DELAWVARE, Ohio, March 30-11. S.
Senator Frank B. WIlis, died here to-
night. He had been sitting on the
platform in Gray's chapel, where 2,-
500 persons, .there to listen to the
city's native son speak in his own
behalf as presidential candidate, when
hie arose, walked -to an antechamber,
and succumbed at 9:05 p. in.
A physician was called from the
audience and pronounced Senator
Willis dead. Cerebral hemorrhage
was named as the cause of death.
The senator's tragic ending came at
the largest political meeting Dela-
ware ever had witnessed. The whole
city had turned out in homage to
him. A band, a parade, and red fire
had .been provided to make his ap-
pearance an auspicious occasion.
The Buckeye Republican glee club
of Columbus, on the platform, was
singing farewelleas Senator Willis
drew his last breath.
As soon as the word of his death
was voiced around the hall, the crowd
became excited and left the hall hur-
riedly. Some, however, were so
shocked by the news that they sat
glued to their seats.
The police and national guardsmen

Senator Frank B. Willis' death
is to be regretted by all who
knew him," P.rof. Joseph R. Hay-

the Ohio senator. "He was a
convincing speaker, a strong
supporter of the 18th amendment,
and his death will greatly effect
