irai'S FIGHT
Washington's ex-Governor Js
Dead After Illness of
Four Months.
Wish of Late Executive Is to Be
Complied With, Although In Ar
mory, Chamber of Commerce
Will Hold Memorial.
SEATTLE. Wash., June 23. (Spe
cial.) John H. McGraw, ex-Governor of
Washington, died at his residence here
at 6:45 o'clock this morning:. He had
been ill for nearly four months, suf
fering: from typhoid fever, with compli
cations, and for a month his life had
been despaired of. For the past week
nearly every hope of recovery had been
abandoned, and last nlgrht.' beaten at
eery turn, the doctors ceased to ad
minister the oxygen and strychnine that
had prolonged the losing fight, and
waited for the end.
Ex-Governor McGraw was a man of
strong constitution and iron will, and
he kept up the fight long "after it was
seen that he had little chance for life.
He was unconscious to the end. With
him at the tfedslde were his physician.
Dr. E. R. Kelley, who is a nephew of
Mr. McGraw: Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hudson
Baxter, daughter and son-in-law, and
Mr. and Mrs. Mark T. McGraw, son and
Funeral arrangements have not yet
been announced. It was the wish of
the ex-Governor .that no public funeral
service be held, and this will doubtless
be followed. The Chamber of Com
merce, however, from the presidency of
which Mr. McGraw only recently re
tired, is planning to hold a public me
morial service in the Armory within a
few days.
Mr. McGraw's last public service was
at Washington, p. C, where he ap
peared before the Congressional com
mittee in behalf .of the appropriation
which was passed by Congress for the
construction of the Lake Washington
canal. Perhaps the most important
feature of the picturesque career of ex
Governor McGraw was his 20-year fight
for the construction of this canal, and
he lived to see work begun on his fa
vorite project.
Born Into Poor Family, He Made
His Way to Top.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 19. (Special.)
Born in poverty and obscurity, John H.
McGraw became clerk in a little country
store, then Its proprietor. Unable to
withstand the fierce panic of '73, and com
pelled to abandon the general merchan
dise business in which, with an 'older
brother, he embarked three years before,
he came to the Pacific Coast, worked
ftg a horse-car driver in San Francisco
and then, drifting to Seattle, became in
turn hotel clerk, hotel proprietor, police
man. City Marshal. Ohief of Police,
Sneriff. bank president and Governor of
his adopted state.
John Harte McGraw. son of Daniel and
Catherine (Harte) McGraw, was born at
Barker Plantation, Penobscot County,
Maine, near the Canadian border, Octo
ber 4. 1850.
When he was a. little more than two
years old his father was drowned In the
Penobscot River. His mother was left
with three small children, and as Gov
ernor McGraw often expressed it, "pov
erty in abundance."
At 14 He Was Driven From Home.
Upholding Law Brings Defeat.
He continued to fill .these offices by
annual re-election until February, 18S2.
when he was elected Sheriff of King
County to fill the unexpired term of L.
V. Wyckoff. He was re-elected to this
position in November, 1882, and again two
years later.
During hie third term as Sheriff oc
curred the anti-Chinese agitation, with
its accompanying disturbances of the
peace. He promptly made known his
intention to uphold the laws and main
tain the peace of the county at any cost,
and for this stand he Incurred the hos
tility of those who sympathized with agi
tation in its lawless phase, and when he
was nominated for re-election in Novem
ber, 1SS6, he was defeated, together with
all the other candidates who had been
nominated for county offices by his party.
During his .occupancy of the office of
Sheriff he had devoted much of his time
to the study of . the law and was admitted
to the bar. Shortly after his retirement
to private life he formed a partnership,
in March. 1887, with Roger 8. Greene, who
had formerly been Chief Justice of Wash
ington Vrerritory, and C. H. Hanford, at
present United States District Judge for
the district of 'Washington, and began
the practice of law.
Later Joseph F. McNaught entered the
firm, and the firm name of Greene, Han
ford & McGraw became Greene, -Hanford,
McNaught & McGraw.
In. 1SSS he retired from the law firm
and again accepted the nomination for
Sheriff of King County and was elected
by an overwhelming majority. In 1890
he refused to be a candidate for re
election, and accepted the presidency of
the First National Bank of Seattle.
Still Interested In politics, he was a
member of the National Republican con
vention in 1892. He was elected Governor
of Washington that year and served the
four-year term beginning January, 1893,
and ending in 1897.
McGraw has always been known as a
fighter in politics. When nominated for
Governor in 1892, lie was knifed in Pierce
County, but King County rallied to his
support with the slogan of the Lake
Washington Canal. He was practically
elected by his own county, for the vote
in the rest of the state was almost a tie.
McGraw Strong for Sound Money.
In 1S96, when the silver agitation had
split the Republican party, he led the
sound money forces in the state conven
tion at Everett and after . a bitter fight
secured the Insertion in the platform of a
more emphatic sound money plank than
was to be found in the Republican plat
forms of many coiservative Eastern
states. He foresaw defeat in the election,
but that did not daunt him.
When McGraw returned as Governor, in
January, 1897, he was a poor man, for
the long-continued depression -had lm-

t ASTORIA, Or.. June 23. (Spe-
1 cial.) Mrs. Elizabeth Talbot
I O'Connor, wife of Edward O'Con-
nor, who died in this city on "
t Monday morning;, after an illness
t of several years, was born in
I Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland, 69 , ,
I years ago, and came to- this i,

paired the value of his property and de
stroyed the market for it. At this time
it was discovered that one of hie sub
ordinates during his last term as Sheriff
had embezzled nearly $40,000. for which
McGraw, though not implicated, was
legally liable. He immediately deeded all
his property in trust to make good the
amount and went out to retrieve his for
tunes. He resigned the presidency - of the First
National Bank, went to Alaska, laid the
foundation of a new fortune at Fair
banks and returned after two years. He
then formed the real estate firm - of Mc
Graw, Kittinger & Case, through which
he amassed a considerable fortune. He
several years ago paid the county the
entire amount of his deputy's defalca
tion with Interest and sedeemed the prop
erty he had deeded. ,. -
During a large part of the time when
the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition was
open, he was its chief executive as vice
president and the success of the fair
was largely due to his energy and ability.

Precincts to Hold Assemblies ant
Choose Delegates to County As
sembly to Be Held 16.
CORVALLT3, Or., June 23. (Special.)
The County Central Committee of
Benton County met In Corvallis June
21 at the call of Chairman George E.
Lilly, to discuss the advisability of an
assembly and the best methods along
which to proceed.
There was a good representation of
the committee present, and considerable
discussion as to the best methods along
which to proceed in the selection of dele
gates to the state convention. The plan
which met with general favor was the
one of iiaving a county assembly as out
lined by the State Central Committee.
Each pnecinct is to hold its assembly
and elect delegates to ' the county as
sembly. The matter of apportionment
was left to be worked out by the chair
man and secretary.
In all probability the apportionment
will be one delegate-at-large for each
precinct and one for every 10 voters or
fraction thereof over five. This will
make a very representative county as
sembly, and every Republican voterN of
the county will have a voice in the se
lection of candidates.
The precinct assemblies will be held
July 9 and delegates wil be elected to
the county assembly, which meets In
Corvallis July 15. and at such meeting
the delegates to the state assembly will
be chosen. The number of delegates
from Benton County will be 24.
Republicans of North Independence
Elect Eleven Delegates.
(Special.) In accordance with, a regularly-called
Republican primary for
North Independence precinct, held last
evening, after earnest and spirited ad
dresses, all in hearty sympathy with
the assembly idea, the following gen
tlemen were elected delegates to the
Republican county assembly to be held
in Dallas, Saturday, June 25, all of
whom will attend:
W. W. Percival, F. A. Patterson, J. S.
Cooper, M. Goetz, J. E. Hubbard, J. L.
Hanna, A. Dee Davidson, E. M. Young,
R. H. Knox, A. Wilson, E. E. Paddock.
Oregon Trunk Engineers Move to
West Side of Klamath Lake.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or., June 23.
CSpeclal.) The engineers who are run
ning the preliminary survey for the Ore
gon Trunk road have moved their camp
from the east side of the Upper Klamath
Lake to the west side. For the past sev
eral weeks this crew has been camped
at the mouth of Williamson River on
the east side of the lake and has worked
through the straits and marsh land of
the north end of tills body of water to
the west side near the late E. H. Harrl
man's Pelican Bay Lodge property.
The removal ,of the surveying crew to
the west side of the lake has dispelled
the belief that the Hill line would use
the Southern Pacific tracks, and ' it is
now conceded that It will come into the
city down the west side of Link River
and will have its station on the west
borders of the city.
The Weyerhaeuser lumber Interests and
the Hill railroad interests are closely
allied, and where the. Weyerhaeusers
have large timber holdings the Hill rail
road will bund sooner or later, it is be
lieved. Because of this it is believed
that "the present survey is headed for
Balls Bay, on the west side of the lake.
haeusers expect to build one of the larg
est sawmills in the world as soon as
transportation can be secured. The Wey
erhaeusers own an immense body of the
finest yellow pine to be found in the
country on the borders of Balls Bay.
Milton Has School Election.
MILTON, Or., June 23.-(Special.) At

When McGraw was 8 years old' his
mother married a second time. When he
was 14 years' old he left home because
of a disagreement with his stepfather,
and thereafter he was compelled to rely
upon his own exertions. His scant edu
cation was acquired at a few terms' at
tendance at a country school, but in spite
of all disadvantages he succeeded in
maintaining himself, and at 17 he secured
employment as a clerk in a general mer
chandise store.
There he remained for three' years,'
although it does not appear to have
e.n grossed him entirely; for he was mar
ried October 12. 1874.
During the Winter of the following
year the firm of McGraw Bros, suc
cumbed to the business depression that
followed the panic of '73, and John H.
McGraw was once . more thrown upon
his own resources. After this reverse
he determined to set out for the Pa
cific Coast.
San Francisco was his objective point
when he left the Pine Tree state. There
he arrived July 10. 1S76. and for the next
few months he worked as a horse-car
driver in that city.
It was a casual acquaintance he met,
who induced and assisted him to come
north to Seattle, and he arrived In this
city December 28, 1676. For the ensu
ing several months he was employed as
a clerk at the Occidental Hotel.
During the next year, however, he be
came one of the lessees of the American
House, a 6mall hotel located near
Yesler's wharf, and he conducted the
business of that hotel until the building
was destroyed by Are 1878.
After this last reverse a more favor
able current set In. He solicited and obr
tained a position on the police force of
Seattle, which then consisted of four
men.xHe served one year and in July,
1879, ' he was elected City Marshal by the
people, and chosen by the City Council as
Chief of Police.
