HON. P. E. CHASE DEAD
Hon. P. E. Chase of Mechanicsville died suddenly in Connecticut at the home of his brother-in-law, Rev. Mr. Bugbee, Monday of last week. The funeral was attended on Thursday afternoon from his late residence. His age was 57 years. Mr. Chase was an enterprising business man and was the largest manufacturer of children's wheelbarrows and wagons, his trade extending to all parts of the world. He was a true Christian gentleman, an active member of the Methodist church and a citizen beloved by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed in the community. Mr. Chase served in the regular army some five years and was a captain in the war of the rebellion three years, where he received severe wounds. He was a senator from Rutland county two years ago. He was a brother-in-law of Mrs. Church Tabor of Essex.
