Col. Thomas Potter, Jr.

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Dec. 2---Col. Thomas Potter, Jr., a wealthy oilcloth manufacturer of Philadelphia, died here to-night. Mrs. Potter, Wilson Potter, his son, and Mrs. Allen Earnshaw, his daughter, were at the bedside when the end came. When Col. Potter became dangerously ill a few weeks ago his son Wilson was hunting in Alaska. Couriers were hurried into the wilds and located young Potter. A race to reach the bedside of his dying parent was begun and finally ended by the son’s reaching here some time before his father’s death.
