LOWNDES, ex-Gov. Lloyd (abridged)

EX-GOVENOR LOWNDES PASSES AWAY SUDDENLY ~ His Death From Heart Failure While In Apparently Good Health ~ GREAT LOSS TO THE STATE OF MARYLAND ~ An Event Which Comes As A Great Surprise Today To His Many Friends Here and In The Country At Large--He Knew His Condition And Met His Fate With Tragic Suddenness.
The death of ex-Gov. Lloyd Lowndes comes as a great surprise today to his many friends in the State of Maryland and in the country at large. He died after a tepid bath, and fell while being rubbed down by his valet, expiring instantaneously. He had valvular affection of the heart and knew his condition. On Saturday evening he seemed to have a premonition of the fate impending. Sunday morning he told his valet in the bathroom that he had passed a sleepless night. One of his last act before retiring was to write an obituary notice of a deceased friend to be published in the Cumberland paper he owned.
A SHOCK TO THE STATE ~ Ex-Govenor Lowndes' Death Felt Even Beyond Its Borders.
[Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun]
Cumberland, Md., Jan. 8.--Hon. Lloyd Lowndes, former Govenor of Maryland, died suddenly this morning at 9:30 o'clock at his home on Washington street, Cumberland, from organic heart trouble, in the sixtieth year of his age.

Brown, his faithful colored valet, was rubbing him down when he fell forward on his face and expired instantaneously. The funeral will take place Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock from Emmanuel Protestant Episcopal Church. Interment will be in Rose Hill Cemetery, Cumberland.

LOWNDES, Richard Tasker (abridged)

Expired Yesterday Afternoon at Four O'clock. ~ IN HOSPITAL, CLARKSBURG ~ Was Put Under an Anaesthetic Preparatory to an Operation Upon an Injured Hand--Son of Ex-Governor Lowndes and a Native of This City.
Mr. Richard T. Lowndes, Jr.,[sic] died yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock in St. Mary's Hospital, Clarksburg, W. Va. When death overcame him Mr. Lowndes was under an anaesthetic given him for the purpose of operating upon him. Mr. Lowndes went to the hospital Thursday morning and was place on the operating table at 10:30 o'clock. The anaesthetic was then given him, but before the operation could be performed the action of the heart became alarming and every effort was then made to restore him, but without avail and about four o'clock in the afternoon he was pronounced dead. A few weeks ago Mr. Lowndes met with an injury to his right hand and it did not properly heal. It was for this that he was to be operated on. Mr. Lowndes was a son of former Governor Lowndes, of Maryland, who died suddenly at his home in this city last January. He was born in Cumberland in November 1871, and was therefore in his thirty-fourth year. Mr. Lowndes spent his boyhood days and early manhood in Cumberland. He graduated at Yale University and afterward went to Clarksburg, where he became associated in business with his uncle Mr. Richard T. Lowndes, who has large commercial and manufacturing interests in West Virginia. Since his residence at Clarksburg Mr. Lowndes became prominent in business, politics and society and his prominent family connection made him well known throughout his native and adopted states. Mr. Lowndes married Miss Mary McDowell, of Danville, KY. His widow and one son, Master Richard Lowndes survives him, as does also his mother, Mrs. Lloyd Lowndes, of this city, and four brothers, namely, Mr. Lloyd Lowndes [his twin], vice president of the Second National Bank here; Major Charles T. Lowndes, Mr. W. Bladen Lowndes, of Mt. Savage; Mr. Tasker Lowndes, and Miss Elizabeth Lowndes of Cumberland.
[Two paragraphs re: travel of brothers omitted]
It was decided this afternoon to have the funeral of Mr. Lowndes take place in this city Sunday afternoon at ?? o'clock with burial in Rose Hill cemetery. The body will arrive here on the No. 12 tonight and will be kept at the Lowndes residence on Washington street until the hour for the funeral. Major Chas. T. Lowndes and Mr. Lloyd Lowndes will probably be here.
