Robert Carr Found Dead in Cabin Near Florence


Will Make Investigation of Cause of Death and Bring Body Out to Grangeville


                Word was received by S.A. Anderson of the Masonic Lodge last Saturday to the effect that Robert Carr, an old time miner of the Central Idaho section, had been found dead in his cabin , located in an isolated section of the old Florence mining camp.  The body was found by Harry Hinkson, a neighboring prospector who had gone to visit with Carr.  Immediately upon the discovery Hinkson retraced his steps, imparted the information to a number of neighbors, the party later returning and viewing the remains.  A message was sent out to Riggins and the information wired in from there. 

                Immediately upon receipt of the news Atty. Hattabaugh and Sheriff Eimers were informed and Deputy Webb was sent in to make an investigation and bring the remains out as it is the desire of his relatives that the body be buried at Dayton, Wn., his old home.

                The trip is one filled with hardships this time of year it being necessary to cross the divide in going to the spot where the body was found and ten miles will have to be made on snow shoes.  No details have been learned and it will be several days before the return of Webb.
