Judge L. W. Brown Dead - Prominent Western Citizen Passed Away at His Home in this City Yesterday.

Friends of the grief stricken family in this city deeply sympathize with the bereaved while hundreds of friends throughout the western states will be saddened and feel a personal loss in the death of Ex-Judge L. W. Brown which occurred at his residence 118 Tate Street in the city at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon after a lingering illness he being invalid for four years. While his death was not unexpected it comes as a great shock to many relatives and friends. Judge Brown's condition began to grow  worse Sunday night and never changed for the better.  All that skilled physicians and loving and tender hands could do as done to restore him to health again but to no avail.  Judge Brown and family moved to this city just one month ago yesterday from Winston-Salem where they had made their resident for two years having moved there from Toledo, Oho. They moved south in the interest of Judge Brown's health. While they have been residents of Greensboro only a short time they have made many friends who deeply sympathize with them in the death of husband and father. Judge Brown played a very important part in politics in the western states and was held in the highest esteem for his personal and political integrity and statesmanship.  He was the American consul to Glasgow, Scotland under President Harrison and his record there was a splendid one. He was for a number of years Probate Judge in his home sate. He was permanent chairman of the Kansas City convention which nominated Bryan for president in 1900.  He is survived by a wife, five sons and two daughters. The sons are: Messrs.  Chas. M. of Cleveland, Ohio; Geo. C. of Wauseon, Ohio; Maynard D. of Clyde, Ohio; Albert M. of St. Louis, Mo.; Walter C. of this city. The daughters Misses Wilma and Ruth of this city. Mr. Maynard Brown arrived last night to attend the funeral. The other sons will not come as they cannot arrive in time for the funeral services. The funeral services will be conducted from the residence at 4 o'clock this afternoon by Rev. Dr. G. H. Detwiler, pastor of West Market Street Methodist church. The remains will be interred in the Green Hill cemetery by the Blue Lodge of Masons, the Knights Templar acting as escort. Judge Brown was a member of the Knights Templar for thirty years.
