baliner, and rested in the reception room.
The Superior and City Courts adjourned

his death, but arrived to-night.
JUDGE LOCHRANE’S DEATH.
Judge O. A. Lochrane died between 12
uxd 1 o’clock this morning of heart disease.
He had been suffering from this disease for
several years, and had been under treatment
for it a number of months.
Judge Lochrane was a native of Ireland,
and was bom at Armagh, Aug. 12, 1820. He
came to this country before he reached his
majority and settled at Athens, Ga., where
lie had an acquaintance. He tiegan life
there as a clerk in a drug store.
Possessing a ready wit and considerable elo
quence he determined to study law, and en
tered the law office of Judge Joseph Henry
Lumpkin for that purpose. He rose quite
rapidly in the profession. After his admis
sion to the liar, and just prior to the war, he
was elected Judge of the Macon Circuit. In
that position he rendered some decisions rel
ative to the right of conscript soldiers,
which attracted some attention. After the
war he was appointed to fill a vacancy on
the Supreme bench by Gov. Bullock. At
the expiration of his term he
returned to the practice of his profession
which soon became large and lucrative. He
was one of the counsel of the Pullman Car
Company, and drew a handsome income
from that source. It is estimated that his
estate is worth between $300,000 and $400,-

Mme. Dieulafoy as a Dude.
Paris Dispatch to London Daily Telegraph
That distinguished novelist who wrote
“Indiana” and “Uonsuelo” was fond of
walking about Paris attired in man's

one paid attention, as George Sand was an
erratic woman of genius, ami geniuses have

cause the social ostracism of minor mortals.
The conduct of the celebrated writer has
lately been imitated by French women, who
have rather soajuiulized easy-going and
unpuritanical Parisians by appearing m pub

Rumor has it that the Prefect of Police,

A BRAVE YOUNO MAN.
A War Tale of the Evacuation of
F. .1. F. in the Americas Recorder.
When Gen. Bragg’s army evacuated
Corinth, Miss., in 1862, there was a great
deal of sickness among the soldiers, nearly
one-fourth of tlie army being unfit for ser
(.'apt. S. R. Weston, of Company H. Fifth
Georgia regiment, and myself (belonging to
Company E, same regiment), were on the
sick list and not able to march, but still able
to do light duty. So we were put in charge
of the sick of our regiment, who were to be
sent down on a separate train. AVhile we
were at the deiwjt getting the men
aboard and looking to their comfort,
we noticed another squad to our left,
as we faced the town, loading another train
with quartermasters’ and commissary stores,
ami everybody seemed to be in a hurry and
in some confusion. Every straggler wgs
put to work, and many of the sick were
made to work who ought to have been in
bed. Some boisterous, overbearing fellow
was bosibig tho job, aud if he ordered a man
to go to work and he rcfused he reported
him at once to Gen. Bragg, who seemed to
lie superintending the whole movement in
Finally a young soldier came along on his
way to the cars for the sick. He appeared
to lie about 20 years of age, tall ana hand
some, but pale and delicate. The man (or
In'utip commanding the work squad saw
him. and yelled out:
“Say, young man, fall in here and go to
work. Heave these goods into these cars,
and lie quick about it.”
Tlie young man replied:
“I am not able to work. If I were I
would lie with my company. ’’
“Eh? Won’t work, elii We’ll see about
that. General I” he hollowed out to Gen.
Bragg, who was passing, “here’s a man who
refuses to work,” pointing at the youth,who
stood as firm as a rock. Gen. Bragg stopped
and gazed at the young man, his eyas
blazing as no other man's eyes can blaze,
and repeated the order to help load those
cars at once. The young man repeated his
former answer, that he was not able to
w ork; had he been able to work he would
be able to march and would be with his
The General’s eyes seemed to flash fire as
“What! You dare disobey my orders?”
“I do,” calmly replied the young man.
The General called a lieutenant of a Lou
isiana company of regulars doing guard
duty, ami said:
“Take six of your company and carry this
man to that grove and shoot him.”
The Lieutenant called out six of his men
and ordored them to load their guns, and
while they were doing so Gen. Bragg beck
oned the Lieutenant, stepping behind a gar
den wall, spoke to him in a low tone not
heard by anyone else, and walked away.
The guard ms rched the young man to the
grove, about 100 yards to our right, and
placed him upon a stool against a large oak
and started to blindfold him, which he
would not permit, but took off his gold
watch and chain and a fine gold ring from
his finger, handed them to the Lieutenant,
and requested him to send them to his
mother, at the same time writing her name
and address on a piece of paper and hand
ing it to the Lieutenant, resumed his posi
tion against the tree, and with a proud
smile upon his lips and without a tremor in
his voice, he said:
“Now sir, I am ready.”
The Lieutenant stepped off ten paces,
brought his men to “attention” and com
manded, in a loud voice, distinctly heaid by
us: ‘ ‘Ready! —Aim. ”
I became so weak I thought I should faint
and caught hold of a small oak for support
and closed my eyes to shut out the aw ful
deed. There sat the young man, gazing into
the muzzles of six muskets pointed at his
heart, a single one of which might send his
soul into eternity in the twinkling of an eye.
He looked on as calmly as if he was looking
at a camera, and was simply having his
photograph taken. But the Lieutenant's
next command was: “Recover arms!”
which was willingly and promptly obeyed.
The Lieutenant then stepped up to the
young man, bade him rise, grasped his
hand in admiration, returned his watch and
ring which he received with a polite bow,
anti the word “thanks,” and walked away
as unconcerned as if nothing unusual hail
The Lieutenant and his men returned to
their former position, in a few pares of
where we were, and pretty soon Gen. Bragg
returned and asked:
“Where is the boy?”
“Gone,” said the Lieutenant.
“What did you do?” asked the General.
“Just exactly as you directed,” replied the
Lieutenant, fie handed me his watch and
ring to send to his mother, took his position,
refused to be blindfolded, said he was ready,
and never batted his eyes even when we
were at ‘aim.’ He’s the bravestjman I ever
saw in my life!” And- tears came into the
“Who is he, and where is he?” demanded
tin- Geperal, evincing much interest and
looking in every direction.
“1 don’t know,” answered the Lieutenant.
“Here’s his mother’s name and address,”
handing him a slip of paper. He glanced at
it, put it in his vest pocket, and said:
“Well, find him. I’ll promote him.” And
away they went to find the young hero.
But whether they ever found him, and if
so, what came of it, I never knew.
When Gen. Bragg first gave the order to
shoot the young man, I suppose t here wore
100 soldiers who heard it. They soon scam
pered away, some to work, some to hide out,
and others —too sick to do either—took the
places assigned them in the cars. And only
Capt. Weston and myself, and perhaps two
or three others, watched this episode to the
end. Those others all thought, and those
still living, think till this day that Gen.
Bragg had that young man shot. Bragg
was indeed a severe disciplinarian, but not
so liaii at heart as many deem him. ,

Caspar Staumbach Tells tho Story of
the Rahway Murder.
A St. Louis dispatch to the New York
Herald says: There is in jail at Salem, 111.,
a man who says his name is Caspar Straum
baeh, and that he committed the murder at
Rahway, N. J., last March, that has be
come famous as the Rahway murder
mystery. He makes a confession, in which
he says that he was a steamship steward by
occupation, and that on March 13 he was oil
a spree with a companion, a Swede named
The two went to Rahway and continued
drinking together for some time and were
greatly under the influence of liquor when
they saw a young girl across the railway
commons carrying a small basket. The
Swede, who seemed to know the girl, started
townixl the girl and she ran. He called to
her several times, addressing her as “Clara,”
andAelling her to stop, that be wanted to
talkfo her. .Seeing she would not heed his
calls, he ran after her. Just as he overtook
her he picked up a piece of lioard and struck
her on the side of tne head. She fell and he
struck her again.
Just then Straumbaeh, according to his
own story, came up, and, actuated by a
ferocity born of the liquor he had been
drjnking, pulled out his knife and saying he
would do his part, stoop'd over the pros
trate body of the girl and cut her throat.
He insists that he thought, and still thinks,
the girl was dead before he touched her.
After the killing, which, according to the
confession, was on March 13, 1887, about 5
o’clock p. m., hut which, according to the
proclamation of the Governor of New Jersev,
occurred March 26, the two men went di
rectly to New York city, where they con
tinued their spree for several days. They
then separated, and only met once after
Straumbaeh then intended to ship for
another voyage, but seems to have been con
science stricken, and imagined that the offi
cers were on his track. He .vent to a friend.
Mm. Augusta Gardner, living at No. 23
Bayard streat, New York, and told her
what he had done, as he felt as though he
could not keep his secret, and was confident
she would not betray him. The idea struck
him that he would go West and try to make
a fresh start in life among strange people
and in a strange country, where he would
be able to forget his great crime. Accord
ingly he started forward, arriving at the
little town of luka, in Marion county, 111.,
where he sought work as a farm laborer.
He got a job and soon betrayed himself
by his acts. Seeing something was wrong
with him, his employer questioned him very
closely as to his antecedents and finally put
the question as to what made him so
nervous. To this Straumbaeh replied that
he had something very bad in New Jersey
and his conscience tortured him.
The town constable, James W. Conley,
was informed of the fellow’s strange talk
and conduct, and he undertook to find out
what it all meant. This was a week ago.
TAKEN INTO CUSTODY.
The man made a confession of which the
substance is given above. On the strength
of this confession the man was taken into
custody and jailed at Salem, the county
seat. ’The Illinois officials then opened up
communication with the authorities at Rah
way, and kept the real cause of the arrest a
secret so far as the general public was con
cerned pending inquiry. Finally, being
convinced that they had'the right man, they
let the facts leak out.
The officers at Salem having received a
picture of the murdered girl, taken after she
was dead, They showed it to the prisoner
to-day, and he recognized it. He could not
give very definite information of his com
panion on the night of the murder, but says,
in his trunk, at No. 200 Chatham street,
near the Bowery, New York, is a picture of

is about 25 years old, 5 feet 2 “inches in
height, weighs 125 pounds, has blue eyes,
heavy auburn hair and several weeks’
growth of beard. At luka he sought a Ger
man and soon found one named John Bow
man, and told him his mind was troubled
and he wanted to tell him something. His
is a very straight story in the German lan
guage, and afterwards he made a written
confession in German and swore to it. A
photograph of the murder 'd girl was shown
him and he immediately identified it.

The communication contained an extract

thnt it was reported to him by several per
sons that the quarantine station of this port
was being run to the benefit of tlie Tug

whose names suggested to us, or
who the committte thought might lie able
to give any information of value touching
the management of the quarantine station.
The entire testimony was taken down in
