A Lumberman Killed.
Rum River Camp, Minn., March 18.—Lewis White, of the pine region, the terror of Minnesota, and who is generally known as Curly Bill, was instantly killed yesterday by Charles E. Hayden. The latter received a cabinet photograph of his wife and two children, and the loggers gathered about him to look at it. White attached the woman's character, and a violent quarrel ensued, ending in a rough and tumble fight, in which Hayden came off victor. White then went to his room, secured an ax and rushed at Hayden, who calmly drew his revolver and shot the bully through the heart. Hayden was placed under arrest. He came here from Augusta, Me. White hails from Muskeegon, Mich.
