Bontecou is Dead

Philip D. BONTECOU, the station agent at Hanna, who was shot Friday afternoon at Medicine Bow by Louis HAHN, died at 5:30 o'clock Sunday morning. He sank steadily from the time that he was wounded. HAHN has been placed under arrest and Sunday night was reported to be in jail at Carbon. Although he declares that the shooting was accidental, BONTECOU made a contrary statement upon his death bed. He declared that HAHN meant to kill him.
