FUNERAL SERVICE HELD FOR SLAIN CATTLEMEN

Funeral services were held last Thursday in Blanding for W.E. Oliver and Norris Shumway (his grandson) who were slain at Johns Canyon a week before in a controversy over range rights.
Friends and relatives of the deceased men from far and near packed the hall of the L.D.S church, of which both were members. Church officials and District Attorney F.W. Keller spoke feelingly of the characters of the deceased and comforted the bereaved relatives in their loss.
W.E. Oliver was a native of Utah, having been born at Santaquin 77 years ago. He had been a resident of Blanding for 24 years. Mr. Oliver had spent his life in the cattle business.
He is survived by his widow, Mary Jane Mills Oliver, whom he married at Fairview, Utah, March 2, 1878 and seven children, William H. Oliver, Shola (sic), Ariz.; Mrs. Mary Ann Fuller and Mrs. Alvira Norman, Garfield; Mrs. Norah Huffman, Lockerby; Mrs. Alice Shumway, Moab; Mrs. Adelaide Black and Charles Harrison Oliver, Blanding.. Sixty-three grandchildren and 53 great-grandchildren also survive.
Norris Shumway was born in Liberty N.M., and came to Blanding with his parents, Sixtus and Alice Shumway, when he was only a month old, where they made their home until about a year ago when they moved to Moab. He was 24 years of age.
Interment was not made until Friday due to absent relatives who were on their way from southern Arizona.
