    HUNTER FALLS TO DEATH FROM HIGH CLIFF

    In the account of the death of James R. WILSON as appears in the Sonora Democrat last week, death was not caused by heart failure but from a fall over a high cliff while hunting in a blinding storm.
    The Democrat gives the following account of the accident:
    James R. WILSON, a native of this county, aged 45 years, fell to his death from a precipitous bluff in the Lake Elinor country last Sunday.
    Last Saturday he and his brother, Wm. H. WILSON, left Groveland on a deer hunting trip into Cherry Valley, where they made camp. Sunday morning he went hunting and about 10 o'clock a shot was heard by his brother. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon an electrical storm, accompanied by a heavy fall of rain and hail, prevailed.
    WILSON did not return to camp that night, but that fact did not disturb his brother, who was impressed that he had hunted afar and undoubtedly had found lodgings in some old Hetch Hetchy camp. When he did not show up by noon the next day the brother became uneasy and got word to his brother in law, John MEYER of Groveland, who immediately spread the news, and with a large party of searchers started for the Cherry Valley. The searchers were organized into groups and a systematic hunt was made for the missing man. It was carried on Monday and Tuesday unceasingly between daylight and dark without result. By this time the searchers were convinced that WILSON was ill, injured or dead. The search had been largely made in a section remote from camp. Wednesday morning the 40 men engaged resumed the search. Shortly after leaving the camp, one of the parties, headed by Chas. H. BAIRD and Rico CASSARETTO, noticed an peculiar odor in the air which as they advanced, became more pronounced and they readily conceived it to be that arising from decaying human flesh. They followed the odor and within half a mile of the camp found the dead body of WILSON prostrated upon a sand flat at the bottom of a rocky bluff 40 feet in height. His rifle was leaning against the rocky wall as though he had placed it there while resting. An empty cartridge was in the barrel, indicating that a shot had been fired. An investigation indicated that WILSON had fallen from the crest of the bluff. Assuming that he had fired the shot about 10 o'clock Sunday morning, it must have been a deer, in which event he would of thrown a loaded cartridge from the magazine into the chamber. An examination of the rifle revealed a rocky substance on the hammer showing that it had contacted with a rock and the cartridge had thus exploded. Wilson body bore no bullet wounds. But one side of his face and skull were crushed in, clearly from striking a rock in his downward flight it is surmised that he walked on the bluff at about 2 o'clock when the severe electrical storm, accompanied by a heavy fall of rain and hail, took place across a wide sweep of country in that region. It is assumed that at this time WILSON was hunting on the bluff, a likely place for deer, when the storm broke in all its fury. Pulling his hat tightly down over his head, he started hurriedly for camp, and in the blinding lightning flashes and beating rain and hail, he stepped off the bluff in probably the most unsafe and dangerous spot it presented. In the next instant his body went hurtling down the cliff to the bottom. Instant death must have been his portion.
