FOUR DAMAGE SUITS
IN LOCAL COURTS.

     In the county court, the case of Katie B. Cocke vs. the Texas and Pacific Railway company is being heard. Plaintiff is the widow of O. N. Cocke, who lost his life at the corner of Pacific avenue and Griffin street by reason of an accident on the night of May 4, 1901. It is alleged that deceased was driving a wagon for the Wells-Fargo Express company on the night in question, and that one of defendant's cars backed into him with fatal results. He died four days later. Mrs. Cocke seeks to recover $429.80, which she charges was paid out for medical aid, etc. A suit for damages, growing out of the same accident, was filed in one of the district courts several weeks ago.
     Sarah Harper is plaintiff in the other damage suit, and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway company is defendant. The action is the result of the death of Jerry Williams, son of plaintiff, on Nov. 23, 1901, on the Katy track, near the crossing of Cedar Springs road. It is charged that had the railroad company exercised a reasonable degree of care, that deceased would not have lost his life.

DEATH OF CAPT. MAAS,
A PIONEER HOTEL MAN.

_______

After a Long Illness He Passed Quietly Away
Yesterday Afternoon--Events of a Sterling
Life Recalled.

     Yesterday, at 5 p. m., Capt. Louis Maas, one of the most prominent citizens of Dallas, expired at his home at 275 Browder street, after an illness of about three months' duration.
     Capt. Maas was a native of Mannheim, Germany, having been born there on January 19, 1848. He arrived in this country at the time of the famous draft riots in New York, which occurred during the early part of the civil war. Shortly after landing, he enlisted in the Federal army, serving with distinction all during the war. After the surrender of Lee, he enlisted in the regular army, being assigned to the western department, where he saw much service in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Western Texas as a scout, and became a captain in the sixth infantry.
     In the early seventies, Captain Maas came to Texas, entering business at Austin, at which place he married Miss Klugey.
     From Austin, he removed to Fort Worth, where he established himself as proprietor of the old Pickwick hotel, commencing a career which he followed up to the time of his death.
     At Fort Worth, he organized the uniform rank Knights of Pythias and was captain of the local organization for many years.
     On January 1, 1896, he came to Dallas and opened the Windsor hotel, which he ran until the day of his death.
     During the wild and stirring times on the frontier, Captain Maas participated in many of the most desperate expeditions ever conducted by the United States soldiers, distinguishing himself by many deeds of valor, and winning the friendship of Capt. S. A. McMurray, the celebrated Ranger commander.
     Captain Maas leaves, besides a wife to mourn his demise, two daughters and four sons. The daughters are Mrs. J. H. Dunn, of Fort Smith, Ark., and Miss Annie Maas of Dallas; the sons are Messrs. Max Maas, of Lewston, Mont., and William, Henry and Giles Maas of Dallas. His brother, Henry Maas, of Austin, arrived here last night, accompanied by Capt. Maas' nephew, Williams Maas, of Waco, and his brother-in-law.
     The remains will be shipped to-night at 8 o'clock on the Santa Fe to Austin, where interment will take place.

DEATH OF DR. ASHTON
EARLY THIS MORNING.

_______

Was One of the Most Prominent Physicians
of Northern Texas--Records of a Sterling
and Useful Life.

     This morning at 1 o'clock, Dr. Lawrence Ashton, one of the most prominent physicians of Northern Texas, died after a short illness of pneumonia. He was a native of King George county, Virginia, having been born there in 1845, and received his literary training in the University of Virginia and the University of Washington, D. C. At the latter college, he was a member of the graduating class of 1872. He was also a graduate of the University of New York.
      In 1887, he married Miss Nannie Green, daughter of Capt. Duff Green, and about five years later, moved to Dallas, where he has since resided. Dr. Ashton, previous to coming to Texas, occupied a high place among the members of his profession in Virginia, and on coming to this city, became an active worker in the State Medical association, of whose legislative committee he was once a member. He was one of the warmest advocates of the present law governing the practice of medicine.
     The Dallas Medical college partly owes its existence to his untiring efforts in advocating the establishment of a medical college in this city. Up until the time of his death, he was president of the above mentioned college and professor of the practice of medicine.
     He was a member of the Episcopal church and an Elk of high standing.
     In the death of Dr. Ashton, the community loses one of its most valuable citizens. He leaves besides numerous friends, a widow and adopted daughter to mourn his loss.
     His funeral will take place to-morrow at 10 p. m. from his residence at 455 Commerce street. The pall bearers have not so far been selected, but will probably be from among members of the Elk's lodge.
     Mayor Cabell, a close friend of Dr. Ashton, who is, at present, away on a trip, has been telegraphed for, and will attend the funeral.

COLONEL OBENCHAIN
DIED THIS MORNING

______

Old Citizen and Confederate Sol-
dier Passed Away Suddenly.

     Col. Alexander T. Obenchain, an old Confederate soldier and a well known citizen of Dallas for many years, died suddenly at his home, corner of Harwood street and McKinney avenue, at 8 o'clock this morning, For a number of years, Col. Obenchain had been afflicted with stomach trouble and his death was due to that this morning.
     Yesterday afternoon, the Colonel was taken slightly ill, and his condition grew worse towards evening. This morning, he became better, but he decided to summon a doctor. Dr. P. Holt was called a few minutes before eight o'clock, and after an examination of the patient, he prescribed a stimulant, as the Colonel's pulse was very low. The doctor stepped out to a neighboring drug store to get the prescription filled, and when he returned a few minutes later, he found his patient dead.
     Col. Alexander T. Obenchain was born near Danville, Virginia, May 16, 1826. He was reared in that part of the country, and when he became of age, he engaged in the newspaper business. With A. S. Cabell, a brother of General W. L. Cabell, as a partner, he edited the Danville Register from 1847 to 1849. At the outbreak of the Civil war, he enlisted in the Eighteenth Virginia regiment and fought for the Southern cause. During the early sixties, he came to Texas and settled in the west. About twenty-five years ago, he moved to Dallas and lived here until the time of his death. In former days, he was prominent in real estate circles, but in latter years, he has lived in retirement. He was active in the building of the Greenville branch of the Katy railroad, and the success of many other local enterprises were due, in part, to his efforts. He was a member of Camp Sterling Price camp and took an active part in all the sessions of that organization. He leaves one son, Harry Obenchain, an attorney. His wife died a number of years ago.
     The funeral will take place Sunday, and will be in charge of the members of Camp Sterling Price.
