DEATH OF CAPT. LOTHROP
As an Orator He Gained Considerable Fame
Captain Lothrop, well known in northwestern Iowa as an orator, attorney and
Civil War veteran, died at his home in Sioux City of senility on Tuesday.
Mr. Lothrop was born in Dover, Massachusetts, October 9, 1836. When he was
16 years old, his parents moved to Illinois, where he worked on a farm until
September 1859, when he entered the Chicago Law School. He studied under
Prof. Henry Booth until the war broke out in April, 1861.
With the first call of the war, Mr. Lothrop responded and enlisted as a
private in Company I, 11th Illinois infantry, as a 90-day man. He
reenlisted in August in Company E, 26th Illinois infantry, was elected
orderly sergeant and then promoted to the rank of second lieutenant. He was
successively appointed first lieutenant and then captain of the same
company. The latter rank he held during most of the war.
After the close of the hostilities, he returned to Ottawa, Ill., where he
took up the practice of law. Before coming to Sioux City in July, 1884, he
practiced for a short time in Champaign, Ill. In Sioux City he formed a
partnership with R. M. Dott, and opened a law office. President Harrison
appointed him collector of internal revenue for the Third district of Iowa
in July, 1889, and he held the position for many years.
In the past few years Captain Lothrop, after the firm of Lothrop & Dott had
been dissolved, maintained law offices in the Iowa building. He specialized
in drainage cases and made a successful record in handling them.
Captain Lothrop was a staunch Republican, and took an active interest in the
welfare of his party. He served one term in 1896 in the state senate,
representing Woodbury county. As an orator he was far famed, and he was a
state campaigner in the interest of McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft.
The family was gathered at the bedside when death came. He is survived by
his widow, two sons, Merton, of Kansas City, Mo., and Ralph, of Sioux City,
and two daughters, Mrs. Gertrude Howe, of San Antonio, Tex., and Miss Hattie
Lothrop, of Sioux City.

Surrounded by her children and relatives, receiving every consolation that
loving hearts can give, Mrs. Delia L. Mohan, wife of the late John T. Mohan,

Through a lingering illness of almost two years, she has borne her cross
with patience, fortitude and hope. The end came peacefully on Monday

GEORGE JEFFERS MARRIED
Former Plymouth County Attorney Wins a Bride
A press dispatch from Baltimore to the Sioux City Journal announces the
marriage of George Jeffers, formerly a lawyer in this city and a county
attorney for several years.
A wedding in which many Iowa and South Dakota people will be interested took
place today in this city. The contracting parties were George Alba Jeffers
and Miss Ethel Van Sant.
Mr. Jeffers is an attorney and prominent Republican politician in the
Rosebud country of South Dakota, his residence being at Dallas. He formerly
lived at LeMars, Iowa, and was county attorney of Plymouth County. During
the last year Mr. Jeffers has had a number of very important cases before
the Indian Bureau and general land office, in the Interior Department at
Washington, and these have required his constant presence in the capital
city. It was while Mr. Jeffers was engaged on business in one of the
departments of government that he fist met Miss Van Sant, who was a member
of a party of young Virginia women on a visit to Washington.
Miss Van Sent lives in Westmoreland county, Virginia, a county which was the
birthplace of three presidents of the United States: Washington, Madison
and Monroe, and of which Lighthorse Harry Lee and his famous son, Robert E.
Lee, were natives. The Van Sant home is at Kinsall.
Today’s ceremony took place at 11 o’clock this morning in a private parlor
of the Caswell Hotel, in the presence of the immediate relatives of the
bride and a few close friends of the groom, who came over from Washington.
A wedding breakfast followed the marriage ceremony. This was served in a
private dining room walled with roses.
Mr. and Mrs. Jeffers departed this afternoon for California, where
arrangements have been made for them to take an automobile trip that will
last until autumn. They will be supplied with a camping outfit and expect
to spend the entire time on their wedding trip out of doors.

once the first court house in Plymouth County.
At Seney a Fourth of July program was rendered by home talent beneath the
pines while red, white and blue floated in the breeze. Each song and speech

the diamond where they LeMars Merchants and the Seney ball team clashed over
the national game. Batteries: For the Merchants, Clabaugh and Weidenfeler;
for Seney: Lancaster and Lancaster. The Merchants pushed three scores over
in the first two innings. That ended their scoring. Pitcher Lancaster’s
slants and curves were driven by a brawny arm and proved too dark for the
Merchants. He received a royal support from his catcher brother and had good
backing from his team mates. Both teams played a good clean game and the
Merchants were given a welcome back. Score, 13 to 3 for Seney.

AN ACCIDENTAL DEATH
Albert P. Noem station gent for the I.C.R.R. was drowned last Wednesday evening in a pond east of the Floyd river on the Blumer farm. He and Cecil Armstrong were in bathing and not being able to swim were wading in shallow water near the shore but in some manner Mr. Noem ventured too far out and stepped in a hole ten feet deep and went down. Four times he came up and each time his companion tried to save him but owing to his youth and inability to swim he was unable to do so. His companion ran over to George Ferguson’s home and gave the alarm. A large crowd soon gathered and did all they could to get him out but on account of the depth of the water it was an hour and a half before the body was recovered. Coroner Wiltgen of LeMars was notified and he came at once. The body was taken to the S.F.Fulton home where it was made ready for shipment to his mother and sister at Lake Preston S.D. The deceased had been station agent here but a few months and during this time made many friends—in fact he had no enemies. He was a favorite among the boys, the members of the T.S.O.T. society and the James ball team.
