L.H. MANNEN IS DEAD.
Passed Away at His Home This Forenoon
Leslie H. Mannen died at 11 o’clock this forenoon at his home, corner of Sixth street and Galena avenue, of cirrhosis of the liver, after an illness lasting several weeks. He had been expected to die for several days, and the community was in a measure prepared for the announcement that the end had come.
L.H. Mannen was born in Mason county, Kentucky, in December, 1841, and was therefore past 59 years of age. He was raised on a farm and lived there until he came to Galena six or seven years ago. On coming here he engaged in the livery business and owned the barn on Seventh street at the time of his death, as well as his residence property corner Sixth and Galena avenue. He ran for county commissioner in 1898, as the Democratic nominee, being defeated by Hal Peters. Mr. Mannen was an uncompromising Democrat, of the genuine Kentucky kind, and was active in the local ranks until more recent years. He was a faithful friend, a genial associate, a man of honor, integrity and honesty. He was plain and unassuming, a man of strong convictions, a close discerner of right and wrong—quick to commend the one and condemn the other. His friends were numbered by the score and they will deeply feel that loss which his death occasions. As has been the case with countless others, his worst enemy was himself.
Mr. Mannen was proud, but he was modest. When the writer sought material for a biography of him for publication in The Times, when he was a candidate for commissioner, he said “There isn’t much to be said about my life,” and then he added “there isn’t much to be ashamed of, either.”
He was married in 1869 and leaves besides his wife, six children—Hal, John, Ike, Cush, Turn and May. Four of the children are at home, while John and Turn are away—one in Arizona, and the other in Iowa, at points not known by the family.
The funeral will take place Saturday at 10 a.m. and be in charge of the Masonic order, to which the deceased belonged.
