    [A. P. Fonda Dies Suddenly - He Passes Away In Agony From Heart Disease At The Coates - A Well Known Citizen of Kansas City, Prominent for Many Years - Something About His Life - His Famous Switch Enterprise - The Funeral - A. P. Fonda died suddenly of heart disease at the Coates hotel at 11 o'clock last night. He was well known as a real estate dealer and as the promoter of the Fonda Switch, a railway terminal on the levee, for which the franchise ordinance was pending in the city council many months. Mr. Fonda has been subject to indigestion and a year or two ago took a course of treatment for heart disease. Last night he attended an A. P. A. meeting at the corner of Sixteenth and Penn streets. Supper was served about 10 o'clock and Mr. Fonda ate oysters among other things. He began to feel badly and calling a carriage started for home. While on his way he stopped at a drug store and purchased some simple remedies and telephoned the family physician, Dr. J. D. Robinson, to meet him at his home, No. 211 Garfield avenue. He resumed his journey, but became worse so rapidly that he was forced to stop at the Coates house. Charles Davis, who was with him, led him into the lobby where he sat down, suffering fearful pain. He was soon removed to a bed in one of the sample rooms and Dr. E. T. Phillips who happened to be in the house, attended him, but help came too late and fifteen minutes after he entered the house he was dead. Mrs. Fonda was sent for and came accompanied by Dr. Robinson, but was too late to see her husband alive. Cornoner Langsdale held a postmortem at Stine's undertaking establishment today and decided that an expansion of the aorta was the immediate cause of death. Mr. Fonda left two children, Guy, aged 15, and Enid, 7 years of age. Besides his realty, Mr. Fonda had a paving coal mine at Calhoun, Henry county. In this state and was a large owner in a silver mine in Colorado, which until the repeal of the Sherman law, yielded very large returns. He also owned considerable railway stock. Mr. Fonda was about ten years ago in the wholesale grocery business on Delaware street, between Fourth and Fifth streets, in partnership with the late Jarvis Johnson. He was subsequently in the wholesale commission business under the firm name of Fonda & Biddle, and also Fonda & Gump. Of late years he had been engaged in promoting large enterprises and in the pursuit of his occupation crossed the ocean many times and negotiated financial paper in London and continental Europe. He was very successful and amassed a large fortune. Mr. Fonda served in the federal army during the war and was said to have been the youngest captain in the service. After the war he represented the United States government for several years in special war department business in Europe and was much of his time in France. He grew tired of the army and returned to the United States, studied law and was admitted to the bar but abandoned this profession for business pursuits. He was a great lover of fast horses and at one time owned considerable racing stock. Arrangements for the funeral are being made today. It will probably take place Monday afternoon. Mr. Fonda was a member of the Kansas City chapter of Masons. His home, at 211 Garfield avenue, had recently been added to and rebuilt and was one of the most elegant in the city. He was highly esteemed as a friend and hundreds called today to offer condolence. 1893-11-18 Kansas City Star]
