Death Put An End To His Sufferings

(From Wednesday's Daily)

After a long illness and after patiently awaiting the end for over nine
weeks in the hospital of the Consolidated at Humboldt, the summons came
to James H. Farrell yesterday morning at 6:30 o'clock.

The passing of this well known mining man, was received by his many
friends in this city with expressions of the deepest sorrow, and
although the end was expected, the hope was entertained that he might
rally and survive.

"Jack" Farrell, as he was familiarly known to nearly every resident of
the county, was a man of exceptional personality, being open-hearted,
sacrificing, an able man in his business dealings and an exemplary
citizen. He followed mining as an operator and to his credit it must
be said his generous disposition and his estimation of the man who
toils gave him a wide range of friends in any undertaking he with which
he was identified.

Drifting from camp to camp he later located in the McCabe field, where
at the time of his death he was the general manager of the Arizona
Bonanza Company. This property was attaining prominence through his
ability and foresight as a practical miner. On it he had centered all
his efforts in late years.

The fatal affliction was an intestinal tumor that baffled medical skill
here and elsewhere.

The deceased was born in Utica, New York, 59 years ago. Surviving are
his widow, who was devotedly at his side during the long illness, his
daughters, Mrs. O. L. Davenport, Mrs. T. E. Childers, of Humboldt, Mrs.
Charles Egge, of Hermosa, Cal., and his son, R. F. and John Peel, a
nephew, of Humboldt.

The last rites will be observed this morning at 9:30 o'clock, when high
mass will be said at the Catholic church, and at 2 o'clock this
afternoon the funeral will take place from Ruffner's chapel.

Transcriber's note: Mr. Farrell is buried at the Citizens Cemetery in
Prescott, Arizona.
