JULY 27, 1905


Five Shots Exchanged by Two Combatants.

A very unfortunate affair occurred in Warren last Monday night about one o’clock, in which Fred Morris was shot and killed by Jack Young.

The trouble arose over a woman with whom Morris was living.  Young and a number of men were sitting in Sid Robbin’s saloon when the woman came in and motioned Young to come out.  They went to the room over the saloon and were making out a deed to some property when Morris entered and drew his revolver and compelled the two to walk down to the street.  Young went into the saloon and the woman went away with Morris.  Later in the night Morris returned to the saloon and found Young standing at the bar with a friend.  He went up to him and started to draw his gun, whereupon Young drew his revolver and killed Morris.

Fred Morris is the son of Mrs. W.J. Kelly, and nephew of George and William Patterson.  Jack Young came to the camp about two months ago from Pocatello, Idaho.  Morris has been married twice and leaves his mother and a 12 year old son.

  Young went to Grangeville to surrender himself to the authorities.
