HIS DEATH MOURNED BY MANY

I Men of the World—He

Frank 11. Peavey is dead. The news
■will come as a shock to many all over
the entire country, as he was one of the
foremost grain men of the world. The
end came at 3 o'clock yesterday morn
ing in the Auditorium Annex, Chicago,
where he was taken sick with pneumonia
several days ago, and which affliction
the best medical science in that city was
unable to combat.
v He was somewhat better Saturday
and Sunday, and his friends held out
liope for a speedy recovery. Early
Monday morning he had a relapse, and
at 2 o'clock he sank into unconscious
ness which continued until death oc
Almost all the members of his family
were at his bedside when he breathed
•his last. Mrs. Peavey was with him all
through his illness, having left a sick
toed herself in Minneapolis when she was
notified of his condition.
Mr. Peavey at the time of his death
was one of the wealthiest citizens ot
Minneapolis. Unaided and by his own
efforts he built up a great fortune. In
the business world none stood nigher
than he. He was not a speculator. When
he bought or sold wheat it was the
actual commodity; he did not deal in
Mr. Peavey was a very sociable man,
and as such he will be missed amongst
his friends even more than as a man
of affairs. Of recent years, at his sum
mer residence, "Highcroft," on the
shores of beautiful Minnetonka, it was
one of this greatest pleasures to have his
friends with him, and it was there he
.spent the happiest moments of h.s life,
surrounded by his family.
He was an easy man to approach, and
was never too busy to listen to anyone
■who might call on him for advice or as
sistance, and the appeals of the needy
were never made in vain. In matters of
great importance to the city or state
his advice was eagerly sought, and his
wisdom carried much weight in all ques
tions on which his opinion was asked.
Mr. Peavey was probably the largest
owner of elevators in che world. They
were located all over the West and
Southwest, and the sign of "P. V."
was a familiar one to all travelers. His
grain business assumed such enormous
proportions that he had a line of "P. V."
freight cars built to handle a part of It.
In this manner, while other grain deal
ers were unable to secure cars to handle
their grrain, Mr. Peavey was able to take
care of his business in a perfectly satis

lil* life, it might be said, and when the
end did come his family and friends
could scarcely realize it. His death will
be a severe loss to the business world
and a greater one to the community iti
which he lived. His life is one which all
men might emulate with profit. His
honor and integrity were unquestioned.
He was persevering, industrious and
painstaking. He had a wonderful grasp
of business details, and the system
Which pervaded all his business interests
was so perfect that it moved along like
'a piece of machinery.
Wsim Heavily Insured.
Mr. Peavey was probably one of the
most heavily insured, men in the United
States. About two years ago he took
cut h.'.sl,(Xi'i.AtV> policy; It was probably the
first one of the size ever taken out in the
Northwest. Mr. Peavey was a man who
could go into f!ie Eastern money markets
and borrow $1,000,000 at any time on liis
own personal note, but this life insurance
was taken out as a precautionary

Be Started With Nothing.
Frank H. Peavoy was born In Eastport,
Me., Jan. IS, ISSO. His father died when
he was about nine years old, and at the
time of his death was interested in the
lumber industry and rilso owned a line
of coasters plying between Eastport and
/When he was thirteen years old he made
up his mind to go West. Chicago was his
objective point. He had an uncle resid
ing there, and it was the meeea towards
winch his hopes were set... He was at
tending the Eastport public schools at
the time. The only difficulty about his
going to Chicago was the money ques
tion. He had none, with which to pay his
way, so he immediately set to work sell-
Ing Boston papers on the Eastport docks,
and in two years he made enough to ac
complish his purpose, besides attending
school all of the time.
At the age of fifteen Frank Peavey left
his widowed mother and two younger
children and set out for Chicago. He
went alone, and it was the first time
that he had ever ridden on a railroad
train. When he arrived at Chicago he
went to the home of his uncle, who se
cured for him a job as messenger boy
for the grain firm of Hin it ley, Handy &
00.. of which W. T. Baker, first vice
president of the "Columbian exposition,"
was the company. This experience was
BIGGER BOX W3|ggSp\
THE MODERN STOVE POLISH
FIRE PROOF ff
of great benefit to him in his after life.
Strangely enough the uncle to whom he
owed his start in life is now in the employ
of the Peavey Elevator company as a
wheat buyer, and has been so employed
for many years.
Two friends of his father, neither of
whom Frank knew at the time, resided in
Chicago. One was president of a bank
and the other president of a railroad
company. The former one day sent him
an offer of a position in the bank, which
was accepted, and he shortly after was
promoted to succeed Mr. Odell, now presi
dent of the Unon National bank of Chi
cago. The work, however, proved too
severe for him. and in the summer of 1866
he was compelled to resign on account
of ill health, and return to his home in
Maine for a much needed rest.
Goes Back to Chicago.
The following spring, -however, saw him
again in Chicago, but at that time there
were thousands of men in Chicago seek
ing employment and young Peavey found
work scarce. He, however, found work
in a dry goods store where he was em
ployed for $b per week. This was only a
makeshift and in about two weeks he
met P. B. Weare, who found him a posi
tion in Sioux City. He had to borrow
550 from an old resident in Eastport to
get from Chicago to Sioux City. The
position was bookkeeper in a local Hank,
which he held for four'3'ears and then
resigned to help organize the firm of
Booge, Smith & Peavey, dealers in agri
cultural implements. The year follow
ing fire destroyed the building occupied
by. the firm, and Mr. Peavey found his
entire savings swept away, and he had
to borrow $2,000 to make good his loss.
Thus again he was left without a cent
and in debt, but he was not discouraged.
Within a few months he succeeded in
reorganizing the firm under the name of
Evans & Peavey. Three years later he
bought out his partnr and began accept
ing grain in payment of agriculturalim
plements, and from this beginning he built
up the largest business of its kind in the
In 1872 he married Miss Mary D.
Wright, daughter of United States Sena
tor George G. Wright, of Dcs Moines, and
the young couple made their home in
Sioux City where Mr. Peavey had his
business. In order to properly care for
his increasing grain business Mr. Peavey
built a small elevator in Sioux City, and
it stood there for years, bearing the
name of "Frank H. Peavey" in immense
letters on its side.
Moves to Minneapolis.
The Dakota & Southern Railroad com
pany was opened up In 1875 and Mr.
Peavey began buying wheat along ils en
tire line, and his business Increased so
rapidly that he was soon forced to turn
his surplus over to the Minneapolis "Mil
lers association. In a short time the
grain firm of Peavey & Evans was re
organized under the firm name of F. H.
Peavey & Co. E. C. Mitchner became
associated with the firm, and he at once
came to Minneapolis to establish head
quarters. Mr. Peavey remained in Sioux
City, where he had other large inter
ests outside of the grain business, but in
18S4 he decided to follow his partner to
Minneapolis. This removal was neces
sary on account of the large increase in
the grain interests at this point.
Minneapolis being the natural distribut
ing point for most of the grain of the
Dakotas and Minnesota, he realized the
advantages which would accrue from a
single company controlling a vast system
of elevators throughout the Northwest
with terminals in this city. The capacity
of elevators and warehouses interior and
terminal operated by the Peavey com
pany is today considerably in excess of
30,000,000 bushels. 'The company operates
elevators along- the Northern 1-aeific,
Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha,
Minneapolis & St. Louis and Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railways.
Mr. Peavey believed In helping those
who helped themselves, and in 1896 he
made a proposition to the newsboys of
the city of Minneapolis, that for each
one of them who deposited one dollar
in the Northwestern bank before Jan.
16 he would add an equal amount, and fit
the end of three months succeeding by
depositing another dollar he would re
peat the gift, and at the end of the year
each boy who had deposited U
would be given an amount equal
to it, making $3 for the year's
savings. Mr. Peavey afterwards
extended a like offer to seventy-five tele
graph messenger boys and seventy-five
additional boys all from Minneapolis.
Some years ago Mr. Peavey erected a
library in memory of his father at his
old home in Ea.stport, Me. It is called
the Albert D. Peavey Memorial library.
It was a rule of Mr. Peavey's business
life never to embark in a new enterprise.

KERN STILL AT LARGE
XEW YORK JEWELRY THIEF CAX
NOT BE LOCATED.
NEW YORK, Dec. SO.—Detective Cap
tain Titus said today that he was confi
dent his detectives would capture Ed
ward Kern, the valet who is accused of
having stolen $50,000 worth of jeweiry
from his employer, Paul Thebaud. A
complete inventory of the jewels shows
that the value of the stolen property
was more than $SO,OOO.
Up to a late hour tonight the police
had not been able to lay their ».ands
on Kern. They announced tonight that
his picture is in the rogues' gallery, be
cause he was once sentenced to a year
in the penitentiary, though the record
docs not show the nature of the charge.
They further announced that if he is
caught Kern will be prosecuted on a
charge of forgery, as well as one of rob
bery, because on the night of his dis
appearance, they allege, ne passed a
forged check for $75 on a saloonkeeper.
The- Herald will assert tomorrow that,
although Capt. Titus said nothing which
would permit the public to know that
much of the /.jewelry that had been
stolen from Mr. and Mrs. Thetoaud had
been recovered, it was learned that such
was the fact. Where the gems had been
found, whether or not they had been
pawned, or what disposition had been
niadfc of them by the fugitive valet
cnuiil not be ascertained.
