C. J. QUINN
The unexpected news of C. J.
Quinn'a death last Sunday morn
ing caused the people of this
county to bow their heads in sor
row for the passing of a man
who for years has been associated
with the building, of the county
and the betterment of conditions
for those who live here; a man
who, as a neighbor and a citizen,
has been esteemed most highly.
He was greatly interested in leg
islation and made a study of it
without prejudice to party prin
ciples and especially was he an
advocate of prohibition.
Charles James Quinn was born
in Montreal province, Canada, in
1848 and came to Gilliam county
in 1883, being one of the first
settlers of the Mayville county.
The funeral services, conducted
by Father Wand, were held in
