Harris, Thomas L.,              5-22-1942

“Thomas Lafayette Harris, 92, pioneer of the Four Lakes country 16 miles southwest of Spokane and Cheney, but for many years past residing in Spokane, died Sunday night, May 17.  The only surviving one of his six sons, Thomas, accompanied by his wife had spent a part of Sunday visiting his parents, and had only just returned to their home at Wenatchee when word came that his father had died sometime during Sunday night. In passing through Harrington on their way back to Spokane Monday forenoon, ‘Tom’ stopped here a few minutes and stepped into the Citizen office, asking: ‘Do you know where I can find ‘Herm’ Bassett?’  Although 55 years had elapsed since we had seen Tom, his face still bore the Harris stamp, and the answer to his question stood before him. The passing of ‘Lafe’ Harris, possibly removes to the Great Beyond next to the last pioneer barring two or three who lived concurrently with this editor’s parents ‘down on the farm’.  Mrs. Harris, Lafe’s wife, and Dr Wells of Cheney, and Mrs. Lizzie Haldeman Forker ( Pullman) are still remnants of those days who survive. There still remains, however, many an ear in the Inland Empire , that has listened to the strains of Lafe Harris’ tuneful violin—the first musical instrument this writer, as a small boy, ever heard. A pang of sadness grips the heart at losing Dear Old Lafe. Though never rich in worldly goods, as was the lot of many of the pioneers who braved the hardships and reared large families in the Inland Empire, he was a gold mine of music to his friends when he would tune up that grand old violin, with the finely carved lion’s head as the scroll at the end of the strings and peg box and tightened up the bow. He could play all night and never repeat a tune. Once he heard a new tune it was recorded in his brain as accurately as though it had been transferred to a phonograph record. In his younger days his services were in demand far and wide as a ballroom musician. We attribute his longevity to plenty of substantial food without the gewgaws of fancy pastry, to music which drove out time for worry, and the fathering of a family of ten children, one son Thomas and three daughters of them surviving. His wife, Eunice, now 88, also survives him.  We shall never forget the strains of the ‘Twenty-third Infantry’ march which he always played as grand marches at those early day grand balls. No other march to us is so stirring, so individualistic, and so fine to put pep into a march step.” (Citizen: 5-22-1942)

“Tom Hayes of Spokane, a former old-timer in this region, was in Harrington a short time last week, gathering up some of the possessions of his son, Dr  W. J. Hayes, who was killed in a mine accident recently. While here he explained the cause of his son’s death. It seems that ‘Doc’ was just going on shift in the mine and he and a companion were approaching the cage. ‘I guess its full and we will have to wait for the next trip,’ he said; One of the men on the cage replied, ‘No, there is room enough for one more. Come on.’  Doc said, ‘all right,’ and as he leaped for the cage he pulled the signal rope. Like a flash the cage began dropping and caught Doc in a small space between the shaft wall and the cage. He was carried 40 feet before the cage was stopped. He was taken out and brought to the hospital. ‘My son did not lose consciousness,’ said Mr. Hayes, ‘but the bones of his pelvis were terribly crushed. He joked with the fellows, said he wasn’t hurt much and would soon be back with them, but he died two hours later. Evidently the nerves of his body were too badly paralyzed for him to feel anything.”  (Citizen: 10-02-1925) “Word reached here Monday that Dr W. J. Hayes, age 33, formerly a veterinarian here, was killed in a mine accident last Friday at Burke, Idaho. Details of the accident were not stated.
