Representing the Twelfth Ward, Mr. O’Hearn was elected Alderman for fourteen years, but retired about eight years ago.

Mr. O’Hearn was a ready maker of friends and was a Democratic leader of his section of the city. He was made president of the Kentucky Colonels, a Democratic organization, when it was first organized, and had been re-elected every year since. He had never sought any other office except that of Alderman. He was a member of the orders of Elks and Red Men. The funeral probably will be held tomorrow, but definite arrangements will not be made until the arrival of his nephew, George McCran, from Pennsylvania. Mr. McCran is a traveling man and a telegram notifying him of his uncle’s death was sent yesterday to Redding. The Rev. Charles P. Raffo, pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Church, of which Mr. O’Hearn was a member, will conduct the services. Mr. O’Hearn was born in Louisville and was the son of Dennis and Mary O’Hearn.

He was identified with the Anderson-Nelson Distillery twenty-seven years before going to the Wathen Distillery. Surviving Mr. O’Hearn are two sisters, Mrs. J.
