An Abolitionist's Son Dead
Hardin Speer Died in Denver While Taking a Cold Bath
Denver, Feb 27
Hardin Speer, the youngest son of the Kansas abolitionist, John Speer, dropped dead in the bathroom of his home this morning while taking a sponge bath. The shock of the cold water upon his weakened heart was the cause of death. He was 43 years old.

Hardin Speer was a printer from his boyhood. His father, John Speer, with the famous JOHN BROWN OF OSAWATOMIE, and JAMES H LANE, has been credited with having a great deal to do with starting the civil war.

John Speer for thirty-six years was editor and owner of Lawrence, (Kas.) Tribune and a rab'd abolitionist. Before his death, several years ago, John Speer wrote a biography of James H Lane and a history of Kansas.
