THE WASHINGTON TBEES, SUNDAY, JULY 7, 1912.
Mrs. Julia Barber Was on
Way Back to Washington
When Death Came.
FORTY INJURED IN
Engineer Beach, of Alexandria,
Killed in Accident Near
Mrs. Julia I Barber, widow of Amzl L.
( Barber, the asphalt king, died last night
On a Pullman car whllo returning to
Washington from New York, where Bhe
bade good-by yesterday to her daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Le Drolct Langdon Barber,
who Is on the Gorman-American liner
Moltke, bound for Europe. The. younger
Mrs. Barber Is In such precarious state
Of health, following years of nervous
prostration and a recent fall from a
fourth-Btorv window, that no attempt
was mado to reach her by wireless, and
she will not know of the sudden death
of the elder Mrs. Barbor until the liner
touches a continental port.
Mrs. Barber was on her way to Wash
ington to attend to a few details of busi
ness before going to Fairfield. Conn.,
whero her daughter, Mrs. S. E. Davis,
has a summer cottago. While on tho
train Mrs. Barber asked the conductor
for water several times. Passing her
seat when tho Journey was nearly end
ed, he noticed her sitting limply, and
found that she was dead. So quietly
had sho passed away that none of the
passengers were aware of It,
Miss Helen Calkttm, Mrs. Barber's pri
vate secretary, was at the Union Station
to meet her. Sho was greatly shocked
when Informed that Mrs. Barber waf
dead, this Information coming to her
within a few minutes after the police
had taken charge of the body and had
sent It to an undertaking establishment,
whence It was removed to Belmont,
the fine residence of Mrs. Barber, at
fourteenth and Clifton streets.
Miss Calkins at once notified the rela
tives of Mrs. Baibsr. Mr. and Mrs. 3.
E Davis, of New York, who wore in
Washington Immediately after the
younger Mrs. Barber had narrowly es
caped death by falling from a window
in the tower of Bclmunt, were sum
moned and arrived here today. Mr.
and Mrs. E. P. Davis, of tho High
lands, the parents of S. E. Davis, presi
dent of the Oldsmoblle Company, were
notified at once and Mrs. Charles B.
Vance, who lives at Belmont but who
was away when Miss Calkins learned
of Mrs. Barber's death. Word of the
death was sent also to J. J. Albright,
of Buffalo, brother-in-law of Mrs. Bat
her, to Andrew Langdon, of Buffalo,
her brother, and to her sister, Mrs. E.
E. I Woodward, of Chicago.
Tho funeral arrangements will prob
ably be announced tomorrow.
H. Prescott Qatley, who had charge
of Mrs. Barber's business affairs, called
at Belmont this morning. The disposi
tion of tho extensive estate will wait
upon the arrival hne of all members of
Miss Calkins said today .hat Mrs.
Barber frequently suffered from acute
indigestion. Coroner Nevltt examined
the body after it had been removed
from the train and gave an affidavit
that Mrs. Barber had died from heart
failure Induced by acute Indigestion.
Familiar with the state of Mrs. Bar
ber's death, Miss Calkins nan satis
fied with this diagnosis.
It was remarked that a diamond ring
which Mrs. Barber ordinarily wore ana
a hand bag which she ordinarily car
ried wero not found in the car. Atten
tion was called to this by Miss Calkins,
but the private secretary buld today
that she did this only as a measuie
of precaution because Mrs. Barber, de
parting hurriedly, may have left these
valuables here or may have lelft them
with her daughter, Mrs. S. E. Davis, In
New York. Mrs. Barber's diamond ear
rings and other similar Jewelry were
intact when her death was discovered.
These and the money xound on her per
son were taken In charge by the police
Mrs. Bnrber was sixty-nine years old.
She spent her childhood in Belmont, N.
Y., and after her marriage In 1871 to a.
L. Bnrber, the palatial residence built
In Washington was named after her
childhood home. She was a leader of
the social set among permanent resi
dents of Washington, was a former vice
president of tho D. A. R., was a wo
man suffragist, opposed vivisection and
with her splendid homo, filled with pic
tures, tapestries and many valuable ob
jects of art, as a background was one
of the mest prominent figures, among
the elderly women of the Capital.
She is survived by two dauthterd.
Mrs S. E. Davis and Mrs. Charles
Vance and two grand daughters, Irene
Davis, the daughter of Mrs. Davis, and
Julia Langdon Barber, the daughter of
the younger Mrs. Barber, now on her
way to Europe.
Mrs. Le Drolct Barber Intended to go

were traveling In Europe.
