    Washington Post, 15 February 1910, page 1:
    TALKS ON COST OF LIVING.
    Mr. Yeagle Tells Labor Union of Progress of League.

    The effect of the high cost of living on the condition of the laboring man, and the efforts the National Anti-Food-Trust League is making to bring down the prices of foodstuffs, were explained at a meeting last night of the Central Labor Union in Typographical Temple, by J. Lynn Yeagle, president of the board of managers of the league. Mr. Yeagle said no class of society is more interested in the prevailing inflation of values than the laboring class. He outlined the progress the Anti-Food-Trust League has made since its organization a few weeks ago.

    A resolution was adopted denouncing the verdict of guilty against the United Hatters of North America, in the suit brought by Loewe & Co.

    Washington Post obituary (see sources):

    John Lynn Yeagle Dies in Lake While Boating
    Philadelphia Newspaper Man was Formerly Member of the Post Staff.
    Stroke Causes Death
    Special to The Washingtin Post.

    Philadelphia, Aug. 1. -- John Lynn Yeagle, well known Washington and Philadelphia newspaper man, was drowned late today at Alcyon Park lake, Pitman Grove, N.J., following a stroke suffered while boating. His body was found floating at the lower end of the lake two hours after he had hired a rowboat. Coroner Burkett believes that Mr. Yeagle suffered a stroke as he rowed around the lake and that he fell into the water from the skiff.

    Mr. Yeagle, who was a member of the Public Ledger staff, came here from Washington; he was 54 years old.

    Mrs. Yeagle and three of their children, who had motored to Atlantic City, were notified of the tragedy tonight. Mr. Yeagle and his family had been occupying their summer hour at Putman Grove.

    Besides his wife, he leaves four children, Jean, 20; Frances, 12; Charles, 6, and a married daughter in Kentucky. Funeral services will be held Wednesday with burial in Clyde, Ohio.

    Mr. Yeagle became a member of The Post's editorial staff in 1913, after having been employed by the Washington Herald. He was city editor of The Post for four years and later he was Sunday editor. Before coming to Washington he was engaged in newspaper work in Chicago.

    Mr. Yeagle was born in Ohio and was graduated from Oberlin university. He was a member of the Episcopal church and the Masonic fraternity. He was a charter member of the National Press club and its first treasurer.
