DEMISE IS SHOCK TO
OFFICIALS OMTATE
*s Praised For Work With
State Funds; Death Fol
lowed Illness of Thirty
Minutes of Heart Attack
Goldsboro. Jun. G. (AH' -Captain
Nathan O’Berry .treasurer of North
Carolina and prominent in State edu
cational, manufacturing and political
circle*, died at hi* home here early
today, thirty minutes after being
stricken with angina pectoris.
Yesterday he had been in his usual
health which was considered excel
lent for a man of his age. He was 7D
year* old.
About 12:30 thi* morning he became
ill. He died at 1:00 a. m. He was in
excellent spirit* a few hours before
and hi* sudden death came as a shock
to this community.
Captain O’Berry journeyed every’
day from Goldsboro to Raleigh to
carry on his duties as State Treasurer !
and made the 52 mile trip and return
ed in usual fashion yesterday.
Funeral services will be conducted
here at 11 a. m. tomrrow morning at
(he Goldsboro Presbyterian church.
The Ucv. Peter Mclnlryre, will of
ficiate.
Tlie death of Captain O’Berry, who
spent all of yesterday in his office
here, came as a shock to Governor
O. Mux Gardner and all who heard
of it early this morning.
C-overnor Gardner issued a brief
statement in which he declared:
“Hi my generation, the State has
never had a more patriotic or valu
able public servant.”
It is expected that the Capitol will
be closed In hi* honor, and that all
State officials will attend the funeral.
To Name Successor.
As wa* the case with his own ap
pointment, which was made one day
after the death of hi* predecssor,
Benpamin R. Lacy, the vacancy will
be fitted with more haste than is us
ually the case when a public official
diea. This is necessarily true, for
when the State Terasuiier die; the
whole fiscal machinery of the State
stops, a* all funds are deposited in
his name and can Be drawn upon
only by his signature.
Captain O’Berry brought to his of
fice a ripe experience in business and
booking, but the outstanding achieve
ment of his administration IsT con
sidered the care with which he safe
guarded all State funds. Although ap
proximately 156 banks fin .the State
failed during his . adoUhistratlon- and
th« State had deposits In ittores of
the closed institutions, the State did
not lose a dollar in .any at the failures,
all of the deposits being amply se
cured.
Good Official.
He was most Jealous of the State’s
credit ar.d rejoiced greatly when the
State secured the lowest interest rate
approximately $2,500,000 at 3 1-3 per
emit. Yesterday he spent the last
