Charles Tliomason Slain While Hunt
Ing Deer Out of Season at Head of
Anderson Creek Evidently Mis
taken for a Deer by Unknown
Hunter Fcund Dead by Father.
Tho body ot Charlc Tliomason,
victim of a niystorlous shooting on
tho north fork of Anderson crook,
Thursday afternoon, between thrco
and four o'clock, was brought to tho
city this morning by Coronor John A.
Perl. With it camo tho grlof strick
en aged father, and a number of wit
nesses, who will testify at the hearing
to Imj held this afternoon.
Developments today In tho cvldonro
left not a shred ot doubt, but that
Tliomason was killed by an unknown
hunter who mistook him for a deer
and who like himself was shooting
doer out of season. Tho courso of
the bullet, and tho unburned cloth
ing, that would have naturally fol
lowed tho accidental dUchnrgo of his
own gun, at close range, dispel this
theory advanced by tho sheriff's of
fice Thursday night.
Ifcxly l'ountl Hy Father
According to tho story ot tho fath
er, X. S. Thomason, tho dead man left
their cabin In mid afternoon In search
ot deer. It was agreed that at a
whlstlo the father should conio and
help bring In the results of tho hunt.
In a half or three-quarters of an
hour, the father beard four shots.
Two of them were together. Follow
ing theso there was a prolonged
whlstlo, tho agreed signal, and the
father started towards tho sound. En
routo he heard another shot, fol
lowed bya series of whistles that lead
him to the spot. After an Interval ho
heard the last of the four shots, and
probably the ono that killed his boy.
About CO rods from the family
cabin, the body ot tho son was found,
and 50 feet away, down the hillside,
lay tho two deer, ono a fawn and
dressed, and the other a buck. Doth
were fixed to carry. Llfo was ex
tinct when tho father arrived.
Theory of SliootliiR
Tho strongest supposition now ad
vanced Is that Thomason after killing
tho two deer made his way towards
his cabin, his shots attracting tho at
tention of another hunter out on tho
sanio illegal mission, who followed
In his wake, hoping to get a shot at
tho flushed gamo, or at a fleeing
wounded deer if Thomason' shots
had failed to bo otfcctlvo. Thomason
In tho moantlmo proceeded towards
bis cabin with his meat, and when
near home stopped to dress tho deer,
and gavo tho call to his aged par
ent. While thus engaged, It Is ad
vanced, tho unknown hunter, canto
upon him at a dlstanco, and mistak
ing him for a deer fired the third
shot heard by the father. Thomason,
then, realizing his danger Is porsumed
to havo sought safety from tho open
spot whero ho was engaged, and
moved back towards protection. Tho
fourth shot of tho unknown slayer
proved fatal, tho bullet striking
Thomuson In tho right shoulder and
ranging downward through (ho lungs
ami Intestines. The. courso ot thu
