    Prominent Business Man, Clubman and Former Political Leader Answers Last Call
    Broonchial Trouble Cause
    Held Distinction of Being An Acting Thirty-Third Degree Member of the Scottish Rite.

    Henry C. Adams Sr., familarlly known to his firends as "Harry" Adams, one of the most prominent buisness men of Indianapolis, a leader in clud lie and the masonic fraternity, died last evening at 7 o'clock at his hom, 1412 North New Jersey Street.

    He had been forced to give up attention to his business affairs several weeks aho, but had been able to take short walks until about two weeks ago. Death was due to bronchial trouble.

    The death of Mr. Adams closed a long and active career, during which he did much for the city, whose bret interest he always held close to his heart. In industry his name was linked to national enterprises, many of which testify in his ability as a stone contractor, which vocation he followed actively until a short time ago. In fraternal circles he had held high postitions, having enjoyed distinction in most of the highest offices in the Masonic order. As a man of the home he held the admiration of his neighbors, who recall his talent as a charming raconteur of his experineces both in the civil war and in political life in Indianapolis.

    Mr. Adams was born in Indianapolis April 8, 1844. When President Lincoln gave his call for volunteers at the outbreak of the civil war, her tried to enlist, but was found to be too young to carry a musket. He obtained a bugle and in a short time was able to sound the calls. Then he presented himself before the recruiting officers again and was enrolled as a bugler. He always was in the thickest of the fray and served throughout the campaign, four and a half years, after which he was dismissed from the service with the rank of captain, having reached the official postition of first lieutenant while in active service

    ONCE ACTIVE IN POLITICS

    As soon as he returned to Indianapolis he allied himself with the Republican party and became conspicuous in all campaigns, serving on all campaign committies of note. Whe he returned from the war he was made deputy sheriff under George Parker and held the same position the following term under Col N. R. Ruckel. In 1874 Mr. Adams was nominated for the office of sheriff on the Republican ticket, but was defeated. In 1880 he ran again, however, and was elected. In 1884 Mr. Adams was a delegate to the national Republican convention in Chiicago, when James G. Blante was nominated for the presidency
    Mr. Adams was on of the few veteran Republican politicians now living who during the eighties, when politics was at white heat in Indianapolis, formed what was known as the "big six", a group of men considered the Republican leaders at that time.

    With the exception of two years Mr. Adams spent all his time in Indianapolis after the war. A few years ago he undertook the building of the gigantic reservoirs at Nashville, Tenn., which kept him away from Indianapolis two years. He furneished the stone for this project from the Flatrock quarries st. St. Paul , Ind., which he owned. A monoumet to his memor may be found in Indianapolis in the new Centeral Avenue Bridhe; which he assisted in building.

    HIGH IN MASONIC ORDER

    Mr. Adams held many high positions in Masonic circles. He was a past eminent commander of the Indiana Commandery, Knights Templars. He also was an acrive thirty-thrid degree member of the Scottish Rite. Another thirty-third degree man, Samuel B. Sweet, died recently. Mr. Adams held high, offices in all Scottish and York Rites bodies. He became a Mason about 1868. He was a member of the Raper Commandery Drill Corps many years ago, which is noted for its national prizes.

    All trade and commercial circles of Indianapolis found a ready supporter in Mr. Adams. He was a member of the Indianapolis Board of Trade and a charter member of the Commercial Club. He also had been connected with the Columbia Club since its organization. As a story teller he was noted in the state, and his narratives always were pointer and applicable as illustrations in his conversations. This made him a favorite in all clubs.

    Mr. Adams also was active in church affairs, having been a member of the First Baptist Church many years. He was kindly disposed to all worthy charities and contributed freely.

    He is survived by two sons and two daughters. They are Bertrand N. Adams, 129 West Twenty-first street; Henry Clay Adams Jr., 103 Pratt Street; Mrs. S. A. Johnston, 132 Central avenus, and Mrs. W. D. Hacker, 1418 Central avenue. Mrs. Adams died in 1904.

      Henry C. Adams. Every branch of business connected with the building industry is important, for the demand, both private and public, is constantly on the increase, and its supplying is furnishing the opportunity for the exercise of abilities in this direction of some of the most energetic and substantial men of the country. Especially is this true in a city of the magnitude of Indianapolis where the needs of its citizens and the requirements of public service, far exceed the capacities of the concerns given over to building activities. One of the men who has made a name for himself in this direction is Henry C. Adams whose large business interests center in the supplying of paving materials of all kinds throughout the city and its vicinity for a wide radius. He was born at Indianapolis, in 1875. His greatgrandfather, Doctor Adams came to Indiana in 1818 and located at New Bethel where, in addition to carrying on the practice of medicine, he became the owner of a large tract of land, much of which still remains in the family. His son, Reuben Adams, grandfather of Henry C. Adams, came to Indianapolis at an early day, and for a number of years was prominent here, and at the time of his death, in 1860, held a court position, which had been his for a long period. The father of Mr. Adams of this review, also Henry C. Adams, was a well-known figure in business and public life here, and for a number of years operated the large stone quarries at Saint Paul , Indiana. Throughout the war of the sixties he served in the Union army. Growing up in the city of his nativity, the younger Henry C. Adams attended its public schools, and later Culver Military Academy, from which he was graduated in 1895. Returning home he went into the stone business with his father, and until 1909 was overseer of the Saint Paul quarries, during this period gaining a thorough knowledge of the business. In 1910 he went into his present undertaking, and has steadily progressed, winning the confidence of the trade and the public. He is a Republican in his political views. Fraternally he has been advanced in the Scottish Rite in Masonry, and he also belongs to the Mystic Shrine. He is a member of the University, Indianapolis Country, Hoosier Motor and Hoosier Athletic clubs. During the late war he devoted two years to Red Cross work. In 1899 he was married to Miss Mary Pickens of Indianapolis, and they have two children: Henry P. and Samuel. Both he, and his wife are valued members of the Presbyterian Church.
