Sketch of J. Wilbur Chapman
J. Wilbur Chapman was born In
Richmond, Ind., In 1859. He studied at
Oberlln college and graduated later at
Lake Forest university with the class
of '79, finishing with a course in the
Lane Theological seminary. From the
first his desire was to engage in ag
gressive work, and his efforts have al
ways been attended with wonderful
While visiting a former classmate In
New York he was called and accepted
a pastorate In Schuylerville. Here a
revival soon commenced that brought
scores of people into the church. Later
he accepted a call to one of the prin
cipal churches In Albany, New York,
the First Reformed. In five years this
old formal church was transformed
into an aggressive evangelistic body
and 500 people were brought out of the
world Into its fellowship.
His reputation as a successful evan
gelist spread abroad and resulted In
his being called to special evangelistic
work outside of his church. In 1889 he
was urged to become the pastor of
Bethany church of Philadelphia, of
which John Wanamaker is one of the
elders. Believing this a better field
for evangelistic work, he severed con
nection with the Albany church and
entered upon the duties at Bethany.
A result of three years of service there
was a remarkable ingathering of
souls, the church adding 1 about 1100 in
that period of time.

noon, one block south of the eastern

Immediate investigation as to the

LIGHT; SHOCKED TO DEATH
Maurice M. Frieze, a shipping clerk
of the Kastern Outfitting company,
wan almost Instantly killed by elec
tricity parly yesterday morning, in the
basement of the company's warehouse,
Allao and Vlgnes street.
Frieze, who lives with his parents
on Hoyd street, went to work early
Snturday morning and started a large
shipment of furniture out of the ware
house. He was then called to the tel
ephone and talked with the manager
of the company who told him to se
lect a certain article of furniture for
Frieze started for thn basement In
order to select the piece of furniture
and when he did not return some min
utes later one of the employes went to
the basement to look for him.
He was found directly beneath an
Incandescent light which he hud turned
on nt the moment of receiving the
shock of electricity. He was breathing
slightly and a patrol wagon was called
and he was hurried to the receiving
hospital -but died on the way.
An Investigation was immediately
mnde and the wires were examined. A
lineman starting to climb one of the
posts to which the wire was attached
was nearly shocked from the pole by
the heavy current, which was supposed
to have occurred through the sagging
of a telephone wire across the light
It Is thought Frieze attempted to
flnrl the lever of the lamp in the dark
ness of the basement and his hand
came In contact with either the wire
or some portion of the brass lamp. On
the left hand of the deceased two small
burns, one on the thumb nnd one on
the forefinger, Indicated the spot where
the current entered the body.
A clerk from the warehouse ac
companied the body to the hospital
and witnessed the death of his friend
in the ambulance.
Frieze was 25 years of age and un
married. An Inquest will be held ovor
his body by Coroner Trout tomorrow,
but no, one is held responsible for the
