THREE NOTED AND POPULAR
MEN OF NORTHERN MIN*
NESOTA PASS AWAY.
Charles S. Mitchell.
Charles S. Mitchell, editor-in
chief of the Washington Herald
and for sixteen years editor of the
Duluth News-Tribune, died in Wash
ington, D. C. Monday after a short
illness. Of the life and work of
Charley Mitchell. enough cannot ba
said. He was a man devoted to
the state and the nation and in his
death Minnesota loses one of ita
most loyal friends and supporters.
He was a great student of political,
sociological and educational matters
and his contributions on these sub
jects were renowned. Charley
Mitchell earlier in life was a coun
try newspaper mam and conducted
papers in St. Cloud and other
cities of Minnesota up to the time
he came to Duluth to take charge
of the News-Tribune. He is sur
vived by a widow and two children.
Clarence B. Miller.
Clarence B. Miller formerly con
gressman of this district and well
known by the majority of the citi
zens of the ranges, died in a St.
Paul hospital Tuesday after an ill
ness of two weeks following an
operation for appendicitis on Janu
ary 2, Mr. Miller was returning
to Washington where he was secre
tary of the Republican National
Committee from a trip to Duluth
and was taken ill in St. Paul where
the operation was performed. The
condition of his heart made hie
ailment precarious and news waa
daily given out of the critical con
dition until Sunday when there was
a change for the better and *
marked improvement was noted.
Complications developed Monday
night and he grew rapidly worse
until Tuesday when death ensued.
He is survived by his widow, •
daughter and a son.
Clarence B. Miller was born in
Goodhue County, Minn, in 1872.
His father died when Clarence was
an infant leaving his wife and child
in dire circumstances. He attended
the public schools of Pine Island
and graduated in 1889. He gradu-
ated from the academic department
of the State University in 1895.
Later he graduated from the Uni
versity Law School in 1900
went to Duluth where he practiced
law until his removal to Washing
ton. He was elected representative
to the state legislature from Du
luth and served in the 1907 session
when he put over a most remark
able fight against the tonnage tax.
The following year he was elected
to Congress from the Eighth Dis
trict, defeating J. Adam Bede,
serving ten years. In 1918 he
was defeated by W. L. Cana. He
has served as National secretary
for the Republican party since the
beginning of the campaign of 1920.
He 'was a big man in the govern
ment and at one time was recog
nized as the logical man for prefi
dent of the Philipines but gave
way to Major-Gen. Leonard Wood
in the interests of harmony. He
with J. Adam Bede and James A.
Tawney have kept Minnesota on
the congressional map and much of
benefit to the state was enacted
during their incumbency in office.
His funeral will take place at Pine
Albert B. Coatea.
After a heroic fight for life
since last May, Albert B. Coates of
Virginia succumbed a t Ojlando,
Florida, where he had gone for
his health, on Tuesday. His fight
for life has been declared heroic by
the attending physicians and was
characteristic of A. B. Coates who
came to Virginia when a young
man practically penniless and with
indomitable pluck and perseverance
coupled with much hard work, he
has massed a fortune estimated at
a million or more. He leaves a
widow and a son and daughter,
who left with the body for Virginia
at once and it is expected the fun
eral will be held Sunday.
Mr. Coates first complained of
his illness last May. Early in July
he went to Rochester and under
went an operation for cancer of
the stomach. The growth ‘ was
malignant and had affected nis
liver the doctors informed him and
he went to Chicago where he spent
the summer under the care of a
specialist. With his family ha
went to Florida six weeks ago.
Albert B. Coates was born in Cleve
land, Ohio, 52 years ago. He was
a prominent athlete and a weH
baseball player in his young
er days. He came to Virginia m
1897 and at once got into the min
ing game securing his first actual
mining experience at the Franklin
mine under Capt. Chas. Trezona of
this city. Not satisfied with being
a plodder in the mining field, he
became an operator and associated
with Morton Miller of Duluth,
opened up several properties.
Later in company with George B.
Tweed, he operated on the Mich
igan and the Cuyuna ranges.
He was foremost in everything
for the good of Virginia his home
town and was the mainstay of all
athletic events in that city. He
was also at the head or interested
m all commercial activities for the
good of the community and its
people and interested in practically
every industrial enterprise that was
born in Virginia. He will ba
missed and for him it can be truth
fully said that Virginia has been
much better for his having lived
there. The entire city, and in fact
the entire county, mourns the
■ death of A. B. Coatea
