George Cooper Assassinated Near Cottonwood, Idaho County – The Assassin Supposed to Be a Rival for a Young Woman’s Affections

A special from Cottonwood says:  George Cooper, a well-to-do lumberman, while riding with a young lady nine miles from here, was shot in the back by some person concealed in the brush on the side of the road.  Cooper and another man were rivals for the affections of the young lady and the assassination is said to be on that account though the murderer has not been arrested.
