THE CHIEF IS DEAD.
______

Passed Peacefully Away at
8:10 O'Clock Last Night.

_______

DIED FROM LOSS OF BLOOD.
_______

From the Wound Inflicted by
Rev. Truett's Gun.

_______

NO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.
________

His Condition, Regarded as Critic-
al from the Very First,
was Never Changed Till
Death Relieved His Sufferings.

     Capt. J. C. Arnold, chief of police, died at 8:10 o'clock last night at his home, 451 Commerce street, as a result of a gunshot wound in his right leg.

______

     As stated in this paper yesterday, Capt. Arnold was shot Friday afternoon by the accidental discharge of a shotgun loaded with No. 8 shot in the hands of Rev. George W. Truett, pastor of the First Baptist church of Dallas, while hunting on the farm of ex-Sheriff Boyd of Johnson county, eight miles from Cleburne. The charge of shot took effect in the right leg midway between the knee and ankle, tearing away a large piece of flesh and about four inches of the smaller bone. Mr. Truett quickly got out a large silk handkerchief and Capt. Arnold bandaged the wound with it and by means of the barrel of his gun, twisted it tightly. Mr. Truett called to Rev. G. W. Banner, the third member of the party, who was in another part of the field. The two men assisted Capt. Arnold to the buggy. As they were lifting him in the vehicle, he said:
     "Gentlemen, I am going to faint a little while. Now, don't get alarmed. Just throw a few drops of water in my face."
     They did as he requested and he soon came to, on which, he requested Mr. Truett to go on ahead to Mr. Boyd's and see about a doctor. Mr. Truett was very fortunate in readily finding Dr. Harris. After Capt. Arnold had reached Mr. Boyd's and the doctor had arrived, Mr. Truett was overcome with nervous prostration, and fainted away himself, and was, for some time, apparently in a worse condition than the wounded man.
     At Capt. Arnold's request, Mr. Truett came to Dallas a train ahead of him. He wished him to tell the straight of the accident. He said if he telegraphed the people, [he] would be sure to get it all wrong.
     Capt. Arnold arrived on the Santa Fe train yesterday morning and was conveyed to his home. At that time, there had been no reaction or rally from the first shock of the wound. But, it was hoped that the reaction would certainly come in a few hours and the most hopeful view of his condition was taken by the wounded man's friends, this paper sharing such hopes. But, as the hours passed without any symptoms of a reaction, other physicians were called in to consultation. They agreed that the loss of blood had been very great, and proceeded to supply the deficiency in the life fluid by injecting warm salt water into his veins and giving him drugs to revive him. But, his heart did not respond. He had bled to death, they said. He was conscious at times, but flighty. At 5 p.m., he began to visibly sink, and, at 8:10, he died.

_________

     The news that Capt. Arnold had been accidentally shot was received by his friends throughout the city with profound regret, but it was hard for them to understand how a strong man shot in the calf of the leg could be in a critical condition, as he was reported to be. And, when toward the middle of the afternoon, it was reported that the doctors had given him up, the truth was difficult to realize. Was it possible that the boastful sciences of medicine and surgery could not save a man with a little wound in his leg? It was possible.

_________

     "He was one of the best and truest men I never knew," remarked an old friend and acquaintance of the deceased last night. In that remark, he voted the sentiment of every man who really knew the deceased. He was one of the few men who start out in life on what they conceive to be the right course, and then hold steadily to it. The people knew him to be not only honest, but capable, and that was why they kept on electing him chief of police, and would, no doubt, have continued to do so had he lived. He was a natural born officer, and he could discharge his duties towards all sorts of characters without having to trouble with them. He was perhaps the only old western officer with anything like his experience who did not have more or less killing to do. Nearly all of the old time desperadoes, who made it a business to shoot up towns all over the West, threatened time and again to come to Dallas and try it on. Many of them even sent Capt. Arnold word they were coming, but somehow they never got here, or in the few instances in which they did come, they behaved themselves.

_________

     Capt. was vice president of the National Police Chiefs and City Marshals' union, and president of the Texas union. He was the organizer of the Police Benevolent association in this city.

_________

     Capt. Arnold carried about $12,000 worth of life insurance, distributed among several companies and fraternal orders. The exact amount, nor the names of the companies, could not be ascertained last night, though the amount given is approximately correct.
     The funeral will take place Tuesday, the hour to be announced later.

     James C. Arnold, chief of police of the city of Dallas, was born near Wellington, Morgan county, Georgia, April 29, 1851. His parents were W. B. and Martha B. (Bostwick) Arnold, both natives of Georgia. His father was a merchant of Social Circle, Walton county, Georgia, at the commencement of the war, and enlisted in the Confederate service as private and served until the war closed, mostly on the coast of Georgia. He was a supporter of Breckenridge and Lane in the presidential race in 1860, and a strong advocate of state rights, and was for many years, a prominent member of the Baptist church. He was born August 31, 1820. Martha B., his wife, was born August 24, 1824, and died August 15, 1854, a member of the Baptist church from early childhood. There were born to these parents, seven children, three of whom died at an early age. John H., the oldest, at the commencement of the war, enlisted for six months, defending the coast of Georgia, but later joined the Fifty-third Georgia regiment and served under General Longstreet until the time of his death, December 26, 1862. William T., the second son, served in the Second Georgia regiment during the war and is still living, and has been for sixteen or eighteen years, district and county clerk of Sabine county, Texas. Emma D. Arnold, their daughter, sister of James C., the wife of M. A. Parker, is living in Atlanta, Georgia; Mr. Parker served in the Fifty-third Georgia regiment during the war under Longstreet.
     James Carter Arnold, the subject of this sketch, was raised in Morgan and Walton counties, Georgia, went to school at Social Circle and old Fair Play, same state, and left his home for Carroll county, Mississippi, on the 14th of February, 1866, and there worked on a farm for P. H. Echols, W. A. Gayden and Col. J. D. McLemore, and in December, 1869, came to Texas to Dr. R. S. McLemore (a son of Col. J. D. McLemore), who owned Camp's Ferry, on Sabine river, in Upshur county, and lived with him until 1871, when McLemore sold the Ferry to A. Ferguson and W. L. Wilbrun; he was then in their employ until the fall of 1872; he then went in to partnership with E. B. Winn in supplying contractors with beef. The contractors were building the first fourteen miles of railway from Longview west. He then went from there to Fort Worth, expecting to be engaged in the same business, but the railroad suspended operations west of Dallas. He then followed the grocery business for a time, connecting himself with the firm of Connell, Arnold & co., at Fort Worth. He remained there for a short time. He closed out and came to Dallas in April, 1874, and has been a resident of Dallas ever since.
     After coming to Dallas, he was engaged in different vocations, first in the meat business and then in the hide business, until November 5, 1874, when he was appointed on the police force of the city of Dallas under General W. L. Cabell, mayor, and June Peak, marshal. He served as patrolman and mounted officer until 1879, when he was appointed deputy city marshal under W. F. Morton, who was then city marshal. In June, 1881, he was appointed city marshal, vice W. F. Morton, resigned, and then an election was ordered to fill the unexpired term of W. F. Morton, at which election he was chosen, and has held the position of city marshal and chief of police ever since that time by virtue of an election and the choice of the people of Dallas up to the present time. During these periods of elections for chief of police of the city of Dallas, from 1881, up to the present time, he has had only five opponents, and at the last city Democratic convention, which was held April, 1892, he was the unanimous choice of that convention as the nominee of the Democratic party for the office, and was elected without opposition. This would have been his twenty-fourth year as a member of the police force, and during all these years of service, both as a subordinate, and an official, his acts have been for the fulfillment of the law without endangering life or limb to those violating the law, which was his sworn duty to have executed. By, and under, his jurisdiction, the police department has grown in efficiency from year to year, until now, it is regarded as being without a peer in any city of a similar size in the United States. He was ready, quick and genial in his manner, cool and clear-headed, and his wonderful success in dealing with men was due to these qualifications, together with the courage displayed by him in his official capacity in arresting many desperate criminals and violators of the law. He was a member of the following charitable and benevolent orders: Masonic, K. of P., I. O. O. F., and the Elks.
     He was married in 1871, to Miss Callie Staples, daughter of David W. and M. A. Staples of Talladega, Alabama. She is an estimable Christian lady, a member of the First Baptist church, of which church, Mr. Arnold was a member for about eighteen years.

________

     The effect of the accident of Rev. Mr. Truett, the innocent cause of it, amounted to prostration. On reaching home, he took to his bed, and gave himself up to the most gloomy reflections. An ordinary man who had committed a deliberate murder, could not have been a prey to greater agitation. He sent one messenger after another to ascertain the condition of Capt. Arnold, and refused to give way to sleep. Two or three doctors visited him off and on all day. Last night, they gave him a drug to induce sleep, and gave orders that he was not to know of the death of Capt. Arnold until he had had some sleep, as they would not be responsible for the consequences of breaking the news to him in the then unstrung condition of his nerves.
     Mr. Truett's regret is all the more profound on account of the fact that he did not wish to go hunting. Capt. Arnold, once a year, went hunting with Rev. Mr. Baines on Capt. Boyd's farm. They had a standing engagement for such hunt for several years. On Wednesday, Mr. Baines phoned Capt. Arnold to remind him of their engagement for this year, and told him to bring along Rev. Geo. W. Truett. Capt. Arnold called for Mr. Truett, who, having no love for hunting, and knowing next to nothing about guns, and being absorbed in church work, declined to go. Capt. Arnold and Mrs. Truett, together, just made him go, both of them under the impression that a little recreation would be wholesome for him.

_________

     The regular Saturday meeting of the Elks was adjourned out of respect to the memory of Brother J. C. Arnold, after appointing a committee to perfect arrangements for the funeral.

_________

     Attention Elks: There will be a special meeting of Dallas Lodge No. 71, at their lodge rooms at 10:30 Sunday (to-day) morning, Feb. 6, 1898, to take suitable action regarding the death of Brother J. C. Arnold. All are requested to attend.

THAT LETOT HOMICIDE.
_______

What Witnesses Say About Mc-
Cullough Killing Thompson.

_______

WHY THE LATTER DID NOT ANSWER.
_______

Probably Trying to Scare McCul-
lough-Thompson was a Fid-
dler and Good Fellow.

     Deputy Sheriff William Work, who went to Letot Friday night when the sheriff's office was notified of the killing of John Thompson by Cab McCullough, returned yesterday afternoon. He gave substantially the following account of the homicide as gathered from the witnesses:
     There was to be a dance at Pete Claxton's, near the McCullough home. The dancers were slow about putting in an appearance, and Claxton went over to McCullough's where there were several young women to urge them to come. Just before they got ready to start, Cab McCullough stepped out into the yard, and seeing someone at the gate, demanded to know who it was. No answer coming, he went into the house and got his gun, and again asked. Again, no reply coming, he fired, killing Thompson. All the witnesses testify that Thompson, for some reason, did not answer, and as he was a good natured fellow, the opinion prevails among the people of the neighborhood that he was just trying to scare McCullough. He knew McCullough was very nervous and in constant dread of being assassinated, and it is thought he could not resist the temptation to give him a little scare, and, in the dark, did not see that he had a gun in his hand.
     Thompson, familiarly known as "Thomp," had lived in the neighborhood off and on for several years. Nobody knew where he came from, nor anything of his antecedents. He just drifted into the settlement, and being a good fiddler and willing to play for all the dances and a good natured fellow, he soon made friends with everybody. He chopped wood for a living. He was about 50 years old and was believed to be a bachelor. The remains were turned over to Undertaker Loudermilk.

__________

     Cab McCullough lived in constant dread of being assassinated. He, several times, reported to Sheriff Cabell that his life had been threatened. McCullough has two uncles living at Garland, M. W. Clark and Wm. McDonald, who are well fixed, and who will make bond for him.

COL. D. A. WILLIAMS DEAD.
_______

Famous Confederate Soldier
Passes Away at Terrell

     Col. D. A. Williams died yesterday in Terrell, where he was under the expert treatment of the North Texas asylum physicians for nervous prostration.
     Col. Williams was born in Prince Edward county, Va., October 19, 1832. Col. Williams' father, who was an extensive tobacco planter, and who owned many slaves, removed to Lynn county, Missouri, several years before the war, and there followed agriculture and mercantile pursuits.
     At the breaking out of the war, Col. Williams joined the Missouri state guards, Lieut. Slack's division, and on August 18, 1862, wit the skeleton companies constituting the Confederate forces, he participated in the battles of Independence and Lone Jack, both of which were won by the Confederates. The congeries of companies and squads composing the victorious side were shortly after the above the battles organized into a brigade at McKissick Springs, Arkansas, and Gen. Shelby was placed in command. The brigade consisted of three regiments besides a battalion of scouts. Col. Williams was captain of company D, Third regiment. Col. Williams' company was detached and made the advance guard of the brigade. From the time of the battles mentioned above to the end of the war, Shelby's brigade was almost continuously fighting and Col. Williams was in all the battles fought west of the Mississippi.
     At the close of hostilities, Col. Williams went to Mexico with Gen. Shelby, Maj. John N. Edwards, Maj. John Henry Brown, Gen. Magruder, E. Kirby Smith, Gen. Price, Commodore M. F. Maury and other Confederate leaders. But, on the fall of the Emperor Maximillian, they returned to the United States. Col. Williams became a cotton planter in Phillips county, Arkansas, but the great overflow of 1867 destroyed his crop, in which he had what wealth he had saved from the war. He next located in Bonham, Texas, and proceeded to practice law. But, thinking Dallas a better location, he shortly, after going to Bonham, came to his city, where he made quite a reputation as a lawyer. He was, in the 70's partner of Judge J. M. Hurt, and later in partnership with Col. H. Barksdale. He was, for several years, alderman for the First ward, and was county attorney from 1888 to 1892--two terms.
     Col. Williams and Col. E. G. Bower, in the early 80's, organized the ex-Confederate Missourians at Shady View park. Col. Williams was a member of Camp Sterling Price, ex-Confederate Veterans, and the funeral will conducted by that camp.

TOO MUCH MORPHINE
_______

John Porter, of DeSoto Found
Dying Last Night.

    John Porter, aged about 60 years, living near DeSoto, was found at 8 o'clock last night in a room over the opera house drug store on Jefferson street, far advanced on the road to death from morphine.
    Several physicians were called in, but the old gentleman was beyond the reach of medical skill, and died very soon after the doctors had reached him.
    Mr. Porter had been drinking, and probably took morphine to steady his nerves, and got too much. There was no proof that he meant to commit suicide.
    Justice Skelton, acting coroner, inquested the remains and returned a verdict of death from morphine poisoning.
    Deceased has relatives and friends at Lancaster and DeSoto. He was an uncle of Messrs. W. J. and Fred Porter.

An Unknown Dead Man Pulled
Out of the River.

     Last night, the sheriff's office was notified of the finding of the body of a man in the old swimming hole, above the brewery.
     The body, which was turned over to Undertaker Loudermilk, had the throat cut from ear to ear.
     Justice Skelton, acting coroner, was unable, up to this afternoon, to find anybody who could identify the dead man. But, a Mr. F. R. Sessums of 1052 Pacific avenue, testifies that the dead man came to his house on Sunday last and inquired the way to Mr. Clemons' house at 103 Benson street. He said his name was J. W. Carson, and that he was just out of the Printers' Home at Colorado Springs, Colorado. This is all Mr. Sessums knew about the man.
     Deceased, who was apparently about fifty years old, had several articles on him that had been bought in Colorado Springs, among them a derby hat, spectacles, etc.
     The coroner will hold the inquest open for additional testimony.
     The dead man had in his vest pocket, the card of Rev. L. Schaefle, Henrietta, Texas. He also had an empty razor case. The supposition is he cut his throat and fell into the river, dropping the razor in the water.

THE FLOATER IDENTIFIED.
_______

S. E. Carson the Name of the Man
Found in the Trinity.

     The body of a white man was found floating in the Trinity river about one mile north of the Commerce street bridge yesterday morning at 1:55 o'clock. The discovery was made by three fishermen who were spending the nigh on the banks of the stream. They took it out of the water and notified the sheriff's office.
     Deputy Sheriff William Work, who responded to the call, found that the throat had been cut from ear to ear. The cut was fully four inches deep, the head being nearly severed from the trunk. The horrible slash had evidently been inflicted with a razor. In addition to this, there was a contusion over the right temple, which resembled a bullet hole. On being probed, a hard substance, which was caught in the skull, fell back into the cavity and was not recovered.
     The body had evidently not been in the water more than three hours. Mr. Work sent several men up the river to search for traces of a struggle. The searchers found a razor strop about half a mile north of where the body was found. A short distance away was a big pool of blood.
     The remains were brought to Dallas at 3 a. m. and turned over to an undertaker, who prepared them for burial. Justice Skelton viewed the body at 10 o'clock, but withheld the verdict because he was unable to determine from the evidence whether it was a case of murder or suicide.
     The body was dressed in a pair of blue overalls and a tattered coat. From letters found in the pockets of the latter, it is surmised that the dead man's name was S. E. Carson. Carson was a printer by trade and came to Dallas about two weeks ago. He rented a room at a boarding-house on Pacific avenue about two doors west of North Harwood street. The letter also showed that he had relatives living in Pittsburg, Pa., and that he had but recently left the Printers' Home at Colorado Springs, Col.
     Among the other papers found was a working card issued by Dallas Typographical union, Dec. 5, 1895.
     Carson was about 50 years old, and it is claimed that at one time he was well known here.
     Pending the rendering of Justice Skelton's verdict, Sheriff Cabell's force of deputies is carefully investigating the affair, for many believe that death was due to foul play.
     The body was buried yesterday evening.

AN OLD SETTLER GONE.
________

Something of the Life of Judge Nat M.
Burford, Who Died Tuesday.

     On Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock, Judge Nat M. Burford died in this city, at the home of his son-in-law, W. M. Freeman, after a long and distressing illness. Judge Burford was a pioneer in northern Texas, and to him, and such as he, Dallas owes a great debt of gratitude. He was for many years one of the most useful and distinguished citizens of this section and of the state. He was born in the state of Tennessee on the 24th of June, 1824; was educated at Irvine college, Tennessee, and removed to Jefferson, Texas, in 1847. He was admitted to the bar in Tennessee in 1845. On the 8th of October, 1848, he came to Dallas, and from that time until his death, he was a resident here.
     In 1850, he was elected district attorney of this district, comprising a territory extending from Houston county to Grayson county on Red river, and in 1852, was, was re-elected. Judge John H. Reagan was judge of the district. In 1856, he succeeded Judge Reagan on the bench by election and was re-elected in 1860, and in 1861, resigned and joined the first Texas battery as a private under Capt. J. J. Good.
     He was made colonel of the nineteenth Texas cavalry and attached to Gen. W. H. Parsons' cavalry brigade and remained with it until 1864, when, on account of illness, incapacitating him from active service, he resigned.
     In 1866, he was elected a member of the eleventh legislature from Dallas county and upon the assembling of the legislature, he was elected speaker of that body, a position which he filled with singular ability until, with almost all mother public officials, he was removed as an impediment to reconstruction by Gen. Phil Sheridan.
     In 1876, he was again elected judge of this judicial district and held the position until forced to resign by ill health at the expiration of two years. Almost ever since his health has been such as to make his life an inexpressibly sad one. He was preceded to the grave by his wife, who, before her marriage, was Miss Mary M. Knight, a daughter of an old pioneer of Dallas county. She was a large-hearted Christian woman, whose death is still mourned by the many survivors who knew her. All the children of this marriage, except two, crossed the dark river before the father. The two surviving are Mrs. W. M. Freeman and Miss May Burford, a young lady just completing her education near Cincinnati, O. Judge Burford's knowledge of the law, and of current affairs, was profound. In the days of his mental vigor, it was said of him that he never forgot anything once read by him. He was a charter member of Tannehill lodge No. 52, and its first master. He was a member of the Episcopal church, and for years, one of its vestrymen. He will be buried by the Masonic fraternity Friday from the residence of W. M. Freeman, South Akard street.

TOM BOLTON DEAD.
______
The Ex-Tax Assessor of Dallas
County no More.

    J. T. Bolton, a well known Dallas man, died a few days ago in Vera Cruz, Mexico, at the age of 53 years. A letter to that effect was received Friday evening by Mr. James E. Bolton, son of deceased, from the American consul general in the City of Mexico.
    The wife of deceased lives at 657 Ross avenue. His two sons, J. E. and R. L., are known throughout the city and county.
    At the time of his death, and for some prior thereto, Mr. Bolton was in charge of jetty work at Vera Cruz, and his illness dated from a blow on the foot from a stick of falling timber. He was cotton weigher in this county for six years and was twice elected county tax assessor, but was defeated in 1896.  He was born in Tennessee, but when quite young, removed with his parents to Kentucky, where he grew to manhood. In 1873, he came to Texas, selecting Dallas as his home.

J. M. COWAN DEAD.
______

An Old Citizen Passes Away
After a Long Illness.

     Mr. I. M. Cowan died last night at the room of Mr. Joe Rhodes, aged 66 years. Mr. Cowan, who had been in feeble health for some time, was recently bound and roughly handled by a negro who robbed him at his farm near Hutchins, an account of which appeared in this paper a few days ago. He did not recover from the nervous shock resulting from the assault of the negro, and in a very feeble condition, he came to Dallas as soon as he could travel and stopped with friends, fearing to remain alone on his farm any longer.
     Deceased had been a resident of Dallas for twenty years or more. For a long time, he was one of the most prominent business men. He came from Missouri, where a brother survives him. He also has relatives in California.
     The remains will be interred this afternoon at Johnson station, Tarrant county, where the wife and daughter of the deceased sleep.

LACY'S STATEMENT.
_______

He Gives His Version of Cow-
an's Tragic Death.

To the Times Herald:
     Dallas, May 31.--Since the late fire, I have been confined to my room nursing my burns and bruises, and have not seen a newspaper reporter, nor authorized any of the numerous statements credited to me. As I was the only fireman with unfortunate Cowan, the unfair statement of a Mr. Kennedy that said fireman threw his hose out of the window and ran down the steps, and the additional statement by said Kennedy in this morning's News, that he left no one in the front end of the building where Cowan was buried, is my excuse for now appearing in print.
     I do not believe that Mr. Kennedy could ever convince the present members of the fire department, Chief Wilkinson, or any of the old members that I ever threw a hose down or deserted my post, leaving Kennedy, or any one else to bear the brunt. I was in charge of the chemical engine after I reached the fire. I carried the line into the second story of the Lehman building from Elm street, played on the walls of the Lehman building back to the opening in the rear of said building, between that and the Shields building. While there, the first tank was exhausted. A young man (Cowan, I suppose) held the nozzle, while I ran through the second story of the Lehman building to Elm street and called to a young man (Overstreet) to dump the other tank. I then ran back to the Shields building and Cowan had entered the opening into the Shields building with the hose, which was not working, something being the matter with the valve. I took the nozzle, and Mr. Lehman, Cowan and a fleshy man assisted me in turning on the valve so that the nozzle would work.
     I then entered the Shields building and went to the first opening in the Dorsey wall, Cowan keeping with me. I warned Cowan twice to get out because the smoke was getting so dense that he would be suffocated. He evidently did not want to leave me alone, because he stepped back some eight or ten feet and remained standing a few minutes, until the wall fell that completely buried him. I was knocked down by the wall, or something, as my back and shoulders will attest. My legs were pinioned by the hot bricks, and in extricating myself, my left boot was left under the brick. Cowan was buried under at least six feet of hot brick between me and the opening where we entered the building. At first, he yelled lustily five or six times. I had to crawl over the brick, under which, Cowan was buried, to reach the opening where we entered, which I found blockaded, and had to kick the sash out of a small window opening into the space between the Shields and Lehman buildings, through which, I escaped, going thence down the stairs through the Lehman building to Elm street. I had to kick the glass out of the front door of the Lehman building to get on to Elm street. After I crawled over where Cowan was buried, I could hear him faintly moaning. I could not get to him, nor, could any one else from that end of the building. He was completely covered with bricks, every one as hot as fire could make it.
     When I entered the Shields building with Cowan, after having had the second tank of the chemical turned on, I saw Mr. Lehman, a fleshy man, and another party at the opening, and Fireman Ramsey was standing at the head of the stairway of the Lehman building adjusting a sponge over his end of the building except Cowan. After entering the Shields building, I saw no one at all in that building].
     I desire no notoriety, nor shall I engage in any newspaper controversy. I have nothing whatever to say about what any other party did. To the extent of my ability, I did what I conceived to be my duty at the time.

DROPPED DEAD.
_______

Mr. John P. Loughlin Over-
come by Heat.

     John P. Loughlin, one of the proprietors of the 16 to 1 wagon yard, located at the corner of Commerce street and roadway, dropped dead presumably from overheat and heart failure at about 10 o'clock this morning. Mr. Loughlin and his partner had been hard at work all the morning, cleaning and scouring out the old two-story frame building in the yard and had just about finished their task, when he stepped out on the back porch going out into the yard, and dropped dead. Justice Lauderdale held an inquest and returned a verdict in accordance with the above facts. The remains were turned over to Undertaker Loudermilk, who prepared the body for burial previous to taking it to the family home in Oak Cliff.
     Mr. Loughlin was quite well known in this city, having removed here several years ago from Waxahachie. After living here for three or four years, he went out west and engaged in business, returning here a few months ago. He leaves a widow, a grown son and daughter and two small children. The son, Ernest, is bookkeeper for a prominent coal firm in town. Superintendent Strong, of the waterworks department, is a brother-in-law of deceased.

IN MEMORY OF ABRAHAM DYSTERBACH.
The fevered fret of life must be,
Better worth the while, if when we lie,
Low and prone beneath the grass and sky,
We know that grateful hearts will ache
And hot tears of regret fall, for our sake,
And Nature takes us, weary--to her breast,
The winds will sigh--"a good man, let him rest."

     "My son had been drinking for about a week. At 6 o'clock this morning, a woman came and told me had taken morphine up at Scotty's saloon. I went up there and found him asleep in a chair. I could not rouse him. I brought him home and summoned three doctors who worked on him until noon, when he died.
     "My son assigned no reason for taking poison. I do not believe he intended to commit suicide. He had a job in the stand next door to the Farmer's Alliance, on Market street, but he blew in the money he made."
     Justice Skelton inquested the remains and returned a verdict in accordance with the foregoing facts.

MR. GEO. L. McFALL DEAD.

One of the Oldest Farmers in

     Mr. George L. McFall died last night at his home in Duncanville, as a result of injuries received in a collision of his farm wagon with a Santa Fe freight train several days ago, an account of which, appeared in this paper. The wagon was torn to pieces and both mules were killed, and it was a marvel that Mr. McFall, who was driving the team, escaped with only a few bruises, which, to a younger man, would have amounted to nothing, but which, at Mr. McFall's advanced age of 83 years, were too great a shock.
Mr. McFall was one of the oldest and wealthiest farmers in the county. The interment will take place at Wheatland to-morrow.

UNKNOWN DEAD MAN.
______

Found Back of a Saloon on
Commerce Street Yesterday.

     Late yesterday afternoon, City Health Officer Florence was notified that an unknown man was lying back of Archer's saloon, on Commerce street, in a dying condition. The ambulance was sent, and the man conveyed to Parkland hospital, where he died about six hours later of lock jaw. When the ambulance arrived for the man, he was unconscious and unable to speak, and as he grew worse until he died, it was impossible to learn from him his name or anything of his whereabouts. Neither was there anything on his person to identify him.
     His remains were taken in charge by Undertaker Dunn, who embalmed them and is holding them for identification. The man was identified by some unknown person as John Hanson, said first to have been an employe of the Cotton Belt railway and later of the Santa Fe, but in what capacity, was not known.

OBITUARY.

    BOLL-Died in this city, Nov. 18, 1898, Mrs. Henry Boll, aged 58 years, 5 months and 13 days. She was a native of the canon of Zurich, republic of Switzerland, born on June 5, 1840, and came with her mother to Dallas in May, 1856, to join the father, who had come to this country the preceding year as one of the French colony which settled what was known as Reunion, some four miles west of Dallas. On July 22, 1856, she was united in marriage with Henry Boll, Sr., who survives her. She was the mother of ten children, eight of whom are alive and bowed down with sorrow at her death. Mrs. June Peak of Shackelford county, Mrs. E. Arnoldi of Sherman and Misses Annie and Lizzie boll of Dallas; also, Jacob, Henry, Jr., Charles and William Boll, all of Dallas. She was a loving, kind and affectionate wife and mother, and discharged every duty devolved on her in those relations in a most beautiful and gracious manner. She was a most warm-hearted, faithful friend, and as kindly and charitable a lady as ever lived in our midst. She was a member of the Eastern Star and Good Samaritan lodges, adjuncts of the Masonic fraternity, and will be sadly missed by her brothers and sisters of those orders. She was confirmed as a member of the German Reformed Evangelical church in Switzerland in the year 1856, and died in that faith after a long and painful illness, which she bore with Christian resignation and fortitude. She was one of the oldest citizens of Dallas, and among those who knew her beautiful life and character, her memory will long be cherished and enshrined in their hearts. To the bereaved husband and disconsolate children, the writer can only offer the hope, which will burst into fruition, that in the future, there will be a reunion in a land beyond the stars, where sorrow and pain and parting shall be no more. Respectfully,
                                           A FRIEND.
    Funeral services to-day at 2 o'clock p. m. from the German Evangelical church, corner Liberty and Texas streets, to Greenwood cemetery. Friends invited and requested to attend.

In Memoriam.

     After a lingering illness of several weeks, Brother E. F. Spaulding died at his home in East Dallas, Oct. 11, 1898, at the age of 73 years.
     The deceased was born in Canton, Bradford county, Pennsylvania, and for thirty-six years, he traveled on the road. During these years, he changed houses but cone, having worked for two firms over a third of a century. Now, he has made his last trip and passed to his final reward.
     During his lifetime, he was the friend to the new traveling man, always ready to render assistance when necessary, and his long experience on the road made him a valuable friend to the new drummer just starting out. His was a useful life, not only did he much good by his kindly advice and generous aid, but by his daily walk, gentlemanly bearing and Christian conduct, he set a high standard that others might profit by his exemplary life.
     In his death, the traveling fraternity has lost more than a friend, we have lost a brother and mourn his death as such, his family has lost a true and loving husband, a fond and indulgent father.
     Whereas, it has pleased the Almighty Father of this universe to remove from our midst our dearly beloved brother, E. T. Spaulding. Be it
     Resolved, by Dallas council No. 62, U. C. T., that we offer to his bereaved family, our heartfelt sympathy; that a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to them and also be printed in The Dallas News. Signed by Geo. K. Meriwether, H. F. MacKintosh and E. B. Mitchell, committee.
     Dallas Council No. 62, U. C. T. "He is at rest, in God's own presence blest, whom, while with us, we loved to greet."
     Whereas, on the morning of Nov. 16, it pleased the Supreme Ruler of the universe to call to rest our beloved brother, C. O. Lind, be it
     Resolved, that in the death of Brother Lind the traveling fraternity has lost an active and worthy member; one who was ever ready to extend the right hand of fellowship to a comrade, and that his family have lost a devoted brother and son. That his constancy and efficiency and whatsoever pertained to his honor, testify abundantly to his character, proclaiming that our loss is his gain. That we extend to his sorrowing mother our sincere sympathy in their bereavement. That a page of our minute book be dedicated to his memory, and that these resolutions be inscribed thereon. That a copy of said resolutions be furnished to the mother of our deceased brother.
     Signed by C. C. Youngblood, W. L. Dyson and W. J. Way, committee.

AN AUTOPSY ORDERED.
Action of the Grand Jury in the Ran-
dall Case.

    A. T. Randall, an aged man, and by profession, a school teacher, was found dead near the intersection of Wood and Jefferson streets last Monday night. There were no marks of violence on the body, but fould play was hinted at. It was surmised by many that the unfortunate man had been drugged in one of the resorts in that section of the city. Deputy Sheriff Jack Cabell summoned a number of persons to appear before the grand jury and that body made a searching investigation.  Yesterday, an autopsy was ordered by the grand jury and the real facts will doubtless be discovered by the coroner and the physician. Randall was a Kentuckian by birth, taught school for many years in that stake and came to Texas two years ago, locating in Bosque county.
