Fire Cabin To Burn Up Notes

Home of Miner Destroyed to Do Away With Evidence of Indebtedness.

Redding, June 3.—David Kemble’s cabin was burned at Shasta this morning, just eleven hours after its owner’s funeral. Kemble was a wealthy miner, aged 85, who lived alone in his cabin, which was locked up tight when his body was removed for burial. All his valuables and papers, including notes and his will, were left in their places. That the fire was of incendiary origin no one questions, and it is believed that the purpose was to destroy evidence of indebtedness.

The old gentleman was very careful in keeping an account of all transactions, and the heirs would have had no troubled in learning the details had not the cabin been burned opportunely. Among other things destroyed were Kemble’s diaries, which were kept carefully from the year 1852 when he first came to Shasta county.
