T. J. O'Meara received a telegram today advising him that this morning his brother, D. D. O'Meara, died of heart trouble at Ellensburg, Washington. The deceased was 42 years or age. He was born in Canada, but the greater part of his active life has been spent in the United States. He was with the Union Pacific from 1865 till about 10 years ago, when he entered the service of the Northern Pacific. He has been in Washington several years. He visited Mr. O'Meara this city several times, last in 1887 when on his way to a convention of the Order of Railway conductors. The funeral will be held at Ellensburg, where his nephew is in charge of the remains. Mr. O'Meara asked by wire that it be forwarded here, but the reply that came back this afternoon advised the other course and it will be complied with. Our townsman has general sympathy in his bereavement.
