Mrs. T.T. Greer—Wife of the Governor-Elect Passes Away at Omaha—Both Houses of the Legislature Adjourn Out of Respect for the Departed—News reached the city early today that Mr. T.T. Geer, wife of the governor elect of Oregon, had suddenly passed away at Omaha this morning. The news was received with universal expressions of regret at the Capital City, as Mrs. Geer was a woman of the noblest qualities of mind and heart and had looked forward with pleasant anticipations to occupying the position of first lady of the commonwealth.

Both houses of the Oregon legislature adopted resolutions of condolence and adjourned until 3 o'clock p.m. out of respect to her memory. The president of the senate and speaker of the house were instructed to telegraph a joint message of condolence to Governor-elect Geer on his bereavement at Omaha.

Hon. Will R. King, Mr. Geer's opponent for governor, who is in the city, was among the first to send a message of condolence to the governor–elect, upon the untimely death of his wife.

At 11 a.m. Speaker Carter announced the death of the wife of his distinguished predecessor, saying that the governor-elect would have the sympathy of every one in Oregon.

Mr. Curtis offered a resolution of sympathy, and moved an adjournment in honor of her memory.

Some Details. (By Associated Press to The Journal)

Omaha, Oct. 13—Mrs. Nancy Geer, wife of T.T. Geer, governor-elect of Oregon, died at the Barker Hotel this morning from disease of the heart. A physician was summoned, when the attack seized her, but she was beyond help. The remains will be sent to Salem, Oregon, this afternoon. Mrs. Geer was for some time affected with heart trouble. When she arrived in the city Tuesday she was tired and this probably brought on the fatal attack, although she was about the hotel yesterday.
