"CONE--RED BLUFF LOSES PROMINENT CITIZEN--Douglas A. Cone Dies In San Francisco Where He Went Weeks Ago To Receive Special Surgical Care--RED BLUFF (Tehama Co.), July 17 - Douglas S. CONE, only son of Mrs. Anna R. CONE and the late J.S. CONE, died yesterday morning at 3 o'clock at the Palace Hotel, San Francisco, after a brief illness of typhoid pneumonia. He was 38 years old, and had been a prominent citizen of this county ever since attaining his majority. The funeral arrangements as far as completed are that the body shall be brought to the city to-morrow afternoon by train and that the funeral cortege shall start from the depot to Oakhill Cemetery, where the coffin will be placed in the family mausoleum. The widow was with her husband during his last hours and was present at the deathbed. Douglas Spencer CONE was born at the family home in this county and has always been popular with his associates here and elsewhere. His father, for many years a Railroad Commissioner from this district, was one of Tehama County's foremost citizens and at the time of his death, about ten years ago, he left an estate which was appraised at considerably more than $1,000,000. There were three children, one son, Douglas, and two daughters, Mrs. Edward W. RUNYON of San Francisco, and Mrs. J.D. SHERWOOD of Spokane, Washington. At present Mrs. Anna R. CONE, the widow of the late merchant and stockman, and her daughter, Mrs. RUNYON, are in Paris, France. Mr. and Mrs. SHERWOOD are expected from the north at noon to-day. The CONE estate consisted originally of the magnificent tract of 200,000 acres on the east side of the Sacramento River, just opposite this city, a large block of stock in the general merchandise firm of CONE and KIMBALL, since incorporated, and a substantial share of the capital stock of the Bank of Tehama County. The heirs have united in keeping the greater part of this vast estate under one management and it has been operated under the corporate title of the CONE Ranch Company and other companies. Douglas CONE has resided the greater portion of his lifetime on the home place, a comfortable residence known as the headquarters of the CONE Ranch, where he and his wife, formerly Miss LEWIS, of San Francisco, have dispensed a delightful hospitality. He was very prominent in the social and business life of the community, having been active in many new enterprises and a leader in all movements for the improvement of livestock of all kinds, particularly horses. He was one of the Republican leaders in this county. In 1900 he was a delegate to the Republican National Convention which met at Philadelphia and nominated McKINLEY and ROOSEVELT. For many years he was a Director of the District Agricultural Society for Tehama County and took a leading part in all county and district fairs. He was an active member of Chico Lodge, No. 423, B.P. O.E., and this Order will conduct the funeral services at the grave. Mr. CONE's illness dates from last Winter, when he was thrown from a buggy while returning from a trip to the Navajo Mine and suffered a compound fracture of the right leg. For some unexplained reason, the bones refused to knit and he was compelled to undergo many painful operations. He had been undergoing treatment in Lane Hospital, San Francisco, shortly before his fatal illness, and was still under the surgeon's care when he contracted the disease which caused his death. There will be a general cessation of business at the time of the funeral." Source: The Evening Bee (Sacramento, Cal.), 17 July 1905, Page 6. Transcribed by Betty Loose.

San Francisco, Sept. 2 - Making himself into a human skyrocket, little Diego CONTRERA, 12, of 1309 Montgomery st. was so seriously burned yesterday that he died a few hours later. The boy was playing on Telegraph Hill when he found a pile of skyrockets, firecrackers and other explosives that had been thrown away. With boy-like inquisitiveness, Diego broke the rockets open. The powder and explosive balls that he found inside he stuffed into the front of his trousers, into his shirt pockets and inside his shirt. The lad's mother saw the powder when the boy went home, and commanded him to empty his pockets. The boy refused to give up his 'treasures' and when his mother attempted to take them by force, Diego ran from the house. The friction caused by running and the heat from his body ignited the explosives. In an instant the boy was the center of a terrifying pyrotechnic display, with burning powder and exploding shells all about him." Source: Petaluma Argus Courier, 2 Sept 1929.
