RUMPEL, Victor - HE DIED IN HIS CHAIR -- Victor Rumpel Found Dead in a Main Street Resort -- THOUGHT TO BE ASLEEP -- Men Walk in and Out Past Him for Hours Without Realizing That the Grim Messenger Is in Their Midst.
Victor Rumple, an inmate of the soldiers home, died in the Chicago Liquor House some time Saturday night or Sunday morning. The case is a peculiar one, in that the man sat dead at a table for hours without the fact of his having passed from life being discovered. He was sitting with his head on his hands as though asleep, his hat lying by his head. Men had been passing in and out all yesterday morning. At one time some of the people from the home started to wake him, but it was suggested that he be permitted to sleep a little longer.
Finally, at 11 o'clock, some one standing looking at him remarked to the man in charge, "That man is dead." Sure enough, he was.
Last Tuesday deceased secured permission from Superintendent McGinty to visit Nampa, and the superintendent supposed he was down there. He had, however, been about town, and most of the time was in the saloon, drinking some but not heavily. He was in the chair where ho died on Saturday evening. In the morning he was still there, his head resting on his hands. During the interval he died. There was always some one about; the poor fellow died without attracting the attention of those who must have been within a few feet of him, and for hours men walked by his chair without noticing that the place had been visited by the dark messenger. Coroner Springer was called in and turned the case over to Justice of the Peace Siggins.
A jury was impaneled The jurymen viewed the remains,after which the body was removed, the inquest being adjourned until today. Tho cause of death is supposed to have been heart failure, the old man having complained of heart trouble. Deceased had a good war record, having served three years and four months as a member of the Sixteenth Indiana battery. He was 62 years of age and was a native of Switzerland. Deceased had but one leg, walking on a wooden stump. [Idaho Statesman 1897/03/29 - Submitted by Source #82]
