Friends will please accept this intimation.

Miss Maggie McMullen, an estimable young lady, who came here from Mount Forest about 8 years ago, died this morning at the residence of Mrs. Murphy, corner of Wellington street and Copeland avenue, and it is not unlikely that as a result of her death her friends will ask for an investigation into the methods employed by Christian Scientists. Although she had been ailing for nearly a year from consumption, it was not until a few days ago that a doctor was called in to attend her, and as soon as he saw her, he pronounced her case hopeless.

The story of Miss McMullen’s illness is a very sad one. When she came to this city from Mount Forest, she secured a good position as a domestic, and later secured a position for her younger sister with the same family. Both girls were highly thought of. Having read about the work of Christian Scientists the elder girl, out of a spirit of curiosity, began to inquire into that bodies methods of curing and healing. It was not long until both she and her sister became connected with the order, and both were induced to leave their situations.


They went to work in a factory, but they were not able to earn sufficient to pay for their keep, and went out to service again. Some months ago deceased suffered from a cold, and it settled on her lungs, consumption resulted. When she was no longer able to work, she returned to the home, but no steps were taken, other than those usually employed by Christian Scientists to check the dread disease. She gradually grew worse and was placed in a house on Emerald street north. Her friends were not notified of her illness, and, in fact, they now allege that the Christian Scientists exercised their influence over her to keep her from communicating with relatives or friends. It was not until Christmas when a friend from the country came in to visit her that the truth of her case became generally known. She was found in a dying condition, and a doctor was at once sent for, but he could not do anything for her. The girl’s sweetheart, to whom she was to have been married in the spring, once communicated with, and when he arrived in Hamilton was much surprised at the state of affairs. He immediately made arrangements to have her transferred to a more comfortable home, paying no attention to the objections made by the Christian Scientists. He also succeeded in convincing that her only hope was to call in a doctor, but the medical man’s services were of no avail.

The girl’s mother arrived from Regina, N.W.T., a couple of days ago, and is heartbroken over her daughter’s death.

When the girl’s father died, he left her considerable money, but no trace of it can now be found. Her sister still sticks to the Christian Scientists, but her friends have arranged to have her taken away from Hamilton,

Ex. Ald. John Field died this morning. He had been in poor health for some time and the end was not unexpected.

The deceased gentleman was born in Beverley, Yorkshire, England, on Aug. 20, 1834, and was consequently in his 68th year. In 1854, he joined the British Navy and served his country in China under Admiral Seymour, and Commodore Keppel. In 1859, he came to Canada, first settling in Toronto, where he took an active part in organizing the Toronto Naval Brigade, under Capt. McMaster. He was a member of the active forces and was called out for service during the Fenian raid of 1866.

Mr. Field was a locomotive engineer by trade and was for many years employed on the G.W.R. and G.T.R. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, of Unity Lodge, I.O.O.F., and also of the Masonic fraternity. He was elected to the City Council in 1887, and again in 1894, serving the City well. He was also a Justice of the Peace. Six years ago he was appointed engineer of the high level station, and since that time he had devoted himself strictly to the duties of the position.

URLIN (Dutton, Ont.) Jan 10 - The jury in the Urlin inquest came to a partial verdict at half-past

twelve this morning, after being closeted for six hours. They agreed as to death of deceased by bullet wounds inflicted in the hen house, on either Saturday night or Sunday morning. The jury disagreed as to who fired the revolver, eleven holding that Urlin fired the revolver, and two agreeing that he came to his death from bullet wounds caused by himself or parties unknown.


B.F. Honsinger, St. Thomas, and a brother-in-law of deceased, was the first witness today. He related how he had given assistance to deceased. He was on intimate terms with him. His anxiety about Mr. Urlin was aroused by his daughter who had been visiting Urlin’s family saying that her uncle acted strangely. Witness was in Dutton ten days prior to the death of deceased, but thought him perfectly sane though downcast. He had good opinions of the Hertel brothers. He was surprised when he heard of his death, but believed Urlin killed himself.

The result of the post-mortem made by Doctors Alex McKillop, and John Carscadden was submitted. It stated that two wounds were found behind the ear, around both of which were powder marks and burned skin. The bullet in the front wound was traced to the thickest portions of the skull for three inches, but could not be found.

The bullet in the posterior wound was traced through the upper and lower parts of the brain three inches, and found lodged in the upper portion.

The examination of Dr. McKillop was commenced and continued until adjournment at noon.

He said that the posterior wound would be instantly fatal, if front wound would cause concussion of the brain, and probably stun the man. He thought a man might recover sufficiently from the effects of this wound to inflict the posterior wound, but it would be some time. He thought it possible that a man might inflict the two wounds, but that it was very doubtful.

Doctor Carscadden was also examined and agreed with Dr. McKillop.

D.J. Donahue, K.C., addressed the jury for an hour and a half and was followed by Colin Leitch for the family of deceased and Coroner Ling.

LEVY - At his late residence 143 James street south, Saturday, January 11th, Herman Levy, aged 60 years and 6 months. Funeral Tuesday. Private. No flowers.

Death claimed a most highly esteemed citizen in Herman Levy, late on Saturday evening, at his late home, 143 James street south. The deceased had been in poor health for about four years, but the illness that ended fatally began about ten days ago, with pneumonia. He had practically recovered from it at the latter part of last week, but heart failure supervened and brought the end, at the age of 69 years.

The deceased was born in Trevas, Prussia, and came to Hamilton in 1857. He began business as a jeweller and in 1860 was joined by his brother Abraham, the firm being known as H.& A. Levy. This continued until 1871 when the name was changed to Levy Bros., with the deceased as senior member, and so continued until the business was converted into a joint stock company in 1893, with A. Levy, president and the deceased as vice president. From that time the deceased was not directly associated with the conduct of the company’s business. In 1898 he gave active association retaining only a small interest in the company.

Mr. Levy was for years treasurer of Anshe Sholem synagogue. He was not fond of publicity, and all he did to benefit the city and aid the needy was done in a quiet, unostentatious way. The deceased was known in the jewellery business from one end of Canada to the other, having in his earlier years travelled extensively as a salesman. He was the soul of honour, and his integrity was unimpeachable. He died, leaving nothing but pleasant remembrances behind him.

Besides Mrs. Levy, there are living of the family three sons, Adolphe, Gabriel, and Joseph, and one daughter named Rose.

The funeral, which will take place tomorrow, afternoon at the Jewish cemetery over the Mountain.

The pall-bearers were: Charles Mooney, Morris Foley, and John Fleming, representing the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and M.J. O’Reilly, John Lawlor, and Martin Barry.


KRONSBEIN - In his little hovel on Orchard Hill, Henry Kronsbein, who at one time owned considerable property in the centre of the city, was found in a dying condition Saturday evening.

Ald. Wm. Findlay was one of the first to learn of the unfortunate man’s condition, and he lost no time in notifying the police department, and the ambulance was sent to the old man’s humble abode to remove him to the hospital. Officer Knox was in charge of the ambulance, and he found the old man in a most pitiable condition. His place was cold and filthy. The only other occupants were about half a hundred of chickens and a number of geese., and two of chickens were cold in death. There was no fire in the house and little or no food. The dying man’s bed was a bundle of hay, and the house furnishings consisted of a box and table and a few other articles. From these surrounding the dying man was removed to the hospital, where he was given a bath and put in a comfortable bed. All that medical skill could do was done for him. But the work of the doctors was of no avail and he died a few hours later.

The deceased was a bachelor and so far as is known had no relatives in this part of the country. A cousin is supposed to reside in Rochester. The dead man had resided in Hamilton for over half a century. He was a tailor by trade and for years was employed making clothing for the Sanford company. He had a shop on John street and afterwards on Jackson street east. He never enjoyed the comforts of life and even when he had money slept on a pile of rags, in his tailor shop, and lived on the cheapest of food. At one time he was supposed to be worth about sixty thousand dollars. He built the Kronsbein Block east of the Hamilton Club, put soon afterwards mortgaged it to buy other property. He speculated in property until he lost all his money. His last property deal was with the T.H.& B Railway company. He owned an old house at the corner of Walnut and Hunter streets, and when the company asked the price on it, he demanded $1,700. The company offered him about $900, but he preferred to go to law. The result was that he was awarded only $600, and out of this he had to pay the costs, which were so high that not a cent of the money was left with which to pay his own lawyer.

He was an eccentric old man, and after moving from Jackson street east to Orchard Hill a couple of years ago, lived the life of a hermit. It is likely he will be given a decent burial by the loan company that holds the mortgage on his Main street property. His chickens and other belongings were transferred to No. 4 police station.

KILLNER (see Kilner, Kelner. Ed.) (Uxbridge, Ont.) Jan 12 - Edith Killner, whose home was in Hamilton, Ontario, was found frozen to death about seven miles south of here this morning. She had come here from Hamilton only about a week ago, and was staying at he home of Fred Jaggard. Mr. and Mrs. Jaggard was in town yesterday and left Miss Killner in charge of the children.

About 6 o’clock last evening she, going to Toronto, made up a bundle of clothing and started out. This was last seen of her alive. On going through a bush road this morning, Mr. Jaggard found her remains almost covered with snow.

The young woman was well known in Hamilton but the police have not officially notified of her death. Her father and mother are both dead, but she has one brother in the employ of the Sanford Manufacturing company, and another working at W.B. Whipple, printer. Another brother is confined in the asylum. The girl was in trouble some time ago. She got off, and left here about ten days ago to go to Uxbridge to act as a domestic in Mr. Jaggard’s house. Officer William Hunter of the Children’s Aid society is interesting himself in the case. One of the girl’s brothers left for Uxbridge this morning.

(Uxbridge, Ontario) - Jan 13 - With reference to the death of Edith Killner here on Saturday night, the only new fact in the case is that County Crown Attorney Farewell of Whitby, has been notified and will be here this evening, when a full investigation will be made.

 

THOMAS - Mrs. Margaret Thomas, who since November 23 (with the exception of three weeks,

when she was being treated in the City hospital) had been an inmate of the city jail, died in that institution late Saturday night. She was formerly an inmate of St. Peter’s home, but early in November developed signs of insanity and became so unruly that the home authorities preferred a charge of insanity against her and had her removed to the jail. Doctor Landgrill did not consider her a fit subject for the asylum, and she was being kept in the jail until a more suitable home could be found for her. About Christmas she was taken to the hospital, but the doctors could do nothing for her, and she was sent back to the jail last Monday. Inflammatory rheumatism was the cause of her death.

Mrs. Thomas came here from Cayuga. She said she was 44 years of age, and that her husband had deserted her. Her father, Adam Stewart, resides near Cheapside, and she had a brother-in-law residing in Dunnville. Both have been communicated with. Her remains had been handed over to Undertaker Doddsworth to be prepared for burial. Coroner White held an inquest at the jail this morning, and the jury, which was made up of prisoners and freeman, came to the conclusion that death was due to natural causes.

KILNER (see Killner, Kelner. Ed.) (Uxbridge) Jan 14 - The coroner’s jury empanelled to inquire into the circumstances surround the death of Edith Kilner, who was found frozen to death near here on Sunday morning, returned the following verdict; “that this jury find that Edith Kilner came to her death by exposure caused by, we believe, wandering away in ravines and became lost between the 6th and 7th concessions of the township of Uxbridge, and before being able to find her way back was frozen to death, and the jury also fine that there is no blame attached to anyone”. (Special) - Edith Kilner came to Uxbridge on Jan 2, on the evening train. She had no money and stayed all night at the Mansion house. She went to Glen Major, seven miles south, to Fred Jaggard’s, a former resident of Hamilton. On Saturday last, Jaggard and his wife came to Uxbridge, leaving Edith with their children. They returned home between 10 and 11 p.m. and found that Edith had left about 6 o’clock, taking her clothes and telling the children she was going to Toronto. Next morning Jaggard went out to look at some traps and found her about 65 rods from the house, frozen to death and the body almost submerged in snow. The red hat, which Edith wore, first attracted his attention. He at once notified the local authorities, and Coroner Bascom and Constable Frankish, went down and removed the body to Jaggard’s, and on Monday Undertaker Low removed the remains to his establishment at Uxbridge. Tuesday morning Coroner Bascom empanelled a jury. The evidence of Jaggard, his wife, and two small boys corroborated the account given, and showed that she had been acting queerly since coming to their place. They did not know she was coming. Dr. Forest testified that there were no marks of violence. The deceased brother, Edward, of Hamilton was put in the box, but could furnish no evidence as to why his sister came here. The general impression was that the girl was temporarily insane and despondent, and the desolate surroundings only tended to increase her despair.

Glen Major is one of the wildest regions in Ontario.

Edward Kilner, brother of the young woman, has not yet returned to the city. This morning his brother received a letter from him stating that after the inquest the remains would be brought to Hamilton for internment, but no particulars of the young woman’s death were given. Undertaker Doddsworth has received instructions to take charge of the body, which will probably arrive here tonight, and to make arrangements for the funeral.

CORBETT (Toronto) Jan 14 - An immense cake of soap fell on William Corbett, an employee at the Morse Soap works, 531 Front street east, yesterday morning, and inflicted injuries which caused his death early last evening at his residence, 48 Munro street.

Several of the men were engaged in moving kettles which were packed in a storeroom. Beside the kettles was a cake of soap, which had been hardening for eight years. It toppled over and struck Corbett on the left side of the head, inflicting a wound which was stitched up by Doctors Rowan and Simpson. The ambulance then took him to his home, no serious results being apprehended.

Deceased leaves a widow and several children. He was 40 years of age.

The deceased was born near Carlisle, Wentworth county, 35 years ago. He left school when a mere lad and began to work, but an attack of inflammatory rheumatism, when he was about fifteen years of age, left him in such poor health that he was unfitted for any kind of exacting work. It was then that the idea of improving the period of impaired health by study occurred to him, and he returned to the Dundas highschool, from which he graduated two years later. He entered Queen’s University at Kingston in 1892 to prepare himself for the Presbyterian ministry. He graduated in 1899 with a degree of M.A.

In the spring of 1900, he accepted the pastorate of Knox church, at Little Current, on Manitoulin Island, and entered with much enthusiasm upon his work.

As a man he was broad and tolerant in his views, and brave and fearless in expressing them. His temperament was genial and friendly. As a pulpit orator he was forceful and eloquent, as pastor and friend he was tender and true.

TAYLOR (Peterboro) Jan 15 - Lottie Taylor, the fifteen-year-old-daughter of Thomas Taylor, a farmer living about nine miles from Havelock, Saturday last, went to one of the Havelock drug stores and purchased five grains of strychnine saying she wanted to kill two dogs. Saturday night she went home attired herself in clean clothing wrote a note to her father and mother, then took the fatal dose and threw herself on the bed. During the night her father, who is in feeble health, had occasion to call her, but receiving no response went to her room and found her dead. The note she left is a remarkable one for a fifteen-year-old-girl to write under such circumstances. It read as follows; “Dear Father and Brother - I cannot be with you always. You all seem to think that I have disgraced you all. I think I will put a finishing touch on it all. I will my soul to God, and pray that you will all go to heaven when you die, and I died forever. I hope people will be able to talk about me to their satisfaction when I am gone. Goodbye to all. God be merciful to me”. LOTTIE

“Give the ring to Harry, the comb is Clara King’s”.

The report to the Coroner says no motive can be assigned for the wilful act of the girl, but it appears that on Tuesday of last week the deceased, who had shown great fondness for dancing, attended a dance, when some objection was made to her escort, and she was told she must not come again if she continued to keep the same company. This, and the talk she made have imagined had arisen, so worked upon her feelings that she decided on an act of self-destruction which she carried out with such fatal determination. No inquest was considered necessary.

The girl’s father is a well-to-do farmer of Belmont township, and the family very respectable.

His friends are strongly of the opinion that he was murdered, and insist on a thorough investigation.

Accounts from the finding of the body differ paterially. One story is that Minnie Masonville, a young woman employed at the hotel, stumbled over the body in passing along the road near the Inn .Albert Drouillard a brother of the dead man and a well-known customs officer of Windsor declares, however, that when he reached the hotel he was told by one of the mail habitues that the body had been found on the steps of the barn in the rear.

As near as can be learned, Drouillard was last seen alive by his friends early in the afternoon, when he stated he was going into the country to give an estimate on some building work. The appearance of the body has excited suspicion. There is an ugly-looking wound covering four square inches on the back of the head, which may have been caused by a blow from a blunt instrument, or possibly from a fall, has been suggested, although the story that Drouillard toppled over on the hard ground does not agree with the statement that the body was discovered in a sitting posture. The left eye was also considerably discoloured and there is a considerable abrasion of the skin of the left cheek.

The dead man was 43 years old and unmarried. He had been a resident of Walkerville for several years. Coroner Rheum has ordered an inquest which will be held tomorrow.

Between 5 and 6 o’clock last night, Charles Campbell, 213 Napier street, employed as section boss on the C.P.R. spur, met with an accident which resulted fatally. The accident occurred in the cut behind the cemetery on the spur. Campbell had charge of this section of the road. Yesterday afternoon he went out to inspect it to make sure that the roadbed had not been damaged by the heavy thaw. A freight train, on its way to Toronto, passed him and he continued to walk south toward the junction.

Unfortunately the freight got stalled at the junction of the spur and the G.T.R., and had to back down to get a fresh start up the slight incline. Campbell was walking on the devil strip, and evidently did not hear the train approaching, for he made no effort to get out of the way. Conductor McEnemy, who was on the back step of the caboose, did all in his power to attract Campbell’s attention, but his efforts were of no avail, and the unfortunate man was struck by the steps of the caboose, and thrown into the ditch.

The train was stopped, and when the train hands reached the injured man’s side he was still breathing, but was unconscious. No time was lost in summoning medical assistance, but the poor fellow’s skull was crushed in, and he died before a doctor arrived. The ambulance was telephoned for, and his remains were removed to the morgue.

Coroner Griffin ordered an inquest which was opened at noon today at the City hospital. The following jury was summoned by Constable Canary; F. England, F. Cronin, M. Birell, A. Herron, John Littlehales, W. Cameron, C. Phillips, John Wilson, C. Condon, W.R. Webb, J. Zimmerman John Brown, J. Baker and Anthony Allcock.

DROULLIARD (Windsor, Ontario) Jan 27 - At the inquiry on Saturday night into the cause of the death of Fred Droulliard, James Masonville testified that his brother Ed, helped him to put Droulliard into the shed at the Dewdrop Inn, where Droulliard was found dead with his skull fractured, and covered him with blankets. Ed denied this, he said Droulliard was in a sitting position.

Twenty-six years ago, he removed to New Orleans, where he was placed in charge of St. Paul’s parish.

LISTER (Toronto) Feb 10 - Hon. Justice Lister, of the court of appeal, died very suddenly at his residence, 14 Walmer road, shortly after 3:00 o’clock yesterday morning.

His Lordship was at his chambers in Osgoode Hall until after 5 o’clock on Saturday evening and was in such good spirits that on leaving the hall, he went for a long walk with a friend. After dinner, he suffered from indigestion, but soon gained relief, and was apparently in his usual health when he retired for the night. About 3 :00 o’clock in the morning his Lordship was attacked with vomiting and expired shortly afterwards. For some time past his heart had been in a feeble condition, and his death was due to collapse of that organ.

In appearance, Justice Lister was a rugged hearty man, but the tireless energy which characterised throughout his life eventually undermined his strength and found him when he received his appointment to the court of appeal on June 22, 1893, with what is medically termed a standing weak heart.

James Frederick Lister was born at Belleville on June 21, 1848. He was the 5th son of Capt. George Lister, of the British revenue service, his mother being the daughter of Capt. James Davis of the Royal Navy. He was educated at the Sarnia Grammar school. He studied law under his uncle, the late Judge Davis. He was admitted as an attorney in 1865, and was called to the bar in 1875.

In politics his lordship was an uncompromising Liberal. He entered the Dominion parliament as the member for West Lambton in the general elections of 1882, and retained the seat up to the time of his appointment to the bench on June 22, 1898.

He was hard working, eminently fair, and possessed to a degree the judicial mind so essential to a position on the court of appeal.

In 1864, Mr. Lister married Eliza, only daughter of Andrew Alexander, of Sarnia. His widow, together with four daughters and two sons survive. The daughters are: Mrs. (Dr.) Harrison, Sioux Ste Marie, Mich: Mrs. F.R. Waddell, Hamilton, and Miss Lister and Miss Frances, at home. The sons are: Capt. Lister of Fredericton, N.B., and Blake at home.

While assisting to tear down an old veranda at the north west corner of the Grand Trunk freight sheds, Strachan street, this morning, John Apsley, a bridge carpenter, was struck by a falling timber

 and fatally injured. His neck was broken and his skull crushed in, and he died almost instantly. An inquest was ordered by Coroner Wolverton, and it was opened at the city hospital at 1:30 this afternoon.


The accident occurred shortly after 11:00 o’clock. Apsley was in foreman John Swartz’s gang and was an experienced railroad man, having been in the employ of the G.T.R. company for a number of years. The veranda was a very heavy one and was being taken down in 15 foot sections. Heavy timbers were put underneath the front of it to support it, while the bolts (which fastened it to the stone wall) were loosened. The bolts in the section on which Apsley was working had been unfastened, and all that was required to bring it down was to knock out the support. This duty was assigned to Apsley and he struck the support a heavy blow with the back of an axe, and started to run for a place of safety. The support fell in a different direction to what he expected and before he could get out of the way struck him a severe blow on the shoulder knocking him down. When he fell his head struck a rail and the unfortunate man’s skull was crushed in.

The deceased was an Irishman about 30 years of age and unmarried. So far as is known he had not any relatives residing in this part of the country. He resided in Hamilton some years ago, but afterwards went to Orillia to work under Inspector Henry Cranston with whom he boarded.

Constable Campaign summoned a jury, which met at the hospital, and after viewing the remains adjourned to meet again at No. 3 police station tomorrow night.

APSLEY - Every effort to find the relatives of the late John Apsley, who was killed while assisting to tear down a veranda at the Grand Trunk freight sheds Monday morning, has proved fruitless. The deceased was of a quiet disposition and, and far as is known never told any person where he came from or anything about his life previous to coming to Hamilton. He had worked on the Grand Trunk railway first as a labourer, and afterwards as a bridge carpenter, for about twelve years, but not one of his fellow workmen knows very much about him. As he had considerable money in the bank and was insured in the Grand Trunk Provident society, the authorities are very anxious to find his rightful heir.

The inquest into the cause of his death was concluded last night. The first witness examined was John Swartz, foreman of the gang in which Apsley worked. He described the accident, his story being practically the same as that already published. When the deceased knocked the prop from beneath the veranda, he expected it would fall inwards as the others had, but for some unknown reason it fell outwards. The job was not considered to be a particularly a dangerous one. He never knew a prop could fall forward before.

Nicholas Macdonald, Martin McGowan, and James Kennedy, all-fellow employees of the deceased, corroborated the story as told by the foreman, but none of them could explain how it was that the prop fell forwards. They were all of the opinion that every reasonable precaution had been taken to prevent an accident, and that deceased death was purely accidental.

Doctor MacKelcan described the nature of the deceased wounds. Death he said, was due to a fracture at the base of the skull. Constable Campaign said he had search the effects of deceased but found nothing to show who his relatives or friends were.

The jury brought in the following verdict; “Deceased, John Apsley, came to his death by being accidentally struck on the head by a scantling while at work, and that no blame should be attached to any person”.

COOPER (Parry Sound, Ontario) March 15 - A report of a serious affair which occurred near Seguin Falls Post office a few days ago has just reached here.


Samuel Cooper, a lumberman, who had been working near Seguin Falls during the winter, some time ago showed signs of being demented. He was considered harmless however. A few days ago, after walking around all night, he went to the house of Thomas Hooper, with whom it is said he had some little troubles before, and it is alleged attempted to go upstairs. Hooper told him his wife was ill and wished him to go out of the house. Cooper then said he was “God almighty” and if he had touched the woman she would recover, and persisted in his efforts to get upstairs. Hooper, it is said, there upon attacked him with an axe. Two other men who were present, and whose names are given as Clair, and Basister, took part in the fight. It is said that six or seven serious wounds were inflicted on Cooper and that he was also shot in the leg. On the following day he was taken to the hospital at Huntsville, where he died yesterday. District Constable Hanna at the insistence of Crown Attorney Haight, has been dispatched to Seguin Falls to arrest Cooper and the others who took part in the affair. An inquest is being held at Huntsville today.

A dispatch from Huntsville announces the death of a man of the name of Samuel Cooper, who was taken to Huntsville from Seguin Falls a few days ago suffering from the effects of cuts and gunshot wounds. No particulars are given as to how Cooper received the injuries that proved fatal, but Coroner Reece, of Huntsville, will hold an inquest on the body today.

Deceased was born in Toronto and worked for a time about Heever’s Dutch Farm hotel, east Toronto. Some five years ago he left the city and went to farm near Birk’s Falls. His relatives have heard but little of him since that time. He has a brother George Cooper, who works as a labourer in Todmorden, and lives with his sister, Mrs. William Ashley, at the Plains, Todmorden. He has also a sister-in-law living in Little York. Both his parents are dead. He was unmarried and about 42 years of age.

No notification of Cooper’s death or particulars as to how he came by his injuries had reached the relatives up to the time a reporter saw them last night, but they have no doubt that the dead man is Samuel Cooper, of Toronto their relative.

QUIRK (Brantford, Ontario) March 24 - A murder was committed in Brantford at midnight on Sunday. James Quirk, the well-known runner and athlete and one of the proprietors of the Commercial hotel, was the victim. Mr. Quirk was around the hotel as usual Sunday evening. Shortly after 10 o’clock he went out with a friend, David Thomas, and had a dish of oysters at Fleming’s restaurant. Returning to he hotel, he was seen by his partner Mr. Toole, who left him downstairs and went to bed. Bob Ryan, the cook of the hotel, was also sitting in the public reading room at the time.

About midnight, a bell boy named Eddie Kenny, whose room is back of the hotel, and near the bar, heard a shout and then groans coming from the barn. He went to his window and the groans continued. He ran downstairs and told Ryan that he thought someone in the barn had been kicked by a horse. Ryan rushed out to the barn and found the electric lights turned on, and in a little harness room at the foot of the steps, leading from the loft, he was horrified to see the body of Quirk head downward in a big pool of blood.

Mr. Toole arrived on the scene shortly afterwards, and raising the body, found that his partner had been terribly injured. Quirk opened his eyes once but that was the only movement of life he ever made.

Dr. Digby and the police were summoned, and shortly afterwards Dr. Fissette arrived.

A Courier reporter who arrived at the hotel at 2:00 o’clock, found Chief Vaughan, Sergeant Wallace, and Constable Donnelly investigating the tragedy in company with the coroner. In the loft over the barn, Quirk kept some valuable gamecocks and chickens. The supposition is that about 20 minutes to twelve he went out to the barn to see the chickens, or perhaps he had been attracted by hearing a noise. He turned on the electric lights and then ascended the narrow steps. At the top he must have been attacked and struck with some heavy weapon. The top of his head was badly smashed in with two heavy blows, while a deep gash was also made over the right eye.

The murderer apparently made his escape through the large door leading from the yard to Dalhousie street. This door had been closed and barred by the hostler. The bars were found by the police thrown down and the big gate partly open.

The murdered man was 43 years of age, and leaves a wife and two bright girls. His father is conductor Quirk of Wingham.

On the request of the Brantford crown authorities, the attorney general this morning deputed

Inspector John Murray to investigate the circumstances attending the death of James Quirk, the Brantford hotel keeper supposed to be murdered in his own barn there yesterday.

McGILL, CHARLTON, MacDONALD (St. Thomas, Ontario) March 28 - As the result of a head-on collision of two freight trains on the Wabash at Jarvis at 7 o’clock this morning, engineers McGill, and Charlton, and Conductor Henry Macdonald are dead, and Martin Donelly a brakeman, is suffering from several broken ribs and injuries to his head.

The accident was due partly to a mistake made by Charlton, and partly owing to a dense fog. Charlton had crossing orders at Jarvis, and stopped there as instructed, but instead of taking the siding at the west switch, he ran up the main line beyond the east switch and backed in. He had got his train clear of the main line with the exception of locomotive, tender and two cars, when the west-bound freight, under Conductor Macdonald which he was to cross, crashed into his engine.

The fog was so thick that McGill was unaware of the impending danger until it was too late.

McGill was killed instantly, his body being later found in the fire-box of his engine, but Charlton lived for about an hour after he had been taken from the wreck. The firemen saved their lives by jumping. Macdonald was riding in the cab of McGill’s engine and was so badly mutilated that it was impossible to collect his remains from the wreck for removal to St. Thomas.

The bodies of the two engineers and the engine brakeman were brought to St . Thomas and the wrecking train sent out to clear away the wreckage. Both engines and a number of cars were badly damaged.

All the dead were residents of St. Thomas and were married. Two of them, McGill and Charlton leave families.

Life was not extinct but while Easley was being carried into the hotel Dr. A.B. Cook was sent for.

He administered restoratives to the unfortunate man and before long had him in a condition to sit up and talk.

Mrs. Ellen Nehin, 161 Young street, died at her home yesterday afternoon, making the second to succumb to the effects of coal gas poisoning. Mr. Nehin passed away at an early hour yesterday morning, and his companion life survived by only a few hours. Neither regained consciousness before death, although everything that was possible to do was done by Dr. Balfe to prolong the lives of the unfortunate couple. Had it not been for the fact that she had been ailing for some time, it is believed that Mrs. Nehin would have pulled through. Mrs. Nehin was of a bright and cheerful disposition and enjoyed the acquaintance of a large circle of friends.

HAM (Toronto) April 9 - The death in the General hospital yesterday of William Ham, an employee of Taylor’s Brewery, 32 years of age, and resident of John street, East Toronto Village, somewhat puzzled the authorities. The mystery was caused by the finding of a bullet wound, unrecognized as such until after the man had died. Dr. Walters, of East Toronto, however cleared up the affair last night by stating he was aware that Ham had tried to shoot himself on Sunday, but that injury could have had nothing whatever to do to the man’s death.

On the strength of an order signed by Dr. Walters, as reeve as East Toronto Village, Ham was admitted to the General hospital on Sunday night. He was supposed to be suffering from acute pneumonia, and was treated accordingly. A scalp wound which appeared on the back of his head he accounted for by saying he had fallen on a nail.

At 11:30 yesterday morning Ham died, and a post-mortem examination was held by Dr. Caven.


A reporter visited Dr. Walters at East Toronto last night and learned the true inwardness of the case. The doctor had he said, been called to see Ham on Friday last. He found him suffering from pneumonia and enlargement of the liver, due to excessive indulgence in liquor. Liquor was denied him and delirium tremens followed. At dinner time on Sunday he had received a call to attend deceased. On his arrival he found him lying on the floor with his head in a pool of blood. The blood was issuing from a wound to the back of his head, and nearby was an old-fashioned rim-fire pistol, from which a shot had been recently been fired. He did not regard the wound as serious because the bullet did not enter the skull. On account of his other ailments, Doctor Walters had him removed to the hospital.

Dr. O’Reilly, superintendent of the general hospital, stated last night that Mrs. Ham, when a post-mortem examination had been suggested to her, readily consented. Dr. Caven, who conducted the post-mortem, found a small flattened bullet, probably 22 caliber, on the skull, immediately under the scalp, in the wound which the man said he had received by falling on a nail. The bullet had not penetrated the brain. Nothing had been said to the hospital authorities before the man’s death to lead them to suppose he attempted suicide.

Deceased leaves a widow and two small children.

Ex- Ald. Wm. Magee, one of Hamilton’s oldest, best known and most highly-respected citizens, passed away yesterday afternoon at his residence, 320 James street north. He was 85 years of age, and while he had been ill since Christmas, the end came rather unexpectedly. He had been talking to some friends, and just as they left the room he took a choking spell, and died before medical aid could be summoned.

Mr. Magee was what as commonly known as a self-made man. He was born in Donegal, Ireland, in 1817, and when about 23 years of age, came to Canada to seek his fortune, settling in Ottawa, where he resided for about 8 years. In 1850, he came to Hamilton and started up in the flour and feed business, and at the time of his death was the only flour and feed dealer in Hamilton. He paid close attention to his business and prospered. Some years later he owned the grain vessels, Iris and Florence, and had one of the largest grain warehouses in the city at the foot of Bay street. Considering his age, he was a particularly active man and up till the time he was taken ill took an active interest in his business. In 1875 - 78, he was elected to represent ward 3 in the City council, the Mayor at that time being George Reach.


Deceased leaves two sons - Wm. Jr., and Frank, of the Magee-Walton Ice and Coal company - and three daughters - Misses Annie, Tillie, and Mary - all residing at home, to mourn his loss. One sister, two years older than the deceased, resides in Ireland, and a brother, Robert Magee, resides at Adolphustown, Ont. The funeral will take place at 2:30 Monday afternoon.

 

JENNETT (Detroit) April 11 - Joseph M. Miller, arrested on a charge of murdering Miss Jennett, this morning confessed to his crime. After being in the sweat-box an hour and twenty minutes, he broke down. Assistant prosecutor Mirriam, three officers, and the official stenographer of the police department, were present. Miller admitted that he was responsible for the girl’s condition. He said he offered to send Miss Jennett to a hospital but she refused to go, insisting that he leave his family and go to some other city with her. This he would not do. Wednesday night, when he started from home for the lodge meeting, he had en engagement with the girl, and intended to kill her. He took the hatchet that was found by the officers yesterday in his kitchen with him. He secreted this on 17th street on his way to the meeting. When he left the lodge rooms, he secured the hatchet again and proceeded to the corner of 14th and Warren avenues where he met Miss Jennett. They walked over to 13th street and out to where the killing was done. Miller says they sat down on the sidewalk and talked for awhile, the girl urging him to abandon his family and leave the city with her. He then whipped out the hatchet and struck her in the head. When asked why he mutilated so, Miller said he had no recollection of anything after the first blow, until he found himself wiping the blood off his hatchet on the grass in the vacant lot.

Miss Jennett was a member of the Arnold M.E. church, the Maccabees and the daughters of Rebekah. She was an excellent pianist frequently playing at lodge meetings. The Maccabees met Monday nights at Howlett’s hall; The Rebakah’s Thursday.

Her parents were accustomed to leave the door unlocked whenever she was out late, and she came in and went to bed. Usually she was home at 10:00 o’clock.

(Woodstock, Ontario) - April 11 - Prof. Joseph M. Miller, the murderer of Miss Jennett, was, about 23 years ago, a resident of Woodstock. In 1879 he was confined in Woodstock jail on a serious jail of criminal operation. He was afterwards released on agreeing to marry the young woman in the question. Miller was married at the home of Jailer Cameron here. When in jail here he was 22 years of age, and at the time was living at Norwich. He is remembered here as a reckless young man, but a skilled musician.

His father died about 25 years ago in Woodstock, and his mother who was married again to Mr. Wetherall, of this city died about five years later. For the past five years Miller’s relatives in these parts have heard nothing concerning him.

After leaving Woodstock, Miller moved to Mt. Clemens, from there to Frazer, from Frazer to Chesterfield, from there to New Haven, and eight years ago he moved to Detroit.

GOLDMAN (Chicago, Ill., ) April 13 - Broken-hearted on account of a wayward son and driven to desperation because she was unable to get him out of prison, Mrs. Fanny Goldman, of Toronto, ended her life today by turning on the gas and taking carbolic acid salve in her room at 164 Madison street. She was dead when found by Mrs. Sarah Lipman, who detected the odour of gas in the halls.

Mrs. Goldman arrived in Chicago Friday hoping that she would be able to secure the freedom of her only boy, who is confined in the county jail on a robbery charge, and who, because of this second offence, must now return to the Pontiac reformatory, to finish serving the indeterminate sentence on the first charge, one of burglary committed several years ago.


In writing to his mother of his arrest, the boy had not given the cause of his detention. From letters found in Mrs. Goldman’s possession, she evidently believed he had been arrested in connection with the first case and had been leading an honest life since coming to Chicago recently. When she learned from the police the condition of the charge against him, she was overcome with grief. She visited the boy at the jail Saturday for the last time. There was a pitiable scene, and the mother departed firm in the conviction that it was beyond her power to aid him.

Since his release on parole, fifteen months ago, Goldman who is 22 years old, has spent much of his time at home. He had succeeded in passing a civil service examination for a postal position at Toronto. He took the announcement of his mother’s death with an exhibition of much feeling when notified by Jailor Whitman.

A gold watch and chain, four rings, three broaches, and $7.87 were found among the effects of the dead woman. The only letter she left was one she had written to her son, which had been returned to Toronto. Enclosed in this was a money order and a letter recommending him for a position.

Mrs. Goldman was the wife of F.H. Goldman, a jewellery dealer in Toronto. They lived at 56 Elizabeth street. She was 42 years old.

(Toronto) - April 14 - A telegram was received by the Toronto police yesterday telling of the suicide in Chicago of Mrs. Goldman, and asking them to notify the woman’s relatives living at the north west corner of Elizabeth and Louisa streets. Word was sent by H.F. Goldman at that address, and he left for Chicago last night.

It was learned from neighbours that Mr. and Mrs. Goldman have lived at the place indicated for some months past, and have had frequent domestic infelicities mostly due to disagreements over the son, Clarence Goldman, a pedlar. There was no one at the house last night, and nothing further could be found out about the family.

FOWLER (Toronto) April 16 - Great excitement prevails through York county, particularly in the neighbourhood of Newmarket, and the township of East Gwillimbury, over the discovery in the swamp of the body of William Fowler, a well-known farmer of the seventh concession. The man, who was 74 years of age, has been missing since Oct. 20 last, and it is stated that an autopsy will show in spite of the fact that little but the skeleton remains, that his death was probably due to violence.

Fowler was an unmarried man, and lived on the seventh concession of East Gwillimbury. It was commonly reported that he was in possession of considerable wealth. About the 20th of October last, he mysteriously disappeared, not the slightest trace of him being obtained, though Constable Savage and a number of search parties spent hours and days in a diligent and organized scouring of the country thereabouts. Whisperings went abroad at that time of foul play, but of nothing came of the search, strange disappearance was beginning to be forgotten, when the greatest excitement was aroused by the finding of the remains.

It was on Sunday last that William Goodwin, who owns the second farm north of Fowler’s place,  made the gruesome discovery. He was at the time engaged in looking for a lost sheep, and in a gully in a swamp he came upon what was scarcely more than the skeleton of a man covered with rags. The county authorities were notified, and by means of a peculiar pipe and a knife, the remains were identified as those of William Fowler.

The crown officers are now engaged in ascertaining the state of the business and private affairs of deceased, to see if any motive for foul play excited. It is expected that some interesting facts will be brought out when the inquiry is resumed on Monday night next.

Constable Savage is positive in stating that he and the search parties covered the very spot where the body was eventually found, and that it could not have been there at that time.

The case was reported to the crown authorities by Coroner Spence, and as they ascertained by investigation that all due care had been taken, that a duly qualified anaesthetist was engaged in the administration of the chloroform, the warrant for an inquest which the coroner has issued will probably be withdrawn.
