DUFFY, James C.

James Duffy Dead.
Mr. Patrick Duffy, of Ocean, was advised yesterday of the death of his brother James C. of Granite,  Montana , who was fatally shot by Michael Lonergan. Jan 8. The following is from the Butte “Miner’ of subsequent date:
“Philipsburg. Jan. 8.—James C. Duffy, of Granite, Deputy State Game Warden and formerly representative from Granite Co., was fatally shot in this city at 3:20 o’clock this afternoon by Michael Lonergan, a miner in the employ of the Granite Bimetallic Consolidated Mining Company.  The shooting occurred just outside the door of the post office during the crowded portion of the day.  Lonergan was standing outside the door and fired the fatal shot without warning as Duffy approached.  The ball penetrated the brain over the left eye causing death at 6:30 in the evening. Although there were a number of witnesses, no definite information can be obtained concerning the cause of the shooting. Many conflicting reports are current. Indications point very strongly to a premeditated act on the part of Lonegran, who had been drinking heavily for a number of days past.  The claim is made that the two men had seriously disagreed recently and that Lonergan had made threatening remarks regarding Duffy. Also that he had purchased the weapon with which the shot was fired from a local dealer. Lonergan did not resist arrest and was placed in the county jail to await hearing. Duffy was forty nine years of age He was born in the County Donegal, Ireland, in 1876 and came to Philipsburg twenty-four years ago. For many years he was secretary of the Granite County Miner’s Union and in 1911 and 1912 represented Granite County in the State Legislature, since which he has served as Deputy Game Warden in this section. His death is a shock to the community because of his prominence in Philipsburg and throughout the entire State.”
