Chief Engineer M. C. Walker, of the Chesapeake & Ohio steamer Virginia, died suddenly in Norfolk early Sunday morning. He was stricken with acute indigestion while on his way to the Virginia to make the early morning run to this city and the end came before medical aid could be summoned.
Mr. Walker had been engineer of the Virginia for a number of years and was widely known here. His sudden death came as a shock to his many friends in this city. He had been complaining of indigestion several days, but did not regard the attack as a serious one. He lived in Norfolk and the funeral will take place in that city.
