Morning Oregonian, March 9, 1904:
"Edward C. Warner, of Montesano, Wash., died at Good Samaritan Hospital at 8 o'clock last night, after an illness of less than 10 minutes.
"The dead man arrived here three days ago and secured a room at the New Grand Central Hotel. While in the barroom yesterday evening he became suddenly ill and before anyone could reach him fell in a spasm on the floor and did not regain consciousness. He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, where he died five minutes after he arrived. The cause of death is not known and an autopsy will very likely be held today. When here several months ago Warner was drinking considerably, but during this visit drank nothing but soda. He was suffering from asthma, but this is not thought to have had anything to do with his death.
"Coroner J.P. Finley took charge of the case. In Warner's trunk, at the depot was found a complete shoemakers outfit, together with newly mended shoes and leather, which leads to the belief that he was a cobbler. An expired insurance policy in favor of his sister, Leone Kelsey, presumably of Aberdeen, Wash., was also found in the trunk.
"Warner has been here on several occasions. He recently returned from Iowa, in which state was his former home."
