Death of J. G Reynolds.
News o( the death of Ja3. C. Key noIds) last Monday night at bis gum iner Lome at eaverville. C, was received here unexpectedly, notwith standing the fact that he had not been in good health for about two years. He liad beer) lookine better for some time and was thought to be improving, feel in so himself, we understood. A few weeks ago he left for .Weaverville to join Mrs. Reynolds, who resides there every summer. He was in fine humor and lookine comparatively well. The news of his death, therefore, came as a diS' tinct shock to his hosts of Union City friends and to the entire community, where he has spent the best years of his life since childhood. Mr. Reynold's illness begar. with an attack of indigestion and, besides bis own family physician, he" secured the ' advice and assistance of the best medi cal talent he could find elsewhere. As stated, he was very ill for several months, but bad recently, or apparent Iv so. earned strength. The attack at Weaverville was therefore of an acute nature, death resulting Monday night, July 13, 1914. James Canada Reynolds was born at Cleveland, Tenn., the son of Charles L. and Frances (Reagan) Reynolds, of En glish desoent, attending school at Wea verville. N. C. Afterwards be entered the train service of the N. C. and St. L. Railway, receiving promotion to the po sition of passenger conductor, which position he held for eighteen years, the lattor part of this period with the M. & O. Railroad Company. After a very popular connection with railroad work, and with the warmest regard of the highest official of the road to the hum West employee, he left and began in 1895 the erection of the Palace Hotel in Union City, and here the family have been located since that time, except a number of years that Mrs. Reynolds and the children have spent the summers in their Weaverville mountain home. Here the popular hotel man entered actively in public affairs. His liberal ity, enterprise and big-hearted, jovial disposition soon made him one of the most popular men in Union City. He was easily one of the leaders in Union City; in fact there are numbers of in etitutions, the best we have, which are to be credited to his initiative and gen , eralship. He was interested in the schools and churches, in every public business enterprise, and when the old nnnrn nniiHa niuiiimir vrsiN HHNTrtivi'ii 1 1 1 1 JA 1 some years ago, almost single handed lie secured the means and caused the building of the present commodious quarters, now known as Reynolds The atre, which was afterwards purchased by Mr. Reynolds. His unselfish and generous nature was felt in all his ac tivities. Every year since the building of the. opera house its use has been tendered by the manager and recent owner, Mr.. Reynolds, free of charge for our school commencements and to the Confederate veterans for their meet ings. He was liberal to the churches and, in fact, to every public enterprise, and the call of suffering and distress al ways appealed to his kind heart. Many of his generous deeds were never known. He was not only an active citizen, but a useful one. He had eood. sound business judgment and his advice and counsel were valued. In short, the band and heart of Jim Reynolds were in almost every public and private benefi ranra and his active sunnort in eve'rv V I I" : tt l -"'I" '" 7 Mr. Reynolds was elected by a large majority and served in the capacity of alderman of Union City, afterwards making the race for mayor with a pop ular ballot which came within a few votes of a tie. His usefulness was not more in evidence than his influence with the people. - In private interests the same general characteristics predominated. With the Palace Hotel there was practically no competition for many years, but, in order to accommodate the public and keep abreast with the times, this house was enlarged and improved at various periods , with modern quarters. The latest was an addition of apartments equipped with all the modern comforts and devices. In 1878 J. C. Reynolds and Miss Josephine Inman were united in mar riage, the ceremony taking place at the borne of Mrs. Reynolds in Union City. The union was truly an alliance of hearts and souls. The attachment was remarkable. The husband never lost his youthful interest in kindness and at tention to Mrs. Reynolds, and some years ago, when his companion lost some of her native health and strength, be built her a summer home in the pic turesque Land of the Sky at Weaver ville in the mountains of North Caro lina, in the midst of the scenes of his youthful days. This was probably the most important and the kindest act of his devotion among the maDy beau tiful and tender tokens to his wife. One son survives the union, Mr. Clarence Reynoldswho was recently designated as manager of the Palace Hotel by bis father. He is survived also by two grandchildren, Charley Hill and Mar garet, who have been the subjects of the big man's kindness and devotion. Another son, Rex, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds, but death intervened in babyhood, when he was but eighteen months old. Some years ago Mr. Reynolds became a member of the First Christian Church in Union City, and he was soon after commissioned with the office of deacon in the church. This, however, was a friendly appellation conferred upon him some years before when the" minister, Rev. W H. Sheffer, asked him to as sist in taking up a collection. Mr. Reynolds was in the audience, and the minister, after exhausting the names of his board, made the request. Based upon the fact that Mr. Reynolds had collected fares, he calledhim "Deacon," and asked him to pass the plate. Mr. Reynolds was a member of sev eral orders. He, however, was affiliated more particularly with Masonry. He was a Scottish Rite Mason and a Shriner, an Elk and a K. of P. In all of his church and fraternal connections he was useful and loyal. Faults he had some, but these "we write upon the sands, his virtues upon the tablets of love and memory." The writer knew him well, and had reason to know the extent of his kindness. He was a strong and steadfast friend and an open foe, but, as is usually characteristic of a generous nature, he was ready and anxious to shake hands and be friends. No bigger soul proba bly has ever lived among us. He was known familiarly as "Jason,"- "Dea con" and "Cap," and probably had other popular titles. His friends were legion, and his separation from the walks of life leave a sorrowing fam ily and a broken community. He was all in all a man whose like we ne'er shall see again. , Peace to bis ashes. The remains were shipped from North Carolina Wednesday, accompanied by Mrs. Reynolds, Clarence and the chil dren, but were delayed at Corinth on account of connections, reaching Union City yesterday on the evening train. The remains were taken to the Palace Hotel and lay in state until 7:45 this morning. Funeral services are an nounced at 8 o'clock at the First Chris tian Church. The following were nam ed as pall bearers: Dr. C. W. Miles, Harry T. Robinson, S. R. Bratton, J. A. Whipple, Walter Howell, George Moody, Andrew Cox, R. P. Whitesell. A Shrewd Buyer.
