Private Services from the Home
Tomorrow; Death Shock to Friends
----------
          Walter W. Campbell,  secretary and manager of the  M. H. Thrasher Company, died at the hospital yesterday morning at 8:30 o'clock.  He had been critically ill for fifteen hours, suffering from an acute attack which was later diagnosed as ruptured gastric ulcers.  This diagnosis was found to have been correct later yesterday morning.
          Private funeral services will be held from the residence Saturday morning at ten o'clock, with Dr. Harry L. Crain of the Presbyterian church officiating. Burial will be in Green Lawn cemetery.  Friends may call at the residence this afternoon and this evening.
          The passing of Mr. Campbell so suddenly produced a profound shock to citizens who were unaware that he was ill. Wednesday afternoon he complained to his uncle, M. B. Thrasher of severe stomach pains but continued his duties about the store.  At five o'clock he left the office of the Morning Times, returning to the store where he requested that he be conveyed to his home, ___ East Smith street, at once he was taken home and ____ ________ _______ ________ ______ [paper fold] removed from his home to the hospital, his condition being extremely critical at the time.  Physicians were called into consultation and an immediate operation was decided advisable if his life was to be saved, but a weakened heart would not permit it. At daybreak yesterday members of the family and hospital attendees knew that the end was near although physicians were making valiant efforts to stem the fast ebbing spark of life.  He was conscious until his death and passed peacefully into the "undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns.  Word was quickly passed of Mr. Campbell's death and expressions of sympathy were heard on all sides.  He had been actively identified with the city's commercial life for more than a quarter of a century and during that long period had made friends and acquaintances who are legion in numbers.  As buyer for the firm of which he was a part, he was know extensively in the _______ markets which he visited regularly during the changing seasons.  He was an integrant part of the city's commercial and civic life and ever was among the first in sponsoring or carrying forth projects which were for the best interest of all.
          His lot was first cast in Frankfort, when, as a young man, he came here with his uncle, M. B. Thrasher, and took employment in the new Thrasher dry goods store, which had recently been opened.  He continued his residence since that time.
          Mr. Campbell was born in Shelby county, near Shelbyville, January 12, 1873. After graduating from the country schools he took employment in the  S. B. Morris  company store in Shelbyville, Mr. Thrasher being connected with that establishment at the time and worked before and after school and on Saturdays while going to high school.  He graduated and remained with the store for six years.
          In company with Mr. Thrasher he came to Frankfort in the fall of 1897 being at that time twenty-four years of age.  In November, 1898, he was married to  Miss Elizabeth Pearl Kempf  of Frankfort, and permanently established his home here. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. George L. Campbell also moved to Frankfort later.  Twenty-six years ago Mr. Campbell constructed the home on East South street in which he was residing at the time of his death.  Mr. Campbell was a member of the Presbyterian church, the Frankfort Lodge of Elks and local Masonic lodges, including the Knights Templar degrees.
          He is survived by his wife , three sons,  Dr. Leo Campbell  of Chicago;  Dr. Paul Campbell  of Culver Military Academy;  Fred Campbell,  a student in the University of Michigan; two daughters,  Mrs. Herman Engles  of Terre Haute and  Elizabeth June Campbell  of home; one grandson,  Herman Engles, Jr.,  one sister,  Mrs. Olive Uland  of Vincennes; M. B. Thrasher of this city, and  Rolla Campbell  of Indianapolis, uncles.

          William H. Campbell  was born in Bartholomew County, Indiana Nov.25, 1842 and died in Grant City, Missouri, Sept. 1, 1922, aged 79 years, 9 months, and 6 days.  He came with his parents to Albany, Mo., where they settled on a farm in 1847.  His father was attracted to California by the gold excitement but was overtaken on the way by the rugged hand of death.  This left the mother and four children with the care and responsibility of making their living on the little farm.  It fell upon William, who was the oldest boy, then about six years of age, to look after and care for the farm, while the mother took to weaving.
          She did what she could with limited means and disadvantages and restricted school privileges to give the children an education.
          William being eager for an education was soon qualified to teach in the public schools of the county.  Later he was elected circuit clerk and recorder for Worth County, which office he filled for two terms.
          Jan. 8, 1879 he married  Miss Nancy J. DeWitt, to which union two children,  Claude  and  Grace,  were born, both of whom have lived with their father and mother and comforted them during their life.
          Bro. Campbell was bereaved of his companion December, 1918, and now after a little less than four years of separation has joined her in their eternal home.
          There remain to mourn his departure the son and daughter, and  Henry S. Vogel, a foster son since seven years old, one sister, Mrs. W. W. Wiley  of Grant City, and the brother  A. B. Campbell, who lives on the old home place near Albany, MO.  Besides these there are a host of friends and brothers and sisters whom he fellowshipped during his thirty-five years as a member of the Methodist Episcopal church in Grant City, of which he was a trustee at the time of his death.  He was also a member of the Masonic lodge where he leaves many friends to mourn his departure.  Of neighbors and friends with whom he mingled either in a business or social way there are multitudes who will gladly recall the fellowship of other days.
          Besides having served as circuit clerk and recorder, at the organization of the First National Bank he was made Vice President which place he held at the time of his departure.  But his chief business was farming and bee culture on the edge of Grant City where he has spent most of his years.
          The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. D.F. Stiles.  Music was furnished by Mrs. Cory Pettijohn, in two solos, accompanied at the piano by  Miss Elizabeth Mills.  Interment in the City Cemetery.

INJURIES  IN  AN
AUTO  ACCIDENT
----------
Brought on Attack of Pneumonia that
Speedily Proved Fatal -- Achieved
Business Success Here and Was
Prominent Politically.
----------
(From Thursday's Daily.)
          Charles H. Campbell,  the widely known manufacturer of this city died at the Methodist Episcopal hospital in Indianapolis at six o'clock last evening from pneumonia that developed from the injuries he suffered last Saturday night in the railway accident at that place.
          An automobile in which Mr. Campbell and four companions were leaving Indianapolis for this city after having attended the Beveridge meeting at Indianapolis was struck by a Big Four locomotive at the English avenue crossing, one of Mr. Campbell's legs being fractured and the other badly mangled.  He was taken to the hospital immediately, but pneumonia developed Tuesday night and he continued sinking until his death last evening.  His family and friends were wholly unprepared for the news that he was fatally stricken, as the turn for the worse did not occur till noon yesterday.  Immediately afterward the family were taken to the bedside, Mr. Campbell realized the seriousness of his condition and bade them farewell shortly before the end came, after which most of them returned to their homes in this city.  All of them were at the bedside with the exception of a son;  George,  who is in Silver City, N. M., on account of the condition of his lungs.  The father also had weak lungs and they were first to be affected following the terrible accident in which he suffered Saturday night.
          With him in the accident were his two sons-in-law,  Will H. Smith  and  Fred S. Buggie,  of this city;  Harry Antle,  of this city;  Carl Mote,  an Indianapolis newspaper man and a colored chauffeur of Indianapolis, who had been engaged to pilot the Campbell touring car to the city limits after which Mr. Campbell had intended to take charge of the wheel to finish the trip to this city.
          Mr. Campbell had been actively engaged in business here since 1900 and recently he had been an active worker in behalf of the progressive party.  Before that he had attained a reputation more than state wide as an ardent republican.  He was in charge of the Roosevelt headquarters in Indianapolis before the republican convention in Chicago and aided to some extent in launching the new party.
          Following Mr. Campbell's death last night Coroner Durham, of Marion county, was notified and will conduct an investigation of the accident.  The occupants of the touring car insist that the engineer in charge of the locomotive that struck the Campbell car gave no warning either by ringing the bell or sounding the whistle.
          In the death of Charles H. Campbell, Shelbyville has lost one of her most prominent citizens.  He is the third to die recently of the men who had done so much to make Shelbyville a manufacturing center, the others being  Charles L. Davis  and  Harry Whitcomb.
          The story of Mr. Campbell's career is a romance of determination, industry and success.  Beginning as a messenger boy in a telegraph office he worked his way upward until he had become one of the most successful manufacturers of Indiana and a power in the politics of the state and nation.  His success was due in a large sense to his inherent business ability, but it can also be attributed to his character, his unfailing smile and cheery word to all he met.  He was a man to inspire confidence and was a natural leader.  His death is indeed a blow to the city and it will also be widely felt in business circles.
          Charles H. Campbell was the youngest child of  Abraham and  Mary Campbell.  He was born at Lexington, this state, November 28, 1853, making him fifty-eight years, nine months and thirteen days of age at the time of death.  As a boy, he worked for a while with his father at the cabinetmaker's trade, but gave this up to enter the employment of the Big Four railroad, which corporation he served for nineteen years in various positions.  He was telegraph operator, train dispatcher and conductor for short intervals and served fourteen yeras as station agent in this city.
          In connection with  J. A. Conrey  and the late  Frank D. Blanchard,  Mr. Campbell organized a hall-tree factory in 1900.  The business was successful from the start, and Mr. Campbell afterwards purchased the stock owned by his two partners.
          The original factory was located at Center, South and Taylor streets, but the business of the concern had grown so greatly the output was hampered.  In 1909, the C. H. Campbell Furniture Company purchased a tract of land on the Smithland pike and lateral railway, southwest of town, and erected a fine plant with up-to-date equipment.
          Mr. Campbell had been an enthusiastic republican in politics until recently when he joined the new progressive party.  He has been a power both locally and instate politics.  He served two terms in the city council was a member of the school board, was delegate representing the Sixth congressional district in the republican national convention of 1908 and was one of the contesting Roosevelt delegates-at-large from the Hoosier state at the Chicago convention this year.
          Mr. Campbell was a man of great ability, to which was added tireless industry.  He had great executive powers and was a leader among the men with whom he came in contact.
          Mr. Campbell was united in marriage to  Miss Lucinda M. Harding,  September 3, 1876, and by this union six children survive:  Mrs. William H. Smith,  Mrs. Frederick S. Buggie,  George W.,  Florence,  Ruth  and  Stanley Campbell.  The mother died in 1899, and Mr. Campbell afterwards married  Angeline Gowels,  by whom he has one son,  Charles H. Campbell, Jr.,  both of whom survive the husband.
          The deceased was a thirty-second degree Mason, and a member of the Odd Fellows, Elks and Modern Woodman lodges.  He was an influential member of the First Presbyterian church of this city.
          Many of the prominent politicians and business men of the state send condolences on receipt of the news of Mr. Campbell's death.  Albert J. Beveridge,  learning of the death at Knox, Ind., said:
          "I am inexpressibly shocked at the news of Mr. Campbell's death.  The last thing I did before starting out my campaign was to call on him at the hospital Sunday night in Indianapolis.  I had become greatly attached to him as I had learned to know him well during the Roosevelt campaign.  His death is a great loss to our cause.  Those who knew Mr. Campbell as I knew him can but grieve deeply at his death."
          Progressives at both state and county headquarters were shocked at the news of the sudden death of Charles H. Campbell last night.  He had been prominent in the movement since the announcement of the candidacy of Col. Roosefelt last spring, and was well known to all the state leaders.
          Mr. Campbell might have been progressive national committeeman from Indiana had he desired.  When the separation from the republican party came Mr. Campbell refused to be considered as a speaker after a place on the national committee.  The Roosefelt leaders in Indiana saw that he was firm in his refusal and chose  Rudolph G. Leeds,  of Richmond for the place, which he occupies.  The selection was made by the Indiana delegates in the recent progressive convention in Chicago.
          Mr. Campbell's position with the Roosevelt movement was on the advisory board organized by the Roosevelt leaders during the primary campaign and naturally, as was the case with  Edwin M. Lee,  he was directly in line for an office when the new party came into being.  He refusted it, however, but later decided to become affiliated with the party, and had been a valuable member, whose advice was sought on important occasions by the campaign heads.
          Mr. Lee and  Harry B. Stout Jr.,  the latter the secretary of the state progressive organization expressed their regret at the news of the sudden death of Mr. Campbell.  They had had no intimation of the seriousness of Mr. Campbell's condiiton, and had thought as did most of his friends, that he would recover.
          "I can not express my regret," said Mr. Lee last night.  "Mr. Campbell was one of the pillars of the progressive cause in Indiana, and what it has lost can not be determined at all.  It is sufficient to say that there is no one who can fill the place he occupied in the movement.  He was one of the first men to declare for Roosevelt in Indiana and his consideration of the grave issues involved, when the colonel decided to form a new party did not impair his loyalty in the least.  He was heart and soul for the new cause, and all of us regret his death exceedingly."
          "Charles Campbell was one of the finest fellows in the world," said Mr. Stout, "and it is almost impossible for me to believe that he is dead.  I had understood that his condition was all that could be expected and that his recovery would be a matter of a few weeks.  Due to the press of work about the headquarters, where we are engaged in the busies part of the campaign, we had not found an opportunity to see him, but, of course, would have done so had we known his condition.  The party has suffered greatly, and his family has lost one of the kindest parents imaginable."

          A Shelbyville special of September 21, to the Sentinel, says:  Last night  Patrick Campbell,  residing with his parents ten miles west of here, went home intoxicated and demanded that his father,  John Campbell,  give him money with which to continue his debauch.  The parent refused and was knocked down by the son, who was pummeling his head into a jelly when the father secured and opened his pocket knife, disemboweling his son and stabbing him twice in the breast, one thrust penetrating the left lung.  The son fell from the parent unconscious, while the father hurried for a physician, who has little hopes of the wounded man’s recovery.  The elder Campbell is well to do and has not been arrested.

          Patrick Campbell,  who was the victim of a father’s knife the earlier part of last week, died Saturday night of injuries received.  It appears that the son was drunk and that  John Campbell,  the father, only defended himself.  He has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in his sad bereavement.  The funeral and interment took place in Indianapolis Monday.
