LAUER, WILLIAM
Death of William Lauer

For Thirty Years Identified with Idaho's Business Interests

Idaho lost a pioneer and Payette an honored citizen when William Lauer breathed his last at 9:45 Friday morning. Mr. Lauer moved with his family from Portland to Boise Basin in 1870, where for a number of years he was extensively engaged in merchandising, mining and milling. He had been a resident and a hardware merchant of Payette for almost 13 years. Honest and upright in every transaction with his fellowman, William Lauer made no enemies, and leaves as a heritage to his children a name untarnished by any mean act. Those of us who knew him best and knowing his physical infirmities, knew what he had to contend with, and wonder at the willpower, the fortitude, and withal, the phylosophical bearing of the man. During the last years of his life he was a great sufferer, but his home and family circle was his shirne, with him the "holy of holies" that knew him best for all that he aspired to be, a safe counsellor, true husband and affectionate father.

William Lauer had reached the age of 66 years, 3 months and 27 days: He had long been an active and consistent member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and was a Past Grand of Payette, Lodge No. 22. He was buried with the honors of the order, from the lodge room in this city, at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. More than 200 people attended the solemn ceremonies in the hall, and the funeral cortege that followed the remains to their last resting place in Riverside cemetery was one of the largest and most imposing Payette has ever witnessed.

Deceased leaves wife and five children, four sons and a daughter. (Riverside Cemetery)

DRAPER, JESSE F.
DEATH OF AN OLD-TIMER

Jesse F. Draper Drops Dead in His Stable Yard

Jesse F. Draper, familiarly known to all the old-settlers of this valley as "Grandpa" Draper, died suddenly at his home in Washoe, Monday afternoon between four and five o'clock. The old gentleman dropped dead while unhitching his team from the wagon in a shed near his residence. Life was barely extinct when the body was discovered. He had been hauling in potatoes during the day and, though 74 years of age, had in contemplation a deer hunt, that being a customary thing with him every fall. It is thought he overexerted himself and died of heart failure.

Deceased would have been 74 years old had he lived to see the 6th day of the present month. He celebrated his Golden wedding the 30th of last June. He was born near Indianapolis, Ind., emigrated to Missouri, and returned from that state to Idaho 15 years ago, having resided ever since at the old homestead in Washoe. He was the father of ten children, eight of whom, with their aged mother, survive him.

"Grandpa" Draper was a man who had no enemies. He was plain-spoken, but always believed he was right before he expressed an opinion on any subject, and was not quick to recede from that opinion when once expressed. His life was worthy of emulation by his family and friends.

The burial took place Tuesday afternoon at Ontario. Ore.

BATES, THOMAS W.
Death of T. W. Bates

Thomas W. Bates, for a number of years a prominent resident of Payette and one of the best known railroad and mining promoters of Idaho, died Thursday morning, September 4th, at his home in Boise after a long illness with Bright's disease. The deceased had been a sufferer for years and his death was not unexpected as a few weeks ago serious complications had set in and he had been in a very critical condition for some time. Mrs. Bates and the aged mother of the deceased were at his bedside when he died. The other member of the family, his son Walter, was in the Thunder Mountain country. Word was dispatched to him at once and it was expected that he would be able to reach home in time for the funeral which took place yesterday afternoon from the family residence at 6 o'clock.

The deceased was well known throughout Idaho as a railroad promoter. Previous to coming to this state he was connected with railroad construction work in Colorado and other states in the West. He was attracted by the possibilities of the mining interests in Idaho, and removed with his family to Payette about 11 years ago where he resided on his homestead just east of town until several years later when he took up his residence in Boise. He had the greatest faith in the possibilities of the Seven Devils mining region and for several years after coming to Payette spent a great deal of time in the east trying to interest capital in the project of building a railroad from this point into the district. Several times it was thought he had been successful and at two different times grading was actually begun. Afterwards Mr. Bates transferred his promoting operations to Weiser and was active in the organization of the railroad now heading towards the Seven Devils district known as the Pacific and Idaho Northern.

The latest project which Mr. Bates was interested in was the proposed road from Boise to Butte, knowf. as the Idaho Midland. Mr. Bates had carefully canvassed the value of the mines along the proposed route, and had an optimistic faith in the wonderful possibilities to be opened up.

GOLDEN, JAMES B.
Another old pioneer has passed away. Mr. James B. Golden died Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock September 8, 1901,(should be 1902) at his home in Washoe near Payette. The funeral took place from the family residence Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, being conducted by members of the Catholic church. The remains were laid to rest in Riverside cemetery. He lived and died an earnest adherent to the Catholic faith.

The deceased was 60 years of age. He was born in Boston, when quite young was taken to New York state, where he lived until 1863, when he came west to Butte, Mont., where he stayed until 1871. He then went to The Dalles, Ore., where he met and married his wife a Miss Isabella Long. After their marriage they moved to Goldendale, Wash., where they remained for nearly four years. They then returned to Oregon, near Vale where his brother-in-law Mr. N. C. Long resided. From there they came to Payette in 1893, bought them a home in Washoe near that place where he had since engaged in farming and stock raising.

Seven children have been blessed their union, four boys and three girls. There are two grand children, son and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. R. Draper of Vale, Ore.

James Golden was a man who conformed as nearly to the golden rule of doing "unto others as you would have them do unto you" as seems possible for human nature. He was temperate in his habits, quiet and retiring in his life, and was honored and respected by all who knew him. He was a devoted husband, a kind and loving father. He loved and delighted in little children wherever he met them. Their natural grace and innocence appealed to him with unusual strength and seemed a bond between them. His undiscouraged will was patient to the last, bearing his suffering in silence while seeking to comfort and cheer the loved ones about him. (Riverside Cemetery)
