Marin County Tocsin
Saturday, February 2, 1901
The news arrived in Marin County that James Elwell, formerly a conductor on the California Northwestern Railroad, had committed suicide in Dawson recently. Two years ago, Mr. Elwell gave up his position on the railroad to seek his fortune in the Klondike. The information of his death has caused the deepest regret all along the line of the road and the tenderest sympathy is extended to his bereaved relatives.
