A. H. Parker Succumbs to a Shock of paralysis Received a Year Ago.

Alexander H. Parker died yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock at his home, 30 North Battery street, from the effects of a shock which he received about a year ago. Since sustaining the shock Mr. Parker has been in feeble health, suffering from nervous and muscular troubles, but he was able to be around until about two weeks ago. At that time he took to his bed and gradually grew weaker until the end came yesterday.

Alexander H. Parker was born in Barton May 25, 1835. He came to this city to reside in 1877, and for a number of years conducted a wholesale shoe business with the late D. A. Brodie, the firm name being Brodie and Parker. He was a man of good business capacity and unquestioned integrity and these qualities were frequently recognized by his fellow citizens who bestowed upon him many offices of trust and responsibility. He served one term as alderman from the 3d ward and for six years was chairman of the Board of Water Commissioners. The office of city assessor he had filled for five years, serving in that capacity at the time of his death.

Mr. Parker leaves as near relatives a wife, and two children, Eugene P. Parker of this city and Mrs. C. M. Sturgis of Hinesburgh, besides five brothers and four sisters. The funeral will occur tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from the house. Rev. J. E. Mead is to officiate and the interment will be made in Lake View cemetery.
