Captain F. J. Call died at 8 o'clock last evening in his rooms at the Hotel Colby, 
finally forced to give up a long struggle with Bright's disease. For the past month 
or more he had been confined to his rooms by the effects of the disease, and during 
that time had been gradually sinking. He displayed great vitality and lived much 
longer than the most sanguine of his friends had hoped for. Since Wednesday he was 
unconscious, and had lived since a short time before that without nourishment being 
unable to swallow. Under such circumstance he gradually slipped away, suffring no 
pain during the last few days. The funeral services take place tomorrow afternoon at 
2:30 o'clock from the Hotel Colby under the auspices of the G.A.R. John Buford post 
and the Ladies of the G.A.R. will attend in a body, Company K will also attend. 
Unless other directions are received from Mrs. Call, who is now in Bismark N.D. 
having returned there from Everett a short time ago, the body will be buried in 
Everett.

Captain Call was born in Eden, Erie County, NY on the 15th day of February, 1844, and
later moved to Ohio with his parents, where he received a common school education. 
At the breaking out of the rebellion he enlisted at Elyria, Ohio, in Company K, 
Twenty third regiment Ohio Volunteer Miltia, and mustered into the service of the 
United States at Camp Chase the 11th day of June 1861, and served about one year when
he was discharged on account of sickness and disability incurred in the army. For 
nearly two years he was not in the service as a soldier, but was in different 
capacities connect with the hospitals as nurse and steward. He again enlisted in the 
One Hundred and Fifty Ohio Volunteer Militia, and in Company K in the month of April 
or May, 1864,and was discharged from the same the latter part of August, 1864. He was
again enrolled and commissioned as Second Lieutenant in the Fifth United States 
colored troops, on the fifth day of September, 1864, and promoted to first 
Lieutenant, while in front of Richmond on the Varnia road near Chapin's farm. He was 
honorable discharged from the service on the sixth day of October, 1865. 

After the war he attended college at Oberline, Ohio, and taught school for one or 
two terms. He later moved to Chicago where he married. After his marriage he moved 
to Bismarck, North Dakota, where he accumulated a fortune, but reverses came and 
swept it all away. Fourteen years ago he came West to try to recover some of this 
world's goods. He had been a resident of Everett for more than twelve years and in 
that time had endeared himself to the hearts of all who came in contact with him. For
a time he was local agent for the Canadian Pacific railroad. He also held a number of
responsible public positions and was well known not only in Everett, but throughout 
the western part of the state. He did considerable newspaper and magazine writing.   

He leaves a widow, Mrs. Nellie L. Call, and son Grant R., at Bismarck, N.D, a 
daughter Katharine, in New York city, and Harry L., at Min.,Mn., a brother, William 
H. Call, at Peabody, Ks, and a sister, Mrs. Helen M. Everett, in Minn. Mn.

ABERDEEN, May 23- Last night Charles Carlson hanged himself at the Northwestern 
dock in Hoquiam. Carlson was a married man, with a wife somewhere in Sweden. A 
money order to Sweden, and 30 cents in cash, were all that was found in his pocket. 
From other sources it was ascertained that he owned some property around Seattle and 
Tacoma. Several persons noticed him on the river bank the morning previous, and 
supposed he had been sitting there ever since, up to the time he took his life. 
Carlson was well dressed, and apparently about 40 years of age. It is said he 
committed some offense in 1895, the nature of which could not be learned, and that 
constant brooding over it unbalanced his mind and let to his suicide. The body will 
be looked after by the county authorties.

James Cathcart, one of the pioneer residents of Snohomish, died at a Seattle 
hospital late yeterday, after a short illness. One of his feet was burned 
serveral days ago on a hot water bottle, and blood poisoning developed. Mr. 
Cathcart was 64 years of age. Two sons survive him, Mrs. Cathcart and their 
daughter Lizzie, having died several years ago. Mr. Cathcart was prominent in 
Snohomish county politics for several years in the 80's and 90's, but about 
ten years ago retired to his farm at Cathcart, a station on the Northern Pacific 
named after him.

Mr. Cathcart was born in Ireland, coming to the US at the age of 19 years. When 
he first came out to Washington there was no railroad and he walked 40 miles 
from Ft. Benton to Wallulu junction. When he came to the Sound country, about 
forty years ago, his only capital consisted of a rugged constitution and a 
determination to succeed. He was for several years employed in logging camps, 
and in 1872, having saved several hundred dollars of his wages, he built the 
Exchange Hotel at Snohomish, in acompany with J. Brem. This venture was the 
foundation for a large fotune, a portion of which he lost during the dark days 
of 1893-97. He saved his farm and some of his timber holdings out of the wreck, 
and at the time of his death was in independent circumstances. He was county 
treasurer for two terms, a member of the Snohomish city council, and for several 
years conducted a large general merchandise business in the building erected by 
the Atheneum association, which he purchased when that organization ceased to 
exist. The remains will be brought to Snohomish for burial.

It was with regret that the students and faculty of the Index High School 
announce the death of Mrs. Lew Clark last Wednesday evening. We are sure that 
the smile she wore and the words of encouragement she spoke made the load just 
a little lighter and life a little brighter. It might well be said of her as was 
said of a woman of old. "She hath done what she could do"..

Frank A. Clark, a pioneer of Everett, died last night at 10 o'clock in Morgan, 
Utah. Telegraphic advices were received in Everett late last night by members of 
the family apprising them that death had resulted suddenly from pneumonia. Mr. 
Clark went from Salt Lake City to Morgan, a few miles distant, to spend 
Christmas day with friends. He caught a cold, which rapidly developed into 
pneumonia and death quickly followed. Frank A. Clark came to Everett with his 
brother John J. Clark about 24 years ago, engaging in the clothing business with 
his relative. Always active in republican politics in Snohomish county, each 
successive city committee usually had his name on the list. F.A. Clark, better 
known to intimate friends as "Alex", was a well known citizen of Everett and had 
a host of friends and well wishers here and in Western Washington. A few years 
ago he removed from Everett to Utah, where he has been identified with the oil 
development of that region. Under the administration of Gov. Albert E. Mead, 
F.A. Clark served as state oil inspector. The deceased was 66 years old. He is 
survived by a daughter, Mrs. Robert Mulvihill, and a brother John J. Clark, both 
of Everett, and a son Perry Clark of Bluff, Utah.

Hale and hearty, J. J. Clark, a real pioneer of Everett, celebrated his 76th birthday
anniversary yesterday. He was here before Everett really arrived, and has been 
closely identified with the city' progress from the time the first surveys were run. 
He came to Everett in 1891, and for 23 years had been an optimist among the most 
optimistic in regards to the certainty of the city's future. Much that he foresaw 
years ago has been realized, but the progress toward that ultimate Everett he has 
long cherished is still in the making, but each year brings the community a bit 
nearer the vision seen by Clark years ago, and he is content. 

"This is my 76th birthday", he stated yesterday. "I have been in active business on 
my own account for 58 years and never lost a day from my office. On applying to 
enlist in the United States army in 1861 for the North, I was turned down by the 
medical department at Fort Porter, Buffalo, for physical inability and advised to 
take lessons in physical culture to increase heart and long power Since then I have 
followed directions and have consequently never been sick and have retained full 
strength during my business career though I have been subjected to the trial test of 
several financial reverses. I have never been down by defeat or over-elated with 
success, but have kept pushing along, realizing that the world has no use for losers. 

"I first visited Everett in January, 1891, and saw a future for the city as the 
greatest center for lumbering and its co-industries in the world. Today I have 
witnessed developments in confirmation of my original impression. Our great present 
hope is that we will be blessed with city official servants that are honest in the 
interests of the people so that we older pioneers may finally see the full 
realization of our fond anticipations."

Mrs. C.L. Clemans died at her home on Ave. C, this city, last Friday afternoon 
after an illness of but two weeks. The announcement of the above facts startled 
and deeply grieved a large circle of friends and acquaintances in the city, for 
but few knew of her sickness at all. She had been troubled for some time with a 
severe cold, but did not take to her bed until about two weeks ago when typhoid 
fever set in, and she grew rapidly worse until Friday afternoon, death claimed 
her as his victim.  

Alberta Merritt was born in Woodland, California, Sept. 25, 1871, and practically 
spent her whole life there. From 1892 to '96 she attended Stanford University where 
she met her husband, and from which institution she graduated in 1895. In November 
1896 she was married to Carl Lane Clemans and immediately came to Snohomish to make 
her home, where Mr. Clemans, in company with C.W. Gorham, was editing the Tribune. 
Two sons were born to the happy couple, the youngest but eight months of age, both 
of whom survive her. 

Mrs. Clemans was a devoted wife and mother. Not given much to the pleasure of society
she loved her home and her family, and to her it was the world. Yet she had a host 
of warm friends in the city to whom she was very dear, and who will greatly miss her.
During her sickness she was tenderly cared for by her sister-in-law, Mrs. Hugh 
Clemans, of Manchester, Ia., and the Monday before her death her mother, Mrs. A. A. 
Merritt, arrived from Woodland, Cal. Short funeral services were held at the home 
Saturday afternoon, Revs. Winchester and Fahs officiating, and the bereaved husband, 
with the children, her mother and Mrs. Hugh Clemans life with the body for Woodland, 
Cal., where interment will be made. The bereaved husband has the sympathy of the 
entire community, in his sad bereavement and irreparable loss.

YOUNG COLMAN'S BODY FOUND
The body of Ed U. Colman, a railroad brakeman who was drowned in the Sultan 
river on the 14th of February, 1898, was found Thursday morning by M.F.Peake 
embedded in a sand bar on the north bank of the Skykomish river opposite the 
mouth of Elwell creek, about two miles west of town. Mr. Peake was preparing to 
take some suppies across the river to the camp when he noticed the knee cap of a man 
above the surface of the mud. He at once supposed that the body of the unfortunate 
Colson might be there and proceeded to investigate. Upon throwing up a few shovel 
fulls of sand the vest was moved and a watch fell from the pocket. No further 
excavation was made and leaving several men in charge, Mr. Peake went to town to 
notify the railroad authorities and the coroner. The watch was brought along which 
proves the identity of the body.

Sunday afternoon a number of the shingle men and woodsmen in and about Getchell
congregated in Miles Crowley's saloon. Some of them become inebriated and 
engaged in various misunderstandings, some of small, others of more inportance. 
Con Kelley says he was one of the participants in one of these rows. He says 
that both he and his antagonist were quite drunk and the dispute was something 
about a foot race or a jumping match. Crowley came to the men and held Kelley, 
probably intending to break up the row. Frank Cramer then came up and told 
Crowley to let Kelley go or he would take a hand in the fight. At this Crowley 
let go of Kelly and went away and procured a heavy wooden maul with a handle 
about two feet long. When he came in he struck Cramer on the head and Kelley ran 
away. Monday Cramer was brought to Snohomish and placed under care of Dr. 
McCready. He was too seriously injured for anything to be done for him however, 
and on Tuesday at five o'clock he died at the Maple house. Cramer's old home was in 
Mn, where his parents still live. He has two brothers, John Cramer and George 
Cramer in this county, and a sister married and living in Tacoma. Miles 
Crowley is held by the offices at Everett and the charge of murder will be entered 
against him. He is said to be a pleasant and good-natured fellow when not 
drinking.

Wednesday afternoon William Cruikshank, of Harford met his death by an explosion 
of giant powder. The deceased, in company with his brother-in John Scott and 
another man, was engaged in blasting with giant powder. The powder became too 
cold and Cruikshank took it to their shanty to thaw it out. He placed it in the 
oven and sat down waiting for it. The result is the old old story. It got too 
hot and exploded, demolishing the shanty and threw Cruikshank up against the 
side of another shanty killling him instantly. Word was sent to this city and 
after an examination by the coroner the body was brought here. This accident is 
the more appalling because Cruikshank's parents are on the way out from the east 
to visit their son and can hardly receive the painful news until the arrive 
here.
