FAMILIAR FIGURE
HAS PASSED AWAY

_________

Gus Woods, Old Dallas Resident, Dies
at City Hospital--Gave of His
Slender Stock.

     Gus Woods, a familiar figure in Dallas and a man who has lived here for the past forty years, died in the city hospital last night. For several years past, he had peddled shoestrings in the business part of the city. Pneumonia, caught from his exposed work during the present cold wave, caused the death of the man, who was sixty-three years old.
     Behind the humble life of the city peddler lies the lesson of a man who helped other unfortunates out of his slender stock. Gus Woods, it is said by those who knew the life of the man, did many little acts of charity, his slender stock of nickles being always ready at the cry of distress. His life led him to know the suffering of the city and it is said he never turned a deaf ear to it.
     The body of the old Dallas resident is being held at the funeral establishment of Weiland & McCreary, pending news from a sister living in Knoxville, Tenn.

Plowman, well known lawyer of Dallas, and a resident of the city for nearly forty years, was unable to stand a severe attack of pneumonia, which developed only last Saturday a week ago, and yesterday afternoon, at 5 o'clock, he quietly passed away at the family home on San Jacinto street. To add to the sadness of the death, Mrs. Plowman is also ill with an attack of pneumonia. It was stated last night, however, that she was bearing up well under the shock, and as her illness was not so aggravated, it is not believed that her condition is serious.

Interment will be made in the Greenwood cemetery. Active pallbearers will be O. C. Youngblood, Judge W. J. J. Smith, Judge J. C. Muse, John Leachman, John W. Young and D. Frank Carden.

Native of Alabama.
     Mr. Plowman was born at Taladega, Alabama, fifty-seven years ago. He was the youngest son of George P. Plowman, a well known resident of Alabama. His mother was formerly Miss Agatha Scales, who also came from an old family of Alabama. His first wife was Miss Laura Worth McClellan, daughter of General William B. McClellan. She died in this city in March, 1896. His second wife was Miss Estelle Hunt, daughter of the late Judge Hunt, who was a prominent member of the Dallas Bar. Surviving him by his first wife are three children, M. M. Plowman, who is an attorney and member of the Dallas Bar, Miss Daisy Plowman and Harding Plowman.

Came to Dallas in 1874.
     Mr. Plowman was a graduate of the University of Alabama, and later, of Harvard, where he made high average, especially in the law department, which he had chosen for his life profession. He moved to Dallas in 1874 and shortly afterwards, became a law partner of the late Judge Alexander White.
     Mr. Plowman was one of the most successful practitioners at the local bar, and enjoyed a very lucrative practice during his career. By many lawyers, he was regarded as one of the foremost attorneys of the Texas Bar and died amidst a busy career-actively engaged at work until a week ago yesterday, when he was stricken with the fatal attack of pneumonia.

DID CAR KILL
W. J. DOTSON?

_______

POLICE AND SHERIFF'S DEPART-
MENT INVESTIGATE CAUSE OF
MYSTERIOUS DEATH.

     With the cause of his death wrapped in mystery, W. J. Dotson will be buried at 11 o'clock this morning, Dotson was found unconscious Wednesday night on Garrett avenue, between Bryan street and Ross avenue. He was taken to St. Paul's sanitarium, but never regained consciousness, the end coming yesterday afternoon at 12:30 o'clock.
     Both the police and sheriff's departments are investigating the case. It was learned yesterday from the latter department that there is reason to believe the man was hurled to death by a street car. The street railway officials, however, deny that any accident happened there on the night of Wednesday, March 1. These officials declare their investigations have discovered that Dotson rode to the end of the line, getting off at Ross and Garrett. A theory advanced is that he as struck by an automobile while walking back toward Bryan street. It appeared as if the man had been dragged some distance. He was injured about the head and on the body.
     The funeral today will take place from the residence of W. E. Hearl, 3510 Junius street.
     The death of Dotson is made more pathetic by the fact that he is survived by a wife and two small children. As stated yesterday, the young wife was at her husband's side when death came, but he was unable to recognize her. The deceased was only thirty-one years old, and was a resident of Fisher, Texas.

IDENTITY OF UNKNOWN
MAY BE ESTABLISHED

_______

Jailer Peak, After Seeing Picture in
Times Herald, Declares Man is
Samuel Evans.

     Chief of Police Ryan, Assistant Chief Lane and County Jailer Boone Peak believe the unknown man, who dropped dead near the Union Depot some days ago, and whose body is being held at the Undertaking establishment of Weiland and McCreary, is named Evans. The officers viewed the remains yesterday, and all are of the opinion that the unknown is a man who was arrested several weeks ago and sent to jail on a theft charge. The accusation was in connection with the loss of a lot of wash from a laundry wagon, and a charge of theft was sworn out against a man named Evans by the driver of the wagon. Evans remained in jail about three weeks, and was later released when the charge was dismissed by Judge Whitehurst.
     Jailer Peak stated today that he saw the picture of the deceased in yesterday's Times-Herald and immediately recognized the features as those of a man who gave his name as Samuel Evans when lodged in jail. He also stated that he was originally from Iowa. Jailer Peak communicated with the undertakers and told them that he believed the body being held was that of the man who was released from jail on Saturday, February 25. The undertakers immediately wired the police authorities in several Iowa cities, but had received no further advices up to noon today.

UXORCIDE IS
CHARGE MADE

_____

WILLIS MUNDEN HELD IN CON-
NECTION WITH DEATH
OF WIFE.

     Charged by complaint with murder, Willis Munden, the young Dallas county farmer, whose wife, Alice, was found dead in the sitting room of their home last Wednesday morning, was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Looney of Cedar Hill, this morning, and held in $1500 bail to await the action of the grand jury. Mrs. Munden came to her death from the effects of a target rifle wound inflicted in the breast near, or through, the heart. It was at first thought that she had committed suicide. A scribbled note found on a table in the room, in which mention was made of an intermittent estrangement between husband and wife, lent to this theory.
     But, the circumstances of the case were investigated by the Cedar Hill peace officers. The upshot of the probe was the arrest of Munden by Constable D. E. Myers, yesterday afternoon.
     The state's prime contention in the prosecution of the case is that it would have been difficult for the woman to have shot herself by means of the rifle. The barrel of the gun, as shown by an examination of it in Justice Looney's courtroom this morning, is nearly three feet long. Assistant County Attorney Saunders, in handling his side of the case today, declared that the theory that the woman held the gun in place and pulled the trigger herself, was untenable.
     The testimony in the hearing showed that Mrs. Munden died some time between 6 and 10 o'clock last Wednesday morning. The husband of the woman had left home early and gone some distance from the house to get a load of wood. He returned about 10 o'clock, and , according to the story given by him afterwards, found the dead body of his wife lying across the floor. Munden contends that he did not enter the room immediately upon his return. He says that he merely opened the door, saw that his wife was dead and then rushed off to give the alarm to his brother, who was at work some distance from the house. The two then returned and examined the body together. The rifle, with an empty shell in the barrel, was found near the body. Apparently, Mrs. Munden had been dead some time when found
     The defendant did not take the stand himself this morning. Several other witnesses were put on, however.
     The Munden farm is near the county line. The defendant in the case is only about twenty-two years of age. His wife was eighteen. They had been married about two years.

Coroner's Verdict.

     "Pop" Woodard, the aged negro man who was found dead in the back end of his restaurant at Jefferson and Jackson streets some two weeks ago, came to his death from natural causes, according to the coroner's verdict returned by Justice of the Peace T. A. Work, this morning. The verdict says that death was probably due to acute indigestion.

Pinned Rosebud on Coat as He Told
Her Good-Bye -- Boy Found Al-
most Lifeless Body.

     Found in an unconscious condition in Forest Park, Oak Cliff, a little after 8 o'clock this morning, J. T. Cate, 225 South Marsalis avenue, died at 9:15 o'clock at his home as the result of carbolic acid poisoning. The apparently lifeless form of Cate was found by a small boy, who was passing through the park. He notified his mother, who, in turn, notified the police. Mounted Officer E. R. Williams answered the call. He realized, at once, that the man was in a serious condition, and sent in a call for Dr. W. M. Lively. An automobile was secured, and the man carried to his home, where the doctor did all that human skill could do to save his life. The fiery acid, however, had done its work, and death came in a short time after the doctor reached the stricken man.

Family Greatly Shocked.
     When Mr. Cate left home about 7:30 o'clock this morning, on the way to his duties down in town, there was no intimation that he would soon meet death. His wife pinned a red rosebud on his coat lapel and he told her good bye in the usual manner as he prepared to depart. When found about an hour and a half later, the rosebud was still in its place on his coat lapel. When his almost lifeless form was carried back to the home, shortly afterward, the wife and children were almost horror-stricken, as, from the first, little hope was held out for his recovery.

Body Lying in Grass.
     When found by the boy, the body of Mr. Cate was lying in a little grassy plot, not far from the main bridge over Cedar Creek, which meanders through the park. When Officer Williams arrived, the man was lying on his back. White foam flecked his face, and the officer quickly surmised that the man's condition was serious. Lying near the body was a piece of wrapping paper, usually used in drug stores, and a further search resulted in the finding of a two-ounce bottle. This had contained carbolic acid, but, it had been drained of its contents with the exception of a drop or two. The lips and throat were slightly burned by the fluid. The label on the bottle showed that the acid had been purchased from a drug store on East Elm street. The deceased only resided about two blocks from the park, and it was usually his custom to go through the park on his way to the car.

Injured Several Months Ago.
     Four or five months ago, Mr. Cate was struck by an Oak Cliff car and seriously injured about his head. At this time, he was attended by Dr. Lively, and to all appearances, the accident did not result in any permanent injury. Mr. Cate had, for the past ten years, been connected with the Famous Dry Goods Company, in the capacity of manager. He was still with this company when death claimed him this morning, and was held in high esteem by his business associates and friends.

Native of Tennessee.
     He was a native of Tennessee, having been born in Bluntsville [Blountsville?]. He was 49 years of age when death came. He had been a resident of Dallas for ten years, and besides a widow, he is survived by five children. They are Gilbert, John, Mary, George and Ellen.
     Funeral services will be held at the late residence at 10 o'clock in the morning, with interment in Oak Cliff cemetery.

DEATH CLAIMS
G. A. LEVI

_______

DECEASED WAS ONE OF THE MOST
PROMINENT JEWISH RESI-
DENTS OF TEXAS

______

NATIVE OF TEXAS
_______

WAS BORN FIFTY-NINE YEARS AGO
AT VICTORIA,
TEXAS.

_________

IN DALLAS TWO YEARS
_______

Since Residence Here Had Taken a
Prominent Part in Jewish Af-
fairs -- Well Known Over
the State.

     Death claimed one of the best known Jewish residents of Texas when G. A. Levi died this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. N. F. Wertheimer, on South Ervay street. For years, Mr. Levi had been prominent in the affairs of Victoria, where he resided for many years, and was also prominent in state affairs. He was a well known philanthropist and gave much in the name of charity. Up to a later hour this afternoon, no arrangements for the funeral had been made, but it was announced that the services would probably be held Sunday.
     Mr. Levi was a native Texan, having been born at Victoria on September 3, 1852, and was consequently just past the fifty-ninth mile stone of life, when death came this morning. He lived all his life at Victoria, up to two years ago, when he came to Dallas to make his home in this city. He established, and was at the head of, the firm of A. Levi & Co., investment brokers, with offices in the Linz building.
During his long residence at Victoria, Mr. Levi was prominent in the business affairs of South Texas and did much for his home city and always took a great interest in public affairs. Here, he was at the head of the banking firm of A. Levi & Co., which was recognized as one of the strongest institutions of its kind in the state. He was a past president of the Texas Bankers' association. Mr. Levi was also well known in fraternal circles and was Past Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias of Texas, and also past grand president of the Independent Order B'nai B'rith, district No. 7. When Cleveland was first elected president, Mr. Levi was a presidential elector from Texas.
     Since becoming a resident of Dallas, Mr. Levi has taken much interest in affairs of a charitable nature, especially among the members of his own people, and recently, when the Federated Jewish Charities was organized, he was chosen as president of the organization. He was quiet in his efforts at benevolence and was of a rather retiring and unassuming disposition. His death came as quite a shock to his many friends, as few of them knew that he was ill.
     Mr. Levi is survived by his widow, two sons -- Marcus and Leo -- who reside in Dallas; two daughters, Mrs. Nathan Wertheimer and Mrs. Lawrence Munzesheimer, also of Dallas; a brother, Charles Levi, and a sister, Mrs. J. K. Hexter, also of this city. He also has two other sisters, who reside at different places.
     Mr. Levi was a very wealthy man, some estimating his property and holdings to be worth nearly a million dollars.

[Editorial]

     The death of G. A. Levi is a most serious loss to Texas. In recent years, little known outside of a circle of friends who appreciated his efforts to help his fellow man, Mr. Levi was happy in his modest efforts to assist in relieving the sufferings of his less fortunate neighbors. Early in life, he made a fortune in by quiet industry. During his declining years, Mr. Levi spent that fortune in the name of charity. Trained as a business man from early youth, his philanthropy in later life was along the same practical business lines. Although reared in Victoria, where he lived for many years, and enjoyed the love and affection of his fellow citizens, he decided to come to a larger city, where his opportunities for charitable work offered a wider field. Although he had been a resident of Dallas only about two years, he was at the head and the most enthusiastic leader in the Jewish charitable organizations of this community. Often, charity is the stepping stone of some rich person to higher social position. Frequently, alms are selfishly given by clever climbers to earn for them a higher rung in the ladder of fame. Not so, with G. A. Levi. The best evidence was from one of his dearest friends, who telephoned The Times Herald yesterday of Mr. Levi's death. This friend said: "Don't say much about Mr. Levi. He would not want any extended write-up. Just put in a modest little notice that he has passed away. It would be his request."
     Mr. Levi was among those who believed in deeds of the living, rather than tombstone epitaphs.

NAIL PLANTED
DEATH IN BOY

_______

SMALL ULCER LEFT IN LUNG FROM
NAIL SWALLOWED RECENTLY
CAUSES DEATH.

     Wesley B. Murphy, the 5-year-old son of A. J. Murphy, died yesterday at the St. Paul Sanitarium, as the result of swallowing a "four-penny" wire shingles nail a little over three weeks ago. When the little fellow swallowed the nail, it passed into his windpipe and down into his lungs and did not cause him any pain at once. Later, the boy's parents decided to bring him to this city for an operation, and he was taken to the St. Paul's Sanitarium, where he was operated upon about a week ago. The nail was successfully removed, and for a few days, it seemed as though he would recover, as he was getting along nicely.
     Yesterday, the little fellow died suddenly from a hemorrhage of the lungs. A post mortem was held and it was discovered that the nail, while in the boy's body, had caused a small ulcer, which had continued to grow after the nail had been removed, and had eaten into one of the main arteries as it enters the lungs. The wall of the artery broke yesterday and the blood gushed into the little fellow's lungs, and he died very shortly afterward.
     The body was shipped to Kemp, Tex., today by George W. Loudermilk, where it will be interred from the home of the grief-stricken parents.

JOSEPH BEST DIED FROM INJURIES

TUESDAY NIGHT.

WHERE IS MAN'S MONEY?
_______

Sold His Business Short Time Before
Death -- The Money Was Not Found.
His Wife Died Four Days Be-
fore He Was Stabbed.

     It has been learned that Peter Pelegrini, who died early last Sunday morning, was stabbed in the head on Thursday night, October 5, and Dr. F. D. Roelkey states that this wound caused his death. Peter Pelegrini's wife died on Sunday morning, October 1, and was buried that same afternoon, leaving her husband with a small baby less than two years old. He was seen in the store just below his home, 1000 McKinney avenue, on Thursday afternoon with his baby in his arms, and on Friday morning, he came in again with his shirt quite bloody, and when asked what was the matter, he said that he and a friend had been drinking a little beer in his home and they had gotten into an argument, which ended in his friend stabbing him in the head with a stiletto.
     The knife did not enter his brain but slid down inside the skin. The wound did not seem very serious and Pelegrini did not have anything done to it until the next afternoon, when it began to pain him and he called a taxicab and went to the St. Paul's sanitarium. He gave his little baby boy to a Mexican woman who was a neighbor of his, "to keep until I get back." He never came back. Blood poisoning set in and he died just ten days after the wound was inflicted.
     It was rumored that some one tried to rob him a few days before the alleged stabbing look place.
     Pelegrini was quite well known in Dallas. He kept a fruit stand and small restaurant on the court house square for some years. His credit was said to be good at the Commonwealth National bank, where he kept his account. He sold his business for $750, it is said, about a month ago. This money was not found on his person or in his home. According to Donovan-McCreary Undertaking company, he had about $30 on his person when he arrived at the hospital. The whereabouts of the rest of his money is a mystery.
     Pelegrini has a brother in Chicago, and a sister somewhere in South Texas. Mrs. Pelegrini was an American woman and her father lives in Omaha, Neb. She also has a brother and a sister in Indianapolis, Ind. Her body will probably be disinterred and shipped to that place.
     Pelegrini made no statement to the doctors or any one, except some of his neighbors. To them, he said that he and his friend had a fuss, and he had been cut a little. It was evidently a man whom he knew and had been friendly with. He has many friends among his countrymen in this city.
     No arrests have, as yet, been made in connection with the case.

WHAT BECAME
OF MONEY

_______

PETER PELEGRINI HAD ABOUT $400
TWO DAYS BEFORE HE WAS
STABBED.

     It has been learned that Peter Pelegrini, the Italian who died at St. Paul's sanitarium last Monday morning, as the result of a knife wound in the head, did have money after his wife's death, and very shortly before he came to the hospital with the wound in his head.
     He went to St. Paul's sanitarium Monday night, October 2, which was the next day after his wife had been buried, with his face cut and wished it treated. After the wound was tended to, he took a large roll of bills out of his pocket and offered to pay for the treatment, and he was told that he had better stay there all night and he was put in a room. The roll of money that he had was estimated to contain about $400.
     It is said that when the nurse went to look for him the following morning, he had disappeared, and it was supposed that he left some time in the night.
     The following Friday, just three days later, he came back with the wound that caused his death, and at that time, he had practically no money with him. What became of his money, and how he got his death wound, are still a mystery. He was delirious most of the time at the sanitarium, and so far, as has been learned, he told no one about the affair in which he was wounded, except what was told exclusively in these columns yesterday.
     At the present time, the baby is being kept by a family by the name of Comby, 904 McKinney avenue. It is not known, as yet, just what will become of the baby, finally. If relatives do not take it, the juvenile court will take charge of it.
     Charles Gregory, a brother of Peter Pelegrini's deceased wife, arrived last night from Indianapolis, Ind. He stated to the undertakers that his sister had been away from home about seven years, and they did not know that she was married at all, until they were informed of the death of her husband by the Donovan-McCreary Undertaking company. He said that her family did not know anything about Pelegrini, they had never heard of him before. He further said that he did not think that her relatives would take the baby.
     The body of Pelegrini is being held by the Donovan-McCreary Undertaking company while they are trying to communicate with relatives of the dead man. As far as could be learned today, neither the police, detective or sheriff's department is making any effort to learn who inflicted the wound which caused Pelegrini's death.

MORE EVIDENCE
ON PELEGRINI

_______

CRIED OUT, "GIVE ME BACK MY
MONEY" -- SAID HE WAS ROB-
BED AND STABBED.

     Evidence to the effect that Peter Pelegrini was robbed on the night of October 5, was discovered this morning. He was in the habit of sleeping out on his porch with his little baby boy and after his wife died, he continued in this practice.
     Josephina Riojas, 1008 McKinney avenue, the Mexican woman with whom he left his little baby when he went to the hospital, states that she heard him shouting in the night; she says that he said distinctly, "give me back my money," and then there was no more noise. The next morning, he told her that he had been robbed and stabbed and showed her the mark left by the knife.
     Several of the neighbors say that he was apparently a good, law-abiding citizens, and it was the consensus of opinion that he was robbed.
     Josephina Riojas kept the little child from October 6, until last evening, when the juvenile court took it in charge. Mrs. Riojas' husband is a switchman and they have four little ones of their own and they could not take care of another one.
     This money that he father was known to have had a few days before he was stabbed, rightly belongs to this little boy, and if the authorities cannot restore it to him, he must be raised a pauper orphan and start in life handicapped with poverty.
     The Donovan-McCreary Undertaking company are still holding the body while trying to locate relatives of the dead man.

AGED WOMAN
ENDS HER LIFE

_______

WAS EMPLOYED AT ST. GEORGE
HOTEL FOR PAST EIGHTEEN
YEARS.

     Clara Wade, who has been in the employ of the St. George hotel for the past eighteen years, committed suicide this morning by taking carbolic acid about 11 o'clock. She died about an hour later.
     She was in the hall on the top floor of the old part of the hotel building, and in the presence of one of the negro maids and a lady guest, she drank the contents of a small bottle, which proved to be carbolic acid, and then asked the maid to get her some water quickly and went to her room and lay down on her bed. The maid, in passing her for the water, picked up the bottle and saw it was labeled carbolic acid, and, at once, called the hotel clerks and every one else connected with the hotel that she could find.
     Physicians were sent for at once, and although a doctor arrived in a very few minutes, she died in about an hour from the time of taking the deadly acid.
     Clara Wade was about sixty years old, and had not been in very good health for about ten years. She was a well educated woman and came of a good family. For the past eight years, she was kept in the St. George in honor of her past services for them. She was not given anything to do, but was allowed to come and go as she pleased and do what she wished.
     She was despondent ever since an illness one year ago, and it is thought that this despondency was the real cause of her taking her life. She has a daughter living, and the Chas. F. Weiland Undertaking company are holding the body pending instructions from her.

MAN DIED
VERY SUDDENLY

_______

ED TRACY DIED AFTER THREE
HOURS' STAY IN CITY HOS-
PITAL SATURDAY.

     Tracy Adams, whom the detectives say is Ed. Tracy, died at the city hospital Saturday afternoon, after being there about three hours. He was about forty-five years old and was a jockey for a tall blonde man, whose name is not known, and who has not been located since he hurriedly left the room where Ed. Tracy was found prior to taking him to the city hospital, where he died in a few hours.
     The authorities believe that the man was doped and robbed. On the opening day of the State Fair, four men went to 1113 Ross avenue, a rooming house, and asked Mr. Lambert, the manager, for a room. They said they were traveling for a Chicago publishing house and were working the fairs all over the country. The men were given the room, for which they paid $3 in cash, and said they would pay the balance the next day. The following Tuesday afternoon, they asked for a cot to be placed in the room for him to stay there with them. The proprietor then, according to his statement, asked them for the balance of their room rent and the new comer paid their balance and his own, also. That night, they had two visitors, and from that time, they continued to have visitors, having as many as twenty in their room with them; among them, this tall blonde man.
     On Friday night, the tall blonde brought Ed. Tracy with him. the men carried what was supposed to have been beer into the room at intervals nearly all night, and in the morning, when Mr. Lambert came to clean up the room, he said they would not let him in, saying they would take care of the room themselves.
     About 10 o'clock in the morning, one of the men went out and came back with Dr. W. B. Jackson, who has a drug store at the corner of Ross avenue and Griffin street, and he told them that Tracey would die. They then called the city ambulance and the man was taken to the city hospital. When the ambulance backed up to the door, was the first intimation that the proprietor had that anything wrong was happening. He then went to see who was sick or hurt and found his five roomers had all left and taken all their things with them, except a small glass cutter and a brass key. The man, Tracy, died three hours later and no trace of any of the other men has been found.
     The man who went after Dr. Jackson told him, that if Tracy did not get along all right, to notify Ralph Pope, Chicago, in care of the Chicago Tribune Tracy had been threatened with death, in case he did not ride his horse to victory on Saturday afternoon, according to Lambert, but he was dead before his number was called.
     Detective Austin is investigating the case, but, as yet, has not secured any information concerning any of the men who were with Tracy just before he died. He found a woman who was in the room with the men that night, but they could not be found yesterday.
     Dr. Jackson stated that the man died from an overdose of opiates, and was unconscious when he arrived. The Chas. F. Weiland Undertaking company are holding the body while trying to locate relatives of the man. No answer has been received from two telegrams that were sent to Ralph Pope, in care of the Chicago Tribune.

     Mrs. J. M. Langston, it is alleged, drowned in the Trinity river near Grand Prairie on August 20. Following the rescue of her body, it was suspected that the woman had been murdered. Bruises on her forehead led to this belief and an investigation followed. J. M. Langston was arrested on the following day, but claimed that she fell in the river and was drowned. At the time, he further claimed that she fell into the river, and that the bruises on her head were caused by striking on a log when she fell in the river. He further claims that he and his wife and baby were crossing the river on a drift, and that Mr. Langston was holding the small baby when they fell in the water. He rescued the baby and tried to rescue his wife. He saw at the time, that she could not be gotten out of the river by him and he ran to a neighbor's for help. When this help came, the woman was dead.

Occurred on Sunday Afternoon.
     This occurred on Sunday afternoon. On Monday, Langston was arrested and attended the funeral of his wife under guard. While at the funeral, or soon after, the defendant was informed of his father's death. Notwithstanding this fact, he was brought to Dallas and placed in the jail. He spoke very little of either his wife or his father's death, and did not ask that he be permitted to attend the burial.
Since being placed in the county jail, his mind seems to have gradually grown worse, and it has seemed, for many weeks, that the defendant had practically lost all of his senses. When called, he makes no move. Stranger do not catch his eye. No words can arouse him from the mattress on which he lies flat on his back in nature's nudeness with nothing to protect him but a cotton blanket.

Could Not Be Aroused Today.
     When seen this morning, all efforts to arouse him were to no avail. He was then smacking his lips, as though he were chewing on some cotton-like substance. He has apparently lost many pounds in weight and his eyes glitter with a peculiar look, which causes a sensation to all who see him.
     He has talked to no one in more than one month, and at the time of the killing of his wife, merely made the statement that she fell into the river and was drowned. At the time, however, he pleaded his innocence, and did until he had seemingly lost his mind.
     A short time after his arrest, Langston was given a preliminary hearing in Judge Grigsby's court in Oak Cliff. He was remanded to the custody of the sheriff without bail.

Mrs. Langston Talks.
     Mrs. Langston, in filing the complaint against her son this morning, declared that she believed he was innocent of the crime with which he had been charged. Speaking further, she said: "I wish it had been, so the poor boy could have been tried, for I know he would have come clear. They never could prove that he had ever done anything wrong toward her, and there is nothing to show that he killed her and then threw her in the river, as they charge. I would have been here sooner to make this complaint, but my health has been so that I could not get out."
     Following the filing of the complaint, Judge Young stated that the case could not be tried until one day next week. An order will be made to that effect this afternoon.

1912
VICTIM 13
IS RECORDED

______

NEGRO SHOT SUNDAY AFTERNOON
SUCCUMBS TO WOUNDS LAST
NIGHT.

     Cloyd Pierson, eighteen years old, who was shot in the leg by Cash Akes last Sunday afternoon, in a negro fight on Cottonwood street, near Ashland, died yesterday evening at his home, 2402 Alamo street.
     The death, according to attending physicians, resulted from blood poisoning, caused from the wound. Cash Akes, who was arrested shortly after the shooting by Motorcycle Officers Fitch and Lee, is, at present, locked up in the county jail, charged with assault to murder. The charge will be changed to that of murder this afternoon, in all probability.
     According to Cash Akes' story of the shooting, the Pierson boy called at his home on Cottonwood and Ashland streets, and attempted to pick a fight. Cloyd Pierson threw bricks at him, so Akes claimed.
     "A brick hit me on the head and I was dazed by the blow, and became afraid of my life. I grabbed a shotgun from the corner of the front room and took a shot at the boy. I did not mean to kill him."
     The death of Pierson jolts the grim Dallas county crime record for the year 1912 up yet another notch, the total of the killings now amounting to thirteen. This record constitutes thirteen violent deaths in fifty-three days, establishing a record of about one killing in every four days. Should this percentage of killings prevail during the entire 366 days of the year 1912, there would be ninety-two killings, or almost twice as many as recorded in 1911.

BOB DAVIS
SAYS LITTLE

______

DEED FOR WHICH HE WAS
RECENTLY CONVICTED.

     Bob Davis, convicted of second murder in connection with the killing of J. W. Whaley on January 29, declared this morning that an innocent man had been placed behind the bards, and that he did not know what he was doing when the killing occurred.
     Davis had very little to say this morning when seen by a visitor in his cell at the jail. He stated that he was not feeling as well as he had, but thought that he would feel better after a few days.
     Davis was charged in connection with the death of J. W. Whaley. the deceased was killed when Davis shot at his sweetheart, Miss Lydia Ahlfenger, on the afternoon of January 29, on Main street, near the entrance to the Grand theater. The jury in the case returned a verdict yesterday before noon after having deliberated for several hours. Davis was given twenty-five years. He has not yet been indicted on a charge in connection with the shooting of Miss Ahlfenger, but it was stated this morning that Judge Miller's grand jury would make a report tomorrow.
     About all that Davis said this morning was: "I am innocent and have been placed behind the bars for a deed committed when I did not know what I was doing."
     This morning, attorneys for Davis filed a motion for a new trial in his case. The motion will not be heard until tomorrow week.

1913
PAT ROBERTS
WELL KNOWN

_______

DALLAS MAN DIES FROM OVER-EX
ERTION AT FIRE AT RUSK
PENITENTIARY.

      Pat Roberts, fifty-five years of age, who died at the Rusk penitentiary fire from excitement, was a resident of Dallas. On a plea of guilty to keeping premises for gaming in Criminal Court No. 2, Judge Barry Miller presiding, he was sentenced to serve two years in the penitentiary. He had lived in Dallas for forty years prior to the time of his conviction and was well known and well liked.
     Despite the fact that Mr. Roberts, for part of his life in Dallas, was the proprietor of a gaming resort, he was held in high esteem and his word was as good as his bond to any one who knew him. He was of a kindly disposition and no one in want ever appealed to him in vain. News of his death was received with a great deal of sorrow in Dallas.
     The telegraphic dispatches are to the effect that during the progress of the flames, Mr. Roberts fought valiantly in an effort to extinguish the fire and his death was due to excitement and over-exertion from fire fighting.
     The body will be brought to Dallas and will be received by Undertaker Loudermilk. Funeral arrangements will be made later. Mr. Roberts was a native of Kentucky, but resided in Dallas many years. He was the owner of considerable property. A widow and several sisters survive him.

Governor Colquitt is Notified.

     Governor O. B. Colquitt was formally notified of the Rusk fire disaster Saturday morning, but, as his information was very meager, he could not make a lengthy statement. He said in a few words that the loss was very heavy, and that one inmate of the penitentiary, Pat Roberts, by name, had died during the excitement. When asked about an official investigation, the governor stated that the officials of the penitentiary had made no report, but was certain from what he had learned that no investigation would be necessary.

DEWITT TERRY BURNED TO DEATH
AND OTHER MEMBERS OF
FAMILY INJURED.

HOUSE OCCUPIED BY LUTHER TER-
RY AND FAMILY OF SEVEN
BURNS TO THE GROUND

_______

AROUSED IN A NICK OF TIME
_______

Party of Plano People Passing in Auto
Discover House in Flames -- Father
Burned in Rescuing
His Children.

     DeWitt Terry, aged 8 years, was burned to death and his father, Luther Terry, and a sister, Marie, are lingering between life and death as the result of a fire which destroyed the Terry home about 9:30 o'clock Sunday night. The father and daughter, with other members of the family, are now at Richardson, under the care of a number of doctors. The other three members of the family being more or less seriously injured. The house occupied by the Terrys was located on the M. B. Alkire farm, almost in the edge of Richardson. The body of the unfortunate boy was burned almost to a crisp and was not recovered from the ruins of the house until several hours after the structure had burned to the ground.

Narrow Escape of Family.
     The entire Terry family narrowly escaped burning to death, and had it not been for an auto party of Plano people, they would have all perished in their beds. The flames had considerable headway when discovered by the party in a passing auto who hurried to the house and awakened the occupants. Mr. and Mrs. Terry were asleep on the lower floor and could have easily escaped without injury, but their family of five children were asleep on the second floor and both rushed to the upper rooms through the blaze and smoke to rescue their offsprings.

Dropped From Windows.
     Mr. Terry succeeded in arousing all of the children in time to drop them from the second story windows to the ground below with the exception of DeWitt. The father was in the act of groping for the lad when part of the floor fell in and he was almost precipitated into the fiery furnace. To save himself from being burned to death, Mr. Terry was forced to leap from the window to the ground. He was not a moment too soon, as the entire structure collapsed and fell in a moment later.
     All of the injured were hurried to Richardson, where they were given attention by Drs. Guy Jones, C. E. Haner, A. F. Popperwill and Dr. Wyatt, of Plano.

Two Seriously Burned.
     The attending doctors stated Monday morning that two of the unfortunates, Mr. Terry and Marie, were seriously burned and liable to die from their injuries. It was at first feared that Mrs. Terry was also seriously burned, but later examination shows that the burns are not sufficient to result in death. Mr. Terry is burned about the lower part of the body, while the young girl is burned about various parts of her body. The other members of the family are suffering only from minor burns and bruises received in leaping from the upper windows to escape the fiery furnace.
     Indications are that the blaze originated under the stairway, but the cause of the fire is a mystery.
     The house was owned by M. B. Alkire of Dallas. It was a two-story building and was valued at about $1,500. The household effects of Mr. Terry were valued at about $1,000. It is not known whether Mr. Alkire or Mr. Terry carried any insurance.

KNIFE THRUST
KILLS WOMAN

_______

JEALOUSY WAS CAUSE OF GRIFFIN
STREET KILLING LATE THURS-
DAY EVENING.

     Louella Grace stabbed Lillian Hunter through the heart Thursday night in a fight which occurred on Griffin street, near Caruth. Both women are negresses and jealousy is assigned as the cause of the killing.
     Leaving the woman, whom she declares to have been a rival for the affections of her husband, lying dying on the sidewalk, Louella Grace calmly walked to the police station and surrendered to Captain Dean Arnold, who was then in charge.
     According to the story of the Grace woman, she heard that Lilllian Hunter had been friendly with her husband, Will Grace. She met the woman in front of 2014 Griffin street, and an argument followed. Louella wielded a long-bladed knife with deadly effect. Three times, she drove the steel into the breast of her rival. In one instance, the heart was penetrated. Lillian Hunter died on the operating table of the emergency hospital a few minutes later.
     The body of Lillian Hunter was transferred to the People's Undertaking establishment and it will be sent to Bonham for burial. Louella Grace was taken to the county jail pending the filing of formal charges of murder.
     The killing of Lillian Hunter brings the Dallas homicide record for the current year up to number nineteen.

YOUNG DALLAS MAN
WHO DIED IN VIENNA

 

DR. CHARLES J. WAGNER

FUNERAL SUNDAY
OF YOUNG DOCTOR

_______

REMAINS OF DR. CHARLES WAG-
NER REACHED HERE FRIDAY
NIGHT FROM AUSTRIA.

_______

A POPULAR YOUNG MAN
_______

Native Dallasite Who Died in Old Coun-
try Had Bright Future But Death
Intervenes -- Was Well Known
in This City.

     Accompanied by the mother, Mrs. L. Wagner, and sister, Miss Elma Wagner, the remains of Dr. Charles J. Wagner, who died at Vienna, Austria, on April 29, arrived in Dallas Friday night and were received by Undertaker Ed C. Smith & Bros. The funeral services will be held at the family home, 2917 Bryan street, at 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon. Rev. J. Frank Smith will conduct the services and interment will be in the family lot at Greenwood cemetery. Active pallbearers will be Dr. J. H. Black, Dr. W. B. Carroll, Dr. A. I. Folsom, Earl Haupt, E. R. Hambrick and U. C. Sterquel. Honorary pallbearers selected are: Drs. J. R. Smott, A. C. Graham, J. O. McReynolds, M. E. Taber, Dero Seay, Theodore Arnold and T. S. Gordon.
     Dr. Wagner was the son of the late L. Wagner, who was one of the pioneer German residents of Dallas. He was born in Dallas, February 26, 1887, and made this city his home all his life, except the time that he was away studying medicine, he having prepared himself for a medical career. He was a graduate of the Southwestern Medical University and also of the Johns Hopkins Medical College, and before coming back to Dallas to begin the practice of medicine, he took post-graduate courses in one of the higher medical institutions of learning in Cambridge, Mass. After graduating at Johns Hopkins, he was offered the position of bacteriologist in Panama by the government, but declined the position.
     Shortly after completing his studies, a throat trouble developed, which caused the young doctor to lose the almost total use of his voice. He spent some time in Denver and other cities in that section of the country in the hope of securing relief, but without avail. Six months ago or more, accompanied by his mother and sister, he went to Vienna to consult specialists and undergo treatment, in the hope of being permanently cured. A letter received by a brother the day before the cablegram was received, announcing his death, was written by the young man in a hopeful vein and expressed the belief that he was being helped by the treatment.
     The climate of Austria, however, it is said, affected his heart, and in his already weakened condition from the throat ailment, he was unable to withstand the shock attendant upon an electrical treatment for the throat, and died suddenly and almost without warning. The death came as a great shock to friends and relatives in Dallas. The young man was highly esteemed by all who knew him and a bright career would no doubt have been his, had not death intervened, as he was a studious and energetic young man who was bent on making his mark in the medical world.
     Besides his mother and sister, he is survived by two brothers, George E. and Louis W., both of Dallas. Emil Fretz, a member of the park board, and Charles Fretz, are uncles, and there are a number of other relatives in this city, as well as several in the old country.

DEATH CLAIMS
A DALLASITE

______

SHANNON ROSS WATKIN, FORMER
DALLAS BOY, DIES AT HOME OF
FATHER SATURDAY MORNING.

     After a lingering illness extending through the greater part of four years, Shannon Ross Watkin, aged twenty-six years, died at the family home, 2509 Ross avenue, Saturday morning. Mr. Watkin had been in Colorado for some time in hopes of regaining his failing health, but several weeks ago attending physicians declared that there was little hope for his life and he came home, desiring to die in his native town. The funeral will be held from the First Baptist church Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Burial will be in Oakland cemetery.
     The deceased, as a young man, received his education in the public schools of Dallas, later entering a preparatory school in Austin. In the fall of 1905, he entered the engineering department of the University of Texas, taking a full four-year course. During his time in the State University, he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta society and made many warm friends.
     After completing his engineering course, Mr. Watkin was connected with the Southwestern Telephone service, with which company he received many promotions. It was while he was in San Antonio, as assistant manager, that his health began to fail and he was forced to retire from business activities, going to Colorado to reside. He was the son of Will A. Watkin and is survived by his father, mother, two sisters, Mrs. Fred B. Ingram and Mrs. Charles N. McGaffey, Jr., and one brother, Robert Watkin.

TWO KILLED WHEN
CAR STRIKES BUGGY

______

WOMAN AND
MAN VICTIMS

_______

FORT WORTH INTERURBAN CAR
COLLIDES WITH BUGGY AT
JEFFERSON AND CLINTON.

______

NAMES OF VICTIMS
_____

MRS. ZENA KINCANNON WAS THE
WOMAN, MAN WAS BYRNE
BARROW, OF OAK CLIFF.

______

CARRIAGE IS SHATTERED
______

As Result of Collision Occupants of Ve-
hicle are Thrown High in Air.
Woman's Skull Crushed and
She Died Instantly.

     Mrs. Zena Kincannon was instantly killed and Byrne Barrow so terribly injured, that he died about two hours later at the Baptist Sanitarium, when a buggy in which the two were riding was struck by an incoming Interurban car on the Fort Worth-Dallas line about 9:30 o'clock Saturday night. The accident occurred at the Clinton street crossing of Jefferson street, just in the edge of Winnetka Heights. The buggy was smashed to kindling and the horse was so badly injured that Mounted Officers Fanning and Williams, who answered the call from the Oak Cliff police station, were forced to kill the animal.
     The woman was thrown high into the air and fell a considerable distance from the car tracks. She came down on the top of her head with such force, that her skull was smashed as through it was an egg shell. She was dead when horrified spectators reached the spot where she had fallen. Barrow was also thrown for some distance in the air and was picked up in the middle of the track. He was hurt about the head and various parts of the body. The police ambulance was hurriedly summoned and the unfortunate man was taken to the emergency hospital. Internes on duty realized that he was fatally injured and he was taken to the Baptist Sanitarium, where company surgeons attended him. Despite their efforts, death came in a short time.

BODIES OF UNFORTUNATES
HURLED HIGH IN AIR.

     The bodies of the unfortunate man and woman were hurled about sixty feet on the level and a number of feet in the air. So terrific was the speed of the car, that it passed directly under the man's body. He was picked up from the middle of the car tracks in a dying condition. The woman's body was picked up about twelve feet to the left of the car tracks. She breathed only once after the first man reached her side. Her head was crushed. Her eyes were knocked from their sockets and her brains were oozing from a gash over the left eye. She was more or less bruised all over the body and never spoke a word after the car had sped its deathly path.

Buggy is Demolished.
     The buggy was torn into bits. The wheels were picked up six hundred feet from where the vehicle was struck. The bed was smashed into atoms and portions were found along side the track for one and one-half blocks.
     According to Officers Fanning and Williams, the car was in charge of Motorman H. F. McIlwane and Conductor E. D. Rhodes. It was car No. 18, inbound, and, according to eye-witnesses, was moving at a rapid rate. It was not stopped until the middle of the second block had been reached.

Eye Witnesses Horrified.
     There were several eye witnesses to the accident. The first reaching the bodies of the unfortunate victims were Ralph Wade, 214 South Clinton street, and F. G. Moore, 117 South Clinton. They first rushed to the woman, and as they raised her head, she breathed her last, uttering a groan. She was picked up and carried to [a] nearby house. The ambulance was called and the woman's body taken to the morgue of the Geo. W. Loudermilk Undertaking company. She was lying about twenty feet from the body of the man. Her skull was mashed and crushed. Her feet were resting on the curbing. The woman's brains and blood were poured across the pavement in a ghastly stream.
     The man's head was resting on a cross-tie and one foot was on the steel rail. He was scarcely breathing when picked up by Mr. Moore and Mr. Wade. He was unable to talk and was injured more or less in all parts of the body. He never spoke after the accident.
     The city ambulance, as rapidly as possible, rushed the injured man to the emergency hospital. He was then carried to the Baptist sanitarium and died in a short time.

Tells of Accident.
     Speaking of the accident, F. G. Moore, who was sitting on his front porch, and who witnessed it, said:
     "I looked up and saw the bodies of the man and woman high in the air. They must have been thrown twenty feet upwards. The woman came down on her head, and when I reached her, she breathed her last. The man was hurled as high as his companion and the car passed directly under his body before it fell. He was picked up in the middle of the tracks and never spoke after I reached him."
     Ralph Wade told in substance the same facts about the accident. He and Mr. Moore reached the two bodies at practically the same time and both assisted in doing what they could for the dying couple.

Many Rushed to Scene.
     The crash was heard for blocks. Charlie Vaughn was sitting on his front porch three blocks away. He heard the crash and looked up in time to see that a serious accident had occurred. Others fully as far away, also heard the noise and, in a short time, several hundred people were on the scene. As quickly as willing hands could do it, the bodies were picked up and medical aid summoned.
     According to bystanders, one of the man's shoes and one of the woman's slippers with the man's hat were found in a heap a short distance from where the buggy was struck. A $10 bill, which the man is supposed to have carried, and some silver, were found about one hundred feet away.

Horse Knocked Ninety Feet.
     The horse attached to the buggy was torn loose from the vehicle and was knocked about ninety feet. Several bones in the animal's body were broken.
     Just how the accident occurred, no one seemed to know. It is supposed the couple thought they could cross the tracks before the interurban car reached them. The buggy was struck a central blow. That the speed of the car was rapid is seen from the fact that it ran a block and a half around a curve before being brought to a standstill.
     The body of the woman was taken in charge by Undertaker Loudermilk and prepared for burial. The woman was the wife of J. E. Kincannon, said to be an employe of the Oak Cliff car company. The body of the man was turned over to Undertakers Ed C. Smith & Bros., and prepared for interment. At a late hour Saturday night, no funeral arrangements for either of the victims had been completed.
     The remains of the woman will probably be sent to her native town, Fort Smith, Ark., Monday by Undertaker Loudermilk. It is there that her relatives live. She had been a resident of Dallas for four years. Sunday morning, her sister, who lives in Fort Worth, will come to Dallas and may accompany the body to Fort Smith.

OF MAN SHOT SATURDAY, BUT
DO NOT IDENTIFY HIM

     No positive identification was established, however, although several people declared that they knew who he was. Two police officers affirmed that they knew the man and gave his name.

STREET CAR
KILLS WOMAN

_______

LIZZIE PARKER IS CRUSHED TO
DEATH ON EAST MAIN
STREET LAST NIGHT.

     Caught on the fender of an east bound Main street car in front of her home, 2616 Main street, and dragged almost a block, before the car was brought to a standstill, Lizzie Parker, negress, received injuries about 10 o'clock Saturday night, which resulted in almost instant death. The car did not pass over the body, but it was moving so rapidly, that the woman received injuries which caused her death a moment after the car stopped.
     Patrolman Morris Parsons was sitting on the front seat of the car, which was open, and was a witness to the accident. He declared the car was moving at a rapid rate and was brought to a standstill as quickly as the efforts of the motorman would permit. The woman, he said, stepped in front of the car.
