Morning Olympian (Olympia, WA)
September 25, 1908
WRIT IS DENIED IN DAMAGE CASE
A special session of the supreme court was held yesterday to hear the application of J. D. Casey of Seattle, attorney for Jacob Hinsperger who sought a writ of prohibition against the superior court of King county to prevent Judge Griffin granting a change of venue to Kittatas county in the $50,000. damage sut for personal injuries brought by Hinsperger against E R Doe and L G. Palmer. The attorney says that his client is seriously injured and in bed at Providence Hospital in Seattle, but Possibly could be carried in a stretcher to the King County court house to attend trial but cannot make the trip to Kittatas County and that the change of venue will be a great injury and injustice to him. The supreme court denied the writ on the holding that the plaintive has an adequet remedy by appeal.

This doesn't answer the question of exactly how he died but probably by these injuries. This was the only article about this. I tried to find out who Doe & Palmer were but couldn't. The only thing I know is Palmer was involved in the lumber business.
