Grain Operator Passes Away In Spokane Hospital

Many of this community will be sorry to learn of the death Monday night of M. J. O'Neill of Spokane, pioneer Inland Empire grain operator and president of the O'Neill Grain company, whose holdings include business property in Ritzville. Mr. O'Neill, 79, passed away at Sacred Heart hospital where he had been a patient for two weeks. For the past 48 years he had made his home in Spokane.
He was born in Matterville, Minn., Aug. 1, 1866, and spent his early years there. He went to Montana in 1880 and was there for four years when he moved to Burke, Ida., and conducted a general store for about a year. He returned to Minnesota in 1885 and was associated with a brother at Graceville in a general store for a number of years.
In 1889 he went to Mapleton, N.D., where he began his carer in the grain business. There he was married to Miss Mary Jane Higgins, Sept. 16, 1889. They went to Lewiston, Idaho, in July, 1890, and O'Neill was manager of the Northern Pacific Elevator in Walla Walla. After two years he went to Tacoma Warehouse and Elevator company. He was transferred to the company's Spokane office in 1898. He had been a Spokane resident since then.
In 1906 he organized his own grain business under the name of the O'Neill Grain company. He was president, H. C. Gemberling was secretary-treasurer. They were the only stockholders. During the years O'Neill owned several wheat ranches and a fruit ranch in the Horse Heaven country. His holdings now are wheat ranches near Mabton and Endicott. He has operated a number of grain elevators throughout the Inland Empire. He was one of the best known grain operators in the Pacific Northwest. He was a member of the Spokane City and University club, the Calispel Duck club and of St. Augustine's parish.
Survivors are two grandsons, Theodore Huetter, Jr and Mortimer Huetter, both at the home; a son-in-law, Theodore Huetter, Seattle, and a nephew, Dr F W O'Neill of Spokane.
Rosary was said at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the home. Requiem mass will be sung at 9 a.m. Friday at St. Augustine's Catholic church with the Rev. S.P. Buckley as celebrant. Burial will be in the family plot at Fairmount.
