The death of Patrick D. Duggan occurred at his home in this city Sunday morning [August 26] at 3 o'clock from complications of diseases. Although in poor health, his condition was not considered serious until very recently.

Mr. Duggan was a native of Indiana. In 1880 his family moved to the Dakotas and in 1885 he came to Sprague, Wash., where he was employed by the Northern Pacific railway.

In 1894 he returned to Indiana and was married to Miss Mary A. Farrell. Mr. and Mrs. Duggan came to Washington and made their home on a farm near Sprague, later moving to Kendrick, this county. About 10 years ago the family came to Moscow, Mr. Duggan having charge of the pumping station of the Northern Pacific until his death.

The members of the family surviving are Mrs. Duggan and five daughters: Mary, city librarian; Katherine, a student in the university; Sarah, Edna, and Bessie.

The deceased was a member of the Catholic church, the Knights of Columbus and the A.O.U.W. As a citizen he was held in high esteem by all.
