Wellsville Man Meets Death In Hotel At California, Pa.

James Kane, aged 63, engaged by a Greencastle, Ind., firm in placing machinery, was asphyxiated in the Hotel Arlington at California, Pa., Saturday night ( Nov. 3, 1906). Deceased had made his home in Wellsville for some time, the family living in Center street.

When an investigation was made of the room in which he was found, it was noticed that while the gas in the small stove was burning much of it escaped from the burner.

Kane left Wellsville Friday morning, going directly to California where he was to do some work for the Greencastle firm.

He is survived by his wife, three daughters, Mrs. S. J. Hamilton, of East Liverpool; Mrs. George Cunningham and Miss Mame of Wellsville, and one son, Robert of Wellsville.

The body was brought to Wellsville last evening and this morning will be taken to Parkersburg, his former home, for burial. Services will be held tomorrow morning at St. Xaviers church, of which deceased was a member.
