DEATH CALLS CAPT. J. W. ENGLISH. PROMINENT CITIZEN OF ATLANTA
Captain James W. English, former mayor, pioneer, financier, and for many years known as Atlanta's foremost citizen, died suddenly at 9:30 o'clock Sunday night, at his home, 40 Cone Street. The end came quietly while he was talking with his daughter, Mrs. Gordon P. Kiser. He was 88 years old.
Captain English had been in feeble health for several months. His indomitable energy however, prevented him from giving up his business and he was at his desk in the Fourth National Bank, of which he was chairman of the
board, every day until last week.
His death was not the result of any acute trouble. It was merely the wearing out of a machine which had seldom known rest.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon in Atlanta.
