The Rev. Daniel Hess Dropped Dead In An Atlanta Street Car

ATLANTA, Ga., Dec. 4 Rev. Daniel Hess, formerly of Cincinnati, but who for three years has been living in Atlanta, dropped dead in a street car on Peters Street yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock. The deceased, with his wife, who was formerly a Miss Green, and Mrs. G.H. Cress, has been to Westview cemetery and were returning to the Majestic hotel where they were living when death came suddenly upon the minister. He was seated in the rear of the car while his wife and Mrs. Cress occupied seats a short distance from him. Suddenly, Mr, Hess was seen to fall to the floor, and death ensued almost instantly. The deceased was a Primitive Baptist, and was known to be a man of considerable means. A few weeks ago, he was tendered a church in this city, but declined the offer on account of his health. He has one brother who resides in Ohio.
