DANIEL HART ENDS LIFE WITH BULLET

Ex-County Commissioner Ill and Despondent

WIFE DEAD TWO YEARS

Daughter Sees Father With Gun, but Is Unable to Prevent Firing of Shot

[Photo with caption: “D. V. Hart. Ex-County Commissioner Ends Life With Bullet]

Failing health and grief over the death of his wife made life too burdensome for Daniel V. Hart, 78, ex-county commissioner, and he ended his troubles yesterday with a bullet from a .32 caliber revolver. The tragedy occurred at 9:20 A. M. at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nettie Mason, 41 West Russett street, where he had made his home for several weeks. He died at St. Vincent’s hospital two hours later.

Mrs. Mason told Police Inspectors Powell and Nelsen that her father’s mind had been failing since the death of his wife two years ago and a paralytic stroke had crippled his right limb.

Garage Used as Bedroom

Since leaving his own home at 1677 Fiske street to live with his daughter, he had steadfastly refused to sleep in the house, but slept in an unoccupied garage at the rear of the Mason residence. On several occasions he told neighbors that he “wished he could die.”

Mrs. H. Wedding, Mr. Hart’s granddaughter, who lives with her mother, Mrs. Mason, saw her grandfather hobbling about the garage and asked if there was anything she could do for him. He pointed the gun at her and she ran screaming into the house.

Mrs. Mason opened a window and called, “Father, what’s the matter?” “I’m going to shoot myself,” she said he replied, and before she could intervene, fired a bullet into his head.

Police were called and the dying man was taken to the hospital in a Buick ambulance.

Daughter Lives in Canada

Mr. Hart is survived by another daughter, Mrs. C. Collier, Vancouver, B. C.

The body was taken to the St. Johns Undertaking company rooms. Mr. Hart was a members [sic] of the United Artisans and the Odd Fellows, and the latter will have charge of the funeral.

Hart Elected in 1910

Mr. Hart served one term as Multnomah county commissioner from 1911 until 1915. He was elected during the 1910 primary fight with the slogan of “let the people rule” and ran against the regular republican ticket nominated by convention. The entire ticket on which Hart ran was elected. He served with Judge T. J. Cleeton, W. L. Lightner, Rufus C. Holman.

The commissionership was the only public office Hart held, and, after leaving office, he suffered financial reverses and took a job as bridge tender in Portland.
