E. E. Kiddle Died Tuesday Morning

State highway commissioner Edward E. Kiddle died suddenly at his home in Island City at 4:30 o’clock Tuesday morning of this week. Death was due to acute indigestion and neuralgia of the heart.

Mr. Kiddle was one of the best known men in Oregon, having represented Union and Wallowa counties in the state senate and since the death of highway commissioner Burgess, he has served by appointment of Governor Olcott as a member of the state highway commission. He had returned from the national capital where he had been in conference with highway commissioners from different states only a few days before his death.

Mr. Kiddle was a native of Illinois, born at Warren in 1862. He was married to Miss Emma Walling at Hamilton, Mo., in 1884 and came to Oregon two years later. Settling at Union he engaged in the milling business. Later he removed to Island City and has since been one of the firm of a milling company at that place.

Two sons, two daughters and the widow are the immediate surviving relatives. Funeral services were held at Island City Thursday afternoon and interment was in the cemetery at that town.
