pointed Captain Delaney Chief Factory
Inspector, in which position he served
until January, 1913, when he resigned,
his resignation being due, it was al
leged, to his assertion that he had in
his possession a confession made by the
late John H. Sanderson, implicated in
the Capitol grafting, in which certain
men "higher up" were mentioned, and
which he declined to make public.
Since his retirement from office Cap
tain Delaney had been at the head of
a chemical firm in Washington, D. C.,
having removed his family to that city
about a year ago.
From the time he resigned his place
as Chief Factory Inspector Captain
Delaney began to fail in health, and
when he came to Harrisburg last Janu
ary to attend the inauguration of Gov
ernor Brumbaugh his friends were im
pressed by the astonishing change in
his physical appearance. He returned
to Washington and a few weeks ago
his condition became such that his
friends knew his last hour was fast
In the past few weeks many friends
from Pennsylvania called upon him,
and they found him suffering very much
from his illness, but the same bright
and cheery man as of old.
Captain Delaney was a member of
the Loyal Legion of Pennsylvania and
Post 58, G. A. R., of IHarrisburg. He
is survived by his widow, formerly
Miss Kline; two sons, Charles H. and
Roy, and a daughter, Helen, who were
with him at his death.
