Mrs. Maude Dailey of Harvard and four sons, Gus H. and Claude R. of Harvard; Fred Y. of Princeton and Alfred of Arlington, Wash., besides a host of friends, both here and at Long Beach who mourn his decease.

May our fertile fields with their rich harvest of golden grain, our flourishing cities and modern homes stand ever as monuments to the courage and valor of men like Mr. Kinman, those uncrowned kings of other days, "The Pioneers."


What is evidently a garbled report of a fatal accident at Woodland, Idaho, Wednesday, reached the Lewiston Tribune and is published in this morning's issue of that paper. It follows:

"Word was received in this city yesterday of a sad accident which befell J.C. McClintic, at Woodland, Idaho county, Wednesday, and which resulted in his death.

"According to the report received here by his brother-in-law, A.O. Martin, 103 Prospect avenue, Mr. McClintic was passing through a saw mill at Woodland, when he accidentally fell onto a saw while it was in operation. His left hand was cut off, and the thumb from his right hand was severed. The accident happened about 2 o'clock and he died at 5 o'clock from the loss of blood.

"Mr. Martin and Mrs. Mary Imbler, the mother of the unfortunate man, left yesterday for the scene of the accident.

"The deceased leaves besides his mother, Mrs. Imbler, and sister, Mrs. A.O. Martin of this city, two sons, Archie and Leonard McClintic, of Woodland and a married daughter in Spokane. He was well known in this locality, being the son of Silas Imbler, one of the pioneers of the Moscow section.

"Funeral arrangements have been deferred until it is learned when the relatives will arrive here."

How Mr. McClintic could be the son of Silas Imbler, well known pioneer of this district and well known to Latah county pioneers, is not understood. He was evidently a step-son, as the report speaks of his mother, Mrs. Imbler, surviving him. He is not known here but the Imbler family is well known to many Latah county citizens.

Grangeville--Successfully carrying out a suicide pact, Mrs. Thomas Stevens, 50, and her daughter, Mrs. Gray Hasley, 26, were found dead last Saturday evening [April 16] at the Stevens ranch, five miles east of Forest. The bodies were discovered by Thomas Stevens, husband and father of the two women, respectively. They had taken strychnine.

No motive has been assigned to the double suicide. The younger woman had been confined to the state asylum for insane at Orofino, and left the institution about six weeks ago. The mother's sanity had not been questioned, it is said.
