ARIZONA SILVER BELT

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 4, 1916

FORMERLY A PRINTER IN THE EMPLOY OF THE SILVER BELT

-BODY FOUND AT CASA LOMA ROOMING HOUSE.

CAUSE OF DEATH NOT YET ASCERTAINED BUT HE HAD BEEN COMPLAINING OF HEART TROUBLE FOR MANY WEEKS.

Robert Creamer, a printer, formerly in the employ of the Daily Silver Belt was found dead this afternoon at about 1:30 o'clock.

The cause of death has not been ascertained, as no inquest has yet been held though friends say he had been complaining of heart trouble for several weeks past.

G. C. Jones, a miner in the employ of the Inspiration company was probably the last person to speak to Creamer before he died.  Jones states that he was talking to Creamer just before he retired last night at the Casa Loma rooming house where both were staying and the Creamer seemed to be in good spirits.

This afternoon when the landlady wondering at his non-appearance, looked through the window of his room she saw Creamer lying fully appareled across the bed.  Investigations were made immediately and it was ascertained that he was no longer living.

He had taken off his shoes and as he reclined on the bed was partly covered by a quilt.

Little is know of Creamer or his family except that he is originally from New York.  He is a member of the printers typographical union in good standing and will be buried under the auspices of that organization.  A meeting of the printers of the district will be held tomorrow to make arrangements for the funeral.

An identification card found in his pocket by Justice of the peace McEachren requested that Mrs. Bessie Edwards of 81 Pleasant St., Boston, Mass., be notified in the event of his death or serious incident She is supposed to be Creamer's sister.
