Chas. McGuire Dies In Tacoma Friday

News was received here Saturday of the death Friday night at Tacoma of Charles McGuire, one of the principal owners of the General Lumber Company of Chehalis, which he was instrumental in locating here. He was 65 years of age and had been resident Western Washington representative of the Menasha Woodenware Company thirty years. This company is heavily interested in timber holdings in the Cowlitz river valley in central Lewis county and elsewhere. Death followed an extended period of ill health. Mr. McGuire was well known among northwestern lumbermen. He had lived previously in Everett for some years, and later in Seattle previous to moving his headquaters to Tacoma some months ago. Surviving relatives are the widow, Mrs. Louella McGuire, and a son Roy of Manila, where he is engaged in lumbering.

Mr. and Mrs. W. F. West, Dr. and Mrs. L. H. Meadows, Mrs. F. H. Jackson and Geo. A. Robinson attended the funeral, which was held under Masonic auspices in Seattle Monday.
