Dr. W. W. Waddcll, an eminent phys
ician of Dushore, known to every man,
woman and child in-Sullivnn county and
fora number of years a prominent figure
in Republican politics, died on Monday
at 6 p. 111. in Philadelphia where he had

in 1888, when he defeated the strongest
party man in the Democratic ranks, the
late Hon. Josh Lull, for the office of Hcp

fully in the Legislature during the years
1889 90 and could have returned had lie
