GENERAL E. M. POPE DIES OF HEART DISEASE Remains Will Arrive From Grand Mar- ais Today; Burial at Mankato. General E.M. Pope, for many years a resident of Mankato, but for two years a citizen of Grand Marais, died at that place yesterday of heart dis- ease. He was 67 years of age, and had been in poor health for some time. Mr. Pope was prominent in Demo- cratic political circles during the cam- paign of 1896, and was a warm sup- porter of the free silver movement which preceded the nomination of W. J. Bryan for President. He supported John A. Lind for governor, assisting materially in securing for him a large vote in Blue Earth county. As a re- ward for party services, Gov. Lind ap- pointed him state bank examiner and he held the position until Gov. Van Sant took office. Mr. Pope was a soldier of the re- bellion, going through the four years' war and was warmly commended for bravery. He became a member of the Grand Army, and was subsequent- ly identified with its work in the state. The remains will arrive this morn- ing from Grand Marais and services will be held at the Stewart's undertaking rooms at noon. The body will be shipped to Mankato, the former home of the deceased, for interment.
