R. L. (Dick) Miller, proprietor of the White Front Café, was found dead in his room at 1:30 o'clock.
Mr. Miller did not open his restaurant at 6 o'clock this morning as usual, and his friends becoming alarmed this afternoon broke into his room in the Osage boarding house and found him dead. He had not been drinking, nor were there any signs indicating suicide.
He was last seen about 11 o'clock last night sitting on the curb in front of the rooming house. At that time he complained of feeling bad and had a very severe headache. Earlier in the day he had made the same complaint to some of his friends and said that he was bilious and feeling poor.
Dr. W. W. Rucks was called about two weeks ago to Millers room as Mr. Miller had gone into a fainting spell. Dr. Rucks, after Miller had recovered, examined Miller very carefully to see if there were any symptoms of heart failure and reported none. He states from the description of Millers ailments of yesterday, and having a severe headache and being bilious, that his death was probably caused by a hemorrhage of the brain.
Mr. Millers wife is in Wichita visiting relatives, leaving here the first of the week at that place. Deceased was the son-in-law of ex United States Marshal W. D. Focett.
Coroner Patterson is unable to state the cause of death and an inquest will be held this evening at 4 o'clock. Miller was about 40 years of age. His relatives have been notified.
