DEATH OF CHAS. LOGAN
The Sad End Finally Comes This Noon, After a Long Illness
Nov. 27, 1899 (hand written)
After months of illness, Chas. Logan, a well-known and popular resident of this city, passed away at about twenty minutes of one to-day. The sad event falls like a pall upon the hearts of many friends in the city, who have watched with anxiety the progress of the dread disease, knowing the end must soon come, but clinging to the straws which remain while there was still life. The disease was diagnosed as cancer of the liver, a slow, wasting one, gradually weakening Mr. Logan’s sturdy constitution until the end has come at last.
Mr. Logan was exceedingly popular about the city and his death will be sincerely mourned. He was prominent among the volunteer firemen and in all a good citizen. He had been engaged in the business of a blacksmith for nearly 21 years, the last thirteen being in the partnership of Logan & O’Toole on Iowa avenue. He was in his 42d year and leaves a wife and family to mourn his loss.
The time of the funeral had not been set at the time the Journal went to press, nor was it possible to obtain a more full obituary. The latter, however, we hope to be able to have for to-morrow’s issue.
