Martin W. Mealey, a well known local photographer, died yesterday
afternoon at 1:15 o'clock at his home, corner of Washington and Seventh
Streets of heart disease. Though he had been ill for
two or three weeks and for months had not enjoyed real good health, it
was not believed his condition was especially alarming
until a few minutes or possibly an hour before his death.

After feeling badly for a few days, Mr. Mealey took to his bed a week
ago Friday but was up again on Monday and went to Tempe to
take some pictures at the Normal school. Returning he went to bed
feeling very tired and never left it again except for a few
minutes at a time. Tuesday night he coughed considerably but declared
yesterday morning that he never felt better in his life. He was always
cheerful and hopeful. During the forenoon yesterday he began to get
worse and finally Dr. Ball, a friend of thirty years standing, was sent
for but when he arrived the
patient was lapsing into unconsciousness.

Mrs. Mealey, who has been her husband's constant companion and nurse
during his hours of illness was overcome by the suddenness of the blow
and could hardly appreciate the change that took place between morning
and noon. They have no daughters, and only a single son, Will P. Mealey
of Seattle, formerly a resident of this city. He was informed by wire
of his father's
death and it is expected he will come as quickly as possible, though it
will take four or five days to make the trip. He had
not been heard from last evening and it is possible he is out of the
city and will not get the sad telegram until this morning.

The deceased was born at the head of St. Peter's Bay, Newfoundland, 59
years ago last October and was the youngest
of thirteen children, all of whom have preceded him to the grave. When
about a year old his parents moved to Boston and
later the family moved to Lowell, Mass. Thirty six years ago Mr. Mealey
moved to Colorado where he lived for twenty three
years, having suffered with asthma. He took quite a prominent part in
business and public affairs in Colorado in those days but deciding that
he had worn out the climate he came to
Phoenix about thirteen years ago. He was engaged in the photograph
business on East Washington Street almost from the time of his arrival
here until a few months ago when he
bought the gallery established by the late F.A. Hartwell on South Second
Street, conducting it until his death.
