JACOB SHADE DEAD.
Ex-County Treasurer the Victim of Heart Failure.
Deputy Treasurer Jacob Shade died of heart failure at his home in this city Saturday morning at 3:30 o’clock. The attack came upon him at midnight and he died three hours later. The deceased had been subject to heart trouble for several years, but was in his office the entire day prior to his death, apparently in splendid health. Mrs. Shade was alone with her husband when the fatal attack came upon him. Dr. Strickland was summoned but he was beyond medical aid.
In 1896 Mr. Shade was elected county treasurer by the populist people and was re-elected to the same position in 1898, his last term expiring in July, 1900. Since that time he has filled the position of deputy treasurer under his former deputy, Alfred Luelling, who succeeded him in office.
During the civil war Mr. Shade served in Company F, 58th Ill., Vol. Infantry, and was present during the siege of Mobile.
The deceased was born in Ohio in 1825, and came to Oregon in 1880. A wife, two daughters, Mrs. Hassler and Mrs. Wan, of Hillsboro, and son Charles Shade, of Alaska, survive him.
He was buried in the city cemetery Monday morning at 9 o’clock under the auspices of Meade Post, G. A. R. of which he was a member. The services were conducted from St. Paul’s Episcopal church, Rev. P. K. Hammond officiating. Many beautiful floral offerings were contributed and a large body of friends attended the funeral.
Mr. Shade was held in high esteem throughout the county and his death produced profound regret.
