File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

John Gregory, who had edited the Warren Republican since 1870, dropped dead on the streets of Williamsport Tuesday forenoon while on his way from his home to his office. Mr. Gregory had been afflicted with rheumatic heart trouble for some time and death resulted from a sudden attack of the disease.

The editor of the democrat had known Mr. Gregory personally as a friend for sixteen years. While we differed in politics and each frequently told the other through the paper which he edited of the shortcomings of his political faith. John Gregory was too broad minded to allow political differences to bias his friendship. John Gregory always stood by his town and defended republican policies. You might differ from him and tell him so,b ut he was your friend just the same. Mr. Gregory was a man of strong convictions, and he was frank and open in expressing them. It didn't take long to find out where John Gregory stood on any public question. His paper always condemned vice and advocated those reforms which would make for the betterment of society.

Beside the widow there survive two sons, Frank of Goldfield, Nevada, Rupert of Williamsport, and five daughters, Miss Ethel, Mrs. Arthur Jackson of Indianapolis, Miss Grace, Mrs. Harry Cartlege of Colorado, and Miss Ruth. The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at two o'clock.
