Sylvester Pennoyer, for eight years Gov
ernor of Oregon, Mayor of Portland from
1S96 to 1S9S, and a man of National prom
inence, died very suddenly of heart dis
ease at his home on "West Park and
Morrison streets, about i o'clock yester
day afternoon. Ho was alone in his room
on the second story of his residence at
the time of his death, and was not dis
covered " until 5 o'clock, when his- wife,
returning from a street-car ride with her
son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs.
George F. Russell, found him lying prone
on the floor near a sofa, from which he
had apparently fallen. His glasses lay
broken on the floor beside him, and across
his face was spread an Oregonlan which
he had been reading and which had evi
dently been loosened from his grasp in
MnuPennoyer immediately summoned the
servant and sent for physicians, and prs.
iwflua ana. - .urown, whose officas nr.
near ly,and Dr., Dlckson were called.
An examination convinced them that Gov.
ernor Pennoyer had been dead about an
hour, and it was their opinion that either
heart disease or apoplexy had taken him
off. There was every Indication of a
peaceful, painless death.
Governor Pennoyer - had . of late been
in fair nealth, although his strength was
sapped by an attack of Illness nearly a
year ago, and he had never recovered his
wonted robustness. Of late he had made
daily visits to his ranch in Woodstock,
where he spent several hours In the open
air superintending numerous Improve
ments he was making. Yesterday morn
ing he .went to his ranch as usual and
returned aboiit noon. In the afternoon he
took a walk, and the servant, who was
left alone in the house, said he entered
the house at 3 o'clock, and, as was his
habit, went immediately to his Toom. She
heard no sound of a fall, and was as
tonished beyond measure when Mrs Pen
noyer informed her that something had
happened to the Governor, and sent her
out to summon help.
The news of the Governor's death was
a surprise and shock to W thousands of
friends throughout the city, among whom
it soon spread. He had been on, the street
every day this Spring, had taken a deep
interest in political affairs, although not
participating In them, and his counsel
was much sought by Democratic leaders,
of whom he was recognized as the ablest
up to the day of his death. To those who
spoka to him and Inquired for his health
he invariably replied that he was feeling
better than he had for years,, that his

THE LATE SYLVESTER PENNOYER,
work on his ranch was making a new
man of him and that no ono could bear
more lightly the burden of three-score
I and. ten shears than he. Tho strike ln the
?i$inf-'lw&hJbe still i;talnftd
M-a large lnterestrihaQ glvCn him some un
easiness, but ho expressed himself as
entirely satisfied with the manner In
which it was settled. In fact, with a
fortune, with no political cares, and with
a congenial occupation, that of farming,
his only trouble the last few years was
the Improvement of Alder street, on which I
he owns a block In the heart of town,
and gave him much annoyance because of
his apprehension that It would be paved
In some manner objectionable to him.
Pennoyer was easily the most pictur
esque figure In the political life of Ore
gon. His famous telegram to Grover
Cleveland, through Secretary of State
Gresham, when Cleveland, as President,
advised the Governors of the various
states to guard against Chinese troubles,
was but one of the many unexpected
things which he seemed to delight to
do. He was a man of elegance and force
either on the stump or with his jen, and
his communications to the newspapers
were, no less- Interesting than his speeches,
Both .contributed largely to the attention
ho attracted throughout the state and the
'Nation. Personally he was exceedingly
genial, fond of quoting from scripture
or from Aesop's Fables to Illustrate a
point, a fine story-teller and a charming
companion. He was approachable alike
to every one, and people who year after
year have seen him walking back and
forth from his residence to the business
part of town, remember how often he
was stopped by prominent citizens or la
boring men, and how he loved to chat
with any and all of them. Probably no
one in the city has such a wide circle
of acquaintances as he enjoyed, and cer
tainly no one is better known by sight.
Mrs. Pennoyer and Mrs. George TE Rus-,
sell, a daughter, survive him. His son,
Horace, died about eight years ago at
"Williams College, and was burled from
Trinity Church, and the Governor .never
fully recovered from the shock the Doy's
death caused him.
So sudden was the Governor's death.
and so prostrated are his family by the
shock, that no arrangements for the fu
neral have yet been made.

On this aay, the 30th of May,

in 'the Civil War. Your false
friends then called Grant a
"butcher," and spoke of you who

you, at great length, and with

FRIEND OF UNIONS?
What Has Mr, Inman Done
for Organized Labor?
HIS FIRM IN SAWMILL STRIKE
Distinctly Refused to Sigro Any Union
Agreement or Deal "With Unions
in Any "Way Planning; to De
feat Unions After Election.
"I will tell you that this (planlng
mlll) boycott will hae to stop," said
Mr. Johan Poulnen, of the Arm of In
man, Poulsen & Co., yesterday. "Such
a practice cannot and will not be toler
ated in a free community. It is a prac
tice too low and criminal to -be per
mitted. Any parson who would bojeott
another's business is as much of a
criminal as one who would hold an
other up and rob him of his money."
'Tf the election were over, the strike
could be settled In a very short time,"
said a prominent ouslness man yesterday.
On being asked why, he said: "Because
the whole thing has been a political issue,
and 13 being now used by some ambitious
politicians as a means to capture the
Investigation along the line suggested
by these remarks shows that the position
assumed by some of the candidates for
office has not only done much to bring the
strike situation to Its present complicated
condition, but that their attempt to carry
out the role they have assumed Is Inter
fering with and blocking movements
which bear vitally upon the strike situa
tion. There Is marked evidence of their
game from the beginning of the sawmill
strike. There Is now a movement on foot
among the sawmill owners to join hands
with the planlng-mlll owners to fight the
strike Issue. The firm of Inman, Poulsen
& Co., of which Mr. B. D. Inman Is the
senior member, will. It is expected, tako
an active part In the fight, but nothing
will be done until after election. In order
that Mr. Inman may not be forced to
show his true standing toward the unions
and endanger the large vote he hopes to
et frpm that source.
That Mr. Inman's political ambitions
floured prominently In the sawmill strike,
Undfthat certain labor leaders whjn were
friends of Mr. Inman's used this strike
as a vote-catching scheme, there can be
no doubt. Before a strike was declared
in an of the mills, the men were assured
by their leaders that certain of the mills,
Including Inman, Poulson & Co., stood
ready to sign the union agreement, when
ever it was presented, and that, if they
could force the other mills to recognize
their demands, there would be no trouble
from this source. In an Interview- w 1th a
reporter on May A, John A. Bushman,
president of the Sawmlllmen's Union,
"All of the mills will have to sign tho
union agreement. The strike will not ex
tend to all of them, however, for we have
positive assurance that Inman, Poulsen &
Co. and other mills will sign the agree
ment when presented-"
Mr. Inman was given the credit of his
firm's liberal stand, and his name lauded
high among the strikers. Xott, had Mr.
Inman made this promise in good
fnith, and lintl he the welfare of the
nnlon so much, tit heart, as the union
men have been led to helleV'ethnt he
had, TvbT did lie not t&Uc&jifc' only
step vrhScU conld have obtained the
nnlon its dementis vrlthout a strike
AVhy did he not slgrn the nnlon
agreement and set an example for
his fellow mlllmen? This would have
added more strength to the stand of the
union than anything that could hae
been done. The fact that his company,
one of the largest and most Influential in
the city, had signed this agreement would
have accomplished much toward induc
ing other mills to do the same. The fact
Is, that the firm of Inman, Poulsen & Co.
Is as much opposed to signing an agree
ment with the union as any other m.ll in
the city. In an interview on April SO Mr.
Poulsen said: '
"We pay our men the best wages we can,
bnt there never vrill come a time
when n man In onr mill vrill be
nsked If he is nnlon or nonunion.
If Tve have a union man that Is a poor
hand and we have a chance to get a
nonunion man that Is a good hand we wilt
not hesitate to make the change. As to
signing an agreement with the union,
there is nothing to sign. It takes trvo
responsible parties to make an
agreement, and no nnlon can he re
sponsible. They ask us to give a raise
In wages and certain favors, yet they can
offer absolutely nothing in return; they
cannot even guarantee that their mem
bers -will do a day's work.
""We wish to run our own business, and
will treat our men well, but when we
have to be dictated to by them we will
On May 6, an attempt was made by Rio
millowners to settle the strike by giving
the following notice:
"We hereby give notice to our em
ployes that the present schedule of wage3
will be paid as long as the prevailing:
market conditions of logs and lumber are
This the union leaders resented angrily.
They declared that It was an attempt to
deceive them into submission, and that
the notice was -so Indefinite as to give
absolutely no assurance to them. It never
occurred to these leaders, however, to
point out that the firm of Inman, Poul
sen & Co., whose senior member some
were praising so highly, bended tbe list
of names signed to this notice.
Again, when the millowners and the
union leaders met for final settlement. Mr.
Poulsen, who represented the firm of In
man Poulsen &: Co., at the meeting, de
clared that they tvould not discrimi
nate for or against anion help, and
that they ivonld settle the tronblo
with tbe men as tbeir employes, but
not as a nnlon. "When the notice was
drawn up and signed by the millowners,
the union leaders also offered to sign an
