Stephen P. Collver, of High Valley, Oregon, died at the hospital at Salem, Oregon, Saturday, March 21, his death being due to a combination of diseases. Mr. Collver was born in Canada, March 2, 1843 and was at the time of his death 65 years and 19 days old.

When a lad about twelve years old, he, with his parents, moved to Iowa for a short time; then to Missouri, staying there about three years, going later to Iowa, where his young manhood was spent.

On September 13, 1866 he married Delilah O. Barnett, and to them seven children were born-six of whom are living, one little daughter of five years passing on to the great beyond about fifteen years ago.

In 1891, he with his wife and three children came west to Idaho, living there about four years. He joined the Methodist church about a year after living in Idaho.

In 1898 he came to Oregon, which State he has made his home.

He leaves to mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father, a wife and three children, Mrs. L. L. Stringham, of La Grande; Mrs. H. H. Ash(illegible), of High Valley; Mr. Clark Collver, of Summerville, all near his home; and three daughters-Mrs. J. C. Brown, of Pennsylvania; Mrs. J. B. Fye, of Iowa, and Mrs. Chas. Hardman, of California, and many dear friends.

Mr. Collver was dearly loved buy all who knew him and always had a kind word or joke to give.

[Owing to the crowded condition of the Republican this week, we are compelled to omit a poem on Th. death of Mr. S. P. Collver, that has been sent in, but may produce it later,]
