Chicago, Aug. 20.--Walter SHOEMAKER, former president of the Illinois Club and head of the lumber firm of Walter SHOEMAKER & Co., was stricken with apoplexy at Glen View Golf Club Saturday and died within a few minutes.
A physician said that death had been practically instantaneous, and that the stroke had probably been hastened by the heat and the exertion attending the game.
Mr. SHOEMAKER had been in the lumber business for many years. He was born in Montgomery County, N.Y., September 10, 183_9.
