Victim for Salmon

On Sunday morning, June 12, Stanely Mitchell was drowned in the South Fork of Salmon river.  The young man was a Cornishman twenty one years old and had recently taken out naturalization papers.  He was stopping at the ranch of C.F. Smith, preparatory to working on the foresterís trail.  He was well and favorably known in and around Warren camp and had proven himself to be honest and reliable.  His body has not yet been recovered and it is feared that it has been swept into the main Salmon, though the searchers are yet at work.

The Golden Rule Placer Co. and Herbert Thorpe of Secesh Placer property ceased operations for a day in order to allow the water to become clear in the hope that the body could be seen if lying in the hole where it went down.
