JAMES POLLOCK-At Millburn, Ill., as the result of a runaway accident.
James Pollock, ever to be remembered as the Lake county man who going bankrupt in a partnership firm years ago, took the burden of clearing obligations upon himself and after many years succeeded to a great extent, was killed, yesterday in a fall from his buggy near the Bean Hill school near Antioch, and Lake county loses a former representative in the legislature at Springfield. He was also the best checker player in the county.
Killed Almost Instantly.
Pollock was driving along pretty rapidly down a steep hill and as he turned into a farm yard near the Bean Hill school he was thrown from his buggy and to the ground alighting on his head and being killed almost instantly.
Charles Christianson, in front of whose house the accident took place, brought the fatally injured man to his residence, but he died without ever regaining consciousness. The accident took place between four and four thirty. The shock of the death is felt all over the county. Dr. W. W. Warriner attended the victim and later the body was removed to Millburn, where the inquest was held at noon today.
