Capt. E. G. Clark Dead.
He Was One of Rome’s Richest and Most Enterprising Citizens.

Rome, Ga., March 29. – Capt. R. G. Clark of this city died at 1 o’clock this afternoon from apoplexy.

Capt. Clark was one of the best known citizens of this part of the state.  He has had a very successful career and has amassed a large fortune, which will be divided among his heirs.  He leaves a wife and four children.  One of these is a daughter, Mrs. E. E. McGill who resides in St. Louis.

Capt. Clark was prominent in every circle at Rome.  He was president of the Howell Cotton Company, and in addition to this did a large private banking business.

During his life his friends would very  often appeal to him to offer for political position, but he preferred the private pursuits of life and never yielded to the temptation to seek office.
