Henry JOHNSON received a letter Tuesday evening from Fred E. JUSTICE of Clarkston, Wash., stating that his father died recently. Following is part of the letter dated the 8th: "Father died at 10 PM Sunday, Feb. 5, and was buried Tuesday afternoon. He had been ill ever since last September and during the past month had failed quite rapidly, the end being most peaceful."

Mr. Justice was well known here, being one of the principal men in the movement to have Greenwood incorporated as a city in 1891. He was elected the first mayor and served three or four terms in that office. He was the leading spirit in establishing the water works and other public works. He was one of the hardware firm of Justice Hartson in the latter '80's who built the brick store known as the Justice building, later buying Mr. Hartson's interest and conducting the business alone.


He was a member of Herules Lodge, I. O. O.F., and of Linden camp M.W.A., being the first venerable consul of the latter. He went west about seven years ago, locating Washington. Mr. Justice was about 60 years of age.
