'.VIII lain Campbell Kelley.
A telegram was. received here
Saturday, bringing the sad news of
the death of William Campbell
Kelley, at Skaguay, Alaska. The
deceased was 28 years of age, and a
son of Dr. I. O. Kelley, pastor of
the First Methodist Church of this
city. His home was at Leeville, in
Wilson county, Tennessee, where,
up to a short time ago, he was en
gaged in agricultural pursuits with
his brother. On January 31 he sold
his interest in the farm and stock to
his brother, and started for Alaska.
He had a friend at Skaguay, Dr.
Richard Allen, of Dixon Bprinirs,
who had written him to come there.
On the voyaare from Seattle to
Kknguay, Mr. Kelley caught cold,
and never rallied from its effect.
Throughout his sickness he was at
tended by his friend, Dr. Allen, and
on March 2 he breathed his last.
Dr. Allen immediately prepared for
returning to the States with his re
mains, and as soon as Seattle, the
nearest telegraphic station, was
reached, he sent a message to Mr.
Kelley's relative in Tennessee.
The deceased was a young man of
many manly attainments, and
was well-known and respected for
his high and honorable char
acter in business life. He was pro
gressive, energetic and industrious,
and by thrift and economy had ac
cumulated some means ; and, fear
ing no obstacle or danger, was on
his way to the Klondike partly for
gain, partly for the love of travel
and the Measures of adventure. His
was a brave, warm-hearted, chiv
alric nature, and he had endeared
himself to a large number of friends,
who will learn of his most untimely
death with genuine sorrow. Dying
In a strange land far away from
home and loved ones, and in the
budding usefulness of young man
hood, his most untimely taking otT
was a great shock and sad affliction
to his devoted father, who, in this
dark hour of sorrow, has the deepest
sympathy of everyone, of all denom
inations. Rut the friends who weep
with him have the sweet consola
tion of knowing that the God he has
served so long and so faithfully, will
give him the needed grace to endure
and complain not; that His rod and
His stall will comfort htm. How
doubly precious our religion is,
when even in an hour like this we
may turn to it as our only solace,
and find that it never fails.
The remains of the deceased reach
ed Nashville yesterday morning,
and a special train convoyed them
to Leeville, where the interment
took place In the family burying-
ground. The services were conduc
ted at the grave by Rev. W. T. Hag
Lime W. Sowell.
Mr. Jame W. Sowell was born in
North Carolina in the year 1812, and
entf red into peace March U, 1893. at
his residence near Highyville in this
county. In 1820 Mr. Sowell came to
Tennessee with his father and fami
ly, and settled in Maury County,
where he has since made his home
He was held In the highest esteem
by his friends and neighbors, and
was a man of true worth and merit
He leaves surviving him one daugh-
t r and four sons, to whom the deep
est sympathy is extended. The
funeral services were conducted
Tuesday afternoon at the family
residence by Rev. N. R. S. Owiuirs,
and the burial took place in tlie
Hunter graveyard with Masonic
honors, members of the Columbia
and Rigbyvilla lodges taking part
in the services.
