Public Life.

Wounds in War Between
States Turned Career
to Insurance.

     Col. John Timothee Trezevant, who would have been 89 on his next birthday, died at a local hospital at 2:30 a. m. Sunday, after an illness of several weeks. He lived at 2925 Cedar Springs.
     Col. Trezevant came to Dallas in 1876. He was born Oct. 18, 1842, Shelby County, Tennessee, of which Memphis is the county seat, the son of Brooks Roberts Trezevant and Rachel Godwin Trezevant. Both his parents were born in Virginia. His father was descended from one of the famous Huguenots who fled France to America 1685 at the time of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. His mother's ancestors came from England and settled in Virginia during colonial days.
     Col. Trezevant's father died when the boy was only 15 years old, and young Trezevant had to go to work, but he was well advanced in his studies, and two years later, was proficient in the practical work of his profession of civil engineering. He was placed in charge of a division of railroad under construction and supervised the work of 500 men.

Wounded During War of States.
     At the outbreak of the war between the States, he was engaged in building the Memphis & Little Rock Railway. Although only 19 years old, he enlisted in the defense of the Southland as a private in Company A, Fourth Tennessee Infantry, and afterward, in Cheatham's Division, Polk's Corps. At the battle of Shiloh, where Gen. Albert Sydney Johnston fell, Col. Trezevant was desperately wounded by two bullets, one of which struck him in the throat and plowed its way through to the back of his shoulders, while the other shot shattered his left leg at the knee.
     After being in bed nearly a year from his wounds, Colonel Trezevant was discharged from the army in 1863, but the following summer, he got back into the fray as a Lieutenant of Engineers, and served until he surrendered at Greensboro, N. C., in April, 1865.
     He returned to civil life, but on account of his wounds was unable to perform the active work necessary in his engineering profession, and he became a clerk in an agricultural implement store.
     In 1867, he entered the insurance business. The following year, while he was living in Memphis, the Carolina Life Insurance Company was organized with Jefferson Davis as president. The former head of the Confederacy asked Colonel Trezevant to become general agent for the company in Arkansas, and he moved to Little Rock. He first came to Dallas in 1876, and at first, was a member of the firm of Dargan & Trezevant, managers for the Fire Insurance of Philadelphia, and La Caisse Generale of France. He had been in the insurance business continuously since that time. The firm name was changed to Trezevant & Cochran in 1888.
     Colonel Trezevant attained prominence for his many activities in Dallas. As president, he directed the building up of the Dallas Hunting and Fishing Club, the first club of its kind in Dallas County. He served as head of that organization for ten years. For ten years, he was president of the Dallas Golf and Country Club. He was president of the Security Mortgage and Trust Company, the Dallas Consolidated Street Railway Company and various small real estate corporations. For two terms, he was president of the State Fair of Texas, and for twelve years, was chairman of the executive committee of the fair. For many years, he was vice president of the City National Bank and also of the Street Railway Company, and was a director in both of these companies.

One of Leading Citizens.
     While he was active in business life, Colonel Trezevant was generally regarded as one of Dallas' most progressive and leading citizens. When the matter of establishing The News in Dallas was up, he took a prominent part, and was most instrumental as far as Dallas' interests were concerned in bringing The New to Dallas. He was, for a time, a member of the board of directors.
     He was one of the first Dallas citizens to become interested in golf and was active in establishing the Dallas County Club. At the time of his death, he was the only honorary member of the club.
     Colonel Trezevant had traveled extensively, both in this country, and in Europe. He was very fond of general literature, and possessed what was said to be one of the finest libraries in Texas. He had long been a member of the Episcopal Church. Once, he remarked, "When I am dead and gone, if there are any meetings hereafter, I shall expect to meet those with whom I have been pleasantly associated during this life."
     His favorite hobby, so he said, was "Golf and my home; cleanliness, personal and civic."
     He was married last to Mrs. J. E.[?] Redfield of Hartford, Conn. Mrs. Eva O'Neill of Dallas, daughter by a previous marriage, is the only surviving child.
     Funeral services will be held at 3:30 p. m. Monday from the residence, 2925 Cedar Springs road, with Bishop Harry T. Moore officiating. Burial will be in Oakland Cemetery.
     Active pallbearers will be Sam P. Cochran, F. D. Cochran, T. L. Lauve, James C. Jones, W. J. Stone and E. L. Hurst.
     Honorary pallbearers will be H. C. Dunn, R. H. Stewart, J. A. Pondrom, Ed Rose, George Waverley Briggs, Henry Coke, E. J. Gannon, G. B. Dealey, A. V. Lane, M. M. Crane, Edward Gray, Nathan Adams, W. C. Connor, Dr. J. O. McReynolds, Dr. A. I. Folsom, George W. Jalonick, John S. Aldehoff, Sam Leake, Gross R. Scruggs, Edgar L. Flippen, Dero Seay, H. L. Edwards, E. J. Kiest, Percy Freeman, J. E. Lee, Dick Clark, Shep King, J. L. Lancaster, J. K. Hexter, Dr. R. W. Baird, Dr. George Carlisle, Lang Wharton, James R. Walsh and George Speer.

KIRK HALL

DEATH CLAIMS
KIRK HALL AT
DALLAS HOME

_______

FORMER CITY ALDERMAN SUC-
CUMBS AFTER LONG
LOCAL CAREER

     Kirk Hall, 81, prominent resident of Dallas fifty years and one-time city alderman, died Saturday morning at his home, 3411 Swiss avenue, following an extended illness. During his long residence here, Mr. Hall was actively engaged in various civic enterprises.
     Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a. m. Monday at the residence, with interment in Oakland cemetery, where members of the Elks organization will have charge of the services.
     Mr. Hall, who retired from active business about two years ago, due to ill health, was, for many years, engaged in the paving business here with the Bithulithic company.
     Mr. Hall was born Dec. 15, 1849, at Gainsborough, Tenn., the son of Littleton and Nancy Thompson Hall. He came to Texas in 1887 as Southern manager for the Singer Sewing Machine company. In 1908, he became associated with the Texas Bitulithic company and later with the Central Bitulithic company, when it was organized in 1922.

Served Two Times.
     During the administration of Mayor Frank P. Holland in 1895, Mr. Hall served as city alderman, and again during the Curtis P. Smith administration, the last under the old aldermanic form of government here.
In addition to other activities, Mr. Hall was well known as one of the organizers of the Toupe club, an old time society sponsored by bald-headed men of the city, with the late General Billy Patterson as the leader.
     In 1870, he was married to Miss Sarah Eliza Curlin of Union, Tenn., who died here in 1897. To this union, there were born four children, the late Dr. H. C. Hall of Laredo, Texas; and three surviving daughters, Mrs. George Lauderdale, Mrs. Jack Little of Dallas, and Mrs. W. B. Kellogg of Houston.
     Mr. Hall was married to Miss Leonora Pipkin of Dallas in 1901. From this union, he is survived by four daughters, Miss Helen Hall, Miss Nancy Kirk Hall of Dallas, Miss Dorothy Hall of Philadelphia, Pa., and Mrs. B. E. Simmons of Bay City, Texas. He is also survived by two brothers, G. B. Hall of Durant, Okla., and L. C. Hall of Memphis, Tenn.; two sisters, Mrs. J. H. Bryant and Mrs. Eugenia Cooper of Nashville, Tenn.; grandsons, three granddaughters and three great-grandchildren.

Daughter at Sea.
     Efforts were being made Saturday morning to communicate with Mr. Hall's daughter, Miss Helen Hall, a well known Dallas musician, who sailed Sunday from the port of Houston for an extended tour of European countries. The boat on which Miss Hall sailed was delayed and it was thought possible that she would be reached during the day at New Orleans, a port of call.
Active pallbearers will be his four sons-in-law, George Lauderdale, W. B. Kellogg of Houston, Jack Little, Jr., of Dallas, and Dr. Bryan E. Simmons of Bay City, and two nephews, Clinton Underwood of Dallas and Estell Hall of Galveston.
     Honorary pallbearers will be Alfred H. Johnson, C. L. Wakefield, Max Hahn, T. G. Kempster, J. B. Cozzo, Frank P. Holland, John R. Murphy, W. T. Davison, Murphy Townsend, L.

Sheriff Investigates
Mysterious Death of
Woman at Eagle Ford

     One of the most peculiar murder mysteries ever brought to the attention of Dallas County officers was being investigated Saturday by the Sheriff's office, after Joe Caldwell, Eagle Ford, reported that his wife died Wednesday from effects of a bullet wound received on May 25 and which she did not know about for several days.
     A stranger prowling around the Caldwell home while Caldwell was away on the night of May 25 caused Katie Caldwell to call the Sheriff's office and ask for protection. When Deputies John Reynolds and Walter Cline arrived, they found the front door of the home torn loose and general reports of a disturbance were made by neighbors. Katie Caldwell was on the front porch of her home when officers arrived and helped them search the neighborhood for the intruder.
     Four days later, Katie Caldwell discovered that she had been shot. The bullet had gone entirely through her hip, but she had never felt it until infection set up. She died June 10 and was buried June 11, Caldwell told the officers Saturday.

Son Attends Father's Burial
On Day They Planned Trip in
Celebration of Father's Day

     On the day he and his father were to have left on an automobile trop to celebrate Father's Day, a 14-year-old boy, Saturday, watched with tear-filled eyes, the lowering into a grave of the casket that held his father's body, lifeless from three bullets accidentally discharged from an automatic rifle as the boy lowered it to the father from a tree on a hunting trip Friday.
     Ralph Fincher and his father, J. B. Williams, 49, had planned to drive to Groesbeck Saturday morning to spend Sunday with Mr. Williams' brother, R. A. Williams, for a Father's Day celebration. Although they were to have been accompanied by Mrs. Cora E. Williams and Ralph's two younger brothers, it was Ralph and Mr. Williams who planned the trip.
     The boy explained the accident clearly. He and his father were hunting squirrels when they saw a squirrel run into a hole in the tree. Ralph climbed up the tree and his father handed him the automatic rifle. Ralph shot squirrel, but had difficulty climbing down with the gun.
     The boy attached the trigger guard of the gun to a branch and began to lower it stock-first to his father, who held up his hands to receive the weapon on the ground. when the gun was about four or five feet below the boy, the weight of the barrel caused it to spin and point downward. As the barrel pointed downward, it discharged three times, bullets striking Mr. Williams in the neck, leg and foot. Mr. Williams fell to the ground as Ralph dropped the gun. Mr. Williams died soon afterward.
     Ralph is tennis champion at Silberstein School, and a member of Boy Scout Troop 42. His father operated a garage at 2223 Pine street, where the family lives.
     Funeral services for Mr. Williams were held Saturday afternoon at the home. Burial was in Oakland Cemetery. The Rev. William H. Wallace Jr., pastor of Kessler Methodist Church, officiated.
     Pallbearers were J. D. Stanford, T. J. Allen, W. D. Keeper, C. O. Harrell, O. L. Williams and J. W. Stockard.

YOUNG WOMAN
DIES OF BURNS

_______

CLARA DELL HOLMES OF VICK-
ERY FATALLY SEARED BY
BLAZING GASOLINE

     Third degree burns sustained Saturday morning when her clothing caught fire from a blazing pan of gasoline at her home in Vickery, Tex., proved fatal to Miss Clara Dell Holmes, 17, at St. Paul's hospital during the afternoon.
     Miss Holmes was cleaning clothes in the kitchen of her home when the fatal accident occurred. When the gasoline caught fire, she grabbed the pan and attempted to rush from the house. She ran against a screen door, thinking that it was unlocked. The liquid was thrown back on her, making her clothing a mass of flames.
     Running into the yard, she attracted the attention of a neighbor, J. W. Anderson, who extinguished the flames with a quilt. He and his wife immediately placed the young woman in their car and brought her to the Dallas hospital.

Funeral Sunday.
     Although she was burned over the entire body, she was able to give an account of the accident. However, she did not know what caused the gasoline to ignite.
     Miss Holmes was a student in Vickery High school. She is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Holmes; four brothers, Lee and Ned Holmes of Vickery, Winston and Harry Holmes of Dallas, and three sisters, Sudie and Annie Kate Holmes of Vickery and Mrs. J. Y. Blanton of Quanito, Va.
     Funeral services will be held at 3 p. m. Sunday at the Methodist church in Vickery. Following the services, the body will be taken overland by George Loudermilk mortuary to Little Elm cemetery in Denton county for interment.
     Active pallbearers will be J. L. Smith, J. N. Dabney, C. C. Barnes, J. E. Anderson, W. H. Brown and Raymond Williams.

BURGLAR IS SHOT TO DEATH INSIDE STORE
_______

Owner Opens Fire
On Intruder After
Door Broken Open

______

Victim, Identified as Former Mechanic,
Found Dead on Floor by Sheriff Hood
After Being Notified of Shooting.

     W. V. Bentley, 40, operator of a grocery store at 727 Duncanville avenue in Cockrell Hill, shot and instantly killed a 31-year-old man, whom he surprised in the act of breaking into his store abut 2 o'clock Saturday morning.
     The slain man was identified as J. A. Bryan [Bryant], said to have formerly been employed as a mechanic at a local automobile plant.
Bentley, who lived at 719 Duncanville avenue, only a few doors from the store, told Sheriff Hal Hood he had been sleeping on a cot behind the meat counter in his store for the past few nights. This practice, he said, he felt necessary after he discovered a padlock had been twisted from the front door of his store about a week ago. The prowlers on that occasion failed to gain entrance.
     "I was asleep on the cot when I heard the plate glass crashed out of the front door," Bentley explained. "I got up and looked out the door just in time to see two men drive off in an automobile. An interurban car was passing at the time the glass was knocked out.

* * *

Fires at Intruder.
     "I picked up my shotgun and leaned against the counter, and in about fifteen minutes, the car came back and it was backed up to the sidewalk. Two men got out. One held the screen door open while the other crawled through the opening made by the broken glass.
     "It was dark inside the store. The man who crawled through could not see me. I leveled the shotgun and he walked to within twenty feet of me and then I pulled the trigger. It was a double-barrel shotgun. He screamed as the shot struck him full in the chest. He turned and started back toward the door. I fired the other barrel and he fell to the floor. The other man outside called for him to come on out.
     Getting no response, he jumped in the car, the motor of which had been left running, and drove away."

Finds Burglar Dead.
     Bentley said he turned on the lights and telephoned the sheriff's office. The burglar was dead when the ambulance arrived. The slain man's accomplice evidently made good his escape.
     Search of the slain man's pocket revealed a card giving the name of J. A. Bryant.
     Sheriff Hood located his sister at 732 West Seventh street, where Bryant had been living. He had been doing odd jobs as painter and paper hanger. Bryant had been married, but was not living with his wife, the sheriff said.
     After Bryant's body had been brought to the Keathley-Foley morgue, Dallas police were notified and went to the undertaking establishment and took finger prints of the dead man.
     When the finger prints had been classified, it was found that he had no police record in Dallas.
     Bryant had been employed at the Ford plant for the past seven years [as] a mechanic. He had most recently served as a line foreman at the plant.
     Dallas officers have learned the identity of the man who was with Bryant and arrest was expected soon.
     Local officers were not advised of the shooting until after the body had been brought to Dallas.

1933
William S. Adair,
Reporter on News,
Dies Unexpectedly

________

Studied Law, Edited His
Own Weekly a While,
Known for Texas Lore

________

     William Sterett Adair, 78, member of the editorial staff of The Dallas News for thirty-one years and widely known for his authorship of weekly historical sketches of pioneers who built Texas, died at 11:45 p.m. Monday at his home, 4133 Cole avenue. Though he had been ill more than a week, his death was unexpected and came as a shock to his associates.
     Mr. Adair was born at Hawesville, Ky., and educated at Lexington for the practice of law, but after coming to Texas in 1876, soon after forsook the bar to follow newspaper work.

Once Edited Own Weekly.
     He followed varied pursuits, chiefly connected with the publishing industry, before joining the staff of The News. For a time, he was connected with the State Fair of Texas Association, and once he published a weekly paper in Dallas.
     At one period, he took up the practice of law, and for a time, was in a partnership with Barry Miller, former Lieutenant Governor of Texas. Also, he worked on a San Antonio newspaper for a time.

Nephew of Colonel Sterett.
     He was a nephew of the late Col. William Greene Sterett, widely known political and editorial writer for The News, and bore his family name.
In the last few years, Mr. Adair frequently commented on the changes that have taken place in Texas journalism since 1876.

Reluctant to Drop Pencil.
     The change from the pencil to the typewriter in the city newsroom was one that Mr. Adair noticed most. He had given long years of service in which reporters wrote all their stories by hand, and he abstained from using a typewriter for some time after they had come into general use.
     For the last several years, he had been on special assignment, the best known of which, were his weekly stories of early-day Texas, and in which he developed a historical accuracy that made them of great value to research workers.
     Mr. Adair is survived by his wife, two sons, John R. Adair of Dallas and E. L. Adair, Opelousas, La.; a brother, John Adair, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Johnson and Miss Eliza Adair, all of Hawesville, Ky., and four grandchildren.

     Mrs. Butler died Friday at her home, 520 North Lancaster.
     Present occupants of the home did not attend the services, officials of the institution believing it would be following the policy of Mrs. Butler to shield them from its sadness.

BODY OF VICTIM

     In a room at the hotel where he had been employed for eight years, D. W. Johnson, 63, of 4013 Crutcher street, was found dead with a bullet wound through the heart and a .38 caliber pistol beside him late Friday afternoon.

     His death was caused by a gunshot wound, suicidal, Justice B. H. Fly said in a verdict returned after conducting a Coroner's inquest.
     Surviving him are his wife; four sons, J. B. Johnson, C. O. Johnson, Howard Johnson and Willard Johnson, and two daughters, Mrs. P. V. Buchanan and Mrs. G. B. Rowland, all of Dallas.

Abused Wife, Unable
To Obtain Peace Bond,
Slays Drunken Mate

______

"He Has Beaten Me Long
Enough," Wails Waitress
in Jail After Shooting

     Mrs. Lois Wallace, 34-year-old waitress, went to the courthouse late Saturday afternoon to see what part of the law she could invoke against her husband, whom she said was drunk and had threatened her. Because justice of the peace courts were closed, she was unable to have him put under peace bond, but she was told she had a right to defend herself. Two hours later, she was in jail, and her husband, Ernest Wallace, died at Baylor hospital at midnight.
     She shot Wallace in the breast as he came toward her where she stood behind the cash register in Archie's Eat Shop, 4207 Parry avenue.
     "I had to shoot him," she told police. "He has beaten me up long enough."
     Wed last March 4, she and Wallace have lived together only part of the time since, she told officers. After intermittent separations and reconciliations, she finally left him about ten days ago and has been staying at the home of Mrs. Isabell Brown, 622 First street, operator of the cafe.
Wallace, 37 years old, was employed as a mechanic by the A. P. Hurst company on Main street.

Talked to Prosecutor.
     Walter F. Clark, assistant district attorney, to whom Mrs. Wallace told her marital troubles when she visited the courthouse before the shooting, denied he had told her to "get a baseball bat" and use it on her husband, but explained he had told her she was entitled under the law to defend herself from attack, and that he had advised her to have her husband put under peace bond. She had been unable to do that because the justice of the peace courts were closed.
     Wallace had been in the cafe earlier in the afternoon, Mrs. Wallace told officers. She said she made him leave and then went to the courthouse.
     She said he returned later with another man and was drunk. When he came toward her, as she stood behind the cash register, she picked up the gun, the property of Mrs. Brown, and fired once.
     "I don't know how many times I shot him," she said later. Witnesses said she had fired only once.

Claimed Mistreatment.
     Clark said when the woman visited the district attorney's office, she related in detail how Wallace had beaten and abused her on many occasions, particularly when he was drinking.
     "I have stood all of that I can," she told Mr. Clark. "If he keeps coming to the eatshop, I will lose my job. I want some help from the law."
     Mrs. Wallace told of her husband calling at the cafe where she works earlier in the afternoon. She related how he cursed and abused her and then left, warning he was going to return later and slug her. She asked Mr. Clark what she should do if he returned and attempted to carry out his threats.
     Clark said he told Mrs. Wallace she was entitled under the law to use whatever force was necessary to defend herself. When Mrs. Wallace asked him if it would be all right for her to keep a pistol at the cafe, he said he advised her against that. Instead, he suggested that she call the officers immediately and then come to the district attorney's office and file charges against him.

Denies Advised Violence.
     Finally, Clark said, he advised Mrs. Wallace the proper thing to do was to appear before a justice of the peace, swear out an affidavit that he had threatened her life, and have him placed under a peace bond.
     She left the district attorney's office for the old courthouse, where the two justices of the peace offices are located. It was almost 6 o'clock and Mrs. Wallace found no one at the offices. Clark said she did not return to the district attorney's office.
     Clark emphatically denied that he told Mrs. Wallace the thing to do was to get a baseball bat and repel any attack her husband might make.
