|Jack Chambers, James Long and Mike Nevens attended a
dance on Christmas night and about 11:30 went to the saloon owned by E.
church and found it locked, but saw Church sitting in the back
part. They shook the door and said they wanted to come in but
Church told them he had closed up and would no open again that
night. Long then started home, but Chambers and Nevens continued
to shake the door. Church finally started for the door and the men
thinking he might have a club, stepped back when he opened the door and
fire the ball passing through Chamber's heart, killing him
DeGrundy started the next morning for Grangeville to inform them of
what had happened Church is a cripple and the deep snow will make it
practically impossible for him to escape if he tried. He is quite
well known in this part of the state and was at one time located
at Lewiston where he furnished music for saloons and public gatherings.
