Chicago, March 9.—John Alex ander Dowie died at 7:45 this morning at Shiloh House, Zion City. Thele were present with him when he died only Judge D. N. Barnes and two personal at tendants, It had been Dowie's custom, summer and winter, £o hold religious services every Sun day afternoon in the parlor of Shiloh House. About 350 of his original followers remained faith ful and attended these services. Dowie always wore his apostolic robes and made a characteristic address. Five weeks ago these meetings ceased, and Dowie ap peared no longer in public, The Sunday meetings, however, were still held by his adherents. Since that time Dowie had grad ually been failing. Friday after noon, however, there was no indi cations of approaching death. He -received a few followers, and prayed for some people. His con dition seemed to be about the same as for the last two or thrfje weeks. One of the attendants re mained with him until midnight, and was relieved by the other at tendant. Shortly before 1 o’clock this morning Dowie became de liriouB and his talk was the same as at a religious meeting in the days of his prime. He denounced people with the old time vigor, ordered the guards to throw out disturbers, and acted just as he had on so many previous occa sions. Ho gradually became weaker and weaker, and the at tendant telephoned for Judge Barnes, who reached Shiloh House at 7 a. m. Forty minutes later Dowie died, - - • •-. A Humane Appeal.
