Article from Donna Williams:

Killed by Whisky.(sic)
Benton Record.

George Converse, better known about town as "Sunday", died today at noon in Tierney's saloon. Those who saw him sitting half asleep on a bench in the room supposed that he was only drunk - as usual - until his gasps and groans showed him to be a dying man. Before the doctor could be summoned he had breathed his last. Converse was habitually drunk and had been discharged on that account from the Second Calvary at Assinaboine. He had been lately an inmate of the poorhouse. Every cent he could earn, beg or borrow went for the whisky which caused his death. He had literally burned out his stomach with the quantities of the vile stuff he had drunk.
